Two of the pictures are based on the FM Towns version: The gypsy wagon and the tree by the stream. The tree in all the japanese versions of the game looks nothing like a willow tree, that's why it looks different here. I guess the japanese artists didn't know what a willow tree was.

The renaissance faire pictures in the japanese versions also look nothing like a renaissance faire, with large circus tents, circus clowns, balloons and so on.

Are the intro graphics based on the FM-Towns version? At least the tree picture looks quite a bit similar, but also altered quite a bit.

Anyway, I just heard today there will be yet ANOTHER release, with dungeon graphics based on FM-Towns version, enhanced main character graphics with more colorful sprite underlays etc.

(Well, one could always hope today wasn't 1. 4.... :P)

I scanned the map for this release of Ultima IV, but as the map is 10mb huge, we decided to put it on the side. However, it is now added for you to download. Enjoy.

@Jupp3: Yes, just copy over the S?? files to the remastered disk, or use restore in the cartridge save menu to copy them to flash.

Great stuff guys! You can now be seen as scene heroes! :)
Would it be a good idea to make a slideshow of all Mermaid's gfx for this?

Looks fantastic!

One question that could be answered "in public" (I guess I'll try that later on):

Is it possible to continue game started with the previous version? No matter how much better this looks, I'll rather continue than start over :-)

@fuzzybad: I have sent documentation and source for the loader to Ingo Korb, so he can add support for ULoad M4 in a firmware update. No promises and no timeframe though.

@cadaver: In-game hotkeys for teleportation and spawning a balloon were a godsend, together with unlimited magic to quickly win combat and move in dungeons :)

Superb intro graphics. Also appreciate the depth of fixing, lifting fixed game bytecode & conversations from other ports. That has to take some serious testing to make sure nothing gets broken, at which point the trainers probably get handy :)

Excellent work - I've never played more than a few minutes of ULtima 4 but this makes me want to play through it. The new graphics are amazing!

That said, I have one suggestion for improvement. Would it be possible for the loader to support SD2IEC devices?

Count Zero: that's because you don't have a savegame to edit (see Goofs). Start the game and save once first.

Lovely!
On VICE when running the .crt and entering the savegame editor it asks me to insert a disk into device #239 though :)

Damn, can't you type it out here as DATA statements or something? Or maybe GUBBDATA statements would be more appropriate. Party on!
