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

Bugs and Suggestions / Custom Sprite Page Down
February 22, 2020, 01:39:48 am
It looks like the custom sprite page is down?
Sup, I'm back to do some modding of WotL since slowdown has been fixed and emulation is also possible.

I was wondering if someone had already recolored generics to have each sprite palette match a specific color scheme even more closely than the main game.

IE currently Squires are colored as such:
#1 - Brown
#2 - Blue
#3 - Red
#4 - Green
#5 - Pink

Black Mages are colored as such:
#1 - Blue
#2 - Teal
#3 - Black
#4 - Green
#5 - Red

As you can see there are a couple of differences here which I would like to make similar across all generic classes.  IE I want all #1, party members to be RED, all #2 palettes should be BLUE, all #3 palettes should be BLACK, etc.

I seem to remember someone was redoing the sprites for an AI season in the past but wanted to check before I go through the somwhat painful task of re palettizing all the generics to fit a uniform theme that was different than the main game.
Completed Mods / Final Fantasy Tactics: Rebirth Released!
December 19, 2010, 02:45:30 pm
Gentlemen!  The day has finally come!  With over a year in production, Final Fantasy Tactics: Rebirth (formerly known as Project: Bahamut) is now available for public download.  FFT: Rebirth is a modification for the PSX game Final Fantasy Tactics.  The mod features one new class, the Lunar Knight, rebalanced classes, altered characters, enhanced encounters, and a slew of item and monster changes.  You can find a full list of features at the Nexus Studios Features Page - http://www.nexus-studios.org/?page_id=89.

*With the help of LastingDawn from FF Hacktics we have created a PPF version of the mod that saves bandwidth!  All you need besides this file is an emulator for yourself and an image file of Final Fantasy Tactics.  The download link for the mod is located at the Nexus Studios FFT: Rebirth Mainpage - http://www.nexus-studios.org/?page_id=60

Here is an instructional video on how to setup the modification:

Finally I would like to say personally say thanks to everyone who has helped with the development and production of this mod.  Here's a short video of me expressing my thanks.
PSX FFT Hacking / Speed Growth and You
December 16, 2010, 09:48:06 pm

I know a while back there was a large discussion on Speed Growth and ways to alter or solve issues associated with it (particularly late-game balance, de-leveling, and the like).  A while back I made a Powerpoint on it for my own mod - in order to tell users unfamiliar to the Battle Mechanics Guide, or Tactics modding in general, what was Speed Growth, how we dealt with it, and how others were dealing with it.  Well today I finally got around to adding audio and uploading it as a video.  I've been trying to tie up all the lose ends and get my mod out on December 19th, 2010.  Anyway, I thought you guys might like to see and/or discuss these videos; considering these are the esoteric things that such communities love.

Without further ado:

The Lounge / So I Met the President Today
December 06, 2010, 09:44:18 pm
So I'm taking a class at a community college as I wait to go Army Chemical School next year.  And lo and behold President Obama rolls in.  Crazy that I meet him at a community college rather than the four year university I went through or through a military event.

I'm the one on the left.  Video in link below.


I'm the guy with glasses and the military haircut he starts talking to right after 3 minutes in.
Old Project Ideas / FFT - Project: Bahamut Sample Video
January 27, 2010, 04:11:08 am
So I've actually got a small sample video to share about my mod!  Mainly I was just testing out how to make gameplay videos.  The guides seemed to work fine!

The Lounge / Photoshop Help
January 25, 2010, 12:35:27 am
Are any of you guys good with Photoshop?  For the life of me I can't get this tutorial on Quick Gold Text to work.  I was wondering if I could get a more indepth explanation or some help:

Help! / Stop Katanas from Breaking
January 22, 2010, 02:49:48 am
Is there anyway to stop Katanas from breaking with the Samurai Skill Set?  I tried changing the calculation away from "XXX//May display broken" but all that does it make the skill work similar to an item (in which the katana is auto-consumed) which is the exact opposite of what I am trying to do.  I figured this has probably been done before but I could not find a thread about it.
Help! / Problem with Boco
January 20, 2010, 12:08:49 am
Goal: Add an innate Support Skill (Defense UP) and Movement Skill (Move-HP Up) to your friend and mine - Boco.

Problem: After joining my party these two skills are not in effect for Boco.

Method Used: I edited Event "194 - Araguay Woods" to add "Defense UP" and "Move-HP Up" to Boco under the skills section in his details window.  It seems that in the initial battle (before he is joined to the party) both these abilities work fine.  Unfortunately when added to the party he no longer has these skills.

Question: Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?  Does he need another Primary set rather than "FF Job's"?  Or am I missing something very simple.  Changes I made to Rad, Alicia, and Lavian seem to have worked fine, but Boco is not working correctly.  Thanks in advance.
Spriting / Changing Rafa and Malaks Sprites
October 27, 2009, 11:11:54 pm
Does anyone have any suggestions about changing Rafa and Malak's sprites?  I mean you know its fortunate that their family got killed by a fire; just to spare their mother from looking at that fugly pair.

I was thinking of a recolor but that might not be enough . . .
Spriting / Reis (Lust Recolor)
October 27, 2009, 07:59:08 pm
What do you guys think about this sprite for Reis?  I always thought Reis's human sprite was way to tame for an awesome half-dragon with retarded good stat growth.  The sprite is a recolor utilizing Zozma's Lust sprite.

PSX FFT Hacking / Fast Videos
October 25, 2009, 02:33:39 am
I notice that most videos posted about mods such as 1.3 have been sped up.  What setting in ePSXe allows you to speed up gameplay?  Or have the videos simply been sped up in post-processing?
Help! / Hack/Patch Order?
October 24, 2009, 06:37:08 pm
When patching or hacking an ISO does the order in which I patch things matter?  Should I use the common ASM hacks last or first (the ones from FFTorgASM)?  Does that matter?  Do I place sprites in first and then do everything else?

I am under the impression that you would do FFTPatcher, ASM, then Sprites.  Is this correct?
Help! / Making a Sprite use a Different Palette
October 23, 2009, 09:30:40 pm
Goal: I'm trying to get Vanya's Defender Sprite (Ch2/3 Ramza) into FFT but I don't want the base purple sprite - I want the his red version.

Attempted: So far I've attempted importing the SPR into FFT an switching the drop down box for palette to "Sprite #2" this seems to have no effect when you exit though.  I've also tried exporting the BMP when I had palette "Sprite #2" selected (so the GUI showed me a red defender) but it exported the same palette.

Any help is appreciated.
So I've Downloaded FFTorgASM and I noticed it has a hack called "Defend Reduce Physical Damage by 25%" which is pretty cool.  But I think that it should reduce damage by 50% (or maybe 33%) considering it not only takes you an action but also takes a slot.

I figure this should be a simple fix, but I have no clue about how to do that.  Is there a guide or thread about this?  A search turned up some ASM request threads but they all seem to just be people requesting things that one person puts into the FFTorgASM program.
Spriting / Ramza Recolor
October 22, 2009, 06:32:53 pm
I'm recoloring Ramza for a small modification I am working on and was wondering what most of you vet guys around here think looks best.

I was planning on changing every Ramza (Ch1, Ch2, Ch4) but I'm not sure what I could do with the original one besides a color swap.  I figure the Ch2 one could have armor while the Ch4 one would have armor and a cape.  Any feedback is appreciated.
