    Score Trackhttp://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=206090
    RulesThere are many bootleg boards running in arcade cabinets (unauthorized PCB's, multi kits, 60 in 1, etc.). This track will enable players on ALL of these bootleg boards to submit scores for 1942, regardless of the specific hardware.Rules:1. Game play must be configured as the regular authorized 1942 board. This may involve dip switch settings, it may involve in-game settings accessed via a menu. If you cannot show these settings, you must make it clear during game play that the game is running as follows: - Twin Galaxies Tournament Settings - 3 lives to begin - bonus life @ 20,000 & 80,000 and every 80,000 thereafter - Normal Difficulty - Single Player ONLY variation - No continues2. A full description of the bootleg board must be included along with a clean image of said board. This will allow us to identify and track the various versions and compare the variances in each game's play.3. Video of the cabinet and game play must be submitted, including a clear shot of the final score.
    Submission MessageHere is my first attempt at the 1942 Bootleg PCB track. I have a Korean made 1942 running in an old scramble cabinet. I have attached two videos.

    One video is a walkthrough of the PCB, showing the dip switches and the game running live.

    The second video is my scoring attempt: 204,010

    I am including a couple of high res photos to help with the adjudication and for historical / documentation purposes.

    I really hope to get some traction with this track. I was pleased that my bootleg had the same dip switch settings as the original. Not so sure about the 60-in-1 boards. I think they are buggy, but I welcome the competition and discussion.

    I'm not even close to an expert, only played 1942 3x in my life at a pizza parlor. I did hear the sound indicating new lives at the right scores. I also counted deaths, and you died 6x which is correct for 3 starting lives +3 bonus lives. Everything seems to check out. I have to ask though, was there some way to say total lives on screen? I also noticed the lower right corner was cut off by the camera, was there any useful data there?

    All questions aside, accepted.
