Also known as Shining Force III: Target: Child of God, this sequel oddly feels like what the original Shining Force III should have been. It stars the 3rd Prince in line to the throne, Medion with his even smaller(and somewhat quirkier) force of soldiers as he tries to evade fellow Empire soldiers, masked satanic cultists, and Republic traitors on his way to rescue his father, the King of Destonia and ultimately stop the Mad Governor Garvin's schemes.

Debug Mode

Hmmm...
To do:
Event flags, battle debug, etc.

Use 360238EE 0001(1.003) or 3602389E 0001(2.000) depending on the version of the game to activate a debug mode. It's functions are a bit different to Scenario 1's:

Name Explanation
Scn Area Warp - select the map where you wish to go, hit A then close the menu. The second option chooses what exit you spawn from, or in battle, what cutscenes play. In some maps setting it to -1 allows you to spawn out of bounds.
Flg Sets event flags.
Prm Roster editor. Add or remove characters, what team they're in, skill lvs, and their levels or classes.
Itm Gives you any item in the game, provided you still have space. There is also an option for Max Gold.
Sav Saves file
Lod Loads a save file
Snd Sound Test
12P What this does is unknown, currently, selecting it just refreshes the menu.
Cfg The normal Configuration menu

Controls

Pressing X+Y+Z together will pause the game. In this mode, pressing any button other than L, R, or Start will advance the game 1 frame, pressing L will enable some printout information and R will disable. To exit, Press the Start button. Holding Z will disable collision, allowing you to cross out of bounds. In battle, if you hold Z while an enemy or character ends their turn, the battle instantly ends, or instead you can kill specific characters/enemies by holding Start while ending their turn. Finally, pressing R during a cutscene will skip dialogue, and L will disable it. Pressing it multiple times can advance through scenes slightly faster, though this will crash the game on certain scenes.

Controlling Enemies

If the bit 0128-6 in Flg is set, you will now be given control of enemies during battle.

Fight Menu

Setting 0128-0 in Flg will enable a fight menu, with extra options, they are as follows:

  • CNO - Unknown, cannot be manually changed.
  • ACT - For Scenario 2 the options are: FIT, FAR(Seems to crash the game when used), EQI, ITM AND MAG
  • NO - Goes from 0-101, it's use depends on what ACT you selected. IE, what spell the character uses if you select magic.
  • LV - Level of attack, likely only for Spells.
  • HIT - NRML, S--H, N--H, SUKA(Guard), and CRTC
  • KAI - Unknown
  • HAN - Unknown
  • D - Strangely, although they added a 4th D, the functionality of all but 1 appears to have been removed. Setting these to the highest value doesn't appear to add an extra damage step. D1 appears to pull names from RAM(e.g. Setting to 20 while attacking with an enemy will say Medion took damage, 21 for Campbell, etc) though setting it to an invalid name(i.e. One of the PC placeholders) will crash the game.

Debug Flags

Using the Flg option it is possible to enable extra debug functions, format is "Address-Bit" and they are as follows:
0108-2 - window layer disabled
0108-7 - sprites disabled
0110-0 - Slow mode
0110-3 - Disables the backgound layer
0130-0 - Hitbox display (Overlays a wireframe around collision.)
0130-3 - Camera Tilting or alternatively, Drunk Mode

Hidden Objects

  • Airo Village

SF3SC2AIRO.png
Behind Airo Village is a functional bridge and a few textures and sprites.

Chickens2SF3SC2.png
Inside this pen is chickens that can't normally be talked to.

  • Storich Business District

SF3SC2hiddenstorich.png
Placed way out of bounds is this lone Conductor.

  • Waterfall graphic

Hidden behind the game's waterfall is this small texture. The letters appear almost illegible, thus far the only thing that can be made out is "た__"

Unused Characters


There three additional unused characters buried in the game called グラツア, パピィ, and スピリテット. The first one is Gracia, while the last one appears to be a mispelled Spiriel(スピリテッド vs スピリテット), and the middle is unknown, it doesn't even show up in Scenario 3. They all use a placeholder icon, and have no stats. The fan translation edits the latter two out to "Rogan"(another unused character) and "Edmund" respectively.

  • Two Julians

Being a returning character from scenario 1, you'd think Julian would occupy the same Character slot(or CNO as the game calls it) as that game, but that's not the case in Scenario 2. For some inexplicable reason, the one the game uses is indexed next to Donhort, which the original is horribly broken, and will crash the game if used in battle. Even outside of battle if the character is in your team it breaks the Status page, adding loads of garbage Playable characters to the page.

