The Lion War / Re: The Lion War 2.031 - DOWNLOAD HERE!!

Quote from: Carnack on November 22, 2023, 05:04:21 pmHello there,

I am digging up some nostalgia and wanted to give this hack/build a run.  I was wondering if there were any changes to job stat growths or not.  I.E. Ninja still has the best speed stat growth, or if Ramza's squire job is now broken for stat growth.  I have seen that before.

Regardless, thank you for all your efforts.

It's vanilla

Quote from: Voxian on October 22, 2023, 10:54:02 amI'm sorry to ask this, but just spent a few hours reading the forums and discord. is it safe to assume this project is at least on hold, if not canceled? I hope I'm wrong, and just missed a post or update somewhere because I've been looking forward to continuing the story.

Its not cancelled. Its just currently on hold while the team sorts its shit out.
Late reply, however, you cannot start a project with it in mind that you need other people to finish it.

You start the project, show you arw willing to put in the work and if people like it, they will accept requests for help.
The Lion War / Re: Is lion war 2.0 vanilla difficulty?

Quote from: bugnomore on October 07, 2023, 06:57:38 amit's not just about using items, the enemy characters were doing completely different things from usual, and they appeared smarter or at least they had a much wider variety of abilities. In my many vanilla runs through the 1st battle I've never seen archers do anything besides charge, in the hack they were using items, charge and also melee attacks, and they were really harder to defeat. I will perhaps do more runs just in case it was a 1 in a 100 luck, but until then I am skeptical about the difficulty being vanilla.

That being your one off experience does not change that you are incorrect. No changes have been made to that aspect of the mod.

Quote from: Nyzer on October 05, 2023, 09:37:21 pmNot this comprehensive, but I'll take a stab at it. The core The Lion War patch itself has fewer of these, but off the top of my head, here's what you'll get in its sister patch, The Lion War of the Lions:

Virtually all dialogues, locations, characters/monsters, items, abilities and jobs are retranslated (e.g. Priest is now called White Mage; Cidolfas Orlandu is now called Cidolfus Orlandeau); English versions now have text in Early Modern English.
Some status icons are changed in the English versions to reflect their new names.

The English versions have a larger font, more like the one seen in the Japanese releases. Menus and text boxes are unchanged.
A 16:9 aspect ratio is used.
This allows the party roster screen to display more characters per row.
Audio quality is reduced somewhat.
Versions outside of Japan now use X to confirm and Circle to cancel, rather than the opposite.
The Lion War and Job Demonstration attract mode videos no longer play when waiting at the title screen.
Fully animated movies with voices and subtitles now replace some specific key story cut-scenes (the Japanese version does not contain voice acting); this includes the intro and ending sequences (which were CG movies in the original game).
When choosing Ramza's birthdate, the corresponding zodiac sign is now displayed.

A new calendar now displays dates in the zodiac format (e.g. Aries 12) rather than using the Gregorian Calendar (January to December).
Additional story battles, side-quests, and events are added.

Two new jobs are added: Onion Knight and Dark Knight. Unlike in WotL, the Dark Knight is unlocked by reaching Level 8 in Black Mage and Knight.
The unlock requirements for some jobs are upped:
To unlock Arithmetician a character needs White Mage, Black Mage, Mystic, and Time Mage to be on Level 5 instead of Level 4 like before.
To unlock Bard the male character needs to have Summoner and Orator at Level 5 rather than at Level 4 like before.
To unlock Dancer, the female character needs to have Geomancer and Dragoon at Level 5 rather than at Level 4 like before.
To unlock Dragoon, the character now needs to be a Level 4 Thief, up from the Level 3 it was before.
To unlock Geomancer, the character now needs to be a Level 4 Monk, up from the Level 3 it was before.
To unlock Mime, the character now needs to attain Level 5 on Geomancer, Dragoon, Orator, and Summoner, up from the Level 4 it was before. The Level 8 requirement for Squire and Chemist remained unchanged.
To unlock Monk, the character now needs to be Level 3 Knight, up from the Level 2 it was before.
To unlock Mystic, the character now needs to be Level 3 White Mage, up from the Level 2 it was before.
To unlock Ninja, the character now needs to be Level 4 Archer and Level 5 Thief, up from Levels 3 and 4 respectively. The Level 2 Geomancer requirement remained unchanged.
To unlock Orator, the character now needs to be Level 3 Mystic, up from Level 2 Oracle from before.
To unlock Samurai, the character needs to be Level 4 Knight and Level 5 Monk, up from Levels 4 and 5 respectively. The requirement for Level 2 Dragoon remains unchanged.
To unlock Thief, the character now needs to be Level 3 Archer, up from Level 2 Archer from before.
To unlock Time Mage, the character now needs to be a Level 3 Black Mage, up from Level 2 Wizard from before.
Many abilities now take more JP to master.
Two new characters are added:
Luso from Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (replaced with Ashley Riot from Vagrant Story) and Balthier from Final Fantasy XII.
Cloud can be recruited earlier in Chapter IV after completing Fort Besselat, rather than after defeating Adrammelech.
Delita is briefly playable in two battles.
Roster size is increased from 16 to
24 20, at the cost of Guest slots.
The special lines when using abilities during battle (such as White Magic and Swordplay) are removed from the English versions.
The attack name of a summon spell or Iaido ability is now displayed in the English versions, rather than the name of the summon or katana. (Not sure about this one.)
Generic character lines are now unique in the English versions.
Changes to JP costs, ability charge times, character and enemy stats, and Safeguard in the localized versions are adjusted to match the original Japanese version.
Unyielding Blade skills from Meliadoul, Folmarv and Orlandeau have been upgraded to damage enemies even if they're not using the specific piece of equipment (although they will still fail if said enemy has the Safeguard ability); this means monsters can also be damaged by these skills.
Rapha and Marach's seer abilities result in 1~10 random strikes instead of 1~6, and are more accurate
(though not in the same way as in the PSP version). Reis's Holy Breath ability also has 1~10 strikes instead of 1~6.
All of Rapha's abilities are now learnable as soon as she joins the party in Chapter III, instead of most being unavailable until Chapter IV.
Wiegraf's stats when fought in Chapter III are reduced.

