mod to adjust chocobo racing prizes
« on: 2018-02-02 17:18:16 »
Is it possible or one already exists?

In my balance mod, I have the precious watch and chocobracelet modified so they increase AP growth, so I have an armour with 4 triple grow slots, and one with 8 double grow slots.

These are rare, but I think they too rare, they can only appear as the rare prize and that prize very rarely spawns on a 1-2 result.

I want to remove stuff like potion as a prize from S class, and make it so either the rare prizes only rotate between a few items, or allow these 2 armours to appear as more common prizes.

I don't know about a mod, but you can do it with Makou Reactor. In the field crcin_1, go to the 'dic' function. At the bottom of its Main script, you'll find the code for adding the race prizes.

EDIT: Wait, I was wrong. Those are just the ones that Ester gives to you after you win several races in the S-class. The regular prizes are in the Cloud function in Script 4.

ok thank you, I will try to find that tool and look for what you said.

I think I am in the right place, loads of reference to labels and some text about accepting GP, but I dont know what to edit, and what the labels are referencing, do you have an idea a way to match the labels to specific prizes?

Ok I found you can expand the tree, which shows more of what is going on, but I think this script is after the race has done, not the script that runs on the chocobo selection screen pre race?

Yep, that's for receiving the prizes after the race, although it doesn't seem to differentiate between the various race classes. Not really sure where that information is stored... The pre-race screen is part of the minigame I think (it's not a field file and therefore cannot be edited with Makou Reactor).

yeah so I can do things like swap out what the game displays as a potion in the mini game screen for say a counter materia.  Its something.    This solution would show the original prize on the race screen, but the new prize on the results dialogue.
