7800 Super Pac-Man - I found the bug!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys:

 

I am posting my WIP for Super Pac-Man for the 7800. It is basically done, but there are two bugs that I am working on. One of them I need to figure out how to replicate consistently.

 

1) The HSC logo colors are wrong. Still working on that one

2) On the later levels, Blinky 'jumps'. If he is moving upward when he jumps, he leaves a 'piece' of him behind, until he re-enters the same row that the piece was left in. When you see it you'll understand what I mean. It only happens rarely, which makes it a very difficult bug to squash.

If any of you figure out how to replicate it consistently, please let me know.

 

NOTE - The above issue only happens on real hardware, not in emulation. :(

 

CC2 Setting:

NTSC

7800: Super Pac-Man SUPERPAC HSC_32K HSC

 

PAL

7800: Super Pac-Man PALSUPPM HSC_32K HSC

 

A HUGE, HUGE THANK YOU TO KENFUSED WHO HELPED ME THROUGH SOME OF THE MORE DIFFICULT BUGS

 

Let me know what you think! :)

Will it be for sale at Christmas? Because with the way the economy is going, I may need to take the money to buy it out of the bank while there are still banks to take the money from.

That looks pretty cool - a bit more colourful than the 8 bit version ( I prefer your ghosts )

I'm impressed with the effort. I gotta ask, how come the ghosts monsters don't look like Pac-Man Collection ghosts exactly? Does this mean that we can expect "Pac & Pal" eventually?

It crashed on me right when the HSC screen came up. This is right after the game ended and it should have prompted me for my initials. Is this related to the HSC bug you mentioned?

 

Otherwise everything looks good.

OK, it happened again. So that's twice in five or six games. I also had a little weirdness when I started a new game while the HSC screen was displaying, the background color was a dark color (I couldn't really tell what color) but not black. It stayed that way until I started a new game.

 

I also managed to see bug number 2 when Blinky killed me while he was traveling up.

 

Bob, would you prefer me to email you if I find more bugs or keep posting to this thread?

The HSC screen crashes if I have all 5 places filled and beat one of those scores.

 

Interesting, it seems pretty random for me. In fact it happened on the first game I played. Maybe different 7800s react in different ways.

Awesome... I always had a sweet spot for this particular game. I'll have to try this when I have a spare moment.
