PSX FFT Hacking / Re: ASM Requests
October 30, 2021, 12:40:03 am
Not sure if this one is out there or not but has anyone ever thought to make the percentage based damage formulas check for and fail on targets that are immune to Death Status?

I've seen some ASM in the past that make the formulas accept elemental which can be used to similar effect. But I got to thinking about it and since those formulas pretty much only cause problems against bosses, having those formulas fail against Death status immunity is probably better since pretty much every boss needs to have Death status immunity anyway and maybe someone wants them to be vulnerable to Dark damage.

Relevant Formulas are 09, 0F, 10, 16, 17, 1B, 2C, 4D. Possibly 47 but since players can give themself death immunity death immunity would also effectively render then immune to Vampire so I'm not sure that protect bosses from Vampire Cats is really necessary.

Weapon range preserves AoE is awesome. In the case of bow users does the center panel of the AoE get the arrow?

I'm sorry. I got excited and wrote the post but I definitely scrolled up to make sure it wasn't answered before posting it. (It was.) Not sure how I did that. Again, sorry for wasting your time on this.

Regarding Permadeath Terminator, does the game track your party members as killed in the game's bravestory section when they become unrevivable?

Event Editing / Re: Pre-Battle Menu
May 28, 2021, 07:27:29 pm
I have an idea. It probably doesn't work but who knows.

First what are the limitations of rerolling enemies? Can it be used to load different ENTDs for the same map? If not that could you reroll the same ENTD until it gives you different randomly  appearing enemy configurations?

Could this be used to create like an arena or a colloseum where the player gets to choose the battles on certain maps?

This is really clever. The ability to redeploy and revisit the formation screen is absolutely a fabulous quality of life hack.

Rerolling enemies is probably too meta but being able to flee might make for an interesting alternative to Smart Encounters, especially if it costs money.

Lots of very clever ideas here.

Well, this certainly was unexpected. Thank you. I really like the idea of knights disarming their foes instead of breaking their stuff.

Does this really make it so stolen items do the same thing? Because that doesn't make a lot sense to me.

What is your plan with the bio abilities?

This is really good. Beowulf should offer Aliste a dignified death rather than merciful one. I think the verbal distinction between the two on this issue is very significant.

I frickin' love this!

Don't the Alama and Malak always dead sprites have a different pose for dead status that's specifically used for their death events? How did you get around this?

Derp. OMG. I love it! I'm totally going to include these with the optional sprites pack I'm adding to Brave Story.

I love this thing! Have you ever considered doing the other humanoid undead units from Poeskas Lake and Yuguo Woods?

Quote from: RetroTypes on May 04, 2020, 06:20:47 pmThe line in the first message "in desperation..." is missing a } after the initial delay setting.
Thank you. I can't believe I missed that.

I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask for help. But something is wrong with the event that won't allow me to compile it or any of the ones that follow it in sequence. I'm losing my my trying to figure this out. What did I do wrong?005 BS Military Academy.txt

Quote from: Elric on April 30, 2020, 08:45:35 pmI vote to keep "blame yourself or god" because wotl not having that was the first reason i shut the game off the first time i tried to play it :P
Agreed.

This next event was tricky. Trying to stay true to either Vanilla or WotL was difficult because both scripts are very flawed in this scene.

005 Military Academy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arazlam (narrating):

Records of the hero Delita first appear one year before the outbreak of the Lion War.

Ivalice's loss of the Fifty Year War robbed it's returning knights of their lands, titles, and even worse, their loyalty to the Crown.

Many became rogues and traitors, men turning to thievery and plotting treason against the Crown.

It was a time of great unrest for Ivalice - murder and theft were commonplace. Many heroes stepped forward to counter this threat. And the city of Gariland, saw its fair share of them...


Chapter I: The Meager

Cadet #1: Another wagon was struck last night on its way to Igros.

Cadet #2: The Corpse Brigade again?

Ramza: I wonder where all this leads...Delita, what do you make of this?

Delita: I'm not sure. I have my guesses, but...

Ramza: I'm listening.

Delita: Duke Larg is coming to Gariland.

Ramza: Duke Larg? Why?

Delita: Not just the duke. The Marquis Elmdore de Limberry, too.

