Great but I get glitches

Reviewed By: Lantern jaw on 01 Dec 2022

The hack gets my full support. The mist on the first stage is amazing and the screams from the arcade are a welcome addition* amongst other things.

However, currently (playing on Gens, Retroarch, Playstation Classic) there are blocky green hitbox-type shapes around characters when magic is used. I can’t wait for the next update to see if this goes away.

*about the sounds: the extra screams and voices occur too soon and seem to replace the sounds which we expect, rather than adding to them. This makes the hacks and slashes oddly silent on the final blows.

Still recommended of course.
