To get right to playing v3.0 visit https://archive.org/details/final-fantasy-v-pixel-freemaster-v2.0  (And patch to a ffv (japan)rom.) It's that easy.

Project has support as evidenced by poll. Working slowly on a possible final version..but it will be a while. Version 3.0 with optional folder 1(2 patches included )is Pretty much 95% of what v4.0 will be.Big thing is New Game Plus..which I included Optionally though it's untested.so make your own version 4.0 if you'd like for now..I'm a fan of giving a ton of value in each update. Test out the new game plus in optional folder two if you Beat the game and tell me if it works. :) lots of info and credit for all work included is in the readme file.

If you don't know what this project is, than it is my attempt at an ultimate version of FFV. I want this to be the definitive must play unofficial but better than the cash grab official release version of FFV. Included in this project is tons of different hacks and QOL features from many different authors..if it fits..it sits..in one of the easiest all in one patches you'll ever apply.
============================UPDATE V3.0==============================
Project officially called Pixel Freemaster..tons of new QOL stuff. Way better than v2.0. Makes version 1.0 look like PS1 FFV.
So much QOL stuff you'll wanna Softly SQUARE dance with a Dragon. (A riddle=more happy fans and less $ for evil Corporate Dark Lords)

This is an all-in-one single .ips patch.
Patches used in Final Fantasy V-Pixel Freemaster include:
MSU1 patch by Conn v4
GBA translation v1.16 patch w/Inu bugfixes patch
Bartz Name Fix v1.0 patch+Bug Fix v1.0 patch
quick death v1.0 patch
Galuf hair fix patch
Sprite touchups v1.03 patch
auto learning patch+auto dash patch

Better item Menu v1.0 patch
auto find pits patch+auto map patch+auto passages patch

*Added in version 3:
Switch characters in battle using X button (ATB Switch)
L and R switches characters & screens in Menu
Increased menu scroll speed
Dash on world map field with B button
Display total number of item slots used in item menu
HP displayed changes color as HP percentage decreases

Patches added in FFV-Pixel Freemaster-Kick Butz Edition
All patches listed  above in Pixel Freemaster
all Jobs unlocked v1.0 patch
*(note all Jobs unlocked doesn't go into effect until after you receive your first set of jobs in the story. Also Galuf's MIME job Sprite was never programmed into FFV game files-therefore when selecting MIME as Galuf's job he will be fully functional and usable,but invisible in the battle and menu)

Some optional patches are included in this download such as (see readme)
Optional equipping optimization patches (should work)
Optional new game plus patch (untested)

Download patch v3.0 (7zip) from:

Patch to unheadered Final Fantasy V (Japan) rom

::::::::::::ROADMAP:::::::::::::::
May have a version 4.0 that will include the optional equipping optimization patches and new game plus by default. Currently version 3.0 +the optional  patches=possible Final version of this hack.
===============================================================================
Make sure to follow each rom hack author included in this work and thank them for their contribution if you get the chance.(see readme for credits)

I hope you find some good use out of this version and enjoy all the QOL improvements it provides. Best way to experience this is with MSU1 audio. I hear there's even a pixel remaster MSU1 Pack out there somewhere.

Thank you to all authors included in this work,amazingly all your individual patches each filled an important role in what to me is just the best way to experience this classic. Alternatively follow T92 and his FFV-Tweaks rommhack.

Also try out my other hack Mario Kart-Super Circuit-Freemastered compilation hack...an actual collection of other patches that will probably be downloadable from RHDN before this one ever will sadly. https://archive.org/details/mario-kart-super-circuit-freemastered

These catch all projects are great for convenience and as a launchpad for other projects, nice work.

Hi all!

First things first: thanks for the time to collect all these patches and bring them to us together as an easy way to apply.


I've been playing for some hours (just finished first world, levels 20-22) and I think there is something wrong (or maybe it's intended to work like that, although I don't think so).

Everytime I try to equip a weapon (str or agi) such as swords, axe, lance, blades, bows and so on... the damage is almost nothing (20-30 points only, when on a clean rom is as usual, let's say 150-300). That made me play as monk (or barehand) with my str classes till now.

I guess it must be something related to "Weapon Formula Tweaks v1.3" patch, or maybe I'm missing something.

Any clue why this happens?


Cheers!

Yeah. Formula tweaks has that bug for some reason on non-vanilla ROMs.

The rules exist to protect the site from being sued out of existence. Like them or not, they exist to protect the site.

Wasnt just a submission of other patches..a lot of work actually went into making all these things and msu1 work together..conn the creator of the msu1 patch was actually impressed i put this together. Link for version 3.0 patch is https://archive.org/details/final-fantasy-v-pixel-freemaster-v2.0
Honestly it feels kinda diminishing what they put as the reason but whatever I'll keep working on it making it better all the way up to version 5.0 bc i feel like the community needs it.

I just released a v3.0 of this hack on archive.org for download with a ton of new enhancements
https://archive.org/details/final-fantasy-v-pixel-freemaster-v2.0
Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
Thing is that I don't really get the feeling anyone really cares about this hack very much. And It has taken a lot of time to get everything to where its at So I'm taking a step back to work on terranigma and a few other projects atm.I'm open to putting any hack in that improves the game in a version 4.0..only thing is I have included this patch already FF5 No Missable Items & Spells https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/6893/ so how is it different from the one I already patched in?
Thanks

Nintenja

Apparently this project will never be postable to RHDN for download as getting this many permissions to use each individual hack is shaping up to be impossible. Especially since the mods told me I'd need each author whose work is featured here not just to give me permission but to update his or her read me or hack download page to make their work open source basically.

At this rate this hack will never be posted here. But hey, v3.0 patch is posted to zeldix, archive.org,fantasyanime,and I think some kind of site about Romance with compact disks posted it too..:)

Glad to have the support.
I think the project is reaching the point of closeness to completion so i laid out the v4 and 5 roadmap..im thinking those will be the final two updates for this.v3 was a pretty decent leap up from 2.0. Also t92's ffv tweaks is kicking butz right now with a bunch of optimizations some different than this one also with more in store there so im excited for that versions completion also.
