New Project Ideas / FFT: Raison D'être
January 01, 2013, 12:40:13 pm


• Demo Video •

Introduction
So here it is - this patch is designed to be a mixture between a balance patch and a challenging patch. It aims to keep as much of the spirit of Vanilla FFT while making it more challenging for those who've played it twenty, fifty, or even a hundred times over. Certain things we've come to expect from Vanilla FFT will remain the same, such as movements, accessories, etc, etc. However things such as speed growths, and running into boss-like enemies in the story that have player-combos in mind like having Move +3 or Counter Magic will also be common. If everything works out, the player will still be able to create silly combos of destruction, but the enemy will have it in equal measure.

Clips from FFH Chat;

Quote12:04   Lydyn: While my mind is on ASM ... is there a way to keep the "old" blade grasp while nerfing the player version? I know somehow hacked the black support above Short Charge. Maybe copy/paste blade grasp (not sure if that's, that easy) onto it and then use ASM to nerf the default one?
12:04   Lydyn: someone*
12:05   fdc: Well, yeah, you can do that, but wouldn't someone notice?
12:05   fdc: I think an "easier" solution is to have it so immortal flagged units
12:05   fdc: get the boosted version
12:06   fdc: easier in the sense there's less assembly involved


Quote12:13   Lydyn: Regardless... would it be easy to ASM the immortal flag for multiple boosts? Like giving them the original blade grasp (while player can only guard against bladed weapons), original MP switch (while player takes spillover damage to HP), etc?
12:13   fdc: Yeah
12:13   fdc: just has to be done separately
12:13   fdc: but the check is the same either way.
12:13   Lydyn: So seperate ASM, but it'd result in the same thing?
12:14   fdc: Separate added ASM checks
12:14   fdc: one for each abilty in question
12:14   fdc: *ability
12:14   fdc: but conceptually not hard


The Request: So basically, I was hoping to catch someone's interest and request that when the immortal flag is checked in ENTD that it 'boosts' two skills, changing them from the modified version back to it's default vanilla version.
Modified MP Switch: Any excess damage from MP Switch no longer goes to waste. It will damage the target's HP if there is any excess.
EX: Attacker deals 150 damage, Defender has 50 MP. The Defender would lose 50 MP (all of it) then receive 100 Damage.
Modified Blade Grasp: Blade Grasp now blocks all sharp weapons (except axes and flails). Sharp weapons being anything with an edge, like swords, katanas, spears, etc. but no arrows/bullets.

So an example would be, I give an enemy Blade Grasp in the ENTD part of the patcher, so it blocks all sharp weapons (except axes and flails) until I check the immortal flag - now the enemy's Blade Grasp blocks all physical attacks like it did in the vanilla version of the game.

I would've sworn there was an ASM floating around that made it so you only earned one level per battle... but I've been searching for hours and haven't found it. If it hasn't been made at all, how hard would it be to do and would someone be willing to do it? I'll definitely be using it, but it's more or less for a personal patch I've been playing around with. Though I've been debating of releasing it once I have everything edited just in case someone else wants to mess around with it too.  :P

The Lounge / CW Cheat, Custom Fireware, and PSP!
August 19, 2012, 08:48:02 pm
I've been searching for hours on how to do any of this and the furthest I've gotten is that you need custom firmware to use both CW Cheat and the PSP ISO ... does anyone have any accurate information on the step-by-step process starting from 6.20 Firmware on the PSP 3000 (Slim) all the way to installing and running CW Cheat and PSP ISOs? Thanks.

