I remember seeing a patch for one of the GBA games that changed UI things, maybe even added the enemy attack range overlay from later games, to make it more convenient to play if you've got used to the modern games. Am I just imagining things, or does such a thing exist?
In my last casual playthrough of FE7, I couldn't stand the dialogue font. Far too tall for how thin it is. With my experience messing around with roms over the years, I decided I could fix it myself. This is a personal QOL hack I made for myself, but I figured sharing it with others would be a great service. I started off by importing Sacred Stones' font. Unfortunately, I then discovered what a typographical nightmare that font is. Irregular x-heights make reading very uncomfortable, especially as a fast reader. So I made several edits to make it more palatable. Dialogue font x-heights have been normalized. The lowercase "y" is less thin. Menu fonts are also slightly modified and have had x-heights normalized. The lowercase "t" is taller. As I created it for my casual playthrough, I was able to playtest it from start to finish (Lyn Normal -> Eliwood Normal) with no issues. Here are some screenshots: FE7 Font Revamp v1.0.ips (Apply to a US FE7 ROM) Of course, I wasn't done there: there were still two other Fire Emblem games I've yet to play that feature the same crappy fonts. Well, I'm glad to announce that I have font patches available for both Sacred Stones and Binding Blade! I haven't had the chance to test either of these to a great extent, so let me know if you come across any problems. FE8 Font Revamp v1.0.ips (Apply to a US FE8 ROM) FE6 Font Revamp + Text Crawls v1.0.xdelta (Apply to Gringe's FE6 Translation v1.0) The following patch works on both the current fantranslation and the old one. It's missing text crawls, but it is functional. FE6 Font Revamp v1.0.ips (Apply to any English-patched FE6 ROM) Because this hack only modifies font graphics, almost all romhacks should be compatible! If you would like to use these font modifications in your own romhacks, feel free to do so! Credit is highly appreciated, but not necessary. Explicit permission is not needed, but I'd love to hear if you're planning on using these. I hope you are able to get as much out of these as I have!
Hi everybody, you know this situation: An enemy Reinhardt is sitting comfortably in the other corner of the map and you wonder if your bait will survive his attack on enemy phase. Wouldn't it be great if you could drag the enemy unit on yours, to check how much damage would be dealt on enemy phase? Of course the result would depend on the tile from which the enemy would attack. If it is a defense tile or in range of a spur for example. Alternatively they could show the damage taken on EP if you drag your own unit over a tile in enemy range. What do you think of the idea? Would it be likely to be implemented if suggested to IS?
