    Hi, another update to the IPS files in the Zip. There was another error found in the IPS files in the Zip that prevented progress at one point in the post-game. The error has been fixed and this new Zip file now contains the correct IPS patches. Same version number. Thank you!

Luka's Pets

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This hack gives Luka a series of monsters as pets locked in her dungeon basement.

This is done in part to eliminate the badly-programmed Luka-in-jail event, which appears to have never been finished in the original game as the dialog makes little sense and when you “free” her from jail, she remains trapped behind the jail cell in all your subsequent visits for a time before she finally moves upstairs some time later. It also provides a better rationale for why Luka very curiously has a jail cell in the basement of her palace to begin with…

Which pet monster she has will change over time as the game progresses. The progression is indexed to Whip orb acquisition:

1. Water Thug (Whip orbs 1, 2, and 3)

2. Shellblast (Whip orbs 4 and 5)

3. Turtlance (Whip orbs 6 and 7)

4. Ice Thug (Whip orbs 8 and 9)

Important things to note:

  • How to combine this with the Variable Width Font hack: 1. Apply VWF, 2. Remove header, 3. Apply this hack, 4. Apply this hack’s VWF support hack.
  • How to combine this with Relocalized: 1. Apply Relocalized, 2. Apply this hack, 3. Apply this hack’s Relocalized support hack.
