I'm planning on creating a Final Fantasy Mod (including games: 1(Nes) 2, 3, 5 Mystic Quest(SNES), 7, 8, 9, Tactics (PSX), and 10 (PS2).

My plans are:

-First Names
-Last Names
-Clan Names (Still waiting for excat file that the names are programmed in, to save me a lot of time looking through the hex, so I can edit them all to either A) FF Town/Country Names or B) Mixture Town/Organizaitons, I'm thinking more A though.
-Equipment (and Stats)
-Units (More FF Style Names)

And if possible (thought I'm going to have to talk with Tertsi about the possiblity of changing:
-Spells
-Unit Graphics

This will be my update thread, and I won't release anything for it, until its 100% Complete.

What are you thoughts for this? (I used Final Fantasy, because very popular, and enough games to collect a lot of names, items, etc..)

It indeed might cause legal trouble so unfortunately we can't help you in any way with that mod unless you don't use any copyrighted material which you don't own in the modification.

All I planned on using was the names really (not like graphics or anything), so I'm pretty sure that wouldn't be copyright breach. You can't really copyright a name can you? Ex. Figaro, while a town in FF3, it could easily be a town in Texas. So can't really copyright that. Same with names (and it wouldn't be excat combo's of names, cause First/Last Seperate).


Do you think these would be ok? If not I'll just do a different mod, because I'm really wanting to get in and modify the Clan Names, and possibly mess around with the graphics. (Would be much easier knowning which files I would need to look at).

Thanks! Smile

hmm, well, names are fine, but if trademarked you cant say that theyre original, and have to give square enix credit in credits or whatever.

True they wouldn't really be original. I had planned on giving credit. It seems to many issues. I suppose I'll think of something more original, maybe a community based mod. Where people each give me some input into Clan Names (maybe like 5 each, or something), I'll try and think of something original and fun. Smile


EDIT: Thinking about it, I don't really see this being a problem. Because if you look at games such as the Civilization Series. People make scenarios for all these games based on books, movies, and other games (I've seen some Lord of the Rings, Couple of Books, etc...) and there has been no problem. So I think I might go ahead and try this, and just give Square-Enix credit. And just require people to request from me if Tertsi would rather not have on forums. (Mostly for myself, since I'm a pretty big FF player). Just have yet to find where the Clan Names are stored in all the code Sad.

Names like Cloud and Final Fantasy are definitely trademarked, so those you wouldn't be able to use whether you give credit or not without a permission. However if you figure out what names are trademarked and don't include those I might be able to help.

Ok, I think I'll abandon the Final Fantasy one then, and do a community mod.

Going to start a new thread about it, so hopefully help can be given now Tertsi. (And get the community involved). Smile
