  1. Let's call this my forum Debut. I'm here because, after lurking for a while, I've looked around and gotten really into a couple of Let's Plays. So, following in that train of thought, I'm bringing you a Let's Play from a patch right here in the Forest. It's called Monster Quest, and the patch is for Sacred Stones. The premise? All of your dudes (with the exception of the Lords and Tethys) are monsters. I haven't actually played this before, so I'll be learning it as I go.
  2. Hey all, I’m a complete amateur (haven’t touched anything more complicated than FEBuilder and Nightmare) who’s drafting an FE8 hack. While this isn’t even a plan, I was wondering what adding RNG into combat calcs would look like. For example, what if I wanted Avoid to be calculated as AS*2 + (Luck*Random number between 1 and 2)? I’m also familiar with the concept of piecewise graphs in math, and was wondering if it’s possible to have altered damage calcs based on the participants’ current HP/max HP. Thanks to anyone who can help.
  3. Man, born from dust, was strong, wise, and resourceful. But he was born into an unforgiving world. The soulless creatures of Grimm threatened to return Man's brief existence to the void. However, even the smallest spark of hope is enough to ignite change, and in time Mans passion, resourcefulness and ingenuity led them to the tools that would help even the odds. This power was appropriately named, Dust. Natures wrath in hand, Man lit their way through the darkness, and in the shadows absence came strength, civilization, and most importantly, life. ...or so the legends say. (Thanks to Eldi13 for the title screen background) Intro ----- Fire Emblem: Dust to Dust is a FE8/RWBY crossover hack, set in a Fire Emblem version of Remnant. Despite living in a hostile land, stalked by the soulless creatures of Grimm, the world at large has been at peace for generations. Everything changes when the White Fang, a once peaceful Faunus rights organization, attacks the kingdom of Schnee without warning. This sudden act of terrorism will ignite a fire that consumes all of Remnant, and lay bare the terrible truth of their world. Demo patch now available! Consists of one demo-exclusive chapter: GET IT NOW Stuff! ----- [spoiler=Story!] PART I OUTLINE Prologue: White Fang forces assault Castle Schnee without warning, and Weiss is forced to fight her way out and flee to Vale with a small group of retainers. Her father remains behind for some reason. Chapter 1: On the border of Vale, they are found and attacked by White Fang scouts. They must defeat the scouts quickly before the main force arrives. Chapter 2: Weiss reaches Beacon but her location is betrayed by Mercury and Emerald. The White Fang infiltrate Beacon and Weiss and co must fight them off while protecting the students.Following the failed attack, Mercury and Emerald escape to report to the mysterious Cinder. Weiss decides to leave before reinforcements arrive. Ozpin gives her some supplies and sends some allies with her, but cannot do more. Chapter 3-4: They decide that the best course of action is to seek refuge in Atlas. They require a guide to get through Forever Fall. Ruby offers to take them if they will help her find Yang in the forest. They enter the forest and fight off waves of Grimm, where they find Yang defending a wounded Blake. Passing through the forest, they reach the home of a Gelb, a distant Schnee relative. He is creepy and unpleasant, but his castle is well fortified and he is definitely not White Fang. He tells them that Winter is currently in Atlas, but the Atlesian politicians are cowards and will never agree to help. Chapter 5: Blake is uneasy and sneaks out of her room that night. She discovers that Gelb is enslaving Faunus and forcing them to fight captured Grimm for sport. With his crimes revealed, Gelb turns on the group, using the slaves as human shields. Chapter 6: Faced with the reality of Faunus subjugation, Weiss wonders if the White Fang is justified. Blake reveals herself as a Faunus, and condemns the White Fangs disregard for innocents. Suddenly she tackles Weiss just as an arrow flies in the window. The army must hold the line against waves of White Fang troops. Finally when all hope seems lost, a squadron of Pegasus Knights led by Winter swoops in, followed closely by the Atlesian military smashing into the rear of the White Fang. Chapter 7: Weiss and Winter return to Castle Schnee with the full might of Atlas behind them. While the Atlesians launch a feigned frontal assault, Weiss and co sneak into the castle via secret passages and take the White Fang by surprise. They defeat the White Fang Lieutenant and retake the castle. Its too soon to celebrate, however. They soon discover that all of the Dust in the castle is gone, stolen by the White Fang. Was this their real motive all along? Winter has more bad news she promised to give Atlas huge amounts of Dust in exchange for their aid. The Atlesian senators are irate and take control of Castle Schnee. Meanwhile, Ruby runs into a strange girl named Penny. In a darkened room, Cinder meets with one of the senators.

