        Wow, the slow down on this game when you have a heap of powerups is massive. I really liked the first Gradius/Nemesis but this one is not good.

          Had a few games last night and agree, that second level was insane!

              Which version are we playing? It appears the romset names were changed at some point. In 106, gradius3 is the Japan version, but in more recent versions, it appears to be the World version.

                Older MAME gradius3.zip is the Japan version, I was playing the gradius3e.zip, your post made me check.

                Cheers, I hope it is easier than what I playing the other day!

                  OK, comparing the world version with the Japan version, it appears the Japan version has Japanese text over the III in the Gradius III logo, and even though he's got the dipswitch settings over top of that, you can see the text over the III. The world version doesn't have any text over the III, so I guess this one is supposed to be the Japan version.

                    Thats what I am guessing [MENTION=9067]OOO[/MENTION] might want to clarify?

                    Also the Japan version lets you select an easier version at the start, so are we allowed to play that one? After some research it only gives
                    you three stages then loops.

                      Japan version if you have it and do not pick the beginner stage with only 3 levels ...
                      When you press start, the default selection on the left is to be taken ...

                        Ah crap, I had the japan version in the first place & replaced it with world ver. That means I'll have to play this again ...

                        Control of the ship is awful & collision detection is weird, are there even any good powerups ? I got the double but it was more like half

                          This would have to be my least favourite game that I have played in any MGL yet. I have played a couple of games and don't know if I can even make myself go back.
