Final Fantasy V - GBA Script Port

Hack of Final Fantasy V

Description:

As the name implies, this hack is a complete port of the English GBA game’s script over the original RPGe fan translation, using Noisecross’ FFe Text Editor v1.6. This hack replaces all in-game field text, battle text, spell names, item names, monster names etc. with their relevant GBA equivalents, except where compromises had to be made to accommodate the stricter space limitations of the SNES game. An attempt was made to prefer new creative names over jarring abbreviations where necessary to fit space limitations. Graphics for the fonts were also edited, with the main variable-width font replaced with the thin font from Earthbound, purely because it allowed more space for text, especially in battle. NOTE: As of v1.04, this font has been replaced with a thin font that resembles the font from FF4, for greater consistency.

The project thread is here.

The patch should be applied to an unheadered, Japanese Final Fantasy V ROM.

As of v1.1, the new spell system (-aga, -ara) is used rather than the old numbered system.

As of v1.07, the .zip file now contains two extra patched to be applies OVER the initial patch. One contains various bugfixes from slickproductions.org, the other is an optional patch to make Galuf’s hair consistently ginger. Further details are in the readme.

Changelog is now in the readme.

Amazing - just noticed one little error

Reviewed By: jmoral14 on 30 Jul 2020

Thanks for porting the GBA script - this easily the best version of FFV over the GBA version. One little error I noticed was right before you fight Magissa, even if Bartz’s name is changed, it still displays as “Bartz” when he says the line “Wait…you’d hunt a wind drake!?” Not sure if this occurs anywhere else. If J121 is still working on this, this would be worth fixing in a future update.