  4. Hello, and welcome to Terper's (that's me!) Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones Rewrite Project. The name's a placeholder until I can think of a catchy, melodramatic title. Just call it "Rewrite" for short or whatever you'd like. The Sacred Stones is a pretty cool game. It's got monsters and dragons and swords and sorcery and branching promotions which is like, whoa. But I also think the plot is sort of undercooked. Our two main leads are fairly static characters who do not really grow or change. Immediately after her castle is taken, Princess Eirika gives a short speech about how she must not give in to despair, and proceeds to not give in to despair. And that's fine, I guess, but I want to see her deal with the events taking place around her in a more interesting way. I want to see her come to terms with her place in this conflict and grow as a person! And from that budding desire to change a few things about our main characters eventually grew this beautiful* need to change how pretty much the entire plot plays out. So one day I decided: Hey! It would be very productive and not at all a waste of time to rewrite the story of FE8 from almost top to bottom. Behold, some images from the intro: Fascinating. But that is, of course, only working with what is already there, just changing and adding a few words here and there, adding a little bit of emotion. That's boring. So I have also added some entirely new scenes that give further development. Here are some pictures of that, but not too many, because I want you to experience them in the game itself: So let me lay down the law here: This is not a relocalization. By which I mean this is a rewrite. The story and the characters WILL differ from the original author's intent and I apologize if I change things in ways you don't like. I'm sorry. This means that if you encounter any discrepancies between how characters exist in this hack and how they are in the Original/Heroes/Cipher/Japanese Original, well then there should be a reason for it. Hopefully a decently good one. At times I might have rewritten a perfectly fine line for no good reason just because the mood struck me. As of the time that this thread goes up, I have rewritten everything between the Prologue up until the Route Split (spoilers: There will be no route split. A) Because I'm lazy and B) Because it limits the characters' development if our two leads can't be together and interact and talk and grow). I have not rewritten Supports yet. I'm going to. If there are only a few minor issues in this current patch, then I will not update the patch until I am done with Chapter 16. After that will be the final major update with the rest of the story, and then a couple of eventual bug fixes and quality assurance stuff after that. What you should know going into this: If anyone in your party dies, it's game over. Let me repeat that: If Anyone Dies, It's Game Over. This includes enemy units that you can recruit. Killing Joshua in Chapter 5 will cause a Time Paradox. Keep your save states ready. Or the reset button. I'm sorry if you love to Ironman. The story will assume that you have recruited everyone. Please do not go around Joshua and "forget" to recruit him in an attempt to spite me just because I won't let you kill him. Not only would that be very rude, he will still show up in the story, and you will only have yourself to blame for this. Shame on you. You can't play on Easy because I'm using some of those tutorial prompts for new scenes. I have made a few gameplay changes here and there and they are basically untested. Please give feedback on that. Also please give feedback if anything breaks/you encounter some odd glitch. I have never hacked before. This is scary. Some of these gameplay changes are made for story-purposes, some are things I think could be rad. Please also give feedback and share your thoughts on what you think of the story since this is a story-focused hack. I would like that. I try to be woke, so if you find anything unwoke, then please bring it to my attention. English is not my first language and though I think I'm pretty good at it, if you encounter anything weird, well then that's why. If you find any typos or weird sentences, do mention them. Reviews: If this interests you, then rev up your favorite UPS patcher and apply THIS PATCH to your rom. If you don't know how to do this, just google "UPS Patcher". I believe in you. A list of significant enough gameplay changes that they warrant mention: Every single thing in here is subject to change at my whimsy.
  5. Hello everyone! I'm currently making an Let's Play for The Sacred Stones. Specifically, I'm doing an Ironman run on Hard using a Changes-Lite patch I made. Here's a link to the first episode. And here's a link to the full playlist (you don't need to watch the intro). I'll be uploading daily, so if your interested, be sure to check it out. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to let me know. I hope to see you there!
  6. Welcome to my Changes-Lite Patch for The Sacred Stones! The Goal of this Patch was to make the least amount of changes to the base game for the greatest positive result. I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys the base game, but is looking for a tighter experience with a handful of quality-of-life patches sprinkled in. If you’d like to learn more about the patch, I’ve created a video detailing what I believe to be some of the more important changes found within the patch. If you want to try the patch out yourself, or just learn more about it, feel free to click the links below: Changelog UPS Patch How to apply a UPS Patch (Thanks Arch!) If your interested, I’m also making a Let’s Play using the patch, so be sure to check it out. To those of you who made it this far, thank you for your interest! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to let me know. Enjoy!
