    Formatting error with Headline, it was necessary to remove the Italics bbCode. I assume that bbCode doesn't work in the entry box for Headlines, not that it matters. That was unknown to me, this being my first review entry. Also some minor touch-ups to the main review text, and placed [List] bbCode for the Luna and Dryad subsections. That hopefully improves the readability of such a lengthy text block!

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - Quality hack

Hack of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Description:

This hack brings some quality fixes to the original version of the game for PlayStation.

Main features:

  • Removed black bars on the top and bottom of the screen (ingame, menu, final scene);
  • Updated the tile maps of all locations to increase the visible area of the screen;
  • Unlocked and finalized rooms under the hatch (at the entrance to the usual and reverse castles);
  • The positions of some menu items have been changed (expanded backgrounds & frames, etc.);
  • Impossibility to leave the castle through the gate by playing for Richter;
  • Impossibility to keep the initial equipment of Alucard (avoiding a meeting with Death, using the trick with a wolf, is no longer possible);
  • Impossibility of going outside the castle in the location of “Royal Chapel” (in the form of a bat);
  • The loading rooms on the global map are now highlighted in white;

Changes in v1.2:

  • Adjusted height of the magic pillar when using the cross by Richter (ingame).
  • Updated the tile maps in locations with emerging mermans from water.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night [SLUS-00067] (NTSC-U only)
  • CRC32: acf987e8
  • Patch format: PPF
  • Readme file attached

Nice

Nice improvements. Looks good.

When combined with LandonRay’s Hardtype hack (hardtype first, then quality) AFTER you’ve gone to the library and returned to the tower (will be fogged), killing a golden medusa head in the tower from then on will freeze the game.

Thanks.
