Double Dragon II

Post by zeusdaz »

Not a cheat as such but I was wondering if there was a way of creating a file I could drop into the DDII rom folder where those stupid damn controls could be corrected, in other words regardless if you face left or right the punch and kick buttons remain the same instaed of switching?!,...a so called HACK I guess.
DD1 was perfect but DD2 is a pain in the arse where the controls are reversed whenever you turn round, It's such a headache, I don't understand what the creators were thinking to mess with the controls like that,...is there a way to undo the damage?!

Why not a cheat?

Quickly knocked up this ROM cheat, only tested it for about 10 seconds and it seems to work. Might not work on later levels so you'll need to check.

Add to ddragon2.xml:-

Code: Select all

  <cheat desc="Select Button Method"> <comment>Allows you to have the same buttons regardless of the direction you are facing</comment>
    <parameter>
      <item value="0x2A14">Normal</item>
      <item value="0x2A00">Alternative 1</item>
      <item value="0x2014">Alternative 2</item>
    </parameter>
    <script state="on">
      <action>temp0 =maincpu.mw@8F4F</action>
    </script>
    <script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.mw@8F4F=param</action>
    </script>
    <script state="off">
      <action>maincpu.mw@8F4F=temp0 </action>
    </script>
  </cheat>
