Recently, I’ve been trying to get into FE Rom Hacking. So I looked up some tutorials, downloaded NUPS and Nightmare, and was ready to start messing around and learning the ropes, but after I added the No Tutorial Patch to my FE7 ROM, the game refused to run. So I thought, “Well, okay. That’s fine. Tutorial doesn’t matter anyway.” So, then I tried to begin messing around with Nightmare, but then once I tried to use the FE7 Character and Class editor, a message popped up saying that the “ROM is not compatible with the module”, or something along those lines. What am I doing wrong? Am I just being retarded? (By the way, I did delete the the ROM that had the No Tutorial patch, and got a fresh ROM for Nightmare).
Hi Milanor here, I'm new to the rom hacking community and I'm trying to figure out how to create a completely new ups patch file from a clean rom and an hex editor. My first mini project would be to create an easy mode of fe6, from the original vanilla version of the game. I have the original fresh copy of FE6, and I plan to use the nightmare editor to modify all the character's bases and growths (essentially buff them), and then creating a patch on that. The program that I'm using is NUPS which should create ups files, however, when I go to create a patch, it asks for the original file, edited file, and then the New UPS file. I'm confused about what it means since I've already have a fresh copy. Does this mean that I would first have two fresh copies of FE6 (respectively A and B where B is the edited file), then edit the B file with nightmare, then after making the changes to B, create a patch from both files A and B? Then the next issue I have is that since the game is only released in Japan and no English version of the game exists (except for fan translation patches), I have to find a way to get the translate the text and menu items. I'm thinking of either two choices: A) Use an old translation patch that already exists from 2006 or whenever (I will make sure to have permission from them as well as credit them), then apply it to my newly created patch? In other words, I don't know if I can tack on a existing patch to another existing patch together? Or what about applying two different patches to the same rom? (One is a translation patch and the other one is the modified base/growth rates patch.) B) Rewrite the entire game script (which includes the menu items, item descriptions, character texts, and all of that) which is A LOT of work for just a mini project. Let me know how I should go about doing these things and I hope this isn't too much for someone who is still a newbie in the world of rom hacking. I also hope I did not sound too confusing as my wording can be awkward at times. -Milanor
Sort of a follow-up to my last post here. Currently learning how to use the MAKEHACK command to apply changes to ROMS. I downloaded the buildfile demo and am currently trying to apply the changes made to it to a clean ROM. Originally, I was having trouble because thee .ups file needed to patch the game wasn't appearing, but after some experimentation, I discovered that it was simply a case of "wait around for the program to actually make the file before closing it." But now I've encountered a different problem. When I use NUPS to apply the patch to the hacked copy of the ROM, it says that the patch has been applied. Yet when I open the ROM up to test it out, none of the changes have been applied at all. I have tried this a few times and I cannot get any of the changes to work. Does anyone have any clue as to what's going on?
