  1. Major features: added around 70 new spells, including some physical-like techs that even Guy can learn learning new spells gives slight increases to stats modified base stats and growth of characters stat potions can no longer drop from enemies; those drop now fruits for capsule mosnter (CM) evolving added a true final boss fight with "Guard Daos" after Daos major overhaul of AI for final Sinistral fights Retry and Gift Mode are now always available Retry Mode is now Hard Mode, 2x exp/gold gain and enemies are stronger (less grind, more action) rings and rocks are now the same equip type and can occupy either of their two slots, e.g. you can wear 2 rings, 2 rocks or 1 each modified defense influence; starts with 1:1 until def = 50% raw damage then degenerates CM level is now tied to Maxim's exp/level modified CM attacks and AI slightly, e.g. Darbi can now even flee in class 5 and class 4 Flash is more likely to heal when injured class 4 and 5 CM are much less likely to use regular attacks CM can freely switch between all 5(!) classes once unlocked instead of being locked to class 1-4 OR 5 (S) Witch Ring now increases MP as advertised 25% of ATP bonuses from equipment get also added to INT 25% of DFP bonuses from equipment get also added to MGR note: NOT compatible with vanilla savegames!
  2. It randomizes the randomness? I would guess this is more an option for advanced FF6 nerds - those that know how to abuse the default RNG, e.g. when encounters happen, how to force certain drops? The most obvious change might be encounter distribution; you'd probably still have the same amount of total encounters if you loop once through the RNG fully but with this they might be distributed differently, like the first 5 encounter come very soon and then you see a long time nothing. If FF6 has a way to seed the initial RNG forcibly this shuffle would make that technique void. Just a guess though.
  3. Softlock is "easy" - the ghostship+volcano sequence resource management on hard is a bit easier and harder; easier because chest drop rate is higher easier because a bad streak sends you to the title screen instead of into the reds harder, well obviously because of how fast the bad streak can happen
  4. Current Version: v1.042, 2017/11/04 Sister thread (probably down forever) Major features: Equipment offers various bonuses instead of a simple attack and defense progression Rebalanced classes, stats and spells, almost everything is usable now Modified formulas that keep even high level techs useful Expanded inbattle options with running, regular strong attacks and counter techs Passive MP regeneration with high cost spells: be smart with your magic Extensive boss AI changes Accelerated level curve: from class changing at the earliest mana stone to facing the final boss at the level cap Transformed the shield slot into a second accessoire slot for everyone, shields count as regular accessoires Increased inventory capacity to 20 per item type instead of 9 Tons of bugfixes ranging from agility stats not working to Kevin's wolfform stacking attack bonuses 5 difficulties to choose from, covering the spectrum from "easier than vanilla" to "Atlus would be proud" Roadmap until v1.0 Potential ideas towards v2.0
  5. The default difficulty being the hardest was a conscious decision. Basically you are 99% certainly required - thanks to limitations of both the base game and my hacking skills - to interact with the documentation, if only to find out how to open the menu now... so the default difficulty being the highest is my little test (a.k.a. dick move): did you understand what you read. If I would set it to a different default, it'd be easy since that is closest to what vanilla would be. Well, money is a topic of its own; since you can spent money only once, either on new gear or consumables, those that "know" what they need are clearly at a huge advantage here. Though the items (or money by selling them) you get from chest is supposed to be counted into that as well, so... dunno, I'd probably have to make equipment super-cheap across the board and reduce boss gold? but then you can just buy the perfect gear setup for each boss which is something I don't want either. The money game falls apart mid game from increasing gold gains (mostly bosses, mid game is a huge boss rush), less need to buy new equipment since 90% of the stuff was already available and the increasing chance that you have someone that knows heal light to cut down on healing expenses. I see no good solution for this.
  6. entirely passive, doesn't stack
  7. When the hate meter reaches the point where the boss would normally use a counter move, you get a random chance that he will not use his counter move; either way the hate value drops down to 0.
  8. or light Kevin or light Charlie would have been choices as well for that
  9. I think it should affect them - is your level at least on par with them? That was a limitation in the original as well.
  10. -intentional, the same spell exists outside AC as well; the whole set of spells it belongs to is part of a joke against the people of that town -I think that is vanilla behaviour -doesnt really matter, cm exp/level is tied to maxim; i think what happens there is that you have the exact exp that an untied cm would be 1 level higher - afaik they have a separate table with the required exp to next level that needs ever so slightly less, like 3 exp difference at lv20
  11. As a sidenote: "greater resistance" was "immunity" in the original version. Regular resistance modifes damage with atk -25%, def +50% (vanilla had just atk -50%, this was never on any enemy, only on heroes) greater resistance modifes damage with atk -50%, def +50% (vanilla had atk = 0) in the damage = (atk - def) * M calculation
  12. The main ideas were to make the battles more dynamic and give each character more, well, character. As a result of that every character has now access to an individualized job list of 21 out of total 31 jobs (freelancer is NOT available) while each job level now has a permanent impact on a character's stats. For example klutz Bartz can not be a chemist and Lenna hasn't in her to go Berserker. More dynamic battles are achieved via !Brave, !Def and field elements. Move a future turn to now with !Brave or take two turns at a later point with !Def while modifying the field elements to your liking with each skill or ability used. Changed field elements affect damage, healing and status effect chance. major features: all party members can be renamed at any time difficulty can be adjusted via in-game menu elements play a larger role extending to every item, ability, status effect and monster rebalance of equipment, spells, abilities and enemies instead of helm, armor and relic you can now equip 3 relics relics add a mix of resistances, weaknesses and power bonuses to same-element attacks spells scale with weapon power keeping them relevant until the end spell lists have been altered, e.g. Fire1/2/3 was reduced to just Fire and there are now new spells replacing the missing spells items are not consumed but introduce a cooldown on !Item, !Mix, !Drink and !Throw auto-heal some HP after battle victory (trade-off for disabled potions) ATB does not proceed until the currently active actor is finished with their turn, but then moves instantly to the next event saving is always enabled most importantly - a New Game Plus mode!
