Phantasy Star II Modernization

Hack of Phantasy Star II

Description:

The purpose of this hack is to mitigate many of the flaws of Phantasy Star II in order to create an overall play experience more similar to that of Phantasy Star IV. This means decreasing the amount of level and money grinding, increasing the number of references to other games in the series, script improvement, bug fixing, and more.

Major changes include: character niches and specialties are enhanced, technique arsenals are improved and mastered more speedily, shop and treasure chest contents are streamlined, characters join with better equipment, useless items are retired in favor of better ones, enemy names are expanded and made more consistent with the other games, etc.

We are currently on Version 4.0, the sixth release of this hack. 4.0 is a complete rebuild from the ground up using the Phantasy Star II Disassembly document by lory1990, available on this site. This version introduces new enhancements, including an entirely rewritten script! Please see the readme for details, and thank you to everyone who tries the hack!

Please note, patched ROMs may need to have their checksum corrected before they will play. The suggested fix for this is to use FixChecksum.exe.
