Death of a Fansite is a silly little classic JRPG based on Eyes on Final Fantasy. The game is set in a world where Loony BoB has died and Eyes on Final Fantasy has fallen, the game stars a cast of over 80 EoFF members past and present as our heroes attempt to both restore EoFF as well as understand the reasons for its decline.

During its 3-5 hours of playtime, the game features some tricky and challenging boss fights that I hope will cause you to see the Game Over screen a few times, but will also give you a sense of satisfaction when you overcome them. All of this is to a soundtrack of nostalgic songs from FF titles and other JRPGs, as well as some original songs created by EoFF members.

Death of a Fansite is also packed to the brim with EoFF references and injokes, as well as some dorky and goofy humour. I hope that the average EoFF member will get the odd chuckle here and there, but a fair warning to those with a low tolerance for cringe - it's an RPG Maker game based on a Final Fantasy website. You get what you expect!

If you have played the superb Final Fantasy Record Keeper, you will feel very at home in this game as the battle system was originally an attempt at recreating RK's. I have translated a lot of the mobile and F2P elements into a more familiar and accessible environment.

Mac OS-X version released, download it here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/3jx82dgd1tcdjff/Death%20of%20a%20Fansite%20OSX.rar?dl=0). I can't test it myself, but this thread (https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/failed-deployment-to-mac-os-x.55209/) has some good troubleshooting tips.

. To play, simply open the .rar file (something like WinRAR or 7zip will be needed), extract the files, and then run the Game.exe file in the Death of a Fansite folder. System Requirements are here. (https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/rpg-maker-mv/14336)

The most important thing I can possibly tell you: F4 = full screen mode. Oh, and have a look at the options if the music or sound effects destroy your ears. RPG Maker likes to make things LOUD.


Joystick moves, X/A confirm and interact, O/B cancel, Triangle/Y menu, and Square/X dashes. Shoulder buttons scroll through characters.
There is a glitch whereby the controller commands don't work at the start. Just hit an arrow key on your keyboard and then the controller will work perfectly. No idea what causes it and indeed it may only be on my laptop! Easily fixed though.

Fairly standard, although sadly no WASD. Arrow keys will move, Enter/Z confirm and interact, ESC/X cancels as well as opens up the menu, Shift is dash. Pg Up and Pg Dn scroll through characters.

Click on menu items, click on where you want to go, and click on anything you want to interact with. Right clicking will bring up the menu and cancel.

It's not exhaustive though!
You will need to tailor your set up to each battle accordingly, as you can only use two abilities per battle with each character.
Don't go for all out damage! Damage mitigation is really important! Buff your characters with some white magic and use someone like Formalhaut or Scruffington to debuff the enemy.
Keep your equipment up to date. My advice is to use the random lucky boxes through sharky and Levian first, and only then stopping by the weapons stores if you have a specific gap in your coverage.
The Limit Start shard is expensive for a reason. It's bloody good, especially on Fynn or Bubba.
There are five optional bosses (mostly hidden in the giant desert outside). Beat them all to get a secret post-credits ending!


http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e373/photobucketamazingness/bugs_zps5ptlk4yw.png
I'm a one man band, with a little help from my friends. I know there will be bugs and spelling errors I haven't spotted. Please PM me and let me know right away!

There is a slight issue with the turn counter in the top right of the battle screen. An enemy may suddenly have a second turn right after its first without you expecting it. The reason is the turn counter only shows one turn per battle participant at a time. After each participant has a turn, its position in the existing queue for its next turn is then recalculated. The system may decide its next turn should be right after this one and it'll move again.

This isn't a bug, the enemy is meant to have two turns at that point. As there are five of you and usually (not always!) one of them, they have a much higher speed than you to compensate. In my ideal version of this, the turn counter would be like FFX's, and show all the next moves instead of showing one per participant at a time. Unfortunately it's an external plugin and there's not much control I have over it, so I am sorry that I can't deliver the better system I have in mind. Just remember that when an enemy has a turn coming up, it may have another one right afterwards too and plan accordingly.


I hope you enjoy my silly hobby, and please feel free to share your experiences as you play through the game in this thread! :)

More bugs

- sometimes when starting the thing, the lead character will just stand in the front door of the first town area staring right at the camera, not responding to any input, though I can access the menu
- all was well once I restarted but then I found out I can't save. Tried deleting all files and re packing them again - still can't save. And also can't move at all anymore.

