Help Modding a Game
« on: July 20, 2021, 08:36:25 am »
Hey everyone,

I'm not the most tech savvy person, but I'd love to modify Shining Force 2 to give it some more playability. I have an emulator and ROM that run fine, but I looked through the site and can't figure out how to actually apply the mod. I downloaded "War of the Gods" but am not sure what program I need to run that file, or where to put it to have it work on the game. Any instruction would be awesome. Thanks!

Cyonide

I don't know what "War of the Gods" is. Perhaps you could provide a link to the relevant website?

(Also, when you start a thread about a specific game, it is useful to put the title of the game in the subject line of your thread.)

Apparently, War of the Gods is the name of a hack of SF2. Is this what you're referring to, Cyonide? https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4664/

If so, Romhacking.net does not host ROMs, only patches. To apply IPS Patches, use a patching program, ike Lunar IPS. http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/240/

Yes indeed, it says Lunar IPS right on that page.
