Woohoo! Thanks for the Christmas update.
Now I really want to play this again, especially since it's been over a year since the last time I played this back when it was version 1.0.
Now how am I supposed to chose between this, finishing BNW, or SMRPG Armageddon? Hmm

One question, how limited is the limited esper patch? Is it less limited than BNW?

It's not as strict as BNW, pretty much due to the fact that there are no esper bonuses. Each character can have 10 equipable espers. I did put some planning into it however, trying to match up the esper to the character's personality basically, as opposed to spells. The later epsers with exclusive spells are much less widespread though.

Who like updates? We like updates! Right when I thought all was good to go for a while with 1.4.5, I was suddenly blessed with the need to do another update.

This one though is actually important:


- fixed a possible issue of the song used to battle Ultros 2 at the Opera House glitching up, and the song directly after it. This was an issue on snes9x, not sure about real hardware though. zsnes didn't have the issue.
- slightly edited Cloud's actions when he is acting with Ultros.
- fixed some garbage looking tiles on the Serpent Trench map that was caused by the motherfucking level editor spilling data over by 1 byte upon saving.
- turned down the encounter rate in Serpent Trench Caves.
- touched up the WoB overworld forest tiles just a bit more.

We are born, live, die and then do the same thing over again.

Wow, did I f**k up! In version 1.4.3 I changed Cloud's 7th limit into Finishing Touch, and I was playing today and used it against a boss and noticed that it killed it (the boss) instantly! I forgot to enable a custom flag regarding bosses and death protection, so it would kill anything and everything unless it missed.
So needless to say, version 1.4.6 was very short lived. Version 1.4.7 is up and fixes that horrible mistake.


- corrected a horrible, horrible unforgivable mistake with Cloud's Finishing Touch Limit that caused it to kill anything...

I'm gonna go crawl into a hole now.

- touched up a bit of various dialog.
- gave an extra sound effect to Otis when he jumps down from the opera ceiling.
- fixed a very hard to notice small issue from the original game with the soldier not falling down far enough (sticking) after getting hit by the minecart, after the minecart ride.
- touched up the WoB battle victory fanfare (Saga Frontier - Victory!) just an instrument volume thing.
- bettered a tiny bit of the 'big event' on the Floating Continent.
- swapped Golbez and Shadow's (Heartless) ending scenes.
- nerfed Meteo damage ever so slightly.

As always, thanks one and all for playing and helping with these update with reports and feedback, and of course those who helped work on it in some way. Hope you guys enjoy version 1.5. There will be no more big updates like this for a long time, but probably little ones as they come. Hopefully just not for things I messed up on again...

guyz, i dun goofed. In my infinite wisdom and classic rotds new version release fashion, I managed to knock out the natural stat growth with a recent patch that was implemented, and just now I find this out... SO, if you downloaded the v1.5 update earlier today, please re-download. Thanks!

Already had to update yet again. Back to the three digit version # again sigh. Nothing too bad but I neglected to see during my testing that the Recharge! item was still insta-killing Undead, so now it can't target monsters at all problem solved okay back to not working on this hack >_>.


- Recharge! Item can no longer target enemy.
- Corrected a small quirk with the Skull Train battle.
- Big Daddy enemy can no longer be Controlled.
- Varia Suit can be equipped by all now.
