Summary0006437: 2nd fire for jump - feature request
DescriptionCan you please add support for 2nd fire for jump on normal joysticks?

CD32 support mode includes buttons to shortcuts but nothing for jump.
Steps To ReproduceTo normally jump you need to hit Fire + UP + direction (Left/Right)
This is rather difficult for some users.
Additional InformationUsing the WHDload source code, I added the following to apply a patch myself using copy of the original code and adding the 3 last operations.
But it would probably be better to add and combine this to your main source.

PL_PSS $9BC2,_joystick_2nd_button,$4a
PL_R $9BC8 ; writes the opcode for the RTS instruction ($4e75)

                    BTST.B #$0006,$00dff016 ; check for 2nd fire
                    BNE .no_2nd_fire ; button not pressed
                    OR.W #$81,(A0) ; adding fire + up = $81 = 10000001 using logical OR.W

I actually ended up using OR.W #$89,(A0)
This allows to to jump towards the direction we are facing..
Jump "up" was pretty much useless and can still be performed with the old style control if needed.
