I use the latest no$gba 2.6 (no debugger). I just got the rom today and started playing this game for my first time. I own the first ZX game, but not the 2nd.

There's 1 major issue im having in terms of controls. It seems i can't ever press 3 buttons at the same time. Ex: Being able to dash+jump, while holding down the shoot button, or pressing the shoot. It's really irritating me so much. :( Only can press 2 buttons at a time. I tried a bunch of different keyboard combinations, and it seems to work only if i setup really strange combinations where i can not manage to ever play with my fingers. But if i try combinations that I have an easy time pressing with my fingers like:
Z = shoot, X = Jump, C = Dash ...it just wont ever work. :(

Why is this ? This setup works totally fine for other emulators like SNES 9x, and VisualBoyAdvance in terms of me playing megaman games. But not this.

The game runs perfectly 100%, 60 FPS, flawless...but it's going to be so hard for me to ever enjoy playing if i can't get it to allow me pressing 3 buttons at the same time like other emu's. :(
--------------------------
Also 1 more question. Why is all the information missing from the pause menu screen: Like the time, E-Crystals, and lives

Is this a problem with the emulator ?

mmm Well i managed to find a setup that works. Although not quite comfortable to my fingers. But i guess it'll work:
S = Shoot, X = Jump, C = Dash ..so now i can press all 3 at once.

What about the missing information on the pause menu like that?
I don't understand.
It shows up in the Ideas DS emulator, but the game is horribly messed up in that emu, so only option is no$gba. Im still curious.

Try using NO$Zoomer 2.3.0.2 and try using any EX.
If this doesn't work, try Desmume (if you have a good computer). :D

If you have tried changing the renderer and those items have not shown up in the pause menu then I am afraid that's just the best the emulator can do at the moment. If you have a processor with fairly high clocks you may want to give DeSmuME a shot.

Oh hmm. I just got this no$zoomer that lex light mentioned. Messing around with it for awhile since this is my first time hearing of that program.
At first i kept messing around with the size of the emu screen trying to get it bigger when maximized. So the ratio options is really the only way to get it, well I got it though. I just put it at 50%, since the bottom screen isn't too important with information. :p

But well those EX options are all turned on by default, it wont even let me turn off any. Didn't affect the pause menu in any way. But i noticed that when i set the render option to "direct X 8" it made the emu/game run even more smoothly than before. the top of the window's always saying 100% - 60 FPS, or 59-61 FPS. :)

I know the whole pause menu thing probably isn't really that big of a deal, just was weird not seeing the information (and still dont) But okay i'll try desmume soon.

NO$Zoomer only fixes such rendering problem with no$gba 2.6a which is currently ethically unavailable as donations are down and have been for a long time and it's the current donate to get it early version that's why it did not help you.

That's because controllers don't have a keypress limitation the way almost all aside from the most expensive Gaming keyboards have.
