Skip opening world map event patch not installable

  • Hacking method: Febuilder
  • Base Game: Fe8

In the patches menu, the patch “Skip the event using the opening world map” is giving me an error, saying that the prerequisites are not met. I had this patch installed a while ago, but removed it to try and use the opening event, but now I once again don’t need it. If it helps, it also gave me this in the text box:

Uninstalling patches tends to break things, so avoid doing that in the future.
The easy solution would be to manually do what the patch does. Open the patch file, see the address where it writes to, then copy the contents of the .bin file on that address.

If that doesn’t work, send a report in the FEBuilder thread.

How do I see where it writes too? And where would I find it? I’m confused as to what I’m supposed to copy too

Open the hex editor, jump to 0xA39768 and type those bytes. Then open patches and install it. I am pretty sure this is safe because your rom has only 00s there. Failing this, send a report7z

@7743 uninstalling the skip world map opening patch shouldn’t write 00s to this address.

So it turns out that all lines from A39768 to A39CF0 were blank. I tried to fill in the blanks with the lines from a clean Sacred stones rom with the patch installed, but it seems to have not worked. I would upload a report, but I’m unable to post links

You probably edited the opening world map cutscene in the world map event editor and so the event got repointed, writing 00s to the original event address.

I think maybe he is just repointing the opening event.
That’s why the patch can’t take effect, and why I think it goes to 00 when uninstalled.
I can’t draw any conclusions since he doesn’t attach any data as evidence, but I think this is a very strong hypothesis.

You’ll be able to sometime tomorrow btw

Alas, that would seem to still not be the case, lol

feu says you can post links and images
If you still can’t, please dm @staff

I have no idea how to actually dm someone on here. Also not entirely sure who is counted as staff on here. Is it just moderators?
