- Add your original barrage patterns.

You can add your own barrage patterns to Noiz2sa.
In the 'noiz2sa' directory, there are 3 directories named
'zako', 'middle' and 'boss'.
In these directories, the barrage pattern files are placed.

The barrage pattern files are written by BulletML.
About BulletML, see the page:

A 'zako' directory is for the small enemies.
A 'middle' directory is for the middle class enemies.
A 'boss' directory is for the boss type enemies.

You should adjust the difficulty of the barrage
by using a $rank variable properly.
A $rank variable is used to control the difficulty
of each scene in Noiz2sa.
