  1. This is a question I've always had, and I just don't get it. Why does everyone hate Matthis in particular so much? He's just a subpar unit, other subpar units like Macellan, Dolph, and the entirety of the Wolfguard are also bad units and are much more difficult to recruit/keep alive in their join maps, yet they aren't hated nearly as much. Even in the games where he's not that bad in, people still shit on him. In FE1 he's an earlygame mount that can use Silver Lances at base. In FE3 it's the same deal, hell I would go as far and say that he's better than Cecil, Roderick, Luke, and Ryan. In FE11 he's not great, and is one of the games I would say he's legit bad in because he can no longer use silvers at base and reclassing removes his niche as a mount, but even then he starts with a D rank in lances, which is one rank away from using the most broken weapon in the game, and can already use javelins at base, which is better than what Cain can do. Though, there's not much reason to use him over Abel, Vyland, Frey, or Roshea. In FE12, like FE11 he can no longer use silvers and reclassing removes his niche. In FE12 he's just Roderick with better base stats and has growths that are more defensively oriented. Discounting growths, I'd say that Matthis is one of more mid-tier units in the game. A bad unit that joins early is better than a bad unit that joins later. Recruiting him isn't even hard because you have to go around the mountain anyway to get Bord and Julian. For his personality, he doesn't have too much of a character just like 90% of the cast. Though, the few lines he does get give him a bit of a personality which is more than I can say about Cain, Abel, Macellan , or Dolph. From what I can put together from his recruitment and his dialogue with Marth in SD, he's a pretty calm and cowardly person. He initially fights for Michalis because Lena refused to marry Michalis and naturally Michalis forces her brother to fight for his army while threatening his life because of his dislike for him. After finding out that Lena was safe and part of Marth's army, he joins Marth's army as well. His recruitment convo with Julian in FE12 is a little bit more interesting. You can see how reluctant Matthis is to have Julian be the lover of his sister and see how he doesn't trust him. From his recruitment you can tell that he is mostly the overprotective older brother type, which is understandable, considering the past Julian has as a thief and even being so competent as a thief that he's the commander of Rickard. As an older brother of a younger sister myself, I would want my sister to be safe and not to date just anyone, so I can understand Matthis's worries. Near the end of their convo Julian manipulates(?) Matthis and by telling him that Lena and he wouldn't work out and it works and calms Matthis down and they become somewhat of friends. I find Matthis's supports with Kris kind of amusing, in his C support he's mostly worried about his sister and afraid of all the things that the dark priests can be doing to her. In his B support with Kris, he decides that he doesn't want to wallow in worry for his sister and wants to rescue her himself, so he asks Kris to help him train. When I initially read this it was pretty nice to see Matthis go through some development and how he wanted to be stronger. In his A support, it reveals that he just gives up his training and entrusts his sister to Kris (because Kris is a Mary Sue). At first, I was pretty disappointed that Matthis just gives up, but then I found it kinda funny. It's in character for Matthis, he cares deeply about his sister and wants the best for her, but he is too cowardly to be able to protect her. It would be boring if he was just a typical "weak person but wants to get stronger" type of character since Julian and many other characters have that same motive, this way he's mostly still a comic relief type of character, though he's still a static character which isn't necessarily a bad thing. He's not really a major character, he's mostly a side character so being a static character makes sense and works in Matthis's case. Something I wish though is that his supports were with Julian and not Kris, as it would work better and further develop the relationship being Matthis and Julian. Something I like about Matthis is that he's not really a brave courageous knight, nor is he a weak person who wants to be strong. He's just a regular ass dude who doesn't like fighting and adores the peaceful and tranquil life. His cowardice and seemingly denseness are flaws on his part, but they also make him seem more human. When a character doesn't have any flaws they become a Mary Sue. I love characters with flaws, and Matthis, in general, is just one huge flaw, which is something I like. I can see why people would dislike a character like Matthis (seeing how Makalov is similar to him and also gets a lot of hate), but I don't understand why he seems to have so much hate aimed towards him than any Archanea character, I just don't get it.
