A idea for a rom hack

One day i was looking at fan made Fire Emblem rom hack through here and on YouTube. When suddenly i get a thought of my own Fire Emblem rom hack. And i been thinking about it sense then. I will say this that i am in capable of making this hack myself. I only pitching this because i thought it would be a fun idea to me at least.

So the named of my hack would be called Fire Emblem United.

You will get to play as familiar Fire Emblem Character heroes as well as many of its villains throughout many of the games. With a unique story and a total of 70+ playable characters.

Story
The story center around the order of heroes mainly Ephraim and Eirika facing off against a group of villains led by King Zephiel and Valter. The two forces battle it out in the kingdom of Nifl. After the clash between the two factions they are interrupted by the sudden arrival of former vice minister Duke Lekain. Along with him he captured many of the deities with just one more deity he after which is Byleth/Sothis. Lekain announce his plan to both the heroes and the villains to absorb the deities powers to brainwash them to obey him. And for Lekain to harness the deity powers to become a god. So this lead to both the order of heroes and Zephiel factions to put aside they differences and join forces. So both the heroes and villains have to fight off against the Disciples of Order monsters and even some of the deities themselves to stop Lekain.

Main Playable Characters
These characters are important to the overall story.

Heroes side

Non important Playable Characters
These are all playable characters that have no involvement in the main story.

Villains side

These characters would be unlock in side quests throughout the story.

So what did you think about my idea? And if someone like it some much that they want to turn this idea for a rom hack into reality then by all mean knock you self out i guess.

Why not try to make it yourself? There’s fun to be had in crafting a story.

If I recall you said in another post that you don’t have access to a computer to do such (post was about sprites if I recall?). Doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on writing the story. You do at least have access to a phone or tablet which you can use a word processor to write something up (dialogue, notes on story events, etc.). Perhaps in the future when/if you get access to a desktop/laptop, you can apply it to your own romhack or whatnot.

I wonder if something like this has been attempted before :thinking:

Now just wait another 10 years for me to finish 20 of the 35+ chapters planned.

The idea of the hack is nice and I’m happy you shared it, but the harsh truth is that the chance of someone actually developing this hack is extremely slim. Making a hack is not something you can do in a day or two. It requires a lot of time, playtesting, thought, A LOT of resources and feedback. I myself struggle to accomplish a good balance of all these elements when developing my own hack and it is kinda logical if you’re a one man team. I have learned to work faster through experience (thanks 1h/2h blitz :3), but that does not take away that I spent a huge amount of time (5/6 years) on my own hack already.

All of the points above are things you need to consider while making a hack and most people realise that. Making a hack is not really a charity work kinda thing, because all of those time consuming elements come into play. You’ll have a higher chance of playing this idea as a hack if you develop it yourself or gather a team to help you work on it. There is a lot of groundwork and tutorials already done, so your hack could become an awesome masterpiece.

The amount of chapters (~25), in combination with the many playable and enemy characters (which will all require portraits) and other resources like maps, music, palettes, animations, tilesets, etc. are a lot of things that have to be made. Even after getting all of that together you would still have to the gameplay, story and balance of the hack, which costs a lot more time.

I would even recommend making the hack yourself, as it gets you involved with the hacks progress and design decisions. You will find out what part of your idea will and won’t work. 70+ playable characters is something that my hack also had in the first stages here on FEUniverse and others advised me to make the roster smaller. Big rosters bring a lot of downsides with them that are not only limited to gameplay, plus it increases the amount of work by a lot. Then there is also the risk of recieving something completely different from what you actually wanted in the first place if someone else starts making the hack.

I really appreciate your creativeness and the fact that you share your idea. If you really wish to see this masterpiece translated into a game however, I’d advise to learn how to make a hack yourself. Either way, I wish you good luck on future endeavours.

Changing this thread’s category to concepts, because this leans towards one person (read: idea guy) dumping their ideas into one thread wondering if a kind soul will put these brilliant ideas into a hack

To be completely blunt, all of this time you made these posts could be used to apply these ideas into your ROM, soooo eh

like what XPGamesNL said, no one cares about your ideadumping here unless you do something about it, like maybe… start applying them into the ROM? you said you are capable to make the hack yourself, then why not do it?

anyways, good luck for your hacking adventures

For all the dump that has happened so far, it doesn’t even feel like a good dump on my point of view - it’s just a massive amount of random bosses with little to no correlation on a plot that is never told.

Although being ambitious is a good thing, there’s far and then TOO far, and from one idea guy to another (and a story man myself if you squint hard enough), there are 0 things that entice me to follow into this and try to give it something further than this barebones system.

If I want a game where I start as Eirika and then the Fe8 plot suddenly turns insane and merges with another game, then Emulation Theory is there for me, and if what I want is the Heroes system, well… uh… yeah.

It just feels like a random blurb of “ideas” that are just unrealistic and off-the-ground, unknowing of the game’s own limitations.

whoop me smol brain

but anyway i agree with what Lesk said
my suggestion is to add a small summary of each chapter’s plot, at least so people know why these people are here in the first place

like for example, why do we spar with Bauker and Bernard on Bauker’s Side Quest? why do we spar with Seth? why do we need to escort Clement? what’s the premise of us protecting Anna? why are most of the people being mind controlled? i know the idea is basically every FE character is in the hack but… why are they here? how did they get here? something like that yada yada

also idr if you can have 70+ playable characters in GBAFE so… :confused:

2 Likes

I can confirm that 70+ playable characters in FEGBA is impossible. Pandan told me this when I started The Prophecy Of Flames. 70+ characters just can’t be handled by the system, as there is a cap on playable units that lies under that 70+ amount. If you go above that cap, characters will suddenly not join the party anymore and dissapear. It is possible in terms of slots, just not in terms of memory and deployment.

not if you start killing all of them for replacement units - but its true that 70+ at the same time won’t be possible, but could (and would still be hell of a mess) work with exclusive/replacement chars and such.
