He is supposed to, in the japanese version.

And since the wolf in Shining Force III is called Frank, I realized they had intended to honor Frank Zappa.

So this mod uses all of these translated names?

I'm guessing the answer is yes so I'll have to find a way to change their names, at this point the names are too ingrained in for me to be able to switch.

No. The only change is Zappa.
I felt the others were only simple changes, without a deeper meaning.

Oh sweet. That's not so bad then. I can probably handle the Zylo change. Zappa is a cool name after all even if I didnt know the reference.

Found a few bugs. The chest at the ancient tower won't open if you search it after the battle is over. And Kane's attack animation does not display properly. He just stands there and the opponent gets hit. If he uses one of his swords his animation does show however.

That chest is a long time bug.
I tried to fix it long ago, but couldn't.
Will give it another try, but can't promise it will work.
The safest way to get it is picking the chest during the battle.

As for Kane's animation, that's pretty strange.
I playtested it and it worked just fine. Went until the end of the game and he was beautifully beating Dark Dragon! :)
Are you sure you haven't edited the rom or something?

That may be. Or it might be because I used Gens instead of Kega Fusion. I'll try again.

EDIT: It's working now. :)

Off topic but can someone please tell me how to get Kega Fusion to work in Fullscreen?

I use Windows 10 before anyone asks.

When I try I get this:

I just press ALT + ENTER and it goes full screen.

That message you're getting seems related to Direct3D.
Don't know how or if it works with Kega Fusion.

Major Bug Found. Jogurt is now completely useless. Because if you try to attack with him a weird attack loop gets created and then the screen turns black.

That's really weird, as I haven't touched Jogurt for this update.

I'll see what I can find and try to make a quick update to fix it, though I can't playtest it right now.
Maybe I'll send you the patch and you test it before I upload it as a new version, ok?

For some reason the Flail appears nameless in the editor. You have to be careful about this sort of thing because unnamed items will crash the game if you even so much as search a spot containing one.

Yes.
When I was inserting Kane's weapon I ran into trouble with the number of letters used, and had to make some changes.
I, then, realized the flail wasn't being used at all (if you find any in the game, please let me know), and could be ripped off.

I haven't run into a crash in my playtest. Hope you won't too. ;)
