Ah no - I confess, that was actually my fault! ;-)
Round about the time of "Atest4" (later After Burner Emu, later the infamous Final Burn) I hadn't yet programmed a dialog to change the dip switch settings, and just had them hardcoded to a value. And I realised that if you hardcoded them to Continue Option 'ON' it killed the game (you can just keep inserting coins and the plane eventually flies through all the explosions and finishes the game).
So I set the Continue Option to OFF, I love After Burner so much, I just couldn't bring myself to kill the game by allowing infinite credits.
Subsequent hate mail ensued and the option was added :-(
It would be nice in emulators to have hiscore tables related to a particular amount of credits (e.g. defaulting to 3 credits or so...). Repeatedly pressing '5' to win the game isn't fun :(
