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.

Fox: Yeah, this forum is more dead than ever before.  February and April have 0 new topics. (All other months prior have more.) And March has lowest number of new posts. (It'd be dumb to count the very first month this site was created.)
April 25, 2018, 09:02:13 PM
Fox: Yes. The best tool is a hex editor. Well.... VBA, VBA-SDL-H, no$gba Debugger, GBATEK, and my documentation.... to use these to learn how the code/data works. Best method because it maximizes your editing ability... and then there is my program gsmagic that I was working on. Still in its early stages, though. (Even after year(s).)
