Title: [PSX/PC] Shop Editor - White Chocobo (v0.7b)
Post by: titeguy3 on 2010-03-05 01:27:20
Updated to v0.7b! Alright, LZS decryption is gonna be a tad difficult...

Anyway, this program provides an easy to use GUI for modifying shop data and item prices in ff7! You can add, change or remove items, armor, weapons, or materia to or from any shop in the game, and specify the sale price. There's even a feature to change the Master Materia Price Multiplier. Here's a screenshot:

It's not exactly on par with NFITC1's work, but for my first time dealing with the win32 api, I'm proud of it. I plan on releasing new versions on a fairly regular basis and adding functionality whenever I have the time.

You can download the latest version of the program in .zip format here (http://yama.mmowned.org/WhiteChoco.zip)

Oh, and if anybody would be so kind as to go through and identify and update all of the shop names, and send me your whitechoco.cfg file, that'd be great. This program is confirmed to work in Wine.

Awesomely awesome! I would have done this but I don't like editing the executable directly myself. Too many things can go wrong.

I'll check it out later, but I have two questions:

1. You're obviously not getting the names of the shops from the executable. That's the easiest way to get them all correct. Do you know where the names are? I found them once and I could probably help you find them too. That even contains things like responses like "You have too many" or "not enough gil" and the like. It'd round-off this nicely if you could do that.

2. Are you pulling the item names from a list in the KERNEL.BIN/kernel2.bin or just an internal list to whitechoco.cfg? I can help you with that too if you'd like.

You beat me to the punch on this one, but I'm glad it exists now. Way to go!! :D

1. I don't think the shops have [unique] names at all..past "Item Shop" or "Materia Shop"--the text that appears in the caption when the store is open. I could be wrong, though...I've yet to explore ff7.exe fully. The names are typed into WhiteChoco and saved into whitechoco.cfg.

2. I looked into pulling the names of items from kernel2.bin, but I decided that decrypting kernel2.bin was more than I wanted to have on my plate for the first release. I just compiled a list of all the default names and stuck them in whitechoco.cfg. I tried experimenting with passing it through ficedula's fftext program to save me some trouble, but that doesn't take file compression into account. This is definitely one of my top priorities for future releases, though

Haha thanks! To be honest, for the entirety of the time that I was programming this, I had a fear in the back of my head that you'd release something that did the exact same thing and then some before I could.

I get an error that says: Invalid filesize.

Does this not work with a game that's already modded?

**EDIT**
Nvm, I fixed it. The exe was damaged from when i was trying to apply the 9,999 limit break patch thingy, replaced it and it worked.

Hmm, the game won't run after I modify the shops contents. I'm in Wallmarket at the moment. It might be because of the mod, so I'm going to install an un-modded copy onto my laptop and see what happens.

Did you give ff7.exe execution privileges as shown in the first post? Otherwise windows won't let you run it.

1. I don't think the shops have [unique] names at all..past "Item Shop" or "Materia Shop"--the text that appears in the caption when the store is open. I could be wrong, though...I've yet to explore ff7.exe fully. The names are typed into WhiteChoco and saved into whitechoco.cfg.

Some do, some don't. They're indexed. You can go to most materia shops and they'll say "Materia Shop", but some say other things too like "General Store" or "Vegetable Store". There's an indexed list in the executable at....*dig, dig, dig* 0x005219C8 (5380552 if you're using a 0-based decimal array to keep track of these positions). All that text is in the standard FF7 font so it'll have to be deciphered to be displayed then ciphered to be saved at the same spot. Somewhere in the data at the beginning of each shop is a pointer to the name of the shop. Each name is 20 bytes long. Then the names are followed by responses like "Welcome", "What would you like to buy?" etc.

2. I looked into pulling the names of items from kernel2.bin, but I decided that decrypting kernel2.bin was more than I wanted to have on my plate for the first release. I just compiled a list of all the default names and stuck them in whitechoco.cfg.

