Introduction

------------

Back when Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy III US) was released the game was 

heavily toned down, censoring graphics and the like. When it was re-released

for the Playstation, the graphics were uncensored but toned down script remained.

Then came Final Fantasy VI Advance with a newer (though some consider drier) 

translation, but the color palette and music were altered for the handheld console. 

Others have made re-translations, such as the great work by RPGOne,

Lina Darkstar, and Kwhazit.  



Now this is Final Fantasy VI: Ted Woolsey Uncensored Editon. The goal was to 

make the SNES version uncut and to clean up the script but keep the nuance

used by Woolsey in the original game's release. Using the original Woolsey script 

as a basis to analyze, the entire game was looked through, line by line, using

FFVI Advance, RPGOne, and Lina Darkstar to accomplish this. Recently, the game's

script was also heavily analyzed by Kwhazit and Mato (Legends of Localization).

With these newer and more heavily detailed looks into the game, the script was

again updated to provide a much more accurate version while still remaining true

to the original game's release. 

 

Various tools and patches were also used to uncensor the graphics, 

restore Character Class names, extend spell names, rename monsters and items, 

and make hopefully the version of Final Fantasy VI that everyone will play.



Any bug fixes that were used were chosen not for any balance changes, but

to fix persistant issues in the game, as to not change the experience of

the original too much. 



Installation

------------



Use a clean, unheadered Final Fantasy III (v1.0) (U) ROM and whatever patching program you 

feel comfortable using to patch the ROM (I prefer Lunar IPS). I cannot tell you where

to get a ROM. If you are using a previous version of the Ted Woolsey Uncensored Edition,

do NOT patch the new patch over your ROM as it may corrupt the game. Always use a CLEAN,

unheadered ROM with the patch. These patches are complete patches. There is NO need to 

patch one on top of the other. Simply choose ONE and patch a clean unheadered ROM. 



-Patches included:

	-Final Fantasy VI (TWUE).ips - Base version with original Opera. Least amount of bug fixes.

	-Final Fantasy VI (TWUE) + Updated Opera.ips - Base version with modern Opera scene.

	-Final Fantasy VI (TWUE) + Bug Fixes.ips - A large number of bugfixes were added fix the worst

		bugs in the game while keeping in line with the what TWUE set out to do. 

	-Final Fantasy VI (TWUE) + Bug Fixes & Updated Opera.ips - Same as bug fixes with new Opera

	-Final Fantasy VI (TWUE) + Bug Fixes & Add-Ons.ips - In addition to bugfixes, slight tweaks that 

		were worthwhile were added that still do not take away from the original experience.

	-Final Fantasy VI (TWUE) + Bug Fixes, Updated Opera, & Add-Ons.ips - All bugfixes like before,

		the updated and newer Opera, and the worthwhile Add-Ons.

		



 * The Bug Fixes that were added to TWUE were added because they fix some of the worst bugs 

in the original game. The main reason for this is that some are game breaking (Sketch Bug), 

and others can remove things they aren't suppossed to (like Zombie/Tapir). Others include fixing

graphical errors (Banon Riding, Reflect barrier, etc) and some restore content that should

have been there in the first place (Rage restoration, Phantom Train chests, Elemental Display).

Fixes that were not added were either because they remove exploits (like Vanish/Doom),

they are too funny not to witness (Psycho Cyan) or they might have compatibility issues with other

patches already included (see Compatibility document made by Chronosplit). For all of the details

about each of the bug fixes, see the Bug Fixes Added Compendium document. 

It's recommended to use patches with bugfixes added, but the choice is yours.



** The Updated Opera has to do with the differences in translation for the actual Opera itself.

Some may prefer the original Woolsey version (SNES, PSX) of the Opera, and some prefer the newer 

Slattery version (present in GBA/Mobile/Steam). The newer translation is better timed with the

music ("you're the stars" vs. "you're the starlight") and is currently used in live performances 

by Square themselves. Once again, the choice is yours. 

Special Thanks to Spooniest and vivify93 for helping make sure it's synced properly. 



*** The Add-Ons patches already include the Bug Fixes, but also adds tweaks that bring an

overall complete experience. These include the Blitz screen (which adds the names of the 

Blitz commands to the menu in addition to the button inputs), the Rewards Display (will

tell you what you can win at the Colosseum before betting), Y Equip Relics (gives an added

function to switch from equiping weapons and armor to equip Relics by pressing Y), and 

the Mini Maps Upgrade (which upgrades the mini map to show the mountain ranges as well).

The choice to have this with or without the Updated Opera is once again yours.



Changes made in the bug fixes patch are labled with a * in the patches used section. Also,

an additional list has been compiled to offer compatibility with the numerous patches

available for Final Fantasy VI and is included with the download. This was done to 

give users options on what they want added in addition to what is already fixed.  For a 

comprehensive look into what bugfixes are included, as well as what they do, see the

Bug Fixes Used Compendium document. 



****Note about Music Player. There are four seperate patches included. They can be 

applied after patching with a TWUE patch. Config 1 removes Mono from the Config menu

in place of the player. Config 2 uses a blank space in the Config Menu. Main Menu A modifies

the main menu to utilize it, and is only compatible with the bug fix patches. Main Menu B is

the older version of the patch and is not compatible with the bug fix patches due to the game

clock being modified. Config 1 and 2 are not compatible with ZSNES but are with

current and more accurate emulators, such as SNES9x, Higan/bsnes, and real hardware. 



Since there are a lot of choices to be made with all of the patches in this package, my

recommendation is to simply use the TWUE+Bugfixes, Updated Opera, & Add-Ons. Then patch

with the Music Player and it's optional fixes if you so desire (I prefer Config 2). 

It's completely up to you. Enjoy!
