@TascoDLX interesting that the bonus for Rounds 43 thru 50 differs so drastically compared to the arcade version (twice the points, but less than half the time given)

Yeah it's really just using different table values. You only need to change a couple values to make it behave exactly like the arcade version in that respect. I guess it's a little awkward either way because of the loop around.

Anyway, good luck on your high score attempts! Flicky is quite a challenge, to say the least.

Hi again,

I was thinking, and I think it would be great to patch the MegaDrive game to play like the arcade version? This would be as follows:

- bonus score lookup table correction (easy)
- diamond appearance behaviour (tricky)
- chick placement on level 38 - they are one tile too high (easy)
- skip end credits, levels wrap same as currently

What do you guys think?

Should be simple enough to do. You'd have to figure out where the level data is stored in order to relocate those chicks, but the rest of it seems pretty trivial at this point.
