ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Final Fantasy III Maeson Mix (Famicom)

Hey, just wanted to point out that I like these changes you made, but I wanted to throw in a suggestion. In the untranslated version, the job selection screen shows the skill level of every job at once on it. When the game was originally translated, the translators decided to remove that in favor of more character space available for each job name, so you now have to change jobs and then look individually at your stats page just to see what skill level that job is. There should be an optional patch that adds back the job level listing on the job selection screen from the original Japanese version. I know that character space is an issue, but I'd gladly sacrifice a few extra letters at the end of some job names to be able to see my skill level progress on all of my jobs at once in the English translated version of the game. I feel this becomes more important in a mod like this, as many more jobs become useful and you're not just focusing on the same exact ones for each character anymore. Also considering the fact that formulas have been changed to make skill level more effective.

I think the one time I beat the game, I might've had like 3000 HP at the end. 9999, let alone 64k sounds just insane.

In the remakes, I've hit the max cap (9999/999) even before Minwu leaves the party numerous times, and usually in less than 15 hours of grinding (which is very normal for me). I don't even bother to grind like that in the NES version because I know about the rollover glitch, and it ruins the experience for me. Everyone plays games for different reasons - most people play to experience the story or overcome some sort of gameplay challenge. I play to mindlessly raise characters' stats.

There are a few bus in this game that have "bugged" me over the years. (I apologize for that pun.  :P ) Mostly based on the lack of overflow check for certain stats. Namely:

HP and MP aren't capped at 9999/999, or at 65535, for that matter. If your HP/MP goes above 65535, it rolls over to 0.

Inn costs roll over to 0 once they top 65535. This bug would be inherently nullified by limiting HP/MP to 9999/999, respectively.

Gil rolls over to 0 once it hits 16777215. This would be fixed by capping it at 9999999.

The Ultima spell doesn't get stronger, ever.

I have never done a full-scale hack of my own, but I've made miniscule improvement patches and assisted with others' hacks. These are games/hacks that I felt would play better with slight modifications, and usually, I was right. I can imagine making a full-scale original hack would leave one feeling overdone though.

I've been a lurker here for years. Previously, I used the forums at Blitzkrieg Innovations (forums defunct), Dragonsbrethren Industries (forums also defunct), and Slick Productions for all my ROM hacking needs. Since I started using the romhacking.net IRC channel, figured I might as well post here too.

I'm Leviathan Mist. Many of you know me already. I like to play retro games (NES and SNES RPGs being my favorites) and have been into ROM hacking since the late '90's. I can do just about anything besides ASM hacking, but I'm starting to learn that as well. I also tend to not complete the projects I start, but I hope to change that.
