The Lion War / Re: Full Tutorial Available?
June 10, 2021, 07:10:15 am
They aren't though...

If you are just trying to play the game, download the PPF and follow the instructions in the Readme

If you are trying to build your own mod, with TLW as a base, then you need to download the resources in the resources thread and instead follow THOSE instructions. That's it. Everything is explained in those threads under the assumption that you've never done this before, and there is nothing there that isn't explained elsewhere as well. Nothing here cannot be learned with some time, you just need to put the time in to actually figure it out and not be afraid to try a thing before asking a thing.

All of the things you are asking about are in the stickied threads in this section of the forum :/


We take the time to write things like this so we don't have to re-explain this every time someone downloads something.

The movie files and CDProg can be downloaded HERE. CDProg gives a false positive of being a virus, even worst case scenario, it cannot be harmful to anything newer than Windows XP (even on my Windows XP Virtual Machine, I was not able to find any issues)

Quote from: JadeKnightblazer on June 04, 2021, 11:53:54 pmI am having issues with the spreadsheet sadly. Making changes and such, straight forward... being able to export it into something usable... not so much.

Seems working on the spreadsheet via online (office.com) doesn't include the features I need? Opening up the spreadsheet in view mode only (Not purchased excel), there seems to be check list and radio buttons, however on the website those are missing.

Best guess, I need to buy the Product...

Doesn't seem to be a XML tab on the bottom either, which I commonly use for ASM.  RIP

There is no xml. It has addin functions to export a tactext file itself. You should be able to acquire something like office 2007 fairly easily
Quote from: JadeKnightblazer on June 04, 2021, 06:15:14 pm@ Elric and Nyzer, yes rebuilding using the resource pack provided!!

I have been patching my final non-TLW ASMs at the end, however I am guilty of trying to do some txt polish this morning and kept crashing the formation loading screen.

Normally I would load up FFtactext(.457) change text and patch (Though sometimes it fails but there is a way to get it to work).

How am I able to use the TLW- FFTText Editor sheet? no XML option tab below, or do you use another means?

edit: 2: Eh figured it out, using the TLW tactext.ffext provided, making changes there and patching to a fresh TLW ISO, then readding each TLW ASM (1 at a time? seemed having them all checked and patched at once didn't work, however pain staking 1 at a time worked). Nextly repatching my adjustments and ASM.

TY once again for this post!!!
Edit: I am using Office.net to do my spreadsheets (free), I am guessing there are some missing features? I notice loading up in no edit mode, that there are buttons and bullets to click.

You don't edit in tactext for that version of TLW... You edit in the text editor spreadsheet and then export and patch with tactext
Quote from: JadeKnightblazer on June 04, 2021, 10:33:52 amYes thanks to this post. I have been rubbing my head on why a simple text change kept crashing formation window @_@

Any idea what ASM that causes this or what tactext changes to spaz it out?

You should not be making any tactext changes unless you are building TLW from scratch with the resources provided. Tactext must be patched before the ASMs are applied in the case of TLW
PSX FFT Hacking / Re: ASM Requests
June 02, 2021, 06:21:43 pm
Quote from: Gregory on May 24, 2021, 09:07:45 pmRequesting a Meliadoul buff for TLW.

All Mighty Sword skills to have vertical range of 3, area of effect of 2, inflict damage like WotL, as well as the following:

Shellbust Stab: chance to inflict slow.
Blastar Punch: chance to inflict confuse.
Hellcry Punch: chance to inflict disable.
Icewolf Bite: chance to inflict immobilize.

Anyone willing to help a dude out? ^__^

This isn't ASM. You can do all of this yourself in FFTP
Quote from: JadeKnightblazer on June 02, 2021, 03:30:06 pmVery cool!! Maybe I'll passs this on to Pokeytax and see what they could do or like to do with it. Seems a good way to back extra items in the game without needing to use item ids or replacing vanilla.

