So, I figured out something in RPG Tsukuru 2. In Game Test Mode, there's a mode switch that is turned ON at start, that makes battles easy by making all standard attacks one-turn knockdowns (not spells or items). I thought the ROM I was using was bugged because it's a translation hack (that's only partially finished-and it does break some of the world map pieces), but no, it's a feature I didn't know about.
Yeah; been mucking about with that. It's easier to get into and out of. Unfortunately, anything super-immersive is put on hold because life is causing me problems, the unavoidable ones... :(
