Actually, you (the owner, not the player) can definitely control how many lives you have to play with.  I see it all the time on some of the older 80's video games.  When we were kids, almost everything started with just 3 lives, but in the past 10-15 years, whenever I see these classic arcade games, including DK and DK Jr., they can often have 4, 5, 6, or more lives racked up and ready to go at the start of each game.  So there's definitely a way for the game owner to adjust that option...   :-*

I guess I was wrong.   :-X

Snipped from the interview...dude loves you Canuckians :-*

NG: How many times did it take?
BM: What happened was I was first there in May, not having played in thirteen years. I almost did it, I got about halfway and then I messed up. I decided in my mind that I would go back July 1st and July 4th. That's Canadian Day and US Independence Day. I wanted to slap the Canadians in the face. I was there the first day, and I had a game going, and an innocent event happened. A little kid hit a plug on a whole row of games. And he knocked it out, and I threw a fit. It was an innocent thing and I kept saying the kid was Canadian. The very next morning I went back and the first quarter I did it.

 I did not know they actually had kept records of such feats.

That guy rocks.   I remember seeing him on some MTV special highlighting his mastering of Pac-Man.  He sells BBQ sauce* on the side.




*Or some other condiment.

Saw it last night - great flick and highly recommended.  After the credits (don't cheat), make sure to do some googling to see what has happened since the movie....
