This bug report isn't quite correct. The bonus life values are definitely 10000, 20000, and 40000. They're just backwards in MAME. Looks like somebody read the setting bits off inverted. For reference, the routine that checks these values is at 0xcfea (on either cpu).

Oh, and shouldn't the category be DIPs for this bug report?

I have the data copied off the Japanese DIP tables for Vs. Balloon Fight. Since I don't play this game, I can't verify any of this information.
The table says that all factory settings are OFF.

In any event, I will attach a English translation of the table for others to test and verify.

Hehe, I would love it if the game made you collect pears :) but ナシ just means "none".
