    Yeh I agree, and since a lot of the MGL history got deleted ie before MGL 8, it's hard for people to go back and see what the MGL records were set at, as far as dip switch settings go. Doesn't seem to be an easy solution as there isn't a 'medium' that can be applied to all games, which is why we decided to go with the current 'record setting' standard of Twin Galaxies dip switch settings.

    I played this not too long ago in Retroleague, i'm not a fan of this genre of Arcade games but I don't mind this one.

    Shoot away maybe you should send it to Brad now If either of you have time you could update the hi score list to include the dips used, most early MGL games used the default Mame settings anyway to make it easy for you

    liisting 144 sets of dip switch settings doesn't really tgrab me I was thinking more along the lines of if anyone's interested in challenging a high score then look up the mgl it was played in and find the dips. Maybe default mame dip switch settings would be better to play under for most games

    Actually it's in the rules section 1 (I)

    • You can use ANY build of Mame and ANY front end to run Mame.
    ALL GAMES USED IN THE MGL WILL NEED TO BE SET TO THE GAMES DEFAULTS IN THE SETTINGS (Refer to FAQ’s for more information)

    I think Trav told me that he had to get rid of the archive becaue he needed the extra space to test stuff. So no MGL history
    "Beer, it does a belly good!"

    Wanted: Pacman Cab Next Project: Skinny MAME Cab for Samfoot, thread soon, no really. I might even do one on my Pole Position cab!

    Like anyone actually reads the rules, even the game dip switch settings for that matter

    But seriously.... if the majority of players would prefer to use default Mame settings rather than the 'official' TG high score dip switch settings, then happy to do that I actually thought that's what was being used in all MGL's as I never read the rules either

    When I stared Raiden up on my new version of mame it was set on diff normal, so that must be default.

    I like the idea of using TG dips because then we can compare our scores to theirs, but it doesn't really bother me either way.

    Man I need some warming up on this game, I used to play it well but I'm not this morning.

    One of my favourite shooters, Raiden, Twin Cobra and Flying Shark all get the difficulty progression right and the weapons well balanced. Later Raidens stuff that up, WTF were they thinking with that big arching laser where you just hold the button? stupid.
    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

    The purple toothpaste laser? haha yeah it's pretty useless.

    Raiden DX which is the remix of Raiden 2 is considered the "best" Raiden by alot of people. It still has that purple laser though.
