Updates for the whole trilogy have been submitted to the database queue. These are the changelogs:
FF1: v1.3 - October 24th, 2019
-fixed the typo "Garland was a good knight"
FF1 Restored - 2019 Script Port: v1.3 - October 24th, 2019
-script updated to v1.3 of the translation
FF2: v1.7 - October 24th, 2019
- slightly updated font to match FF3 translation
- typo fixed (poorf --> poor)
- Beelezbub --> Beelzbub (kinda a typo fix but also had to abbreviate a bit due to lack of squish tiles)
- battle typo fixed ("Brea[glitchtile]" --> "Breth" short for Breath)
- "Mana" --> "M.Power" (for consistency with official FF2)
- B-Button Dash now optional patch
FF3: v1.3 - October 24th, 2019
- minor adjustment in stat screen
In addition to that, I am releasing my FF1 text editor, AirshipText
. It supports full text editing of pretty much any NES/Famicom version of FF1, and also has partial support for FF2 (can view text in the Japanese and translated versions). I am choosing not to put it on the database for now due to its rather incomplete state.AirshipText link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/j7r6c4980uux1x8/AirshipText.zip/file
And lastly...Final Fantasy I & II Multicart Translation
But sadly, there's a catch.
Unfortunately, saving in FF1 overwrites save slots 1-2 of FF2. I tried looking into why this happens, and could not find the cause. I even did a byte comparison of the FF2 portion of the multicart with vanilla FF2 and the only thing that's different is a typo in the Japanese intro text, along with some data bytes at the end. After some testing, I concluded that merely altering a byte in the intro text
of the FF2 portion causes the save issue (meaning it probably reads a checksum perhaps?), so I'm not sure how to go about fixing that.
So, when playing FF2 on the multicart patch, please only use save slots 3 and 4. Sadly because of this issue, I will not submit it to the database. With that said, this has my FF1 v1.3 patch and FF2 v1.7 patch on one cart. This is purely for novelty/experimental purposes!FF1 and 2 Experimental Patch Link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/0s51y7wxtdvtvfr/FF1%262Translation.zip/file
With that said, I would like to move on from ROM hacking now and focus my time and efforts on my own game. I won't be updating these translations anymore, so if anyone wants to take over and update them further, feel free to do so.
But also, support Square Enix for making these amazing RPG's in the first place. They helped shape the genre into what it is today. While I didn't get introduced to Final Fantasy until my late teens, I grew up playing the Pokemon series, and after playing the early Final Fantasy titles it's evident how much Final Fantasy influenced Pokemon and many other RPG series. So please, support Square Enix!
