  1. Hello there, I recently started getting into hacking FE1 just out for curiosity. I just wondered how Pointers in there work exactly since I couldn't find a single one. I looked up in the internet and found this way for NES Pointers: Take the offset, subtract 10, delete the first number so you get a 2 bytes number. Flip the bytes and look for them in you game. As I mentioned I couldn't find a single one. Not for the menus, not for the text so I feel, like I need a bit help on this.
  2. hi folks, I'm gonna teach you how to insert portraits into FE4 so here's a step by step guide, pay attention class 1. First thing you need is a portrait, and the size of Jugdral saga portraits are 48x64. For this tutorial I'll use a picture of my furry kitten OC, Lamia. EDIT: Consult this post later on in this topic about a palette fix required for portraits as a very important first step: http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=43520#entry2683698 2. In order to format it correctly for insertion and to make the mouth movement accurate, this is what it needs to look like: It's much the same as GBA portrait insertion, although that's automated now Here's a guideline to where the mouth is replaced: Follow these above examples in order to prepare it for inserting. Once you have it correctly set up, save the portrait as a .BMP image type, as a later step requires it. 3. Download this makeshift ROM file (don't worry it's not an actual game, just a placeholder thing to help portrait setup): https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/9r4dvohoqwzbjk1/smcbase.smc?token_hash=AAGenK6zDLmUbVNrYWDqPMg6bHUwmIaecnQOHBJDPsPg_Q&dl=1 The above ROM is set to be just the right size to fit your portrait. Grab your favorite SNES graphics editor (YY-CHR, Tile Layer Pro, etcetera) and check for the Import Bitmap feature, choosing your portrait. The editor should be set to SNES, 4BPP. Once it's in, make sure you actually DO have 16 colors, and that the FIRST color in the palette is the background (black in this image). Don't worry about correcting the colors in the editor, since you'll need to adjust the palette of it in the ROM itself. If all 16 colors are registered but the background is using the wrong color (this happens to me in TLP), save it as an SMC and use YY-CHR's color-swapper tool for a quick fix. If you have trouble getting all 16 colors in (like, one or two are missing) then convert the BMP to a 16-color format with something like a GIF editor/animator like GIF Movie Gear. It will save BMP files to the minimum amount of colors, while preserving said colors unlike MSPaint. Once you have it set up, save your portrait as an SMC file (SNES ROM). This will make it ready to compress. 4. Speaking of the compressor, this is what you need: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/trx0vq6r6uca8zd/FEcompress.zip?token_hash=AAH8jd_A-CkoM87zZqMwSW5O9xow7-mxmnCY0vTK1FEV4w&dl=1 Contained within is a compressor for FE4 (and also FE3 but I don't have data on that) along with a readme. You don't need to have your portrait in the same folder as the program. If you have your SMC file of your portrait ready, all you have to do is drag your portrait's ROM onto the 'old' or 'new' FE4 compressor. I think the only difference really is that the newer one uses slightly less space, but I kept both of them in the zip in case of errors and whatnot. This will create a yourrom.BIN in the same folder as the file you dragged onto it. This BIN contains your compressed portrait data. 5. Refer to this data I stole from the FE4Binary collection: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/pcqetrlp75bz299/portraitaddresses.txt This contains all of the addresses of portrait data in the (headered) ROM. The numbers counting up are the reference, which is then used in the Portrait Pointer Editor in Nightmare. 00 is Sigurd, for example. The first address is the location of the compressed data. Sigurd's portrait is at A67B5. Now, open your portrait's BIN file in your hex editor of choice and copy all of the data. Find a portrait you want to replace (Sigurd in this guide), make sure you don't overwrite the next portrait, and replace one portrait's data with your own. Now, save the ROM, and open it up in your emulator to check if it loaded properly. 6. If you're successful, now's the time to change the palette. The second number in the portrait data list is the palette; Sigurd's is at CAA00. With this, all you have to do is figure out what is colored by what, and change it to the appropriate 256-color byte pair. Each single color uses 2 bytes. I personally use GBA Color Picker in order to match the colors as close as I can. To make a certain color in the palette more visible, I recommend setting one color to FF00, which turns it into a bright red, making it way easier to detect and find out what color it needs to be. Additionally, make sure that when adding your colors, the two bytes are switched around in the ROM. 7. After toiling around with that, along with all the testing and reloading, you should slowly see your portrait come to life within the game itself. 8. Eureka! Enjoy your inserted portrait.
