IIRC it's not working. There's some more info in this thread - http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,161667.0/all.html

In Cruis n World I can't put it in manual shift. No choice option appears. The game starts directly on automatic. I already tried to solve it in the test menu but there is no option for that. Can someone help me?

The above info is no longer true. Someone else opened an issue in Mame regarding networking on this family of hardware (in reality it's a CPU mailbox bridged together similar to the Naomi multiboard system). There's even worse problems for other games that do not support LAN.

midvunit.cpp linking (Cruis'n World, Cruis'n USA): https://github.com/mamedev/mame/issues/9958

Bus network topology support: https://github.com/mamedev/mame/issues/9101

You can view a list of all the unsupported LAN capable games I listed here: https://github.com/Hydreigon223/mame/wiki/Arcade-Networking-QA

In Cruis n World I can't put it in manual shift. No choice option appears. The game starts directly on automatic. I already tried to solve it in the test menu but there is no option for that. Can someone help me?
Use Cruis'n World v2.4 instead of v2.5 because the latter was developed as a conversion kit for Hyperdrive arcade cabinets. Midway programmed this version to skip the transmission select due to Hyperdrive cabs not having a shifter to begin with.

I donít have a manual option in my Crusn World so I will have to check that out.

I added custom race leader code to Crusn USA and Cruisín World. As soon as these are linkable I will make sure the code works for two (or 4 for World) players. I will post the code tomorrow in case anyone else wants to do this for games that donít support it back in the day.

Just in case a Mame developer or people working on Crusn link mode see this forum post, I noticed that the dip switch settings in the Mame tab menu show question marks for the dip switch related to link lan mode. I looked at the manual and the dip switch 6 is the link lan mode and dip switch 7 is not used even though Mame acts like it may be a lan option. Dip switch 8 is the master/slave switch though.
