For System 1 - 5
Guides on emulating older games

An early Pac-Man clone that features a compact Mac chasing the evil PC ghosts.

Mac•Man came bundled with the Arcade•Adapter, a small piece of hardware which allowed pre-ADB Macs to use Atari-type joysticks. (The ChoiceStick would do the same for ADB models.)

See also: Super MacMan II, an apparent homage to Mac•Man by another author.

Architecture: 68k

Compatible with an early Mac or an emulator; it crashes on OS 9.

Can someone find out the pinout or insides of that adapter? It shouldn't be hard to reproduce?

It is possible to bypass Mac•Man's "Something is using the memory that Mac•Man needs. Please remove RAMDisks, Debuggers, Print Spoolers, or other utilities and try again." dialog by patching CODE 1 resource at offset 0x1AB0 from 6700 0016 to 6000 0016 (beq -> bra) (Mac•Man 0.9).

Use NoFinder to run on System 7.

in mini vmac, the power dots don't change the PCs to eat-able. i also get some warning about the application doing something unexpected/abnormal. any help would be appreciated, this is one of my fave old-school mac games.

Colour version is called Macman Classic Pro.

I'll add it to this archive. Pulled from my BMUG PD-ROM from one of the summer MacWorld Expos. It's stuffed with shareware from 1994.
