@  Fire Blazer : (06 December 2017 - 07:16 PM) if the VA strike helped bring in a bit more diversity, then I suppose that's a good thing, lol
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:07 PM) What I'm trying to get at is that the variety might have been caused by necessity by developers. As much as I was always a fan, I don't think some certain VAs that I thought had great range (ex - Cherami Leigh, DC Douglas) would have gotten their bigger roles without such a strike.
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:05 PM) I think it's mostly because of a VA strike. A bunch have agreed to not work with major game creators (until an agreement was reached early November this year). This included some extremely prominent VAs (ex - Jennifer Hale).
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:36 PM) I feel like the variety is increasing a little bit though, if only because with voice acting becoming more common and people recognizing voices more, there's a little bit of benefit to getting some different voices, perhaps
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:34 PM) lol yeah there are some really prominent VOs that will get a lot of roles, and often times big ones
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:59 PM) Oh, ok fine. You can ignore the post
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:58 PM) Nope was an error on my end
@  kirant : (26 November 2017 - 10:32 PM) Troy Baker takes an insane number of roles. Him, Matt Mercer, and Laura Bailey all seem to be plastered all over games.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2017 - 07:27 PM) Fire Blazer Yeah you are right. Just depends on how far it goes but then there is the question on what is to far or still ok.
@  Idiot : (26 November 2017 - 05:26 AM) There was a game I recently played where Troy Baker did the voice for like 4 different character. That dude is in everything.
@  Mig64 : (25 November 2017 - 05:57 AM) So I was watching the character intros for Fire Emblem Warriors, and I have to say Gharnef should've been voiced by Troy Baker.

@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:47 PM) and I think it'll stay this way for a bit. do you not like it? any alternatives that don't compromise the benefits of DLC? (e.g. Smash 4 DLC characters; would you rather delay the game for more characters, just so that they aren't released as DLC instead?)
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) and you can see how they do their mobile games, so... yeah, Nintendo was a bit late to do it, but they eventually did join the other big companies with the new way of selling games and such

------------------------------------------------

 

When coming up with the Chapter Creation Blitz, I was reminded of a piece of advice I received from Blazer a long time ago:

 

And lastly, ambition. This goes for any game development project, fan game, hack, or professional, but while a delayed project is usually better than a rushed one, a finished project is also usually much more enjoyable than a not-finished one. You can always go back and make things better and stuff later, but basically my point is, most custom hacks don't finish but it's also one of the nicest things about a hacks, and people hear this but tend to not take it seriously enough. If you can finish the hack, you've already accomplished something great, and you're free to go back and add to it/polish it more. Idk if you've played TLP but it was a lot, lot more basic before it turned out how it did.
 
Basically my point is... just keep moving forward.

 

 

So, I took that concept to its logical extreme, and the result turned out better than I could have ever imagined. So a huge thank you to everyone who worked on this project, and special thanks to Blazer for planting the seeds way back when.

 

Enjoy!

Uh... wow. I've been pretty busy so I haven't been able to visit much and just saw this, but this seems super cool for a < 1-week hack, I can only imagine how much work you must have put in that time :o

 

Reminds me of the one-day hack I did, not a revolutionary idea or anything, but maybe a bit nostalgic to see someone do something a bit similar, but with a longer timeframe

 

I'm seeing some kind of scary/crazy things here to say the least, maybe it's because I don't mod anymore but there seem to be a lot of backend changes (skills and the stat screen changes for instance) that have piqued my curiosity, and IIRC you were the person behind the RWBY hack? so I'm guessing I can expect sweet things from you, heh.

 

*31 chapters* is also kind of impressive, I mean, even without the given timeframe, haha. it seems like there are some custom maps and dialog too so... this is definitely something I want to play in the future, whenever I finally have the time for fun little things like these again, but I'ma download the patch now for sure XD

 

---

 

About that last bit... like, woah, haha. To think I actually inspired someone, that's awesome haha, thank you for sharing that.

 

I'm pretty confident I didn't mean to do so, especially since the way I put what I said was... not all that eloquent, but I'm really happy that someone took my words to heart.

 

Like, I can tell you without a doubt, that if you said this hack wasn't actually finished, I'd have still thought it was cool, but I would not have had the urge to actually play it. After all, that feeling of "aww man, I was having fun but now I have to wait X amount of time before I can play Y!" (assuming Y ever finishes) is just not fun, but going into a game and knowing I can get to the end, even if it's a little silly or rough around the edges, is great, and I'm confident that if you can make a relatively rushed product be fun, a polished product with all your time and effort put into it will almost certainly be a success that many will enjoy :)

 

On that note, I realize we're kind of dead here, but thanks for sharing it, since I may not have seen this anytime in the near future otherwise, and I've shared it on our discord so maybe someone else will take a crack at it too, if they haven't already =)

Hey, thanks for the kind words haha

 

Yeah, there have been a LOT of changes in the hacking process that this project shows off. Aside from the boatloads of ASM, the whole process is done without ever using Nightmare or FEditor, and there is no longer any need to record offsets or make backups (beyond using github for version control).

 

I've updated the link to always point to the latest release, and we're continually polishing so whenever you get the chance I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!

haha, using github for a mod, somehow I find that funny. it's not wrong or bad or anything, just kind of not something I imagined to happen, XP.

 

(I mean, sure, I've used git-based repo systems for more traditional programming projects and such, I just didn't really think to use it for something like a hack, esp. if the ROM is being edited directly... I mean, with how hacks were done before at least, I don't think git would be as efficient at things, but I'm guessing there's some new system that makes things go better so it's not making copies of entire 16-32MB ROMs every time, haha)

 

good to hear @ release, I already downloaded it but I'll keep it in mind that I should maybe check for an update if I don't get to play it in for a while yet, haha

Yeah, we don't include the rom in the repo, nor do we edit the rom directly. Instead, all edits are converted to event format and we use #includes to have them all covered by a single master event file aka buildfile, which is then run through event assembler to create a full hack from a clean rom in one go.

 

There are many advantages to this, the big one in particular being that Event Assembler handles all the memory management and location tracking for you. On top of that, the event files together record every single change that is being done to a clean rom so it's easy to track down and correct errors. To support this we have a full suite of tools for everything from nightmare modules to spell animations to make them compatible with EA.

 

Thus, the process involves simply running the MAKE HACK script which copies the clean rom, runs auxiliary tools, builds the hack, and then generates a ups for release. If anything goes wrong we simply comment out or use git to roll back the changes to the event files and rebuild from a fresh rom.
