Hey fans!  This is a WIP (Work In Prustration).  Back in the day someone was looking to have double heroes on GALAGA and would pay for the effort.  I never got paid, but I did it anyways.  Earlier this year spent an evening drumming up what I have and include it here.  I QUIT.  If anyone wants to pick this project, you're welcome to it.

 

There are 2 versions - Type 1 and Type 2.  Type 1 has double hero & firing and generic/original GALAGA formations (boring).  Type 2 also has double hero & firing and new SPACE FORCE formations (exciting).  Type 2 needs work as it honks up the challenge stages.  But I think it would be easy for someone to figure it out.  I give a clue at the bottom of the changelist.

What happens when you capture a ship?

Most likely, the Galaga mothership won't try to capture your ship, just like the 'normal' game once you already have two ships tethered.  I imagine there's a flag setting to prevent that.

Just my 2c

So this is kinda like the NES game genie code for starting with 2 ships but hard coded instead of on the fly. Pretty neat.
