Thought I'd give Pac-Man Collection a whirl on BlueMSX, but I can't get these instructions to work:

 

    To run the game in blueMSX, first select File > Cartridge Slot 1 > Insert. In the Insert ROM dialog box, highlight the Pac-Man Collection rom file and then in the file ROM Type drop-down at the bottom of the dialog box, select ColecoVision MegaCart®. Then click on the Open button. (Ikrananka).

 

    Did you get Pac-Man working on the Blue MSX  J?

No, all I can manage to get is the "Turn Game Off Before Inserting Cartridge or Expansion Module" screen.

  Here's a quick video on how to load Pac-Man Collection for Blue MSX. I've tried the rom on both the Blue MSX and the CV Ultimate SD cart, both worked fine. Hope this helps.

Thanks...but very strange...I tried again and didn't change any settings and now it works.

  I've added the Mulligan Option for the season. If you miss a round due to real life situations, etc. etc., you can go back to a round that has ended and post scores. This is allowed for 1 round, 1 time,

 anytime throughout the season. Simply state that you are using your mulligan and post scores. Good Luck!

Slight improvement for me in Pac-Man (38,070 pts).  It's odd:  I can get over 100k with ease a different version of Pac-Man on the Colecovision (the AtariSoft prototype) and the NES versions; however, this version is way harder.

PacMan Prototype was one of my proposals for this HSC season. Maybe it will come   ;-)

PacMan Collection is too difficult for me.   :woozy:    

I would need an easy level with 5 lives.

   Ask and you shall receive. I've added the Atarisoft prototype rom (1984) as another bonus game. Medium setting. Enjoy!

Thank you very much, NCG!  :thumbsup:

This is a version, where I don't lose a life in every round.

 

By the way, this is one of the reasons because the Coleco is my favourite system. Game level 1 is often very moderate, so that even an average gamer can have a lot of fun.

I think the Atari systems are often more difficult. One great exception, as I saw your new avatar: Miner for the Coleco is devilish.

Very competitive round, a little more than 100k separating 1st and 4th place, you folks are working it!

Pac-Man Proto 57,640 (medium). Even on medium setting, this version does seem easier.

This was very difficult to do.  So annoying when you're trying to run from one maze to the next when it goes dark.  You spend so much time just fleeing and hoping you don't get hit.

Pepper II (skill 3):  253,650 pts.

Slight improvement on my score for Pac-Man in Pac-Man Collection.  Still way behind S.BAZ.  Don't know how you do it, Baz.  Kudos!

Pepper II  247,150 (Skill 3). I agree, it is tough, but that's what makes it fun. I originally was going to make the bonus score 500K, then 300K, both seemed a bit much. After playing I decided 200K   

                                      was a pretty decent challenge for Skill 3. First time I was finally able to crack 200K. Should have scored a little more, but im happy to get there. It is brutal. Numerous resets.
