  1. 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?
  2. Like several other newbies, I've lurked here on and off over the years. My first Fire Emblem game was Shadow Dragon (the Nintendo DS remake.) I played Awakening a few years later and enjoyed it much more, then played Fates a few years after that and loved it even more. I'd like to play Shadows of Valentia if I can find it without too much effort (is it me or are FE games really difficult to find after the first year or so they come out?) and I find the time to play it. If I really get around to it, I may play some of the earlier games, too. As for anything non-Fire Emblem related, I'm a fantasy novelist and illustrator who works full-time as a graphic designer and has a (considerably successful) side job as an illustrator. I've finished several novels, I have tables at comic conventions, and I am getting involved in the production of a visual novel. Although that last bit about the visual novel actually DOES relate to Fire Emblem...
  3. i download a fe8 patch and the maker has updated it so i was wondering how i could update my game without losing my save data
  4. Hiya all! I'm pretty new to the hacking community, however I am currently using FE Builder to edit FE8, and have a couple questions I am hoping some more experienced people can answer 😁 1. How would I change a palette for a boss only? I know how to change enemy palettes, etc. but i can't figure out how to do it for individual enemies. 2. I am getting an issue where random enemies suddenly do 250+ damage, and I can't figure out why. It's totally possible I screwed something up, but any guidance would be helpful. 3. I am having an issue with getting the map loaded before characters appear, conversation text, etc. I want the map to appear, then units come on screen but I am having trouble. Any advice would be much, much appreciated! 😊
  5. Hello! I hope I am posting this in the right place, if not I apologize! So for anyone who is a pro in the rom hacking scene, I have a question as I have an ambitious idea for a rom hack but before I get my hopes up and begin learning the ins and outs, I want to know the limitations of what I can and can't do. Here is the run down of what I'm thinking: - Something I want to do in a FE8 Rom hack is make a extremely story heavy game. Maps will be there but think "Graphic Novel"-esque. Lots of dialogue and scene changing. - Use FE8's map roam feature where you can walk around the map. Maybe add towns if possible. (Think FE Gaiden and Echoes) - Some characters are based off of typical FE stuff (Got a dude who is a pegasus knight, got my archer, got my Lord, ect) but some don't use conventional weapons in FE with one character using Tonfas. Could I make a new weapon type? -Less of a limitation and more of a question of how the leveling formula should go or if I could inflate the numbers if need be. The story would be long which ma require high levels and stats so I am curious of how that would work. I'm sure there is more but these are the main questions off the top of my head. As a disclaimer, I realize this would be a lot of work, especially for one person and I have looked up a few reddit threads on the topic so I know what I'm thinking about isn't something that can be done in a week. But I am just curious of what is and is not possible. I'm not sure if these questions have been answered, I assume not since what I'm asking is very specific but I'd like to know the limits and what's doable before I start looking up tutorials and the like. I really want to make my story into a game and I've tried RPG maker with no success so I'm hoping a rom hack can help.
  6. Now that I have a new found love for Fire emblem I decided to join the site. The forest is very different from other sites, but its a lot of fun. Anyway, I cant wait to show off some projects I have working out in my head. All will be seen, in time.
  7. Hi guys I'm Sam I'm newish here, I'm a poet, writer and composer, I'm 17, and this is my favorite gaming franchise! I've also got kind of bad social aniety and stuff so I hope i don't get trolled!
