Hello everyone,

Red Moon Lost Days



Red Moon: Lost Days is a RPG/visual novel hybrid developed for the Sega Saturn about Kyou Tan Wa, a pilot who after lost contact with a Army General friend, sets out on a journey to Egypt to investigate his disappearance.

Nineteen years have passed, but the shadow of the Great War is still upon the world. On February 28, 2019, the 3th world war began. The war was between China and the United States of America. A series of sanctions imposed by US ignited this war. Eventually, including a total ban on trade between China-backed countries. A feature of the Great War was the use of war robots, pilot operated biped machines, the Metal Knights. When China won the war, the world changed. For good.

China now called Great China became a union of republics. Consolidating itself as the largest economy. After that, Great China has establish a system to remain militarily stately.

Hacks, Patches, and Translations submission:
My hardmode hack of Shining the holy ark:
Didn't really know what to call it.
Besides being a much harder version of the game, it does make unused items obtainable,changes treasure and shops, changes some monster spawns/drops, fixes some minor bugs,unlocks sound test, and unlocks some shortcuts on the world map adding one as well. It also allows monsters to have different stats depending on the area they are found in. This mod is mainly for people who played the game before, love the game, and want a different experience playing.

Bin.cue download
Also includes save files for the SSF emulator at the beginning (right after the initial long dialog to gameplay in Desire mine) and middle of the game (Mountain cave). I don't actually know what to show off since the game at a glance doesn't look much different. Also includes notes about various changes.
This is where you normally find it: Updated to version 3.45:Shining the holy ark more than just hardmode mod v2 - Shining Force Central



Utilities submission:
All my shining force 3 tools:
Several programs to edit certain files in all shining force 3's scenarios. Another program that generates asm code to assist in editing.

Shining force 3 tools download
Has readmes in them. Most of them require .net framework. One requires java jre 16 or higher. They are a bit hard to use, but they function.
This is where you normally find these: SF3 file Editors - Shining Force Central
