OverviewSpoiler: showSorceress's Resentment V3.0:
Re-adjusted some modification parameters and adjusted the gameplay. This version is based on the English version in the 2019 Remaster version as the basic modification. If you have any questions, please contact the author or leave a message in the forum
Special thanks to [Unrestrained Red Butterfly] for selflessly providing bug testing, providing me with the basis for adjustment and optimization, and thanks to his superb technical level that made me have to redesign some mechanisms.
Special thanks to [Upton XP] for giving me a lot of ideas and some pointers on mechanics.
All story bosses, especially the bosses after obtaining Ragnarok on Disc 3, have been greatly improved
The small BOSS of the Sorceress Castle has been fully strengthened, and will no longer be reduced to passers-by
The skills of the strongest BOSS Omega are strengthened, you can't hide behind the invincible
The Sorceress Ultimecia is extremely strong, please train all the characters, brush up the props and prepare the ability configuration before challenging her.
All bonuses have been cancelled. Cactus cannot be deleted because of the bonus of its own learning, but it has no effect. If you want to improve attributes, you can only rely on devouring and refining props.
Fully release the use of Limit Break, Limit Break belong to the characteristics of FF8, and completely restricting them will reduce the characteristics of the character. However, in order to balance the power of the extreme skill, it will be adjusted so that it is not too powerful.

How to use: Replace the files in the compressed package with the corresponding files in the game, and then start a new game. Make sure to back up the original game

Modification ideas:
From the official design point of view, below level 20 is easy mode 20-30 is medium Level 30 and above is difficulty, it is a gradual process with the progress of the main line, but due to the use of the attribute bonus ability later, Player always keeping their level to minimum as they can, which is actually Going against the original intention of the official design, based on this problem, the difficulty of upgrading each character has been changed. After the change, the experience required for each level of SEED is doubled, the experience required for temporary teammates to upgrade is greatly reduced, and all attribute bonuses are canceled. Lost the profit, and modified many GF abilities, making it very difficult to fuse GF in the early stage, and improving the use rate of magic. It also changed the devoured income to make it easier to improve the attributes in the later stage. For details, please refer to the devoured changes.
Since Disc 3 gets the Ragnarok, the intensity of the plot boss will become stretched due to the upper limit of the level, and the level of the player will change greatly. Players who level up and brush attributes can easily suppress their attributes. You need to start with skills and add various control states that cannot be defended, or you need to correspond to the state of defense to pass the level

Magic: Since no enemy can resist the melting, the effect of the melting vit0 is canceled and replaced with a small chance of instant death
Junction : Since the original attribute junction  can greatly reduce the difficulty of the game, in order to increase the playability, only the specific attribute junction  of a few magics is reserved.
Junction : Elemental junction  will negate the elemental damage of many enemies, including bosses, so it needs to be greatly weakened
Junction : Elemental attacks will now directly fuse high-level magic to 150%, increasing the attribute damage multiplier
Junction : Status junction  will greatly reduce the difficulty, so the status attack and status defense of magic junction  are reduced to 50% of the original
Affinity: The effect of magic on GF's affinity is greatly increased, so that those who use magic and GF at the same time should consider the cooperation of GF and magic more carefully,
Ability: Cancel all upgrade bonuses, except for Cactus, GF bonuses are replaced by this ability upgrade
GF: The damage and HP increase of GF have been cancelled to increase the difficulty of the game. (Anyway, it can be relearned from the props)
GF ability: The card change will allow players to have many rare items in the early game, which greatly reduces the difficulty of the game, so this ability can only be learned if it is changed to the relevant GF100 level.
GF Ability: Devour allows players to brush personal attributes without upgrading, which greatly reduces the difficulty of the game. Therefore, this ability can only be learned if it is changed to the relevant GF100 level.
GF phase: The influence of GF and the opposite phase is greatly enlarged, making the choice of GF more cautious.
Damage: Some Limit Break, Items, and magic can break through object immunity, magic immunity and even invincibility.
