SF3Patch Version 17 Released!

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

The Shining Force III Translation V17 is now available! Download from the button to the right.

In addition to many minor improvements across all 4 discs (primarily Sc2 and Sc3 this time), the following will probably be the most visible:

  • Sc2 polished through the end of Ch2
  • Hero meeting 3 during and after the Suspension Bridge battle has been coordinated between Sc1 and Sc2.
  • In Sc1, clarity added to the dialog in Malorie after Wilmer takes you to the waiting room.
  • In friendship battle messages, the name of the character you’ve gained a friendship level with is now shown in the bold/blue text.
  • In Sc1 Blacksmiths when picking up ordered items, the name of the item is now shown in the bold/blue text to match the other scenarios.
  • Sc1 Ch3 ruins renamed to Holy Road Ruins (previously Tidal Flats)
  • Sc1 mercs named to match SF2 mercs (Karna, Eric, Tyrin, Randolf)
  • Changed “Condition” in status to “Effects” to allow this to remain blank unless a status effect is present. This goes a long way towards eliminating the text ghosting in the status dialog.

Thanks to everyone who gave feedback and submitted errors during the past year. In particular, I would like to thank SFC member Hrith for the excellent (Sc2 and Sc3) report. There were a few that will require some research and will have to wait for the next version, but I got all the others incorporated.

Translator volunteer Tasia continues to produce at a modest pace and we are only a few files away from having Sc2 completely reviewed for accuracy!

I’m also totally jacked because a fairy told me the long-time YouTube Shining Hero Marauder EX is revisiting SF3 for a full play through. Be sure to look for it in the coming weeks on his channel.

I hope you enjoy the new version! Shining Force III has never looked better!

Please continue to report any issues you may have in the threads designated for each scenario in the forum.
