Hi Haze, thanks for the info. I'm using MAME 188 by the way. Just tried various combinations.

On set 2, holding down 1+2 and pressing F3 has no effect. Holding down just 1 and pressing F3 reboots game (does not go into test)

On set 1, holding down 1+2 and pressing F3 has no effect.

Holding down just 1 and pressing F3, game goes into test.

On my real game, I admit, I only tried holding down both 1+2 and turning on (which works). I didn't try just 1 and just 2. I won't be able to do that tonight, I'll try that tomorrow.

But what about MAME? Is there a problem there? Holding down 1 + 2 definitely works in a real game and definitely doesn't work in MAME.
