Dang, this is a great base patch! I so wish I would have had it for FFT: Emergence. If I ever rebuild the ISO, I'm totally using this!

There are some issues with the credits.

Some of those hacks are by Xifanie.

Archaemic is misspelled. Credit it to "endrift (Archaemic)" or "endrift/Archaemic". (I checked this with her.)

It'd be better to credit each hack individually to their author.

Sorry to necropost, but I wasn't sure where else I should put this!

These are two bugs I've encountered while using Valhalla, though they might be bugs with the ASM scripts themselves, I'm not sure:

1 - There's a bug with text editing: Most of the tutorial text gets destroyed (or the pointers are wrong). While playing the tutorials, every text box simply appears blank or it repeats the names of the AI characters in the tutorial battle. This happens even if you blacklist the tutorial text changes and tutorial names ASM hacks. Seems to affect the "Magick" tutorial and each one listed after that.

2 - There's a bug with the "Party Roster Extension" ASM hack: After battle, there's a good chance you'll see a phantom "Curaja" (sometimes Curaga) at the bottom of every job's ability list for every slot. This happens about 75% of the time. Closing out the game and restarting it fixes this.


In addition, I have some questions about what certain ASM hacks do:

Battle jobs list: Valhalla says "Fix what status jobs list show in battle" - is this saying that status effects innate to certain jobs weren't showing in job descriptions during battles, and this hack fixes it? Or is it saying something like, "now correctly shows status effects active on units during battle?"

Switch formation and absorb: Would it be simple enough to hack this code to remove the "absorb" part? I took a quick look at it hoping to find an obvious place to noop it out, but I didn't see one.

Test entd 9b items: Valhalla says "Testing purposes only" but I really don't know what it does when it's turned on. I would assume it does something weird like adding all the 9b items to your inventory or something, but I'm not seeing them there, so I'm not sure how this hack helps me "test" them.
