              Good nomination

              A bit rusty, haven't played this for ages but it used to be a regular. A fun platformer that isn't ridiculously hard, improvement comes pretty quickly, even if you're unfamiliar with the game. Skateboarding through the clouds sections never gets old

              Great pic wingtip, I've been thinking recently about a 'meet your fellow MGL'ers' type thread within the MGL forum (well not meet....but at least, see!) where you can post a pic of yourself at your cab / mame machine / laptop / grotto or whatever, it would be kind of cool I think, to put a face to some of the names ?

                Ohhhhhh.............classic game, used to play this a fair bit in the arcade because it was a good value for money game.

                Never completed it, and wont now, but have come close.

                Will play, but expect to come middle of the ranks due to time, and motivation. Takes soooooo long to get to the bits i find hard, then i die.

                Have been tempted to save state to finish in the past, but don't want to cheat myself.

                Is that Vectrex manipulating his knob in the chair at your place Wingtip?

                Perhaps he would like to come up and play Asteroids, it's Vector, but has no knobs.

                TTBA
                Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

                  They should be in Launceston this weekend, are you going to be home, you should come around for a few games and we could come around for a few games of Asteroids

                    I don't have any weekends free for awhile, either working or have something on already

                    Sat Feb 12th is OK for me ATM, I might see about organizing a get together for that day.

                      Always been a big fan of the series but no wonder I've sucked at it since getting the cabinet going, I either never knew or completely forgot that holding down the fire button gives you a boost.

                      So many wonderboys needlessly drowned .

                        First game 350k, will have another couple, but I get bored redoing the early screens.

                        Dips seem to be Easy or Hard, no "Normal" to select so I played on Easy. I think this needs to be checked.

                          Thanks for the heads up, TG doesn't have a mame dips listing for wonderboy at all, nor scores, which is weird, it only has an arcade machine dip + score listing, full details are:

                          Arcade Rules: Dip Switch A:
                          1-8 = OFF Dip Switch B:
                          1 = ON/OFF [Upright/Table]
                          2-8 = OFF
                          Note: The above Dip Switches, are not only the FACTORY DEFAULT settings, but are also the correct Twin Galaxies Tournament Settings for this title;
                          Number of Players: 3
                          Score For An Additional Player: 30000, 100000, 170000, 240000
                          Difficulty: Normal
                          Special Rules: Collecting all 28 Dolls is optional. You may obtain additional extra lives by finding the hidden letters to spell the word SEGA.




                          Will look into my dip settings on my cab - have just tried to on the laptop but I cant even get the rom working in either of my mames

                            I dont think the extra man scores were the default but they are there to select from

                              Have checked my cab's version, also only two difficulty settings, have changed the tournament game dip settings to EASY in the first post, extra man still the same points.

                              Sorry about the mixup !
