SF3Patch Version 14 Released!

The Shining Force III Translation V14 has been released! Download from the button to the right.

The V14 test period was fruitful and many improvements have been made over the last month or so. I’d like to thank everyone who provided feedback to help make V14 the best it could be.

The patch has come a long way since V13, and is getting better all the time. It’s amazing that the issues are now few enough that I’m able to ask the community for feedback on the entire package and address every comment in a single forum thread. Not that it is perfect yet (Sc3 in particular still has a little ways to go), but it is really coming together after all these years of effort.

It’s a great time to be a shining fan. It’s good to see all of us coming together to respond to recent events that threaten our community. It’s a perfect time to enjoy the latest and greatest SF3 translation patch!

    Thank you for all your efforts. The Spanish translation will follow through this version even better (if possible) than before.

    A greeting.

    Muchísimas gracias por todos vuestros esfuerzos. Seguiré la traducción al español por medio de esta versión, aún mejor (si cabe) que la anterior.

    Un saludo.

  7. i couldnt help but notice that someone said that were bugs in shining force 3 scenario 3 chapter 2 with the translation patch but how did you make it to chapter 2 when the game freezes at the end of chapter 1? im using ssf by the way. i know im not that far into the game but i really hope i dont have to start all over again. i mean, i will if i have to but i wanna avoid it if i can. from what im reading here, with the translation patch version of sf3s3, you cant get past chapter 1 right? or am i missing something here? it always gives me a black screen at the end of chapter 1.

    The freeze at the end of Sc3 Ch1 was fixed in V13. You should not be getting a black screen there anymore.

    I really need your help regarding SF3. I had the first version when it was released on the Saturn.

    I saw the patches… but I don’t understand if I am supposed to buy the Japanese Saturn and the 3 x SF 3 games to use the patch?

    I really want to go through the game. It has been my favorite.

    If you know anyway, I could play it, I would be soooooooooo happpppyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    Review the other pages here on the official site, specifically Patch Instructions and Emulation. If you plan to emulate then all you need are the original games and a computer. If you want to play on a real saturn, you either need to have a mod-chipped saturn or learn the swap trick.

    Hi there, Absolutely loving your work! Downloaded the English Translations, and got to the end of Chapter 1, Episode 2, and I’m having issues with the game freezing as Synbios appears at the railroad tracks.

    I’ve got the latest SF3 patch, and I’m using SSF Version 998 Alpha R4. Is there anything you can suggest to fix this issue? =)

    Hopefully my workload will die down and I can finally have a go through this. It’s been 2 versions since my last playthrough.

    Thanks again dude – The work is thoroughly appreciated!
