Why not have a speed run leaderboard?

Not a huge fan of hitless achieves, especially those that require a lot of time investment before needing to reset.

I'm revisiting this soon. Also I'm pretty sure there's no in-game timer for a speedrun leaderboard. I plan on removing the achievement for beating the game on Hard without dying.

Demoted 3. If you don't feel like the set is good, leave a suggestion, because I don't see how I can improve it further.

Going to recheck the actual code of some of these soon, because it was only my 2nd set and I know the RAM in this game is bad.

Hi Evereyone....I asked meleu to link the hash 01e10d6afdd0c4a3e160ebb7286c18ba to this game. It's a MSU1 patch for better sound effects.

lol I quit before I beat stage 1, I took a look at the achievements and ultimately decided "forget this crap", I've already completed this game anyway on the Contra Collection on Xbox One

The game is already hard enough. Ridiculous cheevos. Looks like they have a fetish for "not getting hit"
