Is there any way to "Fix" this?

Yes, but it's a formula hack so not top of the stack.

Quote
1) Make certain skills require percentages of MP instead of a straight value of MP.
2) Immolation Status: deals fire damage to self and those around the immolated.
3) Minimum range editing for skills and weapons alike.

1) Percentages of current MP? Max MP? Can't deny I do want this one myself and it doesn't sound undoable.
2) a lot of work for something specific to a single patch
3) not sure what you mean

I wanted to remove the Dragon Target requirement of her skills (also nerfing and putting some costs to them).

This is a formula edit so again it's low priority. I know having rigid formulas is tough but if I ever touch this stuff it's going to be by doing a flexible editor, every single patch needs its own one-offs.

when you choose "New Game" it skips all the introduction stuff (text overlay intro, name insert, birthdate, opening movie)

I really want this but it involves wading through a lot of system calls and other Complicated Stuff. I'm not giving up, though - I would like to learn about the kernel anyway.

*Base Raw Stat/Zodiac selection on something other than gender and species.

That is interesting, since as you note they seem pointless at present, especially monster preraw. But stuff even the requester isn't interested in using isn't a high priority.
Bad code, beware! The NOPs are coming to eat you!

As efficient a system as Raven and I managed to design, I will tell you this:
1) For virtually every generalized patch, you'll create far more features than needed.
2) The more basic mechanical aspects (XA modification) are always easier to code than the smaller things (proc status/knockback).
3) Other people always generate crazier ideas than you do.
4) If you want a flexible editor not in ASM, you need a scripting language and those eat up large amounts of space.

In my own patches, I only code what I need, rather than code extra material.  If it weren't for the fact MIPS is not anyone's native language, I'd rather abandon the idea of a generalized hack altogether, and make specific ASMs for specific patches.  If I really wanted to make it custom, I'd do what I did for weapons, put all the possible XA variants used in FFT in one routine and branch accordingly within the routine (while using the free space to create novel XA).  My hack would set the branches to vanilla's default, but that would be editable by spreadsheet (think of my weapon formula editor).  That's always better than a scripting language, I think.

3) brings up another point.  You'll never be done, and too often your brainstorming sessions will yield features of increasingly little use, but you then stumble across a gem that forces you to remake your implementation.  The result is an ever larger hack with increasingly less organization.  Personally, if I had to use massive table space because I exceeded all the known free bytes in ability and weapon data space, then I'd know that my hack went too far.  In such a case, it would be better to make a weapon formula hack-style spreadsheet with X features out of Y total, done in mix-and-match style.  The addresses for branches should be calculated by the spreadsheet.
For example, we could have DEX/STR/CON/INT/CHA/DEF, but I think it's reasonable to assume if someone wanted a hack like that, they wouldn't need PA/MA/SP, so instead of branching out to free space, I'd just modify the existing stats that become redundant under such a model.  Thus, there should be no reason for such a hack to have its own "dedicated" spot in Kanji space; instead, it would override any other mutually exclusive features, leaving it up to the user to pick which collection of hacks he wants.  (Yes, I'm aware this means you can't have lots of extra numbers on your screen and you can't be as "specific", but usually it's only the ASMers and hardcore D&D players who even want such systems; most people get really confused trying to remember what 10 different numbers do, especially if some of them have only tangential relevance).

1) Max MP
2) Just an idea, thought someone might like it.
3) It would be nice to apply minimum range from bows/guns/crossbows to skills, as well as being given the ability to change what the minimum range value is.

Monkey Grip will likely bug out in Equip Change if I recall my notes correctly. There is a section in BATTLE.BIN you will need to edit as well, similar to the parts in WORLD.BIN. An easy check would be to equip someone with Monkey Grip and no offhand, and see what happens in battle.

Yeah, you are 100% correct Equip Change will screw up. I neglected that because I hate Equip Change but at some point it needs doing.

Ideas for hacks:
*Every time Blade Grasp triggers, reduce Brave by (n).
*Every time any Reaction dependent on Brave triggers, reduce Brave by (n).
*A new reaction: Every time you take HP damage from a faith-based ability, or you are dealt a negative status by a faith based ability, reduce faith by (n).

