For a bit now, I’ve been working on a Discord bot, similar to Oifeybot, if you’re familiar with that, but solely dedicated to FE romhacks instead of the main series. I am looking to expand the hacks it supports, and perhaps one day becoming a one-stop-shop for romhack data.
If you’d like to assist with development (granting permission for your romhack to be included, or for helping compile data), here is a link to the dev server: CromarBot dev
And for adding the bot to your servers, here is the link for that: Discord
The bot is open source, and you can see what hacks are currently supported here: github link
Cool project! Only small nitpick i have is that it would be nice to include icons like Oifeybot does, for affinities and the like. Helps with quickly seeing the relevant information.
If i may ask though, because i’m curious: Why not just add the romhacks to the Oifeybot? Is it hard to add stuff there? Does the creator not want certain romhacks? In any case though, it’s nice to have alternatives, so this is a good project either way.
Apologies for the doublepost, but a bit of an update after a week in dev. 4 more hacks are now supported by the bot, at least in part: The Road to Ruin, Vision Quest, Void’s Blitzarre Adventure, and The Last Promise. Future updates will likely include filling out support data and hard mode bonuses for Vision Quest’s units. The bot’s code has also undergone a bit of a rework for long-term extensibility, and now features auto-correct for unit names.
I would again like to extend an invitation to anyone who’d like to help out; there’s plenty of hacks out there and I haven’t the time to set up the data for all of them.
It’s out of scope, but if someone else is willing to compile the data, I’m fine with adding them.
Speaking of which, I do intend to get back to adding more hacks to CromarBot (although I have other projects I also work on, hence lack of updates recently), so as always, if you’d like to see your hack in the bot, or get another hack added, I’m always accepting compiled data.
After a bit of a break, the bot now supports Four Kings (thanks to Retina for compiling)! The OP has also been updated with a direct link for the bot so you do not need to join the bot dev server to add it to your servers.
