That's some crazy epic music. Totally different feel from the original, but that's not a bad thing. The original theme was kind of like you were going on a Sunday picnic. This sounds more like bad shit's going down and you're on an important mission.

Glad to see you're still alive!

And, just out of curiosity, how many letters will character names consist of? I've seen some edits expand it to 5 or 6 letters. Call me crazy, but naming my people is always one of my favorite parts of a game.

I'm sorry if this seems harsh, but as a composer, I am particularly sensitive about someone declaring that a piece of music is "an original composition" when it is in fact lifted note for note from another game.

Yep, still alive. I just got busy with work, really frustrated that the ATB patch caused a fatal bug and I'd need to change a LOT, and then decided that I just needed to "step back" from the project for a minute and took a week off. I'm probably going to take this week to do some more work and just relax. Since I'm going to essentially be building the game from Disch's disassembly, I'd ideally like to put in 6 character names. The version of Grond's game that I started with had 5, but I couldn't change it when I tried to apply a different set of patches, which I pretty much understand why now haha. The song that Chpexo came up with is just EPIC IMO. Whenever he sends me a new OST, I will just stop and listen to this song for about 5 minutes on Famitracker, even when nothing has been changed. IIRC, he said this was based upon the Rygar song, and I forgot what game it was, so my mistake. Thank you for pointing that out so I can go and change the YouTube page as well.

Err

I don't think I like the direction this project is going in, as regards its title.

You aren't reconstructing FF here so much as turning it into another game.

I'd come up w a new title yo

Could just be a working title. At any rate, it's a better thread topic than "My Cool Final Fantasy (NES) Hack". :D

I think the title is appropriate.  He is reconstructing the graphics, music, characters, and etc.

Something snappy and attention grabbing. Original. Not like the zillion others already on the site.

Final Fantasy: Lost age of chaos or something.

I still vote for removing "Final Fantasy" from the title entirely and coming up with an original name:

Pretty good.  Maybe Legend of the Crystal Orbs?  Or Mystic Orb Legend...no I'm joking on that one. 

Though I still like the current title a new name completely removing the Final Fantasy name could work.  On the end it's his project.  :D

Wow. I go to NYC for a few days and my thread goes crazy. I thought that "Reconstructed" pretty much described what I was doing with the game, reconstructing the graphics, music, etc., as JCE3000GT mentioned earlier in the thread. I haven't really had a lot of motivation recently, although I've been able to plan out the game essentially. I thought that Spoon's earlier comment was about the use of the musical tune that we were kicking around for the Overworld. Chpexo has been AMAZING through this process, and we've both decided to try to incorporate some music outside of the traditional Final Fantasy games, like the Rygar tune, that many people might not have heard before. I personally tried playing Rygar the other night, and never beat level 1. So his suggestions of tunes that people might not have heard seemed valid to me. The game remains at its core the original Final Fantasy, and I like the working title. I'm certainly open to input though, and Disch has said a number of times that an original title might be better. When I really get down to being closer to releasing a beta, I might change the title, but its just easier to leave it right now. Interested to hear what people thought of the tune though, since that kind of seems to have gotten lost in the commotion. God bless everyone and I hope you all have a great week!!

Hey, this is almost done right? Or is it still in beta testing? That Facebook page said betas are going out . .

That overworld music sounds good but seems like it's a copy of Rygar. I don't have a problem with that, I guess. Since we're copying music why don't I send you my copy of 8-bit version of The Wrist by Mushroomhead so you can use it in the dungeons  >:D

"The Wrist" - Mushroomhead (8-Bit) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-uIovk3KI4

or how about Solitaire/Unraveling by Mushroomhead instead?

Oh and people were talking about changing the name. I would like to second that motion. I think this hack looks too good to call it "Reconstructed" - the final version should have a proper name - something that sounds better than Reconstructed.

Just my opinion.

How about instead of calling it Reconstructed, call it Final Fantasy: Temporia or something like that?

Why didn't I know about this before? Seems to be an epic undertaking going on here. I haven't read all the comments, but I see you're already making your own musical tracks. Let me know if you need any help with that.

In fairness to the op and his collaborators, it's kind of hard at this point to create a (good) tune for the NES that hasn't already been heard before.

Guys this thread was necrobumped.  Last update was about a year ago.  It's probably a safe bet this fizzled out.

Have you heard the mysterious 412.nsf?

I don't remember where I got it from or what the name of it is.  Probably from one of the famicompos.
