  1. The Sacred Trilogy Reskin and Rebalance Get the patches here. Apply to clean US FE8 ROM. What is it? It is a reskin and rebalance of Sacred Stones using classes and music from all 3 GBA games, a lot of new custom classes with new animations, new spells, new weapons, a skill system and many quality of life improvements made by people much more knowledgeable than me from the hacking community. Vanilla campaign was not altered, but difficulty has been slightly raised. Units also receive slightly more EXP from special actions, such as healing and dancing. All of these changes are aimed at making Sacred Stones feel fresh and more challenging, while not altering the story. This project was heavily inspired by Sir Serenes' Reskin and Seal's Sacred War hack. There are four versions, two with random growths on level up and two with fixed growths similar to FE9. Read this for more information. The difference between the two versions of the same growth is that one also features a minimug for characters, while the other doesn't. Some people may find the minimug rather intrusive, that's why I kept it optional. What was changed? Fado and Vigarde are now true kings (Zephiel) Ismaire is a blade lord (Lyn) Caellach is an armor lord (Hector) Seth has an exclusive class (Grand Paladin) Riev is a dark druid (Nergal) Hayden is removed because nobody cares about him and is replaced by Mansel, who is an archsage (Athos) Kyle is our boy (Roy - master lord). I know, unexpected Added animations to the phantoms Amelia is a soldier and can be promoted to halberdier (using knight's crest) Orson is a knight lord (Eliwood) Duessel has exclusive battle animations and map sprites Selena now has an exclusive custom class called gremory Many playable units have exclusive battle animations, even though their classes are vanilla Knights, generals, great knights and kings move 1 additional tile Ephraim and Eirika both have an alternative infantry promotion (you need to decline the promotion at the end of chapter 16 and then use lunar/solar brace for the options to appear) Trainees join you automatically promoted (Ross-pirate; Amelia-soldier; Ewan-shaman) Magic system revamped with new spells. With the exception of siege tomes, wind spells have low mt and 2-3 range. Fire spells have average stats and 1-2 range. Thunder spells have high crit and are locked to melee range. Added generic female enemy units for more diversity. It always bugged me how 99% of the women of this franchise only fight for the player. I manually edited every enemy in the game to improve them by increasing base stats, level or giving them better equipment (in a similar fashion to Seal's hack). Bosses have been buffed and are no longer a joke. Enemies also have an additional 5% growth rate in every stat. Since stealing doesn't seem to work with the new skill system, more enemies will drop items Since Valter and Glen are the only creature campaign characters to not have custom classes, I gave Glen the ability to use bows and Valter the ability to use axes Armory and shop inventories have been improved so you will have access to better weapons earlier in the game. On top of that, the preparation shop is dynamic and will offer better weapons as you progress through the game. Every ally joins your army with at least the same level of the enemies on the map. No more low-level L'Arachels joining too little too late. Some of the monsters have custom animations too. All weapons in the game only give 1 point of weapon EXP. Additionatly, unpromoted units can only reach weapon rank B. Your units will have to train hard if they want to brandish those OP legendary weapons. Units can also achieve multiple S ranks. Units gain support points by being up to 3 tiles away from each other Myrrh's dragonstone is unbreakable, but is no longer effective against monsters. It has also been nerfed so Myrrh wouldn't be too broken with unlimited dragonstone. To balance it out, her dragonstone has 1-2 range. There is also a second type of dragonstone that can be aquired in the game. Lagdou Ruins is a high-level challenge area for post-game activity. Enemies over there have better stats and powerful, exclusive weapons. The location also offers much more gold and the chest in Lagdou Ruins 10 has a 10% drop rate for each of the sacred weapons. It is possible to save the game in the Tower of Valni and Lagdou Ruins. Quality of life changes Detailed HP bars (by Circles and Zane) Skill system (by Circleseverywhere, Monkeybard, Black Mage, Blaze,Tequila, Rossendale, StanH, Leonarth, Teraspark, sd9k, Kao, blademaster, Snakey1) (the skill system also comes with the "stylish finisher" feature that makes any final blow dealt to a boss be displayed as a critical hit) Show Heal Amount (by Tequila) Map Danger Zone (by Circles) Monster Weapon Display (by Brendor) Colored stats, growth and talk display (by Tequila) Increased EXP from staves, dancing, stealing and summoning (by 7743) Gain support at various distances (by Venno) Units can act after talking or having support conversations View the support screen by pressing the L button while in the chapter status screen Summoners gain EXP when their phantoms battle Units rescued by mounted units can be dropped on the same turn Units can have up to 10 support conversations Metis' tome can be sold (useful for people playing fixed growths mode) The preparation screen shop is dynamic and will offer better weapons as you progress through the game. It follows this scheme: Tier 0 (vanilla) shop for chapters 1-2 Tier 1 shop for chapters 3-5 and tower of Valni 1-3 Tier 2 shop for chapters 6-9 and tower of Valni 4-6 Tier 3 shop for chapters 10-12 and tower of valni 7-8 Tier 4 shop for chapters 13-15 and Lagdou Ruins 1-3 Tier 5 shop for chapters 16-19 and Lagdou Ruins 4-6 Tier 6 shop for chapters 20-21x and Lagdou Ruins 7-10 The preparation shop items have the same pricing as regular shops Cool custom stat screen background (by LordGlenn) Skill list by class https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gtZiTBrDGS2pX63sCgcOZx9G2E5tiAjNtowmlcIWmPk/edit?usp=sharing Some screenshots (needs updating) Warning! This is my first FE hack, and as such, be advised that you will probably may run into bugs and unexpected behavior while playing it. I would like any bugs to be reported, but I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to fix them. This project was done using FEBuilder and with no prior hacking knowledge. Also, english is not my first language, so typos are also a possibility. Since I have not done a lot of modifications, I don't expect any crazy bugs to happen. hopefully Credits (needs updating) Our lord and savior 7743 for FEBuilder Sir Serenes for the idea and palettes for Riev TBA, Arch, Skitty and Temp for phantom animations IS, Hairyblob and Maiser6 for quicker Zephiel animations IS and Blademaster for Athos animations TR143 for fixed growth mode Temp