This is something WM already does and can be easily converted into something your project uses. I assume you've written it in some form of Visual C++ since it requires cygwin1.dll. I might be wrong, but the code I'm using is still simple.

Haha thanks! To be honest, for the entirety of the time that I was programming this, I had a fear in the back of my head that you'd release something that did the exact same thing and then some before I could.

NP. I've been too busy with real life stuff and attempting to figure out how to get Tiny Bronco up and running. This actually takes a load off my shoulders because I know several people expected me to do this. :D

I did check out your program and I do have commits about it.

#1. I see now why you are giving shops the names you're giving them, but remember that some shops' inventories change after certain Disc changes. The names need to reflect that. Like "XXX Shop (Disc 1)". No, not an adult shop you perverts. :P

#2. Sometimes when I'm trying to load certain shops it'll always give me bad index values. This happens on arbitrary shops at different times. I'll go to a shop and it'll be fine, but when I leave and come back to it it sometimes does that.

Strange... I can't seem to get to the security tab on my ff7.exe properties... So I'm guessin' that would be why I cant open the new exe after I use WhtChoco...

Edit: Ok I've found a way for XP users to get the security tab on the FF7.exe. Stolen from another random forum on google.

Open an Explorer window. Click >Tools >Folder Options >Click the View TAB, and scroll to the bottom of the Advanced settings window, UNCHECK the box for Use simple file sharing [Recommended], click Apply, and you're golden.

However, I've run into a strange snag. I think it may be what NFITC1  was talking about. I'll post a pic to show soon... it had a rather funny description in one of the materia.... xD


Here's the image of what my shop now looks like after trying to edit Full-Cure (which isn't really Full Cure, its now a custom materia) into the shop at costa del sol. Currently I haven't checked any other shops yet, but I'll get to that if needed.

(http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g125/Neo_carnage/Final%20Fantasy%207%20modding/shop.jpg)

Maybe something else to note: When i opened the edited ff7 executable with WhtChoco, I tried to edit the shop i had already edited. and it said "invalid item in slot #, defaulting 0." for every slot, so i redid everything. Now it seems that it will not let me add materia, and if it does, it doesn't do it right. I set it up to add W-item, W-summon, W-magic, and some items like Megalixir, and random consumables. The only things that worked right are the normal items. The materia ended up being Pheonix, Neo Bahamut, and Alexander in game. And then I went to edit the file and got the same message of invalid items in the slots the materia were in... So I'm thinking maybe materia shop editing might have some problems for a bit.

So I did this, but when I open the folder options and go to the view tab, I don't have the 'User Simple File Sharing [Recommended]' option. Is that an XP Pro option? Because I'm on Home.

Only suggestion I can give is go download SP3. It is free from microsoft's site, and I think its part of auto-updates...

Else try this:?

First, your hard drive must be formatted NTFS for this tab to show up.

Second, if you're running XP Pro, you must open Windows Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View and uncheck Use Simple File Sharing.

Third, if you're running XP Home, Simple File Sharing is enforced by default and cannot be disabled.  You must boot the computer into Safe Mode and log in with the Administrator account, in order to see the Security tab.  A work around for XP Home, so that you don't have to enter Safe Mode, can be found here.

WARNING:  Adjusting the permissions on a drive, file or folder can lock even the Administrator account out of that drive/file/folder.  Deny Permissions take precedence over Allow Permissions, regardless of your group membership.  Administrators are members of the User's group, by default.  Uncheck Allow, rather than using Deny.

The work around is actually here (http://www.dougknox.com/xp/tips/xp_home_sectab.htm), not there

Post by: vareal on 2010-03-05 05:15:19
I'm in safe mode under the administrator account, where is the security tab in question?

*edit*

wait a tic, perhaps I should check the here, and not there, lol...

