I forgot to say that "Base 2 Challange" won't popup when you combine F with R...but nobody cares now, because i fixed it and now it should work perfectly.

The alien's lair challenge is broken. It's impossible to 200% contra

Updated Alien's Lair challenge and slightly changed it. You can't hit the pods or any enemies during the Red Falcon boss fight. If you are playing with save states and hit an enemy or pod reload a little before the final boss.

I'm confused, some badges I didn't earn! I beat the game just using the "M" with a "R".

Ace Soldier didn't pop for me even though I didn't use Konami Code, is it somehow broken with savestates? Beat first and second loop, even got the Gunless achievement, but no Ace Soldier, weird.

this game's leaderboards have a continuous starting point which means they are worthless, easily ruined in softcore.
