and frankly, the Slick website not telling you the version # or date of a patch unless you download the patch is a bad idea. :/
Voila! Took some doing, but I finally got it to work far too long after the fact. FF1, FF2, and FF5 will come soon, now that I got it working period. :tongue:

11 years of futility have come to a head, and the Lions have grasped what they haven't seen since 1999 - a playoff berth. Mad props to them, and I sincerely hope they at least make it to face the Pack attack in the NFC Championship game.

So my questions to you are these - does FFIII on the SNES have automatic linebreaks for dialogue? It would save a helluva lotta space if it does.
For menu descriptions, yes, but it's not detected properly, so there will be garbage. More accurately, there is no code to detect when to go to the next line, and it's VRAM that is moving it down on its own, which is why there is garbage.
For battles, same as the above.
For plain old dialogue, yes, and it works fine.

I've resolved myself to not make this conform to the rest of the series, but look a bit more like Ted Woolsey was translating from the start rather than replacing the people responsble for the translation of "FFII" halfway to release time.
Woolsey had nothing to do with FF4.

Romo threw a good ball, Austin sucks at catching it.

Game Modification Station / Re: Map event triggers
« on: December 10, 2011, 10:57:26 AM »
1) how does the game recognize which event trigger goes on which map since that data is only 5 bytes long ( X position, y position and 3 bytes for the event offset)? I ask that because if I add a new trigger manually, I suppose I can't just put it at the end of all the others. It must be regrouped with the others triggers who are on the same map... So how does the game recognize or calculate the number of triggers on the same map?
It knows by looking at the differences in the pointers.
Code: [Select]
C0/BCAE: BF0200C4 LDA $C40002,X  (load next event trigger pointer)
C0/BCB2: 851E    STA $1E
C0/BCB4: BF0000C4 LDA $C40000,X  (load current map's event trigger pointer)
C0/BCB8: C51E    CMP $1E        (do they match?)
C0/BCBA: F013    BEQ $BCCF      (if so, no event triggers for this map)
C0/BCBC: AA      TAX            (no match, so there is at least 1 trigger for this map)
C0/BCBD: BF0000C4 LDA $C40000,X  (load trigger)
C0/BCC1: C5AF    CMP $AF        (compare to current X and Y position)
C0/BCC3: F00E    BEQ $BCD3      (branch if it matches your current position)
C0/BCC5: 8A      TXA            (no match, move on to the next trigger)
C0/BCC6: 18      CLC
C0/BCC7: 690500  ADC #$0005     (add this to move to the next pointer)
C0/BCCA: AA      TAX
C0/BCCB: E41E    CPX $1E        (does the current pointer match the next map's pointer?)
C0/BCCD: D0EE    BNE $BCBD      (branch if not, there's more triggers!)
C0/BCCF: 7B      TDC
C0/BCD0: E220    SEP #$20      (8 bit accum./memory)
C0/BCD2: 60      RTS
So you can't simply just plop a pointer anywhere you wish, you need to manually adjust the pointer for the map you want, and every map afterwards. Not something to be done by hand.

This won't help at all, but I've never actually used TF before. I know he still lurks at the Compendium, but he also lurks at RHDN. Try shooting him a PM there.

I should start putting the version numbers in with the filenames. Unfortunately, the way the page system was designed, it won't be easy short of renaming everything to suit this new method. It should start clearing some stuff up, though. :isuck:

update: Sorry to bother, but where exactly did you find that version Lenophis?
This is why I hate all-in-one patches, because people never know who made what!

So...any ideas??
Quote from: The Damn Readme
Version history:

v1.0b - April 25, 2010. Fixed problem with null entries in the menu. Every null
        entry would have a 1 MP cost. To do this, the code determining the MP
        cost and the following code for availability had to be optimized.
So yeah, update your patch.
