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

Dammit Square!

On the other hand what about those XXXXXXXX in the bottom? Are they useful for something, maybe the Now Loading could be placed there, and even with a nicer looking.

Not really sure to post this worksheet here.

This is a little sheet i've done for the Magic evasion by Job hack.


Great!, thanks a bunch for making that hack dummy friendly pal.

Keep up the good work!
Hey Elric where did you get the sprite for the knight between Balthier and Wiegraf? I'm interested on that one.

Thanks. In time I'l try to add the rest of the units as a side project when I'm burned out from my main one.

Sorry for double post
@Timbo There is the archer. I'll try to tackle the rest later.

Quote from: Timbo on May 04, 2020, 07:27:31 pmI love this thing! Have you ever considered doing the other humanoid undead units from Poeskas Lake and Yuguo Woods?

It sounds interesting. Perhaps I should start with the Archer.

Udated first post with updated version and new sprite!
Hello there!

This question might sound silly, but the thing it's that I hit a wall. I found the info on the wiki and also the routine that checks for status to do not engage Learn by hit, but this is where I'm lost.

018e784: 02002021 addu r4,r16,r0
0018e788: 0c01786c jal 0x0005e1b0   check status
0018e78c: 34050004 ori r5,r0,0x0004
0018e790: 14400035 bne r2,r0,0x0018e868      branch status present

If r5= the status set that will be check, how did it determine that was all those status (Blood Suck, Petrify, Confusion, Berserk, Stop, Sleep, Don't Act, Frog, Charm and, of course, Dead, Crystal and Treasure) with only 0004?

Or is there something more complicated than I'm missing due my lack of knowledge? (of course this is the answer)

Thanks in advance.

The Lion War / About the future New Game+ feature
April 11, 2020, 10:17:59 pm
Hello there!
Simple question: If this feature ends getting on this patch do you guys know if is going to be from the very beginning, or right before the last battles series at Orbonne?

Not to be pushy, is just that I was thinking of something that could be achieved on my project depending on this.

Thanks and keep up the good work!
Quote from: Xifanie on April 08, 2020, 05:33:22 pmYes, the unit will still be in your roster available for the next fight right away. I was trying to avoid any ambiguity but it looks like I failed. Can you think of a way to reword the description to make it crystal clear?

Just add:
Units won't be lost permantly as with crystal or treasure, also the Kill counter on Brave Story screen will not increase.

My two cents.
Quote from: Xifanie on April 08, 2020, 03:35:32 amNo, it doesn't use any status other than dead, not even the immortal flag. Turns out a death counter of 0xFF will show stars, so I just prevented the death counter from decreasing if 0xFF. Otherwise I use the ??? stats flag as a visual cue to tell the player the unit can't be interacted with anymore and is not revivable like a guest would be.

Quite impressive indeed. I would never thought about the death counter.
Couple of questions:
The unit will still be alive after the battle ends?
Will this still counts towards the Kill count on the Brave History?
Thanks in advance
Jesus Christ you are a mind reader!!
I was thinking about a way to make this yesterday!
In any case, this will allow to keep the unit after battle and does not use additional statuses right?
Sorry if it is a silly question its 2AM here
Quote from: Nyzer on April 03, 2020, 12:43:36 amI don't think that really addresses the issue, does it?

Well according to the wiki, that address handles the skillset check for removing Charge, it is changed from 08 to FFFF so, I think it might work
Hello there!

Try this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<Patch name="Silly hardcoding removal, related to skillset 08">
    <Description>If you use skillset 08 (charge) for anything other than charge, you want to use this hack.  This eliminates the hardcoding that causes characters to cancel their own spells by moving.</Description>

I haven't tested yet but the source is more than trustworthy.

PSX FFT Hacking / Inflict status question
April 01, 2020, 07:28:16 pm
Hello there!

I apologize if this question is dumb but I'm having second thoughts about what I'm doing.
The thing is like this:
If I add a store inflict status on a formula routine and specify the status on the routine itself instead of using the Procs box for status WITHOUT adding the check for valid status changes, will it be inflicted?
Say that I want to add petrify but adding all pertaining code on the formula and not adding the check. If a unit that has inmunity to petrify (except for immortals) will be petrified?

Sorry if my explanation is not good.

Thanks in advance

If I may add something.
In the end Blue Mage should use quirky or "unique" magic. In my take I will do that instead of using something that deals damage. That way the stats re balance might not be as difficult. Although I still think that might be too much work, I also think that might be enjoyable.

My humble pair of cents.

@Heisho Mind if I add that to my evergrowing first post?  Thanks a lot for the idea/formula!

Not at all. There is not much I can offer, but at least is something.

Hello there!

In my patch I'm using skills that doesn't rely on MA except for accuracy. Emmy created a lot of formulas that can be used for this purpose (i'm using various formula hacks from her set).
As from me, I created a functional formula for Transfusion. Combined with ARH to be used only on critical.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

  <Patch name="Form 21 - Transfusion">
    <Description>Heals HP and MP to target equal to MaxHP and MP from caster/ Deals MaxHP and MP DMG to caster</Description>

Yeah, it is actually War Trophy items when they get to the room she is held captive. If I remember correctly what I saw at the PSP info on the Patcher the units that provide those trophies are hidden in the other side on the room.
The items were: Golden Hairpin (A6), H Bag(76), Sprint Shoes (D5), Diamond Armlet (E0) and Sortilege/Salty Rage (EF)

Hello there!
Sorry for being late to party.
First of all, congrats Elric and Co., this is a great work you guys have done. Second I have been poking around the patch with Patcher tools and I found you guys made a new formula for Barrage and Ashley skills, I'm eager to know more about that. Finally I've trying to track where can I change the items from the Agrias Birthday and the rescue Reis event. I checked the ENTD but found nothing, perhaps I'm being clueless and the answer is really close.
Along some other stuff I'll wait until the ASM and resources are released from you guys.

In the meantime kudos for the whole team this is most excellent work.
