SCANLINE SCREENSHOT THREAD. BECAUSE 240p IS ALL THE P'S I NEED. (56k warning)

First post on the boards. Figured I’d start my right of passage with one of my favorite series. Looking forward to posting more scanlines!

Castlevania - RGB modded NES with RetroAccess Nintendo AV Multiout SCART cable to my Sony 20L5 PVM.

great shots, welcome! I’m at the same spot of the game, but I can’t for the life of me beat Dracula. his second form just destroys me

Welcome! Also, nice timing on that picture, with that whip to the face :grin:

Thanks for the welcome. It took me more continues than I’d like to admit. Dracula’s second form is far more punishing if you don’t have the timing down between whips and holy water. You won’t be able to stunlock him completely unless you have the subweapon upgrades. He’ll jump at you eventually, so it’s ideal to have him transform at one corner of the screen to give you the most screen estate. Here’s the video guide I used to help me through the game: How To Beat CastleVania (NES) - mechanics and walkthrough - YouTube

Best of luck in beating Dracula!

Thank you! I managed to grab it completely by mistake when pausing it to view the video guide I just referenced. Figured I’d never be lucky enough to get such a good frame again so I snapped a photo for prosperity’s sake. I’m hopeful to get more frames like that in future posts.

Thank you! I also own a 14L5, although I’ve played more on my 20L5. The 14L5 currently host all my Sega consoles. If I can get around to it this weekend I’ll give it some much needed love. Got Mega Drive and Saturn games coming my way so I’ll be photographing those first.

I was playing Hyper SF2 the other day on PS2 and was thinking how cool the arranged OST sounded, didn’t realise the soundtrack was mostly from the 3DO game!