  3. 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.
  4. Just gonna make one thread about all of my questions, including future ones, because boy I have a lot of them😐 1-Changing the items you get from talk events Ex: changing the Silver Sword Alvis gives to Sigurd to something else. 2-Battle animation pallettes. I can't find a clear way of changing the unique pallettes. You don't have to answer both questions. Anything helps!
  5. TL;DR: Save editing is indeed possible for Shadows of Valentia, but it's a little more complicated than that. So as we all know, SoV just recently was released in Japan, and was leaked even before the official JP release. Not much research has been done into saves, but theoretically, if it's anything like Fates, a save editor should be simple, right? Wrong. For some reason, IS decided to switch up the way saves were written, making them generally a headache to decipher. Here is what has been figured out about the saves so far: Items: Character Editing: To be added later Post any save editing discoveries you've made here as well!
  6. Apologies, I did my best to search the forum for a solution before asking a previously resolved question, but I am trying to figure out how to implement a feature I've been digging through both FEbuilder and the rom for patched Midori, and have yet to figure out A. how to split magic and strength or B. how to implement growths for stats like movement and Con (a la Midori/FE4) in an FE8 hacked rom Any answers are appreciated, even if it just "lol, can't be done in FE8, get nightmare and FE7, scrub" Thank you!
  7. As some of you might know, I am working on my hack Fire Emblem: Traitors Tale. It has been dead for some time, but I have come back to it. Last time I asked for help i waited 10 minutes and gave up, don`t worry, I learn from my mistakes(and suspensions). Returning to the original topics, I need to know how to make custom portraits. Could anyone lend so help?
  8. Hey, I'm making a ROM hack of FE6 and I was wondering how to edit the title screen where it says "Fire Emblem the Binding Blade"? If anyone knows how to edit the "Nintendo presents" part too that'd be helpful as well.
  9. Sorry if it's the wrong board to ask it, but could someone tell me the process/the needed programmes to edit a unit's joining level/base stats? I'm a complete layman when it comes to hacking so I would love some detailed explanations, thanks in advance!
  10. (First of all, sorry if this is not the right Forum to ask.) I was creating a little custom class of mine but I required a ''Infantry Sword user with Shield'' animations, I didn't think any of the already present sprites in FE meet all requirements so I started looking out for custom animations. I found one that was pretty much what I was looking for (''Squire'', from RusselClark, A Random Player, and Kobazco), but I ended up with some erros with it (and isn't really that good...sorry creators.) Then I noticed that the Soldier class has pretty much everything I want, but he uses a lance. I was hopping for a custom animation of the Soldier but with Swords, but even tough it looks like something easy to find (since all you actually need to change it's his weapon), I couldn't find it anywhere. I didn't want to be ''this guy'' but...I'm going to ask for help to find it. Please, if you found it anywhere or just happens to have one, point it to me. I'm happy to give any credit, as long as I know who's the creator. (Also, I guess I should say that English is not my Main language.)
  11. What is the best hacks or cheats for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia? I’m mainly looking for hacks or cheats to get the rare weapons, Astra, Sol, Luna and also easy level promotions, maxed stats, learned all weapon skills, and after all that, if it’s possible, save the file and not continuing the hacks or cheats. My OCD is killing me. Those items are way too hard to find and I don’t have the time to grind for them. :( Any help would be great!
  12. Hi everyone i doing a randomised run of FE8, unfortunately i soft locked on the phantom ship level as the boss that is a berserker and is spawned in the sea and thus can't move. i need changing the class of the boss into something that can move on sea titles, i tried using the class editor on nightmare but for some reason none of my changes save, even though i click apply and save. can someone please help me i really don't want this run to end
  13. Okay...So, first things first: English is not my main language, so...be ready for some erros, ok? Now, to the main question: Why's my Merlinus don't getting any type of Battle Animation? I'm trying to make a hack room where he's going to be a cavalier, but I already tried everything: Changed his class to cavalier, tried to make the wager into a cavalier, put freaking cavalier animations on the wager, also tried with others classes, etc. but nothing of those worked! What's his problem anyway? I need to change a specific ''number''? By the way, I'm using FEditor.
