FF8 Hard Mode differences?
« on: 2018-03-29 22:44:46 »
What is the difference between the 3 modes realistically? Like what does each mode change... I know the game is waaay too easy Vanilla and I have one Hard mode mod installed but i read that this one (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=11026.0) can be installed along side it to make it more fun... anyone know what the differences are before I install one? I want it to be hard but not so much that I want to put my fist through my monitor lol... I still want Magic to have some effect just not quite as much as it does in vanilla...

heya, if you are using the steam version... I've been working on my own mod which instead of being a launcher, i've been adjusting each enemy / bosses stats individually... allot of them have STATIC Speed stats by default... which was a big complaint about FF8 where it can get to a point where the enemies never get a chance to attack...

bit list of most changes... some Surprises... + new Magic / some redesigned to not be OP Instant Wins...
eg double now casts MAGICAL BERSERK... TRIPLE = MAGICAL BERSERK + REGEN + HASTE...
and i've fixed big issues with the junctioning system IMO :) impossible to max out 100% absorb on all elements now... gotta actually figure out your priorities...
