  1. @Mishrak I believe you had a different experience with this, yes?
  2. Download Brave New World Here (New to Brave New World? Want to know what it's all about? Check out the Readme here or our list of Frequently Asked Questions.) It's that time again, my friends! After a beta cycle that went on much longer than we were expecting, Brave New World 1.9.0 is officially released today. The major features of this update include tying the game's cover and counter-attack mehcanics to stamina (the 'ol tank & spank) courtesy of Seibaby and one of the holy grails of FF6 modding in the form of GrayShadow's in-battle spell patch. There's also a lot more goodies in the Unlockme, including boxart courtesy of Shane at RetroGameCases and a little something special to snap into from our good friend Bauglir. As always, many of the changes in this update are largely inspired by the feedback I get from players who stream on Twitch or post videos on Youtube. I take something away from every playthrough I watch, and more and more with each passing update, Brave New World truly is the work of the amazing community that surrounds it. I can honestly say that the humble project Synchysi and I began work on over six years ago would never be what it is today without all of you, and for that and much else I am eternally grateful. I don't know what the future holds for this mod, but I am certain that you all will be a huge part of it. What's new in 1.9.0: Brave New World is now available as a reproduction cartridge courtesy of our good friends at Retro Circuits. And if liking things on Facebook is your bag, baby, then by all means go nuts.
  3. I see the problem. That will be fixed in the next release.
  4. I asked you about it in Discord the other day because the last I heard from testing of your patch, it wasn't working.
  5. Vegetable stir-fry with extra Monsantos and chemtrails. Can post the (rather simple) recipe if anyone thinks it looks tasty.
  6. That may be something worth fixing.
  7. This would be something for @Synchysi to look at.
  8. I'd prefer to be stingy with stamina-based attacks. They're certainly not something everyone needs, or else the characters that do have them become much less unique and stamina builds end up universally better than others (which they already are in many cases).
  9. Edgar already has a stamina-based weapon; making it behave correctly with Jump is backburner'ed wishlist item.
  10. Exactly what the title says - which character got the most use and/or contributed the most in your last playthrough? It'll be interesting to see how the results of this poll differ from the one on the ID forums, which is is somewhat corrupted by the fact that it's been up since forever and most of its votes were cast based on older versions of Brave New World.

  12. Yes, he does. I'm guessing Strago was blind at the time.
  13. Actually, it's pretty common to hear people say that they lost interest in FF6 around the WoR. It seems like a frequent stopping point for a lot of players. The hard genre shift doesn't seem to resonate so well with people expecting a straight-up JRPG, and the character homogeneity really starts coming into play around then. God help you if you're a completionist. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it. Toss a vote in the MVP thread if you haven't already. Thanks for playing.
  14. The Mystery Egg does not affect rods.
  15. To address the Holy Lance in particular, random spellcasts on spears would be overpowered in the context of Brave New world because random casts will also inherit the damage multiplier from jump, which in the case of spears is 2 instead of 1. This is the equivalent damage boost of a MP-fueled auto-crit from a rod, which has the downside of requiring the user (invariably a squishy) to be in the front row. The Holy and Flare casts from the Apocalypse/Illumina had to be hard-coded to ignore multipliers or else they would have been severely overpowered.
  16. Counter chance and cover chance are tied to stamina, so... well, technically yes.
  17. Yeah, pretty much anything involving Palidor is just in *shrug* territory. The Chakra formula in the Printme was mentioned earlier; I will correct it in the next update.
  18. That's fine with me. @seibaby can make the necessary adjustments.
  19. Note for next version: Kaiser should turn into a save point.
  20. Were there any observed instances of slowdown in just regular BNW, or was it only with the randomizer applied?
  21. Holy shit, I thought this was an April Fool's joke.
