Is there a way to fix text bugs for spell/skill quotes?

im sure some of you have notice when i post season 4 loser's bracket matches you'll see some buggy text error....i have brought it up in the season 4 topic...if one of you see this video i was wondering if you know how to fix the spell/skill quote text error because the battle.bin file i originally got from otabo (which is also in philsov's s4 directory) when i import it over the original battle.bin file in CDmage, it somehow screws up the text...watch this video and you'll see what i mean

It looks like the TacText and FFTPatcher files used to make the AI Tournament patch don't match Spell Quotes.

You'll have to rip it open in TacText and fix the Spell Quotes by hand or just turn them off.

Just check in QuickEdit. There should be something called "Ability Quotes" in the dropdown box.

Just keep casting the spell until they say the quote.

it's a 15% chance.

Or you can apply Xif's ASM to display 100% of the time if you need to proofread a whole bunch in game.

I tried tactext again and opened the ffttactext file to patch it to the ISO and the message says "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" does anyone know what that means?

If I'm remembering the errors right, that means some of the text is too long.

Barren

if thats the case, is there a way to disable spell quotes then?

I think Xifanie made an ASM that disables them all, alternately, go in the patcher and uncheck the Spell Quote box from each skill with a quote.

Just disable them ingame.  Can be done mid-battle iirc, and lasts until you toggle them back on.

(Which is why there isn't an ASM for it)

Okay, im in the middle of a AI battle, I hit options during the fight, here's whats there:

cursor movement: A type
cursor repeat speed: regular
cursor repeat on mult. heights: regular
finger cursor repeat speed: regular
message display speed: regular
navigation message: off
show ability name: on
show effect message: off
show exp and jp gained: off
target flashing: on
show unequippable item by job: off
max equip at job change: off
sound: stereo
return to initialize settings: customize

What do I do to turn off the spell quotes during the game or did you mean by something else?

A vid of how to disable spell quotes in anyway would be nice

pretty sure it's the Effect Message option, but if you're getting them with that disabled then possibly Ability name?

Barren

I don't think ability name is the problem.... just did another test, ability name shows what the character is doing or what reaction is going off

so in process of elimination, ability name is not the issue...not sure what effect message does though :/

Yeah, I think you're just going to have turn off Quotes individually or fix the problem yourself in Tactext (if you can find it).

Alternately, you could maybe ask Xifanie if she has something that's the opposite of her "Spell quotes always show up hack", but turning off the Quotes for everything is probably easier.

Barren

That's the thing though: I tried looking for a check box of some sort to turn off spell quotes but I cant seem to find it :(

Unless someone has a really good idea on how to turn them off best I can do is somehow make sure that the spell has no text.....

Again a video on how to turn off spell quote would be nice
