How to play - To increase your attack equip weapons in your right(first) hand only - Equip food items will lead you to deal 0 dmg (No hits) to enemies - Richter starts without bladedash, uppercut and slidekick so you need to get them - In order to increase your stats by level just open the menu and close it - When you exit the shop select "exit" in the shop menu, otherwise might get softlocked -Skipping the cutscene after saving richter will help you not crash (The little inverted castle animation cutscene) - to do uppercut high you must have uppercut+ rising strike 6. What to do Get Holy glasses on the normal castle in order to unlock the inverted castle, then collect all (5) vlad relics in order to fight dracula's third form 7. What to not do - Do not active bat card, ghost card, demon card, etc - Do not equip axe lord armor by any means and if you do make sure you don't save your game or its gonna crash - don't unquip (empty hand) then save then reload the save then open the menu then close it - don't equip anything in left hand (unless you want glitchy looking whip) - don't jump/blade dash at the middle of the clook room with both silver and gold ring equipped, otherwise the game is gonna crash. You're supposed to calmly walk to the side and the cutscene is going to trigger correctly 8. Whip fixed whip is finally fixed enjoy 9. What do you expect from the final version of RotN (v2.0)? (Feel free to leave more suggestions at my discord server) - colors sprite whip added - cape color change depends on which cape you wearing - new bouns playable characters - richter texture in cutsenses instead of alucard - dialogue change text 10.Credits Mazenk : the developer who did all this Kris Naga: testing, decision making, design Mott : helped alot with alot of codes in the rom hack Mauk696 : helped alot with coding bosses & enemeies paul_met: giving permission to include quality hack to rotn Sonic dreamcaster : helped with decomp project Xeeynamo : helped with decomp project
