Modding Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions [Android]?
« on: February 03, 2018, 09:41:07 PM »
Hello,

I was wondering if there were any guides on how someone would go about modding the APK for the game? I'm not talking about heavy graphic changes, like sprites or whatnot, but I guess more like modding the apk for cheats, like infinite or max gil, jp etc. I would like to be able to do this for the latest patch 2.0.0, which fixes a lot of issues. And I know a lot of people frown upon cheats, but hopefully someone here knows how one could go about this and can help a fellow FFT fan out.  :)

Anyways, thank you for reading!  :D
Toshiko

The Android version has so many anti-tampering measures that it doesn't look very feasible without a very large amount of work, especially given that the current version doesn't work at all with most common root methods. As ever, your best bet for modding is the good old original PlayStation version.

    Hi and thanks for the reply! :)

    Well, I've gotten as far as extracting the apk into its .so files and opening that in IDA, but I have no idea what to edit to achieve what I want. I was hoping some more experienced modded/hackers could give me some ideas on what is what, though now that I think about it, the code is probably extremely different (categorized into tabs on the left). I've messed around with ChnMoney and GetAbility, repacked the apk and it launches etc, but it doesn't seem to make any real changes to the game. I guess that's the anti-tampering measures in work? Ugh. I paid for the game, I should be able to cheat a little if I want to.  :lol:

    The PSX version doesn't have the new features and translations, but if I get desperate enough to quit the mobile version, I'll load up my PSX copy.

    The PSP version can very easily be emulated on Android, and has a lot of the features you're looking for.

    While I own a PSP, I do not own a working copy of the WotL. I own it on PSX and mobile (Android). I was looking for mobile because I'd like to play it on long drives or whatnot, away from something like computers or large consoles and tvs.

    That said, I found a way to edit the game and managed to set the funds to 99999999, and am currently working on setting up the JP/Skills Function. I just have to figure out which one is which (there are dozens of Functions with "skill/job/jp" in it, and then which HEX is proper to edit that won't result in CTD. xD

    If I can figure it all out and get it to work, I could leave instructions on how to edit one's own copy or, if it is allowed, leave an altered apk (without the obb). :)

    It's not hard to find copies of the game online, and you can find free and paid PSP emulators for Android right on the app store.

    Oh! Well I did not know there are PSP emulators for Android, but the odds are, my tablet is not strong enough to emulate it. I will try it if I can't get this mod to work (and it is looking like I can't). Has the PSP version been patched for the slow motion and crashing though? The last time I played it, that problem plagued it just as it did 1.1.0 versions of mobile FFT.

    There's a patch to counter the slow motion. You only crash if you patch with TacText without changing the crystal/treasure announcement text.

    Oh! Would you mind much if I asked directions to the correct patch and patcher + instructions then? I'd hate to patch up my ISOs wrong because I used the wrong patcher or something.

    The Universal Slowdown Removal patch topic is the one pinned to the top of the WotL board on these forums.

    Alright, I'm assuming it is the first one posted by plastik and not the second one posted by "endrift", but what about the above thing you mentioned? The "TacText without changing the crystal/treasure announcement text" thing? The thread doesn't say anything about the patcher or the instructions, so I'm still not sure about that bit.  :oops:
