Everyone knows the story of Final Fantasy IV by now. Yet, I've always wondered what if things had gone a different way? What if, say, Rydia had never joined your party? Or Kain had stayed with you after the incident in Mist? These questions and more are what this game explores, and tries to give a definitive answer to.

This is not a scene-by-scene remake, but rather a re-imagining of what I think a "parallel dimension" Final Fantasy IV would have played like. For the graphics, I took a lot of inspiration from the PSP remake, though I did try to up the quality of the graphics at least a little bit (especially using Celianna's tilesets which are amazing). Most of the tracks from the original game have been replaced with remastered/remixed tracks from all over the internet, such as OCRemix, the DS version, Dissidia, and many Youtube artists.

I'd like to note here that I went for a blending of several prior versions of the game in terms of the actual 'feel' of the game. Such as the title screen, I went for the classic U.S. release on SNES and just upped the graphics as much as I could. Other areas will have more of a SNES feel while others will reference the PSP and even DS versions at times. The maps themselves are similar to, but not exact, replicas of the original maps from the SNES version. Dialogue is going to be a mix of the Gameboy Advance translation with original story by me.

Lastly, a huge shutout and thank you to the dev of Legend of Balance. Your game was an inspiration and tremendous guide for me, and it's awesome.

IMPORTANT - If you come up with an error stating that you are missing the xinput1_3.dll then you will need the following (safe download from Microsoft's site) DirectX Jun2010

**Do NOT enter the Moon's caves post-game or else you will glitch your game!**

Reverted the build to a previous one (in which there were no significant issues save for the lag on the Overworld). My apologies for the inconvenience, but it seems that trying to fix the lag present only caused more issues.


Features:


- Random Encounter Radar System
- You may go to fullscreen by pressing ALT + Enter
- Battle Rows similar to the original game
- Classic side-view Final Fantasy-type battle system (Modified Journey Battle System)
- New cut-scenes and dialogue depicting an alternate version of events from the original story
- 15 to 30 hours of gameplay
- Battle Difficulty options
- Enemy HP Bars (they're visible when an attack is made)
- D-Pad functionality on Gamepads
- New "Lunar Expanse" bonus area (Boss rush dungeon)
- New "hidden" Arena


Special Controls:

To enter Lunar Whale's control room:
Keyboard - Q key
Gamepad - L button

Lag Killer & New Download

Hi peoples!

Got a pretty big update, and it's that I think I somewhat killed the L-A-G present on the Overworld (especially in late game). I've also fixed up a few passabilities in some areas, and I believe I fixed the whole post-game bug-whenever-entering-moon-caves-thingie. I've posted a new download for the game with these new updates (Google Drive) so I hope you'll take advantage. Oh, and you'll want to start a new save for the game after downloading this updated version. Old saves will work, but they'll be all wonky when going back and forth between Overworld and towns/dungeons.

Here's hoping the game performs better, and thank you all for your support! =)

So I just went do download the Google Drive version and my AV came up with a trojan alert. Not sure if fail-safe or not, just wanted to ask if it's safe.


I'm always scanning my files on a daily basis, and nothing ever comes up. It's a false-positive, because AV doesn't like downloading Exe files. If you prefer a 'safer' area, you can use the Gamejolt link and it'll download the same thing as Google Drive. Hope you enjoy the game!
I tried and got the same result, but I'll take your word for it and get it. Thanks :)
Hi Sphere, glad to see you are ok,but did you get my save file that I sent you?
Obviously I am being ignored now for some reason unknown to me.Oh well I enjoyed the game up to the ending

I've been in and out of the hospital for the past several weeks now with blood clot issues and pneumonia. You're not being ignored, I've just had little opportunity or motivation to check RMN. I did get your save file, and unfortunately you'll just have to start from the beginning with a fresh save. I did update the game page accordingly to account for the glitch as well. It's the most I can do for now. I'm glad you enjoyed the game regardless.

I REALLY hope you recover from your ailments,and once again my apologies
Hey, I have a bug or glitch with the newest version of this game. I was really enjoying it, spent days playing it, and got Cecil to Level 60 as a Fell Knight and the game said he learned Arise but it isn't in his spell list. :( I saved over my only copy of the game. Can I send you my save file so you can fix that? It's brought my gameplay to a crashing halt. :(

Actually that's a glitch of a different nature, that he isn't supposed to learn Arise but for some reason it still shows up (his Raise spell does Raise everyone though as a bonus). You can continue with your gameplay unhindered. =) Thank you for the compliments, and I'm glad you're enjoying the game!
Oh OK. Darn, I really would have liked Arise on him ... Oh well. Thanks for replying Sphere! :) Is there any chance you could make a revision to the game and let Cecil learn Arise at Level 60 and Curaga also and fix the Flan Armor so it properly protects against all status ailments? Also, a lot of the items that do spell effects don't work. :( That would help a lot, thanks!

For balancing reasons I really can't, as I wanted players to use Porom as their white mage mainly while relying on Cecil for damage output, buffs, and a quick save of the party with Raise if need be. If you ever have any trouble with a particular boss or an area, let me know.
Oh OK. :( Also, a lot of the items that do spell effects don't work. :(
Yay! I got an Adamant Armor from a Flan Princess! :) I'm going to try to get another one for Kain. I gave the first one to Golbez. Apparently it's missing Petrify protection? :(
Quick question, which enemy(ies) drop Silver Apples either in the Overworld, Underworld or on the Moon before the Post-Game? What about Soma Drops? And Golden Apples? Thanks!

Congrats! =) The Adamant Armor should have all the traits and resistances that the OG version has. If it's missing Petrify, it may be because the original didn't have it. I'll look into it at a later time when I'm alive (it's 6:30 in the morning lol).

The best way to get these (and they are very rare) before post-game is to do the hidden Arena, and also to go to the post-game's Lunar Expanse. As for individual enemies, I can't think of a random one that drops those save for the specialty/boss enemies.
Oh OK. I'll wait until the Lunar Expanse then. I've fought 3 more Flans but they didn't drop another Adamant Armor. I'm Level 99 for my party now. So I just Escape from any non-Flan battle.
I downloaded this and went to play, but for some reason my gamepad won't work? It works fine on other RPGMaker Ace XV games, but for this one only the keyboard is working. Any ideas?

Hmm it could be that your controller isn't compatible with the gamepad script that I'm using. The gamepad script allows for Xinput controllers (Xbox 360 for instance) to be used and for the directional pad to be used instead of the analog stick (among other things). What kind of controller are you using? I just tried the game with my Xbox 360 controller and it's working for me no problem.
It's a playstation controller hooked up to PC using an adapter.

I've been playing with the keyboard (which is awkward, these games really are made to be played with a controller) and been having fun so far. Just finished Mount Ordeals.

If you know of a way to get my gamepad working (it's not an xinput gamepad) then that would be useful, but the game is still playable with keyboard if not.

Yeah that's definitely not compatible with the gamepad script I'm using, so my apologies on that. The only thing I can think of that might make your controller work with the game is JoytoKey (which is a free download). I'm glad you're having fun with the game! Ordeals is one of my favorite areas. I hope you enjoy the rest of it! =)
