Title: GH-28 : GALAXIAN THEATER for 28 players !!!
Post by: DarthNuno on May 19, 2008, 08:01:32 PM
(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/news/gh28.jpg)

The game 'Galaxian3' was originally a theme park attraction in Japan for up to 28 people simultaneously in a hydraulic gaming area.

Let's have a look at this monster attraction also called 'GH-28'  :P

Do you thing the Galaxian(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/Themes/default/images/post/G3.gif) 'Theater 6' is big ?

Check out this monster : the GH-28 version  :shock:

View from the top :

Here's the model reduced of the GM-16 model (16 players) :

(sorry for the small size of the pictures, but I haven't found better pictures yet  :-\)

Let's play :

Better than pictures, have a look at this video (only one minute of Galaxian(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/Themes/default/images/post/G3.gif) footage, but it's better than nothing)  :arrow:

if you will get GH-28,you must build a house for GH-28.
driving units on the 1st floor.
you can enjoy games on the 2nd floor.(you can see it on the movie)


......I tell a regrettable story.
there is no GH-28 in the world.
so we can not buy GH-28. :'(

there was two (possible to play by 28 people) Galaxian^3  in the world.

1st GH-28 (Osaka,JPN -> Tokyo,JPN) was removed scrapped in 2000 Mar.30,2001.
2nd GH-28 (Kanagawa,JPN)  was removed in 1997.


>Here's the model reduced of it :
these pictures are not GH-28. these are GM-16.

There is no GM-16 in Japan,too.
The last GM-16 (Himeji,JPN ) was removed on Mar,2003

First of all, a warm welcome to TomTwo, the first member from Japan(Tokyo) registered on this board  :-*

Many thanks for the correction regarding the 'GM-16' picture in my first post, it's now corrected  :roll: :-*

Galaxian3 is a cult game in Japan, and the most of informations about it are mostly ... in Japanese  :-\ which is good for you, but so sad for us, guys outside Japan  :?

Anyway, I'm really happy to have here someone who seems to be a huge G(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/Themes/default/images/post/G3.gif) fan and who can maybe help me to gather interesting information about the most *amazing* game ever made by Namco  :)

Don't hesitate to share your G(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/Themes/default/images/post/G3.gif) stories here  :-* :-* :-*

 Hello from Japan. My fellows referred your forum to me. I'm an another GALAXIAN3 maniac.

 I've played GH-28 more than 1,000 times. I've once heard that The 1st player
played 6 times more. That was so amazing experience and I'm eager to play it again.

 If I'm correct, The diameter of largest circle in the figure(of GH-28), the cylindrical screen, was 12m diameter.

Hello Mezaemon and welcome on this side of the world  :-* :-* :-*

It's a dream come true  :-* some experts who know the G(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/Themes/default/images/post/G3.gif) Universe ... and who speak English too  :)  thanks my Lord  :)

Maybe you don't know, but there is NO information at all anywhere on the web regarding the GH-28 in English (except few words on wikipedia...). All the articles I can found on the web are... in Japanese  :? ...and it's even the same problem regarding the GT-6  :'(

So here's the question regarding that 'monster'... I mean the GH-28 of course  :)

It has 16 projectors that need of course 16 images sources...so 16 laser disc players...and so 16 video laser discs with different footage on them ?!
Does the GH-28 played the mission "Project Dragoon", like the version we play on the GT-6 ?

I'm asking the question from an other point of view : Does the mission 'Project Dragoon' as we know on GT-6 is a small part of the GH-28 footage ?

There was only two GH-28 in the world (thanks to Tom#2-JP for the confirmation). Do you remember the price of a single play ? I suppose the GH-28 wasn't a 'free access' game ? I mean there wasn't any coins door like the GT-6 ? It was like a ride, in an attraction park ?!
If it's a kind of 'ride', does the time of the game was always the same ? I mean what happen if all the players don't play very well ? Game over after only few minutes ?

Argh... Maybe do you have other pictures of the GH-28 for us ?

One thousand of question with follow of course  ;)

Thanks for helping us to know a little bit more about these incredible games done by the God Namco  :-* :-* :-*

Post by: mezaemon on May 31, 2008, 06:25:28 PM
Let me answer your questions as I can.

