Indeed!

Thanks Supergamerguy!


So, I'm looking for a few volunteers to help out MindFlower with FamiTracker that can knock out my massive list of music tracks for all of my NES projects with some being converted over to MMC5 while others remain in their native sound engine format.  I do have the FamiTracker module that I can pass over to you.


Please do not cause me any drama, go rogue and do your own thing or steal stuff as I will not but putting up with any of that BS.  If you want to get in contact with me just PM me on here as we can go over details.  You may not 'look' at anything as this is for serious inquiries only.






Update to Castlevania Bloodlust Edition can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA_HEJGOT10

Keeping Bloodlust Edition's sound engine normal while expanding it to MMC5 for the extra goodies.  Huge thanks to Thaddeus's sprites for being out there on the interwebs to recreate this!




Other stuff right now.  Getting ready to see about slapping a Sonia Belmont 16 bit sprite over to Dracula X while also trying to figure out how to decompress Super Castlevania IV myself so I can edit the sprites in that for Super Castlevania Legends.  I know of the resources available and am using those.


Other stuff:

-VoH II is having some sprites redone and updated
-CoA MMC5 rebuild is having sprites refurbished and redone along with new ones added to make it more appealing and enjoyable
-Umbral Genesis is getting a new title along with a new entry screen
-Legends NES is being redone so it fits a better story layout to match closer to Aperture of Corruption (Legends NES II)
-Currently working with a voice actress that will voice a lot of my female characters both in game trailers and in game
-Trying to find someone that can help out with voice line, music and sound changes for Portrait of Ruin on the Nintendo DS
-Looking for resources to decompress the graphics in Castlevania Bloodlines (Genesis) so sprites can be changed to something new including new character sprite hack
-All of my Castlevania 1 projects are getting the MMC5 treatment
-A special Super Metroid project is being discussed with a few individuals
-Looking into changing Castlevania 3 into an entirely new and different game, more details later
-Looking to work back on Ikari Warriors MMC5 rework so it's enjoyable to play




For now, that's about everything.  Multitasking like how I use to as it keeps my mindset busy.


Toodles for now!   :thumbsup:

Full on conversion project that I am taking up on  :beer:

-------------------------------------
[Edit]

Name has been chosen for the Super Metroid 100% conversion!  Castlevania Chronicles: Scourge of the Dragon

-------------------------------------

Right now, active projects consist of:

-AoC (thread created by Toffi)
-Bloodlust Edition
-CoA
-Legends NES
-Umbral Genesis
-Super Metroid 100% Conversion Project



All others are placed on the back burner to stay warm so once I finish up main majority of things I will move on down the list!


Also going to make another attempt at trying to learn programming on the NES, SNES and Genesis.  I really need to try and learn this to become more self sufficient.  Will be an extremely long road as I'm balancing tons of stuff right now.




Final Note:  Thanks to those that have shared links to this thread, and AoC's thread, as we enjoy the publicity to get the word out!  Hope all of you take care and stay safe  :beer:

Looking forward to these project's progression overtime. ;)

And I hope you learn alot from the Nes,Snes & Genesis game engines so you can handle them on your own. :)

Keep up the great work Morinis! :thumbsup:

So an update on everything, nothing substantial.

Going with the Big 3.  Aperture of Corruption, Umbral Genesis and Scourge of the Dragon.  Others are on the back burner right now so I can finally get something finished and released after all of these years doing this wonderful hobby  :thumbsup:





Just a tiny update to Umbral Genesis's title.  I will be redoing sprites on certain stages so they look more presentable to what they are now.  I'm pushing myself into changing my art style so it's not as cartoonish than past renditions.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOutApG7C-c

MindFlower updated a song to MMC5, a prototype we are messing around with.  Nothing is final yet as this is based on the progress of AoC's MMC5 engine from CV3 mixed with some prototype modules ;D



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfQq5LAFbT0

Will warn  you about the video.  It's a long talk vid about what first steps, and planned pathways, I want to undertake.  Not sure on what could be done just  yet as I'm making room for tons of adjustments.


If it's too long and didn't listen to the video?

An entire update list, to what there is now, for the Super Metroid 100% conversion hack to a MetroidVania Castlevania called Castlevania Chronicles: Scourge of the Dragon.  I'll bring out a more detailed update in the future when I have progressed more onto the project as there are programs I am going to pick up and learn.  A few wonderful people have pitched in to help me learn things from the Metroid community, even some Castlevania community members have gave me new pointers, so I am taking down notes to what there is!  Going to see on what boundaries can be broken with this one  :beer:



For Aperture of Corruption chat.

