Good deal, glad you got it working!

Okay I just got it to work.

So yesterday I used SBWin to convert my rom from MD to BIN or SMD because Lunar IPS does not detect MD. Then after patching I had the error.

What I did just now was just directly rename the file from MD to SMD. Lunar IPS detected it, patching went just fine and worked correctly.

 :thumbsup:
This also seems to be a problem with FLIPS.  Never noticed it until now because I've never patched an MD file until now. XD

Actually I patched with FLIPS, dunno if it would have worked the same with lunar, but for now I'm sticking with FLIPS I just have a general good feeling about that software, seems more recent (correct me if I'm wrong about that).  :police:

Nah, you're right about FLIPS.

Interesting, I think it may be just the ROM format and not the MD file for sure; I tested this with Phantasy Star IV proper-caser since the ROM info says MD, it's working.

Maybe PSII Improvement just only works on BIN format.

I thought they were all the same image file but with different extensions. Color me surprised.

vivify93 I went through the readme for your PSIV proper-caser patch and noted you had an issue with editing out the dashes in item names. I was cleaning up some text strings (stuff that comes up when the inventory's full) and checked that issue while I was at it. The game will think a $00 value (blank tile) is a spacer value when assembling those in-battle messages. That's why those names get truncated. If you use $57 instead it will be a blank tile from further down in the font table and you won't have that problem.

Oh, thank you LadyAbaxa! Will this work without issue? Like, it won't appear corrupted anywhere, will it?

Edit-


Seems like it's working fine. Guess there'll be a new release soon.

Rock guitars very loud

Debating whether to stick this up on the Steam page :D But perhaps that'd be going a bit too far.

This has been a long time coming: Phantasy Star IV Proper-caser is now v0.6 and it includes lory1990's bug fix patch.

Phantasy Star II Improvement has also been v3.5 for quite a while now, and I apologize for not posting about it here sooner.

The Steam versions have been updated as well.

Are you going to rename this hack "Phantasy Star IV Proper-caser" to "Phantasy Star IV Improvement" then? Since it changes more then just letter cases now.

No, for a couple of reasons. I didn't do the bug fixing, for one. For two, I'm still unable to do what I want to do with PSIV. (While keeping Lory's bug fix) If I were able to achieve my goals, my PSIV project would probably be renamed "Phantasy Star IV Consistence".

Edit - These are the potential ideas I'd like to execute for Consistence.

That's great news, vivify. Do you think there's any possibility of merging Iory1990's PSII bugfix with your v3.5 Improvement hack too?

I won't, unfortunately. At the very least, I have his important fixes in already. :)
