Version 1.0 07/30/04-guide created, but only for FF1 right now.


This FAQ is for personal use only. It cannot be altered without the consent
of the FAQ's owner (me), nor published in any magazines or any reproducted
form. This FAQ is not meant for sale and is copyright 2004 Red Scarlet. If
you want to use this FAQ on your Website or page, please email me for
permission (akaiscarlet_at_hotmail.com or mockballqueen_at_hotmail.com) Go
to www.njstar.com to get the Japanese text to display how it would on the
game (or use some other kind of Japanese text viewing program), or just
right click the window and choose encoding (with IE anyway).

This FAQ is for anyone who has the Gameboy Advance version of Final Fantasy 1
and 2, and needs to know what the heck is going on after the characters are
chosen, and for the menu screens.  I assume you already know the game, so there
are very few actual strategies in this FAQ.  There are already a few at
Gamefaqs already made, so view one of those if you need direction on where to
go.
The newest updates will always be at Gamefaqs.

In pretty much all of the lists, the order of what things are in will be:
Japanese Kana that appears onscreen/romanized version/my translation. Enjoy!

FF1 is up first.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


First up are the options at the title screen.

ニューゲーム: Nyu-ge-mu (New Game) Starts a new game.
ロードゲーム: Ro-doge-mu (Load Game) Continue off of a saved game (up to 3
              different files can be saved).


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you are starting a New Game, you will arrive at the Character Select screen.
Choose your four characters out of the six different types:

せんし: Senshi (Warrior)
シーフ: Si-fu (Thief)
モンク: Monku (Monk)
あかまじゅつし: Akamajutsushi (Red Mage)
しろまじゅつし: Shiromajutsushi (White Mage)
くろまじゅつし: Kuromajutsushi (Black Mage)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the naming prompt appears, use this chart to pick the name you want (or
just use the English letters).  Hit the Select button for random default
names if you want.

Start button (same as selecting End)

     After choosing your party and names, hit Start.  The game asks if you
are done choosing, and then asks はい: Hai (yes) or いいえ: Iie (no).

     Then after that, the screen will change and two options will appear.

かんじ: Kanji
ひらがな: Hiragana

If you select Kanji, then Kanji will appear in the spoken text.  If you
choose Hiragana, then Kanji will be replaced by the simpler Hiragana.

Once the game begins, hit the start button to reach the menu screen.