  14. I was wondering if anyone had music from golden sun that was compatible with sappy since sappy usually doesn't take golden sun music.
  15. I made a simple editor that allows changing class, stats and inventory of a unit which can be found here: https://github.com/vince11/FESOV-SaveEditor/releases You need to use FEST to decompress the save as I have not added it in the code. Instructions: Dump save file using a save manager (e.g. JKSVM) Make a back up just in case Use FEST to decompress the save file to get "Chapter_dec" file. https://github.com/RainThunder/FEST Run program, Click File -> Open, select the decompressed file and edit stuff Once finished, Click File -> Save and compress the file using FEAST Note: Item changing will work best if each unit has an item. You can only edit a unit's item if they are holding something. Sometimes if a unit is not holding an item it accesses the item of the unit below them (not going to break your save file) You need the DLC loaded to access dlc items/classes Max stats of the unit does not scale with the class as I don't have data for it, so max stats is the max stats https://serenesforest.net/fire-emblem-echoes-shadows-valentia/characters/maximum-stats/ (Cipher characters' max stats are just placeholders) Thats All!, I am not very good at coding so feedback would be appreciated.

    Chapter Unit Limit Question

    How do you/is it possible to increase the character/unit limit on a chapter? For instance, say a chapter only allows you to bring 11 heroes into battle; is it possible to change that limit from 11 to 16 (exclusively using Nightmare)? I know adding enemy units isn't, but I wasn't sure if this was different. Thank you, and sorry if this is a dumb question!
  17. Hey there everybody! I've been something of a long time lurker on Serenes, but I figured I should Introduce myself! I stream a TON of Fire Emblem and Pokemon, particularly with a focus on silly Rom Hacking. You might recognize me from my association with Mangs, for whom I am a scriptreader/editor for his character spotlight videos. Drop on by my discord for a general good time, and to get updates on when I'm streaming! we also have a nsfw section. Enjoy if u wish XD MODEDIT: we have our own discord, don't advertise yours LUNAEDIT: oops, sorry about that. MODEDIT: no worries cheers, welcome to sf
  18. So yes i have cfw and all that jazz. Im curious as to how I can put a specific model on a specific character despite class. Ive seen it done before but its never explained. An example would be Keeping Rinkahs original body on a promoted class shes in. Or keeping Camilla in her original outfit despite being an unmounted class. Or lets say, Giving Arete's body model to one of my characters. Any help would be great.
  19. So im still trying to figure out how to go about this. I want to add fe7 and maybe some fe 8 spell into fe 6. Could someone give me some tips or point me in the right direction?
  20. Hey there all; I've been wanting to create my own sort of Fire Emblem Fates hack (for the Special Edition) and there's a lot I want to do, but I want to handle them all one at a time. To start this off, first I've wanted to alter the stats of the classes, weapons, items, and characters in Fates before I get to things like animations, but if there's one thing I'm still stumped on in how it works and like to confirm, its enemy/npc/joining cast growth rates and their relation to base stats. In FEFEditor, there are terms like Str? right before a number (for example there was Sorcerer with Magic? = 65 or something like that); what I want to know is this: are these terms for the enemy/npc/joining cast growth rates and how they scale with levels, and if so, how do these numbers play off of the base stats? For example, if I have a base stat of 0 for any stat, will any growth number change that through higher levels for enemies/npcs/joining cast or not? And if that stat is 12 instead, is the stat increase based on how high the number is (like if the growth rate is 35% vs it being 85%)?
