Title: SOTN (Saturn Version) Sprites
Post by: Lelygax on August 12, 2013, 03:59:57 PM
Someone have sprites from the exclusive enemies from the SOTN Saturn version? Like a sheet from this for example:


If no one have it, someone knows how I can rip them?

ANY sprite-sheet exclusive from the Saturn version is welcome (less Richter  :-*), including maps, tiles, enemies and items, of possible I want Maria too, since she have some nice effects.

inb4, I know that someone can say "check Spriters Resource" and I already did it, they only have the maps (Inverted Garden is missing), horses from the Richter/Maria intro and one enemy from the Cursed Prison called Specter. Check for yourself: (

I remember when I used to listen to Radio Castlevania Spain.
I am still friends with Brenda and Norma and the rest of the crew from "El Legado Del Vampiro".  At least on Facebook.

That Richter is really cool-looking.

Hey thanks Jop, that was unexpected since I rarely see you, but you ever seems to help me. You are like Blues/Protoman xD

edit: It seems that this guy ripped some BGs from another games too, pretty handy. A shame that he doesnt log in this forum since June, otherwise I would try to contact him now and try to discover how he ripped some Saturn sprites...

Also he already had ripped PoR whips, so I've only wasted my time (not a real waste, since now my "sprite-ripping mode" is ON).

Jorge, you know about more places with rare material like that?

Haha you sound like me when I was trying to rip sprites and graphics for Dragon Force (SAT) and then I found a website that had them all listed. I had started organizing them to upload to Spriters Resource, but got distracted (i.e., bored).

Yes xD
But I still need to rip all Maria exclusive subs (some of them have different effects) and them her beam shots and spells (her owl seems to be a recolored normal owl, I need to check that to be certain, if so I'll not even rip that, since I can simply recolor it myself with the correct pallete and so waste less time). Then I'll check what enemies are missing from this collection (will o wisp for example) and try to rip them.

Im lucky that these enemies doesnt use exclusive sounds, otherwise I would need to find a way to get them too.

Im more or less trying to get everything exclusive to this version (musics can be found on OSTs luckily) and then never need to return again to rip something from the Saturn version :P

Also, how did you ripped these sprites from a Saturn game?

Hey, if you remember something, get in touch with him or knows how I can contact him if he still active, please let me know.

IF IDK any of these its okay, thanks anyway dude :)

edit: I've made progress. Using this special Yabause (

They created it for tool assisted things, but now I can "frame advance", so I will never miss a frame again AND it have a built-in "tileviewer" (you see things in their respective form, but if they are marionette monsters like Olrox 2nd form they will show in separate parts) so now I have the best of the 2 worlds to work with. :)

Also I've found GGD here ( with some other tools to rip things more easily, even withou a frame-by frame option.

edit2: finished ripping Maria's Bibuti (hand subweapon) explosion effect (yeah, this explodes after disappearing)

edit3: I've ripped this blue will' o wisp thing from Cursed Prison and all Maria effects, less these exclusive to the boss version (working on that).

edit4: finished ripping Maria's shield orbs, they've more frames than I thought. This finish Maria special effects rips for good.
