Be sure epsxe is not running when you use Memoria. I guess that may cause the bug.
Or maybe you don't have the rights to open the file (epsxe000.mcr) ? You would need to run Memoria as administrator (right-click on the program should display that option).

Hi guys.  :)
Since FFIX is my favourite Final Fantasy, i've found this tool very interesting. I'm trying it out now.
Anyway, i was wondering if i can replace card images, or maybe add more than 100 cards (but seems to me difficult).
I have made a lot of card images (about 50 at the time) from FFIX monsters, characters and such, which are not featured ingame, (also from FFX and other FF) and i would try to fit them ingame!
If someone think this is possible, please let me know answering here.
If someone is interested to see how my cards looks, just ask me and i will upload them on my Deviantart page as soon as i can.


(and sorry for my english)

Hi Blankamarant.

As far as I know, it hasn't been tried yet to replace the card images. Zidane_2 made a tool that extracts some images from the game but cannot replace them inside. Plus, I'm not sure cards have the "TIM" data format (the format Zidane_2's tool can extract).

About possibilities, It should be quiet doable to replace images but it'd be really hard to create new cards.

Sorry but, i've said that i already have made over 50 cards! why you say it's difficult to make cards?
you are talking about scripting?
EDIT: ops sorry i've just figured out that you was talking about the code

I'm talking about having (for instance) a card menu with more than 100 slots for more than 100 different card types.

Thank you for this great tool. Nice to see that FF9 gets some attention too.
I was playing around with the tool and noticed in the card section that card type "A" is missing in the drop-down list. I've only read about there being A-type cards and I've never actually seen one myself so maybe M,P,X are the only available types.

You are right. I didn't know that as I've never seen one. But according to the ff wiki it seems type 'A' exists.

EDIT: I uploaded a new release for the with the card type A included. Figured it was worth it. 0.5.1b available in op.

Some non-interesting data :

Alleyway Jack's Tetra Master tutorial works the same way as Mogster's tutorial. The value decreases as you read an entry.

There you go :

Alleyway Jack's Tetra Master tutorial

These adresses is about if you read or not the tutorial ("New!" icon).
The values are set to FF by default, and they decrease by the amount associated.
8007B30F
GameShark 3007B0C4 :
01 : How do play the card game ?
02 : How does the card game proceed ?
04 : What's a card battle ?
08 : What's a combo ?
10 : What's a perfect ?
20 : What's a collector level ?
40 : Can we try a game ?
80 : How do play the card game ? this value seems to be used either before or at the same time as 01

I'm not sure this address is on the savemap though...

EDIT : Mitten the Kitten Sidequest

Ok, I'm not 100% sure on how it works.

Gameshark 3007B0C1 :
00 : Quest not started
01 : Quest accepted
02 : Mitten spotted (running away)
03 : Mitten captured
04 : Vivi rewarded (received Bomb Card)

EDIT 2 : Mognet Sidequest

Gameshark 3007B317 :
80 : Being told about Mognet

Gameshark 8007B307 :
08 : Accept letter from Kupo to Monty

Gameshark 3007B2FA = 01
Gameshark 3007B2FB = 04
=> "You have a letter from Kupo to Monty"

EDIT 3 :

Gameshark 3007B0CA
+02 => Queen Brahne gave you a Moonstone
+04 => Talk to Blutzen and Kohel

EDIT 4 :
Gameshark 3007B30F
+10 => Read letter from Kupo to Mosh (about Jump Rope)

EDIT 5 :
Gameshark 3007B0D1
Pluto Knight Quest
01 : Mullenkedheim
02 : Haagen
04 : Weimar
08 : Breireicht
10 : Dojebon
20 : Laudo
40 : Blutzen (already input as you start the quest)
80 : Kohel (already input as you start the quest)
Gameshark 3007B0D0 = 01 => Blank (Knight of Pluto)

ATTN gjoerulv :

If you're interested into adding an option for Tetra Master that will max cards and their stats, I made a 600 lines GS code.

US version : http://aladore3viii4.free.fr/files/FF9/FF9%20-%20Tetra%20Master%20AR%20-%202%20-%20US.txt

FR version : http://aladore3viii4.free.fr/files/FF9/FF9%20-%20Tetra%20Master%20AR%20-%202.txt

This gives the legit. maximum stats cards. Arrow distribution is aiming for 1700 pts so they're all different, the cards with the more combined stats having the more arrows.

@aladore384
Thanks. Lazy as I am didn't bother figuring out how the game calculated the score (I started research, but didn't finish). At first I assumed maxed out stats and arrows would max out the score.

Unique card : 10 pts
Unique arrow set : 5 pts
Attack type X : 1 pts. Attack type A : 1 more pts for a total of 2 pts.
Total per card : 17 pts max

17*100 = 1,700 pts - max collector rank.

As for the Attack, Physical Defence, Magical Defence they provide no pts for the collector rank. However each card's stats can be improved and each card has its own limits (or maximum stats).

Rebirth Flame provided a list with 2 small errors (decimal values are given in the parentheses right after the displayed value by the game) :

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/197338-final-fantasy-ix/56828459#10

First error was Sahagin's max stats that are corrected on post #13 and goes like this : Attack 25, PDefence 18, MDefence 4.

Second error was Ozma's original (basic) type attack which is not M as Rebirth listed it but rather P as corrected by espritduo who provided us with a full corrected list (values are listed in decimal) :

I cant't recall if Vivi's trance is on hold until then. In any case, certain editing will make the game prone to crashes/soflocks etc. Giving Vivi trance early might just do that. Certain early battles are very scripted and trance may interfere with some scripts.

Perhaps I need to work on the "max all" function to prevent issues like these, yes.

It should be safe. I have tested it multiple times. As for the status bits, read the help. It is explained there.

Yeah, that is not necessarily a bug in the program. If you mess around enough with the save file, the game may not like it. Do you remember what you edited?

You mean Freya? She is the only one that can jump. And the jump mechanics doesn't have anything to do with the items or cards I think. Maxing the stats and magic stones is not a good idea depending on how far into the game you are. Not all characters have all magic stones for instance. Trance Jump may get values the game can't handle. Again, cheating like this can confuse the game. it's not a bug in the editor.
