@  Fire Blazer : (06 December 2017 - 07:16 PM) if the VA strike helped bring in a bit more diversity, then I suppose that's a good thing, lol
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:07 PM) What I'm trying to get at is that the variety might have been caused by necessity by developers. As much as I was always a fan, I don't think some certain VAs that I thought had great range (ex - Cherami Leigh, DC Douglas) would have gotten their bigger roles without such a strike.
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:05 PM) I think it's mostly because of a VA strike. A bunch have agreed to not work with major game creators (until an agreement was reached early November this year). This included some extremely prominent VAs (ex - Jennifer Hale).
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:36 PM) I feel like the variety is increasing a little bit though, if only because with voice acting becoming more common and people recognizing voices more, there's a little bit of benefit to getting some different voices, perhaps
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:34 PM) lol yeah there are some really prominent VOs that will get a lot of roles, and often times big ones
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:59 PM) Oh, ok fine. You can ignore the post
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:58 PM) Nope was an error on my end
@  kirant : (26 November 2017 - 10:32 PM) Troy Baker takes an insane number of roles. Him, Matt Mercer, and Laura Bailey all seem to be plastered all over games.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2017 - 07:27 PM) Fire Blazer Yeah you are right. Just depends on how far it goes but then there is the question on what is to far or still ok.
@  Idiot : (26 November 2017 - 05:26 AM) There was a game I recently played where Troy Baker did the voice for like 4 different character. That dude is in everything.
@  Mig64 : (25 November 2017 - 05:57 AM) So I was watching the character intros for Fire Emblem Warriors, and I have to say Gharnef should've been voiced by Troy Baker.

@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:47 PM) and I think it'll stay this way for a bit. do you not like it? any alternatives that don't compromise the benefits of DLC? (e.g. Smash 4 DLC characters; would you rather delay the game for more characters, just so that they aren't released as DLC instead?)
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) and you can see how they do their mobile games, so... yeah, Nintendo was a bit late to do it, but they eventually did join the other big companies with the new way of selling games and such
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) uh, idk. I'm not against DLC as a whole, I just want it to be executed well. which to me mainly means, the original game should be a full experience, and any DLC should be extras and adequately priced; if you're selling a single costume for $1, or a single new gameplay map for $3, that kinda thing, that's way overpriced IMO.
@  xcrash1998 : (23 November 2017 - 08:12 PM) I mean in terms of how they sell their games and then there are DLC's and every thing. Nintendo is clearly going into that kind of direction. (Actually is doing that already). Not that I am against them trying to keep profit high to stay in the business but there needs to be a better way.
@  xcrash1998 : (23 November 2017 - 08:09 PM) How do you think will nintendo change in the future
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 08:55 PM) lol, perhaps
@  kirant : (13 November 2017 - 07:19 PM) I assume nostalgia hits as soon as we get old enough to "fall out" of things.
@  Rujio : (13 November 2017 - 03:57 PM) aren't we supposed to be too young for nostalgia or something?
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) yet it feels bad since somewhere in my heart I miss all that

The Last Promise... where to get started...

The Last Promise is an elaborate hack of Fire Emblem 7: Blazing Sword, casually referred to as just "Fire Emblem" in North America. The game hacks pretty much every concept that you could possibly think of--characters, classes, weapons, animations, graphics, maps, music, text, script, etc., you get the point. While this is no longer a big deal, about four years ago, when I started, it was quite a big deal, which I why I mention it the way I do.

user posted image Post-Game (06/10/13)


To start, I am Blazer, originally known as Fire Blazer, and also known as Keriku and Luffy (because I am a huge One Piece fan)... here's a quick biography about me--

- Webmaster/Administrator of the Fire Emblem Shrine
- Creator of many hacks and projects, such as Prince of Durand, The Last Promise (formerly known as Tactics Universe), Fire Emblem: Shining Armor, Fire Emblem: Prisoner of Darkness, Fire Emblem: Rebirth, Fire Emblem: Sacred Contention, Fire Emblem: One-Day Hack, Auto Emblem, and many others. I also started the Fire Emblem 12 Translation Project, which is now a team project done by the Heroes of Shadow.
- I was born in 1994 and thus am 18 years old at the time of the final release of this hack, the year 2012. I finished high school and am going to university. I enjoy playing sports such as basketball, frisbee, and track, as well as playing video games, hanging out with friends, and eating (although for the record, I am pretty skinny).

The Last Promise was, for the longest time, called "Tactics Universe" (as in, a world revolving around tactics and strategy), and before that was originally just called the "Fire Emblem Universe Game". It started off as a forum hack for the Fire Emblem Universe forums where members created profiles for characters and the forum attempted to work together to create the game.

