Please be advised that the "Arcade Archives" version has its own leaderboard as the game is emulated differently than on MAME (noticeable by how the music is interpreted by AA's emulator), and runs faster than the original.

Therefore, it wouldn't be fair to rank it against runs made on accurate emulators (such as MAME, WolfMAME, GroovyMAME), or the original hardware for that matter. Thus why these versions now have their own leaderboards.