>It has 16 projectors that need of course 16 images sources...so 16 laser disc players...and so 16 video laser discs with different footage on them ?!
yes. but as I know, there was no 16 variations in discs but 2 or so on. they were playing different "chapters".

>Does the GH-28 played the mission "Project Dragoon", like the version we play on the GT-6 ?
Yes, the story was "Project Dragoon", but there was some difference between that of GT-6"M8774D" and GH-28 "M8774E"/GM-16"M8774C".
M8774E and C was almost the same. I've heard that the 1'st version (1990, OSAKA)"M8774B" was different from "M8774E", but I don't know that one.

Differences:
1. No  "Destroy the air post" mission in M8774E.
2. 4 Major targets was located in the enemy mothership. One was the main reactor, as you know on GT-6, and other 3 fixed targets (I don't know what that was exactly). "Tower Cannons" grow out  :) inside the mothership.
3. No "Tower Cannons" on the enemy planet .
4. No mission failure due to loss of "shield".
5. No "lateral duct" burst through mission, and therefore, DRAGOON locates in just the center of  citcle of "Spark Bits".
5. "Sparkbits" (spell may be not correct) was not 6 but 16.
6. "Sparkbits" move from left to right and they go round only once. So if you are the only player, you "must" destroy all "Sparkbits" in only "one chance".
7. "Ending movie" was short. The last scene was the explosion of the enemy planet (if they failed, DRAGOON try to break out but vanished in the ray of "CANNON SEED", and "white out".
8. No detail1 score report. Only "ranking" (A to E, "A" was the best) and "TOP GUN" ("GOLD EMBLEM":stylized gold dragon or so on),
"No. 2" (SILVER EMBLEM), No.3 (BRONZE EMBLEM).

>Do you remember the price of a single play?
 500yen(GH-28)/300yen(GM-16) a game (and admission fare, sometimes).
There was "Passport" system supported in "Wonder Eggs" (except very early time of the park), it was 3,900 yen a day (includes admission) / 3,000 yen (night-time discount).

>GH-28 wasn't a 'free access' game ? I mean there wasn't any coins door like the GT-6 ? It was like a ride, in an attraction park ?!
Exactly right.

>If it's a kind of 'ride', does the time of the game was always the same ? I mean what happen if all the players don't play very well ? Game over after only few minutes ?
 1. Fail to destroy the enemy mother ship if players don't play well.
 2. If fail to destroy 16 "Sparkbits" within timelimit almost 20sec. , just game over that I mentioned above.

>Argh... Maybe do you have other pictures of the GH-28 for us ?
No , but my friends have some. I'll ask it.

I found something from youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMAMthpHfcg&feature=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMAMthpHfcg&feature=related)

I think its from G-28.

0.18 you can see the spacestation from another side.

0.49 surface of the planet.

1.53 This is most interesting. Dragoon goes to inside the Cannon Seed. The core is totally different. The main gate is always open and there is no another way in.

2.45 Escape from the Cannon Seed.

Post by: mezaemon on May 31, 2008, 07:21:48 PM
Sorry, something's wrong :oops:.
The "mission code" of GH-28 was "M8774D" ("E" is for GT-6 :oops:).

The movie from somewhere looks like the demonstation movie of GM-16. It's some kind of "remix", but
the source of movie seems to be almost same from that of GH-28.

Post by: mezaemon on May 31, 2008, 07:47:25 PM
Additional info.

"TOP GUN" "No. 2" "No.3" that I mentiond is just the additional comment. No display nor voice of such in the game.

Thanks for the informations mezaemon  :-* :-* :-*

I found something from youtube.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMAMthpHfcg&feature=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMAMthpHfcg&feature=related)
I think its from G-28.

First of All, welcome here Nuu  ;) :-* :-* :-*

Wow... it's a very interesting link  :shock:

Like mezaemon said, it looks like a video clip or remix but there are some great informations in it  8)

Let's see the difference between the GT-6 version and that GM-16 or GH-28 footage ?