  21. Hi all, To give some context, me and a friend have been working on a full romhack of FE8 for about a year. We replaced the prologue through to chapter 8, then decided we'd rather not deal with the hardcoded route-split stuff, so from there we've been working over the Tower of Valni (1-8) and the first two chapters of the Lagdou Ruins, with the replacement for Lagdou Ruins 2 being the game's final chapter. However, trying to load the epilogue from here seems to cause some issues. Here's my ending scene: I know that the ending scene loads properly because the background / text stuff all appears properly. MNC4 0x0 is the code found at the end of the normal game (21x) which loads the epilogue. When I save after this ending scene, the save gets written over saying "epilogue" as if it's working properly, but then instead of loading the epilogue it loads... the exact same chapter that was just finished. I don't think this problem is exclusive to Valni / Ruins chapters, since I tested by placing MNC4 0x0 at the end of one of my earlier chapters, and the same issue occurred. So I think the problem must be that the game doesn't want to load the epilogue while it's still in the pre-split Eirika's route? But I'm not sure. If anyone has experience with this or knows how to work around it, I'd greatly appreciate it!
  22. Hey there. New to this forum, but not the Fire Emblem community. I have been lurking in the shadows and now I am back to enjoy the lovely land of rom hacking. But, I am taking a break from learning the ropes to indulge myself in a nice PME run. Here are the rules: NOTHING from the PME of more well known FE community members/Youtubers. (IE: Lords always being dancers from Mangs or anything Amelia-is-bad Meme that also is a Mangs thing. Not that I am some whiny Amelia fanboy. I want to use every character at least twice in the run, and I want it to pertain to me. Not riding on the coat tails of someone more well known. That would be a huge disservice to Mangs and how awesome he is.) I would like to have promotions be a singular branch. I feel it would be more challenging and also ... the multi promotion shit was always useless in FE 8 due to how one class was always overshadowed by a better class. As an avid lover of the Halberdier class in FE 9&10 I would love to have at least one soldier. Maaaaaagic is liiiiife. (Jesus that was cringey) Previous characters from other FE games or Characters from future games are allowed. I will allow one original character in the game as long as it isn't to ... Mary-Sue-like. Have at it, boys!
  23. I've run into this issue whilst hacking FE8 on chapter 2, although I'm not sure if the chapter itself is the problem. So, when I load my units, everything is fine at first, as seen in this image: https://imgur.com/mWs7e2O But whenever I restart this chapter, (by using the in-game menu option) for some reason the cleric and the knight change classes to a knight and a paladin respectively: https://imgur.com/sw0q9w5 This doesn't occur when hard-resetting the emulator or resuming the chapter. (although the changes will be there if resuming after restarting the chapter) If it does mean anything, the two units in question here are being loaded using the LOAD2 command, as they had appeared in the previous chapter, where they were loaded using LOAD1 and below is the unit pointer bracket which they are being loaded in, along with the other two allied units, who appear to be fine. And when they change into the class, they retain all of their current stats and weapon ranks and inventory, so they don't appear to be loading as completely different units. I've attached the event script below, including the code where I load them in. For reference, the two units experiencing this issue are Gilliam (Sword Knight) and Franz (Cleric).

  24. Fire Emblem: Awakening uses a font called Chiaro Std B Bold, which is the same font The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask use. (Not the 3DS remakes, however.) It can be found here. 7th down from the top. Unfortunately I couldn't quiiiiiteee get the spacing and formatting 100% accurate to in-game, but if anyone figures it out for a 240p image, let me know! I hope fan works really can use this! -Robotortoise Also here's the stupid thing I did with the font
  25. Hello everyone, I've hacked both FE7 and FE8 before, and am looking to work on a quick FE11 project for a friend. The sources on how to hack both Blazing Sword and Sacred Stones are extremely plentiful and I was able to completely learn how to hack those on my own. However, I haven't been able to find any information on hacking Shadow Dragon or FE12. I'm looking mostly to edit some dialogue and text within a chapter and to alter how some events happen. Doing so in both Sacred Stones and Blazing Sword is fairly simple, but I'm completely clueless as to how Shadow Dragon handles this sort of editing. Again, the lack of resources online has put me in an odd situation where I'm not sure what's even possible, much less what I can do with what I've got. Is there anyone here who has experience hacking Shadow Dragon and would be willing to give me a quick rundown on what I'd need to do? I have plenty of programming experience, so if things need to get messy with tables and such, I can work with that. Thanks in advance!
