Final Fantasy VI - Sound Restoration hack and few framerate drop

Hack of Final Fantasy VI Advance

Description:

This hack, that could also be called “FF6 advance as it should have been”, basically replace the music with the original music from the SNES version (gone the aggressive fuzzy instruments).

The framerate drops, although not entirely suppressed, are greatly reduced, so this version plays almost as smoothly as the SNES original.

All 3 releases of the game (Japan, America, Europe) are supported.

The opera songs can optionally be patched to have true opera soloists, and the major part of the opera tunes are played by Tokio’s orchestra (European version of the ROM only).

Thank you!

Reviewed By: safaribans on 31 Aug 2012

Thank you for making this patch. Without it, the game would be completely unplayable.

I honestly tried the original gba version, when I heard the sound and music, I simply couldn’t bring myself to play it. Genuinely sounds bad, and almost painful.

Thank you for making this game playable, and in some ways surpassing the original snes release:

I greatly enjoyed the opera scene!

For those wanting a great experience, I also recommend the font enhancement and palette hack (respectively) here at RHDN to make FF6 feel genuinely like FF6.
