Close to the end here, it was nice to re-experience this one... but I think maybe the mastery here was a little too breezy.
WanderingHeiho 1 Jun 2023 00:38
Mastery #306: While I'm not the biggest fan of tactical RPGs, mostly from my lack of playing them, this is one that stays in my heart. Thanks for the set.
mymowo 26 Sep 2023 21:42
Played this game all the way through before discovering Retroachievements, and proceeding to load a bunch of other games and get achievements for them retroactively. But, for some reason, my US version of the ROM is not recognized? Which version of Shining Force is required for this set to work?
Sines 26 Sep 2023 21:44
You can check which files are compatible in the "Supported Game Files" section, on the top right jut below the boxart.
mymowo 26 Sep 2023 21:51
Had similar problems with Shining Force III, which I also played. For that game, there is a specific version of the translation that must be used....I wish there were a tag for ROM version on the root page for games on Retroachievements, so I don't have to go digging through the forum each time.
mymowo 26 Sep 2023 21:52
(EDIT) Thanks Sines, I must be blind!
mymowo 26 Sep 2023 21:54
In my defence, most of the UI disappears when u window your browser
Griseo 11 Nov 2023 02:23
I agree that this set is desperately in need of a rescore. I can't even imagine touching this knowing it's 23+ hours long for only 314 points, knowing that other games are much shorter that are worth more. I liked Shining Force growing up, but it's a hard sell for me who, like a lot of us here, base what we play on the amount of points we can get from it.
Kontan 15 Nov 2023 16:19
Hello,
the supported file for SF (USA) hash 5111aa25931e6789ce4972bc6bafaa04 dont work, i get the massage "game could not be identified" is there any solution for my problem? :(
Chackran 16 Dec 2023 22:18
The only Rom version that could be recognized by RetroArch is the japanese one. Isn't there a way for it to recognize any of the English ones? Why does this happen?
StonyPony 20 Dec 2023 04:21
The correct one is a ripped ROM that is not optimized. Why they selected that one, IDK... it's a problem because a good rip will not work from cartridge: you have to KNOW you're looking for (I think an overdump) and only one in like 6 sites seems to have it.
Chackran 20 Dec 2023 22:16
I just gave in and started playing the japanese version. So far so good, and for the things I don't remember or didn't know like the hidden items/characters, I just look them up. But yeah it sucks that not many ROMS are available
StonyPony 21 Dec 2023 03:25
If you want to inbox me, I can try to help you out with knowing which rom is right
Chackran 21 Dec 2023 19:39
That won't be necessary, I just mastered it. But thank you anyways tho. Maybe someone else will need your help when they want to play this game, isn't it possible to post it on the forum which ROMS are the ones that work?
BiggsBiggsby 26 Dec 2023 06:21
Can someone explain why some of the promotions are missable?
Sines 26 Dec 2023 09:04
Same reason some character are missables.
BiggsBiggsby 26 Dec 2023 22:54
Damn that was a derp moment
lexlex 11 Jan 2024 20:07
qual versão desse jogo o RA Reconhece o sistema de consquistas alguem sabe dizer to testando varias mais nelhum aceita ?
StonyPony 12 Jan 2024 19:34
Chackran, it is under "Supported Game Files", under the game box art on the right for each game.

Can we add the Steam uncompressed rom to the Valid Checksums? For those who don't know if you purchase any of the Mega Drive / Genisis games on steam, they give you the uncompressed rom in the data files in a folder under "Uncompressed roms" so it isnt a mistake.

I think having a valid legal checksum would be a good idea.