and sniper_zero for Eliwood repalette and ranged Durandal animation Alusk for alternative soldier hover and moving animations Spud for soldier Amelia animations Spud, TBA, Black Mage, Temp and Wan for halberdier Amelia animations Brady Shinners for the animation database St jack, Seal and Sacred War for ballista animations Iscaneus and Nuramon for knight animations TBA for brigand animations Glenwing and MK404 for fighter animations SALVAGED team and flasuban for cavalier animations IS, Circles, Kao and Marlon0025 for Tethys animations Alusq and Maiser6 for mercenary animations TBA, DerTheVaporeon and Nuramon for general animations TBA and Maiser6 for berserker animations Nuramon, Swain and Temp for sniper animations Nuramon for wyvern lord animations Keks_Krebs, Peerless and SD9K for assassin animations Swain for hero animations IS and Glenwing for swordmaster animations Kenpuhu, Aruka and Nuramon for grand paladin custom class and animations Alusq for better soldier animations CamTech075, LisandraBrave, Zane, Zelix and Lord Glenn for custom icons Arkth for Deathgoyle custom animations Yangfly for kawaii blader animations Nuramon for infantry great lord Ephraim animations Teraspark, Pikmin1211 and DerTheVaporeon for dark knight animations Seal for legion, elder tarvos and gazer animations BwdYeti for elthunder animation SHYUTER for forblaze animation Blazer and Jubby for meteor animation Arch for static, wind and tornado animations Seal for tons of stuff like custom icon, map sprites, class cards and battle backgrounds. I cannot stress how awesome he is for making all of this available Klokinator for putting many custom animations and map sprites in a single, easy to find place dondon151, Sephie, Teraspark, Arch, RobertFPY and HyperGammaSpaces for many card classes and map sprites Known issues I would like help with Chapter 1, Breguet gets countered by the dead frelian mercenary. The event itself is exactly the same as vanilla, and changing character and class data for both Breguet and the frelian merc didn't work. Importing Eliwood's critical hit sound from FE7 and using it for Seth results in it conflicting with map and battle music. There seems to be a bug in Melkaen Coast skirmishes that randomly causes massive debuff to units. No idea why this happens. Get the patches here. Apply to clean US FE8 ROM. Changelog 28.03.19 Version 0.9.1 is out. Fixed Seth soundless critical animation. Fixed growths mode is also available. 29.03.19 Version 0.9.2 is out. Tuns out importing Eliwood's critical animation sound from FE7 didn't work out as intended. Due to it conflicting with the combat and map music, I decided to replace it by a native FE8 critical sound. Not an optimal solution, but I'll keep it for now (unless someone teaches me how to get Eliwood's sound to work properly). Also added weapon effectiveness against the custom classes. 29.03.19 Version 0.9.3 is out. Added custom Eliwood ranged Durandal animation for Seth (was missing in previous versions). Changed the starting inventory of creature campaign characters. Gave Riev some better weapons for late chapters. 29.03.19 Version 0.9.4 is out. You now get slightly increased EXP from using staves, dancing, stealing and summoning. Units now gain support level by being up to 3 tiles apart from each other. 30.03.19 Version 0.9.5 is out. Added new custom classes for Amelia with custom animations. She can be promoted to soldier and then halberdier (use Knight's crest). Further adjusted weapon effectiveness against the custom classes. Should work properly for every class now. Gave new skills for creature campaign characters and vanilla campaign bosses. Also fixed skills for some classes. 30.03.19 Version 0.9.6 is out. Major update. Added a TON of custom animations from the animation database. Classes with custom animations include: mercenary, hero, assassin, swordmaster, fighter, berserker, brigand, sniper, ballista, general, knight, cavalier and wyvern lord. I still need to test them though. I also remade A LOT of the palettes so the custom animations won't look off. Kyle looks much better now. Tethys can now attack with swords. Also changed her skills. 31.03.19 Version 0.9.7 is out. IMPORTANT UPDATE! I previously thought I had correctly edited the creature campaign characters, which doesn't seem to be the case. I edited them through another menu and now they all should have their custom classes and better inventory. USING PREVIOUS VERSIONS MAY RESULT IN THESE CHARACTERS HAVING THEIR VANILLA CLASSES POST-GAME. Other changes include a Mansel palette rework (it should better resemble his portrait now), a new custom class for Orson (grand paladin), and new animations for enemy soldiers. 31.03.19 Version 0.9.8 is out. Athos' palettes were very buggy, so I decided to import new ones made by Sir Serenes. Added weapon effectiveness for Orson's new class. Added some screenshots of the progress so far. 01.04.19 Version 0.9.9 is out. Selena now has a new class and custom animations. The trainees (Amelia, Ross and Ewan) now join your army already at base class 1. Ross is a pirate, Ewan is a shaman and Amelia is a soldier. This change was necessary due to hacking limitations. 02.04.19 Version 0.9.10 is out. Replaced most weapons and items icons with custom ones. 03.04.19 Version 0.9.11 is out. Monsters now have skills as well. Nothing too OP, imo. Fixed Selena's palettes. 09.04.19 Version 1.0 is out. I've done a TON of modifications with this version. I revamped the magic system of the game, added new spells, added new icons, changed Selena's class, changed the stats of some weapons, manually edited EVERY enemy of the campaign to make them stronger by improving base stats, level or changing equipment. I also reworked palettes and skills for some units. Music from FE6 and FE7 has been added. Ephraim and Eirika have new options for promotion in additional to their original ones. Amelia can be promoted to paladin again. Glen can use bows, Valter can use axes and Selena can use light. I added generic female units for more enemy diversity too. Armory and shop inventories have been improved (only acessible from world map for now). With all those changes, the entire game should feel fresh, more diverse and more challenging. 09.04.19 Version 1.1 is out. Oopsie, peg knights had 120 base hp on last version. Also corrected Ephraim's bases. 