  1. So I finished Thracia 776 recently and just started playing Tearring Saga and a trend that the games share is that they will let take an overlook of the map and the enemies, but they will not tell you where your starting position is. When first playing Thracia I thought it was a technical limitation, but as I played more I realized it was a deliberate choice. For those who don't know some chapters in the game will have your units positioned in certain ways to create map scenarios that you have to overcome. A slight spoiler warning ahead and an example is at the end of a certain chapter Leif sends out half of his army to spearhead an attack with him and the rest of his forces following behind after they get some rest. The next chapter begins with you choosing your units and managing their equipment and then the chapter starts with Leif and half his men at the top of the map, the other half in the middle and a huge and expanding enemy force at the bottom. You'll then notice this is an escape chapter (with Leif starting on the escape point) meant to simulate that the advance troops are running back to base away from the enemy. This seems like an easy win if it wasn't for the fact that you didn't know where your units would spawn. The units running from the army of mounted units could all be infantry with you mounts all up at the top. Still too easy? There are thieves and endlessly spawning brigands attacking houses all along the sides of the map out of the way of the escape point making it harder to get back to base. On top of that there is a recruitable unit among the enemy that makes it necessary to engage them if you want the new unit and you'll want them since they come with a leadership star and due to events in the story you could be down one and if you decided not to recruit a certain someone the map before you have technically lost two. I'm bringing this up because I found it interesting that they were able to make such an interesting map premise that works really well in the narrative and put real tactical challenges along the way aside from just really strong enemies. Most of the enemies chasing you down aren't that strong, but the number of them will eventually whittle down you forces unless your careful. At the same time I also found it really annoying to have no idea how my units would spawn or how to optimize my strategy without restarting. Tearring Saga does the same thing so and since Fire Emblem hasn't done this since I'm guessing this is a Kaga thing, hence the name of the topic. So my question is what do you guys think of these types of chapter starts? Do you think they would be fun to implement in another game (I don't know if Berwick or Vestaria Saga have them)? Maybe some suggestions on how to better implement them in a more fair way?
  2. Update Log V 1.03 (CURRENT): This English version of the patch was updated to fix Fergus's promotion. The Japanese version is unchanged, as this glitch was only present in the English version. V 1.02: Fixed graphical glitch that occurred when viewing Alva's PRF in chapter 10 V 1.01: Fixed Forseti to be magical instead of physical --- 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 incorporates 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 Menu and 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. The English version should be applied to a clean Japanese ROM, since it already incorporates the translation. 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. The spreadsheet also includes unit stats. 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. Thracia 776 Support Branch

    I started playing FE5 for the first time, and I knew that units supported each other when they were nearby, and it bothered me that I couldn't find a diagram that shows what characters supported who. And I would have to look up each individual character to find out supports. So I just said screw it and made this for everyone's convenience. Might do it for other games like FE3 too.
  4. I hate Thracia 776!

    I tried to enjoy this game, but chapter 22 was the last straw, the enemies literally have more hit and avoid rates than your army! and if you don't have enough door keys, beating the final chapter is IMPOSSIBLE!, I don't understand why aren't everyone throwing shit at this game, it is so unfair and poorly designed, and still many people think that it is a good FE game and it has good difficulty, I don't think I will ever beat this game...
  5. So um, I was trying to patch a Thracia ROM earlier, and I had tested it beforehand to make sure it played fine and didn't have any problems. After I had done that, I applied the patch (It was the NP patch on an NP ROM) after the opening story scroll ends I just get a black screen and the title doesn't load. Does anyone know why this is occuring?
  6. Hey everyone, I’m relatively new to the Forest but have been using it as a resource for years. I’ve played every FE except Thracia 776(and like the first and third game and OG Gaiden). Now that I have the game translated I was about to start but I’ve heard this game is really hard so any advice for a first time player? Please and Thank You!
  7. I'm planning on hosting a dance panel at Metrocon (Tampa FL). I have a lot of music already, but some of these songs loop and the actual part that I can use is between 30 seconds and 1 minute. Also I can't use every song that comes my way since music for games isn't always something that can be used for dance. I want to try to use a song from every Fire Emblem, so if anyone knows of songs that I can use that are between 2 and 5 minutes with no looping and not from Blazing Sword, Awakening, Fates, or Echoes (I already have songs from those games I can use) I'd really appreciate the extra ears looking for this.
  8. Emblem Chronicle VII

