TheMoniker Posted February 16, 2015 Share Posted February 16, 2015 (edited) Okay, so. You're probably wondering about the topic title. You see, this LP is SPECIAL. I won't be playing just one hack. Instead, I'll be playing six separate hacks, all made by the same person. The quality between them varies WILDLY, and some of it will be terrible in a zany fashion, or just terrible. Markyjoe1990, the creator of all the hacks, is a relatively well-known FE hack youtuber/reviewer, and he is VERY CRITICAL. LET'S FIND OUT ABOUT HIS RIGHT TO JUDGE Let's find out about his OWN dark past! I'll be playing the hacks in a very specific order. Keep in mind that I need to play them in this order, because this is the order they were made in, and they all sort of together form a VERY WEIRD "canon"(eg: If I don't play them in this order you won't understand the "in jokes"). Also, all the hacks are unfinished or abandoned to some degree. Anyways, here's the order I'll play them in: Super Hard Lyn Mode: The very first hack Markyjoe released, it's basically a reskin of Lyn mode, made to be "super hard"(note the quotes). It's terrible in every since of the word, and thus will be a great way to start things off. It's length is the whole of Lyn mode, but the chapters are short so it shouldn't take THAT long. Markyjoe made changes to Eliwood mode as well, but he never specified what they were or if they were worth seeing, so we won't be caring about them. If you need something to compare it to, it's like a really early and REALLY WEIRD Chaos Mode, except not really. Tactician's Nightmare: It's one level of pure insanity. Pure, imbalanced, terribly designed, luck-based insanity. It plays like a bad ragefest hack, and will likely only take 1 update. Markyjoe said that some people had no trouble with the level while other ended up tearing their hair out over it. I guess we'll see, won't we? Old Fire Mumblem: Marky's first full custom hack. Except not really, because all the portraits are copied. It's terrible, at many points not even in an entertaining way, and Marky admitted that the only interesting part about it is the dialogue, which is so impossibly explicit I might get an infraction for posting it in uncensored form. I'll find some way to deal with it, don't worry! It's length is about 7 chapters or so if I remember right, after which the hack kind of peters out. New Fire Mumblem(also known as Fire Mumblem: Revised Edition): Basically Fire Mumblem TAKE TWO! It's the first hack on the list with gameplay that someone MIGHT CONCEIVABLY ACTUALLY WANT TO PLAY. Believe me, that says something! Of course, markyjoe abandoned this one after even less chapters, but that's okay, because it isn't THAT great. Corruption of Roy: I didn't initially PLAN on playing this, but my viewers convinced me otherwise. I regretted listening to the peer pressure, it was a Ragefest submission for a reason! Project Shoeshine: I would LIKE to play this, but I can't, because it was only available on Marky's forums, and they apparently disappeared at some point, and the link on the thread on serenes forest just gives me a 404 error. Fire Mumblem: Chronicles of Lussaria: All the numerous failures and train wrecks FINALLY come together to form a hack with an interesting plot, an entertaining cast and dialogue, good gameplay, and interesting concepts, which all lasts for an amazing TWO CHAPTERS! Beautiful! This will be the finale for this LP thread. OBLIGATORY LINKS: Markyjoe1990's youtube channel And his weird website Fire Mumblem "Fun" Pack(no idea if the download link works, but if it does you can get the first 4 hacks in the list.) Fire Mumblem: Chronicles of Lussaria(should be obvious which hack you can get, but again, no idea if the download link works.) THREAD RULES: 1: NO SPOILERS, I WANT ALL MY VIEWERS TO BE SURPRISED BY THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN 2: Don't be blind 3: Or an idiot. TABLE OF CONTENTS: Super Hard Lyn Mode: Page 1(HINT: SCROLL DOWN) Tactician's Hell(One episode, Page 3) Old Fire Mumblem(Page 4) New Fire Mumblem(Page 7) Corruption of Roy(Page 9) Chronicles of Lussaria(Page 11) Project Shoeshine(Page 13) And now, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO: Super Hard Lyn Mode: Episode 1: Prologue and Chapter 1: The Zaniness Begins What, were you expecting a custom title screen or something? I'd tell you that my birthday is actually in May, but then I'd have to kill you. UNEDITED CHAPTER TITLES! HURRAH! Oh, and all the text is just unedited FE7. Like, not even a find-replace. It's ALL