    So is this game playing well enough on this emulator? I'm wanting to try it but not sure if I should waste my time so I thought I would ask if anyone here has tried it with the latest WiiSX.

    From the wiki:

    So is it working 100& fine? Or is everything 100% fine except for the sound? And if it is working 100%, what version should I grab? On the wiki there's a section for the official version and then there's a section for the unofficial.

    Thanks for any help. Never played this game and I'm pretty anxious to.

    I played it all the way through a while back, before the Beta2, though I played it off of a SD Card. The game ran at full speed with no problems, until it came to saving. The saving process easily took 35 seconds or more, and at times I thought it had crashed. (It never did though.) Never experienced any graphical glitches, either.

    depends what you plan to play the game off. i cant speak for sd but from a usb hdd if you use the original release you will experience some problems, if you use the unoffical build which has usb2 speeds the game seems to run fine

    Ok, thank you for the info guys. I'm going to be playing it off of USB(an 8gb thumb drive). But what unofficial build should I use? The first one that is listed, beta2 mod1?

    EDIT: Also, it should work if I put Wiisx on my SD and the game on my USB?

    i think it was up to mod 2 last time i checked but it is by mattguitarist, he has made a few but he felt the one that ran off cios 222 was faster than the one he made that ran off ios58. as for what you suggested about running the emu off sd and the games off usb, i dont see why it wouldnt work

    I think I'm going to try the Mod04b based on beta 2.1. As this one doesn't require any specific cios to be installed. And I'm not sure if I have the one installed for the others ones to run on.

    I'll give this a try and let you guys know what I think.

    Thanks again for the help.

    Ok, I got the controller issue worked out. I had to put the bios on my USB and load the game through the bios. So the CC now works in the game. But now I've ran into a new problem, the frame rate and the audio is choppy. I thought this was supposed to be 100%? Anyone have any advice on what I can do to get things working correctly?

    EDIT: Finally success! The problem with the choppiness was coming from my 8GB flash drive. Once I threw the game on my SD card everything is running beautifully. The CC works, and the frame rate/sound are flawless so far. Right now it seems 100%.

    mod03 has a faster USB2.0 speed than mod04 as it's using cIOS202 v1.1 instead of the IOS58.
    Nintendo's IOS58 is slower than the custom IOS.

    It's not a huge deal. If games are playing fast off my SD card then I guess I'll stick with that. Eventhough I can put more games on the USB. I'll constantly have to switch out games on the SD card.

    Thanks for the help.

    Set the controller to Digital (disable Analog setting).
    Castlevania was released before Analog controllers creation, so the game is not compatible with them. There are a lot of games like that.

    Analog controllers had a switch to enable/disable analog sticks for older games.

    You can map the buttons like you want, but it's better to use a Classic Controller which has the same amount of buttons (except L3/R3).

    Is it possible to use a GC controller somehow?

    I tried it a while ago with Crash Bandicoot but the buttons didn't seem to work for some reason. :-/

    I have a GC to Ps2 adapter that works perfectly. You can even map the buttons that a regular gamecube controller does not have. it's about $4.00 on ebay

    Place a valid bios in the bios folder within your Wiisx folder.
    Select to use bios from wiisx gui.