The game is unplayable to me at this point sadly :(

Your first bug appears to happen if you rush through the dialogue at the start, like you need to wait for the cam to pan back down to the party.

Fynn
06-20-2017, 07:30 PM
Oh my God

What about the save bug?

Psychotic
06-20-2017, 07:31 PM
Don't mash enter through the start up bit. Let the camera pan all the way down to the bottom of the tower, then mash.

EDIT: SHAUNA :argh:

Never heard of the save bug if I'm honest. It sounds like there's some issues on your end? Are you meeting all the requirements? https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/rpg-maker-mv/14336

Psychotic
06-20-2017, 07:35 PM
I've figured out the cause of it. I actually start the game off with the character invisible. They then walk to the top of the tower and back (there's better ways of doing it, I am lazy) and then they're set to become visible and teleport to the tower when the speech is done. So if you skip when they're still trying to walk down, they'll teleport, find they can't walk down like they're being told and become stuck there forever. My b. Will fix in the first patch.

Sephex was a tough fight. Here's what I used to beat him:

Freya~ Wyvern Strike/Quick Jump
Nut~ Piercing Strike/ Circular Swing
Fox~ Darkga/ Drain
Bubba~ Power Ballad/Gifted Symphony
Fynn~ Curaga/Raise

It was close. Three of my party were dead, but Nut and Freya limit breaks were crucial. Good luck!

all the music so far is great too good job everyone

I think so far the only original tracks have been my town and shop theme, though I don't know how far in you got :p


Though I may have directed Psy to the FFIII boss theme remix I found on YouTube that you fight theundeadhero to :shifty:

Anyway, wish me luck! Imma try to beat Wolf Kanno again!

EDIT: Also, one thing came to mind - I think it's pretty safe to assume everyone who is a player character in the game is using themselves as the leader, but what about all you other guys? Who do you pick? Do you just swap them around?

Lyndis Highwind
06-21-2017, 06:51 AM
I swap them around. My team is always changing, so the leader is never set.

Just gotta burst him really hard over the start of the fight. Dark damage (and in particular drain abilities) are your friend, although I recommend against Freya because she's not good at quick damage.
OK, the next boss went down without a hitchYeah, that one is probably the easiest one.

Fynn
06-21-2017, 09:09 AM
I actually got him with Freya! Just don't jump when he does the thing and makes you think about it.

So the breather boss is out of the way. So far the really challenging ones were Sephex and Wolf Kanno. But I noticed that when you change around your setups, they don't get just slightly easier - you just win. In that way, it's pretty much the same type of difficulty as SMT or Dark Souls - you go in, die, take notes, and try again. It's fun.

Psychotic
06-21-2017, 09:12 AM
That is exactly what I'm shooting for, yes! Although way easier than those games, I want everyone to win on their second or third try at worst. I've never game overed to 5 or 6, but 6 especially with all the statuses provides a little bit of a punch even if you know what you're doing.

I think once you get the game and how it works you can get through most of the rest without game overs, especially with power creep, so don't lose heart if Sephex and Kanno are pounding you!

Failing that, usual stuff like redownloading the file and using 7zip instead of WinRAR are worth a go.

There is only one adaptive boss, by the way. And I think it'll be obvious who and what it is and why, and it's also the quickest and easiest fight there is xD

Have been for a few hours, yeah.Dude nice work! No, that boss does not adapt. My advice is to try to hit some of the status effects, you should have plenty of room to make sure all four are possible. Draw Fire is also pretty useful in physical stages, I think stage 3 especially. Also if there's any phase shift that's been giving you grief, save up your best limits for that and burst through it to get onto the next one.

Although it's not over yet, of course. Now you have to leave the tower and go out into the desert! Or as I like to call it, the Open World section of the game because that's trendy. I'm curious if anyone has actually been out there yet, even by accident. krissy and VTG did some great music for out there too.

So I kind of have a teeny tiny minor gripe. Unless it's a limit break, characters can't get past the damage limit. But if they hit a target with their weakness, they deal either max damage or near max damage. Getting their attack power up at that point seems kind of pointless, so I've honestly never found a use for Bubba so far. My idea of balancing this would be to either limit the overall damage dealt, or let beefed up characters go over the damage limit.

