Holy sh*t... I might give this a go, because the pain of losing will certainly be quick. This game is haaaard! o-o I doubt I'll get past the first level without save-states.

Give it a try Predabot Since there are not many players in the EMPL you will get some points quite surely... even with a very low score

WELL...! No surprise here... I got my ass kicked...

I tried a couple of times, and I think I'm getting closer to the first boss, but I only made it to the mini-boss on the first level, the guy in a tank. He blasted me..

Hey guys! I see that you already started "joysticking"

As i have to train (again) a new game, i'll post a score soon, today or tomorrow.

Damn, one day without internet nowadays is like having no electricity at home.

One day - one hour more like.

Contra is hard. My first go was about 7,000 pts. The shame.

What is your emulator of preference? Zsnes o snes9x?

I used zsnes for years and downloaded now snes9x which is much improved from last time i used it (circa 2000). But i can't use my joypad in it?

I use Snes9x here and of course you can use your joypad. Choose 'Input -> Joypad configuration' from the menu, click on the first box (Up) and then press the direction pad, analog stick or button on your joypad

OK it was because my batteries died again (too much use) and need a 12 hours recharge.

This Logitech wireless is great, but the batteries are a nuisance. I'm thinking of selling it and grab a USB one for sure.

Thanks TCD for the input

I completed this several times in 2 player co-op when i was a kid! and i was never that hardcore at games!!

(OT... Runaway, what a cool song)

I use Zsnes. I have always felt that it's been superior to Snes9x in just about every way. Pharos is one utterly cool guy.

In fact, I think it's the single best emulator ever made! Yeah, that's a mouthful, since there's the WINUAE and the MAME which has to do so much more, but really, it's just the full package that is so very well-done. Controls, compatibility, filters, interface, it's all just so, so smooth.

Thanks guys for your answers. Well i think i'm gonna stick with zsnes (also my favorite), following such rave reviews. I just wished it had a more windows-like interface, that's the reason i peeked an eye on snes9x.

Well tonight i'm gonna give Contra a go and rest Arcade Pool for a day or two as after making 200 000+ last Saturday i managed to put the picture in some strange dimension, so is much like 0 points to me.

I did TCD. Manually first where i believed it was and various other possibilities, then with the search tool. I've got all the suspect files of saturday but that to no avail. I suspect that was Picasa that somehow sent it to the limbo, as i was organizing some albums yesterday after our game.
