Burning Rangers: restored co-op mode

Burning Rangers: restored co-op mode 2024-06-07.01

Burning Rangers was intended to have a multiplayer co-op mode - the earliest previews of the game feature it, and a non-functional version of it can be enabled in the 1997-12-01 prototype. However, it was removed from the final release, which supported one player only.

This patch restores co-op mode. Player 1 can choose between Shou and Tillis as usual. Player 2's character will change in each mission:
  • Mission 1: Lead
  • Mission 2: Tillis / Shou (opposite of player 1)
  • Mission 3: Big
  • Mission 4: Tillis / Shou (opposite of player 1)

The camera follows Player 1 as usual, but Player 2 can teleport to Player 1's position by pressing A. Player 2 can't collect crystals or rescue victims, but can put out fires and attack enemies.
