  1. There was no need to have Whelk be an extended fight, especially given that the reason for his existence (ATB) is no longer a thing in Brave New World.
  2. SNES9x is the standard and is really the best compromise. Some of our more... enthusiastic members will tell you to use BSNES for complete accuracy, but I don't think any emulation is going to completely eliminate any kind of graphical issues like that.
  3. Both of these things exist in the Unlockme, along with a full checklist of rare equipment by type and by area. This is, however, as was pointed out above, post-game content.
  4. Rough go at some Builds for 2.0

    Any levels above the high 30's should generally be considered busted and beyond the realms of any real strategic though. There simply aren't "builds" at that point since your level carries you in every direction.
  5. Builds Reference Text

    Doubtful until Funnyman returns. Mish started working on one awhile back, but he ended up getting more caught up with speedrun routing.
  6. Download Brave New World Here (New to Brave New World? Check out this thread for a brief explanation of what it does or dive straight into the Readme.) Hi there, everybody! First and foremost, a Happy New Year to you all. May your 2020 be pleasant and free of C.H.U.D.s (or full of C.H.U.D.s if that happens to be your thing. I don't judge.) Eight years ago, Synchysi and I started working on a little project together that would go on to become one of the greatest community efforts I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of, as well as the basis for a vast portion of my online presence. And today, I'm happy to bring you all at long last the largest update that project has ever seen. Anyone who's followed Brave New World for awhile knows that "...this is the LAST update before 2.0." has become something of a meme, and after a year-long beta cycle and nearly two years of total development, that fabled update is finally here. 2.0 features a complete re-(re-)write of enemy AI - culminating in what I consider to be the best boss fight I've ever designed - and a host of quality-of-life and other enhancements contributed in part by pretty much the entire Final Fantasy VI hacking community. A special thanks goes out to relative newcomer Bropedio, who showed up on our doorstep six months ago and without whom this release just wouldn't have happened. And of course, thanks to each and every one of you who has played through previous versions of Brave New World, all of which I consider to be trash in comparison to what we have now (seriously, 90% of me watching a 1.9 stream in the last two years has just been me apologizing and saying "that's been fixed".) And... that's about it. I've been working on this for too long and am welcoming the opportunity to take a break and move on to other projects. I hope everyone enjoys what we've put together, and I'm sorry it took this long to make happen. Hopefully, it's worth the wait. (In other news... would you like to own Brave New World as a repro cart? How about a box to stick it in? Tell 'em BTB sent ya!) What's new in 2.0:
  7. January 1, 2020: Brave New World 2.0
  8. Although the official release of 2.0 is (as of this writing) 2 days away, the current beta version has been being promoted as "basically finalized" for the past several months and a good number of you have played through it up until this point. As many of you know, the purpose of this poll isn't just a pointless GameFAQs-esque popularity contest - it's a valuable feedback tool for me to ensure that all of the characters are well-balanced and no one d00d is too strong or too weak. Given the many changes that have been implemented to characters since this poll was first implemented, I've deemed it time to retire the old thread and begin anew for the biggest update we've ever put out. So please, if you have played through 2.0 (NOT a previous version!), take a moment to cast a vote and let us know how it went. (To everyone who already voted in the other 2.0 poll, I apologize. The data was irredeemably corrupt and I decided it best to simply re-create the poll.)
  9. Breath of Fire 2 - Defiance of Fate

    The shaman system and Township are both very half-baked and need some work. If you do nothing else, unlock the shamans much earlier and do what you can to make them less mutually-exclusive. That's off the top of my head. Swing by Discord and hash things out when you start working on this. I've got more than a few things I can probably suggest once I get to thinking on it.
  10. Final Dungeon Setups?

    Group 3 fights Inferno and 2 fights Atma, not the other way around/
  11. That's not it. The issue is that the current beta is a patch on TOP of BNW code rather than integrated in. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 170 direct conflicts with Bro's code and the source.
