That program solution is how the FF12 International fan translation works.

16-color enemy sprites in SNES Final Fantasy IV
You couldn't port over anything. You'd have to remake the game from the ground up.
If it were easy to port GameBoy or GameBoy Color games to the NES, don't you think that loads of people would have already done this over the last two decades?
Even GameGear games are extremely difficult to port over to the Master System and only the genius Chris Covell has done so. and that's essentially the same hardware.
As one hacker to another let me just say, that you should have known, that the game of this scale is going to get carted and soled behind yours and Infidelity's back in a record time.
Back-stabbing abuse of this otherwise brilliant new complete hack
It is because of such back-stabbing cart makers, that this world becomes bad, instead of remaining good. And thus make a whole romhacking thing look illegal, despite the fact that we do this for free, simply because we love the game and the work.
I really don't understand, why Nintendo doesn't send their samurais to do their thing on each and every repro store.
Let me ask everyone, who hate emulation, why should we, the romhackers, make a mod which is compatible with real hardware, if someone is then going to make a cart and sell it behind our backs to earn money. Those kind of actions can only result in us building in custom blockades or simply make any game incompatible to cart and stuck it into emulation only. Or not release out work at all.
All future rom hackers, do Not make your work compatible with real hardware.
Is there any way to play this without paying 50+$ ?
Was there an original un-translated rom or something or is this completely new
Those older system came extremely late in the system's life cycle, when it was already phasing out. And the exclusive games for those were irrevelant. This one comes way too early and comes with a Xenoblade port right out of the gate (though even with new hardware, the preview video for that had abysmal framerate).
I prefer this, yes.
When my player is too vocal or too distinct, I feel like I'm watching a movie more than playing a game.
This even includes visuals on my end, I need to feel like I'm controlling an extension of myself, and playing as some effeminate pre-teen with Best Buy hair kills it. That's a big reason I couldn't get into the PS2 Final Fantasies back in the day, and much prefer something like Morrowind, etc.
I like games with heavy create-a-character approaches, hopefully more than 4 races, two genders, etc. I've yet to come across one that gives a solid story on top of that, but I'm also 6-7 years out of modern gaming.
