Title: ## DARIUSBURST EX : My Chronicle ## (road trip/new website inside!)

This is it, guys! After patiently waiting three interminable months, THE cabinet is finally arrived right away from Japan by container, to the seller's place in the Netherlands. The time has come for me to bring back that Japanese lady from Netherlands into my game room in Belgium. Oh, should I really have to name it? I'm sure you all know what game I'm talking about... DARIUSBURST EX / AN OTHER CHRONICLE!

Back in 2011, I had a crush on that cabinet/game after seeing many videos of the game play, reading so many positive reviews ... and technically, what a piece of hardware : double 16/9 screen 'a la Galaxian Theater', massive bass speaker inside the seat, 4 players... and a cabinet shape that kills everything around! At last, something 'modern' and really exciting is catching my interest! ...oh, and of course... its name : DARIUS !!! What a license! Taito, by this game, truly made a beautiful tribute to the Darius franchise by creating this new iteration of the game : deep game play, various modes, scoring & competitive playing, biggest 'end of level boss sprites' ever seen in a video game, hypnotic soundtrack (by Zuntata) & awesome sound effects, this modern shoot'em up has everything I love! :-*

I eventually had the opportunity to try it for the very first time during the Eurocade in September 2014, and as expected, it was love at first sight game! I also had to opportunity to buy that one during Eurocade, but it wasn't the right time for me.

And later, I got the opportunity to buy an other one, following an offer I couldn't resist. Deal done.
We are in September 2014... and all I've to do is to wait that beast to be imported from Japan by the seller.

It's now December 2014... it's Christmas time, and ... my long awaited gift has arrived!

NOW GO TO :

WWW.DARIUSBURST.COM (http://WWW.DARIUSBURST.COM)


(more to come of course)

I thought you said you bought the one at EC14.

Not my kind of game, but if i leave my personal opinion out of the question, its a bad ass cabinet !

Have tried it at EC14 but like all those modern shooters, its too busy for me  ;D

I do have to agree with SuperUlly, the reading is difficult with the background, maybe change the color of the text on that page ?

By the way, i love Frikandellen !  :D

Bruno, check this Japanese site out:

Thanks guys  :)

Regarding the dedicated DariusburstEX website, I've used a template(initially done for an other purpose) done by a friend. It has be created in CSS / PHP. I've never worked with these languages so far!

So during these 4 last days (more than 12 hours per day :oops:), I had to learn these languages enough to :
- 'reverse engineering' the job done by my friend to understand how CSS & PHP work
- get enough knowledge of css & php languages to do something nice (I hope it is)
- figure out how to modify / tune the code to create what I have in my mind for this dedicated DariusburstEX website
- create all the graphic chart, taking pictures, photoshop...
- all these domain names, servers, host, url forward, dns, registars and other boring stuff...
- to write the road trip report

So there are still few bugs in the website, but I wanted to publish the road trip asap!   :)
I will correct them in the coming days, be indulgent  ;)

I can't tell you how I'm happy with this game. This time it's not a matter of 'collecting' a game, it's not a matter of restoring a game... it's a matter of PLAYING a game! And it's been a long time a new arcade game didn't catch my interest so strong!

http://gentukiban.nobody.jp/dariusac.html

Great link Oliver!  8) I've found my cabinet in its original location in Japan, thanks to the serial number! ;D  It was located at the Plaza Capcom (http://www.capcom.co.jp/amusement/shopdata/aomori/shopdata_kashimura.html)  :arrow:

Note that the seat on mine is the fully 'skinned 'DBACEX red one'.

Did you have the English manual by the way? Or the English description of the service mode menu? I'm trying to reset the high score for example...

I have a PDF of the English manual. It isn't very good though..

I am trying to find the original toppers. They seem to all be lost!

Wow - How big is your game room, Bruno???

The one in Casino (arcade) didn't have the tall bit on the seat as far as I rememeber.  I think it went off to the Middle East when it was sold...

How big is your game room, Bruno???

3 rooms for a total of 140m2, external dimension, so a little bit less inside... but definitely enough for that new monster  ;)

Did either of you guys get the big Pop card on top of the cab?

