There are a few good things from the FFTA series.  I like that there are no random battles for instance and that you can see and avoid your enemies.

Question:

How much event and scenario editing can be done so far?  From what I've seen of a lot of other projects, it seems that they take the same story sequences, but change the dialogue and sprites around.  And you still fight in the same maps in the same order, on the same world map.

If so, then it might be best to work on finding out how to change these things, so that you can use the core engine of FFT, but make truly new games out of it.

And, it'd be nice to make truly new abilities, animations, as well as R, S and M abilities.  

My idea of a fan-made PC pseudo-sequel to FFT is great.  However, it'd be insanely hard to pull off, since we'd have to work from the ground up.  There would have to be a ton of work put into it, and I think the technical skills required for it are above any of the people here.  So this approach is potentially the most rewarding, but also the most difficult.

Ok... Does anyone have a clue how to get this even started?


Not really.  We'd have to go around FFT and gaming communities and try to recruit people with spare time and programming skills.  Which is why it might be nice to come up with some sort of project name, and make a forum on this board, as a kind of "homebase" for the time being.  

If Rozenkreuzstilette and other doujin games can be made, which are parodies or "tributes" of other games, then a spiritual sequel of FFT can be made.

I think such a project would be needed since it's clear that Square will never make a real FFT sequel.  Just more Advance series drivel.

I suggest that this type of project should get it's own forum ^__^

Nicovideo would probably be the best spot (it's like a japanese youtube).  However, I wouldn't know what the proper search terms would be to search for them.

PSX FFT Hacking / Anywhere that I can view the japanese content?
« on: November 04, 2008, 06:34:33 AM »
There's some stuff in the japanese version of FFT that never made it into the english version.  It mostly seems to be some mini-games, and some novels that you could read.  I checked youtube, but strangely, no one has played the japanese version and uploaded videos of this content.  Does anyone know where I can see what this stuff was?

From gamefaqs:

Score challenge mode (Japanese version)

Obtain the Book Of Life in Chapter two. Stop reading the book before reaching the "Good Ending". Then, read through the book again to access a hidden "Score Challenge mode". This mode allows the Chocobo Race sequence to be played for money.

Old Project Ideas / My Dream Project: Online PC FFT sequel

The PSX is a nice system but it has a lot of limitations, and you can only go so far with hacking.  Creating a new engine to run just an FFT style game would be perfect.  

    It can have higher res graphics (but would keep the same basic style).

    The battle system could be over-hauled too.  Remove the grid based maps for instance, and instead have movement/attacks, etc be based on spheres.

    Keep all of the good FFT stuff of course.  Using the more balanced classes from 1.3 would be a nice start.  

    It could also open up the possibility for online play as well.  This would need some balancing.  Automatically making each team the same level might be a start.


If you change things enough, it could also be entirely legal.  Like RosenkreuzStilette, which is heavily inspired by Mega Man games.  Though, if this route is taken, then (sadly) all the distinctly FF stuff would have to be removed or renamed.
