Contra Hard Corps: Stationary Fire+

Hack of Contra: Hard Corps

Description:

This small patch adds a new way to switch shot modes by simply holding down the MODE button on a 6-button controller. Holding the button down switches to stationary aiming while firing (Shot II), releasing it returns you to normal (Shot I) similar to how the R button works in Contra 3 on SNES.

There are 3 IPS files, one for each region. The USA version of the patch is compatible with the MIJET Enhancement hack, MrNemesis’ Hit Points Restoration Hack (combined with the MIJET hack or alone) and the IT.GAMER Ultra Hack 2.0.

A much-needed improvement

Reviewed By: lastdual on 10 Sep 2019

Compared to Contra 3, Hard Corps has long felt handicapped by its more limited controls. This patch takes one of the best features of the SNES control scheme and makes it feel natural in the Genesis game, markedly improving the basic gameplay. You won’t want to go back.
