Quote from: Bregalad on December 08, 2013, 01:03:07 PMHowever I have to say something. It's a great idea to use the "ll" and "il" idioms for "Cecil" and "Tellah" but you should also use them in the game's text.
Quote from: vivify93 on November 29, 2013, 02:47:58 AMWell, I used it for Cecil because you can actually name him. If you noticed, I didn't use any of the il / li / ll icons in the out-of-battle dialogue, just the menu text and in-battle stuff. Since "Cecil" is a name variable, it counts as a menu item even when drawn in the out-of-battle dialogue, so it can display properly in dialogue because of that. il / li / ll all use the same hex byte as dual-tile encoding for the main game script; even if I wanted to insert them, it wouldn't work. In the Sheila example, it would show up as "Shetha" due to the il icon sharing the "th" DTE's byte. I hope this makes sense.
Quote from: Bregalad on December 08, 2013, 03:50:52 PMOh I'm sorry I didn't see it.And I'm absolutely sure there is a way to make it work for out-of-battle dialogue, too. It just needs a very simple hack into the DTE routine, to change the lower/upper bounds of DTE encoding range of values.
QuotePlus, all the values that DO use the DTE would have to be edited in the script otherwise you'll be getting some funky text strings.
Quote from: SabinSuplexedATrain on December 17, 2013, 09:06:36 AMI would love to try this, but I have a problem. I applied the patch but when I open the rom, a message says its corrupted and there's nothing but a black screen. I ran the rom through Goodtools so it should be a perfect dump. I don't know what else to do.
Quote from: vivify93 on December 17, 2013, 05:33:35 PMYou're applying it to Final Fantasy II v1.1 for SNES with a header, right? Let me know if you are and I'll see if I can't sort out the problem.
Quote from: SabinSuplexedATrain on December 17, 2013, 06:17:31 PMNo it didn't have a header, but I found one that did and now the patch works, I think. I still have one question though, the title screen reads "Final Fantasy IV" like expected, but there's two dots that are not in the title screen pic on the first page. One of these dots is next to the "I" in "IV" making it look like "A," and another is in the space inside the "V." I was just wondering if they were supposed to be there or if this means my rom is messed up. I'd post a screenshot but I don't think it'll let me.
Quote from: vivify93 on December 17, 2013, 06:53:18 PMa lot of people have had that title screen problem, and i think they said their issue was using a ROM without a header. you specifically said you are using a header, though, so i don't know what gives...anyone have any ideas?
