Help! / Tactext WotL Request
September 09, 2015, 06:15:31 am
Greetings everyone, been a while.  The hacking bug has grabbed me again and going to start another something on WotL.  Less in scope than my previous failed attempts. 

I do remember having massive issues with tactext for WotL, and Eternal sent me one of his that had most of the extraneous data like the sound novels etc. removed so you had a bit of space to work with, does anyone happen to have this file?  My old data was all corrupted so I don't trust my old tactext, plus I have no idea what all my changes were so would like to start fresh. 

Also is the list of unused sprites correct for the WotL version, I remember discovering a few issues with that last time. 

Please and thanks to all who help.

For zodiacs if you can call specifics, make it into good/bad/best/worst/neutral combatability, and then use that as a guideline if possible.  I am sure it would require ASM but that way it keeps their use without being one time map wipe most of the time.

The entirety of my lone present.

I got to see my kids though so that's what really mattered though I had to pay for that.  Best couple of hundred dollars I spent in a long time.  Not bad for being jobless.

I guess I can weigh in.  As one of our top geriatrics my views are a bit different.

What I look for in life is watching my children grow and live their lives.  Watching them learn, have fun, and just be themselves is my major motivating factor in life and is what makes me happiest.  I see them less than 10 times a year on average, but we always have a blast and they know I love them and I know they love me. 

As far as love, I carry a bonfire of a torch for my Ex, and hopefully it rekindles permanently because I know she still loves me but extenuating circumstances blah blah blah, I won't bore you.  I've done what I can she needs to take the next step and we both know she wants to, we talk about it at least weekly and talk nightly regardless.  I am not really opposed to finding it elsewhere but I am not looking either, so it would take some kind of serendipitous miracle to even go that route.     

Friends are largely central to my existence, and they have been there for me in times of trail more than family or anyone, though family is a close second.  They're who I turn to in rough times, and one thing I am glad for several members of FFH who lent an ear when needed.  My RL friends more so but at 4am all I generally have is IRC and you few have been there for me so thanks.  I try to spend a lot of time with my IRL friends now that I moved home, and am not working 80-100 hours every week so I cannot do anything or even talk to anyone not from work or living with me.  My social life if heavily nerdy and not exciting, but for someone as generally introverted as I am its definitely quite active. 

Alright youngins, enough waxing melancholic.  Get the &^%$ off my lawn.  :Waves cane:

<Base Class Changes>

Thieves can now equip crossbows.

Dancers can equip axes.

Mime Move and Jump now 5.  Half all elements.  Immune dead, invite, undead, stone, blind, confusion, silence, vampire, berserk,
   chicken, toad, poison, slow, stop, faith, aethiest, charm, sleep, immobilize, disable, doom.
   Requirements now sq 8, ch 8, arch 6, knight 6, monk 6, white mage 6, black mage 6, time mage 6, summoner 5,
   thief 5, orator 5, mystic 5, geomancer 5, dragoon 5, samurai 5, ninja 5, arith 5. 

Most end game and special encounters have mime 8 unlocked.


A huge amount of encounter changes, too many to list, but a few pointers.

Beware Kokobo.  ch. 4 random.  He's nasty. 

Berenvia Volcano has a huge amount of nasty encounters, sort of a test your mettle thing. 

There are multiple ??? humans and monsters scattered around some placed in ch. 3, most in ch. 4.  They nearly all have safeguard, a ribbon and a chantage equipped, with no hp gear (ribbon is 0hp/0mp) so they get the x 10. 

There is a terrifying battle somewhere against most the zodiacs all at once with the best human classes.

Eldibis has been changed a bit, but he is the only thing in the deep dungeon other than move finds and Byblos I have touched, so DD is mostly a cake walk.  This will be adressed once more balance work and how the ch. 4 encounters work out.  It will likely be terrifying.  You've been warned. 

Male squires removed in all aspects.  They're glitchy, I do not know why, not sure on if the ones you may get are.  They are female or something else. 

I have done some work with war trophies, trying to make the items you get a bit better, usually from the next town you could buy them.  Special battles have special rewards, though more will be done.  Move finds will follow a similar trend eventually, so it should help gear keep pace a bit better than normal. 


If I know you, and/or you've helped, pm me on the forums or IRC.  We can work together to build you in as a DD encounter.  Koko got his because of an old agreement I was a bit lax in finishing, and as a nod to the site in general.  I hope to accommodate everyone but I make no promises.

Updates will happen and I will be doing more and more work fine tuning, balancing, and fixing glitches as I go along.  Anything of note please let me know, ideally in this topic so we do not have to take another space in the forums, again subject to moderators whim.

Thanks I and hope you all enjoy!

Long posts coming with changes.   I may make a PSX version once I get a little feedback and balance some more things, and I finish.