    Hiya! I'm Zane. You might know me from my FE5 Menu Translation. Although work on the menu translation has essentially ceased, I've been steadily working on a project that uses it as its base. So, I'd like to introduce Emblem Chronicle VII (henceforth called ECVII): ECVII is essentially a demake of FE7 within FE5. It's a proof-of-concept, learning tool, and showcase all in one. I'm currently planning on making all of Hector mode, skipping Lyn mode. This release has two chapters. This isn't 1-to-1, however. I'm not looking to write Elibe fanfiction, but this won't ever be a cut/paste job from 7 to 5. Classes, enemies, maps, and dialogue, along with some other things, will likely be changed. Unit stats, skills, and classes are not final. This is partially due to the WIP nature of the hack, but is mainly just me figuring out how to play with FE5. Have some screenshots: Here's a patch: ECVII [12-1-17] This is for an unheadered, unedited FE5 ROM. I'm not responsible for anything past chapter 2. Please don't ask me why it's vanilla. I'd also like to reiterate that essentially none of this is final--if you have a suggestion, I'd like to hear it. If you've got a complaint about stats/levels, be thankful that they'll be getting smoothed out later. I'd like to thank everyone involved--I certainly couldn't do it without you: There are plenty of bugs in the current build. If you find one not listed here, let me know. I'll probably be releasing more tools, doc, and whatnot sometime soon. More info, plans, and screenshots are likely to be appended to this post shortly.
  9. FE5 Map Sprites

    This is a crosspost from FEU. While working on my FE5 project I had figured it'd be nice to rip the map sprites, because I can't find a unified sheet of them anywhere. Although the data is ripped using the class data table, there might be errors. If anything's odd about these, let me know. FE5 Map Sprites Here's an example: Each class gets its own sheet. Some sheets have some strange things going on, such as: Some mage classes have incorrect sprites, probably due to the correct sprites being set in character data Some mage classes have other mages in their battle sprites The High Priest and Priest have some strange things going on There's that weird Baron class More stuff, probably Unused sprites and stuff may be added later, but any sprites that aren't referenced are not included yet.
  10. Hello everyone! I'm new here so I'm not sure if a thread has been open about this. So I bought a new SNES Classic Edition from Gamestop, and have modded it to run a few extra games. One came to mind is both Genealogy of Holy War and Thracia 776. I looked online to see if it has ever been done before. So I did some research. since I do have the North American version of the SNES Classic, the emulator built-in will not be able to play PAL or Japanese games. But there's still a way to play Fire Emblem games for those that don't want to pay an import fee for a Super Famicom Mini Classic (even though the console still looks cooler than the lame NA look). So far, I'm stuggling trying to find a proper patched Genealogy of Holy War (w/Project Narga translation patch) and unable to play the game on the Classic. However, I was able to run Thracia 776 w/ the english patch (although an old patch) and was able to get a close enough real SNES experience to play the game. What you need to do this A SNES Classic Edition (either PAL or North America models) Hakchi mod tool for your desktop Retroarch w/cores Thracia 776 Rom w/English Patch I'll be updating this thread with more as I'm at work right now. Will post pictures, and if you're an owner of a SNES Classic and was able to add both Fire Emblem games, please contribute here. Here's a video demo https://youtu.be/NzfKzb7E1fA
  11. I've been worried for a while that my attitude toward Fire Emblem has been negative especially about how good it is relative to other SRPGs, and so on. Beyond this, I've noticed that Thracia seems to have a divisive reputation, especially in two new threads, "The most underrated Fire Emblem" and "The best and Worst Fire Emblem gameplaywise" . I'm in an odd position in this kind of debate. I think that the first four games are the worst in the series, with Genealogy the absolute worst. However, when I played Thracia 776 three years ago (in the same marathon as the other games) I was impressed with it to the point of placing it as the 4th best game in the series. A lot of people argue about how hard it is (as they also do with Genealogy). While I think that Genealogy is on the easy side relative to Conquest, the DS remakes, Radiant Dawn, and even the GBA games, I believe that Thracia is legitimately a hard game. A lot of people claim that it is only hard due to fake difficulty. Some of the chapters in this game unquestionably do have fake difficulty. However, less is said about how other parts of Thracia 776 are hard in the "conventional" way. There are a lot of nasty promoted units, even in early chapters, GBA-style throne bonuses, and because of Thracia's weapon distribution, you encounter enemy brave weapons before the half way point (4 bosses at various points before chapter 16). Because of stuff like this, the general difficulty of the game can readily be compared to Radiant Dawn or FE6 HM, even if the fog of war and status stave chapters did not exist. I'm playing on the infamous "bad" fan-translation. Given that this is 2017, this may be one of the last times anyone ever uses this translation. Be prepared. In keeping with my intention in starting the LP, I plan on playing the game without the paragon mode cheat or any glitches. I hope to highlight that Thracia, despite it's reputation, CAN be an accessible game, and in order to do that, I will be putting a special focus on how you can manage your growth rates, get ahead of the expected resource curve, and use skill scrolls to your advantage. I might even intentionally leave some units behind on the first escape chapter to demonstrate how you can mitigate the setback that the mechanic causes.
  12. I did another 0% growths warpless low turn count playthrough of FE5. The tactics are much improved from my previous run and it should be much easier to watch due to less wasted time. "0% growths" means I play on a ROM edited so characters do not gain stats on level-up (both character and scroll growths set to zero). I like playing 0% growths because it eliminates the randomness that growths cause and improves the game's balance by reducing player strength relative to the enemy; in a normal run, I find that characters become too powerful and diminish the need for tactical maneuvers. Also, movement stars are also not used when they activate. By "warpless" I mean that I do not use the warp staff (rescue staves and the self-targeting rewarp staff are permitted). I've done runs with the warp staff before and they're plenty of fun, but this warpless route involves a lot of varied and interesting tactics in chapters that the warp staff would trivialize. "Low turn count" means that I aim to complete chapters as quickly as possible. In Fire Emblem games, there are often boring and time-consuming tactics than lead to victory with little effort, but it is far more fun and entertaining to use complex tactics that lead to a faster completion. Furthermore, the game ranks you based upon the number of turns you take, so a lower turncount can be considered a better result. However, in some cases I will sacrifice speed for reliability. This is a segmented run but in the future I hope to complete a SS rank warpless ironman run; I think it is more fun to consider contingency plans and adapt tactics during a playthrough than it is to map out a singular path through the game and reset until the RNG rolls in your favour. My idea of a good tactic is as follows: if all goes well a very low turncount will be achieved, if some things go wrong a fairly low turncount will still be achieved, and in the case of extreme bad luck several turns may be lost but a game over would be avoided. However there are several chapters in this playthrough where this ideal is not achieved. One day I will improve upon this run so please suggest any improvements that come to mind. I do not attempt to recruit all characters in this playthrough. This run is played on normal mode (without increased exp gain), so EXP distribution must be considered. This does not affect turncounts. There are several chapters for which I don't have a really good plan and I could really use some suggestions. I probably won't redo this anytime soon but someday I will. Here is the youtube playlist:
  13. The Original Knockoffs

