Dekar Patch (Lufia II)

Postby SinReVi » Fri Nov 27, 2015 2:21 am

This patch is made for the US version of Lufia II
Download Link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/twd5g ... dition.ips

-Rated D for Dekar

-Warning: There might appear a few Dekars in your game when applying the patch!

ImageImage


-Warning: Also contains some nonsense changes!
ImageImage
(ignore that Gades name, I was using a savefile from another rom edit)
ImageImage

Other notes
Image
-Artea and Lexis look weird outside battle (they always do when I replace their sprites =/)
-I can't find Selan's battle sprites so she's no Dekar in battle.

(Now I can finally go to sleep!)

Bury me now. I can't. I can not. Oh god. *utter laughter and nonsense*

...I'll have to play this just to see Idura. I must. It can't be proper 'Dekar II: Dekar of the Dekar' unless Idura is now Dekar's evil twin. :twisted:

...It won't do anything with me. I start the game and it just gives me a black screen. Can you tell me which rom you used? Then I can chase it up somehow maybe...

THE DEKAR CEREMONY.
Man, this is one of your finest creations. I love the "He looks just like you" line, and Dekar dressed up like a princess.

Lufia 2 (US).smc
I used this.

Might fix this later:
-I noticed that Erim in the intro is a half Dekar, but the one in the ending (that shows up in the You little hoochees! scene) is not a half Dekar (there are actually 2 sets of Erim sprites in the game, one which is taller)
(I left Gades, Amon and Daos as they are, since they're bigger sprites. Though I considered changing Daos in the Catfish since they use the same palette)
-Might fix a few inconsistencies if I feel like it. (for example Forfeit Island is Dekar Island on the warp list, but Forfeit Dekar when you actually visit)
- replace the dead/unconscious sprites. Dekar doesn't even have one so I left them as is. (I guess Dekar's dizzy sprite from the intro would be funny =P)

The rom and patch name have to match. Otherwise it won't work.
example: Lufia2.smc and Lufia2.ips

I knew this :) but it still won't work. It gives me a checksum fail at the startup, though. I don't know why. And I've tried roms from different sources, nada. :cry: Getting real tired of ZSNES not giving me the Dekar-splosion I'm due. :P

...Are you sure it's the US version?

I use a different emulator (snes9X)

EDIT: I just tried it out on a different rom (a sfc file) and I also get the black screen. Then I downloaded a random Lufia II rom (smc file) and it does work on that.

It works for me now!

Image
...Even the priests are Dekar'd.

Image
...I named my hero 'Silly', it makes for positively grand conversation :D

Image
But the greatest change is this one. Has to be. I live to see Silly dekar up nowadays! :mrgreen:

I'm having some trouble patching. There is a lot of good info here, and I've successfully patched other patches and games before, but I have one question anyway. What ips patching program is recommended? Thanks!
