Hello Sega.
Could you tell me what program you used to make extracting 1 or 99 spells the same? I like to mess around with the FF VII programs, but I have no idea about the FF VIII ones, however I want to play FF VIII again, but the issue of using magic weakening me pulls me back and I really like your idea, however I'm Spanish and I can't play your mod like I did in FF VII because of the language, so even if I have to play FF VIII I would like to edit the extraction theme, thank you very much.

Sega Chief

This was done in assembly rather than with a tool, which means either using a hex editor on the FF8.EXE or injecting hex script using something like Roses & Wines (which modifies the FF8.EXE at runtime). The issue may be that the spanish FF8.EXE has different offsets to the english FF8.EXE and I don't know what the differences in offsets are I'm afraid.

The hex addresses and the changes needed to be made for the english exe were:
#HP
963CB = B3 64 90 90 90 90 90

#Primary Stats
966E5 = B2 64 90 90 90 90 90

#Secondary Stats
96788 = B2 64 90 90 90 90 90

#Elemental Attack
969D1 = B0 64 90 90 90 90 90

#Elemental Defence
96AAE = B1 64 90 90 90 90 90

#Status Attack
96BC1 = B0 64 90 90 90 90 90

#Status Defence
96C9D = B1 64 90 90 90 90 90
(Credit to JWP for these)

If you're lucky these may be at the same offsets in the spanish exe. Sorry I couldn't be more help. As for what hex editor to use, I personally use something called XVI32 hex editor, but there's likely other free hex editors out there.

Ok, thank you very much, I'll try if it works. The times that I have compared it has been in the Steam version of Final Fantasy VII and the .exe (Spanish and English) usually coincide. Let's see if I'm lucky. I usually use HxD. I don't know if it will be very good, but when I have had to play something from FF VII it has been worth it.

oh! I almost forgot, is this all for the regular Steam version or the remaster? I find it confusing that there are two versions of a game for the same platform...

Ok, I read the post a bit to see if anyone had asked. FF VIII base.

Hey Sega Chief, hope you're doing fine in life with your new job
Did you stop the development of this mod or still continuing FF7 NT 2.1 ?
