I think the issue is a combination between nasty bug and different memory layout triggering it.

WinUAE doesn't use the same memory layout... Damn.

The aim is to be able to play on a real amiga. On PCs we have MAME...

I haven't started my Amiga 500 in about 20 years. It may have a dead BIOS battery or something... or the capacitors in the power supply may be shot. Would like to test on it--it is an expanded one, but without FAT Agnus.

I'll work on getting it running again and then figure out how to help.

I think I found another bug. If you move the joystick in the attract mode demo you can take control of the game and start playing whilst it still says "Game Over"

Just tried the latest beta that DannyPPC put in the zone and it’s all good now on my A1200 with TF1230 68030 128mb.

It’s The WHDload version. Oddly the first version JOTD uploaded wouldn’t run at all but this one is fine for me now.

tested on A1200/060 still a few small issues but runs fine. Made me realize that the first game (Pacman) has similar bugs that I'll have to fix.

I will test on V4 and my A1200/060/PPC and report feedback here.

Thanks for your effort to debug both games.

Then maybe you can try to convert Jr Pacman too? Seems to be the hardest from Pacman trilogy(?).

I think MsPacman is a bit harder with smarter ghosts compared to Pacman but more rewarding, thanks jotd.

Sounds are still the Pacman ones, no moving bonuses, no intro sequence.

Send a message via MSN to alkis21
I'm probably asking something obvious, but where I can find the WHDLoad version? I can't see it on itch.io or whdload.de.
