Why don't you post some scores???
When i play i shoot all the mushrooms (almost) in the right half side of the screen, but i can only keep it almst empty to 40k+ or something like that, after 50k the game speeds up an it's sheer luck from that point on.. The flea speeds up!!!!

-EDIT-
I'm at the airport, waiting for my plane to London, where i will be for 4-5 weeks.
@Etienne; i havent forgot the Crazy Kong PCB i owe you, but ill send it to you when i get home 

Dont worry Muerto, i got enough boards here, Keep it yourself, or make somebody else happy with it !

i got 2 original falcons that will be repaired, and another one (which looks like a boot), and is working in the cab ATM.

None of the above, i greased the rollers the wrong way.  ::) >:( After cleaning them they work fine.

I also installed the new pcb i got (thanks Sonic!), and that took care of a small graphic problem at the top of the screen.

So thanks to you, andre and barry i got a perfect working centipede!  :spaceace: :spaceace:

okay, that explains why there was only one way movement possible.

Yup. It was a combination of two problems which caused me to be a bit puzzled about it all.

Bottom line is that it's working again.

Slight graphic error ? Usually bad (E)PROM or socket.

Yes, when you visited me i showed it to you. The color in the upper part of the screen was slightly lighter then the rest.
