  2. I'm new to Fates modding and I'm still very much in the dark about what to do. I've contacted a few mod creators and joined some Discord servers to try and remedy my issues but the results have been mixed. At this point I'm willing to pay someone to do it since I'm busy with other things and trying to get the mods to work makes me want to tear my hair out. My Discord username is "sunbreaksimp" if anyone would like to message me. Any help or offers are appreciated. Edit for more context: I'm using Citra and I'm emulating the USA Special Edition of the game. I am more specifically looking for someone who can use the mod editing programs like Paragon, the ID Editor, and the IPS Merger.
  3. Due to various reasons, which range from the indignation I felt when I discovered years ago that "Valla Noble" didn't exist, to me wanting to improve my designing skills, passing by me liking how Fates, unlike awakening for example, have official promotions for (most of) the first generation, I've decided to make designs for potential "promotions" of said first generation. I probably won't be constant, I don't even know if I'll finish this, but I might as well have them all together here. So, to begin with, here's Valla Noble Corrin: Opinions, feedback and critique are all welcomed, and though I have to say in advance that I won't change the designs once I post them, I will take into consideration comments for future designs.
  4. The Fire Emblem Fates Randomizer has undergone a complete rewrite. The new randomizer, Ignis, offers more features and a more stable playthrough (less troubleshooting!). Additionally, the setup with Ignis is simpler - give it an extracted RomFS and somewhere to put the outputs and it will handle the rest. No digging through the RomFS or running files through FEAT. Randomizer features: Randomized classes, skills, and stats. This includes weapon rank adjustments so everyone's viable in their new classes. Randomized join order. Characters can swap places in the story with proper adjustments to dialogue, 3D cutscenes, etc. Randomized chest/village items. Experimental player randomization. Lots of misc. extras + fixes to help with randomized playthroughs. Add Anna to castle recruitment, unlock hero battles, a generic sprite for Songstress, etc. For more details + instructions, check the readme on GitHub: https://github.com/thane98/ignis Releases (download the *.7z file, NOT the source code): https://github.com/thane98/ignis/releases Direct download link (Beta 2): https://github.com/thane98/ignis/releases/download/beta-2/Ignis-Beta-2-Windows.7z
  5. So I've been playing Awakening recently and it's been reviving my interest in Fire Emblem again, so I started watching old Awakening and Fates videos that I used to enjoy (mostly from shadowofchaos and Ghast) and out of nowhere I noticed that a lot of people got into FE around this time (including me) and that certain games were controversial due to the new fans rustling a few FE veteran's jimmies and it's got me curious, which game on the 3DS is considered the most liked by the people on SF and why?
  6. Hey 🙂, i'm just shamelessly self-promoting but on my youtube channel (TerraTheHamster) i'm doing my own randomized ironman on Birthright! I'm a very small channel and would love some subscribers or advice or whatever so check it out if you want. Even if you go there just for a look i'd love you TerraTheHamster - YouTube
  7. Hey all, recently I've wanted to play Fates modded because I thought it would be fun. I've already installed Citra Nightly and the .cia file of fates and it works perfectly, however the mods (seemingly) don't work. I've done the load/mods/title ID correctly, and I did exactly what I did for Awakening when I modded that ages ago; I've extracted all the files, and they're in the romfs folder yet it still doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated, thanks all in advanced!