Spriting / Crossed Swords - Female Warrior Sprite
July 22, 2012, 12:48:39 pm
It's almost done! I need some assistance though, if someone wouldn't mind doing so. I'm having a hell of a time trying to get the attack animation to look right because the chest is custom made (thanks to Twin!). I'm unsure how many hours I've spent trying to get it right, but it's not really getting anywhere ... that and the profile/side view as well. I'm using the Miluda sprite for the warrior's head, so here's both sheets;
6
Focus of the Patch
The focus is going to be around five base classes that each tier off into a more offensive and defensive variant, and each class will wield a primary weapon and 2-3 secondary weapons, where the final skills of said class depend on the primary weapon. This patch will also be using the elements to construct a rock, paper, scissors mentality, using fire, lightning, ice, water, and earth. While Special Classes (such as Agrias and Ramza) will use the holy and dark elements.

Monsters: Have more unique monsters and base them around elements as well. Things like Goblins being based in earth (cannot understand why they were ever weak to ice).
Lower Numbers: This means lower stats, less Gil per battle, while items will be noticeably more expensive.
No Chemist: Instead, use item innate all, but in turn make potions either weaker and/or more expensive.
Squire is now Commoner!: Changing Squire to Commoner (Description: Where everyone starts and no one knows how to do anything. Should probably pick up a sword and choose another job for adventuring!).
Limited / Replaced Special Characters: The removal of some or many of them ... maybe replace Cloud with another special appearance?
More Weapon Selection: Eight weapons per job, giving you a total of anywhere from 24-32 weapons to choose from per class.
Limited R/S/M: Limit how many there are. Like removing Move +3 and such.
Zero charge spells: It'll have to be balanced in such a way that melee classes use more MP per ability to portray the fact that they're melee, but I think this'll be interesting.

Help! / Tutorial Battle Editing
November 06, 2011, 01:03:02 pm
Hello FFT! ... I have a question for the event editors out there. Is there an easy way to make it so that one of the tutorial battles acts like a normal battle? As in, you start it up and it just displays defeat all enemies like a random battle? Thanks.

PSX FFT Hacking / Formula Changes

Not sure where else I can post this, as I'm unaware of who is around, who is active, how their topics are set-up, etc.

All I want is to change formulas to 5E) Dmg_(MA*Y) #Hit_(X+1) and 1E) Dmg_(MA*Y) #Hit(Rdm{1,X}).

Okay, so I have two examples ... different palette changes and the second one has very minor edits to some more shadow on the face. Any comments or questions are welcome, but do keep in mind I'm not the best spriter like most of the others.

Old Project Ideas / Aevum: The Black Rose
November 01, 2011, 12:43:19 am
The coin felt heavy in his hand. The golden surface reflected a heavenly image of gates, shining in the morning sun. Somehow it felt like his entire life had lead to this one event, the gentle hand of fate guiding him to their city, Telid'. He was to meet the living gods, beings so powerful and magnificent that no one knew what else to call them. Only years earlier, Virkum, set himself to gain an audience with these living gods in order to save his family from starving.

So much has happened since then, so much so that it seemed like a lifetime ago. He had tasted bloodshed and power since then and though he was no greedy man, it had changed him, for the better or so he hoped. His eyes finally gazed up as the gates opened, revealing a palace that was made of silver marble laced with black and seemed to glow with the radiance that was godhood. Little did he know, this was but the start of a long journey.

Goal: The goal of Aevum: The Black Rose is to best reflect the magic that has been designed for a role-play I made on Roleplayer Guild.

Our Hero: Virkum



List of Changes to meet this Goal
• There will be eleven classes, reach reflecting a level of mastery over magic, from Novice, Apprentice, Journeymen, and beyond.
• There will be 8 words that the player can learn through-out the game, with room for 4 more if needed. Some examples include, Flame, Thunder, Life, and Warrior.
• Abilities will require the Word of Focus support ability to use each type of magic. For example, to use [Flame: Fireball], you'd have to equip [Word of Focus: Flame] as a support ability. Each class will have several types of word magic, but characters will only be able to equip two words of focus at any one time.
• Fusion Magic will be present, magic that will be useable once two words are combined. An example is using [Word of Focus: Flame] and [Word of Focus: Warrior]. This would grant you the ability to use [Flame Warrior: Fire Strike] in battle.
• Using FDC's ASM, characters will be limited to one level per battle along with 150 JP awarded for winning each map. Also, random encounters will not exist.
• Special characters besides Virkum (Ramza with a new sprite) will not be playable at all, since Holy Knights, Dark Knights, and Soldiers do not exist in this type of setting. However, sidequests will still be available.
• Price adjusting.
• More focus on melee (since magic will be - generally - more limited via amount of options).
• Only blades, spears, polearms (or staves), daggers, bows, crossbows, ninja blades, and katanas.

