CCP 2nd - Beta Version Available for download!

December 25, 2012, 07:08:20 am Last Edit: September 16, 2021, 08:16:16 pm by Celdia Reason: Update, upload patch fix, add fan art.
Current version is playable through the end of the main story. Infinite loading glitches at places like Orbonne and Goland (sidequests) should be fixed by now.

9/12/2021: Un-fucked the latest Fix patch. Removed the confirmed bugged one and uploaded a new version. See latest post for details.


Some classes have gotten serious rewrites and others just some tweaks here and there. There's a new job tree as well (see below) and I've implemented Xifanie's amazing Cross-Skip Hack so hold those X buttons and watch that  l i t t l e  m o n e y  just FLY by!

As always, this mod must be played via emulation. If anyone manages to get it working on any real hardware, I'd love to know about it.

I'll try to get some more updated info posted below sometime soon. Suffice to say, the information the rest of this thread is old and out-of-date.

- Some sprites will flicker/change color/change shape during story events. This is due to special animation frames having not been updated to match the new job sprites.
- The effects of stat-modifying skills are reset during battle when a unit levels up. This includes but is not limited to PA, MA, SP, Brave and Faith. This affects both buffs and debuffs.
- Weapon graphics in battle are not fully updated to their new designations. Some weapons may look strange when attacking but it shouldn't affect gameplay. (Some Guns, some Claws, probably a few others I'm forgetting)
- Monster animations are not properly set yet. Some skills may make sprites load strangely or vanish for a moment entirely.
- Critical hits with ranged weapon skills may knock a units back twice. The second move could put them in another unit's square or off the map entirely. This can render a battle unwinnable if it happens.
- The Brawler skill "Dolphin Kick" can cause a unit to appear to get 'stuck' in the air. When they next move or a friendly unit passes
through their square they will return to the ground.
- The Warrior's skill "Charge" can be set to hit a tile and then your unit can move. When the skill triggers after it's AT comes up, it will attempt to Direct strike the originally targeted tile. This can lead to amusing looking melee-weapon attacks hitting from many tiles away. Abuse it as you like, since the AI will definitely being doing the same. I hope to get this fixed in the future though.
- Mageknight skills and unique character Swordskills operate on a PA*WP+Y formula instead of the intended MA*WP+Y formula.
This should be fixed in the 9-12-21 patch
- If you play any of the side-quests in Chapter 4 or the Deep Dungeon you may run into unimplemented beta resources. Also, random battle ENTDs may contain strange/nonsensical enemy loadouts.
- Game Crashing Bug - Using Mustadio's "Sentry" skill without a valid target will softlock the game. I have no idea why this happens. I might look into fixing this one.

Also you could just watch this to see some of the more impressive malfunctions all in one video:

Nephrite

I noticed that the sprites seem a little messed up in the storyline segments, most notably the Hokuten Knight in the l i t t l e m o n e y scene.

Is it intended that Green Mages can't equip body armor until Dorter?

Apologies if these are obvious questions since this is a beta.

Celdia

Well, in true Celdia Updating A Patch style, I've forgotten something on my initial release. I was fighting a hard drive that was convinced it was corrupted when trying to get this uploaded and that distracted me enough that I forgot to update the War Trophies for Chapter 2 story battles. >_< Will be updating the first post attachments in a minute with proper awards. You shouldn't need to restart your playthroughs unless you're past Dorter 2 [unless you want an end-game Axe weapon that you really shouldn't have yet...in which case, feel free to ignore this quick fix.]

Oh, and yes Nephrite, that decision with the Green Mage is intentional. There should be a Robe as a reward from Sweegy your GM can equip, but only the one by then.

There also happens to be some piss for brains with a thunderbuss at dorter 2 raping my mans for 100 per shot.

Celdia

I thought I caught all the defaults on them. Sorry about that. Give me a few minutes and I'll post a new PPF with that set back to Random equipment like it should be.

Edit: Dorter 2 fixed. See first post for new PPF.

They all had pretty silly weapons but more or less normalish armor.  Wound up robbing and killing them and got your nice looking axe.

E: what's the point of prism sword when rainbow blade is the same in every way except that prism sword doesn't boost any elements?

Celdia

They're supposed to boost opposite sets of elements, like so.

Rainbow Blade - Strengthen: Fire, Lightning, Ice, Holy
Prism Sword - Strengthen: Water, Earth, Wind, Dark

If it doesn't say so then I probably just missed a line of text among the thousands I had to change. @_@

Ah.  It does, in fact, not say.

E: Why is the princess wearing a book as an accessory?


Celdia

The book is an experimental set up that I never properly tested. I just set it in hopes that having it would give her access to her skills. Her new skillset has all of the Sorcerer's Book- and Staff-required skills but I didn't want her to be dual-wielding them...so I put the book where it is. If she uses any Range 3 skills, then it's working as intended.

dis astranagant

Ah.  It worked, though really the only skill she needs is the one that makes her invisible >_>  Otherwise Gafgarog happily marches over and prevents her from doing anything but healing herself.

Mustadio's sentry seems to be described wrong.  It says its a persistent skill, but it seems to just to only go off once.

TigerKnee

Darn, I should have waited. Now I got to start over again. Maybe I'll FFTastic my save file but I guess it wouldn't be accurate feedback then.

dis astranagant

Maybe you should put a note in the sorcerer spells that they require books or staves.

Celdia

You know, I remember adding those once which makes me think I didn't save when I was working on that part.
Quick reference on Sorc spells is the spell range gives away the weapon for them. Staff: Range 1, Pole: Range 2, Book: Range 3, Wand: Range 5.

I'm not sure if this applies to other Pillage skills, but I can use Steal Helmet on a character with no helmet.

EDIT: The Fitting Room doesn't seem to function. When selected, it simply says "Who wants to try it on?" then closes out of the shop.

formerdeathcorps

The Fitting Room "bug" is deliberate so people don't duplicate items with the fitting room.
The destruction of the will is the rape of the mind.
The dogmas of every era are nothing but the fantasies of those in power; their dreams are our waking nightmares.

Celdia

I wasn't aware that's how that hack worked. That's good to know. I think I'd rather allow the duplication trick than I would like to disable the fitting room so I'll likely undo that hack.

Not sure I'm gonna bother with Sorcerer much.  A lot of fiddly shit for some single target buffs and a few really expensive single target nukes.  2400 jp to learn them all is rather excessive, too.

E:  perhaps non-chocobo monsters need some better movement.  3/3 melee units are completely non-threatening when my whole team moves at least 5/3 (often 5/5 because I'm grinding out the last few classes at bariaus hill) and there's chocobos running around with 9/3.

RavenOfRazgriz

How does 2400 constitute "a lot" of JP to learn the Action Abilities of a class for...?

Pending your region and platform, Job Level 8 is 2100/3000 JP, and most Jobs in Vanilla cost 2500 and upwards of 8000 or more JP to Master.  2400 JP for the Action Abilities for a class with 16 skills is pretty low honestly.  :|
