Greetings to the rom hacking community. i was here several years ago trying, to no avail to learn how to use Temporal Flux. i still wish to do this, and will need a lot of insight. but that is for later.

the purpose of this post is for the rom hack that i have just completed. I changed up a lot in Chrono Trigger via the text editor and editor companion. I wish to release this to share on this site.

What i am asking fellow members, is what file/image hosts are best to use for submissions. I am a noob to every aspect of this.

Thanks,
Tim

I tried linking my dropbox on the submissions page but it didn't work. adding .rar & .png to the links would make them lead to an error page, not to the files. Anybody know how to make it work with dropbox? I'm limited to frustrating mobile internet right now & want to keep this simple.

Yea I just submitted a hack recently and tried to use Dropbox.  Couldnt get t to work either

Do these links start with "https://"? I know that can cause a rather unhelpful error message at the moment.
Mauron wuz here.

mojoe128

Yea the links i was trying to use were https

topcat

mine didnt. i got a message saying the url has to end in .rar or .png

the files in the links did end in these extensions, but the links did not, and adding it to the links only lead to an error page.

so what filehosts do you guys use? lol. I'd really like to share this and get some feedback, maybe get a little cred so folks might be willing to do a little teaching of more advanced utilities like temporal flux.

 Temporal  Flux isn't too hard to learn.  You have to dissect the events and see how each command works.  You could use Gato's  event to help understand basic commands.

SOMEONE PLEASE DIRECT ME TO A VERIFIED WORKING FILEHOST SITE THAT WILL WORK FOR SUBMISSIONS, PLEASE.

Dropbox will work. The Share Link button next to the files will give you a direct link to the file. That is what you need.
Mauron wuz here.

Sir, all you had to do was read the submission guidelines at the top of the submission form. Or, you could have clicked the help icon next to the file field. Either of those would provide you with a page with our recommendations... Please do not submit anything to us without having read the guidelines.

those ? tiles did not open correctly on my mobile device, and none pf the newbie pages i read made any mention of any  file hosts.
i overlooked the link in the guidelines. i thought it was in regards to reccomended formats.

thanks, i will try again.

well, idk wtf. dropbox will only be mobile for me & doesnt have any extra options for link generation. when i tried it yesterday there were 4 links to copy, none of them worked.

tried the other 2 reccommendations in the link on the submission form. zebucket seemed to be working ut only for half of the files. got the following messages, even though they link directly to the files as they should.

1. The value 'www.bwass.org/bucket/Chrono%20Trigger
%20Envy%20Hack_00005.png' is not a valid URL. It MUST be a
full URL!
2. 'www.bwass.org/bucket/Chrono Trigger Envy
Hack_00005.png' is not responding or is an invalid image file!
3. The value 'www.bwass.org/bucket/Chrono%20Trigger%20-
%20Envy%20Hack.rar' is not a valid URL. It MUST be a full
URL!

stuck and starting to lose interest due to frustration. if anybody has any suggestions or interest in direct sending im open to it. otherwise im done trying for a while. i dont get to a wifi spot often & im ready to slam my phone against a wall.

thanks for the advce & interest for whom it applies. i hope i can get this thing up. its worth a playthrough.

for #1 and #3, add an "http://" in front of the URLs.  #2 probably isn't working due to the spaces in there, but you should be fine working from #1.

So i did a bugfix & tried the upload again... and IT WORKED. I just got the submission confirmation.

THANK YOU FOR THE HELP!

I hope it is well recieved. :laugh:
