@  acceptance : (12 July 2018 - 05:57 PM) As far as we know, anyway.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 July 2018 - 08:29 PM) ooo, Felover's alive, lol
@  xcrash1998 : (09 July 2018 - 11:33 AM) He will be remembered, our brother in arms.
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:35 PM) BUM- BUM- BUUUUUM
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:34 PM) And in the end; xcrash1998 never did find out what was up with Felover3. In fact, no one ever heard from either of them again.
@  xcrash1998 : (03 July 2018 - 12:41 PM) Hey man, whats up
@  Felover3 : (03 July 2018 - 01:56 AM) Been a while
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 11:12 PM) In retrospect it's pretty obvious, what with the Johnny Bosch and sword revving, but according to my doctor when I was 12 i have ADD.
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 10:39 PM) Holy shit it just clicked in my head that the guy in the DMC5 trailer is Nero. Neato!
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) Granted, that makes it sound like I have no interest in Fates (and I really don't, outside of a couple characters)...so I guess my hopes are above "fairly negligible" right now.
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) I think I've got higher hopes going in than for Fates. Fates, as soon as the trailer hit, made it pretty clear it was going to eschew an interesting "both sides have points" story for a fairly clear cut "good guys" story and "villain" narrative.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)

Hey, so I downloaded a fresh fire emblem shadow dragon rom and decompressed it using dslazy. Then i went in using a lz77 decompressy fella and decompressed a copy of the database file as well as a bmap file. I made my changes in nightmare using the correct modules to my knowledge (opened database file and edited item data and class data; opened bmap file and edited character spawning data). I saved the changes and recompressed the database and bmap files, copied the decompressed rom, replaced the database file with my edited version and same for the bmap file, recompressed the rom and launched. The changes were not made on either the database edits or the bmap edits. Am I missing a step? I'm very new to fire emblem rom hacking so sorry if this is confusing or dumb.

I didn't really have a specific tutorial. I just kind of pieced together how to do it from the readme files and random troubleshooting threads, but evidently it wasnt correct.

I really have no clue about FEDS hacking but I will have a try at this.
But why not hack GBAFE imstead it is a lot easier and lrovides a lot more documentation,
a books worth of documentation.

 

EDIT:

Irovides, what? it has. that was the thing I wanted to type, Irovides. Just how do I do this.

well im sure i can pick up on gba hacking, i just like the ds titles more. i really only wanna make minor balance changes so the plot isn't so linear and so it can have more replayability.

So a rebalance hack, yeah that makes more sense.

 

I think blazer could know how to do that if he didn't forget everything.

 

I am sorry, I think my last comment was little offensive towards your goal.

 

Well anyway you can always ask a quick question in the shout box if you need to.
