Title: Question on this hack
Post by: Jubei1986 on September 04, 2011, 01:33:35 PM
(per FF Masters Hacks)

Wall status does nothing and AI attacks units with wall status.

0x124AE2
change 40 to 00
0x137F56
change 80 to 00

This makes the status itself blank, but allows the CT to be used elsewhere, or you can code your own status effect if you really wanted to.


SO, my question is, if i Implement this hack, could I essentially use it as a provoke type of skill where AI is forced to attack one unit if it has wall active? Or am I understanding it wrong? And will the AI still attack other units in range or focus solely on this unit?

I think it just removes the Vanilla defaults which is the AI ignores units with Wall status, much like the AI ignores units with Death Sentence status. Applying the hack makes Wall into a sort of non-status. Enemies will attack the unit normally and its default effect (which I think is preventing all damage) is removed as well. It effectively makes a new, blank status effect that you can then modify to do what you like.

I don't know enough about how the statuses work to make something like that but if a status can be flagged to make AI ignore it I suppose its possible someone could magic up a way to make them attack someone with a specific status. You might go ask some of the ASM crew.

Use a Perservering skill of some kind, the AI will generally prioritize trying to midcharge over everything else and the skill itself can be a self-heal or something to compensate for that.

so basically what your saying is, make a self -cure spell with a moderate charging time so the AI will be more likely to attack that unit on that turn?

0x137F56
change 80 to 00

I'm guessing this is the one that prevents the AI from ignoring units with Wall status?

??? AI always considered the wall status because that status makes you invincible... well more precisely:
All status, magical and physical attacks are nulled. You can only receive damage from traps and HP Cost backfire in abilities.
