I forgot who it was but there was a project a while back that was upgrading the battle sprites and *I think* also the backgrounds to bring them up to par with the GBA rerelease.
Also, that FF2 pseudo-remake Mato translated has upgraded monster sprites.
As long as you're planning on looking into using larger map sprites, how about a look at graphics upgrades in general?
It's low priority, but it would be a hell of a cherry on top at the end.

The 4BPP backport project?

I think maybe yes.

I remember that 8.bit.fan asked Gedankenschild for help in order to apply the expanded palettes of their mod to the Ultimate mod. As far as I remember Gedankenschild has been absent, for quite some time by now.
Hi Vanya MysticLord Thanatos-Zero!
Yeah that was a while back, but it's been put in the back burner since ... now that the project is more or less at its final iteration maybe we can explore this idea again. However, the rom has been expanded for quite a bit and so this might or might not work off the bat .... if not then might require some tinkering to make it compatible with FF4 Ultima.

Any cheats for this that work? Am on Retroarch.

When in combat, go to the item screen and select a blank space, then select it and scroll all the way up to the top, then hit up one more time to select a weapon and/or shield. Select it to unequip it, then run out of combat. Equip whatever you want/can to the slot that got disarmed and boom, duplication. Rinse and repeat as many times as you like. You can do this multiple times per combat. Best of luck!

I have found that most GameGenie codes work, but not all, you'll to test each one you want to use. Same with ProActionReplay codes. Both ZSNES and SNES9X have cheat search functionality built in so finding your own codes is doable.
Hi nanashi89 Dakitty lexluthermiester!
Most beneficial glitches are kept in the game. GG codes and other forms of cheats should also work.

Here are some new screenshots:





Here's a brief list of what's being added:
-4 new bosses
-Upgraded/polished existing bosses
-New areas
-New command upgrades
-General balance

Stay tuned and hope you'll all check it out when it's ready! :thumbsup:

Really excited to try this out, however, I've already noticed that the item screen is a little bugged. It's all black, and some letters are missing from some items.

If that's one of the only problem, then I can live with it of course, cause it looks like an amazing expansion of one of my favorite games growing up. Seriously, I was obsessed with it.

Is this game playable to the end in its current state?

Hi BadManMachismo!

Sorry for the late reply.
The item screen should not be bugged. Perhaps it was an issue with the patching?

Yes, this hack is fully playable all the way to the end and then some. :) However, if you can wait, there should be a new update patch coming out within the week with several bug fixes.

Hope you'll enjoy the hack! Cheers!! :thumbsup: :beer:

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate the response and the work you put in. I'll be waiting for that update. Can't wait.  :thumbsup:

Please put the option for us to choose which song Edward can play and not be random.
And it improves the effects of your music.

I tried patching the rom again, and I ended up with the same problem with the item screen. Instead of the normal screen, it's just a black screen, with the items still able to be selected and everything. However, some of the letters appear missing from the item names. Now, if I throw them away and buy new ones, so far all the letters appear. I'm using Snes9x for the New 3ds by the way.

This might be your problem. Have you tested the rom in question on an emulator for another system, such as SNES9X for Windows?

Hi Everyone! :)

The Dev team and I have been working on a secret project for FF4 Ultima in celebration of the 20,000 downloads milestone here on RHDN!! It's been a much requested feature that's asked about quite a lot in the past, and we're now ready for its reveal - FF4 Ultima v20k will include a New Game+ mode with increased maximum level and stats!! The patch is now up and we hope you'll all enjoy the new additions!





HUGE thanks to Chillyfeez for the amazing ASM work in making this happen!!  :woot!:
As always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions and/or comments. Cheers!!  :thumbsup: :beer: :)

Is this intended to be the final-ish version?

Hi Vanya!
Yup, this is 'intended' to be the final or close to final-ish version. We have put in as much as we could for the time being. :)

Hi Everyone!

Version 21k is now ready for download! https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4134/

New features include 4 new summons for Rydia, a brand new tactical command for Kain, several existing summons have been reworked to make better use of them, and other bug fixes from v20k.

Existing summons update details:
Sylph has been buffed. The power is now doubled.
Leviathan is now Ice elemental.
Odin will randomly be summoned at the beginning of battles to make short work of the enemies.
Asura's 3rd spell is now Shell to party instead of Life.
Chocobo's damage is now based off ATK and makes it a viable summon throughout the game!

Without further ado, here are some new screens:



Hope you'll all check it out and give it a whirl! Enjoy!!  :)

Oh, and since I know some people have asked about this... If you're using the SMC version of the ROM, if you patch the MSU-1 1.5MB patch immediately after the Ultima no-header patch, then you'll get MSU-1 music with this hack.  Now, I can't guarantee it'll work all the way through the game (I haven't played the latest version all the way through yet), but my initial tests show it's working on the latest version.

Just for fun, here's an April 1st update:
Introducing  - Final Fantasy IV Ultima Everyone is Golbez Edtion! :D


You can get the patch here:
