Here we have Genisto again doing what nobody could have seen coming.
This updated movie demonstrates very well how important accuracy can be (by being half a minute faster than the previous version).

Obsoleting Movie
This is a historic movie, submitted and obsoleted before the creation of the database-based (and wiki-based) site engine, before July 2004.
It was inserted to the database in a history revival project by Bisqwit in autumn 2006.
This movie is 1:23.1 faster than the previous movie by Provonost. This movie takes better care in optimization but fires many stray shots. Unlike the previous movie, this one uses the autofire key. In fact it leaves it on for extended perios often, even when there is nothing to shoot at.
This movie takes advantage of the single stream technique, but not until halfway through stage 2.

Contra completed fast with one distinct goal: do not kill, unless absolutely necessary to complete the game.
This movie is 46.95 seconds faster than the preceding version due to better boss fights, a jumping glitch in lv 3, and the use of the spread gun. The ROM change counts for about 27 seconds of the improvement. Also, the author better achieves the pacifist goal by not killing the level 5 tanks costing about 9 seconds.

Looks like the bare-chested man decided to bring his friend along for the ride this time. Using two players at once, adelikat brings us one step closer to perfecting Contra. This run displays many new time savers, including spread gun manipulation and 2P death skips. More details can be found in the submission text.

Note: This game was released under different names, such as 魂斗羅 (kontora) in Japan, and Probotector in Europe. GryZor is also used in Europe on some other systems.
