More Frequent Desperation Attacks

Hack of Final Fantasy III


This is a pair of patches that offer options to make Desperation Attacks occur more often than in the vanilla game.

The first patch, “More Frequent DAs”, simply increases the odds of a Desperation Attack occuring from 1/16 to 1/8.

The second patch, “Less Restrictive DAs”, also increases the odds by the same amount and has three other tweaks. Near Fatal status occurs at a higher HP threshold (1/4 HP instead of 1/8), the timer that prevents Desperation Attacks from occuring during the first 25 seconds of a battle is removed, and the check that restricts a character’s Desperation Attack to once per battle is removed. These changes mean that a character will be in a position to trigger a Desperation Attack more often.

Note that Desperation Attacks themselves are not changed, only the mechanics by which they trigger.

Included with the download is a Read Me file on what hex values were changed to make these changes, if any other modders wish to adopt some of these mechanics for themselves.
