RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Shmups megathread

For discussion of the best game, and other games as well. Wink

Chanku and WSD should know what I'm talking about.
Anyways, a few links before I give the thread over to the others. Questions are openly invited and I'd be happy to answer anything you ask about this wonderful genre.

X.X Game Room -- Good Freeware Shmups

Kaikan -- Another Good Freeware Shmup

The best game

The other best bullet hell on Steam

Anyways, I think that's a good collection of links to start with. If you have anything else or want to request anything then please do let me know. Biggrin

That said Ikaruga is actually a decent game and it has an excellent PC port too.

RE: Shmups megathread

Crimzon Clover is shit

Anyways, just today I found out you could emulate some of CAVE's arcade games in demul, including Daifukkatsu which I've been wanting to play for a long while.
I honestly thought black label was going to be horrible, but it's actually really fun. It's easy to emulate so I recommend anyone try it Biggrin
Now I've just got to try Ibara, Espgaluda II, probably some other stuff.
EDIT: LOL I just realized how old this thread was. So much for megathread you fucking nerd.

Nah, Crimzon Clover is hype, even if it's kinda memo heavy. Anyways yeah, Demul is pretty cool because it lets you run the newer Cave games in an emulator that doesn't suck.