    So I've been looking at some of the characters from Thracia 776 and I've noticed some characters look oddly familiar. And looking at their designs, backgrounds, and personalities, there are quite a few parallels. So here we go. Creidne/Radney & Machyua Laylea & Lara Hermina & Karin Tristan & Carrion Linda & Miranda Bonus: Jeanne and Tanya have similar facial features and accessories. And Shannam is literally a Shannan impersonator.
  14. HELLOOOO Serenes Forest! Welcome to the Serenes Forest Smash & Gaming Discord Server's THIRD (3rd) FIRE EMBLEM TAGTEAM EVENT! Four tagteams this is not, neither is this only two. Five is right out. Following on the heels of our massive success with Blazing Sword, and our amazing randomized Binding Blade tag-team (Roy is so bad that when he promoted the game crashed irretrievably), we decided to move onto the most beloved Fire Emblem in the series, and @Jedi's personal favorite, Fire Emblem: Awankening. Unfortunately, we can't transfer save data for 3DS games very easily, so we agreed that it would be the best to the second best game in the series: Berwick Saga. Which of course is why we're not doing any such thing, and instead settled on Thracia 776, which half of us have never played before. We have a record-breaking NINE players signed up for this, which was almost going to be an issue until @Batter the Beast started talking shit about fruity cocktails and extolling the virtues of rum instead. Of course, I, a gentleman, could never stomach playing on the same tagteam as such a philistine, so I cast him out of the group entirely. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that @Terrador, @Lord Raven, @ίce, and @Carmine Sword were also entirely lacking in moral fiber, and they left along with him to form a team of degenerates. On the side of justice, sugar, and delicious mixed drinks, I, @Euklyd, am joined by @Jedi, @General Horace, and the leading man, @Refa. The rules are as follows: Screw over your own team as much as you like, but do try to actually finish the run. The other team is full of soulless heathens, and as such must be fucked over as best you can manage. To facilitate this, each team's players will be matched with chapters by the opposing team (details below). Don't fuck this up and break the ROM this time, you nerds. This is a serious competition, and as such should be taken completely seriously. No fun allowed. Each player can declare one (1) safe unit, which shall be safe from death at the hands of their teammates. You can only declare units that have already been recruited as safe. Chapter picking process: There are 33 chapters to select from. All gaidens are forced. Chapters 16A/16B and 17A/17B are drafted together; you don't get to choose which route the other team does. The selection order for each team is as follows: TEAM RUM: Carmine, Batter, Raven, Terrador, Ice TEAM COCKTAIL: Jedi, Refa, Horace, Euklyd The way this will work is that Carmine will pick a chapter for Jedi, then Batter for Refa, then Raven for Horace, then Terrador for Euklyd, then Ice for Jedi again, etc. etc., and vise versa for how Team Cocktail picks for Team Rum. LET THE ODDS MAY BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR disclaimer: i may or may not have written this post last night while drunk i blame jedi for everything EDIT: Refa points out that the scientific name for "team cocktail" is actually #TEAM SEXY BITCH, however we must be eSports about this and so will continue referring to ourselves as #TEAM COCKTAIL
  15. FE5 (Yuna Takanagi) Manga Translation