  8. Hello, and welcome to the thread for my semiblind ironman Let's Play / Roleplay of all three paths of Fire Emblem Fates for the 3DS. This screenshot let's play is done in the style of a magical war journal written by the main character, Dakota. Who exactly is Dakota? Dakota is a rather unlikely hero: a creepily pragmatic, eugenics-obsessed, megalomaniacal, narcissistic, borderline-sociopathic, socially inept control freak with basically only one redeeming quality: their genuine love for the select few people who manage to get close to their heart. Their motivations are not quite as noble as the canon avatar, though there's no lack of drive to accomplish them, and there is some humanity in there somewhere. What do you mean by "Semiblind"? Basically, I've been super hyped for this game, so I have checked out the wiki for certain stuff. I know most of the basic classes and skills, and a handful of the new basic weapons (though I have not read up at all on the metagame and thus only have my 12 years of experience playing Fire Emblem to work out which of them are and aren't useful), I've seen Nintendo's site and know about all the characters and information/videos listed there, but when it comes to anything beyond that, the rest of the characters, the maps, the story, I am almost totally blind. Almost. What I know: How will this work? Basically Dakota will go through Birthright first and Conquest second, with Revelation being third. Dakota's gender will also go by the covers of the two games. Dakota will be male in Birthright, Female in Conquest, and whichever I decide I prefer in Revelation. Here are the designs i came up with for Male and Female Dakota using the Serenes Forest "Kamui Editor": Male: Female: As for the rules I'll be using in this LP: I'll use every non-dlc trick available to me that I can discover in both versions, but I'm not allowed to reset unless the game forces me to for losing an important character or failing the mission, and I cannot abuse this to force a reset to get a lost character back. I may also exploit the fact that I still have my original 3DS (and that I'm buying physical copies of both versions for collecting reasons) to self-streetpass if I can come up with an interesting thing storywise to do with it (and boy do I think I can). Also, while I won't be using DLC, I'll be using the amiibo because I have them, and because they add characters I feel I can do interesting things with. I update every day but thursday, some time around 6 eastern standard time, though the length of the battle means this can vary, and you can expect later updates the further into each path I get. Is there reader participation? YES! As of Conquest, I've decided to start using the castle visiting feature, but I've decided that I won't visit random castles. I'll only be able to access the ones that are sent to me. I haven't fully worked it out because I'm trying to avoid spoilers so I don't want to look up much, but here's my card: Just punch this address in and visit my castle, and then you'll be on my visit list and I'll visit you back. You might even make a cameo appearance in the series!
  9. Hello some of you might remember about my genealogy of the holy war and fates story swap post but yea this time its about what if sigurd and anankos were in each other's role like for example what if sigurd was the antagonist of fe4 instead of Julius and what if anankos was not the antagonist of fates like say what if Sigurd was influenced by tyrfring or something or corrupted by manfroy and anankos would a father who died while corrin was a baby and imagine seliph having to fight his father what story would you say about this ? Comment below to say
  10. Hello people, I would like to talk about a topic that always leaves me thinking, the gameplay of Fates (especially conquest), Every time I heard about Fates before playing it, they always told me the same thing, "the conquest gameplay is the best in the entire saga", And well, after having replayed it a couple of times, I have always felt it was highly overrated since it has many things that I consider somewhat wasted and I wanted to comment on them. 1-Despite being one of the most difficult FEs, it gives you very few playable characters, let me explain, in other FEs they always give you characters when you advance in the game, like GBA or DS, but here they give you very few and most at the beginning, which which leaves very little variety in the mid-late game, leaving you with very few alternatives if something goes wrong or someone dies, which seems to me a very bad thing for one of the most difficult FE. I know that gen2 exists, but it's not the same, after the Xander chapter I feel that it feels too monotonous, since with so little variety of characters you feel that everything has to be perfect, since the maps demand a lot but give few resources, of course they give you enough to survive, but nothing more, the maps at that point become quite complex, which I think causes more problems. The problem is not that it is difficult, it is that for me it does not feel like a Fire Emblem game, for example FE12 is also difficult, but it is constantly giving you characters because the game knows that it is difficult, and also since some maps are somewhat complex , it gives you access to save points so you don't have to repeat those very tedious and specific parts, Conquest doesn't give you any of that and I really feel that it makes the game experience worse 2-The dragon veins seem to me an element that slows down the game and doesn't add anything other than just slowing you down more, like in the Sakura map that I find extremely boring, or the one about climbing the mountain, not to mention the one about the ninja cave and the final map, I feel that the game has very poorly designed maps that end up making the experience boring, and if you add to that the few characters it gives you, I think the result gets worse. 