Obsoletes movie #1146 (2:04:26.37)

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
- Genre: Strategy
Award - Lucky TAS of 2009
Shining Force is just under two hours of luck manipulation action. The random number generator is abused to the highest degree. The author used MATLAB, a math scripting language, to optimize the battle speeds.

This is a 4 minute 27 second improvement over the previous movie by the same author.
