Update By: Timbo

Secret of Mana: Relocalized just got better!

That's right, the hack that updated FuSoYa's beloved VWF hack and uncensored everyone's favorite Murderbot, was just updated to version 1.6 and has now added a major quality of life improvement: Mixed Case Naming!

Additionally, this update includes:
- Revised spell descriptions with Statistical Data like MP Cost and Spell Power.
- Some spell, status, and item names were updated for improved conciseness, comprehension, or modernized to match the Seiken Densetsu series' current nomenclature.
- Reversion to the punctuated message system used in all versions prior to v1.5.
- Removal of non-canon references to Popoi's gender during the Sandship scene.

I love love love your relocalized project for SoM, and it's cool your building off of Fuyosa's Variable Width Font edition patch, but since you are working on this, could you please fix the spelling error for the man on the Turtle Island who says "I'm was born in the empire, but the emperor's gone nuts!" ??? that spelling error has driven me crazy since the first time I played Fuyosa's VWF patch... It should be "I was born in the empire" lol... not "I'm was" or maybe "I'm from the empire, but the emperor's gone nuts, so I escaped here with my family."

Always nice to see this patch getting improved. Every new version is the most definitive version of the game... yet!
Eventually, maybe Timbo will somehow restore all the SNES CD content that was scrapped... ::)

Not gonna lie, I kind of miss some of the statuses, like "Ballooned", "Tangled", and "Frostied", especially since their sprites kind of show that. I also just like reading stuff like "Engulfed"... but I guess that's just me lol

There's also some small changes that I find unnecessary. Like renaming Jema -> Gemma or Phanna -> Pamaela, or even changing the Palaces to Temples/Shrines.

On an unrelated note, would it be too far to ask for an included hack that changes the charge attack? It'd make more sense in my opinion for the charge attack to default to the highest level attack acquired, rather than waiting for multiple different charges.

Did anyone happen to make another all in one patch including this and all the other best hacks not changing things too much? I would greatly appreciate it.