3-The second generation, this works as a replacement for the classic style of giving you characters every time you advance, but for me it has a lot of problems too, since it's something you have to plan from the beginning and probably requires many characters that you don't you want to use or they won't be of much help to you in the long run, what happens if that character with whom you had rank A dies? Well, you lose the son that you had been preparing for so long, the same thing if he did not give you very good level ups and it was no longer convenient for you to take him with you, it is something that requires a lot of preparation and is not very comfortable, and personally I prefer that they give me directly the characters to depend on something like support S. 4-The skill system is full of some that have percentages, which I think already screws up the RNG too much And having to constantly check the abilities of the enemies annoys me, at least in other FE they were fewer abilities and were not as important as in Tellius and Jugdral, if receiving crits and sometimes it bothers having many enemies that use those skills makes it worse, especially in lunatic, like in the Kaden chapter that to me Apparently it has horrible mechanics with the enemies, or the chapter against Hana, the one with Ryoma, the endgame, damn I really don't find anything good about this skill system since it makes me fatal. Maybe some maps are well designed like the port or the ship since they encourage you to make solid strategies, that's fine, but the problem is that this is FE, a game where the RNG matters a lot, where units can die , where the level ups affect a lot, there are other FE like Echoes or Holy war that follow a similar idea "give you a lot of units at the beginning but almost none in the late game" but minimal in those games like FE4, the Gen 2 is separated from the gen1, which makes it more like using the children in my opinion and also the saving system and abilities. Same case for Echoes with the sources to revive and Mila's wheel. I don't think it's a bad game, but I would say that AS A FIRE EMBLEM GAME, it's pretty bad, if this game were from, I don't know, Advance Wars or Triangle Strategy, maybe it would be better since they are not games where units die or that It affected the rng too much, but hey, I just wanted to give my opinion on why this FE for me has a very overrated gameplay in many aspects. I would like to know what you think. Thank you for reading
  11. Warning: Before I say anything, you're probably going to have a difficult time using this if you have no experience in python, even though you don't need to code yourself. This is because this tool requires python, which you can simply download, but also requires Pandas. I use Pycharm and let it manage all my packages, but setting pycharm up or managing the packages yourself can be troublesome if you've never used it before. That's why it really helps if you already have a working Python environment with Pandas. You can ask questions, and I'll try to help, but I can't guarentee success. link This is a tool which I created mostly for myself, but I realised some other people may find enjoyment in it too. You can use it to either randomize the class (and character ranking) for Sacred Stones/Shadow Dragon/New Mystery/Awakening/Fates/Echoes/Three Houses or maximaze stat growths for kids in Genealogy/Awakening/Fates. How to do this I've explained in the readme.md, so just read it there and if it isn't clear, you can ask what I mean. If I were a better programmer (both in skill and in ethic) I would make my creation more user-friendly, by creating a gui or something, but I didn't, so now you have to install a couple of randomly strewn files from github. You need everything there except the readme (though you may want to read it), ui.py and main.py and just put it in a folder (probably an IDE project folder). From here you can follow the instructions in the readme. If you manage to make it work on you computer, I'd appreciate feedback if you encounter some mistakes. Some I know and I'm not planning to fix (You can use Gunter and Jakob both in Conquest and Revelations but they only have an A+ in Conquest), and one other I only just remembered during writing that it existed (the fates randomizer does not yet take into account child marriage), but there will probably be many I don't.
  12. Hello, I wanted to start a Fire Emblem Fates Conquest Pick my Units, With your Units as replacement for the standard cast. How this works is, If you want you send me your Own Character in a Comment following the Template here: ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Name: Description(optional): Class/Reclass and Pomotion: Army: (Nohr,Valla,Unown,Hoshido) Birthday: Which Unit to Overwrite/ You will join in that Chapter and get this units Bases (Taken Characters will be named in the Comment Section) Growths/300 Points per Character to divide in these Substats: HP: STR: MAG: SKILL: SPD: LCK: DEF: RES: Personal Skill: (can be an original/new idea or an exisiting one, Every skill in the game is possible) Portrait: (which Character or Enemy Portrait) PERSONAL WEAPON: (be creative) ( also optional 😄 ) Hair Color.

  13. How do i know in Fates for what Units when do i promote/change and to what? do i just scour the wiki checking the skill list? how do you go about it.
  14. So I'm wanting to do a Capture Units only Run in the game. I have the patched for the Capture Fates hacks working on my CIA and will be using the Citra Emulator for it. But I thought it would be cool if I could make the Royals personal weapons usable by some of the generics that I manage to capture But past apply some patches I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to hacking the 3ds FE game. So any and all help is much appreciated. I'm also looking to add skill and growths to some of the generics later on for the challenge if that's possible. With the idea that of you pay attention to the enemies you may find an enemy with Ryomas personal skill and growths. So I'm wanting to do a Capture Units only Run in the game.

