How are ya handling?

Jenova DEATH was pretty difficult, i mean it made me return to the Glacier to search the Safety Bit! xD.
And I killed her Barely.
Carry Armor, which IMO was the hardest boss before. Here it was a hard and a Trolling battle as well. xD
But I managed myself to get through it.
I farmed Tetra Elemental Rings too and Collected many Enemy Skills after Jenova DEATH. Because I'm pretty sure that I will need Death Force more often.
What is the Term "Vanilla"?
How are you doing so far on this amazing mod? Did anyone tried to battle the Weapons?

But I'll conceed that things on CD2 get a lot more Easier after Jenova DEATH.
From that Point until CD3, the regular battles get easy and you have a lot more of resources at your disposal. The only boss that's really hard in between is Carry Armor and Prod Clod maybe...
So far I haven't beated Sephiroth. Mainly because I don't have the patience to go through the Super Nova Animation over and over and over because I deal little damage to him.
In Fact I was making so Little Damage to Sephi that I Found myself attacking him with Pandora's Box because it's the only skill that ignores defenses. My party was at lvl 68-74.
KOTR is so nerfed that it's Useless and not worth it's cost.
W-Magic+Ultima deals more damage and it doesn't cost a bit of MP if you combine it with MP Absorb. But 2 Ultimas deal the Same Damage as 1 Pandora's Box. Surely KOTR deals a bit more of Damage to Sephi, but you can only cast it once or twice, from 50000 to 150000 of AP to lvl up I really don't think it's worth the time to lvl KOTR considering how little damage does now.
Considering that Sephi throwed Super Nova for every 8000 of Damage that i could do to him. The battle was Eternal and I always reached a point that I screw myself by choosing the wrong action and I kill my party because the character with Mega All got confused after Supr Nova and wiped the entire party by such a stupid mistake like that, and I could fix that by equipping him with a Ribbon o combining Added Effect with Mystify. But really, I didn't even bothered to try again. Because the battle was boring, not epic or hard, just looooooong.
So now I was grinding a little to get a few stuff, level some Materias.
And I'm trying to get Cloud to learn Finishing Touch so that I can feed him with the Omnislash already! xD
Didn't try to go against the Weapons Yet, I'm currently more Frightned by Ruby's CounterAttack with Ultima, rather than anything that Emerald could do.
EDIT: Just Killed Sephiroth, It felt good, because it was a boring battle as I Stated. Now I will prepare the party and check our guests of Honor, the Weapons.

No, I've beated him with Cloud's Ultimate Weapon Attacking with 4xCut and the Rest Casting Pandora's Box and Supporting as Needed.
Neat Strategy you used with Tifa, I hate her Character and her Stats so I've never really used her, not even in Vanilla. Turns out that for this battle she was useful apparently.
I must say, God Bless Frame Skipping, every game should have this function and a skip FMV's and Sequences. Because seriously, in my memory Supr Nova wasn't THAT LONG!. Seriously...

I really don't know how much HP reduced would be good for this battle.
The rest, his attacks are actually really good IMO. No change needed in that regard. Supr Nova with Piercing Damage would be very Punishing and interesting to see. But I don't really know if it would work properly.

Maybe nerf angel whisper? Either get rid of it completely, as it's the best restorative spell and costs a negligible amount for what it does, or make it not do quite as many things. The only downside of the spell is that it's single target, but again, Safer can't kill more than one person at a time.

Maybe change the way the spell works so that it can actually deal damage (and not just 15/16) and presents a danger of wiping the entire party if you don't have defenses up, but make him cast it much less often.

Address 0x12B Opcode 61 Argument 03BE
change Argument 03BE to 03AE
Address 0x169 Opcode 61 Argument 03AE
change Argument 03AE to 03BE
This will make him use Heartless Angel throughout the fight, but he'll only use Super Nova if his HP is less than 25%.
For Super Nova, I'd suggest the X2 damage formula and at least 100 attack power.

Be sure to put all your characters backrow. Magic Barrier is a Must for this battle. Be sure to prepare some tank with on the Party, you know the drill HP Plus.
And IF possible, have Vincent with the 2nd Limit Break.
The big issue with this battle is the Arms more than anything, so be careful about that and try to finish them off first, Nuke with AoE.
