Hi Everyone, I just finished an expansion to the original Handicap force ranks mod that I did a while back

I present, the new and improved Advance Wars: Dual Strike Super Force Ranks hack.

Requires a USA 1.0 AWDS, and the patch is in XDelta format (You can find a patcher on Romhacking.net or whever). As usual, tell me if there's any crashes or unexpected behaviour.

As a note, this currently only works on emulation, it currently hard locks on hardware (and I'm trying to figure out why, will update the patch when I do).

What it includes:
-An expanded list of equippable skills, including skills that apply handicaps
-Auto-unlock so that all COs and skills are available to use immediately
-A random skill select function that will pick from the pool of skills
-Bug Fix so that Sonja doesn't get her terrain star reductions when CO Powers are off

Skills can be equipped as per normal on the same menus, but a second menu and list can be accessed by pressing Y instead of X on the menu. Some values have been changed from AWDS standard, as well. The touch-pad input will re-open the last menu of the two that you used.
