Thread: Help me play pac man ( the origenal arcade version ) without messing up my desktop resolution

    Slightly off topic.

    There are two tunes in Phoenix.


    One is für Elise by Beethoven, I recognized this instantly.

    The other one was allot harder to find, but thanks to a wiki about this game, I also found the second tune.
    I almost lost sleep over this, because it sounded so familiar, but I had no clue on what it was called.

    Spanish Romance.
    There is some discussion on who wrote it.

    This off course begged for a cover in LMMS. The bell like sound is ZynAddSubFx, which is included in lmms by default.
    Its not an easy zynth to learn, but the sounds in can produce, wow. ( I also added a bit of reverb, but have not done any EQ yet.)
    Its not finished yet, but the first part is in LMMS.

    The original is an guitar piece.

    So we can abuse Linux not only to play arcade game, but also to make music.

    The robotron , two joystick problem is now fixed too. I ordered a Xbox one controller, which is supported in Linux.

    I looked up my own topic, because I need to reinstall MAME, this time on Tumbleweed, and remembered I had issues before and asked for help here.

    It has a positive site too, that the internet does not forget .

    I will have to re download the roms or take a hard disk from my old pc, and connect it temporary to my new pc.

    Because I have a nice internet connection (100 down 10 up) downloading a fresh version might be the better option.

    I just installed MAME and checked for ibutf8proc1 - Library for processing UTF-8 encoded Unicode strings

    That file is not there any more, its now called:
    libutf8proc2 - Library for processing UTF-8 encoded Unicode strings

    I can share the link when I finished downloading and checked the roms, but do you mean packman and space invaders?

    Will probably best to do this through a private message unless you guys say just post the link in this topc?

    Right now still have to find it though, but that should not be a problem.

    I have another fight on my hands.

    Yesterday found something on my new pc, lol. I had already copied the roms over from my old pc.

    Sadly its not working, nor with these roms nor with the newer rom pack I downloaded.

    Started mame from the cli, and it does not give me any errors.

    Right now I am lost on why its not working, but never surrender never give up.
    To be continued.....

    Hi
    In Tumbleweed;

    Code:
    zypper in myman ninvaders
    Open a terminal and play....

    Looks like the mame build is broken, needs fixing....

    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...E:Factory/mame

    I would suggest start a new thread on this (just link back to this old thread).
