Dam, if you're on Facebook, search for RGF Shmup League and sign there. Most votes are cast there.

Darius Gaiden won this time, Kollision just didn't post the results yet.

Counting your vote River Raid would come in second place for this round of voting, so maybe next time? This would probably be another game polarizing opinions, but I think it should definitely be played at some point in the league. I'll be even more controversial: Xevious should too.

Yes master Kollision. This score was made with my second credit. In STGT 2k7 I finished without dying and I used one bomb I think. Let's try practice more to reach a higher punctuation.

Strewth! Two 1cc's already? I quite expect there to be another 4 or 5 more at that rate which, though stiffing us lesser mortals, would make for a tight Top 5. Way to go, guys.

So far, I am just shy of 1mill and will post that during the next few days - at least it puts me on the table. Have played through with Continues, and have absolutely no idea how some of the Bosses can be defeated without loss of life!

I assume, also, that unlike other Darius entries, this time your ship powers-up itself?

I'm not on facebook, but I'll just make sure I vote here in time.

Luckily this game works OK for me in mame, but I thought it looked terrible due to mame and my LCD monitor, so I dug out my PS2 and it's exactly the same! The graphics have some nice detail to them, and the enemy designs are great, but everything looks blurry and out of focus, is this just me?

No shame in using autofire Sputryk, makes the game much easier. For the route I'm using the only really difficult boss is the H one (Neon Light Illusion if I'm not mistaken). I just use 3 bombs on him. Also need to bomb at least once on the final boss. The rest of them are manageable (with autofire).

Hmm.. aren't you confusing it with the (vastly inferior) Gradius series?

I'm using CRT, wouldn't call it blurry, it just has a distinct "pseudo 3d" visual style + various effects.

New score - could have easily been 6,9 million. Got greedy, didn't want to bomb, died stupidly. Maybe tomorrow. I also need to learn how to capture mid-bosses.

You need to hit only the orb in their bodies.

Nice going. :)
