Troubleshooting / No room for text in FF8.exe
« on: 2020-04-25 22:40:27 »
There are no problems with editing texts in FF8 menus (mngrp.bin, namedic.bin etc, areames.dc1), I simply edit strings and pointers to them, no problems with limited space.
At 874B58 of FF8.exe (2013) there text data for triple triad game, but right after it there is another file, can't overwrite that.
So what I'm supposed to do? How to fit larger data?
Sorry for noobish question, I'm not an expert at this sort of things.  :-(

Support / Stretched Triple Triad textures
« on: 2020-02-08 15:09:06 »
While editing FF8 textures found out that text for messages during the game stretches ~ 15% vertically and shrinks ~ 10% horizontally in comparison to the corresponding .tim file:

As far as I know this behavior spreads throughout all versions of the game. I'm actually pretty puzzled, is this a bug or it's supposed to be like this? The workaround I use for now is just stretch and shrink text accordingly, but I find it's rather crude.

I'm currently translating FF8 and found that text and graphics from triple triad game stored inside the main executable. I'm curious about how Steam would behave if I edit executables from 2013 and 2019 versions of the game.

Troubleshooting / FF7 Music problem
« on: 2010-04-17 20:22:23 »
Windows 7, 32-bit.
I downloaded 1.51 FF7 Music and an older version, with ff7music.ini. I downloaded in_mp3.dll, out_wav.dll. Created a folder with ff7 folder ficedula, put 1.51 in it (and ff7music.ini). Create music folder in a ficedula folder, put back music files of remastered ost by Final Fantim CD1. Renamed them. The game is still no music (I deleted the music files from midi.lgp)

Sorry for my english. Maybe I must download all cd's of OST?
