Remember when sunlight was our eternal enemy back when our handheld gaming screens looked like this?
 
oldgba.png
 
FE6 was made in those times, and colored accordingly. But this isn't those days anymore and we've all got backlighted screens to play the stuff on.
 
Seeing as Roy's our boy and this is the game I've replayed the most out of every FE game I figured it was high time for me to do what needed to be done.
 
No, I don't mean increasing the accuracy of axes. Someone else did that already.
 
This is what I mean.
 
lilinapls.png
 
old.png
 
new.png
 
The aforementioned AZN Roy (I don't even know why he feels so AZN he just does), Hector and Eliwood getting away with the years being as hard on them as it has for Murdock (prepare to have your immersion broken in the very first chapter!), genderswapped Lucius greeting you when you want to save just because, and everyone's been recolored with the Mercurius touch. (...does that mean they've all turned into quicksilver?)
 
updateproof.png
EVERYONE.
 
So wait...you mean it's just a reskin?
Don't think of it as a reskin. It's Fire Emblem: Sword of Seals with deeper and/or more accurate colors (to official art) and a few portrait touch ups here and there. That's all it's trying to be. Most everything is the same.
 
Did you test this thoroughly?
No. We Ubisoft now.
 
Any stat changes at all?
Legendary weapons have 50 uses now, aside from the Divine Stone and the Sealed Sword, which have infinite uses. Their might however isn't as high as it used to be, and they don't have super effectiveness against dragons anymore. Yes, this does mean it's a better idea to kill the war dragons with wyrmslayers than those.
 
Roy now has buffed bases, 6 move, and his caps are identical to his promoted caps. This is to make him more useful during the point of the game where you just don't have any more levels to get him until Chapter 22. Marcus has been somewhat nerfed to somewhat counterbalance Roy being better at the early game. Lilina has lord-tier growth totals (because why the hell shouldn't she?) Wendy has better bases in respect of being the first female knight playable (though whether she's worth using anyway is another matter) and Cecilia has total bases on par with normal mode Percival now because...you know how it is with me and pretty older girls that can be paired up with cute younger boys.
 
shotapls.png
 
Wait why have all the brunettes gone red, green or black haired?
You either know the reason or shouldn't question it lest you want me to go on a rant about hair dye.
 
Patching
UPS Patch
Due to complications with multiple patches, I've had to include the translation patch by gringe over at SF, so unlike the screenshots shown, it will not be in Japanese and you won't need another patch to have it in English.
 
ROM used:
0378 - Fire Emblem - Sealed Sword (J)(Eurasia)
 
 
I'm pretty sure most of you know how this works by now but obligatory info and all. Download the UPS Patch and NUPS from the pages linked, extract NUPS onto your computer, get a clean ROM of FE6 somewhere elsewhere because legal reasons, open NUPS, click "Apply an UPS patch to a file", browse your directories for the ROM in "File to patch" and select it, same goes for the patch you downloaded, create backup just in case, and you're done!

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

Hmm, wasn't sure what to expect, so this is what you meant, huh.
 

Remember when sunlight was our eternal enemy back when our handheld gaming screens looked like this?


not really but when I went back to play my GBA some time ago I was reminded lol
 

 

Seeing as Roy's our boy and this is the game I've replayed the most out of every FE game I figured it was high time for me to do what needed to be done.

 

No, I don't mean increasing the accuracy of axes. Someone else did that already.

 


yay FE6

lolaxes
 
Don't really mind the stat changes but some of the recolors I don't really like (Lance and Rutger, for instance), the blushing is weird/I could do without, new Roy is... not the worst but I don't really like him, I'm confused as to why Wade's hair is green now (did you also recolor his sister?), what the heck is with that weird shoujo manga effect you used a couple times in your post? lol, were 47, 55, and 86 always like that???, Jagen somehow looks even older, Karel looks super weird... ok, some of these recolors must be a result of this
 

 

Wait why have all the brunettes gone red, green or black haired?

You either know the reason or shouldn't question it lest you want me to go on a rant about hair dye.

 

 
sorry but you're going to have to explain this nonsense lol
 

---

 

I don't agree with getting rid of the super effectiveness for the legendary weapons but whatever. hopefully they aren't nerfed too hard...

 

I like the small buffs to the female characters you mentioned though

 

Al is cool, it would have been nice to see him (as long as he's not weird-looking like Roy *shot*)

 

The Eliwood/Hector changes are definitely like ???? (my brain doesn't like this/can't handle it, also where's the bloody version of Hector)

 

tbh I prefer the original in various ways (mostly the colors--you and I seem to have different preferences for colors, lol) it's not bad and could prove a solid change of pace for some~

 the blushing is weird/I could do without

 

what the heck is with that weird shoujo manga effect you used a couple times in your post?

