Pac-Man Forum  /  Ghosts Pathfinding when in "Fright" mode.

This is something I've been wanting to know for a very long time. How do the ghosts know what direction to turn when they are in frightened mode? The typical response is that it's random movement, which is impossible. If the ghosts took random directions when they were frightened, it would be like Ms Pac-Man, where you can't use patterns. Since you can use patterns, where the ghosts pick the same options each time in frightened mode, does it have to do with the location of Pac-Man/orientation of Pac-Man or something along those lines? I was really curious about this, but cannot seem to figure it out. I'd assume it's a false RNG that is designed in a way that makes it feel as if it is random, when really it just bases off of unexpected factors in the game.
