This came out of a pub about 20 mins away from town. An old bloke I know had it & I swapped an old pc for this last year. It has been a real bastard to work on but it's nearly finshed now. The 14" monitor that was stuffed so I used a 17" pc monitor & a 48 in 1 multi board.I have done the following. New joysticks, buttons, full rewire, new glass top, new wood top. Had the legs power coated, polished the paint & when the top is painted I think it's all done. Nothing was easy on this box. Monitor took forever to get it to fit, new buttons didn't fit old holes(1 button was broken & there a strange button) new top was hard for me to make cause I'm a dickhead working with wood, legs were bent & rusty and so on. I think it has come up all right and will be glad when it's over. The pcb out of this had 2 games but dont know what connecter it uses. It's not jamma. Maybe someone can help on that. Thanks all

Max

Yeah played moon alien on mame. Not sure what the other game is. The old bloke said it worked but had been in his shed for about 4 years. Do you know what harness I need? Can I make a jamma adapter so I can test it??
Thanks

I use one of these (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Galaxian-Jamma-Adapter-A-03_W0QQitemZ170066766870QQihZ007QQcategoryZ13718QQ ssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) they work a treat the little jumper is to select coctail or upright your pcb looks like an origional midway witch is what these are for
note to rember never use one of these on a bootleg board
no PM so I guess you want to keep it :)

I would be interested in a galaxian clone :)

Ok thanks guys. I would like to test the board before I thought of selling it. The old guy used to own a pub and said it worked but the monitor was stuffed and the board made no sound. I think he drunk most of the profits!

Galaxians bootleg with a 2 in 1 pcb set.

Moon Alien 4 galaxian hack and Multi Wars would be either Moon Cresta or Uniwars

Pretty sure you won't be able to test it on your cocktail if it now has a PC monitor in it.

Being a bootleg doesn't matter

As long as you have the correct pinouts for the pcb there is no reason why you can't make a adapter harness to suit your board.

Yeah the adapters Yaton sells are for the midway the only reason I said not to use on a bootleg galaxian pcb is most of them use the gnd to the speaker not speaker + - as the midway pcb`s so there is a good chance you could damage your pcb
check out the pinout diffrences for some boots compared to the midway set
