  1. Know it's an old post, but to save anyone else time in the future here is a complete visual list of all the portraits in the game and their pointers. I didn't make it, just consolidated them, whoever made it seems to have ordered them by family. I just added the generic portraits to complete it. (Oddly a FE3 one makes it in, the only FE3 hold over I have found in FE4) https://imgur.com/a/0Gg4aHi
  2. I started messing around with FE4 again recently and looked in to the unused sword skills a little more (they got no names in-game, but fans, and the site, call them "holy sword" and "darkness sword"). I did some tests and the activation rate is the same as the other sword skills, that being whatever your skill is (I made a character's skill 100 and they activated 100% of the time, 50 skill and it was ~50% of the time, etc.). The description for the holy one is *slightly* off while the description for the dark one is completely off. They holy one adds +20 _attack_, not +20 _damage_. This results in it giving +40 damage when critical hits activate (as the +20 is applied before the critical x2). In addition, unlike while attacking, the defensive side is always -20 damage, critical hit or not. The dark one is not a damage multiplier, but actually an exact clone of the holy one (+20 attack and -20 damage taken), the only difference between the two is the color of the graphics. The description of both should read something like "Increases attack by 20 and lowers damage taken by 20." I know the skills are unused, but if the site is going to list them as it does, I figured the info should be correct still. If proof is needed I can upload a video. Edit: Also they do not activate with other sword skills and unlike Sol and Luna can miss.
  3. Random question out of nowhere. Does anyone have an event offset list? Particularly ones that generate stats or items, I mean the player weapon ID itself, for example Arvis giving Sigurd item 1C (I forget what it is, but it's irrelevant to the point) instead of 0A (the first silver sword), though event data in general is welcome.
  4. For clarification, It's not an arena style fight, two units going head to head on a map, so charge can still activate. I made this really quick video to kind of show what I am doing, it's not particularity great since I made it in a few minutes without any sort of editing (cutting out death fade outs/screams, music, etc.), it's a 2 minute sample just to get the idea across. The reason for topic creation is, I wanted the most powerful variants of a child characters to be the ones taking part.
  5. You reminded me of an important thing, factoring in stat boosts from conversations which I had forgotten. Weapons are not maxed kills to keep the skill somewhat unique. Though your dreadlord comment gets the idea, each character is going to be going against not just the dreadlords, but the whole cast, rounded out to 100 (All player, all plot-relevant NPCs that appear as a unit Eldigan, Arvis, Arion, etc., generic bosses that have unique stats and skills, such as Boyce.) The reason I think Nihil will be of more value here than the base game is because about 1/5 of the enemies you encounter have some sort of skill it negates, and that increases if they are a class that is weak to a certain weapon. One example of this is Sigurd with the Tyrfing equipped actually lost to Chagall of all people because he landed two knight killer hits thanks to a lucky great shield. I think the note you made with Tinny is interested, switching to Elwind is won't be a huge deal since it is only six damage lower, and the amount of doubling (she will have high speed) will more than make up for it. For some reason I was remembering wrong and thought Mage Fighter had pursuit (maybe since every other "fighter" does). Bolganone may be useful in a select few fights. I think for Lana Lewyn may still be better since the high priest has atrocious speed, adept + crit increases the chances (though I haven't done the math completely). As for Lester a killer bow is an option as well and I find it's commonly making it's way on to the contenders, though shifting weapons is allowed for times it's more beneficial. (The killer bow has 3 weight instead of eight). The other mounted kids mentioned make sense, though if you see the combatant list you may change your mind about the Nihil thing, I'll give the list. Some simply won't matter (For example I don't see someone like Lester killing someone like Shannon, Nihil or not) but it will certainly be useful in others. Here is the combatant list... (It will be a mix of localized and unlocalized names since I don't know all of them) Sigurd Noish Alec Arden Azel Lex Finn Quan Ethlyn Midel Aiden Dew Jamka Ayra Dierdre Holyn Lachesis Lewyn Sylvia Beowulf Erin Tailtu Claude Bridget Eldigan Young Arvis (Sage) Byron Lombard Reptor Andrei Chagall Mahnya Radney Rodalvan Mana Dimna Tristan Oifaye Julia Feemina Amid Johan Johalva Shannon Daisy Jeanne Ares Linda Laylea Asaello Hawk Sharlow Hannibal Seliph Larcei Ulster Lana Lester Delmud Fee Arthur Patty Leaf Nanna Tinny Leen Faval Ced Corple Altena Danan Ishtor Vampa Blume Travant Lideel