Hello, Sia. Thank you for your vote. :3

No, I didn't fix the blank spaces in the Rage menu. I definitely don't have the talent for that.

I want to add SilentEnigma's patch when it's finished, because I do think it would be a great error to fix. But I'm unsure because of potential compatibility issues. If people want to use the Siegfried/Chupon patch, for example... would they still be able to after the fix? I don't know how the fix would work, so I can't say. I only want as much freedom as I can give for people to customize this stuff without having to juggle nearly 200 patches. It makes me wonder if perhaps Chupon and Siegfried should always appear at the bottom of the list, regardless of whether the list is otherwise alphabetized or not. Their absence wouldn't be that strange if the empty spots were on the bottom, maybe?

I think placing the empty slots at the bottom is definitely one way to deal with the issue. I don't think I would mind this solution. I do want to mention that there is a patch that adds those rages back in. However, this feature seems to only be available in FF6ROSE. I assume this is a part of what SilentEnigma is working on for your bug-fix compilation. You can find its description under "non-standard tweaks". I will mention that the base version of ROSE does seem to have those empty slots patched out. This patch adds them back in as well. I will post the description below:

Quote:"FF6ROSE-ExtraRages":
 - Allows Typhon and Siegfried to be encountered on the Veldt once they have
   been fought in the Coliseum, making it possible to learn their Rages.
 - Based on Terii Senshi's "Rage" patch w/ C.V. Reynolds' "Rage Addendum".

Overall, I do think putting the empty slots at the bottom is also a reasonably acceptable solution.

Edit: I italicized FF6ROSE as that project is a collection of works. My last grammar class was a while ago, but the website grammar.yourdictionary.com states:

Quote:Italics – longer works and collections of works (e.g. novels, albums, movies, newspapers)
Quotation marks – shorter works and pieces of longer works (e.g. short stories, songs, poems, articles)

My interpretation of this is that patches should be referred to with quotation marks and larger projects should be italicized. Here is an example:

[Both FF6ROSE and Divergent Paths use the patch "Docile NPCs" to make crowded areas easier to traverse.]

Sorry for the extended grammar segment, but I was curious about the proper citation and format.

The Terii senshi patch that adds Siegfried and Chupon to the Veldt is still available on this site:
https://www.rpglegion.com/ff6/hack/patches.htm
But of course it has the error where they can pincer attack your party (the error I made the Rage Addendum patch to fix).

Version 2.0 is coming soon. I haven't forgotten. But I have a lot to work on. Still plan to get it out on New Year's. I want to add that Pugs Rage patch, too. I always wanted that one to actually work. Exciting. :3

The next version will definitely include Terii senshi's Summon Aim Fix. It fixes a dummied command, but it would be good for any hack that wants to use it. And doesn't hurt to have it there.

BIG update: Version 2.00 is finally here. Now... "There's Options".

Added: Summon Aim Fix (by Terii senshi)

Added: Pugs Rage (by SilentEnigma)

BIG update: "There's Options" folder, which is full of fun parts. Mix and match the patch types you want. It'd be nice to have a program for this like Secret of Mana Turbo has. But you all can get by on this cruddier format.
;P

Hopefully it all worked okay. Here's to the future of the project. Thank you, everyone. :3

What should be next? I'm thinking I should include all the appropriate readme files from these patches in another folder in the compilation. I mentioned doing this before. Thoughts?



Oh, and I'm aware that if a patch that includes "Pugs Rage" is used (such as the patches in this project), one can't patch with Alphabetical Rage afterward. Until now, anyway. I made this for myself, but you all can have it too. This is a adaptation patch. If you apply Pugs Rage, THEN apply Alphabetical Rage, apply this patch afterward to make things right. :3 (obviously don't apply this if you aren't going to use the patches in the order I stated, though)

There's no patch out yet, mostly because of the issues raised above. There are actually two patches in the works now:
  • One will remove the slots for Chupon & Siegfreid, as promised, and reduce the list capacity by 2 -- but only if you don't have Terii Senshi's Rage patch enabled. That's the plan, anyway.
  • The other will be the alternative to Terii Senshi's Rage patch that you suggested, where Gau will instantly learn Chupon/Siegfried if he encounters each in the Coliseum. (This one is almost ready.)
Once those are available, I don't think there will be a need to move Chupon & Siegfried to the bottom of the list.

Going down the list of patches, I have trouble remembering what bugs half of them are fixing. It would be nice to be able to quickly look up the description for each. Putting the readme files together would be one way. There might be other ways to get that same value, like putting a table together on the wiki?

Kind of a rough state of affairs :/

It would be nice if one could simply apply the compatible Pugs Rage after Alphabetical Rage to fix things, but as of now that does not work. Nor is it feasible to make Pugs Rage forward-compatible.

If anything improves with the situation, I will follow up here.
