@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  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

Hi,

 

Using FE7 here, working with Nightmare 1 and FEditor.

 

I've been trying to modify the Mani Katti to do 1 - 2 range, and pretty much act as a magic sword.

I thought it would be simple enough, change the range to 0x12 and then go to the spell association editor.

The weapon itself works fine; it has the 1-2 range and doesn't act weird at all. Just like a normal sword. But when I use it at 2 range, the animation kind of plays (lyn puts up her sword and it flashes, just like if using a real magic sword), but instead of an actual spell being cast, she just kind of puts the blade down again. This occurs twice if she's doubling. The sword flashes rapidly (like if I was critting) when dealing a finishing blow on an enemy.

 

I've tried to associate different spells to the sword, yet none of them work. I've also tried changing the weapon type to anima and the Weapon ability 'weapon' to magic, but they both just made Lyn unable to use the sword at all. 

 

I'm using custom palette, if that matters at all?

 

Is the ''magic weapon'' just hard-coded into the game?

And if so, is there a way to make Lyn recieve a modified Light Brand instead of the Mani Katti at the end of Chapter 2?

 

Thanks!

To asign a spell to a weapon did you went to the spell association editor in the item folder ther is a drop down menu for which spell to asign, you can use anything.

and make sure to press enter and then ctrl + s before switching to another module

 

(what you described happened is when a character is useing a range 2 weapon without a spell animation. So just the animation playing but nothing happens, but the battle actualy happens like normal so back on the map the enemy will now have the reduced HP or dies if you did enough damage )

 

(actually if you gave the character a magic level he will always use his magic animation which can cause problems)

 

you need to enter 0x12 for the range to get range 1-2.

 

otherwise you don't need to change anything else.

 

If you want to change the weapon lyn gets at the end of chapter 2 you need to change the Mani Kattie itself in the item editor

(just use the slot of the many kattie and change everything up).

 

In case you want to change the text you will need FEditor.

for the weapon name the number and letters after the 0x is the slot you need to search for in the FEditor text editor

the same goes for the weapon description.

"The sword flashes rapidly (like if I was critting) when dealing a finishing blow on an enemy."
