    MottZilla is credited in the description, so I figure it made sense to add them to the actual list of credits. (I also gave some info on what Ar8temis008 did, even if it's obvious.)
  • Hacks
    Updated description to match README and providing better screenshots. No code changes.

    Added author. Removed ALXR and Ti, they are NOT directly involved in this hack, so they should not be credited; they are Special Thanks, which are not also creditable.

Castlevania - Localization Fix

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

This patch simply alters the graphics in the end credit sequence to read ‘Simon Belmont’, his official English name, instead of ‘Simon Belmondo’, his official Japanese name.

The download includes patches for all four regional releases of the game on the NES:

  • Japanese NTSC ‘Akumajou Dracula’ (CRC32: 93F0488C)
  • Original American NTSC or PRG0 (CRC32: 39C879BB)
  • Revised American NTSC or PRG1 (CRC32: 856114C8
  • European PAL (CRC32: 9A3CF4D6)

Also included is a special variant of the patch that also updates several of the enemy names in the end credits to their current and slightly more accurate English translations:

  • Frankenstein - Franken (since at least CV3)
  • Hunch Back - Flea Man
  • Armor - Armor Knight

… if that sort of thing really interests you, of course.
