PostSubject: It's sad..   Sun Dec 18, 2011 6:13 pm

I just read about the latest events, and that this game isn't hosted anymore.. I have to admit, it is rather sad, and also upsetting.

True, I left this community without much of a notice, and I do apologize for that. There have been other things on my mind, and I have focused on different types of games for this past time. However, knowing what happened to this game still affects me, since I connect many good memories with it. I have also learned that my work as a programmer has rarely been so appreciated as it was here, and as such it also hurts to know it's all lost now.

There seems to be ongoing efforts to bring this game back, by a complete remake no less. I appreciate that. On the other hand, there was such a huge amount of artwork that is now inaccessible. As bad as it sounds, I do not see much hope. Final Fantasy Legacy was a game for fans, and I highly doubt that a remake without FF would become nearly as popular.

I'm not sure what to say from here. FFL was something I was proud of, a very enjoyable game, possibly one of the best on BYOND, and I was part of that. Now it's gone. I would like to bring it back, but I see no way to do so. After all, I suppose it is the good memories that will remain, and the time spent with such a great community.

FFL COULD be brought back if we could somehow make Square-Enix realize that FFL was a non-profit project and that it didn't stop people from buying their official FF4 games. That it in fact encouraged people to go out and buy their official games, even people who had never played any FF games before FFL.

^
Now this is accomplishable, if the WHOLE FFL community could help. All we need is a few people to come up with letters/emails to the current manager, backdated whatever, saying how they didn't play FF4 till they played FFL. I'd have never played a SNES Final Fantasy if I didn't play FFL. Honestly I HATE final fantasy but FFL has been emotional since I joined BYOND back in 2002...

Well, if it helps anything...FFL was mostly responsible for me taking interest (and eventually buying) FFIV DS, The After Years for Wii, and the Complete Collection for the PSP. (admittedly, I kinda bought the Complete Collection in part to see if they changed anything other than the graphics, but I digress...)

Mm...not sure that helps the situation much, though. Given that FFL had several (albeit sometimes necessary) things that the original FF4 (and pretty much all of the official follow-ups) didn't. Like multi-player co-op (I think FFIV DS had some goofy setup for multi-player PvP...I didn't fiddle with it at all, though...) or custom appearances...and heck, even the stat rings. (that's the reason why the code wouldn't need excessive changes, right?)

...*sigh* I talk too much...

If I could prove to them that the only reason I got sucked back into Final Fantasy was because of the community on this game, maybe we could get others to say the same and make Square realize that they messed up(normal thing for them).

PostSubject: What happened exactly?   Sat Feb 25, 2012 6:37 pm

I hadn't played in awhile, but I played the game around even when Loud first hosted it. They just sent you a letter saying taking it down or else? What right did they have exactly to do that. Like you said it wasn't making anyone any money. Sure it's copyrighted but it's only a fan based game to enjoy with others. I didn't see it hurting them. Seems there's no more fan self expression on the internet anymore of favorite games. I heard this was done for DBZ games too. What's been done since this has happened?

There are 5 or 6 FFL's up atm. Here are the 2 "main" FFL's up: byond://174.52.172.219:8008 and byond://50.115.160.67:1337
Port 8008 is managed by Fir and 1337 is managed by Eldin. Fir's has the same gameplay as Andrew's did with 1-3 new classes added in while Eldin's has been completely redone.

From what I been told, there's still some servers running, but there was so many address changes that many lost track of them.
I asked a few people but none were able to give me the current addresses. Sad

Oh, sorry about that MaSuYa. Here are the addresses for the 2 main ones up right now: byond://69.26.80.172:666 and byond://50.115.160.67:1337

Port 666 one is hosted/managed by Brett and 1337 is hosted by Tetsuya and managed by Eldin4122.