Pokeytax hasnt been very active here for years
New Project Ideas / Re: Orran Join simple mod
June 01, 2021, 02:28:25 am
Quote from: Devix on May 31, 2021, 01:04:02 pmHi guys, I'm new here and I signed up because it is my intention to create a mod for fftwotl for psp.

Quite simply it is a mod where at the end of a certain event, Orran join the group.

I created a setup of the astrologer class based on the same orran in ffrk, so a sort of white mage/bard, making celestial stasis unlockable with 2500jp and nerfed it a bit.

Had no trouble using fftpatcher, it's very simple and using Lioneditor for the playtest it.

But it is not so easy to use "easyvent editor super perfect 2.1".
I understood that the appropriate event to insert the "join orran screen" could be the number 168 "meet again with olan" or at the same time as orlandeau joins, event 248 "rescue of cid".

The point is that I don't know how to write this event and insert it right after the various speeches or alternatively immediately after the orlandeau join.
I cannot understand, even in the case of orlandeau, what are the strings that allow a character to join the party.

My questions are:
It can be made?
Is Easyvent editor the right tool for what I intend to do?
Has anyone done this before and am I just wasting my time?

Thanks a lot, have a nice day!

Hey man. If you want to have him join with Orlandu, this makes most sense tbh.

You can add new dialogue his the event if you want. Or you can just have him join up in the evebt by flagging 'join after event' on him in the ENTD (found in FFTPatcher) that Orlandu joins in. It already should have the setup for joining after an event, since someone else does. So event work itself, is only necessary if you would like to add more dialogue for Olan or someone else in that event.

In which case you can edit the event (remove the text offset at the beginning) and then recompile it in WotL mode using EVSP.

Hope this helped
The Lion War / Re: ARH Lite expansion
May 30, 2021, 05:26:21 pm
Quote from: JadeKnightblazer on May 30, 2021, 02:52:22 amDo you have any plans to expand upon your ARH Lite system? While it works wonders for Ashely Riot, heck even other multi-weapon abilities in 1 class.

I feel there is leaps and bounds this Spreadsheet could provide :)

Example: Certain abilities are only useable while the character is inflicted with a status. - OR - Bravery/Faith must be this high/low.

All in all, ty for all the passion you pour into your projects and to the others that work with you!!!

Eh, the Lite version was made specifically for TLW to make it a smaller hack since TLW is minimalist being that its a base patch made to work as a base for other new mods... No one here is going to know anything about ARH lite since it was made years ago, within my team... If you want something less 'lite' then the 'lite' version, just like, download the full version. There will be no expansion to the 'lite' version
Just a FYI, this community is about actually modding the game. Not something as simple as just modified saves.

If thats what you wanna do though, there are tools here to help you do that, so id suggest looking into those. This isnt really one of thise sites where you make a request and then its fullfilled. We all do our own things here.
Quote from: Tyler_Durden64 on May 15, 2021, 08:25:04 pmHey man, if you're offended by a simple question or request, thats your problem. Im not apologizing for it and Im not gonna sit here and pretend like some and say "take all the time you need, i dont want this sooner, id prefer later". I asked if the mod was dead and if it'd be possible to release in smaller chunks, simple questions that require simple yes or no anwsers that would of sufficed. Yes, obviously if i could do it myself i wouldn't be here asking. I guess I'll check back on this next year then, sense as you said, you'll  work on this when you're damn good and ready 🤷‍♂️.

Kinda doubt you'll still be around here next year tbh. People like you kill motivation to work on a thing that is created to bring entertainment and joy, you offer no encouragement nor anything else that should be coming out of a project, being made, for free, by people with full time jobs and families. I think my past and current projects speak for themselves in terms of quality and my dedication, thank you very much. If time is such an issue for you, then you are in the wrong place. You want to ask for something else, go ask a dev who is paid to do this. To be quite honest, I'd rather you stay as far away from anything I create, as humanly possible.

