Thank you for your help FAST, I really appreciate it, although I'm still a bit lost.
If anyone likes YouTube reviews, here are some very good reviews of Super RC Pro AM and a retrospective on the game series.

Ok. Incredible. I'm goofing around with BGB.
1.) I duplicated the BGB folder and named one executable BGB1.
2.) I ran both copies of BGB.
3.) I set one copy to be controlled by my gamepad. The other to be controlled by keyboard.
4.) I loaded both copies of BGB with Super RC Pro Am.
4.) Under the BGB 'Link' menu, I set one to Listen, and set the other to Connect. I didn't mess with the link numbers it came up with.
5.) I pressed Start on one, and Start on the other.
6.) The two copies of BGB were linked!
7.) At first I couldn't figure out how to get controller input to register on the window that wasn't "in front". This was solved by unchecking the boxes for "Game Controller Works Only If App Has Focus", and "Keyboard Works Only If App Has Focus".
8.) Ok. Done. But no matter what I do, the keyboard controls BOTH, and the Gamepad controls BOTH. Despite one BGB having different keyboard settings. Despite one being set to Joypad 1, the other to Joypad 2
I've tried everything in the options I can think of in the options/settings...
Ok. So, not quite there yet.
But it does seem to work in theory.
And I've solved some mysteries I had. If you play linked, the items on the track on your screen can only be picked up by you. So everyone gets a letter, everyone gets an upgrade, and presumably, everyone gets their own ammo.
So far this seems really really promising!!
So I'm playing around with BGBs cheat searcher.
I know you start out with 3 continues. I double checked.
But if I first search for values equal to 3, then use a continue, and search for values equal to 2, I sometimes get zero address results. Other times I get several.
So... Maybe there is actually no way to mess with the number of continues
. I'm starting to think that if it were possible someone would have figured it out already.
