For anyone attempting to collect the "further bounty":

You may (and are encouraged to) use WolfMAME .87u1 or later versions for the further bounty attempts. There was a problem with inp file sizes starting in MAME .84 which was corrected in MAME .87u1, thanks to our own Barry "mahlemiut" Rodewald.

In general for "further bounties" you may use the version specified for the game that week or a later WolfMAME version. An exception might be made for games affected by the .63 bug.

Hey, I have very strange question about Congo Bongo / Tip Top.

The arcade version I played in my hometown (it was Tip Top) had a strange "cheat" in the second level.

When you walked left and then moved joystick backwards until you got your character disappearing to the left corner of the screen (inside the black border) your were able to "teleport" directly to the next level (see the attachment). This doesn't work in any MAME rom versions I've tried.

You probably think I'm crazy but I'm 110% sure this was possible. I scored over 600.000 in the arcade game and played it religiously. Perhaps there were more bootleg sets of Tip Top or then MAME devs have disabled this bug/cheat from the MAME core.

It's Top Secret. I hold it for some cash bounty. :wink:

PS. My only one problem is stupid maze 1. I don't have perfect method for it :?

I totally forget about this very old replay. Because I used key mapping I attach it here.

It played back fine for me using the command line vc version of 87u1 on Windows XP Home SP2.

still doesn't play for me using that version, must have been a late addition compile that makes it work, it does work in wolf88 for me now.
