Hey everyone, this almost seems kind of creepy, but I've known about and have visited the seikens forums for a couple of years now. Just decided to make an account... I almost feel like a stalker, haha. Couldn't resist the urge to put my two cents into the SD Discussion board, so I decided to take 5...

Ahhh, I'll try that with a Kevin, Carlie, Riesz play through. Despite how many hours I've clocked into this game, I've never completed their story arc. Unless Riesz has to be the main character, in which case that's kind of a bummer, haha. I like to keep the two characters that share an arc together...

Haha, I guess I made it sound like his only reasons was to save Jessica, I know there were other more pressing matters. I kind of condensed my last post because I tend to get too wordy. But you pretty much summed up what I was thinking very well. But again, the reason I don't rave about pairing is b...

Charlotte? Never even crossed my mind. She might be 15, but she is still the cute little girl who lives in Wendel. O_O On another note, I don't often rave about romance in games, but it seemed to me that Jessica and Hawk had something more than Hawk and Riesz. Not to say there wasn't something betwe...

I just noticed that Iffish run away and for some reason become skeletons fish when they are low on health. Hard to explain, haha. Like their body turns into just a fish spine.

Well, every opinion has an argument I suppose. Despite it being confirmed that SwoM takes place not long after CoM, Nick brings up an interesting point. I suppose you can't cover everything when making Mana games. But if they really were so close together than the characters of CoM should be more pr...

Hm, I had a pretty good play through with Hawkeye - Rogue, Lise - Starlancer, and Duran - Swordmaster. I've been partial to Rogue for a while, his traps are fun and a unique trait to that class, they are fast casts and you can lightly exploit elements. Lise's full party buffs were always a plus, she...

That is true, and I haven't put the thought of historical events into the CoM and SwoM relation. The reoccurring names could either just be semantics (as square loves those reoccurring names,) or with the very quote from the beginning of SoM, "But time flows like a river... and history repeats." It ...

I think Abdul's time line seems the most likely, should there be a linear time line. It would be easiest to measure how far in the future one game compared to another is by how big a part Mana plays in the world. By SoM Mana is all but forgotten, any artifacts or ruins are written off as legends or ...

Especially with the sudden fluctuation of mana over the years, as we can tell from the games, Mana isn't exactly a stable energy source. There is no telling what possible effects this could have on the world itself. Hell, with that explanation one could link all mana games together, for now the two ...

Is this a simple skin hack, or is it a complete skill/stat revamp? It's obvious in some of your videos you replaced Duran with Guren, but obviously Guren would not be swinging around a sword and using sword techs. So as far as fighting, and skills/magic, have you reset whatever character used for Gu...

The biggest problem seems to be a lack of sprite animations. Plus there would be an issue with the entire story and game mechanics themselves XD. Other than that, this is probably one of the coolest things I've seen in regards to game hacking. PS. It must be hard to sleep when you are in the process...

It seems that if you invert the SoM map it almost perfectly fits with the SD3 map. Assuming water levels have risen over the past thousands of years. Northtown and the Empire would be around Peden, cleared out the forest a bit. Southtown is just a little deeper into the former Forest of Illusion. Ka...
