Key points

This is a PC port of an Android port of a DS remake of the SNES game.
An update for the game was released in November 2020, adding a more traditional UI, better gamepad support and adjustments to keyboard and mouse controls, full widescreen support, including 21:9 widescreen compatibility, and Asian language support.
No texture filtering. GeDoSaTo can force it, but at the cost of some minor graphical glitches.
Frame rate is capped at 30 FPS, 15 FPS during combat.[1][2][3]

Texture filtering[edit]

Use GeDoSaTo[4]
  1. Download and install GeDoSaTo.
  2. Download and extract GLDirect and place opengl32.dll in the same folder as FF4.exe.
  3. Create a whitelist in GeDoSaTo called FF4.
  4. In GeDoSaTo/config, copy GeDoSaTo.ini and put it in a new folder called FF4. Adjust the resolution values in GeDoSaTo.ini here if you want to downsample from a higher resolution for antialiasing as well.
  5. Run Final Fantasy IV with GeDoSaTo active.


This can cause a wide variety of minor graphical glitches in places.
