Portrait of Bloodlines

Hack of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin


It’s no surprise to anyone that CastleVania Portrait of Ruin is a direct sequel of CastleVania Bloodlines of the mega-drive, but it fails to look like its predecessor, And this Hack aims to fix that, putting new Songs, Weapons, mechanics, graphics and more!

This hack has three patches. The first patch, is the original and contains changes to music, equipment, subweapons, and enemy palettes, in order to make CVPOR more like Bloodlines. it is not really mentioned as a sequel to Bloodlines, but all of the story says it should be. This original idea was made by Redpack (RP). The first patch contains content by Redapck. This is how CVPOBL was intended.

The second patch contains more enemy palette changes, new palettes for Jonathan and Char to match those od John Morris and Eric LeCarde, some changes to equipment values, a new model for a certain weapon, and a new weapon usable by Jonathan and Charlotte. All additions for this patch were recommended to RP by StarWyvern (SW).

The third patch contains everything that the second patch contains, say for a few MAJOR changes. BIG Equipment Boost. Richter is replaced by Sonia. Maria is replaced by Carrie Fernadez. (Credits to Serio, Drameloch, Iamme, for sprites and DF) Some of the enemy palettes are reverted. Alot of time time and effort went in to making this hack with the interest of all CV fans in mind. This hack would not be possible if not for the skill, expertise, and wisdom of the following people:

Gems Sprites by TheLV

Songs, Hacking, Hellhound, New Items, Fixes and Extra Patches by StarWyvern

New Enemies Palette by RedPack007 (Some by StarWyvern)

New Sub-Weapons Sprites, New Dracula Palette and Eric Event actor Palette by RedPack007
