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.

Hard to make it work, but it's worthy!

Reviewed By: Maeson on 19 Jun 2013

I almost gave up, because the Contra Superpatcher didn’t fix anything and the cheksum error appeared when loading the game.

But, I don’t know how, the last try I did worked… But Whatever.

The life-bar is great, and 10 lifes along the M.I.J.E.T Enhancer hack makes the game much more enjoyable. Even more if you play with friends that are not very skilled in Contra games.

Good Work, and thanks!