The Fort Besselat sluice battle in Chapter IV now ends when all enemies are defeated, instead of after throwing a pair of switches. (Unsure about this one.)
The sound novels are only available in the Japanese version. The three Sound Novels that were translated are available.
A Multiplayer system with two game modes is added via Ad-Hoc.
New items are available, mostly obtained through Multiplayer.

All game-breaking glitches are fixed, including the JP scroll glitch, Weapon duplication bug, Poach bug, Ghost Chocobo riding glitch, Quickening glitch, and Jump glitches.
The Oil status now properly doubles damage received from fire attacks rather than having no effect.

Every time a spell is cast or a certain action is performed, the game slows down.

Thank you for this

Thank you!
Quote from: Nyzer on July 18, 2023, 04:20:01 pmA while ago, I prepared a quick fix for anyone dealing with the Balthier softlock that comes from having 4 or fewer characters in Ramza's name, but I wasn't able to upload it here.

I don't have a save file that can test this myself, but it should work fine. But just to be safe, make sure to apply the patch to a different copy of your TLW/TLWotL ISO - the save file will still work with this other copy afterwards. Do not apply the patch to a vanilla ISO - it's just a quick fix patch, not a new version of TLW.

Thank you

Quote from: KOMBO KILLER on July 19, 2023, 02:22:59 pmI'm doing fft1.3 mod for the most part everything been fine until I got to chapter 4 my cutscenes got buggy like malak wasn't there in he's death but it's w.e but now the cutscenes for Mustadio and his dad won't play no matter what just stays on now loading I used the cheat to try to force the cutscenes from Records its super bugged I did download a clean vanilla copy and it did not work as well I don't know what to do

Welcome to 1.3. The mod isnt hosted or supported here. But if this is not normal behaviour for said mod (i didnt play it) then either your patch was bugged, or your iso was dirty when you patched
Quote from: tcharleyd on June 23, 2023, 04:11:27 pmI actually have a really odd but maybe its a good question. Is it possible to the ISO I ripped from the disk I own and add this patch to the image, then copy the patched file to a new CD-R and play the patched file on original equipment (assuming I can already play this kind of media on original hardware)?

(And I ABSOLUTELY own this game, in sooooo many different ways)

It works on a modded ps1, yes

Quote from: Cral_lemon on June 20, 2023, 12:45:23 amyes i had all the requirements, but nothing happen, i was however in chapter 3, maybe only works in chapter 4?

anyway. will say it again, i return playing TLWotl again after hearing the increase of JP was as is in the original Japanese version of the Zodiac Brave story for the PSX. I got the genji armor doing the rendezvous, so no reason to steal it from elmdor. Again, great job!

BTW, I think Mustadio should have a equivalent of the "crush punch" holy knight skill set as one of his snipe ability's, you know, one shoot that inflict death as a given chance. Named "sharp shoot" or "bulls eye" something like that. something to compete with the OP sky pirate.

It can only be done in Ch4.
Keep reporting. Edit the existing post to compile

The FAQs states the requirements. You need to have mustadio unbenched as well. Plus the needed funds.

Quote from: Cral_lemon on June 04, 2023, 01:49:08 pmExcellent work on the TLW mod, just had to comment here.

I do have to say that i start playing TLWotl first but after reading you can't steal Elmdors gear, i start playing the TLW mod instead. besides it was pretty annoying the increase of job points to learn certain jobs abilities and unlock other jobs, i guess in the PSP, this increase exists because the option to play on cooperative with other players.  But as in single player this increase is rather bothersome. I will however miss the buff for Rafa, Malak and Reis spells and the opportunity of Meliadol spells landing on monsters...

In the PSP version it exists because it was based on the original Japanese build, which had those higher costs.
The Lion War / Re: skill description
May 23, 2023, 03:14:51 am
They are all vanilla skills, so there are many ways to look them up, including google. There is no space to create descriptions for them in the NG+ event.
Quote from: locke_stryfe on May 19, 2023, 05:06:47 pmHello,
I've recently patched in vanilla WOL and am loving it.  I seem to have an issue on the over world map though.  While the different sites are seen, the map background itself is blacked out, except when I move between places.  I'm not sure if I missed something, or if it is an issue with the emulator I use.  I am using ePSXe, if that matters.

Thanks for any help!

This one isn't even specific to TLW, this is a FFT issue in general with ePSXe, which can be fixed, but, as Retro stated above, TLW is not fully compatible with ePSXe

There is a 1-2 pixel line that is offset on the ps1 version vs the psp version, due to the bottom functioning differently on the ntscu ps1 version vs the psp version.

Quote from: iamthehorker on April 24, 2023, 02:14:34 pmKudos to all the work you've done! Is there a reason the chapter title text used in TLWotL is different from WotL? I edited the image files shared with TLWotL resources to look more similar to the WotL text (attached). Is it just a preference?

(TLWotL on the left, WotL on the right)

Im assuming youve not tried your edit in game.
Quote from: Fernando on April 19, 2023, 09:38:47 amQuien me puede pasar el viaje de los 5 q no me deja descargarlo

No, we don't send pre-patched roms. You will need to do it yourself. The download is working fine.

The Lion War / Re: The Lion War 2.031 - Bug Reports
March 18, 2023, 02:10:30 am
Quote from: aroon on March 16, 2023, 04:02:18 pmI 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.
