A new update has been released for Solid Gunner Complete! The code for the launcher has been heavily optimized, adding DEF commands for the menu and list options along with other improvements, making the code smaller and much easier to read. There's also an information box on the touch screen that describes the option you're highlighting. A new option, anti-aliased lines, has also been added and is enabled by default for New 3DS and Wii U. Disable this if it causes slowdown. Big thanks to niconii for the anti-aliased line library.
Solid Gunner Complete is a modification of Solid Gunner. It includes several options and bug fixes the enhance the gameplay experience and make the game better!
So, what’s different?
A lot. First, there’s now an options menu. The options menu allows you to choose several different options to change the gameplay to your liking. A documentation of these options can be found below. Second, a lot of grammar has been fixed (goodbye, “Extend”). From the story to the boss intro, I fixed all of the grammar errors. Why? I don’t know, but I did it. If you prefer the old grammar, you can change it in the options menu. Third, the unused ship, Type-F (shown in the gameplay screenshot), has been restored via editing the sprite definitions and some code. It can be chosen via the options menu. Beware that the ship type menu has replaced the shortcut for choosing your ship at the title screen. Fourth, you can now choose what music you would like to hear throughout the game, from either the original Solid Gunner (the one shown on the English SmileBASIC page), or the revised version, which has more original music. In addition to a lot of this, many options for unused features were added.
Where can I find information about the options I can choose from?
You can see information about the option you're highlighting on the touch screen.
What are you planning on adding?
I’m planning on adding a multiplayer feature, which will allow two players to play the game at the same time. I may also add some additional things that I’m not sure about right now.
I want to request a feature!
Go right ahead! I’m open for suggestions, and maybe I’ll yours to the game someday!InstructionsOpen --SGCOMPLETE-- (the Solid Gunner Complete menu). When playing the game for the first time, you will need to do this in order to create an options file. After an options file is created, if you want to jump right into the game, open SOLIDGUNNER_C. Just press B at the title screen to head into the Solid Gunner Complete menu from there.NotesI made this program in my free time as a self-project. I wanted to see if I could make a game like Sonic 3 Complete in SmileBASIC, and what better way to do that than by modifying Solid Gunner, an iconic game of SmileBASIC? So I did just that, and Solid Gunner Complete was born. I hope that this project turned out well, and I’m open to suggestions for it.
