FF8 Tools / [PSX/PC] Dialogs Editor - Cactuar (0.5a)
« on: 2009-09-03 13:27:25 »

Cactuar is a simple editor of ff8 .msd files.
Backup your files first!!

This project is discontinued!! I'm no longer programming with VB.NET.
I'm currently programming with C#, yeah I know I can just convert to C# and continue it, but I don't feel like it.
I have some other issues at hand, if I get some requests for updates, MAYBE I'll convert it and improve it.



Cactuar - Release Date: November 07 2009

Required: .NET Framework 3.5

Hey guys, I'm trying to write a program (FF related - I'm not getting into details) and I've been trying so many ways to decode FF texts to ASC. I had success in decoding FF text to ASC but I can't seem to decode ASC back to FF text. There are so many issues... I'm wondering if someone can enlighten this.
Here's basically what my code does:

This one works FF to ASC ...
Code: [Select]
'tmpbytes() as byte array that already read through the file

For i = 0 To tmpbytes.Length - 1
                sTmp &= FF2ASC(tmpbytes(i))

Private Function FF2ASC(ByVal b As Byte) As String

        Select Case Hex(b)
            Case "0"
                Return Environment.NewLine & "[END DIALOG]" & Environment.NewLine
            Case "1"
                Return Environment.NewLine & "[NEW WINDOW]" & Environment.NewLine
            Case "2"
                Return Environment.NewLine
            Case "20"
                Return " "
            Case "21"
                Return "0"
            Case "22"
                Return "1"
            Case ....

but i haven't come with a way to encode back to FF'ish' text

Tried this one recently but didn't worked:

Code: [Select]
'These tables are type string() defined at form load
        FF_table(65) = "21"
        FF_table(66) = "22"
        FF_table(67) = "23"
        FF_table(68) = "24"
        FF_table(69) = "25"
        FF_table(70) = "26"
        FF_table(71) = "27"
ASC_table(65) = "0"
        ASC_table(66) = "1"
        ASC_table(67) = "2"
        ASC_table(68) = "3"
        ASC_table(69) = "4"
        ASC_table(70) = "5"
        ASC_table(71) = "6"

'then it comes the function

Private Function Encoding(ByVal str As String, ByVal Method As String) As String

        Select Case Method
            Case "FF"
                For i = 0 To FF_table.Length - 1
                    str = str.Replace(ASC_table(i), FF_table(i))
                Return str
            Case "ASC"
                For i = 0 To FF_table.Length - 1
                    str = str.Replace(FF_table(i), ASC_table(i))
                Return str
        End Select

    End Function

 :-( Can someone explain the method that u guys did in ur progs?

Scripting and Reverse Engineering / Resizing Windows?
« on: 2008-09-24 13:19:40 »
OK the thing is.... i need to resize the small window at shop menu... the one that contains the text "Buy  Sell   Exit"
I managed to do this in psx version messing up with the shop.mnu file in hex editor
But I need to do it with the pc version.. and we all know that the menu files were coded into the .exe but i can't see to find it where to do it...
I need to do this because I'm translating and it didn't look good using abbreviation forms of  'buy' 'sell' and 'exit' in my language...
Then the texts need more space... also i would need to change the selection icon placement to fit the selections...
Remembering... i know where the texts are... i need to deal with the window size and selection icon placement...

Hope someone can help me with this...  :?
