in the Connect Attack

the six chara is random, ecept the last (i only see the first or the second to repeat)

all connect characters use his turn

the next chara (second - third - etc) use de A Button attack
i recommend change A attack with a Normal Type Level 3, you have 4 hits for each chara and make 1.25 burst for each chara

Burst Level 6 is the last

if you use Elemental Type and not Normal, you charge the last bar, its cause much more damage a an rapid makeit

EDIT = the sixth chara have 150 FC

got my copy as well and it really seems like a cool game, although I only have played the first 2 battles so far. Does anyone have a little guide to the menu and stuff? At the moment I don't have the time to read through the whole thread to check if this has been answered before, I'll do it, as soon as I've time for it :blush:

Another thing, is there any way to Egress like in the old SF games? I accidentally reset a fight once, but I don't think I got extra XP, so I guess it wasn't really like the old Egress :roll:

Moogie has been posting bits of the menus here and there in this forum. With a bit of looking I'm sure you could put together most of it.

I don't think there is egress but apparently you can refight(?) old battles or at least take the battles out of order.

If I've got time today I'll try to put together some kind of play guide with what the menus do and the other info I've posted around in various topics :)

Yay!! I?ve got mine too, and so far, this is a great experience in terms of gameplay in my opinion. Even though I don?t understand anything the characters are saying, it seems it has alot of humor, alot of dialogue and many development going on there!

The level-up system is a nice touch too, not exactly what we always see on RPGs, so a good surprise on this aspect. Another great thing is the animation and sprites... somehow they looked crappier on the v?deos that have been showd :p

Anyway, some photos of the package (is it allowed to post them? if yes, just delete the post then)

My copy finally came in the mail yesterday - about time, Play Asia!

Looking quite excellent thus far. I'm enjoying the feel of the whole thing. While I haven't gotten into the gameplay deep enough to cast a rating, the basics at least are well-handled.

But really, this game needs an English language version. Sooooo much dialogue... Sooooo many menus... It's playable enough in Japanese, but I feel like I'm missing out on the full experience.

On a final note, the Feather is the coolest Shining Headquarters ever. Sure, the Caravan was more unique, but you couldn't see the inside of the thing. This baby is stylish and luxurious.

Shining Force Feather looks like a nice game, but I don't know about that Jin. Is he as unpleasant in personality as he is in appearance? He looks like a total punk. Much love for Baile, though.

I played the game round about 13h during this week and although I don't understand a single word I have to say I really like it.

And because of Jin I somehow really like his appearance because I think he's not such a cliche hero like e.g Bowie was.

According to Silverwolf(in an older topic): "Jin's personality is typical rowdy, confident guy with abit of a foul mouth and hates formality, but he is really a big softie at heart."

I don't much care for Jin's appearance in itself, either, but it's a different look that I might grow to like. My first impression of Milanor(Yggdra Union) was that he was some weird cross-breed with a rat that managed to go even more horribly wrong, but by the end of the game I actually enjoyed his appearance.

EDIT: Fixed formatting of quote.

Jin isn't as rowdy as you think he is, and his antics are great fun. He gets along with almost anyone and his heck care hard to faze personality is great. The guy had me laughing crazy a few times.

Once Alfin develops herself more, the dialouge she will have with him is nice. As for early game, Jin and Bail's dialouge is also pretty hilarious. Anyway, Jin compliments wellw ith the rest of the cast, so his rpesence really si there and you'll like him.

Provided you can understand japanese that is. Else it'll just look like he is always angry or being a sarcastic jerk. LOL.

The battles do look Shiny, I love the little sprites and I think the zoom feature on the battle map is really handy.



Especially because Flightplan graphics are much different then any other series.. They are good, especially on max attacks, but not the type of 3d I'm used to.

This probably is the best shining game is a decade, because it has inspired me to go back and finish the final conflict gaiden. And maybe finish neo (that is if i can beat the damn boss). I havent even touche EXA or Tears yet... but Ill probably have to play SFIII again because it is undoubtedly the best.

While Feather has some good improvments ont he tactical part of the series, I somehow wish it was kept in the straight line block type form... but maybe that is too classic lol.

A game looks pretty nice, plays smoothly, is fun, and definitely worthy for the series... I guess I just wish it was more like some of the older ones.

It seems more and more like a good game as the story progresses on. Does anyone think battles take a little too long tho?

Hey Moogie or any current players.

I have a question RE: Game content. Feel free (and I suggest) throwing any answer into a hide spoiler box.

One of the big draws for me personally in SF games were hidden items, content and of course, hidden characters. Have you come across anything along these lines yet??

Nope, but there is a cameo from EXA and some bonus tougher battles. Nothing is hidden or anything though and the game is straightforward as can be.

Thanks for letting me know.

Bit of a dissapointment, I dont remember any SF games (ones done in the strat-RPG format that we love), not having hidden content.

I remember the first time I played through SFII. Finding out i missed out on this little guy >>>> :eyebrow:
I love beating a game, and then rebeating it a 2nd time while uncovering every hidden aspect of the game and ensuring 100% completion. No hidden content = lack of replay value??

Are there ANY draws to replaying the game? (has anyone finished it yet).

Not that I know of. Other than watching the characters' antics all over again.
