About this run

I mind that the game is sharp and dramatic because I am inspired by TASers of CVHoD! You can use Maxim after you once clear Juste Belmont's mode.


It is started from SRAM of this run http://tasvideos.org/2019S.html

Manipulates Luck

I use sliding and jump to control Luck (for example critical hits)

Uses Lua

Other comments


Thank you for all TASer of CVHoD!

I enjoyed TASing!


I changed Branch name because the votes member said that "all bosses" was more suitable for this run.

Thank you for correcting my mistake!
