Thank you so much for your kind words. To be honest, I would love to port the script of Namingway Edition to a Japanese ROM with all of the original features and perhaps have some great additions to it like User Options and an optional B-Button Dash. It would need some work to make it right.

It would be nice to port the script to the original japanese rom so some of us could experience the game at its most accurate. But I would love to say good work on this script and I appreciate u considering a lot of input and feedback from followers of ur work!

I hope that the GBA graphics assets can be ported to this version.
They just look better and Final Fantasy IV always looked like an NES game that was ported to the SNES at the last minute judging from the visuals when compared to V and especially VI.

I also hope that Final Fantasy V gets a similar treatment.
The GBA Script Port is good and all but it doesn't have any of the bugfixes and QoL enhancementss that Namingway Edition and TWUE have.

I have an adamant armor and a cursed ring equipped, which should cause elemental damage to be absorbed, according to various sources.

This doesn't work however (I take regular damage with a fire spell for example).

Is this a bug in this edition?

I want to thank the author for this hack, it is a great edition. Only gripe I might have stems from the missing option to use multiple controllers, the japanese version had it, I like playing old RPGs with a buddy and the missing option prevents it. Is there any way to bring it back or apply any sort of path or hex edit that can enable said option again?

Thanks for the compliments. As for the Multi-controller function, there's two ways to go about it from what I understand. Figuring out how to restore the original Config menu, or port my whole game to the Japanese ROM. However, the game will allow a second player to input ANY commands as if they are player 1.

My goodness, it's so hard to find the right ROM for this hack, every single time. Just FFII US 1.1 Unheadered doesn't suffice.

It's not hard at all... every single time. Maybe try not using "madeup" naming conventions like "FFII US 1.1"

You know exactly what I mean when I say "FFII US 1.1." Don't play dumb please.

To ease your mind:
"Final Fantasy II (U) [!] (v1.1).smc"
No header

Why it's so hard? And why every single time?
Perhaps instead of "1.1", you could look for "Rev1"
And if it turns out to be headered, just remove it with TUSH or StripSNES

I could reset the patches to work better with the modern "Good" set of ROMs out there if you're still having trouble finding the right one to patch.

You don't have to do anything, the problem is not with your patches, and "this" problem would still happen because the problem is "I can't find the right version of a ROM dump with my Google-fu skills.

Except I always manage to find it. Just never the right one the first time, despite the first ROM I get is advertised as being 1.1 and unheadered. Nothing wrong with making it easier for anyone to get their hands on the right one. Shouldn't upset anyone.
