Fire emblem 8: Quality of Life Patch
a.k.a. FE8 but it has QOL engine hacks made by the community
This is a compilation of some for the QOL improvements that have been made through assembly by the guys at Serenesforest/FEuniverse, intended for those who want to play FE8 vanilla or randomized and want some of the features these provide but don't want to get onto the buildfile or just are too lazy to do so.

F.A.Q. or Q.I.T.P.W.A(Questions I Think People Will Ask)
Q: Hey, i am getting lag on Chapter 8/ any other big chapter with lots of units
A: If the lag makes the game unplayable for you disable the HP Bars on the settings, and even if that doesn't work use the No HP Bars version, just make a savestate with your emulator, patch this onto a new ROM and load that savestate.
Q: Can i randomize a ROM with this patch installed?
A: In theory, yes, i tried with Otaku Reborn's randomizer and it didn't seem to have any problem, but i can't be 100% sure, if you find any error that might look to be related to this just post it and i'll try to fix it
Q: I installed this to X ROMhack/Rebalance hack and now my game crashes
A: That hack might change some things that the patches use, so if you want any of the things these patches do ask the creator of the hack to add them.
Q: How did you made this?
A: I made it using the buildfile method and adding all the patches and changing some texts, i recommend checking the FEE3 2016 video for it, if you got any further questions the peoople at feuniverse.us and their discord know much more than me and will be able to help you much more.
Q: Can i include this on my ROMhack?
A: You shouldn't, instead you should look for all the patches, add them and configure them by yourself.
Q: You left out some of the Essential fixes, why?
A. I left out things that would change the actual gameplay, like the weak promoted enemies fix and the EXP coefficient fix cause i wanted this to just be fe8 with QOL changes and the same gameplay, and even if its minimally, they affected a bit the gameplay. I also didn't add the Intro cutscene skip or the new game text skip cause there might be people who want to watch them.
Q: Can you make a FE6/FE7 Version?
A: For FE7 Yes, i will start working on it someday, but some patches aren't available for FE7 and i am a complete noob on FE7 hacking/FE7 in general. For FE6 it will surely be impossible, almost none of these patches has a FE6 version and i know even less of FE6 than FE7.
Q: Can i make a FE7 version myself?
A: Yeah, feel free to do it and when you post it PM me and i'll ad a link to your post on this question.