Not for me  :-\... but yeah, that sign would be awesome on the top of the game. Maybe finding the file and print it ourself?

cool that there's another serious alien to blast in the Lair!

THIS. IS. INSANE.
I see that you bought it at Rklok storage hall, I already went there once to buy my Blast City, this guy really has cool machines, and puts nice bonus in his containers to fill the empty space.
When I saw that you bought it in Netherlands, I thought it was the one I had the chance to try when I went to the Psykick's storage place, where I bought another cab too. He lives near Rotterdam, and has a reaaaaally cool collection of cabs (owned by him and two friends), this was the first (and only) time that I could try this cab, and it made me a very strong impression, the sound, graphics and general experience were really a great moment in my gamer's life. This reminds me that I still have to relate this roadtrip  ;)
By the way, great buy Bruno, as always!

So,  corrected that.   :)  By the way,  that arcade is 'owned'  by a team of 5 people.  The Darius Burst that you saw there belongs to jinxz,  forum member,  and is for sale.

2800e is a great price is it not? I paid 3200e for mine shipped. 1800e would be a steal.


Title: Re: ## DARIUSBURST EX : My Chronicle ## (road trip/new website inside!)
Post by: ckong on December 26, 2014, 09:03:10 PM
About 2300 is a price mentioned more than once by a few sellers some months ago,  about 1800 was a recent opportunity.

Congrats og the game Bruno!
Isent there any chance you could log on the the TAITO network, perhaps call them/write them? You bought the game fair and square, I imagine they would be quite thrilled to hear the game was operated in a private owned arcade.

I'm not sure, but as far as I understand it, the TAITO Nesys network is a private network that require a specific hardware to be connected, see  :arrow:

(http://www.dariusburstex.com/safety/nesis_taito.jpg)

Not sure this system could 'technically' work outside Japan, but also being connected to Taito should most probably require fees to pay to Taito. I doubt this 'versions update/online gaming option' service is provided free by Taito...  :-\

Ok, but in order to have the latest version on the game, they must have had that "modem" on place where you bought the game?? Cant they sent it to you?

I don't think they are owner of that 'connectivity stuff'. It's more like TAITO equipment rented by the game room operator, under a maintenance contract. And I bet that connectivity hardware can be used for other Taito games...

Yes, you're right, thanks for the correction. I had the opportunity to meet two of them, very nice people, whose first words were "take your time, you can play whatever game you want. Do you want a coffee?"   :-*
Damn, you should not have told me that they were selling it, I don't have place or money left, I really should build a bigger gameroom, but I am sure there is no gameroom big enough for us, it's just a question of time to fullfill them  ;D

Good job on buying the cab Bruno.
I just feel a bit disappointed for letting you play on my cab for 2 days, answering any question, being open and honest about everything after you asked me about selling it and than being fully ignored on PM. Didn't expect that from you  ???
Not pissed, just disappointed. But in the end I'm happy to still be able to share my cab with the community because people LOVE to play this awesome game;)

Just a shame that you missed out on the fact that mine had the pop card (took a pic this morning):

No worries.

If you wanna give the game a spin you can always visit Bruno. Or Nozomi on the 17th of January when they open the arcade to have a news years party for community members. My DBAC is there for unlimited replay  :D

Just to clarify : at the end of EC2014, I clearly told you I didn't plan to buy you the game because few reasons (space, price and not sure to appreciate a such modern game at home after all). But I didn't ask you to hold the game for me or whatever. I didn't think about buying this game … until I eventually had an offer I can't refuse.  :)
Sorry If I missed to reply a message, got a ton of requests from everywhere that I'm often 'overloaded' and forgot to reply on some  :oops: (OK, just found it, just one where you told me "it was great to meet us @ EC14 and asked me if I made room for DB". Honestly not replying that unique PM cannot be called "being fully ignored on PM").


Damn, that sign looks great  :-*  :arrow:

Strange, I've tested it on my iPad2 with no issue...and the site is 'especially tuned' for mobile device by the way. Which iPad version do you have?

