DOWNLOAD - Final Fantasy VI: General Leo Edition Hack v1.1

Gentle Reader,

The first batch of players of the hack found a variety of bugs both large and small.  This new patch corrects those mistakes without changing any of the other significant content of the patch.

Thanks again to everyone who's tried it out!

  1. Just a heads up, I just started this up and went to use Heal Force in the Magitek armor, and found that it instantly targeted all enemies. I noticed it is now in the place of Bioblast, and seems to have taken on BioBlasts targeting. However, it still has Heal Force's healing effect.

  2. Also found a dialogue bug, when Leo is talking to Kefka in the Imperial Camp he says "Don't be pompous! And DON'Tforget that they are PEOPLE, just like you and me." There is a space missing between DON'T and forget.

  3. I sent you a PM over YouTube on a few things (observations, a potential bug, a few ideas for the Retainer Rage since you asked, maybe one or two other things), and I just want to drop a comment here to make sure you got that PM.

  4. Hi, have a question about the ROM that should be patched. I have the unheadered FF 3 US v1.1 rom with CRC C0FA0464. Even if I put in a header into this rom, the CRC stays the same and doesn't match to the one you have in the readme file. I don't believe there are other versions or variants of the 1.1 rom. With that said, the ROM you mentioned in the file, is that an unaltered good dump? Or has it been altered?

    1. Hi! I actually used the 1.1 headered ROM, not the unheadered. That is probably the cause of your trouble. I also tried the hack with the headered 1.0 and it worked OK, at least so far as I tested it. Near as I can tell, my initial ROM and all test ROMs that I tried were unaltered.

    Couple of bug reports! Just got to the end of Thamasa, where shit goes down. When the Espers first escape, and the bridge scene is playing, I am in a fight as terra, she is off screen and the passing Espers fire off odd attacks. Like magitek missles. Similar situation when Kefka taunts them, except I'm controlling Kefka fighting against the Ifrit clone. When te party groups up again, and Leo comes on stage, everyone keeps calling him General Shadow, and that stays as his name from then on, even into battles. He also has throw as his skill. Keeping a save right before this part for the eventual patch, and continuing on. I will update with anything new I find

    1. jackmerrius: You are the first to report these bugs and I frankly cannot explain them. It sounds like the effects that should be implemented by the hack are only halfway implemented in your copy. That suggests to me that you are using a version of the ROM that is not compatible with the patch. Feel free to e-mail me directly and I will see if I can assist. Thanks!

      Also, didnt think about it until now but I was playing with another mod installed, Once Again, which combines a lot of other minor mods together. I found a version of 1.1 so I will try a clean install of JUST General Leo mod and see how it goes

    Also, the color scheme for Leo as the front character walking around is black armor with gray hair, and honestly, it looks badass. Just sayin'. I know green is his thing, but... Badass in black? Who's with me on this one? :D

  7. Alright, I'm at a total loss, I'm up to the WoR, I feel like I've tried betting everything at the Coliseum to get Leo, can you please let me know how you get him in WoR? Thanks!

    1. Anonymous: I don't want to post spoilers on the blog, but feel free to e-mail me directly if you'd like some clues on how to find him. Thanks!

    2. Ironically, I figured out how to do it minutes after posting the comment, haha. I think that there actually might be a bug regarding it...

  8. Some minor bugs:

    Dialogue isn't always working.

    After Locke/Relm/Strago/Terra return to Thamasa, Locke says "General Leo" not using the name I gave him (Dwight).

    1. Good catch! I will fix it. Let me know if you find any others.

  9. Another error, not dialogue...

    on the Floating Continent, the character in the 4th position of your party is replaced after the event with Imperial Trooper/Celes/Kefka/Gestahl... and their equipment is gone as well. So people will need to unequip that member.

    1. Jesse, I am not able to duplicate the bug. What "should" happen is that, if Celes was not already in your group, she overwrites the 4th character for the remainder of the Floating Continent scene. Would you be willing to send me a save state of the bug so that I can investigate? Thanks!

    2. What happened after I actually went through was that Celes was in the menu screen but in battle Edgar would still be in battles, Celes would not be in battle nor would she get EXP.

    Btw, I know its off topic, but is there an alternate download site for your Golbez hack? I'd love to try it out, but nothing I'm downloading from romhacking.net is unpacking from the zip file for some reason

    1. Yes, absolutely! In addition to the download from Romhacking.net, I also independently host the files on Mediafire, as a backup. There is a download link on this page:
