I have been playing some tut on my mame cab at a mates house, best so far is 24,000 or so,
But yesterday afternoon I noticed it was a 3 button game and I only have 2 on my cab,
Once I hook something up I can see if the lightning will help boost my score.
Not sure of the difficulty settings it's on but it's 3 man for lives.

Tut is actually a dual joystick (and one button) game - one 4-way for movement, one 2-way for fire, and one button for the lamp bomb thingy.

MAMEdev only recently became aware of this and changed its configuration.  Now, while it's not really important how you set things up to play on MAME, it is important to note that with the button configuration for fire, a player can shoot both directions at once, which of course is not possible with a joystick configuration.
Thanks for that Ross
That changes things abit. I can't add a second joystick but I might put the lighting on the two buttons being pushed simultaniesly.

Does this mean it would be possible to shoot both directions on the original arcade hardware if you swapped the second two way joystick for buttons?
Would be interesting to find out.

I gave Bubbles a bit of a play last night.  Had never played before.  I usually don't like games that require only one hand but this one is pretty fun.  I didn't record any games but I managed to crack 100k a couple of times making it to sink 15.  It seems almost all of my deaths come from finishing a sink with my bubble not big enough and running into the spider with the broom (or whatever it is) pointing in the wrong direction.  Both of these types of deaths are very frustrating.  You run around the sink collecting everything in sight and then all of a sudden the level ends and you die.  In reading back, maybe going after the ants more will help with this.

A tip for those not aware: In regards to growing your bubble, ants are worth a little more than the crums and the oils spots.

I did some quick investigating with the MAME debugger and this is true. From what I can tell, your bubble always starts at the same size and always has to grow to the same size to get the mouth. If you assign values to the size of the bubble and the amounts by which it grows or shrinks for cleaning/colliding it look something like this:

Base value for size: 0
Minimum size needed for mouth: +1536
Crumbs: +45
Grease: +60
Ants: +70
Cleaning Lady: +128 alone and +the combined value of objects she has swept up
Killing a roach with the broom: +256
Colliding with brush/sponge: -256

It also appears that some of the value assigned to size will carry over into the next sink, but your starting size on the next sink can only be between 0 and 255. The bonus points at the end of the sink are based on how many multiples of 256 your bubble has grown beyond the 1536 needed for the mouth.

This kind of stuff is probably impossible to count on-the-fly, but it highlights two important things for me: 1) Grab as much as junk as you can early so it doesn't go down the drain. 2) Make sure you grab the Cleaning Lady before she disappears, otherwise she takes the size-growing junk (and points) with her.

EDIT: Determined that killing roaches also adds to bubble size, and added the value to the above list. Also I suck at hexadecimal.

1 out of 3 months is down! Just a reminder that there are only 2 months left on this!

I know Ross is intending of getting his mame setup with xarcade for Tut, but it'd be cool to see others play these games as well on twitch!

I've increased my Tut PB to 71k, but I'm going to hold off on submitting for awhile until I can 1) clear stage 4 consistently and 2) get some answers regarding game settings in this TG thread.