10.04.19 Version 1.2 is out. Reworked palettes for bandit bosses, Franz, Forde, Murray and Saar. Fixed a bug where Ephraim was phasing out of existence. Chapter 5x archer drops chest key again. Fixed prices for monster effective weapons. Edited chapter shops so they have the same inventory as the world map ones. I went back and buffed light tomes because I felt like I nerfed them too hard. 12.04.19 Version 1.3 is out. Reworked palettes for Seth, Orson, cavaliers and fighters. I think I'm getting the hang of it. Fixed Demon King's summons. Added custom animations for some of the monsters. Updated some of the class descriptions. Also, you guys asked for it and now Vigarde and Fado use Eckesachs animations for swords. They also look better now. 13.04.19 Version 1.4 is out. Added weapon effectiveness against Selena's exclusive class. Gerik's palettes were awful, so I made new ones. Changed the icon for elthunder. Adjusted enemy levels in Tower of Valni to be on par with the campaign. Replaced the swiftsole with a new stat booster: dragon tear. 14.04.19 Version 1.5 is out. Tower of Valni was NOT correctly edited on last patch. It gave me more work than I thought it would, but now it should be balanced out. Gave skills to Eirika's new class and reworked skills for some promoted classes that strangely only had 3. The movement of knights, generals, great knights and kings has been increased by 1. Fixed king's moving sounds so it sounds like an armored unit. 15.04.19 Version 1.6 is out. I got Seal's permission to use some of his artwork from his Sacred War project. This includes map sprites, portraits and icons, all of which I added in this new patch. I also took a trip to FE universe and found many portraits and map sprites for the custom classes and animations I've been using in this project. All of them were made free to use by the awesome people over there. I changed Selena's animations again (promise this will be the last time), so she looks way cooler now and has exclusive map sprites. 16.04.19 Version 1.7 is out. I figured out how to separate male map sprites from female map sprites of the same class. This means there is even more graphical variety for enemies now. I went and made map sprites for Eirika's new class (based off Lyn's). This was my first attempt at pixel art, so the quality is rather questionable. Added a ton of new icons and battle backgrounds made by Seal (he said they are free to use). I made Myrrh's dragonstone unbreakable and removed its monster effectiveness. This was the most voted option and what I personally wanted to do as well. I reworked skills again in order to standardize the levels in which units learn them. This was most likely the final modification I will do to them. I'm pretty satisfied with what I've done so far and this is probably the last update I will release in the near future. I will return eventually with ver 2.0 to do something regarding Lagdou ruins. For now, that location is unedited and probably unbalanced. 16.04.19 Version 1.8 is out. Alright, I now I said 1.7 would be the last version before 2.0, but I just found lots more class cards and map sprites for female units. I also changed map sprites for fighters, swordmasters, Ephraim's new class and Orson's class. Now I am satisfied. 19.04.19 Version 1.9 is out. It was brought to my attention that there was an invincible monster in Tower of Valni 5. As of this version, that is no longer the case. I made original map sprites for female summoners too. I also started editing Lagdou ruins, but since I had to release this version to addres the Tower of Valni bug, only the first 2 levels are ready. 19.04.19 Version 1.10 is out. Forgot to remove Riev and Selena from the prologue in version 1.9. 23.04.19 Version 2.0 is out. Lagdou Ruins is now open for business. There are some nasty enemies over there, so go prepared and well stocked. The chest in Lagdou Ruins 10 has a 10% chance to contain each of the sacred weapons. Enemies here will also have new, powerful weapons and spells. I reworked Riev's palettes so they better resemble his vanilla bishop portrayal. He also has a new critical animation and makes sounds when he attacks. He can also use staves now. Mansel has better sounds when he attacks. Selena cannot use light anymore, but she can use dark now. I felt like it fit her better, since she is from Grado. I made original map sprites for female wyvern knights. Berserker map sprites have been changed. Forblaze's animation has been changed so it looks more like the one from FE6. Tethys was grossly unbalanced in previous version, especially in Eirika's route. That is now fixed. I am aware of units gaining massive amounts of weapon exp upon promotion and I intend to fix this in the next version. 27.04.19 Version 2.1 is out. This version is experimental. I need to test whether Stan's patch is working properly. The campaign is only done up to chapter 8. Changes in this version include a lot of new animations and map sprites for female thieves, brigands and fighters. Myrmidon animations have been changed to the new ones. Myrrh got a taste of the nerf hammer. She is now considered a promoted unit, so she won't get tons of experience. Her dragonstone's buffs have been tuned down a little bit so she isn't so broken with unlimited uses. Would appreciate people helping me test this version. 29.04.19 Version 2.2 is out. It gave me a ton of work, but all enemies were edited again to have the duplicated classes with higher weapon ranks. Allied units retain vanilla classes with vanilla weapon ranks, so there should be no more massive weapon exp gain on promotion, while enemies can still use better weapons (God, I really hope so). I also played version 2-1 for over an hour and run into no game-breaking issues, so I think Stan's patch is working correctly. Other changes in this version include scripted melee animations for snipers using the short bow, improved palettes for most enemies, new enemy classes such as halberdiers and female heroes, pirates, thieves, fighters, rogues, brigands, knights, generals, warriors and berserkers. I also replaced the vanilla myrmidon animations with the new ones. Also included better animations for some of the skills (thanks again, Street Hero). I wonder if I'll finally be able to sit down and play my hack... 01.05.19 Version 2.3 is out. Just a quick update to include SALVAGED team's awesome and newly released custom paladin animations. I also took the opportunity to update great lord Eirika's palettes and the palettes of some enemies that were still a little bit off. Since it's just a graphical update, no worries about compatibility. 02.05.19 Version 2.4 is out. Another quick graphical update. I made better map sprites for infantry great lord Eirika and also corrected her palettes, which for some reason FEBuilder wasn't applying correctly. I also changed soldier Amelia's map sprites back to the vanilla ones, since her custom sprites were honestly not looking too hot. It is now possible to save in Tower of Valni and Lagdou Ruins. Sorry for updating so frequently, guys 03.05.19 Version 2.5 is out. Fixed a pretty serious issue where Pablo was freezing the game on Eirika's chapter 13. Also corrected the lvl 31 swordmaster on Ephraim's chapter 19. Replaced the vanilla stat screen background with a custom one made by LordGlenn. Also improved infantry great lord Eirika's map sprites again (my spritework is actually getting decent). 