    Submission Message
    Submitted score for Atari Tempest, cocktail cabinet, which has all original factory parts to the best of my knowledge.
    Tempest [Points [Marathon, Starting Up To Wave 81 Max]]
    Score recorded 5/3/2017.
    I am the owner of the game, which is located in my home.


    Video #1 is the game play,
    Video #2 shows opening the game cabinet, removing pcb's and a visual scan of the boards, as well as a shot of the monitor showing the high score list once more.


    Main PCB Markings:
    A037383
    Test M Jan 18 1982
    Stamped number: 057238
    serial number (sticker) 21812


    Aux PCB markings:
    A037585
    Stamped number: 051302


    One other detail to include: I had one dipswitch setting that varied from the specified settings: switch 7 on N13 (coin mode dipswitches) is on, which switches the coin mode to free play.
    Free play has no effect on gameplay. I have it set to free play for two reasons, one because it sits in my home, and two, because the coin mech's on my game do not work anymore.
    Note, if there are questions about the acceptability of the free play dipswitch setting, please refer to the discussion thread in my previous (accepted) Tempest score submission (Tempest [Points [Marathon, Starting Up to Wave 9]]): https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/160919
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    There is an error in the entered score for this submission. It is listed at 72 but should be 990133.
    I emailed TG to see if they could correct the entry, but for now please just review and it'll hopefully get corrected soon.

    Submissions are never edited. To get your 990,133 point score adjudicated, you will have to make another submission.

    Hopefully, both your recordings will upload successfully into the next submission's thread. This is one of my favourite games, so I look forward to seeing the recording.

    There is no mechanism for correcting a submission error? That is rather unfortunate. I'm out of submission points to make another submission, so I'll have to earn more before I can submit again.

    If you are going to resubmit, you might double check the video also. Not sure why, if it's still processing or something, but the gameplay video is "unplayable" for me.

    Don't fret sir. Vote on a few submissions. It's easy as Sunday Morning. Scrap together those sub points and have another go.

    Look forward to viewing some Tempest.
