  1. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    v7.4 lowers Peryton enemy's hp and ups the agility some. I had set its health higher and agility down cause there's always only that enemy type in the Hermitage dungeon. However these enemies cast defense spells so they go well with the default health multiplier for the story enemies. With this change they're insta'd with perfect Bright Crimes when their Barrier is up.
  2. Hello NGPlus community, I am happy to say I have finally finished working on my Hardtype for Shadow Hearts: Covenant. This one is called "Godslayer". It's been a project with lots of changes over the years. To know more details you can read the messages on this thread or leave a question. I'll be more than happy to answer them. I will possibly make full list of changes at some point or I won't. I hope you will enjoy this mod. This mod is for the NTSC version of the game. I'm not sure if it works in PAL version (probably not). Use PPF-O-Matic to patch your original disc images with the zip's PPF files. Also make sure to make backups of the original images. Here's the download link for the mod. This is the most complete version of the mod. Check out my description of what was changed for this in my newest message on this thread. http://www.mediafire.com/file/kz82crpmur6nqwh/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.4.zip _______________________________________________________________________________ Here are the previous versions if you wanna try them out: http://www.mediafire.com/file/v5tzcrejwcsfah7/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.35.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/u5zjelhpd9odaui/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.3.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/k1mm12tn16e2n1y/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.25.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/f65y9g25gsaplyz/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.2.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/citysu5crfxwc1s/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.15.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/u2116b2raek83gn/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.1.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/jtkg0uhxbcg7iqf/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v7.0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/soqsig1kanesg8b/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v6.50.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/xmj09aekjzlrg4m/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v6.05.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/81ku3njybp6z9ej/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v6.0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/wrchwh6n8z8g0m9/shc_ntsc_godslayer_5.0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/474p08uwbmbmvcm/shc_ntsc_godslayer_4.1.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/ss331qh92q7r430/shc_ntsc_godslayer_4_0.7z http://www.mediafire.com/file/12wxjhbqy8t10nv/shc_ntsc_godslayer_3_33.7z http://www.mediafire.com/file/87efruu9nv3dsws/shc_ntsc_godslayer_v3.0.7z http://www.mediafire.com/file/b5pydcf299wxydi/shc_ntsc_godslayer_2.55.7z http://www.mediafire.com/file/a114iy67r7fc7ea/shc_ntsc_godslayer_2.5.7z http://www.mediafire.com/file/3zikj6pu0b2pp8h/shc_ntsc_godslayer_2.1.7z http://www.mediafire.com/file/166nky22t170yrh/shc_ntsc_godslayer_2.0.7z https://www.mediafire.com/file/3rok98jrzuxwasl/SHC_NTSC_GODSLAYER_v1.0.7z
  3. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    I guess Amon needed a slight reform afterall. v7.35 lowers Amon's magic so it hits for less than half health with The End if Barrier is in place. To compensate the lowering he gains a bit more speed. Most things should be right in this mod but there might be some little changes here and there and I'm gonna always upload new version of the mod right away since my life is uncertain right now.
  4. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    Wrestling update. This should be last one in a while. Great Question goes with slightly higher str and bit slower agl. Great Gama 3 str down and agl up. So the 3rd fight is a speedy boi. He's meant to be done after the Koshoki and Shoki ordeals in Nihonbashi when also Eleanor bout becomes available. This should complete the Gama saga for the time being.
  5. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    Back again with small update. v7.25 decreases Petrograd's alien wolf's speed since I thought it was a bit too fast and also increases its attack and magic cause I tested the wolf with worse armor instead of that one you get from Goreme Valley. Dumb me. Another change is that Great Gama 2 is meant to be done after collecting Cure Plus magic from Goreme. His speed goes down but strength goes up to create slightly different experience from the 1st fight. I need to work my way to Gama 3 cause in my save I don't have Cure All and there's no way to go back at that point. It's no biggie though cause he also goes with the stats he has rn.
  6. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    I'm sorry for bombarding with these patches but the island needs a lot of attention and I gotta get this right cause there probably won't be new updates in a while. v7.2 simply lowers Stray Wolf's magic to same multiplier as the other enemies. There! It's done.
  7. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    v7.15 is another mini update that ups St. Marguerite Island foes hp a bit to compensate for going with slightly lower strength multiplier. Wolf random encounters hp remains the same cause their str multiplier is a bit higher.