05.05.19 Version 2.6 is out, and I really hope it's the final version. I finally fixed the bug which caused massive weapon gains on promotion. As a side effect, many allied units join with the same weapon ranks they would in vanilla, and unpromoted units can reach a maximum rank of B now instead of C. Should make reaching rank S less grindier and more rewarding. This mean version 2.6 is incompatible with older versions, and I apologize for that. There is now a custom title screen for the hack, which is beautiful . Skills have been reworked for some units. The revenant in chapter 4 now moves like it should. Trainees have slightly better growth rates. Also, in order to fix the wepon level bug I had to standardize the level units have when they join, and this was done taking Eirika's route in consideration. This means that, for example, Gerik will appear as a lvl 13 mercenary in both routes. As a result, the allied units' levels in Ephraim's route may not be equal to the enemies' level, but the difference won't be too big. 07.05.19 Final version is out. One critical thing that was missing from previous versions were the map songs from FE6 and FE7. The final version has them. I also made exclusive map sprites for halberdier Amelia, so she no longer looks like the generic enemy halberdiers. I also added new map sprites for the king class in an effort to make them more discernible from generals. I also added the newly released knight animations from the salvaged team, along with new map sprites and class card for the knight class. Also, Ross would join at lvl 1 in version 2.6, which was rectified in the final version. The hack should have no game-breaking issues from start to finish. Save files from 2.6 should be compatible with final version, aside from Ross joining 2 levels lower if you already recruited him. 15.05.19 I had to release a quick fix to prevent a druid from freezing the game at the start of chapter 19. Please download the new version if you experience this issue. 31.05.19 Changed spell animations for elthunder and static. Corrected some cutscenes. Corrected moving sounds for enemy flier units. Units can achieve multiple S ranks. 10.07.19 Updated Orson's battle animations. Attempted to fix moving sounds yet again. Nerfed Morva. 11.07.19 Made many changes to battle animations, map sprites and weapon icons. Classes changed include fighters, bishops, clerics, priests, archers, great lord Eirika, swordmasters, berserkers, heroes and mages. 12.07.19 Pretty big update. I included several quality of life changes. Here's a breakdown: - Units can act after talking or having support conversations - It is now possible to view the support screen ny pressing the L button while in the chapter status screen - The skill system has been upgraded to the latest version - Summoners now gain EXP when their phantoms battle - Units rescued by cavalry units can be dropped on the same turn - Units can now have up to 10 support conversations (this may require a new playthorugh to take effect) - Metis' tome can be sold (useful for people playing fixed growths mode) Additionaly, I always felt like moving around the map to get good items was a major bummer. Therefore, I made some changes regarding the shop/armory: - The preparation screen shop is now dynamic and will offer better weapons as you progress through tthe game. It follows this scheme: Tier 0 (vanilla) shop for chapters 1-2 Tier 1 shop for chapters 3-5 and tower of Valni 1-3 Tier 2 shop for chapters 6-9 and tower of Valni 4-6 Tier 3 shop for chapters 10-12 and tower of valni 7-8 Tier 4 shop for chapters 13-15 and Lagdou Ruins 1-3 Tier 5 shop for chapters 16-19 and Lagdou Ruins 4-6 Tier 6 shop for chapters 20-21x and Lagdou Ruins 7-10 - The preparation shop items have the same princing as regular shops Finally, there are now 4 versions of the hack. Two versions with random growths (one with minimugs and one without) and other two with fixed growths (one with minimugs and one without). That's all for now. 18.07.19 Several changes with this one. Here's what's new: There was an enemy in Eirika's chapter 15 that was incorretly named "snag". No more. Fixed the icons for some spells. Added a new weapon: the short axe. It is basically an axe version of the short spear. Enemies will wield it and it can be bought in armories. I created and scripted a ranged critical animation for Orson. On Ephraim's route, allies will also join with the same level as the enemies on the map. Skills have been reworked. Many playable units have new personal skills, and I also changed the skills for some classes. For a complete list, check the google doc link in the description of the project. Now, base classes learn the first skill at level 8 and the second skill at level 15. Promoted classes learn the first skill at level 5 and second skill at level 12. Special classes learn the first skill at level 3, second at 8, third at 13 and fouth at 18. Enemy growth rates have been raised by 5%. They should feel a wee bit tougher now. I raised the MT of every thunder spell by 1 and decreased the MT of every wind spell by 1. They should be more balanced now. Added new animation for female rangers. Improved palettes of many playable and enemy characters. 25.07.19 Final version of the hack (I swear it this time). I've been working on this for far longer than I originally intended, and I am proud of what I've done. This is the last planned version of the hack, so bear with me for one last update. Interestingly, I finished it just one day before Three Houses lol. What's new: Skills were still missing from enemy soldiers, female mages and berserkers on the previous version. My fault, but it has been fixed. I figured out how to include passive boosters in the game. These items will improve stats just by beign held by characters. They are rare, often wielded by bosses and the only way to get these are through drops and random chests. Better description for some weapons. Reworked inventory for some bosses, due to the passive boosters Unique animations for unmounted great lord Eirika and Ephraim when they wield Sieglinde and Siegmund. 17.08.19 I broke my promise and released a new version *sigh*. Gonna stop promising a final version, because there always seems to be something left that can still be improved. Anyway, added a ton of new battle animations. Many playable units will have exclusive animations, even though their classes are still the same. Updated the icons for some weapons and items. Myrrh's dragonstone now has 1-2 range and there is a second dragonstone that can be obtained in the game. 18.08.19 The status ailment bug is gone. Also removed Innes from the prologue and corrected some minor things. 20.08.19 Fixed a bug that would cause the short axe to softlock the game. Also removed the "Boon" skill from Myrrh's learnset and replaced Fado's personal skill. New animations for the male brigand. Get the patches here. Apply to clean US FE8 ROM.
