Well, looks like we have a fault in MAME.

DK uses uninitialized ram to seed with.  Therefore, mame should simulate this by randomly twiddling the bits stored in it before booting the machine, and storing these random bits in the playback file, so playback still works.  Wonder why they didn't think of that?

This also suggests that until this is fixed, the MAME category and the real board category should remain separate.

Pacman indeed has zero randomness, and thus a playback to real hardware would sync.

I've been having this same problem, came to the board for advice and here it is  ;D I seem to be dying more on the 1>2 transition than the 2>end lately. I was more or less using the YOLO technique but always did the creep over to the left thing once I got up the ladder. I figured there must be an ideal spring to do the transition. Will try this later. Thanks!

Update: Since using the "go on the short spring" technique, I haven't died on the 1>2 transition since. Works like a charm.

Waiting to go on a short spring is the safest way to go.  Also you can watch what the next spring will be and if its a long spring that's even safer.
