  1. I have been playing Path of Radiance Randomized via Yune recently, and got a really good Sothe that randomized into Mia with stupidly great growths and put a Blossom on him for a near perfect level up every time. He capped Strength, Skill, Speed, Defense and Resistance at Lvl20 unpromoted, and now he's my main damage dealer and best candidate for that Resolve + Wrath to beat Ashnard. Except, every time I try to promote him, the game crashes. Give the Bonus EXP, the Class Change text pops up, screen fades to black and the FPS counter freezes. Nothing happens and I can't even soft reset after that. My guess is that, since Sothe can't promote in the base game, the game doesn't know what to do when the promotion happens for him in the randomizer, thus the crash. Has anyone had a similar experience with randomized Sothe? If so, did you manage to fix it somehow?
  2. Hi! This is my first post on Serenes Forest and my re-introduction into Fire Emblem Fates. The Fates cast has some of my favorite characters of all the games and I've been wanting to revisit the game and attempt a Lunatic play through of Conquest. I've lurked on some topics to try to get a better understanding of how to plan out my run, but, if I am to be completely honest, I feel a little bit lost. So, I came here hoping to ask for a little bit of help and guidance for a first time Lunatic Conquest gamer. My favorite character is Selena (with Laslow as a close second) and I'd like to utilize her to her utmost ability, so I am mainly looking for a way to build her. Hero seems like a fairly straightforward pick in terms of her classes, but does anyone else have any other skill recommendations? What my post boils down to is the following: I'm attempting Lunatic Conquest for the first time and I would love some tips for planning characters with a focus on Selena. I hope anyone who sees this has a wonderful day! ❤️
  3. Accidentally deleted one of the armories in Chapter 5. Is there a way where I can add it back?
  4. :{ so yeah like the title says, i lost my save file and desperately need one. ive fallen in love with this game and i cant just abandon it forever, for i dont have it in me to replay all of it.. my pairings were Tailte x Dew Sylvia x Claude Brigid x Midir Raquesis x Azel Erin x Lewyn Ayra x Lex Aideen x Jamke Ethlyn x Quan Deirdre x Sigurd but honestly i would take any chapter 8 safe file, even if it has different pairings. i dont want any substitute units though.. sorry if im asking for much, i just really would love to finish this wonderful game
  5. Hello! 😄 I've been playing Conquest for a while, but I got stuck a few times... Then I gave up and restarted the game! But I'm still having problems to progress 😕 I don't want to restart again, so I was curious about what people think of my team and what could I do to improve it! My team had some early promotions for chapter 13 (Effie, Beruka, Arthur and Silas if I remember right) and Silas married Effie. Besides this the only pairing I'm interested is F!Corrin and Laslow because of strong Soleil ☺️ Any other pairing suggestion is okay. Last thing I tried to do was doing Invasion 2 to train Mozu and get Astra on Corrin, but I can't survive South enemies after a few rounds... Here is the save file for an easier visualization, Save 1 was the abandoned run and Save 2 is the one I need suggestions: https://www.mediafire.com/file/t6wc0fiivkx5klk/2022_Fates.rar/file Any suggestion that doesn't involve online or dlc (even the free ones) are fine! I'll wait to do the extra content after the endgame 😄
  6. Hello, Been a while, but I need some help. For some reason only 1 of my characters can trade with someone. I've hacked up to chapter 3- Bandits of Borgo. Im thought it was a tutorial lock, but im making sure everyone plays on hard mode. Any and all advice is helpful as I started hacking with the new FEBuilder tool maybe a week ago, so im really bad. Thanks Alot -Ashton
  7. I recently got back into FE8 hacking after nearly a year and started working on a new project. Things were going smoothly until I finished making the third chapter where I realized that the water for the lakes weren't working. I've noticed that I have had similar troubles in the past I think all on chapter 3 (for the record water animations were working fine on both chapter 1 and 2). If someone a little more seasoned could help me that would be great!
  8. So, I recently got my hands on the Invisible Kingdom/Revelation side manga released for Fates. I’ve been translating it with online translators so I can read it, as I cannot read or speak Japanese, but there’s a few lines of dialogue that either the AI cannot detect the characters used or the translation comes out borderline nonsensical. Can anyone help translate these? Just a quick note—for the first two, the lines I need translated are the ones in black with a white border, in a font that resembles messy/quick handwriting.
