@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:55 PM) tho personally I guess I'm not too afraid of responding to old messages anyway sometimes, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) to have discussions where people respond at their own convenience
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) forums could still be used but we'd have to make a bit of an effort I guess
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) I agree with Mage Girl/Cero/Elwood/Kirant lolol
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:15 AM) And yeah missing stuff on discord is easy depending on when most people are online
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:11 AM) I think there are just fewer people interested in taking part on forums since most information is already accesible trough the many means.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) Well, at the same time I also don't frequent most of the discord channels I'm a part of, though.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) I used to prefer forums but I've been spoiled by the "everything at the same hub" thing...
@  kirant : (06 January 2019 - 07:39 PM) I'm of pretty similar opinion...it's easy to miss a good discussion on Discord (which plays much more into a "stream of consciousness" feel).
@  Elwood : (04 January 2019 - 10:42 PM) I prefer forums because they keep everything more organized. With Discord you can have 3 conversations jumbled together and not know what anyone is talking about. It's also way easier to miss stuff.
@  Cero : (31 December 2018 - 07:23 AM) mhmm, its rough
@  Mage Girl : (29 December 2018 - 11:33 AM) I feel like a lot of forums have much less traffic because most of us who appreciate them are much busier than we used to be, and I don't think the younger generation is too keen on finding forums anymore
@  Mage Girl : (29 December 2018 - 11:26 AM) @Fire Blazer No worries, I figured holidays and all you weren't going to respond right away
@  Fire Blazer : (28 December 2018 - 09:16 PM) @Mage Girl, sorry I just saw your message, replied to your PM just now, hope you see my response!
@  Fire Blazer : (28 December 2018 - 09:10 PM) even SF doesn't seem that active compared to before :(
@  Fire Blazer : (28 December 2018 - 09:10 PM) yeah rip, I did try multiple times to keep the forums alive but they just aren't really popular anymore
@  acceptance : (28 December 2018 - 12:44 AM) I came here for the shoutbox but now that I'm in the Discord server I seldom come here anymore.
@  acceptance : (28 December 2018 - 12:43 AM) Yeah.
@  kirant : (23 December 2018 - 07:42 PM) That's pretty true. I log in daily just to make sure there's no issues, but I think using a forum system isn't popular for quite a few of the users here.
@  Ezra : (21 December 2018 - 09:34 AM) Looks like this place had the same turn out as the TEB community, forums died for the most part but the members remain active via other means.

Hi,

 

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?

 

Thanks!

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."

 

it probably IS critical'ing, haha, at least that's what it sounds like here XP

 

anyway xcrash gave some useful info but let us know if you are stuck still :)
