To make this run, I used FCEU 0.98.12 Blip-Win. The one blip modded.
The run uses no warps or passwords.
The only programming errors abused in the run are running through the plunger-looking-shooting-thing in level 1 and the Scatter shot concentration bug. Everything else is either strategy or long jumps.
  • takes no hits
  • no deaths
  • 1 player controls both characters
aims for entertainment and speed simultaneously.
Playing a 2 player game by yourself is hard, emulator or no emulator. To make this run, a lot of config changes had to be made during the run to accomodate the level. side scrolling levels (1,5,6,7,8) used one config, the base levels (2,4) used a different config, and stage 3 used its own unique config because it is upward-scrolling.
Bill was tired of defeating the red falcon by himself. This is why he wanted Lance to help him out. Lance has got Bills back, and Bill's got Lance's.

This is a two-player timeattack at Contra, but only one player is playing it this time. Entertainment and Speed are kept in balance with this run, and neither is compromised for the other.

If this movie is accepted, could you please make the thumbnail something like this?
              or
I personally would like any picture of my four-armed contra beast. But whatever you think will do will be fine.
thanks a bunch
