  1. After testing so many times things to record gameplay, I decided to give it a shot by making a sorta Let's play of Wario Land 4. I could do a FE next if things go well. Since I'm totally new to this, the commentary is provided by subtitles so you have to turn them on. It can also be a little cheezy, but I'm not afraid of showing my adorkable side. Here's the first part!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQBryKN2G7I I'm totally open for criticism, so if you wanna suggest something, tell me c:
  2. I did see some game companies were bundling a bunch of classic and nearly classic games and porting to modern consoles as Collections like the Mega Man Legacy Collection series, Street Fighter Collection, Capcom Beat Em Up Collection, Sega Ages, The Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition, and much more. So what do you guys think if Nintendo and Intelligent Systems did the same by putting all the classic Fire Emblem titles into a big bundle as Fire Emblem Collection or whether might they call it? Do you guys think the NES + SNES titles might be in Collection 1, the GBA + Tellius titles will be in Collection 2, and Collection 3 might put the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS titles. Or do you guys think the Nintendo DS titles should be bundled to Collection 2 and save the Nintendo 3DS games for a later time after Collection 2 releases? I know that Nintendo did add Nintendo DS games to the Wii U Virtual Console. And plus, they might put amiibo support with the Fire Emblem characters to do new challenges in the Fire Emblem Collection similar to the Mega Man amiibo on the Mega Man Legacy Collection. I'm not saying this will most likely happen to be on Nintendo Switch. I'm just wondering how would this work as a big Bundle Collection game? Just post your thoughts about which games might be included? I'm pretty sure the Collection 2 might have the GBA, Tellius, and NDS titles will most likely be released outside of Japan, but I possibly think the Collection 1 might be going to be Japan-only since the original NES and SNES titles weren't released outside of Japan. (I don't know if they can get Treehouse, 8-4, or another localization team to do the entire text from The Binding Blade and New Mystery of the Emblem if Intelligence System puts those two in Collection 2 since those were the only non NES and SNES titles that weren't released outside of Japan)
  3. Hello Guys, If you want FE gba style portraits for your hacks I can help you with them. Just submit your requests here and I will make the portraits for you. Not to brag about it but I'm pretty good at making portraits. If you guys want me to show you my work, I can post some of my portraits here. I'm doing all this because I like making portraits and I'm free these days so I'm getting pretty bored. Earlier, I was thinking of making my own hack but maybe I'll do it some other time. Here are some of the portraits that I made myself.
  4. Florina Fan's GBA Portraits

    So uh, in a sort of attempt to show off what I've learned in the past three or four months (spriting is still very new to me), but also because I'd really like to join a project of some kind, I'm posting some of my mugs on this forum. I have a lot of ideas, stories, stats, characters, etc., and due to my inability to understand hacking (it makes my head hurt profusely every time I try to get back into it), I can't really do anything with them. But that's beside the point. Here are some of my portrait splices. A few are older than others, and thus have a little less polish because have yet to come back to them (namely Taren and Tyken, the blonde boy and girl, respectively). My favorite one so far is Simon, the pale boy with the black hair. His hair actually originated from Lute, and I transformed it into a solid bowl cut His sister is Ramona (I hope you can tell which one that is just based on appearance). The others are Afrey (pink haired dude yes I am aware his color scheme is similar to Makalov's), Beaumont (green headband guy, Beaumont is a temporary name, I made this mug without really knowing what would come out of it), and Crystal (black haired girl with her eyes not showing) Anyway, totally open to constructive criticism And if anyone knows of any FE projects currently looking for portrait making, writing story or support content, etc., please let me know, I'm up for it
  5. Hello! I'm working on a FE GBA Project that I had to put on hold for a long time. Without getting off topic I am requesting some or will commission (references needed) unique FE GBA character portraits in the FE8 format. Normally I would sprite myself but I lack the ability for this job. I need some skeleton bros. Yep. Full on monster MUGS/portraits. Mainly as of now I only need three particular characters sprited as follows. Skeleton Skeleton Archer Skeleton Berserker I have some ideas in mind but would love to see what you guys can come up with. I should mention blinking frames are not required since skeletons don't have eyes; however, speaking frames can be a simple as just the jaw opening can closing. This is also not required but welcome to try or come up with something of your own. The mini/chibi is also not required. If you wish to discuss payment privately we can chat through PMs.
  6. Alternative to FEditor

    I’ve been trying to download FEditor Adv. but I can’t get it to download. Are there any alternatives to FEditor?
  7. Any advice on finding safe GBA ROMs?

