It's a public wiki. Don't hesitate to write on it.Invest time to have my changes immediately reversed because of lack of sources? No thanks.
I definitely knew it as DTE originally, when used non-recursively.I don't know, but at least the US version of FF1 used this (1990). I'm pretty sure it wasn't the first, however.
I'm surprised Wikipedia claims byte-pair/digram encoding wasn't publicly described until 1994, given how simple it is. In fact, I've personally found one obscure example that is dated 1993 (and I decompressed all of it by hand, which was rather interesting to slowly watch, given the text). I'm curious as to what the real earliest example of it in the wild is.
Yes, it can be defined using recursion. But the same result can also be gotten by using longer marks and even longer strings.Yes, "recursive DTE" is the same as dictionary compression with the following differences:
I haven't looked at CompressTools' source yet -- I find that having the algorithm explained is easier than trying to decipher it from source.All CompressTool's source codes are extensively and boldly commented, and at the top of each algorithm there is a long explaination on how the algorithm work, so it's not like you'd have to reverse-engineer anything here.
Just in case you missed it earlier, I've been keeping backups of my saves, so let me know if there's a spot in the game you need to fix so I can be ready for it and send you a save.Maybe if you have one I'd be interested at a save at anytime where you can easily access the Returner's hideout (if possible after the 1st time, so that I don't have to deal with the story).
How does a KKK member and a giant erect penis have anything to do with Nazism?I of course didn't mean hacks about all 3 simultaneously, I meant hack about either of those 3 elements.
Vanilla FF6A is pretty much exactly what she should sound like in my opinion)As far I know, all the original SNES FF6, the original FF6a and my hack are on the same pitch. If one of them is to low to fit Celes, then all 3 are. I don't understand your logic, it doesn't make a difference whether the voice comes from a real recording or a synth.
If you're implying that Celes's original SNES voice is too low, I disagree.You were the one implying that. I just set the tune so it would be the same as on the SNES, and you said it was too low. I only lowered the pitch by 2 or 3 semitones I don't remember exacly, but it's not like if I made it half an octave lower than the original.
I do not agree with you Zunar, it just sounds like a Contralto to me.It sounds like a normal alto to me.
But yes, to get back on topic... Are you using the same opera stuff from the old version, Breg? That was one thing that really bugged me, in the old restoration Celes's voice is so deep she doesn't even sound like a woman. It pretty much ruins the entire scene. >_>Right now I'm not using anything but yes I was planning to use pretty much the same as the 1.1 version. Celes' voice was originally a different pitch, but I changed the pitch so it would end up in the same key as the SNES version. Since I needed to modify the tempo anyway for synchronization purposes, I would change the pitch as well.
One other question, are you planning to make the patch compatible with the U and J versions just like you did with FF5?Yes, I am planning to, whenever possible, however the E version has the priority. If it is easily portable to the U and/or J version I'll do this, but if I encounter any major problem I'll pass.
With DTE you have to look at frequency of pairs recursively.Look at CompressTools' source code. It's a 256x256 entry array, which counts the frequencies. Whenever a byte pair is substitued with a single byte, the table is updated. When recursion is disabled, any pair containing a DTE already doesn't count and keep a frequency of 0, however when recursion is possible, the update is full. It's really that simple
"Recursive DTE" is complicated for variable length tokens. That is roughly the same as huffman, with huffman being able to have non fixed size characters.No, you're completely 100% wrong. It is probably the 3rd simplest compression sheme after RLE and non-recusrive DTE, and it has absolutely nothing to do with huffman.
I forget who it was exactly, and I didn't verify his numbers, but he was someone I trusted on that site and I don't think he would have lied.Wow I didn't know I was that much reliable ! I did this text compressing two english books, but that doesn't mean it will work best on all english text. Nevertheless it's a good indication. The simplicity of the algorithm makes it even more considering.
What is your favourite restaurant meal?There is quite a few I could name here. I'd whether possible get anything nobody in my family can cook (or at least not well enough), so that eating out is worth it.
What is your favourite fast food place?I am from Europe, and fast food here is pretty much considered like an American intrusion in our lives and many people hate it, even though many don't care. I'm among the 1st bunch.
