    Hi all!
    I just picked up an original Pac-Man stand up. However, the speed appears to be extremely fast. How do I ensure it is at factory settings? Do chips need to be looked at / replaced? - OR - is it just a dip switch setting?

    Let me know please - as I want to attempt to get on the leader boards with a score. Any advice on posting a score to Twin Galaxies is also apprecited.

    Thanks friends,

    Look at the rules under pacman turbo speed says something about a rom chip in 6f being replaced. You could go for a turbo record

    Hi

    There are two things you should look at:
    First is the ROM chip at position 6F, for standard speed vs turbo speed the content of the ROM differ. This mean if you
    want to play standard speed Pac-Man you must get a standard speed Pac-man 6F ROM.
    You can buy standard and speedup version at TwistyArcade:
    Speedup version:
    https://www.twistywristarcade.com/pr...eedup-rom.html

    Standard version:
    https://www.twistywristarcade.com/pr...rd-6f-rom.html

    To replace be very careful that you do not bend the chips. If you are close to an arcade shop rather ask them to replace it for you.
    Do this while the machine is switched OFF. Not ON.

    Secondly:
    To get a perfect pac-man on maximum settings, the dipswitch settings must be set such that the
    game provide to you FIVE pac-man men, with an extra at 10,000 instead of the standard THREE + 1.
    Dip switch settings can be set using a small flat screw driver.

    I can make a replacement EPROM if you need it.
    William R. was right.
