Yeah, barefisted also has a good crit rate. The downside is that you don't get a damage bonus for race (like Wightslayer/Dragon Blade), and you have to forego his heals and Call X Spirit spells. His Call spells have no backfire chance, high accuracy and the 2nd highest spell power in the game. I get that it can make the optimal strategy boring, but it also really helps new players that don't
see the hint to bring an extra weapon along. I'm more interested in making the game accessible; I can make a hardtype if there's demand for that. (Keep in mind I have a very evil design in mind for a hardtype)
Runs fine on a Super UFO!
Not sure if it is "fixable", but if you reorganize spells that only sticks until the character is "swapped out". Switching the spirits throws away any changes made to their spell order.
Great to hear it runs on real hardware! And yeah, the game overwrites the spell lists instead of saving them elsewhere. That would take an ASM fix and testing.
