PostSubject: Castlevania Harmony of despair. Tips & Tricks! Backdash fast   Wed 04 Aug 2010, 20:11

Hi you all!
Please move this thread into the English section, if needed!

As you may have noticed, the backdash has been toned down here, with a slow recovery time!

To backdash as fast as in SOTN, you can cancel the backdash by tapping DOWN, or DIAGONAL DOWN.
Remember that you must release DOWN before making an another backdash.

My backdash running is now around 50% faster then the usual walking!
Try practice with the timelimit on screen!
I would recomend an arcade stick for the hardcore one.

The executional button combination reminds me of the "HA HA" backdash steps glitch, LEI had in TEKKEN TAG Wink

No I havent yet Sad
I will start practicing more again soon, since I feel more motivated again.
I only tried for 2 hours last time.
But I WILL succed.



Back to Harmony of despair.
Some swords has the same special move as sotn.
Like the down, downforward, forward + attack.
All standning attacks have recovery time!
You can cancel the recovery, using the weapons special attack.

Also of course the jump attack gets canceled while landing.
So you can make 3 fast slices in a row.

I used the jump trick on my movie "fast dracula kill" with the Muramasa. Maybe your finding will make it faster!

But Muramasa does not have any QCF+Attack (QCF= quarter circle forward).
So its more like a infinite non recovery minijumping attack.
I meant that its possible to cancel a standing attack with a special QCF+attack, with a capable sword.

But its often better to do many small jumps with fast recovery all the time.

Attack-to-QCF+attack are only good for enemies that dies after 2 hits. (Or 3 hits if we start with a jumping attack.

Here´s a maxed out override glitch, if you have a JTAG hacked console.
By changing the the values with the hex editor, you can reach level 15, although only level 9 is the max you can get with the spells.

Backing up the save first is recomended though.

Hi guys! Love this game! I play as Alucard mostly (as most of you also do, probably), but Shanoa is pretty good too!

I haven't played that many hours, so maybe you guys can answer some questions for me?

The best sword I can find for Alucard is the Hrunting - is that the best in the game?

And I can't find any extra weapons for Shanoa, she can get better weapons right?

Lastly, I heard that there will be a new level (PoR style pyramid) and a new character (Maria) available for download soon... Anybody heard when these will be available???

Hi outofthegamer Wink

The current best weapons with Alucard for damage,speed, & beating dracula are 2x Yasatsuna sword.
It drops on level 5-6 hard mode from the purple, and gold chests.

You should have 1 in each hand to do double the damage.
Then try to get winged shoes (for a "saturn like" running speed) from draculas gold chest on hard.
He also drops Valmanway on hard (crissaegrim), wich is the best sword for Soma.
(You need 2 for Soma, then you shall start farming the rare Dracula souldrops with Soma.. Or modify the save.)




Ive just tried out some saveglitching to get every item, after getting tired of the rare dracula hardmode drops, after 3 days of farming.

You CAN have MANY saves on the same account, but only 1 per device.
For example: load the maxed out glitched save from USB, so you don´t screw up your personal save.

Download the hexedited maxed out save from here: http://insomniacgamerz.net/forums/showthread.php?p=49121

I used Super resigner 1.5 , and USBXTAFGUI_v31(to extract my save from the 360 fatx formatted usb memmory stick, and to insert back the modified one, resigned with your GAMERTAG). But I dont know if non Jtagged consoles can do this.

I´d got the Muramasa, and Death´s scyphe this way.
But Muramasa does not seems to save the metamorphesis based level up, after the level has ended...

A more interesting thought is that the not yet releasedated DLC´s, maybe may be available throught Hex editing the gamefiles.
But I think JTAG is a must to do this. (I use a JTAGGED Elite)
If anyone knows how to patch the gamefiles to play the DLC´s. please tell!

DLC has leaked from Partner net, and is available at blackcat-games.
Im playing the new pyramid stage, on my Jtagged Elite now.

LOL, a female boss that makes you fall in love and freeze, if youre playing a male Razz .
I bet she´s from Nindendo DS.

The hacked savefile does not max out the 2 new DLC characters..
But they are not as hard to max as Soma, Alucard and Charlotte Wink

A new updated hacked modified savefile would still be nice though.

hmm.. all the good items seem to be in hard mode only. And I am sadly having trouble with Death on normal mode! need moar practice!

Also, heard about a juicy glitch - maybe you can confirm?

Equip nothing but Shogun helmet on Jonathan and your intelligence will drop to -1 (same as 255!!) so your sub-weapons will do crazy high damage. I have been playing as Jonathan to try to find the Shogun Helmut -- but it's probably only in hard mode.
