It might be good to give Berserkers a few more weapon choices so they don't have to waste their empty slot on equip weapon. It's hard to justify a equip weapon when 2-hand improves their damage by a larger amount.

there is a bug about the sort fix by inu. When sorting many weapons like moonring blade, twin lance and shurikens has been disappeared. Is there anyone who also encountered this bug and is there a way to solve this?

The hard way I learned not to use patches made by Inu because for some reason they did weird things to the roms.  :banghead: I'll only leave the Multiplayer sound effect and the GBA dash patches from him.

Apply this patch https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/756617702696550480/972608093013811200/anti_ff5_sort.ips or re-patch your japan rom with the v2.2b (I just uploaded it but it may take a while to get posted.).

The missing items cannot be recovered, but can be purchased again.

Also, thanks for reporting the bug.

I guess I'll add swords or lances.

Lumiere

If you give Berserkers swords, let it be just the basic swords and don't include Knight Swords. That still gives the player a reason to use Eq Sword/switch to a knight when Knight Swords start appearing.

Also congrats on another release!

You've done some awesome work so far A29, and in a pretty short span of time too. It's so great to finally have all of these improvements and bugfixes in one place for the "FFV Definitive Edition."

The main (and very minor) wishlist item for a future revision I can think of is a fix for the bug where the Samurai's Mineuchi skill doesn't paralyze enemies as intended. I don't think this one has been addressed by any of the existing hacks or bugfixes yet. The bug is present in the SNES and GBA versions, but was fixed for the PC / mobile releases and the Pixel Remaster.

I think there's also a discussion to be had around rebalancing Freelancer, so that by the endgame it isn't automatically the go-to OP choice once you've mastered lots of jobs. The first thing that comes to mind is trimming its stat gains to something like 50%-75% of the jobs that character has mastered, and also limiting which / how many innates it can use.

Thanks again for all your hard work, I'm greatly looking forward to my next playthrough of V. :thumbsup:

Lumiere

I don't think anybody has worked on the Mineuchi bug for the snes/gba.

Freelancer is supposed to be OP but, part of the problem is that most classes wind up being built similarly to the freelancer due to the limited amount of options lategame. If there were more options, then the Freelancer wouldn't be a go-to.

Just curious, what's the reasoning behind naming the hack Moogle Edition? Were there extra Moogles added, or do they play a more significant role this time around?

I actually patched that bug, but it's called "SwordSlap" because "Mineuchi" might be confusing to some players.  :thumbsup:

I renamed it that way because it was the only thing I could think of for the name.  :laugh:
I'll rename it again in the next version to avoid spoilers (the Moogles come out almost halfway through the game). :thumbsup:

Yeah, swords are the best weapons, plus it fits the job. :thumbsup:

I was looking at the font of the Japanese version and noticed that some Japanese icons look better than the RPGe ones (like the petrify and darkness ones). I'm thinking of restoring some of them, what do you think?


ExL

Well, they've used FF6(3)'s ones as well as font(adding shadow to it for ). If you want to restore icons - go ahead. Maybe restoring font is also a good idea, though there only uppercase letters and no lowercase. But font closely resembles Mystic Quest's one and with a bit of edit it'll match uppercase perfectly.
I've tried myself:

GBA font is also an option as main issue was it's readability on small screen of handheld console - no problem for TV screen :huh:

The GBA version font looks good. I'll create an optional patch to apply it to the hack.

I'm going to import the Mystic Quest/ FF IV font also as an optional patch.

I changed the color of the shadow and the font looks like the FF VI's one.  :laugh:



And here its the FF IV font:

I'd be curious to see how the GBA font would look like with the GBA script on the SNES version.

Ehehe, missaligned by 1 pixel to right in previous image, sorry ::) Edited in Photoshop without proper grid.
Here's fixed one + with shadow:

GBA one looking nice, even without WVF.
Maybe bold advance font would look even more fitting (taken from Dragonsbrethren's one from font archive on site):

Feel free to use 'em.

I imported them and they look cool.  :thumbsup:

To me, the second pic looks the easiest to read.

ExL

Lumiere, that, probably, how it'd be if game was localized back than. Seems to be good choice for default one.

In fact, both games (FF V and Mystic Quest) are from the same year and were being translated by the same person (Ted Woolsey). They had probably also used the same font.

It would look like this:

Just uploaded the V2.3a.

Changes:

  • Added stat bonuses to the Ragnarok (The ultimate sword).
  • Changed the menu font into a FF IV/Mystic Quest-like font.
  • Added a optional patch in case you want to use the old font (FF VI font without shade).

Unfortunately, because this hack changes the text and characters, some patches for the normal japan ROM are not compatible :( , so I had to use other patches that fixed the same bugs.

Managed to stat bonuses to the "Equip Rods" and "Learning"(now useful) abilities.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Due to "Equip Rods" being at the end of the Time Mage tree(move it if you want), maybe give a 50% increase over one of the higher Magic power totals?
I'll make it give you a +37 Magic modifier (the maximum magic modifier was +33 from the summoner and +36 on the GBA version from the Oracle).  :thumbsup:

Released the v2.4.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I guess this hack it's done (only a few minor changes are left but I'll wait for new ideas.).
I'll start to work on my next hack (FF III Nes Tweaks).  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

nanashi89

Any chance of implementing an optional double rewards patch, like I suggested with your recently announced III Tweaks?
