Hi, I’m new here, and I just found a new toy called FEBuilder.
So this is basically a patch that I made for myself, but I thought I’d share this here too anyway.
This is just a FE8 reskin basically, but I replaced all the male playable characters to female characters from other FE games (mainly FE6 and FE7), akin to FEGirls patch.
But since this is just a FE8 reskin the difficulty is way lower.
If you want something different from FE8 gameplay-wise definitely check out the FEGirls patch, otherwise, feel free to try this one.
Story is pretty much unchanged so most of them won’t make any sense.
So currently there are 4 versions.
Just a reskin, stats are unchanged.
AnotherFEGirls but with skills
the same as above, but with skills system included.
Like the first one, except the stats and growth rates of the replacement characters are similar as how they are in their original games, although only for the ones that retain their class.
for example, the ones with stat change: Isadora, Gwendolyn, etc.
the ones without stat change: Rebecca (Fighter), Guinivere (Monk).
Affinity for all of the replacement characters are changed.
I also replaced “Distant Road” BGM with “Footsteps of Fate” from FE Shadow Dragon, I borrowed it from Yggdra Patch.
I just thought the song is too bright for the setting.
AnotherFEGirls but with skills V2
Basically 2 and 3 combined.
- (with skills patches) Added 2 new magic weapons, Bolt Lance (like Bolt Naginata from Fates) and Shining Bow (Bow with 1-2 Range), Initially made these just to check if Mag stat works properly but apparently magic weapons still calculated like in the original gba games, but since I’ve already put them in I decided to keep them anyway.
- “Wind Sword” is now obtainable in the main stories. (Chapter 14 in Eirika’s Route, dropped by Carlyle. Chapter 15 in Lyn’s Route, in Eirika’s inventory).
- Some extra units from outside of GBA FE games.
- Might be more, but that’s all I wanted to mention for now.
Made with FEBuilder
FE Yggdra Patch
(Latest Release: 2021/01/26)
Apply one of these to a FE8U ROM.
2021/01/19 - (ALL Patches) Changed a certain extra unit’s item from Purge to Recover.
- (without skill patches) moved Slayer skill from male bishop (enemy only) to Serra’s Bishop. (since Slayer skill is hard-coded I think this is the easiest way to fix).
- (ALL Patches) fixed CON growth for some units and fixed Lilina’s pupil animation (by removing flowing cape animation since that was hard-coded as well).
(thanks to Lumpi for pointing these out!)
- (ALL Patches) fixed some text errors on Main Story.
- When in enemy phase, and able to double attack, Mage Knight animation will be bugged, as it doesn’t wait for HP to deplete, this could be game breaking, but this doesn’t happen if you use Thunder tome, since the animation for Thunder is fast enough for it to work.
So for that bug, I’m not sure what happened and how to fix it, since I didn’t touch the Mage Knight animations at all, so unfortunately what you can do right now is just try to avoid that bug, please do let me know if you know something.
I’ve only tested this in the “with skills” versions, haven’t tried the other versions yet.
