That's sort of how it is in vanilla ffiv anyway. She's a complete pushover until level 7 at least, but she levels up quickly in the beginning. The difference might be that in the original game, Cecil has leveled up a bit before you get her, so he makes quicker work of the first monsters she sees...

I'm working on rebalancing equipment right now. Cecil should deal much more damage now :) Expect new content to be out by this Friday! Also, I'll be taking requests if anyone has any suggestions on how to improve the hack.

I would really like to have custom sprites, but I don't think I'm skilled enough in pixel art to do it myself haha.
I can help you with that I know someone will make custom sprite for you, unless you have enough money to pay for custom sprite for you.  Here is linky.  I am not sure he might have custom sprite what are you looking for.
Are you huge fan of Megaman Xtreme 2?   Then check this progress of Remastered version!

This week's update is coming out early! The prologue is now finished! (woot!) :) Should take roughly one hour to complete (assuming no game overs). I've started fleshing out the game progression so I have a pretty good idea of how to order of story events will unfold now.
Also, if anyone's noticed I have changed the title of the hack to Final Fantasy IV Heroes of Light & Dark to better fit it. It's likely only going to be a temporary name and so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! As always feedback is more than welcome as it helps to create a better game in the end so don't hesitate to comment!

Spotted an error in your text. The "Will" in the story dialogue shouldn't be capitalized.

Looks pretty good so far, although you should probably redraw or at least palette swap the characters. If you want, I could try my hand at it.

Thank you for catching that :) And yes I'd really like to modify the sprites or at least change colors, and I've attempted but to no avail. Would you be willing to try? I already have an idea for all of the characters designs.

Hello everyone! I'm finally back to working on this project. I'm taking some time away from the story and working on modifying sprites/palettes and the title screen. Here's a preview of what I've done so far:

Finally pushing out another update! God damn this has been so incredibly stressful ;-; (But worth it?) Anyway, here is version 0.3.0 which introduces Chapter 1: The Unforgiven. I would explain all the details, but A) I am already exhausted from this and school work. B) You have to play for yourself to find out what happens :)

IMPORTANT: Please, please, please let me know if you find any glitches/issues with the patch. This is just a prototype of the future release and there are sure to be some bugs in it (which is fine I just want to have most of them fixed by the time the final version is released).

Thanks to everyone who is still interested and following the project!

So far, I patched it into an unheadered FF2us 1.1 rom and it works fine and I started playing it and noticed a few mistakes. First is misspelled as "frst". Much like how "will" shouldn't be capitalized unless it's at the start of the sentence. My only advice is to fix typos and grammar mistakes when you write the story. Also, surrounded is misspelled as "surounded".

Overall, this hack is amazing IMO.