But of course, I could be dead wrong and it's your game, but I just thought this could be a useful idea to throw out there :monster:

When the crystal shows up, when you smash it it'll reset your timer. Just gotta burst him really hard over the start of the fight. Dark damage (and in particular drain abilities) are your friend, although I recommend against Freya because she's not good at quick damage.

he casts reflect that lasts for the same 8 turns that my pink orbs over my guys last for! is there a status element im affected by im not aware of? cause they all get doomed right after the pink balls over their heads reach 0

No no, it's a fair point. I would really like a discussion about the battle system, balancing, strengths, weaknesses and so on, as this is only Version 1. More to come. But I also think it's a conversation best timed for a few days from now once all is said and done. There are ideas for future endeavours, I think.

To give you a quick hot take on that though, I do find Bubba's boost to be incredibly useful myself. If we zero in on weaknesses then of course the impact will be relatively negligible. Where it shines is on multi-hit skills and non-elemental ones. Nut's Wild Swipes, for example, or Scruffington's Thief's Revenge. Plus it also just raises the generic damage of more general utility skills like Formy's breaks and drain abilities. Plus naturally the impact on the two damage limit breaking limit breaks (...what the hell did I just type) is sublime. But, more anon, perhaps.

Yeah, the pink balls are a doom countdown. You need to smash Sephex down to 60 or 65%ish health before they hit 0. Either use dispel (Fynn has it and Psychotic has Banishing Blade which also does it) to take his reflect away, or use physical Dark attacks and ignore reflect. Shauna's Drain Strike and Nut's Furious Reckoning both fit that bill.

I'm not sure exactly what it is. After I started the quest I interacted with one every time I saw it, then the game randomly decided to say "hey, there's the first one" at one of them. It may have somehow not started before, as well. Totally possible to be standing in the wrong spot when you turn the quest in and get stuck, though :p

I used the basic starter shards for most of the game. It wasn't until the special bosses that I changed it up. For some I had Psy with basic SWD damage, Nut and Freya with superstartpower thingy, then Bubba and Fynn with stronger heals. Another variation I frequently used was Shauna instead of Bubba. Our laughing buddy was the first fight I used three mega-shards, giving one to Psy as well, so that two of the adds were gone by early second turn, and the third was often dispelled. Desert tent battle was the only one I used four on, adding it to Bubba to use at the start.

Bubba and Fynn were my most used characters. Shauna was the character I would swap Bubba out with if I needed an additional big heal instead of a smaller AOE one. I used Psy in about half the fights of the game. My early party was significantly different to my late game one. Early one I used Scruffington for thieving and either Fox or Pumpkin depending on the fight, or sometimes both. By late game Freya's and Nut's limit breaks were too strong to ignore. I used Life Siphon to build them up quickly, which I later adapted into my Psy strategy, too.

The hardest fight was the one just after reaching the key, which took me several hours.

Hmm, exact same thing happens when I try to equip Psy's Banishing Blade- maybe there's a bug right before battles where you can't change skills?

EDIT: Ah, you're right Psy, that's what it was - time to give the boss battle another try! :)

EDIT 2: Lol the jerk crystal appeared and then the doom spell activated right after.

It seems that Psy's Banishing Blade works to remove the Reflect spell but Fynn's Dispel reflects back onto Fynn. I'm still trying to find a party that can make the jerk crystal appear in time to destroy it.

So here's our official bug list, which will be fixed when I first patch it. I have also mentioned methods of temporarily avoiding them. Big thanks to theundeadhero in particular for a couple of these!


Main character becomes stuck if you skip through the intro. FIX: Watch the intro and let the camera pan down.
You can become stuck in a snowman following a sidequest. FIX: Fast travel to teleport out!
Raistlin's text is half-finished, talking about accidental fires. FIX: Kill Raistlin, then you'll never have to look at it again
The Ring of Storms and Venomsward Talisman accessories can't be equipped. FIX: There isn't one yet :( But neither is *critical*!


Edit: Fynn's Dispel should not be affected by reflect. Oops!

When the crystal shows up, when you smash it it'll reset your timer. Just gotta burst him really hard over the start of the fight. Dark damage (and in particular drain abilities) are your friend, although I recommend against Freya because she's not good at quick damage.

he casts reflect that lasts for the same 8 turns that my pink orbs over my guys last for! is there a status element im affected by im not aware of? cause they all get doomed right after the pink balls over their heads reach 0Ah right. Yeah, the pink balls are a doom countdown. You need to smash Sephex down to 60 or 65%ish health before they hit 0. Either use dispel (Fynn has it and Psychotic has Banishing Blade which also does it) to take his reflect away, or use physical Dark attacks and ignore reflect. Shauna's Drain Strike and Nut's Furious Reckoning both fit that bill.

