    Points [Tournament Settings]
    Score Track
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=9802
    Rules
    Dip-Switch Bank 6J:
    1 = OFF
    2 = ON
    3-6 = OFF
    7 = OFF/UNUSED
    8 = OFF

    Dip-Switch Bank 6K:
    1-3 = OFF
    4-6 = ON
    7-8 = OFF

    Rapid Fire P.C. Board:
    Position B: Normal

    Note: The above Dip Switches are the correct Twin Galaxies Tournament Settings for this title and will provide the following settings;
    5 Lives
    Extra Ships: None
    Difficulty: Rank D

    Special Rules: Attempts for this variation may be done on Marathon Settings, but once you've lost your 4th Life, you may not allow your ship to be captured or your Tournament Score attempt ends immediately. Useage of the trick to cause enemies to stop firing is banned. It has been deemed permissible for a player to intentionally play on the player 2 side so as to allow the millions-digit to show up in the final score.

    Special Note: There are some Midway boardsets where Dip-Switch Bank 6J: has Dips 1 and 2 in Reverse to get Rank D and 5 Lives. Adjustments to these 2 Dips can be made accordingly to establish the settings correctly.

    6K: 1-3 OFF, 4-6 ON, 7-8 OFF

    As in there is no name in the title of the submission - that looks more like a TG issue than anything else.

    GG Mike. So close to Armando's huge score.

    No name in the submission. Shows on the scoreboard however...


    Congrats on an outstanding score Mike! Your play is incredibly consistent, you're scoring at 13,700+ per stage which is an outrageous average for a game this long!! Shows in your hit/miss % too....

    I'm sure you can topple Armando's score soon. Will be great to see how high you guys push it!
