Alright, you all don't get into too angry at me please. After all, up until now all of my changes have been free (and fixing the Overdrive Ostrich stage is still probably the biggest change). I know most up to 99% of the changes and hacks on this site are done without money being exchanged, and probably some of you are thinking I'm hijacking this program that wasn't even originally written by me. Unfortunately, the job market out here is pretty lackluster, and spending 2-3 hours programming on this when the only jobs in the area are forklift, or warehouse positions for min. wage is pretty demotivating. I'd rather be doing something like this, unfortunately it is iffy with the copyright and all. I was thinking Patreon, Kickstarter, or GoFundMe but I don't think I'd get enough traction to reach any goals.
I'd like to stay a member of this community for awhile, so don't be too bitter at me for wanting to make money for doing a hobby that I enjoy. I think everyone dreams to do what they love and make a career out of it. I will just look for a regular job in the area and make that a priority and do this in free time and spare hours, as usual. I appreciate all the feedback and help and input everyone has given, and I gave credit to many people in the github and Readme. Perhaps it is asking too much, even $5 for a cup of coffee, for donations. I don't know everyone's income and if a certain amount of money is too much for someone and I can't meet their deadlines I may just end up getting hate-mail and death threats.
I'm going to continue studying VRAM. There must be some place in memory, either RAM or ROM, where the size of enemy VRAM is stored. Once that hex value is found I can plug in equations in C++ and get those buttons to work. I'm guessing by the end of January that update will be done. Thanks for your input and I hope that we can all enjoy MegaEd X together.
