Hack of Final Fantasy II

Description:

This patch does four things and four things only:

  • While walking in towns, dungeons, etc., the player can now press the Y button to run. In the Field, the player can use Y to toggle running. Y will also toggle slow flying in the airships for accurate landing (helpful when landing at Toroia, specifically)
  • The “Stereo/Mono” option in the Custom menu has been changed to “Mode Active/Wait.” This allows the player to switch from Wait mode (monsters will not attack you while you choose an item or spell) to Active mode (monsters’ turns continue while you make these decisions).
  • During battle, the player can now press X to defer to the next ready character
  • The toggle between viewing Max HP and the ATB percentage is now controlled in battle by pressing Select

The rest of the game has been left entirely untouched, to allow for easy patching into virtually any working hack (barring a large amount of custom code already having been implemented). The idea was to implement some user options into FFIV that were not introduced in the franchise until later games.

This bundle now also contains an extra patch, “Change to Cache.” This allows access to The Big Chocobo’s extra inventory from the menu screen. Please read the Readme for more information.

  • **Version 3.1 corrects a bug from version 3.0 that broke dashing and slow flying functionality on the Moon and Underworld maps**

The hits just keep coming

Reviewed By: Spooniest on 09 Mar 2015

Yes folks, this is awesome.

Chillyfeez has outdone himself and given us a truly unique experience with this hack. Dashing is a little clunky compared to the official versions that have such a function, but it’s still better than plodding through Baron Castle trying to get to Cecil’s bedroom so you can begin the game.

Switching characters during battle adds a tactical element to this hack that you don’t often see in romhacks. It’s such a simple thing but it’s nice to be able to skip to another active member instead, without wasting a turn.

Cheers, mate! This one’s a keeper!
