Pac-Man emulator for CPC
« on: 01:01, 02 April 12 »
Yes, it was not an April fool. :)

You can download here the first release of the Pac-Man emulator for Amstrad CPC with 128K of memory.
This emulator is based on the work by Simon Owen for SAM coupé and ZX Spectrum.

You need to provide your own ROM files to play Pac-Man and clones with it.
Please, read the readme.txt file for more informations.

EDIT:
V1.01 Add the FAQ. No emulator change.

I've put the Mame pacman roms into the dsk, but it doesn't seem to work. I get a black screen in WinApe.
Here is the dsk I used with roms included.

edit: dsk removed as requested. I'll try to fiddle with file options as you suggested.

It's not autorized to ditribute ROM. Please, for you, remove your DSK.
The 4 files needs to be binary with AMSDOS header and properly renamed to work :)

Still can't make it work  :(

Here is the content of the dsk I made with WinApe.
Do you see something wrong there?

Sure, looking the window I see you don't check the "Add AMSDOS header" before importing files.
So, they don't appear as "BINARY".

Thank you.

puckman (NAMCO) and pacman (MIDWAY) are fully supported.
hanglyman look to work nice too... May be, all clones using the same gfx bank.
ms.pacman don't, because it's not a puckman clone.
