Shining Force - Hard Mode & AI Improvements

This mod reworks every battle encounter in the game, making the game more difficult, and improving the monster AI.

The mod also features a few additional items and abilities, both for you and the monsters.

The Force is also significantly rebalanced.

To see a more thorough list of changes, visit my website:

INSTALL NOTE: Mods currently do not work with the Simple Launcher. Subscribe to the mod, then launch the game room normally, click Games Library, click Mod and finally, select this mod from the list.

If you want the version with all characters unlocked from the start, go here:

AI Changes

In the normal Shining Force, many monsters have AI which will make them stand there and take a beating.

This mod fixes that. Monsters are more aggressive and will gun for you when you are 3 squares away.

New Items

There are 7 new weapons to discover, new rings and a new healing item for the late game.

New Abilities

Most Centaurs now gain a CHARGE ability, letting them attack from afar even with a lance a few times per battle.

Archers gain SNIPE, which lets them target enemies from 3 to 6 squares away.

Bleu learns a single target FROST ability, and ZYLO gains a 5-square SWIPE ability.

Monsters also have access to a few unique abilities of their own.

30 Reworked Battle

All 30 battles have been reworked completely to provide a fresh, harder experience, with smarter AI.

Expect new enemy variations and equipments, as well as much more challenging boss battles.

Monsters often come with different equipment, and all their stats have been rebalanced. Make sure to analyze them before attacking!

General Changes

-Fixed Land Effect
-Automatic Item Passing
-Can see CRIT in STATUS
-Items have a 100% chance of breaking instead of 25%
-Poison does 15% of your maximum health in damage instead of a fixed 2
-Attacks do between 70% and 130% of their damage (normal values are between 80%/120%)
-The AI prioritizes your Hero (Max) less than usual

Thanks to...
rubixcuber, the creator of the Shining Force editor. Everything was possible because of him.

Known Bugs
Unused Spell Icons are distorted. I've failed to fix it but fortunately, the bug is completely harmless.
