Bill Rizer, from Contra, is a playable character in Super Mario Bros. Crossover.
I'm not sure. How fast is it supposed to be?
After playing the first Contra last night, I picked up one Rapid fire and it seemed much much faster than in SMBC. I don't know how else to explain it. I noticed the difference of speed in Contra but I don't really notice any difference in speed in SMBC. I don't know if my PC is slow or if the emulator is too fast. It may be worth looking into though.
So, a single Rapid upgrade in Contra was faster than the SMBC Rapid upgrade?
I have found the difference to be minimal (though still noticeable). I'll probably look into this and discuss it with Jay.
It may just be a consequence of different screen size. Then again, if it is, maybe the speed should be adjusted to compensate.
A test of Contra showed that it took about 1.5 seconds for a single shot to travel the length of the screen, and with the Rapid upgrade it took about 1 second for a single shot to travel the length of the screen.
In SMBC, it looks as though it takes about 2 seconds for a single short to travel the length of the screen, and with two Rapid upgrades it took just over 1 second.
So, it looks like Bill's shots travel slower than in Contra at first but about the same speed after two upgrades.
We may look into adjusting them more, but if the final speed is about the same as the final speed in Contra, then it's probably fine.
I'd like to invite people interested on Bill Rizer to vote in this thread.
... What thread? The link seriously doesn't work on my end.
i'm kinda happy to see you're here for reasons other than getting sonic into SMBC. i'm sorry if you're still doing it anyway.
he leads the sonic boll project
no it's not renex, he's the progammer
yeah, it started out as trying to get sonic onto smbc
but now i'ts a game of its own
Ok on topic please, sonic boll has its own thread
Just clarifying: I believe there is nothing wrong to invite people to a co-related thread.
Was I the only one that found this comment a little bit rude?
No, I'm not interested anymore in Sonic on SMBC.
But If you want to talk about possible interactions between Silver Sonic and Bill on imaginary Character Batlle Section, you're invited to post there.
Afirmative. I don't want a derail.
Back to topic.
Bill Rizer is, I believe, the most faithful of all the characters. It's kinda annoying, though, that the map starts over whenever you die as opposed to Contra.
Also, 16-bit Bill always uses The Alien Wars for his soundtrack, even though 16-bit versions of all the original tracks apparently exist: Konami Kukeiha Club – Fight of jungle
Sounds kinda genesisy. Makes my ears bleed like one.
A while back I updated Lance's 16-bit portraits so that his eyebrows match his 8-bit portrait (rather than being copied from Bill's):
I was reminded of this when I played 3.0 and saw that Lance still has Bill's serious eyebrows.
Do you think I should put these on the wiki?
Thinking if someone can include music from Super C.
Play as Lance.
Thanks. Now I have a request.
To answer the question in the title:
It's now the code to unlock all the cheats
I see this thread's name haven't changed, even after the "new name" poll and threads were made. Just sayin'.
I remember suggestions being made, but did the actual poll ever go up?
Separate names with a comma.
