my Ms Pac game list
« on: March 24, 2019, 10:29:08 am »
here is the list of games I am thinking of adding to the Ms Pac I am modding from a 1UP PAC-MAN
01) burger time = btime <---- mame name of parent rom.
02) dig dug = digdug
03) donkey kong = dkong
04) donky kong 3 = dkonk3
05) donkey kong jr = dkongjr
06) Mr Do's castle = docastle
07) frogger = frogger
08)  galaga = galaga
09) galaga 88= galaga88
10) galaxian = galaxian
11) Jr PacMan = jrpacman
12) mappy = mappy
13) Mr Do = mrdo
14) Ms PACMAN = mspacman
15) Pac-Man= pucman & pacman
16) Pac-Mania = pacmania
17) Pac&pal = pacnpal
18) PacMan Plus =pacplus
19) pengo = pengo
20) phoenix= phoenix
21) super pac-man = superpac

well.. how is my game list? 4 way limited action buttons?

I modded my A1UP pacman, and added 1 button. I moved the joystick to the left and added a button where the joystick hole is. I have a couple game suggestions:

If using 2 buttons, one of my favorites is Astro Blaster
If you can deal with a horizontal screen: Tapper and ZooKepper are both a lot of fun
If you can deal with single player only and a horizontal screen: Joust and Mario Bros
Some other decent 4 way games: Eyes, Ladybug, Crush Roller, Bomb Jack, Qix and Mr. Do (Castle is good, but I like the original a bit more)

I'd like to put a little more emphasis on ZooKeeper. It's fun and a game I put on my vertical machine, despite playing horizontal. It really wants a 4 way because diagonals freak it out.

It is a great game.  It seems like it should be a 4-way game but is technically an 8-way.

I wonder what game Iím thinking of then and when do you use diagonals? Iím going to put it on my 8 way machine again.

You know those 60 in 1 boards that used to be popular?  Look up those... most of those games play well on a pacman with a button or two.

Thatís what I originally did but they got some stinkers on there. Arkanoid, centipede, time pilot, gyruss, etc.

My bad. I meant, itís not setup for 4 way games. Besides, we all know time pilot should have been a spinner game.

Yeah I need to either try that patch you posted a while back or get a dedicated Time Pilot.  It is one of my all-time favorites but I am not happy with how it plays with my U360 joystick.

To be honest, I don't think you will like it with a spinner. It feels like a game genie mod. If the game was designed with a spinner in mind, it would be a preferred option.

Zoo Keeper is 8-way all the time, not just the bonus levels. You will find that it is far easier to round the corners in the main game with an 8-way.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.

My DK+ is all 4-way 1 button games.  Jumping Jack (kind of fun) and Lady Killer (it's not kid friendly though but my kids don't care) come to mind.

Also, Atari's Tetris is a blast even though it is horizontal.

Apologies if this is a dumb question but were you able to get Tetris to run on a vertical monitor?  My daughter would love it if I could get that to play on her Fix-it-Felix cabinet. I just assumed it would not play and haven't tried it.

Not a dumb question - I'm hoping someone has an answer.  Unfortunately, I run it in horizontal mode - it is the only horizontal game I have on my 4-way vertical cab.  It's just too good to pass up.   :cheers:

Hmm.... you'd think that where the Tetris gameplay area is more vertically oriented there would be a vertical version of Tetris floating around somewhere.

. . . unless you're running 0.133u1 or newer.
Quote
- 0.133u1: Renamed (atetcktl) to (atetrisc), (atetckt2) to (atetrisc2) and (atetrsb2) to (atetrisb2).

Parent ROM for both cocktail set ROMs is Tetris (Set 1) by Atari Games.  (atetris)

Completely forgot about that - I now remember making the call that the horizontal oriantation bugged me less than the right 1/2 of the screen being upside down.... but I may need to rethink it.

Good call!  I forgot about that one.  Be interesting to see how well it plays on a Nintendo joystick.
