I'll take a look at the documentation throughout the patches and try to find which one might be causing the issue.

A helpful thing that darkmage can do is add info to the readme that explains to the user how to tell which type of rom he has (right click on the file, view number of bytes)
TheNattak and I were messing around with the improvement patch v0.92, and we found this bug in battle. In the options menu, if you change the style of the commands from window to short, and you access the "row" command in battle, this happens:
To us it seems like a problem in the code that erases the windows. The same problem happens with the "defense" command.
If someone knows how to fix it and/or reveal the address at where the code is not functioning will be greatly appreciated. The code to expand windows in battle may be close..so any help will be greatly appreciated.
Hey! I'm glad to see this is progressing smoothly. I played through the first bit of the initial release with a friend's little brother--I liked the fixes, and he just fell in love with VI.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "more hack-friendly method" ?
I still have the revised original improvement patch applied. I have been applying patches as they come out. But yeah, no more bugs or game breaking issues, or conflicting patches. ;)
Even if you did set the "immune to death" flag, using something like an x-potion or elixir would deal maximum damage to them. I think it'd be best to just not give undead status to bosses.
Also, as for the name, you can use whatever later games used (does FF6 Advance call him "Ghost Train" or something?)
Personally, I like "Phantom Train" better, but that's just me. One thing I would suggest though, make Phantom Train no longer undead - I always found it cheap that you could kill him with a Phoenix Down.
Also, might I suggest a text suggestion? Most NPC's names are in all caps, but the game now defaults player names to be in lowercase. These inconsistencies are an eyesore, I mean, when you see something like the following:
BANON: Blah blah blah
Terra: I like to burn things.
BANON: Blah blah blah
Locke: I'm a thief.
ULTROS: I have tentacles!
...doesn't it make you just want to break something?
