Starting a shmup thread to ask you why you haven't 1ALL'd a Twinbee game yet.>they're too hard!!Play Pop'n Twinbee then, that's on the easier side.
I don't play shmups unless they're presented by CAVE.
I saw the Top 25 shmup list on system11 forums and I saw the honorable mentions and I saw nothing worth liking or worth getting good at. Tbh . Maybe in the future someone will make better shmups?
>>7584248Wow you've 2ALL'D a twinbee game! Pretty crazy; those get super hard fast. Got a replay link?
>>7584191because I don't play dadshit, only touhou
This literally CANNOT be refuted.
>claims to 2all twinbee >even deletes the post when asked for proofDoes he have no shame boys?!
>>7585257Vimana 46-ALL, now that was a shmup
>>7584248 (Dead)What did this post say? I can't see it because of faggot jannies.
>>7585797Let's just say it may have contained a falsehood or two.
>>7585275>>7585779t. Deathsmiles/CAVE fans
>>7585860>>7585257nice grave digging there
>>7584191I 1-all'd the Famicom version in 3d but thag probably doesn't count The power up system angers me
>>7584404What's with spanish cheaters btw edusword, ricardo (and baron rojo?) ?>>7584235chaining and hardware slow down was a mistake.
>>7586291Ok but can you tell us random mame facts? What's your autofire setup like? Thoughts on jrpgs?
>>7586035console versions are fine; the PCE version of Detana Twinbee is top-notch. Not to mention the console exclusive Pop'n.Sometimes I feel the same way about the power-up system, ha. Deep in the game after a death you kind of shoot a lot of bells and hope for the best.
Bosses that filtered you?
>>7586342Are the unicorn bros beatable in bof3? >>7584191Twinkle star sprites sucks
Going into it, I thought I could maybe 1cc this game eventually if I'd practiced enough but then I reached stage 4 and those hopes were thoroughly dashed. Way too much for my head to keep with. Gonna shelf this one for now.
>>7586304are you seriously asking me to explain this noob shit to you?ugh, finein mame 0.198 they added special effects to 1945K III (inspired by the strikers series which I 2-alled in a week btw, I'm a fast learner if you didn't know)it's a really cool game where you memorize safe spots, way harder than stupid cave games where you can just dodge everything blindhere's a video which I can neither confirm nor deny the source of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-R5lkN3PGYneedless to say it was a piece of cake to clear, after all I have 7000 hours of experience playing shmups, not to mention my time playing fighting games which helped train my reaction skills.I used 15 hz autofire most of the time but for the 3rd boss you need to point blank using 30 hz or else you obviously won't kill him before his hardest pattern.jarpigs? don't make me laugh.
Which Western World Record are you training for, fellow shmuppers?
>>7586359stage 4 is a huge difficulty spike but you can do it. just takes a few hours of grinding
>>7586421That isn't something to be proud of, that's called addiction and it's a character flaw. Want to feel actual achievement? Open a business, get married and have a child.
>>7586328welp, that penguin is getting cancelled
>>7586454Wanna know why your achievement is useless, if you run the mame command line -speed 0.25 and use savestates anyone can beat the world record.Congratulations. You feel a dopamine rush for 15 minutes then face the depressing reality of your life.
i dont get the appeal of loops. especially games like gradius 5 where theres like 250 loops or whatever -- who is actually sitting there playing for that long? do they leave the console paused?
>>7586454somebody should sell a dakimakura with vic viper on it
>>7586421>reading mame release notes and screenshotting the farmI did my 20 mins of shmup gaming this week, time to screenshot farm posts and re-read mame updates. I wonder what KZ is up to in M&B? >discuss shmup on discordRight. Gonna study some games I'll never play so I can talk about them and fit in with the actual players. Did you know hypers last for 1 second in DOJ?
>>7586489>>7586454>>7586360My sides lol
>>7586478No one associates staying locked in a bedroom playing videogames 12 hours a day with manliness. Only trannies need to run away from reality like that.Only newfags fall for that fake tough macho persona.
>when you realise you will never be japanese
>>7586489I just meant the invincibility frames, that's why you would use a hyper, for survival purposes, and it's not 1 second it's whatever I say it is due to time dilation. btw cave sucks and I don't like it so who cares. just a bunch of trannies an d söyboys with manicures who wish they were japanese.>>7586513no I don't think you understand. reread what I wrote more closely and you'll get it.
>>7586441Not so fast. Every girl I've met is turned off by shmup discussion and they tell me ranting about Jarpigs "doesn't count as foreplay". Damn shepigs aren't worthy of me.
>>7586527They aren't impressed when you say you 2ALL all Strikers games either? Wow
>>7586534Strikers 2all is 11 minutes long which is roughly how long you can keep your boomer dick hard before going limp
>>7586518You're mentally ill, if you want to brag about being manliness go lift weights or something. No one associates children's toys with masculinity.
Does anyone here have love for Hellsinker? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dng4rCV0FIoI was super into Hellsinker back in 2009-2010, when I was at my rock bottom in life. I was really, really good at shmups back then and could 1CC most casual shumps after my first attempt or two. Hellsinker really drew me in. It's something else. I played it for a couple months.The aesthetics are just so unbelievably weird. Everything is absolutely alien, dysphoric, and weirdly "womb-like." There is an absolutely excessive amount of status bars and gauges, and even the gameplay is somewhat unconventional.
>>7586598Sounds like you 2-alled the whole Striker trilogy back in the day
>>7586598Gotta post an even better Hellsinker video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFlGjFPatSkIt is literally impossible to watch this and not get pumped up.BTW, you may wonder how many of those status bars are actually relevant. The answer is a surprising amount of them!
>>7586598I tried it once but the mechanics looked too complicated so I didn't go further in. Some people seem to really like it though
>>7586245>What's with spanish cheaters btw edusword, ricardo (and baron rojo?) ?good question we should think about
>>7586610It has compelling gameplay and surprisingly high production values, but EVERYTHING about the game is "strange," for lack of a better word. Definitely worth a try, though.It's like a really good shmup designed by someone who has never played a shmup before. It's an interesting take.
>>7586328Has anyone ever bothered to translate this into English?(Original can be found here: https://archive.org/details/TwinBeeParadise95)
Spent 400$ on my arcade stick. Ready to go for my first 1cc bros!
>>7586750post your scores>>7586764post your scores
>>7586782>post scoresNo need. You tell good players by how they talk about shmups. I'm more of a survival player anyway. So this leads us to auto-fire, what hz do you use? Do you even understand optimal setups? Heh, doubtful let me explain since you asked. The optimal fire rate, described as the fastest consistent stream of bullets shot from the bottom of the screen, changes depending on your power level, as you have different bullet numbers on screenThis gets more complicated in other games like KKK Tiger;Helpful buttons include: optimal rate for recovery, low power red; optimal rate for low power blue, and optimal rate for max power blueShit like this actually makes a differenceThis may get more complicated in horis where you tend to not hang around the leftmost part of the screen, but rather around the middle-left areaI do believe people would have an easier time with these games if they made use of thisForgot to add: Daioh's default turbo button isn't even 30hz, so you're losing a lot of point-blanking potential. They give you an awkward in-between, not an optimal rate, nor the fastest rate. This happens a lot in games with included auto and it blows
>>7586796>play for funyou're playing the wrong genre
>>7586628am i supposed to understand the mechanics to play it? cuz i could never figure out what the fuck was going on
>shmup is thirty minutes long>"But dude, you have to replay it 500 times before it gets good!
>>7587109Nope, a good shmup is fun from the get go. Anyway the following is 100% true :>pig is boring asf 5 hours in>"w-wait till you reach the 25 hours mark, i-i swear"
>>7587220Tell that to your non-fren (Not EVER) Ric the tardo
>>7586357>Are the unicorn bros beatable in bof3?first time nosecond time yes
>>7587317Based jarpong knowledge.
>>7586598Have you watched this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxel8y_mmLo
>>7584191>why you haven't 1ALL'd a Twinbee game yetBecause I dislike the power up system
>>7587109>shmup is 30 mins long >but dude, trust me, it ''gets fun'' if you are near WR score
>>7587459>know the difference>bottom guy fucks dogs, top guy doesn'tOk.
Twinbee series is the best. Is there something like a spiritual successor? Didnt find any other shmup to be nearly as appealing yet.
>>7587459I was told Gus didn't post here.
What is the point of magic in Dimahoo? As far as I can tell it doesn't do much to enemies, and every time I try to charge it I get distracted and get hit by something and die.
>>7584191I can't get past the water stage in pop'n twinbee
anyone know how I could rotate xenia to play in tate mode?
>>7587860In the first stage focus on getting the three way spread, a shield, and your little option helpers. Afterwards the only bell you'll need to worry about is replenishing your shield when it disappears. The spread is good for all the enemies crowding the screen while the charge can be used effectively on bosses or large enemies.I can't remember if you can have shot and ground bomb on the same button but I recommend it if you can. I never saw a use for the punch attack; it got me killed more often than not.
>>7588072And another thing; that bomb where you flood the screen with little twinbees saved my ass many times so don't be afraid to use that. U can dew it anon
>>7588054Why not using mame for this game? 360 port is suboptimal
>>7587828Magic power ups give you very useful option fireIf you dont care about score, only use the charge attacks for polarity based ennemiesOtherwise just use your shot and destroy everything withBombspam the boss while making sure you're the right polarityDimahoo is on the easy side for survival playIt's hardcore if you score though
>>7584616>Shmup farmThat's the point at which you fucked up
>>7584616try Touhou 6 - Embodiment of Scarlet DevilIt's an excellent game
>>7587478Better to fuck dogs than be an ostrich amirite lads?
>>7587828what's the point of anything man
Ahhh yes, I've taken my pills and now I can finally enjoy a good shoot them up... maybe I'll even stream on twitcher...

