Oh my, how interesting. Also ReBirth music for the win.
Gonna give the lives system a good try. Is there any way to earn extra ones like from score?

Awesome, love the implementation of lives. :D

I hope this isn't too much to ask for, but could you have the Contra Doom lives system to work with Zandronum Survival? While you could just use sv_maxlives (in fact, I did that with the last version), I'd like to see Game Overs and gaining Extra Lives online.

You can earn an extra life upon reaching 20000 points, and then every 60000 points after that.

That one is a pipe dream for the moment. I might look into this some day in the future.

I think you should put in a new sprite for the hud weapon.

Gotcha, sounds pretty fair and should work well with massively populated maps.

I'm pretty sure he is already aware of that matter, we just need a graphical help. An Contra 3-Friendly Sprite donation for it, it is.

I've been trying to see what I could whip up, but don't count on it. Although I have done sprites before, perspective's not my strong point.

I got the first extra life into Going Down, Map 2 around the half-way point of blasting my way through it on Ultra-Violence, all kills. I imagine that on slaughtermaps and maps that throw a lot of shit at you, it's a pretty earnest deal, and you can just CVAR toggle limited lives off anyway if you think it's bullshit levels of hard.

The way the lives system is implemented is just... omg. Infinite continues with your score being reset. I'm actually really enjoying this mod!

Amazing.

That reminds me, I have several finished PWAD patches for Back to Saturn X Episode II: Tower in the Fountain of Sparks, Deus Vult II, Doom 2 the Way id Did, Going Down, Impossible: A New Reality, and UAC Ultra sitting on my hard drive. I just need to test them out, as well as make sure they work on the Zandronum version.

EDIT: A new teaser... now what could this be... ?
