Will the latest patch work with previous (1.7) save states, or clean start needed? Thanks!

Went for the clean start, regarding ^^^

First minor bug report, Arachnid + Tzin battle with Cloud and Tifa, says 'Pincer Attack' but both characters ended up on the left side of the screen, to the further right position, yet dealing back row damage. Have them staggered (Cloud front Tifa back) in menu / default

Will post more as I come accross it - 

Cheers,
Web

Since when can Avalon not equpid the Tai'chi cap?! Are the rest of the HP caps also inaccessible to him??

I will maintain my belief that the phantom train fight remains one of the hardest in the game, this fight has given me trouble since version 1.3 regardless of level. ...onwards

Thanks DFA! Not sure how I missed that shoutout here...sorry about that, I appreciate it though. I had a fun Birthday from what I recall lol.

Sorry for the semi-late responses to btw, been some emergency burning fires here in northern california which crippled us here the last few days, so it's good to be back and still have my house!


Webbhead - upgrading is fine from 1.7, no worries there. just make sure it's a clean ROM you patch to as always.
Thanks for the report on that formation, I shall take a look into that!
One of these latest versions I removed the Tai'chi cap from Avalon I do recall just to not get his Havoc doing OP damage so early on, so for balancing reasons. I'm pretty sure the other HP boosting equipment can still go on him, though.
Fear the Train! lol... it is, it is. For some reason I always like the Train battle to be damn near a final battle in terms of difficulty, and I'm not too sure why lol.

Tiny little bug, floating continent, I cleared the path to the battle chest as usual, walking up to the land blocking the stairs. The tile before the stairs wouldn't let me pass through it though despite looking like floor. After I fought a battle, or could have been a tele-hole to and fro, the 'blocking' tile was no longer blocking though, so it wasn't a big deal.

And yeah probably not a bad idea to prevent Havoc + Tai chi combo, gets out of hand quickly haha. 

Smooth sailing otherwise, finishing up Floating Continent now. Glad the board is back up (figures it went down for a few days just as I started playing)

No rewards for killing elder dragon? Or is it a chance drop I didn't get?

Looks like the only difference going from Diamond Armor to Crystal Mail is +2 defense and +2 mag. def... would like to think the crystal mail could be better or the diamond armor not as good? both have -3 speed, the same 6 chars can equip, and neither one has elemental bonus/weakness.

Just my 2 cents

Wooh! Coldfang fight was phan-figgity-fucking tastic! Perhaps taken on too early, but after 30+ recharges, an elixir, and 30 minutes, that sweet sweet sound of crackle and crumble came boisterously through. 

Plus I LOVE that song, it's so well done. 

Blue Essence ftw in that fight.

Is the song for the Coldfang fight "SOM Boss Theme" ? The music player plays the correct tune, but searching online the Secret of Mana Boss Theme song is a different one... a little confused

Dark Heart was a complete pushover - could definitely use some re-work. I did not feel super powered up a moment ago but this Dragon was way easier than any of the rest so far... Would like to see him a lot stronger in any future patches. All he did was hit me for 1000 damage a couple of times and down he went without much concern...

3 Veterans fight, right after walking away from this battle^^^ was infinitely harder, yeesh barely survived that unexpected insanity
