Some time ago, I decided to replay Breath of Fire 2, and I borrowed a friend's GBA version, to see what differences it had, which are not many. Not even the script is changed, besides some very little things.
Holy crap, when Capcom is lazy, it's REALLY lazy.
But anyway, the post is not about that. One of the features that seem to be liked from that port is the x2 Exp and Zenny, removing a lot of grinding from the game and making the random battles a little more worth of your time.
I have seen a lot of comments about wanting (some of them sounded more like demanding, but whatever) this feature for the Super Nintendo version of the game in different places, even more because of the fantastic Retranslation made by Ryusui and co. that makes the retranslated version of the game the definitive one.
At first I was messing with the rom to find the spell table for the characters, but then I thought: Maybe I can change the exp/zenny thing!
And it was easier than I thought, actually.
So here it is:https://www.dropbox.com/s/dv1y3aubwarqxyq/Exp%20Zenny%20x2.rar?dl=0
This will ONLY double exp and zenny from monsters. If the monsters gave no exp or zenny, they'll still give nothing.
This is for a game without a header, and is compatible with the Retranslation.
Although if you want to use it with a retranslation you should have an SRM save file that made the "translation test" before.
Is as easy as just booting the retranslated game, let it do it's own thing, and when it's finished and got to the main menu of the game, close it and patch the ROM with the exp/Zenny x2 patch.
Or just use your previous save file.
I will do more tests later, but if someone is interested in it you can give it a try before uploading it to the database.
