Don't be hasty to start your own mod; all our FFT modding projects are greatly understaffed. Find out how you can help in the Recruitment section.

Quote from: Lucavi00 on Yesterday at 08:00:06 pmUnsure if this is common but when I patch my FFT to the newest DL of the Lion War, I cannot use my controller.

I am using Duckstation with a PS5 controller connected to my PC vis USB.

Before I patch FFT, controller works fine but afterwards, no dice.

Any ideas?

Literally no relation.

Quote from: Jumza on December 01, 2022, 09:07:44 amI believe it is TLW2 instead of SCUS at the beginning of the name!

This is correct ^

Unfortunately i have to announce that this mod is on indefinite hold for the time being, as I'm no longer really a part of this community and dont have enough ego to assume I can complete this alone.

Sorry guys.
Quote from: Nyzer on November 15, 2022, 06:20:49 pmCome on, Elric, tell us how you really feel about this translation.

Yeah sorry, was having a rough day and over reacted. My point still stands, but I could have gone about it much better.
Quote from: TTGL23 on November 14, 2022, 08:27:08 pmIs it possible to add in "The War of the Lions" to the text to be more in keeping with the PSP terminology?

Dude, what about this BUG REPORTING thread makes you think this would be a good place to ask?

Also, no, absolutely not. If I wanted it to be called War of the Lions, that is what I would have called it. War of the Lions has the absolute most dogshit translation of any game I've ever played. So the mod gets a dumb name to go with a dumb translation.

Next time post in the right place...
Quote from: MerlinRST on November 12, 2022, 11:18:10 amExcellent job! It helped me to get new characters - and by the way, to put Altima (First form) as an ally, using some random Unit to not get so weird in the team formation (crazy).
It may seem strange to make Altima an ally, but I really wanted a character with that teleport style, not to mention that her sprite is very well made and worth being used for good (even if it's your own benefit). Obviously I will adjust it so that it doesn't completely break the game, like changing Teleport 2 to Teleport 1, and base status.
I'm not creating a complete MOD because I still haven't learned to use the event editing tools and others, so I'm modifying small things just for my own use, until I learn to create a mod worthy of being shown here. But it will take a long time because I don't understand about it. Anyway, congratulations on the brilliant idea. And thank you!

UWEntries is no longer needed as the functionality was eventually built into FFTP
Quote from: CieloGT on November 08, 2022, 10:17:53 amHi! Been lurking this website precisely for this mod for my vita, but haven't had the chance to go about and work on it since med school is such a bitch. Do forgive me if this may come off as stupid but I assume you did some added steps to add WotL movies to your iso file. You mentioned that you basically gave up doing your own patch so I initially assumed you just applied the patch then called it a day. How did you go on to add the movies and did playing this with retroarch prove to be smooth and seamless?

It is only the intro and opening movies and the link for the ppf to patch them is in the readme
Quote from: Ramza108 on November 04, 2022, 06:56:11 amLol.  Look man, I love the hack and appreciate the hard work that went into it but that's not very helpful jsyk. If the game had answered my question, I wouldn't have asked here.

This is assuming that I haven't already done this several times.  It may be supposed to work and show up somewhere ordinarily but that's what I'm trying to ask you.   

I have already stated that the ability purchases didn't show up at all anywhere that I've looked.  They still aren't there.     

I've beaten it several times now, actually.  Besides how can I expect to know the answer when you are unable or unwilling to answer it as the creator? 

The issue is that you literally havent even taken time to explore if you dont know the answer. No one else needed this said, and its been kept OFF the forums for a reason...

They are 100% there. You arent looking in the right jobs, or you didnt purchase them for the same units you are checked for them on.

It is literally never the creators job to provide this info. That is why strategy guides are made by 3rd parties. To expect that from something that is more of a game extention than a mod, is not something i can understand.

Quote from: RetroTypes on October 31, 2022, 09:08:27 pmPSX is the simplest to use, not the best looking but it's also the most compatible with mods (especially older ones). You can get it from the tools page or google.

Also, if you've done anything like trying to combine mods/hacks without knowing exactly what you're doing, that would likely cause issues as well, so hopefully you haven't done that and are just playing vanilla or a mod directly from the forums.
pSX 1.13, or PSXfin. No one is gon a find it via PSX. lol
Quote from: Ramza108 on October 31, 2022, 12:05:15 am... Well?  Do you guys know?  Can somebody throw me a bone here? lol. Am I missing something? 

No. The 2nd post here literally says youll find out when you beat the game. If youve done so and still dont know then you need to check the end of the game again..

