    Ms. Pac-Man Advanced setting FAQ

    Hi.. This FAQ (basic) is for those who played the Advanced setting of this 
    game. The info here was taken from Ms. Pac-Man FAQ by Don Williams and 
    modified for advanced settings. If you want to know more about the game, 
    please read the FAQs from http://www.gamefaqs.com or you can use your favorite
    search engine to find the website(s) that talk about this game.  I assume that
    you know the basic knowledge for the game. Here are the advanced settings.. 
    
    -In the very beginning of the game (board 1, cherry) 3 ghosts [Blinky, Pinky, 
     Inky] will come out immediately from the box [that's what I call it. I don't  
     know what the official name for this] (same as board 2, strawberry, normal
     setting). In board 2 and thereafter, all ghosts come out of the box
     immediately.
    
    -Maze setting and Animation feature is the same.

    17         none        Random
    
    etc. to maze 136
    
    
    I don't know if 2.5 is accurate since when you eat a energizer, it's 
    flashing until you hear  (at start of high pitch sound) [my guess].
    I'll check on it.

    -Ghosts move a bit faster in the Peach and later boards (IMO).
    
    -After board 13, no more blue time. Just going back to the opposite direction.
     In board 14, you will do one final blue time (1 sec). After that, you're on
     your own from now on (eating the Energizer [big dot] will force the ghost to 
     go to the opposite direction.
    
    Anything else?
