The only one cartridge I got is SALAMANDER it naked, without any other item.

I wonder for what the E (energy) is for?, why sometimes it says PLAYER X is captured if he is fine?.

I finds this game a lot harder than by example Parodious. And it is incredible that it is MSX1!!!!, how the hell they gets so many action going on at the same time!, it is all TILED?.

In the dual play, why if I got 2 side-aircraft , I blocks to the other player to get the side-aircraft (well they looks like a flashing-egg).

Snatcher? It sounds like you mean Salamander?

Salamander’s a great game, I played the two-player mode a lot with friends :). Though we never got far. I think the reason why it blocks the options in 2-player mode is because it simply can’t show more on screen without slowing down.

PassionMSX has the manual.

about this theory, why not?, I get 3 side-aircrafts, but the other player nothing. Then we though, ok, I will get only two, and you can get atleast one, and it blocked to get that one, quite weird, because it waste the powerups and gets nothing.

Game uses a combination of tile and sprite enemies! E unlocks weapon upgrades like HAWK WIND and METEO each time you get 15 of them. I don’t know about the player captured message.

HAWK WIND and METEO? I never saw those weapons and I grab more than 15 E several times, it rolls back to zero, again and again. Is needed to activate those weapons?

If I look at this video, red player gets two options and the blue one (at 3:25). So it should be possible. Maybe try to get the options for the red ship first? It could be peculiar like that.

Yeah. Check the first video, it unlocks hawk wind at 3:53 and activates it at 4:06.

About the options: If you get 3, the other player can't get any more options. Even if you die and lose your options, the other player will still not be able to get options. (it's a sort of bug). if the options upgrade box is cancelled out, the only way to clear that is by dying. :/

When player 1 has collected 15 'E' you get the message: "Player 1 captured HAWKWIND"
It doesn't mean the player is captured himself Wink

By collection E you can 'capture' the following weapons:
HAWKWIND (upgrade from missile, missiles that can climb terrain)
METEO (upgrade from laser, wider laser, and the only weapon that can shoot the barricades on planet Eioneus)
SCREW (upgrade from meteo, really wide laser)
HOMING (upgrade from hawkwind, missiles that fly directly to enemies, but kinda glitchy!)
TWIN LASER (2P combine weapon, difficult to activate -> merge ships with item, then upgrade from laser)
TRIPLE LASER (2P combine weapon, even more difficult -> merge ships with item, then upgrade from twin laser)
ARMING BALL (2P combine weapon, merge ships with item, then upgrade from ripple laser, shoots 'balls' in any direction you want)

Never use ARMING BALL though, it's extremely glitchy, and because of the limited time you can use it, it's not worth the powerups Smile

imho, Nemesis 2 had far better powerups with up-laser and napalm missiles Smile Running Naked in a Field of Flowers
