So I'd like to take another foray into the wonderful world of hacking. I dabbled in Final Fantasy Tactics a while back, and actually had some fair success with it. Built my own cutscenes, classes, even imported art for a custom Red Mage class which was an absolute nightmare to make work, make no mistake.
But I'd like to make Final Fantasy Legend 3 as my first REAL start to finish project, but I'm unsure how difficult that would be. It doesn't look like there are any tools listed for it on the site, and trying to do this from scratch seems...daunting. I guess I'm not sure how deep I'm diving in, and was hoping for a guestimate on the difficulty level of this project.
Specifically I want to make the following changes:
-Improve on the end game. The last special classes (Monster, Beast, Cyborg, Robot) are obtained at level 30, and they stop improving from there. I'd like to add more to keep the end game from being as stagnant as it is. I'd also like to balance it a bit more if possible.
-Improve upon the script. If possible I'd like to increase the memory I can work with to expand on the script. The plot of the game is surprisingly good, but it's absolutely *butchered* by space limitations and truncated speech. I'd like to give it a little more depth from beginning to end, and fix more or less all of the awkward dialogue. I'd also like to give the two mutants in the party literally any dialogue at all. Two of your main party members are freakin' mute!
So anyway, that's my goal for this project. I don't THINK it's too terribly hard, but being as this is my first step into a world without easy to use tools, I'm not sure what I might be signing up for. Some assistance in understanding that, and possibly with the project itself would be wonderful!
