        Let me see now ... chrisbo has Bomb Jack as his avatar (probably looks like him too, just like Barra his avatar) ... nominates Bomb Jack and gets it ... looks at the AA record ... and who knows what happens next?

        30 other players are in the mix!

        Are you sure?

        Ramere has the AA record, time for me to send him a PM to get him out of his slumber.
        You know he was the champion of MGL 10 back in 2010 ...

          RUSTY!

          I watched Paul Kearns from the UK's YouTube vid of BombJack last year, he absolutely owns this game. Had a quick chat to him on Facebook too, nice bloke also if you're a FB user - look him up.

            That's enough jacking for one night. That should keep me in 1st until Chrisbo posts a score shortly

              I like this game... this is one I loved as a kid.... I am not good at it and doubt I will do any good, but time will tell..... I hope this doesn't keep my distracted from Q*bert, but it might

                This was an all time favorite of mine too - I learnt quite a few things last time it came up in a MGL that I didn't know about it. I think to get really good at it you need to play with a joystick, keyboard doesn't seem to cut it, well not for me anyway. I think I scored 937k last time it came up, couple of quick games tonight and I have no idea how I managed that score. Be interesting to see if the record goes down, there are several very good players getting around AA

                  The dip switches on the version I have, have a Extra Life section. I have it set at None but is that what it should be?

                        Yes, set to NONE is correct.
                        I checked the last time it was played in MGL 10 and it was to be set to NONE for those versions of MAME that have it and pcbs.
                        DKong or Rat can confirm this too.

                        Judging by what I read in the MGL 10 thread, many players thought they were no good at it but learnt some great point scoring methods.
                        I think you will find this too ...

                            This is my all time favourite game.

                            You are right in noticing the shortfall of using a keyboard because this is an 8-way joystick game and you are technically handicapped by using the 4 arrow keys. This slight problem was the motivation behind me building my cabinet (which is taking longer than I had imagined so I will still be on a keyboard for this MGL).

                            In the interest of full disclosure I held the top score at Twin Galaxies back in 2011 but this has now been overtaken by kernzy (who you mentioned). I haven't played it seriously since back then because I'm waiting until I can play with a proper joystick before attempting to regain my top spot.

                            Still looking forward to putting in some BJ time for this MGL and maybe it will kickstart me into finishing my machine.

                              I actually had a game of this the other week at Savage's meet on his bar top, I wasn't much better using a joystick I don't do too bad on keyboard, but it is hard to do some of the leeching (I won't mention any more about that until week 2)

                              Oh this is going to get messy, Barra better post a BIG score on BP or this MGL may just get away from him right here.

                              There was sooooo much I didn't know about BombJack prior to playing it in the MGL - there are still a couple of things I'm unsure about but I'll wait until it comes up in here instead of going back and reading
