Good list, RT-55J.  I edited the list only a tiny bit, just adding Castlevania: Bloodlines on the Genesis.  (My brother was telling me about someone on GameFAQs who though for so many years that the title was "Castlevania: Bloodiness", heh...)  Initially I removed the Game Boy Color games as I was sure that was an error but Wikipedia lists them.  I was not aware that there were colorized remakes.  Anyway, they're back on the list.



I'll have to remember to rename "The Castlevania Adventure" to "Castlevania: The Adventure", not to mention fixing all those "CamelCaps".  (Force of habit...the early games clearly show stylization of the V that could be assumed to be capitalized.)  Also, I thought I had to fix "Chi no Rondo"'s English name to "Dracula X: Rondo Of Blood", but apparently thanks to the PSP remake, my initial "error" of calling it "Castlevania: Rondo Of Blood" turned out to be correct anyway.  :p



I notice you didn't list the 3D games.  Peardian is mapping Paper Mario (N64) so they wouldn't be impossible to map, per se.  I'm pretty sure someone started a topic just looking at the 3D data for Castlevania (N64)...  Not that we should expect maps of 3D games soon, I'm just saying.  But you could always edit them in when they come, if they come.

Nice list.  I guess I can now collect royalties from RT-55J for the use of my Ultimate Map List System (TM).  :P



I had always wondered which series would be the next one to get a list like my Mega Man list.  Oddly enough, I at one point was compiling a Castlevania map list, but I am just not enough of a Castlevania fan to be able to be able to compile such a list with any measure of accuracy.

Here's a few more Castlevania titles to add to the list of Castlevania mapping projects.



Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles (Sony PSP)

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (Playstation 2)

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (Playstation 2)

Castlevania: Judgment (Nintendo Wii)



Hope they can be posted to the list.


Title: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: RT 55J on July 09, 2009, 08:11:41 PM
I can't believe I forgot Bloodlines, especially considering the fact that it's one of the only one's I've actually played. >_<



Also, the colorized remakes of the first two GB games were only released in Europe IIRC, so I'm not surprised you didn't know about them.



I was considering adding the 3-D games, but it was late and I had to leave in the morning. I'll add them to the list now.

I have gotten around to mapping Castlevania Adventure (Game Boy Color) and finished and am already moving on to the second game. Wikipedia indeed indicate the existence of those games, but what they do not mention is that those games are combined with other Konami games in roms called "Konami GB Collection". The Castlevania GBC games come in the first and fourth Konami GB Collection volumes.

I got around to renaming "The Castlevania Adventure" to "Castlevania: The Adventure".  Update your bookmarks if necessary.



Next step is to fix all those "CamelCaps"...  i.e. the unnecessarily capitalized V.  Not a total pain, but it'll take some time to be sure to catch every occurrence...


Title: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: JonLeung on July 11, 2009, 04:02:57 PM
Okay, it didn't take too long (yay, Search & Replace).  I'm pretty sure I got them all.  In the next few minutes the Castlevania maps might not link properly during the re-uploading of the HTML files.



I'll have to go into various posts (like the NES Game Atlas and its spin-offs) to fix the links, but I imagine there could be some other links within the forums, as well as links to our Castlevania maps from other sites, that may be broken for a while, though...



EDIT: Apparently the outside links might not be a concern, at least in Internet Explorer, it doesn't matter if a bookmark uses capital or lower case letters...


Title: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: JonLeung on July 11, 2009, 04:38:42 PM
I should be done.  :)



Now for the forums...


Title: Castlevania Maps
Post by: JonLeung on July 11, 2009, 05:21:41 PM
This is the last you'll hear about my miscapitalized "V", I think, but I just wanted to point out I flushed it from the forums almost totally - and they weren't all my posts, but mostly - except for in one single post.



If someone's really bored, there's a scavenger hunt for you...find the one post in these forums with a capital "V" in "Castlevania".



(Of course it'd have to have a time/date earlier than this post, you can't just make one now.  :p)

Can someone map Haunted Castle, the Castlevania Arcade game?  



