Pray for a sprain, as then your arm will be laid up for 2 weeks, which isn't nearly as bad. :tongue: Also, ouch.

I made a discovery, not sure if anyone is aware of it or not. When I was messing with FF3USME, I noticed in the item editor that you can increase spell damage by 50%. This not only applies to a spell cast from an item, but also from spells cast by the user of the equipped item.  I don't have the editor in front of me as I am not at home. I do believe it's a "?" marked check box in "Special 2". It's the only unknown box in the category, so it's easy to find.
That makes sense, and it's probably the second bit the earrings use. The second bit is what makes the effect stack with itself, which makes magic insane. Never would've thought to use that on items, personally. This is a pretty neat find. :happy:

I also have some questions for you guys.

I have decided to change W Wind to a level 2 Wind element spell. Is there a way to change the putrid looking animation to either Cyclonic or Aero?
Ok, you'll need this. Drakkhen's page appeared to be down at the time, so I'll link it directly for now. Open it up, and click on the 14-byte button. Scroll down to W Wind. To use Aero's animation, make the following changes:
Animation 1: A7 01 E1
Animation 2: 8D 01 AB
Animation 3: 91 01 32
Special animation: FF FF
Sound: 7B
???: 10
Repeat speed: 18

To change to Cyclonic:
Animation 1: 97 01 E1
Animation 2: 98 01 AF
Animation 3: FF FF 00
Special animation: FF FF
Sound: 73
???: 1B
Repeat speed: 18

Also, I would like to know if there is a way to switch out one of the current learnable spells with a different one. One that will show up on the magic menu and able to be learned with a percentage, showing up on the Esper learned spells, etc? I've used to recent release that Lord J posted, it allows some animation change but I haven't figured out a way to change the animation to what I want. You do have a few choices, like the interesting random animation change from Fire to Drain, that was neat, etc.
Using Drakkhen's editor (linked above), you could rename the spells and swap animations around, which is probably the best you can do at the moment.

Those look like really round numbers, now I'm wondering what the formula is. :hmm:

It's okay though, I'm pretty good with the keyboard these days
It shows, you pulled off some funky moves. A 2 hour run of SM is still pretty good, though I'm sure the hardcores will argue that it's not nearly good enough. Oh well, right? I was entertained, through and through. :happy:

Awesome, this should be a great watch. *watches*

part 1:  I'm a little surprised, you broked to get the first super missile pack, then go after Spore anyway?
part 2: "Here I go, bomb jumping my way up. Doo dee doo dee doo.......damn Geemer. Doo dee doo dee doo. G'ah, fuggit. *freezes Geemer and uses it as a stepping stone* I found that to be rather hilarious." I was more surprised at your ability to get the Ice Beam early, then getting out the long way. Overall, there are a couple of things you could've done to go faster, but overall I'm pretty impressed. :happy:
part 3: Ok, Maridia could've gone better. In that big room when you spark straight up, you could've optionally sparked diagonally up/right to get to that door quicker. Granted, that would've been faster on your first spark only, since your other two were pretty quick. Other than that, this was a good segment.
part 4: Went about as I expected it to.
part 5: This also went as I expected it to.

You're playing with the keyboard, right? You seem to be searching for your aiming buttons at times.

I don't have the time to get a 3 minute youtube movie, so please save me the trouble and inform us of what it is? :happy:

Yeah yeah yeah, I know I'm just an amateur and it's probably not very impressive, but you could at LEAST stop by here to say "YOU SUCK". :tongue:
That would be flaming. :tongue:

Anyway, I don't need this topic anymore, so it can be moved to trash.
I'll give it a little more time, just in case. You never know when something may pop up. :omg:

General Discussion / Re: The curse that is dialup...
« on: February 14, 2008, 06:05:43 PM »
what are you each paying for dialup?  over here, i get Comcast Highspeed Internet for $42.95/month, and it's stayed at that price for a long time.  also, i believe AT&T was offering some entry-level DSL package (768Kb/s?) for $14.99 or $19.99 per month.  there's no reason to pay $15-$20 for dial-up these days, unless you live in the sticks or something.
The cheapest DSL around here is $21.99 a month, which is more than I can afford. Unfortunately, even if DSL is available here (I live "in the sticks or something") it'd probably be slower than the dialup. It's not helping that the phone lines in this house are older than I am. (There's exposed wire in the basement, though I think the lines outside are fairly new.) The prospect of having it available any time during the day is really looking nice though. However, I need money for that. :sad: This goes back to that evil cycle of needing money to get car, needing car to get job, needing job to get money sort of thing. Fortunately, I have some kind friends that assist with the dialup. I probably wouldn't have this problem if I were living in the city (I'm about 5-6 miles outside of it). Everything would be within walking distance, and then I would have the money for the things I want. :happy:

No. :tongue: Here's a hint: Go to the Serpent Trench, and find this spot. There's a really obscure bug in the original at that spot, and unless you accidently find it, you probably never will.

Yes, I'm sure all of  us here have experienced the pain and the suffering. It gets really bad when you have to download, which may happen more than a person realizes. Take my video drivers, for instance. Every time there's an update, the drivers are a 40+ meg download. That's an entire nights worth of internet time for me just to update the drivers. There's other things like the emergency patches that Microsoft releases now and then, and those add up too.

But when you move into things that you don't need, and just want, that's when it hurts. Recently I started a download of a Star Ocean: The Second Story speedrun. That's 500 megs for the low-quality movie, which is acceptable. That translates to about 10 nights of internet time to download it all. However, a couple of other things recently finished getting, which will tack on an additional 3 gigs. 3 gigs to download on dialup. I did some math which would have this finished some time around August or September... The worst part? I'm doing this voluntarily.

I'm pretty sure I'm still legally sane, but lately I've been having my doubts. :whoa:

Moral of the story: Be grateful for your internet speed if it isn't dialup.

Ok, For What Ails Ya was broken, but only slightly. Slightly in the sense that it wasn't broken. Another patch was interfering with it, and as though it was fate, it was one of my own patches. If you plan on using For What Ails Ya, and you have used Anchors Aweigh, for the love of all that is sacred use the newest Anchors Aweigh version!
