You can specify a status in my original sheet (v1.1), but I know in that case, the AI ignores the status requirements if you use auto-battle.

Messing around with Pokeytax's spreadsheet, it's not even possible to accomplish with his sheet. In fact, as far as I can tell, his entire Conditions section is broken (the xml code doesn't change no matter if I choose =/!=/>/</>=/<=/FLAGGED/NOT FLAGGED), and thus just makes it one huge downgrade compared to my spreadsheet. Oh, actually you can just select Status / FLAGGED and then type Regen under Value 2 for my above example. I don't know if the hack actually works, but the spreadsheet does compile that way at least.

You could also make it work properly if you waited for my ARH2 and coded it yourself through ASM.

Regardless, you would still have to ASM a formula that returns 0% to hit if the target doesn't have the required statuses.

Well, you can dump your idea in the ASM Requests topic amongst the dozen other requests that were ignored and hope for the best, do it yourself, or forget about the idea entirely.

He doesn't ASM and I'm pretty damn sure that's never been done before.

First ability to the last ability of each skillset, if the unit has enough JP left, attempt to learn at Learn % (and consume the JP is successful).
I made a hack that increases flexibility for that drastically; it allows you to learn in a certain order, even randomize some skills.
That hack will be made available after Journey of the Five: Chapter 2 is released... again, because I can't find anyone to test my hacks and not lie to me that they will test and report bugs, and they just end up not doing so.

You can use my FFTText Editor to overcome FFTTactext's limitations.
You can use my Skillsets Behaviours spreadsheet to adjust some special skillset menus back into regular ones, for example. (i.e. Item/Throw/Math Skill/etc.) But it does't sound like you need this. There are plenty of free skillsets available, after all.

Otherwise I don't know about any sort of limitations towards "unusable/glitchy jobs/skillsets/spritesheet slots", other than ID 00. If you asked about abilities, then that would be a different story, because lots of them are hardcoded.

Look for my palette hacks in FFTorgASM. Special (non-generic) jobs are forced to use the first palette and generic monsters are forced to use the palette assigned in their job. My hacks allows you to enable the extra palettes of special units, but you'll have to be careful, because for some reason, many special units throughout the story are set to palette 1 or 2 instead of 0, making them essentially pure black by default once you turn on my hack.

Sounds like fdc fucked up hardcore. I have no idea what needed to be "fixed" when it comes to elemental, but even though the hack is in my xml, he basically did what he did to a bunch of my other hacks: completely rewrite them into something that doesn't do what they originally did, and put it in my xml. He somehow felt he was in charge of updating my hacks xml file without ever telling me or even ever asking me. He took terrible liberties using my name. He's an imposter and a terrible hacker.

Yes, they're supposed to stack. Strengthen is supposed to raise your effective MA from 11 to 13, for example.

I guess you didn't get that Celdia's tutorial is now pretty pointless.

In GG, open the bmp of the sprite, crop to the portrait, rotate it.
Select All & Copy (ctrl+c) (if you choose to load from clipboard in the next step)
Click the down arrow button under the palette colours, choose Load Palette/File/Load From Clipboard (or from file)
Copy the portrait's palette row (9th row unless you want a different one) to the 1st palette row. Then select the 9th row in the first box, and the 1st row in the second box, uncheck Match Pixels with Colors.
All Frames/Color Depth, choose 4bpp, OK.
Unfortunately, that will likely fuck up your palette's order (which is important), so you'll have to reimport the palette from file, selecting the original sprite's file and copy the 9th row to the 1st row again, but this time with Match Pixels with Colors.
Save the bmp and import in Shishi.

I actually wanted to move both the world map conditionals and the event conditionals into kanji space (to allow JotF to use only one disc, but then I remembered that we still needed more sprite space), but I figured it would be too much trouble. How bad was it?

According to my notes, 0x0016 uses 2 half-words... shouldn't you be better off with just one?

EDIT: I fucked up somewhere hardcore in that documentation... 0x0016 has no half-word allocated to it by default.

I'm not sure why you're taking it personally because that is not the intent. It was more of an opportunity to post something funny than to make fun of you. It's not like Elric has a Master's degree in English or anything; I know some mistakes he just keeps repeating over and over, but he has also been making an effort to get better; so have I. Both our typed English has gotten loads better thanks to my wife, who is exceedingly good at English. I've had people laugh at how I spell things or how I pronounce them and I don't take it personally; I just laugh along. I used to pronounce 3rd (third) as "turd"! If that's not funny, I don't know what is. Well, I can just blame Quebec's education system for that.

If anything, I make fun of English for using 98% of the words they take from French (my native language), and change the definition drastically. For example, raisins in French are grapes, while in English, they are dried grapes. Just like an entrée in French is an appetizer, while in English it stands for the main course.

Trust me, if anyone here was trying to make fun of you, they wouldn't go so lightly.

I have an incomplete ASM hack for that, but even if it was completed, it would not be very practical. I started it 5 years ago and didn't really think of an elegant solution. The only part of my hack that is working is to allow generic guests into the party. No way to remove them.

You cannot set a generic's skillset to another. The calculator slot must always have the Math Skill skillset for example, because the game relies on the skillset ID to determine where the learnt abilities are stored in battle.

Make sure you also apply the Math Skill hacks in Assorted.xml.

We have a hack to enable it though.

Please use the latest version of the FFTPatcher suite and not the oldest...

DTE failed means you are using so much text in that section, that even with DTE compression it doesn't fit. But with the WotL version there might be something more to it than that. It's just that no one knows what.

Also, in general TacText works way better for the PSX version and no, it doesn't have the crystallization bug.

Newly reported bugs:
  • Might get a run time error whenever the last MEMLOCATION uses hex instead of an op code when attempting to save

Bug Fixes:
  • Save to Savestate did not save anything to savestates anymore (thanks to Pride for the bug report)

  • Re-introduced the "Concatenate Cells" function.

  • Reimport SharedXifiSheets.bas

Mentioned it in chat but I'll post it here. I seem to get a run time error whenever the last memlocation uses hex instead of an op code when I try to save it. I think this was the reason I originally got a few run time errors when I was first using the sheet.

I'm unable to reproduce this :/
I'll be adding it to the bug list though.

Well, if you can't figure that out yourself, explaining this to you would be a LOT more trouble than just doing it ourselves... and you can see yourself how many requests in this topic have been fulfilled.


But I'm sure Emmy would be happy to help you with that.

Actually, the game reserves a certain amount of slots for each team.

Let's say you can have up to 4 units in your 1-2 squads, 4 slots will be reserved for your squad units, and the 5 remaining will be used for ENTD units. It will never use more. Even if you only pick Ramza for the fight, you will still be limited to 5 ENTD spritesheet slots.

Also, in pSX you can just press F12 to take screenshots. They are added to the screenshots folder inside your pSX folder.
