Contra Hard Corps Hit Points Restoration Hack

Hack of Contra: Hard Corps

Description:

This is a patch for Contra Hard Corps (U) for the Sega Genesis. In the version of the game that was originally released in Japan, it was possible to take three hits before dying. For unknown reasons, this functionality was removed when the game was released in the US, making the game vastly more difficult in the process. This patch restores the ability to take three hits, complete with the life bar.

In addition, this patch does the following:

  • Restores the three cheat codes that were also present in the Japanese version but removed from the US version.

(Note, however, that unlike the Japanese version, these codes are entered on controller ONE.)

  • Up to ten lives can be selected in the menu. (The default is three.)
  • Player 1 and Player 2 can now select the same character.
  • A new code is available that takes you to the game’s debug level! Press Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, C, B, A, Up Down.
  • Note this patch can be applied on top of M.I.J.E.T. Enhancement Hack, however the check will need to be manually corrected prior to being playable. Nemesis_c has created a bat file to fix the checksum for you Contra superpatcher.

The way is meant to be played

Reviewed By: Shogil on 20 Oct 2019

I remember throwing my pad in anger as I was making abysmal progress when I was younger. As soon as I learned that there’s such a thing as “3 hits before you die” that was added in the Japanese version, it was a no-brainer.
