Strider psx difficulty question

Postby andsuchisdeath » Wed Jan 23, 2013 10:11 pm

I'm going for the Strider 1CC on the Japanese Playstation port of the game that was bundled with Strider 2.

I'm paranoid that I'm not playing at the default arcade difficulty setting. The ports default difficulty setting is four stars out of eight.

Does Capcom have a difficulty setting standard as far as their home ports go? If anyone can help I'd appreciate it!

Good question. :/
There are quite a few 1CC videos out there. That's probably the best you can do (or check the dip switch settings on the PCB... I'm sure that's available on interwebs).

Yeah I don't know. I got the 1CC a few days ago on the psx port at default difficulty. It wasn't too much of a task. I suppose I should just try to clear the game in MAME now , and make note of any differences.

Its a pretty easy game, I remember it only took me like 2-3 hours of play to get a 1cc in mame.

Now go play Cannon Dancer ;)

Interesting tidbit: the original American printing of Strider 1 & 2 had the games on the wrong discs.

I believe that's the same w/ the J-version, too. It's been a while.

And yes, it's not a hard 1CC at all. There's a few tricks you need on the last stage. Canon Dancer is much more punishing, but if you memorize the few bits, and take Stage 4 (I think it is) slow, you can do it. Awesome game(s).

Yeah, I could have sworn that the Japanese Playstation copy of Strider 2 that I owned 10 years ago had the printing on the discs swapped, but the Japanese copy I own now has the correct printing on each disc.

I've played Cannon Dancer a few times. I've played the actual PCB once. It's on my list of games that I'd like to take some serious cracks at.
