Recent Updates

    Added the following features: - All the shine sprite models have been tinted green, including the ones on the episode select menus and the monument one in Delfino Plaza. - The Shadow Mario wanted poster in Delfino Airstrip has been changed to a wanted poster of Shadow Luigi. - Various shine sprite images have been tinted green. Updated the list of things it still needs by adding these previously unmentioned problems: - The FLUDD nozzles don't always render correctly. - The Luigi model lacks many of the texture-altering features of the original Mario model, such as visibly getting dirty from the goop or closing his eyes when he goes to sleep. - The level entry portals are still "M"s instead of "L"s. - The goop originally at Delfino Airstrip is still in the shape of a Mario head with an "M" above it instead of a Luigi head with an "L" above it. I also added in the description that people should explain how they created the new assets they make for this mod to me so I can more easily alter them if necessary. And I changed two of the pictures to show off the newly green tinted shine sprite models and textures.

Shining Force Join Order Randomizer

Hack of Shining Force

Description:

This patch makes the game randomize the timings at which characters join, with the exception of Max himself and the non-promotable characters: Domingo, Musashi, and Hanzou only randomize between each other, and Jogurt remains fixed. Characters’ starting levels are also swapped to match whoever’s spot they replaced.

Some character inventories are also affected: Domingo swaps equipment with whoever replaces him (so as to not have a Katana or Doom Blade by chapter 4) and Lyle’s weapon is replaced by the same initial weapon as Hans if Lyle’s starting level is less than 8 (so as to not have an Elven Arrow at the start of the game).

Cutscene sprites and dialogue are not affected, but join messages are changed to match the new character, with the exception of the first group of 4.

Characters’ stats are entirely untouched by the main patch, which may lead to some balance issues: since Bleu and Adam originally start at very low levels and had stat progressions with that in mind, Bleu and Adam’s unpromoted classes get extraordinarily high stats and whoever replace them start with really low levels. This side-patch is available to somewhat alleviate these issues, with some bonus starting level changes (details in readme). There’s also an alternative side-patch that only upwardly adjusts starting levels and leaves Bleu Adam’s stat progressions intact.
