EvilJagaGenius, Solid One:

I made a new patch that should work with both translations. Let me know how it goes.

I'm at the Zombie Dragons right now and it seems to be working fine.  Many thanks!

Just tested with the portuguese translation. Looks like it's working. Here's the tests I've made:

- Applied firstly the translation patch and then the card mode hack patch. The game didn't crashed, but all text changes from the translation were reverted.
- Applied firstly the card mode hack patch and then the translation patch. No crashes and the text changes are showing just fine.

I've made a quick playthrough in the Catacombs area, got the Mercury Card in a room with fleamen, and made it until the first boss. I got no issues with the translation itself, and I guess the changes made by Card Mode patch are working fine.

Anyway, thanks for the new updated patch. I'll give it a playthrough when I have some spare time.

Is the Brilliant Plate re-inserted in your hack now?

 That's odd. It works fine with the Hugh Baldwin Hack. And CVModding has a Circle of the Shadow Hack that also works with it. I ran into ips problems before. Try patching them in a different order. Use LunarIPS, if that doesn't work, try FloatingIPS. I had to try quite a few times to combine patches of alot of games, in different orders, until I got the desired result.  :-[
Insert "Witty Text" here.

It is now. ;)

Where and how can I find it in the current version of the hack? I explored 100% of the map and find no result.

Is here anybody who obtained the Brilliant Mail in the latest version of Card Hack?

Thanks, never predict that item drop was changed. I checked the stronger variant in Battle Arena whose item drop is identical to original and I naturally thought the regular variant was the same thing.

Just beat the Card Mode hack together with the PT-BR translation, and basically, everything in the translation worked fine with the hack. Good job, Dev Anj!

BTW, I managed to get all cards except for Uranus, which prevented me to use the Thunder Summon against harder bosses, thus making me have a hard time beating Dracula's final form. Hopefully, I had dozens of Spiced Meats dropped by all enemies that drop them instead of their cards, which I used lots of them to heal myself.

I know you don't want to spoil us about the card locations, but can you at least tell me on which castle location it's located? Hope it's not in the Arena lol

Uranus is located at the very end of Battle Arena in this hack.

Hi Dev Anj,

This is great and thanks for this amazing mod!
CotM is actually my favorite Castlevania Metroidvania so this is a great addition.

Question: Is it possible to add this new mode as one of the passwords at the name entry?
That way we can enjoy all the modes for this great game in one package!  :)

Thanks!

Which translation are you using? And how exactly did you merge mod and translation? Fundador Discord.

Thanks for the compliments! It is possible to make it a new mode, however separating my changes from vanilla and applying them with a specific code active would take even more effort, and besides, this is supposed to be a hack of the vanilla game, so I figured people want to be able to experience the changes without having to complete the vanilla game again.

Just a little heads up: the patch version on the project page is outdated compared to the latest one in this thread, and I believe not many people would want to dig through the thread to find it.

Just the opposite actually. The project page contains V3 patch.

Red Soul

Is that so? but when I tried downloading it, it didn't seem like it was the v3 version at all.

The version number listed on the project page is 2.0, and the downloaded zip is CardUp_v2.zip. But if you extract the zip file, you get CardUp_v3.ips. I think that's where the confusion is coming from.
