FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What board types will this kit work with?
This kit (initially) only works for the Midway black and white monitor style game. The board set can be either Space Invaders or Space Invaders Deluxe. The board set consist of 2 pcbs in an L shaped configuration. Boardset View Boardset View 2

I hope to some day offer this kit for the Taito color monitor style game (3 pcb board set stack).

Will it work in my cocktail game?
Yes it should, as long as it is a Midway black and white style cocktail and not the color taito version. It should be noted that the game software is unaware of whether the game board is installed into a cocktail cabinet or an upright cabinet, and that differences (strapping options) on the sound/input pcb of the boardset determine if it is configured for cocktail or upright. Additionally, the cocktail screen flipping function is done by relays in the monitor itself which will swap the yoke wires.

What are the differences in the real games versus the multigame?
Good question. The answer apart from the extra features (such as free play, diagnostics, and high score save), would be sounds. I only own SI and SID games, so I'm not sure at this point how different the sounds are for the other games. All sounds are mapped onto the 8 available sounds that your SI/SID boardset provides. The sounds for SI/SID are close to identical.

Additional configuration options have been added that were not available on the original games. Such as more options for number of laser bases and extra score levels for bonus awards including no bonus awards.

Some games have extended scoring which was not part of the original game