Unused Classes

In addition to the 6 3rd promotional classes from Scenario 1(The Summoner Hedva uses is a different entry), another 6 base level promotions go completely unused. It's not known at all what the first three could've been used for, though they oddly sound as if they could fit the characters Ratchet, Frank, and Hagane/Murasame respectively(though it's just as likely these were also intended for cut characters.). The other half however also fit well with the characters Robbie, Jade and Pappets, who all join in the later half of the game.

Even stranger, all six of these are removed in Scenario 3, leaving very conspicuous "Reserve" gaps.

Unused Enemies

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Finish Scenario 1 leftovers section.
  • Rewrite the entries as needed.
  • Then go through Enemy entries, sprites and walkthroughs to see what else doesn't get called.
  • Long shot, but try and find a way to call these enemies in battle, though it's likely the game would just crash.

Buried in the game are a slew of unused enemy entries all of which still have model files present, though most had their contents dummied out. An unusual amount of these are from previous Shining Force games. They follow X8PC[###].BIN(### being the values below) Note:Number is for the Model IDs. To get the Sprite IDs, subtract 500 from the Model ID(For example: Sara Sldr's Sprite set is 201)

Unused Items

Hmmm...
To do:
* Finish adding the rest of the items
  • Recheck specials, AGAIN
  • Is ケイロン a character from previous games? All i can come up with is a character from Shining Tears, which can't possibly be related.

Using the in-game debug, it is possible to place any item in the game in your character's inventory. The Ninja Katanas are actually used now, and NOT SET was removed as all 255 slots in the game now contain items, but unused items from the first game are still present.

Unused Spells

All of the spells from the first game return, most are just as unused, but not altogether unchanged. Some that did not work in the previous game now seem to have more functionality here. For English names and descriptions, the Fan Translation will be now be used for parity. To view these spells, write the following values to address 0x6034094. This will replace Medion's Return spell with the target, and as for the spell's level, write 01-04 to address 0x6034095. You may need to add MP before attempting some of these, though this can be done via adding/using bright honey consumables through the Debug menu. Note that the fan translation is used for completeness, but names and descriptions often don't line up, the differences will be noted whereever possible.

Items/Enemy Attacks

Hmmm...
To do:
Add Japanese text.

Each item in the game, and certain enemy attacks are considered Spells internally, though it seems they were commented out. Attempting to load the ID results in it being set to 00(???/?????) in battle, though the descriptions for these can still be seen through the Status Menu, under Magic. It is possible *Orb was suppose to be broken the same way, though the unique description suggests otherwise.

Values Image Name Notes
00 SF3mtest.png (寸法テスト) (Measurement Test) Unchanged from Scenario 1, still just a door texture and a 25x25 floor pattern.
01 SF3Stest2.png (店テスト) (Store Test) Essentially a test of the shops, church, HQ and new Bookshelf function. The Fan Translation leaves it untranslated, but is otherwise functional.
2C & 2D SF3SC2Untranslated.png ?(?) At the very end of the battle maps are a pair of placeholders. Entering either one takes you to a broken duplicate of the Hero test's bottom floor. The internal name for these are "BTL238" & "BTL239", suggesting the game was originally intended to be longer than it ended up being.
C4 SF3SC2Sewer.png 盗賊マップ (Unused Sewer Level) The file name is TEST01.MPD Storich. Japanese version oddly shares it's name with the next entry, suggesting this was also a ruins map.
C5 SC3RuinsSF3SC2.png 盗賊マップ (Scenario 3 Chapter 3 Ruins) The fan translation more or less describes it perfectly, though the actual name appears to be more generic.
CB, CC, CD SF3SC2Town.png 上尾, ホァの町, 魔法遺跡 (Town 1, Town 2, Town 3) All three load into the same map file, a barely started town similar in style to Storich Business District. However, only the second entry mentions a town. The first appears to be "Ageo", the name of a japanese city, while the third oddly appears to be another ruin map. The Scn menu in debug also calls them "AGEO3", "HOR", and "MGC_I" respectively. These generally refer to file names, but the only file of the three present on the disc is HOR.MPD.
N/A SF3SC2Field.png FIELD.MPD Back again from Scenario 1, with a more recent modification date than in that game. collision is a bit more broken, and now the sea appears to be separated from the land, making it appear as if the land floating.
N/A SF3SC2Line.png LINE.MPD Scenario 1 leftover.

Version differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Figure out changes

Two versions of the game are known to exist, labeled 1.003 and 2.000 internally.
