Personal Projects / Final Fantasy IX - General hacking tool
« on: August 05, 2014, 06:23:40 am »
Hi there ! I'm not particulary active on RH but I've uploaded some stuff here so I guess I should at least present them ^^'

I'm working on Hades Workshop, a Final Fantasy IX modding tool. It is quiet a big project and I don't know if I will ever decide when it's finished  ::)
However, it is already usable and can edit things like :
  • Spells the party can cast,
  • Supporting abilities the party can use,
  • Commands the party has,
  • Default stats and equipments of the party members,
  • Items' features,
  • Items sold in shops,
  • Statistics & attacks of enemies,
  • Text, dialogs and charmap,
  • Game's script,
  • Battle Scenes' models exporting & importing.

It has been used by Thisguyaresick2 to make his Save The Queen patch, for instance.

Since that's basically a direct binary editor, there are some limitations mainly about the size of datas ; a lot of texts can't be lengthened a lot for example. But I also took that in my advantage and made it so it can edit all versions of the game and even pass the datas from one version to another.

I'm also involved in finding the unused dialogs of the game. I just uploaded a patch to enable some of them that have already been scripted. You can find it here :
US version
French version

Most of time, these unused dialogs were translated, but that's not the case of all of them. One of the dialogs in the patch is in this case : the translation from japanese to english has been gently made by luksy from the Qhimm's forum. I wrote the french translation with the help of his.

There are other unused dialogs in the game. I've just not been able to unlock them yet (or they have never been scripted and only texts remain). Here is a list of some of the most interesting ones of them :

Alexandria [Over the roofs...] :
Puck “So, Vivi... Is this your first time in Alexandria?”
Vivi “Uh...  Um...  Yeah. I bought my ticket from a moogle wearing a hat...”
Puck “Bad luck!  If I ever find that moogle, I'll hurt him plenty!”
Vivi “Uh... Thanks...”
Puck “Alright!  Just a little farther 'til we can see the stage!”

Ruined Prima Vista [Steiner's bitterness] :
Steiner “Those bastards... If they plan to demand a ransom, they're wasting their time.  I'll see to it that they receive nothing!”
Steiner “Wretched thieves... I'll see them all hanged!”
Steiner “Those bastards... They will never get away with this!”

Observatory Mountain [Good and Evil with Grampa Morrid] :
Steiner “Alexandria, of course! Burmecia started the war, and we lost our king as a result.”
Morrid “Many wars were fought before the Lindblum Airship Revolution.”
Morrid “Alexandria intiated some of the wars against Burmecia. Now, can you tell me who was right or wrong?”
Steiner “I-I am not talking about the past! I am talking about the future!”
Morrid “What will you do if Alexandria starts a war?”
Steiner “When will the cargo ship arrive!?”

Gizamaluke's Grotto [Entering Burmecia] :
Burmecian Soldier “This is the Gizamaluke's Grotto. It is Burmecia's border.”
Burmecian Soldier “No one is allowed inside without the king's permission.”

Cleyra [Meeting with the King and the High Priest] translated from japanese by luksy :
Freya “It has been some time, Your Majesty.”
King of Burmecia “Ah, Freya, well met.”
King of Burmecia “The High Priest and I welcome you.”
High Priest of Cleyra “My Lady.”
High Priest of Cleyra “It would appear that this predicament no longer concerns Burmecia alone.”
Freya “I understand, Your Holiness.”
Freya “And yet...”
Freya “I fear my strength alone may not suffice.”
King “Freya...I know what troubles you.”
King “I must apologize for earlier.”
King “Can you ever forgive me?”
King “No! Of course you cannot.”
King “But the fate of the people of Burmecia now hangs by but a thread.”

Occupied Lindblum Castle [Reaching Cid] :
Don't get caught by the enemy!
Jump out when she looks away!
Man “The regent is waiting for you at the Base Level.”
Man “The enemy is busy loading supplies. Go down on the lift, now!”
Man “Once you get on the lift, my comrades will take care of the rest.”
Zidane “So, I just take the lift to the Base Level without getting caught?”
Zidane “Piece o' cake! Leave everything to me.”
Is anybody there...?
A tail?
Oh, it's only a cat...
Zidane (Wow, that was a close one.)
Man “(You idiot!)”
Man “Whatever you do, don't get caught!”
Man “What's wrong? The regent is waiting at the Base Level.”
Man “Go now, or you'll get caught!”
Zidane “I gotta run while she's looking away.”

Occupied Lindblum Castle [The Ancient World Map] :
Regent Cid “That is a national treasure of Lindblum!”
Regent Cid “It was passed down through my ancestors, since the days of the first regent.”
Regent Cid “It was probably made before our continent was covered in the Mist...”
Regent Cid “That is an ancient map of the entire world!”

Alexandria [Balloon Mini-game] translated from french by me :
Girl “You want to play with us?”
Girl “You've got some time to gather balloons and give them to the boys behind us!”
Girl “You get more time depending of the color of the balloon that you bring.”
Green → 5 more seconds
Yellow → 10 more seconds
Blue → 15 more seconds
Red → 30 more seconds
Girl “All the three of us have a balloon and we are somewhere on the square.”
Girl “Well... Start!”
Boy “X more seconds! You have Y points!”

Final [The 2 worlds' fusion] :
The Iifa Tree could not be stopped...
Gaia and Terra's fusion
caused global chaos,
destroying many cities and
taking many lives...

Thanks for reading. If you find any bug or have a suggestion, please let me know it  :)
If you are courageous, you can also browse the Qhimm's topic : that's where I wrote most of things about Hades Workshop and FFIX hacking (I would like to fill your wiki, but I need to find the courage for that ^^).
