@  Idiot : (14 August 2017 - 01:08 PM) Aside from maybe a twitter, and a Skype I no longer have access to lol.
@  Idiot : (14 August 2017 - 01:08 PM) I don't actually have any public contact information, though. So that would explain why you don't have it.
@  Fire Blazer : (14 August 2017 - 05:08 AM) ahahaha. can't fault that logic.
@  kirant : (14 August 2017 - 01:41 AM) A quiet forum suits me better I think...so few hours in the day that I don't feel like sorting through all the activity on an active one for the nuggets of gold. Sturgeon's law and all.
@  kirant : (14 August 2017 - 01:40 AM) Ha. Someone assumes I leave forums. I think there's been 2 (?) that I've quit before their servers got shut down.
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 09:08 PM) hmmmm~
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:43 PM) i dunno, just thinking with these forums being kinda lifeless, i'll get sad thinking i have no way to talk to some people anymore. even if they are an idiot :P

@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:42 PM) if you have Discord you should at least add me there.
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:42 PM) now that I think about it, I don't have any of your contact info, Idiot.
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:41 PM) there's really no shortage of bad or concerning or upsetting news lately, so I can agree with that. though maybe it's a bit of an understatement... lol
@  Idiot : (12 August 2017 - 12:03 PM) I think meh is an accurate description of current times in general lol
@  zac : (12 August 2017 - 03:59 AM) it's been a very "meh" kinda time
@  zac : (12 August 2017 - 03:59 AM) nothing is going on right now, game releases i'm actually interested in have been slow
@  zac : (12 August 2017 - 03:59 AM) honestly i have wanted to post, but just haven't had anything to post about
@  kirant : (09 August 2017 - 03:50 AM) I'm starting to imagine it like a twice shy situation (or as Wikipedia tells me, mamihlapinatapai)...we're wanting to post but don't want to be the first one to post.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 August 2017 - 01:32 AM) *sees "45 users are online"*

even half of those were actual posting members... alas, lol. the glory days of FES have long since passed.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 August 2017 - 01:31 AM) obv still haven't beaten P5 either, haven't played in ages, stopped somewhere after Futaba's dungeon, I think. oh well

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.
