Wow, OK, I found the problem. The "battle end" function is supposed to compare the list of Engulfed party members to the list of all party members, but instead it compares the list of Engulfed party members to itself. That's just a bad byte, it'll be easy to fix and I will do so ASAP.

So, we have an easy WoB->WoR warp trick here?  :omghax:

5/31/16 - I have an assembly of the battle portion of C2, relocated to the F0 bank, which has both vanilla and patch code in my dropbox. I'll be updating it with additional patches as I have time. I will *not* be releasing it publicly, but ask me for the link and I'll share.

I guess time travel, using worm holes, is possible, after all :P

Not anymore, I've already fixed it. :wink:

I made this discovery using mblock129's patch conflict utility:

!Dead in the Air (no header) (apply after Gogo and the Cursed Shield).ips
Sticky Shadow (no header).ips
Address: 0x24866 - 0x2486B

Don't mind my naming pattern, as usual. The point is I've found another instance of conflict. Sticky Shadow is the Djibriel patch which you can currently get from Assassin's site. It isn't a bug-fix, but I thought it should be known anyway.

Sticky Shadow is super easy to implement with a hex editor. If you have Dead in the Air applied, all you have to do is this:

Code: [Select]

 :hmm: I want to make this clear. Editing only those two bytes will prevent Shadow's random departure? With Dead in the Air applied AND without?

No, without Dead in the Air applied you'd just download Sticky Shadow and apply it. With Dead in the Air applied you'd use that BRA to skip over all the code that would check to see if Shadow departs. No PRN generated, no frontal attack check, no party size check, no nothing.

The patch that is compatible with Gogo and the Cursed Shield is the same as it was before. Is that intentional? Is it unaffected by the bug covered by the new update?

Oops! I forgot to update the non-headered patches! I'll fix that ASAP.

:edit: OK, done.

:edit: To C. V. Reynolds: I also released an update to Morph Mayhem. I don't know what sources of information you turn to in order to find out about my patch updates, other than this forum, but this note is here so you are definitely aware of it.
