im playing the game a bit and i just killed the "pig rex" boss. it was a hell of a boss, i was doing a good dmg, but his hp never droped.. kyrie died a lot @_@ well, the fing is, im playing now the (J) version.. and the first dungeon, in the US version i almost died like 3 or 4 times. in the J, almost 1, and the dmg i took was really low, the exp gainned after the battle, was a good exp. i will play it for a little longger to see, but i think the US version HAS a AP check, and the AP check gives low exp, doubles (probably) monsters hp and give a significant boost to them, leaving the game on Survive mode. i got the undub patch 'couse the voice acting is horrible. i want to ask, since i dont know hacking, if there is a possibility of putting ENG text in the J rom, becouse i think the J dont have AP check. thx in advance.