  2. I've been thinking about getting into Fallout 1 and 2 again, as it's been a while since I've last tried them out, and I never got very far in either game. I started playing Fallout 1 yesterday, and I have a few questions for both games: - Are there any advantages to playing with a balanced character, or is it better to run a specialized one? - Are there any "You must have this skill/perk/whatever or else you may as well be doing a challenge run" kind of deals? I know that "Gifted" is called this, but I'm curious if there are any others. - Conversely, are there any skills and perks I should avoid? - How important is charisma and speech in these games? I know that several other games oversell how much you can talk your way out, and I'm curious if Fallout falls into that category, or if those skills actually do something in these games. - How are the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats increased? Do you get another stat every few levels, or are certain events/items the only way to increase them? - Trying to remain spoiler-free, what is the best course of action to obtain the water chip in the first game? - How much ammo do you get for weapons? Is it wise to only use them when you need to, or is it plentiful and you can afford to be a little loose with firearms? - Aside from shooting me in the back (although I quickly found out tricks to avoid that), are there any real advantages to having a partner? - Are there any ways to cheese the final fight in the tutorial area in Fallout 2? The rest of the level is okay, but I remember passing the final test through sheer luck the last time I played, and I'd rather not repeat that. Any general tips and tricks would be much appreciated.
  3. I'm hoping to start making a project soon. I've been trying to find files of the GBA sprites to no avail. If anyone could help me that would be amazing. Thank you.
  4. okay, its been forever since ive been here and this is making me tear my hair out. okay, here is my problem: FEditor adv isnt allowing me to create the class animation. What I have done: 1. checked my script over with about 4 tutorials and reread my script format 200 times over and matched theirs letter for letter 2. checked my frames for differing colors. i have less than 16 on all of them and they match exact 3. yes there's two spaces before the p- 4. everything is in .png format 5. all colors are shared from the same 15 color pool, but not every frame uses them all 6. i've tried renaming, but that doesn't make a difference 7. it accepts the standing frame, but nothing else. ive switched the attk frame with the standing to see if it was that. same result as before. (didnt accept the standing frame that was changed to attack1) 8. all pics and docs are in the same file I really need help or I'm gonna lose it
  5. Can I purchase one physical cartridge copy of Fire Emblem Fates Birthright or Conquest pre-owned in some manner, through Amazon for example and still get the discount for the two other paths? On Nintendo's fire emblem fates website it says "Buy the first game for US$39.99MSRP/CA$49.99MSRP, then purchase and download the other paths for just US$19.99MSRP/CA$24.99MSRP. MSRP = Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, Actual Price May Vary" How does the discount work, would it come with a discount code when you buy the game brand new, or is it something that works with all Fire Emblem Fates Cartridges where once you purchase one version you then can purchase the other two paths for $19.99 no matter what. Is the discount for the two other paths locked to brand new retail purchased games? How about digital purchases? I'm trying to get all 3 versions, Conquest, Birthright and Revelations as cheap as possible on one cartridge without spending upwards of $100-$300 on the special edition, or purchase it new still pay $80 for an 2 year old title to save money and SD card space. This question didn't seem redundant since I can't find it on reddit/google, and Nintendo Customer Service is closed/busy due to it being Cyber Monday. The website isn't too specific as to how the discount actually works so I came here. Be as specific with your response as possible please.
  6. I've been thinking about starting my own fan project for a while, but even though I've taking notes on things like stats, growths and classes, I'm not really sure what I'd need to officially start. This is mainly an issue due to the fact that I'm considering asking for the help of people online because of my own lack of expirience in all of this, but I don't want to ask for them to put their efforts in a project that lacks almost everything (I don't even know if it'd be appropiate to do it when knowing these things so you know). I don't even know if asking this is appropiate, for that matter. There's a lot of things I don't know apparently.

    FE8 Modding

    Hi, I'm new to forums so I hope this is in the right spot and stuff. Anyway, I'm just getting into FE8 modding and specifically the Battle Palette modding. I want to change the way a necromancer looks in battle and his sprite and all that. I've checked around google and I couldn't find anything so I figured that I could post a topic somewhere. Can anyone direct me to a Battle Palette Reference Nightmare Module that contains a battle palette for a necromancer? or does that not exist. Thanks :D
  8. What on your thoughts on the Possessed/Corrupted villain type in Fire Emblem games?
  9. Exactly what the title says, who are your favorite characters and why? They can be from any game in the series and there can be multiple. I'd ask for least favorites but I don't want this to turn into a predictable Fateswakening hate circle.
  10. I haven't played Genealogy of the Holy war yet so I know next to nothing about the story save for the one plot point that keeps getting spoiled by dumb memes, but I've heard from the FE Wiki that the Manga for Genealogy of the Holy War expands on the plot, characters and world so I thought I'd ask those of you who've played FE4 if a potential remake game should adapt that manga or if you'd be satisfied with an expansion of the game itself. Feel free to let me know if there's already been an ask like this.
