  1. I just finished Eirika's route, after playing a bit over half around 8 months ago, then picking it up again this month. I really enjoyed the game, but is Ephraim's route that different or more difficult than Eirika's? As much as I liked it, the only enemies who gave me any trouble at all were the endgame manaketes and Lyon. I didn't finish with everything I wanted, either, as I barely got any supports before I got stuck in the endgame. I also just bought FE7, but I'm not sure whether I should just start playing that or to start Ephraim's route. Is the game worth playing again immediately after beating Eirika's route, or should I wait a while?
  2. So who should I focus on. Like who are the best units that i should put time into. I heard that both joshua and marissa are good gerik and Ephraim too.
  3. I want to insert several animations in all the GBA games but keep running into a problem. I've followed the steps in the animation thread for insertion, but I can't get the game to run afterward or worse. the game crashes when any battle takes place. Here are the steps I took: Open FE Editor Render Edition, go to Class Manager and up the max index by the number of animations I intend to put in, proceed to put in said animations then add the correct information in hex for the classes. If I try to replace existing animations it either freezes up or says something along the lines of using too many editors at once. The animations I'm trying to add/replace are as follows: FE Binding Blade: Thief, Thief F, Pegasus Knight, Falcon Knight, Yetizerker, Lalum w/ Staff, Elphin w/ Magic, Wyvern Lord w/Axes, Soldier Reworked, General FE Blazing Sword: Thief, Thief F, Pegasus Knight, Falcon Knight, Yetizerker, Ninian w/ Staff, Nils w/ Staff, Wyvern Lord w/Axes, Soldier Reworked, General, Knight Lord, Hector Lord/ Great Lord FE Sacred Stones: Thief, Thief F, Pegasus Knight, Falcon Knight, Hawkzerker, Tethys w/ Staff, Druidmancer, Wyvern Lord w/Axes, Soldier Reworked, General, Great Knight, Female Assassin I've tried looking through lots of threads to see if a similar problem was reported but I came up empty. Any push in the right direction would be appreciated!

  5. im ultra and here im going to put down come concepts for a around 10 chapter hack which i call "Fire emblem Terraform" now this is the first hack im working on in over 4 years and thus i am incredibly rusty with just about anything regarding hacks, let alone fire emblem hacks so please bare with me and i will take all Criticism. This is a hack of Fe8 Specifically for the monster classes and world map Plot in the continent known as Terran Humans and Monsters Co-existed as Equals and lived in peace for thousands of years, however due to the Monstrous appearance of the Monsters the Humans attacked them after a great battle to decided the war both sides came to an agreement. Terran would be Divided into 6 Kingdoms Separating the humans and monsters into 3 kingdoms each. the human kingdoms Vitcoln, Colay, and Luno and the monster kingdoms Sullioe, Embol, and Terraleo. Peace Reigned once again. one day the human kingdom of Vitcoln launches an attack on the Neighboring Monster kingdom of Embol. the Vitcoln Prince Mike Learns about his fathers intentions to attack Embol and Flees the Vitcoln Castle with childhood friend Rix, and Monster guardian Yevelt. they flee to form an Alliance to stop the inevitable War. this is their story Progress Dialogue for the prologue has been Written the Lords Mike (Bow)Lord Growths: Hp: 70 Str: 80 Skl: 80 Spd: 60 Lck: 10 Def: 40 Res: 40 Rix (Light magic)Lord Growths: Hp: 70 Mag: 60 Skl: 100 Spd: 50 Lck: 40 Def: 10 Res: 50 here is what is planned: - a ton of new classes with new animations - updated Animations for old classes - Making bow users actually good - some sub par at best map design - around 10 chapters - around(hopefully) 18 playable characters - uhhh Moral Grey plot??? i will Cross out the ones that are done i will be sure to update this when more progress is done on this Tragic story, Tragically im sure
  6. i started messing around with the nightmare editor and i was wondering if i could equip certain item to certain character for example lets say i want to give erika the mani katti (i know she cant use it) but could i do it from the item editor
  7. Does anybody know of a DESCRIPTIVE TUTORIAL on how to put in custom music in fe8? And how does it work? Can I put in ANY SONG from anywhere? If so how? Please be very descriptive, I have no clue how this is done and I really want to put all kinds of music in my game. Thanks for listening.
