I'm my own personal tentacle monster.

Spoiler for Why the hell am I doing this?:
Good question.  :dead:

Final Fantasy IV is one of my favorite Final Fantasies, and one of my all time favorite RPGs.  Once I started playing around with RPG Maker VX, I got inspired to make the attempt to make this, even though there's already three other FF4 official remakes.  With any luck, if this is successful, I'll be able to make a sequel or two based on this little universe.
Spoiler for About FF4 (in case you just crawled out from under a flat rock):
Five airships speed across the sky.  The Red Wings, the air force of the kingdom of Baron, are on their way home after completing a successful raid upon Mysidia for the Water Crystal.  Their captain, Cecil, reflects back on this mission, which took place only hours before.  Although it was the king’s order, Cecil and his men feel guilty about taking the Crystal from the innocent people of Mysidia.  But Cecil reminds them that they are the proud and mighty Red Wings of Baron and must always remain loyal to the king.

Still torn by guilt, Cecil brings the Crystal to the king of Baron.  He starts to leave, but decides to ask the king his intentions.  Accused of disloyalty, Cecil is stripped of his command of the Red Wings and ordered to go hunt the Phantom Beast plaguing the Mist Valley northwest of Baron… And so begins an epic tale of betrayal, love, and redemption as the dark knight Cecil departs on his journey of awakening.  His travels will take him around the world and beyond, where he will find both fearsome enemies and new allies.  Only by renouncing everything he has known will he be able to succeed in a quest that will ultimately decide the fate of the world.

~Summary from Final Fantasy Chronicles Official Site
Spoiler for Characters:

Name: Cecil Harvey
Class: Dark Knight
Age: 20
Abandoned in a forest near Baron as an infant, Cecil was found and brought in by the King of Baron, adopting him as his own.  He grew up with Cain, a young man who was also later adopted by Baron's king when his parents died, and Rosa, whom he later became romantically involved with.

As Cecil grew older, he eventually joined Baron's military, and rose through the ranks.  He became the commander of the Red Wings, Baron's airship force, but his primary position is as the overall commander of Baron's military.  However, in order to attain such a rank, he had to take up the art of the Dark Sword, something he later begins to question.


Name: Cain Highwind
English Name: Kain Highwind
Class: Dragon Knight
Age: 21
Cain was orphaned at a young age, when his parents were killed in war.  The King of Baron, once friends with his parents, took pity on him and adopted him.  He grew up with Cecil and Rosa and the others at Baron Castle.  Though he could have attained a higher rank in Baron's military, he decided to honor his father and became a Dragon Knight.


Name: Rydia
Class: Summoner
Age: 7
Rydia grew up in the summoner village of Mist, where she was cherished as a promising and talented summoner.  Her peaceful life is destroyed, however, as her mother is accidentally killed and her village is destroyed.  Though Cecil was the one inadvertently responsible, she finds it in her heart to forgive him when he defends her from Baron soldiers sent to kill her.


Name: Tella
English Name: Tellah
Class: Sage
Age: 60
A sage supposedly originally from Mysidia, Tella currently resides in the desert village of Kaipo with his daughter, Anna.  When she is supposedly hoodwinked into running off to Damcyan with a "spoony bard" (*cough*), he sets out to go after her.  Unfortunately, in his old age, he doesn't stand a chance against the monsters of the Water Cavern, and waits for someone powerful enough to assist him.


Name: Gilbart Chris von Muir
English Name: Edward
Class: Bard
Age: 24
The crown prince of Damcyan and ruler over the desert, Gilbart is a delicate and frail individual.  Despite this, he often disguises himself and sets out into the world, traveling as a bard.  It was during one of his travels that he meets Anna, the daughter of the great sage Tella.  Tella, however, did not approve of their union, mostly because the sage thought of him as only a lowly bard.

Name: Rosa Farrell
Class: White Mage
Age: 19
A resident of Baron, Rosa met with Cecil and Cain at an early age and quickly became friends with both of them.  However, while they went off to military school, she went off to study white magic, quickly becoming a powerful mage.  It was during this time that she and Cecil started to develop a romantic interest in each other, and she worries for Cecil and what he's become.

