Title: DP's test run results and opinions.
Post by: DarthPaul on September 16, 2009, 11:50:11 PM
First battle at Orbonne was fairly easy. Only found one bug.

The same one Kage noted.




Also just because it was funny i snapped this screen of Lavian and Rad acting like guard statues.

Glad you guys liked that one.



Okay Zozma the first battle had a nice difficulty to it. Not too hard not too easy. To win I used the surround and conquer tactic while using the dead bodies to circumvent their numbers while I worked.

Now to some things of interest I found.
Look in the upper right corner at the little glitch by the L1 icon.

That's all to report from Gariland. Off to watch Algus get slaughtered.

oh yes, thanks, thats a text change. a simple number determines which portrait is displayed.

I saw that upper right corner bug too but i have no idea what caused it.
Title:
Post by: Zozma on September 17, 2009, 02:46:57 AM
thanks to Cheetah i was able to fix that. i just wonder what caused it in the first place.. a stray asm hack perhaps

Saving Algus was hard enough without being impossible.



1)Algus has sword skills. Barely makes this battle possible.
(http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/47/l_764d0c1d38f74207a8225f6f967c7016.png)

2)A typo in his spell quote. It's ruthlessness not rewtlessness buddy. Damn Algus is dumb.
(http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/21/l_64da1837457c44dabe072458fcab50ea.png)

3)Algus was right next to Delita and facing the same way when I killed him.

Okay as for Sweegy it could benefit from a chocobo or some kind of healing enemy.

Not much to say other than the bombs defending made me lol.

Entering Mandalia from east.

Panthers and Goblins.

Goblins can insta cast Blind with a cross shaped AoE. For 100% accuracy. This means you are screwed. Not enough money for eyedrops, and not enough turns to administer them anyway.

I was brutally slaughtered 8v5.


Pics time Yay ^_^

This Goblin is trying to escape I know it.

I shall say this. This battle is not a challenge so much as a series of gambles taking place on a single map. I lost. I'll return after I unlock some better classes/skills.

Mandalia from west.

Choco and Panths.

This battle was difficult. The two panthers where relentless and my damage dealt was minimal. I won through sheer determination to keep my dignity.


Pics time ^_^

This is when tactical revenge is sweet.

Dortor 1 was difficult could use some more archers or an extra BM.

Word of warning Teta will kill anything in her way. Friend or foe.


Pic taim.

Deus ex wepon guard.

Post by: Samuraiblackbelt on September 19, 2009, 05:17:05 AM
what would cause teta to cast a spell on a team member? does her AI still think she's casting cure?
Title:
Post by: Zozma on September 19, 2009, 06:10:19 AM
no, even agrias will do it with stasis sword. I think its a matter of, if that wont end the battle right away, they will use it. their ai avoids it if they are in a position to cast it in a way that doesnt hit an ally but it wont stop them from using the skill if they cant avoid that.

and if you look at the picture, you can see that where the archer that she killed with bio was standing, there was no way she could avoid hitting the white mage because she had no other panels to target that had range due to height difference.

Cellar of the sand mouse.

Where to begin. This battle made me shit my pants till I realized two of my guests where Zalbag and Algus. I thought I was going into a 4v9 with two of my units being guests. Wasn't so bad. Not much you can do to make it harder without making it ridiculous.

This battle was wierd, and seemed borderline "lolpatch".

Pic Taim.


Ah ha Teta finally killed herself instead of me.
(http://c1.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/82/l_03075421baa54f4ea8043fb716822430.png)


Having Gustav jump the table makes this scene much more epic.
(http://c1.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/89/l_01091fba974b46eaaf1505cf35d2d8c4.png)


Where did Algy and Zalby go?
(http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/24/l_8aa28a33303c40d18e47cc9d7abeabc6.png)

