Hello all, I hope you are all well.

So given the latest success we had with the castlevania the arcade cab preservation, we were wondering if we might make it a 2 for one.

We have a team as well as domesday duplicator specialists (for laserdiscs) standing by who would be interested in taking a look at the galaxian3/attack of the zolgear cab.

The idea would be to properly save the laser disks and dump the missing zolgear roms, so both galaxian3 and return of the zolgear might be completely preserved and in the future emulated under name.

We would gladly wish to reach the Agragames museum to discuss this with them but due to their opening having been shot due to the Covid outbreak, we are unsure of their status. Incidentally we could benefit from a direct contact with one of their members.

Could someone here like darthNuno maybe help us out with that?

I plan to visit Agragames museum as soon as the GT-6 will be reassembled, which is obviously not done yet. I doubt we could do something before, as they are very busy by now.

Interesting. Could you keep us in the loop when this occurs?

Maybe we could find a way to sweeten the deal for them, such as providing them with the rom and laserdisc image files for use as backup, and some repair or scavenging options for the machine.

I have indicated the thread to a number of people. They might drop by and give their two cents here.

Thanks for the answer DarthNuno. Maybe there?s a chance we might do something definite for this machine and preserve both galaxian3 and zolgear.
