I'm in love, I hope it plays well. This would be the perfect game for me lol. Ninja blink tanking in a fighter haha. Man I want this. Wish it was official and a better quality, but this looks good enough.

Isn't this just the Japanese characters that have been around forever in one batch download with a quick and dirty UI slapped on? :| He certainly didn't make 26 characters himself in 30 hours, even being able to animate in modelviewer, and stuff like Buront's cut-ins or the Mithra monk's moves look a lot like the ones here several months or several years ago.

for a second I thought they finished work on the FF11 fighter that was being made on 2ch by the guy behind La Theine no Hoshi and a bunch of other people (who never got their part of the job done). Had a very well made 2d sprite animated thief character fully built but nothing more.

I actually wanted to make a RPG beat-em-up (a la old school Dungeons and Dragons from CAPCOM) with the use of the 3D model viewer for Final Fantasy XI but am not experienced with game programming, so I'm happy someone else had a similar idea. Definitely going to check this out.

LOL everyone is free to King Behemoth, just spamming thunderbolt, no one can take my defending ring.


I'm sad there's no Genbu, Prishe, Lilisette, Chigoe, Dhalmel, Courier Carrie, Fenrir, Carbuncle, Diabolos, Malboro, Chocobo, Moogle, Porrogo or even the dreaded "Tanaka" in this.


Worm is awesome though haha

Oh god, 7 years of ffxi, finally had to put it down for good this spring (boyfriend got jealous this timesink of a game). Totally going to get this so I can play my PUP and DNC again, Pup being my one true love of ffxi.

This just makes me want a single player FFXI all the more. FFXI-2, this is a game that deserves it. Pick any class, get visible gear, visit all of the zones. Garrrrrh!!

Some of those characters have been around for ages, so the guy probably just slapped every FFXI character and stage he found together in ready-to-use package - I'd be surprised if the characters all had a cogerent control sustem between, let alone a semblance of balance.

That being said, if something like this had a Blue Mage implementation as flexible as FFXI itself that was quicker to set up, Ono would have a character customization system to emulate that could succeed where SFxT's gems failed.

Okay, I downloaded this to make sure before I called people out, and...

It really is just this dude finding all the 2ch FFXI Mugen characters he could, slapping them in a zip file with his own title screen, and saying he made a game. Not even the newest versions, most of them date from 2008 or 2009--if you don't believe me, look in the "chars" folder, they've still got all their original readmes and dates plus the corruption that comes from opening and then resaving Japanese filenames on English Windows.

There's even a few (like Z4Tonberry) by western MUGEN guys, if you can't read the Japanese readmes well enough to find the actual credits.

This is just kind of sad and shameful.

Kind of off topic, but whatever happened to that fighting game with the shit load of video game characters being made by those two dudes? It was like all sprites and had people from all over, Master Chief, Samus, Cloud, Link, they had cards on their site or something. Anybody know what I'm talking about?
