Newcomer's Board / How do I Edit RAM?
« on: January 06, 2016, 03:26:34 pm »
RAM can only be accessed/ modified while the game is running, right? So how would you alter it?

122
Hmm... I see. That's an interesting way of doing it. Got any ideas as to why the names won't change even when the ROM is modified?

123
I know how to change the characters names in RAM but not in ROM.

Wait... what's the difference between ROM and RAM? Also, coincidentally enough I found codes on your site that actually worked! Could you explain how you managed this?
Check it out!!

For other names, you will need to dump the script and re-insert it after you manually change the names (find-and-replace should do it).
What does it mean to dump the script?

Downloaded a clean a version of the same ROM and made changes. Started the game and nothing was different once again. I'm really at a loss for what is going on >~<

The read only option in the properties is not activated.

I figured so. By "hardcoded" you mean the actual names of the other characters are coded into the text as opposed to Bartz's which is subject to change based upon what the player names him?

Okay. So I finally figured out that the version of the ROM I'm using does not include the $200 Copier Header and that was why I was being directed to the incorrect offset. I verified that I was in the correct section by checking the values of the hiragana/ katakana which all matched up perfectly with the names of the characters. Strangely though, the changes I made were not reflected in-game anywhere (dialogue, menu, battles, etc.). I started a new game to see if that would rectify the issue, but still nothing. I am confident I have done everything correctly so I don't know what the problem is.

I used Lunar Address and I also got $11:5700 which was indeed in the table! I just have a few more questions (forgive me, I have been learning so much in the past week!)
1. What is the importance of the $200 Copier Header and when do I include it
2. What is a "table file" and how do I find it
3. What was the original format and why was it in that format anyway (D1/5500)

Also, when I went to the offset $115700 and all I could see were the values 18 18 18 18 etc. which I have no idea how to translate into text and vice versa.

When I loaded the ROM it said "Bank: Hi," so I assume that means it's a HiROM game. Can you explain in a bit more depth how I would find the D15500 offset I am looking for?

So the mapper is similar to that of RAM?

Newcomer's Board / What is a MMC Mapper?

I found a hack for FFIII (Famicom) that changes the FFIII mapper from MMC3 to MMC5 which allows for 1MB of PRG ROM data. Can someone please explain what any of this is and why it's important?

Offset D1/5500 would be the same as D15500, right?

I found a ROM Map that claims the character names are located from D1/5500-D1/551D. This is confusing because the last hex offset in the ROM from what I can tell is 001FFFF0. The version I'm trying to accomplish this on is the original SFC ROM with no patches. Here is a link to the ROM Map I'm using: http://slickproductions.org/slickwiki/index.php/FF5_ROM_map

Relative searching documents? Would you mind explaining?

135
I am trying to find a way to edit the names of Lenna, Krile, and Faris for either the SNES or GBA version of FFV, but don't know where to look. Does anyone know if it is possible via hex editing or other means?

First off, I don't even know what FFRK stands for or is.

Final Fantasy Record Keeper? It's an app for iOS/ Android that features battles from FF I-XIII. The sprites used reflect those of the GBA games. Also, I am new to the community; that is why I came for help. It would be greatly appreciated if you could aid in this project.

Newcomer's Board / Final Fantasy III (NES/ Famicom) GBA Hack
« on: May 22, 2015, 10:42:45 pm »
I'm looking for some GBA ROM hackers that are avid fans of the original Final Fantasy 3. Not Final Fantasy 6! Any FF fan knows that the remake releases for the GBA included 1&2 Dawn of Souls, 4 Advance, 5 Advance, and 6 Advance. The best entry in the series just hasn't received enough love!

Using the base sprites from FFRK, the music remastered (or original), the dialogue from the DS version, the ROM of an  advance remake, and the knowledge of the community, I believe we can make a fan version of FF3 Advance.  ;)

 Let me know if you are interested and what skills you have. Post here or email nberger99@gmail.com  :) Happy hacking!
