Thank you so much for these updates!!
I'm not lying when I say that I created an account on this site just to say "thank you" for your work, Chaos Rush. Final Fantasy II is, in my opinion, a very underrated game, and your new translation has made it easier to play than ever. I'm also a big fan of the B-button dash - it makes the game more in line with the GBA / PSP versions, which pairs up nicely with the translation. I understand your not wanting to create a true hack of FF II, and I'm absolutely in agreement with that. I mean, these updates are meant for the original NES version of the game, and if someone wants gameplay or balance tweaks, there are already newer, remade versions of the game with those fixes.
Good luck with your Final Fantasy III project! I hope that, someday, your FF II translation can make its way into the Final Fantasy I + II compilation on the NES. The version available on this site is great, especially with the fixed save states and B-button dash, but I definitely prefer your newer translation to the older Demiforce version. I'll keep my fingers crossed ^_^
