Hello good people of the forums, I am here with my Shadows of Valentia hack, Amiibos++.
Amiibos++ turns the various ghostly amiibo into fully playable units, along with updating their animations and models to no longer use that ghostly state! These new amiibos are also now recruitable in a fresh save, but not on a completed save quite yet. I haven't figured out a way to add a new NPC to towns yet, so yeah.
How do I install this mod: Drag the files from the downloaded .zip file into your ROMFS folder. This Folder will always have the title id of 00040000001B4000. This has only been tested on a USA Cartridge/Digital, and EUR Digital with the Title ID of 00040000001B4100 on an Old 2DS, so it may not work on a Japanese or English Patched Japanese version of the game.
Where do I recruit my new allies: At the beginning of Alm's Route, recruiting Kliff and Faye will result in Marth, Roy, Lucina and Corrin (M) joining, effectively doubling Alm's starting power. At the beginning of Celica's route, you can recruit Ike, Corrin (F), and Robin, from recruiting Genny and the forced Saber Recruitment.
Bugs: Shields look odd on Marth and Roy. Find a way to alter where they get attached.
Ike's victory animation looks awkward, but a new victory animation isn't possible right now. Will be fixed once I learn how to do specific stuff like that.
Male Corrin's cape does not vanish properly during certain animations. Apparently Dread fighter animations don't like his cape.
Alm does not hold amiibo weapons in his left hand. Amiibo weapons vanish when put into the convoy, but with auto equip will reappear again.
Seems thats about all of it. Now let's move onto the juicy stuff.

I keep this up to date with the releases, so no need to worry.
Showcase Video: It's laggy, and it crashes twice, but it gets the point across? This video is from a slightly older version where amiibos didn't use Generic voices.
