Translations: AGTP Updates on Live-a-Live
« on: January 14, 2008, 02:18:12 am »
Update By: I.S.T.

Gideon Zhi has posted an update for Live-A-Live at AGTP.

“It´s taken a whole lot longer than anyone could have predicted, but I think we´ve finally fixed all of the little niggling technical issues. One particularly nasty one, just resolved, would corrupt your save data and replace characters with multiple Oersteds.

The scripts are all edited save for the final chapter, but of course due to that previously-mentioned save corruption, I need to restart the game from the beginning. Provided a speedy replay and no further technical problems (and maybe some wrangling with SNES9X´s cheat engine) an in-house betatest should be coming pretty soon, with a release following shortly thereafter. No promises, though! We thought the technicals had been resolved last September, but look how wrong we were!”

Well, I'm certainly looking forward to this. I never played the original patch for LAL, and after RC started working on it, I looked into it, and it looks like an awesome title. =D

Of course, eight hours or so after I posted the update I discover that the sram bug still isn't squashed :(

Yay!  An update!

Really a smashing game, this one, but while it was of course swell to be able to play it in English at all, the original patch really was a bit rough around the edges.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

Gideon:

If it's any help I ran into the same problem with Heracles 3 and had to restart hacking from scratch. You must have overwritten some part of RAM that gets saved in the SRAM. Make sure you didn't expand to 24bit pointers with a byte that is used for something else. Also, if you expanded any variable lengths they may have overwritten other important data in RAM. You may need to do a workaround by creating a trigger byte that loads in the variables from a 24bit address when the trigger is hit. This way you can store variables like item names in RAM safely without breaking the usual 6-8 length limit. Just an idea but I know every game is different.

Cool! It's been a while since I helped out on LAL... probably won't have time to play the new version though.

Guideon,

Your website is unavailable from China but works fine from Canada. Just thought you'd like to know.

RHDN works fine.

I'm back in Canada at the moment, so I can finally access Guideon's site, but that was impossible while I was in China.

You must've done something to piss off the Communist Party. ;)
