Yeeeeehhhaww!!!  Cool

Awesome catch! Ms Pac Man & Galaga are almost impossible to find here in Europe, except if you import them directly.

I'm happy to see you didn't miss the opportunity to catch them'  Wink Congratulation, and welcome to you and other owners to the "Ms Pac Man / Galaga owners club"   Grin Smiley

Thanks for the story  Kiss

For immediate release of course  arrow



Holy Jesus! Such pictures are usually done in USA, where you can find "easily" these cabinets... but... you're pictures are ... done in Europe! Awesome  Wink

Thanks Ckong, thank you for the warm welcome at your place. We just arrived back safely. The cabs are at the moment in my livingroom  Wink, where we are eating a snack and drinking beer.
We still can't believe we are the new owners of such beautiful classics! I just transfered the remaining amount of money.

BTW you have a very friendly wife and a nice house, although if you try to find it when it's dark and really snowy outside, you might get lost  roll eyes lol

I went to the storage today to pick up an Egret 3 which I have for sale. Of course I just had to check out pac-man and galaga again. I seem to remember that both games were not working after I collected them at Paul's place, Galaga was totally dead and pac-man showed a lot of 'gargle' on the screen, so today I took out the game boards to see at home if they work properly (on a jamma cab with an adapter) and if they could be the problem. Funny thing is that on the game board which was inside the pac-man, there is a sticker which mentions 'Super Ms. Pac-man'. I googled for it, but I couldn't find any info on it. There is no daughter board, but there seems to be some kind of hack done on the board. I will post pictures of it later.

I did take some detail pictures.

Is this pac-man cab really nr 199! I mean, there were thousands built.





Who is PACKMEN? Never heard of him.  Huh?



Just some more pics, because I love it.

Yeah, that's funny. IIRC Packman is also used in the manuals. Guess they had decided to change the u in Puckman, but didn't drop the k yet....

VERY nice low serial number, wow !!! Thousands built ? How about 100.000 ?  shock
