ISO rebalancing patch for Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya
Post Posted: Thu Feb 13, 2020 2:49 am
I found this interesting detail on Wikipedia yesterday:

The North American release of Shining Force Gaiden II made drastic alterations to the spells Blaze level 3 and Freeze level 3, more than doubling the damage they inflict while increasing the radius of their effect from two to three squares. This results in mage characters being overpowered compared to other playable characters. Enemies with level 3 magic are also overpowered, as any one of them can kill several characters at full health in a single move.

It got me wondering how hard it would be to patch the English rom of Shining Force Gaiden II (aka: Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya) to restore the original damage and effect radius of those two spells. I wouldn't even know where to begin to do something like this myself, so I thought I'd see if it's the kind of thing someone here might be interested in taking a stab at. What do you guys think?
