Project II: Final Fantasy IV

Hack of Final Fantasy II

Description:

Project II: Final Fantasy IV is an extensive script rewrite of Final Fantasy II for Super Nintendo, made largely with Pinkpuff’s FF4kster. When FFII released in 1991, it came with a subpar script. Through the years Final Fantasy IV received many English script revisions, but nearly all ports of the game have long load screens, lag, and sound issues. In addition, a wide swath of enhancements and bug fixes are only available for the English Super NES version.

One may ask, “Why not play J2e’s patch?” Unfortunately, J2e’s translation is rife with messy hacking, memes, and a script that was half made up and half pulled from the English SNES script. Project II’s goal is to stay truer to the real FFIV.

Enter the Crusade for the Crystals once more with Project II!

Features:

  • Entirely rewritten script, taking elements from various localizations of Final Fantasy IV.
  • Restored missing content: use Pray, Salve, and Recall, find SomaDrops and Firebombs in chests, learn Shell, and more.
  • Updated title screen by Paladin.
  • Every spell has an in-battle use, thanks to Dragonsbrethren and Deathlike2.
  • Improved battle commands: Regen heals 160 HP per round, Cry lowers Magic Defense, plus others.
  • Reverted censored map graphics: the Baron dancer strips again.
  • Plethora of bug fixes.
  • Sirens can be bought from an end-game shop.
  • Supplementary lists for understanding equipment properties.
  • …And much more. See the readme for detailed information.

Players looking for a more modern take on in-game terms, as well as the original maps, enemy difficulty, and title screen, check out Final Fantasy IV: Namingway Edition by Rodimus Primal.

One of the most satisfying translations of FF4!

Reviewed By: 8.bit.fan on 07 Mar 2019

This is one of the best and most satisfying retranslations of our beloved Final Fantasy II(US) I have ever played. I found it so entertaining, and because it’s close to the FF2 US original, I had to use this as a base for my FF4 Ultima hack. Of course, there are many other reasons why I chose Project II as a base as well.

On top of the great retranslation work, there are a ton of additions, bug fixes and things that were omitted from the US version added back in that make this my favorite vanilla version of FF4. Also, one of the things I love is how they kept the title screen in the style of FF2US, but changing the II to IV to eliminate the series’ numbers confusion.

If you are looking for a great vanilla FF4 experience that’s authentic and feels like the original FF2US for the SNES, look no further than Project II! For an experience closer to the original Japanese FF4 and modern versions of FF games, try Namingway Edition.

Thank you vivify93 and everyone that’s made this wonderful version! :)
