How to make Wish revive?
« on: August 28, 2018, 11:42:16 PM »
How do you make Wish capable of raising the dead, kind of like Revive does, but preserving the characteristics of Wish, which are sacrificing life. Is it possible to make it also capable of healing alive characters plus reviving?

I used FFTPatcher. In the "Abilities tab", in the "Wish" option, I put "20" inside the "Inflict status", but I still couldn't revive.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry if it was asked before, but I didn't find it.

    You would need to ASM hack the Wish routine as it's not normally capable of applying/canceling a status.  Luckily it should be a fairly simple modification.  For reference, this is the formula in question. 
    Changing the instruction at 0x80186e20 from jr r31 to j 0x80187f24 should do it.

    Glain, would that still allow Normal-Wish to function, or would it then only work on KO'd units?

    Just wondering because I know a lot of ability formulas that affect both HP and status tend to fizzle out if they can't apply or remove the status they're trying for. May as well preempt the next question if Wish is one of those formulas too :P

    Wow! Never tried ASM hacking. It's super difficult!

    It should, although I haven't tested it.  That routine should just add the status infliction/removal to the action.  By contrast, for example, the formula that Raise uses (0x0D) has logic for skipping the healing portion if the status isn't added.

    As I'm still a noob in hacking, I just used Heal and changed the formula to that of Revive's and in the status effect I marked the "Dead" box.

    Thanks for the help. When I get better at it, I'll try again.
