  1. Hack to allow preview of equipment in shops. Headered Unheadered
  2. Pretty clear that I am incapable of finishing projects, so this is probably dead. I may not even be alive to finish it soon anyway.
  3. There is an all-in-one either on ff6hacking or slickproductions.org. Not sure of its working state though. The problem with something like that is that so much has changed the disassemblies would only be barely relevent. Meltdown became a massive patchwork mess partially due to that. I also started on it before I understood the concept of building a hack, so I have a lot of things I can't fix now like text assignment and a weird black box on the overworld which I can't fix with any amount of map editing. I'm basically at the point that I can't conscientiously continue to work on it and produce it in the this state. I was also losing motivation due to balance issues, such as dealing with esper stat distribution (which is why I plan to simplify it to something closer to BNW, with two options per esper) and damage formulas being wonky. Other bugs were also frequently popping up as I worked.
  4. I actually plan to release a few once they're cleaned up and made presentable. Natural Magic for the whole party was to be first on the list, but that needs rewritten entirely because it's horribly coded and unoptimized.
  5. Frankly surprised there's still interest in this hack given the amount of time it's remained stagnant. Unfortunately I've discovered irrecoverable bugs, and my development cycle has become such a haphazard mess that I'm likely going to scrap it. I have ideas in mind for a replacement hack, utilizing a lot of the secondary mechanics I'd built for this, but using a different main mechanic (think SaGa). I'll make a thread for it and have this one closed once I have more hammered down. I can say there will be some major changes though. For instance: Elements will be recoded to utilize a % damage variable which can strengthen or weaken a spell's damage. Defense is also being recoded to produce diminishing returns at high numbers. I'm undecided what to do with espers. I may implement a stripped down version of Meltdown's esper system, which I'd kind of been wanting to do anyway.
  6. At first it'll just be a label. We're spitballing bonus perk ideas for down the road.
  7. Fix for the equip/relic stat display issue: Headered: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2w43yk9xqoxe3ry/[h]Y_Equip_Fix.ips?dl=0 Unheadered: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uey0fudreae61ap/[n]Y_Equip_Fix.ips?dl=0 I'll need to send the updated file to Synchysi as well, since this patch moves some stuff that will otherwise just be useless.
  8. We just discovered a game breaking bug with the quarterstaff and doomstick: the game outright crashes if they proc. Headered fix: https://www.dropbox.com/s/c4igwepxtoetwb8/[h]BNW_1.8.5_quartrstaff_fix.ips?dl=0 Unheadered fix: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jxvkist3pj768jp/[n]BNW_1.8.5_quartrstaff_fix.ips?dl=0
  9. PB's in a situation where its creators all have lives outside of hacking now and struggle to find the motivation or time to work on it on any regular basis. My project isn't too much younger than theirs, I believe.
  10. Plz restore optimize. I don't know how to equip things.
  11. I'm actually working on making space to expand the F1 targetting command's jump table. I've substantially expanded the miscellaneous command to include a lot of stat manipulation stuff, and have added a few conditionals, but that's it thus far.
