Hack of Contra III: The Alien Wars


Contra III: The Alien Wars uses slow memory banks (it’s a SlowROM game), this patch moves all important banks to the fast location. Now the game has way less slowdown.

This is a good solution for cheap flashcarts users.

Also works great with the SNES Classic

Reviewed By: Samus12345 on 23 Nov 2021

One big problem with the SA-1 patch for Contra III is that save states don’t work properly with the stock emulator on the SNES Classic, but this patch works with it without issue.
