Probotector (E) Hit Point Restoration Hack

Hack of Contra: Hard Corps

Description:

This is a patch for Probotector (E) for the Sega Mega Drive. In the version of the game that was originally released in Japan (as Contra: The Hard Corps), it was possible to take three hits before dying. For unknown reasons, this functionality was removed when the game was released in Europe, 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 European 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.

Ohhhhhh, this makes Probotector more enjoyable and easy (tired of losing weapons anytime when I’m being hit.)

It’s a bit tough to patch it but the result will compensate the effort.

Grab this patch if you want to relive some nostalgia, and play more casually thanks to the Life bar.
