Randomizing question

Recommended Posts

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!

If you want to add new classes, you'd need to add them in-game (can't really in fe8, since it's already full) and presumably edit the randomizer.

However, if you don't care that the class' gender matches the character's, you could just select the 'Cross Gender' option on the randomizer.

I figured, I guess its tough luck I'm completely incapable of editing the randomizer. Thanks anyway bruh.

I could try to modify it to include those unused classes if the source is somewhere, shouldn't be hard.

9 days late because of work. Whoops! Unfortunately I'm not sure that the source for the randomizer is available anywhere, even in the main page. Thanks for the offer though my dude!

Oh, well shit. Well in that case if you could do that it'd be amazing! I guess I'd have to provide you with a rom with the new class table so if you're up for it warn me and I'll have that bish ready in like 2-3 days.