Arione Hilda Old Arvis (Radically different in combat from his sage form, so he gets in twice) Roberto Boyce Brian Scorpius Ishtar Meng Manfroy Julius (Chapter 10 version, +5 magic, no nihil, only 2 characters even have a chance otherwise, Dierdre & Julia) Mus Bovis Tigris Lepus Draco Anguilla Equus Ovis Simia Gallus Canis Porcus Zeus All level 30 (for bosses not yet level 30 I made a formula to get level 30 stats) And remember everyone has access to any weapon they can use, so it will change stuff up a lot. I have only tested it with Sigurd (well not yet the children characters because I am still figuring them) and there has been some surprising outcomes both losing to some I didn't expect (such as the aforementioned Chagall) and getting some odd victories in. The rules so far (feel free to criticize/add something). Attacker chooses weapon before defender. Due to OP as hell holy weapons, plus the way FE4s quirks when it comes to counter mechanics, this works better. Attacker goes first in the case of equal attack speed (For example Sigurd and Byron both have 22 AS, Sigurd went first) No rings/bracelets allowed, the only exception is Zeus since he is sort of a unique case. I think I layed the rest out in an earlier post. EDIT: Grammar
  6. I'm working on a project for something, not doing a play-through, so I guess *technically* it could be considered a ROM hacking sort of thing, but my question doesn't really belong there since it's not about the modifications themselves, and more gameplay elements (which anyone who plays the vanilla game can give input and opinions on). That is why I am looking for solely battle performance. Imagine what would be the strongest if forced to fight strong opponents 1v1 on plane tiles. As I said in my first post, fathers are not limited to one pairing and siblings are not bound to the same father. I am looking merely for the strongest 1v1 combat for each child character at level 30. While this isn't exactly what I am doing, I guess a good way to get an idea across would be which father would each kid benefit from the most of forced in to an arena gauntlet sort of situation. And there are no limits, so Ced, Arthur, and Corple can all use Foreseti. My main question is for the kids who don't really have an obvious answer (those who can not inherit holy weapons or game breaking skills, such as Nanna, Lester, etc.)
  7. Sort of working on a little project at the moment. I am looking for what most would consider the best father for each child (Also I don't know all the localized names, so forgive me if I use a few older versions). The rules for this... 1: Siblings don't need to have the same parent. You could do caster guy x Aiden for a better Lana, and physical guy x Aiden for a better Lester. 2: The father isn't limited. So Lewyn can be the father of Arthur, Corple, and Ced who can thus all use Forseti. 3: No limitation of weapons. As long as the kid has the rank to use it, they can, regardless of if it's even obtainable/limited in number/can be inherited. 4: This is factoring in only combat at max level. Things like availability, movement, staff usage, and similar do not matter. 5: Rings/bracelets are banned. So there won't be any "With <x skill> ring, so and so would be amazing!" kind of scenarios. Just base skills and ones that equipped weapons provide. 6: Opponents are going to be competent, not -10 attack speed knights and bandits or whatever, so for example adept may be preferable to pursuit on a character that is normally faster than generic enemies, but not against bosses or whatever. I know a couple are extremely obvious, such as Larcei having Holyn as a father for Balmung access. But I would be interested in input for others. So far it's looking like Lewyn for every caster child since he gives access to Forseti, or tornado for the minor blood children (or Elwind for Lana). Holyn for Larcei, Ulster, Patty, and Leen. The first two because Balmung, the later two since they kind of require Luna to actually kill anything. Alec for most of the rest ones due to rounded growths that usually result in capped stats, or only off by 1-2 points, and the powerful nihil skill. Though more detailed analysis and other opinions are welcome. I ask since I need to add them as static characters (i.e. what non-children characters and enemies are) rather than dynamic ones.
  8. Yep it's fine, will give me time to finish it up anyway.
  9. Seems my memory was awful after all. So what does that leave? FE5? I remember FE8 had axe fighters but I don't remember if they were Grado or bandits. EDIT: Also for the initial question before being derailed, most main lords use swords, so it's to have them not be at a disadvantage I suppose.
  10. I thought the first chapter was Begnion with the bandits appearing in like 2 or 3. Or am I recalling wrong? Been a bit since I last played it.
  11. Yeah but generic bottom of the barrel soldiers are (both statistically and plot related) just as bad as the bandits most of the time. FE5 and FE10 have you fight Freege and Begnion occupation forces. I haven't played FE14 so I am not sure if that one has a bandit first chapter or not.
