In real life as in video games, I like seeing numbers go up so I decided to submit a score for the MAME category of Progear and snag a trophy because all the other scores are really really low (no offense guys!)

Pretty bad run but whatever.  Maybe I'll try and record a 1cc but honestly after playing an actual CPS2 for so long it's so shitty playing the MAME version.

Sound quality is awful because I still don't know how OBS works.

I dont know jack about Progear scoring, other than it's a lot of timing cancels with either laser or shot based on gem level, so a little too much for me. Shame this run didnt clear tho, I'd love to see you 1cc this unique game

@Pearl:

Yeah you really need to be quick with alternating your shot/gunner to get maximum cancels to get those phatty diamond chains.  The world record at the moment is 385 million so you can imagine how much you can milk this game if you know what you're doing.

I might go for a MAME 1cc eventually, but like I said playing the MAME version kinda sucks if you own a real CPS2 like I do lol.

Input lag, I assume? or are there other issues with the mame version I'm not aware of

I'll have to check this out and try to pick up on the scoring tactics, cave games almost always have ways to multiply the score. A yes vote from me :)

Pretty happy with this run actually - didn't let the on-camera nerves get to me like they do sometimes lol.  Got it on my first attempt too!