**EDIT**
*sigh* I hate XP home sometimes... That and the links in that site you posted are broken, and I can't seem to find the download, but I'm still searching.
Title: [v0.2b] White Choco Shop Editor by titeguy3
Post by: Immortal Damyn on 2010-03-05 05:27:37
Sorry, didn't check the DL links. Anyway, the security tab should be at the top of the properties window when you right-click>properties.

**EDIT**
oh wait, goddamnit... sorry I'm very tired at the moment. lol. I got it. I was thinking of the 'run as administrator' option in vista/win7.

Just make it so you have full control over the .exe from whatever account you're using to play ff7.

how different? screen cap?

It's not different, I was thinking of something else. Ok, so now I've done all this, and I've tried the program again and FF7 still won't start up after I modified it. I selected the weapon shop in Wallmarket, and selected a random weapon, which happened to be Ragnarok, selected 'Apply Changes' and tried to start it. No go. I'm at a loss here; I've got the Remix patch thing on it, does the program not work with a mod?
Title: [v0.2b] White Choco Shop Editor by titeguy3
Post by: Immortal Damyn on 2010-03-05 05:42:25
Hmm.. does it give you an error, or just refuse to load? Also, are you running it directly from the exe? or something like FF7Music? Also also, make sure it save the changes you made when you said to allow, and make sure it was the right account you told it to allow.
Title: [v0.2b] White Choco Shop Editor by titeguy3
Post by: vareal on 2010-03-05 05:43:22
WAIT!!!! I got it! After I modified the ff7.exe with the white choco shotp editor, I THEN applied the security changes to the .exe and ff7 booted up. Lets see if I can buy the sword now.

**EDIT**

Boom, it worked! Man, that was an ordeal! Thanks for your help and patients Damyn.

NOTE: You have to set the permissions EVERY TIME after you use the Choco Shop Editor and modify the ff7.exe.

Post by: Immortal Damyn on 2010-03-05 05:49:26
Not a problem at all. Just remember what I have taught you here, and you should be ok from now on. At least with this app. Also, keep in mind there seems to be some issues with materia shop editing. So idk if it was just bad luck on my part, or if its an app bug, but if materia doesn't work for you, that might be why.

Post by: vareal on 2010-03-05 06:08:23
Yeah, I just got some weird stuff trying the materia editing. Typhon was the only one that had a normal name and I didn't even put it on the list, lol. Oh well, 2 gil for a cool summon isn't bad. Now, if I can just figure out why the 9999 limit breaking patch won't work for me, I'll be a happy camper.
Title: [v0.2b] White Choco Shop Editor by titeguy3
Post by: Immortal Damyn on 2010-03-05 06:21:38
Well, are you just using that, or are you using the YAMP? Cause I've had troubles with the YAMP when I tried to install the 9999 patch. The ff7.exe was still running for some reason, make sure the ff7.exe isn't running in the processes tab of your task manager.

I don't think you have enough gil. Have you considered an installment plan? ;)

If you modified an already existing materia then it should retain its selling price. If you made a NEW materia I'd expect that to happen. Maybe titeguy needs to allow for the editing of prices Kudistos found all those eons ago.

I've noticed that weapons, items, equipment and materia that you can't normally buy in the game cost 2 gill, usually.

Okay, fixed the materia issue you guys have been having. Everything should work fine.

And yeah, items you can't usually buy are set to 2 gil or so...I'm looking for where to change that in the executable, if I find it, I'll add that in.

The main link in the first post will take you to the new file.

Great. Does this mean I'll won't have to link people to that old thread and give them hex editing tutorials any more? ;D
After I'm done figuring it all out, anyway. So are the prices starting at x523858 in the same order as the item indeces? like...items-->weapons-->armor-->accessories? And if so, where does the materia fit in? at the end?

I see you changed that. So far so good, but you don't need to include a backup of the executable. You can get that anywhere since it is a part of the 1.02 update.

The way I got around the security permissions was to call "fopen(___, "wb")" on a file that already existed. There has to be an existing file there with proper security permissions so windows doesn't give it the cold shoulder. That's why i included a "ff7.exe.bak" with the program, otherwise the first backup created wouldn't have execution privileges. I debated using a 0kb dummy file, but that would cause havok if some unsuspecting user clicked "restore backup" the first time they ran the program.