  7. Didn't see a topic yet so here we are~ Here's the clear though~ Featuring one of my favorite builds, the TANKLISE! Wasn't really an easy way to approach this map without getting blown back so with some stat stacking, we just decide to unleash HS!Elise's inner wall~
  8. i'm not new to fire emblem games and have done lunatic playthroughs of three houses and shadow of valentia. i've heard that sacred stones is pretty easy, even without grinding, so would it be better for me to go straight to difficult mode, or should i do a normal playthrough first and a difficult playthrough another time?
  9. Hi, TL;DR at the bottom if you don't want to read the whole thing including my personal experience with the challenge and my opinion on the route split + the choice deriving from there. Yesterday I started a Fire Emblem TSS playthrough with ONLY steel weapons/D-rank tomes and staves. Currently at ch7, so far the beginning was chaotic, since Seth is the only one with a steel weapon and the rank to even use it until ch2, where the *#@! armory doesn't sell steel weapons during the chapter (while it sells them on the global map THAT'S ANNOYING I was 2 uses away from not being able to complete this at all due to steels having 30 uses and chapter 2 being a rout map, BTW it's "rout", not "route", that is used to call a decimation objective, "route" is the way you go). After ch2 was completed, I could finally sell all of trash weapons and my heal staff to buy 3 steels to Garcia who soloed ch3-4 and 40% of ch5 until Vanessa visited the south-eastern, the western and the north-western villages, baiting the bandits away from Garcia who didn't have any elixir left to heal and finally visited the armory to send steel lances and swords to the supply. After that Gilliam caught up to and left Garcia collecting dust even with less level ups since Garcia's speed is barely better than Gilliam by level 10-20 and Garcia's def is a joke when Gilliam basically doubles it by level 10-12 and only gets better from there, on top of having 0 speed penalty with steel, which makes him about as fast as Garcia in a few level ups. Franz is unusable, don't bother with him, really, he'll never double with anything other than steel sword and he can't even use them before promo since he starts with a useless E rank in swords. With a steel lance, he can't hit shit and gets a 4 speed penalty. y stat screwed Kyle reached 11 str, 10 spd/def around level 10/11 so he can at least be a passable Duessel light with +1 con to wield steel swords without a penalty and only -1 speed with steel lances after promo. Vanessa...how to say it, well, until wyvern lord promo, instead of having mediocre accuracy with iron and inexistant damage, she has Franz-level accuracy and -8 speed with steel, so it's like she starts with Gilliam's speed only she has 8 points more in it so she will cap at 12 effective speed after you/I manage to feed her exp while she's really hot garbage (I already have trouble feeding her kills before ch4 in a normal playthrough sine it's axe land with an archer in each one, but here she's a liability more than anything else, for real, 17 HP 6 def 3 speed is 3 HP less than Franz with the same speed, it's unusable). Ephraim while being stuck at 7/8 def around lv 10 has at least 14/15spd to double with steel, which is the best I can hope from a non promoted unit since GBA weight/con system is hot garb (while it may seem logical, it only makes light units a liability since everything above E rank ways them down and lowers massively their generally only tank stat, which is speed for dodge). So, my combat units (that I of course recommend) are Seth, Garcia since he's the only unit usable from chapter 3 to 5 and a half (thanks IS for this hot garbage that are early game shops, selling slims instead of steel while slim deals no damage and the crit is highly unneeded since most units would deal more with iron or steel without needing to rely on 8% crit chance, and of course the only staves I can buy at this point are torches because ch5 shop doesn't even sell the D rank healing staff, and D tomes are impossible to get at all before like chapter 9 Eirika's route or 10 Ephraim's route so mages are perfectly unusable), Gilliam (#2 after Seth, as I guessed before playing), Vanessa is level 3 and didn't gain a single point of speed so she won't ever fight again, useless unit only good to travel through the map without doing anything out of it except visiting villages. Kyle will soon replace Gilliam as the #2 unit, while Joshua is equal to Garcia since he's faster but takes less of a beating in return for having more chances of killing. Once Moulder promotes into a sage he'll use that juicy Inferno tome in Eirika's route. Why people say Ephraim's route is harder is beyong me, Duessel nearly solos the phantom ship, trained Ephraim is better than Seth unless Seth is already level 14+ which is unlikekly since if you don't feed him every ennemy on each map he should be lower level, I typically feed him the dodgy ennemies or the ones that are annoying to deal with like the cavaliers on the top-side of ch6 and the Halberd looting fighter for Garcia's contribution later on, still these 3 units are all you need with a pure water per guy to tank the eyeballs, and actually Ephraim!Cormag is garbage until ch12 because ch11 has FoW and mixed magic/phyical damage so he's dying very fast with his garbage speed and shaky con because wyverns