[REL] FF8Launcher 1.4
« on: 2009-07-27 08:15:51 »
Download: FF8Launcher 1.4

FF8Launcher (formerly known as "Plug-in Manager") is a simple application which manages the use of various add-ons created by myself and the Final Fantasy VIII community.

Installation:

  • 1. Extract FF8Launcher.exe and the Add-on folder to your Final Fantasy VIII directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Square Soft, Inc\Final Fantasy VIII).
  • 2. Extract msvcr100.dll to your system32 directory (e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32) or your Final Fantasy VIII directory.
Interface:

  • Start Game - Starts FF8.exe with the selected add-on(s).
  • Re\De\Select All - Re\De\Selects all items in the list.
Using magixts' DirectX 6 hook is possible with some common sense (though I would recommend Aali's graphics driver).

Instructions:

  • 1. Place dx_hook.dll and config.cfg in the Add-on directory.
  • 2. Change the settings in config.cfg with Notepad.
Note: The 8-bit Paletted Textures can be changed from 0 to 1 (off/on) and the Custom Resolutions can be changed from 0 to 20 (640x480 to 2560x1920).

List of Add-ons:

Note: The Hard add-on will decrease the player's melee damage by a factor of 1.5, increase the level of enemies by a factor of 1.1, and increase the melee damage of enemies by a factor of 1.1; this does not effect magic damage. PLEASE GIVE ME FEEDBACK AND REPORT ANY ERRORS!

OLD STUFF
Download: Final Fantasy VIII 1.2 English
Download: Final Fantasy VIII 1.2 English (NVIDIA)
Download: Final Fantasy VIII 1.0 Spanish (NVIDIA)

For those of you that did not understand how to utilize the information in my previous thread, I have made a simple program to do it for you.

Multipatcher must be in the same directory as FF8.exe!

Features:

- Change the damage cap to 65,535.
- Change the HP cap to 32,767.

To run the application you must open cmd.exe, navigate to your Final Fantasy VIII directory, and run the program with the appropriate arguments.

Arguments:

-all - Apply all the patches at once.
-damage - Apply only the damage patch.
-hp - Apply only the hp patch.

Example:

C:\Documents and Settings\User>cd "C:\Program Files\Square Soft, Inc\Final Fantasy VIII"
C:\Program Files\Square Soft, Inc\Final Fantasy VIII>multipatcher -all

I strongly suggest making a copy of your original FF8.exe before applying these changes.

I imagine a strength capped Squall could unleash a potent frenzy with Lionheart.  :evil:

great work Phun. i just had a look at this and its great. but i needed the geforce version so i looked at your code and found the same points (i mean they are at different addresses but its the same part of the code) on the geforce EXE and it seems to work alright (i havent tested it fully yet but i quickly ran it and it seems to work). Also i think i will make a loader for this since i dislike patching my EXE (for my personal use i am already making one but dont worry i wont release it publicly)

Squall would look at Clouds hair and be like "Man, why didn't square give me spiky hair a materia holes......

One thing I would love to see is a Cloud model instead of Squall, and a Buster Sword/Ultima Wep instead of his normal gunblade/lion heart.

Edit: Anybody know what the name of the program is to take videos? I forgot the name  :-(

If you care to upload the FF8.exe I'd be more than happy to introduce a Spanish version.

What is the changes from 1.1 to 1.2 ?

I updated the code, that's all.

While you're at it, the level limit should be upped to 255 too. Although that might be more difficult since all the enemies are based on your level.

I like the idea of the magic not decreasing. I always thought that was stupid to junction consumable magics and make it influence your stats and things. I don't think items should not decrease in quantity, but remain consumable.