  2. Heya, it's my first post in the forums so apologies if I do anything wrong. Basically I would like to get around the issue of the party change from Eirika to Ephraim (in chapter 5x), in that the supply convoy and money are both separate. I have a handful of weapon drops etc, and would like for them to not be stuck in an inaccessible convoy for a while should the players inventory get full. I tried to find this amongst the forums but to no avail. While I'm on the topic, I haven't gotten further than 5x yet, but can I assume there are some common difficulties in the party split later on (when you choose Eirika/Ephraim route) or is it quite simple? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time ~
  3. tl;dr This is an FE8 hack. Version 4.1 released 7/26/2019 First release notes and DL below. READ THE README AND CREDITS!!!!! Recruitment guide: The Sun God's Wrath(SGW) is the new version of the old sequel to a previous hack I made(Corrupt Theocracy (CT)), The Sun God's Challenge(SGC). This is a FE8 hack that features a variety of new features, most notably skills, some third tiers, new classes, and of course new maps, mugs, characters, events, and music (though because of CT some older versions of characters still use mugs like the ones they used back then for continuity reasons). If by some odd chance you have an old .sav of SGC, this hack won't work with it due to the fact that this hack is pretty much remade. This hack is being designed so that having played CT is in no way a requirement. I don't recommend playing CT and instead recommend reading TheMoniker's awesome LP found here: http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=50956 if you are really curious about it and would like a potentially heightened experience while playing this hack. History is written by the winners, and there were various winners in CT, so part of the story is learning what really happened in CT anyway since there are conflicting accounts. Story: Like CT, SGW features many protagonist characters with varying degrees of importance, but there will be less/more mixed up game over conditions unlike in CT. The lead protagonist/Donovan of this hack is Astrea, a member of Propater, pictured below. The story will have you follow her and the people she meets as you do your part in trying to save the world. How Astrea manages to be a key figure among the various figures of importance you will come to meet will be made more clear over time. Screens: Check list: Credits (Please read)
  4. Hello SF! After much time in the shade, I’m here to announce my project. Fire Emblem: Souls of the Forest is a gameplay focused hack made with FEBuilder that I’ve been developing since around late 2017, and now I feel like it’s a good time to make a public release. I’ve done changes on this project which I feel modify the vanilla FE gameplay to give the game it’s own unique, yet not cluttered, experience. The hack features: Three difficulties and many custom gameplay options, such as 100% Criticals, Fixed growths, Reverse mode, and many more. Lunatic Reverse is the intended mode for those seeking a tough game, but Normal and Hard are also avaliable, and the modifiers are completely optional. 16 chapters and 3 sidequests, the first 8 chapters and 1 sidequest have writing in them. 27 playable characters, all with custom portraits. The standard quality of life hacks, such as warnings for effective/killer weapons, HP bars, growth rate display, etc. Classes each only have access to one weapon type, but weapon triangle power is greatly increased. Bows have 2-3 range as standard. Mounted units have a bit less move in general, but possess Canto+. Custom art mostly made by myself, or obtained from the Ultimate Graphics Repository. Almost entirely custom music. Strong emphasis on weapon types and class individuality. Master Seals as the sole promotion item. No ambush spawns. Generic replacement units that join if you lose enough units. There’s supports, they increase based on deployment, similar to games like Path of Radiance and New Mystery, but there’s no writing done on them yet. Specific gameplay changes can be read in the diary that the game has.

  5. Once again I find myself needing assistance. In the Pick Units screen in the preparations menu, every unit is available except for my main "lord" character. The units appears in the support menu, but I can't deploy them since I cannot select them to deploy. I'm honestly out of ideas as to what's the problem. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

  7. Tierlists can be a really controversial thing, but I just felt like sharing my opinion on this game's ranking and discussing it. I'll be assuming that Seth is not being (ab)used and grinding is not allowed. Tier Explanations: The names inside the () indicates the Road Taken by the player. The Units are ranked within the seperate tiers... kind of.

  8. So I'm working on a ROM Hack and I'm working on Chapter 2. When I test it on my emulator it always bugs out when it reaches the highlighted part of the running event, this event occurs after the chapter title screen. I played vanilla Sacred Stones on the emulator and this event doesn't even pop up. Another thing I should mention is the map I'm using was originally FE8's chapter 12 map. I just copied the map and redrew it. While it did have an inn, arena, and armory I removed their tiles. Anybody know what the problem is?
  9. TL;DR: Google Drive link to ups patches (patches for FE8U!!!) Are you tired of waiting for FE Switch news? Do you want to escape from the bridal Sanaki controversy? Do you need a break from shitposting on reddit? Look no further than this thread! A little over a year ago, I delved into the vast and scary world of GBA Fire Emblem romhacking. Today, I'm very happy to announce that my pet project, Fire Emblem: Heaven's Bloom, is complete and playable from start to finish. Features: 19 chapters (inc. prologue and endgame) patches for both easy and hard mode the FE8 skill system, courtesy of circleseverywhere a character-focused story which takes itself seriously 37 unique support chains w/paired endings for some original map, battle, & boss music, and some original cutscene music (was planning to replace everything with my own but I'm not a composer ;_; might finish this in the future) The story begins in the Kingdom of Adestria. Hundreds of years ago, Humans competed for survival with magically gifted beings known as 'Fae'. Over time, a breed of 'Half-Bloods' emerged, descended from parents of each race. The Half-Bloods chose to ally themselves with the weaker Humans, and the Fae were destroyed. The Half-Bloods then turned on the humans, using the powers of their Fae blood to subjugate and enslave their magically-inert cousins. A little over a hundred years have passed since the subjugation. Our main characters are two Half-Bloods: Lord Cassius Malberry and his sister, Fordra. Hoping to find the cure for a horrible disease, they hunt for an ancient Fae tome... The story is not deliberately edgy, but fair warning: it does involve some mature topics such as racism, (off-screen) child abuse, and (off-screen) torture. Gameplay-wise, I tried to live by two main philosophies: 1. Give players lots of choices when building their strategy - All promotion items are master seals, so players may promote their characters in any order. Since FE8 was used as a base, branching promotions work as expected. Shops throughout the game usually stock large varieties of strong weapons, earlier than one might expect. Most maps have multiple avenues of approach. Finally, one of the main characters is a staff user with very high magic, and staves such as sleep and silence have had their durability increased, allowing players to make much more liberal use of these dynamic options. 2. Encourage players to use all characters. Some support chains are fairly significant to the development of the world or the backstory, and I didn't want these being missed on the bench. Playable characters tend towards higher bases and lower growths, so it's harder to train a single monstrous juggernaut, and characters can remain relevant even if their exp distribution isn't being constantly watched. Further, the deployment limit is high enough that benching characters isn't necessary. Regarding difficulty, I honestly have no idea how hard or easy this game would be considered relative to other FE games. My perception is skewed after playtesting it so much and learning the optimal strats for everything. Easy mode reduces enemy bulk across the board (hp, def, res, and spd), reduces all stats of enemy bosses, and removes skills from some enemies. I would definitely recommend Easy for FE beginners or people who have only played SS/PoR. You can always replay it on Hard mode later Known/reported glitches: If you encounter any more glitches, please inform me so that I can look into them! Easiest way to contact me would probably be a DM on twitter (@EAA_Len) or reddit (/u/Roosterton). I admit to not checking these forums as often as I should, but I will probably be checking this thread for a few weeks at least.

