Help! / Proposition Hack
« on: June 05, 2016, 09:01:46 AM »

I have been recently been trying to get my head around Xif's proposition hack. I have essentially followed the guide as outlined, but I am coming unstuck somewhere and I was wondering if I could get some guidance. (all pictures are below)

I set up my patcher in the below pictures, with my ENTD being linked to the Attack.out. Funnily enough, the Proposition (mark) doesn't happen in chapter 1, but does in Chapter 2.

I then have set up the event as seen below. I have used Reis's curse (setup) for the time being. I used Elric's guide from the event editing page.

I then use Raven's Attack.Out editor, to set up the conditions of the battle and what is needed. Its linked to 01DB just like in the ENTD.

I then use Pokey's gameflow editor as I tried the Xif's one but it kept on crashing on me (my fault no doubt!!), essentially the code for the Gariland is;

01006030020019006E8010100 (If I was using Xifs one, where would I put this code, would it go below all of the other? Above?)

I am just concerned that Pokey's doesn't allowed for the swirl, or I might be missing something. (should the 0020 byte, be something different? 1 or a 3? I am unsure!

At the end of all of this, what happens is; I go to Gariland, do the proposition. Leave the city, come back. It loads with Byblos standing at the graveyeard, but it loads the Orbonne Prayer dialogue instead of my dialogue scene and then continues on to the Orbonne battle. (which to be fair is quite amusing!!)

I was wondering if I could have some help with this. (I also have been warned about the general bugginess of Pokey's and Raven's work, as well. If there is anything else I need to clarify, please let me know.

Kind regards,

Help! / ASM help
« on: January 04, 2016, 05:53:15 PM »
Edit. It's meant to say ASM help!! Stupid fat fingers [Changed the topic name for you. -Toshiko]


Just need a bit of help understanding the below ASAP

<Patch name="Speed Boost">
Boosts Speed by 1
<Location file="BATTLE_BIN" offset="4d0a8">
<Location file="BATTLE_BIN" offset="EC000">

Does this mean when Ignore Height is equipped that I will get 1 speed?
I have had a look at the document.txt file as well. I tried changing the 93 to 8f and 02 to 80 so it would use equip armour. I just wanted to know if I was on the right track.
Thanks in advance.

PSX FFT Hacking / ALMA Material
« on: October 31, 2015, 12:18:11 PM »

I have started to play around with pokeytax's ALMA spreadsheet. I thought I would post what I am working on just in case someone has the same ideas as myself.

I am working on the Skillsets tab of  ALMA 4.2 and I have given the Dagger the ability to use the USE HAND skillset, which hopefully means that you can attach most skillsets (I know that Throw, Item, Elemental and Iadio don't work) to items. I just need to look at the mainstream ones to see in terms of abilities learnt and what not. If you have a look at the variuables, it can do more thyatn this.

Plain and simple.
1) Click on the Skillset tab of ALMA
2) Make Comparison EQUAL TO 
3)Choose your aspect (I have gone for right hand) could be head etc, there are many variables to play with!
4)Choose your weapon, accessory etc to which you want the skillset attached to (in this case dagger, purely for testing purposes!)
5)Choose the skillset that you want attached to it

6) Then go to the XML tab and scroll down to skillset (I have this as another png file), make sure you copy from patch name all the way down to /patches. Copy this into an existing xml document that you might have following the correct protocols and rename.
7) Place this into the same folder as orgASM

And voila that its it. I have tested it this without any other ASM's, as ALMA has a reputation of being buggy!

If there any issues, please don't hesitate to post back. I am not the expert that Pokeytax, Choto or Celdia might be, but I will endeavour to help and I am in the process of learning as well.

Kind regards


New Project Ideas / FFX-2 FFT
« on: May 28, 2015, 02:10:34 PM »
Hello All,

I have been working on a FFX-2 patch (one of my favourite FF games!) for quite a while and now I need it testing, so if anyone is up for it that would be great. I have played the game a few times but my style of play is different, so some feedback on abilities, monsters, anything and everything would be great. There are all of the classes that you would expect to find from the game (Gunner, Thief etc) with most of their abilities from the game, you can have a look at the Excel document that I have also attached.
There are still quite a few things to do, change to text wise (ward/proof, job description's and a few other things that I might have overlooked)
There are still plenty of things that I want to do, like the archer, ninja, geomancer and lancer, but they will be in a subsequent upgrade. Playing with the growths of some Gaf and Izulde, sorting out some of the mantles powers, the list goes on...

Most aspects of the game have been changed, I lost my tactext file a while ago, so I hope that everything is fine.

