Title: Galaxian³ - Official Materials Book
Post by: DarthNuno on June 05, 2008, 06:12:29 PM

What a nice item. Here's the Galaxian3 Official Materials Book, based on the Playstation port of the game.
So it's also about the famous mission "[code:m8805F] The Rising of Gourb". It includes of course the "Project Dragoon" & "Zolgear" stuff !
There is also stuff about the GT-6 ... but... unfortunately for me... Japanese all the way... more than 70 pages of information... and I cannot understand anything :-(

The Japanese Translation Team please ?  ::) :P ;)       

Ok, here's some samples of the book :
(you can click on some pictures for an high resolution version... better for read Japanese  :-*)

This is from G-16/G-28.

You see the Cannon Seed is on top of the mountain not in the valley like in G-6/Playstation.

Is the book scanning complete?

Not Yet Nuu  :oops:

The problem with this book is : the pages from are a little bit bigger than my Agfa Scanner. It'll maybe more easy (and fast) for me to use my Canon Camera and take snapshots ? I'll try as soon as possible... stay tuned  :-*

I am REVO, a japanese G3 enthusiast.
I'm glad to know that many G3 enthusiasts are all over the world.
Mr DarthNuno, you have a nice book. Eventhough I am in Japan, I've never see the book.
I tryed to translate the caption of the picture above of "ACT5 RED VALLEY - POINT1437" start with "▼当時<ドラグーン>.....".

It is veru difficult to know the actual flying distance of the "DRAGOON", because the pictures of the gun camera are short. Picture below shows a flying course of "DRAGOON" drawn based on the memories of the pilot, after the war. We can understand that flying path after the decent to the planet is longer than expected.

This part of the book must be written as if Project Dragoon is actual, I believe.

Wrong english? Let me know.
Thank you for reading my poor English.

Hi Revo and welcome here  :) Thanks you for your registration on this board, and for typing in English  ;)
For some reasons the enthusiasm for the G(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/Themes/default/images/post/G3.gif) material is bigger in Japan than the rest of the world  :roll: ...but as you can see, they are fans all around the world  :P :-*

Thanks for the translation... we really need some help on this. The Galaxian Theater is a very special game and there's no information on the web in English... only Japanese ... So all information are more than welcome of course, thanks for helping us on this  :-*

I'll post more pictures of the book soon... just a matter of time  :)

~Stay Tuned~  :P

The other day, I found the Official Materials Book(OMB) in a wab shop and ordered it.
Now I have the OMB. :D

Does this book have any information about the planets?
Exia, Dogmas, Corneous...(Did I spelled right?)

Next, I found much informations about the Exia.
Informations for Dogmas and Corneous are less.

Mr Nuu, what kind of informations do you need? Let me know.
Sorry, I do not have enough time to translate all informations about three plants.

OK, the OMB have some Exia's informations you want in page 58.

Size is 1.1 times bigger than the Earth. (diamater? surface area? volume? Not indicated in the OMB)
The rotation speed is 1.03 times faster than the Earth.
The Exia soler system has 6 plants, the Exia is the 4th planet.
The only satelite of the Exia is the Zol. Distance between the Exia and the Zol is 410 thousands Kms.
At first, the Exia is a planet on which people cannot live like the Mars. However the environment of the Exia is modified into earth type.
The Exia is rich green resort planet and populer among the people of the United Galaxy.

Poor english sorry. Ununderstandable part? Let me know, I will try another expression.

Mr Nuu.
For the Dogmas, I found only one information. This informatinon is in page 6, but you already know this.
"The Dogmas is one of the planets of the Epsilon Eridani system."

For the Corneous, I found very limited information. The information is a caption of a picture. The picture is middle right small picture in page 12.
"The Corneous is crust collapsing because of its abnoemality of gravity. This is caused by UIMS-alpha's absorption of planet energy."

There informations are in the page 39 in the OMB.
