Re: Up'n Down - Checkered Flag

What I do not know yet is what causes this flag to come out. I've played the game well over 1000 times and have only seen it this once.

Re: Up'n Down - Checkered Flag

Should have realized this earlier, but the cars that normally carry the coloured flags are carrying triangular-shaped flags. The car I spotted is carrying a squared-off flag. I am willing to bet that had I captured it this would have ended that wave...gut instinct only. Hopefully I'll see again at s...

Up'n Down - Checkered Flag

Hi: I was playing some "Up'n Down" using WolfMAME 106 and encountered something that I had never seen before, not even as part of the MARP record performance. In the 10th stage, on my last car, I encountered an opponent car carrying a flag on top. Normally these flags bear the colour of one of the r...

Re: Road Fighter

Hi Barry: Part of your response was whether the harder setting somehow made the game easier. Here is what I have already informed TG of the differences between the two based on my personal experience with the title since pre-2004. In short, "factory default" allows more opportunities to pass opponen...

Re: Road Fighter

Thanks, Barry !! I just tried an "Easy" game...it's like night and day. For TG, on the PS1 system there were four difficulty settings ranging from easy to hardest, but just one setting to change. On MAME there are three separate settings. I have no idea what for the PS1 each represented of the three...

Re: Road Fighter

I just deleted the CFG file and started a new game session...the three settings in question were now all "EASY". Does that imply that the MARP settings are the factory default ? Thanks.

Road Fighter

Hi:

What are the official MARP settings for this title ? I have my WolfMAME configured to TGTS and am not sure if that matches MARP.

Here's what I am using...

No Opponents - MEDIUM
Speed of Opponents - DIFFICULT
Fuel Consumption - MEDIUM

Thansk.

FINALLY...Stage 1 Secret Revealed !!

Hello fellow gamers: I believe I am the first gamer to discover the secret to stage 1 !! Took me long enough as "Weehawk's" competition ended seven months ago. Oaky, in this enclosure (WolfMAME 106), all you need to do is watch what I do on my third (3rd) life in stage 1. I still am not 100% sure wh...

Red UFO Slowdown

Hello fellow gamers: I just discovered a title called "Red Terra" (ROMset = "REDUFI") in which the game slows down during swarms at the most inopportune moments, typically when the swarm comes with the mother ship still on screen. I have no other apps open, Norton is set to block traffic while playi...

Simple Frogger Query

Hello everyone: I have a question concerning the randomly appearing object on the top level. Years back a few local NYC players called that the "Galaxian". Just wondering if anyone knows what this object was originally designed to resemble as for as the original programmers go. Thansk. Robert PS - s...

Secret Solved !!

Hello fellow gamers: Using gamer "LN2's" suggestion, I tooled around with the stage and caught that mysterious money bag. Like the frog it is worth 5,000 points. You will see in the INP that follows I made several attempts on the same life, the last of which did the trick. What I am still unsure of ...

TG Marathon Settings Change

Hello fellow gamers:

Just upped the settings to match MARP on this title to "NORMAL" difficulty level for marathon mode. So now we're in synch for the title.

I Found a NEW SECRET in Pandora !!

Hello fellow gamers: Seldom can I claim to finding a secret that no one else has in an established arcade title from the golden era, but I think I just did find such a secret, purely by accident !! In the enclosed zip file, the secret is uncovered in stage 4 which is one of the two stages that no se...
