  1. An update is now available in the OP. Four new chapters have been translated, making the script complete through chapter 13. Notably, this means that the game is now over halfway translated (18/35 chapters)! To keep things consistent with how the patch has progressed, I've also gone through all previous scripts and revised them accordingly. Finally, the scripts for the four new chapters (11x, 12, 12x, and 13) are also now available in the .zip archive in the OP.
  2. An update is now available in the OP. The script is now complete through chapter 11, and numerous other small bugs have been fixed. The scripts for the three new chapters (9, 10, and 11) are also now available in the .zip archive in the OP.
  3. ROM Hack and Fan Game Directory

    Could my FE11 Full Content Patch and SoV Disable World Map Reinforcements be added to the directory, please?
  4. FEE3 2018: Can't stop, won't stop!

    Project Name: Project Exile Platform: FE5 Showing: Mekkah has already generously volunteered to LP the patch for FEE3. He can pick any of the translated chapters (we're done through 8x). I'm also up for an interview, I suppose, if that's something people are interested in.
  5. Project Exile (yet another) Thracia 776 Menu and Script Translation Thracia 776 has long been the FE community's white whale. Project Exile is my own attempt to finally put this English patch to bed, using the remnants of Kirb's patch as a foundation and taking the menu translation (and considerable technical advice) from Zane. The script uses a new translation, done by myself. In the spirit of transparency, and to help disseminate this new translation more quickly, you can view complete PDFs of my translation below. As you would expect, I've translated a few names differently from how many people might know them, but any changes were made for the sake of clarity. Without further ado, download links follow below, as well as contact info and the Discord server the patch is being coordinated out of. Download here PDFs of the script Screenshot gallery Installation: 1. Obtain an unmodified, unheadered ROM of Thracia 776. I cannot help you do this. Your ROM's MD5 checksum should be equal to: 2A33F6F4D8070426C60BECE6E7F1409B If you don't know what that means, this website can help you: http://onlinemd5.com/ 2. Extract your unmodified ROM, LunarIPS.exe, and ProjectExile120818.ips to the same folder. 3. Open LunarIPS.exe. 4. Click the "Apply IPS Patch" button. 5. Select ProjectExile120818.ips. 6. Select your unmodified Thracia ROM. 7. Your previously unmodified file, which you selected in step 6, is the patched ROM you should now use. Its MD5 checksum should now be equal to: 41B90608B8F2FD6E48523611A8FFD85A Known issues: - Individual reactions to Leif dying in the game over dialogue are not yet translated (Finn's response, Eyvel's response, etc.) - In the shop menu, certain characters of description text will temporarily remain on screen after moving the cursor to another item - Win text for the Arena is not yet translated - Text on the world map has not yet been updated to reflect the translation, nor has the title screen been altered - Other minor text headers have slight visual errors To preempt some additional questions: "What's your stance on names from Heroes content?" If it's in mainline Heroes content OR was in Awakening, I'll use it. Names from Heroes supercede names from Awakening (so "Loptous" in favor of "Loptyr", for instance). However, this has one exception: names that were ONLY in the CYL poll for Heroes will be ignored. If this sounds arbitrary, that's because it is. Joking aside, though, with names like "Carrion" it's easy to get the impression that the CYL list was probably a rush job and shouldn't be taken as gospel. "What's your stance on Project Naga?" To be clear, I and my team have absolutely no involvement in Project Naga whatsoever. However, to avoid confusion, since most players will be coming from Project Naga's FE4, any names that were used in PN will be used here as well, provided they aren't contradicted by Heroes material (so retaining location names such as "Connaught" over "Conote", for instance). PN was how I was exposed to FE4 to begin with, and I think BoH and the PN team did a stellar job, so this is the least I can do. "How can I help?" There are two areas I need help with, first and foremost: Firstly, the menu font could be altered to be more legible and technically flexible - currently, the number of unique character strings it can display is limited, unlike the dialogue font. If you have experience with SNES fonts and would like to help, please see the Discord info below. Secondly, precise editing of the world map has yet to be done, and location names are still untranslated ("Conote", etc.). If you have expertise with this area and believe you can help, see the Discord info below.

