I've been scratching my head lately with this cocktail game. I bought
the game originally not working but since then have video and can play
the game (kinda). The problem is I don't believe its the right version
of space invaders in the game.
The version of space invaders that was in the cocktail was Midways Space Invaders. After noticing the screen would not "flip" for second player,
I tried changing the dip switch settings. This did not help. I then
found on the internet the Midway Space Invaders Deluxe roms (says part
II on the opening screen) and put this into the cocktail. Again I could
play the game but the screen would not flip. Then I noticed something
very strange. On the instructions for each player it says something
about playing SIMULTANEOUSLY (sp?)! I have never heard of a version of
space invaders that could be played this way. Since my game never came
with the original roms to begin with, I can only ponder if I am
interpreting the instructions correctly.
My gameboard says it can be used for space invaders II cocktail and the mainboard says 2X k. (whatever that means.) My question is did Midway
ever make a simultaneous (again sp?) head to head version of this game?
If so, could somebody tell me where I might find these rom images? Were there two versions of Space Invaders Part II or two versions of Space Invaders Deluxe?...were these the same game?...I'm confused? If this is
a real game the did they make many (Midway and Taito)? Thanks for
