cdmage/test.evt step causing game to freeze
« on: May 02, 2018, 04:55:06 PM »
I have play tested my entire patch all the way up to the bed desert boss fight.. The main purpose of my patch was to make most of the boss fight conditions "defeat all enemies" including the Bed Desert fight vs Balk. I have not seen any major glitches or bugs until this fight and I cannot seem to figure out what is going wrong other than the fact I know it has to do with the step involving the test.evt and cdmage.

There is nothing added into this event thats special.. all I did was change the "display conditions" part so it would show the defeat all enemies screen, but the event wont even get that far.
This is where it freezes every time, right after everyone gets poisoned and kneels down:
The music keeps playing but nothing ever happens on screen

Even when I extract a fresh test.evt from an original iso and just add 1 random custom event in(doesn't even have to be the bed desert event).. this bed desert fight will still freeze at the same spot, so the problem cant be the bed desert battle event right?

not sure if this will help...Bed Desert event:

I tried this with 1.91 easyvent.. until i saw there was a new version out.. so i went into 2.0, made a new custom event for the bed desert boss fight, compiled it in and imported with cdmage and it still freezes.

I have completely hit a wall with this, any help would be much appreciated.

I think some text is missing from what you posted.  I think this post will fix your issue with this scene.  I vaguely remembered reading that a few basic events in evsp were incorrect.

CONMAN is correct, you're missing text strings.

ChangeDialog goes all the way to x000E, but your last message is x0008... you're missing 6 messages.
Code: [Select]
ChangeDialog(x02,x000E,x00,x00)