If they are waiting outside it would make more sense for Wiggy to warp out or you create the plot hole of "why didn't they try to catch him".
Title:
Post by: Samuraiblackbelt on September 20, 2009, 03:18:33 PM
did you ever figure out why the table was there Zozma?
Title:
Post by: LastingDawn on September 20, 2009, 03:20:48 PM
Yep, the Attack.out editor makes that pretty clear, but come on! Is it not awesome to see Gustav hop over the table and Still see Wiegraf completely blindside him?
Title:
Post by: Zozma on September 20, 2009, 03:27:32 PM
yeah, the table was there because i had used an older version of zodiac's attack.out editor which defaulted all the hidden objects back on to maps like this one. I actually deliberately kept the table after getting an updated copy of the attack.out editor just because i like the way it looks when gustav jumps over.

also
Rat cellar battle is an incompleted scene as well. Worried about Ramza and Co Algus shows up to help you and he has convinced Zalbag to come along with him. At the end of the battle they will leave confident that Ramza and Delita can handle the rest, insisting that Ramza doesn't reveal that Zalbag was ever there. The scene is mainly to show a little more of Algus' new role.
Title:
Post by: DarthPaul on September 20, 2009, 03:49:54 PM
Alright thanks for the little reveal. That makes a lot more sense.

Post by: DarthPaul on September 20, 2009, 05:35:56 PM
First attempt at Miluda 1.

First attempt because I was not prepared and died without getting a turn.

Zozma. Sir Zozma perhaps. You told me to test this for difficulty. You have the difficult thing down. Annoyingly well. I was under the impression you wanted me to play this casually and find what could be made more challenging. This is not what I expected. I expected a semi hard game not 1.3 dressed up to look less like 1.3.


EDIT: To enunciate a little I was not expecting to have to get psyched up before each battle. Had I known I would have been more frugal with my expenses. Next time a little warning would be lovely.

I am off to don my war paint before trying this fucknut again.

Second attempt Miluda 1.

After setting up my units with a wide array of useful skills I tackled this battle. I started by strafing to the right and accumulating my archer and monk. A squire went with them and stoned a white mage about to cast thunder into the way of a bio that killed Teta a thief and the white mage. From there Delita buffed me as I avoided attacks and spread out to avoid Miluda's jackassery. Battle ended with me punching her for exact damage.

Not as hard when you think it through. The sheer array of enemies on the board however is painful. I had to be very careful to make sure most of them had nothing to do.


Pic time.



Although he only did this all battle Delita proved to be worthwhile here.
(http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/86/l_afa5ffd8bca849ed8effc1b5acbb19ff.png)

Teta really needs to think out her spells. Seriously, she always takes out an ally.
(http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/9/l_5aed5af4051d49cfba42d26e0a0e2fbe.png)

Two swords, martial arts on his feet, and he's a Rogue. WTF.
(http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/42/l_24f1b51a68b24a5bb6ba37bf3a80e397.png)

Also this.
(http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/1/l_255b2530e034470f9c598dff67b98b7b.png)

Her skills are a pain. Especially with AoEs.
(http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/104/l_7021878be6ee4f69bb5d8c7b10b8d1f7.png)

This speaks for itself.
(http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/40/l_20eb8ed82cc849689ee3bdecc3b977f2.png)

This scene looks nice with Miluda's new sprite. Also you might want to rethink Teta's lines here. Algus' old lines don't work for a variety of reasons. She just isn't conveyed right.
(http://c2.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/16/l_0258d664b0254fc29c39eb0dc6eff5f9.png)

I still don't fell bad for him.

Haha, well that's as far as Zozma and myself have gotten, Tietra's lines are going to be reworked to be less like Algus's down the line.

yeah, algus lines are substitute for now since the same things are going on in his place.

Also, i havent give rogue a description yet. but they are wildcard enemies, able to have any combination of RSM could be an RRR, SSS, MMM, RSS, RRS.... etc etc lol

Btw was ramza still a squire when delita used that skill on you...? because thats the only way to learn it

Aguaray Woods. Easy, but not too easy. I like boco's new diggs. Here are some pics:

This on the other hand is a bitch. Non-charge Paralyze is a bit strong. Extended battle for 5 min while my 3 guys sat paralyzed and gaff, boco and agrias ran away. Maybe Dont Move?

The Falls: Picture Battle log. Overall, hard but not too hard. You might consider giving Summoner Ovelia a little more hp. Oracle Ovelia is perfect. Not too bad and has perfect stats for gaff and Delita.
