I find setting everyone's skills to 'S' totally breaks the game.
Pick any character with continual attack, damage, swing, heavy damage, holy dash, and accuracy -- throw juan in with S level bujutsu (boosts physical damage by 10%), and nei with maddness song... your character will pretty much one shot everything. Very boring.
Working on compiling list of codes to change character's maximum possible skill rank / fixed slots / # of free slots to reduce the cheese, but still make characters like Leo and Nicolaus not completely useless due to having half the skills of any other character. And for giggles making bujutsu trainer teach all the skills...
//fred has more free slots?
Example in pnach format:
//fred has skill apptitudes
//tutor and buju teach all skills (can't load state, must activate code then load a save file from mem card)
// also has some visual bugs atm
Would be nice to be able to get in touch with http://www.herrvillain.com/
owner / admin and add codes there in addition to my hacking notes to his/her hacking section. But no idea how to reach him or her
