Latest Patch: 1.69. If you have an earlier version, please download the latest patch as soon as possible.

The download has been updated to version 1.69. It includes all fixes up to this point. There is no need to re-download if you have patched in the fixes separately.

You know that game many aspiring devs create? The one starring their friends, often times based on a chat room, or some forums, or a MMO... or perhaps a fangame that barely resembles its source material. The one that gets maybe a half hour of gameplay finished and is completely unintelligible to anyone except that group of friends. Yeah, that one. Now, what if someone actually saw that project all the way through, and attempted to actually make it a fun, accessible, and playable game that was faithful to its source material?

Enter Legend of Balance. This game originally started out as a fun little project for friends, starring characters from Final Fantasy XIV. Over time, and with a ton of effort, it changed into a complete game of its own. It still stars our characters, and there are still a few injokes, but the plot has been set up as such that any Final Fantasy fan can get into the game and enjoy it as a light hearted Final Fantasy romp. Players of FFXIV will find quite a bit to enjoy as well. The story of the game takes place inbetween the end of FFXIV 1.0 and the start of A Realm Reborn(if you haven't played FFXIV, this part probably doesn't matter, and the game can be standalone).

The game revolves around a group of heroes, champions of the realm of Eorzea. In the midst of an intense battle to decide the fate of Eorzea, the heroes are transported away before facing certain death at the hands of Bahamut. Finding themselves separated in a brand new world, the heroes begin a journey to reunite and find a way home. However what starts off as a simple quest quickly unfolds into a classic journey of crystals, great evil, and steadfast allies. Before this adventure ends, they will discover the truth behind this strange new world, and uncover the binds that tie it to their own home and beyond.

-30 to 40 hours of gameplay, including a multitude of sidequests.

-Enjoy a faithfully recreated Final Fantasy battle system. Everything is as you remember it from the classics!

-Utilize classic abilities, including commands such as Jump, Runic, Blitz, Mime, Throw, Mix, Blue Magic, Dualcast, and much more, along with new commands and abilities based on other games in the series, such as Draw Out from Tactics.

-Equip Magicites to gain access to powerful summons and customize your stat growth.

-A huge cast of unique playable characters, including several hidden ones.

-Find and use faithfully recreated equipment. Favorites like the Ultima Weapon, Illumina, Brave Blade/Chicken Knife, Offering, and much, much more is all here to find and use to become unstoppable!

-Dozens of sidequests ensure there's plenty to do, with no need for excess grinding.

-Face off against familiar foes and brand new ones, including a nostalgia filled bonus dungeon for those who complete the main story.

-Facing a foe that your current party can't handle? Switch party members anytime, even in the middle of a fight!

-Buy rare and unique items at the Auction House, and battle in the Colosseum!

-Take part in minigames, including fishing and an arcade-style airship shooter.

-Customizable Battle Speed, Battle Mode, and Difficulty will get you the experience you want, be it tough as nails or a more relaxed game.

Playing the game at higher resolution

Hey all! I just wanted to post a link to an upscaler that will let you play pretty much any rpgmaker game at a much higher resolution.


Download this and follow the instructions, open Magpie, then the game, then press alt+F11. I'd suggest using either the Anime4k or CRT upscalers for LoB. This will let you play the game in fullscreen and it will look really nice!



It is in the Western Forest, the first "dungeon" area in the game.
Thanks. Now I just need to search the whole world to find Dark Ixion. I know he spawns randomly, but are there set locations for him to spawn?
There are 5 locations:

1. Small island west of the southwest continent
2. Area near the hunters lodge
3. South of Enaya
4. Near Valkrum Resort
5. Desert south of the Riverside Cabin
Thanks. Also, what is the name of the script you used to change the town name?
It is a custom script job by me, made to work with the scripts Custom Map Name by WCouillard and Location Window by Dorkfr3sh. Basically what it does is when you name the town, you are actually naming an unused actor. Then, the map name windows just display the name of that actor for that specific map instead of the map name.
I am at the part where I have been told to go to Mielo Caverns to meet Chrys, how do I get there? I been roaming the world on my ship for ages and can't find anything. I wish there was a world map I could look at. Please help!!
Mielo Caverns are located South East of Aquaria. If your at Aquaria, travel east until you hit a land, then travel south around the coast till you find a dock.

There is also a world map, you can hit either Tab or Start on the world map to access it.
how to get past the three tile spikes inside the Malum Arce castle? I explored everything else. Help please!
You have to dash past when the spikes are down like the others you already went by. If you do not know how to dash, you can do so by pressing the X button on your controller, or the space button on your keyboard. You can also enable auto dash through the config menu.
After you beat the bonus dungeon(which I have now done) how do you find the powered up version of the last boss?
He should just be stronger after the bonus dungeon is cleared, you just go to beat the game again.
Where to find a black chocobo so I can go to Genesis Tree?
First, you have to go to the chocobo stables in Squeenix and speak with the NPC there. After that, go to the chocobo forest to the northeast, on the same continent, north of Kokkol's Forge. You'll see a black feather, interact with it and you're good from there.
Thanks for helping everyone, I have finished the game. Great story, soundtrack, and game mechanics. Hats off to the team. :)
Grats on finishing the game, and thank you for the compliments!
I'm curious, what script did you use for summons?
Just action sequences in Tankentai.
Oh. My game uses frontview, so no summons for me.
With a front view you can probably just make the sprites part of your animations, unless you're using something like Mystic Quest or Phantasy Star or something where the characters are visible too.
Hello RydiaMist. I am a friend of URPC and did a LP of his Final Fantasy Blackmoon Prophecy. I am going to LP your game next :). I love FF and the fan games :D
