Indeed, I intend to use the hack is to enhance the experience with the game, making it seem more like the classic series.

Man, after I beat the whole game I come here and see that patch lol. Well I guess it's good to have fully experienced it once the way it was originally intended, but thanks, the sluggishness was killing me!

Also was thinking of adding achievements for finding each secret room but I now realize that you'll need to find them all for the max lives achievements anyway, so I suppose this list is fully complete then.

I went ahead and took the liberty of changing the 7 rests achievements to 9 rests. You can easily get this many if you look for maps or guides to reach the secret rooms (1 in each stage) and/or get the other optional 1-ups + score ones.

True Belmond Work! try another rom.

Wow, I didn't notice there was an improvement patch. Might be easier now to get the rest. Thought it was strange Belmont walked slower than zombies.

I'm gonna try the non speed hack for True Belmont as well

It does work w/o speed hack

It might not be what it says it is. There's a more technical way to find out for sure but here's an easier way. I don't know as of yet to easily get an MD5 hash but with 7zip it's really easy to get CRC32, which most emulators read when loading a ROM
13 Apr 2016

You right click on the rom, assuming you have 7zip. Then go to CRC->CRC32. For the ROM that worked for me it says "CRC32: 216E6AA1".

It could be a sync issue as well, that happens to me all the time

Hard to believe people have actually bothered to make an achievement set for this game seeing as it was a poorly rated game in the past.

There are other poorly rated games with cheevs, like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

The patch really did make this game significantly more fun. I beat it without the patch for good measure, just to vindicate my childhood self. Still not very fun.

Added 1 Credit & 1 Life leaderboards. The leaderboards won't initiate if you hold right/left on the d-pad as Stage 1 starts because the start parameter depends on Christopher's X coordinate among many other factors.

For 1 Credit, you can continue playing loop after loop if you're still on your 1st credit. For 1 Life, you can continue playing loop after loop if you're still on your 1st life.

"Defeat Dracula without whip upgrade!"this sounds like the opposite of fun, granted he's not hard but alongside not being an enjoyable battle the first phase music is grating as hell, what a dumb ass challenge

i've been holding this in for a while but i could come up with better cheevos on nearly every entry i've come across, then again i'm not sure how hard they are to program in so i'll shut my big mouth
