Shishi will show you all the animations you want and highlight each part that it uses with a yellow rectangle... that's how you know. Making a FFT sprite is about viewing the animations in Shishi to make sure it looks good, and edit the sprite bmp itself in the sprite editing program of your choice.

This is what the inside of a proper .cue file looks like... just change the filename accordingly.

Code: [Select]
FILE "FINAL_FANTASY_TACTICS_US.BIN" BINARY
   TRACK 01 MODE2/2352
      INDEX 01 00:00:00

...you know that M2/2352 CDs are all stored the same way whether they're .ISO, .BIN./.cue and .IMG, right? Just renaming your FFT Image file to .iso should do the trick. If it doesn't, that's one hell of a picky program.

EDIT: You can just mount a .BIN and rip an .ISO if it doesn't work

But hey, it doesn't work. All I have to say to fdc is:


Because it's an enormous endeavor of astronomical proportions, and with how easy it is with Chotokukyan and SecondAdvent's documentation on the wiki to create custom formulas, I just don't see a point to doing so.

Yeah, here it costs 24 bucks to send a package to the neighbor town, but you can get shit as big/heavy with free shipping for 1 buck coming all the way from China. Fuck us, right?

That's Canada for you. $23.95 for my location as well.

So, I'm guessing you never got anything out of this huh. Because I could really use that stuff right now.
And C++ and VBA... but at this point I'd prefer C++. :v

Error Detection Code (EDC) is 4 bytes, it's the CRC.
Error Correction Code (ECC), if present, is 276 bytes... using  Reed–Solomon error correction (which uses Galois arithmetic), probably.

Might've found something here, but it still hurts my brain: https://schifra.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#schifra_crc.hpp
I'm still extremely new to C++.

Better resolution? No. It's stretched more and you lose more details.
16:9 is better than 4:3 I'll give you that (even if they destroyed graphics in the process)
O is confirm and X is cancel on the PSX too... is there any version that it's not?
ASM hacking is the least of your concerns for a project like this. I don't see how it would be needed at any point... ever.

If you want to cut the block, you're going to need tools for that. You need to make those tools first.

EDIT: Oh, btw, of the ~12 people who wanted to translated the game we've had here on FFH, one was German, one for another language (can't remember), and all the others wanted to translated WotL to Portuguese. It still hasn't happened.

2. US PSX

3. There is no way to do that right now (and probably ever). I made an excel sheet that generates bytes for a single character, but that's all it does so I haven't release it to the public. You can use stuff like Tile Molester I guess, but personally I hate that program and can't really help on that because I'm not all that familiar with it... I THINK it has export/import functions though.

4. Event Script? If you mean changing the font colour, or changing the printing speed, or adding selectable options, then yes, otherwise I don't know what you mean.

5. I've googled before and there are websites with a ton of the game's text in Japanese. Even if you can't get the Japanese text through tactext, it would be a good start. And yes, there is a font width table for the Japanese version; even if there's only 2 out of 2200 characters that have a width different than 10px (0x0A). If you hex search for a lot of 0x0A in a row, you should find it easily enough.

You might cry and abandon your project because of Tactext. I'm not sure if the best version for it works that flawlessly, but I've heard plenty of horror stories... Spending hours and hours trying to make it work, and still no go.

If you're going to use Tactext, you should really use my FFTText Editor as well: http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=11204
...if that would even work with a .ffttext generated from the WotL version; I don't know.

Either way, you'll have to figure a lot of things on your own. That's what we have. Just about no one here hacks WotL because we just think it's an inferior version. If you insist on using it, well, good luck to you.

2. That's what the "Character Length" is.

3. That's what the "Charater Graphic" is. http://ffhacktics.com/font.png

4. FFT Uses pointers for sections of text, but no, not for individual strings.

5. It seems you're going to translate the game anyway. Why would you care about the Japanese version? Do you know Japanese better than you do English?

Actually, ever since this topic was made, someone posted the answer in here. This very topic. One of the 101 existing messages.

Since I got permission from Elric and everyone else in the team is fine with revealing who the Cloaked Stranger is,
I'll reveal it in 3 days.

Yeaaaaaah, you really don't want to be using that hack. It messes with the AI hardcore. I'm not sure what exactly Kisesaur wants, but my hack isn't buggy while Razele's is. Both our hacks have a goal of always enabling the 4th monster ability without the need to be close to another unit, much less one with Monster Skill.

Also the newer version of the Generic Skillset Fix is called Skillset Behaviours: http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=953.0

« on: June 21, 2016, 08:44:13 PM »
I figure another thing. Plenty of video game are not very emotional; if at all. They're just boring.
But I figured video game moments that could have been developed into something emotional or building up to something very emotional and then RUINED are worth mentioning too. I added some to my first post.

The Lounge / Most emotional video game moments & Ruined ones
« on: June 21, 2016, 01:07:53 PM »
I'd like to see what everyone thinks about which games have the strongest emotional moments... scenes that you can't help but cry every damn time.
Quite a few games have pretty emotional moments, but for a few reasons I somehow can't get myself emotionally involved; I don't understand why I block that way, it's like I can't take the game seriously or something.

My list of most emotional video games moments

Legend of Mana

Valkyrie Profile

Grandia

Unfortunately, these are the only ones I can think of right now... but those first two are always the ones I go back to if I need a powerful emotional release.


My list of worst ruined moments

Final Fantasy IV

Disgaea

Use any format you want, but do use spoilers.
