    Doesn't the Homepin cocktail cab have a button to switch between 4 way and 8 way? I thought they did. The low boys do.

    Pretty sure it does. I think the homepin cabinet that Brad might be referring to was one we used in a comp, and we either didn't realise it had the auto-switcher in it, or it wasn't working.

    I had a game of this on Tuesday when it was first put in, it's a generic lowboy and yes, the joystick is in fact in 4 way. I'm crap at it, so 4-way, 8-way, laser gun or trackball won't make me play this one any better

    That should keep me ahead of @Barra for the next 30 minutes or so.

    FYI for those playing other WolfMAME versions...

    ROM set changed: no
    0.106-0.134: rallyx - "Rally X"
    0.135-0.189: rallyx - "Rally X (32k Ver.?)" (minor description change only)

    Nothing in MAMEINFO.DAT that suggests anything to be wary of through the different versions.
    Just play, swear, rinse, repeat. Here I go...

    That being said now I need to reproduce it
    Well based on the following post on the TG forum it looks like I may have some MAJOR egg on my face

    "Haha, oh man, you guys are in for a beatdown. Rally-X on Easy settings is already plenty difficult, but on Medium settings the game becomes pure torture. But just so no one loses faith, know that many of the scores on the TG leaderboard were done on default Easy settings and were mistakenly entered under the Medium track. A lot of the scores under the arcade track were collated from Funspot tournaments where the settings were never properly verified, and the 200K+ MAME score is inhuman on Medium settings (to be clear, 200K+ on Easy difficulty is still a phenomenal score). Eventually I hope we can reconcile these misplaced scores once the evidence against them has been gathered"

    Feeling a bit stupid right now. Once again I should have kept my big mouth shut

    90k+ on any settings is impressive, wouldn't worry about it
