Welp, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but... no, no we're not dead. Just delayed longer. I was hoping to begin working again in some small way, and then my AC started to crap out. I know that this is personal stuff, but it pertains to my working on the hack because I can't keep the computer on for too long of a time under these conditions and I need to focus on IRL activities with it; as bad luck always happens at the same time the hottest week of the year's incoming. Don't worry about me, I'll be fine. Just be aware that no work's really going to happen until further notice for the safety of my big machine which has crappy cooling methods. I'll be able to keep in touch with here a little via mobile stuff at least, however. A solution to all this garbage is in the works.
No work's been lost, everything's intact here. That said, once I get back there's going to be an update to the main patches before the 600 AD Beta. Why? Because I'd rather get these things out of the way so I don't need to do them extra to the beta later. Honestly, really small stuff:
-In the Winged Epoch's control explanation, you're told to press Y first. This is obviously not correct.
-Inside of Lavos, one of Frog's lines is without accent. I'll need to tend to this anyway. Frog's childhood will be kept unaltered in the main patches, at least for now.
-In Arris Dome, The person telling you to stay off of Death Peak should be mentioning it's importance.
-Lucca still mentions laboratories at Arris Dome. Not sure if to redirect this to the Ruins just gone through or Trann Dome yet.
-In at least one version, the text box when you open the chest with Valkyrie in the hero's tomb has a space between Valkyrie and the exclamation mark.
-I need to check the Dragon Tank Manual in SkyDark just in case.
-I need to make a decision about what to do with AmpliFire/Amplifier.
-Triple Raid learned display bug (possible misalignment, hopefully forcing TF to re-save the name will fix this).
-Something something drinking game.
-Lookover with Toma and his drinking. Most likely should tend to this before 600 AD.
-Hero Medal needs to be capitalized in the king's line when he's injured in bed. Hero itself is wrongly decapitalized in a couple places in the 600 AD castle too.
-Taban may be missing a comma or two in Lucca's House. Same with Masa and Mune after the first battle.
-Dornio Inn's uncensoring can be slightly improved, I think.
-Debuggest>Debugger EX (or something similar). It should be more like a Debugger Plus, and stealing from the DS version seems to fit just fine. Also, since the Proto line has version numbers it's only fitting that we treat this as an upgraded machine as well. This has some stakes in the previous point; if I revert Amplifier in some patches, Debuggest may also get the same treatment.
-Various indent cleaning:
-Truce Canyon Portal's got a line with an indent. Actually no, this isn't a line break. But I'll be tending to this anyway.
-It looks as if there is a one-space indent on the Zenan Bridge battle, but I need to make sure. It could just be the font.
-Ocean Palace has an indent or two.
-There appear to be some random indents in Magus's lines at the first meeting. Not sure quite how to handle this one yet.
-The line before the CronoNick prompt appears to either have a line break, or it's a case like Truce Canyon.
After this, there may be at least one update after the beta. It depends on if I feel like some changes need to be "ported over" or not.
