    Submission MessageThis was played on the floor of Galloping Ghost Arcade today (1/11/2018). I had a break through game, stuck at around 600-650k for awhile before this. Extra life settings are verifiable by the attract screen (1st @ 10k, then every 50k up to 1 million).

    Only 1 run in my videos, they were split into 3 parts by my camera so hopefully they upload OK.

    53 stages cleared, final score:



    Thanks for taking a look and adjudicating! :)

    Hey Han,
    All the settings that we could verify by game play which were # of men, and score at which you get an extra are there, but what about the difficulty settings. Games that have difficulty settings need to show some evidence as to what they were set at and your missing that part. Either need to show through test screen or the dips on the board. I don't know enough about the game play to be able to say what settings they are on. If you could get someone that is in the know and would be able to explain it so that we can verify it through the game play, that would be good.

    I'll abstain till you have a reply

    The difficulty only has 2 modes available, either normal or hard - there is no easy settings, as verified by dips here:
    https://www.arcade-museum.com/manual...n%20%20DIP.pdf

    I've never seen hard settings on this game, but the arcade has settings listed on Aurcade which are the same as the track rules here on TG.

    I'll try running it in Mame sometime soon to see if there are any noticeable differences between the 2 difficulties.

    In case you missed it, the video linked above details a very easy way to tell the difficulty settings. Color of the text of "insert coin" is pink/purple for hard difficulty, and shows up yellow for normal difficulty.

    I'm trying to embed that video here, apologies if it doesn't show up properly:

    Incredible score on a game I suck at.
    You were almost calm, that's how confident you are. You can tell by the velocity of your button presses :)
    Sublime run. Accepted beyond acceptability.
