The dip switch 6&7 settings will producte difficulty 2 - Normal (on arcade) which matches up with difficulty 2 - Medium (on MAME); they are the same difficulty (arcade & mame) they are just named differently in the arcade manual and mame. In the arcade manual difficulty 2 is called normal, in mame difficulty 2 is called medium; they are both the same difficulty setting #2 out of 4.

    With all due respect, fully adjudicating a 50-hour submission will have to be, for most people, spread out over a week or two, especially if the adjudicator is working full time or has a family with kids to tend to. I hope that all submitters of ultra marathons realize that getting a submission accepted will likely take some time as we would have to parse it out over multiple days and/or nights. Wow, 50 million, who woulda thunk it ?

    I agree RTM, Since this will be a time consuming score to adjudicate, I would expect this submission (once uploaded) to not be closed for some time. Please disregard and down vote this submission until can properly upload the file. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks...looking forward to the upload. I look forward to watching it :)

    BTW, on the Sony PS1 (Konami Classics) rendition I found it easier to play on max difficulty as the enemies were more predictable and jumped at you as soon as you were in line of sight...ever try this ?
