The Lion War / Re: The Lion War - FAQs
Yesterday at 07:52:47 pm
Quote from: bee on Yesterday at 05:20:56 pm1. Does "TLWotL" stand for "The Lion War of the Lions"?
2. If so, that is hilarious. (this is not a question, I suppose...)
3. Is TLWotL just the translation, or are there any other differences to TLW?

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Translation, Zodiac Calendar, Skill cost changes, everything in tactext updated, alazlams speech updated and aligned, etc.

This is a limitation, not a bug. Thank you for your report though. No one else noticed that yet.

Quote from: scbw1234 on May 10, 2022, 05:46:36 amIs there any chance in the future you guys could give an option for implementing the WoTL translation? Or does this patch compatible with FFT Complete?

Its not compatible with FFTC. This mod is way too large for it to be compatible with that.

But yes, you will get to play the most terrible translation of a game ever written in about a month or so, whenever I finish up TLWotL.
Quote from: bee on May 05, 2022, 04:11:10 pmI just came across a thread in the WotL modding section, that said in no uncertain terms that WotL modding is a bad idea, compared to the PSX version.

I wanted to mod WotL because I think the cutscenes are beautiful, and some of the extra content is fun, but after seeing the thread, I was wondering if support is still as rough as it was ~6 years ago when the thread was created.

Thanks again for the help! 🐝

It doesn't say modding WotL is bad, it says not its nearly as viable as the tools, ASMs and everything else made to edit the games is 90% aimed toward the PS1 version. PS1 doesn't have the slowdown, the wonky sounds or any of that, and most people see it as the superior translation over the unrealistic faux old English used in WotL.

TLW has all the additional events and story bits. It also has the intro and opening movies. In the few places that there were movies in WotL that we didn't add, a new custom event was made instead.

The only things missing from TLW that wont be added at all are Onion Knight, FellSwords and the other equipment added via WotL. Everything else is there.
Quote from: badboi00 on May 02, 2022, 12:15:03 amhow do i add the mod, do i need to download the psx version or what

You need to read the included readme file...
Some of these are used for 3 different battles in the game (Lake, Yuguo, Zalera 2) the rest are used in the tutorial to make them work in a specific way.
Quote from: Rad on April 26, 2022, 10:21:25 amThank you, Nyzer. I'll see what I can do with that info :P It's mainly the slot numbers that has confused me a ton. + getting the correct files of course, since she's a bit of a less known character :/

Update: Managed to find where I needed to replace the sprites but it just gave me Error-messages back since I don't have the correct files to use. Wrong dimensions of the sprites/pictures and I have no idea where to find the correct ones :( Guess this is a dead-end. If someone figures out a way to get past this, please let me know <3

Yeeeeah, there is a ton of info on the forum about how to do exactly this. Rather than just throwing in the towel you should probably actually look thru the tutorials and such. It's all there. Celdia has a tutorial in that section for how to do exactly this...
Quote from: Ironside on April 12, 2022, 10:23:26 pmThat's encouraging.

And well, since I have you here... ;)

I've gotten a little familiar with EntryEdit but that's just modding vanilla FFT. When making an add-on TLW, I'm guessing any script-editing should be done on RavenOfRazgriz's EasyVent Editor?

That's been easy enough to use. Easier than EntryEdit even.

Yet if I want to playtest the script or actually implement it, how do I get it from EVSP's event directories to... y'know.. the ISO? I'm guessing compile the directory into the TEST.evt provided in TLW resources... but after that, I'm not sure what to do with it. Something with CDmage?

Compile your TEST with the EVSP found in one of the spoilers of the resource thread. Then reimport the test.evt using CDMage

You can also savestate event, but you should learn how to import the test.evt first off.

Quote from: KenoattX on April 13, 2022, 10:29:21 amIs there a way to import a standard psx save file?

Saves from other versions of the game will not work on TLW
Quote from: Ironside on April 09, 2022, 02:23:34 pmI did see this.

I wanted to compartmentalize just the script edit, though. Second Read has a lot of changes to gameplay and sprites so my idea was to restrict myself to JUST fixing the PSX translation with an emphasis on a totally new player's experience. Prioritizing clarity of the narrative above all else. I wanted to keep it modular so that people could use or discard it in conjunction with TLW as they please.

I like this idea personally. I am of the mind that a translation hack should never take other liberties outside of the text, as it will turn off many people who want a vanilla experience with a new take on the dialogue. Keep it up.
Quote from: ParryPupPup on April 04, 2022, 07:00:29 amThe "Angel Form" and the Skeleton forms I mean. Having both on screen glitch one or the other out. Is there ANY workaround to this or is it hardcoded under 19000 terratons of coding?

Likely a limitation of VRAM. The game could very well only be able to handle one of those at a time, or possibly be coded to only allow one at a time. No idea
Jot5 is not open source and editing it isn't something I support outside of the core team. There is a lot of ASMs in Jot5 and what you are asking would break things in more than a few ways

Very cool Xif, great job.
Quote from: ---HattoriIga--- on February 24, 2022, 01:16:23 pmI was left with a question. but from what I read of what you wrote about this treasure wheel, it only works for a mod with the TLW function, in a vanilla ISO there would be no way to use it.

Do you think thats's maybe why it was posted in the TLW section?
Quote from: jjzigen on February 23, 2022, 01:22:46 amHi, just wondering if this is still an active mod and what is the current version? Can it be played using an emulator?

The one in the OP
play with pSX (1.13) emulator

Can you please us the EDIT button instead of making 3 posts in a row on the same day? O_O
Quote from: VoiceChatty on February 18, 2022, 08:55:02 amHello! New to the forum. Found TLW after browsing several hacks/tweaks for the PSX and PSP versions of the game. Still trying to figure out what I'm actually gonna play, but TLW seems like the best choice - especially since it's compatible with Quality of Life Pack: https://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=12769.0

I wanted to know if it was possible to modify the vanilla mechanics concerning Oil status and Elemental Sword skills to use with TLW. Specifically, there's another mod "FFT: Prime" that was built on FFT: Complete v.50 which included the following:

Is this change already implemented in TLW or Quality of Life Pack? Would it be possible to add it (or even worth it)? Should I just forget about it and play the damn game?

Thanks for all the great work, hope to enjoy it soon.

Forgot about it and play the damn game

Quote from: ---HattoriIga--- on February 02, 2022, 02:08:59 pm@Glain as resources from 2.02 were posted to use then I am in doubt. is it possible to use EntryEdit: to make edits of events. I say this because when I try to open the events part of an error does not appear script to make change put event command as it appears in vanilla. the battle conditions and world conditions error more just change size when loading iso that goes more I do not know if this is 100% do this.

will be impossible to mess in a clean rom using resource TLW 2.02 and try to use EntryEdit for editing. I enter this key even with tuto spreadsheet TLW - FFT Conditionals v4 do not understand me mexe this spreadsheet where Var even with tuto that I saw was always at 0% of understanding

Sorry for my English I am using my translator (https://www.deepl.com/)

FFTP is not going to understand the conditionals sheet, and likely not the events either. TLW events and conditions are setup much different from vanilla.
