Final Fantasy Tactics: Kind Of PSX (Current version: 2.6, Updated: 10/23/16)

For the most part, most jobs have the same stats with a few exceptions such as Mediators having better MA/MP, Calculators being slightly faster to compensate for their nerfed skillsets, etc.

Updated to 2.2. Not a huge amount of changes, but they're there to make Knights slightly better and fix some annoying little things.

(Bump bumpity.)

I just decided to check and it would seem that neither of the links are working, Eternal. I don't think it's anything on my end either (for once), so....

Hmm, I was just able to download it just fine, unless you mean another link?

(So it's just me. Of course.)

No, I meant the normal attachments in the original post. From some reason, despite trying to download various ways from both of them, I keep getting prompted only to download a picture of "index.php." I'm not really sure why that is, but it's definitely not working for me and this is the first time that it's ever happened. So I'm unsure what occurred in the month between my download of formerdeathcorps 'patch and today.

(I dislike double-posting, but....)

I think I've at least theoretically sussed out the problem: it might be occurring because I "downgraded" back to Firefox 8 due to the problems that Firefox 13 was giving me (and it's not like Firefox 12 was much better). That seems to be the only reason I can figure while I seem only able to download "index.php" while on here.

That said, going on a hunch about an hour ago, I decided to try downloading via Internet Explorer, and while the file still initially showed up as "index.php", it actually downloaded the .zip file. So I at least have one of the versions now, specifically 2.2.

I wonder if this affects other attachments for me now even though, as I said just above, things were working fine as recently as a month ago. I should probably try to test this with other attachments. If I can, then it's something wrong with the attachments in here (for me)....

Giever

Is there any way to use this patch with the PSP translation (but on PSX)? Like, by patching an iso with it and FFT: Complete, in some order?
98% of signatures are true.
If this is one of the 2%, never mind.

Eternal

I'm afraid not. If you patch an ISO with more than one patch, you can get errors. =\

Definitely, it just won't be nearly as big as the PSP's update.

I was reading through the logs, very nice work with this, however one thing, try not to change every ability due to "balance", every time you change stuff it gets further and further from vanilla, which is fine but I thought that was the point. I really like the idea of this mod though! Keep up the good work! :mrgreen:
There ain't no gettin' offa this train we on!

Eternal

KO PSX and KO PSP are still getting that promised update sometime later this month. I ran into a very large issue during testing (my bloody USB drive broke) so I had to start testing all over again. Fun times. That aside, things seem to have worked well so far during my last tests, so it's going smoothly.

I'm enjoying the paths taken with the Kind Of patch and in certain ways I like it as much as or even more than the Tactics Plus.  This should get its own section, entirely.

Monsters actually have teeth.  The ranged Choco-Cure makes grinding at Mandalia Plains a life-or-death situation.  Not to mention Choco-Esuna being able to revive dead monsters.  Altering every monster's initial attack to contain benefits as unavoidable or adding a debilitating condition is a stroke of genius.

I finished Chapter One and got the sudden idea: isn't there a music-free version of the game?  Like you said, multiple patches can lead to errors, but can a simple patch to turn off the music work out after patching or should a music-free patch exist instead?

Oh, and this one's hard in a decent way: Tactics hard without pulling utterly infuriating stunts on the player.  Excellent job so far.  Looking forward to PSX2.4.

Eternal

KO 2.4 is up! I'll try and make a music-free version later.

Here are the changes for KO 2.4 PSX:

-Pigs properly have Paralyze and Frog now. (PSX)
-Guest Agrias and Guest Gafgarion now properly join at Party Level. (PSX)
-Salamander returns, and now inflicts Blind in addition to Fire damage, as a sort of physical foil to Sylph. (PSX/PSP)
-Faerie JP Cost down to 200. (PSX/PSP)
-Summoners now have a higher MP pool. (PSX/PSP)
-Alicia, Rad, and Lavian come with 70 Brave and 70 Faith. (PSX/PSP)
-Level 3 magic has had an MP cost increase. (PSX/PSP)
-Cloud's Limits no longer require the Materia Blade, but do require a Sword to be used. (PSX/PSP)
-Braver, Cross-Slash, and Omnislash are now based on PA and WP. (PSX/PSP)
-HP Restore/Critical: Restore HP and Abandon/Reflexes have been removed. (PSX/PSP)
-Robe of Lords is now Initial: Protect/Shell, no longer grants 2 MA. (PSX/PSP)
-Chocobo Cure no longer has AoE. (PSX/PSP)
-Attack Boost and Arcane Strength's JP costs have been increased. (PSX/PSP)

For those who began a save before Zalmo 1 on 2.4, I'm releasing a fix for that battle soon so it won't take forever and a half to beat him.

(Hunh. I didn't notice this had updated. Well, I guess that means starting from scratch.)

Out of curiosity, Eternal, what is the problem with Zalmo in this latest version?

Also, is there perhaps a way to get a master list of changes? It needn't be anything excessively formal.

Eternal

I gave Zalmo MBarrier for his second fight, totally forgetting he had a -first- fight, and in the first fight, he comes with a heap of defensive R/S/M stuff, so the battle drags on for ages. As for a list of changes, you can view that in the very first post.