The Capture Fates mod was made by Windypanda1 and the thread is here: https://forums.serenesforest.net/index.php?/topic/93684-fe14-capture-fates-v12/
  15. This hack aims to rebalance the weapons of Fates while still maintaining the unique drawbacks to weapons presented in the game. Some notable changes include: * Silver weapons now have an effective speed buff and have the half Str/Mag debuff instead of the stacking Str/Mag/Skl-2 debuff. * Rebalanced forging bonuses * Addition of 1-2 range melee weapons * All vanilla armory weapons and weapons altered in the hack can be purchased infinitely at armory level 3 * Significant changes to many other weapons The full details can be found in the readme inside of the Google Drive folder. This hack is a work in progress, so not every weapon has been changed yet. The next update will consist of changes to the weapons gained from castle events that are not named after characters (like Raider Knife and Illusory Yumi). Download link: Super Armory v1
  16. Note: There are plenty of games I haven't played. Feel free to add your takes on those. This post will cover Blazing Blade, Awakening and Fates. And borders don't apply the same way they do in the real world. For instance, An Indian based nation could border a French based nation. Blazing Blade Sacae-Mongolia. The clothing style and nomad lifestyle that the Sacaen's use is reminiscent of old Mongolia. Bern- Russia. Bern is a war torn kingdom on the eastern skirts of Elibe. With it's cold temperatures to the north and the look of Bern characters, Russia is my pick. Pherae - Spain. Not super confident about this one but going loosely based on the general European atmosphere, climate and character names Spain is my choice. Ostia- France. Same reasoning as Pherae. Nabata - Holy land in a desert? Imma say Israel Awakening Halidom of Ylisse- Roman Empire. Ylisse seems to take some design from Latin based culture. Simple enough. Regna Ferox - Ancient Greece. While Khan is certainly a Mongolian term, the way Regna Ferox is split, the way it's set up led me to think that it's probably more like Sparta. Valmese Empire - This ones a mess. Chon'sin is clearly based off of Japan. Virion speaks with a Frence accent, and Cherche and Cervantes are French names. It's like a split between the French area and Japan. Plegia - Ancient Egypt. The Plegian architecture, clothes and landscape have strong ties to Ancient Egypt. The markings and sorcerer outfits especially. Fates Hoshido- Feudal Japan. Nohr - Germany with splashes of the UK and Scandinavia. While it also takes some pretty heavy Norse influences (Mijolnir, BiFrost, Bolverk, Brynhildr) I choose Germany as the ultimate winner partially due to Askr's existence. Askr is just a pile of Norwegian overload. While there can certainly be two nations based on the same country, Nohr has so much European influence that Germany ultimately stands out. The architecture is far closer to Germany than Norway. Castle Krakenburg and the village areas all could pass for Germany easily. Krakenburg is a German style name, though it is made up. Elise is named after the German song "Fur Elise," and Xander's sword "Siegfried," is named after a prince from a German myth. The Nohrian music doesn't sound German. The music seems more based on the UK. Dusk Falls practically shout UK and Dark Wastes has some solid hints of it. Crykensia- Turkey. The small city between Nohr and Hoshido is home to many dancers and a lively culture. We barely see Crykensia but its theme, architecture and notable features as a nation resmble Turkey. Valla- Sumerian Empire. Sumeria was an Ancient Empire based in Modern day Iraq. They were a highly advanced civilization that fell in around 1700 B.C. . Castle Gyges looks like the Ziggurats made by the Sumerians. The interior isn't as clear a comparison but it fits. Seems like a good fit. Hopefully this was laid out well enough and was an interesting read. I've always enjoyed looking at cultures in fiction and hope that others find this intriguing as well.
  17. So, I plan on making some written works here, and I decided to make his so you can understand who I have paired up with who. All of these stories will take place in the same universe... sort of. Basically, in this universe, there are: -2 separate Awakening timelines -2 separate Fates: Revelation timelines -1 Smash World that brings them together. This accommodates for each Corrin and Robin of each gender. Before we get to the pairings, a few notes in the spoiler below. Anyways, the pairings: Awakening: Robin timeline Awakening: Reflet Timeline Fates Revelation: Corrin timeline Fates Revelation: Kamui timeline If there are any thoughts and concerns about the details here, let me know.
