I was just wandering if my version of the game is different or something. I read about what makes her weapon more stronger, yet it seems different on my game. It seems that the weapon gets more powerful every time I connect on a direct standard hit, without using limit break. Is there a typo on the guides I read about it, or was there some alternative way of making it stronger?
If you read that her weapon gets stronger by scoring 'miss' on her limits then it's the guides that are wrong. Her weapon is powered up by the limit gauge multiplied by her current limit level, nothing else.

The strength of the Premium Heart depends on how full your limit gauge is.
If it's full, Tifa will do maximum damage every time, though she's can't use a regular attack. The best way to get around that is the Deathblow-Added Cut combo or have her Mime someone's 2x Cut or Slash-All.
