The rom is not in zip format. 
I did test it in an emulator and it works there, but does not work on the N8.

I meant to unzip or copy the rom to PC instead of directly unzipping it to the N8. Sometimes the ROMs don't work when they are directly unzipped to the Everdrive N8.

I'm just going to revert back to OS_v16. 20_rc7 is just way too buggy. And CSIII boots for me on OS_v16.

I got good results using AVS firmware 30 beta 5 and EverDrive N8 firmware OS 20 RC6

I use the Japanese version translated and with custom alucard sprite, on my hi-def nes the sound is fantastic! Not a big fan of the control hack as this changes the essence of the game.

I'm using the JDM version along with the hacks to translate the game and improve controls, works fine on my Famicom (great sound, BTW) but I can't get save states to work? The other Castlevania games work fine with this feature, but not this one for some reason?

Maybe the special mapper in Castlevania 3 use up the space on the FPGA preventing save state feature from working?

There are only a handful of games that even use that mapper...

Yes, I looked up the list here: http://www.dbwbp.com/misc/Everdrive_N8_Compatibility_List_(OS_V15).pdf

Seems Castlevania III/Akumajou Densetsu is one of the few games that does not support save states. A real shame, because I'd probably finally be able to complete the game with that addition, haha.

I thought the V20 beta/RC firmware supported save states on all mappers.  That's what it says in the news release, anyway.

Thanks for mentioning those firmwares, yes, I downloaded one and now am able to use save states with the game. Why are these O.S's not considered "official" yet?

Because there still are issues in those RC's, obviously. Krikzz improved v20's as far as he could ATM, found the result unsatisfactory to be an official release and took his time off. Wait until he decides to return to this project. And read v20-specific topic for more details.
