The second

高圧注意
サービスマン以外の方は扉をあげないで下さい。内部には高電圧部分があり、万一さわる危険です。

Attention : haut voltage
Veuillez ne pas ouvrir la trappe, sauf sous le contrôle d'un technicien. Des composants soumis à un courant de haute tension s'y trouvant, vous vous exposeriez au danger en les touchant.

OK, I've got a new picture, but the indications are almost gone... hopefully, it's still possible to read  Tongue

Click on this picture for the full size version :


So we have here :

品名            / Product Name  : THEATER (If I zoom on the picture, I think I can even read THEATER 6 but not sure  Huh?)
定格電圧 AC  / Voltage AC      : 100 V
定格周波数    / Frequency       : 50/60 Hz
最大消費電力 / Maximum Consumption Output : 1400 W
最小消費電力 / Minimum  Consumption Output : 1000 W
最大電流      / Maximum Amps   : 19,0 A
最小電流      / Minimum Amps    : 15,0 A
製造元        / Manufactured by : NAMCO LIMITED
製造年月     / Manufactured in : 93 but note the two symbols : 934月 ... means 93 (year) 4(month) ?

For the second indication :



高圧注意
サービスマン以外の方は扉をあげないで下さい。内部には高電圧部分があり、万一さわる危険です。 :

Caution : High Voltage !
Don't open the door expect under the control of a technician. High voltage components inside can hurt you if you touch them


For this one :



機器番号  / Serial Number    : 223 - 205

Very interesting. What does it means ? Is it the number 205 for a total of 223 Theater worldwide ?

I think...
223 : type number (Ex. PACMAN,Galaga,Galaxian3 )
205 : S/N   (this is 205th)

if it is number 205 for a total of 223,  we often use "205 / 223" .


Ikke said,
"this is Asset management number, I think.
I often see this panel with a Game machines other than made by Namco at Game center of Namco.
and I don't see this panel with Game machines by Namco at Game center that is not Namco."

...so I presume it's not the true serial number of this Theater, but only a kind of 'inventory' number given to all the game located in some Namco Game Center  confused

Ok, that's interesting anyway... I got this Theater in Belgium and I know it was Namco UK who assembled it back in these days. So maybe Namco Japan sent the Theater directly to Belgium and required official Namco technicians to come from Uk (I don't thing there was any official Namco office in Belgium) in order to assemble it ? Anyway, I have the email of one of the two technicians in UK who assembled my theater so many years ago  Tongue I'll send him a mail with a link to this topic, maybe he can help us on this  Wink

An other thing that can prove my G3 is a Japanese model : I have several pictures of Galaxian Theater coming from US, by example this one :



...and as you can see, the outside colors are blue & grey ... but my Theater's colors are blue & yellow, like the pictures I saw from Galaxian Theater in Japan... by exemple the one of Ikke and his friend (maybe it you, Tom#2, the second owner of the 'beast' ?  Tonguearrow Blue & Yellow.

Many thanks for all these precious informations  Kiss ...the story is not over of course  Cool

I saw GT-6 in Niagara in Canada in 1998.
An outside color was a gray. The chair was different shape.

What we have, and GT-6 in the photograph of DarthNuno is the same type, and a color. The character of the signboard has been changed from Japanese to English. Perhaps, GT-6 for Europe might have been made in Japan. And, it is thought that GT-6 for US/Canada is what Namco in the United States made it. Therefore, it is thought that the color and shape are different.

Yes, here pictures for the GT-6 located at FunWorld (Nashua New Hampshire USA) :



The seats are not the same than the Japanese model  arrow





So I would say the GT-6 in Europe were the same version than the Japanese one. The US version has some little differences (color of the sides, shape of the seats, and maybe other things ? )

Ok I've looked ad some Namco game I have....
Motocross GO!  308-959 (1997)
Motocross GO!  308-940
Panic Park        316-543 (1997)

So far the teory of model-serial seem good, BUT

Rapid River       308-581   (1997)

We got 308 again... it's somthing strange....

All my game came from asian area (some from Japan some from Taiwan)

I don't know what it is... Game build in Italy or Europe under license from Namco did not have that plate.
All but Panik Park have also a sticker (with another code) that tell the game is an "Namco Original product" or somethink like that.

See ya ANY
