Isn't it supposed to have some sort of pass-through to allow a stick to
plug into it?   Although it's doubtful that 2-player exclusive games
would make much use of it anyway . . . Who'd save a game of Combat? :)

I think this one takes over the second port. There's another joystick port saving device that's been in development for a while that does allow pass-thru. Not sure if or when that one will ever become publicly available.

But yeah, when you're playing a two player game you're usually competing against each other. For me at least, high score saving is more important when I'm playing alone.

Another thing I forgot to mention that I think would be cool is to hack high score support for some original 2600 games. This would be pretty easy with some of the games that are already disassembled.
