DOWNLOAD - Final Fantasy VI: General Leo Edition Hack v2.1

Gentle Reader,

Version 2.1 of the General Leo Edition hack is here!  For those already playing Version 2.0, take heart:  this patch only introduces minor changes and improvements to areas such as:  Esper spell lists and learn rates; a handful of item stats, shop contents, and treasure chests; tweaks to a few townsperson sprites and palettes; the correction of some typographical errors; and, similar miscellany.

You should be able to transition from 2.0 to 2.1 without too much trouble if you wish to.  However, this may cause some disruption to what spells your characters are learning, due to the changes to some of the Espers.  I would probably suggest continuing with 2.0, as you are unlikely to really notice any changes anyway.  Story events and the ending are unchanged.

As always, see the ReadMe for details, and thank you for playing!

Ever Yours,


  1. Mwa, ha, hah! At last! Version 2.1 is a reality...and (if all goes according to plan) starting Monday, February the 3rd, I shall also begin my Let's Play (My Way) of this lovely little hack. With any luck, not only will it attract more attention to this deserving piece of fanwork, it will also give me the patience to wait for FFX/X2 HD to come out in mid-March. But nevermind that, I have an excellent hack to play through! For YouTube! I hope my friends will be wanting to try it as they see me play it...or even join em for co-commentary, who knows? We'll see what happens. Either way, I'm very excited to finally get my chance to LP another good ROMhack. Good times ahead!

    1. Hee hee, glad you're so excited! ^_^

    2. Yes, I am excited! And glad to finally have this LP off the ground. I hope that you will enjoy my playthrough, sir! ^_^ And that it will do your hack justice...

    I just downloaded your latest version, and promptly found a HEADERED U.S. Rom (I had the wrong one when I tried with an earlier version) but I'm still having trouble. I start a new game, it gives me the first big intro line about the destruction of magic, and then the rest of the intro text gets garbled and mixed with the lines that Biggs and Wedge say at the cliff side. When I get to the first fight in Narshe the screen stays black instead of getting into the fight.

    Oh, also, on start up it gives me the same "checksum error" I always get and I just press ignore lol

  4. I just stumbled across your blog, and your wonderful Golbez & General Leo hacks. I grew up with these games too, and even made my own Golbez & Leo hacks in college... but nowhere near as elaborate as these. You've given me a reason to revisit these great classics, now with their best and most complex characters at the forefront. Your work is greatly appreciated!!


  5. Can't wait to start this one now that I'm finished with FFIV Golbez !
