  1. There goes the neighborhood

    The 2.0 is technically still in beta (super late beta, but beta), and it's only available on the discord. So if you want in on it now just join the Discord and bug people.
  2. You need to make a .cue file and launch that in Mednafen. To do this you'll simply open notepad and put the following text in. Replace the name in the quotes to match the exact name of the iso file you have. FILE "gamename.iso" BINARY TRACK 01 MODE2/2352 INDEX 01 00:00:00 You'll then save it with the same name as the iso but with .cue on the end (don't save it as a text file, windows should see it as a CUE file when you're done). Personally when I use Mednafen I use Mednaffe for it, provides a GUI which I find easier to work with. That being said, whichever you're using you'll need to use cue files. You should end up with a bios folder in your Mednafen folder. For that you'll want to find SCPH5500.BIN, SCPH5501.BIN, and SCPH5502.BIN and put them in that folder.
  3. You mention ePSXe a lot with your testing. Last I knew ePSXe wasn't the most accurate of emulators. For mod making it's 'usually' best practice to use the most accurate testing method you can, be it somehow getting it onto hardware or checking it on an emulator with a focus on accuracy. From a quick search Mednafen appears to be the go-to option for accurate emulation. Would you be able to see if your iso, that works on ePSXe on your phone, also works on Mednafen? It's possible that your spritework ended up being something the PSX can't 'actually' support and that it only works on ePSXe due to inaccuracies.
  4. Actually, the issue (If I recall correctly) is that the queued action results in the Rage status being set again. This causes the Rage 'status' to be reapplied and Gau keeps doin' his thing.
  5. Download and patch directly onto your BNW 2.0 ROM. The password for it is the same as the BNW unlockme password 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) V5: Fixed a text error reported by @thzfunnymzn way back in February where HP EL gains were still displaying old values V6: At the request of @BTB I have edited the config screen to reflect that you are playing Nowea Hard Type. I did this all by myself and there's absolutely no way I screwed something up in the mean time. V7: Standardized HP and MP ELs, now all HP and MP ELs give +20 (if with another stat) or +40 (if just giving HP or MP) Added 4 new items. 3 are rare steals and 1 is a Colosseum trade. Steals were only edited on current humanoid random enemies that had steals previously. Note: This version uses item indexes 16, 60, 66, and 247. In 1.9 and 1.10 these indexes are not used, but other versions are not guaranteed. In addition, for maximum compatibility, these new items don't have descriptions 2.0: Added more easter egg weapons, some as rare drops and some as rare steals from humanoids. Note that these weapons still do not have descriptions. These added weapons use item slots that BNW 1.9 uses, but 2.0 doesn't. This effectively means that NHT 2.0 is for the BNW 2.0 line only. Altered and added formations, expect to see some new enemy combos and enemies where you don't expect. Sometimes this even works in your favor Added a password requirement to access the patch, the password is the same as the BNW unlockme. I don't want people playing NHT as their first BNW experience in general. Now every item and relic shop has Warp Whistles or Back Guards (respectively).
  6. Nowea Hard Type

    Updated link with some more fixes. Removed an easter egg item that didn't function properly. Fixed some broken formation/pack data, etc.
  7. While not intended, it's a harmless side effect to the Imp effect and a known issue
  8. Nowea Hard Type

    Quick v3. One hidden weapon had its power reduced by 30%
  9. Yes. If you haven't yet speak up in the discord and get a red or orange name to give you a role.
  10. Nowea Hard Type

    Fixed fire spell, no other spells appeared to have the issue after a quick once-over.
  11. Nowea Hard Type

    NHT 2.0 release. Main post edited with download link. Please be courteous and considerate of mainline BNW testing still being done for BNW 2.0. Added more easter egg weapons, some as rare drops and some as rare steals from humanoids. Note that these weapons still do not have descriptions. These added weapons use item slots that BNW 1.9 uses, but 2.0 doesn't. This effectively means that NHT 2.0 is for the BNW 2.0 line only. Altered and added formations, expect to see some new enemy combos and enemies where you don't expect. Sometimes this even works in your favor Added a password requirement to access the patch, the password is the same as the BNW unlockme. I don't want people playing NHT as their first BNW experience in general. Now every item and relic shop has Warp Whistles or Back Guards (respectively). Known issue: The config screen version display looks janky when playing with any of the RC patches. This should resolve itself when 2.0 is out.
  12. The Developer's Hand

