    Thanks HugDD, maybe it will become like the Donkey Kong competition between Wes Copeland and Robbie Lakeman!

    Might be a silly question to those who know this game well but... where are the dip switches? Is this game running at the correct settings?

    Not silly at all. The dip switches are located on the main board inside the machine. The dip switches were at the correct settings. For this particular game the dip switch settings only change the language, number of ships you start with (3 or 4) and free play or number of coins (http://www.arcade-museum.com/dipswit...ings/6939.html). I know it's customary to show the board/dip switches for evidence before or after the game, but sometimes depending on the location, it's just not possible. We can see the starting ships were at 3 (not that it matters in this case) so I hope that is good enough.
    *John McAllister, who broke the record the other day (https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/157539), was approved, without showing the board/dip switches, I hope I am awarded the same courtesy.

    Nicely done and it looks so easy :) 60k per ship that's getting up there. Looks like we both need to work on our focus of the camera as it might hose us one of these days.

    Thanks, John! Just got my first webcam and this was my first attempt recording an arcade game with it. No clue what to do about the focus. I tried using an old camcorder and it would lose focus periodically as well. Very annoying
