Phantasy Star IV has long been one of my favorite games of all time, so it's definately good to see people still care enough about it to add more to the gameplay or to improve upon it.The patch program I use is LunarIPS. That's an interesting problem; I haven't heard of it from the play-testing phase. You can get LunarIPS here: http://www.zophar.net/utilities/download/lips100.zip. Let me know if you have any other problems!
I am, however, having a little problem. For some reason, I'm unable to patch the file. I have the rom; that's not a problem. However, when I attempt to apply the patch, I get an error message that says something about the file size being to large. I use znestl12 to patch my files. Is there some other program I should specifically be using in order to patch the file?
Ahndou: Glad you like it! If the PSIV editor becomes a reality, I guarantee more PS series hacks!
Thank you very much. That program worked flawlessly, and I've been playing the newly patched game for hours since. The challenge is very refreshing, as a lot of games have a tendency to be too
easy due to the ability to adjust your level to your enemy's strength, or to just power-level. With this, trying to power-level is a life-or-death gamble.
While I personally don't power-level, the challenge certain got my competitive spirit up. I actually had a character die on the very first battle. It was a pleasant, bitter-sweet moment that only made me want to tackle the dungeon all the more. I can't wait to see what the bosses are like.
Thank you again, both for the program, and for this patch. I appriciate the long, hard work you must have put into it, and am greatful you've decided to share this with everyone.