  18. This is my first time doing an Ironman run! Difficulty: Normal Classic Avatar Name: Celestin Gender: Male Boon: + Resistance Bane: - Luck Talent: Sky Knight Here are some of the specifications: -I will not restart any map unless Celestin dies. Each time he dies, I will randomly select a character to permanently bench. -Buying skills and using any of the My Castle features are perfectly fine. -I am not starting at Branch of Fate, since I don’t want to lose valuable experience gathered. -All characters that will be used for combat will be immediately reclassed at the first opportunity. The female characters who will not be Falcon Knights will be Witches. The male characters who will not be Falcon Knights will be Ballisticians. -Characters who are not these three classes can be used to produce children, but can have minimal to no exposure to combat. -Given the nature of this Ironman, DLC can and will be used. However, deaths will not count in DLC maps that do not yield EXP. -Anna will be used, as well as any second-gen units I see fit. No captured units are allowed. Screenshots are coming soon!
  19. I'm replaying Conquest with Male Corrin because he's my favorite lord, but also would like to have Male Kana on the run, with the only way to do so being getting him from someone else's castle. But the thing is, all the M!Kanas I find are too strong and skilled (and thus, expensive, not to mention that to keep things balanced I would have to bench him most of the game), so I wanted to see if anybody here had in their MyCastle a weak enough M!Kana I could get. Also quick question, there's any difference between a normal unit and one got this way outside of the supports? Like, could I get them skills from other Kanas from other castles? And would he have access to his father's classes?
  20. As said in the title, this is my first time around in Serene's Forest and I'd love to be able to talk with people here! I just have one question. Where do I post Castle Addresses in the forum? That's one thing that I'd love to know so far, and I'd love to see how this entire site works! Thank you for taking the time to read.
  21. I honestly completely forgot that I still had an account here so I decided to catch up on what's been happening. Literally last night as I was sleeping, the thought of 2016 came into my head and I know a few people had a few opinions on that year but for me it was a very solid year for me and my family and friends. I reminisced about the MLG memes, funny YouTubers, the NBA Finals and the roster of WWE Smackdown Live that year, then suddenly my mind came to Fire Emblem Fates on how it...actually brought a lot of joy into that year like it was the biggest highlight of that year to mid 2017 and I know a lot of people have some really negative opinions of that game but for me, it was a game I needed to play and don't get it twisted I played many Fire Emblem games before this starting from FE7 back in the early 2000s, but this game made me had the most fun I'd ever did during the time from the Castle creation, gameplay, characters and the online PVP (which I wish more FE games after did this). But I want to make my point of why this game actually has a special place in my heart and why I have such a emotional tangent for it Before it came out, I had a lot of issues in my life that was happening during this time. With that it made me sorta angsty and kinda edgy at times but not to a extent as someone crazy, this was also the time where I was a teenager in high school already so that mixed with puberty was a wild time. I've had a interest in video games for a long time and one of the games I played during that time was Super Smash Bros for 3Ds and Wii U, this was when Cloud was revealed in Smash and announced that a special broadcast was happening, after a reveal like that I didn't know who else would be in this game. I literally remember running back from school and head home and see what was going to go down and all I see is a opening cutscene of Ryoma saying "this way". That's when I knew it was going crazy, I was literally going hype mode when Corrin yelled "Join Smash!" because no one expected this at all, I see his moveset and how he works and it looked so different yet so fun from anyone else and I knew I needed him fast. As I check out and see everyone going as nuts as me, I also saw the Smash nerds getting so mad over him getting included in the game and that was the birth of the Corrin salt meme which is still by far the best Smash meme from that time. Now that I actually got to play him and knowing that he was in the game it gave me more reasons to get Fire Emblem Fates, I remember going to the store that day with my dad at launch and tried to get all 3 versions, I only got Conquest though and we were both dumb enough to realize that the cashier suggested a pack to get all 3 paths so we both knew we played ourselves, yet Conquest alone still made me happy for the time being before I got Birthrght as well. One of the things that I really liked was the setting of the game, compared to the other FE games, this one felt so different and it made sure it looked like a different dimension from the other games, whether it be Hoshido or Nohr or even your damn treehouse in the My Castle it looked so beautiful, and on the topic of My Castle, they aced it with the creativity and how open and how much freedom you can have with that game from how you can make it look to visiting other people online, throughout the entire lifespan of that game, I spent a lot trying to visit every castle I could with that. The gameplay