Shining Force PC source code now on Github

Here’s some great news for aspiring developers – bludragn has decided to release the full Shining Force PC source code onto GitHub.

I’ve decided to finally release the code for my old engine.

Hopefully it can be of use to anyone working on their own engine, or just curious as to how SFPC works. It’s possible I may come back to it to tinker again at some point, I’ve learned a lot in the years since I last touched it, but I don’t have the time or the motivation I once did to spend on it.

The project itself is written in C++, and can be built using Visual Studio 2010. The source contains everything from the 2012 summer update, which includes an A* path finding algorithm and a custom script engine. If you’re interested in creating your own Shining style project it’s well worth a look!

Legacies of Veridocia Demo Released

Legends of Veridocia

The first alpha for Shining Force Central’s community has been released!

Legacies of Veridocia has been in the works for quite some time and has involved many community members. It certainly hasn’t been a smooth ride, but thankfully everybody’s efforts have paid off with the release of the first demo.

The Demo consists of a Story Scene, a battle, and a post-battle story scene, followed by a basic free roam of the map (there’s not much there right now). Once you’ve played through to the free roam, you can reinitiate the battle as many times as desired by walking into the area where the characters begin the battle.

The demo itself is short but extremely polished. If you’ve played Shining Force 2, you’ll recognize the animation style almost immediately, and the portraits and battle scenes all suit the game perfectly. To run the demo you’ll need the latest version of Java installed.
