  1. I've run into this issue whilst hacking FE8 on chapter 2, although I'm not sure if the chapter itself is the problem. So, when I load my units, everything is fine at first, as seen in this image: https://imgur.com/mWs7e2O But whenever I restart this chapter, (by using the in-game menu option) for some reason the cleric and the knight change classes to a knight and a paladin respectively: https://imgur.com/sw0q9w5 This doesn't occur when hard-resetting the emulator or resuming the chapter. (although the changes will be there if resuming after restarting the chapter) If it does mean anything, the two units in question here are being loaded using the LOAD2 command, as they had appeared in the previous chapter, where they were loaded using LOAD1 and below is the unit pointer bracket which they are being loaded in, along with the other two allied units, who appear to be fine. And when they change into the class, they retain all of their current stats and weapon ranks and inventory, so they don't appear to be loading as completely different units. I've attached the event script below, including the code where I load them in. For reference, the two units experiencing this issue are Gilliam (Sword Knight) and Franz (Cleric).

  2. Yep, still only 5 conversations per character. So, once you get an A support, you have to start the Alicia mode over again. (Through a new game) And then do the same thing to get another A support. It's a bit of a grind, I know, but I don't think there are any workarounds to it that I would only be able to apply to this chapter. The main part of the chapter is just to bring some context to some of the things that didn't quite get enough background though, seeing as I didn't have a world map events like the normal games would or anything.
  3. I wouldn't worry about it too much, he's not important at all really. Short story is, he's just a prisoner of the fortress, that isn't quite all there anymore. The longer story is a much longer one that has to do with the events of the Great War that people keep referring to in the game. It can sort of be learned about through some supports (Val & Kane, Isaac & Kane, for example) and then Alicia's mode. Even then, there's not a whole lot to know. Just think of him as a way of getting your S rank axe. As for this, from the Secrets/Missable Stuff Spoiler on the front post: Misc: After beating the game, there is an extra chapter available if you start a new game on Hector (Alicia) mode. There's not actually a map to fight on or anything, so don't get your hopes up. And what Layla is talking about is that basically, when you finish the chapter, you can repeat it again and again, allowing you to get character's A supports unlocked, if you really want to. It's not like Hector mode in being an alternative version of the Ash story, or being a whole new thing.
  4. If you do Shift + Enter, you should be able to get single line breaks in your text. Or does it still force the spacing of the image, even then? The main source of slowdown here is working around the hidden super mini bosses - the Hero and the General before the stairs, although they probably won't give you too much trouble here, I assume. I think the fastest I've done this chapter is around 7 or 8 turns. That involved being really aggressive, just running up one side of the map and running through the enemies that came my way. The turn count was more restraining in a much earlier version of the game that I had, where units the balancing for both the player and enemy units was a bit more off, but I left it there even after changing things just as a worse case scenario. I doubt very many people have trouble with it on normal mode, but I've seen some people who reach up into 13 or so turns to complete it, because their playstyle is a little too defensive. On Hard mode, you absolutely have to be as aggressive as possible if your units aren't particularly strong though. It's very difficult to go sub-10 turns there, without some luck. Also: And yeah, to confirm, no support changes anything at all within my part of the game. Funnily enough if you do the right ones with Ash and get them to A, he can get Eliwood's paired ending pictures, which is strange when you consider that Val is Lyn's slot and Alyssa is in Ninian's slot. Fiora is Gemma, but Ash obviously doesn't support with her. There are actually tools to do it now, but IIRC it's a patch that's best applied before you've put most of the game together. As a result, it's absence will lead to some support ignorant conversations during the ending of the game., which might be slightly jarring.
  5. The rest are true, but this part isn't. The previous Emperor is dead. His backstory stuff is mostly just related to Kane and not Isaac. They have a talk conversation during the chapter that explains it a little, in addition to the stuff in the Alicia mode extra chapter. And there are many more talk conversations as well in this chapter between other characters. Like TheNiddo said though, and I'll even admit to this, there's no way you could possibly be expected to understand who Manfred is at all. Same goes for Danielle, but in her case it was more due to me not figuring out a way to get that across with the screentime she had, whereas Manfred was kind of just shoehorned in. That's part of the reason why he never even showed up until now. I think I said it before at some point, but I wanted an S rank Axe-User boss for the chapter and just did what I could with the character. And like Baby Bonnie Hood said, you only need Linda - and Thelma to be deployed to get their extra scenes at the end of the chapter. They obviously have boss convos with the units and stuff as well. Edward only has a boss dialogue though with Rydell though. Josie also has one with Danielle.
