Seconded to vivify93's choices. Although mine is probably not as self-serving.  ;)

Frue Lufia is all I ever wanted from Lufia 2. I hope one day a Hacker takes Lufia 3 and removes the randomly generated dungeons in place of some nice custom dungeons. I feel the randomized roguelike factor made less people like it which sucks because it had a nice follow up story to 1 :3

ARTEMIS, I just wanted to thank you so very much for all the hard work and dedication. I was born in '80, so these games were my childhood, and being able to relive them in their FULLEST GLORY is unreal. I played the roms a while back since I've not had the cart in ages. Way back when, I saw mention of your patches in a GF thread, but never bothered. Recently I decided to pick up the game again and decided to hunt down the patches. Imagine my surprise when not only are there current valid links from which to download them, but you are STILL working on them and updating them, what, almost TEN YEARS LATER?!?! I would love to buy you a beer my man, or even a steak dinner for the hard, thankless work.

Also, thanks to you as well vivify93 for spreading the love and keeping the patches alive.

I literally made an account here just to thank you guys and let y'all know how much you are appreciated! :woot!: :woot!: :woot!:

Now, off to have fun with these things and see how much better the game is! Incidentally, I believe the rom I used was [.U], but only 1.83mb total size, but seems to be working well so far, I an assuming the smaller size is due to being headerless?

Glad you like it, hopefully this actually will be the final version, finally... :)

However, 1.83 mb is quite a little too less. Header only makes 512 byte, so I guess your ROM actually is bigger. Besides, these ROMs don't have such non-smooth size number. Whatever, as long as it works...

When i use these patches to the no-intro rom i apply ipsbehead to them first. Otherwise it freezes some-when in the intro i think. I could also apply a new header to the rom with nsrt, but between the hack and the rom not being recognized for scanners i much prefer the hack (not that any scanner recognizes hacks anyway, because romhacking doesn't distribute a .DAT - like it should).

Well it seems to be working perfectly so far, I'm at the sky tower boss at the moment, even with grinding I steadily either get stomped out or my CM dies, these bosses are NO JOKE! Definitely way more fun than just breezing through that's for sure! I'm playing on replay mode too, I don't know what I'd do on start mode or even worse the monster buff patch. Some people must be gluttons for punishment LOL!  :cookie: 's for everyone!

Ok, so I am STILL playing this gamefile because i was insane enough to stop and hit the ancient cave while i still have Dekar. I have a question Artemis... is it still possible to get the gold/silver eyes from the respective dragons? I read the patch notes where you changed the drops to the rings, but I am unsure as to whether those are the only drops now, and the eyes have to be found from chests (I assume, as I've already found a silver eye from a blue chest). I also noticed the dragons are now immune to all cursed insta-death weps,so it makes the cave tremendously more difficult, but I'm almost to the bottom! :woot!:

I was seriously confused for a second,  I've never even played Lufia but this has peaked my interest. Thanks, other Artemis!

No other drop, so the jewels are obtainable only from blue chests there.

And for a complete newcomer I really recommend Spekkio Lufia as it does a little bit of rebalancing.

Right on old Artemis, thanks for the heads-up, and to new Artemis: most definitely don't start on kureji, o at least stay out of the Ancient Cave that playthru. I was doing so well, but old tactics don't work against this new version of the Boss, and I cant seem to find a way to kill him with what I'd thought was the best possible setup :( I may have to leave and come back without Dekar. This game is beyond Nintendo Hard now lol!
