       Notes about this version:

	   THIS IS NOT THE LAST UPDATE.
         I've fully revised the text correcting some mistakes.
         There are also some new features and updates of some old ones.

       Notes about the next version:

         It will take some time due to the fact that I have to start
         replaying the game from the begining (some problems with my saved
         games,I was using an emulator and they were damaged and I had to
         delete them,I will be using my original cart next time.I don't want
         this happening again).
         So...Don't think the next version will be ready until 2003 or 2004
         Meanwhile...just enjoy this one.

    0-Prologue: TRIBUTE TO THE SHINING LIGHT
    =====================================================================
     Authorīs note:

     After 10 years playing Shining in the Darkness (SITD/SATD)
     Iīve decided to write down all my notes about this master piece.
     I am Know replaying the game to correct possible mistakes.
     So be patient.Iīll try to add new information as soon as possible.

     This faq is dedicated to the memory of my father
          Manuel Salcedo (1948-2000)
     I would also thank my girlfriend Laura for her support.
     (Sorry for all the time I could not spend with you īcause I was very
      busy replaying the game and typing this faq).

     Well... Letīs go!

    =====================================================================
    1-TOP SECRETS
    =====================================================================

      1.1:GET EVERY ITEM IN THE GAME!!!!!!

          Yes...You Know this game has a high encounter rate,but monsters
          rarely drop an item.
          Each type of monster has his own item (see Monster list),and
          Only carries one for each battle,so if you use this method well
          you could get every item in the game and many of the same type
          (What about getting unlimited Ice staves?).
          There are many items that you can only get by forcing an enemy
          to drop it.
          There are two ways to do that:
              MAGIC: MUDDLE LV2
              USING AN ITEM: DEMON STAFF

	  USING MUDDLE LV2:

            You will have to wait untill you are on exp level 42 for
            Pyra to learn this Spell.Then,when you are in battle use it.
            If it works,some or all monsters will go mad,then you just
            have to put Milo and Pyra the Defend option and the main
            caracter to use a "nothing happens item,like the armor he is
            wearing",then if you wait some turns and the enemy donīt
            flee from battle you will get a message saying:
                " (insert monster name here) hands over his treasure "
            An you get a new item for your collection.
            If the effect of the spell wears off just cast a new one.

            Unfortunately this method consumes MP and the spell fails
            usually.So Iīll recomend the next method.

        USING THE DEMON STAFF:

            Although itīs called DEMON staff itīs not cursed if you
            equip it.The curse comes when you use it.The Staff will
            create a fog that will muddle your party and all monsters in
            battle.
            The effect could possibly be like a muddle Lv3 spell.(I CALL
            IT TOTAL MADNESS).
            First you should unequip all your weapons,this way you wonīt
            kill the monster whose item you want and just defend your
            party or use a no effect item.The rate of the monster handing
            over his treasure is really high.

            Unfortunately sometimes you will kill the monster before
            getting his item,but donīt worry.There are unlimited monsters,
            just wait untill another one of the same type appear.
            The effect of the curse wears off after the battle ends.

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

      2.1-Experience Chart

              In a future version of this faq

      2.2-Learnig spells

          Here are the spells you can learn and the Experience level
          required.Sometimes you will learn the spell a level up or
          down this list.I suppose It is  due to your current IQ
          points on that exp level or it is just that the exp level
          required changes every time you replay the game.

    9-DARK EQUIPMENT CURSES
    =====================================================================

      Is it worth to equip cursed items???
      Well: Here is the 1st version list of CURSED ITEMS AND THEIR CURSE

      WEAPONS:

           NAME : ENDURO STAFF
           USER : Pyra
           CURSE: An energy Backslash hits Pyra everytime she attacks
                  for 25% damage of the total damage caused to the enemy

                  If you hit for 12 points damage you will receive 3 points
                  Of damage.
                  If you hit for 10 of damage you will receive 3
                  (because you cannot recieved 2.5 points of damage,the same
                   goes if the percentage leads you to 2.3 or 2.7 damage)

           NAME : HEX WHIP
           USER : PYRA
           CURSE: Pyra may be tangled in the whip an unable to move for
                  some turns.You may regain movement before the battle ends.
                  I am trying to calculate the % of being tangled and regain
                  movement.

           .........To be continued

      ARMOR:

           NAME : WORN ROBE
           USER : ALL
           CURSE: 2 Armor factor defense points (I think this is the worst)
                  I think there is no battle effect at all

           .........To be continued

    ======================================================================
    10-UNSOLVED MYSTERIES
    =====================================================================

     10.1: BLESSED ITEMS PROPERTIES THEORY

      The vision spell reveals that some rare items marked with
      the deal type have some special properties.I donīt know what
      is that supposed special use or property.If you know of their
      use e-mail me and I will put your discoveries in the next version
      of the faq.

