Secret of Mana - hacks compatibility?
« on: June 04, 2019, 06:55:28 pm »
Hi Everyone! :)

I've been meaning to finally replay-through Secret of Mana(haven't played through it since it came out on the SNES back in the day!), and I see these wonderful hacks for the game. However, I'd like to playthru the game again using some of these hacks. So I was wondering if anyone here knows if the hacks are compatible? More specifically, are these 2 below compatible if I patch them to the same rom?

Secret of Mana: Relocalized
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4324/

Level 9 Weapons Progression Balance
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4309/

Any help would be great! Thanks!! :D

Hey 8.bit.fan! There's actually an installer program by Queue called "Secret of Mana, Turbo" that can apply pretty much every available Secret of Mana mod out there. (Exceptions being FuSoYa's VWF Edition and my Proper-caser, since Timbo based Relocalized off of the former, and did the same thing in his patch as the latter set out to do.)

Hope that helps! You can also use Advanced Patch Conflict Finder by Leet Sketcher to find out if patches have problems working together. https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1386/

At present they are not compatible.

vivify93 is right that Queue reconciled them in his Turbo patcher, but the version of Level 9 Weapons Progression Balance included in the patcher is out of date.

I'm currently working on an update to Level 9 Weapons Progression Balance that will add compatibility with Relocalized (as well as adds a few more features), so if you can wait another week or so I'd recommend just using that.
