    Dip Switches

    I can't figure out how to change the dip switches to look like those settings. Mine only shows Fuel Reduced ... etc but not the numbers. Is this right or should I be looking elsewhere. (BTW this is the mame menu using tab -> Dip Switches)

    It should be the default mame settings anyway, so unless you have ever changed them you are ready to kick start


    Dip switch from MAME settings (that matter)

    Fuel reduced on collision <low>
    Fuel consuption <low>
    Speed type M/H

    First go after missing out completely on last week's game At this rate I'll get punted from the comp due to lack of scores posted

    Ah well at least I'll have had fun on the few I've managed to post a score for. I really enjoy this game but I was gutted as I'd made it all the way to the last straight road bit into NYC on 750cc when I got hit by one of those oncoming bastards and ran out of fuel. Was too annoyed at missing out on a crack at 1000cc to play again tonight

    Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do - my first nom to make it to an MGL

    Update, got that 1200cc stage and a better score. Still hate running out on the dirt stage - riding along on the brake looking for an elusive can to keep me going

    Edit - Still can't get past the 2nd last stage of 1200cc but better results and a focus on picking up a few points on the jumps/tight sections on the dirt as I inevitably failed on it got me up to this score.

    Cheers

    I don't mind this game, but was there another very similar that was a bit newer and had more jumps

    Monojoker that's a dang good opening score and will take some beating

    I've made the 1200cc's before but it's really hard to last much longer when you do make it there, cause they go so fast and that makes it hard to avoid crashing/losing fuel.

    It's a pretty nerve wracking game at times, quick reflexes / decision making/anticipation all needed and make up what I reckon is a top little game, good nom

    Had to have a quick bash, got to the 1200cc bikes but only just, limped over the line with the fuel alarm sounding. Got within 1K of my PB though

    Would like to know what best overall position players can finish in? I've never managed to come 1st to New York, best ever managed is 3rd. Big bonus points for coming 1st overall, 20k I think.

    Edit: Score update #1

    Edit: Score update #2

    Edit: Score update #3, I'm done now..

    I can manage 1st most times on the first set of 5 stages. After that, forget it, too much time braking to avoid accidents, especially on the dirt stages when reflexes really do come into it like you say

    EDIT: don't want to brag but on my latest high score I was in 1st position halfway through the last bitumen stage - it's awesome because once in 1st place there are no more cars in front - you can take your time and grab all the fuel, etc. Those kamikazee bastards at the end are still there though LOL.

    Music is a bit annoying, but plays alright.