The launch sequence :

In the GT-6 version, just after leaving the base (Killing Moon) you can see the beacons (triangle shape) until entering the hyper speed sequence :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/hyper-gt6.jpg)

In the GM-16 and/or GH-28 footage, you only see few beacons inside the Killing Moon, but not outise, like the GT-6 version :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/hyper-gh28.jpg)

It a view from the rear of Dragoon, which is logical for the GM-16 or GH-28 footage, for some players of course  ;)  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/back.jpg)

The Red Valley :

In the GT-6 version, while entering in the valley, your ship is immediately very close to some canyons/ mountains  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/planet-gt6.jpg)

In the other version, you seems to be more far from the mountains/canyons and there are some new structures on the screen, never seen on the GT-6 version :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/planet-gh28.jpg)

...and I presume theses structures cannot be destroyed because they are on the laser disc, not computer generated ?

The CannonSeed sequence :

It's the most interesting part  :o A lot of differences. Like Nuu said, the core is totally different. The main gate is always open and there is no another way in.

The CannonSeed structure is different, even the colors; Here's the GT-6 version  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/canon-gt6.jpg)

and the other version :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/canon-gh28.jpg)

...and no gate at all to destroy ? Maybe one of the reasons is because it was to complicated to program 'computer generated' destructible objects, so big like a gate, on many screens at the same time (to hard to synchronize) ?

This image is very interesting too :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/end-gh28.jpg)

Did you see these blue tubes ? Never see them in the GT-6 version  :shock:

Except these blue tubes, the footage look similar on picture 1+3, and the same for 2+4. I presume all the 16 players or 28 players see the same footage at this point ? Because that Namco video shows only laser disc footage and not the computer generated objects, we cannot see the enemies and what happens here ? Fortunately, Mezaemon gives us the detail about what happens here :

"Sparkbits" move from left to right and they go round only once. So if you are the only player, you "must" destroy all "Sparkbits" in only "one chance".

I would like to know where this video/presentation is coming from ? I'll ask the question to the youtube sender of it (maybe it's someone you already know, from a Japan UGSF group ?)

 That's right.

 Blue tubes was just the background. Footage ???..(background;inside view of the huge cannon). I've never mind that.
Because we were very busy for shootong :P.

I've just send him a private message via youtube... let's cross the fingers for an answer from him  :roll: 8)

Yes, it looks like a promotional video. But why ? Certainly not to promote the GH-28 because no arcade operator can be interested by such monster  ??? So maybe it's a promotional for the GM-16... but why never show the structure and a full overview of the ride  ???

I really don't know why NAMCO has done this video  :-\ ?

As we see on the youtube video, the quality of the image is very clean. So that video shouldn't come from a home recording device. The person who uploaded it should have a good/original source... but which one ???

Japanese video site Nicovideo have some GH-28 videos.

You must register to see these videos.

http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm2119336 (http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm2119336)

For some reason this video does not have colors.
There is also a video of very early Galaxian 3 version. This version does not have laserdisk backround. The intro video looks like Playstation one but some parts are different.

It is said that it will cost 3-400,000,000 JPY(≒1,960,000-2,620,000 EUR) , excluding the land acquisition cost.

[click on the picture to watch the video on youtube]

The end is funny, you can see the player leaving his seat (number 22 I would say), and going out to the exit, close to the phone's pilot... you can imagine his way following this picture  :)  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/28players-map.gif)

Now a question about the end of game ranking, following this picture  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/GH28/Galaxian3_rank.jpg)

Why there's no seat number close to the rank result? Maybe the rank is given to a group of players but in that case how to identity them following that picture?
In other word, who are the 'rank B' player(S) for example?

Found on Nico Video (http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm14543549) (a kind of YouTube in Japan) GH28 new footage, including a part of the briefing mission, a complete game, and also the 'exit from the ride'  8)  :arrow:

Don't miss the end of the video, when the players are exiting the 'theater' ... can you spot the 'row' of Starblade? How many Driver's Eyes can you see?  ;) :P

Great job you're doing there nuno. I am just so grateful for you and our japanese members here on the forum, for your dedication and sharing all that info about these fantastic giant attractions, which I would have totally missed out on if it weren't for you guys.

Being located high up in Europe's northern, colder, regions I never had the opportunity to actually try either of these large 'space shooting theaters'. I once encountered the smaller 4-player Galaxian3 on a holiday in Paris, but it had the background scenery missing.

Thanks you Uncletom  :-*

Happy to see there is some interest on this side of the earth!  ;) I've seen many pages on the web -GALAXIAN³ - related, but most of the time only in Japanese  :-\
Fortunately we have some Japanese members here who can help on this  ;)

I once encountered the smaller 4-player Galaxian3 on a holiday in Paris, but it had the background scenery missing.