  12. I apologize to butt in, but I think this may be the most appropriate place to put this currently. I have encountered a bit of a bug in the second generation. Leif seems to have low HP growth. Their growths *should be* above 100% (I have rechecked inheritance formulas to be sure) yet they constantly miss getting HP on level ups. At first I thought to check to make sure it didn't overflow, the growth was nowhere near 255%, but I thought *maybe* the game did that at 128 like some (despite the fact FE4 doesn't have negative growths), but then remembered in the base game you can have growths higher than that. So I have no idea what the cause may be. This is not the arena bug, it's happening on the main map. For an example, using the growths in my patch (different from base game). Ethlyn has 70% HP, Quan has 100% HP, minor Baldo and Noba give 10% each, therefor Leif should have 140% HP growth. And as stated before, he's missing HP on level ups. Anyone have any ideas? Can you run our of RNs on the main map like in the arena? EDIT: Ignore this I figured out the issue when I looked at the memory, seems if base growth (no holy blood factored in) exceeds 128 it resets. Leif had 7% HP growth because he should of had 135% (135-128=7). I was thrown off because I was using Ethlin's base for him when I calculated it (Altenna gets the major Noba so I just assumed she got Quans growths as well without thinking). Edited out the Nanna part since it was just the RNG screwing around, kind of odd she missed HP 8 times in a row with 95% growth.
  13. He survives Alvis' troops incinerating everyone at the end of chapter 5 (I assumed, because...) then end up getting killed by Manfroy. Holsety revives him (in the intro cut-scene, using the Valkrie staff, not sure if for convenience or there is any relation), or at least his body, and possesses him to aid whoever may stand up to Loptous (Which is Seliph). I am going to assume that, unlike Loptous and Naga, the tome itself is not required because no matter who the tome is passed down to, Lewyn's story remains the same and the child with it doesn't really have anything special other than an OP as hell weapon.
  14. On the 2nd list (hacks/modifications) It's "Fire Emblem 4 Remix" by camus the dark knight. Not the most creative name, but it fit since was mostly just fixing FE4 qualms everyone had (a couple examples would be near-useless weapon types or pursuit being required to double) then ramping up the difficulty since the base game is pretty tame. Basic idea was to make game play a bit more interesting than having a couple mounted units tear through the entire game. If you think replacing it should be better I am fine with that, be sure to put a disclaimer it doesn't work with the newest translation patch. Maybe some time I will look at the code of the latest patch and see what is conflicting and causing crashes and potentially update to work with it (I am assuming both use the same blank space for new code, and that is in conflict), but it's not the intent currently. Last I checked it still works with the old one (J2E & Twilkitri one), though I always did work on the base game since the old translation patch had a few wonky issues, so I can't be 100% sure.
  15. FE6 > FE7 > FE8 FE6 is less refined and characters are bland, but the overall story is better, it has much more reasonable difficulty, and a post-game exists even if the trial maps are kind of meh. FE7 has improved game play mechanics imo and better characters, but it's overall story is extremely underwhelming. No post-game either. FE8 has forgettable characters and a meh story, didn't really add anything other than branched promotion, and an unreasonably easy difficulty. It's post-game is the best of the three, but that isn't saying much.
  16. https://serenesforest.net/general/translation-patches-and-hacks/ Or at the least put a disclaimer that it is old and outdated, it was put up when this site was still pretty new. The newer translation patch breaks it, so I get "The game breaks when X" messages periodically from people. It has been outdated for some time anyway due to having a lot of old bugs that were common back in those days, that have since been fixed, though the one on the site has not been updated. I'm playing through it and plan on cleaning up anything and just releasing a final version on the modding forums after. Much thanks ahead. EDIT: Looking at it, maybe the page should be updated with the newer translations as well?
  17. To answer the question you have to have an understanding of the group in question. Like all extremists they are religiously dedicated to their cause and don't have a short memory. Think of one of those kinds of people who can hold a grudge because a kid stole their bag of Halloween candy when they were eight. They don't hold minor disapproval for him supporting Israel, they literally hate him for it. The majority are either not voting, or voting in Trump's opponent to "speed up the collapse". As for the wall question, they believe the Jews are behind the push for migration and that brown people are their useful idiots. Therefor, by their logic, eliminate the Jewish problem, and the others can be dealt with swiftly. During my time lurking on extremist sites (of all sorts) I have found that it is not really hatred that is the underlying cause for the extremism. It certainly fuels it, but from what I have observed it's fear. Like the saying there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal, or the saying about a cornered animal will lash out. If someone believes themselves or their kin to be in danger (in the case of the alt-right, it's the death and destruction of their people and culture via replacement migration), they will lash out, and the more people try to suppress them whether through censorship, shame, etc. The bigger the backlash will be once it occurs. I think I am done with this topic, it's been fun but I am tired of explaining things to people who still think I am on some side for some reason. If anyone feels the need to trash talk me, get the last word, etc. just send a PM.
