Sorry, but I'm going to have to vote no since you just finished a game but have 1 credit left, meaning you started a 6-ship game

Good catch KnexPaerdz! I had forgotten that since this particular game is set on free-play, as all the games at this venue are, when one hits the player 1 button, they automatically start a game with 6 men. Because it is set on free-play, there will be no way to play a "3-men" - "1-credit" game to submit to the existing track. Perhaps one of the admins can move my score to a new track listed as "6-ships", and then add in the words "3-ships" to the existing track that's already there to help clear things up.

I went back to the same location tonight and took a look at Gorf. The game I played on is set harder than default. You only get 2 men to start and another you can earn after I believe completing the 2nd rank. Because the game is set to free play, there's no way to start a "one credit" game without having your men doubled to 4 ("two-credit game"). Don't let the "8 men" throw you off in my video during the attract screen, as it is only showing you how many total ships you'll get for a 2 player game (4 each). Something else I noticed. On default, you get 3 or 6 ships depending on how many credits you use and another that you earn after completing a certain number of ranks. When you hit the player 1 button on the game I play on, you only get 2 men to start and another you earn after I believe completing the 2nd rank. The reason I started with 4 men is because the game is set to free-play and only knows to give the player the double amount of men because it thinks there's "unlimited credits" (i. e. free play mode) on the game and doesn't allow the player to choose between a one-credit or two-credit game. The "8 men" on the screen in my video, represents the total number of men in a "2 player" game @ 2 credits per player (i. e. 4 ships per player).

 

For future referrence, what I can do is only play with a total of 4 men instead of the 5 it gives me (4 to start plus one earned ship). When I'm down to 2 ships and I lose one, I will forfeit my last ship and my final score will be only the first 4 ships played. This is the best I can do, because I don't have access to changing the settings myself or know the techs good enough to ask them to change it for me.

Alright that seems fair. But yeah, the default settings are 3 ships and first bonus on the 7th mission. It'll be a bit of a handicap for you since if I read correctly your machine is on a harder difficulty, but you'll definitely have my votes from now on. Cheers laugh