>>7587495I don't know what happened to bomb em ups, there used to be lots and now there are none
>>7589190what did he say the best one was im not watching 20 minutes
>>7589210To find out the whole story sub to my patreon my dude ha
>>7589190How will groovymamers ever recover? The farm is probably loosing its shit right now.
>>7589210Retroarch with run-ahead can get you 1 frame of lag in every shmup FBNeo supports. He doesn't give the way to test it, but you can advance the game one frame at a time by pressing k while the game is paused (press p). Basically, what you'd want to do is hold down the shot button on your controller, advance the game frame by frame, until you see your sprite shoot. Then eliminate the frames (increase run-ahead by 1 each time) until you only have to advance one frame to see your sprite shoot. Other than that, standard MAME with low-latency mode on and v-sync off is as good/better than other options like ShmupMAME or GroovyMAME.
>>7587478>top guy doesn'the could if he wanted to
>>7589390>>7589190>>7588881J-just s-stop watching video game "content" people on YT altogether. S-spare the c-cringe and waste of time!!!!!!
>tardo never plays shmups>he merely hangs around shmup spaces to be with his e friendsummmm? P O S E R
>>7586517Why did you slap a frog over that meme?
For me, it's Sam.
>>7590924Ungrateful secondary jorpog
>>7589390I don't understand the retroarch hate. I know most scream about it's user interface but you get used to it pretty quick. I personally think the input lag shit is a meme. Yeah, too much is a bad thing but when people are worrying about a couple milliseconds difference between arcade stick PCBs you're just playing around in Autisticland.
>>7591629Most of it is people making excuses. Obviously you don't want really laggy games but people will cling to any type of reason for not playing a game and not practicing.>but muh 5 frames is why I can't 1cc or even stage practicecors bruv
The DOJBL WR has been done on a fucking outdated alien version of mame. Input lag is a meme.
I ordered a japanese saturn fuckin five minutes ago off jp yahoo and it's already here. Gimme recs for the platform, I got discs to burn
I think I will do my next 1cc on a PC emulating another PC emulating a console emulating an arcade game.
>>7591736Good stuff to try are Shienryu, Layer Section, Soukyugurentai, and (not shmup) Elevator Action and Bulk SlashSoukyugurentai has two releases, if you have a JPN Saturn it shouldn't matter which version but the revision (called Soukyugurentai Otokuyo) has some bug fixes.
Why is there no goddamn R-Type final 2 PC demo? What the fuck is wrong with these devs. Then, why the fuck would you only release it in one region? I guess the new motto of game devs is "we fucking hate you and your money!"Now I have to try and create a Japanese nintendo account just to download and try the fucking demo on a fucking switch with more inherent lag than any other current platform.Fuck me.
>>7592669>with more inherent lag>>7591724
>>7591736Thunder Force VRadiant SilvergunOf course, dettana twinbee
>>7592986See >>7591681My issue is that it's like driving a 3 cylinder when you have a Corvette sitting in the garage. You would rather play on something more responsive than less. Doesn't mean you can't, just that if you have the option why wouldn't you go with the more responsive.
>>7584191i'm almost done with 1cc'ing darius force, great game.
>>7588750holy mother of god that is based
>>7592669Looks like there will be a cross platform leaderboard for R Type Final 2. Is that good or bad? Assuming scoring will even be good. I wonder how long a loop will take? I don't like this trend towards longer loops.
stop playing dodonpachi and play dodongetsomebitches
>>7593453I wonder how the "universal difficulty" will work. I love R-Type but I'm scared to death that they are going to fuck up this game.

