Final Fantasy Tactics: Champion (Update - ASMs being worked on)

Started by Pride, March 05, 2011, 12:34:53 am

Pride

Overview

With the end of the Fifty Years' War, the High Priest Funeral decides that there is cause of celebration. A tournament between the powerful warriors across Ivalice is announced and there are many that wish to join, whether it be for the grand gil prize that is offered to the champions or be it the need to test one's ability. Each region (Fovoham, Lionel, Gallione, Lesalia, Limberry, and Zeltennia) of the game host different tournaments that lead into the final one at Murond. Each "tournament" or series of battles will be roughly five to seven. There will also be various other side quest and other challenging battles spread out through the map, which will often contain great rewards. The Deep Dungeon will also appear as an optional set of very challenging battles late into the tournaments.

Recent Events
Okay since I had problems with my laptop and I have to restart this project completely, I'm just going to post the concept here and updated it while I continue my work on it. This was a project I started a while ago with the basic idea of having a tournament based Final Fantasy Tactics, where the central focus is just battling with so me cheesy fighting-game-type story. I put this on hold when I found another project with a similar goal was being worked on, which is now the archived Ivalice Arena. I began working on a revamp of the vanilla Final Fantasy Tactics and learning other aspects of modding, such as editing story line progression, Attack.OUT editing, and asm. After the collapse of IA, I began tinkering with picking up the tournament base. Roughly two months ago, I put down the vanilla project I was working on and fully began working on this again until the unfortunate event . So, I might as well announce this and keep an update thread. Hopefully people will enjoy what I'm working on (this thread might keep me working as well).



  • Reconstruction of Test.EVT, Attack.OUT, and WLDCore.BIN. In other words, the entire story line of Final Fantasy Tactics is gone and I'm replacing it with my needs to complete this project. New events and overhauled battles
  • Elemental weakness becomes x1.5 instead of x2.
  • Spells will be either Ally or Enemy only to remove the stupidity of the AI that will target two of its own allies just to hit one enemies.
  • Compatibility gets changed so it has less effect, going down to 25% for Best/Worst, 12.5% for Good/Bad.
  • Reactions are no longer triggered by Brave and trigger at a flat rate of 65%.





Because of the premise of the patch, this will be getting a completely overhaul to make the AI use the jobs more effectively, more focused, and remove many of the broken options in general. All jobs will be unlocked from the beginning with a set level of 35, with all skills learned as well, which also means all jobs will also have the same growth. 5 HP / 5 MP / 50 PA / 50 MA / 255 Spe


This is a list of Reactions, Support, and Movements that have been removed from the player, whether due to being broken or being just being irrelevant due to other abilities.

@ Kagebunji

There are a few sprites I would want in the future but currently I just want to get the mechanics and game play down before I really start looking and asking around for sprites.

Good to see the whole IA thing is still on-going. I remember coming back like a week after R999 after me for help on it only to see that he got banned for reasons that I still have no idea why (like most anything else that happens around here).

If you need help with this, I'll be up for trying. I'm not sure how much help I would be, but it would be nice to have a break from my own patch.

Well I still don't have classes and weapon ideas finalized. Just general opinions and criticisms is one of the best things I can get right before more things begin to fall into place. : )

Update. Did work on the opening event, figuring out what numbers I'll need for the scus editing and did the little road from Lesalia to Goland. I opened a channel to show events, jobs, and other mechanics I would like to share with everyone. I want to upload videos of my progress fairly regularly.

Alright after being busy for a few days...

update - Finished the battle layouts for the first series of battles at Igros each one leads the next with the battle formation being in between each, the two talking events still need to be completed but they will be at a later date.

I know I haven't posted recently but I've been hard at work creating asm's for this. I'm also preparing to write all of the new formulas need for the patch. I also need to update the OP with the new jobs and mechanics but I'll do that later today after I've gotten some sleep. The ones below are working to their full extent and I have no issues with them.

--New Support Abilities Completed--

Vehemence - Increase the damage dealt on Magical and Physical Attacks in exchange for an increase in damage received.
Steadfast   - Reduce the damage received by Magical and Physical Attacks in exchange for a decrease in damage dealt.
Unscarred  -  Increase damage dealt and reduce damage received on both Magical and Physical attacks only when at 100% health.
Blessed    - Increase the amount healing abilities do (MP, HP, and revive formulas all heal more) and increase the amount healed when using a healing ability.
Turbo MP - Increase the amount of MP used in order to deal more magical damage.
New Fury Routine - (Attacker Brave +10) * (Target Brave + 10) * Damage / 10000
Weapon XA Calculations

Currently Working On...
Pierce   - Ignore the Target's defensive protection (Protect, Defense Up, Steadfast, etc.)
Unaware - Ignore the Attacker's offensive enhancements (Vehemence, Magic Attack Up, Attack Up, etc.)
Geomancy  - Ignore the target's defensive elemental properties (resist, null, absorb) and deal neutral or weak damage.