Anything and everything AoC related can be found on the thread here lead by Toffi as he's the main organizer for our joint project together.  I'm working on character and some stage development on dedicated Saturday's for AoC and everything else on Sundays with SotD off and on throughout the week so I can get use to 16 bit. 




For now, I shall leave this thread be until more progress has been made.  Chat with you all later and stay safe!

Thanks David  :beer:



So, not much of an update but it's an update  :D







I now have a working Sonia Belmont 16 bit sprite again!  Was handed a sprite sheet a month ago which was incomplete so went to the source and ripped everything with edits into 16 bit.  I am now beginning to become more situated with my SNES and Genesis projects though the Super Castlevania Legends (SC4) will be a ways off as I want to have heavy edits done to the ASM to fit this sprite into it smoothly compared to Simon's odd garbled stuff.

I cannot remember the original artist's name as they will be credited for the original creation of the sprite  :thumbsup:



All in all, this is another thing that's chugging along slowly but steadily!



Stay frosty peeps and stay safe  :beer:

Just a tiny update before I ramp up my activities on a daily basis to bring out bigger updates!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS9ntas1pUM&t=19s

VoH II is back into the picture!  Sadly this is not the version I was working on and to what I passed off to someone else as this is version 0.3.  Going to redo a lot of things anyway so no big loss  :P





...and for the GameBoy fans


Christopher Belmont is slowly being worked on  :thumbsup:






As of right now, the current active projects are AoC, Legends NES, CoA, Bloodlust, VoH II and SotD with MetroidVania on the side here and there.  Umbral Genesis broke just like Retold II did (kind of) so need to get that fixed sometime this  year  8)


Here's Umbral Genesis to how it broke: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EYKZGbwi8s




Catch you all later and stay safe  :beer:

As always, thanks David  :thumbsup:


Tiny, but big update, for me.  I finally got Christopher Belmont's sprite set made for Castlevania III!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQqVOXnY1lU



Since Bane of Twilight got cancelled, I'm going to respectfully pick that name up.  I also remember helping come up with that name for an individual on a Discord server some time back about it.  Got the copy of the cancelled ROM, not sure why it was cancelled though.  Anyway, not going to let the title go to waste  :beer:


This won't be on the 'To-Do' list right now as I have other things going lol.  For now, I'm going to get back onto character development for AoC  :beer:





See  you all later and stay safe  :thumbsup:

Doing one final posting.


I am taking all of my projects into private as there will not be no more open updates so they can be finished.  Due to a trust issue after my projects were cancelled left and right it irritated me so I'm going to continue them on my own.  I handed off AoC 100% to the new project lead so that will be finished.  I am also no longer going to offer assistance to anyone else that asks me for help as you'll need to learn spriting on your own if you want your stuff done as I am no longer interested in offering free handouts.



Whenever my projects will be finished is when you'll see them uploaded onto  here via an IPS patch as they'll be low key releases.  Made this decision due to the fact that a promise was broken and want a hobby on the side so going to go private.



Do not trust any other sources about whatever goes on with me and my projects as all of that news will come from me and since I won't be updating anymore anywhere else including here then you'll have a perfect idea on how rumors are spread.  My YouTube will be of a different format so you will not find any updates on there but just gameplays.



Not sure on what else to say since this sounds blunt as it is so I'll leave it there.

Hi Morinis. Its been a bit. Just wanted to let you know that your projects are still being held in the ForgeMasters Library. Despite what you may have heard. Nothing was canceled, I was unable to explain before you left, the hope was to hold them in a library for future hackers to use. When I ran the numbers, the total project completion time was over 42 years of development. The truth was I was hoping to keep them saved (since you said things were getting to be too much) for the future, not cancel them. I believe you may have misunderstood my intentions. If you want me to take them off the AoC server I would be more than happy too, as it seems you want to continue ROM hacking despite what you told me. Morinis, Dragoon, DirtCat, I never even got to say goodbye. If your reading this, I want you to know I still see you as my ROM hacking hero. Everyone at team AoC misses you, and we hope you go on to do great things. Wherever life leads you.

Your friend in hacking,
Gabe
