@freemac

I haven't got real hardware at hand at the moment to check this out.

I just loaded the game in winape, I selected 2 players, then joystick option for player 1, I pressed joypad 1 button 2 for select, then selected keyboard for player 2, I selected R, T, 6, 5, G, F for LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN, FIRE, SELECT.

Both Joypads work in emulation like this, doesn't the same thing work on real hardware?

Now you say it it's all fine on MiST-board  :picard2:

Here is " GOLDEN AXE ", 2 Button / Joypad version.  8)

The game lets you use two joysticks, but it doesn't let you remap Joystick / Joypad 1 Button 2.

I've changed the game so you can use both buttons on both Joysticks / Joypads.

Another challenge : Psycho Pigs UXB - the second player stupidly has one life less against first player, could you correct that ? - that's a cool 2 player game but does lack because of that...

I've just had a look at the original disc and both cracked versions from cpc-power and it appears that both players start with 4 lives, therefore I'm not seeing the problem.  ???

The display at the top shows 3 lives each, but you get four lives, when the 3 lives in the display are gone, you are on your last life, which is your 4th.

I checked if the lives are the same when the game starts and it appears they are.

Player One lives = 03 @ 2418
Player Two lives = 03 @ 2419

The game does require a PLUS Keyboard fix I believe, maybe someone could check this out and fix it.

Got to retry Psycho Pigs UXB then  :-X

Asphalt would be nice using second button instead of space bar for switching weapon.

As Barbarian is done, what about its 128ko enhanced released Deathsword ? As most people aren't keaboard compliant nowadays it would be great to allow tournament on many cpc games in retrogaming meetings.
And other great vs fighting games: best of the best, sai combat.

Hi Phantomz,

I am relatively new on the board (1 year) and I find your thread very interesting.
I am curious as to how this fascinating project started, was it one game in particular
that you wanted to enhance for personal use?
Or did someone ask for help?
Or something else again?

Cheers,

Peter

Hi, I started to change the controls in games due to the fantastic C4CPC being released by @gerald for the GX4000 and also the fantastic nocart program by @arnoldemu

I wanted to play these games on the GX4000 but the lack of keyboard became an issue, therefore I looked into changing the controls in the games to fix this problem.

I thought that people might also like to play these games on their GX4000 and later thought that people would like to also play these games on their cpc's without the need of one player having to use the keyboard.

I have been getting requests to remap secondary controls to button 2 on the joystick / joypad lately as it can be a bit of a pain having to press space or another button for weapon change etc.

@freemac

You can redefine the controls to the joystick to select both Joystick fire buttons if required.

I have however made it default to joystick with both buttons mapped, therefore Button 2 replaces M.  ;)

@kawickboy

" Death Sword " is a One Player game, therefore you will have to play " Barbarian " for Two Players.

I haven't been able to remap the buttons in " Best of the Best ", maybe someone else could have a look at this game.

" Sai Combat " lets you use both Joysticks / Joypads by default, just press 2 to start a 2 player game.  ;)

Some people might like this.....

" BRUCE LEE ".  8)

I've made it stop at the loading screen, press any button to pass.

The game has both joypad buttons as punch/kick by default, I have now made it so that Button 1 is punch/kick and Button 2 is now Jump/Climb on both joypads.

Therefore you can push UP to jump or Climb, or use Button 2.  ;)
