Hi ClessxAlghazanth,
In this one the difficulty is "Start Rank", and with most Toaplan (+Raizing/8ing/Cave) games [especially Battle Garegge], rank increases with how well you play.  Some games, like Batrider, have hidden dips that appear when you have certain settings set - try putting the Coin 1 to free play to see what I mean.

best regards,

Thanks for the clarification , dink  :smilie:

Set the start rank to 'easy' and practicing my way through Batrider , that skull boss with helicopters around always gives me hard time :p

The thing with Raizing/8ing games is that after playing them for a while , it takes time to get back / adapt into more classic style shmups like Raiden , Strikers series , Toaplan games etc . Probably due to different score mechanic and playstyle , i think

By the way Sengeki Striker by Kaneko seems to have random little slow downs/speed ups and audio glitches , is it a know issue ?

Another game by same developer , Cyvern , runs without issues

Hi ClessxAlghazanth,
Yea, the cave/toaplan style is certainly a different breed of shooter - have you ever tried Guwange, it's like Ghosts'n Goblins meets shooter game, set in feudal Japan, with a very fun chain mechanic.  It's a really easy game, too.  I've managed to keep the chain from beginning to end once or twice.

The thing about Sengeki is, it's by Warashi.  Cyvern is by Kaneko, and such a fine game.  Sengeki is written poorly, and it shows - you've found that out :)
The problem isn't emulation - it's the same in MAME..  it's just an all-around bad game.

best regards,

I've stumbled upon this video of N-Sub running on the actual cabinet: https://youtu.be/Lqq4ZKyh3UA
We can see there are glittering pixels at the surface of the sea, which are missing in FBN. Sorry if that's a known issue.

Oh , my bad , thanks for the info , dink  :smilie:

I've always been curious about Guwange , but never given it a try till now

The gfx , sound and atmosphere all are top notch , certainly has that Cave vibe of 90's , which i love

Btw the socring seems to consist of blocking bullets temporarily by the sirit and turn them into coins , is it right ?

That's right, here's a strategy guide for Guwange, it's helped me a lot - I remember referring to this exact page over 10 years ago :)

Hi Igor_Arabe,
I've committed a fix for gcc, can you please test with VS and see if the previous bug (NeoGeo shows when no hw selected) comes back?

Unfortunately it's a missing feature in fbn and mame, I think it wouldn't be too difficult to add, though!

dink, can you check again golden axe arcade voices in windows build?
It seems like a "low quality", little different from mame and retroarch ports...i dont know if mame or fbneo is more accurate.

After Burner 2 - airplane smoke continues to show after a landing (at the end and you can see - in the middle of the games exists this stages too -).

Standalone and the libretro port use different default audio settings, the libretro port has 48k samplerate and both interpolations enabled.

Hi geese howard,
Recently they (MAME) added a filter to the upd7759 (pcm/voice chip) which softens the sound a little, it certainly sounds nicer and less harsh.  I'll try to add something similar.

I played the first stage of Afterburner II, at the end & after I land, the jet powers down its engines and a big puff of smoke appears, but then it goes away as it should.  Is it happening somewhere else?  Can you attach some savestates from right before it happens?  Are you using a current version from the usual place?
