I played through the hack this weekend and just finished the game. It was a really great experience. I completely forgot how the game sort of falls apart toward the end, but that has nothing to do with the hack. :)

The one thing I ended up being baffled by was the little heads that pop up when you press L. It seems like it's a realtime way to set the action grid. Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance before going into the vanilla action grid, but it didn't seem to do anything.

I've played this for an hour or 90 minutes and it's pretty ruthless. Zelda's one of those games that's harder in the beginning and it gets easier as it goes on; the enemies in the opening sections here can be pretty brutal.

Is TunnelArmr's Fire3 meant to bypass Celes' Runic? She catches every spell but that one, and she is glowing pink to indicate Runic status.

The Mega Man X SA-1 patch seems pretty remarkable.

Well as soon as I got back to 2300AD on my NG plus,
I found the mushroom and the life sparkle...
I'm impressed by how well thought-out you've structured this!

Awesome, thanks for the tips. I ended up killing Lavos, so I'll remember these tips on my NG+ run.

I have a bunch of questions about 1999 but I don't want to junk up the thread...

What do the various chips do?
Gobb upgraded Lucca's weapon, does he do anything else?
Mr. Bangor told me he wanted a chip, I think I found it, but now he just says Welcome to the BioDome. Anything to do here?
The guy in Arris dome told me about a research facility. Was that Cretaceous Park? I beat Diego, is anything else supposed to happen?
Is it possible to get into Geno Dome?
Is it possible to open the black chest in Medina?

1999 is absolutely delightful!  ;D I got the black screen entering the arcade, too. I just left Medina and walked back in and it worked.

I spent like five hours on this today and I've been having a great time. I noticed a couple things you may want to know about. In the forest clearing outside of Guardia castle, the power tab graphic is weird. Instead of the glowing blue dot, it was the "miss" graphic. I spotted this one other place near the beginning of the game too, but didn't take note of where. And the guy who gives you the list of trading post items in prehistory calls the sword the "flint edge" when you really get a "mammo tusk". The ROM I used was from the nointro set on the archive.

Wow, I’m super impressed that this project has kept chugging along. I should jump back in I! hit a wall almost exactly one year ago at the Lavos fight in the Black Omen way back in version 1.2. No matter what I did I’d get wiped by Destruction Rains from the Heavens immediately.

I went through the Black Omen in 1000AD to get to the final battle. If I remember correctly (and confirmed by checking a walkthrough), when you get to the Lavos shell, there's a boss rush of sorts. He's not doing the boss rush phase, he just kinda spams Destruction Rains from the Heavens and two-shots me.

Did you make changes to the Lavos battle? Or am I misremembering the game?

EDIT: I loaded up an unpatched ROM with this save just to see what'd happen, and Lavos does do the boss rush thing on an unpatched ROM. It seems like Lavos is behaving as he does in Chrono's death scene. Didn't see this in the readme, so I thought it would be worth bringing up.

Hey, I just wanted to say that I’ve started playing this patch over the weekend and I’m really enjoying it. I’m up to the Black Tyrano and it’s been a ton of fun. Great work, and I’ll be following this thread closely!

Oh my. This is brilliant. Fantastic work, thank you so much for sharing this with the world.

I wish there were more control changing hacks out there. ALTTP could use one too.

I'm mainly a lurker but I have to say that this looks gorgeous and I wish you luck in this project. Maybe one day FFV will get some similar love. :)
