It's been a minute, but I'm working on this again. It'll be a bit, but I'm currently looking over everything (particularly Seeq) in an attempt to make things more interesting. Here's what I came up with for a Berserker revamp. It would need to be tested, of course, but this is the basic concept I have for it. Basically, the Berserker will be very similar to FFXI's Monk job. Essentially, instead of just Berserking yourself and hoping for the best, this revamped Berserker will be all about combos and crushing things to death. (Granted, if you just want to tenderize everything with Berserk, you're more than welcome to with the updated Scream ability). The cool thing is that this job would mesh well with the other physical jobs the Seeq has, making Reavers scarier and Vikings more viable.

Example Skillchain: use Compression to deal damage to the target and inflict Focus on the user, making their next attack hurt. From there, you can chain Impact (making it hurt quite a bit more), or if the enemy isn't going to die easily, chain Final Heaven next to heavily damage and debilitate it. If you just want to nuke something, you can go from Fragmentation (to damage and Oil the target, and make your next Attack command have extra AoE) to Attack if enemies are clumped together, or to Detonation to do tremendous damage to the Oil'd target.

It's still a concept I'm perfecting, but I like where it's going. What are your thoughts?


SCREAM         ->      SCREAM:         Bestows Berserk, Haste, Attack Up, and Accuracy Up to the user.               
HONE SENSES:      ->      COMPRESSION:      50% weapon damage to an adjacent target and Add: Focus on the user.
FURORE:         ->      IMPACT:         Deals two weapon strikes to the target with a chance to inflict Defense Down.
GROUND SHAKER:   ->      FINAL HEAVEN:      Deals tremendous Holy damage to an adjacent target and inflicts Blind and Berserk.
SMITE OF RAGE:   ->      FRAGMENTATION:   50% weapon damage to an adjacent target and Add: Oil with perfect accuracy, also grants Buckshot.
INNER CALM:      ->      DETONATION:      Deals Fire damage to an adjacent target with perfect accuracy, removes Oil.
HELM SMASH:      ->      TRANSFIX:      Draws an enemy closer to the target and inflicts Immobilize.
SMASH:         ->      DUEL:         Grants Counter, Evasion Up, and Critical Up to the user.

Yeah, Zalmo is definitely getting bashed upside the head with the nerf stick in the next update. I honestly was hoping to have it done by now before you got to him because I knew he'd be an issue. I think part of the challenge is that Zalmo is just too good all around in that fight (never thought I'd say that about Zalmo...). He can be basically invincible and drop lots of damage on you at once. Barren, I'll send you a temporary fix sometime this week so you can continue the LP. :)

So, Return to Ivalice is out. A few fun finds. Fair warning, spoilers for the raid below, so avert your eyes if you don't want to be spoiled.

I'll add more as I learn more, but this is a fun little tribute to XII and FFT, and apparently Matsuno himself was behind it. (More FFT stuff in the future, perhaps?)

Hey team, read this article and thought it was pretty cool. FFXII and FFT will be featuring prominently in a new raid in FFXIV. It'll be pretty cool to see FFT areas be fully explorable. Article here.

Hey Myth! I'd say you're safe to start your game. Your save is compatible between updates (you'd just need to patch a clean ISO), so your save will follow alongside you. Most of the changes being made are to the AI and trophies as well as some other things, so you're more than welcome to begin. As for the PSP version, I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with that version next. We'll see!

Have you done any of that yet? I'm curious to see how you were able to, since there really isn't a solid editor for that specific type of change just yet.

I really have no desire to -add- enemies, since I figured much like FFT it'd just break things. I'm more interested in altering existing formations and the set gear/abilities the enemies have, since many of them are lacking in equipment and abilities.

Zeke, have you figured out enemy formations/set equipment/skills yet? That's the next thing I'm looking to do for GG and I wanted your insight on that.

Bear in mind that the AI will use the Quicken move first and will use -only- the Quicken move until it's out of MP. Just something to bear in mind. :)

Hey team! Thanks to Record Keeper, we actually do have updated -canon- spell quotes for several abilities. I was debating putting them in for 2.7 (which thankfully is on the horizon!), but I'm really not sure how people would feel about them, since they're very WotL-ish.

Barren, thank you for your videos. They're always a pleasure to watch and they've been mighty informative.

Zeke, great work. This is seriously good stuff. I would warn you against adding Quicken to moves though. The AI is awful with it. I'm going to take a more extensive look at your changelog later, but the AI will continue to spam Quicken moves until they're out of MP. I learned this the hard way with my Teleport move. Seriously great work- I'm proud and happy that other folks are working on A2!

You would be absolutely correct! Even moreso since now (unfortunately) there have been layoffs and I'm working even more to make up for the folks who aren't around. The cool thing is that I've been really inspired lately and have been jotting down lots of ideas for fun new things. That was partially why I stopped before- I just couldn't come up with any new ideas I enjoyed. I'm glad to see people are interested in A2 though- it gives me hope that even more tools and fun mods will continue to be developed. That said, feedback is still welcome, and I look forward to continuing on this when work returns to some semblance of normalcy. :)

Non-FFT Modding / Re: One Vision - Tactics Ogre: LUCT (PSP) mod

I see, good to know. I've wanted to tackle TO PSP myself at some point, so I'm very excited to see others working on it as well. If you don't mind sharing, what hex editor did you use, and did you have any documents/spreadsheets that show where all the data is located?

I've always been immensely interested in modding TO PSP. What resources did you use for this project? Great job!

I'm glad you're enjoying it! Please, let me know if you have any feedback, positive or negative. Everything helps!

I'd say go ahead and give the current version a go. It's very much playable and fun, but it's just different from what I'd do nowadays (it was made years ago, afterall).

So, to answer your question, the changelog on here is pretty outdated. Many of the things in the original post were changed since its inception. As it stands, right now I'm laying out the groundwork to get this back up and running. There are a few challenges (namely time), but I think the next version of GG is going to stick more to its initial roots instead of the direction it was headed before. Ultimately, some of the changes were messy (mostly because of lack of customization with FFTA, opposed to FFT/FFTA2), and I don't like things that aren't clean.

Completed Patches / Re: Name Fix Patch (Final Version's out.)

I personally -really- love the idea of using Reverse, and I wish I could use it for KO.

It's been a bit, but I -think- I just changed the text to something else and that fixed the WotL text issues. Sorry I can't be of more help, it's been a really long time.

Chrono, let me know what you'd need to make a version of this for KO. Although I'm not a fan of many of the changes, KO is intended to be a base patch of sorts, so anything you need I'll be more than happy to help with.

EDIT: Would you be willing to use the updated spell quotes from FF: Record Keeper?
