Don't know if this program is still actively being worked on anymore but I tried to use it on a save and it corrupted it. Gave a bunch of what appeared to be Japanese lettering on some of the characters followed by a hard crash. Was hoping at the time it would have helped me by pass the second to last battle game crashing bug but instead it reverted my save back to the 5 chapter for some weird reason though ironically that also fixed the problem since apparently the source of the bug is the monsters that one of the characters tames. Anyways, it would be nice if this worked now since it would have allowed me to upgrade the level high enough so I don;t have to grind again for another week just to get back to where I was.

This looks like it could be fun. Grabbed the Source and the installer, just to see what kind of damage I can do.

Which patch version do you use? I am pretty sure this was fixed a few versions ago.

I haven't tried it, but I was also thinking about possibilities of using the editor to make enemies stronger :)

Hello,

I'm having some trouble, I'm hoping someone can help. Long story short, I just started SF3 scenario 2 and I'm using someone else's complete scenario 1 data. For whatever reason, the main character of scenario 2 and several others from scenario 1 don't have their names in the story line or in battle. So I thought I'd try the save editor to put the names back in and also for other uses in the future. However, when I open the save from editor, I get an error - an unhandled exception. Then I can't select any characters from the top left of the editor or do much else, it seems.

Below is the full text from the details of the error. Can someone help? Thanks!

UPDATE - I tried running some general windows error checks and reinstalled some .net stuff. Also, it seems the way I pulled the save out had corrupted it. I started from scratch with the save with the saturn backup ram parser and things started to work. I'm writing this update so nobody spends time trying to figure out my strange situation. Thanks again and blessings upon all involved in the Shining Force 3 translation project!

Anytime I use the save editor, I always isolate the save by saving it to system memory by itself. Then copy the save file to the editor directory to fiddle with. Saving it back to the same file and overwriting. If all goes well, I move the file back into the emulation directory and move or load it in game. I rarely have any issues.

And as always, be sure to have the latest translation version. Nothing to do with names in the save file, but I'm obligated to remind folks. :)
