Set is finished, hopefully things work alright. I tested things in one-run, so the main thing to worry about would be how things are affected by File Cabinet, but I think it should be fine.

Russian Roulette (5) pops when demo runs.Thanks for the set MGNS8M!

Weird, I can't replicate it in RAPCE with my "converted" bad-rom, and I can't replicate it in RetroArch with Quick-Beetle-PCE and the "correct" version of the game.

Well, I still can't replicate it, but I went ahead and fixed a problem with Guilty Gear, and added a new Requirement for Russian Roulette. Hopefully that fixes it.

Mastered :) Great set for a great game! I recommend making a seperate file right before leaving for the desert so you can re-fight Mummy dragon for the no damage & collect money after boss achievements.

Mastered! Overall a fun game and set, provided you can get past the slightly slippery controls. Save the second boss (Mummy Dragon) for damageless and the third boss (Zombie Dragon) for DRAGON DANCE.