Ramza: That's the first I've heard of it. This has not the sound of a state visit.

Delita: All of Ivalice is in turmoil. The Order's supposed to be keeping things under control, but the fact is, they number too few.

Ramza: And they mean to bolster their numbers with us?

Man's Voice (from outside the hall):All right, everybody, fall in!

[The Cadets file in as a Knight enters the room.  He takes the center position at the head of the gallery.]

Knight: The Order of the Northern Sky has an assignment for its cadets. As I'm sure you're already aware, the number of brigands roaming Gallione is on the rise. Among them, the Corpse Brigade...a seditious lot with a grudge against the Crown. They must be dealt with. The Order has been commanded to eliminate the Brigade. The Northern Sky will be joined by His Excellency Duke Larg's personal guard, stationed at Igros. This operation will leave Igros Castle undermanned. Your assignment is to proceed there, and support us from the rear by bolstering its defenses.

[A female Knight walks in, whispers something briefly to the KNIGHT, then leaves in a rush.]

Knight: Cadets, ready your swords! I've just received word that a band of thieves routed by our knights flees here to Gariland, seeking refuge. We will move to prevent them. Cadets, you will accompany us to the frontline. Prepare yourselves at once! Dismissed!

[The screen goes dark as the apprentices file out of the room to face their opponents. They stand in the streets of Gariland against the band of thieves.]

Notes:
  • Death Corps. It's a fun pun, but it breaks the setting. I went back to the direct translation here because it's members are disgraced feudal soldiers and not Vietnam War veterans.
  • Academy not Akademy because Akademy is just as bad as Technicks

I really like Aerith a well. Also, it's a multiverse right? She could be a parallel version.

It's been a long time since I played Final Fantasy 7 but I always thought Cloud's crossover happened when Tifa dumped him into the lifestream while he was comatose.

The next three events were pretty short so I lumped them all together.


002 Orbonne Monastery - Battle
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Agrias and her knights stand before a host of enemy knights. It is raining.]

Agrias: They bear the crest of the Black Lion...Duke Goltana must be mad! Does he mean to start a war?

Knight: You there, wench! You cannot hope to defeat us! You will surrender the princess! If not...Well, I would hate to see anything happen to that pretty face of yours.

[Gafgarion, Ramza and Radd join the girls.]

Gafgarion: A head-on assault. Goltana's men...fools one and all.

Agrias: In that case, we should be able to handle this without you, Gafgarion.

Gafgarion: Maybe you could, but there's no money to be made in that! Radd! Ramza! With me!


003 Orbonne Battle (Gafgarion & Agrias Chat)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gafgarion: Kill them all! Leave no man standing!

Agrias: You would have us slaughter them? Are you mad? Kill them here and you'll have played into Duke Goltana's hands! We need only put them to rout!

Gafgarion: I find dead men rout more easily.


004 Orbonne Battle (Abducting Ovelia)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[After the battle we see the rain soaked roof of Orbonne Monastery.  From the inside of the church we hear Ovelia scream.]

Ovelia: Unhand me!

[Agrias and Ramza run to her aide. Inside the princess is struggling with an armored assailant.  He is Delita.]

Delita: This way. Be quick! And try making a little less noise.

Ovelia: I'll not take orders from you!

Delita: You've quite a mouth on you, Princess.

[Delita strikes Ovelia, knocking her unconscious.  She falls into him.]

Agrias: Wait!!

Delita: Too late. You can blame yourself or God. Just leave me out of it.

[Delita continues on as Agrias tries to catch him.}

Agrias: Oh God. It cannot be...

Ramza: Delita? You're alive? But, why are you fighting for Goltana?

[The rain continues to fall as the two look on.]


Notes:
-Went with Apparently, Rad, Radd, and Ladd were all English male names at one point.  I went with Radd because Rad is too Bill and Ted and Ladd is too on the nose. Plus who doesn't like a little extra d every now and again...
-Delita's big iconic line is in 4th event here. It's one of those lines that's so bad it's good. But that doesn't stop it from being bad so it has to go. I tried to keep phrase "blame yourself or God" together because I'm not completely barbaric. I'm very open to suggestion here.
-This series of events is honestly, some of Slattery's best work in WotL, so a lot of it is word for word.
