The Communal To-Do List


#45

Done and done. Check my dump of ASM stuff.


#46

I didn’t read the whole list, but how about an Arms Scroll? Would love to have the use of something like that.


#47

It’s there! I’ll hit some of the custom item requests after I finish augmenting the battle routine.


#48

Sahweet! Color me interested!

How about luck on promotion? That’s a tiny thing but it’d be neat to have.


#49

I’d imagine it’s a small fix. I’ll look at some of the docs that @Icecube left me and see if I can implement that… Probably Saturday; I’m going to be busy tomorrow.

Edit: I added it to the OP for you.


#50

Uhm… it almost works? O.o? I’ll debug this.

Edit: [I got it][2]. Sticking it in my ASM dump.

#51

Oh wow, fuckin shit that was fast. Dumbledore are you back from the dead or something?


#52

Making a mental note that I’ll add this and Hextator’s patch that allows for enemy luck growth to FireShell.


#53

Another idea, though this one is fairly complicated and probably not worth the effort.

I was hoping there might be a way to make enemies calculate stat bonuses gained from weapons when attacking. Fior example, if I have Luce which has a 0 in MGT but a +25 gain in the MAG stat, VS a Fire tome with only 1 MGT and no MAG bonus, the enemies only choose to use the Fire tome because they don’t see the +24 damage that Luce has over the Fire tome, see? This includes missing out on other stats that could be boosted, like HP, DEF, RES, SPD, etc.

Dunno how you’d solve that issue, but there’s the suggestion anyway.


[FE7] Fix for calculated Might on AI
#54

you could always just take away the fire tome


#55

I think you’re missing the point here… agbro.


#56

Not so complicated. I think I can make it

Edit: Since there is an issue about changing RES into MAG, this patch is made to compensate that (using RES bonus to add STR). If you want the original stat bonus, edit the patch with a hex editor at 0x35 (04) and change it into 00. This patch uses 08D80000, 64 byte.

#58

I feel that this is one of those ignorant questions that people roll their eyes at, but anyway:

How hard is it to make new AI, by that I mean… uh. For example: Make enemy dancers work, they dance for the enemy. Also enemy warp/rewarp. I have no idea how difficult or easy it is to do AI so I understand if this is one of those stupid hard things. (Warp is probably hard, as the game would also need to pick somewhere to warp to Though, I could see dance using modified heal AI? Though would the game even check if an enemy can move again after moving… and the game wouldn’t use it very well that way… uhhhhhhhhhhhh, I can see it not working very well, but just throwing it out there? ehehe…)


#59

I don’t know what you meant in your edit. Are you talking about my Res-Replaces-Mag thing for Agro? Does your patch default to the normal stat configuration? Also, please create a new thread just for this patch; it’d help with cataloging all of this and documenting it. (And source code is appreciated as always).


#60

I have no idea about how the enemy AI works. From what I perceive, it’s not something well documented. Though Icecube has managed to work wonders, apparently. But from what I know? Not possible.


#61

Yes. It’s made that way to allow the patch being used in either configuration. The default of the patch is RES to MAG (forget to change them)


#62

@Dancer_A

Hey, I made this. It’s in my ASM dump. Does this suit your needs? (Also, removing this from OP)


#63

@Crazycolorz5
It should, yeah! I’ll check it out asap


#64

i just added a few comments/TODO things in case nobody noticed

can you give me this info? i might just crank it out if i have nothing better to do later


#65

[0x0202E3F8 - Row pointers for unit map (byte per tile with value == byte at +0x0B in unit struct)][1]
[1]:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/336940/Software/Hextator's%20Doc/Media/Games/Reverse%20Engineering/Console/NGBA/Fire%20Emblem/Game%20Doc/7%20-%20Blazing%20Sword/Map%20Data/Notes.txt

The thing is, the first two pointers don’t seem to point to actual rows? I lined up two units in the upper left corner, and they’re the first two entries on the third row… what?

The same thing happens with the last two pointers; it seems to have two rows of buffer for the map or something.

Edit: And on my 35 row high map, there are 40 entries in the row table…
