Cool. This widget suffers though from a problem with embedded Flash in Dashboard widgets, in the Pacman case the start buttons won't focus properly and you have to click about 18 times to get it run. I've being having similar problems with loss of key events with some of my own flash content which I turned into a widget just to mess around with. I'm taking it this is a problem with Flash in Dashboard as opening Pacman.html in Safari (or opening my own flash stuff) it works fine. I suspect Dashboard is interfering with input events for Flash somehow I haven't had a chance to look into it more, I suspect others must have noticed this on Flash forums etc. regards

Freaking Awesome. Reason? It's Pac-Man, unintrusive, where you want it.

This is a great version of Pacman. Has not only the look and sound, but much more of the feel of the original than any other look-alike. Version 2 is great! On first try i thought perhaps the start bug had been resolved because the hand appeared and buttons worked. Haven't since. 8^( Pretty funny on a 21" monitor at 2048 x 1536 since Pac Man and his antagonists are all about 1/8" high.

This Widget is a reasonable facimile of Pacman. The Menus seem to be the only problem. When I launched this (10.4.1) I could only get the mouse arrow to turn into a selection 'finger' by clicking the controls item. If I clicked controls a few times I ended up on the controls page and couldn't get back from there. The solution was to close the widget, launch it again double-click controls, then double-click start game. This took a few command+r reloads to work. Once in game it works. The menu implementation is the only thing that seems problematic, but it is a critical problem and I hope it is remedied. Otherwise this is a nice attempt at a widget.

Start Issue : Flash does not work perfectly on dashboard. This is not a bug with the widget. The donate button is not a link, although it might appear as one. This widget has been tested on 10 different macs with Mac OS X.4 on them, no known bugs appear, other than the "start bug".

Looks promising, but is UTTER CRAP because the game cannot be started and the website has NO information at all.

Well it plays fine under Panther using Safari. Funny that everyone is having problems under Tiger apparently. Making it resizable would be nice. At the very least, a "normal" and "double" size. Though live resizing using a grow handle would be wicked cool. Keep up the great work!

Difficult to get game to start, and when it does start half of the widget is blank, making it impossible to play. Needs work.

This widget is unstable and way too small on my screen to play. When I click on the links in the main panel, most of the time nothing happens except for a little animation of the word I'm clicking on. Need to work on these things. I did actually get into the game at one point and it seemed to play fine...

Thought I'd download and set aside to try in a few days when I upgrade to Tiger. Pacman2.wdgt downloads as a folder in OS 10.3. Open the folder and drop the file pacman.swf on an open Safari window & see what happens. Have fun!

Nice "Dashboard port" with old-school sounds and graphics. Some troubles to get game start though(requires a lot of clicks, but it eventually works). Be aware that this widget doesn't pause when getting out of Dashboard, even if you quit the current game. The Dashboard client gets about 5% of CPU on my system when Pacman for Dashboard is enabled (1.25 GHz PowerBook).

The "Start Game" link on front menu does require a lot of clicking around, but after that, it worked fine. I'm not sure what everybody else was complaining about.

Can't get it to work -- controls menu requires multiple clicks to sometimes get it to take me there; but the start game doesn't let me do anything. Was looking forward to futzing with the game ... lower marks as I cannot get it to work. Potential obviously there.

Well, it gets points for stability and ease of use because IT JUST SITS THERE AND DOES NOTHING!!! ...as does the author's website- splash screen with no links. Did this guy forget to make things safari-friendly?

Cool concept, but pretty buggy in this version. I couldn't get it to respond to mouse clicks in the main menu very well. Looks good performance-wise though, I'll give it another try when/if it's a little more polished.
