Good stuff Martin!
Probably unrelated, but I very occasionally experience a wierd phenomenon where after climbing a ladder (usually when trying to beat a barrel above) Jump man seemingly refuses to perform the necissary back-jump to avoid death and instead just runs away as the barrel hits his back, its like for a split moment after you dis-mount the ladder theres some dead frame that refuses to accept the jump input, but its very rare so I guess it could just be momentary MAME lag.
Still though, when it occurs its usually in that position (trying to climb a ladder and needing to back jump the split second you are up to avoid the on coming barrel)
I used to think it was just in my head intel (
) another MAME player mentioned it on stream one day.
anyway... thanks for posting, love seeing this stuff
