After getting back from Engelles, I had to kill the 10 mysterious darkies and now the bunnycop wants me to go to the Deep Undernet.

Can't fucking find it.

Where do I go?

No need to be a smartass, Anon; this game requires a little more than just the usual cursory google.


The creator of the game stopped working on it pretty close to release so some anons from half /jp/ started translating it. Here's the latest build as of March 29th. I think the story is fully completed? but I can't remember.

Styles, Program Advances, and Dark Chips.

Styles are references to some of the other characters and you can have up to 4 (not including default). There are 6 styles and on top of that there are 6 elements, which means you can have 4 of 36 styles saved at a time. Unlocking a new one will ask you if you wanna overwrite one of the old ones ala pokemon moves.

Program Advances use specific combos in the correct order to function. For example: Hakkero 2 (M or *) + Magibomb (M or *) + Marisa v2 = Masterspark

Dark Chips have only the downsides of not allowing you to enter any moods such as full synchro or anger while using it and only being allowed to carry one dark chip in your folder at a time. Shanghai is apparently already evil or something, so the chips don't have an effect on her.

That's the shittiest game in the entire series. Try playing the first three games. 3 is a fan favorite. The first game has an enhanced DS port called Operate Shooting Star.

It plays a lot like Battle Network 6. The MB system was taken straight from there, and some general "philosophies", like the ratio of offensive chips compared to defensive ones, and doing everything in your power to nerf AirHockey, seem to have been borrowed from there as well.

Form changes in this game are called styles, but they have the most in common with crosses, with how many features each style has. Unlike crosses, they aren't immediately cancelled if you are hit with something you are weak to.

The element system is different, too: it has 6 elements, unlike BN's traditional 4 or BN6's 8. And unlike BN6, all elements interact with each other instead of having two completely unrelated elemental circles, so each element is weak to two other elements, and can hit two elements for 2x damage.

Standard chips can have up to 4 letter codes, so there's a lot more freedom for folder building compared to BN4-6, but less than in 2 or 3.

The addon system is very restricted compared to what you could do with navi customizer in BN3 or BN6. It's about the level of BN4-5 in terms of how much variety you can afford at once, even though there are a lot of different addons. The dev had a huge number of addons planned, but some of them, including important stuff like Grimoire and Unshuffle, haven't made it into the last build of the game.

An important feature unique to this game is status effects, which act a lot like bugs in BN games do. Many chips and Doctor style's charge shot can inflict status effects on the enemy, and some of them apply 2x weaknesses that multiply with elemental weaknesses and panel effects. Unlike panels, which stay and apply the weakness bonus for the entire duration of an attack before disappearing, status is cancelled after one hit lands, so they favor single hit attacks. This feature can matter a lot when fighting SP5 navis.

The game also has virus breeding, and unlike BN3, you summon an AI-controlled virus to fight for you. They aren't quite as broken as Scuttle could be in BN3, but you can have any virus in any letter code if you are persistent and/or lucky enough.

well, that sucks, is there plans for /jp/ to finish the game or are they just translating? cause if they are only translating there is not really a reason to play the game if i'm only going to get blue-balled out of a ending.


>Form changes in this game are called styles, but they have the most in common with crosses

cool, though even if i can change then my playstyle probably means i will maybe get shinobi and medic style, and maybe gaia because i like barrier enough for it.

9cbc7d  No.16471383


I believe they're adding content in. Last time I looked at one of their archived threads, they were figuring out how to construct maps. Plus the dev was really far along and left a bunch of stuff in the code. Also, the game is worth playing even without the ending. There's a lot of shit in it, I've got almost 20 hours in it.

You don't get the styles from characters, they just happen to be references. The characters that are referenced in the styles don't actually show up anywhere else in the game, as far as I know.

Also, you can friend chips in different letters than their starting ones. I have a Tankman * chip for example, when his default is a T chip.

The 4chan anon was intent on reconstructing the game's ending. There isn't much left after the demo cuts off. The final boss is already in the game and is functional, but that still means remaking the penultimate boss and the story parts between him and the ending, as well as the ending itself. At least a video of those parts exists.

Better story. Gameplay is a hit or a miss. It's more of an action game than battle network due to only having 3 squares to move on, but in practice you play the same way in both series: Just spam your most powerful chips/cards and combos until you win. No program advances in this game sadly.

Also Starforce 3 has a retarded system where up to 5/6 of your cards become unusable at random and you have to either convert them into a useless support card or wait it out.

