How do I get this to work, it's a .ppf i've never used this extension before...

Take the time to read the instructions before asking questions please. I wrote them so that I didn't have to answer this a bunch of times lol

There is a tutorial on patching PPF files in the tutorial section as well.

Is Ramza elegible for DK job?

if you have a bug to report, do it in the right thread... Ramza can become a Dark Knight perfectly fine.

Quote from: AceMcleod on December 15, 2021, 09:40:43 pmI just unlocked dark knight with Ramza, in the ability menu I can see the job and learn the skills, but when trying to change jobs Dancer is in his job wheel and when selecting it he does indeed become a dancer with the same equip restrictions and dancer move set.

EDIT: I re-patched with a clean fresh FFT image just to be sure and it persists. Images attached at the following link: https://imgur.com/a/k7dbdXA

You need to state which emulator. Many others have played this and not had this issue.

Quote from: dream2playfft on December 14, 2021, 08:30:46 amHello im completely new to emulators and was wondering if there was a tut for the lionwar 2.0 thankyou

Literally in the readme in the download, yes. You need ppf-o-matic3 and a rom of FFT, thats literally it. Couldn't be any easier.
Quote from: ronin858 on December 02, 2021, 03:05:26 pmI have a doubt, will elmdor's sword spirit work normally? with gameshark it never worked

A lot of Elmdor's ability can be attributed to Lucavi influence. His skillset has been adjusted to make it less mediocre since most enemies like him only have a couple abilities.

If it's vanilla, then im confused what you are asking... We didnt change anything vanilla.

What?? That's not a thing, or at least it shouldn't be...

Quote from: Vyguard on December 10, 2021, 06:04:51 pmProblem solved, had to install a clean version of C++ distribution and remove the one I currently had.

I dont even know how that could cause an issue at all, but im glad you got it sorted.

You either have a derped emulator or edited something you shouldnt have. This bug doesnt actually exist.

Quote from: DERIDEX120 on December 08, 2021, 07:40:56 pmsorry to bump an older post here, not sure if this belongs in a new thread or not;

Would any of you mind checking my coding? I've made several tests and obviously there is something fundamental I'm not grasping somewhere.

For context, I am trying to introduce an extra character in the "Dorter2" sequence in the same way enemy units walk in from off the map. (Placed specifically just after the bickering between agrias and gafgarion.) Display a message and teleport out.  this is the code I strung together from examples:


The result is far off from what is intended. "2D" starts already on the map when the event begins and the commands seem to be skipped. (No message displayed, no teleport) The commands and variables seem to be correct, so the issue must be the order in which they were written OR I've overlooked a checkbox in ENTD somewhere?

EDIT: I did use the addunit command when the other units were introduced earlier in the event script.

Unless the unit has 'present' unchecked in the ENTD, there is nothing in your script to stop them from drawing immediately. You are also teleporting to x4, y5. I don't know the map exactly off the top of my head, but i feel like thats not the edge of the map?

Please post full scripts, not just what YOU think is important or causing an issue. Guess work isn't the easiest way to go about this...
Quote from: mikepronin on December 08, 2021, 10:31:39 amanyone can help me apply the Jot5 Easy Mode patch this game a little hard and not getting enough gold to restock your potion and phoenix down
I'm new to this and not sure how to modify the game to make it a little easier. I don't want it really easy just feel a little unbalanced with the CPU doing almost twice the damage I'm putting out.

The CPU should never be spitting out twice the damage you are unless you are talking about bosses. The Easy mode patch is not official, it was made, and then got posted here and it got added to the OP because i didnt want people thinking it was something more than what it was. I don't offer support for it though, you will need to apply it via FFT Patcher

Yeah, if they are benched, then the worldmap condition wont see that he is in formation and wont allow the events to trigger

If you send out people on a proposition, and then beat a chapter and then try to get them back they are set to missing. This is from vanilla, not TLW

I know. I wrote the list into EVSP lol

But the wiki is going to be more accurate

Quote from: DERIDEX120 on November 21, 2021, 11:57:44 amHey, sorry its taken me so long to respond here, been caught up with IRL stuff, anyways, is there any quick reference guide to understanding the variables in this scripting language? let me cite an example.

Ive started with analyzing various script commands like addunit and display message. This is taken from "dorter 2."


I'm pretty sure x0009/x0007 is the actual message located at the bottom of the event, but I cannot determine the value of the other variables. I'm thinking one of them (either directly before or after the message number) must be the unit ID to assign the portrait for the speech bubble, but then what are the others?

as far as understanding addunit, I've analyzed the military academy script:


This is the part where the female knight (87) walks in, shrugs her shoulders and walks out.
what exactly is warpunit used for? I'm trying to understand the coding by which characters enter/leave the map.

80/24 are the unit IDs in those message examples

the unit warps to that location because they werent given a proper location in the ENTD to match the scene, so they warp the unit to that location before they enter the room, so that the unit can properly appear to be coming in from the door.
