No, it actually was misspelled; it was just corrected by the time you had a look. ;)
lol, guess I was late to the party...   :-X

(Also, I noticed 'fiery' was misspelled in 'Fiery Cocktail'.)
I just wanted to point out that "fiery" is actually spelled correctly.  My apologies, Kiyoshi Aman.  Below is a link to an explanation as to why.

In regards to "Yukionna Bit", "yuki" is Japanese for "snow" (this particular 雪 yuki, anyway), and "onna" is Japanese for "woman".  So, Snow Woman... Bit?  Why Bit?  I don't get that part.

What I am about to say could very well be incorrect, as human memory is notoriously unreliable.  However, if I am recalling correctly, there are a few minor differences between an untouched FF2US ROM and one that has been loaded into FF4kster.  The only thing I can recall at the moment, however, is the behavior of the Cockatrice Summon.  In an untouched ROM, it only petrifies.  After being loaded into FF4kster, it causes 1 HP of damage in addition to petrification.  It's been a long time since I've played the untouched ROM, so I could just be misremembering.  My point, though, is that FF4kster may need to be ruled out as the culprit for the Critical Hit Bug.

Bang Ring > Bomb Ring (I don't entirely like it, but it sounds better than "Explosive Ring").

If you are dissatisfied with Bomb Ring, allow me to propose a few alternatives for your consideration:  Lava Ring, Magma Ring, Burst Ring, Flare Ring, Blast Ring, Atomic Ring.

Thank god is only down for a short time...

@SCO - I had actually done as you suggested as well.  Header or no header, on both .ips and .smc/.sfc, the result is the same:  infinite black screen.  Strangely, though, I have an old beta of Frue Lufia v3 from a year or two ago that works just fine.  I remember having a similar issue back then, yet I fail to recall the resolution.  The ol' hippocampus isn't what it used to be, alas.

Hello, vivify93.  Hisashiburi desune.  Something isn't quite right about the entry for Frue Lufia.  I thought you might want to know.  The "ROM / ISO Information" is thus:

    Lufia II - Rise of the Sinistrals (U) [!].smc
    Size: 2.50 MB (2,621,440 bytes)
    SHA1: A89931C1F29B161B8BE717DFAB4A4ADB54B42B84
    MD5: 6EFC477D6203ED2B3B9133C1CD9E9C5D
    CRC32: 20F2AC29
    Apply only to a headered ROM

The SHA1, MD5, and CRC32 match up with "Lufia II - Rise of the Sinistrals (U) [b1].smc" in the ROM collection that I have.  It is possible that my collection is outdated.  However, after checking with TUSH, this ROM is unheadered.  Furthermore, I have had no success patching this file, with or without a header.  Please advise.  ::bows::

Thought you should know that the link to Final Fantasy IV - Free Enterprise is broken.  Remove "www" to restore function.

Edit:  On closer examination, the "www" is not the issue.  Apparently the site is not secure.  Therefore the "s" in "https" has to be removed for the link to work.  Or just use "", which seems to be the new address.

This looks incredible,!  Did you actually add new items to the game, or just alter existing ones?  I would definitely like to check this out when it's finished.

Oh, look at that, went down.  That's never happened before.  ::snicker::

The only thing I'd really like to see added to the SNES Final Fantasy games is a Bestiary. Especially with VI where having it would be an extreme help in hunting for Rages.
That... would be epic.  Every Final Fantasy hack should contain this, if it is at all possible.  Also, I really like what they did with Final Fantasy Origins for Sony Playstation: showing the treasures found for each area, and how many there are remaining (depicted by "????").

Sorry what is this T-edition?
FF4 T-Edition and FF6 T-Edition are extensive mods to their respective games by a Japanese ROM hacker known as tsushiy.  The games' plots are kept mostly (if not all) intact.  But there are many, many additions (side quests, extra equipment, extra music, etc.) along with bug fixes and rebalancing.  In the case of FF4, the monster sprites were updated to the 16-color palette of the GBA version.

 :o  I had no idea there was an FF4 T-Edition.  If it's anything like FF6 T-Edition... I really wish someone could translate these wonderful mods.  ::sigh::

Grimoire LD <--- This man knows the way.

What a brilliant idea, einlanzer-san!  I have long wanted something like this.  FFIV Complete Collection is superior in many ways to all other versions, except for the fact that they destroyed what little challenge the original game offered.  I look forward to seeing what you have accomplished.  Now if only something could be done about making Interlude into something decent, for therein lies a wasted opportunity...
