@  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.

I'm playing Awakening right now and have encountered the same frustrations I felt in previous games.  What are the differences between normal and hard mode?  Is it just more reinforcements, or are enemies leveled up higher?  Also is there some sort of hack, for any of the FE roms, to get rid of reinforcements?

 

Also is there a way to hack any of the game roms to be able to progress past level 20?  And speaking of leveling up if I choose to use the master seal on a level 20 character, instead of lets say a level 8 character, will the amount my stats increase be the same?  I'm just trying to see if waiting later to use the master seal will allow me to maximize character stats later on in the game.

 

PS:  The level 20 limit, particularly on hard mode, is such an AWFUL concept.  I don't understand the point at all.  If I want to focus on making a few characters really powerful why shouldn't I be able to do so.

waiting til 20 to promote is always a good idea. if you use it at level 10(the earliest promotion possible) you're missing out on 10 levels of stat gains. the level 20 limit is there to prevent every character from maxing all stats, however awakening breaks this with the way reclassing works. you can definitely hack the games to remove that limit, and i believe there may be a way to do so in awakening as well, but you would need to hack your 3ds to be able to run such a hack. for the gba/snes/wii/gcn games you should be able to run the games on an emulator assuming you have something capable of doing so. i personally have never seen any romhack that specifically removes reinforcements, and i'm not sure anyone would make something like that as it would lower the difficulty by a massive amount. i wouldn't play something like that tbh. the difference between normal and hard mode is usually enemy stats. in awakening's late game this is pretty negligible because you can max out every character as long as you're willing to put the time in.

 

And now that i've answered all of your questions: it's good forum etiquette to introduce yourself on the new members board before just asking questions. in fact some forums include that in the rules(i don't think this particular forum does, but either way it's just good manners).

So the amount of reinforcements on hard mode is the same as on easy? And I have a gateway card for my 3ds. What hacks are available for the two 3ds games. Also I use emulators for the gba and ds games.

PS: sorry about not starting an Intro thread first. I've been part of a fair amount of forums and never knew that was proper conduct.

To my knowledge there are no hacks for fates and awakening that change anything in terms of difficulty in any way, reinforcements included. the only ones that i have seen are same sex marriage mods. you might want to check around gbatemp as there are some utilities made for awakening. you could potentially just make such a hack yourself.

 

as a side note i would suggest moving away from gateway, there are better alternatives now that are easier to work with.

So if I were to shift away from hard back to normal I would see the same amount of reinforcements (just at easier levels)?  Also I'm very content with gateway.  What are the advantages to a different modding method?

 

And while reinforcements on bases aren't too bad, since they can be blocked with your own troops, reinforcements via sky troops are impossible to block (and therefore it seems there's less strategy involved, just a random attempt to make things more difficult for the user).

I'll not be discussing 3ds hacking methods anymore here, you'll have to go to a dedicated website.

The reinforcements are there to increase difficulty, but like I said these games would be a joke without them. Even on hard mode your characters easily outclass enemies by several degrees. You're asking for something that nobody is going to want which is why I suggested you learn how to do it yourself. Personally I just can't be bothered to put the effort into something that I'll never use.

Reinforcements are actually less pressure on your team in contrast to if they were to say, all be on the map at the same time. I mean they usually won't attack on the same turn they appear so you essentially have time to clear out immediate threats before the next one gets a turn at you. The exception I suppose would be reinforcements that show up when you step on a tile that triggers their appearance (as opposed to them just showing up by time) because that requires memorization (or luck) to avoid an actual ambush with all the consequences that entails.


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

Why would you want to hack Awakening to not have the level 20 limit? Awakening has the awesome ability to have INFINITE level ups thanks to second seals and master seals? Both of which reset the unit's level to 1!
