    - Sometimes the colours on the first level appear incorrect until you either die or finish the level. The original game does this as well, although it doesn't happen very often. It appears that this is triggered by insert a credit and pressing start at a certain point in the attract mode. Because most people add credits shortly after the game has finished booting up, this feature is more likely to appear in MAME than on an actual arcade machine.

    - 1st June 2012: Smitdogg - Next up in the box, well from the initials written on it it's some form of Ms. Pac-Man but hardly anything matches currently dumped roms so.

    - 0.128u4: More accurately describes the aux board behavior for Ms. Pac-Man [Steve Golson]. There is a thorough description of how the board works. mspacman is a more faithful emulation. In particular you can now enter service mode (F2) at anytime during game play.

    - 0.126u3: David Haywood changed unmapped read for Ms. Pac-Man to see if it changes tunnel behavior (suggestion by dwidel).

    - 0.126u2: Brian Troha added information on how to toggle the built-in speedup in Ms. Pac-Man.

    - 9th July 2008: Mr. Do - When I "fixed" the colors on the Ms. Pac-Man bezel, I didn't do it right either (apologies to Ad_Enuff). I think I got it right this time. On the cocktail artwork, a piece on one of the A's was missing (wrong layer order in uploaded AI file). Also matched the colors on the cocktail to those of the upright.

    - 17th June 2007: Mr. Do - Added the cabaret version bezel to Ms. Pac-Man.

    - 11th March 2007: Mr. Do - Adjusted the colors on the Ms. Pac-Man upright to match more of what I see everywhere I go. Also made the same adjustments to the cocktail bezel.

    - 10th December 2006: Mr. Do - Thanks to the loan by Vintage Arcade Superstore, Ms. Pac-Man artwork is finally, FINALLY, brought to Justice, thanks to cleanup by Addy.

    - 24th August 2006: Mr. Do - Added Ms. Pacman cocktail artwork.

    - 0.105u2: David Widel added clone Ms. Pac-Man (bootleg, (encrypted)). The game is encrpyted by a 74298 sitting on top of the rom at 6f. The select line is tied to a2; a0 and a1 of the EPROM are are left out of socket and run through the 74298.

    - 0.90u4: Dave Widel added full memory map to Ms. Pac Man, this should fix the game ending.

    - 0.84u6: Aaron Giles added clone Ms. Pac-Man (with speedup hack). Removed existing speedup cheat hack from Pacman/Ms Pac Man as the way it was implemented in MAME is NOT how it was implemented in the arcades. I have added the hacked software ROMs as three separate sets for Puck Man, Pac Man, and Ms. Pac Man. These hacked ROMs do not let you control the speed of the game with a button; the game is always fast, and Pac Man is faster than the ghosts. Also added a fake dipswitch to control the equivalent of the hardware version of the speedup hack. It can be set to "Disabled", "Enabled Always", or "Enabled with Button". Note that this hack speeds up everyone, including the ghosts, as the original hack did.

    - 12th July 2004: 3D ARCADE - New 3D cabinet model for Ms. Pac-Man from Baraka.

    - 0.55: Added clone Ms. Pacman Champion Edition / Super Zola Pac Gal.

    - 0.37b16: Added Ms. Pac-Man (Midway) and clone Ms. Pac Attack. Dave Widel decrypted the original Ms. Pac Man. Changed 'Ms. Pac-Man' to clone 'Ms. Pac-Man (bootleg)'. Renamed (mspacman) to (mspacmab) and (mspacatk) to (mspacpls).

    - 0.35b11: Victor Trucco added clone Pac Gal (hack 1981).

    - 0.34b1: Added sound and color proms ($0, 10).

    - 0.33b5: Known issues: In Miss Pac Plus, use the 2 player start button to accelerate. This is a feature of the original game.

    - 0.30: Nicola Salmoria and Aaron Giles completely rewritten the Namco waveform audio subsystem. This gets rid of some artefacts in Pac Man (eating a ghost) and Ms Pac Man (eating dots while a fruit is bouncing).

    - 0.29: Changed description of clone 'Ms. Pac Man Attacks' to 'Miss Pac Plus'.

