    Galaga - How good are the multiboard versions

    Questions for the Galaga lovers out there

    A friend wants to have a cab for Galaga. How accurate are the multiboard versions? e.g. 60 in 1? What options would people recommend?

    I have a RaspberryJAMMA in my cab, the Galaga seems fine on it to me, any experts out there played it and can give an opinion on it's accuracy?

    60 in 1 is a bootleg version. Stick to your Pie which uses the original roms.

    60in1 with the other games turned off is by far the cheapest and easiest option.
    If your friend decides he hates it then he can always upgrade to a pie or other later on.

    Happy for someone to go into a detailed analysis. Im a techy and an arcade purist.

    Working bootleg $70-$90
    Working original $160+ ish.

    Not sure the 60 in 1s have game score save if that matters to him.

    60 in 1 will remember the high score just not the name....
    Otherwise the Pandora - King of Air board is a different option. I have both the 60 in 1 and Pandora in separate cabinet's.
    I got the Pandora as it's vertical Schmups mainly and I love Raiden which is on this board

    Few people off track

    OP's question isn't about how to play galaga, on a 60-1 or Pandora etc, also not about what's easiest or cheapest... the question is what version of galaga on what platform plays truest to the original boards...

    One would think anything running Mame would be accurate, 60 in 1 is basically the poor mans version the Arcade SD if you can get one is another option but not cheap.
    Like others have said short of an original board a Gallag bootleg is another good option which can be reprogrammed to change the title to Galaga easily enough. The bootleg is far more reliable too.
