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 chreat 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.

Good, but not perfect

Reviewed By: nezumi on 09 Jun 2012

This hack does everything it says it does, but what it says it does is not enough to restore the original Japanese difficulty. The Japanese version had unlimited continues, rather than the limit of 5 in the US version, and this patch fails to address that.

That said, this still does a lot to make playing the game less painful, and is the best option currently available – if you’re frustrated with the US difficulty, give it a try.