    Noob question here. Does anyone have advice/tips on how to make sure Whatever Rom I'm downloading is safe? (Virus/malware free) Thanks!
  8. Hi guys, I'm having a Gameboy Advance emulator on my tablet, and I want to try some good romhacks. So far 2 of them have captured my Eyes. Requiem looks interesting, but I find the early chapters very challenging. Looks like something I should play when I find Hard Modes boring. Void's Blitzarre Adventure looks like a new FE experience with the mechanics, lack of supports and poor characters and storytelling (which even the game admits). So far I'm having fun with this one. Any fun hacks out there without lunatic difficulty that I should give a try?
  9. 1-2 range sword idea

    Yellow. Was working on homework while listening to nightcore, and The Legend of Link comes up, so I start jamming out of course, why not, right. Then it came to me. Axes and Lances have 1-2 range weapons that make sense physically, somewhat. Swords don't, though they tried in Radiant Dawn and Fates. I don't know the general consensus on what people thought of the 1-2 range swords in those games, but eh. SO why not have boomerangs as the 1-2 range weapons for swords? Thoughts?
  10. Fates Custom battle animations

    I've always loved the GBA battle animations, and I recently got into making my own. This is my attempt at making Fates' Royal families, Someones probably done this better before but I thought I'd take a crack at it. I've completed the 4 Nohrian siblings and almost all of the Hoshidians except for Ryoma due to his weird faceplate. First I did Everyone's favorite cinnamon roll; Elise! Heal Animation: I had some trouble with the hair at first simply because of how bizarre her pigtails are, I ended up using a modified version of Rebecca. Next on the list was; Leo Basic Anima Attack: Anima Crit: I'm thinking about trying to make a sword animation for him, I definitely want to give him a special Brynhildr animation. The Most difficult thing about making Leo was that I couldn't find Male battle animations only sheets, so I just took Selena's battle animations and copy/pasted Ewan's hair onto her Skipping a sibling I actually did Xander next, due to Camilla's... unique character design. Basic Sword Attack: Sword Crit: It was fun to make a paladin without a helmet, it always seemed weird to me that Seth has a helmet when fighting but not in his portrait. I'd also like to come back to Xander to give him a fancy ranged attack when using Siegfried. Next we have Camilla: Basic Lance attack: Lance Crit: Sorry if anyones disappointed by a serious lack of something (she's not using an axe.) But i'm still learning and I don't think a more accurate design is something I can do, I took the face and hair of a pegasus night and changed it up a bit to fit a Wyvern lord. Moving on to the Hoshidians My first is; Hinoka: Basic lance attack: Lance Crit: Hinoka was a fairly easy color swap. Sakura: She was probably the quickest and easiest. And last one (for now) Takumi: With Takumi I decided to have separate animations for when he has his Yumi equipped vs other bows Regular Bow Attack: Bow Crit: The hardest part with Takumi was his pineapple hair I ended up using his actual map sprite from fates to give me a better idea. Fujin Yumi Attack: Fujin Yumi Crit: When he's using the Fujin Yumi I changed it so his bow is gold, the bowstring only appears when he's firing and has a cool "disintegrate" affect to it. In his crit the symbol is meant to be the Japanese word for storm, which is part of the names of the Japanese gods takumi and ryoma are based off of (Fujin of wind, and Raijin of thunder/lightning) I'm unsure if it really fits though, I'm considering making similar ones for the other princes, any ideas for those would be great! Any constructive critisism would be super awesome as i'm pretty new to animating as well as this forum so if you have any tips send them my way. I'm gonna go do more animating Thanks for reading all this stuffXD These animations were modified using a free internet software I found called piskelapp you don't have to download anything except whatever animations your changing. If you want to use these for something feel free! Please Credit me if possible (and send me a link please!)
  11. Hi there, I am new to this community so I hope this is not a stupid question and that this is the right place to ask it. Fire Emblem GBA is my all time FE favourite and I recently picked it up again. I downloaded the ROM and play it on an emulating software called OpenEmu on my Macbook. My issue is, that I crave the challenge of Hector Hard Mode and I don't want to go through the numbing boredom of having to play Lyn, Eliwood AND Hector Normal Mode just to play HHM. I have done a little bit of research to try and download a save file but I have not been successful. Mainly because all files available have a file extension of ".sps" or something else but not the file extension ".sav", which is what the save file in my emulator folder ends with. I sincerely hope someone can help me with this, from what I've read this community is quite eager to help. Again, I hope this is not a stupid question. Sincerely, OXCallidus
  12. So, If you don't know what FE Recolor is,1) Why are you here, and 2) It is a program made by BwdYeti. (Link Right here) It's a very cool program that lets you recolor sprites from the GBA era of Fire Emblem. However, it is missing a lot of sprites, and while the Pirate one is easy to find, the rest, like the FE6 exclusive Sprites and ESPECIALLY the monsters from FE8, are really hard to find, to the point where through all my digging, I could only scrape up a tutorial on how to make sprites compatible. So I made pretty much all the sprites I could, and they're all here: Missing Sprites Here, Ta Daaaaaa These include all the Monster sprites, Most, if not all FE6 Exclusive Sprites, and some missing sprites from FE7. I also did some work on some already existing Sprites, so that it shows more versions that use it's palette. For Example, the Female Druid sprite uses the same Palette as the Male Druid, however the original FE Recolor Sprite image only showed the male, so I put in the female. I marked the ones I worked on under revised so that you don't have to change anything, its just so that you can see it for an example. Directions Step 1: Extract all to a safe Location where it wont cause any hassle for you Step 2: Go into Missing Sprites>Sprites and Copy all the Pictures there into FE Recolor>sprites>battle_sprites Step 3: Go into Missing Sprites>Data and Copy all the .dat files into FE Recolor>data>sprites, This makes it so that you don't have to manually re position all the Palette indexes. For the Revised Sprites: Same steps as 2 and 3 except be sure to delete/move the previous .png and .dat files before adding them. UPDATE I've added The FE7 Female Theif Sprite, It could be the FE6 Sprite, but It was just easier to make an all new one. Notes So I have tested all the sprites I could with BS Palette assembler, however, I could not test the Monster sprites, Zephiel's sprite, or the Manakete-transformed sprites. Please tell me if they don't work too well in-game and please provide screenshots. Also make sure its correct on your end. Also, If I missed any sprites, please tell me, as I'll make it and add it on. Thank you in advance! And I hope I was of help. FE Recolor Missing Sprites.zip
  13. My Second Batch Of Sprites