have lower con than they should, male wyvern lords having paladin con and male wyvern knights having even less which is ridiculous for dragon riding classes. Really, Ephraim's route is Seth, Ephraim and chosen cavalier storming every map unless you impose yourself a challenge, the only hard to beat map is 14 but still if you're not into full completion of treasures/recruitment then it's actually easie than Eirika's route, since Duessel basically solos the rest of the game at base with a speedwing or 2 to double without the Garm. On Eirika's route side objectives like getting the 2 villages in ch9 for the 2nd rapier, the dragonshield and the angelic robe bonus, recruiting Marisa without killing Gerik in ch10 (screw sleep staff spammer seriously, may he burn in Hell for a million years over and over) on top of that this chapter has falcon knight+pegasi 5 women formation with a few wielding steel lances to deal actual damage and a stealable talisman that requires you to go out of your way to level up Colm until he has at least 15 speed and can survive 2 hits from steel lance pegasi/the falcon knight and a ruby to steal to the myrmidon near the boss, a ranger with a steel bow who can one shoot Vanessa/Tana I guess unless she's very trained but even then she would die to anything coming at her if she takes a hit from that ranger, namely the pegasi with steel lances who can get her even in the mountains. Ch11 is easier than phantom ship but is annoying due to the map split, ch12 is filler, ch13 sends you a LOT of ennemies all at once a la Awakening, many of which are cavaliers, has 2 or 3 ballistas that you need to seize before you get poked from everywhere and can't use any flier at all, Aias is way harder to beat than LOLSelena who dies to any cavalier effective weaponry, while Aias has HP and def and packs a punch (pure waters give 7 res and you get several for free from the beginning of the game, so magic ennemies are mostly useless for anyone with 5/6 res and enough luck to not eat a bolting/thunder crit). Also Ephraim's route can promote 2 heroes while Eirika's can only promote one until chapter 14, which means one less promoted unit to play with, it's far more restricting since knight crests are also very restricted with the second being held by Aias himself so not usable before the end of ch13, you are fighting with Seth, Gerik or Garcia or Joshua and one paladin/Gilliam until ch14. Ch14 is also very annoying as unlike Ephraim's, it's a maze where you don't see the stats/formation of the ennemies before you open the door, which is very tricky especially when the bottom-left room has a knight guarding 4 or 5 shamans, so you need a really tanky unit to survive that or you have to disarm the facing unit and kill the knight after the ennemy turn and then clear the shamans. All in all I think Ephraim's route is much more reliant on stats while Eirika's relies on strats. And Duessel is RNG-proof, while Innes and Saleh don't have such an insanely easy ennemy phase (Duessel literally takes 1 pure water, 1 elixir/potion and 3 hand axes and solos the game from ch 11 onwards with 0 investment and berserk doesn't hurt him much since he doesn't have eight move to come at your team and kill it like Seth would). So I chose Eirika's route, because it's less of a slugfest and there are more monsters for my steel party to kill (on top of that, I can let Eirika rot on someone's horse so she'll never be able to cause me a Game Over, while Ephraim would be wasted if he was left to collect dust, and Ephraim's route ch 15 is very easy to screw up with Eirika's starting position and her inexistant stats to survive wyverns), and Innes and Saleh will see use as the first useful archer at base and the first mage who has instant access to D rank weapons at a time he can actually buy them. I'll certainly feed a robe and a dragonshield to Saleh so he can be as good as Franz on EP. Saleh is like the only unit that can use a 1-2 range weapons with stats that make it useful without grinding if you can't use E-ranks at all like in this challenge. Syrene will be useful with a steel sword and a pure water to hunt magic users and doesn't need anything other than her base stats and pure water to take negative damage from any unpromoted magic ennemy, she could maybe even take out the Fimbulvetr sage with a pure water, but I'm not sure, I don't have his stats and Fimbulvetr's damage in mind. Of course the fina boss will be killed with legendary weapons since it's impossible otherwise without luck (pierce activation) and Shine with slayer doesn't even scratch him unless it's capped magic but no one will have capped magic as a bishop in a grindless playthrough. That's it, I gave the challenge and my choices/advice. TL;DR: Never use anything (edit) OTHER (end of edit) than steel weapons, D-rank staves and D-rank tomes except for the final boss, good luck. Gilliam will save your ass, try not to overlook him for once, since Franz and Vanessa are useless with steel lances only available from chapter 5 onwards and steel swords requirind D rank Franz doesn't even have at base. Basically both have Gilliam's speed, but neihter of them has HP or defense to take hits and even less to take double attacks. The only things Vanessa can last hit/OHKO are Mogalls and soldiers/mercenaries. Everything else she should stay far away from. Don't bother raising your pegasi. Kyle is the only worthy cavalier as a steel locked unit.