  8. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    v7.1 is smol update that will make the wolves in St. Marguerite stronger (random encounter wolves and the 2 bosses). That is a special dungeon where I had to set the strength of enemies lower cause dev had set them higher than usual for some reason. I also had lowered the wolves stats which wasn't necessary so this is a fix to that.
  9. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    Hello there, big update here. v7.0 has lots of changes that make this mod better. I try to summarize in nutshell: - Semi-tank random encounter enemies gain hp and agility due to there being max 3 of them in battle. I did the same thing to the full tank enemies in previous update. With this change full tanks still have more health and agility thanks to there being max 2 of them in battle at the same time. - Soul power gains rebalanced with disc 1 enemies generally granting more while disc 2 foes much less. With this change you will have more soul power at the end of disc 1 than before and less in endgame. - Wolf Bout enemies are now different from one another based on their personality and background. So different buffs work better in different fights. - Exp and cash amounts rebalanced. Now all dungeons from Wine Cellar to Queen's Garden go with 2x exp. Optional dungeons give exponentially more exp with the right order to do them being Tiffauges Castle -> Dollhouse -> Black Forest -> Dog Shrine -> Neam Ruins Underground. Final dungeon goes with 4x exp and increased soul power. All semi and full tanks give 1.5x the exp multiplier amount of cash. So if exp is 2x the cash amount is x3. - Bosses and wolves hp increased a bit so they don't go down too fast. Also random encounter enemies agility increased by some on disc 2. - The accidental sell prevention of unpurchasable weapons, armors, items and accessories is better now with only hit area and strike area expands being sellable. I'm confident with this working out that's why I'm releasing this now even though I haven't tested all the way yet. I'll make possible changes in the future as I go along with my playthrough.
  10. Small patch so I can sleep at night while this game is on hiatus while I'm bettering my Covenant mod. v3.65 is random encounter enemies Soul Power patch which makes squishy enemies drop less soul, semi tank enemies more and full tank enemies the same amount with few exceptions. You will gain a bit more soul power in early game while significantly less in late compared to my previous versions. I'm working on change like this in Covenant too since it feels early game lacks that and in late there's too much when you don't even need it anymore. Actually I'm starting with the correct soul amounts right from the beginning while in both SH2 and SH3 the game starts with the right amounts kinda late. Edit: forgot to mention I also changed the final dungeon exp, cash & soul amounts. Now final dungeon enemies grant 5 x exp 5 x soul and 7.5 x cash. Basically exp and cash go up a bit while soul becomes 5 when it was 7 previously. Janus enemy exp & cash goes down a bit and soul power is 75 now when it was 120 previously. Also Purgatory enemies soul amounts were altered with 6 x soul becomes 4 12 x becomes 8 and 18 x becomes 12.
  11. Hi NGPlus community. It's me again with another difficulty modification. This hard mod is called "Grace" and it's for the NTSC-U version of Shadow Hearts: From the New World. This mod ups enemies' HP, Str, Mag and Agl values. You'll need to be higher level than normal in order to progress in the game. You will receive more Exp, Cash and Soul power to help in that. In order to beat the game it's recommended to do all possible sidequests. Sidequests are suggested to do at around lvl 60. When you have done all sidequests you should be around 72 levelled. After that it's final dungeon time. Final boss is suggested to be fought at lvl 77 the earliest but the benefits between lvl 77 and lvl 99 aren't that great. You can level up further if you feel it's too hard but it can definitely be done 77 levelled even if you don't use any Seals. v3.65 has everything modded including the Purgatory special dungeon. Yes, it's finally done! Basically you need to play through the game once in order to get there since you need to take Snaps of the final boss. Purgatory is suggested to be entered around 77 levelled or a bit earlier and it's recommended to be lvl99 at the Purgatory finale. To use this mod you need to patch your game image with the one from the zip file using "ppf-o-matic" tool. I hope you will like this mod. If you have any questions about anything that has to do with it or just want to discuss it go ahead and comment, I will be here. Here's the download link for the mod: http://www.mediafire.com/file/6ymb3olorauqw73/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_65.zip These are the outdated versions but I will include them here anyway: http://www.mediafire.com/file/kumslgzmzp94d3a/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_6.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/756kzem83eeaq2k/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_55.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/qt1m09yez098qzr/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_5.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/31ttdxqmwydz3sp/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_45.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/dyvcw4f9byict21/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_4.