I also noticed the lower right corner was cut off by the camera, was there any useful data there?

    All questions aside, accepted.
    Thank you for the thorough review Snowflake.

    Yes, the useful data is there. The screen is really at a weird angle (leans way back) and I have my camera up on a huge tripod. The bezel is in the way of seeing the actual lives. I will correct that before making another submission. So many things to check for a quick game, such a learning experience.

    Here is a screenshot showing you get 3 lives to start.

    I thought I had those covered in the track, but what I did was cover the behaviour, not necessarily the settings. Some people might not have access to the dip switches (fussy arcade owners, multi board, etc.) so they instead they need to show the behaviour of the game they are playing

    Easy accept. Good baseline for this track. Also appreciate the footage/photos of the hardware.

    Why do some adjudications take so long? Normally I don't mind, but this one is important to me as it is the first one from my home arcade.
