Fire Emblem - The Sacred Overhaul

Recommended Posts

I've been working on this poorly made mini-hack for a good 2 months now (mainly because my charger died in Feburary). I hope you'll enjoy it.

Some changed include changing what class certain characters are but are not limited to, changing the level cap to 30, changing all the classes stat caps to compliment this change, and changing certain pieces of dialogue.

A changelog might be beneficial, it'd be nice to know what we're actually downloading.

I won't try because for all I know it could be one of those bad difficulty inflation hacks. That's why you need a changelog.

You can't ferry Garcia to Ross anymore because Garcia is a Warrior now. Also you can promote Franz into either a Wyvern Rider or a Cavalier once he reaches level 10 and he uses a Knight's Crest.

It's not just random class changes, some other things were changed as well. Like all of the Sacred Twins weapons and Myrrh's Dragonstone now all have infinite uses. Because it doesn't make sense for things like that to break.

oh, yes, because that's what made all ten thousand other fe8 nightmare hacks boring to play, it was the fact that the holy weapons were breakable!

Because I felt like it? It's my hack, I do what I want. XD

I could make a hack about Hitler winning world war 2 and you playing as Nazis killing innocent people because I wanted to. It doesn't mean it's a good idea. And it certainly doesn't mean people will want to play it.

Truth be told, nobody's going to even get that far without any sort of information. A "download this, it's a surprise" gives people no incentive to play.

I'll admit, it's not an art house masterpiece. But it's something I put a lot of time into. Also there's an awkward graphical issue with skill increases. But it's purely visual and effects nothing else.

Look, the thing is, this is your first hack. Truthfully, if Bwdyeti or Arch put out a surprise hack, they could be 100% sure people would play it,because they have a track record of good hacks/fangames that people have loved playing. If Arch puts out a mystery hack, at least a hundred people will play it to see what's cool. People won't question him because he knows what he's doing. You however, are completely unknown. Nothing you've said so far sounds interesting. It sounds like 10 minutes in nightmare to be honest. You have to have a good track record of fun hacks or ragefests or whatever to keep people interested. Just put some info out there, build a good hacking repertoire, and eventually if you get some fans, you can do a mystery hack like this.

Good advice, but I'm gonna be honest with you, it's not my first hack, the first rom hack I ever made was of Pokemon Crystal and all it did was change what the starters were. And that one was so poorly done that there was somehow a glitch where the rival used the wrong team at some points in the game.

At this point in my life, I made 4 unreleased reskin hacks, three FEXP projects, I'm working on two FEXNA side projects, and then there's my super successful FE7CM hack that lots of people like. I could pull off a mystery hack if I wanted to (And to some extent I like to keep mystery in updates for my projects since I think people should experience things fresh) but I don't think you can do it with one random (self-admitted) bad pokemon hack and nothing else. Just update the OP with screenshots and more detailed information bro. There have been probably a hundred 'revamped' FE8 hacks, yours is nothing special as far as most people care, so you need to get their hopes and interest built up. Just take my advice, it wasn't that long ago I could have been in a position similar to yours. Give people something to hook them, build a fanbase, THEN try something like this.

...Why did you change Bone to a Pirate? He can't get off his mountain as a Pirate.

I think someone already did.
