Minor visual bug:

It seems I didn't put down enough Wait time after BlueRemoving Caazan in Be a Beta, and the game doesn't wait for it to finish before returning to battle. If Caazan had the next turn, he and his stat window will briefly appear on screen before the BlueRemoval finishes. This confused the real Caazan for a minute when he finally killed himself.

Should probably update that Wait(00010) to Wait(00045) or something.

This issue is not related to TLW. If you added anything on top of it, its out of my hands at that point.

So, after reports of the issue on regular TLW, and a provided save file, I did some digging. This is is likely an issue because your Ramzas have names that are less than five letters long.

When the dialogue boxes auto-close, it's after waiting for a space bar to be printed, giving players time to actually finish reading the dialogue. However, printing it makes an audible text printing sound as it closes. I tried to get clever and wait for the dialogue to ALMOST finish printing, then mute the text printing sound.

So I put a check on the variable that reports how many letters have been printed, and waits for it to reach the very end of the dialogue.

Then I tested it... with Ramza named Ramza. 45 letters of dialogue.

If Ramza's name is four letters long, the game sees 44 letters printed. And then it just keeps waiting.

The best short term fix I can think of, if you don't know how to edit/replace events with the Resources build, would be to use a save file editor (or maybe some kind of gameshark code?) to change Ramza's name for this one battle.

If you're comfortable with uploading your memory card file and can mention which slot your Balthier save is, I can also just toss in some half-spaces and send it back - it'll look normal in most cases, except maybe when a character actually says Ramza's name out loud.

yes, needs to be at least 5 characters with the current build.

I've tested this event at all speeds and with a completely blanked out name. Seems to work fine now. I just set the message wait to pretend that Ramza has no name at all, so it will mute slightly too early rather than risk softlocking. Given that it tends to line up with the timing of the music change and the action scene, I don't think anyone will even notice.

Damn. 4 letters huh?  After realizing this bug 30 hours into my current playthrough, I'm thinking of another 4 letter word right now. Lol.

Too bad.  Such an obscure thing.  I'll just skip balthier for now.  Still lots of awesome stuff o check out

If your save file is in .gme format, it seems FFTastic can edit it. Otherwise, you can feel free to send it to me and I'll add some half-spaces that will allow you to unlock him (even if characters saying Ramza's name will sometimes look a bit weird from then on).

MemCardRex can convert your save file to .gme if it isn't already in that format, and can then convert it back to the desired format after editing the save. Always make a backup, of course.

Thank you that's a very generous offer.  I may take you up on that. I don't really have much in the way of technical expertise for editing game parameters. Gme?  Ehhhgg.   I am using open emu emulator and it's got kind of a janky save setup.  Actually I couldn't even tell you what format it uses.  Still there may be a way to convert it to gme. I'm sure there's a way to make that work.

I just completed the game.  Love all the work you guys have put into this. Clearly a labor of love and one I am all to glad to experience. 

One quick question. I unlocked shadow stitch for Ashley Riot. Not sure what skill set it's under as it traditionally fell under assassin use hand ability. Thank you!

I am having a new issue. I just finished the 3rd battle in riovanes castle and I keep crashing right after the scene when Ramza picks up the stone and says "Alma..." I've tried fresh installs and still having same issue.

Btw I am using duck station for emu

Edit: Never mind..... Found the issue

I noticed a bug with the squire's "Monster Skill" ability.

It's suposed to allow friendly monsters acquire 1 new skill within 3 cells from the character with Monster Skill equiped, but the skill only appears if the monster is directly adjacent to that human character.

In other words, Monster Skill have 1 cell range instead of 3.

I don't understand. If Monster Skill isn't broken what am I doing wrong?

You've got all the info! It has only ever worked on adjacent units, the description is worded a little misleadingly (by 3 tiles it means adjacent and up to a height difference of 3).

From the FFT Battle Mechanics Guide

"[Monster Skill] - 200 JP, Squire
Monsters standing on squares adjacent to you will have access to a new
skill (vertical tolerance 3).  This will have no effect if you are
Berserk, Confused, or Unable to Fight."

Hello guys! I am new on this patching psx games but I am having an issue.

I am trying to apply the TLW to the PSX image.
First I tried to patch directly using the lastest version (V2.031) and I was getting an error on the ppf-o-matic3, it was not able to open the file (not sure if this is expected).
Second: Patching first the version 1.02 and then patch using the version 2.031, worked on the ppf software. But when I was trying to run the game, I couldn't pass the opening, after putting my birthday and skipping (or waiting) the opening scene I got a black screen. (tested on epsxe, psx and duckstation, psx throw an error on the log about some kind od physical address access error).
Third: Just patch using the V1.02, I was able to pass the opening scene, will try to apply the v2.031 after passing the opening scene and while on monastery battle using a save state.

Not sure if I am doing something wrong, I read the documentation to applying the patch and I think I was doing the steps correctly, but it's my first time trying this, sorry in advance!

EDIT: Re-tested today from a fresh start and I was able to patch and use v2.03 without issues! Seems I was already burned out on my first try haha, thanks for the mod!

Thanks!!
