    ROM: mpatrol.zip

    FYI: This game received two votes, one was for Moon Patrol the other was for Moon Patrol Williams Rev. I grouped both together. We are playing the IREM version since it's what we've played in the past in MGLs. TBH I don't know of differences between the two, someone will no doubt tell me.

    See the above pic for the correct dip settings which should give you 3 lives, and bonus vehicles at 10,000, 30,000 and 50,000

    Early tip: The way the bonus works at the end of each stage, you are better off resetting this game in between attempts to maximize your score.

    I'm sure everyone knows this game, so I won't tell granny how to suck eggs.

    This is the wild card game and will run for the duration of the MGL. The closing time for submissions for this game will be the same as the closing time for game 8 which is some time away yet. The winner of this game gets 30 points, 2nd place gets 25 points, 3rd gets 24 and then decreasing by 1 point for every other place.

    To submit your score just post a picture of your attempt. The usual rules of the MGL apply which can be found here: http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthre...ULES-FAQ-s-etc Any questions about a tactic or something you think might not be allowed then post in this thread and you'll get feedback from many and a final ruling.

    Good luck.

    Not sure of the differences (don't think there is any).

    Game is an absolute classic! Should be fun. No questionable tactics that I know of. Just straight up play

      Well I did have a score but my Print Screen just got the desktop and I closed the game so it's gone... Oh well it wasn't anything crazy, lol.

      I have to say as my first time playing this game, it's really fun. A little clunky but I'm sure I'll get used to it

            One press of F5 (two if you're recording) will do the trick.

              I've been doing it manually, never thought to look up the reset key

                      Last time I played this in MGL I was going away & had to cut it short just when I was getting into it..

                      happy to have the extra time on it, looks like a good list of games nominated & new format keeps things interesting.

                      Game On

                        Same here, I was away for nearly 12 months so I'm keen to give it a proper go this time.

                        New score, 36 700

                            As long as it plays like MAME/the original then no issues here.

                              How do you like the arcade sd ? I'm considering getting one.
