Kinda an underhacked game here..Its a Quintet classic and has been a little forgotten. This one might be a little a longer play in getting an ultimate version done as i honestly have never beaten it and have done no research.i have however created my own personal version with apocalypse gaia hack, msu1, and some built in cheats. but i think there's an audience for it to be a much more developed project for sure. This might be a longer term project due to a lack of a proper complete retranslation(will need to see about this)..amongst having to do research and outsource some work..i should have a full tested beta version soon..nothing groundbreaking..but a start for sure.  Anyone interested In making this thing come to life drop a line.

*Quintet classic. Square had nothing to do with Illusion of Gaia.

But yes, retranslation with the Apocalypse Gaia and a couple QoL things would be amazing. I love this game

Thanks for the correction i updated the post.i got confused bc enix published it..and square and enix merged..seems its stuck in rights limbo right now with quintet hsving dissolved back in the day.

We need to see the progress you have actually made before this can be permitted under Personal Projects.

Testing version with msu1 and apocalype gaia merged now call it super early beta v.0001 until its tested as completable than id call it v.05 bc thats not even close to being good enough.contacting multiple people and researching script changes and tools for game much like terranigma project im testing a beta for. Interested in implementing an easier version like i did for death and return of superman resurrection..and super star wars jedi remaster which are both hosted on RHDN..otherwise waiting on feedback from community on what they might want and how to go about it.should i link to the merged patch for open playtesting?

If I remember, dark gaia it's too hard vs vanilla bosses.

This game can be upgraded with some features, but with romhacking.

- Actual RPG level grinding.
The enemies dissapear and there's no level system

- Shops
There's no shops usually, so you have to beat the game using few herbs.

- No backtracking

- Missable jewels (and get all for nothing, only the dungeon)

Note: Better don't use cheats or something to make more damage, because after beat the first boss,
there's a part that requires attack fishes to eat. Using cheats you kill these fishes so you're stuck there.

I have done some Illusion of Gaia hacking. I would be happy to see more hacks than just mine in the world.

You may or may not find value in my incomplete, ever-evolving disassembly notes.

...Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to do that first rather than starting a poll?

Anyway, I assume you've seen the TCRF page.

The difficulty of the first boss in the non-Japanese versions seems to be the focus of many complaints.

But really, if I ever get around to playing this game, I'll probably just stick with the vanilla version.

Quotei have however created my own personal version with apocalypse gaia hack, msu1, and some built in cheats.
I'm kind of surprised there's an MSU-1 hack for this at all, considering there doesn't seem to have been any official orchestral arrangement.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devisut by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

True absolutely. But im a plan ahead kinda guy bc my time is pretty limited.I have a playtester for the terranigna-pixel freemaster v1.0 and hes almost done so that v1.0 can release,and im testing turtles in time cowabunga correction v1.0 to get something for v1.0 release..an msu1 and non msu1 version..i feel like that will over time become an excellent version of the game.im hoping for widescreen support..a roll button. A whole bunch of stuff..and im finally almost  finished with ffv-pixel freemaster finalish version.ive playtested to completion almost like 5 times with different hacks at different times so im honestly sick of the game..lol..right after that unless i find a playtester ill be testing msu1 with himsong hacks/official trials of mana rom/and hues of mana for trials of mana remaster. Hopefully ill be working starting illusion of gaia on this sometime before end of year so i was thinking a poll to see if its really wanted was in order bc it could be intensive and honestly ive learned a lot but see this as a long term project bc there just isnt much for it to work with yet.its always easier when a bunch of stuff is already done separately and i can figure out how to tweak it all to work together..also when i actually have access to more than just a patch like with the msu1 files. My ffv pixel freemaster was really an issue of getting msu1 to work with everything as it was coded to the japanese version i based everything off of but had a lot of issues working with everything i kept wanting to add to it. The mario kart-freemastered hack is literally just 5 hacks already out there i patched together..only thing was i had to change the patching order multiple times and playtest each version til it was done. Ill check out those files thanks for the link.ill add first boss too hard to the list. Hopefully people will jump on board as ive heard s retranslation is also wanted for IOG...btw ive played IOG..just never beated it..ive picked it up and gotten far before..just never to the final boss.
