LISA has two types of play modes:
- Fixed modes - are predefined by the manufacturer. They can not be changed. (The only way how to do it is upgrade). The only parameter which can be selected for fixed mode by the user is bonus adding method. All four types are available for all bonus modes.
- User modes - created by the user according his individual needs. Everything can be set in quite unlimited way: type of the game (including Gong etc.), number of periods, times, bonuses and their adding methods. User modes obtain even user-specific
All user modes allow to have different times for both players. This settings can be quite unlimited (including different bonuses) and can be different in different periods.
Handicap is the only case that needs to specify times for both players while creating user play mode. If the user does not explicitly specify that current mode is a handicap one, he is not bothered by necessity of specifying doubled data.
