v2.43 is now available. https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1659/

- Several dialogue updates, including a rework of the intro and a removal of the term Esperland. It is now "The Esper Plane." Thanks to Spooniest for helping me with the intro.
- Bit the bullet and changed Lit/Lit2/Lit3 to Bolt/Bolt2/Bolt3.
- Fusoya can now act while Regen is in effect.
- Multiple item descriptions normalized.
- Appendices (Formerly Supplements) have been remade to look more attractive.

Always loved this hack, and your docs are always short of amazement, I think only Maeson has you beat on that front.

But calling this kind of inconstancy more attractive... some nerve. ;)



Anyways, I think it's time for a replay of this.

And FYI: that CRC32: EE345FBD "to be used" is wrong I think.

That's the CRC32 I get when I hash my base ROM on RHDN and in HxD. As far as I can tell it's correct.

Now is a great time to replay. Feel free to report any typos or any potential improvements to the script. I'm always evolving!

BTW, I fixed the lowercase F in the status glossary. :P I'll even submit a new archive to RHDN!

I bet your OCD was killing you until that went live, heh.

About the CRC32, then what you have listed must be the "internal" ROM's CRC32 and not the actual ROM itself, see here.

https://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php?page=show_record&s=49&n=0795

You have listed ["EE345FBD"];
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1659/

Similarly, another FFII hack using the same ROM (minus the header part for patching) ["23084FCD"];

I don't have OCD, but you pointed it out so I thought it'd be prudent to fix it now.

Interesting! Thanks, I'll get around to updating this in the next few days then.

It wasn't a knock, me and you are the same, we like our consistencies, I just call it OCD, even thought it might not be the literally hardcore chronic, long-lasting disorder that doctors tell you that you have. ;D

It's just confusing that's all, you just need to change the wording a bit or have two listed.

File CRC:
Internal ROM: CRC

Oh no it's OK! I didn't think it was a knock, I just wanted to clarify.

I had to fix some typos I found in the readme, so I updated the hashes on RHDN and in the readme with the ones Special told me about.

Found even more readme errors, so as an excuse I bundled it with v2.44. This fixes the bug where you could trade 2+ Pink Tails for only 1 Adamant Armor, thus wasting your precious time and rare items. Credit to chillyfeez.

I noticed that with the latest v2.44, the checksum now says it's wrong compared to the previous version v2.43 which was right, is this normal?

v2.43


v2.44

Good eye, Special. I've been told by a few sources that SNES checksums mean pretty much nothing in the grand scheme of things. It can be fixed with the tool IPSandSum https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/499

It seems it was prudent to me to submit a new version anyhow, because it seems I may have forgotten to bundle the Adamant Grotto fix in with the new version despite my claims. No new version number.

edit - its up now

I'm confused, though

Is the Bard actually Spoony or was it just like a typo

... Sorry viv I'm just bored