while has Binding Blade levels of RNG it was a massive improvement from Awakening, now you don't even need to worry about weird broken stuff anymore because now you can handle stuff on your own and Pair Up didn't feel like two crackheads killing someone, it balanced the reward and the punish for using that tool and it was great. And lastly I want to talk about the characters, now I know there's that one redditor who will say "uH aLL cHaRaCtErs iN fAtEs iZ bAd" but I feel like always looking at the negatives will just ruin your fun, characters like Nina, Takumi, Saizo, Felica (she's a sweetheart), Camilla, Rhajat, Reina and so much more just made the game so fun and interesting to find out more about. When people say Fates cast is forgettable than Awakening I usually tell them give the cast a shot and pay attention to what they do and look at their supports, with such a big cast like that it also gave us some great memes from that entire time so no other fan felt left out and they were actually funny, I actually made a few memes and shitposts during that time too before my channel got bigger. One character specifically I want to talk about is Corrin because a lot of people really give him the cold shoulder for being "bland" or "boring" when it really isn't the case, he's one of the guys that really stand out in the game with such a creative background from being sheltered for most of his life and learning how to be a leader in war is really great, most people who don't like positive characters are usually miserable themselves, I think the kindness is something that was needed for a character like him, take it like this, if he always acted edgy despite not knowing anything about his previous life but also having people that care for you in the process, it would be kinda strange. But knowing all this is what makes Corrin the true underdog in my opinion, he was always the maker of salt lords back in smash 4 and he will always be the maker of salt lords for the FE community and he's still one of the most popular Fates characters in the poll for a reason. Even when people gave the character crap and told me that he was horrible, I played all 3 paths and couldn't find a single reason why he was bad and 5 years later as I replayed it I still don't. The last big thing of why Fates brought me a lot of joy is the people who also liked the game as well, during this time Discord was introduced and before it became where weirdos dmed their e girls every second, it was just a cool site with gamers who wanted to talk about video games. How I found out about it was through a Fates PVP tournament and was immediately welcomed by the coolest people there, from that moment I had even more fun than I was already having and each time I picked up my 3DS I began exploring the game with the most optimism, from doing crazy stupid PVP battles to making memes I had a blast with all the cool people who were passionate about the game like me, I even met a guy who's favorite character was Peri (who was considered the worst Fates character) and he didn't give a single damn if people clowned on him as well, and I did the same for the game in general because it came at a time where I needed joy the most and I was the happiest I've ever been n my life. And then...I met the elitists...and they had a lot to say about the game... It's no secret that the elitists really go ham on the newer titles and even the people who enjoyed them, I was no stranger to this and I played Fire Emblem way before this but yet they went for me when I was so positive about the game, somewhere along the line in 2017 a trailer for a remake of Gaiden was showcased and of course the elitists went their way to attack anyone who was neutral or wasn't interested, it was basically a moment for them and said "yeah we get good games! fuck fates and fuck the people who liked it". Even people who I thought were cool and played the game as long as me became snakes and harassed any person who enjoyed the game on sight, so bad that a lot of them left and went away from the internet like Discord, YouTube and even this site. Even as I was staying positive through the road, I also became very irritated of these people attacking others for no reason to a point during when I got Echoes and I felt soulless with that game...they attacked me more, at that point I was ready to just give up on it so when Heroes had the summer banner in 2017, I left completely from the community and wanted nothing to do with Fire Emblem ever again. I basically became anti-fire emblem at that point and was pissed off if i saw any fan of it, with a community like that I wanted no part in it. In June of 2019 we lost a very kind soul on the Earth, Desmond Amofah (aka Etika) committed suicide due to the pressure of facing lots of demons and what may have been years of pent up aggression, It was one of the most unexpected and sad times we had to deal with and no one could believe somehow as positive and happy as him would do something like this, the human brain really works in many ways. I was a fan of Etika all the way back when he was still doing Pokemon videos and dancing to random anime music so this gave me a lot of weird emotions and yet I never met the man...but it felt like I knew him all along, the reason I say this because I remember watching his most funny and best moments playing 3DS Fire Emblem. A year after that moment I decided to rewatch some Etika clips and stream during lockdown back in June and found his Fire Emblem videos on that and saw how passionate he was about a game as I was, at one point I remembered all