Gaplus Save High-Score
Gaplus ! The follow up to Galaga, a lot faster and harder. In my very biased opinion it's nice, but it's not Galaga. The boardset is a quite a compact multi-layered board so I WOULD NOT ADVISE DESOLDERING THE RAM CHIP unless you're really good at desoldering. Just cut the legs off the thing, desolder the remaining pins one at a time and solder in a new socket.You wouldnt want to damage the boardset !
There's also a hack for Galaga 3, which was the Midway license of Gaplus, but I dont have a boardset so I've got no idea WHICH RAM is the one to replace ? If anyone can shed any light on the subject let me know.
All three ROMs need to be changed to save the high-score table.
Strange fact... if the default high-scores are set to zero, then the demo mode actually clocks up points ! I guess this is a 'bug' of sorts in the original game, this is why the default score is set to 10,000 points ( which is really pretty easy to get ). I've set the default scores at 5000 points.
1. Save high-score
2. Scores start at 5,000pts.
