  1. Download and patch directly onto your BNW ROM. After TENS OF MINUTES of work I'm ready to release my modification to Brave New World. This is deliberately designed to be harder in a "FF3usME stat hack" style. @seibaby helped a bunch. Changelog below: V1: ATB formula changed so that enemy ATB fills twice as quickly. Esper Levels that grant HP now grant half the HP Warp and Warp Whistle made 33.33x more expensive. V2: Lowered ATB multipliers for slow/normal/haste by 5 each due to an overflow error causing hasted enemies to have very few turns Made the timer for status ticks constant, so that they are no longer affected by other status effects like Slow, Haste, Sleep, and Stop V3: Removed the Warp and Warp Whistle price hike V4: Added Warp Whistles to many item shops Added Back Guard to (pre-IMTRF) Narshe relic shop Reduced Back Guard price to 5000 (was 7500)
  2. After getting feedback and discussion about solutions, I've put out a V4 of NHT. The objective of this version is to ensure that the player always has a tool to handle pincer/back attacks and to always have the means to get out of combat with randoms (Warp Whistles) because running in NHT is pointless.
  3. Only on the Veldt if you already encountered one of the leapable Raven formations. Also you don't need to ask your question in multiple posts.
  4. What else does he have equipped? HP bonuses don't stack so he probably already has one equipped (just checked that Phoenix equip works on my Rom)
  5. Sounds like a patching issue. Did you patch making sure to patch a clean, unmodified FF3 US rom and patching BNW on it according to headered/non-headered issues. Also, if you're playing Clean New World make sure you're patching that on top of your properly patched BNW rom, so your rom would go from FF3 > Brave New World > Clean New World. Also, what did you do to get a level 20 blitz before fighting Vargas?
  6. It's worth noting that BNW hasn't really been all that tested with the MSU-1 patch. The in-game hooks thing is a known issue (with SD2SNES, I don't think we've had anyone play and report anything with Super NT yet)
  7. In Game hooks are used to do thinks like soft-reset button combos in game. They're known to interfere with some games, like BNW. They're a feature to SD2SNES so you'll want to look around in the options of the cart to disable them. I've been told that there's a system menu before you load a game that'd let you disable them.
  8. There's a large amount of "It Depends" with those stats. It's very dependent on what the character's doing, their equipment, their opponent, whether they'll hit the damage cap, etc. Pumping speed as someone's primary stat is typically best for healer/support characters, as they aren't as reliant on vigor/magic for being good at what they do. In addition, characters like Gau don't even have a vigor/magic option and it's 100% viable to just put every EL he has into speed. This doesn't work quite like an MMO where you just "raise stat to <x> for softcap then raise a different stat"
  9. EDIT: Pretty much everything I said was wrong, disregard.
  10. X-Zone procs from Doomstick seem to possess the "revives undead" property. Had an undead enemy come back from the dead from a proc. In addition a not... dead... undead 'died' and came back as if it was hit with Doom EDIT: Also dog block animations sometimes play for random characters blocking. None of them have procced reprisal yet so it appears to be purely visual. EDIT2: Lastly, the equipment screen is behaving very oddly, not properly displaying stat changes in an inconsistent way (not only when using Y to swap between relics and non-relics). I think I've only seen it in relics so far.
  11. Are you counting steps in that room, or steps total? The step counter (essentially) only resets upon a random encounter.
  12. I've been counting my steps so far, and I've yet to observe an encounter triggering too early.
  13. I've been dealing with a lot of computer issues recently, with BSODs at the worst happening multiple times a day. After swapping out hardware and trying various solutions to rectify it I'm still suffering from BSODs (every few days usually, though it seems to be getting worse). With that in mind I'll be running a week-long fundraiser on my Twitch channel to try to help pay for a replacement. I plan on using the following schedule, aiming for a noon PST start each day: Dec 26: Pokemon Crystal Randofuser (Donate to swap a Pokemon with one in a box) Dec 27: Crusader Kings 2 (Chat picks event outcomes, Donate to name a child) Dec 28: SNES Donator Choice (Donate and I'll play a SNES game of your choice) Dec 29: Final Fantasy 5 (Donate to change a character's job at any time) Dec 30: Link to the Past Randomizer (Bidwar during days leading up over Link's Sprite) Donation Goals: $50 - Bonus Mega Pony Single Stream $100 - Stardew Valley MP Stream $250 - Return to Mega Man 3 $500 - Return to Spyro the Dragon $750 - Return to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne $1000 - Bonus (based on availability) Chat Participation Streams once a week $1500 - Buy a Capture Card (enabling PS4 games on future polls) $2000 - Buy a Switch using my own funds down the line (enabling Switch games on future polls) Donations will be done via bits on my stream (for those that prefer bits or watch ads) and via Streamlabs, Even if you can't donate I would appreciate anyone coming by and helping to enjoy the shenanigans
  14. There's been discussion in the discord before about a zone being converted to a water based zone for Water Rondo. A couple of times the idea of somehow 'unlocking' all the WoB formations on the Veldt when you go to the WoR was tossed around. I don't think they're going to make something as drastic as making the WoB accessible again though. What Lores are you missing? I was under the impression that they weren't actually missable.
  15. Well, I tried uploading it so it'd embed but the links don't seem to work... So here's the link to my FF7 New Threat streams: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/207970355?collection=s3rSNMuH_hQmKw
  16. I'm kinda surprised that Hell Angel ended up being a difficulty. On my original run it wasn't bad at all, but that may have just been that my 1 fight against him in NHT going well. I'm enjoying hearing about this on the whole.
  17. until

    We have a calendar?
  18. Based on this post I decided to toss up the Secret Santa dispersal thread right about now. Tag the person who your SS gift is for and share your gift!
  19. The idea behind some rankups giving more stats is that they give stats that the character isn't as easily able to leverage (example: Aeris has naturally better Magic than Strength and tends to benefit more from Magic than Strength on the whole, so she needs more from any +Strength ranks). As to if that works, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ There is something notable about a couple of the characters in that they have rank ups that are flat out worse than simply alternating ranks in two different... Ranks. If one looks closely at Barett and Red13's rank options then you straight up lose stats. Example: Barret with 8 Ranks in Marauder has a total stat bonus (not counting the +5 to all that everyone gets) of +40 Str/Vit/Spr but a Barret with 4 ranks in Vigilante and 4 ranks in Heavy Metal has a total stat bonus of +40 Str/Vit/Spr AND +20 Dex.
  20. As viewable here my stream earlier was a very interesting one. Donators were able to choose any SNES game to play and I ended up playing an interesting variety. This helped me break the $100 mark of funds raised and I'm incredibly happy that people were willing to support me. Here's a list, in order, of what I was subjected to Mega Man X3 Uniracers Super Star Wars The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse Mohawk & Headphone Jack Zombies Ate My Nighbors Scooby-Doo Mystery Super Bonk Soul Blazer WCW Super Brawl Wrestling Populous American Gladiators Super Pinball - Behind the Mast Super Mario All-Stars It was a very interesting day and my last 2 days have the potential to be quite exciting as well, with a FF5 run where I don't control what job each character has (donations do) then my first Link to the Past Randomizer. I hope to see any of you there.
  21. So I don't exactly have a long post about it or anything, but I wanted to the point out that the downloads section of the site is somewhat... lacking. I feel like the whole downloads section could use an overhaul.
