Hi,

I received a copy of this the other night, and it seems to be suprisingly
hard to run on a non-japanese machine.
To run on a US genesis, I had to use a mega key 2, *as well as put a 3
button pad in the right joystick port*.

not a 6 button, that doesn't work, but a 3 button does.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

thanks,

John.

Yeah, there's a few other older games that don't behave properly when
a 6-button pad is used.

Seems like Forgotten Worlds is one of them...can't think of any others
right offhand.

Decap Attack comes to mind.

But it's not just to do with 6 button joypads. The game only works if I put
a 3 button joypad in the right controller socket.
If I don't put in any controllers, it fails to start up.
