Sorry for the late reply as we've been busy with all the updates for the hack. Now that that's all done with, let me try my best to answer some of your questions...
I just finished 100%ing this newest version, and I gotta say...
No spoilers but I dislike the reward for beating a certain octet of magical animals. =P
All hail Edward, godking of Globe199 (only way I've found to legit beat it)
Yeah, sorry about that! In that version, it's as chillfeez has said and the reward was rushed as we didn't take into account for the possibility of it actually being beatable! In v11.5, this has been rectified and we have created a VERY special reward for those that are actually able to beat that fight. Hope you'll get to check it out!
Howdy - was there any solution to this? I am having same problem. The Title screen comes up, I click B button, and then the sound continues but screen fades to black and nothing happens. Thanks!
This sounds like an issue with the patching. Make sure you apply the patch to a clean v1.1 of an FF2US rom. Hope this helps!
Any idea what Bane does for Dark Knight Cecil? I read through the notes and spell notes etc., and couldn't figure out what it does. It seems to be a basic attack. Does it do more damage, if so, what's the drawback?
Bane is a guaranteed Critial Hit attack for DKC, at the cost of some of his HP. This might seem superfluous at first but will come in very handy at endgame.
Still one the best hacks ive played in its many versions, and glad i was able to do a review of this on my blog.
Thanks so much again for the kind words!! Love the review you have put up on your blog!
I've been keeping up with this hack and it's super fun! Was wondering, though, if you or someone else could figure out if it's possible to modify overworld sprites to be 16x24 instead of the regular smaller 16x16. Final Fantasy Record Keeper features almost all of the overworld sprites for all characters as well as the NPCs. Could make for a much more modern hack.
Thanks so much for the kind words and we are very glad that you are having a good time with the hack!
Regarding modifying overworld sprites - it's a great idea! It'll definitely be something that would require quite a bit of work as the tiles in FF4 are 16x16. But I'll jot this down and see if it's a possibility for later. Thanks for the suggestion!
Thanks everyone and I apologize again for the delayed response!
Hope you'll all continue to enjoy the hack!
