Hi all, so let me summarize here what this is about!

I'll go ahead and copy/paste the introductory message I have on my site.


Summary
Final Fantasy IV Tweak is an online ROM editor/patcher for Final Fantasy IV (Specifically a ROM of Final Fantasy II US v1.1). The current scope is to edit commands. The usage is very straightforward, browse to the Command editor and start messing with all the options at your like, when you're done with the changes, go to the Generate File tab, you have to provide your ROM of Final Fantasy II US v1.1, and finally just click the blue button labeled as Generate file, a download window may prompt asking you to download the patched ROM and that's it!

Summary of the summary
Go to Final Fantasy IV Tweak, mess with all the settings until you're happy, upload your ROM, generate the new ROM with the changes you just picked, go play and enjoy!



Scope of the project
Let's hit the reality for a second, this is definitely not a ff4kster, not even near.

The scope of this editor are the commands, battle comands, yes, that's pretty much it. The editor has many settings here are there, but my original idea and the one I want to highlight is the customization of battle commands.

I always try to come up with new settings, if you check the website's changelog I usually update it monthly if my time allows it.



Feedback
If you find something that's not working either in the website or with the ROM you generated please let me know to see If I can fix it!

Also, any feedback regarding the feel of the website is welcomed as well, it's complex to come up with something that's straightforward so people can discern how to use the tool right away!

Or if you have questions with anything, understanding what this is, if I explained something poorly, please let me know as well!
(seriously, if I suck at explaining please let me know! What we all want here is to understand what's going on :thumbsup:)



So what can we find?
Images may be worth more than paragraphs of explanations (hopefully  :laugh:)

I'll leave the relevant sites down here so you can experiment with the editor as well!

Will it work with ROM Hacks like Final Fantasy IV - Ultima?

Hi, it depends on the setting that you want to modify. Some settings will work on Final Fantasy IV - Ultima, some others will do nothing. If the part you want to modify has already been modified by Final Fantasy IV - Ultima then there's a good chance that nothing is going to happen.

I added a couple new options today  ;)

Version 1.12 (2022/05/28)


    Added "Customize spell chain" option under Spell setting for Pray
    Failure under Pray has been renamed to "Success %" and the input has been changed to numerical
    Added "Set value on user's attribute" option under Rework setting for the (Dummy) command
    Some existing settings have been moved under "Some algorithms" in Miscellaneous
    Attack multiplier settings have been expanded for a more customizable algorithm


One example of what we can do know:
As you can see below, now we can pick two spells instead of just one with Pray which allows us to try interesting combinations like Cure1 + Heal!

Nice!  I love online editors like this!  Are there any features you're thinking of adding?  I've been messing around with modding FF4 with JS (most of which is just a JS rewrite of PinkPuffs FF4kster visual basic code, and also some I've written myself), so I might be able to give you some code that you could copy right into your editor, if that'd help.

The biggest feature I've got (that's not a FF4kster JS rewrite) is a script that allows me to set enemy attack/multiplier/defense/magdef/speed arbitrarily per monster, and then rewrites the lookup tables to automatically accommodate the new desired values and then points each monster to the new table slots (it's not perfect since there are limited slots, but it uses K-means to find a "good enough" fit for the new values, and you can have it give a warning if any values are too far off from the desired values). I was thinking of making an online tool out of this but I've been too lazy so far.

Hey, thank you!

A JS rewrite of FF4kster sounds great. Reason #1 because I don't know too much about visual basic myself haha.

When you ask for adding new feature I guess we are referring to your JS mods? Well, it sounds cool but how would the UI look to make it functional? Do you get what I mean? Maybe it's easier for you to imagine right away how it should look. You can definitely give it a shot yourself to create an online tool just as I did! And I know the feeling haha, some days I don't feel like working on these stuff at all, while some other days I can put hours into this.
