Thanks! and a question about missing items...
First of all I wanted to say that I registered here just so I could say THANKS for this awesome conversion. I own the original FFXII but never bothered with the IZJS because of the Japanese text, so this was a really cool thing to hear about. A friend who was aware of this project and playing the results sent me the converted ISO and I'm using it with PCSX2 0.9.7. So far it's utterly awesome. The turbo button alone makes this a thousand times better than the original, but the job system, controllable Espers and guests, different spell and item spawns....marvelous! So a thousand thanks, ffgriever, for the hard work.
Now, a question. Was there an issue with missing items or incorrect items from chests in earlier versions of the patch? I don't see anything mentioned in the changelog file. The ISO I'm using was sent by a friend, as I said, and I've no idea whether he used an older version of the patcher to create it or not. I ask because I've got an issue with two missing spells in my current playthrough -- Dispel and Sleep. I've checked the many FAQs and maps that are available and they all say the same thing: Dispel is found in a chest in Tomb of Raithwall, Royal Passage, the one at the extreme end of the northernmost corridor; Sleep is found in Ogir-Yensa Sandsea, Platform 1/East Tanks, in a chest at the extreme southern edge.
In both cases I've already opened both chests and neither one of them contained a spell. I don't remember what WAS in them, but it was just standard items or gil. Now both chests are gone (since they're one-time-only) and I'm missing the spells. Was this an issue with previous versions and do I need to generate a new ISO using version 0.19 to make sure I get everything in the correct locations?
Just curious. Interestingly, several of the other one-time-only chests HAVE had their specified contents (the ones containing Silence and Infuse, for example).
Anyhow, even if I don't get an answer on this issue, thanks again to ffgriever for the hard work on getting us a playable English version!