Well, there's no GALAXIAN³ for 4 players... only 6, 16 ... or 28  ;)
Thanks to BIGJEJE, I have some parts of the Galaxian Theater who was ...in Paris  ;)

Here's a new video, quite interesting because it has been shoot in one take, from the briefing room to the air lock game, to the entrance, and finally to the exit...in one take!

Welcome back in the 3rd of June 1990  8)  :arrow:

Super clip, thanks! I love the pilot's gloves, three different watches integrated in his glove there.

About the "4-player Galaxian3", I am positive that it wasn't the original konfiguration. But there were only four seats and four guns. Also the entrance I think was a bit modified because there was only one, not two. I guess that they had rebuilt it to fit in the smaller location. I remember that I was very thrilled about it, seeing it almost directly as I entered the arcade. But when I noticed that the background graphics wasn't there I understood that it wasn't fully functional.

Wow, namco must have spent some on the luxury inside the G3 28-player theatre. I just noticed you have these small indicator screen with 'power', 'shield' and stuff displayed next to your gun at each station.

But what I gather from the video the total game play is only around 3 minutes, that's excluding any instructions and end credits. Is this correct?

Also, from looking at the flyer/promo the whole 'theatre' seems supported by a single rotating collumn, so it's a moving platform. Kind of like the Galaxy Force deluxe machine. What puzzles me, because it seems to be a solid disc platform, is how the game play proceeds when one side of the platform inclines (platform is able to incline as well as rotate, based on the drawing in the flyer), how does it affect the players on the other side of the theatre? When one side tilts down, the opposite side tilts up (?)

So based on these physical facts, all players sit in the 'space ship' which is equiped with a multi-gunner (circular shaped) gun-tower .. sort of?


Title: Re: GH-28 : GALAXIAN THEATER for 28 players !!!
Post by: uncletom on April 11, 2012, 09:30:10 AM
Also, I notice that the 28-player theathre has only flat shaded, non-textured polygons. Now I am inspecting the flyer again, and it seems like a mega-version of Starblade. Not Galaxian³ at all, but rather 99% Starblade.

The player filming this latest clip, it seems his view is to the rear of our gun-ship. Because at the start of the game he is launched backwards. Right? (I guess this moment is when the platform tilts slightly to simulate launching acceleration .. )

And, watching the clip I can see only what seems to be real-time rendered plygons. Both small targets and larger enemy flag ships are flat shaded polygons. And the planet explosion at the end is also very much like in Starblade.

Shouldn't the 28-player theatre infact be called "Starblade 28-player theatre" instead of "Galaxian³"?

Or, to be correct, perhaps the large theatre should be called Starblade, and what was released as "Starblade" in 1992 should infact be "Starblade - single player version", or simply "Starblade: Geosword"?

What is the name of the larger gun-ship in Galaxian³? Oops! I've learned that it's "Dragoon J2", here: http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=411.0

Ladies & gentlemen, here's finally a video of the famous 'GM16' model (Galaxian3 for 16 players) :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/G3/various/GM16.jpg) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNvfV7vTsH8)

...that includes the briefing room and a full game.

Note the difference between the GH28 : the game briefing this time is completely presented on a video... no human like the GH28.

Enjoy.

I tried to found how to contact the blog owner for asking him where he got that US version of the flyer/press kit and request bigger pictures if possible... but I cannot figure out how to send him a mail (it's possible to send him a comment via his blog, but there's a picture check (written in Japanese) to confirm I cannot input ???

Very interesting read, thanks to you guys for collecting that much information.

I got my chance to play G3 in Namco's "WONDER EGG" Park late 99 / early 2000 (not sure if it was GH-28 though, I need to dig out some photos, if I can find them). I did even win some sort of small metal pin for my jacket, with the G3 logo on it, as I had the highest score among the players in my turn (which does not make me a great player, but rather serves as an indication that the others sucked at G3 as well ;) ). Too bad I have no idea where this one went to, though.

what about that galaxian3 poster next to the galaxian3 cabinet and that other arcade cabinet, I don't know what that is? The Women T-Shirt displays the Galaxian3 logo Attraction Edition, While the Men T-Shirt displays the Galaxian3 logo Arcade Edition, though there's black letters instead of white.