No idea why but in my game Sephex reflects dispel from Fynn. You can imagine the eye twitching when I tried to get rid of it for the first time.

Patch 1 released

Download here. (https://www.dropbox.com/s/bt4urgspmimjoq0/Death%20of%20a%20Fansite%20Patch%201.rar?dl=0)

Patch notes:

Fixed bug that meant players got stuck if they skipped through the intro
Fixed bug that meant the Ring of Storms and Venomsward Talisman could not be equipped. Sadly, existing copies of these items on your current save files will still be broken. New ones that are acquired will work however.
Fixed bug that saw Fynn's Dispel ability be affected by the Reflect status.
Fixed bug that saw players getting stuck inside a snowman.
Fixed broken Raistlin 2nd Floor description text.


To install, simply extract the contained "Death of a Fansite" folder to the directory in which you have installed the game. ie, if you installed it to My Documents, extract the files to My Documents. It should ask you if you want to overwrite five files. Say yes to all.

Failing this, you can manually install it - there are just 5 .json files to install. If you follow the directories you should see they belong in Death of a Fansite\www\data.

I have updated the download link in the OP so that the full game download is patched. Therefore if you downloaded it after I made this post, you don't need to install the patch as it is pre-installed.

This is really, really well done Psy.


I also laughed waaaaaaay too much at Raistlin's giant head floating through the clouds - and his Euphoric Eugene move!.

I honestly found the trio to be pretty hard and I had to sleep them what the hell are you all doing to them?! Like my design ethos with that battle was "you need to put them to sleep and focus on one at a time or else the damage taken will be too much" but clearly i failed xD

Although I did have to nerf them as they were too powerful when I was testing (you'll notice they all have set moves which don't do damage for turn 1 - that's why) so maybe my memories are of god mode trio, idk

Fynn
06-22-2017, 05:11 PM
Formy used Sleep buster on two of them, then full break on the remaining one. Psy used Protectga, Shauna used Shellga. I used Holy and everyone else just focused on the one awake with their best attacks . Rinse and repeat.

Psychotic
06-22-2017, 05:25 PM
Actually for the Trio, I think where I went wrong was upping the chances of sleep. You have a 50% chance of putting them to sleep. I should've had it at anywhere between 25-40% on reflection. Maybe I'll fix that in a patch! The idea behind having a lower chance is to have the player desperately trying to survive while praying that they can land sleep, but I also didn't want it to be too heavily dependent on RNG and players losing for no other reason than bad luck. Of course, you can't entirely avoid RNG and nor should you try, it's about finding a balance.

I'm interested that #5 gave you trouble! I assume the counters and the blinds did that.

With #7, he was entirely too weak during testing and could be sneezed out of you way. He has some of the lowest stats, and I think his rage mode activated at 30% health and gave a 135% stat boost. I upped the health it took to trigger it, and he now gets a whopping 167% boost I believe. That's why Formy with his stacking debuffs (and indeed Water elemental limit break) is critical for that fight.

Not sure if this is relevant to you Psy, but when I used Bubba's skill that allows you to transfer LB - it didn't do what I thought it did? Possibly bad description or dud skill

I used it on Shauna - thinking it would transfer what Bubba had filled up in his LB bar and give it to her to take her to 100% - but it just wiped off her whole LB bar - no other stats changed - no health increases on anyone.

That's weird because you're right, that's exactly what it's meant to do and indeed what it's always done during testing. Let me know if it happens again please!

I'll look to it. I wonder if it pushed the limit above max and it looped around to zero. If others could also share experiences with Gifted Symphony I'd be grateful!

Through floor 4, and this is brilliant. Love the FFVI trivia section. I was able to go into the background in Floor 4. Not sure if this was an intended secret path but I didn't find anything. :(

EDIT: I was also able to walk through the wall by the locked door on Floor 5. Loved this floor, Denmark is so cute!

I've found some locations where you can walk past things you shouldn't, Psy. Two more are on Sephex's floor and the witch level. It'll all be in the notes I send you after I finish the game again. Fairly close, now, so maybe by tomorrow.

I also meant to mention something about Bubba's Gifted Symphony.

I kinda assumed the LB would be cumulative and add whatever Bubba had to the person I was transferring it to. A player had slightly less than 3/4 of the bar full and Bubba had slightly less than 1/4. When I used the ability, it just replaced the mostly full bar with Bubba's mostly empty bar.