Name: Yang Fang Leiden
Class: Monk
Age: 35

Name: Porom
Class: White Mage
Age: 5

Name: Palom
Class: Black Mage
Age: 5

Name: Cid Pollendina
Class: Engineer
Age: 54

Name: "Edge" Edward Geraldine
English Name: Edge
Class: Ninja
Age: 26

Name: FuSoYa
Class: Lunarian
Age: ???

Name: Golbeza
English Name: Golbez
Class: Necromancer
Age: 32


What is Finished
  • All town maps
  • All secret doors and hidden passages.
  • All overworld caves except the Magnetic Cavern
  • The overworld map
  • The music (thank you, Yeyinde)
  • General mock up of scripts that are needed; not all scripts are there.

Getting there!

What Needs to be Done
  • Underworld and Moon maps.
  • Missing character graphics.
  • Rest of the maps.
  • Of course, eventing and story.

What I'm doing next
  • Finish the cave maps.
  • Make missing graphics for tech places like the Tower of Zot.

Spoiler for What needs to be done that I CAN'T do.:
  • ATB System: Not as big as it was; this is included in the demo.
  • Support for Five Party Members: Another major thing, as there can be up to five characters in your party at any time in FF4. - This is included in the demo, however it is not working right.
  • Switching Rows: Specifically important when back attacked. This would also require editing the side view battle script to show that there ARE rows.
  • Character Specific Special Commands: another big thing, seeing as the best abilities are from characters. This includes Cain’s Jump (jump up into the air and come down on the character’s next turn), Dark Knight Cecil’s Dark (I like the DS version; the command shrouds Cecil in Darkness, using up a turn, and on the next turns he does x3 damage, but looses HP), Paladin Cecil’s Cover (take damage for the character selected. This is also an auto command that takes damage for a character low on HP. This also requires movement from the battle system — Cecil needs to step in front of the character he’s covering), Tella’s Recall (casts a random spell that he “forgot”. It’s usually crap, and has a very rare chance of casting something useful. Black Magic is always cast on enemies, white magic on allies), Edward/Gilbart’s Heal (use a potion on all party members) and Hide (hides the character off screen, and the command turns to Show (which returns him to the field) on subsequent turns. Automatic if he’s low on HP, but he can’t hide if all other party members are dead), Rosa’s Pray (small healing to all party members; has a chance of not working) and Aim (raises her accuracy to 255 and attack value by an unknown amount; not selectable if she does not have a Bow and Arrow equipped), Yang’s Power (do x2 damage on next turn) and Kick (attack all enemies) and Guard (x2 defense power), Palom and Porom’s Twin (casts either a weak version of Meteor or a weak version of Flare *forgot the names*; spell is chosen randomly and the command takes up BOTH characters turns), Palom’s Boast (raises his magic power; stackable), Porom’s Cry (lowers enemy accuracy), Cid’s Sight (basically a scan spell), Edge’s Throw (throws a throwable item from the inventory at the enemy for damage) and Steal (the obvious), and last but not least, FuSoYa’s Regan (restores HP to all party members on every one of FuSoYa’s turns). - Only two of these are in the demo.
  • Spell Specifics that are not handled in VX: I’m thinking things like Reflect and the like. Also, most spells need to be able to target everyone or just one person, and all spells can either work on enemies or allies. Also, curative spells need to be able to damage Zombies instead of healing them.
  • Special Animation and behavior for Confuse: When a character is confused, they step before the characters and turn to face them, as if they were part of the enemy ranks. The character will attack allies while helping enemies, using spells as well as physical attacks; I haven’t observed them using items to do so, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they could. I don’t think they use their character specific abilities.
  • Status Effects that Change Character Graphic: Status effects like Pig, Toad, and Mini change the character's appearance -- not just the character graphic, but the face sets as well.
  • Special Enemy Behaviors that Require Changing Their Graphic: A biggie for four boss fights; the Mist Dragon when it turns into mist — all attacks miss, and it counters with a powerful attack — Barbariccia when she turns into a twister — all attacks miss and she counters, but only Cain’s jump can bring her out of it — Cagnazzo’s various forms — he puts up a water wall as a defensive barrier and casts powerful water spells, but if he’s hit too many times with a strong thunder spell, he retreats to his shell and attempts to heal himself — and Rubicante’s cloak — when closed, he absorbs ALL elemental damage, even ice and water, but when open, he’s weak to ice and water again. All of these changes happen randomly (with the exception of Barbariccia coming out of her twister).
  • Changing Weapons in Battle: While in the item menu, by pressing up at the first slots, you can access the character’s weapon and shield (if they have a shield). This way, you can use the weapon as an item, or swap it out for another weapon.
  • Weapons are Non-consumable Items: Some weapons can be used in battle as items. They would not be consumed like items, and have various magic-like effects.
  • Arrows ARE consumable with each attack: Every time a character wielding a bow and arrow attacks, they consume one arrow. Obviously, this means they can equip more than one arrow at a time.
