Q: Game saves?

Did you accidentally delete your saved game in Shining Force 2? Do you want to skip certain parts of the game? Do you want to search for specific game sprites to capture? Whatever the case may be, these game saves are here to save the day. ^_^

Q: What are these?

These are periodical saves for Shining Force 2. Each zip file contains two types of files: (1) an SRM file (stands for saved RAM), which should be compatible with any Genesis emulator, and (2) a GS0 save state file, which works only with “Kega Fusion” and “Gens”.

You have Two Options!

Each zip file contains two different saves:

• “shiningforce2.gs0” - These are my saves. Consider it a casual gameplay session. I only cared to level up my preferred selection of characters. And the characters I did choose to keep were level-grinded well to make every battle a breeze. Stat boosters were used.

• “shiningforce2-mxc.gs0” - These saves were captured by Keegan McCarthy, also known as MXC at the Shining Force Central forums. His collection of saves have all characters leveled up, except for Creed's extra three characters. No stat boosters were used. All character names were changed to not be in all caps for easier reading. As a bonus, at Battle 19 the Pegasus Wings were edited in for Rick.