Somehow I got involved in the mix and took on the leadership of the hacking. Soon enough just like every other forum hack, the forum hack was on the brink of death--most people considered it dead. At some point I took over and announced that I would be saving the hack, as little to no progress was being made and the people were uninvolved with the project, minus a few exceptions. Slowly but surely, with new authority and a mindset that I would complete the hack, I started making progress, and as I had already been involved in the Fire Emblem hacking business for a long time and I set high expectations for this hack, i.e. for it to not be a reskin (simply put, a hack that does not change the events), which was unheard of. Even now, I don't think a full-length game non-reskin hack has been completed.

I made a 4 chapter demo release a long time ago--well actually 5 chapters, from the Prologue of the game to Chapter 4. Eventually, I released the game up to Chapter 10, the final chapter of part 1 of the game, which focuses on Siegfried as the main character, albeit there are arguably 3 main characters in total. I made many fixes, updates, additions, etc.

I think that's enough background info for now. I've generally kept The Last Promise updated through the blog and youtube. I later posted it on the Fire Emblem Shrine, my own website, and as of the chapter 15 release I decided to post it on more forums.

Only late in the game's production did I decide to rename the game from "Tactics Universe" to "The Last Promise". I set up a public poll asking what was the best name for a new hack, after much debate on my end to limit the options. Only much later did I reveal that the new name was for this hack, and not for a new hack. It's called "The Last Promise" due to some--quite obviously--promises made by the characters, amongst other reasons, albeit that is only one of many plot aspects of the game. Play the game yourself and it should all make sense.

Introduction:

A millennium ago, on the continent of Blaine, humans and dragons fought. Humans, unable to match the power of the dragons, gathered together and saved themselves from the brink of extinction by relocating to Solum.

On this new continent, the people were divided--and over time, each territory formed its own way of life, choosing how its people would live and what ideals they would carry.

However, this all changes when Magnus, an empire with the greatest military on the continent, begins to invade the other territories. Though their campaign is time-consuming, they are successful in every way imaginable, quickly dominating Alicia to the north and Atheya to the east.

But across the continent, there are people ready to fight back to their dying breath. One of them is Siegfried, a former Knight Commander who has been in hiding ever since an injury he received from ten years ago. With his pain serving as a reminder of the vow he made that fated day, he and his son, Shon, take up arms to gather allies and do whatever it takes to stop Magnus from dominating the continent.

...Because some promises, are just worth dying for.

Everything you need to know about playing the hack will be inside the downloads. Feel free to subscribe to my youtube account or the blog for the latest videos and information!

I hope you guys play my hack and enjoy doing so! I (and many others) put lots of work into this--I myself put in thousands of hours over the span of about four years into this hack, so I hope it's good! And do tell if there are any bugs, glitches, etc., because I may very well not know about it!

Thanks!

He CAN, but you have to be careful. Make use of trees, be defensive, and try and make it so that you use the trees/forest but the soldiers don't.

Rapier is SUPER EFFECTIVE against Byron the Lion. XP. Play it as you will, but post your final end-game stats if you can. I'm very curious for everyone and discussion would be great (I mean, A Sacred Dawn gets lots of discussion, but MK's hack doesn't have tons of custom maps or custom events or anything, just lots of cameo's and OC's with very good sprites XP).

I'll download it later today and play it. I watched the trailer and it looks brilliant. All that effort finally came to fruition.

The best thing is that everything is custom, I can't be bothered playing hacks that don't change the maps around...

Yeah, the thing about playing hacks without changed maps and events is that it's like I already know what's going to happen in a way, I can expect things, it's like I'm just replaying the game but I'm calling the characters different names and giving them new looks, and maybe changing the storyline a little (but you still would have to make sure it "fits" the original game).

So I can't wait until somebody besides me makes a "full custom" hack so I can play and enjoy it, Nintenlord's Saga was GREAT but NL doesn't work on it anymore. D:

EDIT: Update with Hard Mode, sorry I forgot last night. XP

Download Hard Mode/Unlocked Savestate (VBA v1.7.2 or Higher)

^^Use the above to play Lyn's/Siegfried's Hard Mode. Changes include things like harder enemies, less units allowed in battle preps, altered inventories, and even a few altered classes. Enjoy!

The first post is being updated with v2.5.2 stuff. if you encounter a glitch in chapter 8 or the house in chapter 2 doesn't work, try this patch!!!

The house one isn't huge, as for the other one you can't play over it if it happens to you (it doesn't happen to some people). What you do is, redo the patching to another ROM, and then transfer the save file to the new fixed one, and then you start playing at the same time.

You could also do Shift+F1 in your current ROM, redo the patching as I said above, and then transfer the savestate to the fixed ROM by renaming it to "GameName#.sgm", GameName = name of the ROM and # is the Savestate #. If you put '1' then you have to press "F1" on your keyboard to load the savestate, if it's '2' you press 'F2', etc., for example "TacticsHack4.sgm", and my ROM is "TacticsHack.gba", I click F4 once I load the ROM and I go to where I just was in the bad version.

K I hope I explained it well enough. Sorry if it's confusing.
