Sorry for not taking part this week, I was made redundant last Monday so have been rather preoccupied. Wife is naturally pretty upset so no gaming 'til I straighten things out. Really annoyed as I was particularly looking forward to Dimahoo, and my bartop will supposedly be ready next week. Will join in if I can.

I'm trying to follow this scoring guide using the gunner for the first level https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JWB1HUW35Y

But how is this guy shooting diagonally without moving? Is there a way to lock in a direction? I'm using a USB arcade stick if this means anything, should I be using something with dual analogue sticks? This guy makes it looks so easy, how frustrating

does anyone want to take my spot on my team? I'm really not getting any decent scores and I really won't have enough time this month, so it isn't really fair for my team. Sorry guys

This is my pathetic best attempt, sorry shmups are definitely not my strength. And now I have to go dog sit at my parents for the weekend so I won't be able to get in any more attempts.

I hope not. Dual analogue would make this ship insanely easy to play as...

I hope to get some more runs tonight. Otherwise, this will have to do.

Ugh. Have barely been at home, alone, and awake all week. Tossing up a score right now that's very sad just to get something. Have a screenshot on my phone but not mucking around with getting it posted for this pathetic... MIGHT have another hour to play tonight but I got some friends inviting me out to bars tonight so who knows.

KalessinDB - Castration Nation - 534,358 - Stage 1 (boss) - Beam

Did I mention I am TERRIBLE at shmups?

Edit: Also, screw you hippies who know about games like these, going from Battle Garegga week 1 where it's ALLLLLL good to hit things with your ship and you won't die to this where you do RIGHT in the next week :lol: I had just gotten used to being able to collide with ships fine!