    - 0.25: Added clone 'Ms. Pac Man Attacks'. In Miss Pac Plus the bonus fruits move through the maze walls. This is normal, the original does the same. Known issues: Speed cheat doesn't work in clone version. In clone version bonus (like cherry) moves over the maze. I think this is a rom bug and not a MAME one.

    - 0.18: Sprite placement in Ms Pac Man should now be arcade perfect [Nicola Salmoria]. Thanks to Richard Davies who verified it on a real machine.

    - 0.15: Nicola Salmoria added high score saving to Ms. Pac Man.

    - 30th May 1997: Dumped Ms. Pac-Man Plus.

    - 0.06: Nicola Salmoria fixed staccato notes in Pacman and other games using the same hardware. There are still some minor glitches (especially in Ms. Pac Man) but Pac Man tunes are now very close to the original.

    - 0.02: Changed description to 'Ms Pac Man'.

    - 0.01: Nicola Salmoria added 'Ms Pac Man (bootleg)' (1981). Game is playable with accurate colors and sound. Control: Arrows = Move around, F1 = Skip level, F2 = Test mode and CTRL = Speed up cheat. Known issues: Blinky and Pinky seem to be shifted one pixel to the right. This is really annoying, but I can't seem to be able to understand why. Maybe there is an additional "sprite offset" register somewhere? Or did the original just behave this way? Note that we can't fix it by just moving sprites 0 and 1 one pixel to the left, because when Pac Man eats a power pill the sprites order is changed so that Pac Man is drawn over the ghosts. It becomes sprite 0, and Blinky becomes sprite 4. Thanks to Allard van der Bas (avdbas@wi.leidenuniv.nl) for starting the Arcade Emulation Programming Repository at http://valhalla.ph.tn.tudelft.nl/emul8. Without the Repository, I would never have even tried to write an emulator.

    - 0.175: Fixed regression in 8bpm, drivfrcp and porky (s2650games_map). Fixed X and Y flip bits are ignored when sprite is rendered at top of screen due to vertical wrapping. Note: When a sprite is partially off the bottom of the screen (Y values less than $10) the hardware draws the missing parts at the top of the screen, basically wrapping the sprite [Robbbert].

    - 0.174: Added machine\acitya.h, machine\jumpshot.h, machine\pacplus.h and machine\theglobp.h. Allow separate Pacman driver building. Added fake includes till converted to device [Miodrag Milanovic].

    - 0.118u5: Aaron Giles added new colortable management functions in emupal.c.

Updated pacman, mappy, toypop and several other drivers to use the new functions.

    - 0.115u4: Aaron Giles removed colortables from a number of drivers that didn't need them. Also converted pacman and mappy drivers to collapse the colortable and palette. Changed palettesize to 512 colors.

Renamed pengo sound & video hardware to pacman as it was used their first. Converted to use tilemaps. Merged memory maps. Added rom mirroring to pacman & moved any game that needs another rom into another map. Tidied up the mirroring in the S2650 games. Grouped the GAME() lines by hardware and then year. Changed gfx2 to gfx1 ($1000, 1800...) and palettesize to 32 colors in all games.

    - 0.69: Added machine\acitya.c (Atlantic City Action).

    - 0.62: Removed machine\shootbul.c.

    - 15th May 2002: Stephane Humbert fixed inputs and dipswitches in the Pac Man driver.

    - 0.30: Added maketrax.c driver.

    - 0.28: Removed vidhrdw\pacman.c.

    - 0.20: Merged crush.c with pacman.c driver.

    - 0.19: Added crush.c driver.

    - 0.14: Merged crush.c with pacman.c driver.

    - 0.12: Added vidhrdw\generic.c/h.

    - 0.06: Changed crush\driver.c, pacman\driver.c, pacman\machine.c and pacman\vidhrdw.c to drivers\crush.c, drivers\pacman.c, machine\pacman.c and vidhrdw\pacman.c.

    - 0.04: Nicola Salmoria defined a generic interrupt_vector_w() function, this makes the Pac Man driver tinier (look at pacman/machine.c, it's now there only to handle the cheat).

    - 0.03: Removed crush\machine.c.

    - 0.02: Added pacman\vidhrdw.c.

    - 0.01: Added crush\driver.c, pacman\driver.c, crush\machine.c and pacman\machine.c.