  9. This is my first time posting here so I don't know if I'm doing this right. So, I'm playing the Lil' Manster translation of Thracia and in chapter 15 I picked the B route, which I don't regret, but I really wanted to have Sleuf, Misha and Amalda. Is there any way this is possible, like with cheats? That is, if it doesn't break the game. *Update: I'm in chapter 23 and I got all the characters I wanted so far but Saias is not appearing!
  10. 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 : (
  11. I accidentally passed down Dragon Ward to Kana instead of Swordfaire because I didn't know that skills that you learn during the paralogue get passed down to your kid. Does anybody have a castle with MALE Kana with Swordfaire? I'd really appreciate it. (Note: My avatar is female, so it has to be male Kana. I found someone with a female Swordfaire Kana, but that didn't help.)
  12. Okay new here, been playing with Febuilder and I have questions. 1. Is it possible for multiple class change routes, as an example say a knight into either a general, or great knight with a Knight's crest, or into a paladin, or general with a master seal? 2. Can you have more than 3 class up choices? 3. Aside from a limit of the 255 character limit, can you set randomized units or generic units? Like having commanders and each commander has a team of 5-7 generic units that can all class up and have their own items and stats? 4. Is there a way for multiple commanders on the world map, like sending Erika to her mission and then switch to Ephraim an do his mission? If so can you designate different units to each? 5. Where can I find the different patches for Fe8 like the skills system and others? 6. Where can I find free portraits, animations and more? 7. How do you add different types of shops like say a repair shop, or a recruiter, and is it possible to make a weapon forging shop. 8. Can you have multiple level flags, like alternative routes?
  13. I've been listening to the same songs for quite some time now and Spotify shuffle just ain't enough to keep them feeling fresh. Any of y'all wanna share some band recommendations? and some songs i should start off with? or just post your favorite bands or songs idk just share some music please. Preferably rock music 🙂
  14. Hi, I've played a fair bit of fire emblem but I just started playing through Sacred Stones for the 1st time on hard mode. I've just finished chapter 5 and I wanted to know if it's realistic to keep most/all units up with the main team by grinding a so that I can try different teams for different chapters and will this either take many hours of mindless grinding or turn the game into a complete faceroll? I ask because so far I already really like every single character in Eirika's army (apart from Artur, sorry bud) and I really want to try each and every one of them out on a run of the game so I can form my own opinions on them both as units and characters throughout the whole game. Typically whenever I play other games with infinite grinding such as awakening, birthrights, rev, etc. I tend to spend most of the game raising a vast majority of the units and then in the last 5ish chapters I'll pick out my favourites now that I actually have experience to base my decision on and build a team for endgame like that. I'd just like to know if this will work in Sacred Stones. Thanks a bunch in advance for any help or suggestions.
  15. I have restarted this chapter like 10 times. I can't recruit Joshua or get the villages without people dying. I have never played this game before but I thought the hardest difficulty would be fine.
  16. Hello Serenes Forest. I'm a long time FE fan, first time poster. I've been trying my hand at FE spriting as a sort of side hobby. But I'm not an artist by any means so progress has been terribly slow. Now I think I have a sprite sheet for Wonder Woman attacking with a sword that I am somewhat proud of (at least, it looks OK when I animate it to my untrained eye). But, I can't put it into a FE game due to something related to colors being messed up. When I try to requantize to only 16 colors on Usenti, it all glitches out and gets rid of the color I am using for Wonder Woman's borders. Any help? I read that for this type of thing you really need an experienced sprite who can help you get rid of colors. I tried the pixel joint color thread, but that seems way more abstract/theoretical than what I need. Thanks in advance. Of course, any comments/feedback about the sprite in general is appreciated. Just be gentle lol.
