Request for someone to look into the Roster Hack, found HERE or to make a new Hack to allow full, normal use of the 4 extra slots normally reserved for guest, specifically for mods that have guests forced only via ENTD.

The current issues with the existing Roster Hack, from my testing, are as follows:.....

Thank you to any who consider looking into this or possibly making a new hack for it


Every time I spent my time reading FTT hacks or FFT wiki, I found  Glain's and Xifanie's work outstanding. I feel like like a baby playing with 2 bricks and thinking that if i assemble them i am a master builder, while they just built the Eiffel tower and say me: "hey, good job assembling those bricks". :cry:

Sorry about that, anyway your hack is already done by Glain. It may be not the best roster hack but it's amazing, though dangerous to use as it is, with Vanilla. You can train all msq guests in random battles, you can control them in those battles (you need to remember to put them back on their guest slot before next main event to avoid f***ing it) and after the game finish you putting guests on those space you can fill it with 4 units that you won't be using in the next battle, but can be switched if needed.. what more can we ask Glain.

All you need to do is chance 16 to 20 in this hack "Switch unit number with L1 and R1 buttons (formation)" and done. It will look like this:
  <Patch name="Switch unit number with L1 and R1 buttons (formation)">
    <Description>
        Switch unit number with L1 and R1 buttons in the formation screen.  Changes unit order as appropriate.  L1 and R1 still work normally (switching the selected unit) in menus.

The key words there are "full, normal use". A workaround that can potentially fuck your game over isn't one that's desired.

Elric won't even let me get away with making a slightly substandard non-battle event; there's no way he'd willingly use an ASM with such a glaring flaw.

It can only f*** the game if the event requires an specific unit in that slot, and from what i read TLW will not put real guest in party roster, until they fully join.

So the 4 slot are like a storage for units you put them there and take them out if you need them, they wont appear on battle formation, but to that case you can change jobs nor equipment in battle formation either. yet its a limitation of 16 units to choose in battle formation while having 4 in cold storage.

TLW doesnt have formation guests, this is correct, but it does use hacks that allow guests to be used in normal battle, since its tied to the unit restriction hack.

Being that this is a base patch for others to build their mods upon, Id rather not do anything that would potentially mess anything up.

As Nyzer said (and knows far too well with the years we've worked together) I couldnt be okay substituting one hack with another that required work arounds and planning to have it act as intended.

I'd prefer to wait until a dedicated Roster Hack is made

I won't say anything about that to avoid wasting time. Still i am committed to help you.
Let's go back to the draw board again:
Quote- While it doesn't show 'GUEST' on people in standard formation, it DOES still show this in Battle Formation, as well as in Battle, which it should only show on ENTD forced Guests.
- When used in battle, units from those last 4 slots act as guests and cannot be controlled.

This doesn't happen to me, there is no 'GUEST' in battle nor battle formation, plus they can be controlled. Are you sure you are not overwriting the roster patch or using an old version?
Quote- When tested with Generics in the last 4 slots, after battle, 3 of the 4 were removed.
- When tested using Rafa and Malak in the first 2 of the last 4 slots, they had prompt to invite them again after each battle.

This issue was discussed by Glain, Pokeytax, and Raven. You need to tweak END flags. I just used what they said to fix that (still it need more testing).
Quote
- Units in these last 4 slots cannot be removed (they don't show up in the list) if you have a full roster upon a join up and are prompted to remove a unit.

I believe it is fixed, still haven't tested, I would need a psx savestate to test this.

Set Zodiac's formula to 100% hit or whatever you want, just make sure it's not NS (No Status)
Set the inflicted status to crystal.

You should probably play around more with the tools, you should be inspired by all the possibilities instead of asking an ASM about one of the most simple things that can be accomplish with FFTPatcher alone.

Fearing that Elric would never reply, i will try to clear some issues with the unknown TLW project, plus this way i can be near to one of her posts :roll:, sorry that was unnecessary.

Quote from: Elric on October 06, 2018, 12:07:30 am
TLW ... does use hacks that allow guests to be used in normal battle, since its tied to the unit restriction hack.

If that hack refers to this: http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=953.msg208303#msg208303, then as Xifanie already wrote: there "is an option to make them uncontrollable in said random battles", plus the "hack is (hopefully) bug-free in vanilla, as I already configured all guest restrictions".
To put it simple the original roster hack or the v2 are not 100% compatible with Xifanie's hack, cuz while roster hack tries to erase guest features at all, Xifanie's tries to save them (or smt like that).

What now then?, i suppose that you (Elric) didn't use the .xml version, but the spreadsheet instead to insert your additions, am i right?
What i need? some sort of explanation of what are you trying to do or achieve with Xifanie's hack and the .xml file generated (you can pm them) to adapt it or the roster hack so you can use both...

With the information provided that's all i can do.  ;)

UPDATE: ok, good to know i already did. Since my mobo died 5 months ago (new one doesnt boot well with 7), i haven't reinstall most of the apps windows use (yeah its quite lazy), which includes the entire office, so i haven't tried a single spreadsheet, just only view their contents (so i was unsure what they did). ;)

The .xml is generated from the spreadsheet. The code doesn't change no matter what is changed in the table... I don't know where you would get that idea. Nothing is hardcoded. You can just download the .xml in the topic itself.

