I believe I have located a rom set for the Jap import of SOTN called Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight. The file is over 300 mb in size. Being a die hard Castlevania fan, I have been working diligently to get the PCEngine Dracula X to work on my pc (slow painful progress). So much time and effort wasted on a game that doesn't work is frustrating. Not to mention unnessary stress put on my expensive pc. :(

I do not want to go thru the same frustration I have gone thru with the PCEngine fiasco. Has anyone attempted to download and play the afforementioned Dracula X: NITM on their PS emulator?

If so,

1) How does it run?

2) Which emulator is best?

3) Virtual drive or burn a CD?

:) Any feedback (advice, questions, warstories) regarding this topic is appreciated.

:rolleyes:
I got Magic Engine to work for me last night. PCEngine Dracula X sounds and plays greats! I actually used to think Dracula X for SNES was a decent game. What a garbage port!

More interesting to me is the Dracula X PS1 torrent I found recently. It's US import,SOTN, is a work of legendary statis. Would like to get some feedback on how well it works before I commit resources and time to download. Any volunteers?

Playstation emulation is almost perfect nowdays. As long as you have a fast PC you wont have any problems.

I say go for it.

After successfully downloading GBA torrents (approx. 9 MB) in less than 10 minutes, I tried the Dracula X torrent and the program (Bittorrent?) shot back a download time of 79 HOURS AT A RATE OF 1 KB !!!

How long did you wait for your download of Dracula X?

When it comes to BitTorrent all depends on how many people leech and seed the file. If there are enough people you will have a good speed.
