FF8 Hard edition?
« on: 2009-07-29 09:34:39 »
Hi there. This is my first post here.

I was just wondering...
Since some guys here are getting the 9999 limit changed to 32767(?), maybe...

What about a FF8 hard edition? (like enemies are more 50% LV than characters, more HP for them, very tough bosses)

I don't play FF8 for a long time, but for what I remember, it was a very easy game for me. I was able to get Lion Heart on Disc1 (needed 20 Elnoyle Cards, Lv20 chars and Luck!)

Please tell me that this is possible! This is my favorite game ever, I miss it...

Try "search" function ;)

I released alpha version (for English version of the game), which has some bugs. Most important bug is that you can't draw GF's from bosses. Version 1.0 will be soon available. :)

PS. To win with Omega Weapon you will need even 3 hours on Extreme difficulty (without using "The End", of course) ;)

Awesome!

If this could be combined with the new break-hp limit... WOW! Thank you!

Break-up limit patch and hardcore patch can be installed both – these patches modify different data :)

Nice to know.

Does 'Extreme' means really extreme? Can you briefly describe the level differences for me?

Some people are annoying, because this patch is too hard :P I suggest Medium difficulty. Hard and Extreme you should try later ;) And, of course, don't forget to make a backup of "battle.fs", "battle.fi" and "battle.fl" files from the "Data" folder.

I'm thinking in using Extreme anyway

Here's my plan:
1. get lots of cards (first card queen, then regular players, than CC Group).
2. Get all the draw points I can before any battle
3. Get Silence/Sleep from Training Center (draw 1 and run!)
4. Still try to get some more magic that way (usually blizzards or blizzaga if monters are high LV?)
5. Defeat the most weak monster in FF8 - Red Bat (6 HP*100 = 600 HP? in extreme?)
6. Try to get Quezacotl's "Card" and "Card Mod"

Once I get 'Card Mod', game is done!

I can't go to Dollet (1st mission) before the GF draw bug is fixed...

I know I'll probably take a *lot* of time before get there (lots of game-overs  :evil:)

Do you know what is causing that bug?
I was looking forward to pass the full game on Extreme  :-)

Of course I know, but I don't have time to correct this, because of my job ;)

What about 2 months?

My brother is about to get married, so I'll be a little busy too

I just tried this yesterday. Pretty awesome  :wink:

But I have one suggestion/request - can you make "Omega Extreme" LVs/Stats with "Ultima Hard" HP?
I mean, it's not by increasing enemy's HP that the game will become more difficult, just more boring... Specially at the beginning...

20'000HP bite bug it's lot of time... for 1AP!! aahhhh....  :x

I think 3x enemy's stats and 10-20x HP will be hard enough  8-)

Yeah, this is one of the less important modifies, which I have to apply before I release 1.0 version :)

But some monsters will not have decreased HP, such as Omega, Ruby Dragon, Omega, etc. ;) Extreme should stay extreme :P I want to increase monsters' intelligence, too.
