http://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.ph ... cd9c467601 - a more comprehensive guide to everything Batrider. This guide was updated on 21.07.2014 and it seems that the information I was passing about the rank getting increasingly harder with each play play isn't true (unlike in Battle Garegga apparently). So if you start the game with the easiest rank it will be this way for every credit you play - which should be good for survival and bad for scoring. I think this should be allowed on player's discretion.

Sel, I see you're putting as many as 8 credits into the (virtual) machine at the same time. Don't do this, apparently this increases rank. Seriously :) Quoting the shmups.system11.org guide:
Each frame, rank will be increased by rank_frame PLUS HOW MANY UNUSED CREDITS ARE IN THE MACHINE HOLY censored YAGAWA YOU GENIUS

Well, Battle Garegga is much more hardcore than Batrider and it was ported to Saturn in 1998. The only reason I can think of for the lack of Batrider and Battle Bakraid ports is that the Saturn Garegga was a commercial flop and shmups were becoming more and more niche by that point. But I wasn't really interested in the genre back then, so it's just my guess.

Good thing about Batrider is that you can just ignore all this esoteric stuff and the game's still great fun. Again: just a personal opinion.

^ Yep, I've been blissfully unaware of all this stuff until now. Doesn't feel half as silly as the insane rank management hoops you have in MMP and Pink Sweets though. Some of these developers are filthy sadists!

After being flooded with work and real life stuff last week, finally I have time to play for last 3 days of this round.

Macias - 3,914,690 - 6 - Miyamoto (C) x3 - MAME

6 stages, because one of extra boss fights (Bashi mkII) is considered a separate stage. I'm aiming at least at ALL-6 with Miyamoto. Almost did it this time, but I arrived at meeting point with Sobut on my last life, with no bombs and was too nervous to pull it off.
