Hack of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin


This is a minor modification for Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin that adds the darkness effect that was only used in a few rooms to the entire game in order to add a little atmosphere and challenge to the exploration. Not for people who like the game to be easy. This mod can be used by itself but is designed to be work with LagoLunatic’s DSVania Randomizer:

Apply to a clean rom BEFORE using the DSvania randomizer using xDeltaUI:

Known bugs:

  • Some cut-scenes as well as teleporter rooms will cause the darkness to appear buggy.
  • Occasionally some rooms may not load the darkness effect at all, likely due to an overflow of objects in the room or on screen at once. Most noticeable in the Dark Academy area
  • Some background objects or visual things had to be removed from some rooms to make room for the darkness effect. Such as the red moon in some of the outdoor areas of The Forgotten City

The creation of this mod was only possible using LagoLunatic’s DSVania editor:
