In that case it looks like whatever code they originally used for compressing the files was marginally less efficient, nothing to worry about.

The original version probably had extra padding between the sections, have you tried diffing the binaries to see where the differences are?

Here's a fork with a few small fixes, confirmed working

I haven't included a build config yet or include dependencies, will get round to it.

Thanks for the code aali.

I made a few teensy changes to get it running on win 10 with the latest versions of glew, libpng, and zlib, I'll try and set up a fork at some point if others want to poke around. Currently trying to compile against win 7 for DLPB as the win 10 version crashes.

Credo di poterlo aiutare. Ho usato spesso la Hex_Documentation che DLPB aveva pubblicato per modificare le finestre a mio piacimento per tradurre Beacause in italiano.

Ah ottimo, beh allora è in buone mani, non che non lo sapessi già.

E a proposito... tu parli italiano? Cioè seriamente? Com'è possibile che seguendo il lavoro di DLPB per anni per cercare di tradurlo non me ne sia mai accorto?

Pensavo di avertelo già accennato, si vede di no ::)

Se avete bisogno di una mano fatemi sapere.

Sorry for the expired links, updated the first post.

From another perspective, there are those three female palette swap enemies, any one of which would have been a better match for Baba Yaga than this...thing. I just don't buy it. Why go to the effort of obscuring both the name and the appearance to a degree where no-one can actually get the reference? It makes no sense.

I'm just hesitant to attach meaning to something with no clear visual evidence. We changed "Foulander" because it looks like a Rangda, Jiggy had hints to Bowie, and so on. This looks like...I have no idea, but it doesn't look remotely like an old crone.

I'd be wary about trying to attach any meaning to this one, even Baba...if they were going for Baba Yaga it doesn't look anything like one. FF wiki can't make head or tail of it either, calling it one of the most obscure names in the series. Ultimania has no clues either, it just looks like syllable soup like so many others.

Ts can only process the characters you give it in the charMap in ffstring.cpp, because those are the only ones available in the font.

As we've been trying to tell you all week, if you want Vietnamese you'll need to both patch the character map, and the font. How ts processes the characters has got nothing to do with it, seriously just try replacing one of the characters in charMap with "ọ", and try using ọ in one of the text files, it simply works, I just tried. It still won't show up in the game until you replace the same character in the font.

but in c++ language, string type only can store ascii.
I think even i can put vietnamese into flevel file, there is no way to force ff7 system recognize new symbol.
I should accept that from beginning :( i have spent two week for nothing.

C++ doesn't care what you put in a standard string, it's a glorified vector, the encoding of the characters that take up the bytes of a string is no concern.

You haven't yet grasped that ffvii has its own text encoding, touphscript handles converting between utf8 and the ffvii format.

It absolutely does read utf8 characters otherwise it simply wouldn't work. I'm guessing your issue is your trying to get it to read characters that aren't in the character table.

The text id reference for text ops in the field script only takes up a single byte, hence the 255 limitation. You'll need to rewrite all of the text opcodes to solve this.

I'm not sure you've understood, but I'll try again:
-The character table in FFVII is fixed at 256 characters, some of these cannot be modified because they are expanded to things like characters names
-You can easily replace most of the characters in the table with whatever utf8 character you like, it doesn't matter whether it occupies 1, 2, 3, or 4 bytes. These will be used by touphscript when scanning text to map a character to FFVII's single byte encoding.
-The Japanese version of FFVII had multiple font tables, these were selected using a 2-byte sequence, the PC version may still retain this functionality
-You might be able to squeeze the Vietnamese alphabet, digits, and punctuation into the table by replacing the characters you don't need, the total number of user characters available in the table are about 210, otherwise you'll need multiple tables like Japanese

N.b.: ASCII is a 1-byte encoding, in fact it can be packed into 7 bits; utf8 is a variable width encoding, from 1-4 bytes, but this has nothing to do with editing the character table in touphscript.

If it were only a few characters all you need to do is edit ffstring.cpp, which has the font table (which is in utf8), but due to the number of characters you need for Vietnamese one table is not enough.

The source distribution doesn't contain a compiled resource file. As for the characters, like I said before you're going to first need to find out if the PC version of FF7 still supports multiple font tables, otherwise it's a hopeless endeavour for Vietnamese unless you want to go into the assembly and lose your mind like DLPB.

You've compiled the resource file with the 32 bit version of windres.

I don't use VS so I'm not sure I can help, but why are you linking libz.a and not zlib1.dll?

« on: 2017-09-22 20:13:11 »
download this, extract the x64 dll and rename it to zlib1.dll, and put it in the same folder as touphscript source. Also please use the makefile to compile, i.e. run mingw32-make in the source directory.

If ts can't find the files by using the registry values you'll need to use the config file to override them, check the paths in touphscript.ini

libz is included with mingw-w64, I'll try and compile when I get back home just to make sure nothing has broken in the years since ts was released.

I can see two issues there, you don't have libz installed, and you're using an ancient version of mingw, try this it should fix both errors

I doubt it's going to be possible without restoring the Japanese multiple font tables (although the code to do so may already be in the PC version), just the uppercase and lowercase vowels with diacritics in Vietnamese would need 144 different characters as FFVII doesn't support combinational diacritics.

Amazing work! If you'd accept a tiny bit of criticism, it looks like you hand-drew the pagoda floor numerals (壱、弐、参、四、伍) but they don't look authentic, have you considered using a semi-cursive font instead?
