Hello again. I'm still working on a Chrono Trigger ROM hack... and I still need some help. Rather than fix something I broke however, I need to break something that isn't broken.
At the beginning of any given battle, if Ayla is in your party, the game checks her current level and automatically assigns one of five weapons: Fist (25% crit), Fist (30% crit), Fist (35% crit), Iron Fist (May cause "Chaos"), or BronzeFist (9,999 damage on crits). It doesn't matter what she has equipped in her weapon slot before combat. If she has anything other than the weapon that's appropriate for her level equipped, the game automatically changes it over.
I want to disable that.
In my ROM hack, I want to change some of her fist weapons into equippable items, see... and if the game is automatically changing her weapon at the start of combat, I can't make that happen. I don't know my way around the game to poke around at random hex values and try and "luck" my way to breaking this, but I figured maybe someone here has dabbled in the battle routine code enough to know how to "break" Ayla's auto-equip code.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