the fun times playing Fates from all of 2016 to mid 2017 and recalled how happy I was having that whole experience...but then I remembered the awful times when the elitists came to ruin our fun and recalled all the nice and cool people I met were gone from the internet, I still talk to a few but almost all of them are gone and it makes me really sad and angry how people like these redditors and elitists cut ties from my time of fun. I see these geeks on YouTube and these other sites crying about Fates and saying how it ruined Fire Emblem and after a while it became WAY too much and I thought in my head "that's what made me lose interest in this series" and it clicked on me and i just thought these people are fucking losers, I had a moment of clarity where I don't need to play a game while associating with people who complain every single day because the same people who hated Fates, hated everything else, it was all negativity and I just thought that I love Fates and I'm proud of that and I don't want to end up like them and be negative every day, I wasn't going to take it from people who made me hate a series for 3 years. So in August I replayed Fates and all the happy thoughts from 2016 came back once again. Everyone has their favorite game that made them happy and didn't even notice the negative people, for me it was this game because as I said before it came during a time when I need happiness the most and I love how in spinoff games, they try to bring some characters from that game in there because it's smart and it's still the second best selling Fire Emblem game for a reason. I even found out that there's still dedicated Fates servers as well as PVP ones and the people are so cool and chill like it was back then. For those who are afraid to admit that they like Fates, don't be because I can say proudly that this game holds a special place in my heart always and it brought me so much joy
  22. Fire Emblem Fates: Upgraded, the way Fire Emblem Fates is meant to be played. About this hack: What this hack plans to do is change a lot of things in the game to balance it better, make the game harder, fix the story, and fix many inconsistencies with the localization, so you could call this Fire Emblem Fates Deluxe, or Fire Emblem Fates Definitive, I intend for it to have a feel like that, some of the changes are: Katanas give avoid and effective speed but have lower strength. Most Nohrian weapons are given more might and a little less accuracy. Bows were given more accuracy, and might. Silver weapons no longer debuff after use. Daggers have a new small edit. The Yato gives some stat bonuses. Weapons like the Kodachi can now follow up! But weapons like the Spear cannot. Most Birthright Boss’ weapon placements are changed. Some boss themes are moved around. Xander and Ryoma can now have a special theme for their final fight in Birthright and Conquest! (Information at the Questions and Answers section, and link is in the downloads section) Xander has been buffed at his final fight in Birthright, as well as a new gameplay change was added for it (Lunatic and Hard Mode only). All Birthright bosses have been buffed. The Siegfried and Raijinto have been differentiated more. The Fujin Yumi and Brynhildr give a very small bonus. Birthright, Revelation, and Hero Battle enemy stats are now decreased slightly on Hard mode and greatly on Normal mode. Many translation errors, like Setsuna’s personal skill, Nyx’s death quote, Hinata’s death quote, Oboro’s death quote etc. are fixed. Changes the unit creation screen Boon and Bane text to be like Awakenings. Changed the main lord’s death theme. (Information on how to change it back is at the Questions and Answers section, Question 6.) Most Vallites are buffed, on Lunatic and Hard mode. All Invasions are edited. Added Scaling to the Hero battles plus change 14! Lilith now has Dragon Ward as a personal skill! As a result of change 1 and 5 the Yatos changes are much more varied. Xander has a new description. Ryoma does too. So much more... It also plans to add in plenty of new supports as well as audio in supports, chapters, paralogues, and perhaps some characters, as well as use some of Team IFs translation text to change the games text to properly express the characters different feelings and make different supports clearer, this hack also plans to add recruitment methods for characters in the Birthright path (such as Sakura being able to recruit Hinoka), and mothers being able to recruit the children characters, this hack also plans to add a few custom DLCs, as well as add Hoshidan and Nohrian Festival of Bonds and a new Apotheosis called “True Apotheosis”… yes I know that’s a lot, maybe I should go ahead and call this Fire Emblem Fates Ultimate. (Everything in the hack is bound to change, and is in no way affiliated with Nintendo or Intelligent Systems.) Previous version: .4827 Current version: .4848Rev5 Hack Status: Stalled Be sure to take a look at the screenshots. The change log, and logo are present in the links below, if you enjoy the hack be sure to follow me to stay up to date with the latest releases of Fates Upgraded, and give it a like. Also feel free to comment, ask questions, make suggestions and whatever else, but most questions can be answered by reading the change log, or the Questions and Answers section, thank you and enjoy! Hack progress: I split the hack currently into two version, the Faithful version, and the Upgraded version: The Faithful version: The version that is currently being worked on, is a version that does lots of edits but doesn’t change the game too much.

