jwierer Posted August 28, 2009 Share Posted August 28, 2009 (edited) I am proud to make publicly available an Atari 7800 PacmanConstruction Set. For those who previously tried my Beef Drop Construction Set, I tried to get to make it as simple as possible to hack Pacman. With this tool you'll beable to many changes to most aspects of the Pacman series of games such as:Pacman, Ms. Pacman, and Jr. Pacman to create custom hacks of Pacman. Since you can change most aspects of the game, aside from the actual game play, you can create entirely new versions for this classic game. Here's a list of the things you can change: Mazes Dot pattern Energy Dot locations Maze order Fruit Locations (Ms Pacman) Game Colors Sprites Title Screen Graphics Game Text Number of lives Before you begin you need to make sure you're systems meetsthe minimum requirements. Prerequisites Operating System: Windows XP, Vista, Windows7. Might work on older versions of Windows, but I haven't tried it. .NET Framework 3.0 ( if running XP you can download here) Ram about 20-25MB of free ram 1MB of free disk Download Latest PCS1.031.zip Older pcs1.030.zip pcs1.029.zip pcs1.027.zip pcs1.026.zip.zip There is very little you need to do after downloading and running. Basically make sure that pacman constructionset.exe and A78SIGN.exe, included in the download below) are in the same directory. After that everything is optional, but will make your life easier. The first thing you'll want to do is set an emulator to use using the Debug menu and selecting "Set Emulator". I tested this with ProSystem during development, but you can choose whatever you want. You can find some emulators here. The other thing you might want to do is load an external editor such as a hex editor or bit editor like Hack-o-matic 3 so you can make additional modifications, not available from the editor itself. Once set you can test in an emulator by hitting F8 or opening in an editor using F9. Menu items and buttons are also available. Screenshots Here are some hacks I've posted previously in my blog Snow Day Jr. Pacman Upside Down Pacman Upside Down Ms Pacman Jr Ms Pacman Special thanks to Bob DeCrescenzo for creating the 7800 Pacman series and providing me with all the technical information necessary to create this and Gambler172 for tirelessly testing the last couple months!
