  1. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    I've done some more testing and I've realized the bosses can actually be beaten with halved Str & Mag Junctions (even though it can be really hard). Even the timed event bosses can be barely done. This was an important realization for me. So v4.6 goes back to the previous harder setup while retaining enemy Str & Mag at +2 / level and more. Basically bosses take longer to kill while normal encounters are defeated pretty much as fast as previously due to them having og HP instead of doubled. Final bosses and Omega are harder cause of lowered healing. Auras are back so it doesn't take ages to beat them. Here's everything that was changed from v4.5 to v4.6: - Str & Mag Junction power halved. Str+% & Mag+% halved. - Magic Draw Resistance halved (since Mag stat is lowered this helps to prevent situations where casting enemy's Protect for example whiffs cause of low Magic stat). - High level Potions heal for 4000. Auras and Aura Stones are back to original. v4.6 has correct descriptions except the Refine amounts which can be incorrect.

    v4.5 corrects the descriptions of the changed stuff. The only descriptions that remain incorrect are the Refine amounts. I'll see if I'm able to change them in the future as well.
  3. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v4.4 lessens the effectiveness of some Refines granting less spells in the outcome. However, since I haven't changed the item descriptions some items say they grant 20 spells as the outcome and may for example grant only 5. To make sure you know the amount you're gonna get try Refining the magic without actually finalizing it. I may update the descriptions at some point but it's not the time for it yet.

    In my previous update I was trying to cater to the final boss, making her as ultimate as I could possibly do. However, doing so actually nerfs some other stuff which I don't like. I'm moving closer to the truth with v4.3 which gives enemies and the player more power. This is what I've done before but I've done other changes too so it's still a step forward. The final boss is still good with these changes from what I can see. So the changes with v4.3: -Str & Mag Junctions are now original (like before). -High level Potions again heal for 5000 health. -Auras and Aura Stones again grant Protect & Shell instead of Aura. -Enemy str & mag power is back to +2 / level. -Enemy hp is again doubled. There are exceptions where it's original hp instead of x 2. This is what I like to continue moving forward with.
  5. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    I'm sorry about all these frequent updates but I feel like I'm living uncertain times right now. I've now learned the hard way not to mess with the enemy med/high level. This game puts me in my place everytime I change them, so: v4.2 changes enemy lvl2 & lvl3 skill levels back to the original. Boss levels remain at x 1.5. Now Str and Mag junction power is halved just like the other 3 stats. With the nerf to healing high level Potions heal 4k health again instead of 5k. Aura and Aura Stones get back their Aura effect. Enemy Str & Mag +1 / level. I'm running a playthrough of this mod again with this new setup and i'll change things if I see something that doesn't feel right.
  6. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v4.1 changes the effect of Auras and Aura Stones. Now they grant Protect & Shell on 1 party member instead of the effect of Aura. With this change now the final bosses are locked to level 90 again and the final dungeon bosses' levels go with x 1.5 formula, as the rest of the bosses. Omega Weapon is an exception. He is still locked to lvl 100. Final bosses and all soldiers now go with doubled health (same as all the other monsters).
  7. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    I feel like I made a mistake in my previous update by having double the EXP and AP from battles. I've been doing lots of testing and I've come to the conclusion I have to revert them. v4.0 reverts EXP and AP gained back to the og with boss levels and enemy lvl2 & 3 multiplied by 1.5. There are some exceptions: Ifrit is now locked to lvl 12, Fake President & Gerogero lvl 21 and Brothers lv 25. and after that everything goes by x 1.5 (Iguion, Seifer 1, Biggs & Wedge 2 still scale). The final dungeon bosses remain the same as before. Another change is Card Mod is now learnable by Alexander GF instead of Tonberry. It replaces Alexander's Elem Atk Junction. I feel like forcing players to tackle Tonberry early wasn't a good idea. Tonberry has now Move-HP Up learnable again. I'm sorry for jumping all over the place with this mod. I'm trying to make this as perfect in my eyes as possible and I won't stop until I succeed or end up in early grave ^^.

    v3.9 doubles the Exp & AP gained from random encounters. In fixed version Minotaur & Sacred are now locked to level 30.
  9. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v3.8 changes Ifrit, Diablos & Odin hp to og. Iguions, Seifer 1, Biggs & Wedge 2, Laguna's Ruby Dragon fight & Propagators now scale to player's level in the fixed version mod.
  10. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v3.5's changes botched the difficulty a bit. In v3.7 I'm returning some stuff to their previous states and adding some new. Changes: -Enemy strength and magic stat + 2 / level. -Strength and Magic Junctions are no longer halved which is why also the high level Potions heal for 5000 instead of the 4000 of the previous update. -Enemy level is now doubled starting from the Fake President. This is what I wanted to do so there are more reasons to level up. The Sorceress gatekeepers before the final dungeon are now locked to level 90 and all the bosses in final dungeon are locked to level 100 with the exception of the very first boss and Catoblepas. -Almost all of the storyline bosses have double the hp now. I will be playing through the game more and possibly upping some of them to x3 in the future if I see need for it.
  11. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    For some reason the Glacial Eye enemy didn't have its agl upped, v3.55 fixes that.
  12. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v3.5 is another big update on the mod. Now there are 2 versions of the mod: Fixed level and Max level. The versions prior to 3.5 all are max level versions with bosses scaling to the party's average level. This is the more casual version while the new fixed version has bosses on fixed levels that are harder if you haven't been leveling enough. This patch halves the effectiveness of Str and Mag Junction stat and Str+% & Mag+% Junction abilities. With the nerfed magic power now X-Potions, Elixirs and Megalixirs restore 4000 HP instead of 5000. With the required levels for the bosses upped by 1.5 multiplier now the enemies get to their 2nd and 3rd level x 1.5 later. This also affects what drawable magic is available from them. For example now Cerberus has 'Triple' drawable when he's 30 levelled when before he had it at level 20. With both versions the final bosses are now locked at lvl 90 and Omega Weapon lvl 100. All enemies get +1 Str, +1 Mag and +1 Agl per level. The enemies that had their hp x3 are now x2 and those that were hp x2 now have their original hp.
  13. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v3.1 is an important continuation to the previous update. This patch multiplies bosses' max levels by 1.5. So for example Biggs and Wedge in the Dollet Communications Tower can now be max 15 levelled instead of 10. This helps to prevent being overleveled at the storyline bosses. I also changed the final bosses. Now they're locked to level 100 but with 3 x hp at lvl30 and +1 agl / level.
  14. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v3.0 is an important patch to this mod. I've changed lots of things to make the mod better and more enjoyable. Changes: All enemies' str & mag + 50 at lvl 30. All enemies' agl + 1 / level. Except the final boss that remains at +2 / level. All random encounter enemies' hp x 2 at lvl 30. Exceptions Tonberry and Cactuar which remain at their original hp. All soldiers remain at hp x 3. Other changes: BGH251F2 (Missile Base boss) hp to original. BGH251F2 (2nd fight) hp x 3. Minotaur & Sacred (Brothers boss) hp x 3. Diablos boss hp x 2.
  15. FF8 Remastered - Extreme v4.6

    v2.9 changes later enemies and bosses agility back to +1 / level. Also, now all bosses except Red Giant are immune to Gravity. Since some bosses also show up as random encounters they are immune to Gravity as well.