I think I found a bit more information about that Galaxian3 attraction. The Game Engine they used for Galaxian3 Attraction could possibly be the Borland Program "Delphi 7" that Namco might have used to create this game, as shown in this image:
 (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_MUL4dX_6TD0/TEC3v55amyI/AAAAAAAAGS8/Rjyo_2kpQmg/s1600/g3-1.jpg)

The same could be said for theater6 as well:
(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_MUL4dX_6TD0/S-BmuClAKRI/AAAAAAAAFIo/Aa1SsNVXEJs/s1600/CA3C0188.jpg)

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_MUL4dX_6TD0/S-Bg-Qo2D2I/AAAAAAAAFIg/Z-l1-3Ht12Y/s1600/g3.jpg)

Notice the numbers on top right. It appears to be the number of frames for the whole length of the laserdisc. That can be said for the Galaxian3 28-player version. Also the one on the left of the frame number, It could either be the variation number or it could be the chapter number for the 16 screens. Regardless however, The laserdisc footage appears exactly the same.

Delphi 7 is actually a coding language, released long after Galaxian 3 and widely used even to this day. It is likely this person coded his video replication in Delphi, and used it to code the projection system.

Hmm. Well there isn't a tutorial on how to code a video replication so that galaxian3 attraction vid could be replicated.

It's been like a while now. :P

I found more pictures and most are from 2003:

(http://www.edit.ne.jp/~miwapom/image/osaka/galaxian.jpg) (http://chikira.net/foo/wem/hg3m0310_05.JPG)

6 more from this website: http://chikira.net/foo/wem/hg3m0309.html (I can't translate what the words say in the picture though)

Those were from the last days of the 16 player version.

also a rare galaxian3 poster picture and a miniture of enemy battleship:

and this Dragoon R box picture:
(http://usi.kir.jp/Data/Musium/Garagekit/DragoonR_1.jpg)

title logo picture (so many variations). too bright to see on the 2nd picture, but it's the artwork of the inside.

Update on the one below: as it turns out, It's one of the 2 fans one being galaxian3 from this site http://chikira.net/foo/wem/wem02.html

I can't tell what that is though :/

Np.

One thing that makes me curious though. While there's the 28 player audio on the OST, It also seems to include "Scenario Version 3.01β" from whatever it is from. Probably from an animation or just a Drama Audio (In which the audio track of a certain episode is heard or In which it's different from audio tracks now in episodes).

I think I found the answer to how he got those LDs.

https://bandainamcoent.co.jp/corporate/bnours/nours/vol18/36-37/index.html

At the GALAXIAN3 auction that was still running at that time, few years before WE3's closure.

Update: I'm sort of bugged out right now. The GALAXIAN3 Project Dragoon and Attack of the Zolgear videos (Except for Camera-recorded videos and Rising of gourb) are "Not available in your country"! Both full and parts of laserdisc, even the PSX gameplay of Project Dragoon. The videos are still there though. I know this isn't related to this topic, but I thought this was worth mentioning, since apparently, Victor Entertainment and other companies control which videos can be viewed in whatever country..

Something I wanted to post on the "Galaxian 3d diy gyroscopic ?" thread, but decided against, and I know it's been a long time since I posted in this, but I thought what I'm about to say was worth mentioning. Again, sorry for bumping the thread.

It seems we're not the only ones.

https://twitter.com/Ackieee/status/440005185088135169/photo/1

Apparently, MobileHackerz is using the Oculus Rift to demonstrate the gunner's POV of the 28-player video, and since that was 4 years after we saw it from 2010, this means that the LD Rip still exists, and we're not the only ones trying to bring it back to life.

I found it through http://twilog.org/WonderEggs_bot

Few more pictures of Wonder Eggs (mostly the view of Druaga) - http://www.babot.jp/babot-2007/m277/m277.html

I also like to mention that when WonderEgg3 closed down, it was to be reopened for a limited time, but a recession and a few degrees in late redevelopment caused its permanent closure early, at least that's according to a few online translators.

By the way, I was wondering if you have this: http://page14.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/s471389864

First 20 seconds of the 3 LD Rips: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rrvzEZpxQk

And it's in its good original FPS than we saw on the laptops. I believe that, according to google translate, he might be trying to find good video laserdisc equipment to capture the LD rips in the best possible quality.

