    And I forget to fix the version number which is actually 1.8

    The target ROM info was wrong. Patch is meant to be applied to Phantasy Star II (USA, Europe), NOT the (Rev A). How do I know that? Wayback machine, they used to distribute the patched rom. It matches MD5 checksum when NOT using the (Rev A) rom.

Dragon Warrior III Bug Fix Patch

Hack of Dragon Warrior III

Description:

Bugfix #1:

The “character creation overflow” bug.

When creating a new character, this bug would result in glitches to other characters’ spells and items, if you had reached the maximum number of characters (eleven).

It could result in the Hero learning a lot of spells early, but not being able to cast them outside of battle. It could also result in other characters gaining or losing spells, or items.

This will no longer happen.

Bugfix #2:

The “baseline overflow” bug.

After a certain level, characters would stop making significant gains in stats that they previously had high gains in. This was an error and was not intended by the developers.

It was most obvious with the goof-off, who would stop gaining more than one point of luck at level 25. Other characters would also experience this bug at higher levels – for instance, the fighter would stop gaining strength or agility at level 55.

This has been fixed, and stat gains will now work as intended at high levels.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Dragon Warrior III (U).nes
  • CRC32: 0eb63e83
  • MD5: 3ef863d2df43e805bad70f74f0ccd909