  6. A major update is now available on the download page which, among other things, addresses the problem with red friendly ballisticians. Shamelessly copying from the changelog: - Fixed a major bug with battle animations in the FE11FCPWithGraphics variant - Friendly ballisticians will no longer appear red in the FE11FCPWithGraphics and FE11FCPWithSyncPatch variants - All patches will no longer trim ROMs and leave them at the original 64mb size to be compatible with certain emulators Barring further issues, this should be the last update for this patch. Famous last words, I know. Oh, and pinging for convenience - @MegaTheGamer, this update fixes the animation glitch you found. I'm glad you were able to laugh it off in the Twitch clip; I've seen much angrier reactions to glitches.
  7. Please specify which version of the patch you're using, and provide a save file for me to test with. Also try other variants of the patch and see if they work - your save file is compatible between patches; just restart the current chapter (load the save made after the last chapter ended and before the next chapter began).
  8. I'll be posting another translation comparison using BSFE chapter 1, "Fall of the Palace," after my work with the Shadow Dragon Full Content Patch has calmed down. I'm kind of double-dipping with SD hacking and FE12 translation, sorry about that - but the SD work is winding down, so I'll be back to focusing on the translation shortly.
  9. I've updated the patch so that no enemies in Prologue 1 scale up, and only two of the enemies in Prologue 2 scale up - 3 and 4 have everyone scaled, but by then you'll have an army of five, a cache of vulneraries, and be in an outside map with lots of terrain to play with. This update also includes a fix to glitched Pegasus Knight animations in the FE11FCPWithGraphics.xdelta variant. I've uploaded a fixed version to RH.net, but they take a while to process updates, so you can find the fixed version here until then: EDIT: Update live on RH.net page APPLY THIS TO A CLEAN ROM; DON'T APPLY IT TO YOUR ALREADY-PATCHED ROM. Also, existing saves are compatible, but I would restart the current chapter you're on - load the save made after you clear one chapter and before the next starts.
  10. I'm unable to replicate this glitch, and judging by the error message, you're using the wrong ROM. Make sure the ROM - BEFORE you patch it, just completely unaltered - matches these values and use the linked website to check: Original CRC32: 4CE55236 Original MD5: 5B7A037DFF5A904078404922642A01E8 Original SHA-1: 5174FBAB0C159CE247CCF133A8103B79FAE1435F http://onlinemd5.com/
  11. Shadow Dragon - Full Content Patch This is a merged patch of all my (Cirosan's) previous mods for Shadow Dragon - it combines the Prologue in Hard Mode, Updated Gaiden Requirements Removal, Online Shop Items Integrated into Normal Gameplay, and Always Recruit Norne patches into one. This allows the player to recruit all units, experience all chapters, access all classes, and use the game's full inventory without content being locked behind death requirements, difficulty level, or the now-defunct Online Shop. As an added bonus, this patch also comes with a variant that updates certain unit graphics and battle background graphics to their FE12 versions; comparison screenshots can be found on the download page. In general, the FE12 graphics use a slightly brighter color palette and make the black outline around units less noticeable. Finally, this mod includes a version which includes Arch's Sync Patch. This patch updates growth rates, class stats, and weapons to use their FE12 stats; however, it makes the game considerably easier than intended, as the FE12 statistics for these things were balanced for an entirely different game. Still, the option is provided here for those who would prefer it. Note that the Sync Patch includes the FE12 graphical update. NB: All patches have a glitch on flashcarts - WHICH DOES NOT HAPPEN ON EMULATORS, ONLY FLASHCARTS - that will cause a softlock during the decoy cutscene in Prologue 4. This can be worked around by playing past that section on emulator (such as Desmume) and copying the save file back to the flashcart. The game will function perfectly on flashcarts after this section. The combined patch without any extras is FE11FCP.xdelta. The combined patch with the FE12 graphical updates is FE11FCPWithGraphics.xdelta. The combined patch with Arch's Sync Patch is FE11FCPWithSyncPatch.xdelta. USE ONLY ONE PATCH. This was made using the US version of FE11, so you should use an .nds file from that region. Installation: 1. If you have not already, download the Delta Patcher utility here: https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/704/ 2. Obtain an unmodified ROM of FE11. I cannot help you do this. 3. Extract DeltaPatcherLite.exe, your unmodified .nds file of FE11, and EITHER FE11FCP.xdelta OR FE11FCPWithGraphics.xdelta OR FE11FCPWithSyncPatch.xdelta to the same folder. DO NOT USE MORE THAN ONE.xdelta FILE; CHOOSE ONLY ONE. The difference is explained above. 4. Open DeltaPatcherLite.exe. 5. Click the "Open" button for the "Original file" box and select the unmodified .nds file of FE11. 6. Click the "Open" button for the "XDelta patch" box and select EITHER FE11FCP.xdelta OR FE11FCPWithGraphics.xdelta OR FE11FCPWithSyncPatch.xdelta. 7. Click the "Apply Patch" button. Users with older PCs may have to wait a few moments. 8. Your previously unmodified file, which you selected in step 5 as the "Original file", is the patched ROM you should now use.

  12. Shadow Dragon - Always Recruit Norne

    I'm unable to reproduce that glitch, at least in Desmume.
  13. A finalized version of the mod which greatly mitigates the chapter 1 glitch is available here: I'd like to thank all of you for your help with playtesting this. You've all been credited under the appropriate section in the thread.
  14. Allows the player to always recruit Norne at the end of Prologue 4, regardless of how many units are alive. Alterations have been made to Chapters 1-3 to accomodate having her as an extra unit. FE11AlwaysRecruitNorne.xdelta incorporates the Prologue in Hard Modes Patch, for obvious reasons. FE11RecruitNorneWithGaidens.xdelta incorporates BOTH the Updated Gaiden Requirements Removal Patch AND the Prologue in Hard Modes Patch. USE ONLY ONE PATCH, NOT BOTH. This was made using the US version of FE11, so you should use an .nds file from that region. Download here Installation: 1.

For those wondering, a patch that merges all of my Shadow Dragon mods will be coming shortly, and will also feature compatibility with the Sync Patch. I wanted to provide this mod as a stand-alone patch, however, for users that don't want to use all of my mods at once.
