Unfusing Less

Hack of Breath of Fire II

Description:

In the original game, a shamanized player character lost his shaman fusion every time his HP fell to or below a quarter of his maximum HP, in particular:

  • if HP was greater than 0, but less than or equal to 1/4 of max_HP, PC entered a wounded (critical health) state with modified sprite
  • if HP was less than or equal to 0, PC got KO’d

Those conditions fleshed out into code which, with some variations, was a part of these in-game situations:

  • getting unfused in battle by taking critical (that puts in critical health) or fatal (greater than or equal to HP) damage by attacks, spells or items
  • getting unfused on overworld by taking critical item damage (Bait/Crappie, Wisdom Fruit)
  • getting unfused on overworld by taking critical poison damage

The goal of the “Unfusing Less” hack (abbr. “UL“) was to rewrite conditions as to when to perform unfusion, to make the game generally a more enjoyable experience (most people’s complaint about the shaman system was how easy it was to lose a shaman and how hard it was to walk back to base to re-apply).

As of now, things that UL has changed are:

  • shamanized characters will never lose fusion by falling to critical health in battle by attacks, spells or items; on overworld - by items and poison. However, fatal damage will still unfuse and KO them (not the case with items and poison though - those leave characters with 1 HP).
