@  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

Dude wait what

Anyway, I got this ****ing awesome idea where I take Pokemon Ruby and make a Suikoden themed hack. Sounds pretty sweet, amirite? : D

Anyways, I literally just began this yesterday, and I don't have a patch ready (except for a tech demo patch but who wants that?!)

The basic idea for a story we have thus far is you play as either Caesar or Apple, and... they do stuff. And Harmonia is involved. To be honest we're not sure of all the details yet, but I'll make sure it's awesome.

Basically right now I'm working only on stuff like animations, the Stars, and music; I'm waiting for those guys to come up with a clever and viable plot before I do any real scripting...

Here's the current change log:

V. 0.2
-added several songs
-playable "residence" demo
-playable overworld demo
-some sprites added
-some scripts, complete with dialogue profiles
-Intro changed
-Day/Night system added
-gender based events

Known issues
-Some text comes up as a small garbled mess.
-If one of your characters dies, and you trigger a double battle, the "double battle with one Pokemon" glitch occurs.

V. 0.1
- Voicegroups have been completely redone. Because of this, unmodified songs sound... quite awful.
- Animation to battle characters added (really only applies to Riou_Test because the other character doesn't have a complete spritesheet)
- A song sample ("Mercenary Fort" without percussion)
- Text Changes (there's a small glitch with this, where it says "Time" twice when saving your game)
- Removal of Pokéball animation (the character is still there because they'll be replaced with Apple/Caesar)
- Riou_Test added as a sample character (maxed out stats... lol)
- Cries were removed.

A couple of buddies of mine are working here to work on more intricate details, because I suck at coming up with fanfiction and these guys don't. But if anybody's willing to help with things like sprites or anything, that'd be just wonderful.

What's the story in the hack? Hunting all cratures you can see, even if they're in the list of nearly extincted animals, beat the sh*t out of every teenager you can see and demoralisize them and to say it short just sastify our own evil ego? Or is it muuuutch better (and nicer) than that?

Depends on whether or not you can do Suikoden-like battle sprites.

Here's a sample to show you the style I'm looking for. The sprites on the bottom (in isometric) are battle sprites.

Here's a quick one I threw together last night.
user posted image

Each sprite has three frames and 16 colours. The frames are run in quick succession 3 times and stop on the fourth repeat on the first frame. Frames are 64x64 pixels. The actual image is 64x192 pixels, because the three frames are on top of each other. The first frame occupies the top 64x64 block, the seconds occupies the middle, and the third occupies the bottom. Preferably sprites should be preforming a similar animation from the back and the front.

Post me a sample, and if I approve of your work, I'll start giving you stock images of characters we need.

SUIKODEN!!!!

I've actually only played Suikoden Tierkries, but that one was good, so I'll just assume the rest of them are OK too, because I don't feel like playing them.

Anyway, this seems like a very unique pokemon hack, especially because it's not even very Pokemon-ish, but is using Pokemon as a base... Be sure to keep me updated with screenshots, I might even play this XD

Thanks, dude. This is the last patch released, although still in a really beta-ish state...

I know the others are different and Tierkries is considered the odd one, but the others don't seem like my kind of game, and IIRC they aren't portable, and are relatively old, so yeah... =/

...And (E)? European? wtf? lol

No, I wouldn't know, because I don't memorize random ass game codes, or know any patterns in them. >_>

I don't have a PSP... only a DS and a Wii. So that's a silly idea, Charon. =P

@Blazer Emulate them with ps1 emus you ass^^

Now to the funnier part.
What's the difference between Apple and Ceaser exept of their gender?
The encounter rate is tooooo mutch low. You should increase the overworld en. rate by 35%,
in indoor areas by 60% and in puzzle rooms (if you introduce anyone) you should dissable then. Sadly, I can't support you with more opitions sad.gif

@Blaz - u can emulate psx on wii lolol

Thanks for the response.

They will go seperate ways later in the game. This is essentially a demo at this point.

Yeah, I lowered the encounter rates so I wouldn't have to deal with constant encounters, but 65% is just ridiculous by Pokemon standards. Normal encounter rate is about 3%. Might raise it to about 5-7% but that's most.

okay, that makes sense.

So right now I'm working on that "Terren Pass" part. Probably won't have any puzzles, one at most. There will be some sort of strong boss monster that attacks you at that point. Also, there will be a recruit available later in the pass. Once you finish you'll be in "Grassland" and going to "Cyndar Ruins" will be a piece of cake - unlike SIII it will be a straight go-through point and you can't travel west past it without going through it, so yeah.

Fun stuff happens there. Puzzles will probably be rampant in that area as well. You'll also get a story-based recruit there, but lose one of your recruits in your party. Things will get... well... really effed up in terms of storyline. You know, biiiiig change in the importance of events. lol
