I think aside from the bug fixes that assassin17 made, all Secret of Evermore really needs is an optional patch to swap the functionality of the A and B Buttons. You can swap your attack and dash buttons, but you can't swap your confirm and cancel buttons in the menu. It sucks!

There was potential for quality of life improvements too. Islands you couldn't land on previously could have landing zones made and maybe an end game merchant that sells rare materials and ingredients so you can actually max level alchemy spells like Nitro and stuff. There could be later game merchants that have various missable armor available and missable items too.

There is the Laser alchemy spell too - https://tcrf.net/Secret_of_Evermore

Those would be very cool implementations!

Yeah i'd love to see Secret of Evermore get a bit more love. Same with the Soul Blazer Trilogy and Sword of Mana.
But we shouldn't get too far off topic. I only brought it up because I thought Secret of Evermore might have used the same engine as Secret of Mana and with what Timbo has accomplished here and with World of Balance, it really opened my eyes to the possibilities <3

Would there happen to be an all in one hack ips that includes 1.7, msu-1, and the best hacks that go with it not changing to much of the original game? I can't figure out how to patch everything correctly. This would be much appreciated.

Nice! That mod looks awesome. One more question. So I have played SoM before growing up but not in a long time and I never finished it. What's the best way for first playthrough? Turbo or vanilla?

I think the best first playthrough would be just Relocalized. It has vanilla gameplay, and my extension of FuSoYa's VWF script. It also removes censorship.

Turbo is great for a second playthrough and includes Relocalized as an option.

I'm having trouble with applying additional patches after applying Relocalized 1.7.
In addition to Relocalized 1.7, I also want to use the "Restore Unused Fanfares" and "Level 9 Weapons Progression Balance" patches.

All patches seemed to apply successfully. Everything boots up fine. Title screen, and name entry work fine. The intro seems fine until just before the Mode 7 map zoom is supposed to start, but it freezes there.  It shows the first bit of text from the waterfall scene but stops there.  The audio keeps playing.

Help, please!  Thanks in advance!

Timbo: Thanks for all your hard work!  I can't wait to play this!

The easiest way to combine Relocalized with other hacks is to use Secret of Mana: Turbo. It even comes with the most recent version of Relocalized built right in.
