Hey there, new member here. I previously tried snooping around on Serene’s Forest but the hacking scene there doesn’t seem to be quite as active as it is here, comparatively speaking. Most of the topics there are several years old with no new contributions or comments…
Anyway, so I’ve tried searching this site now, and reading through topics that asked similar questions, but I haven’t found anything concrete so I’m hoping I can get an answer by just asking! So
Question 1) Is anyone aware of a way to remove the limit of 5 Support conversations from FE6? I know there was a patch for this for FE7 floating around, which allowed you to have supports with up to six partners at once, but could only have one single A support. I was hoping to be able to implement something like that in a FE6 hack I’m working on. Best I can tell, I’d need to edit a hex value somewhere to do it, but while I have a hex editor, I have no idea how I’d go about figuring out which hex value in the thousands of lines of code controls this key value.
Question 2) I imagine this should be simpler, since I know there’s already a couple patches out there that do this; I’d like to change when Roy promotes, making the promotion occur sooner. If it weren’t for the fact that I already started working on my hack before learning of these promotion patches, I’d just have implemented one of those. But alas, my hack is already in progress and thus I’ve already modified the ROM by a good degree, so those promotion patches won’t work on my game anymore. So if someone could let me know how to go about manually editing that myself, that’d be very appreciated!
