Added new descriptions for jobs and items.

New difficulty enemy behavior.

Change of the Speed spell (Reset battle speed to 5) to Water (Critical damage to desert enemies).

Battle encounters give now more AP Points.

Job Abilities have been changed. You don’t have to grind Monk abilities like HP +10%/HP +20%/HP +30% form mastering the job.

Chemist has !Mix command as a default Command.

And many more changes…

The only missable item known is Genji Equipment from a boss who can be found first in a Castle and made repeated appearances in the game, you have to steal this equipment from him every time you encounter him. Other missables items and magics have been relocated in stores or in enemies Drops/Steals.

Make sure to use the Start-Up patch first!

I wrote a whole thing here, but after beating the game I realized I patched it wrong, using only the Nightmare mode IPS. What you need to do is first use the Start-Up patch, then apply your chosen difficulty or other modifier IPS. In retrospect it seems obvious but I didn’t realize that as I was antsy to get playing. Though I did notice some changes from the base game so I guess half of the patch worked correctly, hah!

Version 1.11 Recommended - Yes
