    FFT, FFVI
  1. I am late to the party, but just wanted to drop by to offer a note of general encouragement!
  2. So after having a PPF sitting on my hard drive literally for years I finally decided to give this a whirl. (I downloaded the most recent version first though.) A friend recently sent me a Steam code for "Stardew Valley." When I found myself seriously considering whether to play a Harvest Moon clone, I knew it was time to find a good mod, and fast! Initial reaction: Oh my goodness, there is so much going on. I just charged in blindly and selected things from menus until everyone was dead. It worked, but wow, there sure were a lot of things to select from those menus. The second battle confirmed this. As opposed to vanilla FFT where one has access to two classes with about three unlocked abilities apiece, here one has a starting party of, what, seven classes to choose from? Each with four moves or so. That's a lot up front! I found it quite overwhelming. Given my recent track record, I will probably pick this up once in a while every few months or so. But despite that, I'm glad that I after all this time I've finally played a little Monster Tactics!
  3. There were serious problems with the ID site's ability to allow new members to join the forum, and these problems had persisted for so long that we hung out our shingle over here. So this place is about MODS! Of varying levels of difficulty.
  4. More (failed) test results: Putting in the "Extra value" field a) a full URL, b) the v=? value of a YouTube video or c) the index number of a video within the playlist of the "Media URL" each produces the same result: zilch. Further observation: When you go to edit a video page, an example "Media URL" is given as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oh4i5ECWblo. It's not a link, just an unhighlightable piece of text to tell you what a URL looks like. You can't click on this, but have to type it in to see what video it's not-linking to. Clearly, this is an amazing opportunity for an embedded Rick Roll.
  5. Regardless of the state (or not) of Tides (did that just go on hiatus? I thought it died due to hard drive failure or something) in any case it's good to have you back, Kyozo. Many happy returns!
  6. (With apologies for double-post) Horde: If I could figure out how to (ab)use my Mod powers, I would just edit your video thread directly, but since I can't, here's what you can do to change this from a *video* embed to a *playlist* embed: Under "Media URL" remove the reference to any individual video and replace it with: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWVfQzx9dUA6_KVdLtlEf4w7L951q68mO That will link to the playlist, which means that when you back-add the older episodes to the playlist it will automatically begin with them. I think. I still have no idea how the "extra videos" functionality works ... though it sounds cool.
  7. I recall having a bit of trouble putting up videos via playlist last week. By which I mean, it took me several tries to get it right (playlist rather than video). I forget exactly what my difficulty was. I'm playing around with a test thread to try out the "extra video" functionality. I can't get it to work ... will keep playing around. Edit: Here's what I know: When you turn on "Extra videos", whatever title ("key") you give them, each "extra" video links to "videos/threadname/&extra=0" and then "videos/threadname/&extra=1". Whatever that means. As we figure this out, we should probably make an FAQ/sticky for future first-time video posters. Helpful hints might include the following: To add a playlist (not just a single video), without using the "extra video" feature, do this: Under "Media URL" enter the URL of the playlist, without any reference to the specific video! So if you want to add a playlist, what you enter under "Media URL" should look something like this "https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnHpnycN1aVf3I5VVBVFvyAwf6LW16tiJ" not this "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47sNva0O_6Q&list=PLnHpnycN1aVf3I5VVBVFvyAwf6LW16tiJ&index=1" or this "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47sNva0O_6Q&list=PLnHpnycN1aVf3I5VVBVFvyAwf6LW16tiJ".
  8. I'll post the same picture I did back on ID: (I'm the one standing.)
  9. Hi all. Bishop here. Bishop is an old family name (we arrived in the colony of Connecticut in 1689), I am not actually a bishop. I am, however, actually a Catholic priest. (I may give thorough answers to your questions about religion; or I may ignore them if I am coming here to escape the fact that I am an introvert tasked with guiding people through all the most emotionally fraught moments of their lives. Depends on my mood.) I rarely visit chat but like to catch up on the forum regularly. I once organized a 1.3 "draft" that created six rather fun challenge runs, but I might be better known for breaking BNW.
  10. (Hmm, 13 days, is this a necropost? Sorry not sorry.) Loved Jot5; will hopefully play the re-release some day. Welcome to our humble home!
  11. Back on Insane Difficulty we had a "class draft" challenge. I never finished my run but I had a lot of fun for as far as I could get without any revival abilities!
  12. Sounds wonderful. I look forward to it!
  13. I haven't played this mod yet (how many years have to pass before I can no longer say "yet"?) but I just wanted to say: awesome stuff, ronlyn, thanks for the commentary!