how good is R-Type Final? new one coming next month
>softdrink crying about being called "baseddrink"
BROS, I finally found a Sanwa arcade stick at my thrift. How do I go about learning to use it? This thing feels extremely unwieldy. I think wine grip feels the best for me...? What else should I know?
>>7594449Also, every direction feels pretty natural (I watched the grip video Mark made), except for going up, especially up + right. Am I doing something wrong?

>>7586342Pic not related
I got the raiden fighters collection, this shit is way too easy
>>7594456You just have to use it and get the feel for it. I wouldn't worry about grip too much. You will kind of naturally find what works and feels good to you. The size of your hand will determine a lot. It will take some time to adjust if you have always used controllers/keyboards. I still don't know if there is anything superior to it but it sure is a lot more fun.>>7594104It's generally pretty good IMHO. The usual gripe is that the pace is way too slow. I'm hoping F2 will fix the few shortcomings it had.
>>7594795>chav still seething about the best in the westChavbros...

>>7594104if anybody else is wondering, there was some crowdfunding involved with this game: https://rtypefinal2.com/crowdfunding/third/i was wondering who the hell publishes a shmup in 2021 but that makes a little more sense. also the thing on this site the star background does when you scroll down is hilarious
What's your favorite free shmup?
>>7598010the ones on mame
>>7598010Unironically like Blue Wish Ressurection and Eden's Aegis more than ESPrade.
>>7596558when you make a perfect game, why would you want to change?
Cave ruined shmups by making them *appear* inaccessible to gamers and bankrupted the whole genre.
for me it's shmup players that don't lie about their past achievements
>>7598339>sealOk, now this is epic!
>>7584191anyone know why the fuck I can't get past the menu screen in R-Type Delta? Tried mednafen and epsxe- I can press the start button to get past the title screen, but after that, none of my controls do anything.Seems like kind of an obscure issue, thanks to anyone who can help. I'm on linux if it matters
>>7598930I'm using epsxe v2.05 on windows and it's working fine my man. Probably a Linux fuck up. Obviously check your control settings but I don't know what to tell you beyond that.

Are there any good shmup rom hacks?
>>7584616Maybe you need a break from shmups. I took a couple years off because they lost their excitement. One issue I Still have is most don't do offense right and reduce to dodge em ups, where your main focus is dodging, and holding autofire at the bottom of the screen takes care of most threats. And that doesn't feel satisfying or exciting.Ketsui is an exception. Ketsui scoring forces distance management so much it rewards offensive play.

So you can have something like:<view name="Normal_2"> <screen index="0"> <bounds x="593" y="50" width="735" height="980" /> </screen> <backdrop element="screen_bezel"> <bounds x="555" y="0" width="810" height="1080" /> </backdrop> <bezel element="Artwork_1"> <bounds x="0" y="0" width="1920" height="1080" /> </bezel> </view>But make sure you add the element (in this case screen bezel) before the view in the script. That way when you hit tab and hit the Video options you will see "Normal_1" and "Normal_2" as options for views. These names are arbitrary and you can name them whatever you want as long as there constantly named in the script.
>>7605214You could delete the feathered corners in Photoshop. Or better yet save teh feathered corners as a separate png and add them as an toggleable option in the default.lay