  17. Hello everyone! I just started the game a few days ago, and I'm loving it so far. I'm at chapter 10 on Ephraims route and wanted to know if it is worth killing the boss "Beran" there, he has 3 bows if I remember correctly so is it worth it to kill him, since he has a ton of health and I can't take him down easily. Also I would love some general tips on the game, since I haven't played any of the older games, ( I have only played Shadows of Valentia ). As you have may guess I picked this game to play since it was said to be one of the easiest games in the franchise. Another reason I wanted to try it is because there is no casual/no perma death mode, so I wanted to challenge myself to see if I can beat it with the least of deaths possible, since I haven't played with perma death ever. Sorry for rambling about, Im excited since I'm enjoying the series a lot. Edit: thanks for the help! I apriciete it a lot, I just finished the chapter where you get Ewan, so I guess I'm of to grinding him up a bit, since he is kind of useless as of now. I have another question though, are promotion items finite, and are they missable? I'm coming of Fe echoes where I just need to go to a statue so I'm not quite used to the item promotion system yet. Also if the items are hidden on enemies/villages, is there a list/map where they are shown so I don't miss anymore than I already may have missed.
  18. Serenes Forest has been having issue on my phone since yesterday. I can't post on topics, sent private messages or even access thing like my inbox or account options on my phone. If a try to make a topic it takes me to a blank page. Anyone know how to fix this? However all this thing work on my computer. Edit- Nevermind it finally started working again.
  19. There are many topics that I have I want to remove but the only problme I don't know where the thingy is can someone help me find it?
  20. Hi, I need help with a pairing, I'm in chapter 4 and I just conquered Silesse, I saw that Sylvia x Claud and Eirinys x Lewyn conversation didn't trigger because Lewyn is paired with Sylvia, but I want Lewyn with Eirinys and Sylvia with Claud, I read that killing the wrong lover erases the love points but that's not true, in Lewyn's lover it's still written "Sylvia". Is there a way to fix the pairings since killing Sylvia doesn't work?
  21. Hello, I was going to create custom supports for FE: Fates, but each time I try to compress GameData.bin into GameData.bin.lz, but each time I drop the GameData.bin file into FEAT, it does nothing. I tried Batch LZ77, but I don't have .NET 3.5 (This is another person's computer). Also, I cannot turn the .txt support file into a .bin.lz in FEAT. It just gives the same result. Also, when I put the custom supports into the "@U" folder (I have the European Special Edition), the supports don't show up. Here's my folder structure: SD/luma/titles/[titleid]/gamedata/m/@U I've heard that you need to hex edit on @UnassumingVenusaur's website, but I cannot open it (I don't want my family to think stuff)
  22. Hello my friends. It's been a while a group of friends want to play the same fire emblem game at the same time with each one controlling a character in the map, as if we were playing a D&D campaign. We accept suggestions of which game to play, especially if there are any good modded roms with this purpose, since I personally don't know any.
  23. So yeah... Fates is my first step into the land of the 3DS games, and only my 3rd FE game overall. My first 2 were Path of Radiance, followed by it’s sequel Radiant Dawn, and I’ve enjoyed these SO much that I really wanted to check out more of the series. Anyways, after a bit of research.. I ended up going with Conquest, as I personally found even Radiant dawn a bit too easy, even on hard mode (it was more annoying than hard, considering no enemy attack range, but w/e), and wanted a challenge. However, I feel I might be regretting my choice, not because I’m worried about the game being too hard, but because I have literally no experience with these game mechanics. So what I’m trying to figure out, and would like to know more about is the following: 1) How important is utilizing the pair-up and attack stance mechanics? Like is the game strictly balanced around using these as much as possible? 2) In regards to pair-up and attack stance.. let me know if I’m understanding it correctly. - For pair-up, you pair-up via in the ingame command, and upon pairing up.. you gain stat boosts (based on your support level with the unit you are paired with, along with additional stats based on units class). There is also some meter that builds up (how exactly does this fill up, is it based on attacking/per turn?), and when maxed, it automatically activates on your next battle negating all damage. I believe that’s extent of my knowledge on pair-up, if there is anymore mechanics/benefits that revolve around pair-up.. please let me know. - As for attack stance, this is automatically activated as long as you are adjacent to an ally unit, and when entering a battle, the unit you are adjacent to will also unleash an attack. I believe that’s the extent of my knowledge on attack stance. Does support bonuses also affect attack stance (or the units class?)