Hello myst6re I have a question about your program...
I edited the font in my language in font manager (Arabic.tex & Arabic.tdw)
in Deling-0.9b and then rename Arabic.tex to sysfnt.tex & Arabic.tdw to sysfnt.tdw and replace the file sysfnt.tex in menu.fs & sysfnt.tdw in main.fs
But I don't know how to edit the file sysfld00 & sysfld01 & sysfnt00
Using photoshop BMP or PNG Or etc... and replace them again in tex...!
is there a tool to convert tex to tdw to edit the font in font manager not on photoshop and then convert them in tex to replace them in menu.fs
c:\ff8\data\eng\menu\hires\ ...
1- sysfld00.tex
2- sysfld01.tex
3- sysfnt00.tex

As I know, there is no tool to edit high res font files like Deling does with low res.

How do you use this editor to edit the encounter rates on the world map?

Deling does not edit world map things, sorry

indeed it makes farming crafting and level+junction game to make your characters strong by doing a special monsters encounter instead of random vanilla worldmap monsters we would like to do something like the island closest to heaven and hell concept

Thanks, does that mean there is no tool to edit world map encounters at the moment?

Field map encounters : Deling just shows formations, do all formations have an equal chance of appearing? The game doesn't seem to do that (e.g. Elnoyles and Iron Giants are extremely rare in Estahr city after the lunar cry, while imps, turtapods and toramas are really common). Is there a way to edit the formations themselves, to change which enemies are in the formations?

Hello myst6re I have a question for you Can Deling (0.9.1b) read any character when I write on Edit text Final Fantasy 8
from left to right like HadesWorkshop program for Final Fantasy 9
I need it because I want to edit (New) Character without drawing any letters
I can write Arabic on HadesWorkshop for FF9 on Edit text using
Tool: Reverse Text Generator (from left to right)

Hi, i just found this PC/PSX editor, and it looks to be exactly what i would need, but there's things i'm unable to do.

I play French version of FF8 on PSX. I load the .bin file of the second CD of the game, because there's some things i would like to fix in the dialogues. I found that to change the text, i can only change characters one by one, not like a text editor. So i have to click on "Caractères spéciaux" (special characters), and a small windows with keys appear, but i can only enter one letter and that small windows close itself, then i have to open it again to enter another letter (one by one). I guess it is normal that i have to enter one by one all characters? Or maybe there's a faster way to do it?

After changing the sentence, i want to save the changes, but the save option is gray, i can't click on it. However i found that i can extract, but the only thing i'm able to extract is a small file of about 2ko of size. I can't find how to save the changes to the .bin file of the CD.

Any help would be appreciate :)

Since years i want to fix things in the French version because it contain many errors. I have 0 knowledge about C# and other way to create patch for games, so thanks for making this tool, it will get really useful, i just need to know how to save the changes and i'm going to finally be able to fix FF8.

can this tool actually edit anything? cuz i cant find any field bin files on pc ff8 and psx iso are read-only. if someone has a CLEAN field bin that loads with this can someone pm me a link pls

btw i was looking around and old ff8 cannot be obtainable anymore. soo any updates to these tools or place dl each file aka field.fs or field.bin?

ive looked around and there is no guide on how to use this tool or obtain the files needed....

You should be able to just open the files of the Steam version directly: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VIII\Data\lang-en

In lang-en (differs if you have a different language installed), the .fs archives can be opened directly with Deling (no unpacking, etc. necessary). Deling can edit the field.fs which should contain all the field screens; when opening the others like Battle.fs it can handle archive stuff like extracting/replacing/removing files.
