Day 16 : Castlevania: Rondo of Blood on PcEngine CD (1993)

by on Apr.25, 2010, under lutris

I guess we’re hitting the point where the games don’t get this “old stuff” feeling anymore. You get games with about the same quality as in 1993 today on Nintendo DS, ,PSP, Playstation Network, etc… A lot of games made last year are not as good looking as the one we’re going to talk about today: Castlevania: Rondo of Blood also known as Dracula X.
First, let me tell you : the music kicks ass, I want to play some more just to be able to listen to this catchy tune. The game is really good too, it’s Castlevania so don’t expect anything easy. Even the first level is hard, that’s what you get when you play Castlevania.
I didn’t add anything to Lutris this time, I used the excellent mednafen emulator and added a CD Bios and that was it. I didn’t add a CD bios option in lutris because the -pce.cdbios command line option wouldn’t override the mednafen.cfg setting which was PATH NOT SET. Strange, but I’ll have a look at this issue later.

Besides setting up the CD Bios there is nothing special to do, just give the .cue file as the Rom and you’re good to go.

Take that you stupid golem !

    I used mednafen for this game, not E-UAE which is an Amiga emulator.
    I don’t know if mednafen supports clone cd images, the one i used was bin/cue format. If it doesn’t work you can always convert the cd image to the correct format with the appropriate tool.

    For the moment Lutris runs only on Linux so I’m afraid I won’t be able to give you more information.
    You should find someone to help you install Ubuntu on your Mac and try out Lutris ;)
