How can I possibly create a custom Fire Emblem game of my own without ROM hacking?

Recommended Posts

Let's begin this preamble with a disclaimer: Yes, I know I can hack a Fire Emblem game to create a new one, but I do not have time to learn coding.

Just like I'm naturally bad at coding. Now some of you may ask: "Since there's so many FE games, how can you possibly get tired of them?"

You see, I'm very fond of story based franchises retaining their root, which Ace Attorney (keep that in mind) has managed to do even in recent years since its inception in 2001. Fire Emblem, meanwhile, has become more gameplay focused since 2013's Awakening. Now don't flame me just yet. It's true I don't like Awakening or its successors, but it's because of that I want to make my own Fire Emblem stories and chapters. I'm speaking in slight bias towards Ace Attorney because that series has everything I could possibly want. Their fanbase has created Case Makers, all free to use and user friendly (Ace Attorney Online is the one I use primarily). Fire Emblem's fanbase has created games of their own, but let's just say that my vision of FE as a story based game conflicts with these games themselves: while good, they're too hard. They make Thracia 776 look average in difficulty terms. I want to chase my dreams with any website (like Ace Attorney Online but for Fire Emblem), or program that makes it easy to develop your own maps and characters, with dialogue sections where you can modify background, characters, their movement, add custom characters, portraits and sprite palettes, custom music and background material, etc. 

Is there anything like an editor program, website, or other fanmade (or otherwise official) Fire Emblem Maker that exists? Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, I'll step down from the court for now.

I'll be happy to announce that my first Ace Attorney Online case, Turnabout Fate, is almost complete (Two notes to make: first, if Ace Attorney doesn't interest you, then ignore this announcement. Two, it doesn't have a demo) and will be released sometime soon (hint - it does have references and music from FE :Lyn: ).

And for those who wonder why I don't like Awakening and its successors: a video on my petty YouTube channel is in the works. It'll be a long one, so stay tuned. Peace!

There's this program called ''rpgmaker'' which allows people to make their own rpg's. Its generally for creating clasical rpg's but I believe its also what Kaga is using for his new series. Since Kaga uses it for his game it would be theoretically possible for anyone to make a FE game out of it.

Kaga is making Vestaria Saga with SRPG Studio.  RPG Maker is completely different.  While RPG Maker does have some custom plugins for strategy RPGs, SRPG Studio is tailor-made for Fire Emblem clones.

If coding is too troublesome, then you can find quite a large number of pre-made scripts that may help you.  I know somebody made a script for a neutral faction, though I haven't used it and the engine counts neutral units among the enemy.

SRPG Studio is about $60 on Steam, but it's well worth the price and it occasionally goes on sale.

Here's a link to the /r/SRPGStudio Discord server if you have any more questions: https://discord.gg/yRbuKUd

I'd say this definitely more touches the "Official FE Maker" side. Looks like it's still worth buying though.

I've heard rumors about SRPG but never actually thought the English version to be a reality (thank God it is). Sadly though, Steam is an unhealthy platform for my experience; I was hoping for it to be a purchasable self-purported program (like RPG Maker)... is it, at least alternatively?

It made my PC run so slowly that I had to uninstall it. Maybe they made it less demanding, but until then, Knightley's armor lacks durability... (:Valter: "Worthless!")

*giant oof*

Unfortunately, the English version only seems to be available through Steam.  Its translation is also really weird in places.  They outright used Google Translate for their online manual.

If you want it directly from SapphireSoft, I think you have to get the Japanese version.

You can start by reading everything, including subforum criteria.  Because you'll need to do a lot of research and reading if you want to make your own game.
