Are patch codes an Improvement hack or a cheat hack
« on: June 23, 2019, 03:12:37 pm »
I got recommended on GameFAQs to turn some of Zaraktheus's patch codes into hacks to drive some interest back into saga frontier. The two patch codes I turned into patches are Allowing Mystics to gain HP and WP from Mystic skills, and I changed the drop rate from 100%, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64 to 100%, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 for item and monster skills. What category would I upload these as?

There is no cheat category on hacks submission page. Also cheat hacks are not accepted (read rules on the same page), but personally I don't consider your changes as a cheat (nor improvement, nor the rest of categories). So try to present it as an improvement and see what happens.
