The Damned

(When it comes to the above, does that mean you already decided where your "extra" slot will go?)

I'm not sure what to be more envious of: the fact that you've been getting so much done just recently or the fact that you have room for over 15 new enemy-only jobs. Probably the latter since I'm already having room trouble--I think I only had like 4 generic enemy-only jobs not counting the monsters that couldn't be Invited.

I'm going to assume that these aren't just monster "jobs" either, correct?

Nope. I just removed all the duplicate Holy Sword skillsets, and renamed/gave stats to the unused jobs like Duke, High Priest, etc. The spritesets will be shared with certain generics, but that's not a huge issue for the tradeoff.

The Damned

(I'll take that "nope" as a response to the first question as well.)

Ah, I see. I suspected as much given that I was going to do the same thing before I got sidetracked by running out of individual ability space. I'm still wishing that the amount of unused individual ability space equaled the amount of unused skill-sets and jobs or that we could at least change the more stubborn ability slots that aren't needed. (Looking at you, Throw.)

Sigh. Still, good to hear.

As someone that really enjoyed your Newtype patch, I can't wait for this to be completed ^^

If you need any more testers just let me know :D

Eternal

You're in luck! I should have Chapter IV ENTDs done by the end of this week. Waiting for an ASM that'll make special characters not glitch though. >_>

Still fixing bugs and such. Apparently you can't currently unlock Psion and you can't get past Zalmo I. I've fixed the former and am looking into the latter.

DD is now 30% done as of DELTA. Expect a lot of battles against characters you normally could never fight, namely Balmafula and Balbanes. :D

I keep leaving, I keep coming back. Boomerang boy.

Eternal

Expect to see an update of PW with WotL's script albeit with certain lines preserved from the PSX script (such as Blame Yourself or God), as well as maintaining Vanilla names. A few other minor tweaks will be things like "Akademy" reverted to "Academy" and "magick" to "magic".
