v1.51 is now live on all servers. This is a small update bundled with a feature that will have a very big impact: you can now select your battle target (enemies or party members) using hotkeys. Last week's update brought mappable hotkeys for items and abilities, and with today's addition of targeting hotkeys players can now control entire battles without ever touching the mouse.
Furthermore, the ESC key will now close all open windows in battle and cancel your selected action during the strategy round when in a party. Version 1.51 is rounded out with bug fixes for a variety small issues introduced in last week's update.
Having essentially become our official tournament overseeer, NEStalgia moderator Caer Death has taken things one step further and started to record videos of the tournaments he runs:

Calling all artists
Any artists out there looking for new ways to contribute to NEStalgia should check out my latest post on the contributions board. We're in need of battle spell animations for almost every ability in the game, and they're actually a lot of fun to make. If we get enough submissions then you could possibly see these animations pop up in the game within a week or two. Have at it!
