Final Fantasy III Maeson Mix

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

Final Fantasy III Maeson Mix is a rom hack of, obviously, Final Fantasy III for the Famicom/NES.

It features a long list of gameplay changes to create a different experience compared with the original title, aiming for a bigger sense of variety and replayability, but without trying to make a different game.

The hack is divided in a series of independent patches (each one focusing in one aspect, like Magic, or Weapons) in an attempt to let players choose which parts of the hack they want to try, make personal combinations or just take that one thing you may be interested in, but there’s a special patch that will install the “standard” version of the hack.

Some of the changes are:

  • Improvement of Black/White/Terrain Magic.
  • Numerous changes in weapons and armor; everything has been touched in some way.
  • Classes have received changes in their base stats and their equipment options, allowing them to have more possibilities.
  • A serious reworking on the underused Steal and Drop mechanics, thanks to the fantastic help of STARWIN.
  • An optional patch (Even Moar HP) to give monsters more HP and altered stats if you feel like it, and I recommend playing with it to make it more interesting.
  • 1.1 Addition: A new path named Magic Expansion that will increase the number of classes that use magic, changing how some classes are played or making others more useful.

It also improves on some equipment’s usability groups and fixes a couple of problems.

There’s also a few simple aesthetic patches to give a different taste to the game, you can mix and match and find a combination you like or revert to the original with ease!

There is a lengthy text file explaining all the changes made to the game, patch by patch. It is very recommended to take a look at it first.

  • 1.2 Changes: Prices, Shops, Bosses, Enemy Drops, and a few things more have been changed around.

You can’t buy the best weapons anymore, some have items not available to purchase before, and some of the prices have changed, mostly spells and equipment.

Most bosses have more HP, and a good chunk of them have altered stats, added elements or status ailments to their attacks.

Enemies now drop early-game equipment during the first part of the game, something that didn’t happen before. Others enemies drop different usable items.

Lastly, I added another optional patch that changes some of the Run Away command quirks. Originally, the game makes your defense and evasion 0 if you try to flee from a battle, making you incredibly weak and can very well mean Game Over unless you have several thousands of HP while fighting weak enemies.

This patch will make you don’t fall under “defenseless status” and get 0 defense.

1.2.2 I’ve fixed the aesthetic patches (Character and Ingame Menu palettes). If you used the ad0220 those optional patches wouldn’t work properly.

Now there is two folders, one contains patches for Japanese/Alex W. Translation, and the other for ad0220 translation.

1.2.3 Addressed a bug in the Magic Expansion patches where characters would start a new game knowing spells they shouldn’t, and now they should work with no problems whatsoever. Also, added images with all the alternate colors for the classes.

The package is also more organized.