  18. Fire Emblem 4 It gave me the idea to check up on the site.
  19. I suppose it depends on your definition. Generally when I think of "alt-right" I think of the crowd that wants an ethno-state to the point other ethnicities should be deported or executed, hates the majority of non-white races save east Asians, abhors Jews due to their role in certain ideologies they loathe (for one example, communism), views gay people (and similar) as a poison to society and wants them to be locked up or executed, thinks the weak should perish and the strong should be at the top, are hyper-nationalist in addition to ethno-nationalist, and maybe around ~65% are authoritarian. If forced to choose between eliminating all Jews or putting up a wall on the Mexican border, they would pick the first option without hesitation. I don't consider someone who likes Trump, thinks a wall would be good, and is a civic nationalist (doesn't care about ethnicity so long as they are loyal to the nation) "alt-right" personally. Not sure if "moderate right" is the correct term or not, but it should get the point across.
  20. Capital punishment is still legal in Japan. It's used in cases of multiple murders, so he will probably be getting the rope (quite literally).
  21. I had read the guy accused them of stealing his IP a year or so ago and went postal over it. I am not sure how much truth there is to it, though things like that have happened in the past so it's not an impossibility. Even if true, setting the place ablaze is a pretty crazy response though. I would not be surprised if he had a bunch of other issues and that (Assuming it were true) was the trigger.
  22. Much like the response Shoblongoo made as I was typing this post up, you probably should of said who it was directed it. If it was me, what can I say? I came back to the site for other reasons (FE4 related), noticed the topic title, read some of it, and decided it would be interesting to throw something in to break the monotony of it. I hate the right/left paradigm since it boils down all debate and argument in to a black and white issue, which is unproductive as the past dozen or so posts have proven. Though for the sake of argument I will use it in this post. I'm not even defending fascism. I am against authoritarianism which, by necessity, it must be. I just noticed a lot of people are ignorant of it's aspects and was attempting to educate, but seems nobody will hear of it. Oh well, such a shame. Because I have studied it I can however explain it's appeal to the right. Fascism appeals to the right because of it's emphasis on traditional values, nationalism, and it's anti-communist stance (and as should be obvious, communism is abhorred by the right) the mindset behind the ideology is a "strength through unity" sort of idea (to boil it down to the most simplistic of it's explanations), whatever that may be, in the case of Nazi Germany is was racial, while a place like Italy had a more civic take on it, just to name the big two. Without some homogeneous trait among the entire population (whatever that might be), it wouldn't work, which is why it must purge those who do not conform. However there are other traits that the right would not find appealing, such as it's collectivist nature, but that was qualm people in the 20s and 30s deemed tolerable because the destruction of communism was their main priority. As for the alt-right, perhaps during the election when they were hoping he was the second coming of Adolf Hitler, but the majority of them despise Trump and the republicans now because he pledged support for Israel and has *not* done the horrific things some claim (they would *like* to see non-whites rounded up and shipped out, or worse), they see him as a traitor because of that. The non-extremist ones seem to be the only group who still like him. If the US was truly fascist (in the traditional sense), Antifa protests (or similar) would be gunned down by the state. How on Earth did you derive that? I don't watch Youtube very often and when I do it's usually for humorous/gameplay videos. My point was that perhaps said people you speak of reached the conclusions they did because they actually read the literature. Are you projecting or something? Or are you afraid reading literature by it's founders/followers will challenge your held beliefs? Have you never once asked yourself why these ideologies became popular in the early 20th century? Alright you meant modern Russia, yeah I have heard of it before. You hadn't stated the time period, so I wasn't 100% sure. I am in agreement with the majority, I think the 3rd Reich's economy wouldn't of lasted, I just find it an interesting topic to think about. I looked it up and it seems there is an older one (the one you speak of, I assume) from ~1960, certainly a better choice as the stigma was nowhere near as strong at that point, I will be sure to look in to it. Also I never once claimed I read nor watched a video of cliffnotes about it. I outright said I have not read a book of his. Since there was another reply I was typing (Shoblongoo) this that I don't want to restart the post I'll just past reply to it here... As I said earlier in the post, I don't really watch Youtube stuff, so I have not seen the people he speaks of, I was just presenting a potential explanation. Also good to hear it, I wasn't asking for specifics, more just experience, I was curious because (for one example) I have quite frequently encountered people who have lived in a rural/urban area who have the mindset the entire world is like their respective region. I grew up in a moderate sized town in Mass, lived in city later (Boston) and now the middle of nowhere (population ~550) so it's been fascinating to witnesses ideological differences. I'm also a subscriber to "actions speak louder than words" but talking about the actions of the leaders of the early 20th century is... difficult, for lack of a better term, on a site like this due to certain rules, it's impossible to talk of them objectively without some rule being broken (For example, if I gave a reason for an event happening, some might read it as an excuse and report. Despite the fact reasons and excuses are two very different things), so it's limited to ideological talk, otherwise you will be branded a troll, racist, etc. by someone offended, which people *will* attempt to use against you, I have been using forums and message boards long enough to know that. Also I would love to hear said choice words within what rules allow (well I would like to hear them all, but I know things have to be kept tame on this site), because it sounds like I am giving off the wrong impressions. I am not easily offended so let loose with whatever you feel you can within the rules.
