No offense meant with comments on games choices.  SF is much more dated than I remember and Pig Newton is... oh, okay, offense meant with that one.  LOL  I actually thought Joey was joking, after all he's been using it as a threat for 2 years now.  Come on Joey, what's your real choice?  Wink

I'd forgotten that this existed - it must be close to 35 years since I last played this (in Ayr IIRC)

We used Mame defaults for the last round.  Same this time Bones?  I've just been deleting my cfg files and playing with whatever settings come up.

Defaults for Wonderboy are:

Lives: 3
Bonus: 30K, 120K, 210K, 300K
Difficulty: Easy

I've been having really bad screen tearing on Wonderboy on MAME. Turning VSync off has sorted it in case anyone is having the same problem.

Pretty sure someone on here said that older mame versions had a bug with the wonderboy emulation that gave shaky scrolling. I'd previously thought it was down to needing a more beefy PC Smile
Looking at my Mame settings on the PC (so LED panel / screen running at 60Hz), I have it on wait for Vsync and Sync to monitor refresh and seems OK here  (mame version 0.158)

waitvsync                 1
syncrefresh               1
