    60-in-1 runs Galaga fine for likely all but the absolute arcade purists. It will be the cheapest and easiest option. However, if he wants total arcade purity without an original board, than a good MAME machine or a RasberryPI Jamma would be the way to go. It depends on how fussy he is and how much money he wants to spend.

    Galaga - How good are the multiboard versions

    Thanks for the input.

    The Gallag bootleg option sounds like one of the best.

    Only $160 for an original board? I havenít done an exhausting search but I havenít come across any original boards yet.

    Might go with RaspberryJAMMA again.

    You won't get an original working Galaga board for $160, in fact, you'd be lucky to find a non-working board $160.

    Here's a rundown of each that I've used.

    60 in 1

    Pro's

    Cheap, game play and sound very good, reliable and easy to replace in the event of a fault, plus other games to play if you like.

    Con's

    No copyright or logo displayed.

    Gallag bootleg

    Pro's

    Reasonably cheap, available with Jamma pinout, reliable, can display the correct copyright and logo with reprogramming.

    Con's

    Requires a decent power supply to run, not cheap to replace or repair in the event of a fault.

    Arcade SD

    Pro's

    Plays and sounds exactly like the original, can program other games on it

    Con's

    Expensive, no longer supported with new games

    Raspberry Pi (can't comment, have never used one)

    Original Galaga PCB

    Pro's

    It's the real deal!

    Con's

    Very expensive, non jamma so you need a dedicated harness, very unreliable, full of custom chips that fail and fall apart, very expensive to repair.

    My recommendation, 60 in 1. Cheap and easy.

    Regards,

    Johns-Arcade.

    As usual Iím over thinking this.

    I think Iíll just get him to play the RsspberryJAMMA version I have and see if he likes it.

    Only played on a 60 in 1 a couple of times, seems to be the same.
    Never used ArcadeSD

    I think that bloke asking $4k has the decimal in the wrong place
