Atari 5200 Baseball difficulty levels?

Postby VideoGameCritic » May 6th, 2009, 6:36 pm

Well I plan to play a lot of Atari 5200 baseball this summer, but there's one question I never knew the answer to.  What effect do the difficulty settings (beginner, medium, advanced) have any effect on the two-player mode? 

We usually play advanced, but if beginner generates more offense, we might want to use that.  If anybody knows, let me know.  Thanks

There's a chart in the manual that explains the specific differences...

In two-player games, if the players are of different skill levels, you can adjust the difficulty settings to handicap one player accordingly.
