This was at RGP, and after a lot of whiskey...so maybe it is getting your mind into a total relaxed state that helps! ;-)
Mine is the 2nd highest, and the 1st time I ever finished Pole Position.
Flat out all the time almost, couple of down shifts I think on those really tight bends, no crashes.


Cheers,
DaveO.

I struggled to get my Namco board setup correctly, but then I swapped the dip switches so that:

9E:
1= Off
2= On
3-4 = Off
5-8 = On

7E:
1-5= Off
6-8= On

(The picture appears to be upside down because that is how the pcb is mounted in the cab)
I don't know if mine is a special case, or if this is the same for all Namco boards, but I thought I would post it here in case anyone else struggled to get there board set correctly.

Ok, got some practice in tonight and "kept my foot in it" and managed to achieve 64400 with a no crash run. This was also my first time finishing the race on these settings :)

I don't know if there is a difference between the Namco board and the Atari board though.

So after a bit of practice at Nerg this year I finally completed PP for the first time in my entire little life.

Very happy indeed.




PS. No idea why photo is on it's side!

Well I never finished it as a kid and after getting my cab up and running I was determined to at least complete it. 55350, plenty of room for improvements. I lost count of how many times I sworn when I crashed, good job the kids wasn't playing it with me #@#@ !!!

Out of room but always room for one more !

Isn't that Pole Position 2 when it shows the name of the track (Fuji)?   Probably wrong, been a while since I played PP 1 :)

Your right Dan forgot to mention that, I'm guessing it's exactly the same track/settings as pp1.

Not quite the same no.   The game play is slightly different.   The TG settigns for PP2 are below, imo it makes the game VERY hard to complete!   You pretty much can't afford to ever crash over the entire 5 laps.

Preliminary Game Time: 90 Seconds
Preliminary Rank: D
Extended Rank: D [75 - 45 - 55 - 55 - 55]
Number of Laps: 5
Speed: High Speed