List of Changes that may happen
• New Spell Effects
• New Music
• Slightly altered scenes (a combined effort to get rid of special characters).
• Lower Gold (Gil) rewards.
• Light, Medium, Heavy Armor.

List of changes that have happened
• Renamed skills in the FFT Patcher for better organization.
• Completed Virkum's sprite.
• Made final decision on max HP/MP/PA/MA.
• Completed Job Class, skills, and skillsets up to Journeymen.
• Applied ASM hacks to ISO.
• Added Additional effects to equipping words.

Flame: +8% PA
Thunder: +9% Speed
Ice: +6% MA
Earth: +5% HP & MP
Life: +10% HP
Bless: +66% C-Ev
Curse: Cancels: Stop, Slow, and Death Sentence
Warrior: +10% MP

• Came up with all new generic skillset, skills, and job names.

Job Names: Novice, Apprentice, Journeymen, Adept, Expert, Master, Grandmaster, Demi-Deity, Lesser Deity, Greater Deity, Immortal Deity
Skillset names: Incantation I-III For Ramza, Magic I-XI for generics.

Spriting / Half-cape?
October 29, 2011, 01:36:34 am
Sorry if this is too vague, but I'm trying to create a half-cape for my sprite. I've tried multiple ways using the Lancer cape, but always looks really weird ... it's like I can't get the curve of the cape on the angles to look right. Any advice or examples to help me out?

The Lounge / Ivalice: Rebirth - FFT Fan RPG
May 26, 2010, 08:44:23 pm
As many of you know, I've been in the works of making an RPG that is set 30 years after FFT had taken place. It focuses on Esteria, a Holy Blade of the church suddenly finding herself questioning her loyalty to the same church she serves. King Delita Hyral had just passed away a few months ago and his grandchild, Prince Clemence, has taken the throne. Many still don't know of Ramza's tale and the church holds power ...

The Lounge / Skills for my RPG
May 10, 2010, 10:21:02 pm
I just need some minor help ... trying to come up with 14 skills for my 6 classes, each.
I've got;
• Holy Blade
• Dragoon
• Cleric
• Warlock
• Druid
• Archer

Names and/or description of what said skill would do would be a huge help.

Note: This isn't for FFT.

Spriting / Cactuar?
April 27, 2010, 09:24:48 pm
So, yeah, this sucks ... but at least it's decent for having absolutely no reference to go to (besides colors). I could really use some suggestions to keep this going - if anyone has any. Wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to do it in a 45 angle... ugh.

Spriting / ZODIAC (Image)
April 24, 2010, 05:43:31 pm
Okay ... trying to figure out what sort of image this is - does anyone know? Shishi has a BIG problem with exporting it, but I'm wondering if I get image type correct it may import it?

Old Project Ideas / FFT: Revised
April 21, 2010, 10:29:16 pm
Inspiration: The basis of the patch had been the idea of giving each class an exclusive weapon, such as giving samurais only katanas and allowing no one else to wield them besides Samurais. That was the basis anyways, but it's since grown from several ideas both from my own mind and paths other people on IRC have lead me down.

Goal: To provide an alternative battle system to the original game. Changes to almost everything including (but not limited to) items, jobs, monsters, battle events, abilities, special characters, weapons, armor, and battle set-up.

