I don't remember changing it. It was probably just a mistake. I'm open to updating it if you make those changes.

Actually, I think I'm remembering it backwards. It looks like you may have just changed the color of Pac-Man in game and then I had expected change to be propagated into the title screen. Either way, the colors should be matched and it's an easy change. I also think I'm using a different red on the title, which should probably match the in game color too.

 

I'll see about getting the motion lines added. I think my idea was to composite the motion lines from the cabinet artwork and marquee together -- but added only to the characters.

I'll soon have 15 more carts available.  They are $41 shipped priority mail in the US.  I'll have to quote shipments outside US but expect it to be $5 to $10 more.

 

PM me to order.  Thanks!

Latest batch of carts are ready!  They are $41 shipped in the US.  For outside the US, I'll have to lookup the shipping and quote.  The orders I just took for the UK were $23 to ship, so it might not be cheap. PM me to order.
 
edit: I was off by 1 oz on the package weight when I calculated shipping, which made a big difference.  Shipping to UK dropped to $13 when I took off that oz.

Sure, when I get at least 5 orders.  The wait list in the first post is currently empty, but I can add your name.

I am very glad you added the saving notice... most people don't realize a save into flash takes a small amount of time.... the notice is something that might need to be added to the tempest and honestly space harrier lines.... while I have not turned off the games during a save, my friends have almost done so..... that might explain why people like kjmann and peteym scorn the carts... it didn't occur to either of them to add a notice or check to make sure writes were successful or that a user should be notified to wait for the save to happen....

 

once again you common sense approach to things wins the day TEP392 ;)

Thanks,  I had a few people tell me that their high score was corrupted and when I looked into it, it appeared that the flash was erased to FF's but the new score wasn't saved.   I couldn't make it happen unless I interrupted the save, so I added the notice just in case someone is quick to shut off the computer at the end of a game.

I don't mean to sound like a fussy and demanding twit, but I'll buy another one if you can make a run with translucent yellow or pink cases! I already have two of the blue. :)

My original desire was to make the cart in yellow, but Atarimax didn't have that color.  I think they only had blue, red and green available.

I have translucent yellow filament for my 3D printer.  It's a real PITA to work with.  Brittle stuff.

I had a suggestion for pac-man arcade, an idea i was thinking would be a simple hack:  change the pupils of the ghosts eyes from being the color of the ghost to just being see through.  in other words, instead of filling in their pupils with color, just make them holes.  then, the background (which is mostly black) will shine through...

I thought the same thing.

I may be wrong but I believe the white part of the eyes is a wide missile behind the eye area of the ghost, so you can't just poke a pixel sized hole through it.
