What is the bare minimum "requirement" for a 1cc to count (outside of clearing it in one credit of course).

Is there a difficulty requirement? A bomb use threshold you cannot go over (if bombs exist in the game)? Having to 1cc it with every available character?

Just doing it, I guess. Different difficulties would be considered different 1ccs (Novice Original vs. Original in Mushihimesama, Normal vs Lunatic in Touhou, etc.) and I'm not really aware of self-imposed bomb limits being a thing besides straight up not bombing once. 1ccing it with different shot types would also be considered separate 1ccs, as far as I've seen.

Casper was out doing charity work, cleaning the are of evil demon monsters, when Shrek-ura over there came out barking about "MAH SWAMP" and started attacking before the misunderstanding could be cleared up. Casper did nothing wrong and acted only in self defense, the fact that she didn't go so far as to kill Sakura speaks volumes of her merciful spirit and ability to show restraint.

default difficulty. anyone who goes beyond that(such as clearing with other ships, clearing with above average score etc.) is not a 1cc collector.

you should do it on default settings. some touhou games allow you to increase your starting lives and gus used some non-default life setting for the live futari run. those would not count
>>168284228
>clearing the same game with mutiple ships makes you not a 1cc collector
>>
>>168301464
>clearing the same game
that's the whole point, 1cc collectors just get it done quick and dirty. my first clearsare usually due to luck, so you need to get fairly consistent to clear the game again even if it's the same ship.
>>
clearing touhous with all ships it's something autistic
>>
>>168302416
no, clearing the same game again is easier than clearing another game. I guess you could make an argument for really shitty shottypes like maybe abrecco in futari ultra? Other than that it's even worse though. Just grinding away at the same game without even the goal of improvement
>>
>>168302651
that depends on the game and with what ship you've cleared the game, if you swtich from type a to type c in donpachi getting 1-all would be easier, bur if you switch from c to a it's going to be harder and will make you a better player.
>is easier than clearing another game
that depends, clearing something like ccwi with type-1 after type z, will be a lot harder than fucking off to clear some console/doujin shit on defaults.
>Just grinding away at the same game without even the goal of improvement
clearing twice will definitely improve you even if it's the same ship, your score will likely be higher as well.

If you actually want to play it it's worth full price. It's got a good range of difficulty even within its base mode. Strong style omote 2-all being pretty easy and power style ura 2-all being harder than DOJ, plus an interesting scoring system.

Not really. It's actually pretty easy with all the tutorials on the net. You can look up almost anything and just google it.

Neat, but oddly neither of those two are new additions. This seems to be a score attack event stage (well, two of them), rather than one of the actual weekly events that they usually run.

I also have no idea who that girl is or why they're using her instead of Reco. Is giving Reco the shaft a new running gag over at Cave? I suppose it's possible that Reco herself will be involved in the main weekly event, if they do decide to go full Mushihimesama this week. Or maybe it'll be Palm, and they'll lock Reco inside one of the gachas.
>>
>>168316150
how come most games are so fucking shit? both code and gamedesign wise.
>>
>>168315704
This is the correct approach. Programming is easy to learn and difficult master. Start doing what you can and improve as you go along. It's common for programmers to look at their older code and say wtf was I doing?
>>
>>168321890
>wtf was I doing?

Most people who make games do not play games themselves, they are just programmers. They can code really good, but have no idea about the most simple game design shit.

Its been around 3 years since i last messed around with mame. Just set up mame 0.182.

Grabbed all the cave games, Battle Garegga, the usual suspects.

I'd guess they were mostly influenced by Gradius, while Gradius was perhaps influenced by Xevious.
>>
>>168376108
I find it easier to move by an exact amount of pixels on a linear mechanical keyboard compared to controllers. Even so, probably no one has the consistency to do that without fail, and you'll always have the peculiar fact that movement you do with your ring finger will be slightly less precise than with other fingers.
>>
>>168389297

I had a bit of a hunt through the romlist myself,

found a few newer cave games work now (they didnt last time i was using mame),

the mushihimesama series, Espgaluda II, Ibara, Muchimuchi Pork & Pink Sweets all run well which i'm pretty happy about.

stuff thats in the MAME list since last time that i cant get to work are:

The Psyvariar series, XII Stag and Under Defeat. Might just be the mame version i'm using, either way its games that use the G-Net bios or the Naomi bios that wont work for me.
>>
>>168389971

as much as I agree the gradius series is classic, I was always shitty at them, I was much more of an R-Type guy back in the day. (or Heavy Unit, that game never gets the love it deserves)
>>
>>168394692
How'd you get Muchimuchi Pork and Pink Sweets to play?

