New pacman for atari 2600

Recommended Posts

Nukey Shay did do that! He made a three base missile command (using the second joystick I think) and added in the satellites. I just wish he had made the satellite option for the one base Missile Command... playing with two joysticks at one time is difficult!

I always wondered if someone could dig into Missile Command and add the satellites that are in the arcade version: "Arcade Missile Command" if you will for the 2600!

Ask and you shall receive!

Yeah I forgot about this one until you said that and I had to research my homebrew "List"! - Link above

Missile Command Arcade is awesome.  It also supports the Track & Field controller.

Does the level bug still exist? Can I reach level 256?

Ram $EE = level.  Rolls back to 0 (cherries) after 255...no glitch screen.

Since I'm playing the v8 version quite a bit it came to my attention there is a bit of crackling sound every once in a while. 

I tried other games as well different TV sets but it seems only related to that specific game... 

Could someone confirm? (no issue though, just interest... )

I was wondering if this has the "safe" space like the arcade? I tried it in the same general location in the maze and it doesn't seem to work for me.

Don't firget about havkem and ms hackem... ;-)

 

Pacman Collection for the 7800 simply reused the same engjne for all mazes with subtle tweaks between pacman and ms pacman modes.

 

Atari Pacman, Atari Ms Pacman, Hack em, ms hackem, Pacman arcade (ms pacman hack), debro pacman 4k, dintar new pacman 8k, that's seven right there.

Don't forget Nukey Shay's Pac-Man 8k. It's here on Atari Age somewhere. He took the original VCS Pac-Man, added real fruit, intermissions,correct colors, and points on the screen when you eat ghosts. It's pretty awesome.

Absolutely Awesome. One criticism being the red ghost is too fast, however it is not a big deal.

Fix for [Mister FPGA] (Atari 2600 core):

 

To get Dintar's pac-man to work in 'mister', you need to use this special .rbf file.  Just replace the existing .rbf for Atari 2600.  It has vblank options in the core.  This is an 'unofficial' build (adjusted just today in fact).

 

If you don't, it will not show video output, just sound.  A new challenge perhaps. :P

 

Here is the mister forum post discussing it: 

 

https://misterfpga.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=764&p=9916#p9916

 

It also fixes various other games.  I also tested 'princess rescue', and it also works.

 

------------------

Edit:  While not 'authentic' I really like using the setting:  'scandoubler fx':  HQ2x

 

Edit2:  Dintar's pac-man works in 'mist' fpga.

is there a good free emulator that will play this game?

Stella should do the trick. It is donationware. So if you use it and enjoy it you should consider throwing them a donation.

I keep losing the page where the most recent version is.  I'm just attaching it here for convenience.  This one features cornering.

 

This was posted on page 60 of this thread.

 

I named it similarly to the "Flashback Portable" post on atariage, in case that helps with compatibility.

Hello, here I am again, after 2 months, here is the test version with "cornerig" (finally!), it works fine (I think), I just need to improve it a bit.

 

 

 

 

DZ-jay, your method is difficult to apply here because it would require a lot of rom (many tables) for example I would need 4 times more rom for the "move delta" table (that is, 256), since my method uses 8 x 8 virtual tiles , thank you anyway for the detailed explanation, since it inspired me to make this possible.

 

 

 

 

 

Now it is also possible to increase the speed of the game with the right switch (in the "A" position the speed increases).

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy. :)

Would it be possible to get this on a cartridge?

Wow, somehow I missed that update from 2.5 years ago. Going to have to fire up the Atari today I guess!

Do we have a PAL60 version for the latest bin-File of Pacman 8K ?

I’m new here after an looong Atari hiatus. Thanks for creating this 8K version. I’m a physical media kind of guy - is there any way to get a cartridge of this?

Wow... I was floored when I first played the 4K version. This is just mind blowing as ever since the release of Pac-Man for the Atari back in the 80's, I had always just figured the console couldn't manage anything similar to the arcade game. I can't stop playing this and even during breaks from game play, I sit and watch the attract mode. 

 

I do know there was a cartridge for sale at one point. Not sure which version. Even if it isn't the ROM that is being circulated, I'd like to purchase one as well to support the effort. I haven't been this impressed with an Atari game since the first time I ever played Asteroids in my own home. Only thing missing is my mother telling me to give my little brother a turn. LOL!

Count yourself lucky.  I was an only child and had to compete with my data dad for Atari time.

Your dad? Or did you compete against a virtual clone of yourself, perhaps Tron-style?

HA!  Indeed, my dad.  Unfortunately my Tron-style clone never came to fruition, rather it sort-of fizzled out Automan style.

I wish I had a Data to compete with when I was a kid. I’d be much better today.

I bet he understands the 25% lose/win ratio necessary to encourage competition.
