Just for fun I loaded Scramble onto my XEGS. Unfortunately I lack the keyboard, so I'm currently stuck with default options, and I understand that asking for support of the Select and Option buttons might be asking for too much.
Since it has been clarified that the Atari computers are immune to any side effects from Sega gamepads, I suppose I could use it as well in order to drop bombs, which otherwise is impossible on a XEGS setup like mine.
Uh, the default setting lets you fire AND drop bombs at the same time.
I’ve been plating like that units I received a cheap Megadrive compatibel pad controller......but it sucks balls and to be honest.....the combined firing/bombing isn’t bad at all.....
