tricks and glitches


Loop movement of back dash cancellation is performed in the state where the beginning has nothing.

  • forward -> backdash,forward+crouch,...
7168 -> (13784+11384) / 2 = 12584

This is used in the place which acquired high speed.

  • One-step high speed
  • Two-step high speed

Movement which combined high speed and a a dive kick in the place which acquired a Stone of flight is performed.

  • forward+jump,forward,forward+jump,forward -> kick,blank,jump,blank,jump,blank,...
16834*4 -> (28672+28672+26272+23872+21472+19072) / 6 = 24672

Movement which used this together in the place which acquired the Griffon Wing is performed

  • forward+Griffon,forward+jump,forword -> kick,blank,blank,Griffon,jump,blank,....
16834*3 -> (28672+28672+28672+26272+23872+21472)/6 = 26272

When it is earlier not to use high speed, back dash movement which used the high jump together is performed.

  • backdash+griffon+kick
(13784+13232+12680+12128+11576)/5 = 12680
  • with moonwalkers
(15576+15024+14472+13920+13368)/5 = 14472

Multiple hits glitches

  • If four type of Invincibility time are piled up,Since the information after the fourth kind cannot be written in a memory, it happens.

In for example, the case of Dracula

  • Dracula Invincibility address 1:02101005
  • Dracula Invincibility address 2:02101006
  • Dracula Invincibility address 3:02101007

It will become the following value, if an attack (Encyclopedia) is usually put in Charotte(Partner attack) with high speed and an axe is put in Jonathan by the minimum loss.

  • Dracula Invincibility address 1:02101005;30
  • Dracula Invincibility address 2:02101006;27
  • Dracula Invincibility address 3:02101007;16

If Jonathan's attack is put in this state, only the time with which the memory address is buried will carry out a multiple hits. In this case, In this case, it hits 16 times.However, the axe can put an ax in operating an orbit well twice. In this case, since it can lengthen to 32 during the Invincibility time of an axe, only 27 of high speed can be made to hit.
