So, if you've played this game before you know that you can increase stats with T.Points, which you gain by defeating monsters. The thing is, no one character's stats can be increased past the highest stat of another character's stats. For example, if you have two characters, both with 20 strength, you can't increase either's strength past 20. What this does is force you to stagger people's levels up, making the maximum strength constantly rise by doing so, making you have to keep two people at the max all the time so that you can increase each other's maximums. This kind of limits you to picking stats to focus on rather than giving you the freedom, for example, to increase Kos-Mos's strength, and Shion's EAtk separately. It's very frustrating to be having to worry about which characters are maxed at which stats and who has the highest at the time, etc. It also forces you to only work on 3 characters at a time, since the others won't really get any benefit from it at all. I tried using Cheat Engine(I have barely any experience with rom hacking and I read that really the only way to alter things like statistics was a game specific utility or something similar to cheat engine) to find the base statistics for the person with the highest of a possible stat, hoping to find the max value and/or the value of that person's stat and edit the maximum that way, but it didn't work. I couldn't even find the base value for the character, which felt odd to me. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? What I did, was I typed in the character's base str, leveled them up, looked for the changed value until only one was left. After doing that, I changed that value and it didn't do anything to the character's stats, nor could I raise it past that with T.Points, so it couldn't have been the stat of the character, could it?
If possible I might also like to edit the requirements of T.Points to raise the stat a bit to keep it from being able to raise one stat for the entirety of the game so they can one shot anything. Though the current requirements might be suitable to keep it from being that way as well, so it's not necessary.
