  1. Hi guys. Another quick update on the mod. v2.1 tones down Malice Gilbert's madness (agl down) and Jonin's HP is now lower (in line with the other last duels) but his agl goes up. I'm very close to starting modding Purgatory now. Then again I need to play through it just as much as I mod the enemies so it's gonna take a while.
  2. Hello NGPlus. I've been doing some precise testing on the enemies' power levels in SH:FtNW and came up with patch v2.0. This is an important update that buffs random encounter enemies' power (especially magic power). In addition I made 'Jonin' and 'Q The Great' tougher. Purgatory is still underway. I updated my SH:C mod which halted the progress of this mod. I apologize for that. I will now be focusing on this mod and will be working my way towards Purgatory. Anyway I hope you like the changes I made in this update.
  3. Hello fellow Godslayers. It's me with a somewhat important update to this mod. I've done some precise testing on the enemies' power levels and found out more monsters could one shot the party members than I initially thought. What I did with v4.0 was lower the enemies' physical damage so they won't be able to one shot anyone if they happen to get a lucky critical strike as long as the player is not too far from the set level. In addition I adjusted their magic power based on their physical stats. The magic damage they deal is pretty much the same as before. These changes are not made to remove challenge from the mod, but only to balance things out and make the game more enjoyable. I also balanced the early bosses based on the changes I did to the random encounters. None of the bosses after 'Mother Filaria' were altered, with the only exception the 'Fuujin & Raijin' boss near the end. They have slightly lower physical damage now. With that said they will combo you to death if you don't have defense up. Also, the 'Gigafilaria' gatekeepers now have slightly lower hp, so those that can deal high damage will be able to one shot them. Give my updated mod a try if you feel like it. I will now be focusing on From the New World where I will be making changes to the normal enemies similarly as I have done here.
  4. Don't worry you're not rambling at all! I need to go back to my Covenant mod and edit it a bit since I noticed Anastasia gets one shot if Victor happens to crit. This shouldn't be the case with this mod since I made more calculations with the damage outputs and found correct multipliers to apply. The 3 Shadow Hearts games enemies have all kinda similar power levels and I've learned to look at things more critically while modding this one.
  5. Hey no probs. I like to make JRPGs harder. They seem to be the easiest genre out of all games since they're made really easy for some reason. Shadow Hearts series is really great imo. Also check out my Shadow Hearts Covenant mod if you feel like it. Anyway I hope you have great fun with the mod.
  6. I noticed the normal monsters in Las Vegas, Machu Picchu & Vilcabamba were too weak so I gave them a bit more strength and magic power in patch v1.3. The mafia in Vegas remain untouched.
  7. I just updated the mod to v1.2. This patch increases "Chupacabra" & "Kerufe" bosses agility and decreases Kerufe's special damage.
  8. Hi I just released patch 1.1 of this mod that ups the hp of the 3 early bosses (Igornak, Ronwei & Procyon). This is one of the few things that were amiss from what I can see. I will be updating this mod if need be as I go with my New Game+ playthrough of the game.
  9. Hi NGPlus community. It's me again with another difficulty modification. This hard mod is called "Grace" and it's for the NTSC-U version of Shadow Hearts: From the New World. This mod ups enemies' HP, Str, Mag and Agl values. You'll need to be higher level than normal in order to progress in the game. You will receive more exp, cash and soul to help in that. In order to beat the game it's recommended to do all possible sidequests. When you have done all sidequests you should be around 72 levelled. I did the final boss at lv75 but it was hard as hell. You can level up further if you feel it's too hard but it can definitely be done 75 levelled even if you don't use any Seals. v2.1 has everything else modded but the Purgatory special dungeon enemies. Basically you need to play the game through once in order to get there cause you need to take Snaps of the final boss. I'm working to get there but it's gonna take a while. That dungeon is meant to be entered 72 levelled and Envious Jealousy is probably meant to be done maxed out. But yeah I gotta work my way there. To use this mod you need to patch your game image with the one in the zip file using "ppf-o-matic" tool. I hope you will like this mod. If you have any questions about anything that has to do with it or just want to discuss it go ahead and comment, I will be here. Here's the download link for the mod: http://www.mediafire.com/file/90ho6rce18uiwyr/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_2_1.zip These are the outdated versions but I will include them here anyway: http://www.mediafire.com/file/scmmrcq37uvrh85/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_2_0.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/blwimlxpba4uorb/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_3.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/ks4gn37thtwcehv/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_2.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/z3vz3v0jpszg43b/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_1.zip http://www.mediafire.com/file/0w80mq96ehc8fko/shadow_hearts_ftnw_grace_1_0.zip
  10. Yep you are right. However you don't get the 'Gathering' spell until very late in the game. I hope you like my mod for this game. I'm working on From the New World right now. It's gonna be my next completed project. After that I'm probably gonna do the 1st Shadow Hearts to complete the trilogy.
  11. Hello again. It's me with a new version (v3.33) of the mod. In v3.33 I have disabled the option to buy the Spikes accessory. I've been trying to make the normal enemies more exciting and the Spikes accessory works directly against it, not giving the enemies the chance to combo. There are also other things that I don't like about Spikes. Guarding becomes meaningless, enemies' status effects don't register, the Mutant Apes don't have Spikes equipped, making the Shoki enemies one shot them (it shouldn't be that way) among other things. With v3.33 I also upped the normal enemies' HP so the player can't one shot enemies unless they use right elements. There are also enemies that are tankier than some others so you can no longer one shot them. I'll be focusing on other projects now that I got this patch out. Thanks for all support guys. I'll be updating this mod if I see something's amiss, but I'm pretty confident with how the mod is at this point.
  12. Out of the optional dungeons the Neam Ruins is supposed to be done last. Also this mod is scaled to normal ring. Using Technical Ring is basically the easy mode if you are good at hitting the strike areas. I'm gonna release a new version of this mod in a bit.
  13. Hey no probs! I hope you are having fun playing my mod.
  14. Hello NGPlus community. This may come as a surprise but I've been changing things a bit in this mod and have come up with version 3.0. When I first released this mod I thought I had polished things enough when that actually wasn't the case. I have matured as a modder and look things a bit more realistically instead of just buffing the hell out of the enemies. The changes I made with v3.0 in a nutshell: - Normal enemies deal less damage (no more crazy one shotting). That still doesn't mean I made them too weak. They still do damage they just don't do THAT much. In addition to that most bosses have increased HP values (this includes the wolf bout enemies). I also decreased experience, cash and soul gained in Paris subway dungeon. Also Neo Astaroth has a bit better agility, and the first 2 bosses are a bit slower but hit harder. Little changes here and there. I hope I didn't ruin anyone's fun with this mod with the previous versions. If you still have an itch for this game give my updated mod a try!
  15. I guess I had gotten a bit absorved in the whole joke-after-joke thing that's going on that I kept finding Johnny and the summoner lady irritatingly different. I agree that they could've taken different angle. What's interesting is SHC was supposed to be dark just like the first Shadow Hearts game but players complained that SH1 was too scary so they toned it down. Also, Yuri was supposed to be the villain. Lol. That FFX challenge was "no agility, magic def or def upgrades. I also didn't use Rikku's mixing or overdrive at all. Rikku is still important character since she is much faster than the rest. I'm still convinced that the challenge can be beaten even without Rikku's op mixing. People that say DDS1 is easy are probably those that play Atlus games all the time. DDS1 is a bit easier than DDS2. DDS2 has 3 of those "badass" bosses in the story that are tougher than the rest and the enemies are maybe a little more punishing. I thought ME1 had a better overall atmosphere which made me like it more. Then again it's been a while since I played those games.