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/siuqwr3c2p85dn2/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_3.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/qxbrtoo1om4w5qt/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_3_0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/o8x8zata9dbl5by/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_2_5.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/90ho6rce18uiwyr/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_2_1.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/scmmrcq37uvrh85/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_2_0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/blwimlxpba4uorb/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_3.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/ks4gn37thtwcehv/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_2.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/z3vz3v0jpszg43b/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_1.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/0w80mq96ehc8fko/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_0.zip
  12. Shadow Hearts: Covenant NTSC - Godslayer v7.4

    Hello NG+. I have started working on better version of this Covenant mod that will have improvements that should make the mod even better. Here are some things I'm gonna change: - Add more health and agility to the "semi tank" random encounter enemies. This is kinda the same treatment I made to the full tank enemies in previous update. They won't have as high health and agility as full tanks since there can be 3 of them in battle max where the limit for full tanks is 2. Semi tanks and full tanks will give 1.5 x more cash and a bit more soul power. On disc 1 you'll be able to level fusions more thanks to the soul increase. On disc 2 all enemies will give slightly less soul power so you'll end up with less soul than before in endgame. - Make wolf bout foes more personalized with stats based on their background. Idk why I made all wolves follow the same formula all these years. But this will change in the coming patch. There might be other changes too but these are on my mind atm. I know I'm slow and I apologize for that. But I'm trying to make these mods as good as I can. I'll continue with the rest of Shadow Hearts 3 after I've finished with Covenant. I have no estimate on when I get this released. I got hard times in life here and there but I try to focus on this whenever I can. Thanks for playing through my mods btw, that means a lot to me!
  13. Small yet important patch: v3.6 ups the potent of Cure Plus stellar magic. The spell power is upped from 150 to 225. With this change it heals slightly more than Thera Roots the moment you get it. Shania's Cure Plus is still alpha with the spell power of 250. Idk why they made Cure Plus stellar so weak, but it's fixed now. There are positives to using Thera Roots too since they give more turns so it's good like this. I'm currently leveling to 64 in Natan's dungeon to face the boss and everything seems good so far.
  14. Small patch: v3.55 ups Ninja village enemies agility by some and lowers Sushi house foes agility. With this change the 1st part of Sushi house (5 battles) are doable at the start of sidequests at around lvl 60. When it comes to the battles after that it's suggested to level up a bit further. Ninja village is suggested to do at the end of sidequests at around lvl 72. These are calculated changes and I still need to to finish the other optional dungeons to get 100% confirmation.
  15. Another really small update: v3.5 ups Daoros & Killer's agility and magic. Idk why I had their speed set so low before. That's exception boss cause they're fighting together. Most other bosses should be fine. Malice Killer needs more buffing since I'm planning to make him beatable only after the optional dungeons. For now he remains beatable right after Garland Residence. After I've gone thru the sidequests I'll set his stats higher in new patch.
  16. v3.45 is a small update which modifies Delget's stats (the boss in Aito Cave). He now has increased strength and magic but his speed is lower. This makes the Pitfight where you need to kill him in less than 3 turns manageable (wow such progress). It also creates variety when you have beast that is extra strong. His lower speed also fits the scene just before the boss. Also he is one big boy so he needs the power. I may be updating this mod even if I see only small misses instead of waiting for large chunk of changes. I think it's better that way.
  17. Another small update that I forgot to do with v3.3. v3.4 slightly increases final dungeon enemies hp and exp, cash and soul power. With this change they have more health than the last optional dungeon monsters and they're also worth more. Janus remains the same he was in v3.3.
  18. Back again with new version of the mod. In v3.3 everything has been tested except few bosses that I suspect to be correct anyway. Final dungeon enemies power was increased and the Janus enemy that always appears alone was made a dangerous mini boss that gives more exp, cash and soul power compared to the rest of the monsters. All Purgatory enemies have now been modded to give more exp, cash and soul power. All of the values have been checked in code to be correct. All that remains now is the Covenant mod treatment, making unpurchasable items weapons amors and accessories unsellable. Also I'll be checking the few remaining bosses as I go along with my playthrough.