...I just realised I have been painting "NPCs can't go here" instead of "Players can't go here" everywhere :lol: So that explains the walking into walls! It was designed to keep certain animal elements from either escaping their confines or alternatively blocking players into tiny spaces.

Psychotic
06-23-2017, 08:14 AM
I figured out the Gifted Symphony issue too. It's set to SET User Limit Bar to Bubba's rather than ADD to User Limit Bar. That'll be fixed in the patch, but for now I would recommend only using it on people who have a lower limit bar than his.

Thanks for the heads up, folks!

Del Murder
06-23-2017, 08:52 AM
Well, I beat it. Odd that Raistlin was the last boss, but the ending was great so who cares? I wonder what happens if you pick that second option at the end there? I'm guessing automatic game over or something. No worries though, that's obviously the end so everything is as it should be. Fine game, Psychotic. Great work overall.

Fynn
06-23-2017, 08:56 AM
So one thing I noticed, Psy

After you beat Del and Loony BoB comes to you and reveals all, if you have followers turned on, he just walks over them to reach you. I know this is kind of a limitation of the engine, but maybe he could, idk, approach you from the side? Might be less dramatic but it definitely mitigates some of the awkwardness.

You can actually do a "Gather followers" command so that they all come and stand on the same tile as the main character. I'll put that in and that should sort that out nicely.

Finished testing things up past the last boss. Still have the desert to test, but here's a list for you. I would have PM'd it, but that would be a long message and you can't attach files to PMs.

Psychotic
06-23-2017, 11:36 AM
Thank you! I will fix these in my patch. The only thing I will add to that is that there is a difference between British and American English on the spelling of practice/practise:

What does practise mean? Practise is the British English spelling of practice. It can be used in all contexts outlined above, with one caveat.

Before the 20th century, practise was used as the verb form of this word in both American and British English.

Today, British writers and editors still prefer to spell the verb this way, but Americans have made practice standard

But I do flit between Brit and American spellings (see my use of Armor for example) in this so there is something of a lack of consistency there. Maybe as you're an American character I will spell it the American way!

Fynn
06-23-2017, 11:43 AM
I can't remember what exactly it was, but there was a moment when I used a very British fixed phrase in my banter line and that was pretty jarring :p Granted, I know the banter is pretty randomized when it comes to who says what, so it's not really something that can be fixed. Not that I WANT it to be fixed - it was just pretty weird :p

Psychotic
06-23-2017, 11:46 AM
I toned down a lot of my Britishness in the second draft. A lot more people were called wankers and twats in the original. A Psy - Bubba - Formy - Fox - Shauna party would make this realistic, though!

Fynn

I wouldn't have mentioned that one, but it just seemed weird having the same character spell it two different ways :p I don't care which one you use. Went with the American because its what I am.

Oh, so there is more? Dammit, I don't want to leave this paradise. :(

As for gameplay, I really like the job classes and various skills. A lot of variety, and I keep discovering new devastating attacks as I experiment with it. It's also cool that some characters have some elements but not others, forcing you to switch up your party. You really do have to think about what skills you set for each battle because with only 2 slots you can be pretty useless if you pick the wrong ones.

Psychotic
06-23-2017, 07:43 PM
Sweet jebus the third Raistlin battle is kicking my ass.He is a tricky smurfer, yeah. I think it requires some status healing items like the Smelling Salts and Awakening (I can't remember what I called them but I'm sure you know what I mean) if you can get to a shop and possibly even status resisting accessories on your critical characters. Baloki's shop expands as you climb (and indeed your odds of getting Silvers and Golds from crates increase too)

As far as the battle itself goes, as the battle goes on longer he breaks out his most powerful attacks so do consider saving your best limits for the end - a similar principle to the Jiro battle. You may have become aware of a situation in the battle where he takes a rest. Perfect time to heal and pour on magical ice damage (Pumpkin is queen of this fight). Finally, hitting him with Slow and/or Confusion (Bubba can do both statuses) can always get you a breather too - you are much more likely to get Slow to stick than Confusion though.

Also, is that not the best version of that song ever? I smurfing love it so much. The FFV main theme bursting on in there out of nowhere, it's beautiful.

