"I know it's not my place but I have to add this;

Crying friends aside, his argument makes total sense to me. During the military dictatorship import of anything was either forbidden or taxed so high that you would just forget about it. That's why we have all these funny old clone products here. Up until the late 80's there were no foreign cars, it was forbidden to import a car, in order to "protect the national economy" you were (and still are - the import taxes down here are sky high) supposed to buy Brazilian made stuff.

Galactica was made by some random Brazilian programmer, working with what he had lying around. It's a mystery how they got these 8080 boards down here in the first place, it would have been illegal to import them from the US. Maybe Taito do Brasil imported them in pieces. I know they used to do that with engine parts from GM.

The PCB stack seems to be cobbled together from leftovers from other 8080 games. The boardset is full of wire jumpers and other modifications and it's a wonder that it works at all. Fact is that the code is there in the ROMs to take advantage of the extra hardware when it's present - and I don't believe that they would have imported the parts, or spent the man hours, here in Brazil, as it was at the time, making it play that sound effect, if they were never going to sell it with that aux sound board. It just doesn't make sense.

It seems to me that Galactica was developed to run on the Indian Battle boardset (using the same aux board that plays the three little indians tune) and if that wasn't available, it would run on whatever 8080 hardware that was.

Imagine this scenario - what if Taito Do Brasil was somehow given..or got a great deal on a shitload of Indian Battle or other 8080 boardsets from Taito US or Taito Japan, arriving in a container along with pinball parts..or marked as "trash", because the game was not turning a profit? Maybe they set out to make their own hit game that could run on these surplus boards."





MARAVILHOSO comentário!!

Retrata fialmente A REALIDADE!!

Sune, tem certeza que você SÓ TEM 6 ANOS de BRAZIL??

Sensacional!!


Olha, eu disse a verdade sobre o meu amigo TER chorado, não quis com isso deixar o topico "PIEGAS" nem tentar OBTER RESPOSTAS usando a tatica do melodrama, acredite, eu EXPRESSEI o que eu sinto e o amigo em questão é o Anderson que, assim como EU e o Augusto, esta na expectativa de OUVIR todos os sons novamente.
Mas agora quem esta chorando sou eu, e não ME ENVERGONHO DISSO...

Ser CRIANÇA naquela epoca era muito dificil e só quem VIVEU e passou pela DITADURA MILITAR sabe o quanto a gente sofria..

Eu devo te dizer que INDEPENDENTE de eu CONSEGUIR ou NÃO este objetivo da emulação MAME/Funcionamento hardware original, QUERO QUE SAIBA QUE VOCÊ GANHOU UM AMIGO a qual poderá contar sempre que precisar de algo.

Muito Obrigado pelas palavras e COLOCAÇÔES em alto nivel expostas aqui.

Abraços e fique com Deus, pois ele sempre coloca algo de bom no NOSSO caminho e pessoas do bem sempre acabam se encontrando.

Até mais
