Title: The Lion War 1.04 - DOWNLOAD HERE!
Post by: Elric on September 21, 2019, 10:20:31 PM

Have you ever wanted to see the extra content in War of the Lions, but couldn't stand the slowdown, or the weird, faux old
English speak? Did you ever hear of Japanese content that was cut from the English release of FFT, and wonder why we never got
to see any of it? Do you hate the DEB 'feature' from vanilla? If so, then Final Fantasy Tactics - The Lion War, has you covered!

Finally after years of production and many many scrapped and remade builds, The Lion War is finally available for download!
Featuring all of the extra scenes and battles with De-WotLized speech, intro and opening movies and extra units from War of the Lions,
with the addition of Ashley Riot instead of Luso. You can even get Dark Knights as a generic class in The Lion War!
(Luso will be included in a different version of TLW, to replace Ashley Riot.)

In addition to the above, we've changed up the vanilla sidequest requirements a bit. See the Changelog thread for more info on this.

This is also the first mod to have fully functioning, english sound novels working in game! That's right, no softlocking, or google translate here.
We currently have 3 of the 4 novels, tested and curated over several years, completely functional, and we have a translator working on
getting the 4th one in proper english as well.

This is also the first mod to ever have the translated generic unit quotes added back in for all generic units in the game.
This feature, like the Sound Novels, was dummied out of the english version of the game, and never included in WotL. You can now
click start on any units name in the formation window to see their unique quote.

A lot of work went into making this all function correctly, and for anyone who wants to use TLW as a base for their own FFT mod, resources
will soon be supplied for a full build. We've also saved you ~130 event slots, so you can easily expand upon the story, add marks,
or whatever else you may want to use the space for.

This mod must be patched to an UNEXPANDED .bin/.iso/.img file.
Make sure to read the README.txt (or .nfo) to learn how to install the two ported WotL Movies

As with all initial releases of mods, there will likely be a bug or two lingering. Make sure to post any you find in the Bug Reporting Thread!! (http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=12314.0)

(NOTE: New Game Plus is not yet complete for TLW, as we are perfectionists, and don't like releasing things in a half-arsed manner,
so the initial release will not contain this. A new Roster hack is still in the works as well, which will also be released at a later date.)

Post by: Elric on September 24, 2019, 12:53:07 PM
Thanks guys. I cant wait for this to be done and to start working more on Jot5 again.

While others have been beta testing, ive been organizing and creating batch files for all known Jot5 events we have planned, as well as any blank events so i can easily make batch files for using the offset rewritter as well as the multi-compiler.  Makes it much easier to event via savestate and just drop the event script into the correct spot for compiling, once its done.

The few bugs that exist arent gamebreaking.

After tonight the only remaining bugs will be:
-Barrage graphic issue (does not affect function and will be fixed tomorrow)
-icon for reflect in spell descriptions is currently derped, will be fixed
-Zalera doesnt float.

Sorry, my original post was misleading, because I apparently cannot read a calender. The release was always supposed to be on saturday, not friday (considering i work 2:30pm -11pm during the week) lol. My bad. I'm exhausted from work and need to create 1 final build with last minute fixes, and don't want to miss anything.

I would project somewhere between noon and 2pm (12-14 hours from now) or sooner, depending when I wakeup.

If possible post in the bug reports thread what emulator you are using and attach a savestate and a description of how to trigger the bug. Thanks

I just want to say thank you everyone for all your hard work and efforts. I know this was a ton of work and took SO MUCH of everyone's free time. I really appreciate the efforts and strides made to bring this to completion as far as it could be within the hardware limits.

*cracks knuckles*

Now lets see if I can break it so it can be further polished.  :D

Post by: Elric on October 15, 2019, 01:00:44 AM
Should be as soon as we get the last few bugs worked out. I have a patch version 1.03 coming in a day or two, we will see how that goes.

I dont want to put out resources then have all the resources get bug fixes that people dont want to update to due to them already putting their info into the bugged resources, if that make sense.

Hi there,

Will the Lion War mod have the multiplayer items from WoTL (including Fell Swords)?  Just curious.

Excited to give this a try!
Title: Re: The Lion War 1.03 - DOWNLOAD HERE!
Post by: Elric on October 22, 2019, 01:21:21 AM
Nope. There is no extra space for more items. Which is why you get an existing item from the agrias bday event rather than the lipstick.

