Summary 07725: gunforc2, geostorm: Wrong difficulty setting "very easy", should be shown as "hardest"
Description According to the Gun Force II manual, when the positions 3 and 4 of the SW1 are set to ON, the difficulty level is set to HARDEST.
In MAME, the same DIP setting is shown as VERY EASY.
On VERY EASY, the game is harder than on every other difficulty level, so this setting is really HARDEST.
This concerns the 2 versions of the game : Gun Force II (US) and Geo Storm (Japanese)
Steps To Reproduce At the the beginning of the level 2, the crafts will drop between 3 and 6 bombs according to the difficulty level.
Set the DIP SW1 positions 3 and 4 to ON to play on VERY EASY : at the the beginning of the level 2, the crafts will drop 6 bombs.
Set the DIP SW1 position 3 to ON and position 4 to OFF to play on EASY : the same crafts will drop only 3 bombs.
