I've made some balance tweaks and added in some important features.  Celes's Runic doesn't require her to cast it every turn to keep it going, implementing Hatzen's new patch to the mod.  The Colosseum now allows you to choose what your hero will do in battle, implementing another Hatzen patch.  Blitz and Swdtech have been tweaked, along with many other bosses.  Some important WoR items are now gained by killing bosses instead of finding them in more dangerous areas.  Maybe the most important tweak: The auction house now sells debilitators for almost 10 mirryon darrahs.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Japanes Modifications?
« on: April 01, 2012, 12:06:31 pm »
What do Japanese people call game modifications? We say mods or hacks. Anyone know what they say? Anyone know of any mods Japan has done or any websites to check them out?

Hey all,

I see that people keep downloading it and I've had 2 or 3 people give me positive feedback about their playthroughs, so here's a release of some changes I've made:

Note--There is no panzy mode for this newer version (Why? Because 4 extra hours of tedious stat changing isn't worth it right now.)



Heroes
+HP Curve changed to add more hp from levels 80-99. Base maximum HP from ~4800 to ~6400
+Gogo mPwr 103-->90 due to X-magic available as a command. This will not affect saves, which must be edited with a save editor.
+Cyan's natural defense/mdef switched with Celes. This will not affect saves, which must be edited with a save editor.
+Firedance changed to Chi Strike, 4x 255BP physical attack, learned at lvl 60.
   +Animation changed for Chi Strike to a quadruple tiger strike
+Aurabolt now pearl and fire elemental
+Spiraler now based on HP and learned at level 19

News Submissions / Re: ROM Hacks: Fantasy Tactics 1.3 RELEASE!
« on: December 11, 2011, 11:06:36 pm »
I'm very excited about this and glad you have both a normal type and easy version available. FFT has one of the best stories ever in my opinion.

5
Appreciate the feedback. I was actually looking at my planning calculations today and did some testing. Regular fight does fine around level 20, but in certain areas/levels (The Mtek Factory) there are monsters with higher physical defense in general. Once you get level 3 magic, regular fight is less powerful but items and physical damage skills counteract that. So far I haven't found a big need for change but I'm taking a long hard look at things, and have little time per week to do it.

6
BALANCE ALERT: I've been getting feedback from a player that physical damage is underpowered in the WoB. I haven't played through the WoB since many versions ago but from checking my save states this seems to be true for many of the areas. I of course have no time and so may just do a quick fix by changing WoB monster armor if I'm sure this is a problem.

Edit: Okay, I'm taking a harder look at this. Magic in the WoB is essentially a special move, is much rarer, more expensive, etc. I of course considered this before but I'm not convinced that magic is making physical damage uncompetitive. Much deliberation to ensue...

7
New version uploaded -- with a brand new "Panzy Mode" where monsters have 25% less hp and 25% less damage. Now even your disturbed 10 year old brother can win this game. Actually, he probably still can't.

For all versions, the XP curve has changed so that leveling in the WoR is faster (Especially from 30-40, and 75-90). (Ending exp = 10 million instead of 15)

Some later bosses have also been heavily improved upon to make the WoR much more interesting

Other minor tweaks/balances/fixes done as well

This will probably be the last big change to the game. From here will be balances or fixes as needed/possible.

I'm dreaming of touching up the script after seeing Pandora's Box's excellent job.

Returners Prevail,
-gogo13

8
The dialogue, as of v1.19, is broken for the beginning of the game. I will be looking into this, with the possibility of having to redo all of my changes for about two versions back. I have good documentation of almost everything I did, but won't have the time for another 3 weeks minimum, and minor tweaks I did not document are forgotten.

When I load (via srm save points) to Banon and the returners, the dialogue works fine. Before then, it is a recurring two pieces of dialogue. When I load save states past that point, the dialogue works fine also.

I believe the problem was due to expanding the ROM for more battle scripts, but it's possible it was the code changes I made.

May 30, 2011, 08:40:21 pm - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
Did I say 3 weeks? I meant 2 days. Version 1.20 is pending approval. It is the fixed version of 1.19, and now everyone should be able to play, with patches for all 4 combinations of ROMs available (1.0/1.1,Headered/Unheadered).

9
lol, *65535* GP, thanks.

May 16, 2011, 06:18:54 pm - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
I've gotten 2 e-mails of people patching and having bad dialogue. One of the persons used what seemed to be the matching ROM version and still had the same problem. I had this problem when trying the 1.0 ROM, but it worked for me on the 1.1 ROM I have. I hope everyone is using headered 1.1's, and I will look into this as soon as I can, hopefully with a conclusion after this weekend.

10
I have uploaded v1.19 and hopefully it will be accepted this time.

The biggest improvements were to Dance, Morph, Safe/Shell, and late game spells. Now every hero's skill, with the exception of Runic and Steal, is very useful until the end of the game.

