    fixed the URL that someone else added to my previous submission. not sure why the NINJA disclaimer is needed at all? it's not like the online ROM patcher doesn't support it
  • Games
    This game was released in the US in 2019 as Trials of Mana. Because that is the earliest official English title I changed it to Primary Title.
  • Translations
    this should be an Addendum, since it's based off the work of a different translation project

    removed Whirlpool-era subjective opinions (plus the ridiculous and unnecessary "NINJA is superior to IPS" paragraph)

Mini-Maps Upgrade

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

This modification showing mountain ranges on both mini-maps was originally applied in the now obsolete FF3Edit editor when you save the ROM. Since those new mini-maps take more space, WOR mini-map was stored at F0/0000 when saving. With the patch, all subsequent compressed graphics after WOB mini-map are shifted and some of the EF/FBC8 free space is used instead.

This patch is a good way to have this FF3Edit feature without taking the chance of corrupting your ROM. The changes are done in a more logical way, freeing the beginning of the $F0 bank.

Since the original FF3Edit code did not take into account the Sealed Gate Continent rising, an app has been coded to fix the bug and work with custom maps.
