FEbuilder sprite palette help

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm working on a small project at the moment. Right now it consists of turning the soldier class in FE8 into a trainee class and also having Franz be this trainee soldier class.

I'm having trouble with the palettes though. there are no characters with their own soldier palette so I can't simply edit an existing palette and point to it.

Also, I haven't messed with any ROM hacking tools in about a decade so FEbuilder is very new and strange to me. How do I go about adding new animations/palettes to FEbuilder as I need to make 6 new class palettes to accommodate Franz the trainee?

Any help is greatly appreciated, and although this project isn't super crazy, I can certainly use this knowledge in the future(I plan on making a hack with the Dynasty Warriors cast). Thanks to all who decide to help show me the ropes!

I think for the palettes, you have to go to Franz's palettes and edit them individually. Or you could set his Soldier palette to 0, which makes it the default Soldier palette.

I did it! there's an option for a new palette assignment in the character palette editor that will create a new pointer. when you make one, you have to click on the battle animation tab and select the class for which you want to adjust the palette of. after that it's just a matter of changing the colors until you're happy with how it looks and writing it to the ROM!

Thanks Odyssey for getting me to look in the right direction! Hopefully this information can help someone else too!

And Jubilee, I've seen like 10 videos on FEbuilder today and none of them walk through palette insertion/modification unfortunately 😕

So now I can't get Franz to promote when he hits lv 10. I saw a post on FEuniverse that says if you set the max level to 10 for the class then it should promote on the battle prep screen of the next mission. That's not happening though, any thoughts?

Is there a "Trainee Class" flag? If so, set it. If not, I dunno what else to say (I'm not familiar with FE8 hacking, sorry).

I found a trainee promotion patch, I'm currently testing the changes I made, basically added Franz to the list of trainees, So hopefully this works! and I couldn't find a trainee flag either, I think this patch is the only way to interact with the trainee classes