  • Special Background Behavior: This mostly pertains to the final boss fight. In said fight, the background is constantly moving to the left (with the exception of one part, which would mean that this would also require two backgrounds over each other) When Zeromus uses his main ball buster attack, the background speeds up, before switching direction to the right for a brief moment, and then returning to it’s normal behavior.
  • L+R = Run for your life!: Instead of having a run command, escaping from battle would be achieved by pressing the Q and W keys together.
  • More Paralax Backgrounds: Because the “inside” of airships and boats are only seen in cut scenes (with the exception of the Lunar Whale), instead of wasting tiles on them, said airships and boats could be made via paralax backgrounds. However, this would require there to be a second layer underneath to simulate movement of the clouds or water in the case of boats. Water would also need to be animated, but I’m not quite sure how that would work. :o
  • Airship Control for Cutscenes: I’m thinking mostly of the cut scenes involving Cain and getting the Earth Crystal. As soon as the airship appears on the world map for the first time, your characters are in it (this also applies to the hovercraft; more about that later), and the ship goes up in the air. As soon as it does that, a cut scene occurs. Once the cut scene ends, you have control of the airship. Likewise, once you get the Earth Crystal, as SOON as you board your airship, a cut scene occurs, and your party is taken to the Tower of Zot, off the airship. This would also apply to the airship being controlled during a cutscene when first arriving in and also fleeing from the Underground.
  • The Hovercraft: As mentioned above, as soon as the hovercraft rises out of the ground, your party is in it, and can move around the world map (as much as the hovercraft can). In addition, the hovercraft can move over shallows and flat land. -The Hovercraft is finished
  • Chocobos!: Chocobos need to be able to travel over flat land and forests. Once you dismount, they run away. -Chocobos work, but need to be made to run away after they're used, and need to be called after catching them in a forest.
  • Special Airship Tricks: There needs to be support for up to FOUR “airship” type vehicles. There are Black Chocobos that cannot travel over mountains and oceans (rivers are okay) and can only land in forests. When you dismount one, they stay there, but once you get on it again, it returns you to it’s forest of origin (requires a pathfinding script). The Enterprise is your standard airship with few exceptions. It needs to be able to go down into the Underground, but cannot pass over lava at first. After an event, it can also pick up the hovercraft and carry it around, but it cannot go down into the Underground with the hovercraft hooked to it. The Falcon is also a standard airship, that cannot pass over lava at first as well. It will also later have a giant drill hooked up to it’s nose after a cutscene to reopen the hole to the Underground. Afterwards it can go in and out of the Underground as it pleases. Last is The Big Whale, which is like a standard airship. However, it cannot go into the Underground; instead by activating the Crystal inside, it goes up into space and to the moon (where it can only land on passable terrain). Going up into space requires a special animation of it lifting up out of the screen, and coming back down onto the screen after a cutscene. It returns to the same place it lifted off from. - Everything but traveling between world maps is done, and this is only because not all of the world maps are finished.  Also, there are problems with how the chocobos work.
  • Menu System: The menu system that I have featured in the new demo is one I like very much, and I think it suits the graphic style.  However, it needs to be edited to work with a large party script, as well as the other features exclusive to FF4.
  • L and R Scroll through characters on the screen: Not a necessary feature, but very much FF4. Pressing Page Up or Page Down on a map screen will cycle through the characters you have in your party, letting you choose which one you want as your walking sprite. This would need to have support for cut scenes, as Cecil is always the main character.
  • Namingway!: Need a special Rename script that will let you choose which character to rename in your party.
  • Fat Chocobo: Need a storage/pick up script for items only.
  • Change how VX handles water autotiles: There are some points were you NEED to walk into the water in FF4, so the water autotiles need to be able to: 1.) be walkable, 2.) have a bush flag effect, 3.) can only be entered and exited via staircases. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. I ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY NEED THIS -omg thank you so much, Yeyinde <3
  • Map Location Name Pop-up: Like it says;  I'm not really worried about this right now.
  • Battle Algorithims: Again, like it says.  I also need level up data on the characters. This website might be of some help, but I utterly suck at math, so I couldn't say for sure.
  • What's in a Name?: Let the player be able to choose at the start of the game if s/he wants to use the original Japanese names of the characters, or the more familiar English names, as I can't decide which to use.  At least this way keeps me from getting lynched by the purists.

