Breath of Fire Improved

Hack of Breath of Fire

Description:

This is a major rebalance hack that makes this game play more like the later games in the series, plus a few tweaks.

  • Some weapons and all armors have thier att/def and weight altered to the values of their later game counterparts
  • Level pacing is greatly altered with stat gains being reduced and levels occurring much more frequently (Max level stats based off of typical endgame stats in this game and a few tweaks based on later games.
  • Snes palette restored by ThegreatBen
  • more frequent occurrence of good equipment in Flea market
  • REMOVED DAMAGE CAP
  • Bleu (now renamed Deis) gains spells slower, forcing you to use lower tiered ones until further in the game.
  • Gobi buffed slightly
  • Version 1.1 fixed a glitch with text
  • version 1.2 fixed leveling issues, refined the flea market changes (still gives better equips more often) and removed StarHR (is now a free Mallet)
  • version 1.3 Restored StarHR, fixed more level up bugs, buffed some bosses that were still too weak.
  • version 1.4 adjusted Karn’s fusion AP requirements
  • version 2.0 renamed all remaining items and spells to match the later games (most names have been extended to 8 letters), allows Bo to equip gloves with bows, and fixed some reported bugs.

2.4 replaces G with Zenny, fixes a few small bugs and adds the Sara edition optional patch.

User Review Information

Good package

Reviewed By: Ayoyo on 04 Apr 2020

Made an account just to give a shoutout to this, I live and breathe these mods for old jrpgs and without them I probably wouldn’t play these games, so leaving my recommendation is the least I can do. Here everything comes in a neat package which I appreciated a lot (the snes restoration ones) and if I’m not mistaken, some bosses are tougher as well which I loved. I didn’t expect it though because there’s no readme or a comprehensive changelog, and their absence is my only gripe about the whole thing.

Version 2.3 Recommended - Yes
