I've gotten to the Stat Exp formula in my calc program, and it's giving me quite a headache.This is the formula from Marcus Majarra's site: SE = 64(50 x SP ÷ Level)2  16(50 x SP ÷ Level) + 2 It's supposed to calculate how many Stat Exp points (SE) I need to gain in order to grow a specific number of stat points (SP). When I enter L100 and stat points 63.99999... (which is the maximum number of stat points one can gain at L100, or so I've read), I get a SE value of 3530. That's strange, since according to the same guide, the maximum amount of Stat Exp is somewhere around 65000. So, what am I doing wrong? I get an answer only about 1/20 of what it's supposed to be.

Did you multiply by 2 instead of squaring the first term? I got roughly 65,026 from that formula (roughly, because I used 64 instead of 63.99999).

it would be interesting to see what formula the game actually uses to determine the points to add for stat exp. it couldn't use (200*sp^2)(sp*level)=level^2*(se2)/800, which is about as simple as it can be worked out without converting any of the variables to a real number. it would have to work two separate formulae and use the difference. well, i think it would be interesting.

Is there any chance it's something stupid like a bit rotation or somethin like that? Maybe we should look at the numbers and try squaring them, dividing them by each other, etc... and see if we find a number that stands out that might indicate what the formula is based on.
