    Hi Mark

    Small correction for the rules.

    In the rules clearly state PACMAN settings and PACMAN ROMS vs MSPACMAN settings and MSPACMAN ROMS.

    Under Tracks, you only list Pac-Man.

    Maybe list as follows:

    Tracks: Pac-Man

    ….. list of Pac-Man tracks

    Tracks: Ms. Pac-Man

    … list of Ms. Pac-Man tracls

     

    Pac-Man Settings:

    … List of Pac-Man seetings which include a 5+1 setting. Ms. Pac-Man do not have this

     

    Ms. Pac-Man Settings:

    .. List Ms. Pac-Man default settings

     

    Pac-Man ROMS:

    .. List Pac-Man allowed roms. Do we allow puckman and pacman for factory speed?

    List pacmanf and puckmanf or only pacmanf

     

    Ms. Pac-man ROMS:

    ROMS: Factory speed use mspacman.zip. Turbo speed use mspacmnf.zip (nothing else are allowed)

     

    Doing this then it is clear which tracks vs settings vs roms used

    I’ve not done the rules for Ms pacman yet

    but they will be the same as Tg as its only 3 live plus bonus at 10,000.

    if there is a puckmanf rom I’ve not seen one as puckman is the jap rom for pacman(midway)

    So it wouldn’t matter (to me at least) if you used that rom set.

    i play pacman on 3+1 settings ,at least till i get my first split-screen and think it should be tracked as it is the factory default settings.