how would someone suspected of shmup cheating or lying redeem themselves? Seems like once their reputation is tainted they get treated unfairly and ungratefully. I'm not tardo by the way.
>>7605671tardo doesn't get treated poorly by the westie scene for that. look at sikraiken, people know he cheated and lied, and now they just pretend that never happened. in fact, they don't care about this type of integrity.tardo gets that treatment because of how his influence makes (((them))) feel threatened
>>7605671suck some gang dick and be a good boy, never question jarpig supremacy, and you'll be forgiven
>>7605671obviously by leaving and coming back to the community with a new identity and shtick.>he doxed himself on shmupgoh no no no no lmfao
>>7605617ignore facebookjak posters. Then are 40% of the time A.I. Bots, 40% of the time Glow in the Dark Operatives, or 20% of the time Useful idiots from /tv/.
>>7605671Complete and show proof of whatever was suspected. He would have to show direct screen capture, audible game audio, and at least one of the following: -Input display program -Hand cam -Audible button presses
>>7605689this, the "tardo lies" narrative is pure pig propaganda and a red herring. noone says anything about bs claims by other important members (i.e. elixir on shienryu) these guys are just desperate to try to make people dislike ric just so he's banned from everywhere and they don't have to deal with his effective anti-pig pressence.
>>7605671>>7605702>tardowhat is the lore on this guy? I honestly don't know, pls call me a newfag but Its come up often enough for me to ask. Does it have to do with /tv/? because this seems like a /tv/ meme.
>>7605712this doesn't do anything. it just means the player can do that now, but he may have still lied about his past achievement
>>7605719he's the schizo who has been posting "jarpig" nonstop for years, has the highest post count on guscord by far but no scores in any shmup. he lied about his strikers 2-alls, and deleted all of his replays when he was accused of cheating. he hates posers but is the biggest poser in the scene at the moment.>>7605689>>7605692>>7605714t. tardo
Unsure how I feel about chaining in this game. At first it feels neat but once you learn it's more or less necessary for a clear it's less cool. It's starting to feel like a similar game to Ikaruga, improved in a lot of ways but with some of the same issues.
>>7605734>posting jarpig nonstop>highest post count on guscordI don't know what your talking about>lied about a 2alland that's no good!
>I don't know what your talking about

>challenges and achievements>replays and score proofThis thread is what's wrong with shmups. Video games are all about fun immersion not trial and error masochism to brag about. The character you play as represents you in real life, and most people refer to video game characters in the first person as themselves as theyre playing, i.e. when you play CT you are Crono, so when that in-game avatar wins you win in that world, no need to compare scores or show replays, we play for the fun immersion of a game. You all play for external reasons, what does that say about you?
>>7609379>playing video games for funholy CRINGE

>>7610565Might want to make a replay for such an achievement
>>7610310>their good jobs and lives!Debatable.
>>7610565Congrats. What route?
>>7610565Nice, I also just no missed Darius twin, got a pretty darn good score too. In fact I've cleared the whole Darius series blind at this point. No I won't elaborate or post a replay with hand cam and real time commentary. No I will not dox myself on shmupg either, sorry.
I enjoy dunking on gaymers as much as the next guy, but jesus christ ricky this is just cope.

>>7612101If it is for fun.
>>7611657>It's much more impressive to push a single gamepriceless coming from the guy who thinks serious shmup play means setting up autofire buttons and spamming discord about it before dadhopping.
friendly reminder to PLAY ZERO RANGERIT IS A GOOD GAME
>>7612559top 10 shmup of all time imo
>>7612559>>7612568The games that influenced it are 10x better.
>>7612568>>7612559Very derivative. What >>7612575 said.
ZR is still a good game and worth playing if you want a fun, stylish well-made shmup
>>7612559I plan on playing it but I'd much rather play ESP.Ra.De., Mushihimesama or Perfect Cherry Blossom while waiting for it to go on sale.
>>7612559>has 100.000 times the computing resources available of the games it copies>looks worse than some NES games
>>7612670>while waiting for it to go on saleI dont think it goes on sale often and when it does the discount is negligible. You're probably not going to get it for much cheaper than it is normally. You could also be a dick and pirate it>>7612583Yeah I mean, I don't know why you would try to phrase that in a negative tone. Its an homage to those other games, down to the enemies and bosses you fight, and there's even a weird dream segment that's super similar to the first level of a certain game, including make your fighter behave totally differently to match.
>>7612696>looks worse than some NES gamesYou've got to have brain damage. The game has a specific art style and it executes it perfectly.
>>7612701>>while waiting for it to go on saleNever mind I see its been 25% off before.
>>7612732That lazy "I can't into pixel art so I make it kinda like what I think retro graphics should be" style that indie devs love so much.
>>7612828By style I meant the two tone colors, but whatever man. Its fine if you don't like that kind of look. Pixel art isn't the easiest to do imo, its far easier to just do art like crimzon clover
>>7612840Yeah right. At least that doesn't look like my 4 yo experimented with MSPaint. Unreal amounts of cope.
music > visuals > gameplay
>>7613041Gameplay above everything
>>7612732it looks exactly like judgement silversword. it's alright but just when you compare it games like dimahoo, ddp or whatever arcade games from 25 years ago it's kinda sad. stop shilling.

>>7613662Don't kill everything, don't power up too fast. It goes against everything you want to instinctively do, but it's the only way to keep some of those games manageable in later loops. Unless you're some Japanese wizard of course.

how can anybody play this boring shit? no joke, no bait, these games are all carbon copies of each other. Why even play more than one shmup?
>>7615063your question implies playing 1 shmup is somehow okay? it's not, that means you're a tryhard
>>7615063It only looks like that to you because you suck at the genre.
>>7615096I've never even played one because of how boring they look.

