SOLVED: FF8 Battle Hardcore Patch crash the game
« on: 2011-03-20 13:43:02 »
Colly's battle hardcore patch makes my game crash... Let me explain :

I applied the Ruby Medium Diffuculty (I made a backup of my battle.fs before) and copied the battle.fs each time so I've got backup of them. I used batch files from there to change the diffuculty... Then I took a savegame and go to beat a boss. Then the game crash with the "Oops, something very bad ........" message from Aali's driver. Here's my APP.LOG just in case :

Any idea?

EDIT : Ok, resolved my problem by reinstalling the game... I don't know how to change these without using the prog... I guess I've got no choice :(

Unfortunately, this patch is not compatible with the French version, English only. If you'll help me, the next version will be compatible. :)

Not compatible with the French version? So far I haven't run into any issue with this mod, playing on a French game myself... Vgr255, could you tell me what boss it is, so that I could double-check?

No, this isn't any boss, any BATTLE makes the game crash. Anyway, sent the files to Colly by PM as requested.

If I understand correctly, you are not using Colly's installer to switch difficulties, you are using some batch process? Are you sure that's not what is causing your problem? Do you get the same crash using Colly's installer only?

It does, but I assume we aren't supposed to get such an error while doing that... It is shorter to change the difficulties when using batch files, too.

I don't know... Does your batch process care about battle.fi in addition to battle.fs?
