- Patch Codes
Final Fantasy 1
This was one of my first RPG experiences
in the day. If you've looked at my Game Genie codes for this

project.. a program for Windows that lets you edit many aspects of the
game. Since the release of the official version and the source,
no more features are being added by the author. So, I decided to
create a companion program to edit some of the extra things I've
A similar program is also available to adjust parameters of anomiex's new INT / magic-fix patch for this game.
See below for additional documents related to this game.
The major part is the Sprite dialogue
where you can assign text strings to specific sprites and even change
conditions for what they say, along with a few other goodies. The
program also lets you tweak data for the hidden "ship game", as well as
the number hits in battle and the properties of some types of magic

freeze on certain emulators when you opened a treasure chest with gold

This program is designed to make selected adjustments to anomiex's
magic-fix patch. They mainly affect how the newly-incorporated
INT stat affects various families of spells. The goal is to find
a set of values that strikes a good balance in gameplay and to
determine the official values for the final version of this patch.
Note that if you do not have the patch, this program will be of no
use. As usual with patches, this should be applied to an original
copy of the game.
