Any hex editor that isn't broken will work.

another question, if I edit all of these things will I still be able to use all final fantasy 6 editing programs such as FF3USME for example?
They'll work, but since the names will likely be moved, the editors won't show the updated (and expanded) names. It will rely on the old location with the old lengths.

Assembly. Learn it. There was a time when my knowledge was as much as yours. The thread to prove it. That thread was made about a week after the project was started, to put things in perspective.

The only thing not listed in that thread to my knowledge was what needed to be done to battle.

Code: [Select]
All of these follow the same format
00    = end
01    = line break/new line
02 xx = write a number, 2 tiles right-aligned
03 xx = draw tile xx, seems to be exactly like 20 - FF below; no known differences
04 xx = palette used for the tile
05 xx = draw xx empty spaces
06 xx = draw Magitek name
07 xx = draw character 1 xx, x being something related to that character (00 is name, 01 is current HP, 02 is max HP or gauge, 03 is current MP, 04 is max MP, 05 and 06 are unknown)
08 xx = draw character 2 xx, see above
09 xx = draw character 3 xx, see above
0A xx = draw character 4 xx, see above
0B xx = draw monster xx
0D xx = draw command xx
0E xx = draw Item name (icon too, if one exists)
0F xx = draw Spell name
12 xx = draw item type (US version only)
16 xx = write a number, 3 tiles right-aligned
17 xx = draw Dance name
18 xx = draw Rage name
19 xx = draw Lore name
1A xx = draw Esper name
20 - FF = write a letter (see battle's/FWF's table file)

A bunch of movies!

Bubble Bobble, Super Bubble Bobble (it's 2 parts), Darkwing Duck, and Guerrilla War.

All need Nestopia v1.40

In preparation for the 1.1.9 upgrade (and to help Leno's sanity with the backup process) some pruning has taken place. And by "some" I mean one thread, Gaming Progress. There might be more pruning on the way, that'll depend. If anything breaks, I probably did it. :whoa:


Ok, we're up to 1.1.9 now. If anything happens, blame me for it. :happy:

Did you loop the Fanatics tower triggers or did you actually draw more floors?  And if the second is the case did you also draw more rooms for the extra doors?
That's for us to know and for you guys to find out. :wink:
* Lenophis begins evil schemification

Ok so without being sarcastic why not tell me what the deal is.  I haven't read through the entire topic.  If this is some sort of joke or whatnot I don't get it.
This is on me. I was commenting on IRC about how you just discovered a year-old movie, and sarcastic tones took over, by many people. :sad:

In the same way that the game needed a Music Box (no). Besides, with how long ago we put the option in the load screen, it was about time we got it working. :happy:

Pandora's Box / Re: Screenshots!
« on: May 16, 2009, 05:38:11 PM »
That location string you see at the top of the screen was set in the original game. It was even set to show up, however, it never did. It was probably assumed to be normal behavior that it never show up, but looking at the data says other things.

I don't remember if FF6A made this string appear or not, but I'll just assume it did since it made others appear. :tongue:

Eat that, FF6A. :tongue:


This is what I get for pirating, I guess--
Uhhh, what? I was promised angst. Where is it?

Well, I have no screenshots, so it wouldn't exactly work in the projects forum.

As for Pandora's Box, maybe you guys should assume a lower profile and stop posting updates on
"Oooh! Oooh! Like dis!?"


One poster there reacting to the CE news expressed concern over the precedent it could set for PB.  Also, torrents and P2P are your friends, when the day comes.
The project is followed by many more over there than here, so one more post to calm everyone down shouldn't hurt. Operative word "shouldn't." If nothing else, it'll help to get me off my ass and release another bugfix. :happy:

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that corporations and their lawyers are assholes :P

thnx a lot man but this shit seems rlly complicated lol
It's a lot better than doing it all by hand, cause then you'll have to manually change everything. And just imagine what'll happen if you make a mistake, you'll have to redo a ton.

so I gotta open a file in notepad and put


after I have 2 put FF3USME correct?
Me mentioning FF3usME was for your benefit. The semicolon is just to signify that "everything else on this line is a comment." that xkas will ignore when assembling.

the 2nd part I noticed isnt too bad I just have to look @ each location with the table file from Lord J right?
