I would like to remove the misses from Tifa's slots, I am awful at them and this ends up making Tifa's limits feel like crap compared to others. I've seen this feature in other mod packs but those either kill steam integration (which I'd like to keep), make it too powerful (make the entire slots Yeah when I just want to replace the Miss with Hit) or come bundled with other mandatory mods I don't want to use.

I've been digging through the files I've found ways to edit (battle, kernel, field) but can't find where these values are stored.

It's in the exe. I found it once and would have to dig it back out. I remember it was 0 for miss, 1 for hit and 2 for "yeah". I'll be able to find it later if you can wait a few hours, possibly tomorrow morning.

Found it in the PC version. The values look like this:

Code: [Select]
1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
1, 0, 2, 2, 2, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1, 1, 0, 2, 2, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
1, 1, 1, 0, 2, 2, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1

This sequence controls each slot reel of the various limit levels. There are actually reels for 1-3, 2-3 and 3-3 even though there are no such limit actions. You can find this using a hex editor beginning at 0x51D4D0 in the '98 US 1.02 version of the exe. Any other version would have this array near that address. The reels can be changed to whatever you want.

If you're asking about the PSX version (which I don't know why you would since you could just use a cheat device for this purpose) then I can't help you.

Nice, thanks for the info NFITC1. All Yeah was too OP, but making them Hit should be a nice remedy to Miss.

Yeah, it's clear from save map that they once intended there to be 3 limits per level.

10 per character just seems a little much. Either the HP divisor would have to be increased each level or they'd all have to be weaker.
I barely ever see any of them as it is other than to meet the requirements for the 4-1 limit. :)

Thank you for this, it was at exactly the address you specified for the Steam version, incredibly easy to edit in seconds.
