Quote from: hmsong on March 28, 2023, 07:23:44 PMWhile I CAN change it, the description of the item (in the ring menu) will not match the effect. So no, I will not change it.Hmm. I'm not seeing the freeze. What specific ROM and patches did you use? I assume you used the typical (and only, as far as I know) fan translation if you used SD3.Is anyone else experiencing the same freeze?
Quote from: bmathew on March 29, 2023, 01:12:29 AMBah. Well, in that case, can you make one of the seeds restore more MP? There's not enough MP restoring items.
Quote from: Mr X on March 29, 2023, 04:06:36 AMI used the Trials of Mana, like the game just stops the moment I press the cursor over the mr desth god icon in menu screen (not the ring menu)
Quote from: praetarius5018 on March 29, 2023, 05:53:27 AMI guess the descriptions for spells you're not supposed to have reads from unrelated areas since no translator expected the game to reach there. So depending on the translation it may either result in garbage text or, well, crashes.I think for Sin of Mana I snuck in a table that re-maps the description to the ones of other spells.E.g. Fireball stays Fireball but Ghost Road (formerly enemy-exclusive) gets the one from Ghost (Charlie's spell). Not perfect but at least no screen barf.
Quote from: hmsong on March 29, 2023, 06:48:38 PMHmm. I hesitate to do that, because MP is the real life line if you use Heal Light often. But very well. I'm not gonna make one of the seeds (most likely ??? Seed) restore crazy amount of MP, but I'll make it so that it can restore MT MP restore, assuming the animation works. Probably 20 MP, just like Magic Walnut.
Quote from: hmsong on March 29, 2023, 06:48:38 PMJust as you did, I'll try to post the already-existing-description (at least it won't freeze the game). I'm guessing there's some sort of "pointer" that directs the description to the spell. Worst case scenario, I'll make one for ToM separately.
Quote from: bmathew on March 30, 2023, 12:24:06 AMI was actually hoping for something that can replace Magic Walnut, meaning something more powerful than Magic Walnut.Also, Sleep Flower sucks. Why not also give it poison property, like what happened with SoM turbo?
Quote from: praetarius5018 on March 30, 2023, 11:17:11 AMPointer for SD3 at least is at C4BE5A +2x spellID,except for IDs 0x50 or higher it subtracts 0x2A from that, so 0x50 is at C4BEA6 as well (very much not intended to for the spell description list),also IDs 0x93 or higher all read the pointer from C4BF0EIt is very likely that the pointers will vary for each translation patch.The alternative would be changing which spellID is past there, and that requires ASM.
Quote from: praetarius5018 on March 31, 2023, 03:37:14 AMAs I said, I had to employ asm to replace the actual id passed along the check. I left the pointers alone.
Quote from: hmsong on March 31, 2023, 07:27:54 PMYes, but the description pointer only goes to spell 84 (Dark Fear), and then 93 (Black Rain). All spells between that and after 93 point to somewhere else, and I don't know where those pointers are. At least for the fan translation and ToM.
Quote from: praetarius5018 on March 30, 2023, 11:17:11 AMIDs 0x93 or higher all read the pointer from C4BF0E
Quote from: praetarius5018 on March 30, 2023, 11:17:11 AMalso IDs 0x93 or higher all read the pointer from C4BF0E
Quote from: praetarius5018 on April 01, 2023, 07:05:11 PMMaybe that was changed in trials, but in SD3 all of the spells 0x93 and above use the same pointer. Might explain why it doesn't crash in all versions.
Quote from: soul_knight on April 02, 2023, 10:23:47 AMHey, when Grell gets damaged, it does "Funky Dance", but it doesn't seem to do anything. What exactly is it supposed to do? Does anyone know? My guts tell me that it's supposed to lower your max hp or something.
Quote from: hmsong on April 05, 2023, 10:09:03 PMSay, I know that for you Sin of Mana, you were able to change the text (such as equipment names). So that means that you were able to figure out the fan translation's "Letters-to-values" formula, right?
Quote from: hmsong on April 05, 2023, 10:09:03 PMI know that many of them probably uses some sort of combinations, but could you please tell me that formula? I want to fix some of the spellings from the fan translation (ex:"Kamen no Doushi" to "Masked Mage", "Iormungand" to "Jormungand", etc). I know that they're in the FB bank somewhere, so if I have some rough idea of what I'm looking for, I think I can find and fix those.