The story of each game has strong relations to stories of the previous games so you should probably play the entire thing.

If you truly want the full experience you'll also collect every single battlechip so you can access each game's post-game. This is a massive pain in the ass in the third game because you need a chip from the other version which requires you playing through about 70% of the other game, and a massive pain in the ass in the fourth game because you need to beat the game three times to access the post-game, so no one will blame you if you aren't autistic enough to do this.

You can read up here


Here's my favorite:

At various points, the game tries to detect whether it's running on a copier. Bad things happen if it decides that it is. Each of these is a separate check, so any or all of these may be enabled depending on the specific tests you fail.

Most of the routines that implement these effects have other code that will attempt to detect if the routines have been removed or modified. If this appears to be the case, some effects may occur more quickly, immediately, or under different conditions.

You may lose all your upgrades (including sub-tanks) upon starting a stage.

The 128th time you take damage, the game will start adding random input to yours, and your charged X-Buster shots will be locked in place.

If the code that does this appears to be tampered with, this will occur immediately after picking up health instead.

You may be teleported to the beginning of the level when you pick up a power-up or go through the boss door.

You may have to repeat the introductory stage when an enemy drops an extra life.

After 128 explosions, enemies that repel bullets may kill you when they do. Power-ups will quickly vanish, and shooting while dashing will cause you to have to repeat the introductory stage.

If the code that does this appears to be tampered with, and the code that detects said tampering also appears to be tampered with, this will occur about half of the time as soon as the level starts (alternating between on and off every 128 frames).

After falling down 128 times, the next 127 jumps you make will alternate between normal jumps and small hops instead. You will also take damage while climbing walls and will be unable to use the Ride Armor. Firing shots will teleport you back to the start of the stage.

If the code that does this appears to be tampered with, this may occur after jumping 128 times, jumping a single time, and/or firing a single shot, depending on which parts of the code have been modified.

Most of these checks involve attempting to write to an area of memory typically reserved for SRAM, which real copies of the game don't have, by writing a value to a specific address and seeing if the same value is present at the same address afterward. Normally, on a real cartridge, these addresses point to ROM due to address mirroring, causing the writes to fail. However, the original Japanese 1.0 release suffered from frequent false positives due to the ROM inadvertently having the "expected" values already present at the right addresses in ROM for the copy protection to falsely think that the writes were successful.

Initially, Capcom solved this by physically rewiring Rockman X cartridges to partially disable ROM mirroring at the affected addresses. Later on, the 1.1 ROM was released, with the SRAM detection fixed to prevent similar false positives from occurring.

I keep getting a white outline that disappears as quickly as it shows up when I try to start up the game. Running it as admin or using locale emulator hasn't worked so far.

I dunno. 3 felt like it gave you a lot of ways to handle a situation almost right out of the gate. 4 didn't come close in that regard. I think I shelved it a scenario or two after I was told that Dark Chips were a system not only with zero folder committal, but they also rewarded playing poorly. Does it get better?

Not sure, is there some directX shit or whatever that you're missing?


I suppose it's a difference of priorities. Did they introduce the Synchro system before 4? Battle was quick and snappy which is what I liked about 4 and what I love about Shanghai.exe

I know I got direct x installed, how do I check?

I dunno, I was just throwing something out there. You googled around to see if others had the same problem?

981f54  No.16484628



I got direct x12 so that might not be the case.

I don't even know if this game uses Direct X, I was just throwing general tips out there. What I meant was: have you checked Google for other people who are having the same problem with Shanghai.exe that you are?

From the game's own README file, which you clearly din't even check:

DirectX End-User Runtime


The game uses DirectX 9, which does not come installed by default

on modern computers (Vista onwards)

Microsoft .NET Framework 4


Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5


The .NET Frameworks may already be installed on modern computers.

SlimDX January 2012 End User Runtime


This may not be needed, as a fresh image was able to run without

installing this.

Fuck you, nigger; the game worked for me just fine. I didn't bother looking in it because it wasn't my problem.

But thank you for giving the answer.

I never thought they were important at first so I didn't download them. All I needed was the first and fourth option is all. Thanks for the help anon!

Any reason as to why my save data seems to have been deleted? After I closed the damn game my save got wiped.

Could be any number of reasons, Anon. Did you remember to actually extract the files instead of just playing it from the zip? That sounds retarded, but it's the only thing I can think of. Either that, or you didn't actually select "Save" from the menu. You gotta do that manually.

Is it saving to the right location? You should have a file named "save.she" in your directory.