EDIT: duh, I can put in a check for that...I'll change it to a dummy file.

I'll add stuff to White Choco as I see fit... right now my priorities are:
1) Price Editing
2) Default Character Name Editing
3) Synchronization with kernel2.bin

and if I can get that out of the way I might look into:

4) Limit break data
and
5) PSX version support

Good, to know, I think I'll wait it out til we can get a hold of price editing before I actually start using this though. I have a few things that I would like to appear in a shop or two, but they should cost a boat load of gil, not just a few thousand. Wish i could create like a secret shop somewhere in the game xD. Like place an invisible person in one of the materia caves that sells extremely special materia he/she found.

lol, well "could not load large icon" means that you didn't extract all of the files. there should be two .ico files with the package, and yes, make sure that you're using the 1.02 version of ff7.exe. You can download it anywhere.

Actually, I extracted all the files. And I know the icon is there too. I can see it in the folder where I extracted the archive to. However, when I load, it still says couldn't find large icon.

Eh, it's not too much to worry about for me, its just an icon. The program itself still works as well as it's supposed to.


Edit:
So any progress on a price modifier?

I'd like to use it, but personally only need there to be price editing before I can. Many of the things I want to do to the shops require price changes.

v0.5b has been released, and you can now edit the prices of all items and materia, as well as modify the multiplier for mastered materia prices. Enjoy, and be sure to report any bugs you might encounter so I can fix 'em.

Well, as far as i can tell it works. I only did a minor run though, and added a new materia in a dummied materia slot, and then threw it into the chocobo sages shop for 400 gil. Worked like a charm. Thanks a lot titeguy, this has made my work on a custom difficulty mod  so much more badass. Now if i could just figure out what the shops at the bottom of the list were.... they seem to almost be... dummy shops?

Yeah, it's weird...almost as if they were planning on adding them to the game and never did. Shop 64 sells "Edincoat"s...I don't remember any shop in the game selling that item...

nice program titeguy3, great work, 1 small problem is i get a error everytime i run the program (program still runs fine).
It seems whitechoco_l.ico is corrupt (i found it easy to fix by remaking the ICO from your PNG)

If you have a look at whitechoco_l.ico in a hex editor you will see its a PNG and NOT a ICO file and thats why it doesnt work (well for me anyway)

I see, it's weird because it loads properly for me. I'll try recompiling the .ico file. A better solution would be to figure out how to embed the images into the code so I don't need to outsource to .ico files...

EDIT: I see, I had the large icon compressed in .png format by accident. Oh well, this should be fixed now.

If you want to know how to insert the icon into the EXE it can be done easily. For example here is your EXE with your big icon inserted

Out of interest, how did you write this application?

Also, have you considered adding PSX functionality? I *believe* it would be a case of simply loading and writing from a different offset for different files.

I wrote it in C while learning how to use the Win32 library package (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms632680(VS.85).aspx) from a tutorial I found on the web (http://www.winprog.org/tutorial/simple_window.html).

And yes, PSX functionality is on my list of things to do (along with kernel2.bin synchronization and default character name editing), however I don't have the PSX files myself to use for testing.

Post by: titeguy3 on 2010-03-22 14:53:58
Gr... I've been working on adding PSX functionality to WhiteChoco, but I can't seem to find a string that matches the Master Materia Price Multiplier signature from ff7.exe anywhere in SHOPMENU.MNU.

If anyone knows which file and at which address one can find this data, I'd be really appreciative.

If anyone wants to help me search, search the psx game files (preferably starting with SHOPMENU.MNU) for the value "46", which is 70 in decimal, and try modifying it and seeing if the master materia multiplier changes. Until I find this information, that feature will just have to remain left out of WhiteChoco on the psx side...

