I. Introduction
Thank you for downloading the Final Fantasy 6 conversion for Myth 2. I hope you have a lot of fun with the diverse amount of gameplay available. This conversion hearkens back to 1994, before graphics were the reason people bought games. It was a time when good, solid gameplay was needed to impress audiences. Final Fantasy 6, originally called Final Fantasy 3 when it was released on the Super Nintendo in the US, was no exception either. It has arguably been called "the greatest role playing game ever". As such, to create the general "feel" of the game, I have decided to use the original 16-bit graphics to recreate the characters. Although many of their frames had to be custom drawn, they still maintain their original "retro-style" appearance consisting of 4 directional views.

II. Stages
Hilarious action and solid gameplay were the prime goals of this project, and there is a stage to match just about everyone's taste. Most all the stages are equal battles with the exception of the human stages where you have Good Guys vs. Bad Guys, in which case the good "super characters" are different than the bad ones. There was originally going to be 7 multiplayer stages, but due to some technical problems, "The Veldt" map, focusing on the animal units, had to be dropped.
Extra Stage - The Training Map - An entertaining way to learn the abilities of all the characters and items you'll encounter in this TC. There are three meshes, representing the three types of units there are (excluding the boats). Use shift-new game to access them.
-- The multiplayer stages --
1. South Figaro - created by Brent McDonald - A bustling town where you can blend in with the crowds and use the many available items to your advantage. Read the "Items" section of this text for information on all the items.
2. Assault on Narshe - created by Aaron Justice - An all-out strategic war in the craggy Narshe Snowfields, that has a similar feel as Cracks in the Cloudspine. Beware of yetis in hunting mode!
3. The Phantom Forest - created by Brent McDonald - You control an array of ghosts with a vast variety of elemental powers at your disposal. Use your powers carefully.
4. Doma Castle - created by Aaron Justice - It's a war between the forces of the Empire and the garrison of Doma Castle. Strategy is key...
5. The Great Sea - created by Brent McDonald - A fast-paced sea battle using only boats as combatants. Designed especially for Assassin mode. Do not attack your own buildings!
6. Nikeah - created by Aaron Justice - A port village full of merchants who become enraged when provoked, complete with a set of defensible islands.

Armor (an upper suit of armor)
- strengths --> damage taken reduced by half
- weaknesses --> does not protect against lightning
Chili Powder Bag (a small bag with a little picture of a pepper on it)

- weaknesses --> none
Fire Orb (a scintillating red orb)
- strengths --> allows you to use Kefka's "Flare Star" attack
- weaknesses --> none
Ice Crystal (a shining blue diamond shaped stone)
- strengths --> allows you to use the Ice Image's "Cold Dust" attack
- weaknesses --> makes you weak against fire until you use it
Bio Sphere (a greenish glassy sphere)
- strengths --> allows you to use the Poison Ghost's "Bio Blaster" attack
- weaknesses --> none
Hydro Ball (a swirling blue ball)

- weaknesses --> makes you weak against electricity until you use it
Titan's Mitt (a golden glove)

- weaknesses --> you are weak against everything

V. Tips and Tricks
- Beware of ranged units if you are equipped with the Titan's Mitt
- If an enemy is standing near explosives, use Tek Laser to set them off
- Bombs, Gas Grenades, and Mines don't explode on contact. Try to compensate by control-clicking on the ground in front of an enemy, otherwise the bomb will hit the enemy and bounce away before it explodes.
- Yetis in hunting mode will attack back! If you attack them, be ready for a fight...
- A Wizard or an SP Force equipped with a Titan's Mitt is a powerful combination
- Giga Volt is very good at launching items into the air...
- Play the Training Maps to learn and have fun with the units
- Read the characters' flavors for a few good laughs