  8. Hello! I am new to Serenes Forest, however I have been lurking here and there throughout the years. Finally decided to make an account! On to the introduction...I’m Rani! Pleasure to meet you! My introduction to Fire Emblem was through Smash Bros. Melee back in 2015. I was playing it again for nostalgias sake and was curious as to what series Roy was from since I always played as him since I was a kid. Few hours later I had downloaded a GBA emulator and was playing FE6. I immediately fell in love. Unfortunately my tiny netbook at the time was a hunk of crap. It stopped working so I haven’t beaten that game to this day. I definitely plan on it down the road! After that I was introduced to Awakening through a friend. I ate that game up. Looking for more Fire Emblems to play, I then played FE7. Loved it. Beat that and started FE9. Adored it (Although still trying to transfer my file over from another computer, only 3 chapters left!). Then I played Fates for a good while. After Fates a friend let me borrow his copy of FE8. Loved that too. Started playing Echoes when it came out because I had been considering Gaiden in the past. My 3ds broke so I haven’t beaten it but it was fun for the time I played. These are all the FE's I've played myself but I have watched a few lets plays of the ones I haven't here and there. TLDR; I’ve played FE6, FE7, FE8, FE9, FE13, FE14, and FE15. I am very interested in playing older FE games such as FE4 and so on. I just haven’t gotten around to them yet because I have so many games on my plate atm. Outside of Fire Emblem, I enjoy: JRPGs/RPGs, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Splatoon, My Hero Academia, One Piece, Fantasy, etc. I like quite a few things but I’m too lazy to write the rest down haha. A bit off topic but I’ve been interested in FE fan hacks/games for a few years now and I’m planning to make a short little hack for a friend that’s about 7 chapters long. I’ve had the idea in my head on and off for awhile but I’m now finalizing things. Planning on using FEXP so I’m trying to learn my way around that engine. Off topic again but, I was watching someone stream a fan hack that had a player unit battle sprite with a black pegasus that had its wings folded. Does anyone know what its from? I didn't catch the title of the game at the time. Anyhoo, I’ve rambled for quite a bit now… Looking forward to meeting all sorts of people! :D
  9. Epoch5

    Hello World

    Greetings, fellow Fire Emblem fans and enthusiasts! As you can see, my username is Epoch5, but on other platforms (i.e. Discord) I go by ShadeWarlock0. My first Fire Emblem game was Blazing Sword, but it took until Fates released to actually get me into the series. I ended up disliking fates, but I returned to the GBA era and loved those games, so here I am! I'm a fan of many RPG and jRPG series aside from Fire Emblem, including but not limited to Pokemon, Xenoblade Chronicles, Chrono Trigger, Bravely Default, Final Fantasy (specifically, I've played 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, and 15), Octopath Traveler, Mother 2 + 3, and Mario + Luigi, as well as some other game series like Kirby and Super Smash Bros. Looking forward to becoming an active participant here!
  10. Hey everyone, I'm Milanor, or Mila, whichever you want to refer to me as. Anyways, here is some background info about me. I'm a graduate student studying software engineering and I've first been introduced to the Fire Emblem series over a decade ago, back when Sacred Stones first came out. One of my friends told me about it and after seeing him play it, I got interested in learning how to play an RTS game or tactical strategy game of the kind. On my first time, I was really bad at the series and didn't really understand strategy or grasped the concept itself. I remember sending Seth, the main pre-promo unit just slaughtering all the enemies including the boss and not training my lords (Eirika and Ephraim) at all. I couldn't finish the run at all, and it wasn't until I've played Fire Emblem - Blazing Sword that I've learned how to properly play an RTS. Over the years, I've watched LPers, tried strategies all around, as well hints and tips from all over the Internet and became proficient at the Fire Emblem series. I consider myself a highly experienced player of the Fire Emblem series, but not somewhere around the expert level (I tend to avoid hard mode mainly because it's quite tedious and of course, difficult.) - in other words, I'm more of a casual player. Anyways, I found out about Serenes Forest many years ago (probably as far back as 2010), but never really thought about joining until now. I've played through many fire emblem games, mainly the GBA series and Geneology of the Holy War (FE4). My favorite FE game based on the ones I've played is Sacred Stones, mainly because of the usefulness of almost all the characters, the difficulty is friendly to newcomers (at least in Normal Mode), has a overworld map (really like that), has places to grind (newbie friendly) such as the Tower and Ruins, and finally, lots of usability between character classes (each character can choose to promote to either one of two classes), pairings, and gives you a lot of leeway in the late game. As of now, apart from school and IRL stuff, I'm interested in getting my foot in the door towards fire emblem rom hacking, starting from the most basic level. I've played Blazer's FE rom hack "The Last Promise" and it was very enjoyable indeed. After playing through his rom hack, and seeing the additional part of the Fire Emblem community here, I'm inspired to create an easier mode for FE6, which would be me gateway into the FE rom hacking world. Feel free to ask me anything else you want to know about me. -Milanor
  11. I have no idea what's going on and why.
  12. I have absolutely no idea how to use this thing. I'm making a hack in which almost everything and everyone uses magic so I wanted to add some magic items with low durability and accuracy bit high power. Here's an example: Dandelion Uses:5 Mt:8 Hit%:65 Weight:1 Critical%:5 Range:1 Animation:Excalibur Weapon Rank:E But...I literally don't know what does what in this module, if someone can guide me step-by-step to turning the Emblem Sword into this thing I'll gladly listen to them. UPDATE: Thank you everyone for helping me out, with some experimenting and reading I managed to make the Dandelion work properly. Now how do I tag this as answered?
  13. even in real life... Hello everyone, I was lurking weeks ago this website, so I decided recently to sign up If there is a grammatical error, is mostly because English is not my first language.

