  1. Version 1.1.2


    I am delighted to present "Enhansa Edition," a comprehensive gameplay mod designed for the classic SNES game, "Chrono Trigger." My goal was to create an experience that preserves the essence of the original while incorporating modern RPG sensibilities. Unleash the power of time as you discover the redesigned combat mechanics, featuring an array of new status ailments and player Techs. Experience the perfect synergy of the original's nostalgic charm and innovative enhancements, allowing you to rewrite history in a truly unforgettable way. Improving on Chrono Trigger is a daunting task. The original game gets so many things right. I have strived to maintain its fast-paced combat while introducing challenges that will test your skills and perseverance. Thank you for playing, and I hope you enjoy! -inuksuk, June 2023
  2. Affectionately called: Lol New World This edition of BNW - affectionately called Lol New World - is really a "continuation" mod by an old, old veteran of the Brave New World community. It's not an official continuation of any sort. It's just an old veteran, who loves designing things too much, taking his own spin on what he sees as future development of BNW's design and balance, while trying to keep the spirit of "the mod that improves FFVI's mechanics while preserving the spirit of FFVI". As I'm a bit of a mad scientist, some things about this mod will be experimental, push boundaries, and perhaps be just plain crazy, in ways that another designer perhaps wouldn't do. However, LNW is still very much is BNW. Edgar aside, I don't think you'll really notice the changes until at least after the Magitek Factory. (Not that I'm averse to early game changers, mind you. Just nothing has happened yet, that I'm able to do, that keeps within the spirit of "FFVI with improved gameplay / mechanics / balance"). The initial impetus for this mod was simply me deciding that BNW's stamina stat is becoming far too much of a 3rd attack stat, including holding special hatred towards a couple of stam-based attacks (Atma Weapon). Therefore, as of the alpha version of LNW, many of the changes revolve around trying to push stamina into a more clearly defined defensive role. Said role revolves mostly around statuses, whether that be through an improved status evasion, a new unique Cover Shield (Paladin Kite) in the game's second half, or modifying some characters' unique stam-based mechanics to be more defensive in nature (like Relm's Interceptor). However, it comes along with an aggressive removal of many stam-based attacks, including your odds of counter-attacking no longer being based on stamina. ... The alpha version, as of right now, is imperfect, and in my eyes, incomplete, through further development is stalled while awaiting player feedback. Course, I'm Mr. Scope Creep, so many of the changes in this alpha are also just throwing in things that seem like good ideas, such as Gau's Rage odds now being stam-based (alongside a re-design of some Rages to make room for stam Gau being VERY consistent with his Rages) a re-work of Mog's Dances (which ties into the stamina changes, actually), giving Strago a Merton-lite lore affectionately named "Antipode", critical hit chance based on one's speed stat (thanks to the coder, Sir Newton Fig, for that idea), limiting the total number of any given item you may have, Drain moves not being capped by missing HP, raising the maximum Esper Level from 25 and 30 and making esper exp come faster (more fun with builds), a freaking new esper in Leviathan, and a whole lot more. The Patch Lol New World mod for BNW, forked off of the 2.1 version. Applies over a vanilla FFVI rom. The x2 speed patch (faster enemies) is included as an optional extra patch, for those who want the extra difficulty.
  3. Version 2.0.9991


    This mod is also hosted on Qhimm Forums: FF7 NT is a gameplay overhaul mod that rebalances the game, adds new content, reactivates disabled content, overhauls existing content, and comes with a no money back guarantee.
  4. Super Metroid Alter Arsenal