    So I took the feedback from my last post and took the time to make a second group of sprites Sprite 1 Sprite 2 Sprite 3 Sprite 4 All feedback is good feedback, thanks in advance.
  14. Tierlists can be a really controversial thing, but I just felt like sharing my opinion on this game's ranking and discussing it. I'll be assuming that Seth is not being (ab)used and grinding is not allowed. Tier Explanations: The names inside the () indicates the Road Taken by the player. The Units are ranked within the seperate tiers... kind of. Lord Tier: Eirika (Eirika) Ephraim (Ephraim) Seth Tier: Seth S-Tier: Franz Vanessa Tethys Saleh (Eirika) A-Tier: Arthur Moulder Gerik Cormag (Ephraim) Tana Kyle Saleh (Ephraim) Forde B-Tier: Garcia Innes (Eirika) Ephraim (Eirika) Duessel (Ephraim) Lute Cormag (Eirika) C-Tier: Eirika (Ephraim) Innes (Ephraim) Joshua Natasha Gillaim Colm Duessel (Eirika) DozlaMyrrh Ross D-Tier: Knoll L'Arachell Rennac Neimi E-Tier: Ewan Marisa Amelia Reasoning:
  15. So, I've made my second custom gba mugshot, but I don't really like the way the armor looks. Anyone got any tips? Feel free to express your opinion, I'll only hate you slightly.
  16. I'm going into chapter 14 Erika's route My Franz: LVL: 20 STR:15 SKL:9 SPD:13 LCK:8 DEF:10 RES:6 I was thinking of going great knight but i'm not sure My Amelia: Cavailer LVL:11 STR:10 SKL:16 SPD:14 LCK:16 DEF:8 RES:8 I'm not promoting her just yet, as i'm waiting for her to get to level 20, but just wanted to know what to promote her into beforehand, and I was leaning more towards the paladin class
  17. So I recently made these sprites and I just wanted some feedback on them to see how good or not so good they are. Image 1 Image 2 Image 3 Thanks all feedback is appreciated.
  18. Mecha's Sprite Hub

    Hey guys :) it has been a long (emphasis on the long) time since I've done any spriting in the FE Style, so here I am posting all the content I'm making and I would love to see the feedback. Izuku Midoriya (Alias: Deku | Class: Fighter) Naruto Uzumaki (Class: Jonin (Similar to a Mercenary) > Class: Hokage (Similar to a Hero/Promoted Lord) Next: Sasuke Uchiha (Class: Rogue (Similar to a Myrmidon) > Class: Wanderer (Similar to a Swordmaster/Promoted Lord)
  19. Golgotha of the hills sprite(s)

