Ah, my bad :) **Pride's CT hack works when adding a ct to confuse - just add the asm and set the ct in patcher!

I had another question.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask,
But does there already exist a hack that grants all Monsters the ability to use basic Attack? thus freeing up a slot on their monster skills while still giving them access to regular physical damage. I have noticed monsters call regular attack or possibly frog attack while under berserk (this might call to the same attack slot?) so maybe the asm just gives monsters that option ? i am not sure.


Yeah I got it to work after talking to some people on the FFT Arena discord. Turns out I was just being a massive derp and miscounted, setting Silence to have the CT instead.

How would I go about changing the Gather skill to increase the MA stat instead of PA .

Hi!

I know i can enable evasion while charging, using the status evadability hack, but i wonder if it would be possible to also cancel charging when you dodge, parry or block attacks.

Hi! I want to use a modified version of Bisenboat "Absorb Mp:Limit Break" posted in page 15

<Patch name="Absorb Used MP -> Limit Bar">

In less words "Obtain MP:half of all Hp damage"
But for the entire game, make all have Limit Bar, without use the skill Absorb Used MP.
I use the ASM "Start with 0 MP" so the metod to obtain Mp in my mod is by recharge with one Skill in each Job, but also it will be great to gained Mp when received all type of damage (Hp Damage/2 to Mp).

Main request: Nullify EXP gain hack.

Hi guys,  I'm a bit desperate, cause my patch, the way I envisioned it, really need a hack that nullifies EXP Gain. I want the characters to stay stuck on the level that I set for them on the FFT Patcher.


Extra challenge: Job multipliers scale with Job levels hack.

And MUCH more complicated, is it possible, a hack where class stats multipliers, scale with job level?
Ex:
job level 1 = 100% multiplier (stays the same)
job level 2 = 105% multiplier
Job level 3 = 110% muktiplier
job level 4 = 115% multiplier
job level 5 = 120% multiplier
job level 6 = 125% multiplier
job level 7 = 130% multiplier
job level 8 = 135% multiplier
Mastered = 150% multiplier

I dont know if I really would use this, if this is indeed possible, but I find this much more interesting than leveling up to level 99 through EXP.

Request ARH (ability requirement hach?)for Charge abilities.

I need Charge abilities to be integrated with the ARH spreadsheet, to make some abilities only available to bow users and some only to crossbow users.

This is specially to crossbows to give them a mechanic where they need to be reloaded, so this is why the CT requirement. O want to make crossbows powerful but slow, more close to the way they really were. This way I would nerf their normal attack, and they need Charge to function properly.

If you have other ideas to how I can make a "crossbow needs to be reloaded mechanic" Im all ears.

Request: Draw Out Redesign Hacks

This comes in two ways, the first more simple and useful, the second is a really big push, but could be nice.


1) Draw Out considers the equipped weapon in its inventory.

This is for lets say, theres only one Masamune in the game, and you want to use the Masamune Draw Out while having it equipped, so it needs to show up in the inventory to be selected.

2)Assign each Draw Out skill to a.weapon type instead of individual Katana:

Why this? Hear me out.

Combining this with the first hack and Xifanie's Skillset X Innate All hack, we could have an specific skill locked to each characters equiped weapon type. This innate  wouldn't mess the game because monsters would have no weapon to acess it.

This could be a really cool way to give the game limits/finisher moves.

I particularly only need the first hack, but I guess I'm tripping a little.

Unless you are willing to learn how to write the ASMs yourself, do NOT plan your hack around them.

A lot of the time, on the rare occasions requests here ARE fulfilled, they're quick ASMs that the writers haven't tested.

That said, at least some of what you want could probably be done by the hack that attaches extra skills to weapons. Not sure how public that is though

I had a question about the 2 swords penalty ASM.
I've seen a few versions of it on the board.

1. Let's you put in the XX and YY to have reduced damage on each hit.
But it seems to cause crashes.

2. Has it attached to ATK UP, but is talking about dividing 2 different things by 128 (which I don't get)

3. Has a working hack that said it was 75% damage, but is actually 67%. Would anyone happen to know what part of the code (pasted below) is changeable to affect the damage formula?

<Patch name="2 Swords Penalty">
    <Description>2/3 damage per hit by units with 2 swords.  Affects all abilities with Formulas 01-07, no effect on other physical formulas.</Description>

Hi Nyzer. I've known this forum, played its hacks watched its youtube videos for a few years now, but only now I've decided to try and make my own mod.

I need to read a lot of stuff to catalog all you guys developed, there's a lot of hacks and tips lost in old topics, that is not in the FFT Patcher or the tools section. I consider myself smart, but I'm smart to also recognize what i don't know, and I'm not a data programmer, I have ideas of how ASM Hacks works, but I can't write my own right now. Once I've tested and done all I can with what is available, then I'll proceed to try and learn some ASMhacking to do wat I still need.

Right now, yes, the nullify EXP request for example. If no one develop one, for now I'll minimize stat growth to the minimum (255 C values rates in all stats).

The reason I'm launching ideas is: if someone find them interesting enough to develop, win for them and win for me, right?

Right now all i can do is that, try to inpire people.

I've got no problem with trying to inspire ideas for mutual benefit, I'm just saying that if you're going in with the expectation that you'll need certain hacks to make your mod work, you'd better be prepared from the start to have to make those hacks yourself. Maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised, but just don't plan on it.

You will usually get a better response if you attempt some research on the subject and ask more specific questions on what to modify. The adage that the best way to get a correct answer is to post the wrong one holds true.

Start by searching for "experience" on the wiki.

https://ffhacktics.com/w/index.php?search=experience&title=Special%3ASearch&go=Go

Since you're just nullifying experience you could try to look for comments that tell you what is happening where, and set the gains to zero.

If you want to learn how to write ASM hacks you could start by watching any of the tutorials in the tutorials section.

This is more of a suggestion than a request. I was just thinking about how equipment breaking sucks and often results in a full reset. What if, instead of breaking, gear just became unequipped instead? To give this more value Equip Change would have to be modified to a single item and to take a full turn if it doesn't all ready.

If I could do this hack I would've but it's more than just swapping a few bytes around. I definitely don't need this hack for anything but as a quality of life hack I think it's more than a good enough idea to put out there for others who may be interested in toying with idea.

I know there's a hack to make broken equipment reappear at the Fur Shop, but I don't know how feasible it might be to make that work for the regular inventory.

Thanks Nyzer, I am aware of this hack. I've messed with it in the past. It's buggy. Iirc, pretty much everything that gets broken appears in the Fur Shop, enemy and ally gear alike and it might even make duplicates.

Again, this isn't really a problem that I'm looking to get solved. I'm just putting ideas out there.

Well, this certainly was unexpected. Thank you. I really like the idea of knights disarming their foes instead of breaking their stuff.

Does this really make it so stolen items do the same thing? Because that doesn't make a lot sense to me.

Yeah, I based this off Razele's hack, which runs during the routine where it sets the targeted equipment to FF(nothing). So for now, it affects both broken and stolen equipment.
