Readme From the Hack

Spoiler:
>> Major Changes From FF1 <<

-Many, many bugfix and enhancement patches applied
-Names of most things altered
-Several class' sprites modified somewhat
-Censored graphics restored
-Dual-wield ability given to Ninja and Bl.Belt/Master
-A few new consumable items added
-Most damaging-spells have a hit rate of FE (254), so they should usually hit in the greater half of their damage range
-Elemental magic does 2x (instead of 1.5x) damage against vulnerable enemies (3x if at level 50)
-Some spells (mostly White Magic) switched around; some of them had effects and/or effectivity altered
-Properties of some weapons and armor altered somewhat; several others were changed into entirely different things
-Shop inventories modified a bit
-Late-game monsters were beefed-up a bit; evasion lowered for earlier enemies; Magic Defense of most foes lowered
-Enemy groups' Surprise values now roughly scale with the point in the game in which they are encountered
-Several maps altered a bit (mostly cosmetically) and quite a few treasures changed
-Hidden treasures added to some towns
-Two hidden bonus areas added: one accessed from the first town (but only late in the game), and one from the last town
-Ship puzzle game gives 500 Gold (50000 if at level 50)
-All party members always gain experience after battle, even if dead or petrified--no more uneven experience!
-Oasis remains after opening the Bottle (has more items for sale now)
-Dialog window open/close speed is now tied to Respond Rate
-Harm (Dia) spells now injure enemies in the "Evil" category as well as the Undead
-You can "shoo" bats away by talking at them
-Level gains happen more quickly, especially towards the beginning
-In determining preemptives/ambushes, all party members' Agility and Luck are considered (rather than only the leader's)
-Plenty of other minor changes!

>> Job Class Overview <<

Knight [-> upgrade: Paladin]
<Pros>: A good attacker; Generally has the highest HP and defense; Has the most equipment options
<Cons>: No magic until class change
<Notable changes from FF1>:
-Paladin can learn all White spells of levels 1-4
-Paladin can equip the White Robe

Thief [-> upgrade: Ninja]
<Pros>: Has unique abilities; Is the best at escaping; Has excellent evasion; Becomes a good attacker later in the game
<Cons>: Somewhat feeble until after class change; No magic until class change
<Notable changes from FF1>:
-Gives the party special bonuses when he is the leader: More preemptives/less ambushes; Reduced random battles; Auto-dash
-Ninja can now dual-wield
-Ninja's equipment options restricted--no more heavy armor or large swords, axes, or hammers

Monk [-> upgrade: High Monk]
<Pros>: Attack and defense are good at low levels and amazing at high levels; High armor-carrying capacity
<Cons>: Has the lowest Magic Defense of all; No spellcasting ability whatsoever; Very limited equipment options
<Notable changes from FF1>:
-Can dual-wield
-Gets double hits even when using weapons now
-Can no longer equip armor (except the Ribbon), but Absorb is now equal to [Level x2] instead of [Level x1]
-Unarmed Critical Hit rate is now [Level x1] rather than [Level x2]

Red Mage [-> upgrade: Red Wizard]
<Pros>: The most well-rounded class, with access to good weapons, armor, and both types of magic
<Cons>: Lower MP growth and total MP than other mages; Doesn't seem so stellar in the later parts of the game
<Notable changes from FF1>:
-Red Wizard can now equip the White and Black Robes

White Mage [-> upgrade: White Wizard]
<Pros>: Access to all White Magic--the best for protection and recovery, with occasional damage-dealing (Dia, Holy)
<Cons>: A poor physical attacker

Black Mage [-> upgrade: Black Wizard]
<Pros>: Access to all Black Magic--good for annihilating enemies and raising friends' attack (Strike/Sever, Haste)
<Cons>: Physcial attack and HP are quite poor

>> Miscellaneous Notes <<

-Dual-wield: For the secondary weapon, only the damage and hit% are utilized; Only the primary weapon's special element/
category damage bonus and crit% are used
-When dual-wielding, the weapon in the upper-left slot is the primary weapon and must be equipped first--the secondary
weapon can be in any other slot
-The Ribbon now, rather than being considered headgear, has no armor "type" and can take the place of any other armor
-If examining this hack in FFHackster, be sure to Cancel out of every window rather than saving--I used values at times
that Hackster considers "illegal", and it may reset these to legal values automatically (breaking the hack)
-"Solo" quests should still be doable, though they may or may not be harder than in the original game
