In the past few days, Meits spent his time finishing all of Konami's epic sideview shooters (except Super Cobra) in openMSX. The videos, visually sharp as a razor, have been uploaded to YouTube for you to enjoy. Where applicable, Japanese/English roms have been played using a European MSX in order to get English texts. The openMSX console command toggle_freq was used to force the game to run at 60Hz.

Note that without Nemesis 2 in slot 2, Salamander can not be finished the right way... Nasty commercial trick I say Big smile

What cheat did I use (besides crashing and beam back a second before the crash)?

well, besides that... I checked out your Parodius video since I adore the game graphics and musix of that shooter. And I noticed several times that your player got hit without dying. The most obvious example is at the very end while slaying \m/the end-boss. There's a true laser-hit, and you survived miraculously. Smile

Ro, that is indeed miraculously, but my console will not show any trail of poking Wink
What openMSX makes of it, I don't know... Maybe the reverse sets in too late?

Anyhoo... No cheats were used, just reverse...