    Download v1b Instead of our protagonist Metroid being half Samus, half fish*, she is now part energizer bunny... and still can't crawl. Jokes aside, this mod does basically 2 things: 1. revamp the health system 2. add a few additional items Just as a heads up, the overworld is mostly intact minus a few item relocations. So finding all 105 items should be not too hard. And I doubt humanity wants to know what a kaizo version would be like. *seriously girl, how long can you breath underwater or in acid?
  5. I've no idea where the ideas came from this time but... 1) Each spell can be used once per battle but cost no AP (exception: dragon skills cost a fixed 3) With some form of scaling damage/healing power this should make more spells relevant than the newest 2-3 out of a potential 32 spell slots you have per character. Implementation is easy since one unique enemy skill can seal spells until end of battle, so the same mechanic can just be used. 2) LP replaces AP; this is kind of a secondary HP bar. If taken HP damage exceeds 50% of remaining HP you additionally take some LP damage relative to the HP damage. Fatal HP damage deals more LP damage; if at least 1 LP remains the death is avoided and some HP is recovered (this replaces the chance to survive fatal damage via guts stat). Overall this should lower the risk of getting randomly one shot just from AI roulette choosing the right/wrong action while putting a limit to how long you can get by with just taking 90% damage hits and spamming full heals while ignoring (de)buffs. 3) The condition stat (tired/fine/great, measured on a 0-255 scale) gets a bit more involvement. By default it only seems to go up (neither many battles, day/night changes nor death did decrease it in my tests) and it is mainly responsible for a massive crit rate (both weapon and spells) at the end. Resting would now increase condition to 160 if it was below. Taking damage would decrease it by 1, more if LP damage is taken. Having a bad condition would reduce the received healing, at most -30%. Not sure if any other events should influence condition tbh. 4) The whole shaman fusions feel a bit underdeveloped; half of them come only near the end of the game and besides stats and maybe changing the character's unique skill not much happens. So once you unlock fusions at all you can already use all 6 shamans for fusion but until you find the real shaman the relevant stat bonus is halved, e.g. without earth shaman you'd only get +10% defense if the real bonus was +20%. Additionally you receive a small bonus to damage dealt with attacks of the same type as a fused shaman (fire shaman boosts fire weapons and spells, dark shaman would apply that to non-elemental) and resist attacks of the element (non-elemental only -25%, other shaman -50%) but take 25% more damage from the weakness (fire shaman gives weakness to water/ice). 5) Stat growth is half fixed by character and half determined by the equipped weapon type. To that end most weapons would be equippable by all and instead of sword/bow/etc. we'd work with weapon enhancement crystals or something. E.g. a wind type weapon would give higher AGL growth but less defense and earth type would give more HP but lower AGL. 6) Bleu gets actual stat gains instead of reading from the random encounter table. 7) Permanently stat boosting items get axed; will probably replace them with some tomes that can teach spells. As written above, these are ideas. I've done some work on this already but not enough to be presentable in any way. Feel free to comment on this madness.
  6. FF1 - Adamant Edition

    general changes 12 classes selectable class change event instead grants +20 m.def reworked spell list, INT increases spell effectiveness reworked equipment list hit count is now fixed based on class, e.g. fighter has 5, rogue 8 all the bug fixes and speedup modfications including dash button buffed bosses doubled exp gain, reduced early to mid game costs most regular encounter are now runnable (all except those linked to boss formations) some small dungeon changes, mostly ice cave to prevent bypassing the Eye boss via warp spell and to get bats in earth cave out of the way classes: Fighter can use swords, axes and the heaviest armor Rogue dual wields knives, 8 hits, deals highest damage against low def targets Bl.Belt unarmed expert, highest m.def and lv50 damage RedMage can use swords and a good portion of white and black magic but has only mediocre stats WhiteMage can cast every white spell BlackMage can cast every black spell Paladin sword fighter with limited selection of white spells (up to level 5) Ninja dual wielding glass canon, can learn some black magic spells (up to level 5) Druid unarmed brawler that learns some support spells of all levels Shaman can learn every support spell Magus can learn every damage spell Sage can learn every spell but slow gain of spell charges Download
  7. Greetings

