  1. I'm afraid it is a 'no', you'd have to make room in character data to save experience and even restructure the save file so it records that instead of class exp.
  2. If you tried the mod and have something to share about your experience, be it small nitpicks, ideas, random thoughts, ramblings, musings or, why not, praise, you can do so here. In case you want an extended discussion regarding some specific aspect of the game or mod you can open a new thread instead. These are some of the more obvious known issues, some are low priority and some are either extremely tedious or tricky to fix. Missing character sprite in the opening scenes of Donnalto's or Rudlum's battles. Funny item, skill or spell sorting in some categories (spells can be manually sorted for use so this is a low priority one). Disabled skills in enemy skill lists which should be replaced with something more useful. Identical descriptions on some lategame weapons. Consolidated changelist up to version 0.92a can be found here, along with an up-to-date class sheet detailing the skills and abilities of all classes in the mod. On the same address you can also find a damage calculator table explaining some of the mechanical nuances is available in the same location, it is made for vanilla game but all of the formulas are still the same, consult the manual sheet for more info.
  3. Thanks, their stats show properly so I wasn't too concerned with it, but fixing descriptions is no trouble at all.
  4. There weren't really any, you're pretty much looking at all the modding effort that went into the game recently. My notes are too messy to be useful, unfortunately, I'll try tidying them up when all is done.
  5. The game doesn't really give them anything, the way it works is this: - The battle has a list of units with fixed racial templates, class, loyalty and alignment. There are battles where all units from the list are assigned, some where you always get several and the rest are picked randomly from the rest of the list and some battles where all are random. For example, those castle fights with reinforcements start with a very long list, some are fixed, some are randomly picked from the starter list and when the game has to spawn another unit it picks one from the reinforcement list. - When they spawn the game assigns them a name from a list and a small amount of stat points at random on top of those their racial template comes with. Also, it checks their skills and assigns them gear according to their autoequip setting (same as your autoequip options on party screen) with some randomness, it won't always go for the best option if it can use multiple weapon skills. So, what's random there is which units spawn but they're preset. The default lizardman template is 32str and 30dex, the warrior template has 36/30 and the rogue template is 32/34. so the best outcome for you is finding a battle where a dex lizarman spawns and run it a few times until he rolls 3-4 extra points in dex, but if the battle doesn't have that template on the list it will never happen. And ignore which weapons they have equipped, it doesn't matter. When I get to adjusting battle data I'll also tweak which templates are on the list so you at least aren't getting warriors with a mage template. Some have requested to be able to recruit humanoids like lizards or fairies in certain towns and I'll do that if possible, you will be able to get the desired template easier that way and give them custom names.
  6. It would be best to make a CWC code, that way it will still work when I update. There's quite a few addresses to change and they're all over the place so it might take a while, I'll see what can be done.
  7. It's fairly easy to do with a multiwrite CWC code that disables the skill for use by any class, I'll make one when I got time and send you a PM. If death timers can be removed, I wouldn't know how to do it.
  8. Sure, I'll send you a pm with the KC code later.
  9. Yeah, that's exactly it, once you get Lans you will be able to buy the classmark at deneb's
  10. I certainly haven't tried, hard to say how hard would it be. I suppose it depends on the encoding that psp can work with, if file size can't be tweaked with bitrate there might be problems with maintaining the original iso size.
  11. There's a workaround of sorts, Warrior has a Squash skill that can instantly destroy any object on the battlefield, once you learn it you can use it with most strength-aligned melee classes. Not many people request it because very few treasures are worth the effort, buffing them is a low priority goal because they're most likely a part of battle data and that's all over the place, but it should eventually happen.
  12. I assume you tried to do it in training, if a guide lists the items that can be picked up during the story battle that's when you should do it.
  13. Tactics Ogre: One Vision

    Version 0.92f


    TO: LUCT is no doubt one of the classics of turn based tactical games, it can boast complex storyline with a memorable cast of characters and multiple endings, as well as a deep combat system with a vast arsenal of equipment, items and spells. Its PSP port can also serve as an example of how such things should be done, with the game getting not only a much needed facelift but also a thorough redesign of most combat elements. Sadly, the game isn’t without faults, as some of the new features make it extremely prone to exploits which an experienced player can use to fully remove any challenge from the game. The main goal of this mod is to render such exploits more difficult, bringing weapons, classes and skills closer to the level they should perform at, as well as to each other. Its secondary goal is to provide tweaks to immersion, visuals and some of the more cumbersome game systems like crafting and endless skill farming. This is still a work in progress so all feedback is welcome. For installation instructions and more info check the included Readme file. Major features: Weapon, armor and consumable item rework. Equipment is more likely to do what you expect of it, 2H weapons will do a lot of damage and a tank in heavy armor will be hard to kill. Additional items, spells and skills, as well as changes to the existing ones with a focus on improving the more unappealing choices. Skills that grant stat bonuses, like Strengthen or Spellcraft, as well as static choices like Switfoot or Spell Ward were removed and compensated with higher stat differences between classes than in vanilla game. A full Finishing move rebalance. Most ways of gaining permanent stats were removed to reduce power creep in late game and increase options during early game. The power of special characters was reduced across the board, they're about on par with each other now and not overwhelmingly stronger than generics. Generic characters have more diverse templates that split into fighter, rogue, mage and generalist archetypes, their stats can differ a lot depending on which one you hire. Significantly increased the levelling speed of slow skills, like Steal or Parry. Most classes were tweaked, with emphasis on nerfing the strong ones and buffing the weak, many gained new tricks. Monsters don't scale natural armor as high as before. With the changes to skills, their new role is high HP bullet sponges that take a lot of damage and use the TP gained to spam special moves. Many items are easier to acquire, reducing the endgame tedium. Visual changes to some items, special characters, skills and spells. Streamlined crafting. Consolidated changelist available in feedback thread.
