Multi-Font Selection Patch

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

This patch implement a selectable GBA Font in Config menu. The only free space it use is less than $D0 bytes at end of bank $C3 for actual menu work. Otherwise, functions have been optimized or at least shortened in order to fit in the new code, especially in bank $C0.

There are 2 hacks or implementations. The Original hack and the one made for expanded ROMs (EXP).

In the Original hack, both fonts fits where the original font was, using the free space before and after in bank $C4. The free space used before the FWF to draw black menu backgrounds has been simulated by loading blank tiles in VRAM. This mean this version of the patch does not work with icon expansion or other hack adding characters in the FWF before index 0×80. Since original font is moved, this patch break FF3usME dialogue viewing but not dialogue editing. You can always open a second editor instance to find caption, see changes, etc.

In the Expanded Hack (EXP files), Normal font is kept where it is in original ROM while Advance (GBA) Font is moved to $F20800. Note that the $F20000-$F207FF range is reserved and filled with 00 to copy in the same way in bank $C4 the empty space before the Normal FWF. With this version of the hack, you can see dialogues edits made in FF3usME.

A new dialogue control code have been added to ease the work with multiple fonts. Writing $17 at the beginning of a line now center automatically the line given it ends by new line ($01), end parameter ($11, $12) or end page ($13). This is still experimental and instances of the control code have not been added to dialogue. You must do it yourself. In FF3usME, use OP$17. See the readme for an example.