  10. So a friend and I are making a hack and in that process, we thought of some OP weapons that we wanted to make difficult to get, and so we wanted to put a level requirement on them like "Pale Flower of Darkness" or "Four Fanged Offensive" in Fe7, and couldn't figure out how to do so. If anybody knows how to do that, or at least knows if it is impossible in FEBuilder GBA, any help would be appreciated.
  11. What is Fire Emblem: Dawn of Dusk? Fire Emblem: Dawn of Dusk is an FE8 rom-hack I've been working on for the past couple of months. It's heavily influenced by FE4, from the graphics to the gameplay! If you're interested in helping, DM me on Twitter! (Link below) Story February 27th, Year 891, Belmisian Calender The dukedom of Fals is destroyed by unknown invaders. The Duke and his family are thought to be dead, except, unknown to all the denizens of Belmise, one survived. Clovis von Fals, son of Duke Vidar von Fals, runs in the dark night, hoping to reach his cousin's duchy to seek aid. In a nearby village, a seer and their band of allies awake to find a royal-looking man fighting against an army. Coming here due to a vision, they believe they've finally found the one they're looking for; the one who will help change the future. Features Dismounting/Mounting: With mounted units, you can make them dismount from their mounts! This can get rid of their weaknesses while adding new ones! Avatar (Shilo): You can play as yourself (if you wish) in the game! The avatar's portrait is made to be gender neutral so you can decide who you are! You can input your own name*, or go with the generic name, Shilo. Skills: Like most modern FE games, there are skills! Each unit gets a personal skill and each class has their own too! New and Old Classes: Many older classes return in this game, most of them from Genealogy of the Holy War! There are also newer ones and three-tiered promotions!

  12. Who am I? Hello there I am DotDotDot, I'm a poor college student that has been trying to make my own fan game(Originally a Pokemon one) since middle school. I've worked on this to big chunks. I first started working on this during my Senior year of high school before burnout hit me hard and I stopped. The second chunk was recently were while watching Mangs LP a hack gave me a second wind to finally finish my hack and here we are! I hope you enjoy and do run into too many bugs or glitches I forgot about from the first chunk. What is this? This is a short 8 chapter(counted prologue and Final) Hack of Fire Emblem 8 I made to gain experience with FEBuilderGBA and with hacking in general. Originally I was gonna make my dream hack I've always wanted to make and I even made a full chapter and some portraits(some of which I repurposed for this hack) but, I decided not to continue because I didn't want to get burnout making a long hack by myself (Which in the end didn't help because I started this hack about a year ago and then stop for like 5 months or so because I still got burnout, whops). I decided to go with an idea I had for a while of playing as the bandits of a fire emblem game were the bandits somehow manage to win! The Pitch! Have you ever wanted to be a bandit? Going around pillaging villages for all their goods, killing helpless villagers that are just trying to save their family, using almost exclusively axes! Well, now you can in Fire Emblem Barry's Bandits! Features: Screenshots Download Fire Emblem Barry's Bandits Bugs/Spelling Errors/Notes/etc Credits
  13. I remember seeing a patch for one of the GBA games that changed UI things, maybe even added the enemy attack range overlay from later games, to make it more convenient to play if you've got used to the modern games. Am I just imagining things, or does such a thing exist?
  14. Hi all! I posted a little under a week ago requesting a portriat of Fom and Fire Dragon. I've realized, at least with the latter, it'd be a lot of work for free. So, as I said with last post, I'd like a portrait of Fomortiis and the Fire Dragon that are like regular portraits (with talking, blinking, mini, etc.). I'm open to whatever prices y'all want since I've never commissioned GBA portraits!
  15. In my last casual playthrough of FE7, I couldn't stand the dialogue font. Far too tall for how thin it is. With my experience messing around with roms over the years, I decided I could fix it myself. This is a personal QOL hack I made for myself, but I figured sharing it with others would be a great service. I started off by importing Sacred Stones' font. Unfortunately, I then discovered what a typographical nightmare that font is. Irregular x-heights make reading very uncomfortable, especially as a fast reader. So I made several edits to make it more palatable. Dialogue font x-heights have been normalized. The lowercase "y" is less thin. Menu fonts are also slightly modified and have had x-heights normalized. The lowercase "t" is taller. As I created it for my casual playthrough, I was able to playtest it from start to finish (Lyn Normal -> Eliwood Normal) with no issues. Here are some screenshots: FE7 Font Revamp v1.0.ips (Apply to a US FE7 ROM) Of course, I wasn't done there: there were still two other Fire Emblem games I've yet to play that feature the same crappy fonts. Well, I'm glad to announce that I have font patches available for both Sacred Stones and Binding Blade! I haven't had the chance to test either of these to a great extent, so let me know if you come across any problems. FE8 Font Revamp v1.0.ips (Apply to a US FE8 ROM) FE6 Font Revamp + Text Crawls v1.0.xdelta (Apply to Gringe's FE6 Translation v1.0) The following patch works on both the current fantranslation and the old one. It's missing text crawls, but it is functional. FE6 Font Revamp v1.0.ips (Apply to any English-patched FE6 ROM) Because this hack only modifies font graphics, almost all romhacks should be compatible! If you would like to use these font modifications in your own romhacks, feel free to do so! Credit is highly appreciated, but not necessary. Explicit permission is not needed, but I'd love to hear if you're planning on using these. I hope you are able to get as much out of these as I have!