  10. I started this a while ago. I just wanted to make this post here for those who haven't seen the first post about this. I will link the first post as I just wanted info on Ephraim's Route so I knew what exactly to do to make it at least make it harder in the right way. The link will also give access to the original version. https://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?/topic/85337-what-makes-ephraims-route-easy-in-fe8-fe8-maniac-mode/ < Link to original post. If you want to see the changes between patch 1.1 and the Original that I have done I will keep it in a spoiler area. There were some chapters I have done on Ephraim's route that are now done. The chapters have not been test yet so they may be changed as needed. If you want to see changes to the characters I will leave them in the spoiler area below.(Info on route split is not in here yet). I plan to finish Ephraim's route before the end of this month but that could change if I can't finish it from other issues that me or anyone else finds. Fire Emblem - The Sacred Stones Maniac Mode V1.1.ups I just wanted to put out the new patch real quick with some notes on the changes I have made. Fire Emblem - the Sacred Stones Maniac Mode V1.2.ups The changes are in the spoiler below. Ephraim's Route has been updated to chapter 19 but is not balanced yet as well as Erika's route not being fully balanced yet. I may have more balance changes done fairly soon. Sorry that this was a day late, I am putting this out now since I committed to getting it out. Fire Emblem - the Sacred Stones Maniac Mode V1.3.ups There wasn't many changes besides chapters being changed for maniac up to both endgames now I will be rebalancing the rom from here on. Though I find it odd that if you change Chapter 21x on one side you do it to the other so if anyone manages to beat Erika's route that map will be the exact same.
  11. I recently found a way to play the GBA Fire Emblem games, and started Eliwood's mode a short while ago. I'm not a fan of resetting or using save states, but I also don't know how Ironman-friendly these games are for a blind player, hence the question in the title. I'm curious how well the GBA Fire Emblem games handle giving the player enough units so that if one falls, another could fulfill a similar role, if they pace out when you get said units, if there are any nasty surprises in store for someone playing blind, and so on. I have completed Awakening and Shadow Dragon Ironman runs before, so it's not my first rodeo, but I don't know whether ironmanning these games during my first playthrough is a good idea or not.
  12. Heya ~ Using FE8, FEBuilderGBA So I've returned to my hack after a while because I couldn't fix an issue with Chapter 9 (Distant Blade). I have edited the unit spawns but they seem to still appear in their original positions for the map (with one unit spawning on top of another). When in preparation you can move almost all the units back to my chosen spawn points (with exception to lord units), but that's not really a fix. My immediate assumption was there are some route split shenanigans to deal with.. Like I said it's been months since I was working on my hack so I'm rusty on most things atm.. be kind ^^ Thanks in advance for any help!
  13. As the title implies I'm curious as to how such a thing could be accomplished with as much stability as possible. At present it's just for a little project me and a friend are working on for our own amusement and as anyone new to this sort of enterprise we started tossing ideas at the wall. One of the most common things we ended up coming up with were classes/characters that wielded physical and magical means of combat at the same time. At the moment my computer doesn't want to cooperate and search directly search on this site how much it's been asked about, but the only thing i could find was a several year old conversation with empty links in it. Sorry if this question is answered and I couldn't find it or if this message is a little choppy. I have a ton of information i'm absorbing right now. Thanks in advance! 😄
  14. Good night! Tonight I want to suggest a challenge on FE 8: TSS. The concept is this: make the route split real. In hard mode no grind of course. Rules: 1. Ephraim route will never use any unit from Eirika's route past chapter 8. Not even Colm. I suggest you keep your keys for Ephraim's chapter 9 otherwise you will miss the ocean seal worth 5k gold which will be your only item worth gold for quite some time if I recall correctly. 2. Not only units : Eirika's inventory is Eirika only and every item in the supply gotten before chapter 8 will be discarded and every unit prior to chapter 8 outside Eirika and Kyle/Forde will be killed before the route split (you can kill Colm after it for convenience). 