Summary 08257: alphaho: "Bonus Life" DIP
Description Picture below shows "Unknown" DIP 3 is actually Alpha Figher "Bonus Life" DIP: ON = 1000 OFF = 1500
Does not affect Head On. Head On always gives a Bonus Life at 5000 points no matter what DIP 3 is set at.
Steps To Reproduce Load and run game. Select Alpha Fighter. Turn Unknown DIP 3 ON
Play game until score reaches 1000 points, noting Bonus Life added to bottom left of screen.
Set Unknown DIP 3 to OFF, and play game until score reaches 1500 points, noting Bonus Life has been added to bottom left of screen.
Easy to reach Bonus Life points, but you can use "Bullet Invincibility" cheat if you have to.

This DIP switch also affects "Missile" on alphahob although the bonus life scores are different (DIP: ON = 10k OFF = 15k)
