Description:

Seiken Densetsu 3 / Trials of Mana – Better Monsters and Maps

v2.1, by hmsong

There were many places in the game where the enemy groups and/or levels were unsatisfactory. This patch intends to mitigate those. In addition, I also added/deleted numerous things to make the game experience less frustrating, without compromising the original gameplay.

Many maps were changed to accommodate numerous improvements. There were LOTS of changes, so please contact me (contact info attached) if you find any error.

Please refer to the attached document for more specific details.

If anyone wants me to add/delete some things in particular maps, let me know. I’m open for suggestions, and I may be able to work out a solution.

BIG thanks to Map Jester (https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/986/). Map Jester is a SD3 map editing tool. 90+% of map information for SD3 for this patch came from using this tool.

Applying Notes:

  • This is specifically for No Header ROM. If you only have a Headered ROM, then you can use TUSH (https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/608/) to remove the header.
  • Compatible with the English NCorlett-translation patch. But again, you need a No Header ROM. If you are using the translation patch from Romhacking.net, then you need to apply the translation to a Headered ROM first, then use TUSH to remove the header. And then you can apply these patches.
  • Compatible with the new Trials of Mana ROM, released in 2019. But again, you need a No Header ROM.

There are other hacks for Seiken Densetsu 3 that you should check out:

Sin of Mana

  • http://ngplus.net/index.php?/files/file/28-seiken-densetsu-3-sin-of-mana/
  • This changes the contents of the game in many ways, such as equipment bonus, level-up change, class balance, difficulty, boss behaviors, running in battles, MP regeneration, dungeon format, and tons of bug fixes. It’s a completely new game though, since so much has changed, and the game progress is slightly different.
  • There is also a forum (google “Sin of Mana forum”), where you can ask the creator (praetarius5018) numerous questions. He is very helpful, and even helps you to create your own hack. He certainly did for me.
  • Sin of Mana is NOT compatible with the new Trials of Mana.
  • Sin of Mana is NOT compatible with hmsong’s patches.

Please leave comments or reviews. This would give the creator ideas on what is good or not, and depending on the situation, even revise the patches. You can also send me an email (address in the attached document).

If you have any questions or find errors, please PM hmsong on Romhacking.net (click the name, then click the name next to “Forum Account”, then click “Send PM”).
