Description
This is an improvement over Thomas Jentzsch's previous Omega Race JS (Joystick) hack. This version includes support for a driving controller, to more accurately reflect the feel of the original arcade game.

There are two modes:

1. Right difficulty B = DC mode:
  • left joystick (thrust, steering and fire)
  • right driving controller (steering and fire too)
    (used for both players)

    2. Right difficulty A = JS mode:
  • player 1: left joystick
  • player 2: right joystick


  • For z26 and Driving Controller mode use -w2 as a parameter.
     
    What's New
    Coding has been changed to allow for the use of the Driving Controller.
