    Submission Message
    Not my finest run (I'm guessing - I haven't played this much) but when I saw how much more I needed to score to make much more ground than this on the scoreboard, I'll just go with this run...

    Video is of INP playback. INP/WLF zip attached. I saw some peeps from Erie put up a 2p score for this game today. Got inspired. Final score of 154,700pts. Thanks for adjudicating!

    - 0.149: Artemio Urbina and The Dumping Union added clone Contra (Japan, set 2). Added clone Contra (Japan bootleg, set 1). Note: This confirms that the current Japan bootleg came from an original release. Also using some info on the FTP added a second Japan bootleg set as reported by dump as well as correct one rom name. However there are no NEW roms. Changed description of clones (Japan) to 'Contra (Japan, set 1)', (set 2) to 'Gryzor (set 1)', (set 1) to 'Gryzor (set 2)' and (Japan bootleg) to 'Contra (Japan bootleg, set 2)'.

    - 0.141u4: hap changed main CPU to HD6309 as seen on Contra PCB, and set interrupt source to K007121. Fixed game freeze after the 2nd 3d stage's boss, before the level with horizontal scroll. Replaced M6809 CPU1 with HD6309 (12MHZ). Changed M6809 CPU2 clock speed to 3Hz.
    
    - 0.135u4: Fabio Priuli added driver data struct and save states to Contra. Added device versions of all the Konami custom ICs currently emulated in machine\konamiic.c and video\konamiic.c. Updated Contra driver to use the new code.

    -  3rd October 2009: Smitdogg - Andy Conroy dumped unmamed clone of Contra. I haven't looked at them closely and I don't know if they will all be added but... Cool news.
    
    - 0.131u1: MooglyGuy merged memory maps in Contra.
    
    - 0.126u4: Fabio Priuli added DIP locations for Contra.
    
    -  9th July 2008: Mr. Do - Contra gets a marquee from the BYOAC/CAG artwork, and the control panel instruction card thanks to Anoid.
    
    - 0.123u1: Brian Troha added clone Contra (bootleg). Changed clone (US bootleg) to parent 'Contra (US, Set 1)' and (US) to clone 'Contra (US, Set 2)'. Renamed (contra) to (contra1) and (contrab) to (contra).
    
    - 0.122u8: Zsolt Vasvari removed colortables from Contra and a number of other drivers, as part of a larger move to phase out old-style colortables. Changed palettesize to 4096 colors.

    - 0.108u5: Stefan Lindberg added clone Gryzor (Set 2). Changed description of clone 'Gryzor' to 'Gryzor (Set 1)'.
    
    - 0.70u2: Some Contra dipswitch / input fixes [El Condor].
    
    - 0.36RC1: Nicola Salmoria fixed sprites colors in Contra and other improvements to Konami 007121-based games.
    
    - 0.36b12: Replaced all 64k gfx1/2 roms with 256k roms in all sets.
    
    - 0.36b9: Added clone Contra (Japan).
    
    - 0.36b5: Added proms ($200, 300 - sprite and char lookup table).
    
    -  5th September 1999: Jim Hernandez fixed Contra PROMs.
    
    - 29th August 1999: Phil Stroffolino fixed Contra background palette bank.
    
    - 0.36b3: Yasuhiro Ogawa added clone Gryzor.

    - 29th July 1999: Phil Stroffolino improved the Contra driver, mapping unknown dipswitches and converting it to tilemaps. He also fixed a tilemap color marking bug.
    
    - 0.34b8: Changed YM-2151 sound to YM-2151.
    
    - 0.34b3: Juan Carlos Lorente added high score saving to Contra.
    
    - 0.33RC1: Changed description to 'Contra (US)' and clone 'Contra (bootleg)' to 'Contra (US bootleg)' and 'Gryzor (bootleg)' to 'Contra (Japan bootleg)'.
    
    - 0.33b7: Carlos A. Lozano, Jose Tejada Gomez, Phil Stroffolino and Eric Hustvedt added Contra (Konami 1987) and clones Contra (bootleg) and Gryzor (bootleg). Known issues: There appears to be at least one incorrectly mapped sprite late on the final stage. The weapon-carrying enemies in the "into the screen" stages are supposed to be colored differently (orange). A control bit in sprite RAM exists which seems to serve this purpose, indicating an alternate palette. Sprite horizontal position is sometimes off by 8.
    
    - 20th September 1997: arcade@zws.com dumped Contra (Japan bootleg).
