Final Fantasy VI: Revised Old Style Edition is a thorough and nostalgic revision of the text and presentation of Final Fantasy VI for SNES.
The purpose of the hack is to bring FF6's superficial elements as close as possible to the standard set by FFOrigins and FF6's immediate successors, while preserving the difficulty of the game's 1994 North American version as designed.
Like several hacks of its kind currently available, FF6:ROSE includes bugfixes, decensored graphics, quality-of-life enhancements, and a revised script based on multiple translation sources, both official (Woolsey, Slattery) and unofficial (KWhazit, Clyde Mandelin, Lina Darkstar, et al.).
In addition, FF6:ROSE is distinguished by two primary advancements:
Other improvements introduced in this hack:
FF6:ROSE is built on a modified version of C. V. Reynolds' Multi-Bugfix compilation patch. While a large number of bugs are fixed, all intentional design choices (including poor ones) related to the core RPG mechanics of the original N.A. SNES version are retained.
The font used for the revised text is based exclusively on the original SNES font, adapted as necessary to meet space requirements.
FF6:ROSE is built on the work of many, many FF6 fans and hackers. See the Readme file for a detailed list of features and full credits.
Semi-intelligible annotations for the revised dialog script can be found here.
