They now seem to appear more infrequently but in greater numbers.
The last one was a single one but aggressively spammed.
@  Idiot : (24 April 2018 - 07:55 AM) At least Bing and Google will never leave us. Lurker bots forever in our hearts.
@  kirant : (23 April 2018 - 06:52 PM) I'm kind of sad that I don't even have bots to ban anymore...

Using FE7 here, working with Nightmare 1 and FEditor.


I've been trying to modify the Mani Katti to do 1 - 2 range, and pretty much act as a magic sword.

I thought it would be simple enough, change the range to 0x12 and then go to the spell association editor.

The weapon itself works fine; it has the 1-2 range and doesn't act weird at all. Just like a normal sword. But when I use it at 2 range, the animation kind of plays (lyn puts up her sword and it flashes, just like if using a real magic sword), but instead of an actual spell being cast, she just kind of puts the blade down again. This occurs twice if she's doubling. The sword flashes rapidly (like if I was critting) when dealing a finishing blow on an enemy.


I've tried to associate different spells to the sword, yet none of them work. I've also tried changing the weapon type to anima and the Weapon ability 'weapon' to magic, but they both just made Lyn unable to use the sword at all. 


I'm using custom palette, if that matters at all?


Is the ''magic weapon'' just hard-coded into the game?

And if so, is there a way to make Lyn recieve a modified Light Brand instead of the Mani Katti at the end of Chapter 2?

To asign a spell to a weapon did you went to the spell association editor in the item folder ther is a drop down menu for which spell to asign, you can use anything.

and make sure to press enter and then ctrl + s before switching to another module


(what you described happened is when a character is useing a range 2 weapon without a spell animation. So just the animation playing but nothing happens, but the battle actualy happens like normal so back on the map the enemy will now have the reduced HP or dies if you did enough damage )


(actually if you gave the character a magic level he will always use his magic animation which can cause problems)


you need to enter 0x12 for the range to get range 1-2.


otherwise you don't need to change anything else.


If you want to change the weapon lyn gets at the end of chapter 2 you need to change the Mani Kattie itself in the item editor

(just use the slot of the many kattie and change everything up).


In case you want to change the text you will need FEditor.

for the weapon name the number and letters after the 0x is the slot you need to search for in the FEditor text editor

the same goes for the weapon description.

"The sword flashes rapidly (like if I was critting) when dealing a finishing blow on an enemy."