    Just to nitpick, the next Metroid game after Super Metroid was Metroid Prime. A really good Metroidvania in its own right
  13. For this one, testing with a battle at the start. If Biggs/Wedge use a Magitek command it's writing %5 dried meat into the inventory. If Terra uses anything or if anyone defends/row then it's adding %5 Slim Jims. Some discord chat is saying they're getting items as soon as the battle starts, personal testing hasn't had an item show up until after one of the PCs does something ETA: personal testing on RC12-a, others on base RC12
  14. To add onto this, the lag appears to roughly be "wait until damage/healing text vanishes, then continue". It causes some lagginess for everything, but is most noticeable when dual wielding. Example during DW: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/160253567012306945/550888223077826571/2019-02-28_21-52-42.mp4
  15. Terra's attack in the flash back doesn't have a name. She also doesn't move at all during the scene. (Fixed in the next RC) The wolves in the Captain battle don't seem to have names. (No fucking clue on this one. Anyone got a screenshot?)
  16. RC4 (due to RC5 hardlocking at airship) As soon as one of the doors changed this happened. Getting a random encounter fixed it. Movement did not seem to be altered, only graphics.
  17. Interacting with airship controls in RC5 (WoR) hardlocks the game. (Synchysi: This is caused by the usME issue mentioned below.)
  18. World of Ruin, Serpent Trench occasionally has encounters that are empty. South Figaro Cave, last room before Figaro Castle, has the same issue for every encounter I had in it. (Will be fixed in RC-6) In addition, something seems to break for XP upon reaching level 20. An encounter with Celes/Sabin granting 525 total XP only took her from 121 xp to level to 108 xp to level. (Added to bug list) Some formations have monsters partway off the screen during pincers. One example: FC 3x Djinn formation (Will need to start a section documenting all weird pincer formations - keep these coming)
  19. Save state request

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/1yu9sa7j3kfbqdt/Saves.zip?dl=0 Here's a set of .srm files. I'm not sure how exactly Retroarch handles SNES saves as I don't use it for SNES, but for SNES9x, simply drop the .srm file into the saves folder where your emulator should be and rename it to match the ROM's name. These are all complete saves, as in I gathered everything one could at the time and got all the rages etc. In addition, Shadow is alive in the saves. I'd recommend grabbing the one that's furthest along that matches what you've done but doesn't have anything finish you didn't do (alternatively grab the .srm with the first save after getting the airship) Also, I'd say to stop using save states for anything other than emergency saves... But that's just me.
  20. Missable WoB rages

    Io is encountered in the Kefka battle area, where the ice dragon wanders around

    But that's all we do anyway.
  22. Review of v1.9

    First I'd like to say that this is a nice review, giving honest and opinions that are quite fair. It's also clear that you put thought and formatting into it (even something simply like green/red text). I'm not going to nitpick any opinions or anything here from you, but I'd like to address some statements you've made as far as factual accuracy goes and possibly explain some things. So, here's how nATB works. It only fills if you are in a top level menu and there are no animations being played. So the menu tricking you were doing doesn't actually accomplish anything. To reiterate, being in a submenu pauses everybody's ATB. When a monster's ATB is paused so is yours. The bets not feeling like upgrades anymore is by design. From a personal stance I kinda wish that the trades were completely public knowledge. In addition the player either has to already know what both items do or consult the printme to see what they're actually getting. As far as having to waste time on battles, I recall BTB has mentioned that he's just going to make all of the Colosseum battles much easier ones. To add on to the "very few bets felt like straight upgrades" thing. There's an element of 'pick your poison' here. You either have to make the trades into upgrades, which basically makes it "just mindlessly do them and move on" or you have to make them not upgrades, to where a lot of players don't really see the point (especially when the details of what you'll end up getting and the full trade 'map' isn't visible in-game) Lastly, I feel like you know this one. But I feel it worth stating that the gear swapping was removed because it didn't work properly with how BNW puts the dual wield and two-hand properties on the weapons themselves instead of outside relics. Last I heard @GrayShadows was working on a method to allow people to swap a weapon/shield out, but it would cost a turn. In regards to these, they scale off Magic and Stamina respectively. Chakra/Mantra are(were?) getting buffed a bit. That being said, it's a hard sell for them unless you're building Edgar or Sabin very heavy on Magic/Stamina. Since you did more 'general/well rounded' style of builds I can see how they'd seem weak.
  23. As far as including summon info in game, as far as I remember that was unfortunately removed when the Esper equip bonuses were added. The response is likely going to be something about space (either in the overall banks or for the individual frames... or both). Regarding the difficulty, you mentioned the rats going at you when you only have Terra. Early game enemies will behave more aggressively when the party is higher level. This is so that they still do something noticeable on return trips. A few examples are Wild Rats, Leafers, Repo Man, and Mammoth. All of these monsters have 'extra' attacks that they'll start tossing out after you reach level 7. Advice on handling that would largely be to avoid grinding unless you find you really need it.
  24. The equipping issue comes down to how the game handles the dual-wield and two-hand effects. Because BNW has them on weapons it makes it so that the swaps don't properly swap those effects around. If that part gets fixed then it'd be possible to implement. I believe BTB has talked about allowing it to be done but it taking a turn for the swap to happen