It doesn't crash my iPad but the website does keep reloading all the time making it totally impossible to read.

To be more precise: the main page and the two right options work fine. However the left two pages open OK, but as soon as you start scrolling down the page will give a "page reloaded because of a problem" error and the page goes blank. Then it will open it again with the first pictures of that page and then the problem repeats when you scroll down. This happens at about the third picture.

Thanks for these precisions André, but I cannot reproduce the problem on the 2 iPad I own (mini +iPad2). What is your OS version?
I'll talk next week with 'the specialist' who helped me to setup this css/php website in order to fix it.

Oh, and while I'm here, did I already said this game is absolutely phenomenal!!!  :-* :-* :-* I can't stop playing it everyday!!!
Can't wait you guys come here & play on it!  :)

IOS 8.1.2 (like mentioned ;) )

I have an iPad 3 and I just also tried it on my son's iPad 4 (was still on 8.1) and it shows the same behaviour.

The attract mode instruction are in English, only the initial game selection menus are in Japanese and also the operator menu. Nothing important at all...
The export version (full English) may be available in few months.
I like Japanese in these modern shooters... it's a part of the charm!  :) I'll stay with that language version for sure  :-*

shooters are solo challenging games. 1 credit, one run : die and retry.

I hope to try that darius very soon !  ;D

Agree!  :)

Agree!  :)


It's true it can be confusing when 4 'casual modern shooter' players are on the game. In that case it's more a fun competition for scoring! (like Galaxian3), and you don't really have time to really enjoy the beauty of the graphics, the effects, and the WONDERFUL Zuntata musics tracks  :-* In this scenario you really don't care about the use of the credits to finish the levels...
When more 'experimented' players are on, it's time for cooperative strategies... especially because the different ships you can select are different in the use of the key weapon of the game : the use of the BURST! It's like Gauntlet... several characters with their own specific characteristics. 

When played alone (which is my case 95% of the time), it's an incredible experience. Learning patterns, elaborate strategies to defeat bosses, finish the level with one credit, scoring... and enjoy the beauty of this game!  :-*
Now that the Chronicle mode is unlocked, it's more than an arcade game, it's now a game with HUNDREDS of levels!!!
This DariusBurst EX is the best experience I ever had on 'modern' arcade game! I strongly recommend this cabinet! TAITO RULEZ!  :-*

They have a special event going on for Darius Burst EX at Taito HEY in Akihabara, Tokyo, with the whole set of the Darius series along with some EX's.

The Taito HEY is the building on the left of the far Sega arcade that has the Darius Burst billboard all the way down...

Egrets all dedicated to shmups. They had the rest of the Darius series in these along with famous shmups from the 80's onwards:

Hope this is true! If so everyone will have a chance to experience the game, and it may have console exclusive footage...  :P

this would be a great game for a collectors edition with a ship model for example.
since the game has a limited audience anway i am pretty sure many people would love to spend money for a true collectors item.
a digital download feels worthless to me, not only because i am selling physical media. everything about my hobby is missing here except the game. but even with the game i am in the hands of the publisher. i own nothing... i only have the right to play it.

Definitively not a rumor anymore  :arrow:  Debut Trailer for Darius Burst: Chronicle Saviours Revealed (watch the trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRCchsKmQBk)).

Chara-Ani and Pyramid have released the debut trailer for Darius Burst: Chronicle Saviours at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
The recently confirmed shoot-em-up game is coming to PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC in Japan as a download-only title.
While Darius Burst: Chronicle Saviours is releasing by the end of this year, only the PS Vita version is getting a physical retail edition.

I wonder, how cool would it be to play this game, and other SHMUP's, in a FP VR view? Could be awesome, dodging those bullets, submerged in a space war!

Available since today on the playstation €uro store! Just too bad there's no physical release for PS4...anyway, I had to get it too, I wanna discover that dedicated 'Chronicle Saviours' specific to that home release version, even if it looks (at first sight ) very similar than the original 'Chronicle Mode' from the arcade version...
