The most notable thing about this bootleg is that it has the same pinouts as a Midway Galaga board, but no 3-pin power connector on the CPU (But there is space for it if you wanted to populate it) and the monitor connections are on the card-edge instead of a separate 6-pin video connector on the Video board.

There are two banks of 8 switch dip-switches and they have the same settings as a normal Midway Galaga board.
