Which emulator are you using?

And I've noticed with this game, unlike TMNT and Zelda, where taking a hit was ok, you've really got to focus.

Wherever you are, be there.

I'll give a hint, not that anyone needs it:

Keep in mind the goal. It's not a speedrun. It's not a murderfest. It's not a high score challenge.

The person who gets furthest into the game wins.

Slow down and plan your moves, there's no need to rush (but don't slow down too much. This game likes to kick you while you're standing around).

I realised that, my biggest cause of death is rushing. urgghhh.

I'm using Nestopia, which has a built in recording function. I'm not sure if it records wrong or if it plays back wrong though. Every single run that I record plays back as a guy jumping to the LEFT off the first fucking cliff, between repeatedly pausing and unpausing the game. So fucking annoying. It's entering in nonexistent bullshit commands and basically doing nothing that I originally input.

What's more frustrating is that I'm finally getting to the later levels, but I know none of my progress is actually being recorded. It's pretty fucking lame.

I forgot this one, but "Barrier", the one that makes you invincible. Since it doesn't alter fire in any way it's legal right?

I've done successful runs of the levels where it's needed most without it, but am curious if it's ok to pick up.

Yup, its fine.
Also could everyone please include the version of the game you are playing from now on, the actual file, when trying to view them I am getting errors telling me that it's not the correct one.

Japan, UK, America... Contra HAD to be complicated Razz

A bit off topic here, but I think I've figured out the "sick and twisted" game you want us to play in 2 weeks.

That was the funniest video I've seen all day. As soon as Mad Dog stops running I can just picture you staring at the screen and saying, "Son of a BITCH".

I'm sure we've all played this game a million times now...

You know how I keep dying? An enemy where there shouldn't be one. Of course, he's armed, and I dodge the bullet, and touch him. Instant Black Plague kills me upon touch.

I'm sure you'll say something about there being "random" enemies, but that's not really true. There's like 4 or 5 different variants the game throws at you. This time, one stupid enemy made a cameo out of order and killed me.

I've also enlisted the help of some Gosling rum to help me play, or curse more. I'll let you know later on which one.

I can definitely beat Contra without dying, but with no power-ups? Nope.

I like these Challenges though, I'll have to get in on the next one.

I plan on making the Highlight Reel this round Very Happy

...

IS there going to be a Highlight Reel? I remember Syd saying he wanted to do an article or something on this Challenge... surely there will be some moments that you can take out and look at, laugh at, or go "cool!"
