[Image Can Not Be Found]

Hello everyone…

First I'd like this topic to be renamed “Fairchild System” - that's the name of the system and all brands have a “Fairchild”-logo on them. If not - rename the Vectrex-topic to “MB” that would be the same type of wrong-doing.   ;-)

I'd like help to fill the gaps in my Gallery, if you have anything that I miss, let me know and if you can't scan it for me maybe I could borrow it?
You'll find it at http://w5.nuinternet.com/s6601.....6/gallery/ I also have a registered shortcut that's a little easier to remember: http://go.to/channelf

I am the co-programmer of the Pac-man game for the Fairchild System, if you'd like to try it out it's available for download and emulation in MESS. I have also released two numbered Pac-man cartridges, there will be more of these eventually. I'm currently working on building carts from scratch rather than rebuilding SABA#20-carts.

I'd also like to recommend the http://veswiki.com for all you programmers that would like to make something for the Fairchild System. There's an improved version of MESS that has better sound on the Channel F emulation - like the Channel F II rather than the Channel F. Pac-man will run at it's best with that particular version.

Many thanks for your valuable post Fredric, I hope you will post here in the future too.

I have changed the name of this forum and also in the menu bar to the left to Fairchild now. I guess I should do the same with the Emerson Arcadia (Hanimex) system ...

I would DEFINITELY buy a Pac-Man cart for this system if you should make a second cart run, and I think I am not the only one smile

Das taugt mir!

Aber mit wenig Ei bitte …

I watched the YouTube video now, it seems to be an excellent conversion. And the ghosts don't flicker as much as in the VCS version wink

Very well done!!
