    Restoring factory defaults on the arcade version doesn't reset the level order. Only way to do that is to remove and replace the nvram chip or erase the data with a rom writer.

    4.4M is a totally crazy score but I guess, if you can stay alive and marathon the game, then it could go even higher.

    Yea man, I learned to always record my games when I play unless I'm simply limited for time and it's just a one hour practice session.

    I'm going to get back into playing gauntlet and record a score. Back when I did that score I was playing every night when I got the machine.

    I saw that replay on marp.i once did a run of all levels on mame it took a few days getting a couple of hours sleep hoping I'd not died off while away lol.
    Rev 1 is full of food and walls don't turn to exits.

    Yeah lol normal life gets in the way of gaming. I don't think taking long breaks would be allowed on the arcade track. I'd love to try it one day all 999 levels but I think the machine would die first especially after a week.

    So a FIVE DAY MAME replay with no pausing (although he did take breaks).

    It's a miracle that it didn't de-sync :D
