Now, this is gold. Thank you!

Quote from: rrs_kai on June 08, 2021, 02:35:32 pmI haven't because they were mostly the same for a large portion of the this mod's development.

Lately, I've made the following changes:
Removed Shieldbearer, Doublehand, Reflex, Strikeback
Humans got MagPow+ and Moogles got Doublesword
Many have received Immunity and Absorb MP, and all races can equip shields

Thanks for reminding, I will update the docs.
Edit: Updated the documentation and here is the link to the tab named R and S abilities
I will document them, and those two are the only changes to R-abilities
---Absorb MP triggers for all MP based skills
---Last Berserk = Quicken + Boost + Haste (think of it as an adrenaline rush)
Did you find anything other than Firestream?
Which version have you played? The 1.0 is not the best one and will soon be removed; I've only kept it for archival.
The latest one is the one to get. I am planning for an update that removes a lot of the fancy skill effects which should iron out any chances of bugs. Might take a month.

Anyway, could you please post all the bugs that you've observed?
Should probs update the thread title and the changelog on the first post to reflect the changes brought to 1.07.

Thanks for pointing it out. I'm still working on the 1.07, so I'll update the thread once I have the download ready.

Edit: The stats and equipment that you see in the current document are not what is present in the 1.062 mod. 1.07 is bigger update and I am taking my time with it.
Apologies.

I've been on this for quite a while and it seems good now. Game is playable till end. I've put effort into the story battles, so let me know if you appreciate the new battles.

---Major Changes---
Morph range increased to 1 (you can morph allies into monsters)
Decreased job unlock requirements (descriptions updated)
Some new enemy variations
Gil fine is the only penaltly for all law violations
Balanced stats
--- Added Leonarth's stat variance remover and rounded stat growths for all races
--- All jobs of a race share the same base stats. Stat growths are muted to encourage multi-classing and discourage mix-maxing.
--- Atk/Def/Mag/Res growths: Min = 7 and Max = 9
--- Every job gets good offensive stats, either Ark = 9 or Mag = 9 (If Atk = 9, then Mag = 8 and vice versa)
--- Slower jobs have better HP/MP and Def/Res => Fast vs Slow job at Lv. 50 is 100 HP/MP) + 100 Def/Res
--- All basic jobs are either Normal or Fast, and only some of the advanced jobs are Slow
--- Evasion is now based on speed growth (helps identify in-game)
--- Speed tiers: Fast = 1.9, Normal = 1.6, and Slow = 1.3
--- Evasion tiers: Fast = 50, Normal = 40, and Slow = 30

Status Defense depends on MOVE = reverted to standard 50%
Added a secondary weapon for every job (enemy battle formations updated)
Racial differences
--- Humans have access to all Support and Reaction abilities
--- Bangaa get the best weapon selection (Most of the Bangaa jobs in vanilla had an extra weapon, so continuing that trend)
--- Nu Mou and Moogles have enhanced 80% status defense (Cats and Dogs have greater immunity to sickness)
--- Viera and Moogles have 20 Evasion bonus (Rabbits and Cats run fast)
--- Viera and Moogles are fastest at base. So, Humans get +30 base stats, Bangaa and Nu Mou get +60 (up from +20/+40)
--- All races have the same stat growths (Previously, Viera and Moogles had a 2 point disadvantage = 100 points at Lv.50 on top of the base stat disadvantage)
All races get Double Sword, equipment rebalanced (experimental)
--- All jobs can equip shields (Shieldbearer and Doublehand removed from player use)
--- Helmets and Armor are heavy give some attack (Heavy-armored jobs can finally outdamage Light-armored jobs)
--- Hats and Clothing give some speed
--- Katana are split into 1H and 2H. The 1H variant has high Atk very early, while the 2H variant has bonus speed
--- Halved the range of 1H Guns and adjusted power. Added some heavy 2H Guns with high range and high power.
Concentrate's normal accuracy bonus increased from 30% to 40%, status accuracy bonus decreased from 15% to 10%
Turbo MP's normal accuracy bonus increased from 40% to 50%, status accuracy is still 20%

