And now, I am the first to make an official pick for the big game, despite 3 people having voted already.

Steelers over the Packers, 38-35

Game Modification Station / Re: FF6 menu help
« on: February 06, 2011, 08:09:08 AM »
I'm looking for a couple pieces of code in C3 - the first is the process that places the location of the spell in the item description screen.
Actually, I'm pretty sure the game is bugged in the regard that weapons don't teach any magic. Or it could be intentional, I dunno.
Code: [Select]
Display spell to learn, used by Esper menu and item properties menu
C3/5AE1: 203D5B  JSR $5B3D
C3/5AE4: C220    REP #$20       (16 bit memory/accum.)
C3/5AE6: 8A      TXA

C3/5AF6: 206784  JSR $8467      (draw the spell name)
C3/5AF9: A2929E  LDX #$9E92     (space between spell name and ':' character)

C3/5B29: A28B9E  LDX #$9E8B
C3/5B2C: 8E8121  STX $2181
C3/5B2F: A9FF    LDA #$FF
C3/5B31: 8D8021  STA $2180       (insert a space)
C3/5B34: 88      DEY
C3/5B35: D0FA    BNE $5B31       (do 14 times?)
C3/5B37: 9C8021  STZ $2180      (end this string)

The second thing I'm looking for is the code that places the time in the menu screen
Code: [Select]
C3/326C: AD8811  LDA $1188
C3/326F: 8910    BIT #$10
C3/3271: F016    BEQ $3289
C3/3273: AC8911  LDY $1189      (is $1189 the elapsed time in seconds?)
C3/3276: 20B232  JSR $32B2      (if so, this gives minutes)
C3/3279: 20B232  JSR $32B2      (and this would give hours)
C3/327C: A5E7    LDA $E7        (load A with hours)
C3/327E: 8D6318  STA $1863      (put hours in $1863)
C3/3281: AD1642  LDA $4216      (remainder is excess minutes)
C3/3284: 8D6418  STA $1864      (put that in $1864)
C3/3287: 800C    BRA $3295
C3/3289: AC1B02  LDY $021B      (Hours and minutes)
C3/328C: 8C6318  STY $1863      (store in SRAM)
C3/328F: AD1D02  LDA $021D      (Seconds amd frames)
C3/3292: 8D6518  STA $1865      (store in SRAM)
C3/3295: A920    LDA #$20
C3/3297: 8529    STA $29        (set text color to white)
C3/3299: AD6318  LDA $1863      (hours)
C3/329C: 20E004  JSR $04E0      (convert leading 0's to spaces)
C3/329F: A2FB7C  LDX #$7CFB     (The position, I believe)
C3/32A2: 20B604  JSR $04B6      (2 digits to display)
C3/32A5: AD6418  LDA $1864      (minutes)
C3/32A8: 20F904  JSR $04F9      (convert minutes to a displayable format)
C3/32AB: A2017D  LDX #$7D01
C3/32AE: 20B604  JSR $04B6      (JMP fool!, 2 digits to display)
C3/32B1: 60      RTS

and perhaps the code that deals with borders too
Find all calls to C3/0341, and you will control all windows created in the main menu.

I'm trying to expand the hours portion to 3 digits, and if I have room, I'll add seconds as well. I'm really bad with menus and stuff >.<
You're going to have one problem:
Code: [Select]
$1863-$1865 : Game Time (3 bytes)Seconds, minutes, hours. Since there's only one byte for hours, it will cap at 255.

In "way out of left field!" news, Jeff Fisher and the Titans have agreed to part ways. The Titans just entered super rebuilding mode. :tongue:

Game Modification Station / Re: Question about character names
« on: January 24, 2011, 08:24:44 PM »
Bank C4 has nothing on character names, and the location you listed has this:
Code: [Select]
C47AC0-C47F3F       SHOP          Shop Specifications (128 items, 9 bytes each [1 title byte, 8 items])
There's about 6 or 7 routines you need to tweak scattered in C0, C1, C2, and C3 if you want to expand character names.

*fully prepared to go 0-2 this week*
The feeling is mutual.

My picks: Bears and Steelers.

