Regards ultimate weapon: Have you tried enter then leaving a few towns then look? had a simular issue in the past and that appeared to solve it. That was at the point just before midgar raid when had that issue thou.

Oddly enough, that's where I had the issue too. So yeah, it looks like a couple of in-and-outs may be the answer. I killed Emeraldy boi and made my super long sword. Then boom, Ultimate guyo just pops up right in front of me.

I checked the field script and it should just be a case of talking to him while having 1x Murasame in the inventory, 1x Moonstone (from Cosmo Canyon, red xiii's room), 1x Zenogias Plate (from Costa Del Sol house), and 7x 7778 Needles from Cactuers. When the recipe is displayed, does it show you have the required number of items in the recipe's text box or are any not matching what you have in your inventory (for instance do they display 0 instead of 1)?

It does show that I have 1 of each when I speak to him, but the dialogue ends immediately after he lists the ingredients.

Taking a couple of random battles got him to spawn over the ocean for me

How much demand is there for a Windows Store version of the mod? I can't imagine it being strong.

I don't mean to be insensitive, but is it really worth your time to be working on this?

It's usually an idea to try and cover as many versions as possible, but the Windows Store version seems like it'll be a challenge to modify purely because of the write protection on those files (it feels a bit like a mobile app in terms of security). It has some features unique to it, along with some problems too (audio on SFX seems like it's a bit off and I'm not a fan of the AI Upscale they've used or the letterboxing).

Hi,

I noticed a few thing during my playthrough, dunno if these things are on purpose or not.
I play on the steam (French) version, I followed the install instructions (renaming files etc...)

Here are the few things (that might be a bug) I noticed :

Spoiler: show
1st thing, Aeris can use two of Cid's Weapons; Scimitar and Venus Gospel.


Spoiler: show
Silver Chocobo can level up everybody (except Cloud) lvl 99 by renaming the Character with a reagan green -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElvDqcTP7q0


Spoiler: show
For some reason I didn't get the Ribbon after Ozma battle, maybe it has been removed ?


Aeris was set up to use a couple of Cid's weapons and I moved the weapon models into her files for it; reason being she was a bit short on weapons so having an extra couple helps a bit.

The Lv.99 thing is a new one to me; I'll check it tonight and see what's going on there.

I think Ozma doesn't drop it anymore, Ribbon was made into a one-time drop that you get at the end of Disc 1 if the battle plays out a certain way. I've a plan to add it to a new fight on Disc 3 in the future though so people can finish up their accessory collection.


It would appear that I was not fully ready to dabble in North Crater. I 100% brought piss to a shit fight. Gonna go grind out some of those big-badda-boom weapons and such. God I love this mod.

Oh, just remembered about the secret puzzle solving thing that I won't include spoilers for. But um... how the heck do I get back to some of these areas? Or I remember someone said something about a lot of them being available in the Battle Square. Is that true for all of them?

Furthermore, is there an established Ultimate Weapon bug? I fought him twice and he just... stopped spawning. That or I've been the unluckiest man alive for several hours. I recognize that he can be elusive, but I also don't see Ruby Weapon sticking his grubby mitts out of the ground.

Update: I killed Emerald Weapon and got Masamune, Now Ultimate Weapon showed back up. Idk if I was just EXECPTIONALLY unlucky for over 3 hours or if there was a quest trigger or some such. But for anyone looking for that info, there it is.

Ultimate Weapon is a bit of an elusive one; what he does after each encounter is respawn over the new crater near Junon where you found him initially and then he flies around from there. He won't stop at a location for a long time, so usually you'll need to find him and ram him until he beelines for a destination. It is possible to fly around for a long while and not spot him unfortunately.

Maybe it could be a thing to add an NPC to the Highwind Deck (like a spotter or something) that can trigger battles with Ultimate Weapon and skip the searching part. Unsure how that would impact the flying around part but I reckon it should be fine, a lot of it is done in battle AI I think.

It does show that I have 1 of each when I speak to him, but the dialogue ends immediately after he lists the ingredients.

Ah, it's 7 needles you need; the other ingredients are 1, but it's 7 of the 7778 Needles that's required.

Oh, that makes sense... haha, I'll go back and continue grinding those out. Thank you!

Does the Dark Cave still exist in the current version (Story B)?
I've pretty much done everything, but it seems that I can't trigger that quest.

Thanks.
Some questions/opinions about weapons:
What's with Lightgun and Work Glove having 0 Attack while the other primitive weapons have around 45?
And the MP Ultimate Weapons (Venus Gospel and Premium Heart) are downright TERRIBLE.
At full MP they deal about as much damage as normal weapons with 45 Attack.

Is it possible to reset character ranks?

Thanks for the mod, btw!
I really appreciate the QoL things you added like the Fort Condor NPC.

Not via in game, using a saveeditor/hexeditor perhaps.

The primitive weapons, or Ancient/Joke weapons, all have special quirks to them. The Lightgun I think has a chance to inflict instant-KO and always crits, while the Work Glove carries massive defensive bonuses on it (check the character's stats in menu after equipping it).

I'll look at the performance of the Venus Gospel and Premium Heart.