  13. v0.611 added info dumps to Beginner's House replaced evade% in equip/status with magic attack power added max job levels to status menu added experimental faster dash: hold Y instead of B to run even faster pierce now also makes attacks ignore up to 20 (magic) defense after other reductions like elemental weakness weakness hits against targets with excessive defense bypass some defense poison ticks against heavy targets get more infrequent over time, refreshed by applying poison again renamed MagicAmp to MightAmp MightAmp now also boosts non-elemental magic by 33% and weapon attack by 25% nerfed spellblade additional element factor from 2 to 1.25 changed spellblade to actually add its element to the weapon's base element instead of only roling a second element check increased spellblade/tempr from flat +20 to +50% attack bonus added +20 flat attack to spellblade/flare increased double grip bonus for weapon attack from +25% to +33% increased double grip bonus for magic attack from +12% to +17% weapons now also have a weight weight recalculation is now also active during battle fixed in-battle calculation for evade reading wrong values fixed text for newly learned abilities fixed miscalculated status durations, e.g. underflowing paralyzation against bosses for infinite stun fixed certain in battle events not firing if the boss is stunned fixed several issues with the sandworm boss fight like too high HP, not having weaknesses, not giving exp, ... fixed !mix resulting in garbage spells "fixed" exploit with old status that reset old-penalty on equip change to 0; base stats now drop by 1 for player characters each tick decreased SolCanon HP, changed type from Holy+Wasser to Holy+Ice decreased Launcher (SolCanon add) HP, changed type from earth to water enemy resistances become strong resistances on difficulty 1-3 or absorb in New Game Plus Galuf lost access to BlackMage, instead gains Arcanist Faris lost access to TimeMage, instead gains Mimic MP gain from Ethers and Elixirs via !X-Item is now reduced to 33% shields can now not only remove their element from weaknesses but also upgrade the resistance to greater resistance
  14. If it ended up on Lise you were semi-lucky that the data block in the 7FEExx area was one of your characters. As I wrote, character data can "freely" move around. You could have hit a "blank", a sprite, AI (=bye bye game), etc.
  15. Oh, that is easy. The Bishamon (weapon id 0x67) has copied the property of the Protect Ring (armor id 0x67), not that it should but... it does. The cheats for this are NOT simple!! SD3 moves its data around sometimes when it feels like it (world map transition, save game load). You first need to know which slot Hawk has when you chose your party. With that knowledge you have to read the value from: 7E2040 - 1st hero 7E2042 - 2nd hero 7E2044 - 3rd hero 2 bytes though. Common values would be ED60, F060, F360. Let's take the first one. You have to add 0x00BC to it and put a 7F before the first value to get the weapon id. This result should be 7FEE1C for the weapon id. Sorry, as I said, SD3 is not simple.
  16. I think I'll just throw "evade%" out of the status/equip menu, magic evade isn't displayed either, instead I'll display there magic attack since that is not quite as straight forward as the random-dodge stats. Plus there's tons of stuff evade doesn't work against anyway.
  17. single job mode or the sage item from the first shop would be your options then
  18. Wouldn't that make her more a summoner than a blue? Or a Tamer/Trainer/Beastmaster? Fire costs 0 is correct DUMMYDUMMY is just a text issue - you should still have learnt Recycle there - passive abilities are special snowflakes that need to named 3 times and I forgot one ofc...
  19. are you on v575?
  20. You have to make sure none of your current equipment makes you immune to corobokkle status, e.g. moon ring, gold shield, the 258 gold armors from Forcena (e.g. Hauberk).

  22. Because Zsnes is quite buggy. Half the stuff there runs on prayers not code. And several ingame instructions are just inaccurate workarounds which yields strange results as you saw here.

  24. For your own sake don't use that.
  25. 3. Oh wait, I misread that. I read all jobs period. He should have access to 7 jobs, but wind crystal technically gives 8. Everyone else has 5/8 there, he 7 - it just happened, it didn't really watch for when the jobs get available, just that each char has at least 4 jobs after the first crystal and the jobs fit somewhat thematically. Job selection can still be changed though. 4. not implemented job. To figure out which are just check the ability menu, you'll see the job main ability above the section where you select your 3 abilities; if it is just "!" it is a placeholder job. Otherwise it'll be like !White or whatever the job has
