1.4.0 [nervegas] Added HSyncs for overclocked situations (DMA, etc)
Added 512 clocks for DMA writes
Fixed vblank flag (set @ 240), rolling thunder levels fix
Fixed vblank end = scanline 261 (0-indexed)
Added support for player 2 controller (touch top gray bar)
[jordan] Added 8-step CPU cycle between IRQ and NMI
Moved CPU step to before sprite hit, fixed minor rendering
[nervegas] Added "mid-button hot spot" allowing both A/B to be pressed
by rolling the thumb from one button to the middle of both.

Note: You have to manually install this ATM, it is not showing up in the PXL repository nor Installer as of 10:30am PST.

Also, BattleChess now works! Finally, something like what they were playing in Starwars :)

The P2 Controller allows you to play 2 player games that take turns, like Monopoly or Wheel of Fortune. The Keys will turn blue to let you know you're using player 2's controller.

its good that the feature is possible, but its almost impossible to use both buttons unless you play with your fingers instead of thumbs

I don't think you're playing the correct version, it's totally possible to hit a direction and both buttons at the same time, check my screenshot above for proof.

Make sure you're using 1.4.0 which BTW is now available on installer!
