So, this is the final fix, then:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/p6at06oixzd50xl/Wave_Ring.ips

It lets the old feeding wishes intact basically and only the highest tier now consists of Egg Ring and Wave Ring as the pinnacle of their snobby nature.

Though, in order to not having to expand I removed some items. As i felt it's inconsistent that they regardless of their element only ask for 3 specific fruits, but ignore the others, I removed these fruits from the lists. And I added Silver Rod regularly to one of the lists.



poncho, can you upload the final version of the AC item fix as well as the final aio then?


No idea about the thunder issue.

If the Le-Gion from Lufia II is the Ele-Gion from Lufia III, giving them the same name would be ideal - what's wrong with Raiju anyway? It seems clear enough to me that if Le-Gion from II is the same as Ele-Gion from Lufia III, then II is misnamed (and why it's dummied out) and should be Ele-Gion.

So settling on a name for Ele-Gion would be ideal .

One option, if you choose to name spells after the summons:
Raiju for the mythological thunderbeast,
Mizuchi for the japanese water dragon
Was the ice-valkyrie the Yuki-Onna from Japanese mythology?
Suzaku is probably the firebird in Japanese mythology, though it could also be a Hou-ou (edit: On second thought, go with Hou-ou, since Suzaku (Japanese name) is part of the four Constellations of Chinese mythology)

Other option:
If you're keeping the three other names, the fourth should be in line with that. Something like T.Beast might make sense, for 'Thunderbeast'.


Also, bloody hell, which order now do I need to do patches.  FRUE 2.13, AIO v20, vivified whatever numbers? Can't we get one of you to put together a complete unified Maxed Out Lufia II patch?

I'm waiting on the final aio and poncho verifying that everything is fine. Then I'll do some final balancing stuff and then put it together. Though, I'd suggest to play Spekkio instead of Frue.

As it's easy to lose track, the final aio will consists of...
- all the church/cross fixes
- frue Zap
- tileset fixes at Pico and the underwater cave
- jumping fix at Skygarden
- boundary fixes at Merix shop and Daos Shrine
- the Ancient Cave stairs fix
- the Ancient Cave items fix (final version)
- the flame jewel as blue chest item
- the poison bug fix
- the mirror bug fix
- the inn stay fix
- the Lufia report fix
- the drop rate change
- the CM feeding tier fix including the Wave Ring

That's it, right?

poncho, please give me:
- the final aio
- the final AC items fix
- the final fix which has all the church/cross fixes, but nothing else
- the submarine cave fix (unless it's included to the church patch)

I should have the final church only patch, but I lost track.  :D
So then I can put the patches separately in as well. Then I'll write some short readmes and finally load everything up.

And then vivify will put HIS patch on top of the ... whatever the final one is?!

Y'all have this Lufia Voltron going on and I'd like to not try to figure out which parts goes. I just want FORM BLAZING SWORD!

Then we are ready, eh?

Though, there's one glitch I still remember. It's not that important, but it annoys me.

If you obtain a drop from battle - sometimes the item isn't properly displayed. If doesn't always happen, only if:
- you have at least 1 of the item in your inventory (but having it equipped is fine as long as no item is in the inventory)
- in case of certain items like some equipment (weapons seems fine, but e. g. stones are not fine)

Here are some saves:

Doesn't work unfortunately. Now, you get the message even if you don't get the item at all.

In case you have 99 already or more important your inventory is filled with other items and therefore you don't get the item in any way.


Everything else works fine - except the Chaed submarine Cave which still looks messy.

About the maps glitched in us version, in the spanish all appear fixed.

The spanish version has problems with some texts that has too many length
and at the end as example, the messages appear mixed.
But I can't make fixes without knowing how edit the script.

There's some objects without description like the "Armadura Mortal" (Deadly Armor)

Battle drop fix
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=11173160429716068106

16-bit vs 8-bit register mistake causes display bug. Confirmed glitch.

edit4: Lufia report fix.
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=06417180040781528965


note: Very tricky fix to make work. There appears to be 3 "unused" lufia report statistics bytes: 7e0b65, 7e0b66, 7e0b67.

Go to a church and save your game. It will now record the values for later loading.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work. I went to church, saved and reoaded. And then I did beat the AC, save at a church and check my report. However, after reloading my save, the last two values in the report again were 0.

