I was wondering if someone is interested on making the nerfs from Fates to GBA, specifically:
[x] Can’t do double attacks
[x] Can’t do criticals
 Half of Str/Skl after use
 Negative dodge/avoid bonus
 Negative AS bonus
I think this would be a neat feature, balancing some weapons and adding variety.
Also, I don’t know if is possible to make that some units can’t be attacked by certain weapons.
There’s already a “can’t double” patch, I believe it was made by Blazer.
It was made by me.
Edit; Here’s a link to the thread with the cannot double effect: Crazycolorz5's Dump of ASM Crap
Out of these, the Cannot Critical skill one is really easy so I’ll do that quickly. To use it, set the weapon’s critical to 0xFF(255) in nightmare and it should be unable to critical.
//0xFF Critical is Cannot Crit hack for FE7.

Copy this to a text file and use EA to insert it into a ROM. (Or download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p5ol4avnq7pl4ra/0xFF%20Cant%20Critical.txt?dl=0 )
For the others, are they possible to do?
I’ve done them in FE8
Um, the Str/Skl debuff takes having more space in the save data or fitting it into the unit struct.
Negative Dodge/Avoid bonus is easily doable but a bit more incolved, and you need to decide where you’re keeping the data.
Negative AS bonus, same thing, you need to decide if you’re making it a weapon ability or storing it in a table or what…
For the Dodge/Avoid and AS, having a table would be very convenient, assigning different bonus depending on the weapon.
For the Str/Skl debuff, I don’t have idea if that would interfere with the 255 class patch (IIRC that patch modified the save data in my hack), --well, assuming you’ll help me with this.–
Sorry, this is probably the farthest I’ll go. I’m too busy modding FE8.
