Some similar Mega Drive hacks were added not long ago... I know because I asked for those :biggrin:

Two caveats on BlastoBR's hack for SSF2, though: 1) It's in Brazillian only, although the author is working on an English version. 2) It shows garbled graphics on a variety of emulators, only Fusion seems to run it properly. I could contact the author on YouTube and he said he'll try to fix it for the English release.

UPDATE: That Golden Axe hack is also a potential problem. It uses a ROM variant that's very hard to find. I used it on a regular World v1.0 ROM and got a wrong checksum. That can be fixed with the Fix CheckSum utility, and afterwards the ROM seems to work fine, but I can't tell if this will result in a 100% working game.

Another few Spectrum requests:

EDIT: And Karateka.

There's a translation just released of the Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom NES game. While the US release is already in FBNeo, a great deal was lost from the original localisation. The translation looks rather special, if this could be considered for a future release at some point?

Added a dip option to Spectrum: map Kempston to QAOPM or QAOPSpace.
This feature is for games that only support QAOPM or QAOPSpace as inputs.

If you find a game like this, please say it here - I will then set the game to use this configuration by default :)
f.ex 2 homebrews that already make use of this handy feature:
Moon Ranger
Jet Pack Bob

best regards,

Seems a bit radical, but it gets rid of the joystick issues in "Lotus Turbo Challenge" and "Test Drive 2". I'll notify if I find any strange behaviour in other games.

EDIT: With M as fire it also fixes "Desperado" by Topo.

A few more Spectrum requests:

- Aliens (two different games, one from Activision and the other by Electric Dreams)
- Budokan
- HKM / Human Killing Machine
- Karnov
- Hypsys
- Casanova
- Thunderbirds

"Budokan" and "Thunderbirds" can be messy. "Budokan" took two tapes to access all sections, and "Thunderbirds" has 3-4 separate loads (independent?) with different sections.
