Is there a (super) easy way to convert FF maps for ffvt3r?

Renegade had a method for using FF maps in FFvTTR, If I remember correctly, he set up a different folder called area_speciff1 instead of area_specific, and all of the map assets were housed there. maybe if you look at a larger mo, like Benton's Marvel or DC mods he used that method for older maps.

Thanks, I'll try that.
 
I should add that all the ds_maps for ffvt3r that I've managed to track down (and you made those didn't you?) are kinda the inspiration for my map quest. I remember a lot of the maps that you made for FF and every time I run across one I wish I could repurpose it for ffvt3r.

Anyway, thanks for hours of bashing stuff in both games on your great maps.

Are you still making them?

I cant believe its been ~14 years, but  the FF1 map-pack I released way back in the day is a conversion of almost all the available FF1 maps at the time (~100+ of em).
Benton used it as the map base for a lot of his mods. He can probably tell you more about integrating and using it at this point than i can.

You can download it here:

Thanks Pizanno!

Now if I can just figure out why FFX3 is the only Mod I've ever tried to install in ffvt3r that actually works.

Damnit.

Is it something with your mod's shortcuts?

Like, do the mods just not run for you?
