Castlevania: Rondo of Blood English Translation Patch

Hello and welcome to the Castlevania: Rondo of Blood English Translation Patch (PSP to TurboGrafx-CD).
After many years of leaving this project abandoned I can happily say that this patch has reached it's much needed 100% status! However the credits have not made it into this release of the patch (if ever) so in order to compensate for this inconvenience we have included the translation for the credits in the readme.

To make clear, this patch will translate the TurboGrafx-CD version of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood into English. Everything will be translated; even the voiced dialogue will be replaced with the official Konami English dub from Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (PSP). However miscellaneous grunts will retain their original Japanese.

It also replaces the old German narrator with the new narration that was in the PSP and VC release of the game. If you, for whatever reason, do not like this you can easily swap back the original narration (Track03) after it is done patching.       


But enough talk! Have at you!

Michael G. (Burnt Lasagna)
Started this project back up in early 2011 and directed the project from 2011 onward. Also worked on engineering the PSP dub into the voiced cutscenes in the TurboGrafx-CD version along with hacking in new English title cards for the stage names. As well as make some minor changes to the Patcher, such as the OGG conversion.   

Andrew (cubanraul)
Was the Director of the project back in 2004 - 2006 and worked on all text/audio hacking that was done during that point. Also worked on making the new Patcher.

Andy (pemdawg)
Worked on some early translation and text hacking in 2004 – 2005; currently at the time of writing he’s trying to translate the games packaging.       

Tom (tomaitheous)
Worked on hacking in the new title screen, hacked in the new English “Castlevania: Oops, Wrong Game!!!” title screen, added a new print routine for the opening subtitle system, hacked in the text in signs and added  a new text routine for the ferry man. It's very important to note that this finished version of the patch would not have been possible without Tom. He was the saving grace when all of our team members hit the wall, so please everyone give a big round of applause to Tom!

Adding PCE console specific layer on top of that, makes for an interesting challenge (no, not a reference to Ys II).

Short version:  Use good CDRs (I use Taiyo Yuden) burned at the slowest setting. Use the PC Engine TOC fixer program to fix your ISOs. Burn at the slowest possible speed!

I made a copy, and I can confirm that it works both in Magic Engine and real hardware, tested on a TG16/CD unit. This is great!

By the way, I think your brother did a rather good job with Death's voice. It's certainly no worse than Richter's voice actor. Thanks a million!

This is certainly an unexpected but welcomed surprise!

Thanks a bunch!  Can't wait to play this game in English... I haven't played the PSP version yet!

Very nice job!  Thanks for sharing.  I just finished burning it to CDr with ImgBurn, and it works flawlessly in my Turbo Duo.  Awesome job to all involved!!

Patched and tried it out on the emulator real quick. Nice work. Gonna have to burn this to CDR and give it a full run through on the real system sometime :)

Great to see so much positive feedback for this patch!

I was wandering if anyone here has gotten the chance to thoroughly test the patch on the real hardware, because I have never personally tested it before (don't own a real TurboGrafx-CD). I have no I idea why it wouldn’t work, just curious is all.

Also, has anyone beaten the game with this patch, if so were there any problems?
