Other: Castlevania 30th anniversary
« on: May 13, 2017, 01:46:23 am »

Update By: kya

According to Wikipedia, the NES release of Castlevania has recently turned 30. On this occasion a facelift patch for the game is released. The graphics are mostly transferred from the game's mobile phone version. The missing tiles are taken from Vampire Killer, Castlevania Bloodlines, or
touched up. Nothing else is changed - the gameplay is left intact. To play the game on Windows, you should load a Castlevania US ROM into a patched Nestopia UE emulator available here:

The Count is still ready for a rematch. Are you?

Yup, Win10 Defender says it's a trojan. Who knows, emulators always come up as false positives, but someone else is welcome to try it and let me know. :)

Anyways this isn't a ROM hack, it's an emulator hack. It uses the CV1 ROM untouched. But, it's just a news post, so whatever.

Yeah, I say it's a fluke. I'm sick of emu/hacking things always reading false pos's.

Just sandbox it or put it in a non-networked virtual machine if you really want to play the game. I honestly wouldn't trust it...

The emulator is probably getting malware flags because it's modified. Virus scanners are probably comparing the modified version to the official one and think it was modified for malicious purposes... :D

Could have debugging features that are tripping it.

Windows Defender is lacking at best and gets in the user's way more often than not. Do yourself a favor, remove it and use a competent antivirus/antimalware suite like Avira, Avast or Comodo.

And Castlevania never looked so good!

Speaking of, Avast said nothing.

It happened to me the same with some translations of emulators that you create, it is a pity I wanted to share in the site, but i thought it better to avoid inconveniences, if anyone is interested the list is:

FCEUX | VirtuaNES | Nestopia

Gens r57shell mod | Kega Fusion |Gens32Surreal

DeSmuME  (EspaƱol) ;)

Personally I would love more information about this custom Nestopia build. It allows graphic packs?

This is really fantastic work. I was always wondering if it could be possible to enhance the NES graphics with Graphic Packs without patching the Original ROMs. This Emulator proves it that it is indeed possible. I hope someone with the knowledge can make a NES Emulator (or other Systems) which supports this sort of Graphic Enchantment via Graphic Packs. This is a big step in the right direction as far as modding/hacking goes. :thumbsup:

From the looks of it, the emulator transforms the tiles when rendering, based on palette and VRAM, using an external image.

Just a tip:

If an exe has the word "patch" in the title, it will be flagged as a virus one way or another, period. Y'all need to get more creative naming your programs.

Very interested in the nestopia build too as the hd nes emulator is terrible to work with.
