See my previous post for the Midway Williams versions. More in depth in my Twinstick guide.

Twinstick without expense or mod - A simple Menu Setup - An undocumented feature via Two Player controllers

The PS1 has a unique capability in the Arcade Williams and Midway Arcade Classics series; full custom controls of any player controller for any player. Player two controller can be customized to work with player one. Robotron Player 1 can control movement and Player two can fire. Now if two Arcade digital sticks are plugged in, the player two stick can be made as the directional fire buttons. See where I am leading? Single player now has Dual Stick control just like the original Arcade! When I first discovered this I was truly back in Twin Stick heaven! Notice there are no hardware mods, just configurations in the game menu.

Fully customizable controllers and Arcade Dip Switches for lives and difficulty, Unlike the newer console Arcade Treasures compilation releases.

Oh ok - well that clears things up a bit -- thanks, all!

Note that these are good simulations, but still simulations and not arcade-accurate.
