Help people be able to help themselves, yes agreed. Never said otherwise. I clearly said dont be a sarcastic jerk. Just because you know something they do not, doesn't mean they are incompetent or stupid, or haven't already spent hours trying to find the answer on their own. Before Lydyns tutorials, this was a common example:
new guy reads an entire sprite tutorial and changes the knight sprite with Shishi. But the sprite is still the default sprite in formation and job change. New guy goes back to tutorial for clues, then tries searching for an hour, and gets stuck. He posts a question explaining what he's looking for.
Reply 1: If you actually took the time to read the tutorial you would have known you can't change the formation sprite or job change sprite with shishi. It clearly states that it changes ONLY the BATTLE SPRITES. Read carefully next time.
Reply 2: The answer to this already exists, do not post new threads like this, it wastes forum space and generates junk threads.
Reply 3: You need to read the forum. There is a lot of information, and you can't just learn it all in a day dude. For formation sprites and stuff, you have to edit the data the UNIT.bin and WLDFACE.bin which can get kinda tricky. There was a thread somewhere that tackles how to do this. Again just read the forum, you'll learn.
*Now out of those 3 replies, which one was helpful? the correct answer is NONE. Each answer just insulted the new guy, and their information is contains only partial truths, and just barely at that.
Truth is, even though they tried to break down the website into sections like Community (which is where the forum is), Downloads, and Resources, these are horrendously out of date, with broken links, downloads of non-updated sprites, and download links to completely absent tools or files. Sure, it does take time to learn, but what the new guy above wanted to know? Anyone who knew how to do it should've been able to write up a decent answer in 1 paragraph and links to the tools in 5 MINUTES.
I think that took me roughly a week to fully research and figure out because of how scattered and crappy the information was 6 years ago. During which time I was ridiculed, like the new guy above. Now I'm not complaining about ffHacktics.com, and I am not faulting them at all; I'm a Network Security Technician, and I know running a website is no walk in the park. All I'm saying is, it shouldn't have to experience such mistreatment, nor should any other person on this forum. If you come across someone's post in any thread asking a question, and you know the the full correct answer, then you can provide it, or links to it. If you aren't going to answer them, or you don't know the answer, and you insist that you want to reply to them still, then practice good manners at least, and don't post anything resembling the 3 examples I posted above.
No Nyzer, it was not in response to your post. You were perfectly fine with your original response except you clearly did not understand what I meant with the Eidolons. You assumed I was refering to Lucavi size sprites, and I was not. There was a time I used to be able to find a sprite that was similar to Rydia, in terms of clothing style, but her skin, clothes and hair were different shades of icy blues, and her hair style was different. It was a human sized Shiva sprite. Can't find it anymore, but anyway that is what I meant.
