It's official. Tuesday night at 8 PM eastern time. What am I going to do for my late-night fix tonight?! :eek:

All I seem to do is raise considerable amounts of hell/drama. :isuck: Although after that whole discussion, I read one of his DSP checksum threads (it appears to have since been deleted or edited out), and he explicitly stated that he didn't want to be responsible for bad dumps to be out there, and this was after several posts of him saying he will not leak it to anybody, anywhere, anytime.

So yeah, lots of fun stuff. :childish:

Game Modification Station / Re: To all users of my Summon This! patch
« on: December 22, 2010, 09:56:54 AM »
The "summon this!" patch does not work with the FF6 improvement patch and I wanted to see if I could fix it by myself. The problem with the improvement patch is that code gets shifted around.
I'm amazed you did manage to do that yourself.

I did release a version of your patch and you were given proper credit at the ff6hacking website.
That's not the issue.

If you want, I can take it down and send you the patch.
This is a gray area. My update isn't done yet, and until it is, there's no way for this patch to be compatible with assassin's fix yet. Hang on to it until my update is ready. That won't be for a bit yet, because I'm working on a super sekrit thing right now and it requires my full attention.

on the bright side, the patch's commenting is very thorough, and it's likely the conflicting area is just shifted code rather than materially rewritten.
I'll likely have to make a new assembly file for that one, cause there's so much shifting going on and there's a minimal amount of changes. Easy enough. :happy:

1: The patch does work.
2: After some investigation, tests reveal it conflicts with assassin's Brushless Sketch fix. If you used his patch before or after my patch, Very Bad Things will happen.
3: angelo, the next time you tweak one of my patches again without coming to me first will be a cold day in hell for you.

I need to look into other patches that might be tweaking the code my patch is tweaking, and pump an update out.

Oy. Why does Square have to port this game to every system imaginable? I know I just angered the entire JCE army, but come on, at some point you have to realize there's other games for the series.

^ how the hell is this post timestamped 4 hours earlier than Lenophis' above it?!?
I'm going to guess it has to do with that server upgrade last night. Quoth hypher:
btw, slick is going to have about 20 minutes of downtime tonight while the server upgrades
This was at about 9 pm last night central time. When I went to slick to try and warn everyone of the downtime, it was already down. Nothing like the 30-second warning. :tongue:

anyway, i watched the whole Packers/Patriots game, and it was indeed great.
I'll be honest, I thought the Pack had no chance with Rodgers out.

as a Bears fan, i shouldn't be rooting for Green Bay, but Flynn was very impressive, and it was a frustrating loss.
As a Vikings fan, I so wanted the Pack to lose, but not if Rodgers wasn't behind center. You could tell Flynn was a rookie at the end, but damn did he show some composure during that game.

Short of writing them all down, or looking at the treasure document Imzog has hosted, there is no way to tell. There are some free treasure bits, you just have to find them. :wink:

There's code in C1, and I think that's all of it.

So how do you determine a character's ID for a given map?
Character ID never changes. Terra is always 0, Locke is always 1, etc etc. NPCs cannot be party members. Adding party members is completely separate from NPCs in a given map.

It's $3F.
Code: [Select]
Assign character XX in party YY
(if yy == 0, remove character from party)
(gen. act. 3F)

I do take home field advantage seriously...
Three games have been in New York, 2 in cold weather. One game played in the dome.

i miss Orton..  the passing offense is one of the Broncos' few bright spots this year.
Is it the system, or was it Chicago? It seems incomprehensible that Orton suddenly becomes Marino just by switching teams.
