Has my 'Importing Custom Formation Sprites and Portraits [Warning! Image Heavy Post!]' tutorial been obsoleted? If not, you might add it to the list and then delete this post.

I... I could've sworn that it was in both this one and important links... I'll add them tomorrow along with Xif's new tutorial, if Raven doesn't see this and beat me to it by then.

    I miss tutorials about text editing. I'm talking about Non-Event text. FFTactext can do the most, but not all are recognized, even if FFTactext could technically edit them (shop, memory card, naming screen > all in WOLRD.BIN) and all text which is a bitmap. Some can be found with ShishiSpriteEditor (just those, that will displayed inside a battle), but it's by far not all (starting screen [New game, Continue etc.], the name of places directly on the worldmap, all menu text bitmaps like "Exp", "Lv", "Menu" etc. and some more I think.

    Is there any guide and I just missed it? Or is there any thread where I can ask for, as an example, further FFTactext development (I would post offsets etc.) or the same for ShishiSpriteEditor?

    For the missing text in FFTactext, I would translate them just with an HexEditor and a table file, but my head explode as soon as I think about DTE. It's a great thing that FFTactext just generate it and you don't have to mess with it. Without DTE a translation it not really great, because I'm limited to the length of the original English text. I'm translating it to German and FFTactext was a great help so far, but has some missing editable text.

    Yeah I thought that as well. Tactext is just for text editing, bitmaps with Shishi (which have text as well). I think both would need a bit more development to complement the missing stuff. Especially for translations. Problem for me would be to decompress and recompress bitmaps just by my bare hands. ^^ Even if there are informations on where to find them, I'm not such ASM geek or something.

    You guys should add Conman's "Basic Frankein-Spriting with GraphicsGale"  http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=11236.0

    I definitely found it useful

    There are a lot of thing that could be added to this list :o
    I can't edit this post myself (I guess my help moderating powers do not extend to the Help subsections), but I could get someone else to for this, and any others you might find around that aren't there! :)

    Updated with CONMANs 'Basic Franken-Spriting Tutorial' by CONMAN as well as a tutorial on how to edit FRAME.BIN by BigManStan.

    Thank you both very much for your contribution to the community!

    Do you have any?

    I'd gladly add them if they existed. However, I do not have the voice nor the confidence for creating youtube videos. Just the two that I made for eventing about 5 years ago was huge amounts of anxiety for me

    The tutorial for the opening text crawl ("My name is Alazlam" etc.) is not correct; as far as I can tell, unless you do heavy ASM editing you can simply use the default text height and width as the guideline, and it reads each line of text in order from top to bottom.

    If the file size doesnt match then you didnt do it correctly. Her video tutorial shows you exactly how to do this by adding zero bytes via a hex editor. You cannot skip a part of the tutorial and expect it to work.

    There is no way to do this automatically, this is stuff you HAVE to learn if you want to mod, since this is about the simpliest of the simple stuff there is. It's only going to get more difficult from here, (unless you plan to just use FFTP to change some job stuff or something, which a 5 year old could do)
