ROM Hacks: Final Fantasy IV, typo-free
« on: July 19, 2012, 09:25:40 am »

Update By: Spooniest

There are lots and lots of Final Fantasy IV hacks on the site already, so you must be thinking, "Spooniest, you debonaire swashbuckling hex hero, what makes this one different?"

...Ok, maybe you're not thinking exactly that, but what makes this one different is that it cleans up the text from Joel Smith's "FF4 - Cosmetic Changes." A handful of typos remained from J2e's hack, and some punctuation and tone issues were present. The full change list is in the readme.

Maybe it's pointless to try to get anyone to play Final Fantasy IV again, but I'll be damned if I'm going to sit by while the only versions of the original SNES game available are riddled with typos.

SIDE NOTE: vivify93 requested that I change the ellipses in the game to the "single character" version that is found in the code, which I may still do, if I'm feeling saucy sometime.

Enjoy!

This looks amazing. I've always had my problems with the J2e translation and the weird font they decided to use. My only problem is that when I downloaded the patch and applied it to a clean FFIV (J) rom via LunarIPS it doesn't work. I'll start the game like normal, but when it gets to the first text box the game glitches up and I can't so anything? Any help? (By the way I'm using the latest release of Snes9x if that helps anyone.)

The ROM needs to be unheadered.
All my life I've tried to fight what history has given me.

@ sonicvssilver22: I PM'd you about it. I really don't know what it could have been, other than a headered/unheadered situation, as vivify93 said.

I wish this game had a dash button. I wish I knew how to do assembly hacking. I wish I had a million dollars.
I never wanted to work in a pet shop, you know. I wanted to be...a lumberjack.

Shouldn't this be categorized under Translation Addendums and not ROM Hacks?

Well, I didn't do any translating, just hacking. So I think the category is correct.

Or so I'm told.

How do you do this?
