I recently stumbled upon quite a neat English translation patch for the PC Engine CD version of Dracula-X, that even replaces the voiced dialogue with the official Konami English dub from Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (PSP). For those who haven't seen it before, the patch can be downloaded from here: Castlevania: Rondo of Blood Translation
Somewhat excited I've been playing this game, only to find out that it hangs in Level 2 in MESS
Searching the forums I found a post from 2010 by Kale, which mentions the exact same "hangs here" for Level 2. His post is illustrated with the pictures here: Akumajou Dracula X - Chi no Rondo
. Since Kale's post has been from two and a half years ago, I thought I'd raise the issue again, in the hope that one of the devs could take a look at it.
Seeing that this is such a high profile game and now with the neat English translation and all, it would be really great if it could be fixed. (We really need a "fingers crossed" smiley
