Hack of Final Fantasy II

Description:

This patch does four things and four things only:

  • While walking in towns, dungeons, etc., the player can now press the Y button to run. In the Field, the player can use Y to toggle running. Y will also toggle slow flying in the airships for accurate landing (helpful when landing at Toroia, specifically)
  • The “Stereo/Mono” option in the Custom menu has been changed to “Mode Active/Wait.” This allows the player to switch from Wait mode (monsters will not attack you while you choose an item or spell) to Active mode (monsters’ turns continue while you make these decisions).
  • During battle, the player can now press X to defer to the next ready character
  • The toggle between viewing Max HP and the ATB percentage is now controlled in battle by pressing Select

The rest of the game has been left entirely untouched, to allow for easy patching into virtually any working hack (barring a large amount of custom code already having been implemented). The idea was to implement some user options into FFIV that were not introduced in the franchise until later games.

This bundle now also contains an extra patch, “Change to Cache.” This allows access to The Big Chocobo’s extra inventory from the menu screen. Please read the Readme for more information.

  • **Version 3.1 corrects a bug from version 3.0 that broke dashing and slow flying functionality on the Moon and Underworld maps**

Makes playing the original fun again

Reviewed By: Rodimus Primal on 05 Jan 2015

In todays age of all Final Fantasy games having B Button Dash, a visible ATB meter, and the choice of Active/Wait, it was a shame the NES and SNES games don’t have these options. But thanks to this, Final Fantasy IV can be played on the SNES with these options available. No longer is it a chore to walk everywhere or have to waste a turn on a character. Giving newbies the option to choose Wait so they have time to pick an item or spell helps tremendously.
