  1. [FE5] Thracia 776 Reverse Recruitment Release

    Hmm what version of the patch are you using? Does it happen no matter which unit you move first? Are you moving and attacking or just moving? I will try to investigate this some more, I haven't had anyone else come across this yet. EDIT: I have been unable to replicate this glitch, I will need some more information to figure out what's going on.
  2. Update Log This patch is version 1.02 which fixes glitches with Forseti mistakenly being set as a physical weapon and a graphical glitch that occurs when looking at Alva's PRF in chapter 10. --- I am very happy to announce the release of my FE5 Reverse Recruitment hack. For those that don't know, a reverse recruitment hack is one that completely reverses the order in which characters are obtained throughout the game. So in the case of FE5, Galzus is the new lord. See the screenshots for examples. Patches Important Note: The English version of this hack uses the "Unified Thracia" menu translation by ChimeraHardline, and all credit for the translation goes to Chimera. Details on the menu translation can be found here. English RR Patch Japanese RR Patch These are IPS patches, so you will need an IPS patcher such as LunarIPS to apply them. You should apply these to an unheadered, .srm ROM version of Thracia 776. You will know the ROM is unheadered if the filesize is 4096 KB. It probably will not work if applied to the NP Rev A version of Thracia 776. Guide I have created a handy Spreadsheet guide that covers recruitment, special events, and PRF weapons to help you as you are playing through FE5 RR. Known Bugs/Issues Character portraits are not changed during dialogue or story. I will probably work on this once a full English patch is released. Some PRF weapons don't include who they are for in the item description. Some say they are for a unit that they are not actually for (Eg: Hammerne still says it is for Safy). Make sure you check the spreadsheet guide if you need help figuring out who a PRF belongs to. The cutscene after the prep screen in chapter 17A freezes the game. It is skippable, so press start as soon as you finish in the 17A prep screen. The animation where Finn kills the boss of chapter 23 will skip itself. This is to prevent the game from freezing if the animation plays out. Various animations are not correct (Eg: Unpromoted Deen has the female dragon rider animation instead of male) FAQ Do characters have their normal growths? How did you calculate the character base stats? Character growths are kept the same (Eg: Ced still has his insanely good growths from vanilla FE5, but now has room to grow and use them). Base stats were calculated by either leveling or "deleveling" characters to their new level, and adding in or subtracting promotion bonuses as necessary. When leveling or "deleveling" characters, all promotions were assumed to occur at level 10. What about movement stars, leadership stars, and PCC? Characters keep their movement stars and PCC (Eg: Galzus still has 5 movement stars and a PCC of 3). However, leadership stars are based on the character who is being replaced (Eg: Saias does not have 3 leadership stars. However, when Halvan is recruited in chapter 23, he will have 3 leadership stars). The leadership stars were done this way for 1) balance reasons; and 2) because leadership stars can be tricky to change for some characters. What about Weapon Ranks? Weapon ranks are based on the character that is being replaced. (Eg: Vanilla Dagdar had A rank in Axes, E rank in bows. Amalda, who replaces Dagdar, now has an A rank in swords, and an E rank in staves) I used some discretion when replacing mono-weapon characters with multi-weapon characters. Why does Ronan have an E rank in Swords? He is a sniper! This is because he needs to be able to use swords for the cutscene where he teaches Cain Astra in chapter 15, or the cutscene softlocks the game. Overall, I decided the impact of giving him E rank in swords was pretty low considering his join time and how slowly weapon ranks build in this game, you would have to grind the heck out of him to have him actually use any decent swords. How do you get through Manster without a thief? Every character that joins in the Manster arc now joins with 3 door keys in their inventory. This means there are enough door keys to get through and get all the chests in Manster just by recruiting all of the Manster units. Some enemies also carry door keys if you need more. Why doesn't Galzus have insane health like he does in vanilla? Galzus's HP was the one stat I decided to nerf from what it "should be" based on the calculations. Otherwise, he would have 40 HP at base. He is already a really strong Lord, he doesn't need 40 HP. It won't work in my emulator. What should I do? Use SNES9X. The English patch expands the size of the ROM, which some older emulators don't like. How did you make this? This hack was done using Nightmare and hex editing in HxD. Who are the route split characters? A Route Characters: Brighton (Alva must be dead or unrecruited), Machyua, Lifis, Dagdar B Route characters: Ronan, Marty, Eyvel How do supports work? Supports are based on the new characters. So Galzus only supports Mareeta, he doesn't support 10 people or whatever like Leif does. Credits The English patch is the work of ChimeraHardline. Many thanks to ZaneAvernathy, for answering questions I had and also for providing much of the FE5 hacking documentation I used. Thanks to the authors of the FE5 nightmare modules, without which this project would not have been possible. Also thanks to Kirb who helped supply me with some documentation that I needed.

  3. Thoughts on overclasses?

    I don't really agree with the idea of having a whole tier of classes locked behind DLC, so I'm not a fan.
  4. Where in the World are you?

    I was born and raised in Perth, Australia. I have lived in Colorado, USA for 5 years now, though.
  5. Advice on college and dorm life

    Roommates can be difficult, my roommate was very difficult freshman year. Then I got my own apartment and roomed with some friends for the next 3 years and it got a lot better. Just deal with it by letting them know what your problems are and trying to work through it. And making sure you have other places you can go hang out with when you need to get away from the dorm.
  6. Animated characters you guessed their gender wrong

    I agree on Midir, I totally thought he was a girl. I knew about the pairing system, so I was trying to pair her with guys for the first few chapters before I finally learned he was a guy.
  7. What do you guys think of Reddit's new design?

    I still use the old design, so that probably speaks to my opinion on the new one.
  8. Why, hello there

    Yeah I messaged a mod to figure out how to post a topic and they confirmed you need to have 10 posts, just for anyone that needed a confirmation.
  9. Hello World

    Welcome to Serenes! I'm new here myself, hope to see you around.
  10. Character-specific promotions

    I kinda like them, but I'd prefer that these atypical promotions were unique to a couple of characters and event-based promotions.
  11. Vestaria Saga 1: Official Translation Announced

    I'm excited for an English translation of this game! Combined with the fan translation of Berwick that's making good progress, it is a good time to be a Kaga fan.
  12. Fire Emblem - Genealogy 2nd Generation Remake

    Wow this seems like a really cool project, I'll be following progress on this! Can't wait to see the finished product.
  13. [FE10] Radiant Dawn Reverse Recruitment [Patch: 1-5]

    Wow, it's awesome someone is working on this! I can't wait for the full hack to be released, Radiant Dawn still doesn't have much in the way of a hacking scene. I will play some of the early chapters soon and let you know what I think.
  14. I just wanted to say that your work on this is amazing! Thanks for all of your hard work, can't wait for the day we will have a completed English translation for Thracia.
