I thought this was fixed in the 1.4 code but just had martian bowling cause a machine reset.

Have others seen this, or might there be another cause?

I didn't know there was a 1.6 code. I'm running 1.5 and I thought that was the latest update. Is there a big difference between the two codes and is it worth looking into updating my machine?

No, 1.6 was an official release for RFM.

+1 As I understand it 1.6 was originally/officially released only on PUB card. Someone was able to extract it.

Not sure I'd want to mess with anything beyond that as the provenance would certainly be in question.

If I can recreate the martian bowling reset again, I might have to try loading 1.5.

In case you weren't aware, Rob Anthony offers PUB card rental (with 1.6) for $30. You have to provide a deposit and shipping cost in both directions. I just did this and it was painless.

Anyone know how to force the martian bowling mode? Its only available as a mystery mode, but the times I've tried to manually recreate the reset another mystery mode is selected.

If you have a network card installed you can log in while the game is running and issue a command to start the mode.

What changed in 1.8? Who made the update (as it is listed in an above post as unofficial)?

If you're connected to the system locally with a keyboard or via network, you can select modes from the XINA shell:
"scenemgr select 7"
will start the "Question Mark" (Mystery) mode, but I don't think you can select which mode starts within that mode.

Versions 1.7 and 1.8 were made by the people who were running their own online tournament server (which has since shut down).

I have a Revenge from Mars Prism Update Card (Pub card) with update v1.8 and another pub card with Star Wars Episode 1 update v1.5 if someone needs one.

Yes, I have VERY rarely gotten a reset on 1.5... same deal. Supposedly fixed, but..... not.