    Hi there, I am new to this forum and was introduced to it by KuroChaosWolf, who recommended that I upload my Final Fantasy 8 mod here. The Mod is called Final Fantasy 8 International GF Job System and has quite a few changes to the vanilla FF8. I have the Patch on Qhimm and Romhacking but I would love to get people's feedback here, on the changes that I made. However, I am unsure how to start a new thread in the Mod section to upload the patch. If anyone can help me out I would greatly appreciate it. For now, details on the mod can be found here:
  8. Version v10


    Super Mario RPG: Armageddon is a difficulty and content mod for Super Mario RPG. It rebalances the entire game and adds a lot more post-game content, such as more FF bosses, two boss rushes, and even some special guests! Version 10 has a Normal mode and a Hard mode. - If you want to beat the game, play the normal version! - If you've beaten the normal version and want to question your sanity, suffer at the hands of the hard version! It is not recommended to try to switch between versions in the middle. Note: Be warned that Hard mode is insanely hard, and it is highly recommended to play Normal first. Patches should only be applied to a legally obtained 1999 US version of the ROM. Compatible with SNES9x 1.53+. View the readme for more information, including links to the discord and wiki! Enjoy!
  9. Hello everyone! This is my first post here on NG+, but I'm excited to be able to share this project with this community. I've been out of the modding scene for the past few years aside from some minor projects, mostly due to work and real life stuff consuming the vast majority of my time and energy. I was working on FFTA2 for the most part until I stumbled upon the FFXII (PC) modding community. To that end, I was able to work with some of the many talented folks who are working hard on making tools and doing research on XII's inner workings. With their help, I was able to create the first difficulty/rebalancing mod for FFXII, called The Struggle for Freedom (SFF), designed for The Zodiac Age on PC, for English-speaking communities. XII, and Ivalice in general, hold a very special place in my heart. FFT was one of the first RPGs I ever played, and XII was the first numbered FF I ever finished. Even when I was younger, I always thought XII had a lot of potential and wanted to mess around with it. Why did First Aid have to suck? Why did all Black Magick have to feel the same? And why do those three invisible items added in IZJS not have models? And further, why can't every character feel unique, like they do in other FF games? Those are all some of the founding things I wanted to change with this mod, among many other changes. Here's what the biggest changes are: Enemies have 2x HP and a 1.3x boost to their other stats, making them hit harder, faster, and actually able to survive for a bit longer, without making enemies super tanky and feeling like a drag. Many enemies now use abilities that people have never even seen them use before because of the added survivability. If you use the default version of the mod, each character is assigned a set role and License Board to give them a unique role within the party. Vaan is fast and excels at evasion and combos, Fran is able to wield offensive magicks, Balthier is the best item-user, etc. There are two versions of each board for each character- a Struggle Board, and a Freedom Board. Struggle Boards are linear and have set growth, similar to FFX's Sphere Grid and FFXIII's Crystarium, and Freedom Boards are more open, similar to XII's original License Boards. For those not wanting set roles, there is also a version of the mod included that has the original 12 jobs and the PS2 version of the License Boards. Espers are now far more useful and, if you use the default SFF boards, are assigned to each character. Each character gets two Espers, each having very different playstyles and abilities that compliment their summoner, and Espers have completely revamped AI to take advantage of their skillsets. For example, Belias excels at helping Basch tank by using Bubble/Decoy on him while Belias uses magick, and Adrammelech uses Hastega/Slowga/Blindga and Thunder magicks to aid Vaan. Many abilities have been completely revamped to either fill a new niche, or to be more useful. Equipment- primarily weapons- have been greatly rebalanced. The three invisible items now have models and are more balanced to be on par with other late-game weaponry, and are now available through the Bazaar (albeit requiring rare Loot). Most late-game weaponry within each category is competitive with each other. For example, the Arcturus has enhanced Range compared to other Guns, the Fomalhaut has an increased Critical Hit Rate compared to other Guns, and the Mithuna has the highest raw Attack of all Guns. Character stats have been revamped to better fit a character's role. For example, Basch now has some of the best VIT/HP in the game as befitting his role as a tank, whereas Vaan is the fastest, and Fran has the highest Magick. What will happen in future versions? Currently, FFXII modding is still very much in its infancy. There's many things we can't do just yet, and even things like editing text is very time-consuming. To that end, there are some minor text inaccuracies and other very small bugs that are being slowly but surely snipped for future versions. We're also working on a Treasure Chest Editor, which will hopefully be done within the next few weeks. Once that's completed, treasure chests will be a 100% spawn, 100% set item, and will no longer respawn, much like traditional FF treasure chests. Those chests will have set items, generally the rarest item that would have normally been found in that chest to begin with. AI is currently not editable for enemies. Hopefully, in future versions, we'll be able to make enemy AI more interesting. I think that covers most of the bigger things... I would definitely add, however, to read the Readme/Master Guide included with the mod download prior to playing. It has a variety of useful information, as well as accurate info about Abilities/Equipment/Items that can't be found in-game at the moment due to text modding limitations. SFF isn't perfect, but I hope that it'll allow people to enjoy XII in a new way. A lot of love went into making SFF, and I'm excited to share it with others who love Ivalice as well. If anyone has any questions or feedback, feel free to ping me on Discord (eternal248#1817) or shoot me a message here. I try to be as responsive as possible, and I'd love to hear from you guys! This is my first post here, so if I've done anything wrong, just let me know and I'll fix whatever I need to. Thank you! Download it here.
  10. Version 1.658


