I did what the guy above me said & nothing work... In fact I tried everything under the sun & nothing works... Why isn't there a video on Youtube on how to get this to work? Atleast then I would understand it better. Someone get on this problem & let the world be known on how to fix this once & for all.
blackrook29 3 Sep 2023 16:04
can get this one to work. get fbneo error missing files. done some other arcade games fine, this and simpsons cant figure out. im not tech savy with bios n that
blackrook29 3 Sep 2023 16:22
got it working is it supposed to say level 4 at bottom
blackrook29 3 Sep 2023 17:33
this game is rubbish, stage 10 took ages to get past monkey to move on to next phase died back to start. bullets move faster than mind can react. not cut from this cloth.
DackTe 15 Sep 2023 08:00
change set. but not working :/
DryIce53 16 Sep 2023 15:24
on option > Neo-geo setting > Neo-geo mode AES europe/asia (english),return to option > DIP Switches > bios AES Asia...done(literally i truly mad about that for 2 long hours,well play without problem of dunno) i told read my dank hint geez -3-
JeffNostagicLR 19 Dec 2023 19:19
Hi, the cheevos are not working.
They are not enabling for each achievement.
Using AES, both Asia and Japan was used.
Made sure the hash is correct.
Using latest Retroarch v1.16.0
Difficulty is set to 4 (Default/Normal?)
ROM is the latest one.
Achievements are enabled, it shows "0/42 Achievements Unlocked" in the beginning.
Using FBNeo latest version

CAN SOMEONE please help/I already used the advice given in the posts above.
cgdiniz 19 Jan 2024 19:27
@JeffNostagicLR Your neogeo bios is probably missing some files, you need another one. Common issue with AES games

I wonder if this is gonna get MVS support someday
Mutawarrior 19 Jan 2024 20:09
If it was missing files the game would not even load.
cgdiniz 21 Jan 2024 04:42
Some neogeo zips don't have all the files needed to properly work on AES mode. You can configure as AES on Retroarch but will boot as MVS. You do need a proper zip, as it's documented here: https://retroachievements.org/viewtopic.php?t=8398

"DryIce53 16 Sep 2023 15:24
on option > Neo-geo setting > Neo-geo mode AES europe/asia (english),return to option > DIP Switches > bios AES Asia" <- that made achievs work. Thanks

Hi, thanks for the set. Is this limit of 4 credits related to the AES BIOS? Is it possible to lift this constraint? Very hard to beat the game with all characters in only 4 credits... not even speaking about 2nd loop...
ResetAlpha 12 May 2024 04:58
This feels super nice on arcade (as compared to first game on SNES). Slightly less braindead gameplay than the first game and very cool stages. Glad I chose this series as a sort of entry level to the genre.
cgdiniz 18 May 2024 17:48
@kingsof yes, looks like it was the dev decision. I'd cheerish a revision for this to add MVS support so at least more people could actually beat the game
ResetAlpha 20 May 2024 10:08
The only roadblock to beating the first loop is the final level, and it doesn't take THAT much work to finally conquer it. I did use some save state practice for level 10, but I don't think the requirements for beating the first loop are unreasonable.
kingsof 20 May 2024 10:46
Thanks guys. Yes, first loop is doable but it will take some serious (at least for me) practice. These cheevos are no joke ;-)
ResetAlpha 20 May 2024 18:58
S P O I L E R S ahead...




***

Hien might be a good first choice for getting through because of his OP sub-weapon, which takes care of so many units out of your line of sight, and his great concentrated bomb laser for "point-blanking" bosses. His sub has a similar function to Cincia and Ellen's, only it's better. It probably also makes him the best character for high scores.

Alternatively, there's Captain Silver and Arthur the baby.

Captain Silver's plane is wayyy too slow — (therefore make absolutely sure to complete your sweeps to the left or right when shooting down units!) — BUT he has a very strong primary weapon and forward shooting strength along with the sub-weapon, to go with a destructive bomb. If you can reach the final level with Silver, you'll have the sheer firepower to make short work of the bosses.

Arthur has a spread shot which, as far as I can tell, does the most point-blank damage in the game in addition with his sub-weapon. Because it is a spread-shot, you will only maximise his damage by getting up close and personal, though he's still reasonably effective regardless. His bomb isn't always straightforward to properly land, but over time I found it to be quite effective.

If you want a hard time then pick Mao Mao because, just like in Aero Fighters 1, she has piddle poor primary weapon strength. Though I do find her fun to use when she's fully upgraded and she effortlessly clears bundles of light enemies with one quick blast. Being prudent with ammo at full upgrade is a general rule for every pilot but it feels especially important for Mao Mao.

Finally, if the final level of the first loop (stage 10) is dumping hard then there's no harm in taking it to save-state-city. And to maintain credits and lives in general it's probably wise to learn how to effectively point-blank every boss of every stage.
kingsof 21 May 2024 20:22
@ResetAlpha Thanks ! I'm practicing with Silver and Mao Mao. Should try Hien as you suggest but his primary felt quite weak. Actually, there is no great character and that is the problem for me. I always feel punished by the weakness of each one of them especially when facing some vicious Psykio-type bullets. Quite a different feeling wrt Blazing Star that is fair enough to give you the needed gun power and speed (together with beautiful graphics and music).
ResetAlpha 24 May 2024 05:16
GGs on your Mao Mao completion. Gonna have to give Blazing Star a look.
ResetAlpha 24 May 2024 08:20
The scoring in this game is complete a** because basically for any real attempt at a high score you need to get lucky as all hell and get Mambu as the final boss, who dishes out an insane score bonus. Beating him also unlocked the Lar no bomb cheevo, though that's not so taxing anyway with Bobby the baby or Silver as long as you stay on top of him and pound him with your sub-weapon, providing you enter with at least 1 additional ship/life.
