Hello, I'm seriously trying to restore the slots in HG/SS, Hatchetball once said that his friends made it swapping the narcs and the triggers. I found the cleared graphic, is the same of the Japanese rom, except for the erased pics, but the other values are the same, then the file could be swapped and is a narc, but him said also about "triggers" what is the triggers file in HG/SS? Someone know it? If I could know where is this file, maybe I could instead of simply swap it find a way to add also a script function to keep both slots and Voltorb flip, but I need of know where are these triggers to start. Please can you tell me where are?

Maybe Sheimi know where they are?

I found the files involved with the slots and the Voltorb flip:

Voltorb Flip ASM code is in the Overlay122 (international, in the japanese rom 122 is the next 123 international)
Voltorb flip graphic resource is in the added "contents\a\2\6\4" file.

Slot machines ASM code is in the Overlay77, in the international rom is only a placeholder I think, are only 20 bytes, something is written into, but maybe is only an instruction to turn back, in the japanese file I found also the text pointer, is important 'cause in the international the texts are relocated.

Slot machines graphics is in the A/1/2/7 file, in the international release are only cleared the images with other hex values intact, I thought then that the code was untouched, and instead no... :'(

I tried to replace the Voltorb flip asm file and also the graphic, but didn't work, the slots crashed.

Now I need of help to adapt the slots ASM file, I think is the problem, 'cause the international Overlay77 file don't exists and then the rom freezes 'cause the ASM try to load contents relocated I think. I found the texts, but I don't know if there are other relocated resources or ASM. Can you help me please? I found the files, please don't left me...

I found the script structure in ARM9 file that determines which overlay file have to start the "030C" script value, that is Voltorb flip in international releases and Slot machines in japanese. Then I think that if there is room to add a new entry or replace an useless script command (maybe like leftovers from Platinum or debug script functions) should be possible keep both VF and slot machines, when the slots code will be fixed to works with international roms. Then can you help me please? And there are useless script functions from Platinum or debug to overwrite with the new script trigger for the slots?

@dmoeenm are you interested to this? I discovered something else since the last time, the script structure, the overlay file of the ASM routine in both versions and how the ASM are linked to the files. But I don't know how hack it via ASM. If you are an expert maybe could you help. :)

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
