Well, to update this thread in an interesting and embarrassing way.




I had a friend dig around for me a bit to see on what could be done about this name change bullshit a month back.  I got conned.  Everyone needs a hobby right?  Anyway.  Did my in-depth research on everything related to ROM's last night as I was furious about this let alone wanted to see where all the legal lines run.  Turns out I can keep Legends NES as an actual title as no one can do anything about it even if its from side sources.  If its from the actual source of Konami themselves then I have to change or in 99.9% of the time of what they make people do is cancel on what I'm doing from that cease and desist legal stuff they hand out.


I'm still new to all of this.  First experience for everything.  Did this make me look like an idiot?  Yeah, it did.  A total embarrassment  :P





With all of that said I'm taking the Sonia Belmont project out of Chorus of Mysteries and Cadence of Agony fanverse and setting this back into 1376 as Legends NES.

No worries, dude. It happens to the best of us.
I for one am glad it's back to being Legends.

Yeah,I agree with you Vanya and I think it should remain as a trilogy.

Also enjoy your break,Sinis. :)

Welp another month ended which was January and now it's Febuary,so I wonder what Sinis up to?

Around stuff going on this week I had time to fiddle and add a few more things into Stage 3, Dora Woods :)



Redoing some things for color.




Cave system, still working out the kinks.  There will be a background to it instead of being black.






Does this look familiar?  I hope it does as I'm trying  my best to recreate this certain water area from the video that was taken down.  Not sure if I will be going with a mountain range in the back as I'll add my own thing.








Stage 1 got a color edit as I'm changing certain things to start off the game with.








That's about all for now :)

i have to agree.

now, im not a fan of romhacks and im even less of a fan of castlevania (shoot me plz!)
yet... im impressed, im REALLY impressed. Getting me to be impressed over a hacked castlevania, you earned your cookie!

that forest screenshot is just absolutely amazing!

so, when do i get to play ? :P
In PSP we trust.

Thanks :)

Its a nod to Thaddeus's stuff though after working on mocking his stuff I kind of see where I need to improve on my things.  Once I'm done with Stage 3 I'll adapt his style into mine along with using those methods to redo stuff in VoH 2.




These are what I made for a new title to toss out the old one.  I'm leaning more towards the third one though need feedback on these.




Think I still can't design titles too well.  Thought I once did but dunno :p

Trying something different since the area seems a tad bigger with Shadow's patch.  I still plan on referencing the individuals for the translation patches of Vice and Shadow :)





Color palette for this?  Not a clue yet  :crazy:

Lovely work on the logo Sinis & I think that might be a good idea for an overhaul for VoH II,it'll look better then it was before :) I wish you look on your continuing work on your mods. :)

The 1st and 3rd one are good, the 2nd one looks like a downgraded version of the 3d one.
But if you were to go with the first one, you could change the font of the subtitle to be more simplistic so that it fits better with the outline.

I'm loving the new stage graphics, though they could use more variation in places.

Btw, how would you feel if I were to use some of your graphics for my hack(if I ever finish it, that is)?
Namely, I'm interested in the cross subweapon, it looks pretty awesome tbh.

There is more variation now compared to what I showed.  Squeezing in a few more things for the forest before I use the rest of the space for the cave systems and waterway area.  Title wise, went ahead to use the third one.


I don't care if you use the cross.  If  you need the YYCHR of it I'll email it to ya :)

No need and thank you. :)
Though I also meant to ask are you ok with me copying bits of your graphics in the general sense?

Stage is halfway done.  I'm out of practice with making trees so thought I'd make something similar to that in Order of Shadows.  Pretty close but I'll be tossing these out tomorrow to work on something better  :P

Finally spruced up some stuff to release a video of Stage 3, Dora Woods :)

The mist areas need to be frozen so they don't ruin the background  :P

will include scenes of images between levels as in GameBoy version for dialogue history

sonia's sprite is fine, but it seems very strong or thick for a girl
you value changing the sprite to another more slim stylized one with more detail like the power suit for Metroid Space Complex
your title screens are great, you should develop the title screen for the Metroid space complex project :thumbsup:
great job :beer:

I designed her in the style of Castlevania NES's format, to be different from her original on the GameBoy.  I have no intentions on changing her image.  Once this project is 100% complete people can do whatever they please to her image with their own copy of the patch :)


Well, I have two scenes planned but its for progression only as this will be a different story altogether with no Alucard in it.  Just depends if I can find someone to help in programming without arguing with me on what they want to do instead of listening and attempting the stuff that I want to have implemented.  All of my stuff is reasonable, just have to find that one person that is willing to volunteer in  helping  me out.  Tried programming and can't do it so I'm sticking to what I'm good at  :P


If MindFlower ever wanted me to redesign his Space Complex title I would do it.


Thanks :)