  8. Does anybody know how in fe8 eventing, I can make like a kind of "if" event. in other words, an event that is triggered only if something specific happened or happens. an example would be: if a specific character dies, then a unit warps in and gives You an ítem. which the ítem part i know just not how To trigger it ONLY if a specific character dies. thanks...
  9. Ok, so I know that this: FIG1 attacker defender 0x0 starts a normal fight... You just put the character ids in and the characters have a normal fight. But does anybody know what I need to do, If I wanted two specific units to do exactly what i want? By that I mean, get them to do criticals, automatically miss, sureshot, pierce, etc. Thank you....
  10. I'm relatively new to nightmare and how to use it effectively, i figured i'd preface this because it might be a simple fix. I was curious as to how i could edit Eirika's base class to be a mage so the Recolor i did of her palette could put inserted. Even if i can't edit her (if it messes up the game a little too much she can just deal) some other characters like Gilliam for example don't have an option to be changed to a social knight (what he randomized into). Franz on the other hand i can change into a myrmidon for his base class so changing his colors should be easy. Am i missing something obvious? or is it more complex? I'm going to apologize ahead of time if this has been solved before and i just didn't find it in the 5 pages of searching i did. Edit: I'm dumb my bad, you can't scroll when its engaged but if you just have it as regular you can scroll when its not open
  11. Heya! So I was noticing that there are a bunch of "Unknown (Zero)" variables present in the character data blocks, and I was curious; does altering those screw anything up? The real question here being, could I repurpose them into something else, like, say, additional stats, weapon levels, growth rates, etc.? I realize doing so would require ASM modifications to be done elsewhere to make it work, but if it is possible, that'd be super cool and open up some awesome new possibilities.
  12. Here's the first hack which I'm currently working on. For simplicity, I decided to start with a difficulty hack to improve the gameplay of FE8. The aim of the hack is to ramp up Sacred Stone's difficulty via map design changes and enemy weapon/stat upgrades. In particular: -Enemy weapons scale very quickly -Enemies have high offensive stats -Weapon hit rates in general have been greatly improved (Hard mode enemies also get bonus +15 Hit) -Enemy AI/placement changes to prevent bait and kill tactics in some maps -Anti-turtling added to some maps in the form of thieves w/ chests/villages and reinforcement spawning (no ambush) -Player units also have their bases and growth rates buffed (except for Seth, who got a nerf to his bases but a buff to his growths nonetheless) -Better weapons are made available to the players a lot earlier via shop updates -All promotion item drops have been replaced with Master Seals -More stat boosters are dropped, obtained in the early game Hard mode is recommended. Though there do exist some differences between Normal and Hard (i.e. reinforcement timings and additional enemies on Hard), Normal is not properly balanced right now since some chapters are the same as Hard while others, especially the first few chapters, are a lot easier (also Normal was not tested). Dropbox Download Link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/djolyst8u86t2gr/AACpWjp2tcQzKswGBg542ttMa Apply the patch to an English FE8 ROM. Change log is provided for download in the link above. Sample Gameplay (Prologue ~ Chapter 1): Some small features added to the hack: -Addition of weapon rank bonus (thanks to Vennobennu's patch) -Hard mode enemy Hit bonus (Vennobennu's patch) -DS style supports - bonuses are added once at the beginning of the chapter - see change log for the chapters required to build support rank (thanks again to Vennobennu) -Fixed enemy stationary range display (credit to circleseverywhere) -Danger zone toggle, use select key by default (credit to circleseverywhere) Current progress: Prologue ~ Chapter 8 has been done Have a try and please leave a feedback :) Also, feel free to suggest a name for this hack! I'm very uncreative :( Screenshots:
