Never tried this before - via Altirra.

Took me a short while to find the right settings:

800XL

LLE Kernal

64K

NTSC
VBXE
VBXE memory
No Artifacting
Standard Video

Amazing conversion - seems 100% authentic. I did play the coin-op a lot, so it appears the same, even though I've only played one game and didn't get that far.
I guess this is the only way we'll ever see Galaga running. Must have been a lot of work to get this Moon Cresta up and running?

 

Yea, it's really well done.  I watched a YouTube of the original - I remember it when new, but it's been so long since I played it...this is a very accurate version.

 

Have to say, I'm not loving Altirra though.  I can't map the keys right on some games, and some I can't play.  I much prefer the Atari800WinPlus, but obviously without VBXE, I couldn't play Moon Cresta.

Stick with Altirra.  It takes a while to get used to some things which are done differently than Atari800Win+, but once you start figuring those out, you'll never switch back.  The key mapping should be 100% configurable, and I'm not aware of a single game that doesn't work on it.

Was a XEGS patch ever made?

And this:

+1 for non-VBXE version (may be on pure hi-res mode) :)

 

No chances for standard banking and ordinary Gr.8?
