[FE8] [Complete] The Sun God's Wrath (Final V1.52 release 1/3/2021 - 27 Chapters)

Recommended Posts

tl;dr This is an FE8 hack. Final version 1.52 released 1/3/2021.

First release notes and DL below. READ THE README AND CREDITS!!!!!

 

Alright then, it's time.

Final patch V1.52 is ready. Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ck6l6c5ri3fwhon/SGW_Complete.zip?dl=0

Mobile Patcher link: https://patches.emblemier.com/project/sungod/overview

Discord: https://discord.gg/TbxxXMy

This is the final version of this hack. It is 27 chapters long (prologue - final) and there are no gaiden chapters.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, READ THE README AND CREDITS!!!!!

To sum up some stuff from the readme and to express some initial concerns of mine:

Have fun and enjoy!

The Sun God's Wrath(SGW) is the new version of the old sequel to a previous hack I made(Corrupt Theocracy (CT)), The Sun God's Challenge(SGC). This is a FE8 hack that features a variety of new features, most notably skills, some third tiers, new classes, and of course new maps, mugs, characters, events, and music (though because of CT some older versions of characters still use mugs like the ones they used back then for continuity reasons). If by some odd chance you have an old .sav of SGC, this hack won't work with it due to the fact that this hack is pretty much remade.

This hack is being designed so that having played CT is in no way a requirement. I don't recommend playing CT and instead
recommend reading TheMoniker's awesome LP found here: http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=50956 if you are
really curious about it and would like a potentially heightened experience while playing this hack. History is written by
the winners, and there were various winners in CT, so part of the story is learning what really happened in CT anyway since
there are conflicting accounts.

Like CT, SGW features many protagonist characters with varying degrees of importance, but there will be less/more mixed up game over conditions
unlike in CT. The lead protagonist/Donovan of this hack is Astrea, a member of Propater, pictured below.

The story will have you follow her and the people she meets as you do your part in trying to save the world. How Astrea manages to be a key
figure among the various figures of importance you will come to meet will be made more clear over time.

Wow those credits. This is massive.

How long have you been working on this project (entire verse)?

Yes this hack is pretty massive thanks to all the animations, music, and spells added in. I've tried to include everything the community has made so far that I could in it.

I spent ~ three months on corrupt theocracy, ~nine months on sun god's challenge(not including ideas made while working on CT), and ~three months on Sun god's wrath so far.

...I remember this. I'll keep an eye on this, mostly because I played the original forever ago :B

Thank you! I hope this ends up being at least better than the old version.

holy shit dude, i actually played the original of this and corrupted theocracy

with that said, this looks far better, i think i wouldn't mind playing a completed version.

Thanks! I've taken note of your past criticism so that this hack fixes the problems you've mentioned before.

Sun God's Challenge was entertaining. This seems cool, can't wait to see progress!

Thanks! I'm hoping to finally have chapter screens up by the end of the month, it's just been kinda grating working on all the classes so I haven't been able to work as fast as I have in the past.

Speaking of classes, I got a few more done so I updated the checklist. Every time I post in this thread, if I have a small update for it I'll make the changes in the checklist and mention so in my posts.

Also I forgot Zalhman's song editor was used in this hack since I hadn't used it yet when I wrote the credits so that's been added in.

Hey! I'm in the credits for something! :D:

V1.0 of my skill patch will include skills specifically requested by Alfred Kamon so I don't know how applicable it'll be for you, but there will definitely be at least a few skills you could use.

It's looks pretty cool keep it up

Thanks! I feel like I can only say thanks so many times, but I hope that this can live up to everyone's expectations.

... wait, /the Sun God's Challenge/?!?!?!

Is this the real life? Hype. :D

Yes, this is real life and you aren't dreaming! Thanks for any continued support!

Speaking of credits I realized somethings were missing and added them in, including your documentation on battle sprites being half words.

As long as the skill patch has what Hextator's did(Vanilia FE8's plus Adept, Vantage, and Astra which I think you've already said you've done) anything more is a boon regardless of whether it all gets used or not! I'm looking forward to how it turns out!

As far as updates/edits to the checklist go, I've finished the classes and am currently debugging them. Once this is done, I'll just have some little other fixes to make and then I can finally start events and texts. I'll be a bit busy this weekend so hopefully I will finally have some actual screen shots by next weekend.

I'm going to keep the Vanilla skills, but I'm changing the activation rates based on Alfred's specifications namely:

Sure Shot = (Skill + Luck)% chance

Pierce = Either (Mag)% or (Skill)% based on which version you use

Great Shield = (Def/2)%

Also, the battle skills(which would be the ones introduced in Hextator's patch but with animations) will be done after I do the stat buff skills like All Stats +2 and Wrath

That's perfect! Making the level cap 30 was what I originally did to get around the old level based calculations but I decided to keep using that system because of reclassing anyway.