3. The only exception to rule 2. is ch7 knight crest, which is given to either of Ephraim's guards before ch9 (ideally after the route split and before entering the first route exclusive chapter) so that you have a Seth-like Jagen and a normal cavalier. 4. You can and should raise both cavs in ch5x (because it's more convenient for ch9 and 10 and also because the next point is quite restrictive). 5. Your chosen prepromote: Kyle: he must have a speed inferior to 13 before promotion and be level 1 promoted for ch9. The goal is to have a mini-Duessel with 8 movement. Forde: he must not be able to ORKO ch9/10 units (at least the mercenaries) after promotion. He must also be level 1 promoted for ch9. None can get any exp as a paladin before ch9. Forde will be a mini-Seth but he will certainly struggle doubling or ORKOing for the whole game, thus I suggest that Kyle is the one early promoting since being mini-Duessel for what's left of the game is better than being inferior to both Seth and Titania. At least with lv 20 stats he can remain useful for the whole game. 6. If you want to make the route split even more real, you must also kill Innes and Saleh when they come back, bye bye to their inventories too. Eirika will have to find her path alone to Ephraim unless you can send someone from Ephraim's group to help her. 7. To continue on the same settings, I suggest you kill Gerik and Tethys without taking their inventories. They're more Eirika's underlings by being Innes' mercenaries than they are Ephraim's. 8. Dozla, L'Arachel, Ewan, Marisa, Cormag, Duessel, Tana, Amelia, Rennac, Myrrh, Knoll and Syrene are all usable, either because they're route neutral (Marisa is an ennemy anyway, Amelia too, Ewan recruits Marisa, he's also your only mage besides promoted L'Arachel, Rennac is an ennemy recruited by L'Arachel, Myrrh is glued to Ephraim and Knoll is purely coming from Ephraim's route since he comes from Grado's prison, Cormag comes in Gerik's place in Ephraim's route with the same settings and Syrene comes post reunion so she's allowed on both routes, and L'Arachel is recruited in the same conditions in both routes). 9. Eirika can use the ch5 skill tome and dragonshield, otherwise she's useless in the last chapter. She has to be used only in the Endgame (promote her before the final chapter). The other chapters she has to be benched (except ch8 where she must clear her entry room by herself and can help for the last parts of the chapter, if you're short on ch5x potions and elixirs, since Ephraim and his guys are forbidden to use the supply and Eirika's inventory). She also must be the only unit to take kills in her team before the route split. It is a good way to make her at least playable in the Endgame, and with so few decent units you'll need all the fighting force you can get. For Eirika's route: 1. Choose between pre-route split group and post-route split. If you choose pre-route split, Seth is forbidden. If you choose post-route split, he's the only unit who can be used alongside Eirika, Tana and Amelia in ch9. You can even choose to kill him after Innes' group has joined, since you don't need a Jagen anymore, Gerik is OP and Eirika's route doesn't need to rush before Rennac's recruitment. If you use Seth, he must have base speed before chapter 9. Good luck getting both villages for the angelic robe! 2. No unit from Ephraim's route is allowed (Cormag, Duessel, Knoll, Myrrh are forbidden) and if you consider Tana to be Ephraim's wife before Eirika's friend, then she can only be used for ch9 village rescue. If you play with pre-route split units of course none of ch9 onward units are playable, including Tana (you'll need to ferry Eirika to Innes in that case, which is harder than talking to Innes with Tana). 3. Any pre-route split unit used must be at the same level Ephraim's group would be if you chose Ephraim's route, and Gilliam or Franz must be Jagenized with the same rule as Kyle (well, Gilliam must be at 13 def max before promotion since it implies 15 def after promo which is already overkill for Eirika's route, but honestly pre-promoting Gilliam is 100% better than Franz, at least Gilliam will be useful without doubling everyone while Franz would be trash). 4. Same rule for inventory and supply, same restrictions as Ephraim's route, Eirika only once your units are on equal level with Ephraim's group in the Ephraim's route scenario. It's like Eirika is your Jagen XD. Pre-route split units are forbidden to use pre-route split stat boosters or to carry anything other than their initial inventory into ch9 onwards. 5. Forde and Kyle must be killed once you've completed ch5x, manage Ephraim's inventory wisely! He will carry it to the Endgame with the Solar Seal and Siegmund! If anything seems vague, you can ask me or suggest your complements to these rules. Have...fun? LoL.