      Here is the list of those items:

        MAGIC HOOD
        SUN ARMOR (The blessing: PROTECTION AGAINST FIRE )
        ELVEN HOOD
        LIGHT ROBE
        MITHRIL ARMOR
        MITHRIL SHIELD

                    The vision spell reveals:
                    Itīs blessed with power.It might have other uses

        THEORY: Protection against Magic and Status effect spells or attacks;
                This is what I supposed it could be;
                         It has been confirmed by Thomas Anton
                                   (Thanks Thomas)

        CONFIRMED:

         SUN ARMOR: Protection against Fire (Either Spells or Breath attacks)
                    Must be equiped,can only be used by the main caracter.

           .........To be continued

     10.2: UNKNOWN MONSTERS ITEMS

           There are some monsters I still doesnīt know what item they
           drop or hand.Usually because they appear before getting the
           Demon Staff or the Muddle Lv2 Spell.
           And some of them īcase this two methods donīt even work.
           If you ever discovered what they kept (Maybe you were lucky
           enough and they dropped the item or by cheating with an Action
           Replay or Game Genie) e-mail me.
           It will be a top contribition if they are really rare items.

           The monsters are 3: Handeater,Dark Knight and Dark Sol.

           ....To be continued

     10.3: THE SLEEPING SENTINEL/GUARDIAN THEORY

           I am sure you notice the statue near the entrance to the cave
           of Wisdom (LEVEL 1).You checked it...Used some items in front
           of it(ORB OF TRUTH...) but nothing happens.
           Later on,when you reach LEVEL 2 there are more statues
           (SENTINEL,see monster list) and later on the game a new one
           appear (GUARDIAN),they attack you when you approach them.

           But...What is that lonely statue doing in the Level 1 dungeon?
           It seems it has no intention of attacking.
           Is it just an ornamental one to trick you when you reach the
           living ones? Well...What do you think?

           THEORY:
           It seems almost everybody thinks they are just ornamental as
           I thought.

     10.4: FOUNTAINS THEORY

           You can drop the medallion in GOLD ones (3: Lv2,Lv3,Lv4)
           You can heal your party at the Spirit Fountain (Level 5)
           But what about the other ones???

           THEORY:
           I think they are just ornamental and a help to mark your position
           in the Dungeons,just like those candles on the walls.
           And I believe that many of you agree with me.

    =====================================================================
    11-FUNNY STUFF
    =====================================================================

     11.1: DONīT BELIEVE WHAT THE VISION TOLD YOU!

           The vision spell that Milo cast sometimes gives you a wrong
           description about which caracter can equip a certain weapon or
           armor.
           Here are some of those mistakes:
             LONG SPEAR: Can be used by You,Milo and Pyra but the spell
                         reveals:
                         "Itīs for magic users.Milo canīt use it".

                    SHORT SPEAR
                    BRONZE KNIFE   Leave the same message
                    SHORT SWORD

           Seems like a very funny programming mistake

     11.2: HERB WATER & HOLY WATER CONTENTS

           This is really funny: Cast the vision spell on Herb Water and
           Holy Water items,it reveals.

           Herb Water: "It contains HOLY WATER"
           Holy Water: "Itīs a bottle of potions and HERBS"

           Seems like a very funny programming mistake

    =====================================================================
    12-EPILOGUE:KEEP SHINING!
    =====================================================================

      I would like to thank Climax and Sega for making this master piece
      and all the SITD fans at the SITD message board at gamefaqs.com for
      their support.
      Specially:

      Bryan Heilman for his help confirming about the item dropped
         by the monster Sea Stallion (I missed this item in my notes,I
         think because the item is not rare) and for noticing some
         spelling mistakes.(Soo much time typing Bryan)
         I hope you will keep contributing.

      Thomas Anton for confirming this too, my thoughts about the
         Magic Hood and other blessed items and SOLVING the Dopplerīs
         item mystery.(See monster list)
         I hope you will keep contributing too.

         I didnīt know (Herb Water).Thanks for your help.

    13-GAME GENIE CODES
    =====================================================================

    The code have been tested with emulators,due to the fact that is
    nearly impossible end expensive to find a Game Genie Cart for a
    Genesis-Megadrive console nowdays.
    I used Kgen98.04 and Wgens1.00 and it worked properly:

         CODE                     EFFECT

         1T0T-AEBT                Start a new Game With 9,999,999 (Max Gold)
                                  ONLY WORKS WITH A NEW GAME
                                  DON'T WORKS WITH A SAVED ONE
