Thank you for your reply.
I was starting to think that this was a hopeless attempt, I don't think many people have played the original. I can see those glitches myself and am working on them. The aim here is to get it to play like the actual game because i want to use it for my own game. Once i get it the way i want, i will then start to replace the sprites, backdrops and bounding boxes n such, i figured this was a good way to get some half good controls working.
