Castlevania: Improved Controls

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

This hack for Castlevania modernizes the control scheme to make it more like Symphony of the Night and Mega Man, allowing the player more control while in the air.

Complete list of changes:

  • Enables the player to control their x-velocity in mid-air while jumping (including while jump-attacking).
  • (optional) When releasing the jump button, one immediately starts falling again; this allows the player to make smaller hops if desired.
  • After being knocked back, the player regains control after a split second and can angle their fall.
  • When walking off an edge, the player retains control instead of dropping straight down.
  • The player can jump off of stairs at any point in the climb.
  • (optional) The player can land on stairs.
  • (Optional) A bit of inertia while moving in the air.

Similar to the Akumajou Densetsu (Castlevania 3) hack here and Castlevania 2 hack found here.

Use Lunar IPS to apply the hack to your Castlevania 3 ROM file.

Version 1.1 changes:

  • Now compatible with Ultimate Castlevania and The Holy Relics. [i]Please ensure that you use the correct patch from the zip (other-hacks and the-holy-relics respectively) if you combine this hack with other hacks.[i]

Version 3.0 changes:

  • Now compatible with many other romhacks as well (see the folder for compatibility with other hacks)
  • Stair landing
  • Optional inertia for “weightier” jumps.
  • Individual changes can be selected.

Version 3.1 changes:

  • Changed folder layout of zip file to be less confusing. Previously, many would-be-players were incorrectly applying the patch for the vanilla version of the game onto hacked versions of the game.

Stair Glitching for Ultimate

Reviewed By: OrangeCrush666 on 15 Jun 2020

I was playing the “Ultimate Castlevania” with the patches and the movement is great. The issue unfortunately is the stair glitch. I tried various patches and used the recommended “control-catch-vcancel-inertia”. When enabling inertia in any of the 3 folders, they ignore stairs entirely and go up random walls that lead you to a glitch map. If you select any of the options that don’t have inertia they go up the stairs but keep on going up till you again reach a glitched map. I’m not sure if it is only for “Ultimate Castlevania” as of yet but I recommend a pass for this patch until fixed.

Version 3.0 Recommended - No
