Breath of Fire - Encounter Rate Fix

Hack of Breath of Fire


This hack fixes the encounter rate in Breath of Fire, so you can play the game with less interruptions by random battles. You can choose from two different patches:

Choose your preferred encounter rate:

  • 01 Breath of Fire (less encounters)(-50%)
  • 02 Breath of Fire (few encounters)(-75%)


  • Running & Double Exp and Gold. This will be useful when playing with a low encounter rate. You can also run by using the cancel button.

Please note that the Gown and SageML will still raise the encounter rate, so be aware when using those items.

You can combine the lower encounter rate patches with other Breath of Fire hacks, like FlamePurge’s War of the Goddess hack. Be aware that the Running & Double Exp and Gold patch is NOT compatible with War of the Goddess. Use the Double Exp and Gold patch included with War of the Goddes instead.

Enjoy Breath of Fire once more, this time without the grind!

Does what it sets out to do, muich needed

Reviewed By: Red Soul on 15 Nov 2022

I actually intended to make a patch like this myself, but ended up getting beaten to the punch, haha.

I’m glad it does exactly what it sets out to do, and is compatible with Flame Purge’s excellent War of the Goddess hack, for even more quality!

RPGs are wonderful, but high encounter rates are obnoxious, so get this and enjoy BoF as it should have been.
