Good luck. There is no room in bank 2. Like, none.

When some things are renamed, it leaves room for others, believe it or not. So, now what should we call this add on? Project II- Name Update?

Wow, you are working quickly, it sounds like! By the time I'm done playing my FFIII cartridge ;D, the classic and improved FFIV will probably be done! You all are the best. I have such fond memories of this game from when I was a kid, and it's still a blast to play it. (And the DS version!)

FlamePurge

I was thinking Project II: Classic Edition. Namingway's Revenge is kinda cute, though!

To make it a little less gamey-sounding, how about the Namingway Option?

Project II - Namingway Edition!  :woot!:

Namingway Edition is still coming. I'm adjusting the EXP and GP of all enemies. Since I have the "il" digraph in there, maybe I should real quick change the currency to gil too. A few things that can't be done at the moment: 1. Twin Magic's casting time. I don't fully understand how it works, so it will be speedier in Namingway Edition compared to the original Japanese FFIV. 2. The stripping dancer. 3. The original enemy AI, which I think just consists of Asura casting Armor on herself, but I'm not sure.

For a couple of other notices, the original maps and chest graphics will never be put in, including the developer's room. And I'm not going to revert the title screen. Not sure when it'll be out, but eventually it'll come. Hold tight 'til then!

Happy Boxing Day! Looks like I couldn't make this release a Secret Santa Surprise like I wanted. But, here it is:

http://www.bwass.org/bucket/ProjectII_v2-03.zip

- Fixed map bugs.
- Fixed typos. (No more "go to bed rest." :p)
- Project II: Namingway Edition is in, with the original enemy EXP drops, GP drops, HP, Strength, Defense, and Magic Defense. Magic Power still needs to be edited, and I'm not sure that enemy MP was changed, but if it was, it's also outta my hands right now. (Grimoire LD has informed me that enemy MP is equal to 1/8 of their HP, so MP has also been updated as a consequence of updating their HP.)

Enjoy, everyone.

Edit - v2.03 has been accepted to RHDN!

Its still a Christmas gift nonetheless.  :cookie:

I'll have to check it out with your fixes after I get off work.

Grimoire LD

Magic Power is Spell Power, that can easily be edited by going to "Extras" and selecting "Spell Power". MP is also always 1/8 of an enemy's HP so there's no worry about that.

Thank you for the info on MP, Grimoire LD. As for Magic Power / Spell Power, it seemed as though I could only edit whether or not an enemy had it, not the actual stat itself.

Edit - It seems I forgot to mention this anywhere, but Rydia and Rosa do have their original spell acquisition rates in Namingway Edition. That was the first thing I did after reviewing Rodimus Primal's alterations to Project II's nomenclature.

Ah, you need to press Tab to access the Spell Power, same with any of the Extras.

Oh. Well, crap. I guess I need to go through the bestiary again and check to see which enemies have Magic Power. >.> I know a couple of them were changed pretty drastically, too.

Edit 1 - OK, I submitted the new version. For now, here's the updated Namingway Edition with the original Magic Power.

Edit 2- Oh, and Rodimus Primal, I did add you to the credits page, we're just waiting for it to be accepted.

 :thumbsup: I know. I can see it in the que. Patience is a virtue.

Hey, vivify - I see you just submitted a review for User Options. Thanks, by the way. It looks like at almost the same time, though, I was releasing a new version.
It's a pretty functionally significant change - turn deferring with x works much better than it used to. The zip contains a patch to be used specifically with ROMs that, like Project II, have already been patched with the previous version.
I think I'm at a point with it where I'm very satisfied, so this will probably be the last update you need to worry about for quite a while.
Ongoing project: "Final Fantasy IV: A Threat From Within"

Latest Demo

FlamePurge

I saw that. I have v2.04 ready already with the new User Options, but I'm not going to release it for a while. I'll wait and see if anything bigger shows up before a new release.

You're welcome for the review. I thought if I'm using it, I may as well leave a review for it!

Version 2.03 applied with Namingway Edition, I removed the header. Then readded it just to be sure, then used the "UO2_2 for v2_1 Patched ROM" patch and everything works great. I can say this is the most complete SNES version of Final Fantasy IV, IMO. 

FlamePurge

Thanks, Rodimus Primal! :) That's the patch I applied to v2.04. If you all could just remove the header after applying the original patch, (and maybe Namingway Edition if you so desire) then apply User Options for v2.1 Patched ROM, you'd basically get v2.04 as it is now!

Thank you all for supporting me this far. :)
