@  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)

Alright, I'm very interested in Hacking Fire emblem, but I'm stuck on a stupid MAC. I can only use a hex editor, and Java programs.
I've had decent GBA hacking experience before, so I'm interested in hacking FE7.

Whoever is willing o help me out, please d so and I'll be extremely grateful.
I figure that a good starting point would be to get any Java stuff I can (I have no idea what's out there, and maybe also a Text font table, if anyone has one. It'd be a start I think.
I any case, thank you in advance to all who replay.


EDIT:
I have Nightmare 2.0, and the GBA modules, but whenever I open a module, the program freezes up.
I also downloaded FEeditor advance, but have no idea what to do with it.

FEditor Advance and Nightmare 2.0 both run using Java. Make SURE you have the latest Java PROPRELY installed, all runtime environments and that good stuff.

For Nightmare 2.0, just open the ROM and then open the appropraite modules. If you're using an FE7 ROM you only open FE7 modules. The latest Nightmare Modules can be found on the FEShrine--http://www.feshrine.net -- anywhere else is probably outdated.

For FEditor Advance/FEditor Adv (note, "FEeditor" is incorrect) it works the same way. I'm not sure if the batch file called 'run' will work on a Mac but there should be a README that will tell you where the .jar program is. You run the .jar with Java and then once FEditor Adv loads, load your game and then load the appropriate editor. To start, you'll probably want to use the text editor.

For all of Nintenlord's programs, if you install Mono it should work as a substitute for .NET Framework, meaning you should be able to run his programs too. That lets you use most FE hacking programs except for a few ones like Mappy Map Editor and Sappy, which are for maps and music respectively (although you don't NEED Sappy for music, and technically you don't need Mappy for maps either but Mappy makes it a TON easier to make maps).

Yeah. when I open FE7 in nightmare, and open an FE7 module, it loads the screen as a blank screen with the title.
I'm pretty sure I have the latest java and stuff.

As for FEditor Adv, I can open he .jar, but I don't have any "editors" I don't think.

Everything is one program, so... The best way to learn is to experiment.

Also, idk why Nightmare 2.0 would do that except that you aren't loading the stuff properly. Make sure you have the correct Fire Emblem ROM, #1235 (U) (obviously don't ask for a download).

^Right, that makes a big difference. Just saying so you know for the future. FEditor Adv ONLY supports the (U) version, some of NL's programs support any version but most patches are also for the (U) versions of the game. happy.gif

Here's one idea. Make a video of your screen (what you are doing) so I can see what you might be doing wrong.

Also, just to make sure, you've re-installed Java right?

and how old is your mac? Maybe if it's TOO old it just fails and there is nothing we can do. lol D:

Feditor advance seems to work fine, but I haven't really tried much with it yet.

Idk. You almost made some mistakes (opening the module instead of the ROM) but it looks like you did everything right. I'd say "ask Xeld" but he just posted in this thread and didn't mention anything and he's the one who made NM2...

Yep. I don't intend to answer any questions about anything if I can avoid it at least until I fix the bugs with FEditor and NM 2.0.
