Default New Hack! - Final Fantasy 3 Platinum

Here' s my Final Fantasy 3 Platinum hack. It is for the US SNES version of Final Fantasy 3.

Final Fantasy 3 was a great, but rather flawed game. There were many parts in the game that I consider 'broken' and in need of being fixed to maximise the game's fun. Basically, I adjusted the game's challenge to be at a more appropriately difficult level, and did a bunch of tiny little changes to remove the cheap tactics that the player can use to easily beat the game. In summary, I use a huuuge layer of polish to make this game faaaar more playable and fun than I believe it was previously.

For more specifics, see the changes.txt file for a specific description of all the numerous changes in the game.

I put it up here while waiting for the mod to help me post this in the ROM hacks section on the Zophar website.

BTW, I'd like to get any sort of feedback I've spent a huuuuuge amount of time on this, and a medium amount of time making it so other people can download it. If people don't leave feedback, there's not much point

So please leave feedback

*cracks knuckles*

...

You cannot run from ANY battles other than the one with the undefeatable Guardian. <-- that's a huge turn off

Some insanely unexpected enemy powers are now balanced out to avoid them wiping out your party in one hit. <-- oh great, stuff is even easier now...

Made it so none of the enemies in the Fanatic's Tower can use Rasp. <-- there goes one tactic

Some weapons were changed to something less broken in terms of gameplay. <-- I don't get this one...

As for the contents of the zip, I will never run an exe patcher. I only take IPS files. Call it paranoia or whatever you want, but that's what I do because I don't trust anything over the internet.

Ah, okay, so here's your ideal Final Fantasy game -

You get into battles from which you must always run because one enemy can kill your entire full HP party in one hit.

OOH! That sounds like soooo much fun! Tell me when you release your challenge / gameplay patch!

Look, I didn't decrease the game's challenge. I made it more FUN and more fairly CHALLENGING. How much fun is it to have your entire full HP party killed in one hit for no reason after spending 10 minutes getting through a portion of the level? How much challenging is it to be able to run away from every single monster in the game?

Also, I'll put up the IPS version of the patch if I am asked nicely.