THE SAME. As such, I'll be skipping just about all of it. Okay, looks norm OH CRAP LYN'S A MAGE, OSTIAN PRINCESS FLASHBACKS Oh hey, I have a commander symbol thingy now! I think that's actually new! MY FACE MY FACE IS MELTING FROM THESE TERRIBLE STATS Honestly, this and a lot of other things that happen later on make me think that this may have been intended to be a DEFLATION hack, although of course it doesn't really work. There is some good news however: Her fire tome has non-standard stats. You can work them out with some math(I must have misplaced my screenshot), but at least she'll have SOME offense in earlygame. Hey, some options are missing... OH NO THE TUTORIALS AREN'T REMOVED WHY Okay, this one actually ISN'T Marky's fault. You see, this hack was MEANT to be played on Lyn Hard Mode(not sure if this will cause bugs later...), but the ROM I've been using has been bugged, and it never shows me the mode select screen, always defaulting to Lyn's normal mode and then Eliwood normal mode. I've never actually played vanilla FE7 hector hard mode because I'm too lazy to go find a working ROM. Still, we're just going to have to deal with it for now, and hope nothing breaks horribly. The game makes it LOOK like I can attack from 2 spaces away and avoid a counter, but it won't let me move anywhere but adjacent tiles. THESE ARE THE WORST TUTORIALS EVER Uh oh, this isn't looking good... But then, Lyn goes against the laws of FE and doubles, with the power of TUTORIAL RIGGING! The game's "help" will actually make things a bit easier in the first few chapters, when it isn't being impossibly annoying. PAIN I don't know about that, we only won with the game helping us cheat! I'm forced to use a vulnerary, and then forced to attack Batta at 1 range. SUCH DIVERSE GAMEPLAY You know, Lyn's palette is actually surprisingly good. I think Lyn may have done a cheaty crit finish. Not sure. I forget, is the rigged level supposed to look like this? Either way, she needs magic. I NEED MORE CHOICES Maybe I'll find them in the next chapter. Sain and Kent: Roadblocking since 2001 THE TERRIBLENESS IS CATCHING UP WITH US Yes! Say, Sain, can you tell me about that green person hanging out up there? No? Okay then. Sain and Kent have actual stats, maybe modified, maybe not, I don't know. Either way though, they're hitting a stat the enemies actually have(that is to say, defense), but their offense is still better than Lyn's. And this lady...well, don't be fooled by the HP. She WILL steamroll everything. I have NO idea what her deal is, and while I would LIKE to have one of the cavs rescue her and prevent her from stealing XP, the tutorials will take that ability away from me, so she's gonna get some action. The bandits stats have actually been NERFED(their RES was buffed, though). Except for DAT CON Zugu has ordinary stats, crazy HP, insane weapons(but no 2-range option) and a droppable thunder, which WOULD be useful if it weren't for the fact that Lyn needs a D to use the thing, which we won't be getting for a few chapters. It's not your fault Sain, it's the fault of the weapon triangle! FREE THING Lyn once again can't double... OR CAN SHE Seriously, the ability of the game to rig battles is stronger than I thought. In several of Kent's combat engagements he could double the enemy, but he didn't double in battle because of these STUPID TUTORIALS WHAT IS THE GAME TRYING TO TEACH ME THAT MY TACTICS DON'T MATTER, JUST MY RNG Oh, what? The turn should automatically end! Yeah, you need to end your turn manually in this chapter. Believe it or not, there's actually a "good" reason, and I could have showed it off if I knew what it was while recording this chapter, but I didn't, so you'll have to wait until this "bug" crops up again. Here comes the citizen, here to steal our XP... This tutorial is even more BS-y, Sain totally should have landed that. BLAH BLAH BLAH, PLEASE STOP RAILROADING ME Meanwhile, the citizen is STEALING ALL THE XP. *eye twitches* Can't...rescue... SHE'S GONNA KILL THE BOSS, I GOTTA DO SOMETHING Lyn lures out that bandit across the bridge... And the citizen is distracted! And then we do this! This is the part where I notice the insane HP. And he has an Elixir, too! Yeah, you pretty much HAVE to use Lyn. I THOUGHT he was going to use the elixir here, but he didn't for some reason. After another chip, Lyn gains more magic! And Kent finishes! And gains a terrible level! I'm not sure if Marky actually changed growths. Thank you! Hmm... NEXT TIME: The Mani Katti's secret power! Try to guess what it is!