The extra items and multiplayer stuff is about the only stuff not added from WotL

Hello there!
Sorry for being late to party.
First of all, congrats Elric and Co., this is a great work you guys have done. Second I have been poking around the patch with Patcher tools and I found you guys made a new formula for Barrage and Ashley skills, I'm eager to know more about that. Finally I've trying to track where can I change the items from the Agrias Birthday and the rescue Reis event. I checked the ENTD but found nothing, perhaps I'm being clueless and the answer is really close.
Along some other stuff I'll wait until the ASM and resources are released from you guys.

In the meantime kudos for the whole team this is most excellent work.

Regards.
Title: Re: The Lion War 1.03 - DOWNLOAD HERE!
Post by: Elric on November 04, 2019, 09:00:56 PM
Heya. So the agrias bday event item is done via event command, and not something you can edit in patcher.

The resources for the mod including the ASMs will be release soon. Just trying to hammer out one last bug for 1.04 and the resources will come out at the same time

EDIT: Was there supposed to be a special item in the reis rescue event? AFAIK, it was just the 2 ribbons you get from the Aliste and Bremondt battles. I know very little about WotL, everything I setup for TLW was based on info on the net and lots and lots and lots of terribad WotL videos that I sat through
Title: Re: The Lion War 1.03 - DOWNLOAD HERE!
Post by: HebrewToYou on November 05, 2019, 10:51:52 PM
I don't believe there's any special Reis Rescue item.
Title: Re: The Lion War 1.03 - DOWNLOAD HERE!
Post by: Nyzer on November 06, 2019, 01:35:25 AM
I honestly just think it's regular War Trophy stuff. I know we didn't make it an event drop; the only one we ever set up was for the birthday event.
Title: Re: The Lion War 1.03 - DOWNLOAD HERE!
Post by: Heisho on November 06, 2019, 04:55:45 AM
Yeah, it is actually War Trophy items when they get to the room she is held captive. If I remember correctly what I saw at the PSP info on the Patcher the units that provide those trophies are hidden in the other side on the room.
The items were: Golden Hairpin (A6), H Bag(76), Sprint Shoes (D5), Diamond Armlet (E0) and Sortilege/Salty Rage (EF)

Amazing to see that there are still things to be done here at FFhackticks. Great job Elric and team. I joined this site in mid 2019 and have been playing alot of patches since then. So glad to find out that there is more coming! I have a question, does this version have the same level of difficulty as the original game? I found myself being so happy to play FF Tactics "Kind Of" because of it having a better level of difficulty and just more balanced in its build. Perhaps this is ment to be a basic version which can be built upon - is that what you usually call "Vanilla"?

Sorry if this is a noob question.  :)

Are there any huge bugs or pending bug fixes for TLW in the near future? Or is it safe to say that 1.03 is the last version for awhile? I'm hoping to kinda start modding it. But I won't start if there's a version 1.04 in the horizon.

I've been wondering the same thing, although it's best to wait for the resources files to be released with 1.04.  That said, I have no idea what the project status is right now, but I'm very much ready for it to be rolled out.

The new posts since last visit doesn't really work for me since my last visit must be 2 years ago or something XD

But thanks for the update Elric! Too late though since I already "customized" by TLW 1.03 with spiffy custom sprites and portraits, boo.

Oh well. Just have to do it all over again lmao.

EDIT: Correction on that. Almost 4 years, since my last post was January of 2016. Whenever I'm itching to play FFT, I'm always led back to this place. For the past decade. Lmao.

EDIT #2: And I just realized you can't just got directly edit The Lion War patched ISO using FFTacText, Shishi, and all other tools without breaking the mod. I just realized it now after I just broke Gaff and Agrias' in-battle Orbonne conversation. A couple of hours work down the drain XD. Serves me right for not reading. I guess I'll be waiting for the 1.04 update then :)

If you've already started editing it, then you've already broken your iso :P

TLW has to be built in a specific order and if you start mucking around without the proper resources, it will 100% crash somewhere or at the very least, the sound novels are going to derp out.

Yeah I just realized that. So I'll be patiently waiting for this weekend so I can start my nth playthrough. Lol. This time with Ashley fucking Riot.

Hope it isn't too difficult for amateur modders to build TLW with edits. All I intend to do are custom sprites, change a few job names and descriptions, and add a few skills to Ramza's ch2-3 and ch4 jobs.

Thanks for doing this! excited!