Faithful Birthright Edits: Complete Faithful Birthright My Castle Invasion edits: Complete Faithful Birthright Paralogue Edits: Complete Faithful Conquest Edits: Chapters: 25, 27, EG done. (I don’t think I’ll be doing anymore edits to it.)

Again, thank you all! ☺️ Questions and Answers: Question 1: How do I even load the hack!? Answer: You will need to use a file patcher, like the LayeredFS in Luma CFW, if you haven’t installed Luma yet here is a link to all the information for it: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/wiki Question 2: How do I open the .rar file? Answer: You can use WinRAR for that (even after the trial period you can keep using it for free). Question 3: Why isn’t the new theme for Ryoma and Xander already loaded in the hack? Answer: EDIT: The theme sounds good, but the Iron 15 file is really large and could take up too much room on a SD card so I left it out of the hack, but it can be put in and used in the game, instructions are around the bottom of the Changelog. Question 4: Why don’t I see any changes in Birthright? I’m playing on hard mode. Answer: EDIT: This is a problem on version .4792, but with the release of .4825 this problem should be fixed. Question 5: You composed the theme for Xander and Ryoma yourself? Answer: No. It was taken from another game and added to Fates Upgraded same with the main lord’s death theme. Question 6: How do I add the changed main lord death theme? Answer: 1. In the hack files either: FatesUpgradedFatesBirthrightGame.rar, FatesUpgradedFatesConquestGame.rar, or FatesUpgradedFatesSpecialEditionGame.rar 2. Go in the "LumaLayeredFS" hack folder of the game hack (eg. FEFatesBirthrightFatesUpgradedLumaLayeredFSFiles) navigate to and then enter the folder "stream" in the folder "Sound", once inside delete REMOVETHISMESSAGETOADDIT from the filename "sys_gameover_E1.dspadpcmREMOVETHISMESSAGETOADDIT.bcstm" and you're done. Question 7: Is this hack compatible with Gay Fates? Answer: I’m not sure, but I don’t think so, it would probably require some effort to make the hack work with it, whether it’ll take little or a lot again I don’t know. Question 8: How do I revert the changed chapter names? Answer: 1. In the hack files: FatesUpgradedFatesBirthrightGame.rar, FatesUpgradedFatesConquestGame.rar, or FatesUpgradedFatesSpecialEditionGame.rar 2. Go in the "LumaLayeredFS" hack folder of the game hack (eg. FEFatesBirthrightFatesUpgradedLumaLayeredFSFiles) 3. Navigate to and then enter the folder "@E" in the folder "m", once inside delete or what I recommend, rename the file "GameData.bin.lz" to something else and rename "GameDataWITHVANILLACHAPTERNAMES.bin.lz" to "GameData.bin.lz" and you're done.

  23. So as much as I love Fates and FE, i've noticed that more people are starting to hate on Fates less and less. Why do you all think that is the case? Personally for me, I went back to Fates being my favorite when I realized Three Houses gameplay wasnt as fun as I thought it was first time.
  24. hello! made an account just for this lmao i'm playing on an emulator and i'm trying to add multiple avatar units to one save file but i'm having trouble figuring it out. i've speedrun the game three times (not very good times pls don't ask what they are) just to add three barely-touched corrins to the logbook and i'm wondering if there's a faster way i wanna play through the game with my brothers with each of us using our own avatar units, i thought it would be fun but having to abuse ryoma and speedrun to the endgame is time consuming : (