And Celdia, you have a psp to play hacked games on unless it finally died on you.  I have not included the slowdown fix as of yet since I'd have to directly hex edit and hope it doesn't mess with things.  I likely will try but other things first.
New Project Ideas / WOTL Shrine Knights Lulz patch
November 12, 2012, 03:38:17 am
Hi I'm Efrate, been here a while, often in IRC but not on the forums a lot.  K so here's the deal.  A buddy of mine I got addicted to FFT on his psp and has been playing a lot, and there is so much more he would like to see and do.  And he is a big fan of Zalbag.  So knowing this, and the tools available, I have ventured into the almost unknown land of wotl hacking.  Though started as a lolz patch, I have put in a decent chunk of time and a lot of headaches.

Goal of the patch is to give a different experience, and to have a variety of options not normally present.  It has been made significantly more difficult, and essentially allows you to follow the story as for the most part your enemies, including but not limited to the shrine knights.  However, do to my utter lack of event editing and wotl being in a lot of ways an unknown entity, it is essentially everything normal for the wotl story just with a new cast and crew of specials.  You are encouraged to not use generics, since the amount of special characters you get necessitates not having many (maybe any), plus that's kinda the point. 

Your power level do to this is significatly higher than normal, so compensation from the enemies has been made.  All enemies, story or random should be party level or party level + X depending on the situation, and their gear increases with level, and certain rare pieces of equipment can be found on enemies.  Overall the experience should be different and more challenging but not insane.  Spoilers in the next post will tell of the changes, I tried to document pretty much everything as I went so its hopefully mostly accurate. 

This project however would not have been possible without the help of a ton of people, and they deserve a ton of credit. 
- First, my buddy Andy who inspired me to do this and finally release a working patch to the public.
- FFM for answering a ton of random questions and pointing out a lot of stuff to me who is very newbish.
- Celdia for covering other things when needed, basic stupid info, and for being sexy but violent.
- Twinnes for pointing out the sprites resource page with the list of Japanese names their normal hex equivalents.  Also for telling me how older patcher (3.57) works with wotl when the new ones do not.
- Xifanie for various troubleshooting and pointers.
- Kokojo for being best Kokobo.
- Etna for being the jupiest of joops and random factoids.
- Tai for being a vampy bro.
- lirmont, mando, vgr, secondadvent, Raven, fdc, and all the others who I probably forgot that gave me a nugget of wisdom.
- everyone in IRC whom I polled about various status, names, animations, etc.  Thanks!
- Elric for saying he'll fix all the little eventing and naming stuff for me anytime.  Its your time man!
- melonhead, philsov, and all the creators of the tools, without which this wouldn't be possible.

And last, and most certainly least, and it pains me to admit this, but Eternal has been a HUGE help, being the only person in existence who has done any seemingly major edits of this game.  For as much crap as we give him, and its a lot, he has been an invaluable resource, helping me past the countless roadblocks there is with this.

The ppf is here, changes below. 

This .ppf DOES include the slowdown fix hex edits.  If's an issue I will change it. 

Known issues: 
        - Most of your specials do not have a formation sprite, the data doesn't exist in wotl so your pbf and menu screen with have  a bunch of ramza/odd sprites.  However, the portrats all work so you can tell who is who, and everything in battle works fine.  As  usual, in events a little glitchiness may assert itself but nothing game breaking.
        - Guest Weigraf(Agrias) and Guest Balk(Musty) for whatever reason stick around.  They join normally but hang out on the formation screen as guests as well.
        - Weigraf pre-battle formation sprite a big mess.  Fine in battle.     
        - Guest Rofel (Rafa) still hangs out in screen, this may be an issue fixed soon.               
        - Plague Horror's cause a hangup sometimes on some maps, seems fairly random, only noticed so far in Barius Valley.     
        - Some of the elemental stuff doesn't work well, healing when it should be hurting, etc.   Holy and water elemental stuff mostly.  I have no idea what is causing this. 
        - You lose Blue Mage as of Ch. 4, the Malak sprite I used is being called somehow and I have no clue where.  I may attempt to use another sprite since the Rafa sprite is fine.  Maybe try one of the other Gafgarion or Agrias's?

<Version History>

Version 1.21: Fixed some pricing errors in the poach list.  A few item changes.  Bows got an upgrade, as did a few poles.  Changed Ice Strike (mystic knight) to be range 2 vert 5 AoE 1. 
Version 1.20: Fixed a bunch if items, changed nearly the entire poaching list.  Bio 2s now do damage and has a chance of status.
Version 1.18: Fixed Earth Strike, confirmed Beam is working fine.
Version 1.17: Fixed Beam (I hope).  Fixed error where Mystic Knight's skills were unaffected by silence, and Izulde's were.  Fixed Hippo's helpers to be red team instead of blue whoops. 
Version 1.16: Fixed Zalmo Status Immunties, removed dispose from Balk's skillset, replaced with beam (range 8 vert 5 linear) because of graphical issues.  Skill is otherwise identical.  Changed 3 brave frog in Rescue Balk battle.
Version 1.15: Do not deploy zalbag at final battle of ch. 1, it makes rafa stay on screen and he doesn't appear.

Additional Version numbers as I change thingies.  Check this post for updates.

using old shishi (3.57)battle sprites are easily replacable.  Formation and pre battle need work, need to insert then manually.  However, basic squires for some reason seem to be glitchy.  Not sure if its just me or what but enemy squires are gitchy.