  14. It's a 7zip archive (better compression than zip or rar), I'm not using mac but there seems to be a free Unarchiver app you can use to extract it. The one on moddb uses a different patching method, it's a recommended option because it's more compatible and easier to update later. The method here exists because ngplus can't directly host modified game files.
  15. Was it the only buff on the character? It's dex for all ranged weapons, I'd note it on sidearms category description if it was str for thrown.
  16. Good to hear you like it. More demihumans might not be a bad idea, but I'd have to think of some way to edit warren report first.
  17. It's a fairly common question, the two things to look out for is Lanselot having golden armor at the start of the game and the other is being able to buy 1h/2h katana in shops, that means two main files patched correctly.
  18. It's probably a better choice to use the patching method from moddb, you can use it on any iso version and it's perfectly fine to update an already patched one. With the patch I'm uploading here you need to keep a vanilla backup in proper size.
  19. Overall, we have a class with enough skills and item/spell access for three separate classes and it's easy enough to see which should go to fairies, which to gremlins and which ones to punkins. Since it isn't one class that can do everything anymore they will be able to get a bit more specialized and stronger at what they do, haven't outlined it fully yet but the faerie class would be light aligned with some ranged weapon options, gremlin would be a dark melee and pumpkin a neutral heavy melee.
  20. Right, sorry, that part is somewhat offset by weight, if you make your clerics tanky so they aren't attacked much they will get slower. Getting greedy and going for enemy clerics can expose your ranged units and/or flankers or disrupt the frontline, they don't go down too easily either.
  21. Right, I haven't been working on familiar much because the class should eventually get split into three, one for each race that has access to it, but that requires some major shifts from other classes I can't do before I have all battle data or we might end up seeing some real weird shit. So, it has the basic functionality but hasn't exactly been finetuned, currently it's a supporter with piddly stats which is mitigated by access to a ton of special skills and being a fairly attractive target gives it the TP to use them, we'll see what it ends up like. Most skills like pumpkin strike or vartan's windshot are affected by your attack damage, with a few exceptions like angel knight's Requiem which deals spell damage, so using a high ATK weapon will help but raising your weapon skill won't help a general skill (applies only to finishers, including finisher-like skills that necromancer and fuslier get). Yeah, you really need a lot of mnd to raise the heal amount so it's better to just go for speed or durability. Myself, I like to take to the quote that a medic can never allow himself to be taken out because who will heal the injured then.
  22. It's a minor patch, so in a few days or something.
  23. Everything you can remove with Intimidate is a readied skill. Other effects can also remove Evade or Intercession, the way I think they did it is designating some effects as magical, so healing or buff spells will remove intercession, and everything else counts as physical so items will remove evade. There will be some indirect changes to TK in 92c, minor debuffs will get more accurate in general, which will benefit him, and some skills you typically spam every turn with heavy units will cost less RT (like aegis, clones or fearful impact) so they will indirectly get a bit faster. Their magic is there just so they have something to do in the situations where they can't reach the enemy, their RT cost is low so you aren't slowing yourself down much even if you took a shot with low odds, you aren't supposed to use it over their melee attacks in general case scenario. On the other hand, status magic on real mages has to be accurate because it competes with the option of just going for straight damage.
  24. There would be a way to let him create a clone and blow it up in the same round, but that would make him a bit too good, TK doesn't have the raw damage output of some lighter classes but he outdamages a fair few and is fairly tanky. His main shtick is probably being a counterpart to his holier cousin, the knight removes statuses and he causes them, knight blocks movement and he clears a path, knight equips himself defensively and he's offensive. That's less of a role than a running theme bit it gives him enough identity and I'm not hearing he's underpowered often, I'd really need more feedback like that before I do something drastic to him. The dragon slayer sword is dreadfully heavy and also costs a ton of RT to use, I'd be very surprised if he could keep up with a ninja with that equipped. The thing about buccaneer is just one readied skill (ones that give you a star above) overwriting another, that's normal, you can have only one active.
  25. Mass applying fear and busting up shadow clones, mostly, his spells aren't too powerful but drain life and tp can be very useful. He also has a guaranteed hit skill so you get a 100% stun with maces and you can use those heavy sidegrade 2h swords with accuracy penalty.