    I always loved the battle sprites in the old GBA FE so I thought I'd try making my own, I haven't made any "new" ones yet but for my first; Edit: I think I screwed up with the links is it making you guys download them? cause thats not supposed to happen (sorry new to this forum) I started with modifying the female sage basic battle animation to remove the cape: FE Female Sage animation without a cape.-20170807-142956.piskel And then I did my best to make it look like princess zelda from legend of zelda, FE Female Sage Princess Zelda-20170807-142640.piskel I'm sure someone has done this before but I thought i'd try it. Any constructive criticism would be awesome! Thanks!
  20. FE GBA Randomizer Improvements

    I've recently started tweaking the GBA Fire emblem randomizer (https://github.com/lushen124/Universal-GBA-FE-Randomizer-Windows/releases/tag/v1.1.0) to try and fix some of the common issues that occur for me such as: Heavily lopsided growths Weird weapons (poison weapons etc) etc Wanted to know if there was any interest in these changes and if so, I can make them public. Also if anyone has any ideas, I can try and fix those too!
  21. Hello everyone! I have a question about save files and emulation and any help or insight would be very appreciated! Thanks in advance :) I'm doing an Ironman playthrough of Sacred Stones hard mode (playlist here if you're interested: With a suspended mission saved, I can't practice on this file or cartridge now because my understanding of the save system is that once you start another instance of a chapter or save file, you lose any suspended data. And I definitely want to practice the coming chapters for the next session, so there won't be a bloodbath haha. The obvious solution is for us to just meet up again, finish this chapter, and open up the cartridge again so I can practice for next month, but this got be thinking... Is there a way to create save files for an emulator of the GBA fire emblem with specified character stats? I've heard of something like this for Pokemon games, and wondered if it is possible or already exists for FE. Thanks for being my favorite community! -Vaughn
  22. FE7 Fallen Text editing

    This is my first post here on Serenes, and I might have just missed something obvious, so I apologize if this post is a needless one. I've been learning how to do a hack for a little while now, and I wanted to figure out how edit what happens with the Fallen Text loaders. From what I understand it checks the event IDs for specific dead characters and runs an event that shows a conversation and frees up that event ID. It doesn't look particularly difficult to edit, but it seems really time consuming. Has anyone made a more efficient way to do it?
  23. Randomizing question

    Hey folks! I've been quite busy with my new job and haven't been able to work much on rom-hacking or my little merc-dude. I have been, however, been able to make nifty little fun hacks with a few wacky changes to the games balance and found that randomizing these is actually really fun! (turning the slim sword and lance into devil weapons for an example. Have fun pegasus knight Lyn that only spawned with a slim lance!) The only thing that's been bothering me is fe7's lack of female classes and a male healer. Te lack of male healer doesn't bother me much, since I still get plenty of variety in my male units, but the women have very little variety, especially in the early game! They can only be Archers, Lyn lords, Peg knights and mages for offensive classes and clerics, troubadours and dancers for support classes. That's pretty shitty for me since they almost always fill the same role as a dude when in offense. It gets a little better for pre-promotes, since they also get swordmaster, wyvern lord and paladin but I find it silly that I can't randomize it so they can also have myrmidon, cavalier and wyvern rider. At least that'd allow me to edit those classes into something else that I might want more. As of right now, there's little variety in female classes in fe7 and fe8 isn't THAT much better either, especially because of the silly generic palettes (plus, I just like playing fe7 more.) and it's not like I can edit many of the classes into something different because there's not many of them to start with. What bothers me most is how many unused classes are in the game's code as well. (fem merc, myrm, knight, cav, shaman, and their promotions) So I got to thinking. "If I could randomize this into including unused classes that aren't in the (I'm guessing) original "randomization table", would I need to alter something in the rom using nightmare, make my own randomizer that includes these classes, or both?" Also, I'm using this randomizer: https://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?/topic/55809-universal-gba-fe-randomizer-v10/ Cheers in advance for any help folks! Update on the animation coming this next weekend!
  24. HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!! sorry I would love so much if anyone could provide me with a randomized ROM of FE 6, 7 or 8... but is HAS to be a .gba file as the only GBA emulator I will use is gba4ios on my iPad. If any one could do this i'd be ever in your debt. I won't be licking any toes though ;)
  25. FE Hacks on an Ipad?

    I'm probably not going to get a computer for a while, and since I got GBA4IOS to work, I want to know how I can play GBA hacks in it. Preferably FE8 hacks. Most downloads have to be patched onto a normal file and I'm not sure how to do that.
