    Always been a big fan of the series but no wonder I've sucked at it since getting the cabinet going, I either never knew or completely forgot that holding down the fire button gives you a boost.

    So many wonderboys needlessly drowned .

    First game 350k, will have another couple, but I get bored redoing the early screens.

    Dips seem to be Easy or Hard, no "Normal" to select so I played on Easy. I think this needs to be checked.
    Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

    Thanks for the heads up, TG doesn't have a mame dips listing for wonderboy at all, nor scores, which is weird, it only has an arcade machine dip + score listing, full details are:

    Arcade Rules: Dip Switch A:
    1-8 = OFF Dip Switch B:
    1 = ON/OFF [Upright/Table]
    2-8 = OFF
    Note: The above Dip Switches, are not only the FACTORY DEFAULT settings, but are also the correct Twin Galaxies Tournament Settings for this title;
    Number of Players: 3
    Score For An Additional Player: 30000, 100000, 170000, 240000
    Difficulty: Normal
    Special Rules: Collecting all 28 Dolls is optional. You may obtain additional extra lives by finding the hidden letters to spell the word SEGA.




    Will look into my dip settings on my cab - have just tried to on the laptop but I cant even get the rom working in either of my mames

    Have checked my cab's version, also only two difficulty settings, have changed the tournament game dip settings to EASY in the first post, extra man still the same points.

    Sorry about the mixup !

    Twin Galaxies (and others) list it as "Wonder Boy" rather then "Wonderboy".

    I've got the inlaws coming to stay tomorrow for a few days so I might just be hiding out in the gamesroom anyway

    Ha me too, been making good progress on hard... but now changing difficulty to easy, seems to me all it does is give you a very generous vitality meter ? rest of the game plays the same.

    Level 2 area 2 now, I'm getting up near my record Rat seems to be the one to beat 350k