5,882,880 bytes exactly. That's odd, you're the first to not have WhiteChoco recognize ff7.exe. I've checked that size time and time again:
(http://img260.imageshack.us/img260/4750/47392014.jpg) (http://img260.imageshack.us/img260/4750/47392014.jpg)

EDIT: It could be a Linux compatibility issue...I'll see what I can do to maximize compatibility... maybe implement a "force open" option if this is a real problem...

Post by: NFITC1 on 2010-03-22 19:51:15
Instead of checking a file's size (or perhaps in addition to) you should check for a known pattern inside the file. For example: 0x0056CB8C begins the text: "C:\FF7\chocobo\". Checking for that string at that position (or at least close by) will likely guarantee that the file is correct.

Done and done. White Choco v0.6b is loose! I've added signature checks just in case the filesize isn't recognized, and added SHOPMENU.MNU support (untested, since I don't actually have the PSX version of the game) minus the master materia price multiplier since I haven't found that data yet...

That definitely works better in C and variants. There are no pointers in BASIC (at least, not simple pointers) so linked lists are very difficult to make.

Yo, you reckon you can make a translation tool for the ff7.exe (not sure if I asked this before)?  For the other text that is in there?  Not for me....but just as a retranslation tool.  The exe is one of the only things which is missing, and there are  a lot of text in there.

Just a thought.  This is a good tool btw.

This is purely academic at this point but is the world map dialog (cid's dialog, cloud's buggy lines) in the exe ?

Do you still have a list of the pointers and to what text they refer to ?  It'd make the process of putting together that part of the program much easier.

Post by: Armorvil on 2010-11-16 21:10:29
I'm in the process of modifying all the shops throughout the game, so I'll be sure to send you my whitechoco.cfg when I'm done ;)

By the way, I have a little request, if I may. There is currently no way of extracting the changes I make inside White Choco, to easily patch a new ff7.exe with my changes. Same thing if I want to turn my mod into a psx-compatible one : I'd have to open shopmenu.mnu, and select the right articles for each shop again, and re-enter the new prices for all items. Needless to say, this is a huge pain (that I had to go through yesterday when I made the patch for my demo, since I had to create a patch from a clean ff7.exe, without the battle menu reconstruction mod etc).

Could an option (that would work the same as "save names", for example) be added, that would save the prices and the shop data in a separate file ? That would help a bunch in duplicating the data from one exe / mnu to another ^^
Whatever the response, I thank and congratulate you for such an awesome tool, anyway :D

EDIT:

You can download here a whitechoco.cfg (http://www.mediafire.com/?6du7e0kg2u5csp1) referencing all shops if you like.

Any ideas?

EDIT : Found a workaround that works *sometimes* :

- You can try loading constantly and it would work, but boring.

- Open White Choco, then click File > Save Changes, go in Prices and go see some things like some items; now try to open a file, it should work. Anyways this worked for me.

Seeing that his last update imdicates he's still struggling with LZS I'd have to say it never got implemented. Since he also wants comparability with PSX he'd have to add KERNEL.BIN support as well for PSX names and such.

answering to my own question and for those, who wants to use white choco with PAL version of FF7.
 1) extract shopmenu.mnu file from CD PAL version of FF7 and open shopmenu.mnu file in hex editor.
 2) then delete addresses 4700 - 470B, must to be deleted 12 of "00" (double zeros)
 3) after this, file size of shopmenu.mnu must be 61 892 and this will allow to open PAL shopmenu.mnu in white choco
 4) open shopmenu.mnu in white choco, edit what you want in game shops and apply changes
 5) after this, open again shopmenu.mnu in hex editor and add (insert) addresses 4700 - 470B, must to be added 12 of "00" (double zeros)
 6) after this, file size of shopmenu.mnu must be 61 904 and then import shopmenu.mnu file to CD PAL version of FF7.
sorry for my english

I think I understand - you're saying the PAL version has twelve empty padding bytes at 0x4700, and that these need to be removed before editing (and reinserted on build).
