Yeah it would be a pain in the ass, especially for me. :roll:

As for the stone glow graphic, I have no idea why but it won't appear unless it is on the same panel as a unit. (I was using a modified Diamond Strike to test)
Effects that weren't normally supposed to be used during battle lack to show damage.

That's IIRC...

Multiply ALL evasion with themselves. If you got 2 weapons, sum them: that's the only exception.

Main gauche is 30% right?

WP Ev./C Ev.

34% hit on front
40% hit on side
100% hit on back

Well I never thought it was actually used as a name in English. but I can tell for sure that in French Jean is guys exclusive. Jeanne for girls. They sound surprisingly different though.

The spell rofl cast before dying.

I got it, I also got Altima's End of the World which is literally funny to use because it will completely destroy the map. =D
Sadly there doesn't seem to be that much unused effect files and most (if not all) are only little. Nothing Catchy.

When I make my patch, I'm going to give Rafa's stone power for sure. 100% Revive with her Zodiac Stone. XD

However some are buggy to use in battle. Animations like the Zodiac Stone's glow can appear UNDER the terrain's map for no apparent reason.

It was odd too to give a full recharge of electricity to a bomb and see it becoming red of heat. :P

I'll still have to double check like 50 Effects because I'm not sure what they are or just can't tell when I know I have already seen them.

Well in any case I checked the 256 first effects and found 3-4 weird fast attack effects, Altima's teleportation, summon demon/angel. No Dejeon yet. :?

Ah, thanks. I thought I'll have to rip all of them one by one one day to guess which effect is which ability.

Since he already listed a lot, I could even find out where abilities are assigned their effect file. And that would mean...  8)

Uh, I'll have to look into that. I doubt the monster flag is used only for that. Y'know, you might not be able to change job with that character after that. ;/

« on: September 30, 2007, 04:00:11 AM »
Required Tools:
Hex Editor ( ; pass is fft)
Excel 2000 or higher
Analyst Toolpak (found on the site if you don't have it already)
CD Mage Beta (

To Patch:
- Make all the modifications you want to make in Excel. If auto-calculation is manual, go in
Tools/Options.../Calculation/ and press "calc now".
- Select the given area called "Hex ASCII" in the "END" sheet. Copy it.
- Open notepad and paste the data. Save with any name you wish (let's call it file X).
- Open the Hex Editor, then open your newly saved file & the file to patch with it (let's call it file Y).
// 0x64 is an example of a number in HEX. During the following procedures, don't type the "0x"; you'll simply get an error.
- Take file X and go in
Search/Replace Hex Values
Search for: 0x0D0A
Replace with: <Empty field>
Press OK, then Yes.
- Press Ctrl + R and select Hex ASCII -> Binary.
- Select all data (Ctrl+a or Edit/Select All). and copy it.
- Now take file Y and select the corresponding byte depending on your file:
for SCUS_942.21 (US version): 0x4F3F0
for SLPS_007.70 (JP version): 0x4C744
- Press Ctrl + B then click OK in the message box.
- Save

To Insert back the file using CD Mage Beta:

Open CD Mage Beta.
Open your ROM Image.
Right click on the corresponding file, click Import... and track down your file you just saved. It might be a good idea to keep an original copy of your file.

Byblos' Shock yes, Beowulf's Shock no.

We can only select abilities from 0x00 to 0xFF that means no monster ability, no Shock (which is x100 and COMPLETELY not together with the rest of its skillset), no limit.

Ovelia -> Draclau
Simon + Agrias -> Rafalak

rofl battle at orbonne with 11 lvl99 Arc Knights Delitas

Maps being completely fucked up by my testing and more...

I'll give it a try. 10 files, 60% blizzard, 35% carve model, and rest for 3 other tiles.

However Bed Desert had 18 files... >_>

So it's a pretty complex map in terms of structure. :/

However it might be as you said, it's just that it would load the tiles withing the map files.

The only tiles I can recall that look exactly the same are the Darkness and tutorial tiles though.

My guess is more that each panel graphic is made of 32*32 nibbles or 512 bytes; With a 16 colors palette.

If it was stored like you suppose, we would have one big file (or many) containing all the terrains graphics, which is not the case.

Each map had 1 to 41 files anyway.

Yeah... I suppose I could add the a simplified version of the join date next to the postcount.

Like [09/16/07]

But not now, working on maps. =o
