Utilities: FF4kster v0.7
« on: January 09, 2015, 06:48:11 am »

Update By: pinkpuff

The all-in-one Final Fantasy 4 hacking utility, FF4kster, has received another significant update. It now features a "Tileset Editor" which allows you to change the properties of the tiles in the various tilesets (things like which tiles are on which layer, which tiles can trigger events or chests, warp you out, damage the party, cause random encounters, etc).

In addition, the program no longer relies on prepackaged image files for the tile images, instead reading them directly from the rom you're editing. This way, if you change any of the in-game map tile graphics, those changes will be reflected by the editor. The overlays indicating which tiles trigger events or warps or can be walked behind are also now generated dynamically based on the tile settings.

Finally, as usual there are a few minor bug fixes and improvements, including many more safeguards against data bleeding. Adding data should now be a lot safer as it will now either warn you or explicitly prevent you from adding too much (in most cases, that is... there still may be some areas that allow bleeding so you should still be careful, but events, messages, spell sets, triggers, and NPCs should all be safe).

Very nice work ya'll! I've been sorta following this project as a ghost on Slick Productions and it really is shaping up into an incredible editor. I doubt I can withstand the urge to mess around with FFIV for much longer with this powerhouse coming into fruition more and more.

Y'all. As in "you all."

Computers should come with breathalyzers :beer:
I'm surprised that's all I messed up on. Damn Google Chrome's instant spell check for allowing me to make a fool of myself lol - apparently, ya'll is a word to Google Chrome.
Anyways, great utility y'all!

Does anyone know how RHDN Bot chooses what utility to put on the front page? I uploaded Banjo's Backpack here and they accepted it (you can find it in utilities, it is a full-featured level-editor!) but they never put it up on the front page.

If you want it to appear exclusively as a front page item, you'll have to fill out a news entry for it. Other than that, wait until RHDNBot makes a post listing the latest.
