[FFL2] Key Names Edit ?
« on: 2020-Mar-05 19:43 »
Hello there, survived the storm and got power back out here now !
First off, I have to thank @Den  for their patience in explaining
How the meat/items drops work in the game.
Now that I have understanding on that concept
I have a new mystery that I am asking to be solved.
How do you edit "Key" Names of things like Enemies, Items, and Skills ?

For example, lets say I want to edit the name of the first boss monster "BabyWyrm".
First, where would I find where it's name is stored ?
Second, how would I edit it to be something like "Scout" ?

I have noticed, in the updates for neoFFL2 (version 5-300)
Most of the skills/items have been renamed.
Ultimately, I will like to learn how to edit these skills/items beyond their names
But for now, I would just like to learn how to edit the Key Names of things in the game.

@Den 

You are really amazing, been up since 7:00am this morning researching ".TBL" files.
So I have been using "HxD" Hex Editor version 2.4.0.0 (x86-64)
And it has a column named "Decoded Text"
Well, to me it looks like a bunch of "gibberish" to me so I have always ignored it.

Never used a translator program before, but "WindHex32" seemed a bit similar at first.
Opened the file like normal, but when I initially opened the table file it would not recognize it.
It took way longer than expected to figure out that I has saved it as a "Text Document"
Thankfully, all I had to do was open it and save it as a ".tbl" file.

But gosh, this recommended program is really cool.
Now that I have imported the table file, I can see the Decoded Text !!
So when I jump to Offset :  0003EEC0
I can see the start of the monster name "Fungus"
Again, you really are my hero when it comes to things like this !
I plan to play around with this over the weekend
And once it get this down, will bug you about how to edit Items/Skill properties.
Thanks again