  14. so, I'v recently begun making hacks, it's going well so far due to all the infrastructure people have put in place to teach newbs like yours truly, anyhow this thread is to post any sprites or mugs I make and receive critique. well here goes: 1: Shaman with a turban http://imgur.com/VhfNeJg a shaman who will join us fairly early, he has the calm, content expression due to seeing into the depths of dark magic and as such he's not easily surprised anymore. he lost his left eye as a sacrifice for his personal dark magic spell (he has a personal weapon like rapier etc) self critique, I'd probably need to learn much more about shadows due to the turban not casting a shadow over his face. 2:fem shaman or troubadour that learns dark magic upon promotion. ^that shaman's apostle. http://imgur.com/6Zn2yBA ---- http://imgur.com/qUbO1XC updated version -> she will join us either early as a healer or later if she ends up a second shaman(since the guy's stats are growths are very unbalanced) a very simple splice, mainly ursula with a recolour and niime's hat thingy - extended. 3: female mercenary http://imgur.com/pMQnunA she will join early-midgame. a bit of a tomboy, she has like a wrapped scarf thing around her neck and a sleeveless blue undershirt. my most custom mug yet, I made most of the shoulderpad and spliced together stuff from 6 characters. 4:Older soldier http://imgur.com/ndGvPRa,396hCvZ#1 he will join earlygame, when the lord's lands were attacked and his forces decimated, he's found along with another surviving archer carrying out guerrilla warfare vs. the invading army, he's mainly a splice with a bit of age lines added to show that he's seen better days. he's pretty much a generic soldier given time in the spotlight. 5:Lone rampaging wyvern knight http://imgur.com/ndGvPRa,396hCvZ#0 he will join midgame, he's the eldest son of a family of wyvern knights who have been going for a long time, his family were killed by assassins for political reasons, he swore vengeance on the nation who ordered it. he's found surrounded, fighting in a blind fury in his lust for revenge on his family's killers. he's mainly gale with different armor and a nice cloth scarf to clean the blood of his lance with. 6: Seafaring swordsman from the east. http://imgur.com/slbFFaI he will join midgame, he's a swordsman that comes from a nomadic people's but unlike his tribe he feels most at home at sea, the enemy army take over the port where the ship he's on is anchored, they seize it and he joins the party to get back at them. was a saleh / lloyd splice with a little recolouring, nothing fancy. 7. Veteran archer, found along with older soldier, trying to fight back after surviving their army's massacre. http://imgur.com/nMQdnnY he's a splice of Dieck's face, Linus' hair and Puzon's body he joins earlygame, along with the soldier, I think having older characters allows for more intresting personalities, also lets them have children etc to recruit further on in the game. 8. Cocky, young adult mage prodigy, seeks out turban shaman guy due to his past accomplishments as a mage, before he lost the power to control anima. http://imgur.com/t7OrD64 I feel out of all my units this one's personality in conveyed most strongly through his expression. I feel maybe I went a bit too black / white grey with this dude and maybe I should give him more colours, im open to suggestions as always. splice of Jahn's head / chest and renault's small shoulerpadcloth thingy, along with edited brown collars over the shirt. 9. Bloodthirsty axeman, crazed and ruthless, won't ruin his story by saying how he joins (BEING REDONE). http://imgur.com/AURfaTj <- low quality, working on remaking. each part of the face is from a different sprite, same with the hair, the body is still just diek's but to be fair I felt I was already pushing it with this and I wasn't sure if it looks ok or not. 9.5 Bloodthirsty axeman v2. http://imgur.com/TnUALh8 an attempt to improve over the last version. still considering changing it again. 10. Poor wannabe armor knight bandit guy, once his village was saved a mighty armor knight of the realm, thats where his dream began... http://imgur.com/UlmNwjl and with his shoddy half broken armor is where it's gona end, the only armor knight I have planned for this game and thankfully he's not as boring as the rest, he's pretty quick and stuff but his def isn't great, which y'know makes sense since his armor is like falling apart .his face is like a mix of 5 faces, hair is lowen's, body armor is a big mix. 11. Hippie zealot nomad, he joins cus the nation that messed up MC's castle/people is against his hippie standards, http://imgur.com/d2B2fnA this guy was a splice of about 4-5 facial features, roland's body recoloured and mini head + icon thing. he's all about dat resistance, anti magic nomad on the scene. 12. The sad dude, suffering existential crisis, in anguish. lacks will and does stuff just because he's really conformist. http://imgur.com/fqesi1i he's a mix of facial features from FE8 baddies along with the base of a FE7 baddie non boss, custome'd his face so he covers his chin with the underside of his bandana rag thingy.