FYI, the only reason I'm "not interested" in seeing the hacks I previously mentioned (the pre-raw stats are random ones, as well as attaching things to zodiac signs) is because I have no time to use them.  Had I time, I would totally use the shit out of them.  So, while they are back-burner material for sure, please don't dismiss them entirely.

I'm curious... with the hack to edit the failure rate of Teleport past the unit's move... is there a way to display the range of Teleport?  What i'm thinking is only allowing 100% chance in range and 0% beyond.  Essentially using it much like Fly, but with the Teleport animation.  I don't want the entire screen covered with selectable spaces, when i can only go so far.  Possible?

My name is Atma... I am pure energy... and as ancient as the cosmos.

Random Thought: I was just talking with BP, and he said that TO - LUCT for the PSP has the the feature I'm gonna mention.

Currently, how far you move has no bearing on the amount of the CT penalty movement has.  That is, if you move, you won't get the +20 CT bonus.  But what if how far you move, in relation to the total range in which you can move, somehow influences the amount of bonus CT you get?

Like, if you have 10 move, and you move 1 square, then you have only used 10% of your total movement range, and, as such, you should get 90% of the Movement CT Bonus, which means you'd get 18 bonus CT.

I'm not sure it'd be a good idea, since the AI is already stupid enough, and it would give the player another exploit, but still, it sounds awesome.  What do you think of it?

I'm using your inherent rsm hack right now and I noticed a (really) minor inconsistency. With vanilla's inherent abilities like item throw on chemist if you have item throw equipped and swap your job over to chemist, the game automatically unequips item throw. With any of the ones you do using this they'll stay equipped though. Figured I might as well let you know since I'm using it lol.

Thanks for working on these btw, I'm using a few of your other asms and they all work great.

About previewability for the new item attributes: the routine that generates the stuff you see in menus doesn't "read" the actual item attributes, does it?  Or you don't know where the "preview" routine is?

Couldn't help but notice...

0012313c: 00441021 addu r2,r2,r4      ID * 3
00123140: 000210c0 sll r2,r2,0x03     ID * 18 24
00123144: 00441021 addu r2,r2,r4      ID * 19 25

There are 25, not 19, bytes in each Item Attributes entry (0x642c4), so this would make sense. Coincidentally (or maybe not) 25 = 0x19, which could be where the 19 came from?

Edit - Actually, I think SA just listed the 18/19 as hex without any prefix at all... that probably wasn't even a mistake. I think he's just becoming a robot or something. :)

So the problem with previewability is telling it to treat the new item attribute table the same as the old one?

ASM Request:

Choose job at Soldier office?

I am looking to make totally distinct branches of jobs to avoid jp sharing issues, but that requires me to start a character on specific jobs.

Use RAD instead. RAD can allow you to add maximum level job requirements aka "less than level" job requirments. Lets say you want three specific branches: Warrior, Mage, and Thief. Each character will start only with access to Freelancer. The other 3 classes require level 2 in Freelancer to unlock. What more you'll need to set them to require less than level 2 for the other two classes.

Example:

Warrior requires: 1 Freelancer, "Less Than" 2 Thief, and "Less Than" 2 Mage.
Mage requires: 1 Freelancer, "Less Than" 2 Thief, and "Less Than" 2 Warrior.
Thief requires: 1 Freelancer, "Less Than" 2 Warrior, and "Less Than" 2 Mage.

What happens is that when you level up your Thief to level 2 you'll lose access to the Warrior and the Mage class permanently. The Freelancer part is pretty much a necessity though. You can't set job requirements for the Squire, so it can never truly go away. You could however drop it from the requirements if you want to have a branch that all characters can access.

The only problem with that is bleedover jp locking your classes unintentionally. Even if you get your desired tree to begin with, bleedover jp will still affect the units and eventually shut down the last tree too, leaving you with nothing.

Alternatively a hack to turn off bleedover jp per class could work.
