Castlevania II SRAM hack

Hack of Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest

Description:

This hack replaces the password options with simple Save and Load options. What it saves is the same information contained in a password.

Save at Game Over: Choosing SAVE will write the game progress to SRAM. It will return to the Game Over screen until you choose CONTINUE.

Load at menu screen: Choose LOAD and it will start the game with the progress you saved.

Technical info: The 16 bytes that describes the password is saved and loaded to/from SRAM at $6000-$600F.

There are two ips files, “cv2SRAM.ips” for NTSC roms and “cv2eSRAM.ips” for PAL.

This might just be the greatest patch for Simon’s Quest. I mean, you could save in the FDS version of Castlevania (Akumajou Dracula) AND Castlevania 2 (Dracula 2), so I think it’s about time we could save too. And yes, the passwords are really long, so this patch is totally worth it.

Now if only we could get saving support in other games (I’m looking at you, Metroid).