Comments: For now, I'd just like to thank everyone for all the help - and you know who you are! I've been given some awesome ideas and advice concerning the making of this so far and look forward to more suggestions. Thankfully, no one has really suggested anything that's out of place for this patch, so it's nice to know that the community has at least a feel for what I'm getting at. Anyways, without further ado, the changelog!

Spriting / WLDFACE - Clean Portraits
April 21, 2010, 03:54:10 am
It's 0150 in the morning and I've been searching all over the place for the answer to my question ... so I apologize if this has been asked elsewhere.

I'm using the FFT UNIT/WLDFACE program and finally got to the point where I can begin editing the portraits ... but, assuming I have custom portraits (of those like Agrias Redone and Beatrix) and even original ones with new palletes - how do I extract those 'cleanly' so I can simply import them over the old portrait? Thanks.

Help! / Replacing Elidibs
April 18, 2010, 06:41:55 pm
All right, I tried searching on the forums and asking in chat ... so, I'm posting. I'm trying to replace Elidibs' zodiac form with another, but I'm not sure what unit to replace in what ENTD (I'm assuming 1D9 though).

Help! / Weapon Glitches
April 11, 2010, 01:47:59 am
All right, here's the scenario, I have made all new weapons and made books and crossbows for weapons. However, when using books, the battle animation looks like a shaking pole and the crossbow looks like a really badly-done gun shooting. Here's the patcher for both, maybe I missed something;

Help! / Job Tree issue
October 28, 2009, 09:40:10 pm


All right, so here's a logic puzzle for someone. Looking at this, it should be assumed if I make a unit a Level 1 Knight, that he'll naturally have Squire, Chemist, Knight, and Monk unlocked.

Instead though, when entering the game, he has Squire, Chemist, Knight, Monk, Archer, Thief, Priest, & Wizard unlocked. Anyone figure out why?

Edit: I did change Monk's knight requirement back down to level 1, but it doesn't change anything.

Help! / FFTacText Editor; Object Referance
October 24, 2009, 06:37:29 pm
I'm getting the message (when patching the ISO with the text editor); "Object Referance not set to an instance of an object."

Does anyone know what's going on? I've been editing quotes all day and some names and stuff using quickedit. Maybe the ones with "No messages" aren't able to hold quotes?

Help! / Spriting Help
October 24, 2009, 01:00:30 pm
Hey, just need some quick help for my own personal patch. I'm trying to replace the Bard/Dancer sprites with those of the ninja - which are Type1 instead of Type2. I'm not sure how to go about this using the v457 Shishi Sprite Editor, as it's new to me.

I changed the types on the scroll box, but the bottom half of the new ninja sprite is all screwed up.

Thanks.

Seems like a few people have been asking where I've gone, so I'm dropping by to let you guys know what's going on. Mostly, I've joined the Air Force and I'm going to school right now, so that takes up most of my time. That and with some other activities I've been up to, I probably won't get to hacking tactics anytime soon, but feel free to hit me up if you want. I'll try and check up when I can. :)

Spriting / Portraits into Sprites

Spriting / Lydyn/Vampire Sprite
December 13, 2008, 09:02:06 pm


Okay, I'm just asking for some tips or help for this ... for some reason this bothers me. Since the Vincent Sprite is what I'm using which is based off of the Bard, it -looks- right, but ... it's a walking animation. Won't that just empty space look really odd?

Just letting everyone know I'm taking a little bit of a break. With the holidays and the new game I found (Perfect World), I thought... I'd just hang around there for a little bit.

Probably won't be a really long break though. I'll be picking up where I left off when I get back. :) *Cookies for all.*

Spriting / Tonberry Revived
December 01, 2008, 11:32:08 pm
Okay! The only problem I've seen in my short tests is that this is missing a casting animation. Any suggestions on how to add one? Or where?



Note: I've yet to adjust the first palette here, as the yellow and green aren't the best at the moment.
