I moved this to ROM hacking as it seems that this is something in constant development rather then an actual final release.

Notify staff if this is not the case.

i was wondering what was going on with this hack but didn't see the thread anymore. I forgot what the original game was. This is a great hack. The music remixes are pretty good.

Thanks for the bump.

I have been working on a new scrolling engine. I have all the code almost completely working on it's own. Soon I will merge it into all my old gameplay code.

The new scrolling engine will allow more than 2 screens per room.

Some rooms will be Horizontal scrolling and some will be Vertical scrolling (up and down).

The scrolling engine will still memorize every item on screen and record whether you've collected it.

It will allow for super fast scrolling without spilling over when you hit a the end-of-level.

Also it will allow 2 full active screens of enemies and level at all times, so things won't necessarily "disappear" once they're off screen.

I will also have the 2 screens saved fully into memory so I can switch to a full screen map or pause menu, and still return to the game screen unchanged.

I have also considered "wrapping" the levels for infinite scrolling but have decided against it presently.

Fantastic! With a new fully documented scrolling engine this will like the ultimate ROM for Castlevania hacks.

Be patient. It's not easy nor fast to rebuild a ROM into a completely new engine.

Nothing yet,

Now that I have the ability to scroll through as many screens as I want, I have to re-write all the collision code for the main character. So that is what I am working on now. It's coming along well I think.

I come across these weird glitches sometimes that make no since. Maybe it has to do with clocking. I will bypass a large chunk of code, such as the familiar code, and then the game will start jumping around. Or I will have to many EA's in the code and when I reduce them the game no longer glitches. I want to have all this fixed too.

Thank you, this hack/homebrew is taking forever I have to admit.

Good news. I think the game is stable again. I moved my scrolling code to be at the top of vblank and it doesn't glitch anymore. I hope it stays this way.

Now back to wall collisions. Very tricky when jumping to a scroll routine, but I have it figured out in my head.

I must admit your project is extremely cool. I hope that you keep it up, as it would be a shame, if your project would end up in development hell.
By the way, are you going to use iconic Castlevania soundtracks like Bloodlines and Dance of Illusions?

Indeed, everything seems to be coming along great. You know the old saying. Good things come to those who wait.

Old sprite from last year. It was later rejected because of the amount of resources it took to draw each frame.



It's based off this picture from the Vampire Killer booklet

Cool. Interesting spectacle, but yeah. Probably not worth the resources needed to make it happen.
How's the project coming over all?

Not gonna lie, the cape looks pretty cool and does seperate this hack from others with just the sutble change. But I understand if its more of a hinder than anything else. Can't wait for this game I'm looking forward to ths big time. Keep it up my man.
