^ I tried that code on the US version, and all it did was make my character invisible inside Mirage Tower. Maybe I inputted it incorrectly, but I doubt it.
Also, I would be wary about using the code, anyway. I used it in the JP version, and after saving, when I reloaded the game, it would freeze at the file select screen. --- No pulse, no breath, cold as a cod. Yes, thou art truly dead. - Dragon Warrior II
^Like-wise, I tried the code and it simply made my character invisible in the tower but everywhere else it was the same old red haired guy. Shame, I don't see why you couldn't simply customise your character from the start.
Oh well, I hope someone comes out with a working code soon.
