Eh, it's already at the max speed moving two pixels each frame :P

Also, it seems SC does support the 96th column. Maybe Axe doesn't? I don't see why it wouldn't though...

I have a problem with X=96 and Y=64 in Axe too.
X=95 and Y=63 is the most bottom-right pixel, way in the corner.  Remember it counts from zero ;)

Yep, and that's why I want to port it as close as possible :)

There's an online emulated version here: http://nintendo8.com/game/60/contra/

Soldiers work already, but I managed to glitch the enemy engine right before the demo was released so I didn't include it :P

I definitely need to work on bosses. Still haven't figured the engine out yet.

Also, if you need to add more to your post, you can use the MODIFY or QUICK MODIFY buttons at the right side of your post instead of double-posting :)

By the way Deep, shouldn't the entire screen become dark instantly on launch, with the title screen scrolling in afterward? Because in the original the screen was all black when it did.

Unfortunately not yet, as I didn't have much time to do so.

Yeah, it should. I messed that bit up when I released the demo. Should be really easy to do.

Not much of an update, but a couple of screenshots:

Done.



And some spread fire testing (best part of the original game ;)).

Aaand back to this...

How is it going adding the masking and outlines?

Still haven't gotten around to it (I really should though). But I did a weapons engine rewrite to get spread fire working :D

And I finally figured out why my enemy engine keeps glitching randomly. That was one annoying bug :P Haunted me for a month. See this post for more info.

This looks pretty sweet. How are you going to handle two-player, by the way?