I've been wanting to play it but don't want to support shit like this.
>>7615239i think junkie is lowkey better than mark at shmups (or was) but is taking it easy now and just having fun (overcame 'tism)
>>7615063you can make the same post with every genrebut it's correct, there's no point in playing anything else than touhou
>>7615294What exactly do you base that on? Or are you just shitting out the wrong end again?
>>7614530Not really that hard compared to more traditional art.
>>7615239>Mark should have ate his ass on the shitty port issue instead of cucking.Don't expect Mark to do this, he seeks the pig audience (because it's potentially more people) so he has to compromise. Issue is, Junkie is better at attracting them directly, as Mark is also trying to attract the players a bit, but the middleground isn't working too well; noone is pleased.
>>7615063>>7615101lel call me back after you've played a shmup bro>>7615140pretending to be retarded is not very good bait, up your game bro.
>>7615528Okay, I'll try two. Will let you know my in depth comparisons and contrasts later.
>>7615528>responding to the same troll that has been posting this shit for months
>>7615575post your replays if you're so damn smart then
>>7615509Mark is only an emerging e-celeb because he gave a shit about actually playing shmups competitively. I hope he doesn't cuck trying to chase them views. I understand everyone dreams of making it as an e-celeb but he is better off keeping the community small and attracting whomever he can with more hardcore shmup content.I don't get this desire by the community to grow it into some massive fandom. What's the point if you have to water everything down? There isn't anything wrong with being a niche community. Fact is, real shmup play isn't going to attract big numbers. It's a very autistic like hobby that will only appeal to certain people. Feeding the sick grabbers in some wierd hope that we will get more games only gets you shit like the Psykio Collection.If you want to make it as a streamer or YouTube personality, this isn't the hobby for it.
>>7615718>I hopeyou're extremely late, people like tardo have been warning others about this for over a year now>I don't get this desire by the community to grow it into some massive fandom. What's the point if you have to water everything down?careful with that hate speech or seal gang will hunt you down
>>7615509>>7615718>>7615239do you even play shmups
>>7615575Those were the first posts I have ever made in this thread or threads like this.
>>7615718who cares? you don't need a community to play single player games remember
Sup my dudes ha. Have you watched my latest video? Be a good homie and join my patreon.
>>7615718>I don't get this desire by the community to grow it into some massive fandom. What's the point?When people like Mark start making fwiends with Shmup developers they realize that the market is too small to be really successful. So growing the community is essentially marketing. Moreover if you want to preserve something, just as when you need to repaint a fence to save it from rot. At its current state its unsustainable in the long term unless you attract new players. "Growing" the fan-base might not be the only solution but its the easiest one compared to the less predictable model of trying to attract a small niche of core players who are willing to pay a premium.
>>7615840But people hate these games, exposure doesn't work
>>7615840This is framed from a monetary standpoint. I understand why developers and ecelebs would look at it this way but I don't understand why an average member of the community would. If you enjoy something, it serves no purpose to change it into something else just to try to ensure you can keep enjoying it. What you enjoyed is not there anymore.
>tardo spamming /vr/ instead of ultramaniaoh boy
>>7615887What the hell is ultramania?
>>7615239>Mark should have ate his ass on the shitty port issue instead of cucking.QRD?
>>7615840Reminds me of the garbage that is the online chess world and how streamers began playing with retard LoL players to "grow the game" i.e. rake in millions for themselves.
>>7615840Why the hell did I delete that part of the sentence? >Moreover if you want to preserve something, just as when you need to repaint a fence to save it from rot...,you need resources.
>>7615884If you want to preserve a building, you need resources to invest in restoration. Even if you cut the developers out of the equation you still need a way to continue to invest in what you want to preserve. Likewise you will eventually need new blood to continue the legacy of preserving that thing. That is unless your just some nihilist who doesn't care about what happens to shmups after your dead.
>>7615917>1500 year old gameChess is not going to change, its anti-fragile. Shmups on the other hand are practically dead already.
>>7615934It's better to accept it's becoming an irrelevant genre that few care about and just enjoy what's left of it, focusing on the good people and not endlessly chase Zelda fags only to accomplish nothing (it's never worked) but wasting time.
>>7615945So let it die. That's fine I guess, nothing last forever. But its not a zero sum game. The genre was huge in the 90's, their is no real valid reason why it shouldn't still be more popular today. That doesn't mean you have to devalue the base in order to chase vapid Zoom Zooms. But their need to be something done if you want to bring in young blood enthusiast.
>basedpaster says crystal core isn't doable without reduce>ricky posts videos of himself cheesing 1-1 boss and playing with bubbles as proof basedpaster is wrongwhat the FUCK did he mean by this?
>>7615992They were only big due to a lack of genre competition. Now people prefer other games (and media). It's a lost cause.
>>7615934Your analogy isn't quite right. If I wish to preserve a historic landmark, I don't accomplish that by rebuilding it as something else. I invest whatever resources I have into preserving it, not changing it. The agenda is what is important. Do I want to preserve this so it can live on in whatever manner it can or do I want to profit from it? The hobby is being changed by those who wish to profit from it.
>>7616007dunno, ask him?>>7616020>The hobby is being changed by those who wish to profit from it.very well expressed
>>7616020>>7616020I'm not saying change it. I am saying that something must be done. But even if you rebuild it as it once was, its still "changed" as the old material is replaced with the new. None the less it has a cost. No matter how you solve the problem of entropy it still needs to be solved. If there is no one financing that restoration then it doesn't get done. That takes investment (not just financial, but people actually interested). One way to solve that problem is the thing your protesting. That doesn't make it the ideal solution but its a solution none the less. Moreover it doesn't mean it has to be this slippery slope, all or nothing thing that you make it out to be.
>>7616024>>The hobby is being changed by those who wish to profit from it.>very well expressedImplying the hobby wasn't created by people who wished to profit from it? LOL
>>7616042The results of this have been a western community filled to the brim with secondaries and players needing to engage in private. People like Mark care more about secondaries that may watch his videos than actually increasing the playerbase. He never watches people stream, for starters.
>>7616042>Moreover it doesn't mean it has to be this slippery slope, all or nothing thing that you make it out to beCenturies of human history says that it does.

