It's definitely not a bad idea, my only concern is how you would go about implementing those changes. Something like that would require ASM hacking. Also, it would radically change the balance of the game, as you'd be able to have tank-like mages who are hard to kill, can kill groups of people, and can heal themselves up. I don't think the movement penalties would really effect them that much either, unless they can only move 1 tile at a time or something - at that point you have to consider fun factor.

As far as potion balancing, you could try making potions heal for a low % of max life, allowing them to scale throughout the game, but still be significantly weaker.

Yes, I want to remake the DD battles so that they are nothing like what they are now. I want them to give a very 'end-game' feeling, with special weapons that can only be obtained there. Whether that is going to be through using steal, or as a battle reward, I'm not sure yet.

I'm also not sure if the DD changes will be taking place in the next version however, as something like that is going to take quite a bit of testing to get right.

Sorry about the delay of 0.17, I've had a few things on my plate recently and haven't had the time to work on things. I will definitely have it done by the end of the month, and will have Chapter 4 story battles completed.

Version 0.16 was a big balance patch in terms of getting similar weapon classes and jobs on par with each other (i.e Balance), as well as bringing damage numbers down as they were higher than intended - especially due to the appearance of Bracer.

I've tried numerous ways to allow Martial Arts to stay, but even with the decreases to Martial Arts damage, the Punch Ninja is still way too strong. Monk is still a solid Job as always, however is now more dependent on using skills in order to maximize their damage (Due to no weapon upkeep).

Soul Shackle is the first new item of many I plan on adding. The goal is to add more diversity in accessory set up.

New end game weapons will also be making an appearance in an upcoming update. These weapons will be unavailable in shops, and will only be obtainable from the Deep Dungeon.

Help! / ENTD causing sprites to break
December 14, 2012, 12:18:26 am
I've done some searching, and after going through 4 pages, I've decided to just make a thread.

I want to go through the vanilla story battles, and change one or two enemy units to different classes, but when I do this one of my party members has their sprite broken during the fight.

Am I wrong in just changing the job of certain enemies in the ENTD?

Works in Progress / EzFFT - Ez's Rebalance [Version 0.16]
December 03, 2012, 03:29:15 am
Hello everyone!

What started as a few tweaks and balances, has now turned into a full fledged rebalance featuring new Jobs!

Overall, the difficulty of the game has increased, as enemy levels will scale with your own. However, enemies in Story Battles will be limited to using the same gear that is available to you, based on your story progression, so you need not worry about over-leveling, if that is your play style.

The overall focus of the patch is to increase challenge for veteran players, without overdoing it, while at the same time adding some fresh new features.

JP costs have been reduced in all areas so that enemies will have a wider array of abilities they are capable of learning. This will also benefit the player by heavily reducing grind times, and offsets the removal of Gained JP UP.

I will continue to make changes and balances as necessary. If there is anything you would like to see, or if you find any bugs, please don't hesitate to let me know!

Screenshots for new skill sets are now available in Featured Changes below

I've tried all of the Hacks here, some I really liked, others not so much.

What I am looking for now, is a way to hack vanilla so that the only change is that story battles have scaling enemies.
I'm not interested in having their gear increase as it does with FFT+, just the levels.

How would I go about doing this?

I really want to fight a level 99 Hashmalum at the end of the game lol.
