Kingdom Hearts: Critical Mix is a mod for Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix that adds new gameplay features, multiple quality of life improvements, and a very challenging Level 1 mode. This mod includes abilities on keyblades, similar to Kingdom Hearts 2 and beyond, a new progression system, and scaling keyblades similar to Kingdom Hearts 3. Any feedback and recommendations would be great, as there are some fairly substantial changes to the game with this mod. If there's anything I can do to improve it, I'd be happy to make changes and adjust it.

While this mod is created around a Level 1 Proud Mode experience, you can feel free to play on a lower difficulty for a less intense level of difficulty.

Make sure you take a look at the list of Keyblade Abilities so you know all the benefits of your equipped weapon!



NOTE: Aladdin interferes with the increase to damage taken and he causes Sora to take far less damage than normal.

  1. Place "3E68955A.pnach" in the "Cheats" folder in your PCSX2 install directory.
  2. Enable cheats in PCSX2. System -> Enable Cheats.
  3. After making your first save file, open "3E68955A.pnach" in notepad and delete the "Starting Abilities - DELETE AFTER SAVING" section. If you don't, you will not be able to unequip any of your abilities.
RECOMMENDED: In your PCSX2 controller settings, set "Right Stick Down" to do nothing. If you don't, you may accidentally move your command menu while rotating the camera.

New Gameplay Features

- EXP Zero

- Keyblades now come with a variety of abilities. The 6 empty abilities at the top of Sora's list are used for AP abilities given by keyblades.

List of Keyblade Abilities: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mPsC-zV6GKoX9euLi6xF79xunkD7Gt8uNWfVljk5L1g/edit?usp=sharing

- Keyblades also scale in power as you seal keyholes, which makes all keyblades endgame viable.

- Sora's HP, MP, Strength, and Accessory Slots are now increased by sealing the keyholes of worlds.

- Items now use the Auto-Reload system.

- Sora's movement speed has been increased.

- Sora has access to a wide variety of abilities from the start of the game.

- Sora has Combo Master (does not work during Guard Armor for some reason).

- Sora's base HP has been increased by a lot, but he also takes significantly more damage and his base defense has been reduced to 0. This reduces the effectiveness of +HP Items and Cure spells.

- Elemental Resistances are not affected by accessories. Resistance can instead be obtained through certain Keyblade abilities. (This is not reflected in your stats screen)

- Sora's damage output has been adjusted to deal adequate damage at level 1.

New Options

You can enable and disable these to best suit your preferences.

- 60FPS. Disable this if you have a weaker computer.

- KH2 Camera. Zooms the camera out for a better view of Sora's surroundings. Disable this if you prefer the closer KH1 camera.

- Cutscenes can be skipped the first time watching them.

- North America controls are enabled (X to attack, O to jump).

- The camera is now controlled with the Right Stick instead of L2 and R2.

- Solo Mode. Enable this if you want an even greater challenge.

NOTE: Solo Mode crashes the game during Guard Armor. It may crash during other areas. If your game crashes, this should be the first thing you disable.

Disabled Items

- Elixir (Converts into 1 Hi Potion and 1 Ether)

- Megalixir (Converts into 1 Mega Potion and 1 Mega Ether)

- Stat Boosts
