@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  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.

All right, if this is going to be a thing, it's time to set up OBS to capture my VBA screen so I can upload. (OBS uses .flv which is MUCH less space-consuming than .avi files.)

 

Wait, is savestate abuse allowed or no? I'm going to assume no.

I have to hand it to Blazer for bothering with Lyn's mode. I cannot stand it. It's the #1 reason why I don't play FE7.

 

EDIT: Unless he's doing the tutorial-less version. In which case... There is that one chapter that's unwinnable in the that version.

I think he means the one you get if nils is level 7 before lyns mode is completed.

In Hector Mode, there is a chapter 19xx, which is acquired by having Nils get to level 7 in Lyn mode, and killing Kishuna in 19x.

I use Nils...and refuse to use Ninian. Because I'm weird like that, yo.

 

Okay, I lied. I use her enough to get her supports up for Eliwood, and then I'm done.

Thanks for all the posts! I've updated the first post! Sorry for taking so long, I finally got back from my trip just recently and I've been trying to relax and play catch up, so here I am~

We can start in a couple of days, though we're still looking for someone to do FE5.


No way this will be finished by the end of September starting from mid august


thanks for the optimism! lol

It's ok if it doesn't quite finish on time, it is what it is.

I don't really wanna participate but I'll watch lol.


hey, watching helps

All right, if this is going to be a thing, it's time to set up OBS to capture my VBA screen so I can upload. (OBS uses .flv which is MUCH less space-consuming than .avi files.)

Wait, is savestate abuse allowed or no? I'm going to assume no.


yup, do it

and yup, savestate abuse is allowed.

Savestate abuse should definitely be allowed(if it's not i may not make it through 4. Arena abuse was my saving grace XD)


mhmhm

lolwut FE4 is the easiest without savestates. You get to save every turn lol.


how's that

I have to hand it to Blazer for bothering with Lyn's mode. I cannot stand it. It's the #1 reason why I don't play FE7.

EDIT: Unless he's doing the tutorial-less version. In which case... There is that one chapter that's unwinnable in the that version.


ahaha, maybe. I didn't think of that, but I could live through either, maybe. I could always hack away the tutorial and not play hard mode, too. I don't know what chapter is 'unwinnable' though.

ooh,do the Nils secret chapter!


heh, maybe~

I apparently had too many blocks of quoted text so here is part 2 of my post lol
 

^ Uh what? What's that? XD


you don't know?? *gasp*

lol jk
 

yeah but arenas though. i won't be able to use arden without that =P

i'm definitely not using arden though. so useless.


LOL shots fired
 

Is...that a thing? I only know of one EX chapter...


git gud

part of why I like FE7 is all the split chapters and gaiden chapters, adds depth and arguably replay value to it IMO



oh yeah I forgot you had to kill kishuna

I never bothered with it though because I never used nils and ninian.


they're good units in their own way IMO but I kinda feel ya since they're so defenseless and unique and such lol

 

AS FOR THE GAME PLAN FOR THE MARATHON. I'D LIKE TO START ON THE 15TH OF AUGUST. THEN JUST KEEP BEATING GAMES AS WE CAN UNTIL HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES. THE FASTER THE BETTER THOUGH. IF YOU'RE GOING TO RECORD A GAME AND NOT LIVE STREAM IT, PLEASE DO IT SOONER THAN EARLIER AND HAVE THE VIDEOS READY TO UPLOAD AND STUFF.

 

PLEASE STREAM THE GAMES ON YOUR OWN CHANNEL AND THEN WE'LL HOST IT ON MY CHANNEL TOO (assuming I can get it to work). MAKE SURE TO SHARE YOUR STREAM LINK AND POST HERE AS YOU STREAM. I'LL SHARE STUFF ON TWITTER AND IN OTHER PLACES TOO ON OCCASION.

 

It's just a suggestion, but doing it during the day is probably better. And you should export the Twitch streams to YouTube if you can so we have them archived. Call it like "Fire Emblem Marathon - FE# with ______", obviously putting in the # of the game and your name.

 

Savestate abuse is allowed. Cheating is looked down upon/keep it to a minimum. As long as it's minor/pretty close to the OG experience though I don't really care. We may have some overlap, i.e. have two people playing games at once, to make things go faster, but we'll generally try to keep things simple and we want to avoid having two people stream at once.

 

Finally, take note of your completion time and any other cool info after you beat it. We'll make a final post with that kind of stuff. Info like what characters you used or the MVP of your team for instance. :)

 

Any questions feel free to ask. Thanks!!

I'm probably going to be recording since my internet can barely handle playing smash while other people are around, so do you want me to have all the videos like uploaded to YouTube as private until we're ready for 4,or just have them sitting on my hard drive for now?

Edit: also I better get started. I'm notoriously bad at finishing things on time =p

 

Edit again: ok i recorded the first video, but i'm getting some horrible static. gotta figure out what the problem with it is before i do anything else.

I seem to recall that the boss of the chapter was a shaman. I believe the goal was "Defeat the boss," but after he was defeated, nothing happened. Game acted like he hadn't been killed. I had to load up the original, vanilla game and beat him to continue.

 

I'D LIKE TO START ON THE 15TH OF AUGUST.

*checks date* That's tomorrow. crapcrapcrapcrap. I've been procrastinating and this is what I get LOL! I have the first two chapters down, at least. Good news is that starting tomorrow, I'll have the house alone for a couple of days. Perfect chance for recording stuff.