Patch 2 released

Download here. (https://www.dropbox.com/s/w2atf67jti06h3c/DoaF%20Patch%202%20.rar?dl=0)

Patch notes:

Fixed bug which meant Bubba's Gifted Symphony ability replaced the target's limit gauge with his rather than adding to it.
Fixed bug where stealing from Raistlin gave out a blank dummy item
Fixed bug which saw players getting Sephex's Robe from an Armor Crate despite being told they had received Pumpkin's Robe. They will now receive Pumpkin's Robe as planned.
Fixed various unsolid walls, floors, and so on that should've been solid, particularly on Floors 3, 4 and 8.
Various spelling and phrasing corrections to the game's script.


To install, simply extract the contained "Death of a Fansite" folder to the directory in which you have installed the game. ie, if you installed it to My Documents, extract the files to My Documents. It should ask you if you want to overwrite five files. Say yes to all.

Failing this, you can manually install it - there are several .json files to install. If you follow the directories you should see they belong in Death of a Fansite\www\data.

I have updated the download link in the OP so that the full game download is patched. Therefore if you downloaded it after I made this post, you don't need to install the patch as it is pre-installed.

T'was a great song. I mostly just completely re-jiggered my team and beat him without trouble. I actually only had Fynn set to remove status effects and very few items, so I tossed on all of the fire resisting accessories I could and used Bubba and Fynn for healing (Shauna too in a pinch). Fynn didn't survive the battle, but everyone else was still going strong at the end.

I feel all your pain, and am a little glad I'm not the only one who had a lot of trouble with him. My second playthrough I used Formy for the fight and it did make it a bit easier, as well as already having three Limit Break Shards. I still died to him more than once knowing what I was getting into.

I would advise:

Psy with his Banishing Blade, Siphon Life, and a Limit Break.
Nut with Siphon Life, Triple Attack, and a Limit Break.
Freya with Siphon Life, Drain Jump, and a Limit Break.
Formy with Siphon Life, Full Break, and xxx
Fynn with Curaga, Esuna, and maybe the healing shard. I'm not actually sure if he can full heal without it since he always had it.

Sephex
06-24-2017, 05:08 AM
I stopped playing for now because I am pretty burnt out from work and just want to chill now. Next time I play I'll try that set up. Thanks for the tip!

I do feel cool knowing that I am a hard boss battle. I'm glad my stupid joke actually made itself useful for a change. That and how it brilliantly ties into the crystal along with a damn cool end game FFIV homage with my favorite Final Fantasy IV track "Within the Giant." And having "Megalovania" as the battle theme? Yup, I'm a typical Undertale fan that loves Sans. Though I am tired of it as the rest of the internet at this point, I still deeply love that game at the end of the day and it was really cool seeing a boss battle of a hyper exaggerated version of me with that music.

Sorry that I'm stroking my own [c'mon Sephex, you know better than that don't use that word~Sephex]. I just appreciate the way it was pulled off. Looking forward to what "I" have to say once I beat me.

I'm sincerely glad you liked it Sephex, I tried to pick the Sephexiest music I could!

Also for anyone else struggling with floor 11, I advise hitting his poison weakness. RPG Maker doesn't visibly display poison damage (your only clue is to watch his HP bar creep down) but trust me when I say that it does a lot more damage than you'd think, particularly if you get him early and keep applying it.

I climbed down a hole and got my ass handed to me by The Man :monster: Aha! I'm glad someone else is now out and about in the desert.

My tip for that one is to bring Pumpkin and Shauna and make sure you have the four elements covered with them. Then have Bubba drop Frenetic Beat on whoever has the enemy weakness. Disney Rainbow Strike is OP in that battle as it doesn't cause an element change but is guaranteed to hit a weakness.

Yeah, I'll give that a shot. My attempts so far gradually shifted to boost Nuts damage, give him extra turns with Bubba, try to mitigate the damage, and pray really hard. The thing I've struggled with is getting the damage high enough to murder the shit out of him.

I am also in the open world section and so far I have found The Man and Iceglow. I didn't bother with the first one's weaknesses and just belted him with non-elemental stuff. I also found the desert town and the three 'things' that were requested of me, so I need to bring them back to her for my due reward. There was also a boss fight there that I skipped because it sounded hard.

Wait, not to nitpick, but are you sure it's SaGa Frontier and not Romancing SaGa? The soundchip sounds much more like a SNES game than a PS1 game. But maybe hate just the synthesizer the composer used? I'm not that familiar with the SaGa soundtracks

Simply on account to reference that I was temporarily renamed Ultima Weapon for the FFVI team in the Gang Wars and partially because the Veldt theme makes my eye twitch ever since that one time I tried to give Gau all of his rages.

Other than that, the game has been a real treat. Great job Psy!
