Summary 08714: changela: Impossible to drive fast
Description It is impossible to make the car go faster than the slowest speed. The manual shows 3 speeds that can be attained (page 11 ):

0001 Low
0200 Med
0310 High

I got the pedal to the metal and the speed meter barely moves up more than if I didn't have it pressed. It also makes it impossible to get better ranks for bonuses like "Ace" or "Great" when arriving at checkpoints. The issue is also compounded by the fact that there is no way of getting to the service screen to see if the pedals are even working as they should due to another long standing bug

For some reason Free Game/Self Test are mapped to a single button in the inputs, and the manual shows that as a movable switch with 3 positions. Pressing the button adds a free credit but um yeah how to access the service mode?
Steps To Reproduce 1. Play the game and hold the accelerator down the whole time and don't hit anything that would hamper your speed.
Additional Information I put up a pic of the controls while the pedal was pressed and paused the game. Also one showing the attract mode going full speed.

Gas pedal value is now correctly:
0001 Low
0200 Med
0310 High

I also fixed test mode so inputs can be verified there (press F2 to advance to next test)

Looks like it was an old regression:

That commit changed IP_ACTIVE_LOW, IPT_UNUSED to IP_ACTIVE_HIGH, IPT_UNUSED when steering wheel is enabled.
