    Tournament Arkanoid score on a game which I own in my garage. PCB board is mine and is zoomed in at the end of the film to display normal settings (which are the easiest settings). Hoping to group and solidify the top 4 Arkanoid players as the top 4 Tournament Arkanoid players in the same order!! I would like to improve my score in both but I have to say, I don't think the three guys ahead of me have anything to ever worry about- just happy to join them.

    I may be wrong the game settings here, so if a Twin Galaxies member can provide something more , it would be greatly appreciated.
    Quote you Peter said dip switch Sw was only one set to the ON position.
    in the capture picture Sw 5 = is OFF
    That means the Game Difficulty was Rank Easy Sw 5 = OFF , not Sw 5 = ON Hard
    You create another track for EASY

    It has been confirmed on my findings.
    Quote you Peter said that dip switch Sw 8 was only one set to the ON position.
    in the capture picture Sw 5 = is OFF
    That means the Game Difficulty was Rank Easy Sw 5 = OFF , not Sw 5 = ON Hard
    You can create another track for EASY difficulty for Arcade Tournament Arkanoid and Resubmit this score for the new track.

    Then ask Twin Galaxies members to vote No, and you vote No to 7 avoid a credibility hit.

    ok, yes my mistake there is an issue with my submission. Please Vote NO. But the problem with this is not dip switch #5. Dip switch #5 is set to off as can be seen in the second video at 20:45. Dip switch #8 is on and the rules say 1-8 need to be off. I don't know what #8 benefits me but I will vote no and try again. If you look at the rules for regular Arkanoid normal settings, it says dip switch 1-7 need to be off and #8 needs to be on. Why Tournament Arkanoid needs 1-8 to be off, I don't know. But on closer inspection, the rules for Arkanoid are slightly different than for Tournament Arkanoid. Oh well. I should have checked that better than assumed they'd be the same. So I have to play some more tournament Arkanoid. DARN!! ....but Good judges!!

    The rules seem to contradict themselves. Its says 1-8 dipswitches to be turned off, but that would put the game on easy difficulty settings, and the rules state 'Hard Difficulty Settings'

    True. It is confusing and i mistakenly assumed the dip switches for Arkanoid would be the same for Tournament Arkanoid which would have been 1-7 off, 8 on. That's how i played it, unfortunatley. I'm not sure what #8 on benefits me. I'm happy to play it again of course, but just wondering if others think the rules are ok for Tounament Arkanoid. Because we have a leader board for regular Arkanoid with #5 needing to be on for "tournaament" settings which would be "hard" difficulty level.
    Normal settings for this one would be #5 off as the rules state AND #8 off?
    I wonder if any one else confirm what the deal might be with this before I spend another 20 tries and 75-80 minutes each trying to get a new score? Haha!! Thanks!!

    This was not your fault but needs to be corrected.
    Ask Twin Galaxies staff to amend and correct the rules for Tournament Arkanoid,you can contact them at @admin staff @SincerelyFranny @TWIN GALAXIES. They can correct this mistake before trying other record attempts.

    I will contact Twin Galaxies on this glitch in the rules. For those that have read this far, please vote No on this one, but please look at my other submission for Arkanoid "tournament settings" and vote YES for that one as that is correct with the dip switches as per the rules. Its a different game entirely and voting is in process now. I'd love the votes on that one and will resolve this issue with Tournament Arkanoid soon. Thanks!!!
