@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

Here is my key to learning Hex that I just wrote:

Key to Learning Hex by Ryoku:

Hex works like this.
(Variables will be Y and Z)

Whichever number replaces Y, is muliplied by 16, and then whichever number replaces Z is added.
For example:
so that means that 53=83 simple as that!

If you wanted to continue for non hacking reasons, then just use this guide. From right to left, you have "places." In decimal, there is a the ones, tens, hundreds etc.
Here is the key we're using.
0xN...543210 (Y=1 and Z=2 from before). all you have to do is take the number of the "place" and then raise 16 to that power, and then multiply by the Value in the place. For example: 0x2B4

It's that easy!

0xC0 = Ballistas & + 15 Crit (30 on FE6)

To make dem crit happy snipers who can still ballista~

To stack abilities based on hex, find 2 numbers that add up. For example, 0x80 = Ballistas, and 0x40 = + 15 Crit. The sum of these numbers in hex is 0xC0.

THAT'S MORE NIGHTMARE SHIT YO. EH, I guess it's relevant.
I suggest adding in decimal, though. Convert first, then convert back.

For example. In FE8, if you wanted to have these three abilities:
1. Rapier/Sieglinde unlocked (10)
2. Lethality (02)
3. Summoning (08)
you would have to take the given offsets in Nightmare (in parenthesis above) and then convert them to decimal.
then add them together.

Then, convert it back to hex.
Since it's base 16, the first number in your offset is how many 16's you have (1). (If it's still confusing, use the microsoft calculator if you have windows).

So right now, we know that it's 0x1Z
then we need to take what's left over (10) and convert it to hex (A).
The offset for these three abilities would be 1A!

Plug that into ability 4 on Nightmare, and you're good to go!