Do you have a savestate sometime before you view the report?

I'm checking the hex values and it's there when I exit AC, save at church. Reset game and reload save. So there might be another spot nearby ending stats screen where it wipes them again.

 :beer:
Just to clarify for anyone else--I've sent Digitsie a PM--I am not working on any Lufia II patches. I'm primarily concerned with Lufia & the Fortress of Doom (Which is complete.) and Lufia: The Legend Returns. (Which will be complete soon.) While I have made input on Lufia II, I'm just asking questions in this topic since the three Lufia projects all aim to be as in-line with one another as possible.

Edit -
If the Le-Gion from Lufia II is the Ele-Gion from Lufia III, giving them the same name would be ideal - what's wrong with Raiju anyway? It seems clear enough to me that if Le-Gion from II is the same as Ele-Gion from Lufia III, then II is misnamed (and why it's dummied out) and should be Ele-Gion.
Ele-Gion actually isn't in Lufia 2. I typed my post a little wrong--I said Lufia 3 has the three more dummied thunder spells, when it was actually Lufia 1.

Lufia 1 has...
USABLE BY PARTY:
Le-Gi / Flash (Small thunderbolt, one foe)
Le-Gio / Bolt (Medium thunderbolt, one foe)
Le-Gion / Thunder (Huge thunderbolt, one foe)

UNUSABLE BY PARTY:
Ele-Gi / Shock (Small thunderbolt, all foes)
Ele-Gio / Plasma (Medium thunderbolt, all foes)
Ele-Gion / Skywrath (Huge thunderbolt, all foes) (Final boss attack only)


Lufia 2 has...
ALL USABLE BY PARTY:
Le-Gi / Flash (Small thunderbolt, one/group of/all foe/s)
Le-Gio / Bolt (Medium thunderbolt, one/group of/all foe/s)
Le-Gion / Thunder (Summons thunder beast to attack one/group of/all foe/s)


Lufia 3 has...
ALL USABLE BY PARTY:
Le-Gi / Flash (Small thunderbolt, one foe)
Le-Gio / Bolt (Medium thunderbolt, one foe)
Le-Gion / Thunder (Huge thunderbolt, one foe)
Ele-Gion / Storm (Summons thunder beast to attack all foes)


I would rather not rename the other spells, since I want to keep consistency with Lufia 2 as much as possible. But I can't keep both Le-Gion and Ele-Gion as "Thunder," hence the issue. Storm could work, I guess, but I was wondering if I should name it how Lufia 1's "Ele-Gion" is named, and rename it Skywrath. Then Lufia 3's most powerful elemental spells would be:

Firebird
Ice Valk
Skywrath

Thoughts?

(please see previous edit)

Does Lufia report re-save your game? That might be why it's recording zeroes again.

Is report screen only available after beating game?

Okay, here are some savestates as well as a modified test ROM.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/vxlm1j87hgpif07/Neuer+Ordner+%289%29.zip



The report normally only appears at the end, but now there's a random giant spider in Parcelyte's throne room who gives the report if refusing to fight.

Save 006 is the one where I regained some values for these two. (However, i cheated - otherwise floor would be 99 instead of 1.)

However, at save 008 they are 0 again.



7E05AEF1 is the code to instantly get to floor 99.

83DC6B80
83BD1E80 to walk through walls.

And the Master's HP are set to 1.


You might be right about the game saving when actually calling the report itself.

Did you apply report.ips? It's not in modified test ROM. Patched it.

Loaded state0. Went to church. Saved. Reset.
Loaded. Talked to spider. Got report. Okay.
Reset game. Loaded game again. Talked to spider. Got report. Okay.
(note: That's a really neat trick btw!)


Checked aio24 and it's in there also.

Because it seems like 95-99% names are consistent within all the series, I vote Skywrath. Since it's already there now. And Storm is a timid name. And if you add summoning monsters to Lufia I, I suppose you get Lufia II,III-like spells.

Frue Lufia has a lot item name changes from "official" English. I think they worked out better. Storm -> Skywrath is fair.

That's two votes for Skywrath then.

So just to clarify, those of us in the audience who want to apply the new tweaks ASAP should get these patches:

- All-in-one 24
- Submarine Cave fix
- Ancient Cave items fix
- Chaed Cave v2

And apply them over a clean Frue Lufia ROM?
