SFC News: Shining in the Darkness Script added

Many thanks to SFCer Martin III, who typed up the SitD script a couple of years ago and posted it on the SitD Forum.



I know I've been slack the last few years, but am finally starting to catch up here a little bit at a time. Over my lunch break today I've prepped the script for addition to the site and have imported it - shazam!



So, the script is now available in the scripts section here at SFC, complete with pictures for most of the characters.



I could do with in-game pictures for the following characters as I don't seem to have many SitD screenshots to hand (only played it on the console, not emulated!) - if anyone can provide them that would be great!

Princess Jessa, Jessa Doppler,Xern, Spirit of the Fountain and Mortred.

I could also do with a better picture of Pyra, the one I'm using has her name over it.



Thanks again to Martin, and sorry it's taken me so long to add it. Nice work mate :)

Ask and ye shall receive. :) Not been able to do all of them, given what save states I have available, but most of them are covered. Did them all in 62x78px avatar sizes (as it looks like the pixel avies I made* have been used with the script), although I also made 62x100px versions of a couple to have the characters in full.

Princess Jessa:

Spirit of the Fountain:

Xern (78px & 100px):

Pyra (78px & 100px) - bit of an oddity happened here, as I wound up using a different save state to Gens, meaning the background's vanished... but I think it adds a neat touch:

Alternatively, you could use one of these pics for Pyra or Mrs Myst (I personally like Mrs Myst's glowering)... ;)

This still leaves Jessa-Doppler and Mortred, though... may have save states for these, but probably for different emulators (so may be black backgrounds again).

Also might be worth getting a pic of Gila from his introduction outside of Old Vic's, rather than the one of him in the Trials...


(* Shameless plug ;) )

Sweet! So nice to finally see the script officially added to the site. :thumbsup: Thanks Moogie!

By amazing coincidence, just yesterday evening I finished gathering and typing up all the Shining Force CD headquarters quotes. I don't suppose that if I sent those to you, you'd have time to add them to the SF CD script as well?

Oh, and I have a save state for Mortred, so I went ahead and got a screen shot for him. Give me a minute or two to see if I can remember how to use Photobucket or whatever...

Nice one mate, will try to get those added whenever you send them through :)
That said, we're away for a short break as of Thursday and won't be back until Sunday night - so it may be next week before I action anything (gotta pack tomorrow).

Neato. :)

Forgot to mention that I also tried to get a better pic of Edward, seeing as it's currently with his back turned... but getting him to look at you means his name's in the way, and because he's twisting towards you his body sprite (covered by his name) is different. Perhaps if someone could hack into the ROM and give him a "blank name"...

Here's the Mortred pic, 62x78 as Culley suggested:

If you prefer, I also have shots of him with mask on, mask destroyed but still fighting, etc. But I personally think this one works best.

That's fab Martin, ta :) Have added it in (and put on the black border, no problem).

I could put in a Dark Knight avie for his 'Voice' line, but I'd have to rename voice to Dark Knight, or the same graphic would be used for the voices throughout the game.
