Fire+wind attack (Merton):

 

Before the patch:

Null fire, neutral wind : 0 damage

Null fire, weak wind : 0 damage

Null fire, null wind: 0 damage

Null fire, resist wind: 0 damage

weak wind, neutral fire: double damage

weak wind, weak fire: double damage

weak wind, absorb fire: absorb

Resist fire, resist wind: half damage

Resist fire, neutral wind: half damage

 

After the patch:

Null fire, neutral wind : half damage

Null fire, weak wind : normal damage

Null fire, null wind: 0 damage

Null fire, resist wind: half damage

weak wind, neutral fire: double damage

weak wind, weak fire: double damage

weak wind, absorb fire: absorb

Resist fire, resist wind: half damage

Resist fire, neutral wind: normal damage

 

Also confirmed that this patch does not accidentally change single-element damage in any way.

So, I got lost in all the hoop-la. Nothing can change with the implementation because of FFVI programming, did I hear right?

It's not impossible, but the more complex the logic the harder it'll be to implement. This is by far the easiest way to handle multiple elements that isn't picking most-resistant, since it only uses addition/subtraction/dividing by 2. The instant we start dividing by other numbers, things get messy.

What about just having elementals use the same damage multiplier formula that everything else uses? Jump, Berserk, Morph, and all that?

When I apply this patch it makes my game glitch when I enter combat, everything turns to static and the game freezes. I'm using a headered rom and playing on Snes9x. Tried patching a vanilla copy of FF6 but the same glitch happened.

Try with a unheadered ROM. Looking at the asm code/file, the header part is commented out with ; which means it won't be taken into account when patching. So I'd assume the ips patch is for unheadered.
Cool patch btw!
