Updated emulators and Final Fantasy PSX bundle torrent

September 27, 2011

This is just a file update.

  • The torrent I was hosting that contained the massive PS1 bundle of Final Fantasy 7-9/ Tactics/ Chronicles/ Origins/ Anthology turned dead, so I replaced it with a new one. Find it in my download pages for Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 9, and Final Fantasy Tactics.
  • For my Video Game Emulators page I updated the following emulators:
    • FCE Ultra (NES)
    • DeSmuME (Nintendo DS)
    • PCSX2 (Playstation 2)
    • Ootake (TurboGrafx16)
    • MameUI 32-bit & 64-bit (Arcade)
Final Fantasy VI

Added FFVI Stand Guard patch, & Busy with school...

August 19, 2011

  • Screen shot from Final Fantasy 6 Stand Guard hackI have added the sexy new Final Fantasy VI: Stand Guard patch to my Final Fantasy 6 Downloads! So with all the patches I already offer, what's so special about this one? Well now! Stand Guard perfects the game! It's what Final Fantasy 6 should've been when it was originally released. The dialogue has been polished to add more detail and correct typos. Censored graphics are no longer censored. You can dash with the cancel button. And more! The package includes an easy patch, a normal patch, and a hard patch, providing 3 levels of difficulty. This is by far the best quality patch for those of you who want to replay FInal Fantasy 6 without a drastically different experience offered by the other patches.
  • You may have noticed I've been updating less and the updates are rather skimpy. Well, in January I started a Masters degree in Internet Marketing. It's been taking up a lot of my spare time, especially as of late with the harder classes. I can't work on the site as much as I'd like to. I've had to push aside all the big plans I have for it. However I graduate in December (it's accelerated so it's just 1 year) so I'll be back in 2012! Usually when a fan site announces news like this, next thing you see them saying “Ah sorry, I'm getting married so I can't update the site”, or “Ah sorry, I have kids now so I can't update the site”, ultimately ending up with “Ah sorry, I can't update the site anymore. I'm just too busy. So I'm shutting it down! Bye!” - That's NOT going to happen here. I will come back in all my glory in 2012!

June 27, 2011

  • Final Fantasy 6 Restoration comparisonAre you annoyed by how nasty the bright colors and inaccurate sound instruments are in Final Fantasy VI Advance for GBA? Worry no more!

You can download either a pre-patched game or download the individual patches to patch the game yourself.

Ootake, TurboGrafx16 emulator

Added tutorial for Ootake, #1 free TurboGrafx16 emu

March 23, 2011

By popular demand, I've finally made a tutorial for Ootake. Ootake is that free TurboGrafx16 emulator that everyone wants to use to play the popular CD games like Dracula X and the RPGs covered in Classic CD RPGs, because they don't want to pay $19 for MagicEngine. I don't blame them. Who wants to pay for an emulator when so many are free? You can download Ootake from my emulators page.
*Remember, all the popular TurboGrafx16-CD games can be downloaded from my site

Castlevania Symphony of the Night is here!!

NEW!! Castlevania: Symphony of the Night shrine! And Tumblr

March 10, 2011

Castlevania Symphony of the Night shrine is here!

  • NEW!! I've added an RPG shrine for one of the best games on the Playstation 1 - Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. It's got the usual goodies: game info, secrets, maps, official art, music, game saves, wallpapers, movie clips, and the torrent for downloading the game. The design around pages is 3D I modeled myself. The screen shots are in "3D"; I captured them in 640x480 so any 3D effects are rendered sharply. In the movie clips page I made a full gameplay trailer that covers every area of the first castle and every boss. So check out the shrine to experience all this classic gaming sexiness!!
  • Also, FantasyAnime is now on Tumblr! Yep, I'm agressive when it comes to social media.

February 23, 2011

My Chrono Trigger 3D wallpaperPhew, this took me forever to make! I recreated Squaresoft's official artwork of Crono standing in front of the Epoch. Check out my Chrono Trigger Desktop Wallpapers page to download it!

I blogged about all the details behind the creation of this wallpaper in the forum. I think I've gotten pretty good at 3D! My work is getting closer to looking real.

I also added 26 new fan art pictures.

CT Crimson Echoes, Final Conflict characters, FF4 shots

January 21, 2011

  • Chrono Trigger Crimson EchoesI've added the FULL version of Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes! That's the famous fan remake of Chrono Trigger. It's a full ROM hack that provides an entirely new game! Think of it as a sequel to Chrono Trigger. Note: Even though I added the download under Patches, it's actually a prepatched game since I don't have the patch.
  • I've totally reworked my Final Fantasy 4 Screen Shots page. I organized the shots into categories, and for the shots themselves I added 2x zoom upon click.
  • For Shining Force: Final Conflict, I FINALLY got around toward adding a characters page for it. Yeah, ever since I opened the shrine it didn't have one. Well now it does! Maps are included in the bio's for the two hidden characters to show you exactly where they are.
Phantasy Star 2 maps

New & improved Phantasy Star 2 maps

January 14, 2011

A *VERY* generous guy took the time to make new & improved maps for Phantasy Star 2 exclusively for FantasyAnime. It was a lot of work! If you remember, my old maps were unmarked and kind of confusing to follow. No more! These maps are awesome! Click here for the Phantasy Star 2 maps page. Take note that no other website has such helpful maps for Phantasy Star 2.