I don't give two shits if you apologize or not. However, come at me, or anyone else like that on the forum again, and it'll be the last thing you post here, friend. No, this is not a threat, I'm just making you well aware of my intention to ban you if you keep it up. No more, no less.
Quote from: Pride on May 07, 2021, 02:02:03 pmI took the opportunity to make a xml to do this without having to upload each gns file.  Faster and easier. Apply with FFTorgASM like most xml files.

what a bro
Quote from: Tails_Doll_Prower on April 23, 2021, 01:44:28 amI'm just now seeing this, and I'm highly intrigued by sparing characters who are useful and have them join, or let them go.

Heck, you could rewrite everything and change history depending on the routes taken.. choice like sparing Wiegraf sister.
Then tetra would be saved after fighting wiegraf, because due to sparing her.. she would make sure tetra is left behind for example..

However I get stuff like this really takes time to create/edit. But guess that's a idea.

But however, loving this after seeing some videos. Keep it up!

Lol, Miluda you get as a undead unit, in ch4, if you have recruited Wiegraf and go to her grave at Lenalia Plateau
Quote from: Tyler_Durden64 on April 12, 2021, 12:46:05 pmIs this mod even being worked on still? Is it dead? Seems to have been frozen for a very long time. Idk about everyone else, but i just want to recruit Elmdor and Gafgarian. Dont care much about the long list of other stuff on here... If this mod isn't going to be finished any time soon, couldnt we have a smaller more simpler version to hold us over?

It is. I'm not a paid employee, and I don't release partial patches. IF you actually want up to date info, maybe ask on discord, or take into account the amount of projects I work on, here alone. Let alone anywhere else.

The reason I mod games and do not work for a dev team, is because I do this as a hobby on my own time, when I am damn good and ready to do so.

If you want something that bad, you are free to use some of your own free time, to create it properly, mostly lore friendly, and well evented, on your own. Otherwise you can wait for this. Up to you.
Quote from: BrizzleSizzle on April 04, 2021, 11:24:15 pmTitle.  So I think I may have hooped myself by mastering Geomancer (buying all the skills) before it was actually level 8.  Anyone else run into this problem?  I have over 3000 JP at level 7 currently.  Is this even needed in this version to unlock Dark Knight?  I can't find an accurate source of info for the job requirements.  They also seem to be quite different from both WotL and vanilla.  Please help!!!

We don't support 1.3 here
Quote from: Thoach on April 02, 2021, 04:40:22 amHi there,

Is it possible to download this mod ? The videos show that it works for some of the characters.
Indeed, I would like to mod FFT to be able to recruit Gafgarion.

Thank you for your answers.


Nah, its not out yet
Quote from: weary_old_man on April 01, 2021, 11:13:26 amHi all,

Thanks for taking the time to make what looks like a great mod!  I had a quick question.  As part of this project, was the original localized text cleaned-up as well?  I couldn't tell from the release post, read me, and FAQ, if a pass was made to make some of the original text make more sense.

I'm a new poster here, so apologies if this is addressed elsewhere  Thanks again! 

Nope. The dialogue is vanilla
Quote from: helltoast on March 24, 2021, 02:21:10 aman anonymous user was kind enough to share their backup of the dropbox file. the original was probably deleted because of cdprog.exe, it's flagged by every av as a virus.


and here's a link just for the video files if you're worried about your av going off. you still need cdprog though, and it'll get flagged no matter where you download it from.

I was going to make a ppf for this for just the movies, but it would be huge and cant guarantee itll play nice with everything else.

So instead im going to just fix the movie files in general (riff headers are bullshit) and reupload them with the next update. Then you should be able to import via cdmage, without any issue.

If this doesnt work, i can include another program to just insert those files for you, without cdmage
Quote from: Hyraldelita on March 26, 2021, 06:03:17 pmSAme as Mudvayne here.. waiting with anticipation.

Good, because Nyzer is currently making a pass again thru all the ch1 events, then as he moved to the final pass (before more testing) on the ch2 events, ill be condensing the ch1 events using the new structure.

We are still a bit out, but much closer than we ever have been before, since those 3 gathering events are all working now :)