    Chrono Cross meets Bravely Default in this re-imagination of Final Fantasy 5 with additional jobs and mechanics. 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 several additional jobs and reworks of existing jobs 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 most importantly - a New Game Plus mode!
  11. Chrono Trigger is considered easy for vetarans due to core characters having high speed making random encounter and boss fights becoming less challenging especially with haste for 24-26 Speed (excluding +3-6 speed items buff). This re-balance mod will focus on utilizing roles based on utility and speed. I'll fix other issues too so let's address issues aside the speed with each character unit in Chrono Trigger below. Crono Issues: His magic is low so Luminaire has OP power to compensate and can be broken with Magic tab. Some gameplay can be easily be done with magic tab and Crono spamming Luminaire with GoldenStud. Resolution: Fix his magic inefficiency by adding +4 Magic to one of his Sword like Frog and reduce Luminaire power. Marle Issues: Her heal is very strong to the point where Cure 2 isn't needed at all in late game. Her saving grace Haste will be obsolete with HasteHelm. She's the only one who doesn't have AoE heal too. Resolution: Reduce healing power and make Cure II as a party heal with reduced power. Make HasteHelm with reduced armor and +2 Speed instead. Lucca Issues: She's slow and her early abilities aren't really useful enough so people often use her has dual tech linker or item user. Resolution: Buff magic a bit so her usefulness will improve a bit and make buff affecting whole party. Frog Issues: His Heal ability is too OP. Aural Whirl needs Crono and Marle to perform with 2+1 MP and he can do that with only 2MP alone and can act fast. Resolution: Increase MP consumption and reduce healing factor to balance things out with Aura Whirl. Robo Issues: He have slow speed (just like Lucca) and abilities to compensate for slow speed is too OP especially healing. Not to mention he'll gain +3 speed in later side quest making him faster than Marle. Resolution: Reduce his speed by 1 so he'll truly be the slowest unit and nerf his healing teches with magic tab in consideration. Ayla Issues: She doesn't have major issues to deal with except Kiss that can make her a bit OP with magic tab. Her dual teches are quite OP too. Resolution: Reduce healing factor and other based teches for reducing dual tech damage a bit. Magus Issues: He's a solo unit without dual tech so he's pretty balanced. Nothing to be fixed Resolution: No need though I'll nerf his Dark Matter a little. Character speed re-balance If you group characters based on speed into slow/normal/fast, the pacing will be 6/8/12 making fast characters being too fast and make the game unbalanced. I will reduce speed on fast characters to make the game moderately more challenging with balanced pacing with 5-6/7-8/9-10 instead. It took me a long while to find optimal speed re-balance in various scenarios. I find it has pretty good pacing through the game without imposed difficulty. Character teches re-balance It always troubled me why Frog's Heal ability can perform healing as effective as Aura Whirl with just 2MP while Aural Whirl needs Crono-2/Marle-1 to perform the similar effects when dedicated healer like Marle needs someone to perform party heal. Robo's healing teches will easily be over powered with some speed and magic tabs so healing re-balance is the the main reason I started this mod. Slurp and Kiss can be over powered with some magic tabs too. While working on teches re-balance, I find dual malee teches being more effective than dual malee + magic teches as tier 2 spells are under powered too much. So I'll re-balance between malee and magic attack power for dual teches better. After a few test runs, I believe this tech re-balance shouldn't break the original game mechanics and improve usefulness of Marle/Lucca through the game better with improved crowed control teches. You can still beat the game with any party combination but using proper strategy and planning will be more important to win the game without imposed challenge. Items Re-balance The main reason I started items re-balance started from fixing HasteHelm that makes Marle's Haste ability being useless. I later added some bonus in some weapons helping the game balance and bring back removed items as enemy's drop at appropriate time. I tried to fix stats abusing but the only way to proper fix is removing them. I made some adjustments in items to help the game instead of those boosted stats. This mod isn't hard type mod so any player can enjoy this mod without feeling challenged or have grinding required. Please apply this IPS patch below on original unheadered ROM file to play.