? What dictates the amount damage that the non-lead unit will deal? Can the non-lead unit activate/proc combat skills? I’m assuming all weapon triangle advantage/disadvantage and weapon effectiveness is taken into account for the non lead unit? Who gets the bulk of the exp... the lead unit, or the one who dealt the final blow? 3) Promotion, seals, and so on. This part I’m completely lost on. I’ve tried reading into it, and instead I manage to get even more confused. If somebody can please explain to me how leveling and promotion works, along with a gist of how all the seals work, or even link me to something that does.. I’d really appreciate it. I don’t know if this is true or not, but it seems like it is incredibly easy to mess something up considering all the different avenues you can take in regards to promotion and using seals, and how and which skills you acquire and so on... and I’d like to benefit from these things as much as possible. 4) Is there a “calculations” page somewhere that I can refer to? On the main page of serenesforest.com, when choosing the 2 games I previously played (PoR & RD), there was a calculations tab that told me how hit rate/avoid is calculated, how attack speed is calculated along with the doubling threshold and so on. I don’t know where to look for any of this information all in one spot. In game it tells me you need 5 more speed than your enemy to double, but how is speed calculated in this game.. if the weapons don’t have weight? Is it just my listed speed value with no further calculation? Does Awakening and Fates use similar calculations, and if so.. can I just refer to the calculations tab on the awakening section? 5) The weapon triangle. I understand how it works in regards to: Swords/Magic > Axes/Bows > Lance/Hidden Weapons > Sword/Magic, what I want to know is what is the WTA/WTD in this game? 6) If there is any other general information, tips, or advice... or anything that will help for a first time playthrough, that would be absolutely awesome and much appreciated. Such as building supports, best weapons, good units, good skills, good classes, and so on. I’ve been trying to look for all this information, so I am sorry if it’s readily available, it’s just I keep finding basic guides of things I already know, or I find something else that just makes things even more complicating after reading it. Thing is I when play games like this, I like knowing how everything works and how my stats are calculated, and so on, so serenesforest has been a god send for me, but there seems to be a lack of general information on this game and I feel like I’m at the point where it’s not even worth getting into and checking out older FE titles instead. Or maybe I should play Awakening first to get a feel for the newer mechanics? I don’t know. Seriously, any help would be greatly appreciated, as I really want to give this game a chance as the the art style looks amazing to me, it seems to have a lot of depth (which I like, as long as I understand how everything is working), and it’s suppose to present good challenging gameplay.. which are all things I look for in a game like this. Thanks in advance to anyone that goes out of their way to leave a comment, and I apologize for asking so many questions at once.
  24. Hello everyone, I am (or was....) doing my 8th playthrough in general and the third on maddening. After I already did VW on maddening because of the golden home screen, I also did an AM run (NG+ this time). Even though I am not a big Fan of Edelgard I wanted to play her route on maddening (also NG+) just to say that I cleared all of the three house leader routes on maddening ( I don´t care about SS, It was not very appealing to me). I guess you all know that after the first 2-3 runs you get sick from exploring the monastery (or the first part in general) which in my case mainly consists of raising the motivation of your students in the dining hall and gardening. Anyway while playing with the Black Eagles I got bored as I got closer to the timeskip. Hence I stopped playing for a few months. Today I picked it up again and forgot or ignored the fact that I was/am in the "holy tomb month", were you are supposed to talk to Edelgard in the entrance room and follow her, in order to play CF. I was stupid enough to just ignore the condition to play CF, namely talking to Edelgard... I stopped playing right after my dumbass saved the game before the end of the month mission, so no more exploring... I guess it is not possible, but I am too desperate right now... so is there any possibility to restore overwritten Data/ save files? Or is intelligent systems maybe going to patch the conditions for CF route? (I know that that would be almost impossible, but I am just so goddamn upset because of my own stupidity...) Hope you guys can help me, even though I highly doubt it
  25. Hi! So I want to make some sprites by editing the current sprites. I can't find a transparent PNG of the beasts (taguel, cat laguz, dragon, etc). Does anyone know where I am able to find it? If so could you please post the images (transparent if possible! if not white background will be okay) here? Thank you!
