Don't be hasty to start your own mod; all our FFT modding projects are greatly understaffed. Find out how you can help in the Recruitment section.


The Lion War 1.05 - DOWNLOAD HERE!

Have you ever wanted to see the extra content in War of the Lions, but couldn't stand the slowdown, or the weird, faux old
English speak? Did you ever hear of Japanese content that was cut from the English release of FFT, and wonder why we never got
to see any of it? Do you hate the DEB 'feature' from vanilla? If so, then Final Fantasy Tactics - The Lion War, has you covered!


Finally after years of production and many many scrapped and remade builds, The Lion War is finally available for download!
Featuring all of the extra scenes and battles with De-WotLized speech, intro and opening movies and extra units from War of the Lions,
with the addition of Ashley Riot instead of Luso. You can even get Dark Knights as a generic class in The Lion War!
(Luso will be included in a different version of TLW, to replace Ashley Riot.)


In addition to the above, we've changed up the vanilla sidequest requirements a bit. See the Changelog thread for more info on this.


This is also the first mod to have fully functioning, english sound novels working in game! That's right, no softlocking, or google translate here.
We currently have 3 of the 4 novels, tested and curated over several years, completely functional, and we have a translator working on
getting the 4th one in proper english as well.


This is also the first mod to ever have the translated generic unit quotes added back in for all generic units in the game.
This feature, like the Sound Novels, was dummied out of the english version of the game, and never included in WotL. You can now
click start on any units name in the formation window to see their unique quote.


A lot of work went into making this all function correctly, and for anyone who wants to use TLW as a base for their own FFT mod, resources
will soon be supplied for a full build. We've also saved you ~130 event slots, so you can easily expand upon the story, add marks,
or whatever else you may want to use the space for.


This mod must be patched to an UNEXPANDED .bin/.iso/.img file.
Make sure to read the README.txt (or .nfo) to learn how to install the two ported WotL Movies


As with all initial releases of mods, there will likely be a bug or two lingering. Make sure to post any you find in the Bug Reporting Thread!!


(NOTE: New Game Plus is not yet complete for TLW, as we are perfectionists, and don't like releasing things in a half-arsed manner,
so the initial release will not contain this. A new Roster hack is still in the works as well, which will also be released at a later date.)

Thanks guys. I cant wait for this to be done and to start working more on Jot5 again.

While others have been beta testing, ive been organizing and creating batch files for all known Jot5 events we have planned, as well as any blank events so i can easily make batch files for using the offset rewritter as well as the multi-compiler.  Makes it much easier to event via savestate and just drop the event script into the correct spot for compiling, once its done.

And possibly what bugs we find, but so far they've all been fairly squashable, if not squashed already.

The few bugs that exist arent gamebreaking.

After tonight the only remaining bugs will be:
-Barrage graphic issue (does not affect function and will be fixed tomorrow)
-icon for reflect in spell descriptions is currently derped, will be fixed
-Zalera doesnt float.

Sorry, my original post was misleading, because I apparently cannot read a calender. The release was always supposed to be on saturday, not friday (considering i work 2:30pm -11pm during the week) lol. My bad. I'm exhausted from work and need to create 1 final build with last minute fixes, and don't want to miss anything.

I would project somewhere between noon and 2pm (12-14 hours from now) or sooner, depending when I wakeup.
