can they? cause im sort of in a predicament. ive married everyone except sumia, but it looks like she can only marry a few different guys, but they are already married to someone else. does that mean i cant get cynthia now? fml.
he meant the battle save available in casual mode, i think. But it doesn't pertain to you, since that's not what went wrong in your case.
well, live and learn.
He could still have meant the Bookmark, since Bookmark saves will count for the Support Log, while not keeping anything permanent on the actual save file after you reload. So you can get an S Support, recruit the child and do the child-parent Support, then reload and repeat for the rest of the child-parent combinations.
Only matters if you're full on save files and doing it on a Classic save file, but still.
It's not the game's fault if you don't pay attention to Sumia's support options - at any given time you can simply just take a look at who's available for an S-Rank for any character.
I'm sorry you wasted 200 hours, even tho I don't understand how it's possible to put 200 hours into this game and THEN notice you can't marry Sumia off - it didn't even take me 10 hours to marry everyone off and unlock all the children chapters. Sure, grinding for the right skills & max stats can take some time, but why would I start doing the latter unless I'm all done with the pairing up stuff? I'd say this is more your own fault for not paying attention than the game's. :P
