Summary 08776: wheelfir: [possible] Black screen if both 'Player Number' and 'Number of Players' are set to 2
Description The game will not properly start leaving a black screen if both settings in communication options are set to 2 as if it's look for a non-existent first player.
Steps To Reproduce Go into test mode (press F2 and then start button)
Go into communication options (press down 7 times and then button 1)
Set both 'Player Number' and 'Number of Players' to '2' (press button 1, down and then button 1)
Exit communication options (press start button)
Exit test mode (press down 1 time and button one twice).

I had to include button presses due to the bad graphics emulation of this game making the text in some cases unreadable.
Additional Information Really this should be verified on PCB given it may not be a well programmed game.

I imagine that's "Slave" setting for the network, so maybe understandable it does nothing.

It seems Test Mode is by pressing F2. After doing that I get a flickering mess where it says something about joystick or steering wheel. Can't see any communications option.

Steps to Reproduce should always include what keys to press.

Haze: Would be typical so I'm not surprised if that were the case. The screen does say "waiting communication" and stays black.

Robbert: I may just update the steps to reproduce soon as the communication option is impossible to see since it blends in with other test.

First instruction should be: Go into test mode (press F2 and then Start button)

After that I was able to confirm the problem (if it is a problem).

There's a momentary message: WAITING COMUNICATION then black screen.
