I got a reply too! We need Bruno's help! I don't want this game to die. Its a problem with the boards on the game. I messaged Bruno to help and told Fun World about this forum.

Anyone have the Galaxian 3 Schematics, Namco System 21? They asked me for the schematics, we need to find them at all costs! If no one has them I can dig around.

Aren't parts of the schematics included in the Theater 6 Installation Manual that DarthNuno posted several years ago?

Well, I was in touch with them on facebook (Fun World of Nashua!) in July 2017, already asked for symptoms :

We are having problems with the board that we call the IO board. There is one board for every 2 seats. We have gone from 6 seats to 4 seats to 2 seats to no seats working. We move the working board to seat 1& 2 because that is where you get into programing.  I had a tech look at it and she said one of the 2 seats she got to coin up and play so she thinks she knows what to change to get the other seat going. I am getting the board back today and if it worked she will repair the other 2 boards.

I replied this :

This one drive the three pcb (with a picture)
Check the voltage with and without the 3 personal pcb connected : +15, -15 and +5v
Give me your values please
This PS goes mad and can destroy one by one your personal PCB (input)


It looks that two from the three 'personal pcb' have an issue, and unfortunately the manual scanned doesn't include the schematics for the 'Personal PCB'  Undecided

Did you send them the manual? If not I can send it to them. Maybe I should try asking Namco directly for the schematics, I can talk to Namco on Facebook. I am sure anyone could talk to Namco on facebook too.

Is there any way to get the schematics from another manual if that could be found? There are a few different Namco system 21 games and theoretically they should all use the same boardset unless G3 has something special in it that no other game has.

I think its best to keep the communication going at this point.

Well over the past weeks me and Sara have tried a lot of stuff to try and save the very last Galaxian 3 in the USA... she's contacted Namco and got a reply! They are looking for the documents needed to fix the Galaxian 3, hopefuly they still have them! If they don't, possibly no-one else does  Undecided

We've also been looking into the Dave And Busters side of things to see if any of the locations have left over spares from the GT-6 to Air Raid conversions, haven't gotten far with this though but it could also work, who knows what they still have in their back rooms...

And speaking of Air Raid, I have been researching more about that, I found an old link to Tsunami's website which I had to go through the internet archive to access and... no mention of the Air Raid to Galaxian 3 conversions whatsoever!

Tsunami seem to have gone out of business around 2011 after some sort of a merger with Global V.R... and still absolutely no word on how the conversions came about... the only link to Namco I saw was a partnership they made in 2001 with their European branch.

But... we have got a few people to contact from their website if absolutely nothing else works. Surely they had the entire details of the theaters (including the schematics) if they were allowed to convert the theaters to Air Raid!

I am going to back to digging into this... I am continuing to try and reach someone at D&B, I know exactly who I need to reach but I need to find the person in person and speak to them face to face which means I have to catch this person at the location and its going to take me a while since I have to get there when the person is in.
