Help! / Re: Wacky proposition bugs.
« on: Today at 02:15:26 PM »
Test without some hacks, especially if they are strongly related to the bug in question.

We don't know every bug of every hack, because our community is so small and many hacks get used by a single digit amount of people... so basically, you just have to figure it out yourself.

Help! / Re: Issues with getting abilities to work on Ninja.
« on: April 22, 2018, 12:33:17 AM »
You could just use one of the empty skill sets. You can change which skillset Ninja uses in the jobs tab. Then you can name it in FFTactext.
That only works for WotL. On the PSX version, learnt abilities are based on skillset ID, so if you pick another skillset, in battle it's going to try to read Total Chemist JP as that's skillset's learnt abilities or something.

As to how to solve this problem, change Throw's action menu to normal, use my Skillset Behaviours spreadsheet to change Throw to Basic Skill behaviour or something, and as for the ability names that pop up well, I don't know if a hack was ever made for it or gone public.

PSX FFT Hacking / Re: Soldier Office Upgrade

I made this thing so long ago, and tested it myself on console, plus there are others who have confirmed it worked... so, there has to be a reason why it's freezing, and I'm not sure why. I do know that you really should make the text edits.

As far as the DTE issue is concerned, this confuses me because I never had this issue. Try to trim some text in that section a bit?

And FFTOrgASM saying there's a problem with my hack is just a false alert. It would be parsing the data you generated with the spreadsheet as opcodes, and it shouldn't do that since those bytes were never meant to be opcodes.

I'm not sure how that works then, because I've only ever gotten DTE errors with too much text. But no one knows how Tactext works so...

Have you ever patched your ISO through Tactext, then later on, imported the text from that text-patched ISO, edited, and tried to patch again, causing this error to pop up? Or getting an error trying to load a .ffttext file that was created from a modified ISO's text data?
(Sorry, kinda forgot what triggers the bug since I never experienced it myself.)

Are you using my FFTText Editor?

What version of Tactext are you using?

lessen: This is perfectly normal behaviour. There's nothing wrong on your end: i.e. this is a bug with the mod itself.

Help! / Re: Making new monsters with breeding mechanics.
« on: April 03, 2018, 02:06:07 PM »
The game only allows the generic monster graphic IDs to reproduce, and it's coded in a way that it multiplies the ID of the graphic by 3, and the next 3 jobs will be a possible outcome as an egg. Basically it's in no way flexible, and that doesn't even take into account the palette or sprite limitations of UNIT.BIN which would be a real goddamn pain to work past. Monsters have 1-3 palettes available in UNIT.BIN and you can't just increase it just like that; it's all hardcoded and a tight fit.

Help! / Re: Multi attack animations
« on: April 01, 2018, 11:07:00 AM »
You're mistaken. It's not a "left hand" punching animation; it would be a punching animation no matter what, because the game simply resets the weapon swing animation to default (i.e. punch) after the first attack.

I'm going to have to check with my team if an ASM to fix this is available.

How can you edit effects in war of the lions ?
Just as you would on the PSX version. Extract, edit, reimport.
Just replace the cdmage/cdprog portion of my tutorial with whatever you need to do to extract/import files with WotL:

Choto made a tool to edit effects (to some extent), and it supposedly allows converting single target effects to multi-targets, but he never explained how. I know he has converted a bunch himself, and several were used for JotF, but I forgot where he posted them.

Hacking/Patching Tools / Re: ISO Manager v1.00b
« on: March 29, 2018, 06:43:03 PM »
You're welcome. I didn't reply to your question/bug because I was extremely confused by your problem and just had no idea of what could be happening...
It is also a fair amount of stuff to mess with and learn, but once you understand how it works, my spreadsheet can be quite useful.

And you had to expand because of Shishi moving all the sprite files and resizing them. Shishi simply doesn't do it "properly" as far as the CD file index is concerned.

To my knowledge/poor memory, it hasn't been done... I tried looking a bit at the code and I just can't figure out for the life of me how to make it retain the Ability AoE and vertical tolerance.

I know the subject came up in the past at least, but I can't find the other topics. ¯\(°_o)/¯

Well, if we look at this page:

15E isn't listed, but according to the code documentation (, it stands for the Monster Graphic. A really easily solution if you just want any monster, is instead to target the Monster gender. Which, as far as battle stats are concerned, is 0x0006, with flag 0x20 for Monster.

All we need to do is load that byte instead of the monster graphic, and check if the flag is set:
Code: [Select]
lbu r2, 0x0006(r2)        Load Target's Gender
andi r2, r2, 0x0020       Gender = Monster

I also made a xml with the code since the hack was so simple, although I think I just wasted my time because I think JotF already has such a hack lol.

To anyone out there interested in ASM hacking, it's just that simple with code documentation, so why not give it a try?

PS: I didn't test it but I'd be really surprised if it didn't work.

Yeah, it seems to only hit units with the Monster Skill ability equipped, which... I don't see the point of such an ability?

You also didn't say what you wanted though.

That's your only option

By ASM hacking, yes. You'd have to edit this code to affect the formulas checking if the target is a dragon:
  • 5A Dragon: Hit(100)%
  • 5B Dragon: Heal_(Y)% 100% Add Status
  • 5C Dragon: +Brave_(X) +PA/MA/SP(Y)
  • 5D Dragon: Set_Quick

I thought someone made a hack to change the Dragon requirement to Monster, but I couldn't find it.

Otherwise you'd have to edit existing formulas or create your own if you wanted something more than that.

You could use FFTPatcher to generate GameShark codes to give her main job innate support abilities.

PSX FFT Hacking / Re: Final Fantasy Tactics PvP
« on: March 26, 2018, 09:40:38 PM »
That doesn't make any sense. I already stated Arena is used as a base.

Wow, that is just sad.

Listen, you can either listen to my advice, or be miserable the rest of your life. It's your call if you want to wake up or not. I'm not your boss, and it's your life.

You're going to be fucking wasting your life away if you try to pay back student loans being a dishwasher.

You got replaced because you were very replaceable.
Your current job also has you easily replaceable.

So, how do you make yourself not easily replaceable? You need a skill that is rare, and high in demand. Something that is up to date, not information that you learn in college that immediately puts you 5 years behind in terms of knowledge compared to people who learn how to code using just Google.

The moment you graduated, your knowledge was already was outdated. That's how school curriculums work; they don't change very fast. Now if you only try get a new programming job in 4 years, what's going to happen? Why would anyone hire you? You're not special, you're not up to date, you're fucking nothing.

You need to find a skill you perform well at and stick to it. Use Google; no one in the history of the world ever had access to so much information, and most of it is FREE. I don't care if it's programming or not. Is programming really for you? Is it the only thing you can remotely excel at? Is it worth all the trouble? You have to ask yourself these questions.

Because with your current plan, your life situation will NOT improve. That would be a total fucking delusion. Most Americans don't even have 10k in savings to retire, hell, something like 28% don't even have a single dollar saved for retirement.
And our generation will have it FAR worse. If you don't have plans to excel, yeah, then just get replaced by indians and robots and complain how people should go into prison even though you were so fucking replaceable in the first place. That's gonna help. You can bitch all you want, but it doesn't change the fact that your life is your own responsibility. The sooner you accept that, the sooner you can move on and start improving your life.

I might have sounded harsh, but you need to wake the fuck up.
