    Ah.... see I didn't know you had to do any patching. That would be why I didn't notice any difference probably.

    On the old webpage I offer the full ROM and the patch, but if you download the full ROM you don't need the patch file. The patch is an option for those who don't want to spend 30 minutes downloading the 2mb ROM file. I will be taking off the full ROM tonight along with eventually phasing out the old page all together.

    Marble, the damage scale was reduced by near 50%.

    So.. the 2MB rom file is the FULL rom? Oh, well then I guess I do have the hard type.

    Are the Repo men supposed to cast Flare on themselves?

    DocFrance focus on killing one enemy at a time, especially the ones with the most powerful attacks (like Hazer). Try using Cyan's Retort for big counter damage. Also have your ghosts possess the hardest monsters. I hope that helps.

    Repo Man is supposed to cast Flare on himself. Flare is one of Repo Man's sketch attacks meaning he must cast the spell in battle. However there is no way Terra can survive Flare so early in the game so instead of creating a cheap instant death situation for the player I had Repo Man cast Flare on himself.

    Meh. What the hell? I died in the Narsh Mines with Terra by herself in one hit from one of those damn rats! That's frickin' crap!

    I managed to scrape and crawl my way through the Phantom Train, only to realize that the train itself was ten times easier than its passengers. So now I'm stuck on Baren Falls, and the fish-boss-thing can kill me instantly with El Nino. And I just realized that I didn't fight an Overlord on the Train, so I won't be able to get that Rage for Gau.

    When all else fails.... level up. I got caught up in awful fantasy for the past little bit so I haven't been playing this version (I'm only at the raft ride) but I found in the original hard version I had to level up in a couple areas to scrape through the game. I'm not saying huge levels, but if you're getting killed in one hit from a monster, it's probably time to get a couple levels.
    On that fishie there's not much you can do but aurabolt, quadraslice (if you got it) or retort/disbatch. Use potions if you need heal. Put the boys in the back row if you haven't already cause their techs/blitz do same damage from the back (not like it matters against El nino, but any little bit helps). Besides that, good luck.
    Don't worry about the rage as long as you fought a stray cat and a hazer along with those Soldiers (or Commanders??) in the imperial camp. You get catscratch, bolt2, fire2 from those. That's enough power for now.

    Now I'm on the mine-cart escape from Vector. I'm incredibly low on healing items, and my party is Locke, Sabin, and Cyan. Guh. I might have to restart.

    I like how you changed the Opera lyrics, but did you have to keep the original correct options? That threw me off three times! But it was funny seeing the remarks...

    Heh, yeah one of the ideas behind the Opera remix was to make you memorize the script again. By the way did you guys have Shadow and a ghost on the Phantom Train? I had a litte bit of a tough time on the Phantom Train but it wasn't THAT bad. With the boss I kinda figured the player might be tired from all the tough battles and may not want to fight a tough boss at that point. I try not to have too many really tough parts in a row. If I did that people would lose patience and their sanity.

    This patch is awesome. Thanks man! I'm playing it with the Expert Version patch, plus the US Retranslation patch, and it's just awesome.
