What about Windjammers?
Violent Storm gets a vote from me.

Metal Slug sounds fun, but I'd rather do something I can sit down and play for 10-15 minutes.
might not work for Metal Slug, but could limit other games to score over single levels, race games over single tracks for best lap time/best overal, etc etc...
I'm sure everyone here is honest enough to not fib about what they achieve, so that could work.
Like GP, the time available is so variable each day it's not easy to throw down a mass of time unfortunately.

I second Cameltry. The question then is PCB or SFC. Personally, I'd go with PCB.
Posted: Sat Jan 17, 2009 5:43 am
Well, the PCB requires some tweaking due to the analog thingy. Maybe someone more versed w/ MAME could say whether it's doable or not.

In wolfmame 0.99, the analog settings match the SFC version (with a gamepad). Everything seems good to go, to me.

What about a belt action scroller? Night Slashers gets a vote from me.

A belt-scroller sounds alright. I would rather do a Capcom one first, but then you'd have to pick from the huge list of CPS titles.
Actually, I've got one: Knights of the Round, 1991, CPS1. A belt-scroller with style.

All right, I'm feeling competitiony. What's everyone in the mood for? I wouldn't mind one of the top-view shooting games (Senjo no Ookami) but something much less popular. I played Magical Crystals for a few minutes last night, and it seemed fun enough. Any other candidates in that genre?
I'll also never turn down a good side scrolling jump action game (Chiki Chiki Boys, Raguy, Ninja Kid come to mind).

SAR Search and Rescue
Battlefield (aka Time Soldiers)
These all get my vote for top down shizzaz.
GP you should probably be the one that settles on what game, I don't think anyone else has the balls to go OK THIS IS WHAT WERE GONNA PLAY.
Posted: Tue Jul 07, 2009 6:04 am
I'm up for all of those, but I can only play Battlefield properly (as it's the only PCB I have). Calibur 50 requires a special rotary stick, and I've got no SAR. Never tried them w/ button emulation. Something tells me I won't like them.
The idea behind the thread is to get maximum participation. It'd be nice to have 20 people participate, but I'd be happy with 5 competitive scores.
Looking up Magical Crystals at MAWS, and followign the category, I'd go for any of these:
Code: Select all
Gain Ground (painful)
Gunball <-- LONG
Toki no Senshi
Thunder Zone (although scoring like 500 points w/ a clear seems a bit boring)
Valyrie no Densetsu
Of those, I've got extensive experience w/ Alien Syndrome (got to the end of loop 2, and Crackdown (gotten to 2nd to las stage). Gain Ground is fucking hard, so doesn't matter what I've played. I have a Gunball super play DVD. It's almost an hour, so that would probably suck. Toki no Senshi is an oldie but a goodie. Never played FixEight... I'm sure it's hard as fuck.
If we went side scroller (which would mean I don't have to TATE my monitor, I'd be up for
Code: Select all
Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars
I suck at all of those.

My button config for rotary stick games on a standard stick is like this:
(1) (2) (3)
1 - decrease dial
2 - button 1
3 - increase dial
4 - button 2
It works pretty great for all rotary games but I can totally understand if people would hate it - I've never used a real rotary stick before so never experienced the true thing.
All those side scrollers you've listed would be great except for Cadash. While Cadash is a superb game, its horrible for a competition due to the 30 minutes of milking in the green slime area.
My special vote goes to Bay Route or 'Rectal' Horn......!?

Guess this is out for now.

Lets try for a comp again? Its been soooooooooo long since I competed in arcade action games outside of street fighter.
My suggestions are Thunder Fox and Bay Route. Both totally awesome games with a number of bizzare similarities to each other. I've also had very little experience in both.
Posted: Thu Dec 17, 2009 4:43 am
I could be up for this. They're yoko games, right? And God knows I've got some shit I can donate as a prize.
Anyone else in?
Posted: Thu Dec 17, 2009 7:39 am
I'm in! I don't know either of those games, but competitions are fun, especially when it's on classic titles.
Posted: Thu Dec 17, 2009 1:29 pm
Let's give it through the weekend for people to decide. Someone PM JoshF.

Yeah both side scrolling action.

And now, which game do people want
Posted: Thu Dec 17, 2009 9:17 pm
I'd rather play Bay Route. Thunder Fox is indeed awesome but has got some cheap bosses.
Posted: Thu Dec 17, 2009 10:20 pm
I don't know either game but I vote Thunder Fox because of burly men. AIRPLANES AND STUNT BIKES DON'T DO IT FOR ME BAY ROUTE.
Posted: Thu Dec 17, 2009 10:23 pm
I'd go for Bay Route b/c I own the flyer.
Posted: Sat Dec 19, 2009 10:03 am
I think JoshF's emails are bouncing, btw.
Posted: Sat Dec 19, 2009 3:43 pm
My vote goes to Thunder Fox due to the fact that I just had a serious credit in Bay Route and got to the last boss (I had a few boss strategies I remembered for way back when I last played it a few times though)
Bay Route wouldn't necessarily be bad for a comp though, there is a lot of high risk milking that could be done in the last 2 stages by destroying those damn annoying satellites. In the run I had I was lucky enough to get max blue capsules and lots of greens to fill the health bar up, and I just just ran past all the satellite things with enough health to get me through.

Like that sweet ESP Ra.de flyer? Wow, thanks GP!