  11. Getting right to the point, I know that Sacred Stones is the easiest, or at least among the easiest, Fire Emblem game(s) to date. I also know that it's tutorial is locked on the easiest difficulty, so I have two questions I want to ask: Is there any information in the tutorial of Sacred Stones that can't be figured out by playing the other entries? I.E. Is there anything unique to this game that isn't in the other Fire Emblem games that I should know about ahead of time? For reference, I've beaten Awakening on Normal!Classic and Hard!Casual, as well as Shadows of Valentia on Hard!Classic, and I've also started, but haven't finished, the other two GBA Fire Emblem games. Is the Hard difficulty of Sacred Stones a fine place to start, especially playing blind, or would it be a better idea to do a play--through of the game on Normal difficulty first? Thank you ahead of time for your answers.
  12. So I was working on a rom where I added new classes from fe7 into fe8. I had started with Eliwood and his promotion to knight lord. I tried booting up the rom and it wouldn't me use any battle animations in game. I tried fixing the problem. but now the rom softlocks if I move any character. Could anyone tell me how to fix this? Link to the patch for rom:https://www.dropbox.com/s/c0lzmqs1lxb10gf/FE 8 Rom.ups?dl=0 The only thing I could think of is a patch broke the rom, but I'm not sure.
  13. I started Binding Blade today, and I just beat chapter 3. I also beat Lyn's story in Blazing Sword yesterday, and I plan on playing Sacred Stones sometime in the future. Anyway, I have a few questions about how the support system in the GBA games works. By the way, I've already had a support between Roy and Wolt, as well as Wade and Lott, and I know that there is a 5-support limit, so I have some experience with the system, even if it is limited. So without further ado: At what point in the game does the support system become available in Blazing Sword and Sacred Stones? Are any support points gained in Lyn's story? Are support points gained at the beginning or end of the player phase? Do actions such as healing add any points, or are they gained solely by standing next to someone? I know that there is a limit to the amount of points that can be gained in a chapter, but are there any limits to the amount of supports that can be had in one? If, say, a character reaches an A-support with someone, but then the other person dies, will they be able to reach another A-support, or will the dead person count towards the 5-support limit? I also have three questions about Binding Blade specifically, not related to supports:

  16. Hi! I've known about Fire Emblem for 3 years now (after an older friend introduced me to Fire Emblem YTPs) but the only taste I've gotten of it is from Smash, Nintendo Badge Arcade, and FE:H. So starting my questions: What's a "Nintendo Device" FE game that I should play? (So not phone or PC) Is there an app to browse this website on mobile? The webpage is kind of slow and weird to navigate. Where can I find guides on certain FE games? Are there specific rules pertaining to userscripts or extensions to modify the site appearance? On a scale of 1-10 how strict is FftF? What's the art style of FE:H/Magikarp Jump called? Are there forum layouts or signatures? If so, why or why not? From what I've seen so far this forum is very clean and friendly and I'm excited to learn more about Fire Emblem.
  17. In this thread your general knowledge is tested with relevant and also trivial questions. Each day I ask you four questions, I'll give the answer one day later. How to answer? Select your answer in the poll. It's annonymous so one can be blamed. The purpose of this thread is the fun factor and maybe to learn the one or other thing. Of course you can submit questions too by sending me a PM. Each question shall have four answer possibilites to make it similar to quiz shows like Who wants to be a Millionair. Day 1 Question 1: How is the phenomenon called when the moon sets between sun and earth? a: new moon b: full moon c: solar eclipse d: lunar eclipse Question 2: The Dutchman Max Verstappen is the youngest... a: student on Oxford University b: winner of a Formula 1 race c: Noble Peace Price Winner d: daddy on earth Question 3: The distance of the mainland of which countries amounts less than 100 km? a: Iceland + North Pole b: Argentina + South Pole c: USA + Russia d: Japan + North Corea Question 4: The current Prime Minister of the UK is... a: March b: April c: May d: June
  18. Everyday I see begginer hackers coming up here posting a "dumb" question That could easily be solved, so this is why I decided to create this topic. What to do before you post here? 1: See if you can't solve the problem yourself. Sometimes, the rom can glitch out because you simply forgot an hex edit somewhere. so, be sure to double check everytime if something doesn't work. 2: See if another question thread has the same question answered. You can try to search for the question you are asking to see if someone hasnt already solved your problem. 3: Read the doc. This is the most important part, as your problem may already be documented and fixes may have already been made. common places to look for these are feuniverse.us and The resources section of this forum.
