Final Fantasy VI Once Again

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

FINAL FANTASY III: ONCE AGAIN is a patch I’ve been working on for much of the year. Initially, my intentions for the patch were very humble and private, but the more I learned about the available tools, the broader my approach became, and the final result, I believe, is a more balanced game with an overall heightened challenge factor, and some more changes that fans should enjoy playing. I tried my best throughout the process to keep things close to the classic era Final Fantasy, so even though a lot is different, there’s nothing here that is totally inconceivable or anachronistic to a Final Fantasy game of 1994.

I did not intend to alter the story, and no maps, sprite, or monster graphics were changed, CzarDragon and Colossus do not make an appearance, the eight dragons are not copies of the beefed up dragons from Final Fantasy VI Advance…the title screen even remains Final Fantasy III (something which is easily changeable).

You will need a headered version 1.1 ROM of the US Final Fantasy III, in order to use this patch. It will not work on other versions. I recommend using Lunar IPS to patch the file. Please note that I have only played and tested the game on ZSNES, and am not sure how it will work on other emulators, or on actual hardware, or if my changes would affect it in any way.

List of certain changes available in the readme.

Good, but avoid pre-patched version

Reviewed By: dewey.john on 07 Mar 2013

I enjoyed this hack until I got to the Imperial camp in Sabin’s scenario. None of the Magitek suits could do anything except Healing Force, nor could I run from battle, so it was impossible to proceed any further.

EDIT: this was an issue with the pre-patched version from fantasyanime.com. I have been informed that this problem has been fixed.