Ok, that really went long. I found some bugs in another of my patches i was breeding 19 chocos with lvl cap 35 but with maxed stats.

Anyway, you can try both patches (it doesn't matter which is first), but remove from xifanie's hack the scus section:
    <Location file="SCUS_942_21" offset="4B8F0">
      1000622E
      02004010
      84000334
      08000334
    </Location>
Cuz it goes over control flags and since you want full control just don't use it.

UPDATE:
I made some more patches to be able to use the roster hack with vanilla (full set attached), It may look long, but it is just ENTD touches (with comments to easy edit) Check glain's asm thread, my last post.

Reikan

Hello.

I want a formula to build a Faith-based melee spellcaster (Kinda like Beowulf except with some damaging skills instead of pure CC). My suggestion is to take slot 18 and make a formula like:

DMG_F(PA*(WP+Y))  Hit_F(PA+X)%

(This way, both the DMG and chance of hit would be dependant on Faith, a thing that no PA/WP formulas have as far as I know)


I know nothing about ASM but I have free time to learn, if anyone wants to give me some light.

Thanks in advance.  :mrgreen:

I didn't tested it. Also you should find another code cave to put the "main code" of your formula since it uses the same as other Glain's hack.

Not sure if it's been done, but has anybody done any work with tying things to the proposition ranks.

While currently eventing is beyond me, the ability to set an event to trigger at a location after reaching treasure hunter 3 etc could open up some side story arcs.

Trying to outwit a rival treasure hunter comes to mind, or a battle map that opens up after a max rank adventurer discovers its location under Goug with some good stealing or move/find item prospects.

Just an idea to add something to the props

Can someone make a working Accessory break for the knight ? I would like to change break MP to Break Accessory .
Also a +1 MA like the Squire skill (forgot the name of it )

I searched "MA" with the forum search tool and didn't see anything like this, so I thought I'd propose a few that hopefully others might find useful if someone could help me out with 'em (admittedly, ASM hacking is a bit intimidating at the moment).

New Formula Requests
All of the following formulas would ideally be unused or blank formulas in FFT Patcher, so as not to lose options.

Scaling Formulas
To reduce the need for having lots of different tier abilities (e.g cure 1, cure 2, cure 3, etc) and/or to scale more smoothly. I estimate them to work almost identically to Formula 5E with a few changes? For ease of viewing, I've color-coded the stats for the formulas to make them stand out a bit better.

Legend Heal, Dmg, CasterFaith, TargetFaith, PA, MA

MA Based Formulas
There's no scaling faith or healing formulas that I could find in FFTPatcher.

  • "Black Mage (Faith Based)" Dmg_(CasterFaith/100)*(TargetFaith/100)*(((MA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "Black Mage (None Faith)" Dmg_(((MA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "White Mage (Faith Based)" Heal_(CasterFaith/100)*(TargetFaith/100)*(((MA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "White Mage (None-Faith)" Heal_(((MA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME



PA/MA Based Formulas
There's not a lot of formulas for hybrid characters. To alleviate this I'd like to propose the following formulas.

  • "Paladin (Faith Based)" Heal_(CasterFaith/100)*(TargetFaith/100)*(((MA+Y)/2)*PA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "Paladin (None Faith)" Heal_(((MA+Y)/2)*PA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "War Mage (Faith Based)" Dmg_(CasterFaith/100)*(TargetFaith/100)*(((MA+Y)/2)*PA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "War Mage (None Faith)" Dmg_(((MA+Y)/2)*PA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "Red Mage (Faith Based)" Dmg_(CasterFaith/100)*(TargetFaith/100)*(((PA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "Red Mage (None Faith)" Dmg_(((PA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "Crusader (Faith Based)" Heal_(CasterFaith/100)*(TargetFaith/100)*(((PA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

  • "Crusader (None Faith)" Heal_(((PA+Y)/2)*MA)#Hit_X+1 Status ME

Hello everyone~

I was wondering if there was a straightforward way to transform a gameshark code into an ASM hack? Specifically I'd like to patch "JP Never Decreases" into my game. The code I found for this is:

D004760C 0001
8011FAD4 0000

Or I suppose if there's already an ASM hack for this, that would also be super. I looked through as many lists as I could but didn't see it.

What, like when you buy a skill you keep the JP?

That would actually be a vaguely interesting concept, just making JP thresholds for every skill.

Otherwise I'd just suggest patching all JP costs to 0
  • Modding version: PSX & WotL

hitokiro

Exactly! It's less about making it easier to buy skills, and more about avoiding the grind with jobs that have multiple 600+ JP skills. I like to think of it more like "well this black mage is pretty experienced...why couldn't he/she just buy all the *aga spells at once?" Having all the jobs cost nothing would mean there'd be no progression, but having the JP just be sort of a flat bar to raise means you're gaining experience and unlocking skills, not buying them with expendable currency.
  • Modding version: PSX

Hm. There would still be some flaws with the idea, though. JP costs would probably have to be raised across the board to balance out the grind time, and then you'd have absolutely no choice when it comes to your job's progression. To each their own, of course, but now that I think about it, it would probably be less appealing to the typical FFT audience.
