@  acceptance : (20 June 2018 - 02:29 AM) Sick nasty.
@  acceptance : (20 June 2018 - 02:29 AM) No More Heroes 3 is a thing.
@  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)
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) The thing I thought might be interesting for gameplay is that it looked like maybe there were "units" that were actually ~a dozen generics. You can see a large group of archers and a large group of mages attack simultaneously.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) I appreciate that Edelgard is wearing pants and not exposing her cleavage. These are useful things in battle.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:23 PM) There's not much there.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:18 PM) Hey, guys, did you watch the Fire Emblem: Three Houses trailer? Thoughts?
@  acceptance : (12 June 2018 - 12:19 AM) Abyss 3DS will never be a thing that makes sense to me lol.
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) but maybe they'll just remake it from the ground-up one day, who knows
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) I already played it for PS2 and 3DS, so I think I'd have passed on that
@  acceptance : (11 June 2018 - 03:35 PM) Although in terms of remakes I would have preferred an Abyss PS4 version. Beggars can't be choosers and all that, though.

So I've jumped back into hacking recently and I'm at the stage of making my first map. I cannot make heads or tales of where stuff is located in tilesets. Example: I'm trying to build a fort. I cannot for the life of me figure out where all the different corner tiles are.

 

So any tips or any kind of guide y'all could point me to?

whoop, just saw this.

 

so this is more of a map-making question than a hacking question, right? you're doing it in Mappy or whatever, I'm guessing? sadly, i think a lot of it is just trial/error and looking around, but generally speaking, somewhat similar stuff tends to be grouped together... but more than that, I think you can get a good idea by looking at existing maps.

 

for instance, I'm not sure what you mean by a fort (something like chapter 4 in FE7, or chapter 7x in FE7?) but by looking at a map that has the same tileset or the like, you could see which tiles you need, then look for those in the full tileset, and go from there.

 

if you didn't already figure it out, hopefully that helps a little

I'm using Tiled since it's supposed to be better than Mappy. Thanks for the reply Blazer. I'll give that a try.

Yeah, by a fort I mean the indoor areas with stone walls.

oh yeah, people started using that some time ago, didn't they. I kinda quit hacking so I forgot and don't think I ever used Tiled myself.

 

hopefully you can figure something out regardless though.
