Why Hasn't Anyone Hacked Shining Force 3 Scenarios 2,3?

by nobodysleeps Sun Mar 12, 2006 6:25 am

I think for all the games that have already been translated from japanese to english, that Shining Force 3 Scenarios 2 and 3 definitely need to be modded so that we could play it as well. Anyone agree? I dunno..just thought I'd throw it out there

I'm pretty sure there are written translations, but I don't think anybody has made a patch yet...

(Welcome to the forum!) :D

oh well then I'll be sure to check those out. Wish I had the knowledge to put those together! Not to mention I'll need to find Scenario 2 and 3 -_-

(Thanks! ^^)

I think the main problem with those hacks is that you have to replace the Japanese character with English words. And the technical parts of the replacement isn't the issue so much, but the fact that the Japanese takes much fewer characters for the phrases etc. than English. So trying to squeeze a lot of English in a limited amount of space is an issue.

Of course, I could be wrong so don't take my word as a final authority.
