    I want to make it more apparent, without having to read the whole review, that there is a way to fix the glitches so that others don't review this patch based on a glitched version. To give the patch it's proper due.

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.