Download

New NEW Map Demo - 38.03 MB
-The demo is unencrypted.  The character's starting position is set to the world map, so older machines may experience trouble loading up at first.  The Overworld towns are linked from the world map.  If you want to see the underground maps in game, you'll need to set the starting position yourself.  Most all secret areas are complete, with the exception of areas that require special switches controlled by NPCs, like Toria pub and treasury.  They're still THERE, you just can't access them by normal means.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!! Not all of the scripts are working in the demo.  In fact, it's more likely to crash if you go into a battle or bring up the menu.  I am in DESPERATE need of someone to make the scripts cooperate with one another.

The Fine Print
Hey, guess what?  I don't own Final Fantasy IV, or anything having to do with it, other than the work I'm doing on this project.  So, that being said, if I ever get a cease and desist order, I don't have much of a choice but to comply.  I don't see that happening because I'm not selling it, but you never know how anal Squeenix can be.  That being said, if you like Final Fantasy IV, GO BUY IT!  It's available on Playstation, Gameboy Advance, Super Nintendo, Wonderswan Color, and Nintendo DS.

Yeah, I think that for some reason size = ?2? and lower makes unexpectedly gigantic for no apparent reason. Oddly enough, it works perfectly well in the preview - even the post system wants to trick you at RMRK.

Also, your banner at the top of the post is wicked.

I actually had the font size at four, but when I posted it turned to size 40. O.o;

And I'm glad you liked the banner.  Took awhile to clean up the images. <3


EDIT: The board doesn't seem to like Japanese characters either... :o

Lame. I was wondering why the Japanese name of the character was ???•????.

It might just be the font - try one of the other fonts maybe.

I think I may be able to make the CMS with 5 people.

So...
Spoiler for Support for Five Party Members::
Another major thing, as there can be up to five characters in your party at any time in FF4.

and
 
Spoiler for
Menu System: Obviously just as important as the battle system.
:
I would like it to look like it does in FF4 GBA, but also have the transparency that the default VX menu uses. Commands are (in this order) Item, Magic, Equipment, Status, Order (change the placement of a character), Row (change how the rows are; two in front three in back or three in front two in back), Config (this would primarily be used to set up the battle system more than anything else; dunno if I even want it in there), and Save. The item menu is restricted to 48 items only, and has an option to sort items as well as throw them out (key items cannot be discarded). In the magic menu, if someone cannot use magic, it brings up the window, but has the words “Cannot use Magic” in the menu instead of a magic list. In the Equipment window, you can either equip a character manually or choose best equip to do it automatically. Each character has a dominant hand (some can use both hands) and can only equip weapons on that dominant hand. Shields and bows go on the non-dominant hand. Of course, if I decide to use Decant abilities, I’ll probably want to use a modified version of the DS menu instead.

I love FF4, and it was the first final fantasy I ever played. I want to see this finished. So I'll help all I can... but don't rely on my. I'm very unreliable. My skillz as a scripter, if rated from a scale of 1-100 would about 1, or 2. I know some basic commands, and I've made some CMS's before.

so... OFF I GO! *zoom*

EDIT: Actually, it seems like someone's working on the battle system, possibly including the party member support.  I'm not sure, but BoE, you might want to do the menu first if you want.

I'd probably be able to do some of the scripting necessary. I wouldn't want to take any major scripting projects, but if you gave me a mockup/screenshot of the menu you want I would probably be able to cook something up for that. I need to do a project for Wednesday though, so I don't know when I would be able to get around to it. Also, for the airship cutscene there might be a solution with minor-no scripting involved. I don't know if there is an event command that will dispose of the airship neatly - I'd assume not. But the script command: 

    $game_map.airship.transparent = true / false

ought to make it transparent - though it might not get rid of the shadow. I'll look into it tomorrow.

