@  kirant : (27 May 2018 - 08:58 PM) I certainly found Vesperia's gameplay to be one of the biggest appeals (even if I broke the game halfway through by doing something as innocuous as "played as Rita". I swear the entire game became one long string of machine gun fireballs).

I'm personally still a larger fan of Symphonia, but that's probably an age bias for me. I grew up with Symphonia and spent years with friends playing a 4 player campaign. The only thing it was missing was the ability to move your characters in the 3rd dimension (instead sticking you as a player on the 2 dimensions while allowing allies and enemies to go full 3D).
@  Fire Blazer : (27 May 2018 - 08:17 PM) I also DID enjoy Vesperia's combat system, though I can kind of understand why one wouldn't, but like, the rest of it was definitely key to making it one of my all-time favorite games
@  Fire Blazer : (27 May 2018 - 08:16 PM) I also really like Vesperia's artstyle, I looked at it again recently and I still think it looks pretty solid for a game that's like, 10 or so years old
@  acceptance : (25 May 2018 - 06:05 AM) See I've never even played Vesperia on account of it's 360 exclusivity in America. But from screenshots and such I've seen, it's super pretty.
@  Elwood : (25 May 2018 - 05:56 AM) I really really didn't like Vesperia's combat system but it's still one of my favorite games. That game's visuals, characters and story are phenomenal.
@  acceptance : (25 May 2018 - 05:33 AM) I think something similar to Vesperia's art sytle would be great. That game is just super pleasant to look at.
@  Fire Blazer : (25 May 2018 - 01:41 AM) and yeah, it's about time they do a new engine, I'm assuming that's why it's been more than 1 year since the last Tales of game (and why it feels so long), lol. hopefully it's good. I'd kinda like for them to go back to colorful games and maybe either get a good art style going assuming they can't just make it outright look good (I'm not a fan of going for more realistic graphics only for the textures to be like, low-res...)
@  Fire Blazer : (25 May 2018 - 01:40 AM) been hearing Berseria is a better game, even though what I saw of it didn't really impress me. I do still plan to play it eventually though.

and idr about the opening but Zestiria had a solid song. just kinda catchy lol
@  acceptance : (25 May 2018 - 12:46 AM) Speaking of which, I hear the next one will use a whole new engine. Maybe they'll like; animate the lips, too.
@  acceptance : (24 May 2018 - 10:58 PM) Tales** also. Oopsie poopsies.
@  acceptance : (24 May 2018 - 10:58 PM) Berseria is a better game though, I quite liked it.
@  acceptance : (24 May 2018 - 10:57 PM) I've come to realize that Takes of Zestiria has a super rad opening song, and Berseria's was a steaming pile of doo doo.
@  Fire Blazer : (24 May 2018 - 01:55 AM) lolol

@Rujio yeah, I remember hearing something like that too. It makes enough sense, remaking a game is a bit less work than coming up with an entirely new one, haha.
@  Rujio : (22 May 2018 - 04:15 AM) Apparently FE2 was remade because IS was looking ahead to the Switch, but couldn't start developing for it yet, so they did the simplest/shortest project they could.
@  acceptance : (22 May 2018 - 02:56 AM) Yikes. If that was me acting smart, I think I may be dumber than anyone thought.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) @Kirant yeah, in a way it is, but also FE1/3 were kinda already remade already, so in that sense, FE2 makes sense (being the oldest game to not be remade, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) tfw Idiot tries to sound smart XP
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) lol
@  acceptance : (20 May 2018 - 11:20 PM) So,the answer is the coin itself.
@  acceptance : (20 May 2018 - 11:19 PM) Oh yeah if you do that, the coin will go up... And then it will go down, thanks to gravity. Genius.

So I just barely joined and am already asking questions.

 

Anyways, I wanted to try messing with Portraits, and as an exercise, I spliced Ephraim's head on Franz's body, and gave this guy the hair color of some boss in FE8, and used Ephraim's hair color for the armor (Which I think looks pretty cool!). Now, after finally getting down to 16 colors and the 128x112 dimensions, I went and tried to insert it into FEditor. Alas, this all occurred (see attached pictures). 

 

I tried the classic click and drag in FEditor, which usually solves these kinds of problems, but it didn't work this time.

 

I used the portrait of Franz as a template, so I thought I had dimensions correct on the half-closed eyes and closed eyes sections, but I could be completely off. So my question is: Are there any glaring mistakes on my portrait thing? I tried shifting things around a bit, but it didn't seem to immediately fix the problem...

 

Any advice?

That's an alignment thing. You'll need to shift the portrait(specifically the mugshot portion) until it lines up. Your best bet here is trial and error, just keep trying until you've gotten it close, then start counting how many pixels off you are. You'll get there eventually ^_^

Your best bet is actually the use of a grid that comes with some image editing programs. It specifically shows you the borders you need to follow.

Thank you both so much! I followed your instructions, and it turns out that I was just trying to be lazy and just do whatever I could without any sort of grid. But in my defense, I wasn't able to find a template like the one Mercurius had until now. I'm definitely saving that to use later! 
 
So thank you both so much! :D  :D

That template is twice as big as it should be (because I had to show the grid properly), this is the properly sized one (although as mentioned in the guide you really should use a program that has layers if you are going to use it, like paint.net or Photoshop)