    Welcome to Fala Scans' work on the FE5 manga! This manga gets to around chapter nine character + event wise, give or take, with a lot of things excluded and replaced or simply left out due to the low volume count. These books are slightly short of 200 pages per book. Please enjoy! Edit: I do need to include the cover and stuff still. Forgot about that. As usual. Volume One: Chapter 0
  16. So, that's it. The other day I was asking help to start FE4( I finished, and loved it) and now I want it for FE5. First of all, what's the best translation for FE5? And where can I get it? I am asking this because I played FE4 and it wasn't project Naga...ended up with a untranslated ending and bad translated weapon names. Any tips for someone who just beat Geneology of the Holy war to get into this game? I have read a lot about it already, the inifinite range staffs are scaring me... Anyway, I have already beaten Radiant Dawn, wich is probably the most complex game of the series( and probably the second hardest, Thracia 776 considered the first one), so I am not too scared. Any tips to get into, what should I do, when should I save, what I should NEVER do, would be apreciated.
  17. I was curious to see some opinions of fire emblem 5. I never liked it due to the fact that some characters were almost unusable, and for me, the game is just boring. No character except for the main characters had any characterization, the map design was bad, (in my opinion) and the game was really unbalanced. I liked the crusader scrolls, and this game gets some credit for adding fog of war, but that's all I liked. So why do you like or dislike this game?
  18. Since there are three Fire Emblem games got remakes that are Shadow Dragon, New Mystery of the Emblem, and the upcoming Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. I think the next one that we might get a remake next is Genealogy of the Holy War and the next one after Genealogy of the Holy will be Thracia 776 since it's a mid equal to Genealogy of the Holy War, but since there is going to be a new upcoming Switch title that is going to be brand new story, do you guys think that Intelligence System will might make a Genealogy of the Holy War remake sometime after the upcoming Fire Emblem Switch title that gets released in 2018 or do you guys think it will might going to be later than that?
  19. I feel like you all have been waiting enough. If you happen to frequent FEU or you've been vigilant here on Serenes Forest, you might have seen some Thracia notes or screenshots. I'd like to give you all a taste of what I've been up to. Zane's Thracia 776 Menu Translation More information and a download link is provided here Patch is for an unheadered, unedited FE5 ROM. Please, as always, reply soon
  20. I'm just curious (and expecting to see a lot of FE4 votes...), the NES/SNES games were cool and interesting and had their own old-school charm that makes (most of them) them so easy to go back to (except FE1, that broken, broken mess). EDIT: I accidentally hit enter... Is there any way to edit polls? Help? ...this is embarrasing
  21. Notes on Thracia 776 Events

    This is a sort of crosspost from FEU. I've been interested in learning about Thracia 776 recently, so I've put together some notes and I figured that it'd be nice to share them. I'll continue to update the file with as much as I find. Thracia 776 Doc I was working on an entry for MAFC using what I've learned, but the amount of knowledge required outran the research I had done, so I ran out of time. Here's a screenshot of my progress, if you're interested: Info on inserting maps will come soon. I'm still transferring notes into the stackedit document, and certainly still researching things. Anyway, if you have anything to add, please let me know.
  22. Hello everyone! New LPer here, bringing you all the joy (and pain) of Thracia 776! Come see why I stole the numbers from this game for my stupid username! Part 1: And part 2:
  23. So how do you feel about the plot twist of Evyel's true identity? Personally I feel like it adds very little to her character and only really serves to cheapen the Barhara Massacre. I think Evyel would be a perfectly good character without any connection to Briggid. Though I do appreciate the irony of the pirate princess growing up to make it her mission in life to fight pirates.
  24. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXjyJdUVlG8 Xator Nova/Ronaldo Villanueva decided to talk about one of his favorite games, Thracia 776 in probably his most ambicious project nowadays. He wants to defend the position of Thracia as one of the best Strategical Games in the Story of the Videogames. Note: The video is in spanish (his native languaje), but has notes with english subtitules.
  25. Has anyone made a GBA remake of Thracia 776?

    I wanna play Thracia 776 without the reaaallllllllllly shitty translation... So, just curious if anyone made a GBA remake of it, like FE4 Gen 2?
