Hi all ! Although I am a long time user, this is my first post.
Posting this here because the Arcade64 forum seems to have disappeared. I really hope the project has not been cancelled.
I noticed that the venerable Galaxy Game, one of the earliest coin-op video game http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/?mame=galgame is not listed in latest Arcade 0.249.0
It seems to meet the usual inclusion criteria and was listed in MAMEUI 0.248.0
Can I please hope that it will appear in a future version ?
Thanks.

I could never get that game to start playing. If you know how, do tell.

Well, I just played it.

It uses the default controls, nothing special.

I use an azerty french keyboard but this is what it should be on a qwerty one:

5 = coin

left-right arrows/CTRL/Alt = select level

left-right arrows = P1 spin left/right

CTRL = P1 fire

Alt = P1 thrust

Space = P1 hyperspace

D-G = P2 spin left/right

A = P2 fire

S = P2 thrust

Q = P2 hyperspace

That's an antique, it is completely silent but it is the very first dogfight game.

After a bit more button mashing I was able to get it to play.

The first problem is there's 4 settings on the screen which can't be adjusted. One of the them specifies 2 players, so therefore you need at least 2 coins in.

If you know how to adjust those settings, tell me.

Another bug I noticed is when F3 is pressed it's supposed to reset the game but instead it goes completely black.

If the settings can be adjusted then I'll add it.

OK, those things are in the dipswitches. So the game can be played and I'll add it now.

So if you want to play single player, go to the dips and choose single player. Then it will all work as expected.

Sorry, I'm a bit late on this one but life forced me to focus on other things.

I always thought that the game was two player only, even if the menu was a bit confusing...

Thanks for adding it, it's a real pleasure to find a dev as reactive as you.
