score at 9:30. I don't have a video for my highest score. Please also vot for my scores on:
( arcade emulated)
big up Jess, challenge over for me, finished 1st finally. Final score at 789 000 ( got another vid). Found many ways to spam grenades.
Voted on some. will check the new scores.
I came 2nd at the challenge ( mastered the ones on pc engine and super famicom).
The 1st had the same story, finished it with a friend when he was a kid. He was around 800 000.
Ahaha, we're the same age.
got a video I made at the beginning of the challenge, not a highscore but area1, full skateboard/ full speed.
no just a naomi universal cab but got a clean toshiba/nano screen. It's used for my 31k games now I've finally found a cyberlead for 15k games.
Played last summer for a challenge. don't have a video. @denis the menace, saw your score, you mastered the game. I played non-stop for a month couldn't get to the end. If I remember well , I lost stage 6-1 ( or 5-4)
nice cab. Yes vote. got a wonderboy highscore too, will have to find it ( played in a challenge 5 months ago).
smooth run, yes vote
mastered , yes vote
I'd be glad to watch & vote for your scores, send the links here.
score at 28 min 19.
Put my hands on an old video I made 6 months ago. dlded on youtube. RAF is not entered in the highscores but It's got my name on the youtube entry. Same you tube channel as my other highscore on robocop: https://studio.youtube.com/video/6x_69lYD9zw/edit.
Thx. Yeah, was playing it for a challenge. Played for a month. Improved the shooting of grenades and destroyed everthing that could be destroyed. Too bad I didn't get the highest score on video.
also not in arcade but in arcade emulated. The cabinet is an original one but the system is emulated ( as you can see at the beginning of the video)
score at 27min30. I didn't use the glitch with the bazzoka on level 3 as you can see. Got a higher score but not on video ( and some people here don't vote if there's no video). You can see it in the highscores as well.
yes vote, your video was much better than the whole bunch of films
I managed to break my previous score. AS said before #1 score in this board is not the actual version of magical drop III - negeo emulated or was played in TAS.
Thx for finally getting my score right. I couldn't record the vid, low battery. I finished third during a challenge, 2 other guys beat my 1CC-ending but glad I did it, took me a month of exclusively playing it y night & day.
didn't enter 6208 score, low battery when filming.
Score can be seen at the end. Played on a naomi universal cabinet with rpi2nuc by aje. Emulated by FBA.
@dumple : didn't manage to break your score. A bit more chains & farming needed at the beginning.
oh ok, Didn't know that.
Finally cleared the battle/ VS mode in magical drop II. Black pierrot is easier than in magical drop III ( never managed to beat him in MDIII, never seen anyone beating him aprat from players who cheat/ play in TAS). But teh previous characters in MD 2 are a lot harder than in MD 3.
Well done, playing mainly on magical drop II & III. I got this one too, when I have the time, I'll try to break your score, but Pretty high score.
BTW , I think the 1st one is called "chain reaction" and not "magical drop".
OK, perfect, if it's a game center, the original pcb is compulsory ( some gamecenters have a pandora or else inside but it's against the law). Yes vote , nice cab by the way.
would vote yes, just need to see original pcb in cab.
yes vote. Watched your vid, you taught me a few tricks. I love this game but I'm not really that good
I finally deserve my original artwork from magical drop II in the background
thanks for voting. Glad I finally mastered this one, it's been more than a year now, playing now and then. I checked on the internet, I haven't seen anyone with a 1CC/ black pierrot and over 10000. The best one is from world of longplays and it's a little lebow mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dGxy0rULdU
they look pretty neat in the pic
mint old school cabs.
As before, can't link the facebook URL to the site: there's the link :https://www.facebook.com/raphael.fouquet/videos/vb.1425370329/10221837002620656/?type=3
does anyone know how to pull it off?
played on a NUC with pri2nuc on mame
Not really a highscore ( only got to end of level 2 before the boss) but still.
Video coming right away.
setting in the pic : level 4, number of lives not needed ( it's a highscore from an arcade game), if you lose , you start from 0. RAF in the highscores/ RAF is my pseudo.can't be more explicit than that. Plus the video as requested by people who rely only on it.
I just think some people who vote against either do it as trolls , or don't even know the game they're voting for.
never heard of this game. thx for sharing, yes vote
the one who voted against: " I think a photo alone isn't sufficient evidence for this score. Video desired" should learn how to read.
I got a video this time. The FB Url doesn't work on the site: here's the link:
As stated to the#1 rank, I think his score wasn't made on neogeo, there is no secret stage shown in the vid ( there should be with that type of score) and the character used needs to be unlocked with a code. his young strenght becomes adult strenght.
Great score, yours should be #1. I'm getting closer.
Sry to bother but I don't think this score is legit : on MD III neogeo, adult strenght is not a playable character ( you have to do a trick at the select screen to get him/ 0:11 in the video above). Moreover, if the score is over 200,000 at the old man ( don't remember his name, you get a secret stage , there isn't any in this video. And you have to beat blcakpierrot before getting to the last 2 bosses ( not including the last black pierrot).
Totally agreed! most shmup don't have autofire as default. That's how these shmups should be played. Image fight is damn hard by the way
Finally made it. As said before , this isn't the orginal MVS , so even if on a real cab, I post it in emulated.
Magical Drop 2 , 1CC, black pierrot beaten, over-10000 score.
I dig this, yes vote
I got it in my arcade cab. This is a yoko game for the NUC ( naomi universal cabinet). My score is 92 ( red numbers) on the original game, but there's no naomi arcade score section.
