    Great job!

    Nice little game that I see for the first time.
    I have tried to play it today but for some reason I can't get the settings quite right:
    I'm supposed to set the DIPs like so: Difficulty: Easy,Extended Play: Yes (4000 points) but the extended play occurs at 3000 points!
    BUT when I change the difficulty to hard THEN and only then the extended play occurs at 4000 as demanded by the rules.
    So what am I supposed to do?
    Btw I use MAME 181

    Submission ACCEPTED (after the MAME analysis will arrive)
    Cheers!

    HI Doran, i'm using 183 and it looks like i have the same problem. The "extended play" can be set to "Yes", but there is no dip setting to change the "3000" to "4000", the game automatically changes this for you whenever you choose between "easy" or "hard" . The only thing i notice is that "X2 points" kicks in at 4000 points on "easy" .

    Also apart from making a different "beeping" noise at 3000/4000 extend i cannot see any reason for this setting. You do not receive any sort of "time extend" or "extra life".

    Gameplay is good! A few things much better with the arcade version than SkyDiver for the 2600:

    1. you apparently only need one foot on the platform for it to be a successful landing
    2. the plane's elevation changes. Man, you have to pop that chute as soon as you exit the plane when it starts flying low ... Sheesh!
    3. Love the ambulance, too. Kinda morbid, if ya think about it.
    4. Scoring system. MUCH better than the 0-10 pts per jump on the 2600.
    5. You get as many jumps as your lives allow. You only get a static 10 jumps on the 2600.

    Awaiting INP analysis, and will vote yes pending it checks out, which I'm confident it will.
