Summary0005533: Second button does sometimes random things like PAUSE or EJECT (very annoying)
DescriptionThe Second button in Wing Commander CD32 WHDload does random things like PAUSE or EJECT which is VERY annoying, especially if in a very hard mission!!

(played with a second button only joypad - not using a cd32)

The second button is basicly the Afterburner (TAB)which is essential
but does weird things when pressed fast and often.

Sometimes i hit fire button 1 & and button 2 at the same time which is even more "dangerous" to get the Pause or the dreaded EJECT !!!

Super annoying when late in a mission and suddenly "EJECT" :(

Please fix this. Thank you very much (T_T)
Steps To ReproduceSpam the second fire button (afterburner).. maybe hit button 1 randomy at the same time. You get PAUSE or EJECT sooner or later. Sometimes not. its crazy !!
Additional InformationPlayed it on MIST AGA latest Core.

I use the maximal amount of Fast-Ram in the AGA MIST.
It states 0MB Fast-RAM here on Mantis, which is wrong.

Thank you very much Psygore (T_T)

Please test the attached slave 1.1, it should work better.

You are AWESOME Psygore !! (T_T)

This works like a Charm !

(Teseted for several hours and i did not have any EJECT or PAUSE interrupt;
just like it should be.

I am not sure if the problem was really connected to the Joypad/interrupt, but you fixed the random EJECTS !!!

Thank you so very much Psygore

Alert .... Alert !!!

I played it so much, and the new slave worked great so far; but yesterday in one of the hardest missions in all Wing Commander ... It happend again...

IT EDJECTed me....
(A message "Wing Commander CD version ...." was to see for a second.. then EDJECT)

I let as scream out, my Neighbours must have heard it XD

Man, i was so pissed XD

Anyway, Would be awesome if you could fix this. WC is one of my all time favorite games and the Amiga hassuch a great soundtrack AND it runs super smooth on an MIST FPGA Amiga.

Greetings and Thanks,

PS: There is also some weird thing (also in the OCS version) When you have ALOT of enemy ships in from of you ,, you CANT Shoot. Like the game is saying "NAH.. To much Shit on the screen, i cant draw no more pixels" XD

Really weird :)

Hi Psy (T_T)

I did play with the new AGA Slave for hours and also finished the Game.
Not a single unwanted EJECT so far.

Thats great !!! Thank you so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@retrogamer : You play (the OCS version) with an 68000 ? (7Mhz?)
              WOW XD You are a real Trooper !!! ;)

You could use the native install for the OCS Version, that comes with Wing Commander OCS; just an idea.

Greetings, Torti
