Ahem.

I've zoned an incredibly minor/inconsequential hack for Micro Machines (literally, one byte).

This sets Player 2's controller to joystick by default, so a keyboard isn't needed to play two player (so this makes it more suitable for AmigaLive, CD32 compilations etc. With this you can immediately play two player with no keyboard, before you needed a keyboard to at least set player two's controller to the joystick). WHDLoad and ADF versions included.

I figured it wasn't worth opening a whole new topic for every little thing like this that I do (and I'm planning a few more, primarily to support my CD32 2 player collection).

Damien (or if another Admin sees this), can you please change the topic here to something like "Earok's minor hacks" or the like? Cheers.

Official home for the random minor hacks ^

Regarding Vroom, I'll keep it in mind, but I'm not really sure there's much I could do with it. Adding accelerate to fire two might be an option (though it wouldn't help with the Speed King? I assume there's only one fire?) but setting it to fire one for example would mess with gear shift controls.

Any chance to set Zool OCS (Whdload) to music instead of sfx by default?, CD32load doesnt seem to work to button assign with it.

@AmigaJay please send me the files and I can have a look

https://mega.nz/#!krhTXJiD!nz3Jo2Igs...kzzz5EiHQpOXBs

Experimental fix for Whizz ADF OCS

Most versions of the game have an annoyingly fast timer, though this was fixed for the A1200 Magic Pack version. I've simply applied the timer setting for the A1200 Magic Pack version to the OCS version.

Since the patch is on a single byte in an area of crunched data, I'm not 100% confident my fix won't cause issues elsewhere in the game. (If anyone could confirm or deny, that'd be much appreciated!)

Posted the Whizz hack, as well as a minor hack for both SWOS 96/97 and 16/17 (HDD edition only - NOT to be confused with WHDLoad edition though it may be compatible by swapping the SWOS2 file).

It simply allows the port 0 joystick to be used on the menu from the beginning, it's normally disabled until a two player match is configured. Granted, there isn't much of a need for such a feature except that it makes it easier in certain scenarios (such as netplay)

@NeoHippie I'm not sure what the issue is? I can download and open the zip fine at my end. The zip contains HDFs this time which isn't my usual means of distribution but it was the format requested (so that they can be mounted and played from an emulator easily)

Republished the "Alien Breed Tower Assault HDD Edition" pack. It's not really a hack per-se but I figured it could go on that page.

What it adds is the intro video (AGA and ECS) and outro video (AGA only) from the CD32 edition to a copy of TA that can be played from a hard drive.
