Persona 4 Golden (Mod Request)

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone is working on or planning to work on adding new events, but is it possible to create new scenes with modding tools we have available (I know this was asked earlier, but I don't know if that changed)? I've never modded any of the persona games, so "bear" with me.

 

If we can't currently add new scenes, would it be possible to take an existing scene (let's take Chie's rank 10 lover route event as an example) and heavily modify the dialogue and choices using a series flags, variables and if/elseif/then statements? So let's say someone makes a script that will trigger the rank 10 social link event to play (probably by adding a choice when talking to Chie in the overworld), but it also sets a flag before the scene starts. Because of that flag, all of the dialogue, choices, character models, and bustups are different from the original scene but we haven't technically made any new scenes by doing this.

 

If this method would work, it would be a fairly round-a-bout way of doing it, and as such would make the code messier the more you add to one particular event.

I haven't played extensively with the mod, but I can see that there's some inconsistency with the bustups. I've only tested Chie for right now, but im event E165_002, she is regular for nearly the entire thing, then out of nowhere has her breasts exposed near the end of the scene. Like I said, I haven't tested much, but it would be great if this could be investigated some more.

Yeah, somewhat. I would advise you look into flowscripting. Although I hate to bring it up, if you look at the gay Yosuke mod, you can see that they just edit pre-existing events to be more...gay. Although it's hard to make new animations for the game, I think that "implied sex" would be the best route to go, kinda like the GTA:SA hot coffee thing (before modders actually unlocked it).

it's because whoever did the chie mod didn't make one for all the bustups so that's why the costumes do that sometimes. Not really sure how to edit text like they did with the yoskue mod but if you look into that then we could probably put something together

It's actually really quite easy. Most event text is stored in PM1 files, which are very easily editable. All you need is the program PM1MessageScriptEditor. It's a command line application, but very easy to use. To decompile PM1 to MSG (basically a plaintext file that's easily editable), right click in the directory of PM1MessageScriptEditor and open a PowerShell window. Then, you want to type 

 ./PM1MessageScriptEditor [/path/to/pm1file.pm1] p4

and find the output .MSG file in the same directory as the PM1 file. MSG, like I said, is just plaintext that defines who's talking, the bustup to call, etc. When you're done editing that msg, just type

./PM1MessageScriptEditor [path/to/msgfile.msg] p4

and the MSG is injected back into the PM1 file.

So basically I'm getting close to finishing the last of the girls. If you would like to support me so that we can work on bigger projects such as p5 scramble I would really appreciate it if you were to donate because it's a lot of hard work and I can't really afford better tools like a drawing tablet.
