Hi Mauron, sorry if this is off topic, but I was wondering if you know how to change weapon animation? In this case for Lucca, whenever I use its (default animation as seen in the pic below)
the projectile is kinda messy, I don't mind it, all I want to do is to put for example  Wondershot instead of the default one , any tips :) ?

Hi-Tech can edit the weapon animation and graphics data. If you select an attack, the weapon selection dropdown will be enabled, and you can choose the weapon you want to change. I haven't fully explored the values here however.

Thanks Mauron, worked perfectly! \o/
Filtered a couple of palette and found this one pretty cool for the Rainbow

Hello - new day, new question.

Do you know what the values for status durations and "tick" intervals are and/or how to modify them? Trying to figure out what determines the length of time effects like Haste and Protect are in effect, and also the frequency of ticks of things like MP regeneration.

Thanks!

Those values are set in RAM at the start of battle. There's limited ability to modify them at the moment, but I may create a plugin to handle some status data.

You made the duration unlimited in my hack already.

The unlimited duration is possible because I changed the in battle effects to apply like helmet effects. Extending limited durations would be a different hack.

Would you like to document this further? I might want to reference this in the tutorial video series. Any export files, etc. in your advancement/mod would be appreciated.

For instance, I'll change the "clear water" for Loc. Pallete #11 into "lava"

The first three values of the pallete's set are the water/sand colors.

Change:
3632B2 = 15,1,0
3632B4 = 12,1,0
3632B6 = 8,0,0

(just remember that this will change the sand in the Sinking Desert into Lava!)
..that's all there is to it!


I'm going to attempt to make this a plugin that shows the pallets for tilesets.
What do I need to know?

Displaying Silver Points in the menu is relatively easy, but the hack work required to get there is trickier.

Weapon/armor effects: Data for these start at 0x0C2A05, and each one is three bytes. The first byte determines what effect it has. In the case of 33% damage, the data would start with 02. The next two bytes will be something like 02 and 06. Looks like it's 02 01 03. 1 * byte2 / byte3 = damage modifier. If byte3 is zero, the value is not divided. If you change the first byte to 0B, it will become a magical attack with the same modifier.

You can't easily apply an element this way, but I could make a hack that would allow for that.

Palette plugin: You'll need, as a bare minimum, the data size, start location, if it's compressed, if it stays in the same place when modified.

In this case, it will stay in the same place, and all data is sequential. When configuring your SaveRecords, create a new array at the size of the total number of records. It can stay in the same place, so bOverride should be true. nOrigSize, nDataSize, and nMaxSize should all be 0xD2. I don't think these are compressed, in which case bCompressed will be false.

The original address is the trickiest part. You'll use GlobalShared's GetRomAddr() to find the base, then add set number * 0xd2, and a couple other functions thrown in to organize the data. This part is the most annoying.

I was going to finish this explanation with a couple more paragraphs, but I'm now halfway through a new plugin.  :oops:

Cool, though as someone who plays with this sort of thing I'd like to suggest a revert to vanilla button.

That's not doable without storing a copy of the original data in the plugin, which is both a pain and may require multiple vanilla copies if things were changed between the US and JP versions.
