    Nice game Timothy. Great to be witness to your progression and skills.

    The thing that is growing on me with (watching) this game is the coolness of the cabinet, the physicality of the controls and feedback. Quite a cool cabinet you got there. Not sure if you touched on this before, but I gather you played this a lot as a kid?

    Awesome work, TJ! It's been a great ride following your progress and learning more about the game and its mechanics as well as strategy. You've earned a rest, hopefully you can come back recharged for that 1.3 million and beyond!

    On majority of classic arcade games like Spy Hunter on Submissions show the hardware PCB CPU ROM's especially a clear CK see up of the dip switch game settings, that get all TG members to vote yes, I am sure that it is arcade, some may emulator.

    1. Can you put in either in a reply or in you Additional Video Evidence showing dip switch game settings, PCB.

    That is why it is taking longer to get voted into TG Scoreboard Database archives.
    Congratulations on your personal record next 1.5 million points then 2 million.

    How can I show the inner workings of an arcade machine? It weighs 300 to 400 lbs...the machine's settings and basic functioning would be impacted if the PCB was modified...it wouldn't work would it? The settings screen on test mode shows the factory default screen and you can see me opening the machine to toggle test mode. There is no mystery here...especially since my first score of 1.239 million was accepted.

    What is a CK?

    I think "CK see" was an autocorrect error of "close" as in "CK see up" is "close up"

    As for showing the guts of that thing - you may be able to have a look inside through the coin door and a webcam in hand or something like that. I actually bought an inspection cam a while back that has a gooseneck flexible camera dealie which is extra nice - it has a light on it and an RCA video out option. Anyway just make sure you power down the machine before sticking your hands in there.
