Final Fantasy Tactics Complete V2
« on: August 27, 2019, 02:26:41 pm »
There doesn't seem to be a patch available for download. https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/4508/
Can someone provide a link to the patch?

Thank you.

It was taken down for a reason.

Yeah, and then it was listed again with the sprites taken out of it. If it's kosher as it says it is, why no link?

in 2.0 (August 26):
-Fixed enemies using player inventory.
-Even though we use modified versions of all asm hacks, many small hacks were removed.
All of FFT Complete patch is also removed. This patch will be discontinued (no more
public releases, so don't bother to check for updates, thanks to the worst modder of the
planet).

do you really want to play a patch that's never getting updated because the author is a thief and a big baby

Romhacking drama is always hilarious to me, like did the original hacker get Squares permission first hand to do his hack? Of course not, yet he/she thinks he owns "his work" and can do "take-downs" on others when they use it.

Not taking anyone's side, but where did you get that from? All I see in the notes is this:

"Since v2.0, this patch:
-does not contain anything from 'FFT Complete'
-all custom sprites were removed"

Are you quoting the author from somewhere other than the read me?

I'm not saying it isn't the "honorable" thing to do, but someone else already did the "take-down" request for this hack, instead of just PMing the author and figuring things out privately, as if this "Twinees" guys' stuff is copyright protected and owned by him...

the quote is literally from the readme hosted on the site

basically this person used a bunch of ASM hacks and whatnot from several FFHacktics users without permission

and did a bunch of multi-account sockpuppeting to promote the hack on reddit/FFHacktics

also from the page: "Special thanks to: melonhead for all he did (a truly master hacker, not like some others)."
