If you or someone else ever is able to do even part of this I'd be so damn grateful. Mostly for cross skip and smart encounters.

1.04b Released
  • Removed "Event Skip". It will be added back when we can get it to play nicely with the treasure wheel and the NG+ event)
  • Fixed a bug with "Permadeath Terminator" which made it improperly detect the unit's team, leading to the wrong units being flagged

Patch fresh

Hi, I have used this mod on a clean ISO image, having installed TLW. Game over, and after killing Altima, I looked at the credits and the depth on murond menu appeared. But I don't see the Continue + and NG + options... I did all the sidequests, including deep dungeon. Detect that the problem was having the QoL mod installed. Luckily I had a save just before killing Altima, so I again used a clean ISO with TLW mod, but without QoL. And the options NG + and Continue + appeared. After this, I started an NG + I made a save in the first battle and reinstalled the QoL mod. I am currently going through chapter 3 without any problem, but wanted to report this possible error. I use the PSX 1.13 emulator.

1.05b Released
  • Replaced Razele's "Broken / stolen items can be bought back at Fur Shop" with Xifanie's "Extended Warranty: Safe Steals/Breaks". Razele's hack did not discriminate between player and foe, which led to the creation of this new hack. It returns your stolen gear after battle, and allows you to "repair" your broken equipment (including draw out shattered katanas) at the Fur Shop
  • Upgraded "Save overwrite defaults to Yes" to support the memory card screen between battles

1.1 Released
  • Added "Cancel Movement". It allows to cancel your movement by pressing Cross, except in the following circumstances: picking up a treasures/crystals/move-find items, triggering traps, and teleport fails
  • Upgraded "Only rare Move-Find Items" to version 2 as a proper ASM hack instead of patch the hex values of the rare items over the common ones

1.12 Released
  • Added (or fixed?) "Fur Shop requires Secret Hunt learnt, not equipped" where it was not working as intended
  • Fixed bugs with "Extended Warranty: Safe Steals/Break" where:
    • AI predictions would add items to the fur shop and after battle
    • Gear of guests without save formation/join after event would become available to the player once broken/stolen
  • Condensed all hacks into a new kanji space location. Sorry modders! In the QoL Hacks spreadsheet, you can define the start of the kanji space used, and you'll also see where it ends

Very excited to try this out! I just started a TLW playthrough for the first time. Can I apply these QOL fixes to my existing ISO and retain progress on my current saves/playthorugh or will I have to start over?

Thanks for all your hard work on this. Very excited to have discovered this community :)

You can keep your saves without any issues.

Posting some bugs already reported on the discord: 


1. Related to the Cancel Movement hack:

If you move as your first action and you are equipped with any move-gain abilities (JP, EXP, MP and HP), you keep what you earned even if you cancel the movement. This affects all the abilities described above.

2.Enthusiasm on Job Level Up:
Sometimes playable characters Entusiasm id also removed in certain jobs. Had Ramza celebrate Job level up on Mediator but not on Oracle.

3.Extended Warranty still looks it has some weird behaviors with broken items:

I had two Masamunes. Sometimes after breaking one or two, there are two extra copies available to be bought at the Fur Shop. I started using those when I only had two, and by the end of that playthrough I have 5-6 available.

I believe I found a bug. With the QoL mod after rescuing Algus and the cutscene at the castle all available battles (Mandala Plains random, Sweegy Woods story, and protect the Chocobos) start with enemies between levels 28 and 32. My characters are level 1-2 at this time.

I've tried patching a couple times using PPF-omatic and also applyppf. The checksums for both come out the same, so I don't think it is the patch not being applied correctly. I didn't run across this without the QoL patch.

QoL 1.13b, TLW 2.021.

Starting bin is the "found online" from the stickied post: b156ba386436d20fd5ed8d37bab6b624
With both patches md5: 7d81c073c48dd68b167a9e2cd317968c
TLW only: 947336d15916ac9cc4be50c730aa6c22

I'm playing on MiSTer, which potentially could be the problem, but I haven't tried playing on an emulator yet.
