    Game on everyone.

        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

          I just played half an hour of this and am developing MGL blister - should have started training! Haven't played much since the last MGL.
          Looks a good game, have only got 70k so far and made it to 1970 once - more practice needed for me.

                Im stunned that you lads have not played Time Pilot?? I consider it a classic gaming staple.

                  I guess it depends on your age and at what stage of your teens (normally) that you frequented the arcades There were a lot of games in the last MGL that I had never heard of or played.

                  The story behind the development of this game is also interesting: - A classic game that almost never was.

                    I think I recall playing Brad in a drunken stupor one night and getting my butt kicked

                    Time to Velcro the controller to the bench
                    "Beer, it does a belly good!"

                    Wanted: Pacman Cab Next Project: Skinny MAME Cab for Samfoot, thread soon, no really. I might even do one on my Pole Position cab!

                      I was pretty pleased when #64 spun up, one of the landmark early 80's shooters this one. Reckon there will be some pretty tough competition on this title.

                          Make sure you have your DIP's set on the board correctly

                          I think when I played this in my teens that the DIPs must have been set on easy.... Crank it up to the hardest level and the game really does kick your arse rather quickly

                          We are playing Marathon DIPs (3 Difficulty) - Just looked at the Tournament DIPs on TG and it says:

                          ROMSet: TimePlt
                          Lives: 3
                          Cabinet: Upright
                          Difficulty: 3
                          Bonus: 20000 60000
                          Difficulty: 8 [Hardest]
                          What is it 3 or 8? Will have to post a question on the TG forums and get them to fix this.

                            Surely it must be 3, 8 is crazy!

                              The high score for the Tournament is well over the Marathon (3) score, so I'm guessing it's 3 also. I've posted a question on TG, hopefully a ref will clarify and fix the settings.
