    This doesn't appear to be an original ROM used. :-( I dont have any specific issue with it, because I have both this hack ROM and the original Atarisoft Ms Pac C64 ROM, and the game play after the Ms. Pac title screen seems to play identically. Just figured it warrants mentioning.

    Based upon what is this ROM not show its original? screenshots please? Also compare to Marco's submission he did for the WR? How is his video startup of the game different? How does the startup look like if original according your criteria. Please list the criteria.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa ... easy there, killer. You kinda seem upset and angry. Fear not ... you can quell your anger and frustration by ... get this ... reading the entirety of what I wrote.

    With regard to you questions:

    "Based upon what..." - based upon the well known hacking group that literally plastered their name all over the damned intro. I would haven't thought that it could possibly be more blatantly obvious.

    "Screenshots please ..." - Sorry. I'm nobody's errand boy. One need simply to review the first 90 seconds, and one does not require me to review it for them.

    "Compare Marco's WR ..." - Uh ... okay?

    "How is his different ..." - Uh ... it's not?

    "How does the startup [of the original look different] according to your criteria." - This question is based on the false premise that the criteria is "mine", but to answer part 1 of the question, the answer is simple: it doesnt have the hacking group's crap all over the screen for an intro. Again, I'd have thought this was obvious, and since it is, why the question?

    "Please list the criteria..." - Nah. I think I'll pass.

    At any rate, you are cordially invited to re-read what I wrote, and pay close attention to the second sentence, which as a courtesy to you in the event you are impaired, I will copy and paste heretofore:

    "I dont have any specific issue with it, because I have both this hack ROM and the original Atarisoft Ms Pac C64 ROM, and the game play after the Ms. Pac title screen seems to play identically."

    Now I have a question for you: What does the phrase "I don't have any specific issue with it" mean to you, and what do you feel that statement conveys? Just curious.

    You misinterpret my post. I am not angry at all. I am just asking to explain
    which has nothing to do with anger or emotion.

    The videos play so fast I do not see the difference. So that is why I ask for more detail.
    I do not see a hacker's name at all just the "blue water waves"....and then the game starts.

    Same with Marco submission " blue water waves" then game starts?

    I do not see the difference?

    Hi Garrett

    I honestly do not know the difference in the ROMS startup via the video vs Marco
    other than the option to select lives at startup ect.. which is the only strange thing.
    Apart from that it is the same?

    I have set the playback speed to 0.5 instead of moving fast.

    I have checked this Submission vs Marco submission (as an example) and both got the same
    introduction:
    -Blue waves
    -Intro by Jack Alien

    At this submission: Jack Alien is shown at 6:20

    At Marco Submission : Jack Alien is shown at: 30:59

    Please explain, I am open to learn, I am not an expert on this platform.

    Please confirm: If Jack Alien is the "recracker group"?

    Here is what I got:
    http://www.retrogames.com/062001.html
    "Do You Remember C-64 ? - Jack Alien and friends are together Remember, the famous C-64 "recrackers". Today is one of those rare days when they announce some new recracks at their homepage. They added highscoresavers to games which never had one, included the original titlescreens, typed the game docs and coded lots of trainers to the following new releases"

    http://www.bitte8bit.de/newremember/htdocs/releases.php

    How does now effect both submissions? A cancel and replay? Forum to decide?

    All I can say is for MAME original ROM have to be used......

    Stating what you have written.. just reading your method of writing one could derive you have some emotions with it. Let's leave emotions aside as I have not been angry nor irritated. Just wanted the info that's all.

    I think you owe me an apology:
    Look at my posts below. First time around I did not saw the "Jack Alien message", when set to 0.5 speed I did.
    Another thing its quick for you to answer without checking and assuming the video of Marco did not have the hacker message in.....

    To quote in your words:
    "it does have the hacking group's crap"

    In case I miss something.

    Have a great day and evening.
