    Thanks for the update - Thats the settings Ive always played on even in the arcade!

    Mame has updated the defaults to hard, hard, easy - which also matches the factory defaults according to the manual!

    I'm playing on my original board so I wanted to make sure I got the right settings

    In my mame 0.135 it says that (bombjack)rom is set1 and that set2 (bombjack2)rom is a clone of set1

    Also noticed that when I checked the dips there was an option to change the scores to get a free man. This should be set at "none".

    Been playing set 2 for some time, downloaded set 1 and played for a couple of hours, cant see any difference Maybe go set 1 as thats what they play on Twin Galaxies.

    I cant seem to find anywhere on 1 or 2 to adjust a free life? There is an option to adjust default high score though. Its set on 10,000 by default.

    Booya! Cracked 100k

    I'd forgotten what a fun game this is, always wished I knew more about it. The game has a real nice combination of chaos and precision that makes it so playable.

    Q: Should you always try to get the bombs in 'lit' sequence ? This seems to set off the 'P' bonus earlier...and is there an easy way to get the 'B' bonus come out sooner?

    Edit: Score update

    If you get the lit bombs in sequence, you will receive 50K at the end of each level.
    So by the end of level 2 , you will have cracked 100K+

    The adjusting free life comes out in later MAME versions for some reason, just set it to none if anyone is running this version of MAME.

    The P comes out once the bar at the top of the screen maxes out (around the X bonus you are on) I think the lit bombs increase it quicker.

    Also the B comes out every 5000 points so if you are close to a 5000 point multiple flap your wings (wiggle joystick) against sides to get small point increases.

    Thats right learning the patterns helps but the lit bombs are lit one after another in rows..

    The older version (set 2) says 'YOU ARE LUCY' instead of 'YOU ARE LUCKY'. when you collect the special - no game play difference.

    The free life setting is to do with the first three switches on dip2 - the manual states these should be left off. Someone must of figured out what they did 'ie bonus life @ 100k' so it was added to mame in later versions.
