    The INP is there Jared. That little square. Does it not work for you?
    I'll add it again.

    Ok, judgment time for the community - the "Bonus Life" DIP is set incorrectly (should be 40k and every 80k):

    However, for this particular submission, the score for which the second bonus life would have been awarded using the correct settings (120k) was reached before using the last life...this means the incorrect settings didn't result in a bonus life that was used before it would have been earned with the correct settings. I tend to lean toward the "correct settings must always be used" camp, but also favor leniency where it makes sense.

    What say you adjudicators?

    It's only a low score, and the dips made no difference to the score, nor extra lives. I'm not good enough to get that far !

    Couple of ways to look at this. All is good if he had it on either of the settings as he didn't reach any threshold of extra lives that he wouldn't have reached on the other setting. It would have been way to much to think about if he would have gotten a big score and all sorts of calculations had to be done then I would vote no. But then at what point is the cut off.

    Games that have only 1 extra life are really easy to figure out if it's valid or not. When you get into games that have multiple extras and calculations and detailed review of the game have to be taken into account then I would vote no. To keep things even easier I would say that any game that gives multiple extras and the setting for when you get the extras is set wrong should not be accepted. There can be the argument he only got 2 extra lives and we can easily calculate that it had no affect on the outcome of the game. Let's say he got 5 extra ships and all sorts of calculations had to be done and we had to truncate the score because he would have ran out of ships at this point and blah blah blah.


    With the above stated I'm going to vote reject.
