Shining Force 2: Milestone Edition

Postby Stordarth » Sun Aug 22 2010 1:14pm

It's been a while in the making, and it hasn't all been easy. But without further ado, I am proud to present the 1st release of Shining Force 2 - Milestone Edition.

You will probably also need SFEdit.

Readme contained in the following spoiler.

Updated 25/06/11

Changes: Freshly made IPS file. Hopefully, no more issues with patchings not working.

Implemented the stat changes detailed in the latest post.


WARNING: SPOILER!


Thanks go to (in no particular order):
Space King - SF2 Edit, statistics extrapolations.
BNC - The Caravan, and his many many many hacks - great and small - and his continued assistance in implementing them.
Obob - Standalone 3 Digits hack,
Almighty G - For birthing the idea to attempt the SF2 solo hack
Rusty - Inspiration from the SF1 solo hack
Avaj - SFEdit

And anyone else who has posted suggestions to improve the rom and move the project forward.

Good work! :thumbsup:

Always wanted to be able using all characters from the beginning.

So thanks for giving me the oppurtunity to do so!

I am glad to see this finally ready and available. Good work done by everyone involved. Downloaded and will begin playing.................now.



Edit: Why did Rhode ask if....Janet was ready for battle? :lol:

EDIT THE SECOND: Also just one thing to note, if you 'Purge' bowie from the party via the caravan, it works fine, but if you try to replace him with someone, it won't let you. Just if anyone gets confused by that.

Edit the Third: I've just spontaneously decided to work on the force backwards. Instead of starting with Bowie/Sarah/Chester et al, gonig to start with Claude/Lemon/Chaz, then pick up Zynk, Sheela, etc....

Let's Edit again, like we did last summer....: So one-shotting Gizmo's at Level 1 is all the rage at the bottom of the member list :lol: Rebalancing maybe?

nice.

I might do a 4-man Creed team.

Peter (0), Claude (0), Zynk (1), Karna VICR (0), Frayja MMNK (0), Gerhalt (0), Eric PGNT (1), Sarah MMNK (0), Eric PLDN (0), Rick PLDN (0), Sheela VICR (0)

This looks nice. If I didn't just start another game I'd check it out right away...but I'll get to it soon. A 4-man Creed's team sounds like a good idea, as does the backwards force. I want to do something extreme...like a Taya solo...but that would probably be way too hard...depending on the spell list used for Taya as a wizard.

Wizard solos should be nearly impossible without grinding for levels 1 xp at a time.

Dammit... I wasn't sure if i'd applied that one or not... thanks des.

This should do the trick.

I'm also doing a challenge.

I call it "The Five Horsemen of the apocalypse."

Chester, Rick, Eric, Higins and Jaro, all as pegasus knights. :)

NOT SF2EDIT!

SFEDIT :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reminder. I was supposed to edit them into the shop in Galam (the second time round.) I meant to check before releasing it, but couldn't remember. Checking now.


EDIT: Yep. I forgot to add them in. I'll update the main patch in a moment. You should still be fine to patch your already patched rom.

Yes. As there is no access to the mihtril man, there's no other way in game without sf edit.

Most of them are more pricey than the mithril man would charge, so having them all available in the store will be a strain on the ole' wallet.

Incidentally, the package has been updated to include the update shop, and the Bowie can die patch included. just check the link in the OP.

If you guys run into anything else, lemme know.

if i patch it now do you think i'd have any problems with the game i'm currently in? (i'm a few battles in with the creed team)

i wonder how a team of the four spellcasters would do :shock: preferably all WIZs.

also, do you think a solo with the weaker characters would be feasible if you played on Normal?

I'm intrigued by a 4 MMNK game myself.

A bunch of KNTs. :lol:

Most of the weaker solos will be impossible unless you are willing to grind levels at 1 xp per action.

Almost all solos would be crazily difficult on Super, so I wouldn't recommend that at all.
