Re: exA-Arcadia

Really wondering what Aka looks like on a horizontal setup. Does it do anything cool like psyvariar where the screen is filled with extra data and fully utilized? Or does it not take advantage of the extra space and just have black bars or static bezel type art? Anyone with the game already should ...

The video is probably 1.00, we have 1.10.
@Shou, any chance we can get the original version with slower bullets? ;)

Re: Aka & Blue Type R

Yes. The patterns are a little bit different too. I think the difficulty will put off most players. I've already spent 10,000yen playing this and can't get past stage 3. I'm not the best shmup player, but even I can get to stage 4 of DDP DOJ on 1 coin :oops:

Re: Aka & Blue Type R

Don't get me wrong. It's definitely a very polished game, but the difficulty is unforgiving on later stages. If the bomb charge refilled quicker, we might stand a chance. I also found the game a bit "easier" if you disable the story mode. Also having a bit more luck on 3:4 HUD. Maybe it just needs a...

Re: Aka & Blue Type R

Request for Tanoshimasu to tweak the difficulty please? (at least in the service menu). :oops:

Maybe have 4 settings.

1. Ja-hee-zuss! (what shipped)
2. Ultra
3. Hard
4. Normal

Re: Aka & Blue Type R

Strange that the noir works.

Did you try multiple Vewlix, or just multiple io boards?

Is there only 1 USB port on the exa?
