Wondering if anyone here is running with the marco multi arcade galaxian hardware hack, 19 games and another maybe to be released soon.
Scramble, Uniwars, LadyBug, Frogger, Pool etc.

4 in 1 is easy hack to do
works great
8 in 1 is a little more work to do but looks good i am going to try that one soon

I think there may well be a SI version game being added soon.

I got the 8 in 1 working, like Dave said a lot more work than the 4 in 1.
I wanted that one for Moon Cresta :-)
The bigger versions were too much cash for me too.

8 in 1 is a great hack, would be made a lot easier if a pcb could be made up for the colour prom to save all that wiring. I gave my 8 in 1 away I still have 2 Galaxian boards here id like to 8 in 1.
beauty of the 8 in 1 is it uses the correct colours for each game

Trav, did your starfield work with the 8 in 1 hack? My didn't, but was working prior to the hack.
I can see a 'ghost' starfield in the background though, but they are very faint.

yeah mate mine was working 100%, perhaps the board developed a fault? IIRC The starfield should work even with the colour prom out in fact it will be the only thing visible.

Picked up the 16 game hack a couple of years ago, mainly for scramble and uniwars.
I believe it will soon be upgraded to 20 games with a version of SI :). I think that may be the end of the project :(

My other galax board is now hacked to pacman.
