If you were to take the Third Eye and direct it's 2x effect from Evade to level I wonder if it would work.

So it would give 2x level in that portion of the battle calculation? That would require moving some code around, but nothing too complex.

The menu might look a little weird, but it should be doable.

Are you using the printed effect of 2x Evade or the used effect of 2.5x Evade?

Since stats are preset by level I thought maybe it would adjust all stats maybe after a battle.

As for the 2.0 or 2.5 I remember hearing about it but I'm not sure if I actually have it fixed.

Ideally I'd like to make it as a duplicate so as not to erase the third eye.

I think I gave you the menu fix for that.

Stats are calculated based on the current and previous levels.  To temporarily double the level and grant stats for it in a battle would take some time to calculate. Not sure how long exactly, but there might be some lag. You'd also have to have a copy of the old stats somewhere to restore.

If you gave me the fix for it then I used it.

I actually don't think storing the old stats is necessary (except the level).
The Third Eye automatically reverts the one stat it changes back to the original once it's removed, if it can do it for Evade it should be able to do it for level.

Let's say the accessory makes you level 50, when you take it off and it puts you back to 25 the game will notice those aren't level 25 stats and lower them (though most likely only at next level up) at least that's what happens when you give a character starting stats higher than what they should have at that level.

The Third Eye doesn't change your actual stat. If equipped, it alters the display and does a calculation before determining if you get hit.

Oh I see, still do you think there's any merit to this idea?

Maybe. It would take some effort and and I'm not sure how much benefit there is.

The only thing I know for certain is that the game will correct your stats if they don't match your level.

The inspiration for the idea was the level doubler move some bosses use in ff  xii, thought it might be fun to abuse but only if it's not a big deal to do.

Now that I think about it some more, it might be a little more doable. Who are you giving this too, and how?

Level doubler would be pretty cool.

Creating an new accessory to do it would be ideal, didn't have a specific character in mind is it easier to do just one?

Just running down possible things that need to be changed for this accessory. I've got some ideas.

Do you still want to cap it at 99?

Allowing it to cap at 198 would be cool, but probably be complicated.
