And to think that I asked just an hour or two ago how close we were to a release.  Anywho, time to fiddle!

Edit:  BLARG!  Still can't run it straight from the start menu!

I get this error message:

Code:
___________________________________________
ERROR in
action number 1
of Create Event
for object obj_editor_sys:

Cannot locate string: title

Edit2:  Darn, still can't use the Marquis class.  Can't wait until the compression tables are fixed for that.

The shortcut to the editor problem has been frustrating me for a long time...

[Version 0.4 Fix 1]  I've also replaced the regular v0.4 link with the fixed version, to verify if have the latest version check the  "Help" > "About" section of the editor, the version should read "Version 0.4 fix 1"

Contains bug fixes:
- Fails to open some ROM files with no error message displayed

First of many bugfixes to come, I bet.  If the last one's any indication, as we find bugs, they'll get fixed.

I only put high priority on program breaking bugs, like not being able to open files or see sprites at all.  For smaller bugs I'll wait to bundle a bunch together before I release a fix version.

Well, that's why we're going to be testing it.  There's not as many things in this one, so I'll be able to test it a bit better.

I do want to check something, though - is there a way to determine which items go in which shop type, or is that hard coded?  It'd be nice if I could test a psynergy shop out, but if I can't fuse the two equipment shops I'm kinda screwed there...

I haven't tested it, but I would think it's based on the item type setting for the item (Value in top-right corner of item editor)

If it's just Weapons for weapons, and the seven or so armor types for armor, and we can't change that... that's gonna suck.  It'll really limit what we can do and test.

Hooray, thanks for the new release Atrius! With the new fix, everything should work very well for us now.

Role: Ah, but the General Shop might work, I think. I will do a quick test with a Psynergy bestowing item later. If that works, then we can make some of the Item Shops into General Shops, being easier than doing it the other way around.

Oh yeah baby, £ me harder.

Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak Adepts stronger.

General shops contain all shop types.  They don't specialize in any type, they generalize instead.  Basically, General means "All of the Above".  Item shops can work in a pinch, but ideally what we'd want to do, if limited to 3 types and the catch all, is to combine the weapon and armor shops.  As I said above, Armor shops very rarely ever contain new artifact armor, and the selection of common stuff is never really big, so it'd be easy to combine... as long as the editor/code lets us.  If it's hard coded and requires an ASM editor, we're SOL.

i just don't understand this two things:
1.- It doesn't open the files when the extensions is in caps: .GBA
2.- when i go to patch it says that only in the english version but i have the english version :S

Fox: I must say... life can be complicated..... when you have question(s) (via email) ... and it seems like they sort of get ignored. :D ; Fun, (And sometimes, a person may respond, and completely not answer the question.... so like... 3-person conversation.) Hahahaha!!
January 15, 2018, 07:26:16 PM
Fox: (path) 1 text=(address) char=(address) free=(address) ; << Well, closer to this... but yeah... even if I do choose to have defaults in the code, I could still use this method for overrides.
January 15, 2018, 07:24:28 PM
Fox: So like (path) 0 text=(address) char=(address) len=(number) ; (path) 1 free=(address) ; Or something. But that's just a quick example.
January 15, 2018, 06:59:14 PM
Fox: Hopefully. I was wanting to make it so you could put in the addresses/etc. as one of the arguments in the path. Hm?
January 15, 2018, 03:37:07 PM
KyleRunner: Nice! I hope you'll add compatibility with others games (GS1, Mario Golf and Tennis) soon.
January 14, 2018, 11:40:09 PM
Fox: Okay. Posted (in Downloads section) an initial cutdown version for now, for my text compressor. Basically to separate the code from my Editor for anyone who wants to mess with it. It only supports GS2, because I still didn't add the addresses/etc. for the other games.
January 14, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
Fox: Okay! Going to need to think how I want it to work. Initial thoughts is maybe have a number of arguments in the filepath thing. And have a number of shortcuts (files) to be used as examples. Assuming there are no problems.
January 14, 2018, 10:38:24 AM
KyleRunner: Well... I'm used to editing text ina a text editor, so... yes! Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2018, 11:38:43 PM
Fox: (Text editor = Text Document like notepad.)
January 13, 2018, 11:38:21 PM
Fox: Would you prefer during the text editing in a text editor? (Like what gstoolkit lets you do?) I could probably make a separate tool or something to compress it.
January 13, 2018, 10:10:02 PM
KyleRunner: Ok. Once I finish my Lost Age translation, I'll try a Mario Golf one. Thanks. (But I'll need help).
January 13, 2018, 10:03:17 PM
Fox: If you want to make it "permanent" (part of a hack), then you'd edit code in the ROM that writes to this location of the IDs you'd want to change. (You can find these locations by using a breakpoint debugger like SDL-H or no$gba.)
January 13, 2018, 10:00:11 PM
Fox: Reload/switch = Recommended to be done through Debug mode/warp menu, ofcourse... since doors seem to appear as if they were disabled? ; 03001238:01 and B+Start to get to warp menu.
January 13, 2018, 09:55:39 PM
Fox: @Kyle Runner = It might be, but you'd have to use the correct addresses for Mario Golf, rather than for GS2 as I have it right now. ; @raijinken = Yes. 02000454 = ID of leader. (Change this and reload/switch room you are in, enjoy.)
January 13, 2018, 02:23:29 PM
raijinken: Hey guys, is it possible to somehow change the lead character on the map? Was wondering. I remember there was a cheat to use Jenna, but what if I wanted Isaac, or Piers?
January 13, 2018, 02:10:03 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, Fox *
January 13, 2018, 02:09:37 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, is your text editor compatible with Mario Golf (GBA)?
January 11, 2018, 08:33:13 PM
Fox: But if it isn't an oversight, I still can't imagine it being that useful.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:24 PM
Fox: part, ofcourse.
