Are there any non-japanese roms of this one?

I can't understand what going on and there isn't even time for a snapshot of the score before the continue screen

Here's a guide that explains, among other things, how to translate the hiscore screen:

http://world-of-arcades.net/Cave/Guwang ... /index.htm

Also, important note for MAMErs: use the Master version, not the Special version (which is equivalent to the 360 port's Arrange Blue mode). If the title screen is blue and you can't get to the test menu by holding F2 you have the wrong version.

(Side note: looks like I picked the right time to join this here forum! Love me some shumps. Just don't expect to see me at the top of the leaderboards - I'm not that great at shmups in general, and Guwange isn't exactly my best game)

I don't know if everybody's aware of what goes on in this game, but I found this nice page for us to have a starting point:

I've been watching a few videos, looking forward to playing it on Live - maybe tomorrow!

^ Cheers Kollision, that'll come in handy hopefully. Love this game, but I'm rubbish at it, seeing this as a reason to try and get better.

I'm struggling on this one! But at least only being able to get to level 3 so far means I don't need to worry too much about translating the score :)

holy censored, I'm sorry, oboewan, such a retarded thing of me...
I didn't notice I had posted the same link you did
I guess that's what happens when you're doing ten things at the same time in front of the computer :?

Got some experience of Japanese - hiragana, katakana and (a very little amount of) Kanji. Want to try and work out the score without checking that website.

Also, how do you guide all the coins to your character? Do you need your familiar to be present?

[edit] Score sorted, but don't know what the Kanji is between first two and last four numbers. Checked the help page, but is of no help on this point! :roll: :lol: Think I might have figured out coin directing - we'll see next time.

As there is no English edition, perhaps a playtest prior to nomination would have been helpful in light of translation issues!

The 'score screen' is what you see in my post. Your score is posted down the left side, all in Kanji scripture - Two numbers, an unknown character, then four numbers and another unknown character. I can probably find out what they are, given a bit of time (I don't think my wife will help as she doesn't care for games...)

I'll probably skip this week. For me one of the joys of the shmup genre is watching numbers going up and seeing previous records broken. Having to translate scores kinda negates that feeling.

The game is excellent though.

Stage 4 is really hard, can get to it on my first life and then just lose all of it.
The characters are in order: Shishin - Kosame - Gensuke

I'm still not comfortable with the chaining system, let alone dodging on bosses while keeping the chain!!!
On Monday I'll resume playing, need to travel during the weekend. :?

Guwange? .....feh.


Not doing that one. Fun game, bloody horrid scoring system.

Really, REALLY hate chaining systems. Much as I like Cave, I leave about half of their games unplayed or just outright disliked most of the time due to that.


Till the next round, then.
