Pacman disappears from list when filter is on "no clones"
#366056 - 05/15/17 09:12 PM


Hi,

Everything is on the title.

I have the complete MAME rom set 0.185 but when I check "clone" from the filter gui, pacman is removed.

Like if there were only clones available for pacman...

Is this true ?

Thanks

Regards

jpettit

Pacman is a clone that was distributed by a 3rd party (Midway) It wasn't distributed by the original developer with that title.

The original game, as distributed by Namco, the original developer, is Puckman

It's doing exactly what you tell it to.

Actually, I recently was wondering the exact same thing (but didn't care enough to ask around about it).

I never realized that Pacman actually was a clone; I always assumed it to be an original title. Thanks for sharing that piece of information.

Also: Apparently, 'Blinky', 'Pinky', 'Inky' and 'Clyde' are actually 'Akabei', 'Pinky', 'Aosuke' and 'Guzuta'.

Namco is a Japanese gaming company, of course their original names are going to be Japanese.

That's blindingly obvious, man.

He was referring to the names of the ghosts, not Pacman himself. Puckman's name was only changed in English because someone on the marketing team at Namco USA at the time noticed that and it was promptly changed afterwards.

The potential for cabinet vandalism was too high apparently.

Probably a good call since there were always lots of Lil' Dullies running the arcades at the time...



Pessimist: Oh, this can't get any worse!
Optimist: Yes, it can!

I was only kidding around. (Granted, probably not my best work)

But I guess that was not blindingly obvious, man.
