Blazing Star: NGFL High Score Challenge
priest
Hi there

I think its about time that we challenged each other in different Neo geo games. Let's start with "Blazing star" MVS/AES, and since this is just for fun and I think we can trust each other to play fair and honest we don't necesarily need proof in form of photos or such (Unless you really want to ofcourse).

I will update this first post what the current ranking looks like.



BLAZING STAR - GAME OF THE WEEK THREAD:

The rules:

*Play whichever version you like: NEO GEO MVS / NEO GEO AES / EMULATOR

*Difficulty:
NORMAL SCOREBOARD: MVS - level 3 / AES - NORMAL setting
MVS SCOREBOARD: MVS - level 4 / AES - MVS setting

*Lives: 3 (Default setting)

*Credits: 1

*multiple runs as training is of course allowed. Also if you manage to surpass your previous score then just post it and I'll update the first post.

Priest - You are the best Smile

This is a great idea Priest - I can't play on my NG console at the moment - but I will give this a go in a few days. I hope there is no closing date. Its a shame I can't enter now because then I would be 2nd.

Thanks Riko Smile

Im looking forward to a challenge for the pole position in this game. After all thats why some of us are here for in the first place, to play some games. And I think this is a great way to inspire each other into actually playing our collection of games and also triggering each other to get better at them.

Riko: What do you mean you cant play on your Neo geo console at the moment?

Absolutely no closing date, this challenge will run as long as there is any interest. So far you are the only one that has shown any interest, Riko. I think that is a bit strange Roll Eyes

Come on guys and gals join me on the top ten list (or push me off).

So there is faith of players in this little challenge. I suppose you don't want us to cheat or keep saving and loading states in MAME emulators, not to mention autofiring otherwise we'd have no skill in doing so.

P.S Let me tell you that the ship I always choose is Leefa's.

Score: 1,032,390

Rank: C

Stage: 4 (the early part)

Ship: Windina

I think this is a great idea Priest. When I first saw the topic I didn't reply immediately because I wanted to wait until I had played Blazing Star. I can remember there was a thread like this for Metal Slug a while back. It would be nice if we did this thing more often. I'm not that skilled at shooters so I think my score will be beaten quite easily. It's the final configuration of the level 3 boss that causes me problems. There aren't many places to hide from the enemy shot patterns.

I just want to say as well that I don't believe anyone here is going to cheat so we don't need to show any evidence.

And I think this is a great way to inspire each other into actually playing our collection of games and also triggering each other to get better at them.


Yes I totally agree with that.

Merlin: Well done Thumbs Up First post now updated (yellow is supposed to look like gold)

Will: I think that goes without saying. Welcome to enter the challenge...

About doing multiple runs as training is of course allowed. Also if you manage to surpass your previous score then just post it and Ill update the first post.

Well done Merlin - you're not making it easy for us. Priest - you are no longer the best Smile

Priest - just very exhausted (as in real exhaustion) at the moment - my consoles fine Smile I spent the last 2 evening playing Snes games - which doesn't help. I can do normal stuff - its just anything that causes my heartrate to go above a certain speed - makes me feel physically sick and weirdly slow. I'll be alright in a couple of days - I have a habit of overdoing things at the moment.

Will wrote - So there is faith of players in this little challenge. I suppose you don't want us to cheat or keep saving and loading states in MAME emulators, not to mention autofiring otherwise we'd have no skill in doing so.


haha - yes there'd be no point cheating like that anyway - because you might as well make a score up and post it instead of bothering to even play the game.

I don't even like using cheat codes on games - it seems stupid - whats the point in playing it - if you skip to the last level, I have been *sneaky* in exams in the past - buts that's all about being resourceful Smile

Riko: Im sorry to hear about your current condition:( Is this something you were born with or is it something that you have "caught" in later years?

priest that's an great idea i just started training, it sucks that when i look at your posting i started playing pulstar like crazy then i was like hold on i can't chose the ship they must be talking about b;lazing star ...ahhhh darn it
 
priest
Rbelmonte: Thanks

Ah well since Pulstar is a bit more difficult than Blazing star, you might actually have an advantage in the training you got Smile

Looking forward to seeing your BLAZING STAR Wink highscore...

My High Score is 1194120. My stopping point is the 3rd Stage Boss Part 2 and my rank is C. I took about several hours of practice to get this far. It was fun. Which ship did you guys choose. Mine was Leefa's Windina (The green one that shoots acid green waves). Whoever chose Asayuki's Pelpos deserves a lot of praise for daring to choose such a difficult fighter.

When we decide what we should get our high scores on next, we'll see what is suitable. In games like Burning Fight and Fatal Fury, you're more likely to get victory and playthrough more than a decent high score, at least that's how I see it. Blazing Star was a wise choice because it has several strategies to increase your score. Next I would like Magical Drop 2 or 3, Puzzle Bobble 1 or 2 or even Sonic Wings 2 or 3. What do you think? It's all our choice.
 
RiKo
Will - you rule! Smile I don't like all this talk about 3rd stage. I am not sure I will even get that far! Having said that I have played Pulstar a fair bit in the past, and if that is good training - hopefully I will be OK.

Riko: Im sorry to hear about your current condition Is this something you were born with or is it something that you have "caught" in later years?


Well I was really ill for many years, but I have sort of recovered. I say sort of, because my immune system is destroyed, and I get physically tired very easily - and I can't drink alcohol. I am also allergic to almost everything (I never used to any allergies except hayfever) To be honest though I am very happy Smile because things are really good now compared to what they were. I don't think any of my problems will be permanent. (though they do seem to be dragging on a bit:() . Thanks for your concern Priest Smile

I have just coincidentally ordered Magical Drop 3 on MVS - sound good to me - but we keep this challenge up for a while first.

That's an impressive score Will. Thumbs Up My 'reign' at the top didn't last long! I'm going to have another go tomorrow.

I found this today and thought it was interesting:

http://shmups.sys...hp?t=20685

It's pretty incredible the scores that 'hardcore' shoot 'em up fans can acheive. One thing I noticed as well is that most of the high scores on that site were achieved with Windina. I've always thought that was the best ship to use.