  12. Version 1.1


    A hardtype hack that drastically increases the difficulty of the original game, as well as altering various aspects for the sake of balance, customization, and/or fun. A key part of the rebalance in this hack is making most Dual Techs and Triple Techs significantly stronger than in the original game, compared to Single Techs
  13. I've asked this a few years ago, but it was said that this would be impossible because of how the game was scripted. This was back when the game only existed for the ps2, however. So now I'm wondering, since a PC version exists and has for a year now, if it's possible to mod FFX-2 to be much harder than it is now? I really liked the game when I was a kid, it was challenging at the time... but now I'm not a kid, and the game's ridiculously easy. :\ I wanna play it again, but I can't stand games that are too easy. Is it possible to reduce Yuna's, Rikku's and Paine's stats by a third or half, or to simply increase the health pool and stats of enemies themselves? I hope nobody minds me asking... I checked the rules, didn't see that it was against to request or suggest a mod. I'd try myself, but I'm really stupid when it comes to scripting and computer languages. ;-;
  14. This patch is a modification of LandonRay's Final Fantasy IX Unleashed 2.0.9 mod. You can find more information on LandonRay's mod here : My patch removes all sources of AP from the game which means that you can't learn any ability. The only abilities and support abilities that you can use are from your current equipment. In the original version of the game, some items that could be bought became permanently missable or available in limited quantity after you reached a certain point in the game. These items have all been added to shops that are still open at the end of the game. Here is the list of added items : Treno (Disc 3-4) Air Racket Iron Helm Chain Mail Daguerreo (Disc 4) Zorlin Shape Diamond Armor Black Mage Village (Disc 4) Mythril Sword Diamond Sword Flame Saber Rune Blade Javelin Trident Heavy Lance Obelisk Mythril Claws Scissor Fangs Tiger Fangs Asura's Rod Fairy Flute Hamelin Octagon Rod Silver Fork Silver Gloves Diamond Gloves Bandana Green Beret Black Hood Leather Plate Chain Plate Mythril Vest Judo Uniform Gold Armor v1.1 Changes Added items to shops This patch can only be applied on the original PSX NTSC-U version of the game, it contains both Unleashed 2.0.9 and the No AP mod. Download link : To apply the patch you can use ppf-o-matic :
  15. For once in my life I want to see something finished by me (well except college, that's a different story). And I hope you guys can help me along the way. Here's the rough draft of what I'll be making with the game, hopefully more ideas will come my way: Re-balance jobs (maybe some stat improvements or downgrades) and job tree Re-balance enemies (stats, equipment and abilities) -- this is to avoid playing it only in hyper-offensive teams rather than a mix or defensive teams. Re-balance some of the equipment. Spells will generally be faster as to avoid being not used for the majority of the game. Make status spells GREAT AGAIN. (Aiming for 60-80% chances, need some insight on this) Get rid of/balance broken shit. Make all encounters go on average level with your party. (I think I'll have bosses start with +5 levels or something, thoughts?) Make NPC's controllable. Implement a Exp/JP ASM hack if needed. Credits to Emmy of course. EDIT: for now this project is on hiatus, all my focus is currently on an RPG I am making
  16. Version Creamy