  23. The majority of said Youtube essays come *because* people read the literature. If curious, in regards to this subject, The Communist Manifesto (Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels), The Doctrine of Fascism (Benito Mussolini), Das Kapital (Karl Marx), ~65% of Mein Kampf (Adolf Hitler), Economic Problems of Socialism in the U.S.S.R (Joseph Stalin), to name a few. I have a fascination with political and military history and the ideologies that fuel them, so it should be no surprise that the first half of the 20th century is a massive point of interest. If it's something that interests you as well I recommend starting with "100 Questions About Fascism" by Oswald Mosley because it's a manifesto, thus it's short (only ~40 pages) and a good introduction for an English speaker (Mosley was British, so no potential translation shenanigans), or if you want to hear the communist PoV first you should start the Communist Manifesto, which is also short (~45 pages) though this one is obvious. Just wow... have you actually read the works of fascists? Or are you parroting common accusations? Because it sounds like the latter. Would be like I said making people starve was part of communist policy (which if you have ever read communist literature, you will know it isn't) Also let me make it clear I was not saying it was a leftist ideology either (because your response sounds like you thought I did). You, well people in general, must stop thinking in this left right paradigm and learn to look up. It's a method of control, and has been for centuries at this point. As for your brilliant fascism analysis... You are conflating fascism with Nazism, admittedly a form of fascism that Hitler put a racial spin on. It's something damn near everyone seems to do, however that was not an aspect of the base ideology, for example fascist Italy and Spain didn't give a damn about ethnicity so long as you swore absolute loyalty to the state, if you read any fascist literature you would of known this. You are right however, about the method Nazi Germany used to fuel the flames of the antisemitic fire that began *during* World War One. However this leaves the question, if these fascist traits are as pervasive in US culture as you claim, why is it still socially unacceptable to support them? Why does the mainstream media not propagate them? If it were as bad as you said, the news would be doing nothing bad trash talking "traitors" who speak in favor of migrants, and constantly saying what an amazing leader Trump is for wanting to build a wall and deport the lot of them, and it would be socially acceptable to say whatever the negative sentiment you wanted. If you think that is the case, then take a look at an *actual* alt-right group (voat, stormfront, etc.) and tell me if Western society on a large scale supports the sentiment you find there. You also still haven't answered my questions. You are under no obligation to, but I figured it would of been insightful. I'll take it from the sources over someone analyzing it five decades later when it already has an established stigma, perhaps I will get to these sorts of writings at some point. I'll agree to disagree here, the wehrmacht had a huge emphasis due to the upcoming clash between the communists and fascists (people were aware it was going to happen since the 20s), but there were a lot of other programs that were focused on. National socialism didn't live out it's natural life due to being defeated and dismantled, so we can only speculate about it's fate had it, or at least it's financial system, ran it's full course. Nazi Germany used a labor back currency to both avoid loans from central banks, and avoid attracting the attention of it's neighbors, this has not been tried again, so it remains speculation at best. Also what Russian fascists? The communists had taken the nation over by the mid-20s and it was single-party. The side that opposed the communists during the Revolution remained loyal to the tsar, so if anything were monarchists (though I would say the majority of them were just anti-communist, rather then tsarist), or do you mean fascist groups in modern Russia?
