  • Hacks
    A new optional bug fix patch has been added to the downloadable file.
  • Games
    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

Final Fantasy III Platinum

Hack of Final Fantasy III


The author believes that Final Fantasy 3 was a great, but rather flawed game. There were many parts in the game that many considered broken or unbalanced. In this hack, the game’s challenge was adjusted to be at a more appropriately difficult level, there was done a bunch of little changes to remove the cheap tactics that the player could use to easily beat the game. Common bug fixes were also applied.

This game has been tested all the way through 6 times, and the author is quite happy about how everything turned out.

Huge Thanks -

Of course, this hack would not exist without the great FF3USME ROM hacking program by Lord J. and his mighty crew of contributors -

Also it wouldn’t exist without FF3Edit program by Yousei and Eizneckam at Tortured Realms.
