Pac-DX Released! - October 23,1999 by JoseQ
The first release of PacDX has arrived! You can download this new emulator from the Emulator Download Page right now! For those that don't know what this is, this is a revolutionary emulation program that plays theArcade version of Pac-Man but with greatly improved graphics. The gameplay however, stays the same, it justlooks a lot better. Be sure to download the Pac-Man ROMs if you don't have them already, and start playing. Also, come back here and post your comments! Here are mine: "I love it!"

One Article Up: RockNES coming out tomorrow!

First off, I love playing pacman. I gotta
say though, it was somewhat overrated.
GrafX are nice, but the basic gameplay is
exactly the same. Anyway, it was a good
release BUT we could have waited until
all the bugs were crunched

the basic gameplay is exactly the same because
the basic gameplay is supposed to be exactly the
same. i don't think you fully appreciate the
intention behind the emulator. its as if you
complained about callus' rendition of sf2 being
exactly the same as the 'original' sf2.

That was the whole point, to improve graphics without tampering with the gameplay.

From:
Not overly impressed. As an 'enhanced' game I found it to be so minimal you might as well play the original ROM.
Let's hope the next release fixes that but I somehow doubt it will...

Good first release, runs great on my AMD k6-2 400. I can't see the bottom of the screen in 800x600 mode though, so I have to run it in the smaller resolution.

I just played it a few times - a few criticisms. 1. Impossible to play on full screen - 640x480 without it being verrrrrryyyyy sllooooow, even with frameskip. And no, its not my system (AMDII 333mhz, 16mb video card etc.) 2. Playing it full speed in mini mode is fun, but leaves a long standing eye strain afterwards.

I think a lot of people/web pages kinda pressured the developers for a quick release, esp. since other retro projects have yet to turn up (the new Ghosts and Goblins game, for example). I think by release 2 it'll look pretty good.