  6. Back when that village worked, it hinted at the location of the secret shop in this chapter - which was in the top right behind the burned down house, by the way. Then, all of a sudden the village conversation there started causing the game to break for some reason. Like, it caused the map to glitch and became unplayable. I never managed to figure out why and didn't get around to asking about it. It also does sell extra promotion items for characters, should you need them, so unfortunately the chance has been missed here. IIRC the only other promotion item is an Elysian Whip on chapter 19x. What Hale is referring to is the time back in Val's mode where Bran basically killed her before Ash stepped in and went over to Bran's side. And yes, Alyssa doesn't join you if Val, Ash, Alicia or Andrei visit that village. Instead of talking to her, they'll talk to a villager, who has basically been sent out instead to talk to them. You get a Goddess Icon for it. Sorry to hear about this being your last LP by the way. You wouldn't know because I was just lurking, but I did keep up with a few of the hacks that you played in your threads. I hope this one will be a good enough one to go out on for you.
  7. I'd agree with what a lot of other people are saying here about making progress. Nobody will help out a project that has nothing to show except ideas. But to throw in my own two cents on this too: If you want to generate real interest in your project, you have to make something that you personally think is impressive, even if you don't think it would be to other people. That means you really have to push through the initial phases of impatience. There are a lot of people who come onto the board trying to do exactly what you're doing and so once you've done that, people know that a lot of real effort has gone into whatever you've made. If you can do that, I can almost guarantee that it will impress at least one other person and then when that's seen by other people, they'll be more likely to want to try and get on board to help you out.
  8. Seeing that actually makes me feel bad on the inside. What kind of horrible person would make this map? Seriously though, that's actually just horrible luck. It definitely won't happen again... maybe... I think... probably. In my (weak) defense, I honestly don't rate this chapter all that highly myself. I wanted a rain chapter like any insane person would and this was it. In earlier patches- and I think one I posted on Serenes, the rain used to last longer and start earlier, so it could be worse if that makes you feel any better about it.
  9. 14 units. 3 forced units + 11 chosen. Edit: I'm gonna add this to the front page FAQ. Probably should have done it a while back.
  10. Your characters are turned out pretty good across the board, I'd say. Your Ordanze and Alicia are actually pretty standard, honestly. Your other characters just were a lot better it seems. I've never seen Val max out defence before, even with all the dragonshields you get throughout the game. I'm doing a playthrough on hard mode right now, and I wish I had a Hawke like that. He's level 15 unpromoted right now with 8 speed. (10 now that I gave him some speedwings) He definitely won't turn out like that. Pretty good set of characters here as well, I'd say. Funny that you both ended up having good Vals in the end. Gonna guess that's once again to the use of statboosters in her mode.
  11. Yeah, shining bow targets Res. It's good for units like Linda and promoted Nala against enemies with good defense, especially when their strength is looking pretty terrible. Much lighter than using something like the break bow against knights as well. Looking forward to see how the next one goes. I find that it difficulty can vary depending on a lot of things. It's probably one of the few chapters where the unit makeup you have plays a big part in how well it goes.
  12. Then yeah, I guess there's no real reason. Enjoy the free iron rune if you can be bothered to get it. Might actually be a helpful tool, especially on the final chapter in hard mode. Those berserkers, swordmasters and Luna druids can really screw you over there.
  13. She didn't really do anything in chapter 7 of particular note that they would have seen to make them remember her is the best explanation I can give. And in chapter 8, the conversation she had with Val and the others would have been private.
