I figured it was time for an update, so without spoiling too much, here's what I've been working on...

Picking up where we last stopped, the next version of the rebalance mod (now zenith mod) will focus on expanding the enemy roster and making the areas change as you progress in the story, kill bosses, visit places, etc. This where the mod gets its new name, since every area will gradually mature towards its final form, its "zenith" so to speak.

For example, at the moment I'm wrapping up the Sanctum area. Before I expanded the enemy roster, it had a total of 17 different enemies. Now it has 33. Of course, only a fraction of them will be all available on your 1st visit. But over time, old foes will be replaced by new, more powerful ones. Ideally, every area would get this treatment; it's a lot of work so we'll just have to see how it goes.

Here's a preview of the Sanctum area, after you've set all the relevant flags (spoilers ofc):

^What you see is subject to change btw.

Well, that's it for now. Release date is TBD. Don't expect too many videos and stuff, I'd rather you guys experience the goodies firsthand. Nothing beats the thrill of discovery, and that's what I hope to offer with the new version of the mod.

Very excited, started a new playthrough a few days ago despite lurking your rebalance topic for months. This is extremely exciting to an old timey player like me. Mad props.

Don't rush, take your time, make an amazing mod!

Hello there. Good to know that the mod is being played. I didn't advertise it as well as I could but I intend to correct that. Hope you enjoy it!

Well, it's simple. You download the patch and apply it to a (US) Vagrant Story rom, then play it on emulator, or burn it to a CD and play it on console. If you mean in terms of actual gameplay, there's nothing you should really know in advance; just play as you would normally.

In case you missed, there's already a build of the mod available for download at ngplus:

You'll need a program like Ppf-o-Matic to apply the patch. You can get it here:

Ofc, the version at ngplus does not include the features I'm currently working on. But it's plenty enough to keep you guys busy until zenith mod is out.

Brilliant idea. I'm downloading the previous version from ngplus and will keep an eye out for updates.

Heh, thanks. That procedure really uncapped the zone file; even now there's still room left in it for more enemies. Looks like I'll run out of ideas before I run out of space for them.

I'ma wait for the final release, but very cool, man! Years ago I started building a Vagrant Story sequel from scratch, so I understand the passion. Keep it up!

For those who are playing, make sure to download the latest version (v.091) at ngplus.net, it fixes a nasty bug at IMB1/B2 with bosses respawning over and over. Apply it to a clean rom. Any save files you might have will still be compatible.

Super excited for this as always.

This deserved its own topic, but I'll just share it here:

10/10 would play it.
