  1. Agreed. The "inescapable room" in chapter 24x is like a metaphor for 4/5ths of the 776 Translation Project attempts I've seen on this site: suddenly disappearing without a trace.
  2. okay but can we get a version where the only option is waiting
  3. I would be more than willing to help in this department. I'd totally be down to help with this project!
  4. Legendary Archer: Lucina

    *eyes roll into the back of my head and die along with my interest in this game* They couldn't have made this character a preview of an archer unit from Three Houses, huh? All about those dank meme characters, huh? 12 Archers (13 if you wanted a RD AND PoR version of Rolf) from actual Fire Emblem games they haven't even used yet- and that doesn't even count all the enemy archer units- and they opt for name recognition, huh? Reply to this post with "aren't we a bit salty?" all you want, defend every bad decision the developers make to your dying breath, but this is just unimaginative. I come to the home site for news about the next mainline series title, or maybe an interview with the developer, and it sucks that the regularity of Heroes updates renders the home page a base for the next whale bait unit, and this latest news wouldn't be so pathetic if the lack of originality wasn't addressed before. I guess this is the new "normal" now, and I guess people get excited for it, and good for them, but honestly? I liked the community better before Heroes came out. Really speaks volumes when it's the fangame makers of this community that generate more original content than the official company.
  5. General US Politics

    So how about that SCOTUS nominee, huh? As a gay man, I can't wait to live the next 20-45 years living in fear that my marriage rights be taken away (by determining my right to marry shouldn't be nationally observed, like anti-segregation laws or equal voting rights, but rather determined by individual states, of which some wouldn't hesitate to refuse to recognize gay marriage) because 3rd party/non-voters thought "the lesser of two evils is still evil".
  6. I speak for myself and myself alone. If they want to be disrespectful towards the fan-translator's time that's their lack of humility, not mine.
  7. It's not that we're entitled or anything, it's just been how many years since literally every other FE got a full-playable translation and after years of needing to put up with the Shaya patch (in America!), NoA's total abandonment, and Project Naga not really giving us much of anything beyond FE4, we just want this one to be THE ONE that seals the deal. Because we love FE5, in all its flaws and fucked-up quirks, and we want everyone to know what it feels like to play it without the bullshit of the Shaya patch's fucked-up menus. We get it: these people have actual jobs that pay actual money that work actual hours to make an actual living to pay for an actual room, actual insurance, and save up for actual retirement. Work's long and hard and at the end of the day, more often than not, I wouldn't feel like doing a translation patch in what little free time I'd have on every single day. To say that doing this stuff isn't taxing is a total lie, and even more so to have a schedule to do it, and the pressure of actually finishing it- let alone with a degree of quality you'd find yourself satisfied with- is fucking overwhelming. We just... hope, you know? That they can rise up and make it, this time. Like rising against the Loptyr Sect, you know? Personally? I'd be one of the first to hop on if the translators made a patreon, or a GoFundMe, or a Ko-Fi page (and if you're worried about legal issues from Nintendo, the translator could just draw pictures of stickmen and we'd be funding stickman drawings, or something). Otherwise, our best wishes are all we can give.

  9. Emblem Chronicle VII

    The amount of work you've had to put in to understand how maps are inserted, how events are managed, not to mention the dialogue, the fantastic portraits... all I can say is: Elimine bless you, Zane.
  10. What would you want out of a FE5 Echoes?

    Ronan: Okay, so I'm from a fishing village, but hear me out: I really, really fuckin' love magic.
  11. IF We Got a Sequel....

    If we got a sequel then I'd be seriously considering that the execs at IS/Atlus have a combination of some sort of psychosis and being thoroughly out of touch with their fanbases.
  12. Step 1: Realize there are over 40 recruitable characters from your game to choose from. Because, come on. It's Heroes, where even the most obscure characters have a chance of making it in. Like, Raigh? Where the hell does he rank on the "overall series popularity list"? But he still got in, because Heroes. So remember: don't be afraid to use units that people don't recognize through some fucking moronic in-joke meme. Step 2: See the classes of the characters you're willing to put in. So say, if you're absolutely insistent on making it a mounted mage and a mounted sword user, look at all the classes you can recruit in the game! There are tons to choose from, and you've got at least one unit for each weapon type! No need to get repetitive and use the same characters over and over, because there's at least 2 other mage knights and 6 other mounted sword users. Step 3: Choose which characters fit the classes you wish to put in. So if you had to put in a mounted mage, there is a temptation to lazily rely on overblown memetic recognition of character to do another iteration of them, but you're too professional for that. So instead, look at another choice, like Eyrios! He's got a cool character angle, like being a commoner but hates the lack of class mobility in the feudalist/royal class structure! Or how about Miranda! Her distrusting attitude from the empire hunting Leif creates a unique characterization, with the conflicting feelings between blaming Leif and blaming the Empire for the brutalization of Alster, caught in between impossibly brutal times and circumstances that allow no real satisfying resolution! Intriguing! And if you needed a mounted sword user, maybe you could give that to, I dunno, maybe Fred! He's actually recruitable in the game he's from, and even has a relationship to Olwen, a character you already put in and has absolutely no fucking need to have another version of. Or how about Fergus, or Diarmuid, mounted sword users who not only are actually recruitable, but have a personal weapon that actually existed in their game! Cheers!
  13. Fire Emblem 4 Echoes Ideas

    Idea: Make FE4's two halves as separate games in the vein of FE5, with smaller maps and tighter level design, and use the same engine to basically remake Thracia 776. You save money by using more or less the same engine 3 games in a row and you don't have to waste all that time in chapter 4 moving all your units around that fucking mountain range.
  14. Falchion deserved much more

    Welcome to 9 years ago, where the hopes of playing a version of FE1 with all the modernized mechanics and visual/audio aesthetics of the GBA games were mercilessly dashed in favor of crap mechanics and poor polish. I'd say things like "the Falchion being underpowered in lieu of a forged wyrmslayer is a symptom of the broken forging system" or "even if Marth did get a custom animation it would still look awful because the visual design is awful" or "the hitrate calculations are bullshit why would you even use terrain if the enemy hitrate is going to be over 50% regardless" or "the map is way too damned zoomed in for how large the maps are", or "why the fuck do we care about these characters if 95% of the cast gets zero dialogue beyond their recruitment convo and death quotes", or "what the fuck were the designers smoking when they chose what the gaiden chapter requirements are", but it's pointless. Even if you were to fix all of those things, you wouldn't even have Shadow Dragon anymore. It'd be a different engine, and mechanically, a different game. Thracia 776 may have its bullshit reinforcements and guide-dang-it moments, but Shadow Dragon is just shameful. The biggest problem to have with Shadow Dragon is to play it.
  15. FE8 - Rewrite (Prologue-Route Split)

    Is it okay if I post a playthrough on YouTube?
