So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Thunder Force III level intros

Thunder Force III's level intro code is still present in the game, with entry point at $3758. (A branch immediately prior jumps around it.) The artwork is not present, so using MAME's debugger to jump into this (bp 0x3754, then at the breakpoint, pc=0x3758; go) will show garbage for a few seconds before continuing. The strings for the level intros and associated code are also present, but do not draw for some reason (the function doesn't appear to be called, showing that the screen was edited somewhat?)

Hmmm...
To do:
Investigate this further...
