Ok guys,

This time it is official. The final release date for Contra 83 will be; January 1st, 2005. This date is set in stone, and I believe it will be the most effective as far as Contra 83's popularity goes.

Now I know what you guys are thinking, "He is just going to skip this release date just like he did the one before!" Well that is impossible considering how Contra is done right now! Contra is officially done in my book, and technically I could release it as early as Sunday. However, I want to make sure that the OLS Website is completely updated and prepared for Contra as well as maybe buffing out a level editor between now and Jan 1st (not likely). I want to make sure I have good communication with UTI, and of course the Ticalc staff. I am going to make sure the releasal goes just as I envisioned it. It has been almost 2 years in the making and I want to ensure that one little mistake does not cause its downfall.

So when the ball drops on new years, rush to your computers...because Contra will be alive and ready. I give you my word. Smile

Very Happy Well,

Hopefully once I get a hold of some ticalc.org staff members, I will tell them when I want it released hopefully they will make a special upload just for it. If not, OLS will have it at 0:00 1/1/05.

I am unsure if UTI will be able to have it at the exact time unless AlienCC is there with me and can make the upload pending time non-existant. But overall OLS will definetely have it ready. Very Happy

It's not too hard to write a perl script to upload it at exactly that time so you can be busy having a life at 00:00 1/1/2005.

Zabotage has a download queue that everything must sit in before it is approved to show up in the download section. Each entry in this queue is given a Unique ID.

Bryan, if you upload this before hand, I can automate sending it to the download section at midnight based on that unique id while I'm off at the New Years Party with everyone else.

I just recieved a reply from Michael Vincent (TiCalc News Editor)

He, said reply to him when the game is released into their archives. Sad
So that means that I cannot guarentee the game will be on TiCalc by the exact time that UTI and OLS will have it.

Sounds good to me, once I get everything 100% ready, We will get together and I will upload it to UTI, and you can set it all up. Once I get off for Xmas break. I will get all that ready. Till then w00t! Very Happy

Things are going pretty well with the Contra preparation, Ive got a couple of web pages made and Andrew is working on some new graphics. I also created a nice collage of some nice Contra screenshots. Check it out:



Things look good...
