Final Fantasy V is a role playing game for the Super Nintendo.
The game was released in the States as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology, complete with Ted Woolsey’s script that was done before the SNES Square translation was scrapped.
The game is pretty straightforward Final Fantasy, except for the Job System that the characters use. You have a large selection of jobs, and there’s no penalty in switching from one job to another (unlike FFIII). Battles earn you points that go towards leveling up these jobs, which give you extra abilities.
Strategic Battle patch
The hack changes the job system. All jobs, without exception, only have the fight and the item command as default. All other commands must be learned by gained ABP before they can be used. It raises the difficulty of the game because many commands, given by free as a default command for a job, aren’t available until they are learned.
For better customization, all jobs have three slots available for extra abilities, similar to the mimic job in the original game. To balance this feature, with few exceptions, jobs don’t have innate abilities in this version of the hack.
The list of abilities by job was also redesigned for the new system. They were updated with relatively lower ABP costs and better distribution of abilities by job. Also, a few commands were updated or redesigned.
The hack is intended as a moderated challenge for players.
NOTE: Use this patch over RPGe’s English Translation of the game.
