Project II: Final Fantasy IV

Hack of Final Fantasy II

Description:

Project II: Final Fantasy IV is an extensive script rewrite of Final Fantasy II for Super Nintendo, made largely with Pinkpuff’s FF4kster. It’s common knowledge that when FFII released in 1991, it came with a sub-par script. Through the years, Final Fantasy IV received many English script revisions, but nearly all ports of the game have long load screens, lag, and sound issues. In addition, a wide swath of enhancements and bug fixes are only available for the English Super NES version.

One may ask, “Why not play J2e’s patch?” Unfortunately, J2e’s translation is rife with messy hacking, meme references, and a script that was half made up and half pulled from the English SNES script. Project II’s goal is to stay truer to the real FFIV.

With Project II, enter the Crusade for the Crystals once more in a refined experience.

Features:

  • Entirely rewritten script, taking elements from various translations of Final Fantasy IV.
  • Restored missing content: use Pray, Salve, and Recall, find SomaDrops and Firebombs in chests, learn Shell, and more.
  • Updated title screen by Paladin.
  • Every spell has an in-battle use, thanks to Dragonsbrethren and Deathlike2.
  • Improved battle commands: Regen heals 160 HP per round, Cry lowers Magic Defense, plus others.
  • Reverted censored map graphics: the Baron dancer strips again.
  • Plethora of bug fixes.
  • Sirens can be bought from an end-game shop.
  • Supplementary lists for understanding equipment properties.
  • …And much more. See the readme for detailed information.

Players looking for a more modern take on in-game terms, as well as the original maps, enemy difficulty, and title screen, check out Final Fantasy IV: Namingway Edition by Rodimus Primal.
