Oh definately, and I thank you for the interest and this isn't to say you should stop. We actually have a mark ideas thread and will be using many of them in coming chapters, so I'd love to hear some more of your ideas!

As I mentioned, I'm 99% sure that your ISO is the culprit (BIN/ISO/IMG is all the same thing, format doesn't matter). The fact that it works before patch also doesn't matter. I've seen this issue many times and I suggest you find another image file in some way and try that.

As said before, this is NOT the first time this EXACT issue has happened. Chances are that is has nothing to do with your computer or emulator, but instead is an issue with the image and/or how it is patching. We have LPs of people playing JotF on Mac, so that is not the issue...

While the idea is okay, there are some issues why this won't work.

First, as I mentioned, sprites. Sprites are very hard to come by lately, as is the space needed for them. And before I could ask any spriter to make something like that, I would need them to finish out what is left for the rest of the actual storyline first. Of which there is still a bit.
Another issue I see is the mention of the stones. Something like that would be out of the question for a mark, since, being this is a mod of FFT, we will likely use them as a story device at some point (be it big or small)

You mention Ganon being there as a boss for Link, and the fact that others may be as well, but this further pushes the idea away from being a mark, as marks are optional.

Again the idea isn't bad, but any ideas that actual require new sprites have a slim to none chance of being made. If i myself could sprite, it wouldn't be a problem, but I can't. So it would have to be someone else who can match Twinees quality (LOL) and even then, that doesn't solve the issue of needing more sprite space.

There are several other reasons why this won't work. However I cannot delve into that yet as Ch2 has not come out yet  :mrgreen:

I would much rather see Vergil make an appearance than Dante 2.0

We normally run into this issue when there is some sort of problem with the Vanilla image being used (doesn't mean it won't work, just means Jot5 doesn't like it) Most people no longer have an issue after using a different image file.

You could also see if it runs on a different emulator like pSX (aka PSXFin) just to ensure that it's not emulator related.

Also, Whoa! I knew you were around Elric, but I didn't expect you to show up and try to help solve this problem in the same day.

Lol, I try.

Well, the story of Jot5 already exists. I wrote it about 14 years ago or so when I was in highschool, though it has changed quite a bit and been added to, but the key points all do exist already.

Something like that could work as a string of marks, however we are limited on sprite space so I don't know that I'd use 2-4 sprites for 1 string of marks.

I thought DmC was okay for what it was, but to me it just didnt have the charm that the first and third games in the series had. Something about the first game just feels so good when you play it.

The Last Remnant isn't great and certainly doesn't even begin to come close to Lost Odyssey

Half of the people who were involved in Lost Odyssey also made FFX and worked on prior Final Fantasies. Directed by Sakaguchi, music by Uematsu. It's a Final Fantasy as far as I'm concerned. And the dreams... oh god, the dreams. Elric, back me up on this - the dreams are like, most of the reason why you need to play Lost Odyssey. It's one of the best games ever made, on any platform, any genre. Cannot recommend it enough.

Toshiko is 200% correct. I had completely lost faith in RPGs by late PSX, then Lost Odyssey happened years later and it was completely restored. The care and feeling and detail they put into those dreams still blow me away and I've read them so many times.

I've always stood firm on thinking that Lost Odyssey was a better Final Fantasy game than any actual Final Fantasy game I've played in years. (though I didn't play much at all passed IX)

Seriously, if you haven't played Lost Odyssey, I don't know what you are doing with your life, but you need to rethink your priorities.

Also, did anyone notice that Ramza seemed to be teamed up with AC Cloud for those videos?

I'd be upset if he didn't :P

It's your virus software that's derping out. Asside from the fact that I use magnifixer and got it from this topic, I also just redownloaded it from here and scanned it with 2 different programs and came back with 0 errors, maleware or virus.

I still find it bizarre that he's using a rapier when that weapon type wasn't even in the game. Why not one of the knight swords? The broad, triangle shape is distinctive.

Tell me why he'd be using a Knights Sword when they opted to use his original Ch1 clothing? He is still a Squire at the Academy and being the time period and him of nobel decent, a Rapier actually fits perfectly for a him in a fighting game.

Haha yup, I wanted to make a joke in Jot5 about Link, Snake, Zelda and Ganon all having met before hand in smash bros, but I opted to leave that out :P

Yeah, heard about that quite a while ago. Was stoked on the fact that now every one of the main characters from Jot5 has been in a fighting game :P

Last post in this thread was in 2010.

The OP doesn't have an account here anymore.

3 of the 4 people aren't part of this site anymore.

The only person who is still part of this site last logged in in 2013.

Next time make a new thread for your question please.

The reason I haven't responded back is simply because I only have so much time to play the game. Without a clear way of unlocking things, Im not going to waste time. So Im taking things one step at a time. This is one of many games that I'm in the process of documenting.

You can find their variables/flags on our wiki

You have the debug menu so I have to assume you know what flags are...

I have nothing else to say aside from not understanding how that is a viable emergency plan since it supposedly took over 10 years to sell in the first place and it's existence has been known since that first popped up, but whatever floats your boat.

I don't care if you upload it or not. I, like the others here, just have some real O_o with your reasoning as it doesn't quite make sense. This is coming from a person who has spent just as much money on things that I've shared, so the money bit holds no bearing to my questions nor my inability to understand your reasoning.

What game did you upload to the internet that has disappeared? Out of curiosity.

Its probably cause he's seen the question answered in many other threads in this section. I cannot give an ETA, so his answer isn't exactly wrong. I'll just keep saying soon.

Lots of things are done, and some things aren't done yet. Elaborating any further would include spoilers

I thank you for your interest and kind words though :D
