    Posted: 21 August 2012 at 8:26am
After mr 'Expert Repair' of my MT conversion R-Type I finally got the first loop of R-Type down with 1-Life. This is a first loop only replay. The 2nd loop seems sooo hard I'm not even sure I want to try and learn it ;/

Nicely done Clap

Gonna give it a go myself - never yet managed it on one credit, usually find myself dying in stage 4 because my brain struggles to keep up!

Nice! 

I just can't get past Level 7, got to midway on it twice. 

Drives me mad cos I can often get to Level 6 or 7 without dying.

Thanks guys. The difficulty really ramps up on level 4 doesnt it. I think Stage 6 is by far the hardest stage. And Stage 7 is easier than 6 for some reason.

Overall I think it's a pretty unbalanced game. Any death past stage 4 and you're pretty much scewed ;/

I had most problems on Stage 6 when trying to get the 1-Life here, even though I spent half of my time learning that stage alone.
My video is currently scheduled for 7th September :D

Good job. ;) R-Type is still the greatest shmup of all time, followed closely by its offspring. As much as I love the game I never did feel the desire to attack the second loop myself either, I think I've made it to 2-3 whenever I've cleared the first loop. Loops are kind of dull...

@Smraedius: hah yeah it's pretty brutal isn't it. How come september 7th, is that R-Types birthday or something? ;)
@Ghegs: thanks mate. Yeah 2-3 is my best a well, I don't think I'll bother learning the loop, I'm happy with just doing the first. Besides, there's too many other good games I wanna play. I need to find a cheap SunsetRiders from somewhere but I can't for the life of me find one...

I just have an upload schedule, as it would be silly to dump a load of good videos at once, and then wait a year until I upload more. 
I've just made so many lately that it is a bit behind.

Ah cool, more gungames? I miss playing gungames in the arcades. There used to be a cool little community in my local arcade back in the late 90's battling on the scoreboards. Unfortunately we don't have any in the city centre anymore. :/

Just the rest of this Ridge Racer Turbo set, then the R-Type video, then Point Blank 2 Advanced and Salamander 2 on the list. I did the R-Type run about a month ago :D
We also had a small lightgun game scene, which ended around 2006, and I would say that is what improved me greatly in games back then.

Ah cool, I was thinking of getting that Salammander 2 from the sales thread, awesome game, but I think I've spent too much on pcb's the past 6 months. I need a little break I think. But I wouldn't say no to a cheap SunsetRiders. ;)

It took me 25 hours over 4 days to do, which is more than most games for me.

Good work Smraedis ;) We both seem to have very different strategies , especially for stage 6. I think my strat for stage 6 especially is very different to yours, with me mainly hiding in safe stops rather than taking on the piston enemies, and in yours you take them head on with the ripple shot. I think mine is a little too risky relying on too much precise positioning.

Good work :)