---To Do---
Change existing abilities
Add some abilities to monsters
Change law sets
Change story battle rewards and thrown items list
Change clan battles and post-game missions
Remove [Enhance element] from all equipment, move to accessories for better customization
Remove [Absorb and Null element] from weapons, move to shields

Equipment and Skill descriptions (ongoing)
Update tool tips for skill descriptions (ongoing)
Implement zero starting MP and 10% MP regen (stats already adjusted, will be implemented in the next patch once abilities are reworked)


---Bug Fixes---
Bad breath was bugged because of T-range, so changed it range 3
Sandstorm was bugged with flan, so moved Return Magic to Lamia

Leonarth added support for negative number display, so I reworked all weapons and armor

Sephiran fixed shields for AIO, so I made all jobs to equip shields, Shieldbearer removed from player use
Katana are split into 1H and 2H. The 1H variant has high Atk very early, while the 2H varinat has bonus speed

Hi,
I killed Marche on the first and used a pheonix down and it was fine for me. Could you give me more details?

Hello,

Thanks for your answer.

In fact I was wrong, it is not the phenix down in particular, in fact when I open the item menu in combat, sometimes it freezes ( about one time on 3 ). I use the basic US game with last patch version.

If you give me a mail adress or what I can maybe send you a small mp4

Could you tell me which emulator you're using? I use mGBA and I've never had this issue.

Whos gonna tell me, one day would need a tutorial about how to use the morpher. No, really, allways ignored him so I have no clue besides catching, feeding and morphing into, which allways felt odd because the monster usually has no skills to play with. just raw stats.

regarding slow but powerful and higher range guns:
- Chaos Rifle is 60 atk at cost of 5 spd, giving a net 12 atk per point of spd
- Longbarrel is 70 atk at cost of 10 spd, giving a net 7 atk per point of spd
- Bindsnipe is 80 atk at cost of 15 spd, giving a net 5,3 atk per point of spd
The only advantage of top dmg guns is an extra point or two in range (+3, +4, +5 extra range in comparison with average lighter guns).

Are you content with the current situation of these numbers? Might suggest you to shorten the points of atk per point of spd "sacrificed", if you still want to keep a detrimental increase among rarity. Given the actual status, I do believe that Chaos rifle would be my heavy gun of choice (less burst, more average dps).

PS: the similar treatment should every weapon on negative spd values have.
By the way, Speed is a value that fluctuates depending on classes from base 150 to 200 at Lv50. A malus of 15 in speed means around a rough 10 to 5% less turns (far less turns before lv50)

--- Edit

Was about to write you a PM, since its a personal request but ended up just editing this message to incorporate to it.
Its like my 3rd run on the game and I want to speed up the start so I can enjoy my clan earlier, so I've tried to reduce AP cost via many ways by my side (AiO editor, gameshark codes, etc). No luck here. Its a selfish request and be free to ignore it if you like, but would love to get an alternative patch just for this 2.0 version in which skills costs 10/20/30 AP to learn (so everyone involved in a battle would had a guaranteed skill learning). Alternatively, Leonarth's module for learning via JP spending looks promising as well

The monster you catch does not need to know any skills. The Morpher will get access to all of that monster's useable skills anyaway.

In FFTA weapon-power = % damage output
60 power = 60% of your total ATK stat will be used for damage calculation
Bindsnipe is 20% more damage and 2 more range over the Chaos rifle.

This is how I Intended.
If you're concerned about losing speed, there are shoes and a shield that increases speed to counteract.

QuoteBindsnipe is 20% more damage
Just to further clarify this, the actual increase in damage from one to another (ignoring the actual attack part) is 33%. If you were doing 100 damage per shot with the previous weapon, the new one on the same target will do 159 due to having the extra 20 attack and higher multiplier.

Weapon damage scaling in this game is beyond ridiculous.

The mod is currently like this:
The A-Ability AP costs are slightly lower than vanilla. R & S ability costs are much lower than vanilla. The AP reward from story battles is much higher (easily 2x to 4x) and you can get two mission items called Insignia, which doubles the AP reward. If you bring both, then you get 4x the AP reward.

I am considering halving all A-Ability costs. I was also thinking about a repeatable mission for farming exp. All enemies will be statues/boxes that will always have a level advantage but die very easily. Its purpose is to quickly level up your weaker units and provide easy AP for 6 units at once.
