Uhm... ok, my recording was deleted. The reason it plays upside down is because the screen is flipped by default! Don't know why, I only know it happens just a with a few Taito games (the same that use Rayforce's driver, I think it's taito.z or something). That's why I had to turn on the option -flipx and -flipy. Apart from the .nv issue, is that a valid reason a recording must be deleted?

Pretty much all games that use NVRAM have a configuration screen, usually accessed by pressing F2. You should be able to change the settings to the defaults there. Exit through either the configuration screen's exit option (if it has one) or by pushing F2 again. Note that F3 is NOT recorded in an inp.

Didn't know that. Thanks a lot, Barry!

upside down is ok, but nvram requirements were voted out. very nice recording btw, but i'm sure you can top it. also, the recording wasn't deleted, just zeroed, you can still access it by searching for rayforce and 99 lowest position.

Heh. Thank you. I used to finish Gunlock 4-5 years ago(btw, what a sad ending sequence...), so I hope that the garbage on the screen will soon be gone.. it's hard to play later stages in those conditions :)

"(the same that use Rayforce's driver, I think it's taito.z or something)."

Nope,taitoz.c is the driver of Chase HQ,Continental Circus and others.The driver of Rayforce is the taitof3.c :"it doesn't support true 90 degree rendering".(from the MAME source). So you have/had the Sega Saturn,Vaz?(since F3 cabinets are pretty rare here in Italy)

-- Kale (angelo.salese@tin.it), September 21, 2001.

No, no, I played the arcade version (but I'd like to play the PSX version too, since I saw it once and it seemed better than the original)... here in Pescara I played quite a lot of F3 games (Gunlock, Bubble Symphomy, Bubble Memories and other I don't remember now), I didn't know they were rare in Italy. I was lucky :)

Anyway, I re-record my rayforce.inp file, this time deleting the .nv file: I died on Area 5 (in the previous, zeroed score I reached Area 6) but scored over 1,600,000 points... the secret is to use all the rays at ones to get big points :) I'll upload it as soon as I record the japanese version too.

Stupid can not make good score at ray series.

-- Truth Teller (weavuspert@yahoo.co.jp), September 22, 2001.

Then why not tell us Stupid guys here at Marp HOW to get a better score Hisa?

-- QRS (qrs@telia.com), September 22, 2001.

He's the truth teller, QRS! Not the game helper. All clear no miss.

-- Joe Ledesma (JoeyL21988@yahoo.com), September 22, 2001.

Maybe the name "MI.S.SING URLŽer" fits more.



-- QRS (qrs@telia.com), September 23, 2001.

There. Nearly 1,700,000 points. That's all I can do right now, being the video emulation not working perfectly. So, Mr. Truth (?) teller, this is my truth, tell me yours. (ever heard of Manic Street Preachers, btw? :))
