Really? I've been using Doomtrain for FFVIII Steam version some days already and my mods had been working so far, except for two...

1 - When I try to modify the GF's abilities order it got bugged in-game, some were empty and others wasnt the one I changed in Doomtrain.
2 - I dont know whats going on, but since I've changed the ATK Power from Zell's Duel, his limit break were bugging the game, making the enemy receive multiple hits nonstop, being impossible to continue the gameplay, forcing to alt+F4.

Does someone know why these things are happening? The rest of the mods worked just fine. (characters stats growth and exp to level, magics atk power, others limit break atk power, enemies abilities power...)

it is you just need to use Deling FF8 Field Editor to extract the file from Final Fantasy VIII\Data\lang-en\main.fs

also you might aswell try out Cactilio another great tool for FF8 found on these forums :)
it's used to modify the battle.out which is found inside Final Fantasy VIII\Data\lang-en\battle.fs

and back up your files before you start... :)

also if this sounds like too much... maybe have a look at my first attempt at modifying both of those :)
http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=18301.0
started just a few days ago, i've already done so much :) loving these tools :)
for eg lvled up bosses past their previous max lvl... adjusted the attack power / magic powers for almost everything...
since i'm a fan of the Hard_Mode_Launcher for FF8... my mods work alongside that + complement it imo...
i also made some changes to CERBERUS the GF since he is made useless when you use the hard mode ... since double/triple are broken by the unlimited magic mod i guess... now with my mod Cerberus Casts: Haste + Angel Wing + Regen on all party members...
this is like Rinoa's Angel Wing in that it makes the character BERSERK except it's RANDOM MAGIC ATTACKS BASED ON THEIR STOCK AND DOUBLE DAMAGE...

I also broke the DMG LIMITS for most big moves in the game... Limits / High end Magic / GF's other then Bahumut/Eden
also gave the other GF's better stats at higher levels to try to make them less useless, and made EDEN do a less DMG in fact...

also Doomtrain is great for trying out weird stuff... like Making Zell Perform LIONHEART :P Despite having no Sword / Gunblade LOL
https://nofile.io/f/yQ6nAcHa3Pw/2018-07-01+04_05_51-FINAL+FANTASY+VIII.jpg

basically you can easily change the "button" for something like "doom" "devour" etc to Cast something else... and not limited to just magic obv...
Also managed to make RINOA perform Seifer's Limit Break... FIRE CROSS... her animation is fun to watch, and her weapon reacts as his would pretty much...

Hi guys, I have a problem with the Break Damage Limit tag for Zell's finishers. It's not working. I have no problem with Squall, Irvine or Quistis. Just Zell. Could you please look at it to see if there's a problem with the code ? Or maybe tell me where I can find it by hexedit ? Thanks !

Hi
How would i go about changing the junction stat boosts for magic, in the ff8 new threat mod having 1 stock of a spell has the same effect as having 100, any help on how i could make this happen?
thanks  :)

im asking please someone if you would be so kind as to take some time an write a step by step on how to extract the file, open with doomtrain ,then put file back with whatever. please please its the magic draw i really wanna play with.

No problems figured it out, being a dumbass

Thanks :). Good luck with your mod, hopefully it'll be easier to do what you want with Doomtrain.

can you share with us the hexadecimal digits to permanently set the effect of the item "hero"? it the one that make you invincible, basically it would be like what you did with the permanent limit brake, or if it is easier , implement something to permanently active it trough this program

also , the kernel.bin contain the data that don't allow us to directly control odin and ghilgamesh ? or those data are in the exe along with the percentage data that don't allow us to decide what finisher squall should use ?

The drawable magic isn't in kernel. see the ifrit tool.
There is only one kernel.bin
after you extract the file from the fs archive you have to remove it to add the new one back in. You basically take the steps to unpack them and do it in reverse from there.

There's a wiki on doomtrain that lists almost everything in the kernel that they know about.

Kernel Weapons list which finishers squall can trigger. But it's percent i think is fixed. Googling it led to like 25% per finisher but on weapons that have fewer than 4 get the extra 25% added to the most powerful. so when the weapon has all 4 unlocked it's 25% for each. But if you have only 2 it's 25% and 75%. I donno if this is right I can code but can't reverse anything to confirm. But google.com is works wonders.

Yeah it's true for Squall Finisher. Also in Doomtrain you can enable/disable which Finisher you want\don't want with Squall Gunblade but then when doing renzokuken in battle it will crash. I already try it with FF8R.

@miruss89 @Sebanisu so maybe as long as there are at least two finishers the game shouldn't crash, but if those percentages are written in the kernel, they they could be manipulated in order to give for example 1% for the first three finishers and 97% to the lion heart, also what about the positive statuses, is there something in the kernel file that could allow to modify the auto-abilities? for example: we have auto-reflect, so i would modify that and substitute the effect of reflex with the invincibility effect (you know, when you become transparent and fully invincible)

just in case i will explain myself better: if in the kernel.bin there are the datas about the auto-abilities such as auto-reflex , then i would like to change the equipped magic in that auto ability , and substitute the effect of reflex with the effect of invincibility (when the character become transparent)

the invincibility effect is also called peerless

actually i've tried. But kernel.bin didn't allow for something like that. I think all the percentage calculation for renzokuken finisher is hardcoded in the .exe. But you can do something like this:
For each Renzokuken Finisher such as Rough Divide, Fated Circle and Blasting Zone, change the magic id to Lion Heart, but don't forget to change the Hit Count, Target Info and Attack Flag parameters box to match the original Lion Heart Finisher. So when your getting Renzokuken Finisher in game, it should be Lion Heart for all the finisher except that maybe the old finisher names still not change.

And in kernel.bin you can't put Invincibility into Abilities Junction. But you can edit Mad Rush abilities to trigger Invincibility/Aura. So solved.

true, it can be a good solution to solve the problem of the finishers , as for the invincibility effect, it is just another positive status like the others so it has to be possible to do that, but if it isn't possible to change the auto-magics with the kernel.bin then it mean that the data of the auto-magics are writed somewere else, so what file contain those datas ? also i hope that by telling that i want to set invincibility as something permanent i am not hitting anyone's sensibility lol
