Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse Forum  /  Wrong warp guide?
  RedPepperRedPepper

Hi! I was trying to learn the wrong warp used in the Any% category to go from level 4 to level A, mostly just out of curiosity but possibly to try doing some runs in the future. I've tried following the movement in the WR video as close as I could, but I appear to be not understanding something about how it works, because most of the time I crash the game or get stuck on an invisible platform, or one time I did make it to the screen where you fall off and die but just crashed the game instead of reaching level A. I haven't been able to locate an actual explanation of how the glitch works mechanically online. Also I was using a password to start directly at level 4, so I don't know if that would cause it to not work.

Can anybody give me a rundown of all of the requirements to make the glitch work? In particular in that one horribly glitchy room with the glitched fishmen and going up and down the invisible stairs multiple times, I feel like I'm probably missing something there. Thanks for any help in advance!

I, too, would enjoy a good read of that guide but not sure if anyone wants to divulge those secrets to us plebs yet. I know the getting to the wrong warp involves a very interesting Grant/Trevor swapping glitch, but I have yet to nail even that part (not like I've tried long). but I'd love to have an official "how to" on it so I could maybe expand beyond the single-character runs someday in the future.

Hi,

You cannot use a password to start in stage 4 unfortunately. You need to visit the clocktower. You may also need full health when starting stage 4, though I'm not 100% on that but I think that's the case, collecting the meat before the end of forest is fine.
Once you start stage 4 you cannot take a hit from the frogs or anything else during the glitch until the near final screen where you get hit by the fire from a bone pillar.

So, oddly, while practicing a different trick for a different route, I am wondering, is there anyone willing to do a video tutorial (even if it's just game sounds) using emulator with the input display on? or, just... having input display on a video of someone doing it? I know JC does his hand cam but buttons get obscured and all that jazz... that might be as helpful/more helpful than text. just a thought

Sorry, I have been busy with some other things for the past few days, but I was actually able to get the wrong warp to work playing on emulator (so that I could use save states for assistance.) I haven't gotten to testing it on console yet, but I imagine it should be the same. Thank you guys for the help!

I was still wondering if anybody can explain more in depth what exactly the goal is in that room with the glitched fishmen and the really glitchy graphics though. It seems like your movement in that room affects whether you'll be able to do the rest of the warp or not (in particular for me it seems like if I do it wrong then a few rooms later there will be a bone dragon blocking my path.) I feel like that's the main part that's still confusing me... does it have something to do with having to scroll the screen to certain positions while going up and down the stairs multiple times?