  16. I made dis. I don't know if people still play this but if you have ideas to improve it, or find any bugs or it's hard to use tell me. Requires Cheat Engine, VBAM (or similar), any FE GBA ROM (all regions seem to work). 1. Open Rom 2. Load chapter 3. Open CE and attach to vbam (the glowing icon) 4. Load table 5. Start enabling things with mouse or space and open submenus with arrow keys, space or mouse.

  17. Hiya friends! I haven't been here in a while, but replaying FE8 has made me want to create something for myself that might be a bit of a stretch, but alas, here I am I wanted to modify my FE8 game to have all of the characters from FE7 and FE6 as well, and possibly even include various boss units. This is just to make the post game more fun for me, as I love seeing how my units grow, as well as using varying teams in post game combat. I'm fairly confident that I can insert the battle animations I'd need, Portraits, new Text, etc using Feditor, since I've done it many times before. I'm also fairly confident I can use Nightmare where necessary, and I'm pretty sure I have all of the necessary Modules and tools (I have a hex editor as well if needed.) Here's where the problems come in: Last time I attempted to do something like this, I learned that FE8 has a unit cap of I believe it was 63 characters. Adding anymore begins to overwrite character slots instead of adding new ones. Furthermore, trying to add in new palettes in values after the pre existing palettes doesn't appear to work. I'm not sure if that's because there's a hex string I'd need to modify in order to increase how many palettes are in the game, or maybe something else. But when I tried inserting a palette over a pre existing palette, it worked fine. So I'm not sure exactly what to do in that scenario. I also was interested in potentially playing with Stat caps, but the only one that seems difficult to modify is HP. For some reason, no matter how much I try, I can never get it to go above 60. I'm not too picky about this, since I intend to first roll with the base growths/max stats for each character. But I'd be interested in trying to change it in the future Any help or information is appreciated, and I know that this might seem kinda selfish since this is a mod literally for my own enjoyment rather than for the use of other people. But I'm not sure where else to go in order to find this information Many thanks, Jeremy
  18. Hi! Would anyone happen to be willing to do up a Fomortiis and Fire Dragon portrait? Like the normal portraits I mean. (With talking, mini, etc.) I hope they aren't too difficult since they're kind of already existing just in a different format. (I really know little to nothing about Portraits)
  19. Hey all, newbie hacker here with a question about FEBuilder by 7743. I recently started using it with no prior knowledge about FE hacking whatsoever and I already found out that I cannot include any new classes above the original value of 128 without crashing everything. Since that is the case, I would like to ask the veterans around here if there is a list of the classes that are unused by the vanilla game that I can safely modify without messing up the vanilla campaign. I am asking specifically for FE8, but if someone knows one for FE7 or FE6 it would also be appreciated.
  20. Hello everyone and welcome to my play through of fire emblem 8 randomized just so you know this is taking heavy inspiration from the monikers old lets plays on this site i am using the fire emblem 8 self randomizer made by circles everywhere but thats enough talk lets get started prologue prelude eirika is bad thats all for this update next time we start playing the game
  21. Hello, I have just joined these forums and I have some questions that I'd like to ask of the good users in the forest. I am in the idea phase for a fan game and have been working on it very slowly for a few years, and it may never be complete due to my incompetence when it comes to learning how to code and stuff like that. My first question is in the title: Geneology, Awakening, or Fates. Which has the better system of Inheritance? For Context the fan game takes place 20 years after Binding Blade and Sacred Stones, and feature the children of the characters from those games. I want to use the Inheritance system to help me build the characters' base stats and growths. I am willing to provide any information needed to help answer my questions.
  22. So, as the title might suggest, I'm experiencing a problem with the patch that allows to add skills into FE8: since I enabled it, my thief (15 Speed) can't seem to steal an item from an enemy (4 Speed). I tried with a personal skill, without it, even with double Cunning. Any idea or suggestion? (Also, is it the right section to ask this in?)
