I like many of you actually had a TG-16 and Turbo-Duo (I still have my TG-16 somewhere). I noticed there is something missing in Magic Engine (at least the demo ver) that you can not do, which can be done with the actual systems.

When I was a kid Aero Blasters was one of my favorite games. The same day I got the game I discovered a cheat/hack for it. If you had a turbo tap and 2 controllers you could start the game in "Dual Scramble" (two payer) mode, once the game started pause it and remove the turbo tap and a controller, then plug a single controller directly into the system, unpause the game and move both ships to the top or bottom left corners until they are "merged". This will effectively double your firepower, and since the game has an odd number of continues if both player one and player two continue on 1 credit you will have an infinite number of continues!

As far I know this trick should work on all 2 player games.

So the ability to map player one and player two to the same keys/controller should be added to the emu.

Since I haven't registered I donít know if you can do this in the full version. If you do add this "feature" to the emu how about a free copy? Smile

Juise, welcome on this forum and thank you for this interesting cheat. But you should have posted it in the Tips & Tricks section... I've got 1799 urawaza under my belt and I don't think that would entitle me or anyone else to 1799 free keyfiles Wink

Hi, and thanks for welcoming me to the forums.

The free key poll is more of a joke then anything else Smile

The only reason I posted here instead of the trips/tricks, is because this is a feature request. The ability to map multiple inputs to a single key, is something the software cant do yet, that can be done on the hardware.

Well, just to add to that, there's another 'feature' that MagicEngine doesn't appear to support. With a sufficiently worn TurboPad, you can get it so that you can simultaneously press any of the 4 directionals all at once. In Raiden, pressing up and down at the same time will move your ship sideways off the left side of the screen and enemies will fire to the right but never hit you. I imagine some other games have input handling bugs like this as well. It would be appreciated if MagicEngine would at least allow the option of pressing up/down or left/right at the same time.
