Breath of Fire II - Encounter Rate Fix

Hack of Breath of Fire II


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

Choose your preferred encounter rate:

  • 01 Breath of Fire II less encounters (-50%)
  • 02 Breath of Fire II few encounters (-75%)
  • 03 Breath of Fire II very few encounters (-94%)


  • Double Exp and Zenny. This will be useful when playing with a low encounter rate.

Please note that Smoke will still lower the encounter rate and the Collar will still raise the encounter rate.

You can combine these patches with other hacks, like Breath of Fire II Maeson or the English retranslation by Ryusui and d4s. Be aware though that the Double Exp and Zenny patch is NOT compatible with Breath of Fire II Maeson. If you’d like these patches to work with the retranslation, please read the important notice in the ReadMe.

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

Just as necessary as the one for the prequel

Reviewed By: Red Soul on 24 Nov 2022

Everything I said about the BoF1 encounter reduction applies here, as the vanilla game is just as egregious in this regard. The high encounter rate of the game marred an otherwise wonderful experience with excellent graphics and sound.

Best enjoyed with the supplied Double Exp. and Zenny patch also provided and Ryusui’s wonderful retranslation (consult the read me carefully if you want to use this with the retranslation).

Recommended is selling it short, this patch is necessary.
