I actually pump up the party to level 1000 after the boss before the final one. It goes with the story. I see no point in people grinding for 3 hours just to get to level 1000 to beat that final boss.
Lexima Drive is a bit specific in this case, because it ignores defense (and Chaos Drive ignores magic defense).

I'd be ok with a 20 minutes battle to be honest with the boss changing his pattern every 4-5 minutes. I want to challenge the player and his understanding of the game mechanics, not torture him.

So this will be running the Ace engine, correct? I think I remember you and KK trying to get all the kinks worked out. If so, really stoked to play it. Hate XP's stuttering and Direct2D drawing BS.

Yup, it's running pretty smoothly now on XPA. I think I was able to work out most kinks. I kept some FPS-specific stuff like faster movement, most animation speeds, etc. It would be too much work to make that stuff work. Plus, lots of animations wouldn't work with 60 FPS, because they are kinda missing frames so it would be like 2 frames one graphic would be displayed, then another for only one frame. But all in all, it all looks pretty good and I don't notice any problems. CP definitely runs faster than ever.

I was finishing up the 0.2b version of the Tilemap last night. Hopefully I can test it one last time to make sure I didn't screw something up while consolidating it and release it as a "debug" version tonight (my time).

But yeah, pretty glad Blizz helped finding a lot of the little hard-to-find bugs~
