  • REDBOX is not so full of shit after all

    hello, i bought a machine today off gamedude today and was told it had galaga, moonpatrol and all the old games..... what a croc of shit ....!!!!!!!!
    no galaga, ten yard fight or any of the old games i was told would be there????
    games are in the manual but not on the board... any ideas or take it back!!!!

    That sounds a bit strange, you weren't looking at the 48-in-1 list by accident were you?

    I'm suprised such common (classic) games aren't in the 1000-in-1?

      Before flying too far off the handle, how about you PM Gamedude and ask him?

        hi guys, no i recieved a email with a list of games for the other 1000 game board, full list in alphabetical order and dorian said all the games are on this red box board but the aspect ratio on the red box is better.....hence why i bought the red box, i made a call to the shop sat morning and they said all games in the book are on the list..
        ive been thru and only got around 600 and not all are here.
        anyone got a red box board if so can you tell me which game file ie 148 and what number the game is for a reference so i can see if this is a dud board perhaps.
        any of the above games as a ref would be much appreciated
        cheers

              Guys, you've got a point but try and be impartial too.

              I'd be massively pissed if my favourite games weren't on the board when I was told they would be... but on the other hand you're right that thecomps should contact Dorian before the flame (first post).

              thecomps latest post though wasn't continuing that flame, he's simply asking if anybody else with the same box could help him better diagnose it, to see whether it could be a faulty box.

              Both parties deserve the benefit of doubt

                  I know on the other 1000 in one, it doesn't have Galaga, not sure about Moon Patrol.
                  But have managed to add these games in as well as Wonderboy. and easy enough to change the aspect ratio..

                  Not sure about the red box unit.
                  I fair amount of people have bout these so hopefully one of them will reply...

                        sounds like a 48 in 1 would have done the job?

                            Just so you know.
                            It has 1000 odd games... not 5000+ which are actually out there. There is no easy way to get EXACTLY what you want in one package.
                            it does have GALAGA, I have played it on the redbox, it also has ghost n goblins.
                            I know that because I was preparing one all Saturday morning which is why I could not answer the phone on Saturday (sorry for that) it was very last minute stuff but at least there was two strippers!!
                            It has altered beast and hyper olympic as well, some games use the japanese version of the games name like ghost n goblins for example.
                            There is another post here of the games list and it was compiled kindly by another member (not sure if its still available)
                            It is also the cheapest all in one games system around with that many games pre-installed, If you have to have some game that the system does not have then just buy that board.

                            In all honesty I have sold half my stock and have yet to have any complaints, a niggle here or there maybe but out of the box for the price it is you wont be building a mame system cheaper.
                            I really dont know what else you want me to do here

                            The 48in1 uses a vertical monitor you will need another cab
