Secret of Evermore... like many people back in the SNES days, when I
tried this game out I was expecting a game of the same caliber as
Secret of Mana. And like many, I was rather disappointed. But the
one major thing that really irked me about the game was the lack of 2
player support. I mean really, if you're going to give it a name
similar to SoM, and you're going to use the same battle system, and
the same ring menu system, and use the same method of switching the
character you're in control of using Select, then why in the world
would you stop there and not make it multiplayer like SoM!?
Anyway, fast forward to the end of 2003. I was trying to choose a
multiplayer console RPG Zero-G and I could play together, when I
remembered SoE and its annoying lack of 2 player support. It then
occured to me that if it still bothered me so much, why not just
do something about it?
So I did. -_^
And this patch is the result. Now you can finally have a proper 2
player game of Secret of Evermore! You can hit start on the first
or second controller to enter/withdraw from the game, and either
player can control either character, just like in SoM. There's
even a controller indicator number that will appear beside the
character you're in control of.
