it's getting closer to the release of dig dug which i will be getting.

however, if this really is the packaging, then there will only be 1 button
on each side of the stick, making it impossible to play dig dug 2...

I totally agree with the Pac-manned out comment.
Way too many different machines out now.
At least put some different games on the new devices.
I use glasses too. I do love some of the tiny arcades and it makes a big difference.

i'm tempted to get the pac-man countercade though,
only because it has the very rare pac n pal game on it though.

Think so? I have yet to see anything but the original 4 games show at any retailer around here.

After checking week after week at Walmart for other mini arcade games.
I have completely given up.

Ebay or Amazon all the way. Unless you want to wait for several months,
and even then if you are lucky.

The connectors for the drive are still there, so you should be able to add one back in:

#4242888 AtGames Officially Unveils Legends Ultimate Home Arcade (full-size machine)

If you need any additional QA testers, let us know. I'm sure we would have no problem signing NDAs...  :) 
Arcade1Up put together a decent product, but when they shipped out review units almost every single reviewer on Youtube gave a  :thumbsdown:  for the trackball, spinner and other things that were pretty easy to resolve. I am hoping the AtGames doesn't go through that process.

if they're using arcade quality parts, that won't be a problem.
which they said they are.

Details about the Space Invaders Cabinet from BerryBerry


The control panel now has the same printed+clearcoated vinyl as the side art, marquee, etc. Should last much longer than previous CP art. (But might be prone to the art being peeled up by "little hands". Best to leave to protector installed.)I think I prefer the original 1st-gen CP art (inkjetted directly on CP) after applying 3+ coats of sprayed-on clear, vs the new vinyl-applied-to-CP 2nd-gen CP art. Time will tell which ends up lasting longer. But as-shipped, 2nd-gen coming with a free protector is vastly improved over 1st-gen as shipped.

Protector is included in the box. It's a good fit. Holes aren't 100% centered, but are pretty close.

Control panel: https://i.redd.it/hpz427f4sjk21.jpg
Control panel w/ protector (film still applied): https://i.redd.it/7lt3l4wcsjk21.jpg
Joystick photos: https://i.redd.it/dqhkh22vrjk21.png

Still not real T-molding, but is the same pretty-good banding/edging used previously.(Clarification - I've looked at the control panel only. Haven't pulled the cabinet sides out of the box yet.)

Now a Sanwa-style joystick w/ 5-wire plug. Only has two microswitches installed on the circuit board, but all 5 wires are installed. Nice and crisp feel. Control panel joystick hole is now round (not a slot) and joystick has 2-way restrictor plate on the back. Easier to upgrade to 4/8-way stick - hole doesn't have to be enlarged. (Galaga had a CP slot and a regular joystick plate

from the toy show, here's more on the 1/6 scale arcade units.
they have some prototypes of asteroids, and dragons lair there also.


#4224410 How good are you guys at Galaga?

Posted by negative1 on Thu Feb 21, 2019 11:51 AM

hi guys,

thanks for the reference to this thread.
if you can practice it for a few weeks, you should be able to get to a 100k at some point.

as many have mentioned here:
1 get the dual ship
2 practice getting perfect on the first 2 bonus stages for 10k bonus


if you have access to MAME, get a ROM version that allows the no-shoot bug to practice:

you leave the 2 bugs on the left only, and let them fly until they stop shooting 10-15 minutes.

this REALLY helps a lot, since you only have to worry about them running into you.


once you feel confident, play with them shooting.

if you can get to levels 10-16, then you are 90% of the way done.
once you can get to 20-24 consistently, that's it, the game maxes out, and its just the same 4 boards over and over
forever.... if you can loop to 30, it will start over for the bonus levels.

the best tutorial to watch all the way through:
seriously, pay attention to the details for each stage, you don't have to memorize it,
you will just know them if you keep playing:

good luck,