Who the fuck cares if the genre is dying? There's literally thousands of shooters to play.
>>7616113Chess isn't being steered by poseur consumers who just want to buy pretty chess sets to put on a shelf.
>>7616198Right, but the issue still remains regarding preservation. It doesn't need to be necessarily defer to by vapid consumers, but the problem needs to be addressed if you don't want the genre to die. Ether admit you want Shmups to die, or come up with a better alternative to solve for x. I never said, catering to casuals was the only solution or a good one, but it does solve for x.
>>7616174who's gonna watch, like, and subscribe to my shmup youtubes & twitch if the community is dead? Ever think of that, genius?! I'm out here busting ass trying to show off these games but nobody is watching!
>>7616229haha good one
>>7616162yeah that made no sense, not sure what he proved by beating the first boss lol
>>7616229>how am I going to be a e-celebrityYou make a good point, lets assume for a moment for the sake of argument you don't care about financial gain at all, but a part of competitive scoring is having a scene to compete with. So if there is none one to appreciate your hard work, then why do it?
>>7615904>ultramania?look up twitch tv/gusyphus2/and join his discord, otherwise you won't get 50% of the shmup jokes in these threads
>>7616256>So if there is none one to appreciate your hard work, then why do it?baseline I do it for fun and my OCD always ends up scoring games I like, community is just bonus, bonus motivation, bonus fun and bants and bonus competition like you said, the cherry on my ice cream cake made of autism and OCD dot dodging
>>7616229I don't care about that shit, why can't you just enjoy the games?
>>7616214It doesn't necessarily solve for X. It is more likely to accelerate the decline by discouraging and running off the small number of players who genuinely enjoyed the genre, because of what the genre is, by changing it to something that no longer interests them. The new consumers are more fickle, people attracted to new shiny things, and would likely leave again as something new comes along leaving you with less than had you not tried to appease them. I think the premise you are using, that the genre will die if we don't do something, may not be necessarily true.I don't think the genre will ever be what it was in terms of popularity. I don't know what the answer is. I just don't see this idea of catering to consumers ending well.
>>7616320Holly shit dude, way to miss the point. If you want to preserve something on into the future then you need resources dude to entropy, simple as. Resource are not merely financial, they can also be human capital, people passionate about its preservation. People grow old and die, so you need a new generation to carry on the legacy. Is not an ether or, its merely one potential way. Pic related is (You), likely saw the "Degredation of a fanbase.png" image macro and shut your brain off. >I think the premise you are using, that the genre will die if we don't do something, may not be necessarily true.the second law of thermodynamics bro. >I just don't see this idea of catering to consumers ending wellFirst, I don't think anyone is positing a solution remotely close to the hyperbolic straw-man you make it out to be. Second, I am not saying its a great solution. But due to the nature of entropy there need to be a solution if preservation is your goal. I would be perfectly happy with you admitting you want the genre to die. After all such is life, all things come to an end.
>>7616368When 99% of people talk about preservation, what they really mean is they want it to be easily accessible while they're still alive. They could not give a fuck about what happens after they're dead.
>>7616390Anon not everyone is a vapid nihilist like yourself. Some people care about the transcendent.
>>7616401Some but not most.
>>7616409Ok but too those some who care, what solution do you offer?
>>7616416shouldn't they be the ones to figure that out?
>>7616368Sorry, I'm having trouble engaging with your personality.The only point I was trying to make was that you can get new players without changing the genre. The idea I dont agrea with is that shmups MUST NEEDS to become speed running or fighting game levels of popularity to survive. Your entropy shit is just word salad.I'm not against any change. But if the genre changes, it needs to be driven by actual players and not by grabbers and e-celeb profiteers.
>>7616419>its not my problemSo then why are you worried about entryism? Because can't you just play your old games on MAME? Noting will change with have you already have. Just take care of yourself and don't worry about what other people do. After all your just a tactical nihilist, otherwise why would you care about what other people do? It seems to me you on some level do care about preservation as far as it comes to what makes (You) comfy. So being that you do want to preserve something, then how do you plan on doing that? Am I wrong to suggest your protest is actually only logical if you care about the (((Community)))? Come on man think a little.
>>7616432>So then why are you worried about entryism?I'm not I just butted into the convo here >>7616390lol :)
>>7616430>The only point I was trying to make was that you can get new players without changing the genre. Ok, fair point and I don't disagree with this. And funny enough I don't even think people are suggesting this. >shmups MUST NEEDS to become speed running or fighting game levels of popularity to survive.Don't you think your being hyperbolic when you suggest that is what people are advocating? That isn't even what I'm arguing here. >I'm not against any change. But if the genre changes, it needs to be driven by actual players and not by grabbers and e-celeb profiteers.I agree, but that said, if you want it to be antifragile there needs to be a solution to entropy. This is true of all things. Btw, sorry if my last post was a bit harsh. It's just I didn't see this response until after I posted it.
All this meta community shit is getting so tiresome. I just started this thread to get people to spam twinbee pictures and here we are. Some community members are so concerned about wot others ply and not about what they actually enjoy

