@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

Posted 19 July 2016 - 07:49 PM

So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in participating in a streamed Fire Emblem marathon for FE1-12? Done through emulators, savestates are allowed, basically just want to go through every game and beat it somewhat quickly. But you don't have to be amazing at the game or a speedrunner or anything, basically just do what you can. You're free to even go through the story scenes too if you're so inclined, basically anything goes tbh.

 

I think we could give each player 5 days to beat their game max, but the faster the better: preferably in < 3 days. Preferably play on easier modes to limit restarts and such. We'll do them in order, so someone beats FE1 first, then FE2, then FE3, etc.

 

You have to be able to stream to twitch or something, we could have a dedicated channel for this, and just let people stream to that. Then we'll advertise a bit and people can just hop in whatever. I think the end-goal should be to beat all the 12 FE games by the end of say September. If we start like mid-August this gives us a month and a half. Just making stuff up but yeah, it won't be a true marathon because everyone has lives and all that.

 

So, anyone interested? if so, which games would you be interested in doing? We could possibly have people "take over" by sharing the savestates for certain games, that way another play can start playing where someone else left off, e.g. have one person to do Lyn's mode and another Eliwood's mode, or have one person do up to the route split in FE8, have someone else do the path up until they meet back up, and a 3rd person do up until the end of the game.

 

Let me know your thoughts, if you'd like to sign up for something (and if so how much you'd be willing to play, if you're comfortable streaming or need help, etc.), overall I think it'd be a cool idea! (We should try to keep it to FES people/cool people though, this is just for fun and all~)

 

FE1: Voffie

FE2: Cero

FE3: Cero (if no one else picks up)

FE4: Zac (looking for 2nd half help)
FE5:

FE6: DH_Ninja

FE7: Blazer (Lyn's Mode), Voffie (Eliwood Mode)

FE8: Blue Leafeon (Recorded)

FE9: Seraph

FE10: N7 Commander John

FE11: N7 Commander John (if no one else wants it)
FE12: Blazer (prefers help)

I'd be down to help. I guess. No idea what games I would go over. Not FE4 or FE5. Beating them once is enough.

This seems like a good idea. I don't have any way of streaming and I doubt my internet could take it anyway, or I'd DEFINITELY do FE8.

yay. this helps. a lot

I thought about it and a screenshot LP would be ok. See DH's screenshot LP of The Last Promise or google one for an example. however, it is a lot of work (moreso than just playing the game since you have to take screenshots and add comments, as opposed to just doing the playing and commentary at once) and you'd have to do it very quickly, but it's possible, and fine with me. :) you could start in advance and then once we get to FE8, post several times a day over the course of 2-3 days with the completed product. idk. wouldn't have to be very thorough.

 

up to you, just an idea, since more participants = cooler

Picture LP's are a lot of work and take up a lot of disc space lol.

 

If I can upload video sessions instead of just streaming it, I'm in. Being part of a project like this will give me more motivation to finish what I started. I'm only going to go Ephraim's route, however, because I have it more or less memorized and cannot play Eirika's due to having only ever beat it like, thrice. (The main issue is the part after Eirika and Ephraim reunite; enemy and player unit placements are mixed up so my strategies are thrown off completely.) So somebody else will have to do Eirika's route. I can put all the videos in a playlist so that they automatically move to the next one, making it kind of like a stream?

I think that'd be ok, but you'd have to have it done soonish and then like, make them private, and then when it's time unleash them all over the course of 2 days or so. actually, a better idea would be to use YouTube's schedule feature and just schedule them for one hour after another, once we figure out when the FE8 run will roughly take place.

 

reason why is when I advertise it I want to be like

 

"Next up, Blue Leafeon is doing a run of FE8 on YouTube! He'll have new videos up all day every hour until he beats the game, so check it out at (insert link)!"

 

Hopefully that makes sense

 

Also, commentary is optional, I forget how much LPing experience you have or the like but if you're not confident in your commentary or your recording equipment or whatever feel free to pass. (Hopefully I'm not offending you here.)

 

We should have commentary for the streams though IMO~

The problem is more or less my equipment and the lack of alone-time to record myself without interruptions.

 

But yes, that sounds good. I'll get to recording as soon as I beat Revelation. (I think I'm at the final chapter now.)

Count me in, happy to help with whatever games (1 and 2 I have the least knowledge of though)

 

I'd gladly do Fe9 or 10. Just need to redownload Dolphin and stuff because my copies of the games are in another country at the moment.

yuuusz, great. I'll sign ya'll up/update the first post.

 

I'm kind of willing to do 9 or 10 (whichever Seraph doesn't do) in which case that would just leave FE3-5 and 11. However I'll gladly give up 9 or 10 if someone else would rather do one of them.

I don't know when this is going to be starting, but Blazer did mention to me that he wanted to have a central twitch channel that we could all stream to make it easier for the audience to watch. Twitch has a hosting feature that will let everyone use their own personal channel still, while letting everyone stream onto the central channel that he wishes to have.

 

This is the hosting feature that I am talking about.
