Hello,

I wanted to give a feedback about the GLA Demo (player) vs USA Superweapon (AI) challenge (Contra 009 Beta version).

 

I played in medium mod and manage to kill the ennemy after like 2 hours... You know there is some water between us and the AI main base...The problem is that we got the tunnels ability (the one that can spawn anywhere in the map) but we can do it only on our island... So I had to rush airports and suicide planes to win... I also captured the ennemy supply stash (thanks to the ambush stuff) to have some copters that can carry troops but this isn't very effective ! 

 

So, is this tunnel "problem" on purpose ?

 

 

 

Ps1: The challenge that comes after is against GLA Assault General, I survived 30 minutes with good defences... Then they sent to me the little gift (3 headed missile) that comes out the Jihad Temple ! XD This superweapon seems the be very very cheated, like more than the Nuke General's 3 headed nuclear missile... Is this normal ?

 

Ps2: Sorry if I made some mistakes, I'm not English ;)

@Super Weapon Challenge: No, the tunnel problem is not made on purpose. It is caused by the fact that in Contra, GLA launches all general's powers from a unit (Command Truck) and not a building (Command Center). And here comes the bug. Units can't deploy powers if they can't reach the target area by land. This was fixed by editing some code in map.ini in 008 Final, but the map.ini got messed up in 009 Beta. It will be fixed again.

 

@Assault Challenge: Yes, it is normal.