>>7616447Nah, I get it man. I'm just trying to get my thoughts on the matter out there.>>7616447>Don't you think your being hyperbolic when you suggest that is what people are advocating?Perhaps but these words have come out of the mouth of several in the community and Mark himself has made it clear that he wants to see that.I understand I'm not the most articulate.
>>7616505I've listened to the guys podcast, I don't think what he suggest its nearly unreasonable as you are making it out to be. I respect your concerns and agree that entryism can be a huge problem. I am merely pointing out that the problem is not nearly as black and white as some frame it. >>7616483sorry famalamadingdong
>>7616483>All this meta community shit is getting so tiresomeWe will literally do ANYTHING to avoid actually playing or talking about the games themselves. Anything.
>>7616262I will never use discord.
i'm too autistic to function in the real worldshmups are not fun enough to distract from the depression anymore someone kill me
Autoscrolling was a mistake and the reason shmups will never be successful
>>7617924>t. speedrunnerYou will never be a woman
>>7616368>we must stop entropy at the retro gaming levelLol
>>7618014don't act special, plenty of shmup players want to cut off their balls
can I ask how you guys copy replays? I hear it's a meme but is it true and how do you do it? Do you copy every movement you see? Like watch a replay for 10 seconds, copy those movements over and over, watch another 10 seconds, copy and repeat??
>>7618141Depends on the game, really. DDP, for example, has strict routing, so I usually watch replays so as to not drop my chain. Something like Touhou, on the other hand, I never need to watch an entire replay--the only time I'll watch something is if I'm stuck on a spellcard and need help with it.
>>7616502nah, I don't need to coomlect twinbee pics, I just like the seriesboggles my mind though how much of a metric shitload of pastel porn is out there. It must have been a lot of japs' "first anime crush" or something
>>7618141>Like watch a replay for 10 seconds, copy those movements over and over, watch another 10 seconds,Pretty much. Break down each stage into sections you can memorize and watch a replay at 1.5x speed several times, until you can close your eyes and see the enemy spawns and route. Then sit down and try to replicate it.
secret to getting good is to stay at the top of the screen and point blank everything before it appears
>>7618219>series character designer uploaded all his art to pixivundeniably based
>>7612696>>7612828It was also made by like 2 people, compared to a professional studio that made high grade pixel art for a living. You expect just anyone to be the next Irem or something.
>>7618896jaimersbased in the West
Explain this shit. 70 hours 2ALL DDP and another 170 Hours for 587 million pts ??
>>7618972He's a superplaya
>>7618972Imagine using that time for being productive.
>>7618075>boatslutsWow, this is already a decade old.
>>7618972rinsed the genre and went back to rpgs, many such cases
>>7618169you shouldn't watch 2poo replays because you shouldn't play 2poo in the first place
>Mushihime-sama Futari will never get ported to pcIt hurts. I still have my copy from 10 years ago but microsoft is too retarded for full backwards compatibility on new consoles.
>>7619029Stop this stalker kiwifarms shit it's incredibly creepy
>>7619364Yeah, it seems like developers are determined to only support the consoles with the most sick-grabbers. I understand they want all the Metal-Fros buying up there games to put on there shelf's but there isn't any excuses for not releasing to PC. (M2)Devs cry about people not buying there games but then they go and release to only one console and may even region lock them. Region locking should have died a decade ago. In all fairness this seems to be getting better though.
>>7619826cool story, what do you play?
>>7619997Strikers games. It occurs to me that I 2-alled the whole trilogy.
>>7620579cool, got any replays?
>>7620732I deleted them.
>>7610697Yep I just recorded one, a few hits though but I'll do it again>>7610867Thanks anon, ACDFIKL>>7611140I love the music, it really does have a MMX feel. The boss scene 7 remix is fantastic too. It's ok anon I'll dox you somehow, and I'm almost at that level but I still need to clear Darius Gaiden. Is the collection on Switch any good for playing these games?
>>7620579Pretty cringe chav.
Strikers games must be popular, maybe more than Cave?? you guys talk about them a lot.
>>7620924yeah strikers is where it's at fuck cave.
>2all no miss SNES Shmups>why yes I do play on zsnes with save states and record my game inputs how could you tell?
Does anyone still do INPs?
>>7621462No, INPs desync. So you'll have to trust me for those achievements
Reminder. You will NEVER be as good as Jaimers. :)
>>7622276Has jaimers even kissed a girl on the lips? Doubtful
I waetched a Strikers 2All replay and it look like nightmare pain to route. Fuck Psikyo route not give the player some freedom and room for artistic expression
>>7622339Lol it's jaimers?
>>7622339Jaimers could fly if he wanted to!
>>7622343Funny, I've 2-alled the whole series.
I like Raizing games, especially Battle Bakraid and Battle Garegga. Too bad I suck so hard at them.
I'm playing deathsmiles and my xbox360 emulator is xenia, but I always get framedrops down to 30fps when there's a lot on the screen. Is there a better emulator or is it something else that's causing it?
>>7618896Dang, even Jaimers gets visibly frustrated when he loses an extend.
>>7622495That's just the current state of 360 emulation. I'd play the arcade version on MAME
>>7622495Here's the crack for the Steam version.https://archive.org/download/PC-GAMES-D/Deathsmiles-HI2U/
>>7622509You should've seen him at stunfest 2017, he was absolutely lividhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXBasP7HoVM
>>7622416fuck off ric
akagi always looking for a fight, bitch wouldn't last 10 seconds with me in the ring (full contact but no low blows/biting/eye gouging)
>>7623363post noodle arms
>>7620924most players that beat Strikers games don't stick with the series. they add it to their 1cc trophies and move on, which shows they don't like the games just want the bragging rights!
>>7623010nice shmpoop discussion here, literally shmupg tier
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mocagyhofSIWhere is he now?
>>7623532johnny5 killed him
>>7624145Less 'cord, more credits
>>7621104>>why yes I do play on zsnes with save states and record my game inputs how could you tell? ric planning to 2-ALL Gradius 3 SNES? I didn't know znes could make input files...
