      I have purchased Sanwa buttons in the past but they are not really much better than other brands for the function they perform. If you have a faulty button then of course please clean the contact or replace it.
      Sorry have to respectfully disagree with this, I have been through MUCH experimentation with my Defender cab to try increasing my firepower and I must say a well tuned leaf switch with the gap and spring tweaked to your liking and style can make a big difference. Finally settled on the Rollie Leaf Switches after trying everything else first. This can be a make or break difference on Defender as faster firepower can slightly overload the processor if there is lots of action on the screen already and this can be used to your advantage, being such a difficult game even a 1% advantage is something worth pursuing. On my Astros I use Golfleaf Pro buttons, which don't have the adjustability of real leaf switches but they are fine for the vast majority of games.

          marginal improvement.

          so many rage quits after walking over a trapped enemy and falling in with them

          Glad it came up , will have to play it again after mgl and continue to see the other levels.

          I'm going to put an MCA in my multi-game cab, i think the stiffer joy on a lot of these type of games would be great, much like the buttons.

                  Just a quick very late note on this game, it was played before. Went looking through the list MGL high scores trying to pick games for the IGBY and noticed Lode Runner was in the list, probably played in an MGL where the results/sub-forum got deleted, well before my time.

                  Think the high score was around the 70k mark, so lots of players blew the old record out of the water.
