WTB: Galaga 88 PCB
« on: July 27, 2012, 03:36:03 PM »
Hello everybody!

First I´d like to introduce myself. My name is Stefan, 41 years old.... male! ;)
I run a videogamestore in my hometown Trier/Germany for 13 years now and I am a big fan of this board although I kept silent for most of the months and years here.

I was hoping to find a Galaga 88 Jamma-Board... but as I found out lately those little babies are hard to get.
That´s why I came here today. Maybe someone here has an idea how to get one.

I´d be very thankful for any help i can get.

Greetings from Trier
Stefan

of course I will, Michael. I have to put it in my sitdown cab. it used to run a 60in1 till now... and that leads me to aproblem I did not think about so far... the 60in1 has vga and audio-out. the galaga 88 does not have those features. i guess i will take the sound from the jamma harness... but what about the vga output? a total newbie-question for sure... but is there an easy solution to my problem? :)

and by the way... what a coinsidence with your last name. :)

....  my problem now ist how to connect ist to vga. anybody with a very simple solution for an absolute beginner? :)

first, welcome here.

second, there is a simle answer, you can´t  :o

Galaga´88 is a 15K lowres game, it doesn´t output VGA signals.

The only solution to use it on a VGA monitor is to hook up additional devices, like a cga2vga scaler and a sync splitter. And of course a SLG3000 for the scanlines. You can check out Bencao74´s website for more info about that.

But please don´t use thta equioment, you don´t really want to use a VGA monitor. The game is intended to use with a 15K monitor, so why not hook up one of those?

But to be honest, I am a bit amazed that you thought that you could hook up a Galaga ´88 PCB directly to a VGA monitor! Obviously you didn´t do a lot of research on forehand.

By the way, the price of a Galaga ´88 board has increased extremely over the last few years, I sold mine little than two year ago for € 120!!! And still made a little profit!!!  ::) I know now that I should have kept it.

I just get about 50 games together for a container from the US to EU later this year. So if you want to join in here is the thread:

http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=3726.0

The Galaga 88 that was offered to me would be about $450 shipped to the warehouse in the US. Add another $150-200 for shipping to Bremerhaven, Germany and €50 fee for me and that should be about what it would cost you. The other games you mentioned are possible to get there too.
