Seiken Densetsu 3 / Trials of Mana - Less EXP Requirement

Hack of Seiken Densetsu 3

Description:

Seiken Densetsu 3 / Trials of Mana – Less EXP Requirement

v1.2, by hmsong

Seiken Densetsu 3 required a LOT of grinding for level up (esp the mid parts of the game). In fact, most of the time, it was required for you to just run through the dungeon without fighting and get to the next parts of the plot, just so you can grind a bit faster. And even then, the process of grinding for EXP was long and painful, because the EXP requirement was so much.

This patch makes it so that the required EXP for level up is more reasonable. Specifically, up to Lv54, the required EXP for each level up is less than the original game (as much as ~1500 EXP). However, from Lv55 and on, the required EXP for each level up is more than the original game (as much as ~1500 EXP). By that time though, that’s just 1~2 more enemies. Eventually, by Lv99 (if you ever get there), the total EXP requirement would be the same as the original.

However, because you grind less for the same level, that means you will ultimately end up with less money at the same level. So, in order to offset the difference, many enemies will now drop slightly more money. Hopefully, this will be enough to make the necessary difference.

Applying Notes:

  • This is specifically for No Header ROM. If you only have a Headered ROM, then you can use TUSH (https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/608/) to remove the header.
  • Compatible with the English NCorlett-translation patch. But again, you need a Unheadered ROM. If you are using the translation patch from Romhacking.net, then you need to apply the translation to a Headered ROM first, then use TUSH to remove the header. And then you can apply these patches.
  • Compatible with the new Trials of Mana ROM, released in 2019. But again, you need a Unheadered ROM.

There are other hacks for Seiken Densetsu 3 that you should check out:

Sin of Mana

  • http://ngplus.net/index.php?/files/file/28-seiken-densetsu-3-sin-of-mana/
  • This changes the contents of the game in many ways, such as equipment bonus, level-up change, class balance, difficulty, boss behaviors, running in battles, MP regeneration, dungeon format, and tons of bug fixes. It’s a completely new game though, since so much has changed, and the game progress is slightly different.
  • There is also a forum (google “Sin of Mana forum”), where you can ask the creator (praetarius5018) numerous questions. He is very helpful, and even helps you to create your own hack. He certainly did for me.
  • Sin of Mana is NOT compatible with the new Trials of Mana.
  • Sin of Mana is NOT compatible with hmsong’s patches.

Please leave comments or reviews. This would give the creator ideas on what is good or not, and depending on the situation, even revise the patches.

If you have any questions or find errors, please PM hmsong on Romhacking.net (click the name, then click the name next to “Forum Account”, then click “Send PM”).
