[FE7/8] More than 5 Supports Fix

Recommended Posts

This patch removes the 5 support limit and replaces it with an "only one A Support" limit.
UPDATED
Additionally, there is a limit of 6 support partners at a time (can be changed/removed by changing the byte at $D/E900F8), to prevent display glitches caused by 7 or more supports.

FE7 (writes data to $D90080 - $D90123):

FE8 (writes data to $E90080 - $E90123):
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qhyh9abucmvee7g/FE8_MaxSupportFix.ups?dl=0

With well over 5 supports each, but no A supports:

With Eirika/Ephraim A, Eirika cannot get a second A support:

But she can get a B support:

There is a limit of 6 support partners at a time, though for FE7 you may want to change it to 5 (byte at $D900F8):
27f3b042ad33e0b2178014746a1fc1d66a1b043c

Example: Ephraim with 5 supports can get a 6th with either Eirika or L'arachel:

However once he supports Eirika he can no longer support L'arachel:

This deserves a lot more attention to be honest

as it creates many new opportunities and offers great flexibility.

It would be fun to see the final battle stats of Lv1 Eirika with all these supports XD.

Updated the patch to only allow 6 support partners at a time, fixing graphical glitches and still allowing up to 10 potential partners. Also streamlined it so it actually takes up less space than before.

If you already have the patch installed, paste this hex:
FE8 - paste to $E90080

Is there a way to change it so one can have more than one A support?

Or maybe is there a way to make it so characters X and Y can only get a C support and a B support?

Thanks!

More than one A support is easy enough, if you don't mind messing up paired endings. The second thing is a bit harder and I'm not keen on doing it without good reason.

Is there maybe a way to remove the addition of a paired ending between characters? If so, one could just give each character a single paired ending and that issue would be resolved!

Should be doable in Nightmare. Apply the patch, then change D/E900FB from DB to E0 to allow multiple A supports.

Thanks! I'll be sure to remember that for later.

This is a very good patch, thank you, good for the supports.

A question though, would you be able to make the patch work on already patched/hacked roms?

Because it works perfect on the clean rom but I tried it on BrightVega's FE8 master version hack but it can't be done it seems.

First, make a copy of your rom.

Then apply the support patch using NUPS.

In the patched rom, copy $E90080-123 (FE8) / $D90080-123 (FE7), or copy the hex I posted.

Paste it to a free space at an address ending in 0, 4, 8, or C.

Using the search and replace function, replace the pointer to $D/E90081 with a pointer to your new location + 1.

Finally go back to your original rom, copy whatever you have at $E/D90080-123, and paste it into the same place in the patched rom.

Alright thanks ^^ I'll try that out

but would it work as well if I would just ignore the patching error and force patch it even if its invalid, or would that make no difference either?

I really don't know how this things works but ended up downloading Event assembler which I think is what required to patch the game and after some playing with it I successfully patched my us version of FE8 but in the game itself I can't have supports at all, no matter how long I put two characters near each other. So I checked the same savestats with the clean version of the game and there the supports works normal. so am I doing something wrong? can someone give me a link with proper guide to the patching process?

The thread may now be a mess of broken Photobucket images, but the instructions don't really need them.
