Right! This seems to be all go now. The Amiga version of Speedball 2 is so much better than megadrive.

Thank you for your patience, Davpaz. More questions will follow.

What controllers are you all using?

At the moment I'm just using these cheap generic SNESalike ones. Fine for SNES and NES games, and once I remember which buttons line up with A, B & C, acceptable enough for the Sega systems.

Although I've got some N64 roms to load in, I think these controllers have too few buttons to actually get anywhere past the demo screen.

Last time I checked, my keyboard didn't have shoulder buttons.

I use one of these on my PC and it is excellent. I got mine off ebay a while ago and I'm sure it only cost my 6 or 7 quid. Highly recommended.

Retrospex do a N64-style USB controller that might be useful with those.

I've got two of the 8bitdo controllers that are designed for use with the Switch - they work perfectly, and are really good.

Being able to play Alien Breed '92 again is very good. Looking forward bashing through it. Some amiga games don't work for no apparent reason, but hey ho.

Great thing about Chaos Engine is the AI npc, I can give Big One a controller and she thinks we are playing together

Not gonna walk that one off.

What a game it is. Beautiful. It's quick, tricky and you can be on the wrong end of a beating very quickly.

Machine, presently. MrsA, soon. Although I dunno if introducing her to Speedball 2 is a good idea.

You need to sort out that aspect ratio before you invite anyone else to play with you. It's giving me the chills!

There was an Xbox game called Death Throw (maybe) that was a bit like Speedball 2. I liked it a lot.

I'm not a fan of 6 face buttons (i suppose i have a slow thumb), but this one has an excellent reputation for anyone with shitty thumbs like me:

I do use the Wii Classic Controler with an adapter, but the shoulder buttons get ultra sensitive.

Supremacy on the Amiga is a brutal resource management game. It took over 2 hours to vanquish the easy level opponent.

Lotus 2 seems rock hard. I cannot beat level one.

Desert Strike has held up well.
