CHEATS 'N' FEATS (w.i.p.)

Here at Virtualgaz, we are still dedicated to the arcade video game. We can assure you that the eternal quest for 'what happens next?' is alive and well here. These days, with the awesome cheat engines and save states available to we MAMEsters and Mame32-ers, we can show you hundreds of our ridiculous feats and some re-creations of our most memorable achievements during the halcyon days of arcade gaming. Whether by speeding up the fps, leaving it running all night (with a weight on the fire button) or just by amazing skill and dexterity, we give the answers to your age-old curiosities. Does round 99 go into zero? Is wave 256 the start again? What are the maximium flags? Will it roll at 999,999? Should I carry on and 'clock' it or put my name up? Does it end? What's the maximum possible score? Is the 'rainbow bonus' real?...

Oh yeah, a lot of these games were played under the first F12 versions of MAME and now appear as jpegs (rather than the original bitmaps). Some images have suffered from the conversion (but, thankfully, most had a 90% reduction in file size!).

If there's a game you've mastered or cheated bigtime on, send us a set of captures and/or commentary for inclusion. Too busy or not sad enough? No problem - we do requests too! Is there a better way to spend your 30's and 40's? We don't think so...
