Nice! I can see the bullets, life, and score ingame is more logic with the game topic than the other version. Is it like the original? Have you seen it? I don't.

Has it any other improvement?

Thanks!

it took me so many hours to do it.
I've never seen the game, but it's still the same as an American Laser Games.
Even the hardware it uses is the same

Yes I tried today in my arcade at 640*240 15hz with crt gun and works nice, I only played the beggining.

 

One question: for me, the trigger activated crosshair option works in the other singe games but not here, it seems to show crosshaire.png.

I like this option because it doesnt distract you when aiming but shows where you last shot, and it's like the original did.

It is not perfect in daphne singe, because if you are moving the gun when shoot, you can see the trigger activated crosshair moves, and it shouldnt, but you can fix it with ahk bloking the mouse movement while thrigger is down.

Any advice to make it work?

This was phasermaniac.

I'm after the Marbella vice video content for years, but I cant find it.

Yars ago, I asked to Rdg, who uploaded this video 

 but he didnt want to share, dont know why, because previusly, when he was asking for help, he said he would.

And later Arcadecat, an association that bought the only original arcade that worked, and they only seemed to want it emulated with mame.

a Biblioteca Nacional de España in Madrid and in the Red Publica de Lectura de Euskadi in Vitoria. But you need some premission to take.

What about the trigger activated option, can be used?

nice job famawizard, for the use of the gun take my script as an example, making hitbox files is a long job, but it is necessary.
While for the directions in the alley scene you will need to script yourself, there is no where to start

Thanks... In FF, thank's God, the targets are static, so I hope  hitboxs should (SHOULD😅) not be necessary. One problem is that often they are very near each other. I think the original arcade was very very difficult. One thing that I will not implement is the randomlyness of the levels. In the original game you can play the levels in any order, while in my version you must follow a single route, but all scenes are present, except one small interlude that I have reconstructed but is impossible to insert (but is a non playable scene). Then thee are two scenes excluded because they are the exact reflection of another scenes (left vs right). Finally.. Some scenes are with substituted audio, be c in the LD rip not always audio is in sync with video.

Hitboxes are needed otherwise when you shoot you don't jump to the scene where the enemies explode.
Gun games don't work like move games

this is how it should be

the origanl cartoon from freedoom fighter is taken from  a tv show and film called galaxy express 999, this is a amazing show and well worth a watch it about a boy who has a ticket for the galaxy express wihich is a train that travels the galaxy, he is looking to get a robotic body so he can live a rich life and live for 100s of years. the troble is only the weathy can afford the robotic bodys. over 100 eps. i think the game is taken from the film if you need a crisp copy. i cannot wait to play this game guys.

First of all thanks for your work, it looks really fantastic.

Now, I don't know why but the game is pretty unresponsive. Sometimes shooting one or multiple times at an enemy does nothing and you have to restart all again.
