I am in the same boat as you, I am thinking it has to do with the first battle as Richter.....

Frikkin Christ, I spent almost 3 hours retracing, the room I was missing was right across the save point by the Dracula battle that contains a heart refresh.....

I am sitting at 200.5% and missing exactly 1 room as well. To aid in finding the missing room, I took digital cam pics of both castles, and used photoshop to overlay them against each other.

As expected, the overlays were identical save the minor variations between the underwater caverns.

This has me stumped, because to miss EXACTLY one room means that the missing room CANNOT be in either the normal castle or the inverted version (since the explored maps are identical, if I was missing a room, I would be missing an even number of rooms, not ONE room exactly).

This leads me to believe the missing room is somehow related to that 0.6% percent nonsense which is outside the castle. Does anyone know what areas this constitutes ? I've done the Dracula library card trick as well. Everything in me smells glitch, especially given my experience on XBLA with things like Alien Hominid.

Unless someone proves me wrong, I'm chalking this up to another buggy / glitched acheivement.

Have you battled dracula yet in your game? Since you dont actually save before killing him the last room is your 200.6% but your saved game will be 200.5%..

When I played I used no gimmicks or tricks I just made sure to hit every room and hidden area and Im saved at 200.5 when I jumped down in the room to fight dracula It unlocked the achievement and I beat the game.

If you have 200,4% then you don't have every room on your map. =)
The Bloodlines stage doesn't count at all. I suggest you to take a picture of both of your maps and post them here, and maybe somebody will take a look at them. Thats what I did yesterday and got 200,6%.

I have attached a photo of my 200.5% map, which is what was discovered including using the dracula/library card.

Anyone who can spy the missing room and point it out would have to have amazing skills.

I've gone through the whole game twice now, got every secret, did the wolf trick in the reverse caverns and warped out of drac's room and I'm stuck at 200.5% in both games. Im at 1889 rooms, but there isn't a room or outline of map missing anywhere, I'm just going to have to do the heart refresh glitch.

i've tried overlaying both maps in photoshop and aside from the caverns not lining up, i can't seem to find the difference.

your help is greatly appreciated. in the meantime, back to the caverns for me..

Going to the hidden room in the beginning w/ Richter doesn't help your %. There's 100.3% in each castle (0.3% being the secret rooms).

I just got the achievement and I carelessly never went into the secret room with Richter.

943 is exactly what I ended up with when I got done with the regular castle, and I could not find the other two!

I got this achievement last night finally! I had 943 rooms in the regular castle, and in the inverted castle, I saved the dracula area above the clock-room for last. Before I went from the clock-room to fight dracula, I had 199.1%.

My bro finally got ALL the rooms! 200.6% baby! So I guess they fixed the "glitch" in the XBL version. We went to the extreme to make sure that we explored every room.

I was using my PSP to hop online, just to get the map on the screen. While my bro went online with the computer in the room next door to see if he can get some tips. We were short 2 rooms and one of them had to do with the stupid rocks(transforming in and out) and the other we had to do the "doggie paddle" to fill up the upper left part of the map. All in all, it was a good challenge. I'm just glad to have this game completed and under my belt. Good luck to everyone!

Hampee, the second square you're missing is in the 'normal' version of the castle. It's in the underground caves area. There's a secret room in the secret area that is only unlockable with the demon familiar. (demon lackey flips a switch to open it) This second secret you have to break a wall to open.

I've just bought this game, but here's my strategy:

I've printed the two map versions off. Normal and Inverted. Now I play the game normally, until I reach my first save point. I save, then proceed to scribble out all of the rooms I've fully explored on my way to the save point. I proceed through the game upto the next save point, and continue to again, scribble out the rooms I've fully explored. I'm planning to use this method until I've gotten myself 200.6% explorations.

Doing this, shows me what rooms I've fully explored. The reason I only start to scribble the rooms I've fully explored at save points, is because if I scribble after every room I fully explore, and I die, I lose my progress until the last save point I saved at. This would make me more prone to common mistakes on my map-scribbling process.

Hope this helps.