Edit: But it looks like the 3rd video screen might need some syncing to do.

All those pictures from Wonder Egg III made me finally search for my own photos from my visit to the park. Unfortunately, it seems I didn't take too many pictures, or I've lost them long ago. I only found one of me in the WONDER EGG arcade, and, somewhat unrelated, one of me in front of the NEO GEO WORLD main entry (which, eventually, also closed down the year after my visit). Both photos taken in 2001 ... boy, I was young back then ...

Shame there's no motion unit installed in 16-player versions.

These Gunner positions certainly do not look like the ones in theater 6, and even the Wonder Egg Maintenance sign is present.
(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B8BWa_JCIAA7OHh.jpg)
This really looks more digital to me, but most likely still film. Then again, even digital cameras have effects that make it look like it's in film.
(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cc18n6eUMAEpJsZ.jpg)

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cc18n41UEAE8CNw.jpg:large)

Some might have been captured on film, but others look like they're from digital cameras. Then again, some of the photos of his other arcades look like it's on film. All of those photos coming from kei8774.

But these photos of that 16-player attraction are that of higher quality than the ones we found, and the photos were posted just this early in march. The wikipedia doesn't list it, but it's also possible that the attraction might have reopened secretly. If that attraction has truly reopened and the rom for 16-player still exists, then... there's still time to save it.

And if the rom exists, and all LDs are ripped, then we're not alone.

Ridge Racer Type 4. ;) The R4 logo in the bottom right made me look that up.

Wow, how did you spot it? Simply while playing Ridge4?

I have played Ridge Racer Type 4, but I hadn't noticed the G3 in it because I don't pay much attention to the scenery.
I recognised the Ridge Racer Type 4 logo in the bottom right of that picture.
So I Googled "Brightest Nite", which is what's written bottom centre of that picture. It turns out that "Brightest Nite" is the track name.
From there, I went to YouTube to find a video of that track. :)

EDIT: If you watch all of that video, you can spot more "Wonder Eggs 2" and Galaxian stuff. ;)
Do any of you own Ridge Racer Type 4? Maybe you can drive around the track yourself and take photos/screenshots.

A Galaxian³ brochure...a PC keyboard? Could it be the teasing of a PC port of the game???  :o :-* Please Namco, please...do it!!!  :P

Contents of the Brochure next week. Considering Namco, judging from that tweet alone, is apparently starting to acknowledge its existence even more (they released Galaxian3 PSX port on Japan PSN store) a PC port may very well be possible.

Let's all just cross our fingers and hope it's true.  ;)

Note: A few more images are pictures of the Brochure's ENTERTAINMENT page, Though still far from that "next week" message they mentioned. I still wonder what that means, if it could be theater 6... Or better, a 16/28-player Version.

Though if it were to be a PC port of the 16/28-player version, we'd also have to keep in mind the secondary screens on the controller, and the cockpit.

GALAXIAN3 sign fell and broke in half. That explains the previous pictures we saw over the years, as well as the ones with UGSF West.

EDIT: Nope, that was a different one. Two of them were broken.

And this too...

Now we know it at least went overseas. TOM's world in Taiwan, overseas. I'm surprised they even created a different version of the DRAGOON ship on top.

Wow, I wonder if anyone from Taiwan played that version. It looks like it's the GM-16 version because I don't see the "arms" for the hydraulics attached in the photo.

An interesting interview right here (http://shmuplations.com/shigekitoyama/).  :-*

(This interview with Namco designer Shigeki Toyama first appeared in vol. 0 of STG Gameside (2011). It begins with an account of Toyama’s early history at Namco designing robotics, before turning to his work on some of Namco’s impressive taikan arcade games from the 90s, including Galaxian3, Prop Cycle, and Point Blank

Very interesting. Surprised that Disney would have its own hallowween/christmas movie in a theme park, especially one not run by Disney.

So even after all these decades, they still exist?!  :shock:

Now I'm wondering if the secondary screen romsets are inside of each seat, rather than being an extension of the main rom.

Really sorry for bumping this thread, but can anyone tell me what the Wonder Eggs Memorial is/was? Can't find much else info on it other than these pictures....
