I had to create an account just to say "thanks" for this.

Earlier today I was looking to play FFVI again and trying to decide which version I wanted to play. After reading a lot about the version differences and translation differences, I decided that the best version for me would be the SNES version for the performance and English translation but with some of the text corrections from FFVIa brought in (where they didn't mess up the text I knew and loved so much from the original) but without the censoring. Many hours later I found this, which appears to be exactly what I wanted. I had to create an account to share my enthusiasm and say thanks for working on this these past few years and continuing to work on it, in the hopes that it would invigorate you and give you some measure of payoff. FFVI has always been my favorite RPG and this version, thanks to its minor changes (enhancements) seems like the perfect (base) version for me.

Also thanks to the others that have posted some confirmations on which patches work with this version. I'm thinking I might try some of them this time around (I've always played the original cartridges or CDs before, so I haven't tried a version with bug fixes; but then again, I can't recall taking advantage of or encountering these bugs either).

Thanks for the feedback Dex.  I'm glad to hear you and many other enjoy the work done.

I'd honestly play it if I hadn't recently played 2 other versions of the game (SNES and PC). I just beat the SNES version and I'm almost done with PC.

I'd honestly play it if I hadn't already made my own touched up version  :thumbsup:
But this is great for those who don't want to do all that work themselves. Your Namingway Edition of IV is the one that's nestled snugly within my hard drive and that one's top notch.

I wanted to thank you. I was trying to decide which versions to use and I decided on running through your versions of FF4 and FF6.

Thanks for the hard work!

There's still a small issue in the Ultima Weapon monologue at the floating continent where it automatically quickly skips one or two lines.
I don't know if there's more issues like that after that plot point, though.

Should be quick & simple to fix.

By the way, I'll seize this opportunity to say that this is the best FF6 english version for the Super Famicom.
Whenever I want to play old FF6 in english, this is what delivers the best experience. :thumbsup:

Apologies if this has been asked already, but would it be feasible to fix the opera scene with the Slattery translation since it actually matches up with the song, unlike Woolsey's? Maybe this has been fixed already and I just have an old version of the patch.

One way or another I recommend that you always use the current version. I think that was fixed but it's been a while since I looked at the Opera scene.

Patched 1.8 (with bugfixes) and checked, opera scene is still Woolsey's translation. I can drop my save file here if you want to check for yourself.

That's right I remember now. I kept it the same for the Opera for nostalgia's sake, but I'm going to need to look at both versions before making any further changes to it. If you have a save file at that point, PM it to me and I'll look into changing it.

If you want to, you can copy my homework. This is from Stand Guard, the Slattery Lyrics to the Aria.

I did delete a pixel's worth of space from every character in the font to make this work; I didn't alter the font, just narrowed the space between letters, as it were. For this reason, my text may not fit in your version of FF6...but I thought it'd be helpful to you to have a template to work from. The Opera Scene is a bitch.

As you probably know, the ampersands are the music notes.

Mmm.. good to know. I already changed the font to not have the extra space in between as well so that there was more room for the script changes. The Opera scene is a pain and the lines for the note that Celes reads in the dressing room have to be changed as well .

Looking at the lines it looks like Slattery made a compromise in places while keeping closer to the Japanese for the Aria. I'm still a little torn and I'd like some feedback.

Personally I much prefer Slattery's translation since, as I mentioned, it actually matches up with the song. That probably goes without saying though, since I brought it up in the first place.

I'm leaning more in that direction, but I know the Opera scene is very touchy to a LOT of fans...

I'm also thinking of making the change an add-on, or an option. Keep the lyrics the same for what's already there, but add a version with the new lyrics in the package. It would keep the consistency...

What's the point of calling it the Woolsey Uncensored Edition if you're not doing it as a "Woolsey", though?

That's the main reason I am reluctant to change it. If I do and there's enough people who want the new lyrics I'll release it as an extra but not the main version.

The way I see it, if people are THAT touchy, they can always move their save over and play through that part of the game on the original. Not trying to be mean or anything, just my two cents.

Another patch does solve the problem in the best way, but that's another patch you'll have to deal with.

The only other thing I can think of is to do something of a compromise, like keep Woolsey's but tweak the lyrics slightly so they match the song. I'd personally be okay with that, though I don't know about anyone else.

I think if Ted Woolsey weighed in on this, he'd be all for making the exception of the Slattery lyrics to the opera.

I'm not sure but I'd wager a guess that he'd be mortified to have such terrible lyrics out there.

But the mans a translator, not a lyricist. Being a lyricist, I know this to be true.