  19. Back so soon huh? I felt bad for making ppl wait so I released version 3.0 which in itself is not 100% tested yet but most things should be exactly how I want them to be. Almost all bosses have been tested and random encounter enemies are like they should be. The enemies give more cash and soul power compared to the exp multiplier but still not too much so optimality is rewarded while playing. If you play through the Purgatory dungeon in this version I recommend going through the doors in this order: Dark, Earth, Light, Water, Wind, Fire. In this order the enemies give more exp cash and soul like they're meant to. I'll be changing the rest of the Purgatory enemies for next version along with other possible changes. Thanks and see ya!
  20. Hello people, I don't know if there are anyone interested in this mod anymore but I've been working on the new version for long time and it gets better everyday. I've had to start over couple of times when I've had new realisations but it's going forward everytime I work on it. It's looking really good at this point but I'll still have to run through it to make sure everything works well. The new version is probably gonna have survival elements when it comes to cash and soul power and the more optimized gameplay will lead to better results. both random encounters and bosses should provide good challenge while grinding doesn't feel like a chore since I've made sure there's not too much of it like in the incomplete version i released before. I can't give any deadline but I'm working on the mod approx 1 hour everyday.
  21. Shadow Hearts NTSC-U - Imbroglio v3.20

    Thanks for playing through my Covenant mod! All the best for the new year for you and the rest of the community! <3
  22. Hello and welcome! This is my difficulty modification for the first Shadow Hearts I named 'Imbroglio'. It changes enemies making them have more health, agility, strength and magic. In addition there's been changes to different character abilities. Also, characters learn their 3 last skills way later (when Alice learned 'Arc' before at 35 levelled now she learns it 70 levelled instead). NOTE: I lowered the required level for the 3 last character abilities starting with v1.1. From there on Alice learns Arc 63 levelled (level requirements are x 1.8 of the original). The mod is currently v3.20 with lots of different changes. See the other messages on this thread where I have listed changes. In this mod you are required to be higher level than before in order to progress in the game. Increased experience and cash from enemies will help in that. You have better chances at the final boss the higher level you are and the more sidequests you have completed. It is recommended to do the final boss maxed out (99 lvl). I wasn't able to find the values for the scaling enemies from the code so those remain unchanged unless some helpful person will be able to help me in that. Fortunately those are only the Fusion battles and the Malice lowering battles (and also the scaled Fox Face if you dare facing him). Give my mod a go if you feel like it. You need to have the original disc image of Shadow Hearts NTSC-U. Then patch that image with the file from the zip using 'ppf-o-matic' tool. Here's the download link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/pjgt3ituu7und2q/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_3.20.zip ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Here are the previous versions if you want to try these instead, however the newer version is improved. http://www.mediafire.com/file/segzg7cpdte0am8/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_3.15.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/9tgdrwzeh75syoc/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_3.1.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/bco0n5alyhfjdco/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_3.0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/kcgc88ahhvqb65p/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_2.0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/b4i3qdspqr3bypd/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_1.3.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/qkbhz4zgzzsmvcb/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_1.2.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/4aku2ftbd7dvdm8/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_1.1.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/see5y0jrhxgjsr8/shadow_hearts_ntsc-u_imbroglio_1_0.zip
  23. Shadow Hearts NTSC-U - Imbroglio v3.20

    Sorry for another quick reply. I looked up the items of Shadow Hearts and it's only the Silver Hand that kills it all making user hit everytime. The other applied things only work so efficiently cause you hit everytime using that item. I might change that item's name and make it give mana for all party members for example. I'm sorry for being so clumsy and realizing this just now.
  24. Shadow Hearts NTSC-U - Imbroglio v3.20

    Yeah I've heard before how op the items in sh1 can be. I havent used those myself. I used 3rd keys cause they're purchasable. I might make some adjustments at some point. Thanks for the feedback and enjoy Covenant!
  25. Shadow Hearts NTSC-U - Imbroglio v3.20

    Wow you've really blasted through sh1 fast i know where ur coming from with not wanting to play ftnw. It IS kinda different. It still has demand though and I like it too so I'll be working on that. I really put lots of effort into this sh1 mod. Maybe even more than for Covenant by now so I'll gladly take any critic about these mods and especially the Covenant one. Happy new years to you and the rest btw! Hopefully next year's gonna be better than 2023 was.
