    " THE END " by Stern

    Hello friends
    Some questions about "THE END" by Stern
    I play the MAME version (ROMset : theends) and I noticed some differences compared to the arcade version.
    On the arcade version there are the first second and third attacks, then there's the 4th attack in it there's "chance time" at the end of which you shoot the mother ship and all the remaining bricks are subtracted from the word "END" and then there is a final attack and if you survive that then you start a clean slate with increasing difficulty. In the MAME version there are first,second and third attacks and a chance time BUT at the end of it there is no mother ship to shoot at and no bricks subtracted. instead there is "last attack" followed by another and so on and it's frustrating because the end is so near..
    Is there a ROM set that emulates the arcade version more accurately?
    and another thing - in the 'input this game' menu you have a player 1 button 1 (fire button) AND player 1 button 2 which does nothing!
    Any idea what is it for ?
    Cheers
    Doron

    Omega is the same as the arcade version. That version of the game is the best.

    Thanks John
    It's nice to get a reply from the world champion of "THE END" himself !


    I've tried to play the Omega version before and although its gameplay is similar , there are some issues that I do not like about it :


    1. There are different sound effects altogether
    2. The charging fanfare at the beginning is missing
    3. After the first death there is a horrible continuous sound
    probably a bug
    4.The game spells FIN (French for end) rather than END
    etc


    Thanks anyway John but I think there isn't a true emulation of this gem of a game.
    Cheers