    Sid Meier's Civilization is a series that requires no introduction, and its third offering is, in my humble opinion, the greatest of them all. One of my first major modding projects and arguably what set my modding career into motion was fine-tuning the rules of the base game in an attempt to forget that the expansions ever happened. There's not much to say about this one except that it's as balanced as I feel it's ever going to get; have a glance at the readme or the quick reference sheet if you want to know more, or just dive right in and let the Civilopedia be your guide.
  17. Version 1.1.0


    A small project I developed a while ago, this is a mod based on the infamous challenge-restriction run called Necrosis MO for FF7 that sets up unique conditions under which players must beat the game. The set-up is this: Every character that joins the player's party starts with 9999HP and 999MP; however, all healing has been disabled in the game meaning that any damage you take or MP you expend is permanently lost. To beat the game, you'll need to carefully manage your resources and avoid wasteful MP expenditure or excessive damage. You have free access to all commands and equipment, but bear in mind some effects are now useless (Cure, for instance, will not heal). Sources to raise stats have also been disabled. To install, extract the contents of the .zip and run the installer; specify the FF7/DATA folder of your game's installation. Remember to go into the installer's properties and unblock/run as admin if needed. If you find any bugs or discover a means with which to recover HP/MP then let me know so I can make adjustments. Good luck!
  18. Tactics Ogre: One Vision

    Version 1.08b


    TO: LUCT is no doubt one of the classics of turn based tactical games, it can boast complex storyline with a memorable cast of characters and multiple endings, as well as a deep combat system with a vast arsenal of equipment, items and spells. Its PSP port can also serve as an example of how such things should be done, with the game getting not only a much needed facelift but also a thorough redesign of most combat elements. Sadly, the game isn’t without faults, as some of the new features make it extremely prone to exploits which an experienced player can use to fully remove any challenge from the game. The main goal of this mod is to render such exploits more difficult, bringing weapons, classes and skills closer to the level they should perform at, as well as to each other. Its secondary goal is to provide tweaks to immersion, visuals and some of the more cumbersome game systems like crafting and endless skill farming. This is still a work in progress so all feedback is welcome. For installation instructions and more info check the included Readme file. Major features: Weapon, armor and consumable item rework. Equipment is more likely to do what you expect of it, 2H weapons will do a lot of damage and a tank in heavy armor will be hard to kill. Additional items, spells and skills, as well as changes to the existing ones with a focus on improving the more unappealing choices. Skills that grant stat bonuses, like Strengthen or Spellcraft, as well as static choices like Switfoot or Spell Ward were removed and compensated with higher stat differences between classes than in vanilla game. A full Finishing move rebalance. Most ways of gaining permanent stats were removed to reduce power creep in late game and increase options during early game. The power of special characters was reduced across the board, they're about on par with each other now and not overwhelmingly stronger than generics. Generic characters have more diverse templates that split into fighter, rogue, mage and generalist archetypes, their stats can differ a lot depending on which one you hire. Significantly increased the levelling speed of slow skills, like Steal or Parry. Most classes were tweaked, with emphasis on nerfing the strong ones and buffing the weak, many gained new tricks. Monsters don't scale natural armor as high as before. With the changes to skills, their new role is high HP bullet sponges that take a lot of damage and use the TP gained to spam special moves. Many items are easier to acquire, reducing the endgame tedium. Visual changes to some items, special characters, skills and spells. Streamlined crafting. Consolidated changelist available in feedback thread.
  19. Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne

