What version of MAME are you using Barry? It looks so much different to my upload, which was made using WolfMAME 156 smiley

Hi Frankie. I use MAMEPlus as the GUI front-end (version 1.5.4), which draws on MAME 147.

The new rom set in your score looks like an improvement. It seems to now emulate some of the colour overlays as well.

Some of these old games are great, but with the time limit, it must have been expensive being hooked on some of them smiley

Yes, it's an improvement with the colours. Great little game indeed smiley

The time limit is a killer, after having played so many later shmups where you can pace yourself.

I've just played Polaris - it definitely feels like the logical evolution of Sea Wolf. No time limit, rounds, and much more scope for strategy.

Yeah, onto my second pass through the genre, picking up the games that I didn't have on my abridged list.

This shmups odyssey has been such a fascinating experience I'm thinking I might write a book on the history of shmups!
