Finally after several attempts at rom hacking, I am actually close to finishing a project
Many people to thank for how far I made it...
AlexKC who discovered how enemy variables work, and other data on a Gamefaqs thread from 2011
Gameboy9 who discovered a majority of the data 2 years ago on the original DW2 thread here
Too many names to think of here, but there are 2 in particular that have helped on various things.
Disch for technical help and patience when I struggled to grasp how code works
King Mike for help with many things in the 5+ years of visiting here, and overall help in the rhdn community
There are many others to thank as well, given the 4-5 games I have attempted
Ok... Now onto what I have so far
Complete overhaul of the equipment, with the most viable use of a limited roster.
Jailors key now opens all doors without any glitches, through the open routine.
Panacea and Yggdrasil Dew both have dual use. Revive from Leaf and Healmore. There is text overlap across the screen from the added function of Healmore.
Treasure drops are now good to excellent. Chest contents ended up better then expected.
Enemy choices expanded past the DW world as you will see. I wanted favorites and dragons first. Then I set up what now looks balanced, mixed with the creative ideas I chose. Palettes were redone for most enemies, and several changes were made as I went along.
Magic was a chore with limited options for characters. Enemies now have 5 breath attacks, 3 group fire spells, and 3 single target fire spells.
Enemy build, formations, and zoning, are currently in progress (line 678-1029)... Patch #5 has all other changes in "current work" already applied.
The final few things are much less difficult now, and I also wanted to share all the data for others who might be interested (beer)
Tell me what you guys think... I am still contemplating possible enemy changes.
Also, if anyone wants to look into the code, there are 3 text related errors that I know of... Panacea, Yggsdrasil Dew, and power shield.
Last thing... I am hoping to have this complete this month...
Hopefully this link works properly
