Easier 7th Saga

Hack of The 7th Saga

Description:

7th Saga is a SNES jRPG notorious for its unforgiving difficulty in that monsters are brutally difficult and the heroes’ stats don’t rise particularly generously with their levels. It is not widely known, however, that 7th Saga is the localized version of Elnard, the Japanese incarnation of this game which is much, much easier by comparison. This IPS patch restores the monster stats of Elnard to the US 7th Saga and also modifies the mechanics of player leveling such that the player will now gain stats as he or she would in Elnard, making the game’s difficulty level much more reasonable. Additionally, confrontations with the rival apprentices in this game are now properly balanced, an oversight in the localized version.

Note: This patch requires a ROM that has no header.

Update (10/16/07):

Thanks to the keen eye of gamefaqs poster “usernamehere”, it was noted that even in the original Elnard, magic users’ power did not grow at the proper rate. I have released an alternate patch which, though not exactly true to Elnard, does make playing magic users possible again. Choosing a magic user as a partner should now also be a much more viable option.

Really balances the game!

Reviewed By: Scottdj23 on 30 Jul 2017

After play testing it, I can definitely say that the stats are more balanced like the Japanese version, Elnard. I also added the magic users patch to it.

I discovered that the magic stat keeps increasing past it’s normal maximum of 255. It still displays 255, but it continues to grow. I can’t speak for the speed stat, which is suppose to cap at 255, because at that point you are already dodging everything!

I really enjoyed this patch. :)
