        Nice work Sjaak!  Love that tracking "how many items you ate" at the end.
That way you can all out the players that just avoided everything...  ;D


(I know I still owe you a finished Pac-Man Battle Royal cocktail pic) It's coming...  :-[

Why wasn't Pac Man Battle Royale released in 1987?

Love your work Sjaak  :applaud:

I really want to build one of these.  Been messing around in Sketchup trying to get the dimensions right before I start cutting.  Still trying to figure out the proper way to mount the monitor.  I think I'm gonna go with another joystick at the end of the table for classic vertical games too.

Very impressive work, dude!  That is so clean and polished looking that you could easily sell the final product (obviously with a different default skin).  Great stuff!

Looking good! Just put the monitor on the U shaped box that goes under the playfield. There should be enough room.

Ummm... I freakin love you?!  That's awesome man!  I'm going to be building a cocktail in the near future and you've just forced me to make it 4 player.

Working on a version of the software with customizable graphics, sounds and levels for the Banana Royale contest. I did some testing with alternate graphics.

What if Pac Man Battle Royale had been released in 1987.......

The big cabinet was finished a while ago. I was at Eurocade 2015 yesterday running a custom tournament version.



The Banana Royale spinoff is pretty much done, but I don't think anyone is interested in that version anymore.

The 8 bit version needs some 8 bit sound effects, but since I'm crap at doing sound and music, that's going to have to wait.

Do pac man 256

And I'm working on a 256 version with the original graphics with a special Pac Man 256 cabinet.

Interest waned because you never updated it.  I put in hours on that monster version and then nothing. No sound update. No nada.

Awesome project Sjaak!

I was searching custom made Pac-Man Battle Royale on Google and ended up here. I'd like to build one myself and was wondering if you could share the cut layout or exterior dimensions of the cabinet, it would help a lot!

Hi Sjaak,

A couple of friends and myself are looking to build our own Battle Royale clone arcade cabinet for some great basement fun. Are you willing to share/sell your binaries and/or source code?

I have another project of building a bar top cabinet, with pallet wood, for my RetroPie project. This one will only involve USB ports/joysticks though (more like a portable console with a cool look and feel).

Thanks! :)

Based on past experience, his Battle Royale software is not for sale or distribution. Just FYI.

Unfortunately the game crashes for me randomly at times...I've been able to figure out a little bit with attaching VS to try and debug the error, but to figure out what needs solved is not exactly simple considering it's been run through a code obscuring program: https://confuser.codeplex.com/

Glad I didn't spend too much time messing around with customizing it before finding out that Sjaak is moving on from it. The last published version I can find isn't stable for me, and even if it were, it has the timer limitation. Maybe one day I'll learn game development principles enough to build my own version, but I was hoping I could learn some from poking around.

You can buy the boards from NAMCO for about $2800 if you don't have exchanges or around $1600 if you have boards to exchange. Was there any progress on getting a bug free version for the PC?

Same for me, except I spent all the time to bring in the classic sprites from pac-man, and even make the baby pac sprite.  It just crashes at completely random times.  It could be first maze,...it could be after you've all gone through every maze and restarted, or it could be at the last maze.  It's really weird.  Can't some programming genius fix this problem?  Or please Sjaak, just jump back in long enough to fix that random crashing thing?  This is soooooo much better than the official version, and there is so much fun the community could have with the ability to make your own custom mazes.

I'm curious what version of the software you are running and where you got it, since I never released the software...

Is it the Banana Royale software?

Yes it's the last version you linked to in the other Banana Royale thread. BananaRoyale5.zip 

Our family is having a blast with this!  We just have to keep restarting the program.  We just got through all the rounds and then made it through 5 seconds of the next first round and it crashed.

That's not a crash, there is a timer limitation on the program (probably 5 minutes). Nothing I can do about that, because I don't have the source code anymore.

I can try to see if I can put the 8 bit version online (without the graphics), which is a much better version since it supports the Tiled level editor (http://www.mapeditor.org/) and has less sprites. But that will take some days.

Oh wow, had no idea that was a timer.  Bummer about loosing the source code.  If you throw the 8 bit version up will it still take the same sprite folders that the bananaroyale5.zip has so one could just transfer their work over and have it function properly?  That would be great! 

I'm sure there's still a lot of interest in this, it just might not be noticeable (views, vs. actual comments).  For me, your masterful adaptation is hands down the best version out there. 
Here's what I came up with for our Pac-Family:

This update to the executable removes the timer. Just copy it over the BananaRoyale5 from the BananaRoyale topic.

To play the game, you still need to supply your own graphics (the old ones still work) and your own sounds. Or use the really nice graphics from damageinc86.  Crashes can be fixed by restarting the game ;)

Yes, playing it right now. I used a different obfuscator which does better compression.

Beautiful!  We just played through two full rounds!  Thank you very much sjaak! 

I was also wondering when making mazes using the tiled program, how do you know which of the four power pellets you put down is going to actually show up in the maze?  I am having trouble figuring out how to get more than one on screen, and then the one I thought would be there, wasn't, it was one of the other four i put down.

Number of pellets = Number of remaining players - 1

Position is chosen at random from the 4 defined positions

Read the whole banana royale and this thread carefully for prerequisites and install instructions etc.

Windows versions doesn't matter

Ahhhh that makes sense now.  Cool, thanks.  Making a decent maze is harder than it looks lol.  Maybe we should start a thread just for that  :cheers:
