Invincible "dragon" boss
Hello guys!
I can't kill the head of the dragon-boss (sorry can't remember his name) although I certainly shot at least 100 XV-Super-Laser thingy + fully upgraded Hexagon shots on him. He won't die.
Am I allowed to use Caesar's words? :D

This is one of the bosses, who is giving us trouble for all those years. Sometimes it breaks and cannot be killed, but we cannot reproduce the situation on demand, which prevents us to fix it :(. Is it happening to you repeatedly? I just tried it twice and of course it always worked here. If you cannot continue, I'm afraid the Latin is the only option right now.

Oh sorry, you already posted here.
Well I cheated before, to gain older savegame, so I just did it. On easy it worked, this time I was on normal, and it didn't work. Just if that helps somehow :)

If I remember right, he had these problems sometimes, when taking damage too fast - e.g. with massive weapons in later stages.

I had this problem too on my first run through the game. It worked after I killed myself and restarted from the checkpoint.

That's totally the case (if you ask me :3) because I just had the same problem with that MrCxxt guy, you know the boss who comes out the end of a long ship, I had 5 Tsunami Betas (cheated :P) and went instantaneous after him, he lost all his guns in 2 secs, but then he was invincible.
Second time I kinda pressed fire, waited 5 secs, and then fired again, and he got destroyed.

So I guess that's the case dear RakeInGames :)

is it that dragon there comes up from the hole in the ground and shoots fireballs?
first time i reached it on second playthrough, the dragon where broken i noticed!
i could not finnish it off 8% health it has left (used Hexagon if that means anything)

so i pressed restart and this time i could kill it, it was not a huge deal but still a little anoying else besides that the game works flawless for me :)

edit: F... tetris that game is just so evil against me!

What do you even need tetris for?! Does it give you like a special-bonus? idk

I just used Charged Generator and nearly instant killed that Dragon head. Think I just needed 2 direct hits on him to kill him. I might have had 2 of them at once too.

Come on guys, more than 10 years past, the bug still isn't fixed. Any known workarounds? Because that dragon is stuck full Invincible on me and on the first run of steam version, no less. Already did reloading, changing ship, etc, etc... No effect. So, maybe i don't know something, but that bug wasn't so stable back in the days before steam release.:steamfacepalm:

The only clue I can offer is that sometimes the dragon segments seem to run off their "track" instead of following the rest of the dragon. Perhaps one of the segments that must be destroyed is failing to return when the dragon dives below ground? I can't prove that it has anything to do with this particular bug, though.

Also, formations of anything in the game not moving properly happened to me once when my old PC was seriously overworked. (I was running FRAPS at 60fps in 1080p with this at the time.)

There does seem to be some correlation between powerful "piercing" weapons and bosses not taking damage in my experience, but for me it was usually that green flying tank boss at the end of the army base becoming invincible for some reason.

(By "piercing" I mean weapons that can pass through walls and multiple targets, like the VX lasers and Hexagun.)