  14. Glad you two enjoyed it! And yeah, normal mode tends to get a little too easy in the late-game. I think Skye and Hawke are the two characters that tend to become a little too powerful for the game to handle sometimes. I've seen it in some playthroughs of the game. If you want to share your character stats, it'd be nice to see them. I don't remember all that clearly, but I think I did it because otherwise you could steal the Iron Rune and then you'd be able to get 2 S-Rank Swords, by killing him and then getting another one at the end of the chapter. If that's not an FE7 thing, or even a FE thing, then I have no idea why. Probably an oversight.
  15. Yeah that dialogue on the prep screen is what would have been the augury woman's (Hannah?) dialogue in vanilla FE7. And the levels of the enemies should start to increase, albeit very steadily, from this point onwards, so no more level 1 enemies all the time. Because I had so many enemies on some of the early chapters, (And because I was bad at balancing) I had to severely hold the enemies levels back. I never would have thought that this would be a favourite chapter of anyone's. I mean, I don't think it's awful or anything, but not a favourite either.
  16. At this rate, everyone's gonna be mentally paired with Val, aren't they?
  17. Yeah, after the second one on the first mug, I'm trying to make the hair look less straight at the back and each one just adds another little bit of an attempt at detail. Nothing else is really being changed. The maps aren't for Requiem, no. I'm currently trying to work on something new, but it's not gotten anywhere yet.
  18. Did you freeze Legato's AI or something? I thought he moves to attack you when in range and pretty much one-rounds most of your units. He at least, isn't intended to be beaten at all. Cool. I've never watched one of your LPs but I know a lot of people do, so I look forward to it.
  19. Thanks for all the advice, I really appreciate it. I had an attempt at trying to remedy some of it. Gonna guess this is better but still not quite there yet. First is the original. Second is just edits on the eyes and shading on the clothes. Third onwards are my attempts to do something about the hair disrepancy. Tried to go further each time, but hair is difficult, so I'm wondering which one I shold just leave it at for now. Fur seems difficult, so I decided to only try it on a smaller area. Chin and collar line are also fixed up a bit, I think.
  20. Not exactly what was said, but still something different, I think. Am I doing fur-like material even a little bit right though, on the second guy? I was using some other examples as a reference point but I'm not so sure if it needs more or less detail to it. As for the lady there, I'm thinking that the shading on the orangey clothing might be lacking, but I've only got two colours to work with. Gonna try something else different next, but that's all for now.
  21. I can try and give it a go, but do you have any advice on where to start, really? Would I need to start trying to custom draw some stuff, or do I need to just try and splice parts a bit more creatively instead. I do play it pretty safe when splicing, in order to keep things as neat as I can, sort of. Either way, I'm mostly doing these mugs in between the downtime of trying to make maps anyway.
  22. In this case I imagine it to be case where they're trying their best not to kill people, as opposed to Fates' way, where somehow, literally no one dies. Also, when you're against the likes of Rayden and Josie, would anyone really bother trying to fight to the death? There technically is one, I guess, but not really. But the best romances are usually the ones that aren't as clearly pointed out or platonic, at least as far as FE goes, imo. Anyway, good to see that the playthrough is going well.
  23. I didn't intend to be gone for as long as I was, but I'm back at it for now. Also picked up FE: Fates (Why was the European release so late?), so I'll be enjoying that as best I can for a while, hopefully. Intended to be some sort of prison break chapter, starting from the top left. The walling at the top is supposed to be cells, that's why the height difference is there like that, before someone asks. I'm not sure if that generally is good practice though. I didn't really have a specific purpose in mind when making this one, but I think it's turned out well enough. Probably a normal end-to-end defeat boss or rout chapter with village to protect and ruins to visit for something. I think something is off about this this one here. Either the angling of his head is off, or maybe I need to do something on his left shoulder to fix it. This one turned out better. A female knight character. Anyway, that's all for now. I'll be back with more soon.
  24. Lol, I don't know how to feel about this. I really hope someone doesn't buy this thinking it's some sort of FE universe crossover hack.
  25. Thanks. And yeah, that might be the case. Dart's head isn't really at the same angle as this guy's and I just ripped it straight from there. Not sure how to go about refitting it to a new angle, but I'll try and give it a go if I can.