Im having trouble believing you beat the game if you don't know the answer tbh. There is only so many jobs in the menu to check. Just use process of elimination.
PSX FFT Hacking / Re: Sprites in Battle and a question
October 30, 2022, 03:00:01 pm
1) Its not a bug, its a vram limitation so, no, you can only have 9 unique sprites on screen (alt palettes are fine)

2) You wont find a lot of basic tutorials like you are requesting as most of those things are covered in larger tutorials like eventing. Outside of that there is discord to ask questions. But all the info you are looking for is definitely on the site, since thats how I and many others learned it. Not having experience seems to be something that people think shouls be a stopping point until someone helps, but its not. If you really want this, your gonna need to do some legwork as well.

OBS) Again, event editing tutorial.

Definitely recommend looking through the tutorial section and joining discord because this topic is way too broad, since it seems like you want a tutorial on how to mod the game, in full, and thats just not a thing.

Quote from: MerlinRST on October 30, 2022, 12:42:54 amMy world map is completely dark, I only see the objective points to walk between them. Earlier today everything was ok. I copied a friend's video configuration and the map still doesn't appear for me, and his map appears normally. I've been playing on version 2.0.2 for years but this time I can't solve it.
I downloaded versions 1.7, 2.05 and even 1.8 and in all of them the world map is not normal. I already deleted the ePSXe records from windows and reconfigured the emulators, and it had no effect... I don't know what else to do to get it back to normal, please help me.

There are several guides on the site for this. Look in the pinned index threads here and in the tutorials section as well.

Though I will add that ePSXe is just about the worst emulator you can possibly use for playing FFT mods. Or PS1 games in general.
Quote from: Gregory on October 29, 2022, 08:35:50 pmGotta hop over to Duckstation. Wasn't even aware of it. Thanks! I tried again on a different emu and it crashed again. To Nyzer's point I've added in the WotL movies (which only worked on the intro anyway) so that could also be causing the issue.

The movies would have no effect. When i do bugtesting I use them as well.

Quote from: Amici on October 30, 2022, 09:04:23 amHow far along or how "final" is this patch already? I used to work on a personal patch where I edited Ramza to have a new job class, plus new custom sprites for some characters, while everything else is retained. But it happened with an earlier release and thus my work is already "outdated". I would rather try to do it again with finished version of TLW.

Are there still a lot of bugs/things to fix/stuff to add in the latest version? Or is it safe to say that the latest version is already far along enough that I don't need to worry about reupdating my patch on an even newer version  of TLW.

If you wanted to know about active bugs, the bug thread woulda been the right place

I have no intention of making any more updates to this patch outside of 1 event update

Quote from: Zolias on October 29, 2022, 07:53:57 amIs there likely any way to be able to make enough roster slots to hold all extra-special characters along with some monsters/generics?  Just curious, because it'd be great to be able to do so, along with being able to bench some units, as well.

The roster space in TLW is already as big as it's ever going to be, unless Glain expands the Bench hack.

The roster itself was already increased to 20 for TLW, as well as including the bench hack which gives room for 10 more units.

There are 26 unit.bin slots for the game to have unique sprites in the roster screen, plus monsters and generics. Minus 2 for the additional Ramzas, thats 24 unique units that can potentially have in Recruits, with 6 additional slots. I doubt youll ever have more than that.

Quote from: 7anjabil on October 29, 2022, 11:51:07 amCan I just say I searched this forum a lot before deciding to post this. This has been the most helpful post by far, but just to say for the benefit of others who want to get this mod working on their Vita, the XML Elric is talking about is TLWotL  Serial.xml in the resources folder: 6. TLWotL ASM (Patch Last)\ASM (FFTP .495 B1)\XmlPatches\PSX

In the end, I wasn't able to understand how to build my own PPF with this XML excluded - and I'm a pretty technical guy - and got it working by patching the ISO, then converting to .CHD with CHDMAN (this version has the ISO to CHD script, just place ISO in the folder and run the batch file) and running in RetroArch.

If there's a more baby-steps guide to building a PPF from the resources (not the main post with the resources zip file, tried that), please point me to it.

Although even if I can't run this in Adrenaline, it's probably better in RetroArch as you have native fast-forward controls (if you like that sort of thing), and can extend the display to cover the whole Vita screen - and it looks fantastic:

+ more

I guess you also avoid any potential POPSLoader issues. FYI, Vita uses a custom POPSLoader for technical reasons.

Elric thanks for all the work with this mod, which seems to have everything. Looking forward to finally playing FFT again after 20 years. Get yourself a Vita, you won't regret it!

Glad you got it sorted. To build without it you'd just use the resources from the resources thread and on the last step when patching the ASMs, youd just not tick the box for that specific ASM hack.

Still surprising that it's been over 10 years since this whole thing started.  Here's to the next 10!

Me too lol
