TMNT - 4 player select/play on 2 player joystick?
« on: October 11, 2014, 02:15:14 pm »
I know this has probably been asked before, but I wasn't able to find an answer on it. I'm a beginner to the arcade cabinet scene, and as my first setup, I've stuck with a simple X-Arcade Tankstick setup. I have everything working fine, but for 4 player games (mainly TMNT that I've seen so far), I don't know how to set it up so that me and a friend can put credits in, and select whichever turtle we want - mainly because it's supposed to put credits in for whatever turtle you want and play that # joystick. So how do you guys do a 4 player game like TMNT on a 2 player joystick setup?

Probably easier to just play the 2-player version.

There's a clone rom that's setup for 2 players. I think it's called Oceania or Ocean-something. Insert coins, select turtle, cowabunga.
Oceania = Australia + surrounding islands  ::)



Here are a few 2-player versions of 4-player games to choose from:

ROM name = tmnt2po
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Oceania 2 Players)

ROM name = tmnt22pu
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Turtles in Time (2 Players ver UDA)

ROM name = simpsons2p
The Simpsons (2 Players World, set 1)

ROM name = xmen2pa
X-Men (2 Players ver AAA)

ROM name = gauntlet2p
Gauntlet (2 Players, rev 6)

ROM name = gaunt22p
Gauntlet II (2 Players, rev 2)   ;D

a dumber but different solution, if you cant figure out how to load up 2 player roms, would be to remap the start button to the turtle/simpson/xman you want.
If you are helping someone and expecting something in return, you are doing business not kindness.

There are many 4P games (mainly from Sega and Konami) that are in MAME as main set. I prefer to take 2P set and don't bother with tricks.
