Title: Galaxian Savekit incl. a Scoretable
Post by: ajhippel on July 22, 2015, 08:49:27 PM
OK Guys,

i just want to know (before i do a lot of work for nothing)

is there any interest for a namco (or midway) galaxian highscore save kit including:
* the possibility to enter initials
* a scoretable (maybe 5 scores)
* software dip-settings

Something like that?

I wanted to buy one but $45 + $27 shipping is a bit too much for me these days.

I'd love it but.......I already have this of course :

This already provides a non-volatile high score table so it would be ultra-brilliant if there were a way to combine internet sharing and this multi-kit....

yes, something like that, but no nvram. a nvram has the disadvantage that there is a battery inside (the dallas chips are already old, so i do not know how long the battery will last)

i use a serial eerprom.(no batteries anymore). the only limitation on a serial eeprom are about 1 million write cycles.

and there are software dips included. that means there is a menu at startup where you can change your settings.
and all the "standard" routines e.g. free play attract mode...


@andre: i didn't plan a multi kit - only for galaxian and uploading highscores would be there of course

edit: the online option will be ALWAYS available on ALL kits i will do

edit2; okay, except the bumpNJump saveKit (because the code is decrypted and it was a pain in the ass already to decrypt my own code for saving and loading highscores) - maybe someday if there is a loooot of time

Wow, hey....there's plenty more Galaxian owners out there who will love this...

I would love it if it would be possible to combine both kits but I can see that would be pretty unrealistic to happen.....or you and Macro could team up maybe ? :D

I would also be interested if I didn't already have a HS save kit.  :(