The only analysis I can offer is that for their week 15 matchup, the Steelers were without Polamalu. The Steelers are demonstratively better with Troy in the secondary, and are below .500 without him. The Packers/Bears is a coinflip. Overall, the Packers probably edge out the Bears in all categories this year, but to root for the cheeseheads....... :banonsmash:

Pandora's Box / Re: Make an FC command!
« on: January 22, 2011, 02:07:43 PM »
Else would be very hard to do. Almost as hard as Or, and we still only have that as a "we want that in." It'd probably require a massive rewrite to the FC command, and I'm not sure I'm up to doing that. :sad:

General Discussion / Re: NFL season (2010-2011) week 19 (playoffs?!)
« on: January 17, 2011, 06:46:25 AM »
there were at least a few plays where Brady had all sorts of time to throw, but couldn't find anybody open down field, and after seeing Cutler's performance earlier in the day, i'm thinking "Why doesn't he just run the ball?!".
He doesn't run, for whatever reason. Never did even before the Chiefs were blocked into blowing out his knee a couple years ago. He's Brad Johnson. :whoa:

Brady only had two rushes, compared to how many long, frustrated looks down the field?  10, 15?  it's hard to believe that with the Patriots receivers so well-covered, the Jets would also have the personnel to simultaneously stop a quarterback from rushing for some yards.
Rex changed up his defense to shut Brady down, and Brady didn't adjust to try and shut Rex down. Despite the stats saying the Patriots mostly dominated, the Patriots looked a bit confused out there.

(6) Packers @ (2) Bears: Sunday 4 est
(6) Jets @ (2) Steelers: Sunday 8 est (I think)

The NFC Championship should be epic. :happy:

Leno, did you pick against the Packers just to hate on them (being in the same division as the Vikings)?
Not entirely. I thought the Falcons were ready to take that next step, and they way they played this year I thought they would've at least made the NFC championship.

Home teams with a bye are 10-10 over the last 5 years during this round. No such thing as a favorite this week.

(5) Ravens @ (2) Steelers: Saturday 4:30 est
This has been the best rivalry in the game over the past few years. I have big reservations about it being the first game of the weekend. :banonsmash: Over the last 19 games, Steelers have 9, Ravens have 8. They scored the same amount of points, have about the same yards per game, and it's the perfect storm of a matchup. They mimic each other perfectly. Joe Cool has won 4 road playoff games already (tied for most all-time), and Big Ben has 2 rings. The season series went to the road teams. Take your pick...

(6) Packers @ (1) Falcons: Saturday 8 est
Matty Ice's home record now stands at 20-2. The Packers are playing far better than anybody thought they would with all the injuries they have. To me, this appears to be the biggest mismatch of the weekend. I say that only because the Pack are the only team to not win the first matchup.

(4) Seahawks @ (2) Bears: Sunday 1 est
The Seahawks are once again big underdogs. Last time they were big underdogs, they won in an offensive show. Now their defense has to step up. They already did beat the Bears in Chi-town earlier this year (sorry assassin), so they have something to look back on for the rematch. Given how different each team is playing now, that last victory may mean nothing, but that's why they play the game. The Seahawks definitely have a chance.

(6) Jets @ (1) Patriots: Sunday 4:30 est
The home team won each game, which includes that 45-3 destruction by the Patriots. Sanchez is playing well right now, and the Patriots are laying a path of "get anybody get the plate number of that truck?" On paper, the Patriots win big, but this isn't paper. This should be a lot closer than anybody wants it to be. :tongue:

My picks: Ravens, Falcons, Bears, Patriots. I have no confidence in any of my picks, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if I took a bagel this week.

Yay, my post wasn't erased this time! :happy:

Well, the Packers could get to the NFC title game, and that would give the Seahawks one more home game.


Congrats, guys, all four of us went 0-2 today.

The Seahawks did what Vegas said they had no chance of doing, covered the spread, and more importantly, beat the defending champs. Final score, 41-36. :omg:

The season is in the books, and the wild card matchups are set:
(6) Packers @ (3) Eagles (Sunday 4:30 est)
The Pack haven't trailed by more than 7 points at any point this season, and their losses were by an average of 3.3 points. This will be a close game, unless the Eagles completely forgot how to guard. Perhaps Aaron Rodgers will win a playoff game, perhaps not. He's 0-1, Vick is 2-0 in this round. A pointless stat, to be sure, but a stat is a stat, and they're fun to recite. :happy:

(5) Saints @ (4) Seahawks (Saturday 4:30 est)
This has mismatch written all over it. The Seahawks are 11 point home underdogs. Everyone is picking the Saints to win big. Obviously, that means the game will be close, and the Seahawks could even pull that upset. It's unlikely, and I don't see it happening, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did.

(6) Jets @ (3) Colts (Saturday 8 est)
Peyton Manning is 5-1 against Rex, and the 1 loss was last year when he decided to sleep through the last 6 quarters of the season. This won't be close.

(5) Ravens @ (4) Chiefs (Sunday 1 est)
This is probably the hardest pick, because the Chiefs historically do not lose at home this time of year. On the other hand, the Ravens know how to win when it's go-time, but I still see this as a coin-flip.

I'm making all four picks now, cause I can: Eagles, Saints, Colts, Ravens.
