[ Request ] Parasol Stars 2 button support and 68k quit key

I added a Mantis case for this, but I thought someone would see it here first.


Anyway the title says it all, please someone add 2 button support for it, so we can jump with 2nd button.

It's kinda difficult to play with a dpad using up to jump while having keep down pressed to keep the parasol open straight up.... and a 68k quit key would be welcome

Also, the game had some slowdowns when the screen was crammed. I honestly don't remember if the game did that when running from the floppy or not, I may check if you guys want, but if someone can confirm this is usual behaviour with the floppy version too, I'll be ok

Having second fire jump and up instead of down to keep the parasol straight up would be really great!

I second this request

Actually i requested that ages ago. CFOU! said that a jump button was planned. Meanwhile i use the great Rys MK II USB adapter and my original SNES pad+jump button (Rys supports that) and it works great.

CFOU seems to have dropped his interest in WHDLoad patches for a while now, so posting again on Mantis is probably a good idea, so one of the active patchers (StingRay, JOTD) can take the gauntlet.

I for one also second the motion for this very useful addition to Parasol Stars.

Also would like this - fortunately the source code is in the archive so any good WHDLoad slave developer should be able to pick it up (I think!)

@Shatterhand can you update your Mantis request to ask that UP by itself does Parasol up, not DOWN+FIRE? This is the same as other versions of the game I believe.
