Does anyone remember the fe2 pc port?

Recommended Posts

Before the 3ds remake even came out,  I seem to remember a fan project that remake FE2 for the pc. It was extremely old and only in Japanese. I'm not sure if I just had a fever dream or something but I can remember playing some of it back in the day. I couldn't find any evidence of it existing though.

It strikes a familiar bell. I think it was made in RPG maker or something. I never personally played it, but from looking at videos one of the weird thing that struck me is that after beating Duma you suddenly have to play Thracia's final map.

Edit:

Here, is this it?

I remember it well. Though I question some of things it did, so I didn't really found it that much appealing to try.

It does serve as a nice little relic showing how desperate people were for some kind of version of Gaiden that was more player friendly than the NES. Though it didn't seem quite player friendly enough for me personally to give it a try.

Ah bro that shit was my jam. It's not quite a Fire Emblem game in feel, with the MP system it ends up feeling more like another SRPG game. Still really fun, if a bit buggy. It's honestly more broken than the original Gaiden, but I'd still recommend it to any FE fan.

Tbh I just like controlling people with the mouse, it's super convenient.

Yep this is it. I just confessed the part about it in Chinese and not Japanese.

I remember not finishing it because I did not like something. I don't remember what it was thought. What were some of the changes you did not like?

I remember this was really clunky because it just used an entirely different engine that was sorta archaic in its own way.  You didn't really traverse freely across the map, you just selected options after battle for if you wanted to go to place A or place B.  Also, some of the midis were just plain stinky, in only such a way that a standard Microsoft midi format can make them (I have to wonder if having a different soundfont installed would change the midi sound in-game, too).  Still, it was a decent attempt - probably better than I would've done, given the tools at our disposal at the time.

I played it because I wanted to try playing Gaiden but didn't want to put up with archaic Famicom FE nonsense.  Maybe at some point I could give it another go.
