    Good luck on your quest, that's a monster score to chase down, but anything is doable, with enough practice!

    Re: Mario Bros original record

    Heck, I never thought anybody would beat the original WR of 3,481,550 by Perry Rodgers but it happened.

    I can tell you this much about Mario Bros. It's one heck of a great game and probably one of the top 3 (if not the best) 2-player game of all time. Another good thing about it is the different difficulties turns the game into a whole new & different challenge.

    Because of the backwards dip switches on MAME there are now two tracked difficulties (Medium & Hard). Both are such great variations.

    Good Luck and keep me informed of your progress. What is your high score now?

    Stephen, do you know what the gameplay differences are between medium and hard? Was playing one on location recently and it definitely wasn't on easy as the blue fireball came out quite quickly and 2 red fireballs appeared earlier than easy setting, so I was curious if you knew the what changes on the hard setting.

    I used to be VERY familiar with the Hard settings but it's been a few good months since I've played MB's. However, from memory it's just how fast those fireballs start out. It totally changes the patterns between Medium & Hard. Everything else, I believe, are the same speed. I know the blue fireballs start out faster and the red fireball that just moves everywhere starts out faster as well. You have to clear the screen ASAP or it gets totally crazy. Check out my Hard replay on MAME.

    And if you have ever played MB Japan it's even more different and that much more difficult. I should have taken that score to the 3 million mark but it was late at night and I was sleepy and killed the game off. George did the same thing on his game.

    Odd.

    All the Mario Bros. games I've played produced green and orange fire balls. (Not red and blue).
