The joystick looks pretty cool, neat idea with the pacman head.  Hope the gameplay is good....that's the question.

I gotta hand it to those Jakks designers, they know how to appeal to us! That pacman joystick knob... BRILLIANT!  Now everyone on BYOAC will want joystick shafts with balls like that!

And look at the side, they have a little mock coin slot and lock! Looks neat. Too bad Super Pac is not a great game. What else comes on this one? (They should fill it with weak sequels, like Hopping Mappy;D )
NO MORE!!

I don' t know...i kind of always like Super PacMan.  Maybe it's sentimental (1st arcade game i ever bought)....but also, it was kind of a neat sequel without rehashing the same old pacman formula over and over.  It's better than PacMan Jr at least....those mazes were huge, and the big dots slowed you down so much it made it no fun.

The ball top on that stick is very cool....i'd probably buy one myself for my MAME machine if anyone ever made them for BYOAC.  The article said regular pacman would be on it too along with some other variations of pacman previously unavailable....maybe Pac N Pal??  Maybe speed up pacman/mrs pacman?  With that stick, you could pretty much only put pacman related games on it.

I would like a joystick like that and im a bat fan myself.  Super pacman was a bit of a disapontment to me.  I only liked pacman and ms.pacman tho. I love the shape of the super pacman cabnet and the side art is cool.

What don't you get about "YOU CAN'T USE A FOLDER ON YOUR PC AND EXPECT US TO SEE YOUR PICTURE"?

Hit "reply", and click "Additional Options", Nostril-damus.  There, you'll find out how to attach your pictures.  I know this will be something completely new to you, so here's the additional steps.  Hit the "browse" button. 

If you can't figure it out after all that, then unplug your computer, detach all the wires, and put it out by the curb on trash pick-up day, because you're gonna hurt yourself otherwise.

Wel-come.  Try to pay attention when people give you information like PDB did.  He didn't say what he did because his fingers needed the workout.

You can upload them here.  I might add that if you play GalAga for hours a day, you might have once noticed the spelling of the game?

grabmyjoystick! - don't let em' get to ya on the pic posting thing...most people hose up the "hosting" part of posting a pic. (And I still screw-up making them linkable.) :laugh2:

Nice JAKKS cabinets by the way..... puts my PAC Jakks cab to shame. Mine is not 100% functional. Still trying to get my NTSC to RGB converter working with it to use the original monitor.

........ love the Super Pac JAKKS idea.  Looking forward to that one for sure.

Answer=6!..5)Where are the games located?..in the garage so he says,..(didnt turn out that way),......OK,...let me sum this up in a short story!,...seen the ad,..asked the questions,..and he wanted a total,...He wanted $200.00 bucks ,..so i said ok,..(sight seen only by a couple of pics),...so i didnt really know what i was in for,.. ??? this guy lives in long island,..about 1 hr away from me,..so i called a good friend to bring his small truck and some straps!,..My friend marc and I get there the same day,..a few hours later and i ask the guy,..(get this?...his name is OSAMA!) "hey osama,..where are the games?"..and he says in the backyard,...WHAT???? Backyard?? WTF! :cry: I felt like crying when i found out that they were under some open tent sitting on top of concrete, and had a huge tarp over it,..ok,..this is what he said to me over the phone,..they were in the garage,.and theres 6 machines, and 5 worked, and theres NO water damage,...this is what i got,....a backyard, 5 machines present instead of 6, And just the vaneer/formica was peeling off of them!,..(no damage to the bottom or inside! ;)  So i start pluging them in and nothing to 4 of them except scramble turned on,..at least i have 1 i can use as a example to guide me with the rest since they are all the same cabinets,..But I was pissed as hell to find out that "OSAMA" lied to me!  :hissy:  so i chewed him out for making me come down there to L.I. and spend my hard earned $$$ on this type of  :censored: but i knew that i remembered him saying to me that they were all complete inside!,..so i had hope!  :angel: and chopped him down on the price,..to $100.00 and we went back and forth for about 15 min,..and i finally gave in for $125.00,..

Just a quick note....these super pacman jakks games are out in stores now.  I have seen them at Target and Toys R Us.  I got one last night.  It's pretty cool.  It has super pac, pac N pal, pac man plus and pac man.  Excellent choice for games....only adding pac jr would have made it better.
