Hi this is one of my first repair attempts. The 3 board set is made by Konami, as well as the cab. When trying to play, the spacys leaves bits all over the screen. When they come marching back they 'run' into their own bits [they can't walk over their own body bits!]which resulted in them coming straight down. end of game quickly! Changed the 2 banks of sram around and found fault was on other side of the sreen now. Got 1 full bank of new sram from states and now works fine. After running for a few hours the sound was coming and going. Determining which of the 8 volume controls did what, the sound is there all the time. Guess master volume pot was dirty. Only 2 faults left, are, no sound when hit by spacys, and no credits/men left. Suspect the monitor needs adjusting, but has to come out of cocktail cab! Looks too hard to get out at moment! I'll leave sound prob as the screen goes red anyway when you die.
