Final Fantasy V - GBA Script Port

Hack of Final Fantasy V

Description:

As the name implies, this hack is a complete port of the English GBA game’s script over the original RPGe fan translation, using Noisecross’ FFe Text Editor v1.6. This hack replaces all in-game field text, battle text, spell names, item names, monster names etc. with their relevant GBA equivalents, except where compromises had to be made to accommodate the stricter space limitations of the SNES game. An attempt was made to prefer new creative names over jarring abbreviations where necessary to fit space limitations. Graphics for the fonts were also edited, with the main variable-width font replaced with the thin font from Earthbound, purely because it allowed more space for text, especially in battle. NOTE: As of v1.04, this font has been replaced with a thin font that resembles the font from FF4, for greater consistency.

The project thread is here.

The patch should be applied to an unheadered, Japanese Final Fantasy V ROM.

As of v1.1, the new spell system (-aga, -ara) is used rather than the old numbered system.

As of v1.07, the .zip file now contains two extra patched to be applies OVER the initial patch. One contains various bugfixes from slickproductions.org, the other is an optional patch to make Galuf’s hair consistently ginger. Further details are in the readme.

Changelog is now in the readme.

The only sane way to play FFV for SNES

Reviewed By: jmd6488 on 29 Jul 2020

The ported GBA Script is fantastic in its own right, but the real gem here is the glorious Bugfixes.ini. It has it ALL! Fixes for all the bugs, anomalies and shortcomings that plague this version of the game. And faster enemy death animations was included as the cherry on top!

Add in the later 2 romhacks that touch up battle sprites and allow dashing, and you have a wonderful, if not best, version of Final Fantasy V.
