[FE7/8] More than 5 supports fix


#1

This patch removes the 5 support limit and replaces it with an “only one A support” limit.
UPDATED
Additionally, there is a limit of 6 support partners at a time (can be changed/removed by changing the byte at $D/E900F8), to prevent display glitches caused by 7 or more supports.

With well over 5 supports each, but no A supports:

With Eirika/Ephraim A, Eirika cannot get a second A support:

But she can get a B support:

There is a limit of 6 support partners at a time, though for FE7 you may want to change it to 5 (byte at $D900F8):

Example: Ephraim with 5 supports can get a 6th with either Eirika or L’arachel:

However once he supports Eirika he can no longer support L’arachel:

Sweet

Support Grinding intensifies


#3

Dude why you make soo goood hax?? You are an incoming hax lord you now, thanks for the patch


#4

And one last cuestion Before i Start the supports grinding…This does not affect the char endings right? Cause sometimes if you mess with the supports it kinks some endings, or just wont show specifict endings


#5

That’s why you only get one A support, so the paired endings don’t get messed up.


#6

So if we Credit you for this, can we use it in our own hacks.

I’m only asking since I still intend to start a project someday


#7

Anyone can use it or modify it as they please, credit or no credit. Now go make a hack.


#8

I have a backup, but id like to make you a question, if i have those offsets occupied, with…uuhhh…something? Should i reppoint those random numbers or is it ok to rewritte those offsets? Or how do i reppoint your hack to freespaece?


#9

Make a backup, apply the patch, move the data at $D/E90080-127 and repoint it, then copy back the old data from your backup.

Edit: the pointer would actually be to $D/E90081, i.e. 81 00 E9 08, and replace it with a pointer to your new location+1.


#10

Updated the patch to only allow 6 support partners at a time, fixing graphical glitches and still allowing up to 10 potential partners. Also streamlined it so it actually takes up less space than before.

If you already have the patch installed, paste this hex:
FE8 - paste to $E90080

I just checked, that offset is used to poison weapon effect, the original one, it bricked a clean rom


#12

it stops the game if you are poisoned and your turn begins, same happens if you poison the enemy and the enemy phase begins, and i dont now if i did it wrong, but it looks like i could not fix it…T_T


#13

I tried it with clean roms for both FE7 and FE8 and I can’t reproduce the problem. Try redownloading the patch?


#14

It looks like this new patch does not brick clean roms…So i would ask you some advice. It looks like pasting the part that was overwritten by yor patch, did not work in fixing my problem…so, now we have your raw data, if i paste it to other offset, what else do i have to change for it to work?


#15

Okay, we’ll go step by step.

First, save a copy of your unpatched rom.
Then apply the new patch using NUPS.
In the patched rom, copy $E90080-123 (FE8) / $D90080-123 (FE7), or copy the hex I posted.
Paste it to a free offset ending in 0, 4, 8, or C.
Using the search and replace function, replace the pointer to $D/E90081 with a pointer to your new location + 1.
Finally go back to your unpatched rom, copy whatever you have at $E/D90080-123, and paste it into the same place in the patched rom.


#16

Ok, ill do it, im sorry, i just checked my backups, it was not your patch that bricked my poison, ill do what you said :smile:


#17

It finally worked out, again, im sorry for my backups mistake, and thanks a lot for always helping and making awesome hacks :slight_smile:


#18

Could you repost the links for this? I’m getting an error on dropbox.
Thanks!


#19

Updated the links in the OP, thanks for the heads up


#20

Awesome!
