    I see where it allows you to name the tiamats themselves a diffrent race but not for just that encounter

    If you check several story battles or story events, you can see generic humans/monsters with their unique name, like Rad, Lavian, Alicia, that Archaic Demon in the battle protecting Dragon Reis and so on. The field should be obvious then.

    If you are using FFTPatcher v. 492 you can assign a specific name to any enemy in any given battle. 


    I'll assume that you have already created a .fftpatch file for the purpose of what follows.
    Step 1: Open FFTPatcher (I am using version 492)

    Step 2: Select file > open patch... > select your .fftpatch file

    Step 3: Select the ENTD tab

    Step 4: Find the ENTD entry that contains the unit that you wish to give a specific name to.

    Step 5: Select the Unit that you wish to give a specific name

    Step 6: Below "Sprite Set" should be "Name"... Select the name you wish to use from the drop down list. 

    Now... I'm pretty sure you're thinking to yourself something along the lines of "The names listed are not what I want to use" or at least something along those lines.  Well I have good news and bad news...  The good news is that some of those options can be altered without much impact on the base game.  The bad news is that modifying them will require using FFTactext. 

    Since your version mod tag isn't showing up I'm not certain if you are making changes to the psx or psp version of the game.  If you are editing the psp version you will want to use FFTactext version 457 for stability reasons.  Also, you will need to make the edits for fixing the "crystal crash bug" and the "found item name error bug"...  If you are editing the psx version ask Xif or someone else for which version is best. 
    Note: if you have selected a version mod tag and it is not displaying in your posts you can fix it by simply creating a signature with anything in it.  My original sig for example was "yeap" simply to force the tag to display. 

    My recommendation atm for creating custom names of your own choosing is to replace the names of the mooks you slaughter in the first Orb. Monastery fight.  Then to prevent the mooks from having your potentially awesome custom names simply set the name field for those units in the ENTD to be "Random".  The first Orb. Monastery fight is entry "183" in the ENTD.  Also, keep track of which names you changed to what using FFTactext so that you wont have to go back in to refresh your memory later.
    Note: Unit names can be found under:
    1.  Text > BOOT.BIN[29E334] > 2: Unit names
    2.  Text > OPEN.LZW > 9: Unit names
    Make sure that any changes you do are reflected in both locations.  Also, Random names begin around 256 I believe. 

    'Ramza', if you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to post them.   

    @ everyone else, if I missed a step or was mistaken about this PLEASE post a correction.
