      From what I read on KLOV it's just changed sprites???? someone with knowledge of both could tell me. I can post the top 3 TG scores for Moon Cresta if that's the case

      I had a quick 1 min game of this earlier while checking out the ROM DIP settings. This is like Scramble on my laptop - the screen is very narrow, takes up maybe 30% of the screen - any ideas how I can fix this it's really annoying.

        It's much easier than Moon Cresta thankfully, Eagle was the US version licensed to Centuri. I know the Rat plays a mean game of Moon Cresta so watch out for on this one...

          Is this meant to be played with buttons only? Serious q as my cab only has two buttons.

            Nah, joystick is fine - that's what I'm playing with if I use the cab.

            Edit: Hoping I don't regret this rash quick Joystick decision like I did with Hyper Olympics

            Okay, cheers for the info. Won't bother posting Moon Cresta TG scores then. Wonder why TG isn't tracking this game

              Thanks - hope you don't regret either - probably makes far less difference on this one cf HO.

              Also great to return to what is for me the high point era of arcade gaming. Just had a quick game and forgot about the surprise attack diagonal men a whole new surprise rediscovered, one of the aspects I enjoy about MGL.

                No need to worry about Joystickgate 2. The arcade version in the states had directional buttons. Played it in the Funspot tournament in 2010. Space Invaders, Asteroids, Phoenix and Pleiades did as well. Always saw them with joysticks here.

                I think they track the arcade version of Eagle but not MAME for some reason. Snow Bros is the opposite. They track MAME but not arcade.

                  Am I just a sadist - I thought it would be funny if Hyper Sports was nominated and it came up straight after Hyper Olympics instead of this game

                          Not even going to bother updating the progress scores

                          So you die and are rewarded by your ship coming back with double fire?

                          Edit: Just worked out how to fix my skinny screen problem No more skinny picks after this one.
