Try before you buy!

These instructions are for Windows computers only.

Thinking of buying but not sure if they’ll work on your computer? Try this:

64 BIT computers – 

1. Download MAME 64 bit – http://www.mameui.info/MameUI64.7z to the desktop.

2. Extract to C:\MAME (you may need 7zip if it’s not already installed – http://www.7-zip.org/download.html )

3. Download PACMAN – http://www.planetemu.net/?section=roms&dat=1302&action=showrom&id=3071769 (Click ‘Telecharger’ or ‘Download’, Save to Desktop)

4. Copy “pacman.zip” from desktop to C:\MAME\Mameui64\Roms

5. Run C:\MAME\Mameui64\Mameui64.exe

6. Double-click ‘Pac-Man (Midway)’

 

32 BIT computers – 

1. Download MAME 32 bit – https://github.com/mamedev/mame/releases/download/mame0179/mame0179b_32bit.exe

2. Extract to C:\MAME

3. Download PACMAN – http://www.planetemu.net/?section=roms&dat=1302&action=showrom&id=3071769 (Click ‘Telecharger’, Save to Desktop)

4. Copy “pacman.zip” from desktop to C:\MAME\roms

5. Run C:\MAME\mame.exe

6. Double-click ‘Pac-Man (Midway)’

 

Press 5 to insert coins, 1 to start. Use arrow keys to play!

If this works on your system, all my drives will work 🙂

Not sure if you have 32 or 64 bit? Press and hold the Windows key (bottom left of your keyboard) and Pause / Break (top left) on your keyboard to see this: 

Or, click ‘Start’ (Bottom left ‘orb’), then right click ‘Computer’ then click ‘Properties’. Look for “System Type” about half way down that window.

Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 users – you have 64 bit.

Enjoy.
