Hack of Trials of Mana


Fixes a handful of gameplay bugs in the game and adjusts some values to be not absolutely imbalanced.

  • enabled AGL/evade for actual hit/evade mechanics instead of animation-only
  • hit up/down effects altered from no change to +10/-15 accuracy
  • increased chance for critical hits from fixed 0 to 2+LUCK
  • LUCK now grants a chance to deny enemy counter moves
  • changed attack bonus of crits from +50% to +(LUCK x weaponfactor)/3 (for monster treat level/4 as weaponfactor)
  • reduced damage of regular attacks for dual attackers by 25%
  • reduced Kevin’s wolfform bonus from +15% to +10%
  • reduced power up/down effect from +33% to +20%
  • apply 300 def cap before buffs instead of after
  • corrected issue with level-ups where max stats were sometimes those of later levels
  • force attack recalculation on map transition to prevent wolf bonus stacking abuse
  • Transshape has fixed duration of 12 instead of 25 minus LUCK
  • Heal Light no longer “heals” maxHP up/down (effect was only visible on next maxHP check)
  • Heal Light is no longer reduced on a target that has m.def up (or increased with m.def down)
  • prevent HP overflow from healing enemies with 65k+ HP
  • changed energy ball from crit rate = 50% to crit rate x1.5
  • Blaze Wall, Flame Breath, Demon Breath and Lava Wave no longer remove status ailments from the target (they try to inflict non-existing burn state)
  • fixed Kevin’s Deathhand and Dervish being mixed up in menu
  • fixed level of gemstone valley mobs that are stuck at Lv28 instead of growing with plot progress like their neighbors
  • removed check that sets LUCK to max if it is 20 or above on any kill
  • fixed that the day bonus on melee attacks checked for the target’s saber instead of the attacker’s
  • added element check on Lv2/3 techs (immune, absorb and reflect deal 1 damage instead of their real effects)
  • fixed magic shield only applying half of the magic defense effect mind up gives
  • fixed cast time progressing while menu is open
  • fixed that spell damage calculation used the level of the target instead of the caster for the 60%/90% bonus
  • changed the level based bonus to a gradual increase by level instead of a sudden spike going from 19 to 20 and 39 to 40
  • added exp rubberbanding if your highest levelled party member is below the monster’s level
  • added extra patch to remove cast time of spells
  • added extra patch to always get a chest after battle
  • added extra patch to boost all elements on manaday

A must.

This is fantastic bug patch. Although I couldn’t test everything that was documented, I certainly believe the creator did everything he intended. The agility is especially great, since it enables lots of things that were disabled (Agility stat doing something, Speed Up/Down spells, Duran’s shields, etc).

I had mixed feelings about the previous versions, because they had their flaws (v1.3~1.4 had half melee, v1.5 had cast time null, etc), but this version… it’s perfect. And the -25% damage for the double hitters’ normal melee was the PERFECT balance – not too much nerf, but enough to equalize the damage output among other melee fighters, but still retain their uniqueness.

Yes, there are more things I wish praetarius5018 would put into this patch (such as fixing the god-awful cast time bug), but this review is about what’s in the patch, not what’s not in here.

I really don’t have anymore to say. This is a MUST for SD3 players. Too bad it’s incompatible with the official ToM, but that’s not on praetarius5018. Probably not enough space in ToM.

Version 1.7 Recommended - Yes
