I searched the word "black" in a hex editor, since it's not affected by DTE, and nothing showed. I must not've searched it thoroughly. Thank you, The_Atomik_Punk!. I'll get on a v2.05...

Edit - Here is a quick v2.05 fix for that. Please let me know of any more inconsistencies. :)

Thank you for the confirmation, Reiska. It's nice to have peace of mind. :)

v2.1 is live with the Shinb fix and the Green Sleeves' new function! :)

Thank you SO MUCH. I've been panicking all day, worrying I accidentally screwed the entirety of RHDN over due to my stupid oversight.

I've since submitted a new version that is ROM-free. Thank you so so so so so so much, snarfblam. And I now know what to do in the future. :)

Oh, OK, I get it now; my apologies. :)

Edit - Well, I was just about to tell you that v2.04 is now offline, but it appears that the gracious and kind snarfblam has just approved the ROM-free package. Thanks so much to them!

New in this version: incorporates the latest of chillyfeez's FFIV User Options and changes the Black Belts of Fabul to be Monks.

Let's hope I don't screw up again, eh?

Please do not download v2.04; the Namingway Edition ZIP file contained within has an actual ROM file in it!!!

I am currently attempting to contact a moderator to get the current Project II's ZIP file status changed into either a temporary takedown until the new package, which I have uploaded, is processed, or to get the ROM-free package uploaded immediately.

Thank you for your understanding, cooperation, and time. Have a lovely day.

Edit - I wouldn't be comfortable with people selling my work, The_Atomik_Punk!. For one thing, that's illegal; for another, I put a lot of work into this for no money, and I wouldn't see it as fair. I might advertise it as copier compatible, but I worry for the fact that people will by selling copies of Project II illegally.

Hello, everyone, I'm not sure where to put this as I need to contact a moderator ASAP!

Nonetheless, it needs to be dealt with: I accidentally left a ROM in a project I uploaded to RHDN and it got accepted! I, of course, intended NOT to do this at all whatsoever, but I do feel I need to let people know before there's any legal trouble.

I have since submitted a new version that I made sure, several times, was ROM-free.

This hack is Project II: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1659/

I used the Scratchpad to upload it, and the link to that particular entry is http://www.romhacking.net/scratchpad/489

If it is at all possible, and I apologize for being overly-forward, I would like to request that my Scratchpad entry with the number 489 be taken down immediately, and either
A. Project II v2.04's current link being taken down until the next version is ready to be uploaded, or
B. That the new Project II upload is uploaded immediately. (As this would imply favoritism within the queue, I understand Option A to be more site-friendly and neutral?)

Thank you so much for your time, and I am gravely sorry for my mistake. I assure that it won't happen again.

You made it into the credits, too, since I consider this such a significant change!

Namingway Edition actually got an update to put in Yang's name variable in a line where it wasn't before. And the new version is v2.04. It's up!

There's no reason why it shouldn't be compatible, The_Atomik_Punk!. I'll start working on this, then.

Edit - Just submitted it! It'll be up sooner or later.

That's pretty clear-cut to me; I'm all for Yang being a High Monk as opposed to a Black Belt- what are your thoughts vivify93?
He wouldn't be a High Monk, but a Hi-Monk if I went the route of adding his honorific--not enough room for the full word! Regardless, I'm tentatively saying "yes" to making him a Monk of some sort, and I'd like to give my reasoning.

1. Official release chronology of the main series (FFI, FFIV, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, FFV in Anthology, etc.) had the Monk job as Black Belt, Karate Man, and then the term didn't show up again until FFV saw release. It was called Monk.

2. Release chronology including fan work (FFI, FFIV, FFVI, FFVII, FFII, FFV, FFIII, FFVIII, etc.) calls the job a Monk in all fan translations.

I'd like a few more thoughts about this, though. Anyone have any objections or ideas or general thoughts about changing the Black Belts of Fabul to Monks in the vanilla Project II patch?

Yang was definitely intended to be a monk. I was trying to make it consistent with FFI changing the "Karate Man" (That's what they were called. ACHOOO!!!) to a Black Belt, but if it's enough of a problem, I could change the Kingdom of Fabul to be monks. And yeah, Namingway Edition changed the black belts to monks. Anyone have thoughts on this?

According to the Big Book of FFIV Lies by Ian Kelley, Yang was a High-Monk originally.

Edit - Chrysologus, Karateka were changed to Black Belts in FFIII Remake! Beyond that, there's not enough room for Karateka, unless you want to abbreviate it as Karteka or Karatka.

v2.1 has been submitted! Thanks again, lory1990. :)

You'd have to ask Lory about that. I'm not sure about the coding stuff, I just do what people tell me. >.> I've really only gotten this far with a hex editor thanks to you, Lory, and Fedorajoe...

We will soon see an update for Phantasy Star II that fixes Shinb!

Shinb will now correctly make your team have a 100% chance of escaping a regular battle! I think this may make Hugh an MVP of sorts. In the interest of balance, the Green Sleeves now cast Shift when used as an item. These changes are all thanks to lory1990. :)

Also, here's a small suggestion: until you guys figure out how to fix Ultima proper, the way I did it was I made it a normal white magic attack spell like Holy. I removed its accuracy, since none of the other attack spells have accuracy, and I reduced its power down to 40. Ultima 16 with 99 Soul does about 3,100 damage on average, compared to Flare 16 with 99 Intellect doing 2,100. I tested this on the enemies outside Altea in the beginning of the game.

I have one suggestion that would help with naming problems: add the armlet/bracelet icon (from FF) to go with the Copper, Silver, Ruby, Gold, and Diamond armlets/bracelets (in the Demiforce translation either the gold or ruby one is rendered as "quartz"). As it stands, the Diamond armlet and Diamond armor display identically! I don't know why these items have the regular armor icons; it seems like a mistake of some kind. They should be distinguishable (especially since the armlets are way better!) since in in the Japanese version they have the Japanese words for bracelet/armlet and armor in the names, which is impossible in English due to space constraints.
Applying Lenophis' DTE Fixer-upper Deux would help too, I bet. I also think the Copper, Silver, Ruby, Gold, and Diamond light armor are actually Breastplates or something. I know they're Cuirasses in the GBA port. I did a small graphical and textual cleanup in which I renamed the light Diamond Armor as the Opal Bracelet, personally...

Hey man, thanks for the pointers, that completely fixed my ROM! Thanks again vivify93, If you'll excuse me now, I'm off to experience Final Fantasy II for the first time, with your patch all fired up!
Did you need to add a header or remove one? I'm curious, since Project II requires a header...

For the record vivify93, I tested this patch on the SD2SNES flashcart on a real SNES (RGB modded SNES Mini), and it works great. You might want to advertise this hack as copier compatible, that's certainly an awesome feature.
Awesome! I think that I might add that in. :)

We cannot tell you where to find a ROM, The_Atomik_Punk!. I apologize for the inconvenience. However, I must ask: are you using a headered ROM? If not, that might be the root of your problems. Also, are you hard-patching or soft-patching?

I don't know if Project II is compatible with copiers, either. I want to say it is, but it might end up being more trouble than it's worth to test. I have no means of testing this, either.

Thank you for your interest in the Project. :)

That's why I try to meet halfway and just pick and choose names from older FF games, while looking for short alternatives. There's "proper" and then there's "aesthetically-pleasing."
