Lots of good stuff here.

Magical Lamp, Girl Next Door, Solomon's Ring is item from PocketStation too, so nothing has been changed but added

Hi, everybody. First message here!
gledson999 thanks for the mod. May I ask you if there is the possibility to rise the 9999 limit of hp and damage? That would be amazing...
Bye

...

Thank so much for this.

I have some modifications that I'm thinking about re-balancing FFVIII.

Would you mind helping me out on how to?

I was thinking of adding yours too.

P.S.
I've no clue what I'm doing, and just downloaded Deling and Doomtrain.
