    Right click your game on dolphin, properties/options, and disable NMM emulation or something like that - search in this thread for "Dolphin" until you find a post of mine explaining this.
  2. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Does it crash right after the exterior cutscene (or when you press START to skip it), when the interior map of the chapter itself would be loaded?
  3. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Huh, I didn't know Boon doesn't work if the user itself is also asleep.
  4. It’s gonna be funny if he’s deVoid of vengeance.
  5. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Maybe this one will make things clearer? I realised my intentions might not have been so obvious to others.
  6. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Seconding the hidden item boost; you already implemented it in ReDux, right?
  7. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Well, I do like having two or three (temporarily) SPD-blessed units per playthrough, considering there's bound to be the same amount of SPD-screwed units per playthrough. It keeps thigns exciting. Also keep in mind that mages are very dependant on STR procs for leveling up their AS on mid-rank tomes and above, so that they are only trly AS-screwed if they are both Str-screwed and non-SPD-blessed, so the chances of them being SPD-blessed mitigates it, while still not elevating them into the next SPD-tier.
  8. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    I dunno about further scaling down SPD; I'd still like having to plan for the enemy fast units (not just swordmasters, but also pegasiand even some cavaliers) to double mybelow-average Spd units and laugh at their puny attacks.

    You'd confuse a bit fewer people if you kept the .ppf extension to the patch files :P
  10. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Hah, I told him he didn’t do it right back when he released the first video. Hoping you can get a bit of promotion for your minimalist patch in return. Shame that Mekka seems to have been exposed to that ReDux+ stream and based his opinion of ReDux on it.o Did you offer to make Florete loght-based too? And when altering the character bases to simulate transfer bonuses, did you also add the extra bonds from transferred A supports?

    >I almost never give discipline to someone who has only 1 weapon type You can't really have all three of Illy, Leo and Nolan reach A rank before 1-E to use Arcthunder, Heavy Longbow and Silver Axe having only a single Discipline to share between the whole brigade, it's a choice, but hey, Fire Emblem sometimes is. There's also Micky if she wants to wield that Fenrir without using the skill, but you're gonna need to not be so conservative with Ruin to reach it. So will Meg still have access to all three melee weapon types? And what will her tier 3 class name be? Battle Maiden? Lady War? Walk-yre?
  12. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Would we still need to be wary of her dying with a staff equipped and her full animation on?