  23. Hello everyone, so I've recently been working on a remake of fe6. Basically fe6 ported to fe8. I'd like to think your opinion about it. This project will include; -Better text -QoF patch (even though I'd love to have more mechanics like a strength and magic split) -Display all weapons patch -more weapons (like Noble Rapier etc.) -Blinking frames for the portraits and recoloured and lastly! -nothing here have some screenshots
  24. i'm trying to make a custom weapon (an anima tome) using the excess space in the item table - which worked fine, the weapon is there and with the appropriate stats, name, descrip, and stuff. so i go to the Custom Item Animation list module for Nightmare to give it an animation and nothing is working. i've tried giving other pre-existing items different animations too and nothing works. i've only been working with this stuff a few days so i feel like i gotta assume i'm stupidly missing something. nevermind, found out how to do it in FeBuilder
  25. Hi, Sorry for posting nearly the same topic as yesterday but I think it wasn't in the good section and I have taken my concept further and am currently testing the results. Yesterday I came with an idea to balance weapons. I was wondering if anyone would enjoy a FE 8 mod with swords draining hp, 1 range axes ignoring def, and what you would give to lances and bows (currently lances give +4 lck, +2 def and +1 res), while bows have 3 more might, light is effective against monsters (no need to wait for promotion anymore), anima is buffed (+1 might), dark didn't change much, and tomes' weight has been adjusted to fit their users' constitution. The idea is that most sword users aren't very tanky but very fast. If they could drain hp, be they tanky or not, they would be much more usable and wouldn't need access to 1-2 range weapons to be useful. Fast units would drain 2x per fight but take damage if they don't dodge, while slow units would heal back some damage but only once per fight. I intend on balancing the classes and making the ennemies more of what they should be (like in Awakening I guess, they fit much more their roles than in TSS IMHO, especially knights, axemen and mages/dark mages). Lances' bonus stats make them able to reduce crit chance, to take easier the swords' hits so the drain isn't OP, while +1 res helps a little without being gamechanging. Bows don't hit at 1 range so I gave them more poke damage to make archery more useful for what they're supposed to do (the counterpart for 3 MT is 15 hit, a little like Yumi). I gave 30 weight to 1-2 range physical weapons so you only use them situationally (if I give them a speed penalty it would affect more the already slow units than the fast ones, + negative stats tend to bug and show max stat instead so it's the opposite of what I want). It's a good point for me so general Gilliam is as fast as Paladin Franz with a javelin (0-5 spd hoho). Special weapons weren't modified (rapier doesn't drain, don't expect to get back to full hp in one hit on a sword-wielding cavalier, neither does hammer deal true damage, I think it deals enough already). Trainee axe is 1 range, low MT, high accuracy and unbreakable, like short sword and lance, short bow is 2 range, low MT, high acc and unbreakable. These weapons apply the weapon balance treatment so your 8 damage lv 1 Ross will have 8 true damage on any ennemy axcept lance users (9 damage) and sword users (7 damage). Thin lance comes with the tank buff (enjoy your finally able pegasi, including ennemies) and thin sword drains hp. No crit bonus for short weapons. This means trainees can pull their weight even if they can't attack from 1-2 range before D rank (throwing weapons are D rank like in FE13, steel axe is also fixed to D rank, I don't see the reason for making a steel weapon E rank and not the other ones, might as well put everyone to D at base) because their weapons are better and their class stats have been improved a bit (not their growths though). Tana is a Wyvern Rider (female, yes they exist in the code, and unlike female mercenaries, they have custom animations, just like female shamans and sorcerers), Syrene has a little more base stats and completely different growths (tank falcon knight FTW! Palla is back even better than the original!) and weapon ranks on 2nd tier and some stat caps have been made more logical according to their roles in FE8. Magic classes, sages trade mag for spd, sorcerer is better, mage knight and valkyries are more similar in stats to paladins, magic classes base stats have been twisted to fit more their goal. Manakete is less cheated but lasts the whole game when you finally get Myrrh (unbreakable nerfed Dragonstone, again more like Awakening but 1 range only), she has base stats close to Seth's so it won't be an all in fiesta like it used to be at level 1 against cavaliers with Myrrh in chapter 16 but she has more HP (also this means she can take an axe hit from a promoted unit without dying), growths more spread but less OP (very few >100%, most are between 70 and 90, be careful, 12 spd 40% growth! you might keep a speedwing if you want her to double promoted ennemies!) and stat caps are the same as Necromancer (25 spd, 30 everything else) not OP since axe go through def, so does necrodragon's breath and dragonstone has 8 MT (with capped str it means 43 damage, less than regular silver weapons, only some ennemies not wielding axes will not deal much damage to maxed 35 def but it's not like she will cap it at all times in 19 level ups...right? Myrrh should be very close to cap def though if you max her level, but rarely doubles, doesn't necessarily OHKO, and true damage is abundant in axe maps). Great knight has 7 move, , archers have more skl to make up for usual shitty archers, mercenaries are closer to heroes in stat spread (less spd, more def and str) or you could say they are closer to cavaliers with actual skl, female lord has more def, 1 con bonus, male lord was nerfed a little in the speed department cuz Ephraim before promotion was a little too OP compared with Eirika at the same level, and Great lords have better con and stat caps because you wait 16 chapters to make them promote and they're both forced into the endgame chapters. Wyverns lords and knights are more distinct (I took their archetypes from FE13 wyvern lords and griffon lords, because I thought it suited well to the FE8 wyvern concepts), mounted/flying females and males have equal con because it's more the mount's weight than the person's that it taken into count, con overall is more fit to the class it's linked to. Swordmasters trade defensive stats for offensive, assassins have more str than swordmasters but thei def/res cp is still 20 (promotion bonus more offensive for assassins while more defensive as it used to be for swordmasters) and assassins have rogue's exp gain. 200 gold for unreakable weapons, 220 for unbreakable tomes, 10 per use for iron weapons, 20 for steel, 50 for silver, 45 for killer, shamshir is the exception at 60 or 65 because it's killer+drain with lower MT, add 2 gold to these to get the tomes' price per use, staves are globally cheaper. Low rank gems are worth more than they used to, because there's a special surprise in the preparations' armoury and it costs much (even if I lowered the price, being in preparations' armoury automatically makes it cost more gold). Because I didn't like the absence of choice with this point, I made you able to choose if you want to spend that amount of gold for this or if you're patient. It's also a way for farmers to get what they want without waiting to have cleared 70% of the game to have their full team able (and the ones drawn back by this can finally be played in the main story). Would it be funny to play? Would axes having a real utility make you use axemen? (-1 mt +5 hit for axes BTW) Do the effects I gave to lances, bows, magic types appeal to you? Tell me if something would be funnier than what I wrote. I'm open to discussion and I don't think I did the best I could do, there's always room for improvements. After all, it's been 2 years at least that I began to make Nightmare mods and I'm still not perfectly satisfied, maybe I have too many different concepts in mind so I will never stop making new mods and spending hours on Nightmare. Other people learned to use better programs but I'm not a fan of the difficulty to learn these programs although they seem to allow many nice things like skills, randomizing, modifying or creating characters, creating maps and stories etc. If you want to try it and see, here's the link (Lunar IPS patch, apply it to a clean ROM, I used the (U) Trash Man ROM to patch): https://www.dropbox.com/s/6nfofzdikxkxqop/FE 8 drain sword true damage axes version.ips?dl=0