You should be able to work with that though - at least for now. Getting rid of the Shadow might require some scripting in the editor.

Thank you, guys. <3

Right now, this is starting out as a remake.  I am open to suggestions on things to add to it, but for now, it's a straight up recreation, as I've gotten some pretty lame ideas (Chocobo racing? Oh hell no; I can't imagine finding someone to program THAT).  If I'm lucky and this is successful, I'll do my very best to make a sequel -- perhaps if I'm EXTREMELY lucky, I'll be able to make THE sequel, FF4: After, which would be great for people that don't understand Japanese/don't have a Japanese cellphone (are there even cellphone emulators?  Hmm...).

But, yes; for now, I'm just remaking the original. :P

Cecil needs to be more Cecil-ized though, but I guess you're planning on making sprite-edits sooner or later. :)

Well my friend, here it is, I've come up with a battle system and menu system, I'm pretty sure it's pretty plug'n play, but don't hold me to it.
Anyways, here we go!

FFIV Battle System and Menu System!  80-85% complete
Other Scripts that were built upon/modified or just plain used:
RPG Tankentai Sideview Battle System
Dargor's Party Changer modified by me
STR33 Sideview ATB addon

There are others I was experimenting with under the main process, but ofc they're under the main process and NOT used

Progress
Spoiler for:
_____Menu_____
60-75% Complete
All Graphical looks have been completed
_____Battle____
Battlestyle Complete
Battler Animations
-Jump Animations
-Very basic Summons events (Emphasis on VERY BASIC lol)
-ActorCommand Window commands were remodeled to only show the
--correct amount of commands, doesn't show unused ones.
---Kain has the "Jump" ability which calls the Jump skill if the actor class
---- equals the dragoon class, DO NOT CHANGE CLASS ORDERS, leave   
---- DRG as class ID 02
-Flee system works, no guage seen

Needs to be done/I need help with
Spoiler for:
____Menu___
-All custom commands added but some do not work ofc
--Form, Custom, and Change
---These commands are for Changing party members, changing party
---member positions, and changing configuartions and looks
---Party Changer works, but it's nothing like the FFIV version.
-Pointers/Cursors (I just don't know how)
-A party changer like the FFIV one lol
____Battle System____
-The target_enemy def needs to be changed to be able to target
--any player character on the field, I believe that's accomplished
--by basically "merging" for lack of a better word, the two defs
--target_enemy and target_actor defs
-I need a completely different way to do the target window, the one
-- that is in place now is lame as hell, right now it calls a completely
--new target window on top of the one that is there at the beginning
--of the battle, so that one updates, but the main one doesn't and
--doesn't show enemy death.
Stuff I can figure out-
Spoiler for:
-Battlebacks, that's not hard, I'm sure anyone could do it
Stuff I can't do/Need serious explainations and stuff about-
Spoiler for:
-Centering Texts vertically and horizontally
--It looks goofy as hell with 2 or 3 actor commands and the window is
--ginormous.
___Need Huge help/explanations with___
-Adding pointer cursors and stuff
--I just really don't understand it I guess, if anyone could either give me
--a really specific example/explain how to make them, please help a
--brotha out. lol. I love to learn new stuff if that makes a difference lo
Demo Download!
Installation instructions-
Spoiler for:
(the slightly tricky party)
Copy everything above the "Main" process but below the "Materials" section, guess it wasn't that tricky lol.  Copy all the graphics in the Graphics, every folder, not just the system folder.

--Ok, here's the pain in the ass, I suck at the whole menu actor face drawing deal, so as you very well might notice, the faces are positioned differently on FFfaces3.png face sheets. Pain but only way I knew to do it(HELP ME FIX IT LOL)--

Here we are, there it is, hope you have fun with the little demo I've prepared for you, leave me feedback, tell me how to do shit better, please lol

It's looking great so far, I love how you are remaking this classic. However my problem with the demo is that your using those old SNES sprites. I hope you won't continue this trend into the final release. I have several FF4 sprites I've made VX style that you can use (most of them were made in the character generator but the recolors were done myself, the Kain sprite came from here).

