A guy came into work today and saw my US style cocktail and said I have an old crap one at home. Had it for 10ish years. Has pacman he told me but it's a space invaders clone. He needed a 1gig Ram stick for his PC so he said he will swap me for it. It works and plays but the monitor is abit sick. Still good for $22!!!

LOL I was looking for your pics to show the wife but couldn't find them. When I got it home she like's it!! I don't really want it but I couldn't let it go. It works fine but the monitor is abit bright, & when you play 2 players the screen doesn't rotate. Be a fun job tho doing it up. I'm just rapped I got the glass clips on this one.

Just repaired one of these for a mate,originally "cosmic Monsters" (colour version of space invaders) but had a Phoenix. Rotating players ,I think is a dipswitch setting.
Good score! mate paid $350 for his.

It's funny cause this guy didn't say anything about having a cab. He came back to pick up his PC & we got talking about crap & I said I play with these in my spare time and then he said I have one at home. I think you need to wear a T-shirt or write on your forehead WANTED MORE CABS and see if people click then.
Narf if you can send a pic of the coin door that would help alot please. No hurry tho. And BTW I love that carpet too!!!

Thanks Narf. I'll try the pic's first. It's funny that on 2 players the screen doesn't flip but you have to use the 2nd player controls. Will get some pic's when I start playing with it. There's 29 years of black dust in there and that familiar smell of the old wood.
