(PSP) FFT: WotL Git Gud Lite Edition (Patch Version 0.9.81)

(1/3) > >>

As the title implies this is a mod for Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions for the PSP...
Links to the bundle (patching instructions and a copy of the current change log) as well as the current .ppf for patching are below.  They will be updated so that no one has to scour the thread for the current versions. 

This mod leaves the original story of the game intact while focusing on rebalancing aspects of the game related to combat. 

Ability descriptions, job descriptions, and status messages have been edited to generally be more informative.

ALL of the psp exclusive items have been made available in the normal single player game. 

Since GGL Edition is the "lite" version of my mod it should not viewed as a hard mode mod.  I did spend a fair bit of time while working on this mod reminding myself that it was not meant to be a hard mode mod.  I have also made modifications on several occasions based on feedback from the closed beta.  However, players should still be unable to roflstomp their way through this mod in quite the same fashion as was possible with the original version of the game. 

Forethought plays a much larger role in this mod than in the original game and players may find themselves rewarded or punished based on certain playstyles. 

Certain "exploits" are no longer possible while others remain and are generally encouraged.  For example:  manafont/mana shield on a knight is no longer possible while JP overflow and spammable abilities remain to be abused at your leisure.

Patching instructions as well as a copy of the current change log should be present in the "psp ggl bundle"...  If anyone has issues or needs further clarification on how to apply the mod feel free to post.  Use a clean U.S. ISO when applying this patch.

Feedback is more than welcome. If you encounter any "glitches"/"bugs"/issues/text errors in general please report them with information that will allow identification of said "glitches"/"bugs"/issues/text errors.  Essentially I would like to know who/where/what whenever possible.  Simply stating, "I encountered an enemy in a random battle that was level XX while my highest level party member was YY," will not cause me to scour the entire ENTD searching for a mystery mob. 

Also, I hope that whomever decides to play this mod finds at least some amusement in doing so. 

PPSSPP v1.4.2 for Windows currently appears to cause many audio issues when emulating FFT: WotL.  Version 1.3 for Windows seems to suffer from less.  So, if you experience missing/muffled sound effects please check your version.  If anyone experiences slowdown issues with my mod please feel free to PM me and I will attempt to troubleshoot the issue for you. 

Version 0.9.75 is now available.

U.S. or PAL iso?

You will need a clean U.S. ISO to apply the patch.

Version 0.9.76 is now available.

I cleaned up some spacing issues I found...  Also, I updated several status messages and ability descriptions to be more informative.
