breaktemp Hack Name: GBATemp Legend II

Hack of: Final Fantasy Legend II [GB]

Introduction:
Hello everyone, Break here with the release of "GBATemp Legend II".
Final Fantasy Legend II was the game that got me into RPGs, growing up.
It also made me a fan of the SaGa-series...the music and the interesting stories kept me hooked.
Over the past year or so, I have become aware of speedrunning.
And have watched a few submissions for Final Fantasy Legend II.
While I did learn a lot from watching these vidoes and replaying the game myself.
I felt that it could be a bit more fun...with a few tweaks.
So I immediately started on a quest to learn how to hack this game.
However...with no editing tools available,
I soon found out that I had to learn how to "Hex-Edit"
In order to make changes to the game.
It was a challenge to learn how to Hex-Edit,
But luckily I ran across some very patient and friendly users
Who had the knowledge and passion for SaGa-games
And very very cool about helping study and learn how to tackle this game.
After Hex-Editing and testing the gameplay a few times
I became satisfied with what my project and am ready to share it with the world.
It sure has been a journey from January 2019 ~ August 2019
But completed, I hope other RPG fans can enjoy this hack !

It is the same as the unmodified Final Fantasy Legend II.
