First and foremost I'm coming out of retirement.  So yay me.  But, I need some serious help and such on this project.  I'm rusty and I've forgotten things, plus there is so much that is new with the FF6 hacking scene that I need a serious refresher.  LOL

Ok so I came up with this idea about 7 years ago or so and around 2012 I started working on it. I spent about a year doing it part time here and there.  I am keeping it secret for a variety of reasons, first and foremost to surprise the community and secondly so I won't get a C&D.  This is why I'll be generic until I can form a team.  I originally had on the team; Gi Nattak, Madsiur, assassin (?), and someone who's name escapes me doing the character graphics last time but I have no idea what their availability is now so I'll just put this out there and see who's available.  I need 2~3 people who's got mad skills hacking FF6 for the items listed under the progress %'s.  
 
Progress:
Dialogue: 10%
Characters: 75%
Enemies: 90%
Graphics: 75%
Items: 90%
Spells: 5%
Music: 95%
Overworld: 95%
Maps: 0%
Events: 0%
Assembly: 10%
Menus: 0%
Miscellaneous: 10%
-------------------------------
Overall: 43%

So here's how I breakdown what is needed...
 
Story/Dialogue text <-- Doing most of this myself but will need some assistance with proofreading it and formatting.
 
Characters (data) <-- I'll do this.
 
Monsters (graphics and data) <-- Almost done, but could use some help here with reducing the colors down to 16 on some of my sprites so that they don't look like crap.  Oh and some AI/dialogue.
 
Dialogue font <-- Done.
 
Menu font <-- Would love to have someone add in the font changer menu...  Otherwise I'll finish out the remaining tiles.
 
Items <-- I'll do this.
 
Item descriptions <-- I'll do this.
 
Spells <-- Could use some help creating some custom spells.
 
Character EXP, HP/MP growth <-- I'll do this.
 
Misc Text <-- Funny thing, I cannot remember what this is...  LOL!  
 
Title screen <-- Would love to have someone skip the white Final Fantasy III title and following intro to go straight to the New Game / Load 
Game screen after my splash screen.  I believe I was going back and forth with assassin on this but I cannot really remember...you know...getting old and such.
 
Intro <-- Done.
 
Music: <-- Thanks Mike!  I need some more songs!  Wink
 
Graphics <-- Desperately need someone to finish the character sprites, start on NPC sprites, and such.
 
Overworld <-- I'll do this but will need some help with overworld events and how to do a day/night cycle.
 
Maps & Events <-- This is where I need the most help.  I just cannot seem to understand how to create and draw area/dungeon maps, I quite literally do not have the skills and patience to do this.  And I have zero experience with events for FF6.  Only FF4 so I need a ton of help here, unless there is a easy to use event editor out now?
 
Menu changes <-- Need someone to help me design my menus.  

Assembly <-- I have some things like the day/night cycle, the font switcher menu, music player, and other changes I'd like to see if they can be made.

I got mad skills hacking FF6 and I got mad's FF6 hacking skills!

Ok for ASM, but if you can separate your project in smaller ASM tasks I could tackle as many I want and leave the door open to another ASM guy. For events, I can answer your questions and show you stuff but I don't apply for event coding monkey specifically Tongue

Rise from your grave, project! Ready and willing to do more songs to complete the soundtrack. Wink Just need quality midis... Perhaps once Jackimus returns he might be willing to bang out some that we do not have midis of, as he can make his own, unlike me lol. Also as I said in the email I'm happy to assist with event editing questions/teaching, and am willing to do some hands on event work too as time/work permits. Too bad Zone Doctor is not reliable and crashy/buggy, I think you'd have found event editing much simpler with it's event editor that is like Temporal Flux's... but alas the utility is not to be trusted in regards to event editing imo.

After spending so much time with my project I must admit I'm a bit burned out and liking not working on anything atm, but perhaps spending time on another project will bring back some of that energy, and this project is definitely worthy and I was greatly enjoying the progress that was made a long while back.


We are born, live, die and then do the same thing over again.

You do have mad hacking skills and such!  :Laugh I sent a PM on my forum replying to your post.  Since it has sensitive information regarding my hack I won't post it here.   Shine

Thanks Mike.  I'd be grateful for any help and training you can provide.  I've got a lot to learn--and in some cases relearn.  It is amazing how much you forget when you completely disconnect...

Ok I've got most of the preliminary enemy sprites figured out but my god I suck at graphics.  Reducing the # of colors down to 16 in GIMP really screws up some of these...  

Other than that I need to figure out who did my previous character sprites so I can see if they are still available--but I cannot remember who that was.  

Oh, and changed the %'s.

Updated some %'s.

I may have someone rewrite the dialogue, and that someone is a publisher writer/author.  I'll confirm if I was able to get them onboard.  Smile

Scratch that.  The author has too many current projects so I'll be rewriting it myself.  Smile

Did some work on the dialogue this past weekend and also tweaked some of the items and descriptions again. As soon as I solve my magic spell menu problem I'll knock out those spells like clockwork.
