"Finish all stages" achievement only work when you set first 4 stages in order:Strite->Ruin->Air-Raid->Daser

Please use Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar (U). I thought Thunder Force IV (E) will work properly, but score and some other values appear to be buggy.

I will leave the name for the game as original Thunder Force IV to associate it with the series.

How to get Metal Squad Ecore? I played this in sound test and nothing.
15 Dec 19:34 2015
There is a track similiar in sound to "Metal Squad", called "Omake 5", you gain access to in the menu, after finishing the game. You need to listen to it for awhile to unlock this achievement.
