Final Fantasy IX - Unleashed

Hack of Final Fantasy IX

Description:

This patch is a difficulty and re-balance modification for the PSX NTSC-U version of Final Fantasy IX. Changes include:

Enemy Alterations

Regular enemies have had their speed, defense, magic defense, strength, and magic altered. Later in the game evasion, magic evasion, and status immunities have been altered. Some alterations have been made to class, level, elemental defenses, and abilities. In addition, almost all bosses have extra status immunities as well as native abilities such as Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell. Some steals have been altered.

Character Alterations

Character starting stats have been altered. Base Spirit has been increased.

Equipment Alterations

Some equipment teaches different abilities. Stat boosts have been removed. Weapon attack power has been reduced. Some weapons inflict different status effects. Elemental absorptions and nullifications have been changed to 50% damage reduction (except for the ultimate weapons). Defense, Evasion, Magic Defense, and Magic Evasion have been reduced.

Ability Alterations

Some abilities have been replaced. Spells generally cost more MP and have lower attack power. Abilities on physically based characters (Zidane, Amarant, Freya, and Steiner) often cost 0 MP. Gravity and Status attacks have higher base hitrates.

Fun but flawed

Reviewed By: Sage on 09 Jan 2021

The hack has some interesting and cool tweaks to abilities and overall the charactees feel fun to use, however enemies like the red dragons, the mistidons when fighting with steiner and beatrix,the boss with the fairy flute, and basically any enemy with a level 2 spell were really obnoxious and halted my gameplay. Admittedly i didn’t have skills like auto haste but being midway through disc 3 i definitely regret it. Overall fun but enemies do too much damage sometimes.