  13. This guide assumes you are already familiar with the basics of hacking Introduction So there's not really a big post on how to do FE8 eventing (like Arch's super great guide for FE7), and that kinda sucks for people who want to hack FE8 because there's far less resources immediately available for them to use. It's uh, going to be a hell of a WIP until everything is properly covered. But the general idea is to have a resource similar to Arch's chapter construction guide except focused on FE8. I figured as one of the few people hacking FE8 right now I'd try to share some of my knowledge with anyone looking to get into FE8 hacking. That being said, I probably forgot a bunch of stuff so if there's something missing that you want to know about, leave a comment here and let me know. So, before it starts, here's what you'd need: Nintendlord's Event Assembler (current version is v10.1) Tiled and the Tiled map inserter A hex editor (such as HxD, but any hex editor should be fine) Since FEditor a shit, I recommend learning the MAKEHACK.cmd method outlined in this FEE3 tech demo: FE8 Nightmare modules for use with nmm2csv FE8 Eventiel DON'T USE THIS TO BUILD EVENTS, JUST USE IT FOR HELP WITH CAMERA STUFF AND MAP THINGS. An FE8(U) ROM Event file template Free space can be found from b2a610-c00000, as well as the end of the ROM Useful Information This stuff isn't strictly eventing related but is nonetheless helpful to know. Apply this patch to your ROM before you start working, it contains a bunch of essential fixes for FE8 Table of Contents 1. Key Concepts 2. Handling Units 3. The Event Arrays 4. Scene Construction 5. Inserting Maps/Tile Changes 6. More Codes 7. Conditions 8. ASM Condtions/Effects 9. The World Map 10. Misc Info 11. Epilogue And much like Arch's tutorial, this isn't designed to explain basic terminology for ROMHacking and eventing shouldn't be the first thing you try when you want to hack FE.
  14. Please somebody help me out: I have here events for chapter 1: #include EAstdlib.event EventPointerTable(0x0A,ThisChapter) ORG 0xE80000 ThisChapter: POIN TurnBasedEvents POIN CharacterBasedEvents POIN LocationBasedEvents POIN MiscBasedEvents POIN Dunno Dunno Dunno POIN Tutorial POIN TrapData TrapData POIN Units Units POIN $0 $0 $0 $0 $0 $0 POIN BeginningScene EndingScene Units: UNIT 0x42 0x07 0x42 Level(2, NPC, 1) [2,2] 0x00 0x00 0x0 0x00 [0x04, 0x6C] NoAI UNIT TurnBasedEvents: END_MAIN CharacterBasedEvents: END_MAIN LocationBasedEvents: END_MAIN MiscBasedEvents: CauseGameOverIfLordDies END_MAIN Dunno: //DO NOT TOUCH WORD $00 Tutorial: //DO NOT TOUCH WORD $00 TrapData: END_MAIN ALIGN 4 BeginningScene: MUS1 0x06 _0x0E22 0x28 _LOAD1 0x1 Units ENUN MOVE 0x42 [4, 5] ENUN CUMO 0x42 STAL 60 CURE TEXTSHOW 0x90B TEXTEND REMA ENDA EndingScene: ENDA // Events // Manual Movement // Scripted Fights // Units // Shop Data MESSAGE Events end at offset currentOffset The problem is, as soon as it gets to showing the text...it freezes.

But just for changing the portrait, like so: [OpenMidLeft][LoadFace][0x45][0x01][OpenMidLeft]Ahhh[ToggleMouthMove]...[.][ToggleMouthMove][A][0x02] No![.][A][X] The game freezes completely. Does anybody know why? Thanks for listening...
  15. Okay, I tried searching around here on the question boards, but got no good answer. Basically, I'm trying to figure out how to add new units to the vanilla FE8 cast. The problem right now I'm having is giving the new units supports. So in the supports library I have Eirika supports CC!Selena, but the unit is non-selectable. I tried linking the two units in the Convo Availability Editor and got nothing, and before you say "Set the unit's support pointer..." it is all ready set in the unit's Character Editor. Any help would be appreciated, I have no idea what's wrong!
