Story: After Nils passed through the Dragon’s Gate, he was put on trial by Dragon society for two things. Opening and passing through the Dragon’s Gate, and for not returning with their Oracle (I ship ElixNin shut it). After explaining himself, Nils is set free and things return to normal for a while. However the seeds of curiosity, hate and fear have been placed into the dragons’ hearts. Enough for them to open the gate again, and venture out into an abandoned island. Set 15 years after Roy defeated Zephiel and Idoun, Bern has since become a peaceful country under Queen Guinevere’s rule. However new challenges await the country, one being Zen, the prince of Bern and Guinevere’s son and next in line for the throne.

The Plot follows an initial tutorial following Zen, the first lord of the game, as a means to show new features, eventually leading to Roy making a trip to Dread Isle with his dying father, and him joining both Zen and Lilina for the Second Scouring.

Can you define "medium range"? Also, any idea how you're gonna implement the third promotions?

Dragons come through gate and war ensues? Could use a bit more, well, story, sorry.

are you planning on hacking a fe rom or gonna work with something like fexp

because if you are gonna do it with rom hacking, the following will require asm to make them work

and even then it may not be possible

You DO have ASM knowledge? Right? RIGHT?

If a long range weapon such as Ballista has a rang of 3-10, I would imagine a med-range weapon have a range of 2-5.

Still writing it, and I just wanted to leave a cliffnotes version here.

I am prepared to make sacrifices, or ill have to figure something else out to replace the missing feature.

You DO have ASM knowledge? Right? RIGHT?

I've done a few minor hacks myself, mainly portrait insertion. Other than that I'm figuring it out as I go.

well

good luck

Thanks.

ASM is a whole different beast from portrait insertion. Good luck. You'll need it.

I'm going to be quite honest: you really need to learn to do some more hacking before you even think about ASM hacking.

If you were more experienced in romhacking, you'd know that in GBA FE, the game bugs out with range displaying on the map anywhere from 4-9 in the range mark. 1-3 range is changable as needed, but 4 to 9 don't display on the map and are slightly buggy, even the best hackers haven't been able/haven't tried to fix this yet.

Yeah, no

you should really wait until you've done 10x more planning/preparations than you have done now before you even post your project, IMO :P

this is why SF needs two forums for hacks: one for ideas like these, and others for hacks that actually have patches out and/or are complete or near-completion

it's not even experience, it's just a matter of "reading the topics that pop-up" and talking to people and whatnot, you don't have to have tried yourself to know

yay for being a typical internet asshole... actually, my guilty conscience right now is burning up

allow me to intercede

aside from how much i completely despise your story, i think we need a quick reality check.

· Cannons (Moveable mounts that has med range and does shrapnel damage to nearby spaces) i can't even begin to think of how to code this

· Older versions of Characters from FE6 and FE7 well maybe you can sprite decently i don't know

· Equippable Mounts for Lords might be a decent coding exercise... i remember my first attempt at this left me with four half-finished code files that i lost due to lack of interest

· Bards/Dancers can use rings to temporarily buff units okay

· Playable Fire, Ice, Light, and Dark Dragons kk

· Merging Items to fix and conserve space ala shadow dragon why would you possibly need to do this

· Third Tiers and Mastery Skills for third tiers(Though skills and classes may be different, aswell as some new classes; Berserker promotes)…maybe? third tiers shouldn't be too difficult to implement aside from like, stats. Skills? go die

· Manaketes have infinite uses of Dragonstones, but have stat nerfs and a level 30 cap whatever

· Bonus EXP ala PoR/RD well at least you can steal existing damage routines for the splash damage shit, this would require implementing a whole new fucking interface

in case you think i'm kidding when i tell you that asm is stupidly difficult:

You can insert a portrait in roughly fifteen seconds with one button click.

lol, you kinda have to learn to hack before you set goals. Your goals are like me saying I plan to find a cure for cancer despite barely understanding how it works.
