Thank you man, looks like your Contra's one true fan Very Happy

Yeah, I know what you mean. I just backed it up today actually, And I have been doing so for a while. So no wrries there. Unless my comp crashes. NOOOOO Very Happy

But I will definetely need help, once the engine is completely finished, on level production. That one frame took about like 2 days to make it look perfect. And it hurts my head looking at a program full of 8 digit numbers repeating. So its definetely time consuming to make a full level. But Im sure the members of UTI and OLSoft would not mind helping out ! Very Happy

Oh and as far as everyone saying that I should add graphics... Frankly I think it looks great for a BASIC game and that its the tightest I can make the levels look, and smallest memory consumption i can use for them.

Its BASIC what do u expect Very Happy

Hey guys... You think I should make Contra's own forum on the Board, that way I can keep all my stuff in one spot?

or do you think the project is not worth it ?

Use a floppy, whenever you back it up on your comp, copy it to the floppy and put that somewhere safe (away from magnets and such Smile).

Quite true.

I definetly agree on this one, send a message to JBirk (or AlienCC??) and he'll probably set it up for you.