    Results from my Dolphin testing: In order to find which Dolphin version introduced the real-Wii crash, I the typical range-halving method, and found that the first version to do so was 6568, whose changelog was simply "Set bMMU to true by default on x64". I then manually disabled MMU in that same version (right click the ReDux file and select Properties; I haven't found this setting on the global options menues), and sure enough, it didn't crash. Then I tried it with the latest release, 8783, and the same happened: the crash occurs if and only if MMU is enabled, which since 6568 is done by default (Dolphin's per-game settings have three values: checked/enabled, empty/disabled, square/default. The value of default for MMU is enabled, so emptying the square solves it and remembers it even after updating the game). Not sure if this setting can be changed through backup loaders in a real Wii.
  14. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    You are right - done.
  15. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    (Double-posting because it's not letting me edit either) Also, that happened while I was recording. I'm not one for streaming nor video processing, so I just used Dolphin's Frame Dump. Here's my typical run of 1-P and 1-1 (moreorless; there's a general outlined strategy but it always deviates based on crits and misses). No real feedback here (it's audioless after all), just wondering if you've seen these approaches.
  16. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    I just stumbled upon something interesting: Remember how when trying to play ReDux on a real Wii it would always crash when trying to load the 1-2 map, but not on Dolphin? Well, today I updated Dolphin to the latest developement version (5.0-8845), and what do you know, it crashes there too consistently. After a few tries to make sure it happens 100% of the time, I reverted to the previous version I had installed, (5.0-3147), and it loaded it fine without crashing. I might go ahead and try to pinpoint exactly which build of Dolphin got close enough to emulating a real Wii as to reproduce this crash. Mind you I'm still using the quite old 0.8.7.2 ReDux patch; I dunno if you've solved that crash on your end yet.
  17. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    If by tweaking EXP stuff and figuring out how hard’s hidden levels work you can produce a version of normal mode that is exactly like vanilla hard but with WTA and enemy range indicator (plus text corrections, but still with physical florete), then I’m sure the purists would be interested in it. In fact that was kinda what I hoped Mangs had asked you to do for him, as otherwise and besides transfers he seems to be going to play exactly the same hardmode he already had (still without having ever played the game with WTA), specially as I think he didn’t start on Second Playthrough mode this time either, despite him claiming he did.
  18. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Honestly, I feel that no matter how lite you want that patch to be, you should still swap Leo's cancel with Disarm (do the reverse with Brom too if you want to conserve the total skill amounts; to him it's usually the same wether he procs one or the other in part 2). No magic-based Florete? That seems like an honest oversight in vanilla. Also, you should include other miscellanious corrections/fixes, like Wildheart's description.
  19. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    There's an old thread (just google Radiant dawn hacking notes) where the preparation steps (file extraction/decompression) are explained, and which covers the basic stuff (and includes a couple of nighmare modules). However I'm pretty sure Dunal is the current RD hacking eminence (not that you couldn't count the candidates with one hand), and thre's more that he has uncovered that I'm sure he'll release once ReDux sees 1.0. The biggest hurdle to hacking (besides trying to figure out how stuff not documented yet works) is map data expansion. The way RD's map files work is that they are hex files where at some point the stuff included in the map (enemy types, items, new characters; it'd be more precise to say what is to be loaded rather than included, besides what you bring from convoy) is first listed by name IDs, and then through the part of the file where the map contents are listed, such stuff is indicated by the pointer of its name ID in the file (for instance, where you list the inventory of an enemy, if you want him to have a ilver lance you write the pointer (with offset) of where in the file it said "silverlance_id" or something. The problem comes when you want to add stuff to the cahpter that in vanilla isn't in the "stuff to load" list, as adding it displaces the rest of the file, and so pointers to the displaced stuff have to be changed to their new values. In particular, I think adding new army data (like Elites; note that they're counted separately from other enemies in the Status screen) displaces more stuff than just adding new items or enemies/classes. What I don't know at all is how to edit placement of map tiles/terrain (besides positioning/deployment; Dunal has that figured out), like where the bushes at. An argument can be made there, though keep in mind their Hit is balanced around the -30hit penalty they already take at their mon range of 3. Reread the OP; there are now four planned difficulties, and each will be a separate patch to be played on Normal Mode as to keep the WTA (and without it dark magic's Aura doesn't work either). Also IIRC many map data is shared (file-wose) between Normal and Hard modes, so you can't really balance both at once very well if you already make NM a good challange.

    Wildheart only halves tranformation gains when you use the half-shift command. You can have the skill equipped and still transform completely if your gauge is full, so the skill itself doesn’t do anything detrimental by just having it equipped - it might save you in a pinch whne you really need a non-ready laguz to transform and attack in the same turn.
  21. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Is it really just siege tomes (and cards too I guess) that ignore ledge advantage? I could’ve sworn I saw a streamer test something else negative. Resire maybe? I know it doesn’t suffer the lonbow-esque penalty at range 3. So you have a version where the tigers and the kitties swap recruitment places? I assume it’s from different patches, and not based on in-game triggers, like Micaiha’s SS rank? Please tell me in that version youd’ll swap lethe/lyre/mist’s “disguise” portraits with mordecai/kayza/boyd’s, as I guess they will be the ones seducing the guards into getting drugged.
  22. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Dame increase fro. Ledge advantage is indeed in Vanilla IIRC. However, I got the impression from a stream a while back that it might not apply to all weapon types, though I might be wrong here.
  23. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Oh, then if the difficulties are completely swappable inbetween chapters, do definitely do mention that in the OP - something like "Finding a particular chapter too tough? Found a map particularly interesting and want to play a more challenging version right now? You can swap without breaking your save in any way and swap them back later, or never!"
  24. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Come to think of it, most of the difficulty differences allow for swapping between difficulties at beggining-of-chapter saves by just swapping the iso, right? Except maybe the extra player authority stars and BK's stats, if those are set at the moment of recruitment/first map appearance. EDIT: Another prettier table.
  25. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn ReDux (v0.8.72 CH 2-2)

    Considering the pride of some poeple though, maybe rename "Intermediate" to "Experienced", so you're getting through the message that first time players might be better off with Standard regardless of previous Fire Emblem experience. Also if you think "Experienced" and "Advanced" aren't immedieately orderable for everyone, rename "Advanced" to "Expert". Maybe add in Experienced's description that it requires/it's better for players to be moderately aware to the changes of each map and enemies/upcoming characters (and specially of how weaponry changes effect them) in order to overcome everything without issues. This would do.
