    NOTE... DIPs were updated since 0.106 which affect Bonus Life.
    For versions of MAME 0.139u2 or later, DIP settings above translate as Bonus Life = None, which is not default for these versions.
    Nerd detail for anyone for whom this makes sense...

    Before 0.139u2
    PORT_START /* DSW1 */
    PORT_DIPNAME( 0x03, 0x03, "Bonus?" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x03, "A" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x02, "B" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x01, "C" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x00, "D" )
    PORT_DIPNAME( 0x04, 0x04, DEF_STR( Unknown ) )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x04, DEF_STR( Off ) )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x00, DEF_STR( On ) )
    PORT_DIPNAME( 0x08, 0x08, DEF_STR( Unknown ) )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x08, DEF_STR( Off ) )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x00, DEF_STR( On ) )


    0.139u2 or later
    PORT_START("DSW1")
    PORT_DIPNAME( 0x0f, 0x07, DEF_STR( Bonus_Life ) )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x07, "Every 10k" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x06, "Every 20k" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x05, "Every 30k" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x04, "Every 40k" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x03, "10k only" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x02, "20k only" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x01, "30k only" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x00, "40K only" )
    PORT_DIPSETTING( 0x0f, DEF_STR( None ) )


    ... 0x03 + 0x04 + 0x08 = 0x0f.

    Quod Errata Demonstrandum?
    Quod Erat Nostradamus??

        According to MAME source, yeah... to be precise, 0.140 or later - the change happened on a partial update to 0.139.
        Thank god they don't do those partials any more.

        Will play a few games on 0.106 tomorrow... it's nearly 4am over here, and my stupid head can't focus long enough to get past 10k to check!

        But simply put, if you can see scores associated with the Bonus DIP, and not just letters, then best set to "None"

              Pacific Novelty co. Circa 1982:

              "Lets make a Donkey Kong clone"
              "No. I want a Frogger clone"
              "No. I want a Jungle Hunt clone"

              After a night of cheap Tequila and a dodgy batch of LSD.

              "Why not make all 3"

                  Add a fourth guy to Rob's post who said "And dogs...got to sneak my family dog in!" The game feels more like a novelty event than an actual game. Cheery and silly. The high score strobe made me feel like I was at an Arcade Rave party.

                        and throw in a Tron-style screen selection for good measure