  15. This is a breakdown of Eirika's character and growth over the course of Fire Emblem 8. Much thanks to @Icelerate for co-writing this (he wrote the green parts) and @Yexin and @BergelomeuSantos for providing screenshots. This will cover the entirety of the story, followed by Eirika's Endings and Supports. Also, I got permission from @eclipse to split this up into multiple posts if I was having problems and SF gets really laggy when making long posts, so I hope you allow these consecutive ones! Edit: I can't edit the other posts so I've moved Act 3 to this one (alongside making changes to Chapters 14-16 and 21). There's also a poll! PART 1: ACT 1 PART 2: ACT 2 PART 3: ACT 3
  16. Hi, I wanted to talk about challenge runs, but any of them in any FE game. I had the idea of GBA/3DS FE without using supply and trading only during the chapters (no battle prep trading), maybe even no armory in battle preps (completely skip prep), maybe no supports along that (I never really used supports in FE and never needed them so far before FE 13 and the pair up mechanic showed up, only to buff Colm/Neimi and sometimes Eirika, most of the time I didn't even click "support"). I think a run with the weakest available (repairable/buyable) weapons would be funny depending on the game (well that's basically how I play FE8 most of the time ^^ with iron, fire, light and flux except for endgame bosses with high def/res and hp who hit like a crashing plane in your face with 120-150 accuracy ouch). Swapping roles (physical units with magic and magical weapons, magical unit with physical weapons). No mobility (playing with 4 movement on everyone like you have an army of knights). No 1-2 range weapon (or use it like you use a 1 range or 2 range, no javelin/throwing axe ennemy phase army). Swords/Bows/Magic only run (Laguz/shapeshifters only run with only the necessary non shapeshifter stuff like Ike to defeat Burger King's terrible plan to raise obesity in the whole world, and you play some Amazonian tribe resisting the empire of Burger King and its' fat church leaders wth their panther transformation XD). Only the less accurate weapons run. Devil axe run (might need to hack an unbreakable devil axe though). This would be a hardcore Nuzlock challenge. Only poison weapons. Only effective weapons. Only the lowest level units available, maintain an average level (lol you can't even promote then). Only lowest speed/luck/strength/def/res/mag/hp...units. (funny to see a team of Arthur-like units get (nuz)locked out of the PT by a random crit: "Hi Knoll how's it goin'?" "Got crit killed by the first ennemy I fought, I should have instantly promoted to summoner and spam summons till I hit 20..." "Sad story bro, see you in the next PMU since no one plays you without farming"). Your ideas?
  17. The sacred stones is going to be the first FE game I play, (Not counting Heroes, but I don't think it counts...) and I know there is a point where I have to choose between going with Ephraim or Eirika. Any suggestions for route choice? (I am playing normal mode.) So far, I have only almost killed one of my units, (Neimi) because I kept on attacking walls instead of bandits. She only survived via save-states, so... My skill level isn't that high. I have also been avoiding using Seth, mostly because I heard that this game is easy and Seth is essentially able to solo the game while updating his instagram feed.
  18. I am about to complete chapter 5. (I say about to because I was attacking the boss when my console committed die.) My console is fixed now, and I know there's some side-chapter thing called 5x. Is there some kind of item I have to acquire, or any other things that are necessary to unlock 5x? I'm not really sure. Again, I am a first time player, so if it's not a good idea for a first time player to try to do 5x, I probably shouldn't do it. On a side note, I'm really incenced about my console dying in the middle of a chapter, mostly because It was nearly impossible to recruit Joshua. (It took me about 25 minutes to figure out how not to kill Joshua or have Joshua kill Natasha.) If I have to restart the chapter, is there any tips on how to easily recruit Joshua? Because, if not, I'm going to have to say "Josh darn it!" (Sorry.)
  19. Heya! Using FE8/FEBuilderGBA So I'm pretty sure I fixed this before, but it may have become un-fixed? Regardless, in chapter 6 I have just "Eirika" deployed at the start, and another unit rejoins at turn 7. When you open up the unit info menu and scroll through your units the new unit isn't shown up (unless you select him first, then he disappears when you scroll), and if you move "Eirika" first it skips to end phase without letting you use the other unit. It's kind of a pre-existing problem that I've been able to avoid until now. I've only been able to have player unit reinforcements if they were joining in that chapter, not units already on the roster, or I would find similar issues. Would love to be able to understand why these issues occur and how to fix them in the future, thank you for your time!
