Oh, thank you! I did stumble on that thread during my search, but the link didn't work, and everything they said about doing it manually was just gibberish to me. I downloaded the zip file you provided and gave the hack a try. The portraits are indeed gone. Played it up to the end of the Ship Graveyard as a test, and everything seems to be in working order. There's a bit of blank space on the left side of the dialogue boxes where the portraits would go however. Not really a problem, it just looks a bit odd. If there's no (easy) way to fix it, I think I can live with it.

On another note, there's actually two ips files in the zip folder you gave me though. Do you happen to know what the other one, the one that's just called "ff5", does?

Hello there all. I came here because I am very desperately looking for a particular hack. Since this is a community of hackers, I thought I might have some luck here. The past few days, I have kind of been wanting to replay Final Fantasy V, and while I have the GBA version of the game, which is fantastic, it has one major flaw in my opinion: the character portraits that come up whenever a major character talks are ugly. Like... super ugly. Especially Lenna's. I know some people like Amano's artwork, but... I'm just not one of those people, sorry. I'd really like to be able to play the game without these portraits, so I was wondering if a hack exists that can change or even just remove them. I've already searched around a bit, but the one and only link I could find to any such hack was dead.

Can anyone here help me find the kind of hack I'm looking for, or if no such hack exists/can be found, then (and I know this is a long shot) I don't suppose anyone here would be willing to try to make one?

Here's the dead link I mentioned earlier, just in case it might help with tracking down the hack that was once there: slickproductions.org/forum/index.php?topic=1657.0 I think I actually saw this hack once a long time ago, and the portraits resembled the character sprites. Hopefully that sounds familiar to someone.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!
