I sent my Slapfight to The Guru for dumping/Decapping a few years ago and didn't have a PCB to play it for a while.
Found an Taito Alcon PCB on ebay.com and within a week had scored over two mill with the PCB in my Hankin Deluxe.
Have to get into some practice. ;)

Yes John, many MAME versions don't play the slapfigh ROM, however the bootleg played in all of them. They had the same problem in the last MGL for Slap Fight.
But technically I expect the slapfigh ROM to play the same as the bootleg ROM, it's just the opening titles were changed for different countries.
So all good now. ATTACK >>> :laugh:

It's been a few years since I've played OOO. I'll have to give myself some time to practice. The last boss in a Slapfight needs split second reflexes and timing.
The Slapfight set 1 works in MAME after 0.138u3

http://www.progettoemma.net/?gioco=alcon

after the CPU from my A77 Taito PCB that I had submitted to the Guru was decapped

http://ngemu.com/threads/guru-decapping-update.136338/

Slapfight Set 2 isn't working in MAME as yet as the A76 CPU from the much rarer Toaplan Slapfight PCB I submitted hasn't been decapped yet as we have no one doing chip decapsulation for protection MCUs for the MAMEDEV team at the moment.

I have a Taito Alcon A77 PCB which I waited for almost two years to come up on eBay.com after I sent my Slapfight PCB to The Guru for Decapping. It's genuine, the same game with a different title made for the US market. Can I use that?
I also have a genuine Hankin Deluxe with short shaft MCA joysticks. The buttons are ancient though.
I'll get it cranking on medium and hopefully send in something big.
I also have Tehkan Bombjack PCB in a box somewhere...

Wow - more than I'd be willing to pay for almost any PCB that I can think of (that I like), but yeah I'd want the original and not a bootleg if I was going to get one. I reckon I'd possibly get $250 worth out of it though - I'll wait until I have some funds and might keep an eye out for one, but unless I was going for an actual record, a 60-in-1 would possibly do me just fine :)

The first couple of games I played of this I thought oh no, slow like Tiger Heli, this is going to drive me nuts with slowness. Then I discovered the second button and thought wow, I could get to like this. So my 3rd game ever and I got a score of 60120 and thought I'll have this game sorted in no time... since then.... quite a few games and never looked like beating the score I got in my 3rd game, and I am finding the game frustrating. I hope to be able to play it frustration free and then I think I'd get a better score... I will need to work out what weapons I like too.

I have the same issue.

Back in the day when I was really good at this game and could get scores in the 600-800k range, the weapon of choice in later stages was the laser. I've tried it a few times but I keep getting hammered anyway. It looks to be one of those games where I simply cannot regain my mojo.

Yeah it is pretty well known, dodge and don't shoot for as long as you can and it advances you weapons, distance and score if you are good enough. Down side is you don't get extra men and maybe not as many points.
I think we allowed it last time it is a lazy advance but you also lose something for doing it.

True but you would have 2 more extra men and more points if you played to that score instead.
I don't mind either way, the best scoring method is to play through without the "warp" cheat

From what I found on ChamPOW - TG didn't ever say anything about this on this game, so my 2 cents is that it would probably be alright - well it's fine with me, but I guess everyone have their say (as quickly as possible I guess) and then let OOO make the final ruling. And as you've already pointed out, there is a downside to doing it. Anyway, I haven't tried it - I have enough trouble staying alive when I try to shoot things :lol

If I remember right the TG settings for Slap Fight on MAME (don't remember the Arcade settings) only allowed 1 ship to start. Doing the no fire trick gained you nothing from memory. You died, game over for 0 points so you might as well shoot something.

Edit: For the record my submission did use the no fire method. Figured others would do it as well being a well known thing. Delete it if required.

Use the trick for easy points :) I found you can get up to 240k (well thats as many as I could get)

Brad
30th March 2014, 05:09 PM
Hmm I'm in a quandary. Do I give Slapfight another go or do I continue doing manual binary, hex conversions with ones complement, twos complement, signed magnitude showing all my working out? Given I'd be wasting my time on another Slapfight attempt I'll continue the joys of base number conversions :rolleyes

Doesnt die. Just gotta shoot the hell out of him for max points :). I focused on hitting him instead of the enemies, so died soon thereafter and couldnt recover.

ThX Barra, it's good to know although it won't help me in this comp..I'm done. I remember playing and enjoying Slap Fight in the Arcade, I then picked it up on the C64.
I've seen more of the game playing in this comp which has been great.
I think I will stick with it and try to complete this game on one credit in the future.

There is no end to this game after level 255. That's certain since BITD I went past that level, but whether it resets to 0 or 1 or keeps going 255, 256, 257 etc. I don't remember.
Like most shooters of the period, like Xevious, Terra Cresta, Tiger Heli, Gyrodine etc., after you pass the last section successfully, it repeats mid-way or from the start.
So Slap Fight on medium setting gets harder in faster enemy shot speed and no. of enemies increase in the start section from the 2nd time round.
It could be that the game could end or crash if you achieve over 9,999,990 points, but the levels just keep going ...

Its just about learning the areas and what gun is most useful. I found the homing missiles to be great through most parts until around area ~60 where Id switch to lasers (although I kept dying there, so maybe not a good choice?)

Then don't stop playing the game all because game 7 is over.

You are very close to doing it already.
