ROM Hacks: Stand Guard has been updated
« on: February 20, 2013, 09:40:43 am »

Update By: Spooniest

Stand Guard is now version 4.0. Text has been overhauled from version 3.1 and many lines were edited. Look specifically in this version for the full libretto to Aria Di Mezzo Caraterre.

Additionally, the Sprint Shoes were changed to the Wingboots, which give stat boosts, and Tina starts with a Ward Bangle equipped, so there is an option for reduced encounters.

There's an LP going on here.

It would be great if the news could include some basic information about what Stand Guard is and what has been changed in comparison to the original game.

I interpreted this as a bugfix, translation-accuracy and enhancement patch which is not altering the games difficulty and story.
Am I right?  :huh:

I thought it was some type of script editor.

I was already playing the previous version. I'm a little bit past the phantom train part. Is it worth starting over with the new update?

Also I was playing it from the fantasyanime site since it's already pre patched. Is that one going to be updated too?

Yes. Although it is marginally harder...

I sent it over to the webmaster, but as of this writing, the pre-patched rom isn't up, but the patch iself is.

You shouldn't have to start over, unless you want a free pair of Wingboots and a free Ward Bangle. Just rename your .srm file to match the new rom.

I am disappointed it does not include my tiny hand cursor in dialogue choices hack :(

Also, the inconsistency between the tiny, sharp dialogue font and the bold menu font is a little disturbing.

Ok so I patched it, and the font is a little distorted. It's still legible, but distracting, for example, the points on the top of W are wider, it looks like there's an underscore after the word gil. etc. I tested on both zsnes and snes9x and they both have the problem.

It didn't have this problem on the pre patched version from fantasyanime.com

Also is Terra supposed to start with the wingboots? That seems odd to me since she didn't start with sprintshoes

I think you might have patched it to version 1.1. Use version 1.0 instead.

EDIT: I replicated the behavior you mentioned. It turns out I made the patch with LunarIPS, which was a mistake. I've submitted the snestool-made version, and here's a link to it right now.

Tried that and it's the same. I know it's the 1.0 version because that's exactly what the download said.

If I can't fix it, I'll probably just wait until the new version is pre patched on fantasyanime. Assuming it will be. Until then I still have ver 3.1 which I assume is still worth playing.

This time I am unable to replicate the behavior you mention with either snestool or Lunar IPS. Did you patch it over a clean 1.0?

This fixed it. Thanks! I wasn't too far in so I don't mind starting over. Fewer random encounters will make up for it. Take the effort to get this working perfectly as me saying "hey, I really like your patch"  :)

One question

"Look specifically in this version for the full libretto to Aria Di Mezzo Caraterre"

What do you mean by this? What's the difference from the previous version?

I just fudged some lyrics that fit the meter in version 3.1. This version has the lyrics that are in the GBA version. The reason was that I had problems with opcodes while editing the lyrics (they're timed to match the music) the first time, but with version 4.0, I figured it out.

Gonna have to play this.

BTW, in your LP thread over there you mentioned not remembering Cid6's full name, it's something like Cid del Norte Marguez (or maybe that's Marquez) as I recall.

Is that what it was?

...Funny, I can't think of a single instance in which he actually gives his name to anyone.

No, I know it's part of the supplemental material, but in any of the actual game scripts, I mean.

It never comes up in Woolsey's script, I know that much.  Slattery's I'm not as familiar with but I can't remember it there either.
