Contra 4 (2007) is largely a combined remake of the early NES and SNES Contra titles, featuring remixed music and vastly improved visuals utilizing both screens of the DS as if they were one contiguous screen.

Watch Bill Rizer embark on a new colorful adventure in the shirtless land, this time making even less sense than ever before. To quote the game's ending: Whatever the truth may have been, it was lost to time as the invaders became a mere footnote in the pages of history. A footnote which read: they sure blew up good.

Amen.

2D levels are easy to improve. BUT 3D levels are TOO HARD! Until stage 2.

Stage 1: 3 frames saved.
Stage 2: 28 frames saved.
Note: To compare with the old movie, Just need to decrease frames of the lag.

But 3D levels are mostly different with these two emulators. I don't know if it's really due to different emulation. Because I see that old run is not very accurate. (The old authors press Y to shoot weapon C one frame by one frame.)

And maybe, I want a partner join in to help me do 3D levels' work.

Emulator: 0.9.9
Bus-level timing is ON! ON can be faster than OFF for this game.

I did it last year. And I have finished stage 1.

I stop doing it due to some reason. The most important reason is stage 2's boss. There are so many enemies on bridge. If I don't kill them, it will be too hard to past that stage.

Emulator used: 0.9.7 Bus-level Timing is On.