  19. I have decided to use the program Nightmare recently on Fire Emblem:Blazing Sword to create a new, unique experience for me within the game. However, I have a few questions regarding it and I am having some problems with the program that I would like to get resolved asap. 1.Every time I edit the map music, after an animation is started, the music is cut out and won't come back until the next phase. How do I fix this? 2.I was using a randomized rom of FE7 because I saw my base class for Lowen was archer and I wanted to make him a mercenary. If I want to do this, do I have to use a regular rom for FE7 without messing with it or there another way? 3.How do I increase the enemy growth rate's of characters without using the Randomizer and how do I activate Hard Mode Bonuses on Eliwood Hard Mode? Thank you for taking your time for reading this and helping me out with these Nightmare problems. Its just that this is quite a "nightmare" for me! lol
  20. I search answers for these questions: - Ways to unlock the unobtainable holy weapons or holy blood - + How to aqurie/hack and use siege tomes and dark magic Thanks for answering
  21. So I decided to begin my first playthrough through FE , I heard that some legendary weapons are enemy locked, and also that they require major holy blood, that none of my characters will have in the game, so I ask for: - Tips - Ways to unlock the unobtainable holy weapons or holy blood - And also the so called tips for pairings, to unlock other legendary weapons - + How to aqurie/hack and use siege tomes and dark magic
  22. How do I create yes/no questions like the one in FE7 where you can choose whether or not to hire Farina in Hector's story?
  23. Hello! So, I've been on again off again messing around with learning how to hack fe7 for a while now. Recently though, I decided that for my first actual project, I'd really like to try and move on to fe8 because it's what all the cool kids are doing, and it's my favorite in the series. Only issue is now I have to figure out what I can and can't keep doing from what I've been learning. I know that the Ultimate Guide goes over both, but given how many people are starting to hack fe8 all of a sudden, I figured it was worth asking again. 1. Can mugs and character battle animations formatted for fe7 be used in fe8 without having to edit them? 2. Are there any changes that I have to make to fe7 events to make them work in fe8? Specifically, I use Eventiel ( http://tebrigade.b1.jcink.com/index.php?act=Pages&pid=2 ) for the base of my events, and add in the smaller details afterwards. I included the event data for an (unfinished) early chapter I was making in the spoiler at the bottom of the post. If there's anything major that needs changing for fe8, could you point it out to me? 3. Random extra question, is it possible to give a "use" effect to a weapon (similar to the Fruit Knife in fates)? Sorry for all the newbie questions, I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to this sort of thing.
  24. Hi, guys! After more or less successfully clearing Birthright on Hard Mode, I am attempting to conquer Conquest (get it?) on Hard next. I made it past Chapter 10 with my low-man strategy and it worked semi-well with my current strategy setup. I wanted to ask you guys what you think of my idea and how I could improve/change it. The thing I'm doing is: I always have my units paired up to block enemy Dual Strikes and I will leave one of the two units as pair-up fodder for the other, i.e. they won't get any EXP past Dual Guards. I may Master Seal them to give the lead unit better bonuses. Here are the pairings I'm currently planning to go with. Lead unit will be named first. +Str/-Lck Avatar + Great Lord!Selena (both will be trained) Archer!Mozu + Lodestar!Silas Camilla + Keaton (currently Beruka) Leo + Felicia Witch!Elise + Odin Xander + Charlotte I do plan on getting some of the kids and training them up. Kana and Velouria come to mind, but I'm not sure yet. The units mentioned above will do most of the fighting. The rest of the team will either consist of children or filler units, which will be benched later on (like Effie and Arthur or Niles for example). Anyway, for those of you who already cleared Conquest: Is this approach favorable? Or will I hit Rock Bottom soon enough and if so, how could I prevent it from happening? Thank you guys in advance! :D
  25. I feel a topic like this is needed. Feel free to ask any questions you have regarding the rules (or rulings) of FE Cipher here and people will answer them. We just ask you to read this before asking any questions: http://serenesforest.net/wiki/index.php/Comprehensive_Rules_of_FE_Cipher If you feel your question has still not been answered, then go ahead and ask it here.
