Hey guys, I just created a tiny mod that makes your characters start at Lv100, thus making the experience way different and harder.

--------------------------------------
WHAT DOES THIS MOD DO?
--------------------------------------
It increases the level of your characters to 100. Since enemy monsters scale with YOUR average level, the monsters all will be max level. To make it work, you must start a NEW GAME. (it will NOT change any of your previous savefiles)

This makes enemies having better drops and magics to draw, but they also become more dangerous. Making the posibility of a VERY DIFFERENT speedrun.

2) Select Open, and find your FF8 directory.

3) Locate and open the file at FINAL FANTASY VII/Data/lang-en/main.fs
(It can be used for lang-fr, or any other language)

DONE!

So, after some testing, it seems the first set of bosses doesn't scalate with your levels at all. The rest of the normal enemies does though, and some of them are really dangerous.

On Stream, I spent like 30 minutes diying over and over on the laguna dream 2, it requires some big preparations xD

Can you easily un-mod the game when you want to go back to playing regular FF8? I really want to try this out.

You just have to unistall the game and download it again from Steam.
Savefiles are stored on your documents folder, so you will not lose them
