Manall's FF1 v2.2.2

Another one for the start of 2023!


One of my goals with 2.2.2 is to smooth some of the steeper damage thresholds, specifically to aid the Fighter. Fighters will also become ever so slightly stronger by the very end, and this will collaborate with the minor absorb changes to improve combat flow.


Keep in mind, this will not allow for a massive amount of extra damage. Rather, the changes are geared to make turns against specific armored foes more meaningful. This will also build off what I started in version 2.2, which saw improvements to several important melee weapons. I’d like to think this will be the last time the issue needs to be addressed.

Also, at the request of a fan, I have also added a new bonus patch which disables the flashing spell animation. I'm rather proud of this hilariously simple edit as it required lots of reverse engineering and my exceptionally novice wisdom in the field of assembly. But I really wanted to make this happen so that the game is easier on the eyes, and perhaps even playable by some who otherwise would have to steer clear. I hope it helps!

I determined that these first two updates of 2023 would be simple enough to get out in a brief window of relative calm. I do not know when I will again have time to sit down and spend serious time on mods. Waluigi RPG is still overdue for its own update, and I have not forgotten. Please be patient; it will come when time permits.

Manall's HoMM3 v1.5

SURPRISE!


I've been working on this one quietly for a bit. It only recently dawned on me that I first mentioned this update a whole year ago. I had no idea it had taken this long to get to, but things have been fucking insane for a while so that probably has a lot to do with it


This is an awesome patch. It's so far the largest for this project regarding content, quality of life and variety. However, above all the fun and conveniences there is one change which rises to the top:


TAN HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH YELLOW.


Anyhoo, there are way too many great things to list here, so go on over and check out the whole shebang. I know this one took a while, but I think it'll be worth it.


Oh, and before you do that...THERE'S A HOMM3 BOARD GAME COMING OUT THIS YEAR!! (That is, if Poland survives to see the ship date)


(phew... I've barely had time, but it's been done for a bit so I finally rounded up all the pieces for pushing to the website.


I still have plans to update FF1 and WLRPG, but it's going to be a minute. Be patient please.)

If any of my projects bring you joy, the button above will help me to continue.
