Secret of Mana Hard ModeDescription

Don’t think this is gonna be a 100% Gold Remake, it’ll have its differences. Extra battles (some’ll be optionals, tough but rewarding), Hoenn Pokemon (in every area, and hard to find) New areas, Remapped some dungeons (so your old guides wont work) , Extra recurring characters (some’ll hate you, some’ll help you)

Note that the hack is incomplete but feel free to enjoy the hack as-is.

Patching the game:

A patching program, LunarIPS, is included in this archive.
You also need a copy of Secret of Mana (Don't bother asking for the rom!)

This archive contains 3 folders with 2 ips files in it.
One is for the headered the other one for the headerless ROM.

To find out which ROM you have look at the filesize: 

2.097.664 bytes ROM with header
2.097.152 bytes ROM without header

==========================================================================

Content of the folders:

a) Hard Secret of Mana
----------------------
This patch is intended for every Version of Secret of Mana except 
the japanese one.

b) Hard Secret of Mana (Japanese)
---------------------------------
This patch is for the japanese version of the game.
(Seiken Densetsu II)

c) Hard Secret of Mana + VWF Edition (US)
-----------------------------------------
This patch combines the VWF-Edition from FuSoYa Niche and the hard mode. 
Usable only with the US version of the game.

The VWF edition improves the text. 
The stretched font Square used was changed to a VWF and the story text 
has been rewritten to take advantage of the extra space.
