PacMan noob :? .... fast play or slow ?
Sometimes you can go around or through the monsters on just a regular board. Case in point...the following video where I go around 2 of them before eating the center prize:

It was also one of the loudest machines in the Stargate Arcade.

It's not actually the quality of the machine, just how long it's left on. If it runs 24/7, the screen burn will show much quicker than if it's only on say 8 hours a day or less. Having it on free play will stop the maze and ghost names from burning in, but at the expense of having "Press 1 or 2 players to start" text burned in instead (and probably much quicker too, since the screen won't be changing at all unless someone is actually playing)

I would probably play some MTT's online once in a while. But the fact that our corrupt lawmakers in WA have made online poker a felony in our state (though no one has been prosecuted). Combined with the uncertain nature of funding (I lost funds in both the Netteller incident, and the more recent collapse of Full Tilt) prevent me from playing online. Much of my advantage comes from sizing people up getting a feel for where they're coming from. Online most of this is lost, replaced with stats, HUD's and multitabling setminers. It sucks the fun out of it for me. Sorry for the rant, I used to like online poker but it's changed a lot in the last ten years. I just enjoy live poker so much more.

No, you have the right Pac-Man set, but you have the speed up chip (located at 6F) installed on the board.
I've never been a fan of any modified version of the original Pac Man.
It's such an absolute classic that should never be touched. It's like modifying a classic car with big alloy wheels or spoilers. It just doesn't need or deserve it.
