ROM Hacks: Secret of Evermore Gameplay Balance hack released
« on: October 09, 2009, 11:56:07 am »

Update By: Ninakoru

Secret of Evermore is an incredible Action RPG game of the late years of the Super Nintendo. You play with two characters, a boy and his dog, who get trapped themselves in a fantasy world called Evermore. The story is quite original, and, for a change, more funny than serious.

This game had, until today, very few patches to play with. We had the great multiplayer patch and a few known bugs fixes, but nothing more.

Just here we have a fully-featured patch that deal with many internal aspects of the game, with the objective of having a challenging and more enjoyable experience with this already great game.

This is one of the snes rpg's (or whatever else you wanna call it, adventure game, etc.!) that I have not beaten on the snes...

Is this a pretty good game?

It has the unfortunate distinction of being the lesser cousin of Secret of Mana. That doesn’t make it bad, it just makes it look bad by comparison. A balance hack for it is a really good thing.

yeah it's great, I had the luxury of playing it before Secret of Mana.

I actually prefer it to be honest and with the balance hack I'd say it's a must play.

Lesser cousin my foot.

Evermore has better music, better writing, and I would agree it even looks better.

All Mana's got over it is more content.

You can't even call Mana balanced considering the infinite magic loop.

Can the balance hack be combined with the bug fix hacks (like fixing the silver sheath bug, and bazooka ammo bug fix)?  And do the bug fix hacks require a header or a headerless rom?

He added those fixes in. And according to his topic in the Personal Projects sub-forum, it even works with the two player hack.

I think BRPXQZME's point is simply that it is known as being related to the Mana series, rather than being known for it's own merit. No one here is saying Evermore is a bad game. I myself have a copy and played through it dozens of times as a kid.

As I grew older and learned to romhack, I was actually surprised that the people who did this were American, and actually implemented a VWF into the game (whereas the team who worked on Secret of Mana did not).

Dwedit is probably thinking about the versions that were released in Europe and the Americas. I'm not sure about the Japanese version, but I'd doubt it, since it's of little use.

Hmm. I guess it's just been a while since I played it. It does indeed have a VWF, but it's only for the dialog. Menus are still FWF.

Are there plans to make the hack compatible with the various European versions?

Why?  What does the UK version have that's different form the US version?  I mean an emulator will play either one.

There were another versions released in different countries of Europe (here we can make a joke about the UK not being Europe), those countries being Spain, Germany and France, and you can guess which is the main difference every version has compared with the US one.

Although the UK version has at least one thing that the US version does not have: It runs at 50 fps :P

I played this when it first came out as a kid. then replayed it back in 2005 when i was rich and living in a high rise (i am now poor and back with the parents). I never thought it needed a balance hack since it was beatable as a kid and i beat it as an adult.

great game though

7th saga THAT game needed a balance hack
