Speech

Hello. Welcome to Final Fantasy Classic. This web site is all about the original Final Fantasy game for the NES, and its endless stream of spinoffs and remakes.

I'm Dr. Unne. I'll be your sarcastic guide. Never compare me to Clippy, or I'll eat your face.

If you're unsure what you're doing here, pick a game in the menu on the left. Please note, the NES section is more complete than the others, and much of the information in the NES section is applicable to all the remakes also.

The bad thing about having a real job is that I get home at night, and I think "Should I work on the FF1 site? Or should I work on work?" Then I remember that work pays me large sums of money. And the rest is history.

But I had today off, so I finished updating a large part of the DoS info, including all the weapons/armor that I've been missing from those pages for a long time. And I realized that all the prices for all the spells on the DoS page are wrong. And so on. But I haven't uploaded any of the new stuff yet, because if I did I'd break the whole site. So we'll have to wait.

I have also mentally worked out how the fanart section is going to work. But I can't upload it until everything else is done, or I'll break the internet. Thems the breaks.

Plans

After long months of deliberation, I've determined that the way to make this site good is to find ways of updating it regularly that don't involve much work on my part. This involves either writing scripts to do all my work for me (which is actually fun for me, compared to doing manual labor), or finding other people to do all my work for me. (Thanks again Nicole.)

I put in a good evening of work on the site tonight, including a rewrite of a large portion of the scripts driving the NES section. (None of which is uploaded yet, so don't bother looking.) This is in preparation for finally getting off my arse and completing the charts and data for all the remakes. I have figured out a pretty good way of getting this done without much manual labor on my part, so I hope to have it done soon. E.g. I got the DoS armor chart data including all the new DoS-only armors into the database in about 25 minutes; the other charts shouldn't take quite so long, is my hope.

I am looking for a photo gallery script that works under Ruby on Rails which will allow people to upload their own fanart automatically, so that the fanart section can be reborn. This will remove my lazy self from the equation (other than moderating uploads). If I can't find a suitable script I'll have to write one, which I hope won't be too hard.

I'm also going to be looking for some affiliate sites in the near future. If you run a fairly popular website and would be interested in a link exchange, please email me. Many Final Fantasy sites don't have a very comprehensive FF1 section, and linking to mine can make up a bit for the deficit for your users.

I may be asking for volunteers / contributors to help with some other things. If you're interested, stick around.

Behold.

Behold PSP Unne in all his glory.

Recently I purchased some items which allow me to take screenshots of FF1 on my PSP. This is good news for this site, since I can now work on the PSP section.

Here are some teaser screenshots... they look pretty good quality to me.

The tournament ends.... now

Well I guess it really ended a few days ago. Thanks Nicole for doing a great job running the tournament and updating it on time and keeping it interesting. It was the best thing that's happened to this site in a long time.

I think Nicole has some more things planned... stay tuned. </mysterious>

I decided to end the last round early since I won't have access to a computer from now until Monday, and because it's a foregone conclusion that you're all a bunch of heathens.

Twenty-eighth round: Chaos vs Thief.
