We stumbled across yet another ancient bootleg of Galaga with 36 pins.
We checked on the Internet and on Wiretap, and found nothing on a 36 pin
version, so we sat down and decided to figure out exactly what the pinouts
and dipswitch settings were.  Here they are, I hope other people will find
a use for these pinouts on the rare 36 pin version.

Parts                      Solder

Sync                A|1

1P Right            E|5   +12V
1P Start            F|6   2P Start
Coin 1              H|7
                    J|8   +5V
                    K|9   +5V
                    N|12  Test Switch
Audio -             S|15  Audio +
GND                 T|16

NOTE:  There are obviously a few things missing here.  If you find the
       Cocktail table pin let me know.  There is probably a 2P Joystick
       also, but in the Upright mode, you just take turns with the same
       joystick, so I am unsure of what it would be.

We hope this will help other people who have maybe found another one like
this.  Like I said, we have never seen or heard of one like it until now...
