Thank you, Matt. This is very helpful.

I was going to do a snap update because of the two menu text issues, but then I saw your post growing...

I'm decently concerned about the rate of errors you are catching, so I will probably take a little more time and go over things some more as well.

Are you referring to the use of "you" instead of "ye"? Believe it or not, I actually went back and forth on this. Not sure why I landed on "you", but I would agree it's the wrong call.

I feel like "Who among you released this poison!?" fits Cyan's character the best.


"I'll kill someone you love, because he killed someone I love." Profound? Or Psychotic? Take your pick.

Actually, I meant to point out that it should probably be "spilt the poison" and not "split the poison". Scorcher's suggestion would also work nicely.

Also, found some more
*At the banquet after you ask the first question, when Gestahl asks if you have another question to ask, the second option is just an empty space with a period.
*Strago when the Floating Continent appears: "If the three were ever moved out of6+ their perfect alignment, the resulting imbalance would..."
*As Celes prepares to jump off the cliff at the start of the WOR, there's a weird paragraph spacing in the textbox.
*"Gerad" before fighting the tentacles: "What are standing around for, Celes!? Give me a hand!"

I don't really know if you are still updating this patch but there is a typo right at the beginning of the game when you first meet locke with the Old Man. The Old Man says "The city guard is pursuing Miss Terra through the mines as we we speak." I have never played FF6 before and I figured giving your compilation of hacks a go since it seemed the most at the core of the experience. Hoping to help if I can, with anything else that I catch!

Edit 1: To add to one of Matt's earlier posts, when Terra learns Poisona, the battle text does read Poison as well

Okay, time for an update!

Per everyone's feedback and some additional review, the hack has been updated to version 1.02. (See the OP.)
  • Fixed menu text corruption in 2x Spritzer encounter during opening sequence.
  • Fixed Poisona spell label in battle (large font).
  • Updated color-coded MP digits to fix occasional glitch on Auto-Shell/Auto-Protect activation.
  • Fixed typos in 13 field dialog captions.
  • Made minor revisions to 41 field dialog captions.
  • Fixed typos in 2 battle dialog captions.
  • Made minor revisions to 3 battle dialog captions.
Hopefully this covers most of the remaining dialog typos, though I think it's clear that I've become more than a little blind to them with this project.
Keep 'em coming if you find any.

Hi Scorcher, thanks for the idea.
My concern with this is that the syllable count is starting to drive up a bit, and I think Cyan's unusual state of mind in this particular scene is going to favor as little elegance as possible. (It's always tough to hit that sweet spot between "fleshed-out" and "punchy.")

Now I know why. "Which of ____...?" takes the oblique case (e. g. "Which of them...?"), and the archaic second person plural oblique pronoun, apparently, is "you" exclusively.
So, "you" will stay for now.

I see. Strange, I must have fixed that a while ago and forgot about it, because none of my project materials have that typo. Confused

Thanks Frucella, and good timing -- your correction is in v1.02. Hello I appreciate your interest in this hack and the feedback!

I don't know if you got this one in the 1.02 update.

Yep, managed to spot that one for v1.02. Victory

Okay.

I'm still on 1.01 because I'm playing on an SNES Classic and updating means deleting and replacing the ROM on Hakchi. I don't want to end up losing my save file when I'm so close to the end, so if I catch anything else you've already fixed, don't pay it any mind.

Anyway, very close to Kefka, but caught one more.
*A bit of an uneven text break and a weird use of ~ when the Gold Dragon is charging for Thundaga.

Thanks, this is in v1.02.

The tilda is what I used to mark unused captions for my own benefit, but it looks like I have been relying on slightly inaccurate information >_<
