TL;DR: What is up with the prices for Leg Armour? Do they need to have two values, one for the original game and one for the Definitive Edition?
I've been going through the equipment and updating the sell price to their base value, as per an old community decision. For expedience and to avoid calculation errors, I've been pulling the values from this page from the datamine:
It's mostly been occasional minor changes, such as someone forgetting to remove the effect of "Buy Stuff!" when entering the price. However, once I got to leg armour, every price was wrong, and in ways that seemingly have no relation to the price in the data. (For example: Grady Cuisses has a 'money' value of 2,120 in the data, yet were listed as having a sell price of 333.)
To be sure there wasn't an issue with the data, I checked in the DE version of the game; I found the sell prices were what I expected based on the data. I also tried looking at the datamine for the original edition of the game—easily done by changing the link above from "xb1de" to "xb1"—yet the prices are identical in both versions. So if it's not an error with the data, and it's not a change between versions, I thought it must have been a mistake on the part of the person who originally entered the prices, and continued making the changes. However, as I continued editing and every price continued to be incorrect, I grew increasingly uncomfortable. Eventually I checked the JCE, as well as a guide on GameFAQs, and they had the same "incorrect" prices.
While it is possible that the errors are all propagated from same source—likely the JCE—I find that unlikely, considering how many other items clearly did not have their data just lifted from the JCE.
My best guess is that there is a bug in the lookup of leg armour prices within the original game, which was corrected in the DE. This bug would mean that the price is only incorrectly accessed when selling, since shop prices are calculated, yet they seem to be accurate. (For example: 0-slot Grady Cuisses are sold for 21,200 in Colony 6, not 3,330.) However, I haven't been able to find any reference to such an error on the internet and, unfortunately, my Wii is packed at the moment, so I cannot load the original game to check the values.
Does anyone have any further knowledge on this subject? Can anyone confirm the difference in price between versions? If there is such a difference, what would be the best way to include the two values?
