All Characters Level 1 Hack

Postby CajNatalie » Fri May 14 2010 11:27pm

Not long ago, I released an all-Level-1 hack with correct stats, but it was limited to 7 forward characters for the whole game.
After a little experimentation, I realized that 12 characters is fine... just the lowest on the force list won't be able to join any battles at first is all (this also means Zylo, Musashi, Hanzou, Jogurt, and Nova, will only become available a battle or few later).

Important (Sort Of)
In the first battle, only the top 7 members in the list out of the 12 you put forward will fight, but then in battle 2, the top 9 will fight.
Since, in battle 2, you can't go back to HQ and switch people around, it's recommended you pick which 2 you want to join in battle 2 along with your 7.

Note: I have attempted to place Mae and Gort in the lower slots where the game stores who's on the force... and this seems to ensure they don't show up in Battle 1 (regardless of where they are in the force list). But I think this only works as long as you don't go talking to Nova and using the Join function.

Shining Force (Almost) All Characters Level 1 Hack

Battle Limits
Each battle will only use the following numbers of force members...
Battle 1: 7
Battle 2: 9 (Zylo and Musashi usable)
Battle 3: 9
Battle 4: 10 (Hanzou usable)
CHAPTER 2
Battle 5: 11 (Jogurt usable)

Once you enter the Cave of Darkness, you will be able to use a full force of 12.
Since Nova is at the bottom of the list, the Cave of Darkness is the earliest he can become usable in... and since Anri normally joins at Level 3 for this battle, I set Nova's level to 3 for here.

Tip
Save your stat-boosters (eg: Power Potion) for later, so that when characters join in the later battles, you can give them a little boost to make it easier to level them to catch up with the rest of the force.
This won't be necessary for Hanzou/Musashi, of course... and Nova has already been preleveled.

Doom Blade & Katana
Musashi and Hanzou both start with Short Swords.
In the first battle of Chapter 7, there is a Durahan who normally carries a Doom Blade, and still has a Doom Blade... but I also gave it a Katana to hold (IIRC).
I'm hoping that when it's killed, it will drop both blades (I set Katana to be droppable like the Doom Blade, so as far as I know, it should work).

I find it interesting that Nova has HQ lines. Did you add these or were they already in the game?

My Starting squad:

Max
Alef
Gort
Guntz
Khris
Lyle
Balbaroy

EDIT:

With these guys I figured I'd challenge myself and do a no healer run. After Chapter 1 my team is

Max
Alef
Gort
Guntz
Arthur
Lyle
Balbaroy
Bleu
Adam
Kokichi

Soon Zylo will join and then Nova, just because :)

I'm not skilled enough at hacking to do that... I'm just good with tools. :p

Nova's lines must've been there already. :thumbsup:

I'm trying to challenge myself as well and use all mages/fliers + Max. It's a good thing I count Domingo as a mage :lol: I don't count Arthur as one though.

Just beat Chapter One, will let you know if the durahan drops the katana. Also:

I don't think he's playable until you get Anri, but I played through this patch just to test it out. His battle sprite looks like a multi-colored version Kokichi. I don't have the screen shot since I tested this when it was first released.

Nova's HQ quote is just taken from another character's - I think Mae's? Been a while so I'm a little Rusty there. ;)

I want to try this, but how do you even open a ".gsx" file?

So I've got the file and I want to attach it to the game, but I can't even open it.

Help...

a gsx file is basically a save state :)

so you can open the rom you want to use and then load the save state (the .gsx file)

hope that helps mate :)

Oh, I was envisaging a file I needed to open that would contain a patch or something.

Thanks for the help Loftus.

Okay, well I have Kega and Gens, so it should work in one of them.

Always wanted Nova the adviser to be playable, now we just need Boken to join...

I forgot about this...kinda glad it got bumped. I'm going to try it out with a force of folks I don't usually use (including Adam, Alef, Torasu, Vankar, and some others). Any known bugs I need to look out for?
