Hello, hope your day is going okay.
I don't know how to start this other than to explain who I am before proposing this idea, so I don't look like a complete idiot.
So hi! I'm KingNecro, a veteran fire emblem player. I've been on these forums since about 2015, but I don't exactly post much. I just read other peoples comments and go off of that. But I've been recording videos, playing rom hacks, and trying to make some of my own ever since then.
Recently I had my old computer fixed, and I went through my storage and found some old fire emblem files that used to play. From this, I went to my new computer and started diving back deep into the fan-made games, and even playing through Fe6, 7, and 8. I recently finished playing through The Last Promise, and after suffering through the cringy edgelord that is Kelik, I realized that I wanted to make another fully fleshed out game. I don't know about the rest of the community, but I love playing through other people's rom hacks, because it shows off their own ideas, how they can create their own world and gives you a story to just dive deep into.
Then I realized that I am literally shit at art and music. Not to mention, I have no idea how to code complex things into the game like voice acting. MarkyJoe's video of FeBuilderGBA taught me a lot about event editing, but that's about it.
Then I also realized that there are a lot of really talented people in the community that could really contribute, and if we all worked together, we could make one cool motherf*cking hack.
I know what you're thinking. I seem like I'm new because I haven't posted on these forums in god knows how long, and it seems stupid to just pop up out of no where and suggest that random people come together and make a hack. I've realized that. But hell I want it, and I'm sure a lot of other people do too. So why not?
So if you're still reading this and haven't clicked off/wrote a comment telling me how much of an idiot I am, hear me out.
For a fully fleshed out hack we need:
3 event editors
3 composers for music
2 Map designers
2 portrait designers
2 animation designers
1 Weapon and class designer
2 storyboard writers
1 Support convo writer
1 Title screen artist
1 Skill designer/coordinator
Voice actors (The Last promise did it, we can do it better)
As many test players as possible
I think that if this all comes together, we should make this an Fe8 hack with skills and new animations and things of the sort. I have some ideas for a story that haven't been built up yet, but I don't want it to be just my ideas. That's the fun of making a hack like this, we can put everyone's ideas in it
Also, if the hack goes well enough, I'm willing to compensate for the people who really put a lot of work into it.
Let me know what you think, give me your feedback, let me know if I forgot anything. Thanks!