Mind providing a link to Sun God's challenge? It'll be a good hack to play through in anticipation for this! It looks awesome! Do you need help writing or beta testing? If so, PM me!

I'm sorry to say, but all links to SGC have been removed for reasons I don't want to go into. This hack is going to be too different from SGC to really be worth going back through SGC anyway as characters and chapters from SGC are gone and the story has been largely redone.

As far as writing help goes, I'd only want help with supports to speed things along, and as a requirement for wanting to help with those you'll have to be familiar with Corrupt Theocracy, though I'd still give an outline for what to write.

Beta testing I'm not really up to and I haven't fully decided how to go about it yet.

The only thing I'd kinda like help with at the moment is making battle palettes. I think I've gotten all the kinks with all the classes worked out so this is what I was going to start working on next before I can finally start tackling events, dialogue, and supports.

If you want background info on this hack, play Corrupt Theocracy.

That being said. . .good to see that this is back, since I happen to like Elliot.

considering my history with this hack series, i wouldn't mind being on the eventual beta tester list.

don't gotta think about it now tho, just throwin it out there

Yeah I have no problem with either of you two being beta testers, it's just that I haven't decided how I'd want to go about beta testing yet. I feel like I'd just ask you guys to to specific tasks for event testing incase I missed stuff when I test it myself.

If you want background info on this hack, play Corrupt Theocracy.

That being said. . .good to see that this is back, since I happen to like Elliot.

I think every playable character from part 2 of corrupt theocracy and a few others will be at least mentioned/referenced other than

Gan at the moment since I can't think of how to reference him in the story since his ending is just him sailing away to find new lands and I don't see how he'd tie back into the story from there.

I think ~30 of them are actually in the game, the rest are dead since characters like Mark or Bowen wouldn't live another 30 years for example or were killed in combat like Flo as mentioned in the OP.

With the magic of jjl2357's extended weapon rank patch, we have:

cWv7rKY.pngrjzTBOS.png

tIHQGJk.pngiqPGk6x.png

the FE10 magic triangle. Along with some other changes to the weapon triangle detailed below(spoiled for potential size):

SGW Triangle:

Sword:

-5 hit -3 atk vs lance

+15 hit +1 atk vs axe

Lance:

-10 hit -2 atk vs axe

+5 hit +3 atk vs sword

Axe:

-15 hit -1 atk vs sword

+10 hit +2 atk vs lance

Bow:

+20 hit +1 atk vs magic offense

+10 hit vs sword/axe/lance offense

+10 hit vs magic defense

no other boost on defense

light:

+5 hit +3 atk vs dark

-15 hit -1 atk vs anima

dark:

-5 hit -3 atk vs light

+15 hit -1 atk vs anima

wind:

-5 hit -3 atk vs fire

+15 hit +1 atk vs thunder

fire:

-10 hit -2 atk vs thunder

+5 hit +3 atk vs wind

thunder:

-15 hit -1 atk vs wind

+10 hit +2 atk vs fire

stones are not part of any weapon advantage/disadvantage.

Since jj's patch doesn't work with the weapon rank bonus patch the triangle has gone through some changes.

As far as other updates go, at this point the base ROM is pretty much complete with only very small fixes left to address, so all that's left are the events and text aka the meat of the hack. Edit: Oh and all the unit palettes too.

And chapter construction has slowly begun.

Here are some early prologue screens. Haven't started the dialogue or adjusted stats yet. Classes, names, and weapons are all correct.

xP63dtx.pngcdBdYd5.png1zIhR0i.png

Fos9343.pngnd2LRkU.png

For cutscenes I'll occasionally make use of pre-existing FE8 maps, but all maps are otherwise new, except for two which are based on old non GBA maps.

There are also some maps that are still the same from SGC. There are 8/28 maps like this, the prologue being the same as last time.

All chapters follow a very similar formula. It either starts or ends with a cutscene taking place way from the main story, then Anna and Jake give a mission briefing and clear time condition for bonuses and penalities, the chapter happens, and finally it ends when you complete whatever the given mission is thus moving on to the next chapter.

The goal of the prologue is to defeat all the enemies. Like in SGC, it's just a test Astrea and co are forced to take given to them by Astrea's mother.

Excluding the small text fixes and the like I need to make, the prologue is now done. I'm going to do all the supports for the prologue characters before moving on to chapter 1.

All four of the legendary heroes that took part in the battle against Pyron use past FE character mugs to keep in line with that thing. So Jedah uses Morva, Alester Roland, Hiro Durban, and Brammimond Brammimond. Other than a few other characters from corrupt theocracy and NPC's, that's where the use of reused mugs ends. Pyron is Pyron just because just like in Sun God's Challenge.
