Saturn Classic Enriched:

The Sega Saturn classic game Radiant Silvergun has been given a significant fan-made update that brings its features closer to modern ports. Developed by Alex “trap15” Marshall, the patch took a year to produce and introduces elements from other versions like a Ikaruga-style chain scoring system for a more streamlined gaming experience.

Features Added:

Additional Enhancements:

In addition to these features, players now have the ability to access the Option+ menu immediately upon starting the game. This update makes the Saturn version of Radiant Silvergun one of the most feature-rich on the market compared to other ports, with one notable exception: it lacks the HD visuals seen in other versions.

Accessing the Patch:

The patch is available for download here, allowing fans to experience these enhancements firsthand and enjoy a more complete version of this Sega classic.

What are your thoughts on fan-made updates like this? Do you think they help in preserving classic games, or do they potentially diminish the original experience for some players?

This is awesome. Radiant Silvergun isn’t my most played shmup to date but it’s definitely so so unique, I really enjoy it.
I certainly think romhacks/patches are a major benefit to older gen titles and I’m somewhat concerned we’ll lose that with newer gens. on 02 Jul 05:57 collapse

This looks great! I have definitely not played enough RSG so maybe I’ll give this a go. I’ve sunk more hours into ikaruga.
