|I've just been looking at this and I have found that the Lives DIP / Unused DIP is for Coin_B settings (1C_1C / 2C_1C / 3C_1C / Freeplay) and the Bonus Life DIP is actually for Coin_A settings (1C_1C / 1C_2C / 1C_3C / 1C_6C). Example 1C_6C = 1 Coin 6 Credits. When using the service menu, the Coin_B settings are shown but the Coin A settings are not. In addition, there doesn't seem to be a way to change the default number of lives (3) as shown on the service menu.|

|I found the lives DIP switch. It is using an unused joystick input! I am about to submit the PR that corrects the DIP switches|
