Hi, I'm that MUGEN guy who is always chased by a hacker who loves posting spam, Pingurules. Don't worry about the spam part though.
(Because he hacked my account so that I can't log in for some time, I couldn't log in for some time. But now, I'm free
I'm making a Final Fantasy hack based on the game FFIV. It's going along pretty fine, and I've brought a few screenshots with me.
A few spoilers here!
(Due to SNES limitations the story may seem like the original FFIV one, but I'll try to make it as different as possible.
The characters are:
Quentin(Quentn) the Scholar, Shy/Depressed/Kind personality
Xuan the Geomancer, Confident/Shy/Helpful personality
??? the (legendary) Gladiator, Humble/Careless personality
Sarah the White Fighter, Concerned/Touchy personality
Zachary(Zachry) the Black Fighter, Brave/Rude personality(like Edward Geraldine[ninja from ff4])
????? the Rune Knight, Careful/Weird personality
???? the Devout
????? the Shaman
????? the Pirate
Cid the Dancer(wait, what?)
Cliff the Onion Knight
Grey the Oracle
*might be removed*Robin the Sage (see what FE game I am refrencing?)
In the town of MjOnir, where Scholars take their tests(and those who want and are worthy become a Red Mage), the King, Y, feels something wrong in his castle and sends Quentn and his classmate Scholars to go around the other places in the world to see if there is anything wrong as well. And they asked around. They were shocked to hear that everyone can sense an evil presence, some places stronger than others. They went back to report. Y recounts a legend that Evil itself will attack the universe to destroy it, time and space-only (yeah, generic story right?) the power of five souls- A person experienced in white magic, a person experienced in black magic, a person experienced in Gaia magic, a person experienced in using magic to empower his weapon, and a person that can do all of the above- when merged can slay Evil, and it will go into a slumber once more. Quentin was then tasked with such a heavy mission. He wanted to *removed* as he thinks he is useless and that Y just wants to scare him and rid of him. Sarah then interrupts and tries her hardest to motivate the poor guy. He finally decides not to jump and together with Xuan and Sarah exits MjOnir to search for these five heroes. Although Quentin didn't know it, he just might be one of them...
Most likely to stay the same, but if it is modifies please don't expect masterpieces
It's real hard to hex.
Ok, here's how I need your help! I don't want to make the game easy, so here it is. I have Raise and Arise, so should I add "Rvive" (revive everyone with low HP), or would that be too overpowered? Thanks for your opinion!
Secrets of the Game:
Easter Egg! I used my personality for Quentin's. Yeah, I'm a always depressed and sometimes emo guy who got bullied and practically tortured his entire lifetime. And of course I'm battling the urge to jump all the time.
Okay, that was depressing, how about something more light-hearted? You gain levels pretty quick and end up at estimated level 85 by the endgame (you need to be level 99 for all 5 to beat the game if you're not good at ATP and maybe 90-95 for those more experienced). Oh, and my favourite White magic spell "Ultima" debuts in this game too. It has a small backstory like in Final Fantasy II.
Why did I use this instead of Final Fantasy X?
FFI- You can choose party members, not what I wanted. And charge system is really bad(I mean, 9 only?).
FFII- This was what I wanted to do, but there were no finished/good hacking tools.
FFIII- Plan B, but no hacking tools either. This time, not at all.
FFV- No hacking tools that my computer can use.
FFVII- 3D issues. I could do it, but events hacking is really hard, let alone music and spriting.
FFIX- ^, but it would do if it has to be 3D.
FFX onwards- I can't do complex polygoning
