Welcome back to Contra. It's been a long time. Some people thought we are dead, others thought we are having a super nice vacation. Unfortunately, we were not on a vacation, but fortunately we are alive. That's enough about us. You came here to hear about Contra, right?

First, we'll start off with some new models. Dcesarec presents you the new US drones pack.
From left to right: Zodiac Drone, Stinger Drone, Battle Mechanic, Jet Sniper Drone, Scout Drone and Hellfire Drone.

Second, we have fixed Observer interface. Coordinates now properly match the new interface, which was introduced in 008 beta. Generals' icons are now displayed instead of vanilla faction icons.

The general's portrait can be seen when a player is selected.

Third, we have a new launcher for Contra. Contra now works in conjunction with other mods. But that's not all. You can switch between new and vanilla soundtracks, new and vanilla unit voices. Language and start options are easily selectable too. Made by Predator_BG.

And finally, a new trailer for the upcoming 008 final (big thanks to SmokeMelvin)!

We have recently started testing Contra online to find any bugs and imbalanced stuff. Challenge maps are also being tested. We hope you enjoyed this update. We are not dead.

Wondrous return.  I always get at least 1 person a month asking me about Contra and where it went.  I'll send them back your way, Mr. BG.

Thank you! We have been posting news on ModDB (http://www.moddb.com/mods/contra) before we got forum leading rights from Revora Staff. Creator has abandoned Contra, and he was the one posting news here.

Thanks! DCesarec redesigned the drones recently.

USA drones got redesigned... after some bad comments, and some thinking.

- Upper row from left to right: Battle Mechanic, Zodiac Drone (AKA Point Defense Drone), Hellfire Drone

- Lower row from left to right: Scout Drone, Stinger Drone, Jet Sniper Drone

Drones also have a new feature, flashing light. Light is divided in two groups. Red light for battle drones, and blue light for support drones. So any player can easily recognize which drones are on the battlefield.

Hello Contra team. :D I'm saddened to hear that Creator left but I'm glad to see you two taking on the reins of this old and amazing modification. I also downloaded Beta 2 as soon as I could and began testing it with my favorite general the laser general!

 

Unfortunately, I tested it in the challenge mode, and the first general you face in challenge mode is the airforce general. As you guys probably know the map crashes after about 10 minutes of playing. I'm not here to complain about it though. :) I'm here to tell you guys that I've come up with a small fix for it. I've simply went into the map editor and added a trigger that make the mission complete as soon as it starts. It's not exactly a bug fix for the problem but it is a hotfix for those that want to play their other generals through the challenge.

 

As I tested it, I couldn't put it back into the FinalBig. (Might just be my own noobiness though, I doubt it's the game's fault) and a quick easy way to fix it was to add a folder called "Maps/GC_AirGeneral" and put the new map in there. If you guys would like I can give a download of the map or you could do it yourself. (It's really easy, not even kidding) and the fact that you just plop the maps folder into your generals directory makes this a quick simple fix for it. ^^

 

Any questions or comments, get back to me on here. ;)

 

It's great to see you guys keeping the mod alive again. If I can help in any way please ask and I'll try my best. (I'm shit with scripting but I played with the game's unit code and such a long time ago and some of the knowledge has carried over)

 

Regards,
