Yu-No, but it's more convenient to just get the PC version translation with the music patch (ends up being identical to the PC-98 game)
Rusty, it's an ok game with a cool soundtrack, I don't remember if it has a translation because I don't remember if it has dialogue to begin with

Every video of Rusty I've looked at had headache inducing choppy scrolling. Is the PC-98 just really shit at scrolling?

I did, and now I rolled a jap crossword sim, a make woman cum adv and a shitty RPG which really thought it would get a sequel but never did. I'm not sure if it was worth it.
Alternatively they can download the newest version of NP21 and texthook, I'd still recommend that even if you can read Japanese if you play a pretentious kanji game, saves effort on Kanjitomo or drawing it yourself.

What was the screen like on the original ? With the very heavy use of dithering, was it a little blurry? Basically like a pc vga monitor? Would it have 240p scanlines in games or was it more like a pc? How abiut the sharp? What would playing Castlevania look like on the original hardware?

• NP2 is the best emulator but the fullscreen and generally scaling options are fucking ridiculous. You either play it at 1X windowed or you're gonna get your eyes assraped.
• NP2 on retroarch is very limited and a pain in the ass to constantly juggle the menus, but on the other hand I have all the scaling and filter options I need.

Should be the same aside from improved graphics. Believe that was because on the guys made an Engine for the Japs so they could easily port it to all PCs they had so that's what they did. There should be some balancing changes too.

If I'm not bullshitting, the translator found that the original game (or simple the ROM dumped) had a bug where a level was skipped. (9 -> 11; or 5 -> 7)
