B difficulty. Does anybody know what the difficulty switch changes on this game?

I wish the Flashback 3 had this included. I prefer it to Centipede - more hectic! devil

Quickly I read 2600 Millipede Manual at Atari Age, and it doesn't say about Difficulty Switches. Unless otherwise specified in the Manual, Difficulty Switches have NO function.

In most cases, Oyama is correct. smiley 

However, we have seen a few instances where difficulty switch settings weren't mentioned in the manual, but they did have an effect on the game. The difference was only found by looking in the disassembled code for the game, or by looking at the difference in scoring.

For Millipede, I cannot say for sure one way or another. If we are able to determine for certain that difficulty switch settings do not matter, the categories for Game 1A and Game 1B will be merged in the future (and trophies adjusted accordingly).