  20. Heya, it's my first post in the forums so apologies if I do anything wrong. Basically I would like to get around the issue of the party change from Eirika to Ephraim (in chapter 5x), in that the supply convoy and money are both separate. I have a handful of weapon drops etc, and would like for them to not be stuck in an inaccessible convoy for a while should the players inventory get full. I tried to find this amongst the forums but to no avail. While I'm on the topic, I haven't gotten further than 5x yet, but can I assume there are some common difficulties in the party split later on (when you choose Eirika/Ephraim route) or is it quite simple? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time ~
  21. Tierlists can be a really controversial thing, but I just felt like sharing my opinion on this game's ranking and discussing it. I'll be assuming that Seth is not being (ab)used and grinding is not allowed. Tier Explanations: The names inside the () indicates the Road Taken by the player. The Units are ranked within the seperate tiers... kind of. Lord Tier: Eirika (Eirika) Ephraim (Ephraim) Seth Tier: Seth S-Tier: Franz Vanessa Tethys Saleh (Eirika) A-Tier: Arthur Moulder Gerik Cormag (Ephraim) Tana Kyle Saleh (Ephraim) Forde B-Tier: Garcia Innes (Eirika) Ephraim (Eirika) Duessel (Ephraim) Lute Cormag (Eirika) C-Tier: Eirika (Ephraim) Innes (Ephraim) Joshua Natasha Gillaim Colm Duessel (Eirika) DozlaMyrrh Ross D-Tier: Knoll L'Arachell Rennac Neimi E-Tier: Ewan Marisa Amelia Reasoning:
  22. Hello, hope your day is going okay. I don't know how to start this other than to explain who I am before proposing this idea, so I don't look like a complete idiot. So hi! I'm KingNecro, a veteran fire emblem player. I've been on these forums since about 2015, but I don't exactly post much. I just read other peoples comments and go off of that. But I've been recording videos, playing rom hacks, and trying to make some of my own ever since then. Recently I had my old computer fixed, and I went through my storage and found some old fire emblem files that used to play. From this, I went to my new computer and started diving back deep into the fan-made games, and even playing through Fe6, 7, and 8. I recently finished playing through The Last Promise, and after suffering through the cringy edgelord that is Kelik, I realized that I wanted to make another fully fleshed out game. I don't know about the rest of the community, but I love playing through other people's rom hacks, because it shows off their own ideas, how they can create their own world and gives you a story to just dive deep into. Then I realized that I am literally shit at art and music. Not to mention, I have no idea how to code complex things into the game like voice acting. MarkyJoe's video of FeBuilderGBA taught me a lot about event editing, but that's about it. Then I also realized that there are a lot of really talented people in the community that could really contribute, and if we all worked together, we could make one cool motherf*cking hack. I know what you're thinking. I seem like I'm new because I haven't posted on these forums in god knows how long, and it seems stupid to just pop up out of no where and suggest that random people come together and make a hack. I've realized that. But hell I want it, and I'm sure a lot of other people do too. So why not? So if you're still reading this and haven't clicked off/wrote a comment telling me how much of an idiot I am, hear me out. For a fully fleshed out hack we need: 3 event editors 3 composers for music 2 Map designers 2 portrait designers 2 animation designers 1 Weapon and class designer 2 storyboard writers 1 Support convo writer 1 Title screen artist 1 Skill designer/coordinator Voice actors (The Last promise did it, we can do it better) As many test players as possible I think that if this all comes together, we should make this an Fe8 hack with skills and new animations and things of the sort. I have some ideas for a story that haven't been built up yet, but I don't want it to be just my ideas. That's the fun of making a hack like this, we can put everyone's ideas in it Also, if the hack goes well enough, I'm willing to compensate for the people who really put a lot of work into it. Let me know what you think, give me your feedback, let me know if I forgot anything. Thanks!
  23. Hello everyone! After having lots and lots of fun playing circleseverywhere's self-randomizing FE8, I decided to finally make this run. The rules are simple : 1- Let's have fun - The run must be played on hard mode, with the default settings for a randomization. 2- Time loop rule : no man down - If a unit dies, the run is reset. The seed will be named after the dead unit. 3 - No cheating - If I'm stuck against the Demon King because I have no legendary weapons, that's life. I have to redo the whole run in order to get a chance to get a legendary weapon. However, this case should be extremely rare and if I ever reach the Demon King, I should have a weapon at my disposal. 4 - Playing for fun - I'll try to turtle as less as I could in order to make the run entertaining. That means for example that I shouldn't grind bards/dancers just to make it easier for me. Everything is fair game as long as it's efficient. With that in mind, let's begin! Prologue and Chapter 1 I have no clue if I'll ever be able to finish this, but expect a wild ride.
  24. Seriously, the game was far too easy, and there are unanswered questions in the game, I think this game needs a remake, and a new story added into it.
  25. Hello everyone, so I've recently been working on a remake of fe6. Basically fe6 ported to fe8. I'd like to think your opinion about it. This project will include; -Better text -QoF patch (even though I'd love to have more mechanics like a strength and magic split) -Display all weapons patch -more weapons (like Noble Rapier etc.) -Blinking frames for the portraits and recoloured and lastly! -nothing here have some screenshots
