Final Fantasy 1 DoS Cutscene Removal

Hack of Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls

Description:

In 2004 Square Enix (newly formed immediately prior to the release of this game) released Final Fantasy 1 & 2 Dawn of Souls in the west. And it was good… But there were problems with it. For one thing it was WAY too easy. For another, they added cutscenes that took way too long and in some cases actually blocked progression until you went through with them (such as the guard at Coneria blocking your ability to leave the town until you talked to him thus forcing a long cutscene with the King).

This hack doesn’t do anything for the difficulty level. This is solely for the latter. It removes either entirely, or close enough, the cutscenes to help speed the game up a bit.

In some of the removed cutscenes the music from the region will continue while the fanfare plays, but it’s not game breaking.

Update 1.1: Garland cutscene skip patch was bugged. Oops.
