So far i’ve been going from experience and taito schems whcih help with circuit layout irem seems to have copied taito pretty much entirely on the audio circuits.

Like most of their contemporaries, the company’s initial purpose was to produce invsder rent out electronic leisure machinery to various sections of the entertainment industry. Dropbox, SkyDrive, or Google Drive share. However after fixing all the sounds, and then triggerign them in-circuit using my fluke they are all there, but the game code doesn’t appear to trigger the UFO noise at all, even though its there and works perfectly under cpu control.

IPM Invader was a crude and shameless copycat of Taito’s milestone, but yet the sheer popularity of arcade rooms at the time saw the game do well enough to convince the company that games were a viable business opportunity.

Here is the file 13MB: So we need to find where these syncs come from, go get your pcb and look here: Firstly, the pinout i found online was incorrect in a few areas, so i’ve copied and modified it so it is now accurate. If you already downloaded it, please grab the new imp. Anyone else have any issues? Don’t be so humble If i can write to the address through the cpu socket, then thats all the game does when its running, so it should be one and the same.


My changes are in yellow: Awesome been searching for this for a long time, much appreciated: The ‘coffee break’ is a unique feature in IPM Invaders whereas after every 3rd wave iom pattern of invaders, the ‘coffee break’ appears. Maybe the acrobat reader version you have is old? Yeah that be me: Known as the poor mans version of ” Space Invaders “.

IPM Invader

While looking into a recent repair, i noticed others asking about how to hook this game up, and that it seemed to be more common in Australia than elsewhere: So we simply join the two NAND inputs to our source, to give us an inverted output. If anything it could almost be considered poor: You’ll know you have the new one if the front cover is beige rather than greyscale.

Amazing, what a gem: Oh yeah, have a nice day: Good stuff, nice neat fix, hate to see boards with Sinclair-esque dead cockroach style fixes with chips splayed and spliced in. If you like this, like irm page on facebook for more interesting and techy arcadey iirem To do this, we can join the NAND gate in the following manner to turn it into an inverter like this: It is like “Space Invaders”, with identical graphics.

Also features a ‘coffee break’ between waves! The place I worked at imported at least tables of these directly from Japan – they also got another type from Korea but the name escapes me It uses a color monitor instead of a black and white monitor with a color overlay.


The ‘capsules’ cannot be destroyed until they hatch, and are dropped across the screen to defeat the players ‘narrow column’ strategy.

Most space invader pcbs and clones suffer from missing sounds, and the pcb i have in front ire me is no exception. Irem was founded in as ‘IPM Corp.

Released in January What would be the best way to share this file in a permanent manner?

For their first few years, Irem’s output was average at best. Also, probably futile asking, but does anyone have the schematics for this pcb set? It’s possible it didn’t download properly, so it iipm be worth downloading it again.

These days you are likely to want to play this game in a JAMMA cabinet or other monitor with more ‘normal’ sync, which means it needs ipn be composite negative sync. Another unique feature in IPM Invader is the ‘capsules’.

You might find these interesting Andrew. I have replaced the Invadr file with a much higher quality scan. So far i’ve been going from experience and taito schems whcih help with circuit layout irem seems to have copied taito pretty much entirely on the audio circuits I have the same board as on your website, can tell you I have the UFO sounds. Without schematics, its a time sucker right now.

Please chime in if you have any ideas regarding which boardset this manual was intended for.