All of the best,


Edit: For some reason the server isn't liking me upload my ppf file, so give me a moment to sort it out. Apologies!!

Help! / ENTD Clarification
« on: May 17, 2015, 09:18:15 AM »
Good Morning,

I would like some ENTD clarification. I am sorting out the random battles for my patch. Dolbodar East 1, for example, does not appear as a place to go in Chapter 1. So, if I was to change the ENTD for it, does this impact in my game at all? Is it just a 'dud' level and has no consequence at all. I am unsure at the moment.

Kind Regards,


Help! / Arrow Guard Blocks Gunshots
« on: February 19, 2015, 03:28:22 PM »
Good Afternoon,

I know that FDC did a hex edit of this;
Arrow Guard now blocks gunshots.
0x126128 change 0xF5 to 0xF6
0x12612C change 0x02 to 0x03

and that there has also been this thread before;

I was wondering if anyone could help me and place it in ASM format, so I could add it to the OrgASM. It is brutally obvious that I couldn't HexEdit my way out of a paperbag.

Thanking you in advance,

Help! / Formula List on Wiki
« on: January 03, 2015, 09:17:08 AM »
I was wandering if anyone could help me? I am looking for all of the different formulas that the game has and what abilities use them. Once upon a time it used to be on the wiki and now it has disappeared. Have I missed it and now it's somewhere else? Or is it still there and I am afflicted with darkness!!
Cheers Argy

Help! / Mix Command
« on: October 04, 2014, 11:16:30 AM »
Hi All,

Just wandering if this is possible. I have currently put the Item Synthesis Shop in my hack and I am loving it. (Thanks Xif) I was wondering if it could be done as a command like it is in FFX. Basically, I mix Potion + Potion = Hi Potion. I am sure you are limited by room etc, but it was just a thought.

Cheers Argy

Help! / Event Editing Issue
« on: May 30, 2014, 11:27:54 AM »
Hi All,

I am having a problem with the 'Back Gate of Lesalia' Event. The one where Alma and Ramza talk and then Zalmo enters!! The problem is that at the start, the door opens, and the camera pans to where Alma and Ramza should be but unfortunately they don't move there. The rest of the event plays out well as well.
I have tried changing the SpriteMvmt r values as well to match the x values in 1.91 but to no avail. So I am at a loss

When it comes to the actual battle. Both Ramza and Alma are on the same square and they cant move!! Its a weird brother sister fusion.

I have included the patch as Ramza has a wall spell that kills everyone. Helps me with the speed of the game and looking a the text!!

Here is the code

I am using EVSP 1.5!! Old school, I know!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As an added bonus, you get to have a peek at my undead/demon story hack....

Cheers Argy

Help! / Equip X Hack
« on: April 09, 2014, 08:55:17 AM »
Hi All,


I was wandering if anyone can help me. I have tried implementing the Equip X hack for my patch, without any success. Essentially,  I want Equip Armour to include a shield as well. Which means that I have set EQA 3 to 19 (10 + 8 + 1) (Shield, Helm and Armour) but I seem to be having no luck whatsoever. I am using a clean ISO and FFTOrgASM v0.482. I was wandering if anyone else has encountered the same problem or if there is a fix or is just me!

I can get it working using Raven's Spreadsheet but unfortunately in then crashes on my phone and hence wanted to use FFTOrgASM instead.

Cheers Argy

Help! / Spare R/S/M's
« on: March 02, 2014, 01:41:44 PM »
I have just been looking through the abilities in the wiki and I have noticed that there are spare spot in between Counter and Distribute (01BB). Are there any ASM's that have accounted for that spot?

Also there are some movement ones as well (01F1, 01FE, 01FF) that aren't utilised. have these been "made" into anything else?

Which leads to Silent Walk, can we do anything with this?

Cheers Argy

Help! / Importing sprite issue
« on: June 23, 2013, 07:22:00 PM »

I hope that someone can help me. I have imported the FFT Arena knight into my iso via SHISHI .482 as a bmp. The top half is fine but the part has all lines and no pictures of my knight. This is also true for the white mage as well.
Does anyone know how to overcome rhis problem? Apologies for no uploaded picture.

Cheers Argy

Help! / Another EVSP question
« on: May 30, 2013, 03:48:09 PM »

I have got the hang of changing text within the game. Now, for Mandalia Plains there are 8 or so different events and i think they more or less all have the same text. Do i change just the one (Mandalia Plains) or do i have to make changes in all of them?

Is it then a case of copying and pasting the text into each one of the different events?

Thanking you in advance