>want to criticize a shmup>realize the same criticism applies to almost all shmups
>>7624526What was the game and what was the criticism? Maybe it applies more to that shmup than others even if it applies to all to some extent.
>>7624545You only dodge bullets and that's it, they're all the same, just with different graphics.
>>7624591 yeah they're not for everyone, if you dont like dodging dots then they'll all seem the same no matter what little gimmicks and score tricks they use
>>7624513>znes could make input filesyes, if you record your run using in Znes and use save states it doesn't record the inputs prior to loading a save state so you can use it to tool assist. I don't know if there is a way to export the input files of the top of my head, but when you playback the recording in cuts out all the times you loaded a save and then that file can be exported to MP3 iirc. But its been a long time sense I've messed with it so some of the details might be wrong.
>>>7619000>players rinse shmups then disappear >many such casesVludi disappears for many monthscomes back streaming D&D elves a week agohttps://www.twitch.tv/vlud1
>>7624615so doubt all snes shmup clears, gottcha
>>7624718yep, I learned about it when doing a 8/v/ plays Super GnG thread several years ago. Everyone took turns playing one life and would upload a VOD for each segment and then sharing our savestate that we would make between deaths. On anon insisted on running using Znes and totally cheesed the game.
>>7624701not a pig game tho
>movie rerecording with savestatesUhh guys snes9x-rr, mednafen, emuhawk and bsnes does it too. Are you just learning about TAS videos for the first time?
>>7624825>>7624731>>7624615delete this, we have enough cheaters already
>>7624825Anon I'm not a speed runner. I don't typically use save states, nor do I care about creating TAS, or transitioning into a woman. .
>>7624840Why is everyone concerned about cheaters?If there is no video of you playing that shows your input and the screen in the same shot, it didn't happen.I think the meme goes something like >> tits or gtfo
>>7624989and audible button clicks.
>>7624989Noone will care anyway, whether it's legit or cheated. At best you'll get some empty praise by people that didn't check the replay
the only man of his race to play shmups
>>7625132what physiognomy is this??
>>7625108shitter cope. make replays and stop bitching.
>>7625150It's not cope for anything, just the truth
>>7625150Make replays so we can profile you and try to intimidate you by calling you out in our tranny discord.
>>7625165Even saying "no one will care" shows you don't get it. You're downplaying cheaters and demoralizing players from making replays by framing the issue around popularity. It's not about popularity or getting praise, we do it just to do it and show we did it.>it's trueIt's false that no one cares. It's false that no one will watch replays. It's also irrelevant how many viewers you get. Just do it.
>>7625227Just play for yourself, no need to record shit. Other players may pretend to watch but nope.
>>7625246My gaming goals are little projects, recording the results is useful and interesting to me. I like to look back and see my progress. plus these games don't get enough content might as well create it.
>>7625261You can upload and set it to private
>>7625261You're the cancer killing shoot em ups.
>>7625275> secret replaysSure Donpachi stays secret, others public, depends how I feel
>>7624591That’s just danmaku. In older games you have stuff like breakable walls, and even Guwange takes that approach.
>>7625227Based. For sure I'm gonna force my grandkids to watch my Strikers 2Alls.
>>7625286pigs:>Plasmo has hidden WR>he sides with themNICE JOB!>Tardo claims some no-scoring clears>is anti-pigsMUST WHINE ENDLESSLY FOR MONTHS
>>7625373Plasmon WR is believable. Tardo 2*allin 3 strikers games is hard to believe given how much difficulty he has with a daioh
>>7625440The replay was broadcasted at some stunfest event. Meanwhile no one ever watched any of the ric strikers stuff.
>>76254867000 hours of shmup practice looks like that?!
>>7625674It's funny given his jihad against secondaries, non players, posers, cheaters and what not. Lying is a form of cheating right?
>>7625703Even if he's a hypocrite, he's the hero we deserve
What are the best retro console only shmups? Vertical and horizontal are both welcome
>>7625809ps1 had a few i enjoyed gradius gaiden harmful park and r type delta
>>7625227I agree with and practice this myself. If someone wants to watch, fine. If not, that's fine too. I record for myself. I also stream practice so players can see what it's really like.
>>7625227>It's not about popularity or getting praise, we do it just to do it and show we did it (i.e. seek popularity and praise)
>>7625773get over it, he will NEVER be your fren
>>7625138I don't know but he's already done more than most of the posers in this thread.
>>7625278it's already dead
>>7598339based Cave saving and killing shmups at the same time
Deathsmiles was the last real "hit" CAVE made, financial success wise. Why the hell did they kill it with the atrocious art style of Deathsmiles 2? It was literally their last chance.
>>7626698>forgot about mahou otome
>>7626706Forgot about that gachashit.
>>7626715gachashit so popular cave has never returned to making arcade shmups almost noone plays
mfw Cave was always a jarpig secondary company. How long before they make a Deathsmiles mmorpg??
>>7626773cave had to adapt or die. so now they make pigshit. enjoy
what would be more fun to play long-term for high score? BatriderStrikers 1999Dragon BlazeProgearGareggaKetsui?????
>>7626827Just pick one at random. But it'd probably be better to score a more "unexplored" title like Strikers or Dragon Blaze, over Ketsui.
>>7626851>like Strikers or Dragon Blazeyep I was leaning towards those
>>762682744 loops of Raiden II.

>>7627567let's avoid doxxing topics and talk about shmups instead>>7627129some guy actually did this lol, took like 26 hours
>>7618939He actually posts his replays!!!
>>7627620>He actually posts his replays!!I 2-alled the Strikers trilogy (trust me)
what is the most aesthetic shmup and why is it ESP.ra.de?
>>7627815for me it's Gun Frontier.
>>7627841>Gun FrontierI mean the manga its based on is beautiful as fuck but do you really think the game sprites are really top tier?
>>7627931yes the ship is a gun with wings, doesn't get better than that. sprite work is awesome when you take in the big picture, the backgrounds, the set pieces, not cherry picking 1 thing here or there
>>7628028>the ship is a gun with wingsActually kind of based. This game does seem to have a nice aesthetic to it.
