MiSTer:
- Improved button/key remapping for game.
Now you can map one button to another button for convenience. For example game uses dpad UP for jump while you prefer to use a separate button for jumping. Also key can be mapped to another key for the same purpose. And of course you can map the button to a key if game doesn't support the joystick.
