Bug Fixes / Miscellaneous

  • Fixed a bug that prevents the Tenacity Skill from activating when switching in another Monstie during battle.
  • Fixed a bug that occurs after selling trade-in items via "Sell Trade-in Items" that prevents a player's funds from increasing if the total amount reaches 10,000,000 or more zenny while also causing their sold items to disappear.
  • Fixed a bug that occurs when a player enters a battle while using Lava Dive, causing them to become immobile once the battle is finished and they return to the field.
  • Fixed a bug that prevents the game from finishing loading after a player presses buttons repeatedly when changing the time of day at a Catavan Stand or taking a Catavan to another location (during a loading screen).
  • There was a bug that occurs during a specific Subquest when the player is carrying an egg in a Monster Den and enters a battle. When the battle finishes, the eggs in the nest have regenerated, but when the player picks up one of these eggs, they cannot exit the den. This bug has been fixed.
  • Fixed a bug that occurs when four players are engaged in a Pair Battle in Versus Battles and both sides lose simultaneously, but rather than enter into sudden death, the game stops functioning properly.
  • Other miscellaneous bug fixes have been made.
