Is anyone interested in hardcoded functions in battle.bin?

Some days ago, I found this info from a japan fft website by accident, the hacker made a lot of changes to the original game (such as adding new classes, skills, sprites). There are roughly 18k lines of asm codes. I read some comments, but I am no good at japanese, so does someone know about these functions and is willing to share?

If anyone interest this and there is no English info, I may try to translate the comments to English.

Too late! :twisted:
But seriously, I think we need someone fluent in Japanese to have a look at this stuff. I don't trust automated translations.

Desu desu?  That doesn't make any sense!  Why would you recite a bunch of brand names and then say is is!

On a more serious note, I don't know a lot about Japanese, but my dad does - and is a computer scientist on top of that.  I'll see if he has the time to check it out.

Wow, if I'm not mistaken these are continually being updated... some are even from earlier this week! We should get in contact with this fellow and see what he knows.

Is this the guy who made the FFT FF3 hack and video that can be found on Youtube. With all the Final Fantasy 3 jobs inserted into the game and a final boss battle against a custom looking Zodiac monster.

Holy Shit. This put all my work to fucking shame. These look better than most of the in game portraits...

http://fft.nm.land.to/cgi-bin/src/up0098.gif

also from the same site.

Seems to be the base site, but the only thing I can find of interest is a link to a Wiki.
