Glitched Achieves?

I kinda feel like I'm talking to myself over here but oh well. For some reason the getting both endings and clearing the game with all characters with no continues achieves won't pop for me. Anybody else? Any word on a patch?

Yeah, a patch is coming in Mid June that fixes alot of things, the glitched/buggy 6billion achievement included.

I thought I should have unlocked the Get All Endings achievement myself, I'm going to playthrough the game with each character twice again just to be sure, but I doubt that one is glitched. Probably just an oversight on my part.

The 70G achievement for 1CCing the game with every character popped no problem for me and I haven't heard of anyone complaining about it thus far.

I have a touch of OCD and I went so far as to write down my progress on these achieves so I know I completed 'em. The one for clearing without continuing with all I did on lvl 1 with most and never did the EX map. Would this make a difference?

The Achievements have been unlocking fine for me, but you guys may be interested in this...

Currently, "GAME SETTING" has a known glitch. If you select "DEFAULT SETTING" item in its menu, some of the progress for cumulative achievements are reset to the start. So, do not select "DEFAULT SETTING"

Interesting that clicking default re sets the cumulative ones. I'm sure I have pressed it a few times.
One I don't seem to be able to unlock is the 6 bombs and a full magic bar in arrange. I have done it loads of times but it never unlocks. Do other people have this one unlocked?

I don't know if the patch is meant to "fix" this but the game is just stupid easy now. You can change the settings to the easiest possibe config. and go to town. I got the 100pt achieve for doing all maps including EX on lvl 3 no CC on my first try. I already had the one for no CC no lvl 1 but I had to work hard to get it. Now a monkey or even a PS3 fanboy could do it.

I have no idea how you got it on your First Try I still can't get this achievement! Doing 6 castle levels on lvl3, hell the last boss takes damn near 20mins to kill him, and crazy amounts of things flying at you!

Use Follett, shes the most powerful character in the game and mows through everything quickly.

Its all 6. The problem is when you play all the levels on 3 Satan Claws gets a lot harder.
What I tend to do is tackle the levels I find hardest first. So for me its the vertical snake level (lots of points in this one so easy extend) Followed by the mansion with the tall fella second. The others are easy if you learn the boss patterns. Then its just the horrible rabbit and bear who can be tricky.
For Satan Claws its best to bomb the hell out of him whilst he is in his first smaller form. Once he gets bigger he is pretty easy. Especially if you are in power up mode.
Good luck.

Wait, wait, wait!!!!!! YOU CAN ADJUST THE GAME SETTINGs AND STILL GET ALL THE ACHIEVEMENTS!!!!!!!! This means that you can set your bombs to 5, your lives to 5, enemy and enemy bomb damage to you both to ZERO! You can get hit literally 6 times before you lose one life!! My math may suck but even without getting a free life(which you will) you can get hit 30 times and use 25 bombs without continuing. I made it to satan claws using Follett with more than three lives and 12 bombs and I SUCK!!!!

When the counter on the bottom left reaches 1000 you can press x and this will put you into powerup mode, along with changing every bullet on screen to yummy rings. All bullets also disappear when you leave super mode. This can be a life-saver and also kill harder enemys much, much faster. Have you been using this?

There are some good guides on SHMUPS and Cave-STG on how to play the game properly. If you play all on level 1 it should be very easy to get to the end and finish of Satan claws.
I can get to him with everything on level 3 including the EX stage. I still have not to beat him in a single credit all on level 3 though. Normally because I make silly mistakes early on.

If you simply want to get to the end don't play for score. Just stay alive!
I find it hard not to play for score though. Which means point blanking to build both meters to max, initiating power up mode and holding lock down to spawn the yellow sperm bullets. Cancel them into rings, shoot things a lot to spawn the blue sharp bullets, herd them into a line and then cancel them with lock and hold for more yellow sperms. This is pretty much the process for the most of the game. There are boss milking techniques too but at the moment I don't really bother with them.

I am liking this game more and more. Its still not as good as the first one but I am having a lot of fun with it.

He's right! Set lives to max and bombs. Set bullet and enemy damage (from bumping into them) to 0 and you have what equates to about 40 lives. And after two easy extends its even more.
I just had a go and tried to get the die on Pigeon Blood Jitterbug achievement but I had so much life left he timed out and died lol.

Thats very odd! I have not heard of this one being bugged.
To fight him you have to do the following.
Use lock shot to finish off every boss.
Be careful using anyone who shoots a familiar shot that stays on screen for too long. Probably easiest with Follet.
You cant use any continues.
Make sure to finish Satan Claws last form with lock shot too.
You will know it has worked as a large cake will pop out of him when he dies.
A short cut-scene later and you will fight Pigeon Blood Jitterbug (I has hoping for some blood or a pigeon )
The level you select for each stage does not matter.

Ok I'm stupid - how do you use the lock shot? And is this all done in II X mode? The guy above you said he did it Arrange mode.

yes I did it on arrange mode and I didn't used lock shot on all bosses (if I remember), but it was for sure Pigeon Blood Jitterbug cause his name showed up before fighting.
Maybe it only works in IIX mode

ok just got it along with 100 pointer, defeated all bosses with lockshot (get health of the boss very low, get counter to 1000, press X and hold it on the boss until he dies).
You'll know if you habe beaten all bosses with lockshot if the santa releases a big cake.

I've trouble getting some other achievements, like:
  • ご褒美 (10)
    Get the Shortcake, IIX Mode only
  • 世界の平和は私が守る! (20)
    Cancel a total of 100,000 bullets using your shot or throwing your familiar, any rank levell
  • フルパワーを見せ付けろ (20)
    Stay in Power-up mode for over 60 seconds, any rank level
  • ハイテンション (20)
    Stay in Fever mode for over 60 seconds, any rank level
  • 魔法使い (5)
    Collect a Magic Item (a.k.a. - a bomb)
I have the 60 sec. Fever Mode achievement but what is the difference between Fever Mode and Power Up Mode?

is this achievement glitched also?
連射王に私はなる!! IIXモードで、ショットのみでゲームをクリアーした。(ボムは可) 20
In X-Mode, beat the game only using the Shot (you can also use bombs & the lock-shot. You just can NOT use the laser)

Are you guys not using an arcade stick then? You can press A and B but not hold them down. Default arcade controls should be just 3 buttons.
You can use lock and bomb for the shot achievement. Just don't hold down the buttons for laser at all.
If you don't use lock shot then you can't really score. Watch some replays to see how to play. You need to use it to turn the blue bullets into rings and to spawn yellow sperm bullets.

You can meet Bloody jitterbug in X or Arrange. Not sure about what you need to do to meet him in Arrange. I assume its the same but you use throw rather than lock as there is no lock in Arrange.

For the bullet cancel and power up mode achievements you just need to play Arrange properly. Use throw to spawn sculls and then collect the cross bullets with your familiar. This recharges the power up counter so you can stay in power up mode for at least 60 seconds. If you watch some replays you will see that most players don't really come out of power up whilst playing Arrange.
Replays are the best way to learn the finer points of the game.
I have a few top 100 scores for some characters but what the top Japanese players do is crazy!

EDIT: the small cake be found in the mansion, after the chandeliers there are 2 knights, the 1st apper from the right and the 2nd from the left (that doesnt appear if you play at level 1). kill the 2nd one with lock shot to get the small cake.
i got the achievement for it only after the update.

does anyone know how and where can get the bomb?

Patch is out today. Fixed the bright white in arcade mode. Added arcade leaderboard but no replays which is a shame. Bug that gave some players billions of extra points at the end of the game us fine.
Score 6 billion achievement has been fixed. Just got 1000 for this game.
