    Freeplay

    Is a score acceptable if free play is used instead of inserting a quarter?

    It is. I've seen more than one submission being accepted that used freeplay.

    Glad to see this. I was worried because I had a solid run at Mr. Driller but keep all of my games on Freeplay��

    Another thing to keep in mind in favor of Freeplay, with some present day arcades looking to keep their maintenance costs low, more and more of them have been going to an hourly rate and leaving them set to Freeplay

    Yes I'm with George - some games or makes of games are affected by the coinage settings in addition to any gameplay settings. If the game you're playing on is NOT one that is affected by coinage settings, be prepared to cite that but don't hesitate to submit.

    Interesting. What would be an example of a game that is affected by coinage and how does it affect gameplay?

    Things are certainly different compared to the old TG. It used to be totally outlawed.