Yeah, this is the original magical drop 2 cartridge for sfc on a retroduo portable V2 red ( you can see it in picture 2. I play this game on any platform available. I got some good score on saturn and ps1 too. My favorite one remains on the arcade cab but the saturn and ps one version are quite similar. This snes score can't be done on the arcade version.
sry down left pour vs cpu
I also have some pretty good scores in vs cpu ( up right when choosing your game) in hardest mode/ Black pierrot beaten in 1CC.
The million was scored in hardest mode in highscore / alone : up -left when choosing your game
agreed with omargeddon, with an everdrive , there's no difference whatsoever in an original console ( got the everdrive for pce and 200 original games, it plays the same). The rom plays as if it was the real pcb.
With a retron 5 ( console emulationg snes, megadrive etc...) ,the real cartridge can be inserted but the console emulates the games , so there are some slight differences.
Another question could be raised, when playing on a real machine, does the controller count, since you can now play with 3rd-party controllers or even adaptors ( ex: I play on my ps1 with the snes hori arcade stick with an adapter from raphnet tech).
Yes vote, I had never heard about this shmup. thx for sharing. The gameplay seems fine.
name is needed. no vote for me.
Great score, yeah I think this should be arcade/mame/emulated if this is not the original pcb ( or a bootleg) inside the cabinet. I did the same for magical drop 2&3. I played on a real cab but with an hfs box inside.
Good Job, another great shmup on the pce. I love the atmosphere.
Yeah , I've seen that. Got mine 6 years ago when Japan didn't sell that-expensive games. I managed to get one sold without the spincard but found that it was hidden under the cd case. One of the best deal in my quest for gems, mint condition. Won't sell it ( unless I'm broke). played it a lot ( with the cheat for more money to start the game when I didn't know the patterns). Never managed to get your score. Congrats
As stated before, I play magical drop 2&3 in a real game center alone. I do not think the owners would let me bring a tripod and camera to record a vid. As stated before this is called a new net city, a real arcade cab and the initials are pretty obvious. fed up with newgen people who only rely on vids ( that can be fake as well as pics)
Got the original one. epic game. You're good.
great game, never managed to reach level 40. Got stuck round 32. pretty tough when only one neighbor is alive.
original PCB ? Great Egret 3 btw. Would love to have a rotative screen on my candycab.
used to play it on Saturn. seeing your vid made me wanna find out the cd and run it.
played 2 more credits today. Got to the boss, Princess ( not to the almighty black pierrot) but lower score, round 8000.
score's very bright but readable. Yes vote for me.
didn't know that, got it on saturn. Great score.
Are you playing with a stick or a spinner ? ( can't play that kind of game with a stick).
Arkanoid-like with topless gals? I didn't know the game.
1st score for this one. Only played once, got to World , not too bad. Hope I can ICC the game and get to black pierrot soon. Would be glad to get this one ckracked by a player, that would give me incentive.
sry for the misspelling
Got a better a shot at it this time. Think I can event do better but do'nt have much time during my lunch break.
Thanks, I'll check. This can be very handy for the dust.
Nice sheets for your consoles. Where did you get that ?
GG by the way
yeah, the name's tatsujin in Japanese. After seeing your video, I gave it a shot.I had been a long time since I last played it. Seems harder than the one on genesis ( more bullets/ faster speed ?). Anyway, couldn't get very far in the game. Once I manage to finish magical drop 2 hardest mode sfc in 1CC, I'll get back to shmups and try to learn the patterns from tatsujin. I got stuck at 5min on you video and my score was far from yours.
Great score, got it on pc engine. Tough shmup.
Got it on my NUC, original game. Never got this high-score. For now at least
YES vote, pretty obvious, you're the one who scored that one.
yeah , thx to you all. I don't always have a cam on me , nor can I record the games I play from my computer. I either play on my consoles or an arcade cab.
Someone doesn't know if I'm the person who achieved this score? He should check my other scores on magical drop 1,2 & 3. RAF is pretty self-explanatory.
Yeah, saw it on a game you mastered. I just got a naomi universal cab with RPI2NUC inside. But my pal managed to get a blast from Japan 5 years ago. He installed the HFS box inside. I can't play magical drop on my NUC ( just the whole set of naomi games in 31k). Don't have enough room in my gameroom for 2 candycabs. So he comes to play naomi games and I go there to play 15k games.
Waiting to get my request on Magical Drop II / snes accepted. I got some higher scores on this one.
Yeasterday, on a friend's blast city. HFS box inside. Pixel perfect.
Impressive score. Love the game, but can't get through stage 4 in 1CC. Last time I played, I was in a creepy game center in Japan.
thx , still can't beat the 2nd secret character in 1CC: black pierrot. Took me 2cc to finish the game. But working on it.
This was played on a real arcade cab ( new astrocity at the game shop round my job). the cab has no pcb , I think it' s recall box inside. Down below the best time bonus I got so far:Reply
Better score this time, far from #1, can't imagine playing the game for an hour without being stuck. Anyway, I don't think I can do better than this one, took me time & skills to got that.
Hope you enjoy.
Thanks for your votes, finally got my 1st score in High Score. Will soon send more scores on Magical drop 1 & 2 on snes and Magical drop 3 on neogeo emulated. Here's a teaser for MD III: 1 shot at the pre-final boss: Reply
legit. Nice Blast City btw
Yes, score mak game.
Nice Never managed to beat the joker ( his last shots).
Thx, managed to get a better score : 12787. Got it on camera. Waiting for a legit 1st score, then I'll post this new one. I'm far from the world rec ( the player must have had a lot of all-cleared and 10000 pt bonuses to get that far). But I'm pretty glad I finally got ranked #1 at the game.
Thx for the tip.
