Description 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.

What options are there?

There are several options that can be changed using the SGC menu.

Gameplay Options

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 if your suggestion’s good, maybe I’ll add it to the game!
Instructions Open --SGCOMPLETE-- (the Solid Gunner Complete menu) when playing the game for the first time. You 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. Notes I 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.

I actually tried to do this, but it got complicated and I gave up. However, I may add this in a future update once I know more about sprites. snail_ snail_ Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements OSP Contest 2 Contest Participant I participated in the second SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest!

Prefer WAIT over VSYNC? That’s there too!
what Also I wouldn't consider EXTEND to be a grammatical error since it's very common terminology in Japanese arcade games from this sort of era.

Programming Strength Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website Yeah, that’s a feature. As I showed in my resource (as well as many others), VSYNC and WAIT work differently. Enabling WAIT makes the game run on SmileBASIC’s buffers instead the monitor’s, which may be preferrable to some as most 2D games on SmileBASIC use WAIT 1. Also, I know, but I fixed it anyway. You can still get EXTEND back using the options menu though. snail_ snail_ Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements OSP Contest 2 Contest Participant I participated in the second SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest! Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself I would definitely disagree that "most games" use WAIT 1, pretty much every good game I've played (and program I've written) uses VSYNC instead.

Programming Strength Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website I know, but I put the option in there for people who prefer it (for whatever reason) and inside jokes, because why not? I personally prefer VSYNC because it’s faster, but maybe there’s just someone out there who prefers WAIT.