I thought the purpose of making Roy look attractive to those girls was evident.

 

Don't really mind the stat changes but some of the recolors I don't really like (Lance and Rutger, for instance),

I very much prefer Lance's new look (before his and Alan's hypersaturated color searing through the monitor basically made me bench them ASAP...) but I can agree in that I couldn't really decide what to do with Rutger in terms of making him look good. Official art's colors are less appealing than originals, originals kind of become either too intense or too dull from adjustment...

 

lol, were 47, 55, and 86 always like that??? Karel looks super weird... 

No, I shoved a helmet on 47, 55 is the result of making incredibly unimportant NPCs look even further unimportant by taking away their colorful armor, and 86 is another byproduct of that kind of idea.

 

I agree in that it's hard to get Karel looking like he should because the overall coloring is stronger than before but I think you shouldn't really make judgments based on images that have even smaller dimensions than the original size, I can't even see Gale's eyes from the thumbnail.

 

I don't agree with getting rid of the super effectiveness for the legendary weapons but whatever. hopefully they aren't nerfed too hard...

IIRC all of them except the tomes (because from what I remember the weight of those things suck anyway and mages have the squishiness disadvantage against dragons) have like 2 less Might. The super effectiveness removal is because everybody knows the last two chapters of FE6 are comically easy with it.

 

Al is cool, it would have been nice to see him (as long as he's not weird-looking like Roy *shot*)

I made him forever ago so he's probably stranger than Roy is (and it's based on that one time his hair grew long)

Pretty sure FE6 was never on the standard DS models, or on the N!3DS.

 

With Gameboys you actually WANTED to be in the sun, as long as the sun wasn't glaring off your screen. You could see EVERYTHING with PRISTINE detail if you were in sunlight.

 

I still play my GBA. I should know.

In case anyone has already patched their ROM before the making of this post for when they feel like playing FE6 again sometime, I've updated it with more adjustments to Clarine, Klein, Elphin, Rutger, Lance, and Karel, replacing the link in the first post. It is advised to patch a clean ROM rather than one that's already been patched to avoid complications.

I can't remember actually ever bringing an OG GBA outside (funnily enough) but I do remember my GBASP (which has a backlight that can be turned off) being virtually impossible to see on in places with lots of sunshine with the backlight off, with the example picture being a simulation of when the sun isn't messing with you...I wonder what's different about them.

...I don't think you're remembering correctly. I ONLY ever use my GBA SP these days for its backlight, and I can see perfectly fine in direct sunlight.

 

Now, if we were talking about the original DS, then yeah, sure. You can't see DIDDLY SQUAT in the sunlight. On the original 3DS, you could tilt the screen just right and the colors would bleed out of the screen, but you could actually see, strangely enough. Not sure what caused this effect, but my N!3DSXL doesn't have this trait. So sunlight is my eternal enemy with my 3DS XL.

 

But GBA SP? Just turn the backlight off to save battery and play in the sun.

Hold up.

 

ELIWOOD IS 37 IN FE6? Christ how sickly is he to look the way he does originally. I almost feel like it would be more accurate to use my replacement if he did not have such a debilitating health condition. Maybe with a few age lines like Zealot or something. (though Zealot himself looks more like someone in his forties to me)

 

...I don't think you're remembering correctly. I ONLY ever use my GBA SP these days for its backlight, and I can see perfectly fine in direct sunlight.

I wish I could just test it myself since I do still have my GBASP, but it's battery has been dead for ages and my charger has probably gone to oblivion.

^yeah the beard was maybe a bit much but still somehow kinda cool idk

 

and yeah I guess Eliwood really was sick LOL
 

I would add to this sunlight conversation but sadly I can't really remember crap except that sometimes the struggle was real

 

Al looks fine I think in part because he doesn't really have precedence for a GBA portrait so there's not much to compare to/not much bias as far as how he "should" look *shrug*

 

You should have made it so Roy promotes earlier but that might be asking for a bit much from you lol (I did it in mine but all I did was make it so that like, the Hero Crest promotes Roy, added another Hero Crest somewhere, and then got rid of the promotion event in super-late-game so he doesn't promote--that being said I haven't even hit said promotion scene so I'll soon see if it works... and even if it does I don't remember what I did so you'd have to like, reverse engineer my patch using NUPS' patch difference thing or whatever and find out what random values I changed and to what)

I may or may not have made the Sword of Seals have infinite uses and nerfed its power simply because I wanted to watch those awesome flaming sword animations. Really sucked I had to wait so long to get it, though.

 

Remind me to use your version next time. lol

It makes enough sense for someone conscious of their ugly face to cover it and I don't want to look at it.

No, I'm the one that just straight up has someone kill him before he's recruited. Preferably by Lilina herself.
