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

Looks good

Reviewed By: CatnipPhilosophy on 24 Aug 2017

I’ve tried this together with the SOTN hard type hack and I don’t know if that is the cause but Richter’s down, up, jump. special move doesn’t work, and Alucard’s dark metamorphosis doesn’t work either.

Otherwise the game looks good with the new screenspace.