>>168397579

I didnt do anything, just running MAME 0.182, no tweaks, they run at full speed for me. Dont know how much system specs would effect mame, running an I5 ivy bridge at 3.2ghz and 16 gigs ram. More than likely just the mame version?

That was good! I didn't play 100% optimally, mostly because I haven't really bothered to route stage H, but it went rather well, especially the last attempt.
And it was all no-misses too, though I did get hit a few times, but never where it mattered a lot for score.

I don't imagine that this score will make me a contender, but I'll try harder still in the coming days!

Thanks for watching, hope you enjoyed it!

It's one of my favorites, and I'm glad it's finally on Steam. It's not too difficult either, at least on the lower difficulties. I was able to make it to later stages in 1 credit with only about a dozen hours in.

Me again. Tried it to no avail. Thats ok. Guess I'll just boot up a highly more intensive game like BF1 that runs perfectly yet a fucking shmup like Muchimuchi is too much for it too handle. Thats like a fucking astrophysicist who can't read a thermometer.
>>
Probably has been asked a million times but how do i git gud

I love shmups and i've cleared some Touhou extra stages but i can't seem to get any better than that.

Even when i watch DOJ videos and try to mimic them i suck.
>>
>>168493175
Gotta be more specific than that anon, what's giving you trouble?
>>
>>168493175
practice. You're not gonna keep improving at the same pace you do at the beginning. If you keep pushing yourself, eventually improvements will take hundreds of hours but you still have ways to go before you would possibly cease to improve.
>>
>>168493175
>>168493352
oh and I forgot to mention, of course you should use all the reference material you can get. Replays, etc. to find the best strats rather than trying to invent the wheel again
>>
>>168493318
keeping chains going and memorizing specific movements i'm supposed to do in some parts of a stage.

also sometimes i just plain suck at dodging, i die very often to the stage 3 boss and sometimes even keep making mistakes in stage 2, regardless of how many times I play it. It's kinda discouraging but I just keep telling myself I need to play more.

Is there anything else to practice that i'm missing, i've been using savestates to repeat what i fuck up on over and over again but i just can't seem to get it down.
>>
>>168494560
Stage 3 boss is a pain in the ass, just keep practicing really it can take a while to get consistent

The devs have more or less abandoned BR.

http://steamcommunity.com/app/439490/discussions/0/152393186500788755/

"currently, we're trying to get off the ground with our latest project. while we're very grateful to everyone who supported BR, it hasn't exactly made us rich - meaning we can't really devote much of our limited resources to developing an update currently."
>>
>>168502086
Did they really expect a shmup to make them rich? An unfinished game at that? It was delayed forever and then they made a baffling move to rush it out just in time to compete with DDPR. Then in the end they abandon it and alienate the few people that bought it. Bad decisions all around.
>>
>>168493175
DOJ is hard and even harder is you try to score, so that's normal if you struggle.
The only answer is practicing - A LOT - with stage select or even better save states.
Do you stream? I could maybe give you some advices if you happen to stream during my free time.

my connection is not good enough for streaming or else i honestly would, but also too embarrassed to show my play either way.

Update: I tried Deathsmiles MBL after a while of playing nothing but DOJ and I 1cc'd it for the very first time!. I know it's one of the easier games if you don't go for scoring but I'm happy to see that i'm actually improving!

There's actually an achievement, at least in the 360 version, for playing as Windia and then not shooting Sakura at all during the fight. After like 4 minutes of pacifism she'll just explode on her own but nothing else changes and the dialogue is the same.

I didn't play much of the Classic mode, but I think you need to graze a lot, point blank as much as possible and no-miss until the final boss (to the TLB if you play on Hard or Extreme). If you can do that, then the part before the final boss should give you an absurd amount of points.

EoSD for probably being the least memorization-heavy game in the Windows series to play for simple survival, so I can pick it up on a whim. Unfortunately my laptop refuses to launch it for some gibberish reason, so I can't play it anymore.

She has to dodge the meat because she cannot have any. The closer she grazes to it the more her tear gauge fills up. This makes her more powerful because she shoots tears. She is literally crying because of the meat she has to avoid. And evidence is on its way, don't you worry.
