Another day, another question thread!
This time, I’ve got a few questions about the Class Roll that appears after the title screen. It rolls through different sets of characters depending on how far you’ve progressed in the game.
For example, a brand new game shows 6 units (Lyn, Kent, Florina, Wil Dorcas & Serra). After you have cleared a set number of chapters, the next set of 6 (Erk, Matthew, you get the idea) are added to the start of the class roll extending it to 12 units.
My main question is how would I find what causes the list to change to the longer list?
I’ve located the pointer to the full table, and tracing it was a doozy. Basically it’s a table of pointers to pointers … to pointers of actual unit entries. I’ll spare the thread from the finer details unless anyone out there is particularly curious as to how it was organized.
I now understand the architecture of the different tables, but I don’t know what makes the game load each different pointer for the next, longer list as you progress.
Is there a set chapter that changes it (say after you beat chapter 5 it loads the next list)
Is there another mechanism that changes it?
Perhaps most importantly:
3) Could the mechanism be altered to suit ones need? How would I go about learning these details?
Any tips or advice to begin this quest of madness are appreciated!
