Now this galaxian clone is not in MAME AFAIK, so how many others know this game here is the hacked rom attached, yes click checksum bad so what, click and play. :p

Just I know this was a real clone had 100's of these in cocktail aus style cabinets over here in Perth in the early 80's.

Thanks for that, that was the original set i had on a galaxian bootleg here but the rom died so i thought it was lost.

CHeers, GEoff

This hack was made by twisty of mameworld, several years ago on request. He hacked it from the original galap4 rom to include the original galaxian graphics, flags and ship. As said these clones were around everywhere here in Perth in cocktail tables, my favourite version of the game.

Will it run in MAME32 with the checksum error?

Yes, it should run on MAME32, I haven't tested it with the latest versions on MAME, though it works here with MAME32FX .105

Actually if you want a copy of MAME32FX.105 then I just relised I have a copy of it online, it's a self extracting 7zip file, just click the .exe to extract.

Much the same though includes a few tweaks, fixes and one or two other options that might not be in the MAME32 build, been using it since .72

Doesn't want to run here due to a checksup error. Is there a way to force it?

Works fine here, with MAME32FX.105, so maybe try it with an older version of MAME, also works on MAME32FX.72, which I run on an older PC because some games run faster on that older version.

This is the rom audit here.

A late reply, I know, though with all this talk of galaxian hacks, thought it worthy of a bump. :cool:

Still runs a treat here with this ol' version of MAME32FX...
