Are Cartographer and Atlas still functional on Windows 10 and above?


This applies to all command-based tools:

To prevent Cartographer (for instance) from immediately close the easiest you can do is create a new file in the same folder as Cartographer and save it as aName.bat

Open the bat-file in a text editor and type

Code: [Select]


Save it and now you can double click on the bat-file to execute Cartographer and remain open.

You need of course learn how to use Atlas and Cartographer and have the appropriate parameters to insert or dump your script but this answers your question.

Programming / Re: A general purpose language similar as this

Personally, I think they are strictly worse.  Although non-prototype code is more often read than written, so understanding is important... it's also very important that it's written and read correctly.

If another person who doesn't know the detailed rules of the language reads it, they might find it awkward but assume it is okay code.

I agree, at first when I saw RX I couldn't understand much what was going in the code that others had written but when I created my own systems and put my own words in it, it was more clear. The aim is more to have fun with it alone. I don't plan having a bigger project with a language such as this.  ;)

Thanks for the links, I'll check them out.

I do comment my code well enough in the projects I've had in all the languages I mentioned.

RX is a simple scripting language indeed even though it has the fundamentals like functions, arrays, arithmetic operations, conditions and variables, although everything is global, no variable scope, no nothing. The question was if anyone was aware of a GPL that as long as there are no keywords or anything that would conflict compilation you can type whatever you want. It was not about how to learn to program with a natural like programming language or a visual programming language if I understood your post.

I guess the reason I liked it was that it was more different than any other languages I've used.

I appreciate your input, thanks.

Programming / A general purpose language similar as this

Somewhat odd question but I'm more curious about this one.

I have been programming on and off in C/C++/C#/Python/Ruby for years and although they are fine there was one scripting language call
RX Scripting Language ( that I used for creating roulette systems a couple of years ago that I think (although different) was quite fun to program in.

As an example, the syntax is as follows:

As you can see it's not very clear what it does but what RX makes you do is adding words that the compiler will completely ignore:

Both are exactly the same but this way it's more clear what the code does. "has been, time, dollar on" is ignored by the compiler here.

The problem with RX is that the language is only for creating roulette systems so my question is if anyone is aware of a
general purpose language that allow you to do this.

I've made a couple of searches but I don't know how to make an accurate search for it so I thought it would be better to ask instead.

I tried searching for an english like language and I saw applescript but I don't know if it works the same way, if all the words are a must, that is.
Maybe someone that has been using it can confirm that.


Read this thread here:

The thread explains various approaches to do what you want even though its about double your exp.

This looks more than neat! That pixel art is astoundingly good! It looks like it's taken right from TAY, but that is very difficult to mimic last I checked on FFIV default. What is shocking is that this was released over four years ago. How did I never hear of it, until now?

I would love to give it a try, but it seems the link is dead, at least for me.

Tried the link and it works here. I uploaded it here for you:

See if it works now.

Try and comment out the STRING END.

Also, are you sure the pointers are 4-byte and not 2?

Just have, patch and rom in the same directory and use the command (for python3):

python3 patch.ips rom.smc and you're good to go.

I was just trying the FFV patch:

When I saw I get 1 ABP point.

Is there any plans to come back to work on this patch? I will be playing the full game soon so I could test it.

Sorry for late response, didn't see it until recently. The patch here is not accurate on EXP, money and ABP was never implemented so you can use mine I did instead:

Edit: Upon request, here is a version which gives EXP,Gold and ABP 4x and 8x as well.

Will only be available for a month (since I don't know which upload service good enough) but double is available on this site, since that was the intention of the whole topic.

P.S. Thanks for letting me know the work was worthwhile, guys!

I'm currently playing this myself.

The patch has been downloaded over 2600 times so that to me shows there are many others that appreciates the amount of work you guys have put into this.

I myself have been waited a long time to play this.

Just a little tip for those who didn't know and just starting using wine.

When I first started, there were 50/50 chance of getting a program to run. Most of the time, when I tried to run it, nothing happened. That was before I ran it through wines command prompt.

Just type in terminal wine cmd and then navigate to the program you want to run and try to run it from there.

Here you will see what causing it not to run. Most of the time it could just be a missing dll-file, but there could also be that you didn't install a package or font file. You can use winetricks for that. It can also be a memory issue which will be harder to solve but you can google the error you get and hopefully others have had the same issue and solved it.

Now I get around 90-95% of the programs I use in Romhacking.

Anyway just a tip.

Congratulations! Look forward to play this.  :beer:

1)  Find the ROM online somewhere
2)  Download the patch
3)  Download LIPS
4)  Use LIPS to apply the patch to the ROM

It doesent get any clearer than this.

First, get the patch here:

Get the tool here:

Download the ROM by searching on the internet and apply the patch using the tool.

Good luck.

If you want to learn this I would recommend using this tutorial instead:

It's the first three sections. It explains much more in detail (and also the tutorial I used to be more confident in binary and hex).

I download the demo but I've only got a chance to play for five minutes before I had to go to work but the intro was cool and I can't wait to try it out some more.

You should really post some screens to show some gameplay to show others, since the game looks interesting.

Keep up the good work!  :thumbsup:

I think it's START also.

It could be another Chrono Trigger game. Atleast I hope it will.

I thought I'd upload the videos myself to Dropbox or something like that but they're so friggin' enormously gigantic. Though I can provide a direct link to the files hosted at hitbox.

That's the latest video Gideon uploaded. Let me know if that works and I'll just copy the rest of the links. :)

Yes it works. :) Thanks alot!

I think you can increase the 15 min limit if you verify your account

I don't know about the music though so it might not be worth the risk. It seem hitbox team is working on an Android app though so i'll wait for that.

I'm also gonna try if I can cast a tab on your video with chromecast when I get home.
