Oh, that extra stage (when nem2 in other slot) is in one of them 3 aligned planets (those you have to choose from which to fight first)
I believe it's hidden in that blue stage (vertical flight) in one of them "eyes" in de middle of the screen. But you have to obtain the blue crystal to see the GOOD end demo (which you get at the end of the extra stage which is the last stage of nemesis 2 btw)

If you find the blue crystal, the extra stage (against the real master) appears before the last stage (against Salamander). It's indeed just like the final stage of Gradius 2, but with an additionnal boss. Then comes the last stage, the big eye, the last boss and the GOOD end demo.

Without Gradius 2 in slot 2 and without the blue crystal, you'll get a BAD end demo : the real master will laugh at you Shocked!

In my memory, you can simulate a konami cartridge.

Turn on your MSX
When basic is ready, Put your cartrigde on the slot (quickly, left to the rigth)

The code is :
Out &hfe,2
Poke&h...,..

Crying I don't remenber the code.

When you play the stage of nemesis2, graphics are really ugly and the stage is easiest.

I do not recomend you to do that. That is quite dangerous for you MSX, you can toast it. This kind of advices should be given with some care.

Don't you mean the Crystal Breeze? Smile

btw, Defeating the Boss with 2 players is even easier... the option eaters come after the same ship everytime (i think they always go for player1) so have player 2 get all the options, and let him blast the eye from the bottomright corner, while the first player stays in the topleftcorner dodging the option killers, which is very easy when you have enough speed.

With single player mode it's as Ro says: kill it before it even has the chance to release those buggers...

You're right.
By seeing this text, everyone sees that the operation is dangerous.
I hope to find this code in my memory.

Thanks for all the tips guys, greatly appreciated.
I guess I just need to shoot more... Wasn't sure if I was hitting the wrong place or something so I didn't try enough times... lol... nice to know.

Manuel - it's not a common machine, in fact, it's unique! ... It's the only MSX ever owned by me! ;-)

indeed it's called CRYSTAL BREEZE

(you ARE collecting them extra bonus pods are ye? Those are the ones that give acces to new weapons. Collect 15 of'm and you'll gain another weapon. Screwlaser is the most powerfull)

Is screw actually more powerfull? I always figured it was just ___wider___, which isn't always such a good thing.... I generally find Meteo a good balance between width for 'gunk clearing' but still being narrow enough to both see what is in front of me and fire through some of the narrow 'tunnels' to hit guardian target areas. Has the bonus of being able to clear the 'fancy gunk' on Lavina, unlike the other lasers.

I totally agree. Screw is not more powerfull, just wider. Meteo is the best for me. I don't use the screw laser until I reach the Operation X stage.

meteor laser is more powerful... there's some stuff in one of the stages which can only be removed by the meteor laser...
