Yes, I realize this is Expert, but I actually surpassed my Novice score! IT IS LEGIT, trust me.

holy crap that's a GREAT score Botbird! ...also, the difficulty switches have no effect in this game as far as I know. the manual doesn't mention the switches. if I'm not mistaken, these two settings will eventually be merged into one.

Trust me it does. I thought it didnt before, but I once turned on the console with it in the A position on accident and I was confused to why I was dieing on level 3 so easily. Then I checked the difficulty and It was on A and I realized that it made a difference. Trust me, play a game in B position and then A position and see what happens. Also, at one point, I had scored over 200k in this game, making me second in the world behind Todd Rogers and first in the 2600 HSC above Frostbite76 . I cant tell whether TR's score is legit or not, but this one probably was. Too bad I didnt have a pic. I made a youtube video showing some really helpful Dragonfire strategy right here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnJlEFYmq8c

The manual doesn't mention it, but the disassembled source code seems to indicate that the switches are used. Check this thread for more info: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/221926-question-about-dragonfire-difficulty-switches/
