Jr. Pac-Man

0.24 [Nicola Salmoria, David Caldwell]


- On the second level, sometimes a ghost or two will get trapped in the upper left-hand corner when you scroll the screen all the way to the right. This "feature" is true to the original game.


- 0.89u3: MASH moved Jr. Pac-Man (Pengo hardware) to the jrpacman.c driver - Game now playable.

- 0.88u3: Aaron Giles cleanup the Jr Pacman driver. Removed 'Increase Game Speed (Cheat)' dipswitch.

- 0.37b12: Changed VSync to 60.606060Hz.

- 0.37b3: Fixed sound1 with roms ($0, $100) and proms with ($0, $100, $200 - palette low/high bits and color lookup table).

- 14th May 2000: Guru - Dumped Junior Pacman with all the needed proms.

- 0.36b12: Added new sound prom (pacman.spr)

- 0.25: Added JrPacman speed cheat. It works in the same way of Pacman (thanks to Hugo Pi). Support for hiscore saving in Junior Pacman.

- 0.24: Nicola Salmoria added Jr. Pac Man (Bally Midway 1983). Decryption method provided by David Caldwell. Colors should be 100% right too. Hiscore saving not supported yet. Nicola also thanks Lee Taylor for help. The encryption PALs garble bots 0, 2 and 7 of the ROMs. The encryption scheme is complex (basically it's a state machine) and can only be faithfully emulated at run time. To avoid the performance it that would cause, here we have a table of the values which must be XORed with each memory region to obtain the decrypted bytes. Issues: Maybe decryption is not correct yet. For example in the third intermission the background is quite black and a line appear on left.
