Use of ePSXe before 2.0 is highly discouraged. Mednafen/RetroArch is recommended for playing/testing, pSX is recommended for debugging.

The only times ive seen this is using an illegal character that is not supported, or by going over the offset/amount of allowed space for that section
Quote from: botik on June 20, 2021, 01:16:38 pmIn the latest version 1.26, the XA/STR files are combined into the "mixed" format as they have the same structure.

The Journey of the Five mod transferred to the archive with files to replace files from the main game.


Cool man, I didn't see that fork before. Thank you

As for Jot5, its been completely rebuilt, so this won't help me too much, but I appreciate the effort :)
Hey botik,

I'm quite familiar with mkpsxiso, as it is integrated into one of the programs I made for modding Resident Evil games, however, I'm not sure how its useful here, as we already have a isomanager specific to FFT, as well as the program JuraviS which is in development as well, which can not only add larger files to the image, but also entirely new files, which mkpsxiso alone cannot do.

As for the XML, why do you have the XA and STR files as mixed and not properly labeled as STR / XA respectively? mkpsxiso accepts both of these inputs to be more specific.
There hasn't been a post in this thread in over 6 years...

a blanks canvas with default aesthetic.
Until I stumbled upon this site
Is there new and fresh and custom FF Tactic I can play now?

You need to be a whole entire buttload more specific... We have tons of mods that do tons of things. Take a few minutes to actually look at the mods hosted here. THEN if you can't find what you are looking for, make a more specific post.

While I agree it's a good post. It mostly serves to make me feel super old that this even needs to be said these days lol

Who even are you

And why did you resurrect an 11 year old thread?
The Lion War / Re: Full Tutorial Available?

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

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.
