You have to start it but it finishes most of it.

You have to draw one line, and it autofinishes.

I wonder if the same routine made for Julius mode might work with the Main Game.
I mean, this is my theory:

  • Debug Julius mode to know where the routine for when you defeat a boss is, which completely bypasses the Seal thing in Julius mode.
  • Debug the main game (Soma mode) and find the routine and the jump to said routine for when you defeat a boss, which enables the Seals.
  • Modify the jump to the main game Seals subroutine to instead jump to the subroutine for Julius mode after you defeat a boss. This code from Julius mode could be put into an expanded/unused area, the only thing which should be modified is the JSL (or it's equivalent in ARM) that jumps into the main game Seals boss subroutine.

Might be purely theoretical, but it might work, although it would require someone quite knowledgeable in ARM and NO$GBA to properly debug it (or whatever other DS debugger thee is)

No need to PM, codes aren't illegal :P

But why wouldn't you want seals in the game?
I mean, just look at them:



You can't just simply ditch those beautiful eyes!  :-[

Oh how I'd love to see some seperate hack that just pops that picture up with a sound effect before a boss dies rather than those dumb stylus minigames.  :laugh:

"Graaaaah!!!" *flash* *seal pic* "ART! ART! ART!" *flash* *boss dies*
Like Super Mario Land? Then you'll love my first completed Rom Hack: Maniac on the Run!

Here's the complete save file for Dawn of Sorrow (my friend's, he played through the entire game with the code). This is great for testing if some mobs start acting strangely with the code patch.

Gamefaqs saves also work fine, you just need a offline convertor.

Too much of a hassle for some people.
Why doesn't Gamefaqs just upload proper game saves?

Yesterday I was busy converting a Rayman Revolution game save. It's not hard, but you have to look up how it works.

They've never supported emulation or flash carts.

Hehe, then why do they upload these saves?

You need a action replay to use them. Or converter.

Well, I beat the 2nd boss finally and the seal was still easy to do. I was testing with the patch. For some reason some seals to complete automatically but some you still have to do.

Hey guys, I haven't had as much time to work on this as I thought I would, so for now I'll just drop another drawing. This time it's Dmitri, lines already cleaned.


(a bit more handsome than it should, maybe, but I couldn't help it :laugh: )

Only after I've colored both Dmitri an Dario (in line with my finished Celia drawing), I'll start working on them as sprites. And after that, as I said earlier, I also plan to give some of the other portraits a personal tweak as well, for consistency's sake (you'll judge if you want to use them or not).

... So yeah, I still have lots of stuff to do for DoS, and I might take awhile, but take this humble update as an assurance: this won't go off my to-do list until it's done properly :beer:

Nice to hear from you again, azulo! :D
Amazing work you did there with Dmitrii, I'm sure the coloured versions will be superb. :)

I didn't know you wanted to retouch the others, it's fine by me!
Thanks for helping out with this project!
I really appreciate it.

I assume that with the holidays, end of semester and such azulo might busy.
Let's just let him have his space to work his wonders, he already expressed he is determined to the project, so I'd like to give him his time and space to do so. I can happily wait for him. :)

Ah, yes, I kind of forgot at which stage we were in. Take your time Azulo, a rushed project is an unprofessional one :laugh:

Well, that drawing looks pretty good. Can't wait to see the guy with the fur collar too.

Thanks for your kind comments, trust and interest guys. I didn't want to bump up the thread before I finished, but one of you just PM'd me, so maybe I do need to reassure you that YES, I'M STILL GOING TO DO IT. In fact I already inked and did 90% of the coloring of both portraits I previewed on my last couple of posts.

If you're curious why I disappeared: I've been working on this on-and-off, but my current project/job is mostly writing, and switching back to a drawing mentality takes a bit of extra effort during this time (I need to practice quite a bit before tackling public stuff so I won't suck).

But yeah, you guys have been patient enough. I'm currently on a summer trip, but I'll get it done asap.

Last time I tried the hack I really enjoyed it. I don't think I got to the part with those two characters you were gonna draw. I still got alot of psp games to play so no rush. I don't plan on getting the ds back for a while.