The Changes:

+ROM Expanded for more AI scripts

Monsters
+Many WoB monsters after the 3-party fight with Kefka have 15% reduced magic defense
+AI changes to some monsters/bosses
+Hidon now gives treasure, the Wraithsoul shield

Heroes
+Umaro's BP was nerfed to 1 (he still does tons of damage)
+Gogo Vigor 69 ---> 43
+Gogo BP 20 --> 1
+items that give both safe and shell are unequippable by Mog without the Merit Award
+Aegis unequippable by Shadow and Relm
+ZephyrShield now equippable by less heroes (Yes, Relm)
Note:Changes to some hero stats are not retroactive and can be changed via a savestate or SRAM editor

Hero Spells
+Safe & Shell now block half the damage instead of 1/3
00020EF8 A9 AA ---> A9 7E ---> (Multiply damage by 170 / 256) to 126/256
+Exsicc is now called Sunder, and goes through runic
+Ultima ---> 15 SP, no longer "manual party select" (forced to hit all)

0020F15 80 0B BRA $0D22   (Skip morph if physical attack) ---> EA EA (Physical damage
taken while morphed is also affected)

Hey everyone, the last update was denied, so the changes since April are not included yet, in case anyone is confused. I'm working on more big changes and will be releasing a new version ASAP.

You Will See:
Terra's Morph having no timer, but double damage is taken
New items
Improved Monsters
Decreased mDef for many WoB monsters
And much more....

Thanks; I have strategy very much in mind, which is quite apparent imho when looking at the changes to items, abilities, monster AI, etc.

I have made another cool change, but not released in a new version yet:

+I have replaced the item ability for "Safe" "Shell" and "Rflect" when low HP into a mystery spell, Life3/heal type spell, and Quick. These new kickass desperation spells will be put on items for a future version.

One of the recent patches also made a slight change to a spell used by Tunnel Armor, which made him impossible. This has been fixed, and a few other slight changes have been made:

+Exsicc is now called Sunder, and goes through runic
+Allo Ver uses a different spell instead of Disaster
+Umaro's BP was nerfed to 1 (he still does tons of damage)
+Umaro's boss battle script slightly changed
+X-Potions heal 100% HP instead of 50%
+Quasar ---> No Split Dmg
+Quasar now casted by Hidon
+Ultima ---> 15 SP, no longer "manual party select" (forced to hit all)
+Merton ---> no longer unavoidable
+Meteor ---> unavoidable
+Rapture 80-->90 SP
+Hidon and Hidonites give XP
+Soulsavers (Wrexsoul) give 500 XP
+Some minor battle script changes
+Another counter attack added to final Kefka
+Natural magic progression has changed to make the early game more exciting

Other possible changes in the future:

>There might be a boost to Terra's stats if I can't find a way to make Morph last longer or recover faster.
>Endgame statistics still need to be studied/tested more for perfect balance, although it is definitely playable atm. However, differences in armor may be narrowed and the utility of top-tier spells may be adjusted to balance the need of kickass power vs. tactical use for each ability/hero
>Dance can apparently be changed with the new editor, and although I am afraid it may be risky to do so, Mog's dances could use a boost, especially Snowman Jazz, because it is the only one learned much later in the game. His stumble chance will also be obliterated as well. It is probably very possible to make Mog learn some dances at much later stages in the game as well, and I'm looking into that as an exciting possibility for powerful endgame dances.
>The WoR Auction House should be changeable to selling only purchasable items instead of the non-winnable auctions. If implemented correctly, the items I add will cost 500,000 1,000,000 and 9,999,999
>The relics Beads and MagiBrooch are uncompetitive and could use a boost/replacement
>Item placement in WoR dungeons may be slightly rearranged to match risk vs. reward better
>The progression of how Lores are learned could probably use at least some tweaking
>Cyan's dispatch may become physical damage
>Cyan's level 5 swdtech may need some fixing
>More spells, items added if possible
>One of the top-tier multi-elemental spells needs a soundfix (but which sound to use....)
>Much much more, of course, but too conceptual or detailed to mention

Thanks for the the feedback and for playing

I believe it's Megahit in the FF3usME editor, so check it's properties there. It probably pierces armor.

But it would be easier to have the monsters cast the spell antidote on themselves, instead of the item problem.

16
Antidote can be scripted to be used whenever poisoned or on a per turn basis or otherwise.

A problem is that your 25-33% reduction might be fair now, but poison is something that should be useful throughout the entire game. Also, like I mentioned before, I'm near positive that poison *originally* uses the same formula as regen, but with damage incremented over time, so changing regen must also be considered.

Another solution would be to look at all of the monster formations, and make sure half of the monster types of each formation are immune/absorb poison.

17
Just to make things clear, if anyone was having problems playing it before, the latest patch should be working fine. PM me of course if you're having problems.

18
I'd go with the antidote battle script, because changing damage formulas changes all the other expectations related to that damage.  What's more, if poison shares the formula with regen, that complicates things further.  However, if poison is doing more damage than heroes should at level 50, I would change the formula to save the entire damage curve.

19
6 Had some good steals from bosses, but only on maybe 25% of them

20
Are the stealable items anything you can't end up buying, and if so, how many?  I would just steal casually whenever Locke's round came up, so didn't get much items out of it.
