  1. Patrick, Don, and myself are all within 2 points with 8 games completed, it's all coming down to the last 3 games. Gotta love these tight races.
  2. Just so you know, the dips in this game are wrong, Hard = Easy and Easy = Hard. This is for most or all versions of mame but maybe in more recent versions it has been fixed. You will be able to tell by the joker showing up after the first few seconds of the game you know that the game and not the settings = Hard. If the joker doesn't show up for some 18-20 seconds than you are playing the correct dip setting of HARD but the game settings of Easy. Just make sure that if the joker comes out quickly you should change your settings. The dips should be set to HARD so that the internal game play is easy. This is true up to at least version 230 of mame. If your playing a version of mame before 230 don't change anything as the default dips are HARD and that is correct. Other note not confirmed or verified is about the leeching issue. I believe that an earlier version of roms that have not been found or dumped existed when the game first came out. Leeching on the current romset that we have is quite impossible to leech for really high scores. The enemies in the game get really fast and unpredictable enough that you can't survive long enough to make multiple passes in the pyramid. Again just my opinion on the subject but I do like the rule regardless.
  3. Yeah myself have probably had over 20 sets if not more of EA over the years, sold most also, now just random boards or thrashed boards left. Probably close at one time had over 30-50 complete Taito board sets of that type.
  4. redelf 118690 I used to be a lifeguard when I was younger, you'd think I would be calm but nope, plenty of panicking at the beginning of the 4th stage.
  5. redelf 1840380 Made it to the end and sacked left over lives. This time I killed the boss but for some reason instead of letting game go on to end I jumped off the ledge and died.
  6. See telephone booth, crouch down when your inside it and get shield.
  7. redelf 1084980 I'm calling it a 1cc. Reached final boss and sacked a life to gain more points and then failed to kill it with my last guy. Stupid idiot I was for wanting a few extra points.
  8. Yes I grew up playing games with Tad, along with Scott Heyano (Stargate), and Mike Munoz, all great gamers. How do you know Tad and I'm pretty sure he moved out of the states.
