All of this talk made me realize something.  I should try to see if I can add the younger portrait when confronting Dracula.
That would be a thing worthy to do.

That would be really good. That way the story proposed in the game related to Richter's disappearance would be much more faithful.


You can use that image for Richter.

I just don't know if it would be cool to do that with Dracula since the photos of him younger don't cause much fear.

I think this Dracula X Chronicles game file would be the most suitable for Dracula

"Young Dracula" makes no sense.  Dracula is constantly revived and comes in many forms.  5 years would not age him.


This image would probably work best to make a portrait out of,  it is the closest I have seen to the style of the other games.

I found this portrait for Richter, maybe this one will be perfect for the Bloodlines stage:

This is perfect and I like it more than the one you used on your first attempt k0d.

Maybe a different portrait for the conversations at the ending depending on the costume you selected when starting a Richter game?

My suggestion would be to add this outfit from the official art to make the game complete as they did in the PS1 version with a mod.

See the video:

The already included version in the Saturn port is way superior, tbh. While the fanmade one looks nice, it looks like it needs better shading, as it was said it kinda stands out too much and feels out of place in-game.

While playing through the fan translation I ran into an issue. I had lost the Maria boss fight and had attempted to reload my save file. But when I did I got an error telling me the file "Could not load." This is unfortunate as I had gotten fairly far into the game. I was wondering if anyone had a similar issue?

Will your patch also fix the pixel distortion problems?

No, as that's not an easy fix. The graphics themselves were modified to have every 4 pixel doubled. It's not the Saturn doing any kind of stretching that can just be turned off. It would require redoing all the sprites, tiles, etc. for the game to put them back to their original aspect ratio and then recoding all the background tilemaps, sprite sizes, etc. to properly work with the updated graphics. It's not an easy thing to do and would effectively be a very involved process.

https://segaxtreme.net/threads/translating-dracula-x-sotn-beta-v1-02.24647/ The patch has come along. The only things not fully translated is the cutscenes.