  16. So i want to do a pick my edits run of fe8. If you don't know what a PME run is, it involves people submitting and edits they would like me to make to the rom - stupid or serious. Anyway please submit any ideas you have.
  17. Any chance someone has created a mod/hack that imports Roy from fe6 into fe8? Roy is one of my favorite characters and i would love to see this sort of minor hack. If something like this already exists I would appreciate a nudge in the right direction. Thanks!
  18. Modular Minimug Box Mod This mod aims to allow for (nearly) full customization of the minimug box. If you've seen anything else I've made, you probably know that most of it involves this box. Here's an example of a configuration made for Eliwan: As you can see, quite a lot can be added to the box. If you're interested in learning about customizing the box yourself, or are interested in making routines for it, please see the FEU thread below: FEU thread MMMB Beta Download If you have any suggestions, find any bugs, or have any questions, please leave a reply here or on FEU. Thanks!
  19. I've been playing FE8 lately and I'm currently on chapter 12. I've trained both Joshua and Marisa both to level 20 and I need some advice on what to promote them too. I have an A Rank support for Joshua and Natalie(because his defense is trash) and I'm planning to give Marisa a Joshua support too. That is all, thanks guys.
  20. How do I save Marisa(Peg Knight) who dies to the Brigand on Turn 1?
  21. So i finished sacred stones a couple days a go and liked it for the most part. Not among my favorites bit all in all a good story line and great game.
  22. I would like to preface that this is very early as a concept, I'd just like to hear people's opinions on my idea so far. Firstly, I wanna say that I've never hacked FE8 before, but I know it's considered the better choice, so I'm going to learn. Brief synopysis: The story is about an ever-changing world beginning in the centre of the largest continent; the country Umēra, a young country home to many poor and unfortunate people which is about to face a major crisis that will put its existence on the line. The high ranking political powers are making their move, military might is being strengthened across the land. The condemned country is on a time limit. A strange array of characters will soon accumulate from the cracks and upper echelons of society - to save the country, or to save themselves? The story primarily follows a merchant by the name of Leith with a very broad past surrounding many important people, a mysterious and magical girl Rin with the heart of a pacifist who uses a flute as a weapon, a "resigned" soldier named Nyoman, an isolated young prodigy alchemist/mage Kody and a shut-in princess with aspirations to become a professional fencer named Thuraia. There're plenty of other characters, but I thought I'd mention the characters that represent the most diversity. Progress: well... I've written the first two chapters' dialogue. I'm also working on the maps for first two chapters - both gameplay and cutscene chapters. Hacking capabilities: I'm capable of mapping, basic splicing (though I'll probably just use NICKT's skin pack or FE7/8 characters), writing music and I learned basic scripting a while back. I reckon I could pick it up again with some practice. Obligatory list of features to likely expect: - 4-5 part story (Similar to Radiant Dawn, though probably not as long) - Some new classes (down the road, placeholders will be used for the time being) - New music (possibly some written by myself) - 25-30 characters - I'm hoping to write more of a character driven story, so less emphasis on army rosters. - Hopefully a unique story with characters archetypes not yet touched upon heavily (within the FE fanbase) - A substantial timeskip within the story (I've already planned where it will roughly take place) If you think I should give more information, I will add more on the characters and the world they hail from. I'll probably update this later regardless cause I've probably missed a few things.
  23. So I just started ephiraims route along with eirikas and I wanted to know why people think ch 11 is hard. Because I just blew right threw it, is it hard mode that makes it hard?
  24. Heya! So, I'm asking this here because this is extremely relevant to how I go about planning out my hack's story; how feasible is it to turn the chapter slots normally used by event-only maps and such into regular chapters? I know using the Link Arena "chapter" for anything is right out, of course. I read in the Ultimate Tutorial that editing the event map chapter slots is something that would be possible in theory, but that hacking utilities at the time were not currently designed to facilitate doing so. The thing is that "the time" was several years ago at this point, and I'm unsure if hacking utilities have been updated to support editing those or not (or if other difficulties in doing so have arisen). Thanks so much for your time!
