I can see this one taking a while to master, so much stuff going on.
There are things hidden in the background and ships flying onto the screen from below that can crash into you.

Hmmm, for the .ADF shouldn't you be using ross's fixed version? Ziriax 100% (Ultimate Edition)

All TOSEC .ADFs are faulty and the one you linked to on PlanetEmu is actually this once run through ClrMAMEPro dats:

Ziriax (1990)(Software Business)[cr TT][t +2 FLT][b corrupt files].adf

...ross's version is now back in The Zone! for you anyway.

Which unfortunately is not available on whdownload.com. Can you provide a link to a complete v1.2 version (not just the install)?

Just a reminder that score leeching - which is pretty easy against this game's bosses - is forbidden.

I will be surprised if anyone get's on to level 3!
I had a look further on level 2 using some continues and it gets stupid.

Nice 50fps eye candy, but very claustrophobic and difficult. You'd have to be Japanese to beat this. Or French.

This one feels similar to Apidya in that losing a life is a death sentence because your power ups are gone. Level 2 is easier with missiles + rear shot + double shot but once they're gone I'm toast.

I like the art style and music.

I think we can cross off the French word in your sentence
That said, I managed to go to level 3 but with credits.
(it's funny there are two big boss in the level2)
It looks like even harder than level two

I don't know if we can complete this game but it offers a good challenge for sure.

Yup, nice to have a real tough one.

Nice and smooth though, runs silky for a relatively early game.

No problem

@john4p; in order to avoid this issue going forward, when it comes to the .ADFs you should either use:

a) ones from GameBase Amiga (which you will find on the EAB File Server)
b) ones from my collection.

For those interested I uploaded to The Zone! a full package containing a WHDLoad v1.3b slave and disk of Ziriax 100%.
This is only a beta slave but reported by testers as working in every real config, also on 060/66Mhz.