Actually is this post being made as a request for people to map the remaining Castlevania games?  No maps have been made for any of the Castlevania games for DS, PS2, PSP, N64 and also Castlevania Chronicles for Playstation.

This is basically a checklist for the 2D Castlevania games. The 3D ones aren't really doable, at least not in the sense the others are.



I know I shouldn't think about it before I finish with SotN, but I have considered working on some of the DS ones. No$GBA emulates them very well, but I don't think you can disable layers with the free version. Last time I tried, Desmume had some minor graphics glitches, but it seemed promising otherwise. In short, they should be mappable eventually, but there will have to be some creative solutions to the rooms with 3D backgrounds.


Title: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: alucard on July 19, 2009, 01:55:38 PM
I would love to see all the Castlevania games for the DS mapped, along with Haunted Castle, the Castlevania arcade game from the 80's, and Castlevania Chronicles if possible.  I am sure all Castlevania fans would love to see these maps.


Title: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: TerraEsperZ on July 20, 2009, 10:34:58 AM
no$GBA debug version would have allowed to disable the graphic layers as well as explore the maps, sprites and 3D models in memory, but the author has been missing in action for some time, making the acquisition of that version next to impossible.

The Game Boy Color version of Castlevania: The Adventure is now up, though I put it under Konami GB Collection: Vol. 1 because as far as I know it was never released as a standalone cartridge.



Also, I fixed the copyright date on the original Castlevania: The Adventure.  (And on a related note renamed Contra (GB) to Operation C when I noticed it was wrong while sorting out the Konami GB Collection links.)



I'm only human, so I can make mistakes.  And I don't mind you guys correcting me, in fact, in most cases I would want you to.

Since my lengthy post was eaten by the time warp, let me just say it again. I know how to rip Nintendo 64 maps, but I can't do it here on campus because my laptop is a piece of junk. The two Castlevania 64 games are just the right kind to be able to be mapped with the method I use to map Paper Mario. I am willing to teach someone how to do it themselves, as well as offering to render the rooms myself if it proves itself to be necessary.



If anyone feels they are up to the challenge, contact me. If you waited on me to do map this game myself, it would be several years before I got to it.

I might be interested in doing it, I am guessing that I have to play the entire games on my computer in order to map them?

It looks amazing, they did a great job on this map

Of course. The method I use is the N64 equivalent of a screenshot map. You'll have to visit every corner and passage in the game.


Excellent job on the new map, Revned. :D

I wouldnt be able to do this.  I dont like either of the Castlevania 64 games enough to play through them.  I guess we will have to wait for you


Title: Re: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: TerraEsperZ on September 19, 2009, 02:38:11 PM
I'd actually be interested in doing this both because I liked both N64 games despite their numerous faults, and because it seems like an interesting technical challenge. I'd just like to finish some of my other projects first.

No Castlevania map on this site past or future can compare to Revned's SoTN full-castle map masterpiece.

I would love to see more Castlevania maps from him, including the rest of 'Akumajou Dracula Special: Boku Dracula-kun (J)' for the Famicom.


Title: Re: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: Revned on October 19, 2009, 03:29:14 PM
Thanks! The Kid Dracula levels after the first one aren't very Castlevania-y. It plays more like a Mega Man game, actually. I may do them in the future if I run out of ideas, but I don't have any plans for them yet.


Title: Re: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: JonLeung on October 20, 2009, 10:16:57 AM
A (sort-of) Castlevania game that plays like a Mega Man game?  Seeing as how you mapped all the NES Mega Man games, that totally sounds like a game that'd be right up your alley, Revned!  :P


Title: Re: RE: Castlevania Maps

Will anyone ever be able to map Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclecia?


Title: Re: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: Will on October 31, 2009, 02:52:13 PM
Today a few Game Boy Kid Dracula maps have arrived. The game is a lot more complicated than I thought it would be, that it's too troublesome for me to continue. You will also notice that stage 3 isn't quite finished but its as far as I could go.


Title: Re: RE: Castlevania Maps
Post by: Will on August 15, 2016, 07:24:24 AM
There is a Japanese game released on DOS and PC-98 called "Rusty". It's not a Castlevania game, but it has a close likeness to one.