    Version 1.5.1


    This is a hack of the original game designed with several primary goals in mind: Rebalance many aspects of the original game. Create a gameplay experience that is challenging to veterans of the SMT series. Add in some fresh new enemies and skills to revitalize the gameplay experience. This hack is intended for people who have already played (and generally mastered) the original game, and is designed to be played on Hard mode. For those who don’t fit this profile, or don’t want a more challenging experience than the original, then feel free to play on Normal mode. This download includes a patch with instructions to apply changes to a ROM file of SMT Nocturne. It also includes a patch for the useful Heretic Mansion tool and instructions on where to get it.

Tips: The XP gain on player demons not participating in battle and the half turn cost to swap them in makes using more than 4 demons much more powerful than in the original game. Use this to your advantage, and think beyond your 4 active party members. Be mindful of helpful consumables that can be purchased from Rag’s Jewelry. If a non-boss battle is going poorly: see if you have a Smoke Ball to use. v1.1 Changes: 1st Person view no longer requires New Game+ Patra/Me Patra now cures Charm Spectre (round 1) toned down a bit Various minor to moderate bugs have been fixed v1.2 Changes: Fixed a bug with enemy HP-based Phys damage Fixed a bug where ailments would sometimes have lower landing rates than intended v1.3 Changes: Fixed a bug where Summon would fail after using Counter v1.4 Changes: Fixed a bug related to Counter/Retaliate/Avenge Fixed a bug with Last Resort Fixed a bug with Babylon Goblet’s Panic effect not working Fixed a bug where Full Kagutsuchi encounters wouldn’t show up in the certain rooms in a few areas Anti-Elem skills now remove “Weakness” Altered a special encounter in the Third Kalpa due to grapical limitations Reworked some early game Full Kagutsuchi encounters and gave all of them the special music Removed Akasha Arts from Scathach (she can’t inherit Phys) Gave Scathach resist Ice The following bosses made a bit less difficult: Sakahagi, Mother Harlot, Spectre (round 1) v1.5 Changes: Various lesser bug fixes Gameplay and Development Videos
  20. Not Easy Being Green

    Version 0.06


    Not Easy Being Green tells the story of Verdigris after the events of VVVVVV. A new dimension has several people trapped because they have never learned or are too afraid to flip! Will Verdigris be able to save them all? This is a long player level (20x20 map) with internal scripting. Version 0.04 changes: 1. Game is now 99% stable! All sections have been tested except for part of a very hard secret section. Everything works as intended in these sections except for one cutscene which just doesn't show up for some unknown reason, and some weirdness with a scene in the secret section. 2. Toned down a lot of stupidly difficult rooms, such as those in the green ? section. 3. Fixed a few rooms that were impossible due to broken scripts, poor platform placement, etc. Everything in the normal part of the game is now possible. 4. Hellevator section is now possible! Moderately hard but loads of fun. Unfortunately the special scene (which is supposed to trigger upon beating it) doesn't show up and the characters just stand there. 5. First part of the secret section has been confirmed as possible. This is HARD (I died 1767 times in testing this). Haven't tested after that point in the secret section yet though.
  21. Version


    This mod is no longer in development. Official homepage for 1.3 is no longer available.
  22. So, as those of you in Discord may know, @Kjata has begun work on a new Final Fantasy IX mod. Right now it's kind of a brainchild, but we hope to have something out within a few months. Since I don't start work for a few weeks, I'll be helping him out with some of the legwork. Some ideas we've already been looking at: Rework damage curve Rework level curve Rework passive skills Remove fixed damage abilities If you've got any ideas, feel free to post them in this thread! Though we may not use everything, we will take it into consideration if we feel it's a good idea!
