  • Taito cocktail with Pacman Questions??

    Hi Guys
    Picked up this Taito cocktail and have some questions???
    Came with a Pacman board and Im assuming that it was original with the table as the screen has major screen burn
    Questions -
    What make is the board or is it just a generic one
    Why has it got 2 harness connectors - was connected to the right side one in pic
    Looks like 2 chips are missing or are they not needed
    Im assuming the wire hack with the pot is for volume
    Lastly... The top with the routed edging is it a taito or from another table
    Thanks in advance if you can help

    Hi Ponty,

    The machine looks more like a Space Invaders as it has the control panels with space for a fire button.

    I don't think Taito ever licensed Pacman either but Pacman is notorious for rapid screen burn as the maze is there during attract mode and never moves. This photo, found online demonstrates that nicely...

    I'm not familiar with the PCB, sorry - can anyone else help?

    The wire hack does look like a poor attempt at a remote volume pot, the pot was originally right next to the audio amplifier.

    I have a Taito Missile Command TT which has similar routing on the top, under the glass which is originally masked black.



    Hope this answers some of the questions, regards John

        Thanks for the info
        Do you know why it has 2 harness connectors and what the 2 chips missing would be?
        Cheers

          only uses one harness.
          it’s a copy of a galaxian hardware as product of a 2 layer board.
          There’s two pcb board on eBay for sale and compare your board to eBay.
          Its needs a filter board if you running a jamma adaptor.

            at first that looks like jamma pinout on the bottom and maybe scramble pinout on the side. (sort of like a built in jamma adapter) but in fact this https://www.mikesarcade.com/cgi-bin/...&page=Pac.html suggests its actually AC and DC wiring support. cool.
