Unused Graphics

All these unused graphics can also be found in the JP version of Ys II DS. Just remove \ys2\files from the search.

Portraits

Located in \root\ys2\files\shop. Darm's portrait is never shown and Lilia's portraits have final versions that are much cleaner and do not look dithered.

Shops

Located in \root\ys2\files\shop, they all appear to be rough, zoomed-out and somewhat pixelated versions of the original shop portraits used in the Eternal-version. The final versions are much cleaner and zoomed up to better see the people's faces.