If you still need help on battlebacks I have a script for it that I'm using in my own personal project. It's an area-based battleback system (you can assign a battleback to an area in the script). Here's the script just in case you decide to use it (credits to Diakonos).

lol I just ripped those sprites because I had nothing else and I'm not so good at making them lol.  Awesome job! on the sprites you've made sir, they will DEFINITELY be using them in my next release of the script.  Just a FYI, Zed got back into WoW so I've kinda lost my ambition in working on this, if anyone wants to pick it up and finish'er up, go right ahead. I'm kinda a newb at scripting in general, it does the job, but I figured out that it crashes the game when you tell someone to attack but the previous player kills the mob you're attacking.

aww, I liked Atemu. I don't know why people started disliking her. Was it something in IRC?

Hmph, oh well.  Could've been cool.  I know nothing about Asch, hence I'm semi-new to the scene :P

I haven't seen Asch/Atemu post on this forum for ages.

Dare I say, thank Christ for that.

Wow, gee, thanks for posting that in my own private forum.  You're a regular ray of sunshine.

I haven't been around because I've been ridiculously busy with school, and I didn't even realize people were still showing an interest in this project.  Zedane, I'll take a look and your progress; if you're still around and wish to continue, I'd appreciate the help.

Going to take it that this is in the dust as nothing has happened. Guess I don't need to clean everything up and finish it.  Anyways, was fun making the rough draft.  Maybe next time

I'm volunteering to pick this project up and do what I can for it. It's good stuff, I'd hate to see it die like this.

Okay, since my post yesterday was aparently munched...

I do intend to work on this eventually.  Real life is just more important at the moment.  I would appreciate it if people did not "pick this up" without my permission.

My apologies, I did not intend to make it sound as if I was going to continue anyone's project without their permission. Consider my previous post withdrawn.

I managed to get the newest version of the game off of my main PC, so I figured I'd put up an update on what is finished.

Maps
  • Baron Castle
  • Baron Town
  • Mist Cave
  • Mist
  • Kaipo
  • Fabul
  • Mysida
  • Toria Castle
  • Toria Town
  • Mythril
  • Dwarf Castle
  • Kokkol's Smithy
  • Tomra
  • World Map -- Tower of Babil, previously missing, has been added.
  • Agart -- missing telescope has been added.
  • Damcyan
  • Eblan
  • All chocobo forests
  • Water Cavern
  • Antlion's Nest
  • Mount Hobs
  • Mount Ordeals
  • All crystal rooms that were missing are finished
Scripts
  • Walk on water
  • Vehicle system half complete
What needs to be done:
Map
  • Underground world map
  • Moon world map
  • Feymarsh
  • Sylph's Cave
  • Baron water way
  • Sealed cavern
  • Tower of Zot
  • Tower of Babil
  • Magnetic cavern
  • Moon's Core
  • Bahamut's Cave
  • Namingway Cavern
I plan on working with scripts at the moment to try and at least get a skeleton of the battle system and menu screen up.  Anyone that signs up to do scripts from this point on will need to work with that to prevent compatibility problems.

Thanks for keeping an eye on this for so long guys.  Expect a new download in the future.

I was looking at the first post and saw this:

What Needs to be Done

    * Underworld and Moon maps.
    * Character graphics.
    * Rest of the maps.
    * Of course, eventing and story.

Do you still need the VX character graphics for the characters, or for other characters?

I actually found some character graphics, but I'm going to need different poses, mostly for the battle system.  Not entirely worried about this yet, but I'll need it in the future.

Oh, okay :)

I found a few FFIV characters in VX, just thought I should share ^.^

I am missing a few: Edward, Palom, Porom, and Fusoya.  If you have them, that'd be helpful.

Also, proof I'm still working on this:

Concerning the cure spells causing damage to undead, you could set a new attribute- say, "anti-undead"- and assign it to all cure spells. Then you assign the element efficiency of "anti-undead" on your undeads to "F". This way, the cure to the party heals HP and the cures to undead cause HP loss. I'm using a different system in my own project, since I chose not to use a targeting script like the one you have, but I just tested it out and it seems to work. Whatcha think?

I wasn't aware that VX allowed absorption of spells like that.  I'll have to try it.
